[edit] Available Digimon

These are the three digimon you end up with in the beginning based on your guardian team preference.

[edit] Secret Digimon

In this game there are three digimon you can obtain in a special way. You need a particular digimon with 20 Digivolution Points.

Omnimon: In order to get this digimon you will have to raise a MetalGreymon with 20 DP to a mega form. If it has the needed DPs it will digivolve into Omnimon, instead of digivolving into WarGreymon. Omnimon's tech is Trancendent Sword and it paralyzes the other person.

Diaboromon: You need to raise an Okuwamon with 20 DP to its mega form. Diaboromon has Inferno Missiles and it hits all foes. *Note: this attack does not have any status effect.

Baihumon: You need to raise Meteormon to a mega form (20DP). His tech is Kongou and it gives invincibility status to one of your digimons. The effect of this assist disappears only if the digimon given invincibility status attacks.

[edit] Digivolution

Digivolution plays an important role in this game. It is the process of advancing from one state to another, making your digimon stronger and allowing it to learn more techniques. Not all digimons can become Megas or Ultimates though but those are exceptions and you won't see many of them. To digivolve a digimon you will need to visit the digi lab in a town.

  • Champion - A rookie digimon can digivolve to the Champion stage after level 11.
  • Ultimate - A champion digimon can digivolve to a Ultimate at level 21 or above.
  • Mega - A ultimate can digivolve to a Mega at level 31 or more.

[edit] DNA Digivolution

If you DNA Digivolve two of the same digimon you will get its rookie form. For example: Greymon + Greymon = Agumon I am not going to tell you all the results from the DNA-Digivolving. Instead of that I will try to teach you how to do it correctly. It will be more interesting if you learn the results by yourself.

There is a level limit for each stage of digimon. For rookies it is usually 13. You will know your digimon has reached the max level when there is nothing else in the EXP gauge other than 99999999999.


To continue your digimon’s development you will have to DNA Digivolve it with another digimon. To help you out with determining the max level it will have as a champion after the DNA Digivolution I will show you a few formulas uses to calculate this. They are easy to understand and are useful if you are one of those people making plans on how to raise their digimons.

Maximum Level Calculation:

To calculate the estimated maximum level after a DNA Digivolution do the following. See the level of the digimon with the higher level from the two. Then take the second digimon’s level (the lower level) and divide it by four (rounded down). Add the number you got after dividing it to the level of the first digimon and that’s the max level the “newborn” digimon will be able to reach. If someone wishes to edit this correctly then do so, because I won't. But the game does not automatically add the lower leveled digimon's level/4 onto the higher level digimon's. It adds the second digimon's level that you choose(divided by 4) onto the first digimon's level. Example:

A level 15 digimon + 1 level 17 digimon. Digimon’s Max Level = 15 + 17/4 = 15 + 4 = 19.

Digimon's Level & Types After DNA Digivolution

  • Champion + Champion = Rookie
  • Ultimate + Champion = Rookie
  • Ultimate + Ultimate = Champion
  • Mega + Champion = Rookie
  • Mega + Ultimate = Champion
  • Mega + Mega = Ultimate
  • Vaccine + Vaccine = Vaccine
  • Data + Data = Data
  • Data + Vaccine = Data
  • Virus + Virus = Virus
  • Virus + Data = Virus
  • Virus + Vaccine = Vaccine

[edit] Extra Domain

Tera Domain (The largest domain in the whole game. It has 99 floors and is full of strong Megas. If you beat it you may find an extra Digimon - Kimeramon. I, myself, have finished this domain three times but I don't have it yet because the possibility to encounter it is 1/666)

[edit] Tips, Tricks & Facts

Did you know that...

Vaccine digimon have the highest speed. Virus digimon have the highest attack. Data digimon have the highest defense.

Digimon can't die!
If one or more of the digimon in your digi-line die, DO NOT remove them from it, as you can't put them back in until they are revived. If you want to have them back, just return to the city and they will be resurrected.

Hung on Death’s secret effect
Everyone knows what Hung on Death makes, it revives a stunned digimon but there is something else you don’t know

  1. If you use it on a digimon that is not stunned it does full hp recovery to it.
  2. It can be used both as a healing technique and invincibility and it is worth trying because Meteormon's invincibility, for example, requires 20mp as well but it doesn’t heal your digimon.

So Hung on Death is actually a multi-functional Assist!

Metal Etemon’s Banana Slip
When you confuse Metal Etemon, it uses Banana Slip on its own party members, but instead of assist, the sign Attack will appear on the screen!

Giga Cannon Cannot Be Countered
You cannot counter Giga Cannon, even if it is made only once to your digimon!

Max Items
You can only have 99 items of the same kind in your Server. There are 161 different items in the game.

No More Return Bugs
Return bugs cannot invade your Digi-Beetle if your server is full with digimon! (This can be helpful when going through Tera Domain. Just fill the Server with whatever Rookie Digimon you find!) Tip: Although your server must be full at any moment for this to work, make sure you leave space in your Digi-Beetle, in case you have to catch a wild digimon on your way. Otherwise you won’t be able to even if you have a DM-Transfer equipped on your Digi-Beetle.

Terra Domain?
Although the Latin word "terra" which means "earth" is spelled with a double "r", the name of the domain in the game is actually Tera Domain and not "Terra Domain" as some people like to spell it. The name "Tera" comes from "Terabyte", which is a unit of measuring hard disk space. A similar case exists, concerning Megabyte and Gigabyte, with the File Island domains "Mega Domain" and "Giga Domain".

Worth Taking from Tera Domain
There are 4 ToyPlanes on the 98 floor of Tera Domain. There are some Armor, Speed, Power and EXP chips on the 99 floor.

Sometimes, when you go through a landmine with your Digi-Beetle, it damages your machine in such a way that you are unable to navigate straight. If this happens, your navigational controls will be randomized for a few following movements, and you will have to find out which buttons allow you to control your Digi-Beetle normally, unless you want to go into more traps while wandering aimlessly. To do that, just hold down the R1 button. This is something like a handbrake and allows you to spin around without moving your digibeetle. Now you can experiment with the directional keys until you figure out how to go straight again. The effect of the mine wears out shortly but it’s enough for some of the worst things to happen.

Walking Diagonally
You can navigate your Digi-Beetle diagonally but the digimon in the domains can’t do it. Take advantage of that, if you wish to escape quickly without engaging in combat with any enemy.

DNA Digivolution
If you DNA Digivolve two of the same digimon you will get its rookie form. For example: Greymon + Greymon = Agumon

Specialty Floors
If a Digimon of a certain element lurks on its respective specialty floor in a domain, it can't move off the specialty area. This is very useful when you want to catch a certain Digimon; just stand back and drown the Digimon with gifts!

Know Your Strength!
Vaccine digimon are strong against Virus digimon, Data digimon are strong against Vaccine digimon and Virus digimon have advantage over Data digimon. Remember this and use it in your favor.

Dark Shot's Secret Multi-hit!
There is a glitch when using SkullGreymon's Dark Shot. If it is interrupted by Clockmon's Chrono Breaker, its target data will mess up. The attack itself will not have a voice stream when initiated, and instead of one random enemy, it will hit all enemies! Note: this glitch is NOT harmful.

Shadow Scythe Secret Multi-hit!
Similarly, there is also another glitch that involves an interrupt. If a Digimon, who is using Phantomon's Shadow Scythe, is interrupted by an enemy Digimon, the target data will once again mess up. This time, it involves the re-attack that would happen if Shadow Scythe kills an enemy; if the initial Shadow Scythe is interrupted, it will trigger the secondary attack. However, the secondary attack will be repeated several times, even if it does not defeat an enemy prior! Remember this when you fight against an enemy that can interrupt.
