Plot Summary

Opening Theme

"Butter-Fly" by Kouji Wada

The group of kids end up on a beach while searching for some way out of the digital world. On this beach they see a row of telephone booths. They then come up with the idea to call home and get some help and be rescued. Unfortunately the phones did not work and the plan failed. After the failure the kids and their digimon partners realized that they were hungry. Luckily they had an emergency sack full of food. While eating though, they were attacked by a giant digimon called Shellmon. All of the kids' digimon tried to fight back, but were beaten back. Right before the group could be destroyed, Agumon digivolved into Greymon, a much stronger digimon, and defeated Shellmon, saving the kids.

The seven DigiDestined and their Digimon are falling from a cliff towards a river. So Gomamon "summons" his fish friends and tells them to swim close together. The fish act like a raft. The kids arrive at shore and discover that their in-training pals are now in rookie form because they have Digivolved. The new digimon introduce themselves and explain to the kids that they were able to digivolve because they shared energy with their partners. The kids try to figure out where they are and what to do next. Tai tells the group that he saw a beach and ocean. The group follows him while Joe protests that they should stay put until the grown ups come get them. While walking, the kids start to get acquainted to their digimon. They arrive at the beach and discover many telephone booths and try them. However only weird facts and nonsense are heard from the phones. The children then rest and are very hungry. They each take out what they have. Unfortunately, in the food category they only have T.K.'s snacks and emergency rations from Joe. They also rediscover the little devices on their pants or bags. Joe then splits the food but it can only be good for a day with the digimon. The digimon say that they are alright and that they can manage for themselves however Tai still gives some food to Agumon. Suddenly Shellmon appears, and is very angry that the children are on his territory. He begins to attack them.

So the seven chosen digimon attempt to fight Shellmon, but none of their attacks work besides Agumon's since he ate and the rest are hungry. The other digimon are not able to fight. Tai helps by making a diversion. Then Shellmon grabs Tai and traps Agumon under his paw. Right when Shellmon is going to attack everyone else, Tai's Digivice glows and Agumon Digivolves to Greymon. Shellmon drops Tai, the two champion levels fight. Greymon defeats Shellmon, blasting him through the air and into the ocean. Greymon reverts back to Agumon who is now exhausted and hungry. The children quickly feed their digimon. Joe is still trying to use the phone booths but they are all smashed. They all realize the Shellmon isn't dead and could still come back. They need to leave. The group then heads off, ready for whatever digimon may be out there to fight!
