  • The DigiDestined go to Ken's base and destroy it. They also commit to not leave the Digital World until they've won the battle.

    After a long time, the Digimon Emperor continued to take over the Digiworld. The old kids realize they can't be of any help, so they decide to go camping while the new DigiDestined go to Ken's base and destroy it. The also commit to not leave the Digital World until they've won the battle.

    Yolei gets very confused, but then her adrenaline kicks in, and she seems more excited than any of the others. Eventually her stress gets to her causing Dokugumon to attack. Hawkmon saves Yolei, but gets poisoned, so the kids decide to split into 2 groups. One will look for Ken's base, which has moved from the spot that Cody and Izzy had found it in the day before, while the other group takes care of Hawkmon. Yolei realizes what she's done, and her and Hawkmon commit to each other to never get out of control again. Meanwhile, Gatomon finds some cat nip which drains the poison from Hawkmon. They wait in that spot, but that night they see Ken's base in the sky flying. They prepare to come up with a plan for destroying Ken's base.moreless
  • Everyone of the DigiDestined has decided that once they go to the Digital World once more, they won't return until they defeat Ken once more and Yolei's acting weird...

    Wow, now this is an episode to enjoy! Basically, this episode is about the Digidestined searching around the Digital World and after everyone settles in Tai's house, they make a conclusion where they will stay in the Digital World until Ken is defeated. Will they succeed? And most important, why is Yolei acting so weird???? This episode was quite okay and funny at the same time, with the older Digidestined going on a camping trip to ensure that the new Digidestined won't get in trouble. There are TONS of funny parts in this episode, like Davis's conversation with his sister and well I won't say too much now since I can't remember all of the funny parts........Okay now I sound forgetful. The main thing is that Yolei got like pumped up to stop Ken until she got Hawkmon hurt in the end and that was pretty sad. She even vowed to stop being so stubborn in the end???? Ha ha! In other words this was quite a nice episode to watch as well.

    Final rating: 8.5 to 8.6

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • In Kari's monologue at the beginning of the episode, she says the Digi-Destined met in the last episode to celebrate the anniversary of the first time the original Digi-Destined went to the digital world. However, in the last episode it was stated that the reunion was for the anniversary of Myotismon's defeat.

    • Once again, the female-sounding Dokugumon is referred to as a "he".

    • When they're escaping from Kuwagamon, Izzy says his "D-3"'s going wild, but he doesn't have a D-3, just an ordinary digivice.

    • When Cody and Izzy are attacked by a Kuwagamon, Cody tells "Digmon" to get him, but Armadillomon hasn't Armor Digivolved yet.

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Hawkmon (after Yolei yells at Tentomon): I'm terribly sorry, Tentomon. Yolei really doesn't mean any of this. She's been under a lot of strain lately.
      Tentomon: Well, must she yell at me? Can't she take a yoga class or something?

    • Hawkmon: It's amazing. I haven't felt this good in years, and all because of catnip. Who knew? Thanks, Gatomon.
      Gatomon: Go on! No, really, go on. I wanna hear more!

    • Yolei: I promise to stubbornly attack my problem of being stubborn, and I'll never do anything to hurt you again!
      Hawkmon: That's a relief. (Yolei hugs him tightly) You can start now!

    • Yolei: Hawkmon, what can I do to apologise?
      Hawkmon: Just... get off my tail...

    • Cody: There's a lot of control spires around here.
      Tentomon: I know! I'm getting tired of all this construction in my beautiful forest!

    • Yolei: Alright, even though I'm gonna be gone a long time and I'll miss my soap operas, I am totally up for this!
      Poromon: You're not supposed to be up at all. We went to bed hours ago. Some of us are trying to sleep. Good night! Hrm!

    • Davis: Just make up some excuse to tell her. Something like you got picked for a secret mission to Mars.
      Kari: If you told your parents that, they'd actually believe you?
      Davis: Of course not, they don't believe anything I say!

    • Digimon Emperor: So that's Kabuterimon. I think I'll add him to my collection!

    • (Ken's base has disappeared, and the DigiDestined can't find it.)
      Davis: Maybe it was a garage.
      Cody: You mean a mirage?
      Davis: No, I meant a place where the Digimon Emperor keeps his car.

    • (Yolei is hammering a stake in the ground next to the pit.)
      Tentomon: What is she doing now?
      Hawkmon: I'm not going to ask her as long as she has that hammer in her hand.

    • Izzy: Lucky Matt. Girls must chase him all day.
      Tai: I know exactly how he feels.

    • Kari:If we destroy the Emperor's base, then the Control Spires would be useless!
      TK: That makes sense!
      Davis: So then why are we sitting around like a bunch of Yahoos? I say we go to the Digital World, find his base, and rip it up like a bad cheque!

    • Digmon: Do I know how to dig a hole, or what?

    • Tentomon: Tentomon, digivolve to....oh, forget it. I can't digivolve!
      Digimon Emperor: How many times do I have to tell you people? You're sitting in the 'no-digivolving' section!
