  • Truble in Koromon Village

    It's really cute when the boys go into the bathroom. When searching for Mimi they think that somwthing serious has gone wrong, but truthfully she just wanted a bath. Sora, being a girl and all, reconizes this and warns the boys. But, they didn't listen. Then Sora is like "I told you not to go in there." The boys overreact and make funny faces. But then we they're all together later, they act like nothing happened at all.

    Why does the rabbit digimon, Gazimon, I think need a haircut. Well, it's funny but in more a stupid way.

    Etemon in very self obsorbed he needs to get overhimself. But with all the praise it doesn't get better. I don't really like the fact that he is like an Elvis impersonater. I like Elvis and find it a little insulting to him. I don't blame the creaters, though. Any person they chose would afend someone, this one just bugs me. He also doesn't appear to have an signifigant power, so one wonders how he got to be in charge.

    Tokomon gets kidnapped just because he digivolved. It's so sad.

    The Gazimon's power is electric sunglass, how weird.

    Agumon shows that he truely is smart. Like Tai, when pushed to the limit he can step it up.moreless
  • "Oh, great. A digi-rockstar."

    "Oh, great. A digi-rockstar."

    That's Etemon for ya! An Elvis-impersonating monkey digimon whose attacks are as devastating as his singing (especially when he combines the two for his Concert Crush attack).

    So, what happens is, the Digidestined arrive at Server... yadda, yadda, yadda... find out about a Koromon village... blah, blah, blah... go there only to find a Pagumon village... so on and so forth... Pagumon are nice to them... okay... Tai and Izzy see Mimi taking a bath... then big revelation: the Pagumon are evil!

    Poyomon digivolves to Tokomon (yay! now he's back to the way he first appeared and will stay that way for the rest of the story arc). The Pagumon kidnap him, the Gazimon find out. Then Etemon appears! Everyone hates him because he's stupid but he gets a better story arc.

    One thing leads to another. Agumon discovers the kidnapped Tokomon and a lot of Koromon who were locked up by the Pagumon. Everyone else shows up so Greymon defeats the two Gazimon that attacked him. The Digidestined battles Etemon whose rock-and-roll abilities drain the chosen digimon's power. The Digidestined escape and Tai finds his crest.moreless
  • The beginning of Etemon's legacy... if you call it a legacy...

    So they make it to Server. What new enemy awaits the DigiDestined? Well, we don't know at first. All we see are some freaky, yet suspicious Pagumon. They kidnap Tokomon, and the evil Gazimon are revealed, who work for the eviler (not a word, but it's not like anyone's ever gonna read this review) Etemon is revealed, who strikes all of us as a DigiElvis. He can keep the Digimon from digivolving, which makes him a worthy adversary.moreless

    • Etemon was added to the show out of the fact he was one of the 1st evil Digimon minion of Daemon that Tai and Zeromaru the Veedramon encountered in the V-Tamer comics. He was later killed off by Neo Saiba who used a Devimon and an Ogremon that can DNA Digivolve to SkullSatamon.
