Digimon World 2003 PAL version FAQ By Mykas0 Mykas0 [at] hotmail.com version 0.5 12-6-2004 I decided to write this FAQ since there is much info about the PAL version of the game "Digimon World 3", which was called "Digimon World 2003" since one of the Digimon games never reached here (Digimon World 2). In this FAQ will cover some facts I consider important about playing this version of the game, but most of what I write here may be applied to other versions worldwide. Please notice that I will also write about things that players care, so I won't make a a list of every digimon you can see/control in this game or even a list of techs. Mainly, I just say what you should use and how to get it. I must warn you that this FAQ is full of spoilers, so if you really wanna have some fun playing this game, don't read this faq unless you really need to. ATTENTION, I WILL JUST REPLY TO E-MAILS CONCERNING THIS FAQ, so if you have any questions about a walktrough, storyline, getting a specific item or "where do you should go next", don't e-mail me, since I won't be the right person to answer those. THANKS! HUM... This faq may only be published at GAMEFAQS ( www.gamefaqs.com ) and at my website ( www.geocities.com/Mykas0 ). If you want to use it just ask me, I will surely give you permission. And you may print this faq but only for home use, and you may NEVER (NEVER, I SAID!!!) charge any money for it! FIRST OF ALL, how do you know if you have the pal version? Easy, just read the main title screen. If it says "Digimon World 2003", it's because you have the pal version. If it says "Digimon World 3" or anything else it's because you have any version other than pal. Don't mail me more asking about this, people! -__-'''' 1. Levelling up 2. Beating Knightmon 3.

It is different from digimon to digimon, so I believe that Agumon is one of the most difficult to level up, but I heard the same goes for Veemon. So, the places which are better to level up are: -- Asuka and Amaterasu's Jungle Shrine (near Ether Jungle), those Numemon's inside are hard to defeat but they give you lots of money and experience. Also, you can find Zambamon (or, if in the Amataresu Server, a digi-evoltution of Patamon, I don't recall its name) there, but he is hard to defeat. -- North Sector in both servers, the digimon you find there are quite strong and they give much experience. If you need to level up the digi-evolutions, you can also do it on those places, most of the times 200 EXP is enough to level up. When it gets between level 90 and 95 it will be most difficult to level up, so I think it is better to continue playing and try to get to level 99 naturally. 2.~ Beating Knightmon Nope, you can't beat them. No no no! What, you leveled up your Agumon until level 99, he can digievolve to Imperialdramon PM and you can have him DNA DV with another digimon in order to use Ancient Greymon? Nope, you still can't beat him. What? For some reason I don't understand, you hacked the game and you have infinite HP? ... I don't help people who cheat like that! =/ 3.~ DRI Agents In order to get new digimon partners you need to find his DRI Agent, get the DDNA for the Digimon he requested (which will include finding that digimon and defeat him in a fight) and return that DDNA to the DRI Agent so that he will give you that digimon. There are also other conditions that must be fulfilled, which will be referred now. You can only get those quests when you have them fulfilled, but you can give the DDNA back whenever you want, I just think it is a good idea to get them before heading to Asuka's North Sector. 3.1 Agumon You need to go to Tyranno Valley after winning the first badge (Seiryu Badge) and the combined level of the digimon on your team must be between 30 and 59. He will ask you for MetalGreymon's DDNA, and you must go to Bulk Swamp (in South Sector) and defeat him. 3.2 Guilmon You can find his DRI Agent at Seiryu City, after getting the first badge and having a combined level between 30 and 59. He will ask you to get Guilmon's DDNA from WarGrowlmon, and you can find this digimon at Ether Jungle, be careful since he is quite hidden. 3.3 Kotemon You'll see this DRI Agent in the confusing Mobius Desert, if you have a combined level between 60 and 89 he will ask you to get Kotemon's DDNA from Kyukimon, who you can find at Suzaku City's Underground Lake. 3.4 Kumamon His DRI Agent will be found in the Mobius Desert, and he will ask you to get Kumamon's DDNA from Grapleomon, who you can find in the Ether Jungle, be careful since you can only go to that section of Ether Jungle by taking the left path on Phoenix Bay's dock. 3.5 Monmon If you care to get this digimon (I don't like him it all...), you can find his DRI Agent in Mobius Desert and he will ask you to get Monmon's DDNA from Armormon, who you will find in the "secret" Duel Island, which you can access by going underwater in Divermon's Lake. You combined level must be between 60 and 89. 3.6 Patamon It is quite easy to find his DRI Agent, he will appear in Asuka's Central Park when you have 2 badges (Seiryu and Suzaku badge) and the combined level of the digimon on your team must be between 45 and 74. You will be asked to go get Patamon's DDNA from MangaAngemon, which you can find in South Badland, on West Sector. 3.7 Renamon Her DRI Agent can be found on top of Leomon's Gym, in Asuka's Central Park, but only after you have 2 badges and a combined level between 45 and 74. You will be prompted to get Renamon's DDNA from Taomon, who you can find in North Badland W, West Sector. 3.8 Veemon This one his the hardest to get... You must have 3 badges (Seiryu, Suzaku and Byakko), have ONLY one digimon on your team, and his level must be between 1 and 29. Then, go to Protocol Ruins and find his DRI Agent, who will ask you to get Veemon's DDNA from Paildramon, which you can find at Bulk Bridge. 4.~ Useful DNA Evolutions Please notice there are much more DNA Evolutions than those I refer, but these are the ones I find useful. X-Veemon + Stingmon = Paildramon This is a quite useful DNA Evolution, since you can get it early in the game and it is quite powerful. Wargrowlmon + Digitamamon = Megagargomon Another powerful DNA Evolution, good even when you arrive at Amaterasu server. Taomon + MagnaAngemon = Phoenixmon YOU MUST GET THIS ONE, every time you use it, increases the defensive power of every digimon on your team (for a short time) and revives and COMPLETELY HEALS every digimon on your party. Really good! 5.~ Useful Digimon Like for the DNA Evolutions, I'll just list the ones I find useful. *** Agumon Yep, this one is quite good since with him you'll be able to learn lots of powerful evolutions, and most of them are in this list. *** Kabuterimon He has a good poison tech, so he is kinda useful even at the end of the game. *** MagnaAngemon His Healing skills can be really useful if you don't want to be buying healing items all the time. *** Wargrowlmon His Finisher is quite good early in the game, plus you need him if you want to get Gallantmon, who also rocks. *** BlackWargreymon He has a very useful black tech, which strikes 3 times, plus a great Finisher. *** Gallantmon The only good thing about this one is that he has a Finisher which counters the opponent attack and increases its damage, so it may be kinda useful in the fight against Gallacticmon's tail. *** Imperialdramon He learns a healing skill at level 5, making it a great help, apart from all the other moves. *** Omnimon He is quite good... high defense and attack, good attack and many other things... as you may have imagined, from the anime. Also, he is required to get Imperialdramon Paladin Mode. 6.~ Beating Gallacticmon Since I don't believe that all your Digimon are at the same level, I think that the best way to win is by having a digimon with high strenght to attack Gallacticmon's tail (DON'T USE TECHS, since I believe that Gallacticmon can learn those techs and then use them against you. Maybe you can fight this by using weak techs against him, so that later on he attacks you with weak techs, although I'm not sure of this) and have the two other digimons DNA DV to Phoenixmon when the striking Digimon dies. When you kill him it, it will strike with a strong laser and your digimon will drop his HP to 1, so I belive you can use Phoenixmon again or just heal him with items. Then, continue striking with the main digimon until you kill Gallacticmon. Use Blast Evolution (even if you need to use a DV Plug), and strike with the finisher from the new digimon that appears, once it returns to the original digimon keep on striking with that digimon and using Phoenixmon when he dies. Eventually you will win, this battle isn't MUCH hard at all. 7.~ After beating Gallacticmon So, now, the section you all waited for... Exclusive for the PAL version (well, maybe you could do it in the japanese version, I don't know, never tried that... if you have this version, why should I bother playing the japanese one?), you are able to continue playing and get other quests AND EVEN PLAYING ON A TOURNAMENT. So, what do you have to do? Easy! First, buy the original PAL version (yeah, this game is worth the money you spend on it) and play it up to the fight against Gallacticmon. Now, defeat him, see the ending movie (not very good... =(((( ) and wait until the Credits finish rolling. Now, you'll see the kid you played with (I don't remember his name) in Kusanagi Corner with his friends and they will go to play in Digimon World again. Kurt has now taken MAGAMI's place has "leader" of Digimon Online. By now you can only access Amaterasu Central and East Sectors, you can also try to enter the tournament but you are told that you must get 4 medals before being able to play on it. Now, go to Qing Long City and try fighting the leader, he will tell you that to fight him you need to find the 5 EPIC ITEMS. Now, you can find the leaders to get the medals in this places: - Qing Long City (where you fight the leader); - Tyranno Valley (where Master Tyrannomon used to be); - Protocol Ruins (where Pharaomon used to be); - Protocol Ruins (where that city leader once was). So, now you can try to fight them, but how can you do so? The easiest way to do so is by getting the 5 LV4 weapons BEFORE fighting Gallacticmon, since getting those weapons after beating him poses you much trouble. MORE INFO TO COME! 8.~ Card game As you may have seen, you can now easily find Black Agumon and Nunemon in Circuit Board, you can also enter a new tournament, just go to the duel island and you'll find that a new tournament is happening there, at the top you'll find a "weird character" (as referred in the game). Actually, he is Keith... Here, you will find the toughest characters I've seen in card battling, so have your best decks prepared... At the end, you just win a Trophy and a 15a booster. Please be prepared against Darkness Gale and all those strange cards, because they will surely appear in this matches! 9.~ Funny things - Persiamon is able to de-digievolve your digimon, so it may happen that your digimon blasts to an amazing digimon and then he goes back to his rookie form. Not very funny, but "interesting"; - If you search near the entrance to Qing Long City, on the left site (before entering the city) you'll find a giant Cactuar (yep, he really looks like those monsters from the FF series) craved on the rocks. 10.~ About Impmon, Lopmon and many others Due to the ammount of rumors I've been hearing about getting those 2 digimons and many others, I posted an article made by myself on the boards, article which I re-wrote for here... "Those digimons aren't in the game... And how can I prove this? Easy! Based on my computer and rpg skills, I know that the number of digimons in this game is at least 255 ^ x (the number of possible combinations of 2x hex characters), being x more or equal to 1. So, you just stick to the gameshark, get the codes for picking a certain digimon and input all the possible codes one by one, some of them must be just "testing things" (I mean, digimons that don't appear in the game and were only made for testing purposes) but at the end you will surely find that THEY AREN'T IN THE GAME! So, please help stopping those fake codes from spreading!" Hope this concludes this discussion... 11.~ Contacts You may contact me by my e-mail, Mykas0 [at] hotmail.com .
