====================================================================

A few words: This is my first attempt at writing faq, so it's not 
going to be the best faq you'll ever seen. Probably this will be the 
only faq I'll write. The reason I do it in the first place because 
there are not many guides that come out on this game and I know that 
there are a lot of people are struggling to finish this game. The 
other reason is that the game does not have any map in it. The enemy 
encounter is quite frequent and the save point is quite far apart, 
which could be frustrating for some gamers. So I'm attempting the 
"mapped" version on the walkthrough. Hope the guide can helps. 
Credits also given to those people that wrote on the message Board,

====================================================================

A) Tips & FAQ:

====================================================================
1. About Digivolution (evol) -
------------------------------ 
- How it works - The way the digivolution system work in this game 
is that after fulfilling certain requirements (check your evolution 
chart), your digimon can digivolve into a new/stronger digimon. 

- How to digivolve - The digivolution can only happen during the 
battle. A new command called "Digisoul Charge" will appear after all 
the requirements are fulfilled, so you just have to select that 
command. 

- Why digivolve - It is recommended to select this whenever it is 
available as sometimes you can digivolve into many new digimons 
consecutively (like a chain reaction) and gain stronger version of 
the digimon after all the requirements for those digimon were 
already met (normally in terms of stats such as strength, agility, 
etc). For example, my Lalamon digivolve more than 10 times in a row 
without even noticing that I've met many requirements 
simultaneously). Another thing to note is that your health is also 
automatically replenished.

- Why digivolve earlier - It is also important to digivolve as 
quickly as possible in order to get the Mega digimon that you want 
as the emotion requirement such as "very good friend with tamer" is 
much harder to fulfill the longer you played the game. In my case, 
even after reaching the last area and using all my money to buy 
friendship drink (around 8-10 drinks), I still cannot digivolve my 
Machgaogamon to Miragegaogamon because of the bad relationship I had 
with my Gaomon although I've already fulfilled the other 
requirements long time ago. So hope you will not do the same 
mistake. So always make sure that you always select the command your 
digimon wants to use the most if you want to maintain a very good 
relationship with your digimon. You can also last longer in the game 
with stronger evolved form although at a low level. 

- Non-suitable time to digivolve - There is also a case where your 
digimon will digivolve into weaker digimon, so always keep track of 
your digimon evolution chart so that it will not happen during a 
boss fight. 

- Note on Marcus's agumon digivolution - Another important note is 
that for Marcus, he will attack the enemy first before digivolving 
his Agumon. So better make sure you find a higher level enemy that 
can withstand his attack to complete the digivolution as the 
evolution will not happen if the enemy died first from his attack. 

- What to do with the digivolved form - After you have all the new 
evolution, you can choose which form of evolution you want to use 
during the battle by selecting it in the evolution map. 

- Time to use weaker form - There are times that you want to use the 
weaker form of your digimon. For example reduce 2 of your digimon to 
the version with low agility in order to make the one you want to 
level up get his turn quicker; or to fulfill the requirement of 
receiving certain amount of damage (50,000 damage for some megas 
digivolution requirement). 

====================================================================  
2. Fighting/winning strategy ((figh)
------------------------------------
Same as other strategy game, there is always a standard method of 
winning a fight even at low level. The one that I use for this game 
normally consists of finding out the enemy's weakness, increasing 
your defense, increase your attack power and attack the weakness. In 
this game, normally I can defeat a boss at low level just with a 
single attack after a couple of turns using the same strategy. Based 
on the digimon that I normally use, which is Miragegaogamon 
(Gaomon's Mega), Shinegreymon (Agumon's mega), Rosemon (Lalamon's 
mega), the command/item that I normally use especially against 
bosses(not in particular order) are:

a) G Agility Up (Increase agility) - Your digimon will have his turn 
quicker. Useful for digimon with low agility.  Normally I use my 
Miragegaogamon to cast it on Rosemon or Shinegreymon first, and 
lastly on himself since he is the quickest and the other 2 is much 
slower than him. Most bosses have high agility, which means that 
they can kill you without having the chance to cast any spell. 
That's why for me this is quite important.

b) Resist Mega/Ultimate/Champion -Increase defense. Useful against 
bosses and Mega digimon that deals huge/lethal damage. Normally I 
use my Rosemon to cast it on herself or Miragegaogamon first, and 
lastly on Shinegreymon who got the highest defense.

c) Search weakness - Display the enemy's weakness.
Normally I use Miragegaogamon's command or using Rosemon to use the 
item Search Weakness, whichever necessary.

d) Field Enchant eg. Use VB Enchant when fighting against NSo after 
finding out the weakness - Increase your digimon's attack damage 
based on the enemy's race/weakness. Normally I use the command on my 
strongest attacker, which is Shinegreymon, or the one that you want 
to deliver the finishing blow.

e) Attack weakness - Enchant this on your attacker, and the attack 
damage will double based. But make sure you have cast the right 
field enchant first. Normally I use it on my Shinegreymon after 
casting the Field Enchant. 

f) Attack x 2 - Cast on your attacker to double your attack power. 

g) Rank Drive command eg. Mega drive - Increase attack based on your 
digimon's rank. Cast on your attacker to increase damage. Normally I 
use it on my Shinegreymon to boost damage. After casting Field 
Enchant, Attack Weakness, Attack x 2 and Rank drive, this could 
increase your attack power up to 4-6 times and most of the time 
kills the boss with just a single attack. Coupled with Field Drive 
and Critical Up, your attacker can definitely deliver lethal damage.     

h) Critical up (optional) - cast on your attacker to increase chance 
of inflicting critical attack

i) Field Drive eg. DR Drive (optional) - Further increase your 
attacker's attack power based on your digimon's race/type

j) Double attack (optional) - cast on your attacker so that he'll 
attack twice consecutively 

k) Invisible (optional) - With this item, the enemy will not attack 
you for a few rounds. Useful especially during bosses fights. You 
can cast it on your healer/supporter or your main attacker. If you 
cast it on your healer, then he can revive the others who died and 
if you cast it on your attacker than the fight could have a higher 
rate of success. However, the cons of this item is that the enemy 
will not attack you, which means that it'll be tougher for you to 
get the higher level Mega digivolution that have the specific 
requirement of receiving a certain amount of damage (for example, 
one of the requirement for Lalamon to digivolve to Lucemon is to 
receive 50,000 damage, which is a lot). At higher level it'll be 
tougher for you to receive large damage, so that's why in the end I 
just use this item once while fighting Darkdramon with my digimon at 
level 31. I just cast it on my Lalamon (with a Rosemon mega 
digivolution) and let my Agumon (with a Shinegreymon mega 
digivolution) do the attacking, and it makes the fight much easier 
even at low level. 

l) Field resist eg. NSO Resist - cast it on your digimon if you 
think that they cannot handle the damage deal by the enemy. 
Personally I don't use this one because I want the enemy to deal 
huge damage in order to fulfill the receiving damage requirement. 

m) Heal/Revive command or item - Whenever necessary

====================================================================
3. Useful map items (item) 
---------------------------
a) Low encounter - Useful if you are the type who prefer less 
fighting. Also extremely useful in annoying or large places with a 
few save points, for example the Sea Precipice Jerapilus.

b) No encounter - Buy it from Chuumon at area 10, Ice Labyrinth. The 
item is also available at the headquarter after you have met 
Chuumon. 

c) Friend/Affection drink - Increase relationship with your digimon. 
Useful for your digivolution requirement. However it is quite 
expensive and you might have to spend your whole money to buy it if 
you have a bad relationship with your digimon, like I did. Buy it 
from Chuumon in Ice Labyrinth. But it is only available after you 
keep on spending money at his shop.

d) Return key - if you are in a hurry to save the game and do 
something else; and cannot find a save point, just use this item to 
return to DATS. Also for those who are lazy to walk all the way back 
to the starting point, especially for large places. 

====================================================================
4. About the selection of command that appear on the screen (sele)
------------------------------------------------------------------
A thing to note is that, the number and the type of command on 
display also depends on the Digimon's emotion (eg. tense, strong, 
caring, anger). So it is important for you to alter its emotion to 
get the right command that you need during battles. This can be done 
by selecting support command (eg. Push, Look Around, Tighten)until 
you get the desired command. Normally a tense character will have a 
majority of attack command, a caring character with majority of 
guard command, and strong character with a balance set of command. 
Sometimes, really tense character can also display really powerful 
attack, for example Geogreysword for Shinegreymon.       

====================================================================
5. How to switch command and increase the number of command that 
appear on the screen while maintaining good relationship with your 
digimon (swit) 
-------------------------------------------------------------------
In order to maintain good relationship with your digimon, you have 
to select the command that the digimon wants to use the most, which 
is equivalent to how many times those command appear on your screen. 
If you want to switch from attack command to guard command, you have 
to make sure that more guard command appear on the screen first in 
order to maintain the good relationship. This can be done by using 
support command like cheer up, tighten, push, look around, etc. So 
you just have to play around with support command in order to get 
the right set of command for you. For example, for Lalamon, normally 
I will increase its sympathy (Look around/Look closely) to increase 
the number of its guard command (yellow coloured)or increase its 
tension (Tighten) to increase the number of its attack command (red 
coloured). The same strategy also work with Agumon and Gaomon 
sometimes. 

====================================================================
6. Fulfilling digivolution requirement (fulf) 

====================================================================

6a. Fulfilling dealing damage requirement (deal)
------------------------------------------------

An example of this digivolution requirement is for Agumon to deal 
1000 damage in a single attack in order to digivolve to Risegreymon. 
If you want to inflict huge damage on enemy in a single attack and 
fulfil the requirement, you can follow these steps: 
1. Make sure you are at high level and strong form of digivolution 
and then go find weak enemy (in area 1, Walter Island or area 2, 
Sneyato Forest)
2. Cast Agility Up on your attacker if you have to.   
3. Cast Search Weakness on the enemy to find its weakness (you can 
skip this if you already know its weakness)
4. Cast field enhant (eg. VB enchant)on your digimon based on 
enemy's weakness
5. Cast Attack Weakness
6. Cast rank drive based on your digimon's level (eg. Mega Drive) 
7. Cast field drive based on your digimon's type (eg. DR Drive), 
8. Cast Attack x2
9. Cast Critical Up 
This should deal very huge damage especially if it is a critical 
attack.  

====================================================================
6b. Fulfilling receiving damage requirement (rece)
--------------------------------------------------
An example of this requirement is for Lalamon to receive a total of 
50,000 damage throughout the game in order to digivolve to Lucemon. 
As the game progress, your character will become stronger and 
normally receive less damage, especially at higher level with strong 
forms of digivolution. That is why this requirement can be quite 
annoying sometimes, especially at a later stage. There are a few 
ways to do this: 
1. Earlier in the game, when you are at low level and still in the 
weak form like a Rookie or Champion, just prolong the fight and let 
your enemy kick your ass for a couple of turn. The effect is even 
better if you are fighting a boss. 
2. When you are fighting bosses or Mega level digimon, besides 
prolonging the fight, you can also lower down your agiliy in order 
for the enemy to attack more frequently. Just be careful no to die 
or it will be game over.
3. If you are already at a high level, just switch to a Rookie or 
Champion form to lower your stats. You can also use items that 
decrease your defense.
4. If you want your enemy just to attack a single digimon, just use 
the Provoke command or Consent item.  

====================================================================
6c. Fulfilling the defeating digimon requirement (kill) 
-------------------------------------------------------
The requirement is normally specific to the digimon, not on the 
team. For example, if the digivolve requirement for Agumon is to 
defeat 5 VB digimon or 5 ultimate, if he kills a VB or an ultimate 
by delivering the finishing blow, then its already count as one 
digimon down. But if Gaomon who is in the team that delivered the 
finishing blow, then it count as one digimon defeated by Gaomon, not 
by Agumon or the whole team. The exception for the requirement is 
only when you are required to defeat the optional bosses. For 
example, for Lalamon to digivolve to Minervamon, the requirement is 
to defeat Minervamon. So even if anyone else besides Lalamon 
delivered the finishing blow, the requirement for Lalamon is still 
fulfilled. 

===================================================================
6d. Fulfilling defeating Mega's requirement (mega)
-------------------------------------------------- 
An example of this requirement is to defeat 40 Mega digimon in order 
to digivolve from Agumon to Omnimon. Megas are quite rare in the 
game and that is why this requirement can be quite annoying to some 
players (like me). So you have to plan properly which digimon that 
you want to digivolve to Mega first earlier in the game if you are a 
lazy type of gamer. 

My recommendation is either one of these:
- Gaomon (Defeat 5 Megas to get Miragegaogamon)
- Falcomon (Defeat 3 Megas to get Ravemon)
- Biyomon (Defeat 5 Megas to get Phoenixmon) 

If you count all the bosses fights in the storyline before area 11 
(Dark Area) that involve Megas, this will give you a total of 7 
Megas (Belphemon, Barbamon, Lilithmon, Beelzemon, Leviamon, 
Creepymon x 2). In the Dark area, you will encounter 4 Megas that 
act as the orb guardian (Ghoulmon, Moon-Milleniummon, 
Blackwargreymon, ChaosGallantmon). After you have saved at the last 
point beyond the yellow door in area 11, Dark Area, you can fight 
some of the storyline bosses again which gives you an additional 4 
Megas (Belphemon, Barbamon, Beelzemon, Leviamon). If you count the 
optional bosses, you can also have up to 12 additional Megas to 
defeat (Darkdramon, Bantyoleomon, Neptunemon, Minervamon, 
Mercurimon, MarineAngemon, Jumbogamemon x 2, Sleipmon, Omnimon, 
Chaosmon, Wargreymon X). So in total this will just give you a total 
of 27 Megas. So if you are a heavy gamer and want to have all the 
digivolution for your digimon, you can find other wild Megas at 
these places: 

- Platinumnumemon can be found at the 3rd & 4th floor in the Dark 
Area if you go through the Blue Room. 
- Metalgarurumon can be found on the 4th floor of the Dark Area if 
you go through the Red Room. It is basically the area where you have 
to fight Blackwargreymon & Chaosgallantmon to get the yellow orb.   
- MarineAngemon is available in the 2nd part of the Ice Labyrinth 
after you have defeated Lucemon for the second time. An elevator 
will appear which will lead you to a place where you can fight all 
the remaining optional bosses. 
- Blackghoulmon - I don't quite remember but he's most probably 
around at either Dark Area or 2nd part of Ice Labyrinth.       

====================================================================
6e. Fulfilling Tamer-Digimon relationship requirement (rela) 
------------------------------------------------------------
Can be quite annoying depending on the command that you select 
during the fights. In order to maintain good relationship with your 
digimon, you have to select the command that the digimon wants to 
use the most, which is equivalent to how many times those command 
appear on your screen. And to fulfil the bad relationship 
requirement, just keep on selecting the command that is least appear 
on the screen. In my opinion, just make sure that your digimon 
digivolve to other digimon that require good friendship first, and 
only then abuse the relationship because it is much easier to build 
bad relationship then a good one. That is why it is important to 
learn how to switch command and make it appear more on the screen 
first before selecting the command that you want to use. 
 
====================================================================
6f. Fulfilling opening chests requirement (ches)
------------------------------------------------
Chests are scattered throughout the whole area as you progress more 
into the game. However if you want to fulfill your digimon 
digivolution requirement of opening a certain amount of chests much 
earlier, you can go back to the place where you fought the bosses 
previously. Normally there will be at least 2 chests at those places 
at a time. Of if you want to wait later, you can go back and open 
the chests after defeating the bosses for the second time (after 
saving at the last save point beyond the yellow door in Area 11, 
Dark area)

====================================================================
7. About storyline Bosses (sbos)
--------------------------------
All of the storyline bosses are NSo,which means that their weakness 
is VB (except for 1st boss in Walter Island, Tyromon who is a DS). 
All of them are also Mega, except for Lucemon (Ultimate). This will 
also give you an idea of how to plan your digivolution since some 
digimon required a minimal requirement of defeating megas in order 
to digivolve to Mega rank, for example Gaomon to Miragegaogamon 
(defeat 5 Megas) and Falcomon to Ravemon (defeat 5 Megas). So let 
the digimon you want to digivolve to deliver the finishing blow if 
you want to have a few Mega digimon at an early stage in the game.     

====================================================================
8. Optional bosses/fights (Credits to Vangui) (obos)
----------------------------------------------------
With an exception to Kamemon quest (since I wrote a separate write 
up on this), these are the optional bosses that you can find in the 
game:

- Darkdramon - Area 5, Livilus Island - You can fight him after 
clearing area 5, Livilus Island. Come back to the island after 
defeating Lilithmon, input this colour at the box puzzle: Red, 
Yellow, Green. A teleporter will appear to the south. Be careful 
because he can be quite tough in the earlier part of the game, 
especially if you are at low level. I died the first time I fought 
him at level 18+ with 3 ultimates just because I want to see how 
strong he is. His weakness is JT.

- Bantyoleomon - Area 8, Doomsday Forest - After finishing area 8, 
Doomsday Forest, come back here and go the place where you fought 
Creepymon earlier and you can find Bantyoleomon. Besides being 
strong, somebody also wrote on the Board that he can remove 
opponents from the battle stage, although it didn't happen to me, so 
just be careful. His weakness is DR.        

- Omnimon - 4th Floor, area 11, Dark Area - This should be done 
after you have unlock the door (on the left) which was locked 
earlier on the 3rd floor of Blue Room. You can unlock the door by 
coming through it from the door on the 3rd floor of the Red Room. 
(You'll do this step in order to get the yellow jewel. So you can 
also do it after getting your yellow jewel). After the door is 
unlocked, place the Blue Jewel on the pedestal, take the Red Jewel 
along with you, go through the Blue Door (2nd floor) and take the 
portal to the 3rd Floor (Blue Room). Walk through the unlocked door 
that lead to the 3rd floor of the Red Room, take the elevator and go 
up to 4th floor (Red Room). Place the Red Jewel on the pedestal and 
you can fight Omnimon. His weakness is NSo. Just remember to take 
back the Red Jewel before heading back to the 1st Floor or before 
using the Return Key.  

- Wargreymon X - 1st Floor, Dark Area - After getting the Rainbow 
Jewel in a chest beyond the Yellow Door, go through the White Door 
on the 1st floor to the place where you fought Ghoulmon earlier (and 
receive your blue jewel). Put the rainbow jewel on the pedestal, go 
through the door and you'll fight him. His weakness is NSp.

- Chaosmon - 2nd Floor, Dark Area - Place the jewel on the pedestal 
in this order from left to right, red, blue, yellow. A teleporter 
will appear and you can then fight him. His weakness is NSo. 

- Mercurimon, Minervamon, Neptunemon, Jumbogamemon, Sleipmon - 2nd 
area (5th Floor), Ice Labyrinth - Mercurimon, Minervamon, 
Neptunemon, Jumbogamemon, Sleipmon - You can fight these megas and 
fulfil your digivolution requirement after you have save at the last 
save point beyond the Yellow Door at area 11, Dark Area. After you 
have defeated Lucemon for the second time, a teleporter will appear 
that lead to another area of Ice Labyrinth (5th Floor) and you can 
find all these bosses in that area. The bosses will be in their 
respective room except for Sleipmon and Jumbogamemon where you have 
to speak to Commander Sampson and Yushima's first to challenge them. 
But beforehand, I think you must defeat Yushima's Jumbogamemon first 
at area 11, Dark Area as a prt of Kamemon's quest. These bosses are 
quite strong, especially Mercurimon. So pick your level properly 
before fighting them. Weakness: Mercurimon (DR & NSo), Neptunemon 
(WG), Minervamon (VB), Jumbogamemon (WG), Sleipmon (NSo).     

- Belphemon, Barbamon, Beelzemon, Leviamon, Lucemon - You can also 
fight these bosses for the second time to receive their power after 
saving at the last save point beyond the Yellow Door at area 11, 
Dark Area. Go back to the respective area where you fought them the 
first time and you can fight them again. This is also a part of the 
requirement in order for you to meet Creepymon and receive his power 
in Area 1, Walter Island. But beforehand, you must also talk to 
Lilithmon in area 5, Livilus Island before meeting Creepymon.  

- Black and White Pawnchessmon - 2nd Floor, Mirage Museum - Go back 
to area 4, Mirage Museum, take the north elevator and  enter the 1st 
room, next to the room with the green switch. They are just rookies 
and weak to JT. I'm not sure when is the earliest you can fight them 
though.   

====================================================================
9. Kamemon quests (Credits to Vangui) (kame)
--------------------------------------------
You can do the Kamemon quest in order to fulfil Boyomon's 
digivolution requirement for Jumbogamemon or just for leveling up. 
The key is to talk to Yushima in every stage. This is my way of 
initiating the fight, in following order:

1) Area 2, Sneyato Forest: Talk to him. He is next to the barrier. 
No fight.

2) Area 3, Rage Cavern: Talk to him and this will be your first 
fight for the Kamemon quest. He's standing next to the road outside 
the cave which is not far from your boss fight. But beforehand, let 
me remind you that Yushima's digimon can be quite strong depending 
on your level. So pick your level and manage your strategy properly 
whenever you want to fight him. Come back later if you think that 
you're not strong enough. Or if you want a challenge, try fighting 
him at whatever level you have. Kamemon is a rookie and his weakness 
is WG. If you cannot find him when the 1st time you come here, come 
back later after finishing area 4 (Mirage Museum) or 5 (Livilus 
Island). 

3) Area 4, Mirage Museum: Talk to him. He is next to the save point. 
No fight.

4) Area 5, Livilus Island: Make sure you find him here. This is the 
stage where people always miss him. He is hidden behind the white 
pillars opposite the save point, which is not really visible at a 
glance. If you move your character towards the pillar than you can 
see his back. If you cannot find him now, come back later.

5) Area 6, Digital dungeon: Talk to him. He is in a room next to the 
room with the second Blue Switch. No fight.

6) Area 7, Sea Precipice Jerapilus: Talk to him and this will be 
your second fight against him, if you think you can beat him at your 
current level. He's on the 2nd floor, next to the Blue activation 
floor. This time you'll fight against Gawappamon, who also has a WG 
weakness.

7) Area 8, Doomsday forest ruin: Talk to him. He is next to the 
switch that can change the way the water flow (upward or downward). 
No fight.

8) Area 9, DATS Headquarters Entrance: Talk to him. He is somewhere 
around the cross junction leading to the boss place so you will not 
miss him. No fight. But go back to area 8, Doomsday forest ruin 
after clearing this stage. 

9) Area 8, Doomsday forest ruin: Talk to him. He will ask for a 
fishing string. Go back to headquarter, talk to Samson and he'll 
give you a fishing string. Go back and talk to Yushima and this will 
be your third fight, if you think you can beat him at your current 
level. You'll fight against Marineangemon, a Mega and her weakness 
is WG.  

10) Area 1, Walter Island: After beating Marineangemon, go to this 
island and fight him there. He'll be standing next to the save 
point. You'll fight against Shaujinmon with a WG weakness. 

11) Area 10, Ice labyrinth: Talk to him. He is to the left from the 
T-junction that leads to the boss place. No fight.

12) Area 11, Dark Area: You'll find him on the 4th floor in the room 
with 3 red switches on the far left of the area. This is the place 
where you'll get your yellow orb which looks like a garden and you 
can find metalgarurumon scattered around here. You'll fight 
Jumbogamemon and have fulfil the requirement to digivolve to 
Jumbogamemon. His weakness is still WG.  

13) Area 10, Ice labyrinth: You can fight Jumbogamemon for the 
second time but this time he'll be paired with Sleipmon. You can 
find him and Commander Sampson in a room on the second part of Ice 
Labyrinth where all the remaining optional bosses are, after 
defeating Lucemon for the second time.  

====================================================================
10. Digimon weakness/opposing type (weak)
----------------------------------------- 
Digimon weakness is based on the attack delivered by opposing 
field/race/type of digimon and the effect is reversible between the 
opposing type of digimon. For example, VB digimon is weak to NSo 
attack/enchant, and vice versa. This is useful especially against 
bosses in delivering more damage. List of opposing type: 
    NSo - VB
    DR - NSp
    ME - JT
    WG - DS

====================================================================
11. Areas name (area)

For those who played the Japanese version, this is the name of the 
area:

1.  Walter Island
2.  Sneyato Forest
3.  Rage Carvern
4.  Mirage Museum
5.  Livilus Island
6.  Digital Dungeon
7.  Sea Precipice Jerapilus

12. Pandamon's questions (pand)
------------------------
Firstly I want to apologise because this section is incomplete. 
Since I wrote this faq when I am already very far in the game,I 
cannot fully remember the old questions that was asked and the order 
it was asked. So if you guys can help, just e-mail me on the 
questions, the order it was asked & the answers.

1) First time:
(I don't quite remember what was the question, but I think it's the 
color of Gaomon's glove. So the answer is red)

2) Second time (After renamon in your party, I think. I think this 
is the question where you can receive the Knowledge digiegg). 
Answer: 10 minutes (Math questions)

3) Third time (I think after meeting Chuumon and he request for the 
cheese from Pandamon):
Answer: Yushino (She's the oldest) 

4) Fourth time (To upgrade his healing items):

Qn no:         Answer:            Option no:
------         -------            ----------  
  1.           Pumpmon                 1
  2.           Whamon                  2
  3.           NSp                     2
  4.           Red                     3  
  5.           Green                   1
  6.           Kudamon                 3
  7.           DM of light             1
  8.           Otamamon                1
  9.           Pandamon                1
  10.          Mercurimon              3

====================================================================
13. Digimental egg (DE) (degg)
-----------------------
You'll need the digimental egg for some digivolution. This section 
is also incomplete. So hope others can help and confirm me on the 
information
1. Light - Salamon's digiegg quest. (I don't remember how many 
digieggs to trade for this item)
2. Hope - Could be in Mirage Museum, in a chest, forgot
3. Friendship - In a chest at area 7, Sea Precipice Jerapilus
4. Knowledge - Go and see Pandamon after you have Renamon in your 
team. I think you have to answer a math question and the answer is 
10 minutes. He'll give it to you afterwards.
5. Honesty - After you have met Chuumon, buy some stuff from him. 
Stop buying, talk to him until you have his request for cheese from 
Pandamon. If not, just buy some stuff again, stop buying & talk to 
him again until he told you of his request. Then go back to 
Pandamon, answer a question (I think the answer is Yoshino) and 
he'll give you the cheese. Bring the cheese back to Chuumon.  


====================================================================
14. Personal opinion on which Digimon to use in battle/level up  
   (opin)
---------------------------------------------------------------

My team normally comprised of an attacker, a supporter and a healer. 
So my preference would be the original first 3 digimon that you 
receive in the storyline, which are Agumon, Gaomon and Lalamon. 
Besides having a lot of mega form digivolution, Agumon is a strong 
character and that is why I'm not surprise if he is also everyone's 
main attacker. You cannot remove him anyway so just stick with it. 
However in battle, Agumon's turn of action can be quite slow due to 
its low agility and that is why one of my supporting characters is 
Gaomon who's got really useful command like a G Agility Up to boost 
his turn (Gaogamon & Miragegaogamon form). You can switch Gaomon 
with Falcomon or Biyomon since those two are also quicker than 
Agumon, but Biyomon joins your team a bit later in the game, so he 
could fall behind in terms of level compared to the others. However 
besides being fast and have the ability to make Agumon's turn of 
action comes quicker, compared to the other 2 substitutes, Gaomon 
also have useful command like Search Weakness and Attack Weakness 
that can amplify damage, which I normally use a lot. 

As for healer, normally I use Lalamon's Rosemon digivolution form. 
Besides having higher agility than Agumon, she also has good healing 
spell such as G Healing. But the con is that she can be quite weak 
compared to Agumon and Gaomon sometimes due to lower stats. That's 
why I substituted her with Renamon (Sakuyamon's form) sometimes 
since Sakuyamon also have the same healing spell, but with higher 
defense than Rosemon. However, same problem with Biyomon, Renamon 
joins the team a bit late in the game which makes her fall behind in 
terms of level. Another thing that makes Lalamon my better choice is 
that she has the Resist Mega command which is quite useful in 
reducing damage from bosses.  

In terms of which Mega form to use, normally I just stick with the 
one on the far right of each Digimon's evolution map (Agumon -
Shinegreymon, Lalamon - Rosemon/Minervamon, Gaomon - Miragegaogamon, 
Falcomon - Ravemon, Biyomon - Phoenixmon, Renamon - Sakuyamon). The 
reason being is that you can get these forms very early in the game 
and most of their commands are very useful throughout the whole 
game. Another reason is that the digivolution requirement of 
defeating Megas & receiving 50,000-100,000 damage is normally much 
harder to fulfill except for those who are patients and love 
leveling up. That's why I have not received all of my digimon's Mega 
form since im having problems fulfilling those requirements because 
I'm quite lazy in leveling up. However comparing Agumon with the 
other forms that I got such as Darkdramon, Ghoulmon, Gallantmon, 
Wargreymon & Wargreymon X, Shinegreymon has the highest stats. So if 
you're a lazy type and just want to finish the game, you can still 
stick with your Shinegreymon form and I'm sure you'll do just fine. 
For Gaomon, I used Miragegaogamon form mainly due to the agility and 
the G Agility Up command. As for Lalamon, Rosemon is my better 
choice compared to Renamon's Sakuyamon due to the higher level, 
Resist Mega command and also Forbidden Temptation command that can 
attack multiple enemies. However when Lalamon can digivolve to 
Minervamon, I just use that form due to higher stats and late in the 
game you should be rich enough to just buy all the high level 
healing items, especially from Pandamon.   

I beat all the bosses including the optional one with the level of 
just below 50 and I do most of the leveling up just by beating all 
the optional bosses. I'm sure there are a lot of people out there 
who is better than me but what I'm trying to say is that you don't 
need to be at high level to win the game, just the right strategy 
would be sufficient. So it depends on your own choice on what 
combination of digimon that you want, depending on your own style. 
Some people like 2 attackers & 1 supporter, so just choose whatever 
suits you. The important thing is just to enjoy the game.        

====================================================================

B) Simple walkthrough

====================================================================
1. Walter Island (walt)
-----------------------

Preparation: If you have money, just buy a few healing items first. 
When you get lalamon in area 2, she probably will do most of the 
healing job with its heal command, instead of using items. So you 
can start saving money afterwards. 

Type of enemies: DS, NSO and a WG, Airdramon (a Champion) which is 
available after clearing the stage. This is good place to hunt NSo 
digimon as they appear quite often. Also good place to kill WG 
digimon as they area quite rare and Airdramon appear more frequent 
than other WG digimon in other places. So better do it quickly if 
you want to evolve to Mega earlier in the game(For Agumon, you'll 
need to kill 25 WG digimon in order to digivolve to Wargreymon & for 
Falcomon you need to kill 5 WG digimon to digivolve to Ravemon)

     |             |     |      Y - Yushima
   Start-----------------/      
       
           

Walkthrough: This stage is quite straight to the point. Just 
remember to save before facing the boss.  

Boss - 1st boss is Tyromon, a Champion. Just kick hiss ass. If you 
have done enough killing you can already have at least 1 
digivolution. 2nd boss is Creepymon. You cannot win this one as it 
is a part of the storyline. So just use any command that you want. 
If you want to receive his power as a part of Agumon's digivolution 
requirement, Creepymon will be here after you have done the 
sidequest of meeting up with the boss in Area 5, Livilus Island and 
defeating the other demon lords (main story bosses) for the second 
time (after saving at the last save point beyond yellow door at area 
11, Dark Area). There is no second demon lord fight in this place, 
so not necessarily to come back here except to fight Yushima and 
receiving Creepymon's power which will increase Agumon's stats.       

Yushima - He'll be here after you beat his MarineAngemon at (area 8) 
Doomsday Forest during the Kamemon quest, after clearing area no 9 
(DATS Headquarters Entrance). You'll fight against Shaujinmon with a 
WG weakness.

Immediate optional things that can be done after clearing this stage 
- Just progress with the storyline or come back here to fight 
Airdramon (WG) which is available after clearing the stage. A chest 
is also available near the boss area.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Sneyato Forest (sney)
------------------------

Preparation: This time you already have lalamon. So you can let her 
do the healing job and save money from buying healing items. 

Type of enemies: VB, JT and NSp. A good place to hunt for NSp 
digimon. Also not bad in terms of hunting for VB and JT digmon. If 
you want to kill a lot of VB and JT, better do it here quickly 
before clearing the stage as they appear more often compared to 
after clearing the stage. The next place you will find more VB is at 
a later stage, area 9, DATS headquarters entrance. JT digimon looks 
like flowers and trees (Palmon, Woodmon) and dragonfly (Yanmamon). 
For Nsp, they all looks like wild animal (wolf - Garurumon, lion - 
leomon) while as for VB, Patamon is the only one available now.

          |                   Globe touching order:O1,O2,O3,O1  
        Start

Salamon - From your starting point, you can talk to Salamon first on 
your right. You can check your stats with him, which is important if 
you want to keep track of your evolution map. He will also give you 
some items based on the number of digimon you have defeated. Among 
important items traded which is important for digivolution are the 
Holy Ring and the X antibody. So keep on coming back here to check 
your stats and trade for items once in a while.

Sphere puzzle - Firstly touch red sphere O1, then the red barrier to 
the south and in front of Yushima will open. Go open chest C2. Then 
talk to Yushima, then press red sphere O2 and then purple sphere O3 
(some barrier will open and close). Then go back from the back 
entrance and press red sphere O1 again. Purple Barrier in front of 
the save point will open & you can then save and fight the boss. 

Boss - Bakemon, a Champion. Just kick his ass and heal whenever 
needed. Bakemon will then digivolve to Myotismon, an Ultimate. Use 
VB enchant on your attacker and kick his ass. There is no second 
demon lord fight in this place, so it is not necessarily to come 
back here except for leveling up and fulfilling defeating certain 
type of digimon.

Immediate optional things that can be done after clearing this stage 
- Just progress with the storyline or come back here to fight Leomon 
(Champion) which is available after clearing the stage.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

3. Rage Cavern (rage)
---------------------

Preparation: By now you should have 3 digimon in your command. So I 
guess its better for you to start planning your evolution so that 
you don't have to keep on coming back to the same area to hunt for 
digimon. Buy some enchant items if you have the money. Im not sure 
when these items will be available, but stock on some Return Key, 
Low encounter and Invisible if you want to. Return key are useful if 
you're lazy to walk back to the starting point and low encounter 
makes your movement much easier. 

Type of enemies: Mostly ME and NSp. You can identify ME type if you 
are attacked by a shit-looking digimon (Numemon) or a rock digimon 
(Gotsumon).

C - Chest                        B - Boss 
Y - Yushima                      S - Save point
E1 - Transporter (Go to E2 and vice versa)

Walkthrough: This stage is quite straight to the point. Go to 
elevator E1, and you'll arrive on 2nd Floor through E2. Then you can 
collect all the loot from the chests, find Yushima (if available), 
and then just head straight to the save point and the Boss area.
       
Yushima - I cannot find him the first time I arrive here. So if you 
cannot find him now, come back here again later (after clearing area 
4 or 5, perhaps). When you accept his challenge, this will be the 
starting point of your Kamemon quest. You will need to complete the 
quest in order to fight an optional boss, Jumbogamemon (Mega 
level)in area 11, Dark Area. Defeating Jumbogamemon is also a 
requirement for your Biyomon to digivolve to Jumbogamemon. If you 
accept his challenge in this area, you'll fight his Kamemon. But 
beforehand, let me remind you that Yushima's digimon can be quite 
strong depending on your level. So pick your level and manage your 
strategy properly whenever you want to fight him. Come back later if 
you think that you're not strong enough. Or if you want a challenge, 
try fighting him at whatever level you have. Use the same search 
weakness, field enchant, attack weakness enchant, upgrade attack, 
uograde defense strategy and you can win in a couple of round (or 
probably kill him in a single attack if you have a strong digimon). 
Kamemon is a rookie with a WG weakness.    

Boss - Belphemon, a Mega. His weakness is VB. So use VB enchant if 
you want to. It is also recommended for Gaomon to do the finishing 
blow if you want him digivolve to Miragegaogamon very early in the 
game, unless if you want to fulfil the defeating 20 megas 
requirement for Agumon and Lalamon, which require a much longer time 
to do. You can also fight him again for the second time after saving 
at the last save point beyond yellow door at area 11, Dark Area. 
Defeating him for the second time will increase Agumon's stats, 
fulfil Agumon's requirement to digivolve to Belphemon and letting 
you to meet up with Creepymon in area 1, Walter Island after beating 
up the other Demon Lords as well.  

Immediate optional things that can be done after clearing this stage 
- Try coming back here if you want to find Yushima and didn't find 
him earlier. If you still cannot find him, then just come back 
later. 2 chests are also available around the boss area.  

--------------------------------------------------------------------

4. Mirage museum (mira)
-----------------------

Preparation: By now you should have 4 digimons in your command. 
Since the boss is a Mega, I guess it's better for you to start 
planning your evolution on which Mega that you want first and which 
digimon that you want to use for the rest of the game. These are the 
minimum requirement if you want a Mega at an early stage in the 
game:
- Gaomon (Defeat 5 Megas to get Miragegaogamon)
- Falcomon (Defeat 3 Megas to get Ravemon) 
So just make sure either one of these two deliver the finishing 
blow, unless if you are going for the defeating 20 Mega requirement 
for any of the digimon of your choice. Also stock on the normal 
stuff, Healing items, Find Weakness, Attack Weakness, Return Key, 
Field Enchant and Low encounter if you want to. 


Type of enemies: ME and NSo. You can identify ME type if you are 
attacked by a rock (Gotsumon), a gear (Solarmon), a block agumon 
(Toyagumon) and a yellow bear (Monzaemon). As for, NSo, it's a 
candle (Candlemon) and a pumpkin (Pumpmon). You should also take 
notice that Monzaemon and Pumpmon are Ultimate digimon. So you can 
start fulfilling the defeating Ultimate requirement quite early in 
the game if you want to since these 2 digimon appear quite often.

E1 - Transporter (Go to E2 and vice versa)
E3 - Transporter (Go to E4 and vice versa)

Walkthrough: Firstly, go to the north transporter, E1, and you'll 
arrive on the second floor through E2. Then go to the room far on 
the right to get a chest. After that go to the middle/second room, 
and press the green switch G1, this will turn off Green Barrier WG. 
Then go back to 1st floor through E2, go through the turn off 
barrier WG and step on the transporter E3. You'll arrive on the 
second floor through E4. Walk south and then east, go to the room on 
the far left and turn on the Blue Switch GB, which will turn off 
Blue Barrier WB. Then go have a chat with Yushima, save and face the 
boss.     

Miki & Megumi - They'll not be here the 1st time you explore the 
area. I'm not entirely sure when they'll be here, but after you 
reach area 11, dark Area, both of them should already be available 
here.   If you talk to both of them, you can fight 2 optional 
bosses, Black and White Pawnchessmon. They are just rookies and weak 
to JT, so I'm guessing you can encounter them quite early in the 
game.      

Boss - Barbamon, a Mega. His weakness is VB. Be careful though since 
he can remove your party member from the battle field. You can also 
fight him again for the second time after saving at the last save 
point beyond yellow door at area 11, Dark Area. Defeating him for 
the second time will increase Gaomon's stats, fulfil Gaomon's 
requirement to digivolve to Barbamon and letting you to meet up with 
Creepymon in area 1, Walter Island after beating up the other Demon 
Lords as well.  

Immediate optional things that can be done after clearing this stage 
- You can go back to area 3, Rage Cavern to find Yushima, if you 
cannot find him the first time. If you still cannot find him, then 
try again after clearing area 5, Livilus Island. 2 chests are also 
available around the boss area. Also don't forget to go and see 
Salamon to trade for items.   

--------------------------------------------------------------------

5. Livilus Island (livi)
------------------------

Preparation: Small map. There's also a lot of DR digimon here, so 
you can also stock on more NSp enchant if you want to. As usual, 
also stock on the normal item, if you want to.

Type of enemies: DR, ME, NSo, WG, VB and NSp. A good place to hunt 
DR digimon (looks like dinosaur) as they appear more often. There is 
also WG digimon (looks like bird) such as Toucamon or Birdramon here 
but they appear less often.

*Transporter to Darkdramon's place will only appear after you have 
solved the box puzzle - Red, Yellow, Green

Box puzzle solution: Blue, Red, Green

Walkthrough: You can go see Pandamon's first for clues to the Box 
Puzzle. He'll ask a question, which I don't quite remember. I think 
it was the color of Gaomon's glove. So the answer is red. Then go to 
the box puzzle, switch each boxes until you get a Blue, Red and 
Green boxes in a row. The barrier will be turn off and you can move 
to the left, open a chest and walk up the vine on the wall to 2nd 
floor. Try to find Yushima. If he is not available, then come back 
later.    

Boss - Lilithmon, a Mega. Her weakness is VB. You can come back here 
after saving at the last save point beyond yellow door at area 11, 
Dark Area, but she will not fight you. Meeting her for the second 
time will increase Renamon's stats, fulfil Renamon's requirement to 
digivolve to Lilithmon and letting you to meet up with Creepymon in 
area 1, Walter Island after beating up the other Demon Lords as 
well.  

Yushima - He is hidden behind the white pillars, which is not really 
visible at a glance. If you move your character towards the pillar 
than you can see his back. If you cannot find him now, come back 
later. You'll need to talk to this guy to complete the Kamemon quest 
and enable you to fight his Gwappamon in area 7, Sea Precipice 
Jerapilus. Make sure that you have also fought his Kamemon 
beforehand in area 3, Rage Cavern.  

Pandamon - Besides giving you tips on how to solve the box puzzle, 
Pandamon also sold various stuffs which is not available at the 
headquarters. I think Low Encounter and Return Key should be 
available by now. You can come back here after you got Renamon in 
your party. I think he'll ask a math question with the answer 10 
minutes and then you'll receive the Knowledge digiegg. Also come 
back here after meeting up with Chuumon in area 10, Ice Labyrinth. 
He'll ask a question with the answer Yushino and he'll give you the 
cheese that was asked by Chuumon. You'll need the cheese to get the 
Honesty digiegg from Chuumon. And come back here for the last time 
afterward and he'll give you a 10-questions quiz which will upgrade 
his healing items. 

  Qn no:         Answer:            Option no:

    10.          Mercurimon              3

Optional Boss - Darkdramon, a mega. His weakness is JT. Come back to 
the island after defeating Lilithmon and input this colour at the 
box puzzle: Red, Yellow, Green. A teleporter will appear to the 
south of the box puzzle. Be careful because he can be quite tough in 
the earlier part of the game, especially if you are at low level. I 
died the first time I fought him at level 18+ with 3 ultimates 
without using the item Invisible just because I want to see how 
strong he is. So I recommend you to have at least 1 Mega if you want 
to fight him and use a good strategy. U can also use the item 
Invisible if he is too strong for you. You can also find 2 chests 
here. 

Immediate optional things that can be done after clearing this 
stage:
1. Find Yushima in area 3, Rage Cavern if you haven't found him
2. Come back here to this area if you cannot find him the 1st time
3. Fight Darkdramon here or just walk pass him and open 2 chests
4. Trade item with Salamon
5. Open a chest that will appear around the boss area 

--------------------------------------------------------------------

6. Digital Dungeon (digi)
-------------------------

Preparation: Can be quite a large place for some players, so 
remember to stock on the normal items and Low Encounter. 

Type of enemies: Same as Mirage Museum, mostly ME and some NSo. For 
ME you can still find the common gear look-alike digimon (Solarmon 
and Hagurumon) and shit digimon (Numemon and Goldnumemon). So this 
place can also be a good stage for hunting ME digimon.

Walkthrough: Go to 3rd floor through transporter E1 and E3. In the 
1st room on 3rd floor, turn on the Green Switch, G1. This will turn 
off the Green Barrier WG. If you walk past the turn off Green 
Barrier WG, you'll find that you are at a cross junction with 2 Blue 
Barrier, WB which is still activated. Then go east and north, and 
enter the 1st room to talk to Yushima and open 2 chests. No fight 
with yushima this time. Then go to the room on far left and turn on 
Blue Switch, B2. Then head back further south to the end and then to 
the east. You'll find a room with Green switch, G2 and a chest. Just 
open the chest, then move further to the east and then north. Grab a 
chest, move north and you'll end up at the place with the save point 
and 4 barriers earlier. Save, head north and you'll fight the boss.    

Boss - Beelzemon, a Mega. His weakness is VB. You can also fight him 
again for the second time after saving at the last save point beyond 
yellow door at area 11, Dark Area. Defeating him for the second time 
will increase Biyomon's stats, fulfil Biyomon's requirement to 
digivolve to Beelzemon and letting you to meet up with Creepymon in 
area 1, Walter Island after beating up the other Demon Lords as 
well.  

Immediate optional things that can be done after clearing this 
stage:
1. Find Yushima in area 3, Rage Cavern if you haven't found him
2. Find Yushima in area 5, Livilus Island if you haven't found him
3. Fight Darkdramon in area 5, Livilus Island if you think you can
   beat him
4. Trade item with Salamon
5. Open 2 chests that will appear around the boss area 

--------------------------------------------------------------------

7. Sea Precipice Jerapilus (seap)
---------------------------------

Preparation: Sorry to say, this is the most annoying place for me 
due to the stair puzzle and it is quite a huge area. So better stock 
on a lot of Low Encounter and Retun Key. 

Type of enemies: You can find a lot of aquatic digimon here, which 
is DS. So this will be a good place to hunt for DS type. Among the 
DS digimon available here are Otamamon (tadpole), Whamon (whale), 
Tyromon (blue winged shark) and Megaseadramon (sea dragon). Despite 
the name, Megaseadramon is just an ultimate though. ME digimon are 
also available here. Petranamon looks like aeroplane. However do not 
mistaken Mambomon as a DS just because he looks like a flat fish. 
There's also a few NSo digimon available here that looks like orcs 
(Goburimon, Shamamon).  

Walkthrough: Firstly, when you arrive at this place, on the 1st 
floor, the stair S1 is pointing to the south. If you stand on Red 
Stage R1, stair S1 will move to the east and connect to the round 
stage on the right. So the Red Stage R1 act as a switch in 
maneuvering the direction of the moving stair S1 to the south or to 
the east. So step on Red stage R1, then walk to portal P1. You'll be 
teleported to portal P2

After stepping on red stage R2, stair S3 and S5 will move to the 
south and the stage will look like the picture below. You might also 
not realize that S1 on the 1st Floor also move to the same direction 
as S3 and S5. So basically when you step on R2, all S1, S3 and S5 
will move to the same direction.

So from R2, walk to the junction between S3 and S5, walk south and 
open Chest 1, C1. Then go up north through S3 and S5 to the Blue 
Stage, B1. You'll also notice on your way that there are 2 chests, 
C2 and C3 which cannot be reach now, but we'll come back for it 
later. When you step on B1, Stair 7, T7 will move to North East and 
the stage will now looks something like the picture below. 

Yushima - You should talk to him along your way to B1. If you have 
talk to him at all the other stages previously, and already fought 
his Kamemon in Area 3, Rage Cavern, now you can have a second fight 
with him. You'll go up against Kamemon's second form, Gawappamon, a 
champion who also has a WG weakness. Be careful though because he 
can be quite strong, depending on your level. So decide carefully 
whether you want to fight him now or come back after saving at the 
next save point.

So now go south from B1 through T7 and you'll arrive at a save point 
and then Portal P3.


3rd Floor (Initial stair location)
----------------------------------

When you arrive at 3rd Floor through portal P4, you'll notice that 
the stage look something like the picture on the left. Go to Red 
Stage R3, step on it, and stair S9 will move to northeast connecting 
directly to P5. However you will also notice that on the second 
floor, S5 and S3 will also move parallel with S9 and now the stair 
S5 is already connected to the chest C2 and C3. So if you want to 
open chest C2 and C3, go back to 2nd Floor and walk back through 
stairs T7 and S5. After opening chest, come back to the 3rd Floor. 
Chest C3 contain the Friendship DE which is required for Falcomon to 
digivolve to Petranamon (I think, don't quite remember). For those 
who just want to continue the game without bothering to go back for 
the chests on 2nd Floor, just move to the East on 3rd Floor through 
S9, take portal P5 to P6, open 2 chests on 4th Floor and go back to 
3rd Floor. Head back to portal P4, but this time go through the Blue 
Stage first on the south.

Step on the switch on the Blue Stage B2 and the stair T11 will move

floor has also move back to the west. Then go back to the 2nd Floor 
through P4 (open a chest first along the way), then walk up north to 
portal P7 to go to the second area on the 4th Floor. Also save along 
the way at the save point if you want.

Go to portal P10 and the 4th Floor to open 2 chests and then come 
back to the 4th Floor. Then go to the east to portal P8 and you'll 
arrive at the boss area on the 5th Floor.
 
Boss - Leviamon, a Mega. Basically a huge crocodile. His weakness is 
VB. You can also fight him again for the second time after saving at 
the last save point beyond yellow door at area 11, Dark Area. 
Defeating him for the second time will increase Falcomon's stats, 
fulfil Falcomon's requirement to digivolve to Leviamon and letting 
you to meet up with Creepymon in area 1, Walter Island after beating 
up the other Demon Lords as well.  

Immediate optional things that can be done after clearing this 
stage:
1. Fight Yushima in area 3, Rage Cavern 
2. Find Yushima in area 5, Livilus Island if you haven't found him
3. Come back here to fight Yushima's Gawappamon if you haven't 
4. Fight Darkdramon in area 5, Livilus Island if you think you can
   beat him
5. Trade item with Salamon
6. Open 2 chests that will appear around the boss area 

--------------------------------------------------------------------

8. Doomsday Forest (doom)
-------------------------

Preparation: Small area. I don't think you'll even need Low 
Encounter for this place. So you can just do a little bit of 
fighting while walking around. Just stock up on the normal items. 

Type of enemies: I think this is one of the good place to hunt for 
JT digimon. Although they appear less often but at least you can 
find them here besides Sneyato Forest. Easy to identify as they 
looks like insect (Butterflymon, Stingmon). ME digimon such as 
Etemon (yellow monkey) and Kokuwamon (beetle robot) are also 
available here. There's also a few WG and NSp digimon here. However 
do not get confuse between Pegasmon (WG) and Shimaunimon (NSp) 
though although both of them come from the same family.

Walkthrough: Go to the east and open a chest. Then head back to the 
T-junction and head straight north for another chest in a cave. Then 
go back to the cross junction, head east and north for another 
chest. Afterward just follow the route to the east until you reach a 
save point, a portal P1. Step on P1 to activate it and you'll be 
transported to P2. Open a chest on the east and go back to P1 again 
through P2. Stand near the river edge and there'll be options 
whether you want to ride the log or not. Select to ride the log. 
Firstly the water will flow downward. First stop is near Yushima and 
switch control. Talk to him or just ride on the log again to go to 
the second stoop point and open 2 chests. Then head to the 3rd stop 
point and teleport back to P1 through P2. Do the same step again but 
this time just stop at the 1st stop point near Yushima. Talk to him 
if you haven't done it. Then go to the switch control and switch the 
water flow so that it'll go upward. Ride on the log again, but this 
time you'll move upward. At the next stop point you can open a chest 
with a Discount Card. At the last stop point you can then open 
chests, save and head on to the boss area.          

Yushima - The first time you talk to him, it'll be just a normal 
chat. However come back here after you have clear the next stage, 
area 9, DATS Headquarters Entrance. Talk to him and he will ask for 
a fishing string. Go back to headquarter, talk to Samson and he'll 
give you a fishing string. Go back and talk to Yushima and this will 
be your third fight. You'll fight against Marineangemon, a Mega and 
her weakness is WG. I still think you need to do this optional 
battle before fighting Kamemon's third form later in area 1, Walter 
Island.  

Boss - Creepymon, a Mega. His weakness is VB. You will not fight him 
for the second time here though. However if you come back for the 
second time, his place will be taken over by Bantyoleomon. 

Optional Boss - Bantyoleomon, a Mega - After finishing this area, 
come back here and go the place where you fought Creepymon earlier 
and you can find him standing there. Besides being really strong, 
somebody also wrote on the Board that he can also remove opponents 
from the battle stage, although it didn't happen to me. So just be 
careful. His weakness is DR.        

Immediate optional things that can be done after clearing this 
stage:
1. Fight Yushima in area 3, Rage Cavern 
2. Find Yushima in area 5, Livilus Island if you haven't found him
3. Fight Yushima's Gawappamon in area 7, Sea Precipice Jerapilus 
4. Fight Darkdramon in area 5, Livilus Island. I think you should be
   able to defeat him now
5. Trade item with Salamon
6. Come back here to fight Bantyoleomon
7. Open 2 chests that will appear around the boss area 

--------------------------------------------------------------------

9. DATS Headquarters Entrance (dats)
------------------------------------

Preparation: Just stock up on the normal items. Bring along Low  
Encounter if you think the area is too big for you. There is a lot 
of walking on bridges exercise if you want to collect all the chests 
items. 

Type of enemies: There are a lot of NSo digimon here, coupled with 
DR and VB type that appear sometimes. Can be a good hunting ground 
for those 3 types of digimon. The DR digimon available here are the 
various version of Greymon and Growlmon and as for VB you'll find 
Angemon (white angel). As for Nso you can find Devimon (black 
devil), Bakemon (ghost)and human flame (Meramon & Bluemeramon).

Walkthrough: Just walk to the east, up the bridge and open all the 
chests around here. Then go north and eventually you'll end up at 
the boss are. Also don't forget to talk to Yushima along the way 
although there is no fight this time. 

Boss - Creepymon, a Mega. Yup, him again. His weakness is still VB. 
There is no second boss fight here so it is not necessarily to come 
back here except for the 2 chests at the boss area.  

Immediate optional things that can be done after clearing this 
stage:
1. You should have fought Yushima in area 3, Rage Cavern by now 
2. You should have found Yushima in area 5, Livilus Island by now
3. You should have fought Yushima's Gawappamon in area 7, Sea
   Precipice Jerapilus by now 
4. Fight Darkdramon in area 5, Livilus Island. I think you should be
   able to defeat him now
5. Go and talk to Yushima in area 8, Doomsday Forest. Fulfil his
   request and you can fight his Marineangemon
6. After beating Yushima's Marineangemon, go to area 1, Walter
   Island and fight Yushima's Shaujinmon over there. This will 
   enable you to fight Kememon's final form, Jumbogamemon in area 
   11, Dark Area.  
7. Fight Bantyoleomon in area 8, Doomsday Forest if you think you
   can beat him. 
8. Trade item with Salamon
9. Open 2 chests that will appear around the boss area 
10.Try to take a look at area 4, Mirage Museum whether Miki & Megumi
   are already available for battle now  

--------------------------------------------------------------------

10. Ice Labyrinth (icel)
------------------------

Preparation: Just stock up on the normal items. Don't forget to 
bring along Low Encounter because the area can be quite large (4 
floors) 

Type of enemies: Various mixture of enemies here ranging from NSo, 
NSp, DR, DS, VB and ME. There is also a lot of Ultimate here so it 
can be a good place for leveling up and fulfilling defeating 
Ultimate requirement. A thing to note is that aside from the 
optional bosses, you can find a Marieangemon, a Mega digimon lurking 
around in the second area (5th Floor) of Ice Labyrinth (available 
after saving at the last save point beyond the Yellow Door at area 
11, Dark Area and defeated Lucemon for the second time). I think 
BlackGhoulmon should also be here but I don't quite remember though.

Walkthrough: Firstly, I suggested that you clear the right area 
first since it's not that big and you can meet Chuumon on the 3rd 
Floor. You can buy good items from him such as No Encounter & 
Friend/Affection drink, and do a small quest to get the Honesty DE. 
The more items you buy from him, better items will be additionally 
sold at his store. After clearing the right stage area, go on and 
clear the left area. You will eventually end up at the boss area on 
the 4th Floor. However don't forget to speak to Yushima on the same 
floor along your way as part of Kamemon's quest.        

Honesty DE quest - After you have met Chuumon, buy some stuff from 
him. Stop buying, talk to him until you have his request for cheese 
from Pandamon. If not, just buy some stuff again, stop buying & talk 
to him again until he told you of his request. Then go back to 
Pandamon on area 5, Livilus Island, answer a question (I think the 
answer is Yoshino) and he'll give you the cheese. Bring the cheese 
back to Chuumon and he'll give you the Honesty DE. You'll need this 
digiegg for one of the digivolution. I don't remember for which 
evolution it was for though.   

Boss - Lucemon, an Ultimate. His weakness is VB. You can also fight 
him again for the second time after saving at the last save point 
beyond yellow door at area 11, Dark Area. Defeating him for the 
second time will increase Lalamon's stats, fulfil Lalamon's 
requirement to digivolve to Lucemon, open up area on 5th Floor for 
other optional bosses; and letting you to meet up with Creepymon in 
area 1, Walter Island after beating up the other Demon Lords as 
well.  

Optional bosses - Mercurimon, Minervamon, Neptunemon, Jumbogamemon, 
Sleipmon - You can fight these megas and fulfil your digivolution 
reuqirement after you have save at the last save point beyond the 
Yellow Door at area 11, Dark Area. After you have defeated Lucemon 
for the second time, a teleporter will appear that lead to another 
area of Ice Labyrinth (5th Floor)and you can find all these bosses 
in that area. The bosses will be in their respective room except for 
Sleipmon and Jumbogamemon where you have to speak to Commander 
Sampson and Yushima's first to challenge them. But beforehand, I 
think you must defeat Yushima's Jumbogamemon first at area 11, Dark 
Area as a prt of Kamemon's quest. These bosses are quite strong, 
especially Mercurimon. So pick your level properly before fighting 
them. Weakness: Mercurimon (DR & NSo), Neptunemon (WG), Minervamon 
(VB), Jumbogamemon (WG), Sleipmon (NSo).     

Immediate optional things that can be done after clearing this 
stage:
1. You should have fought Yushima in area 3, Rage Cavern by now 
2. You should have found Yushima in area 5, Livilus Island by now
3. You should have fought Yushima's Gawappamon in area 7, Sea
   Precipice Jerapilus by now 
4. You should have fought Yushima's Marineangemon in area 8,
   Doomsday Forest by now. 
5. After beating Yushima's Marineangemon, you should have fought
   Yushima's Shaujinmon in area 1, Walter Island by now. This will 
   enable you to fight Kememon's final form, Jumbogamemon in area 
   11, Dark Area 
6. You should have fought Darkdramon in area 5, Livilus Island by
   now
7. Fight Bantyoleomon in area 8, Doomsday Forest if you think you
   can beat him. 
8. Trade item with Salamon
9. Open 3 chests that will appear around the boss area
10.Try to take a look at area 4, Mirage Museum whether Miki & Megumi
   are already available for battle now  

--------------------------------------------------------------------

11. Dark Area (dark)
--------------------

Preparation: Just stock up on the normal power up and high healing 
items. There's a lot of optional bosses here and the Megas guarding 
the jewel can be quite strong depending on your level.

Type of enemies: Same as area 10, ice labyrinth, various mixture of 
enemies here. Most of them are ultimate and there are a few Megas 
lurking around. So it is also a good place for leveling up and 
fulfilling defeating Ultimate/Mega requirement. A few Megas 
available here are:
- Platinumnumemon - 3rd & 4th floor in the Dark Area if you go 
through the Blue Room. 
- Metalgarurumon - 4th floor (Blue Room) of the Dark Area if you go 
through the Red Room. It is basically the area where you have to 
fight Blackwargreymon & Chaosgallantmon to get the yellow orb.   
- Blackghoulmon - He could be here though, I don't quite remember

Walkthrough:

When you enter the castle, you'll see a save point and a White Door. 
Go through the door and you'll eventually end up in a puzzle area. 
The solution is to step on the triangle in the following sequence: 
Left, Right, Middle. A door will be open and you'll fight Ghoulmon, 
a Mega with a VB weakness. After defeating him you'll receive the 
Blue Jewel.

       through the 3rd Floor of the Red Room (with the Red Jewel on 
       the pedestal in front of Red Door).  
D    - Normal door
O    - Pedestal
P1   - Elevator go to P2 
P2   - Elevator go to P1 if you come here from the Blue Door. But it 
       will go to P3 if you come here through the Red Door (get 
       Yellow Jewel)
P3   - Elevator go to P2 when you come here through the Red Door 
P4   - Elevator go to P5 
P5   - Elevator go to P4 if you come here from the Red Door. But it 
       will go to P6 if you come here through the Blue Door (to 
       Omnimon) 
P6   - Elevator go to P5 when you come here through the Blue Door 
Y    - Yushima  
C    - Chest

After receiving the Blue Jewel, go to the 2nd Floor, place the Blue 
Jewel on the pedestal in front of the Blue Door, and go through it. 
Take the elevator P1 and go to the 3rd floor (Blue Room). You'll 
notice that there is a door to your far left, D2, but it cannot be 
opened yet. Ignore the door first, and just go to the north until 
you reach a triangular puzzle (Puzzle 1). I think the solution to 
the puzzle is Right-Left-Right (or Left-Right-Left, don't quite 
remember). Afterward a door will be open and you'll fight 
MoonMilleniumon, a Mega with a VB weakness. After defeating him 
you'll receive the Red Jewel. 
 
After receiving the Red Jewel, place the Red Jewel on the pedestal 
in front of the Red Door, and go through it. Take the elevator P3 
and go to the 3rd floor (Red Room). Go through the door D2 and 
you'll end up in the Blue Room (3rd Floor) through D1 which cannot 
be opened earlier. Go to elevator P2, but this time there is only an 
option of going up. Take it and you'll end up on the 4th Floor (Blue 
Room). There are triangular puzzles on the 1st two rooms from the 
left. The solution is:
1) Go to Middle Room, step on Middle-Left-Right
2) Go to Left Room, step on Middle-Left-Right
3) Go back to Middle Room again, but this time just step on Right
Door on the right will open and you'll fight a pair of Megas, 
Blackwargreymon (weakness NSp) and Chaosgallantmon (weakness VB).
After defeating them you'll receive the Yellow Jewel. 

After receiving the Yellow Jewel, place the Yellow Jewel on the 
pedestal in front of the Yellow Door, and go through it. You'll find 
the Rainbow Jewel in a chest and a save point. Save at the last save 
point and you have 2 options. The first one is to just continue up 
and fight the final boss, Dark Lord or do all the other optional 
things and quests; like fighting optional bosses and receive the 
power of the storyline bosses.  

Yushima - You'll find him on the 4th Floor (Blue Room). If you have 
done all the Kamemon's quest previously, this will will be your last 
fight for the quest. You'll fight his Jumbogamemon and fulfil the 
requirement to digivolve to Jumbogamemon. His weakness is still WG. 
However you can still fight him for the second time at the new area 
(5th Floor) of Ice Labyrinth after defeating lucemon for the second 
time. But this time he'll be paired with Sleipmon.

Final Boss - Dark Lord, a Mega. His weakness is VB. Use the normal 
strategy. Eventually you will finish the game and smile all day long 
:)
                     
Optional bosses:

1) Omnimon - 4th Floor (Red Room)- This should be done after you 
   have unlock  the door D2 which was locked earlier on the 3rd 
   floor of Blue Room. After the door is unlocked, place the Blue 
   Jewel on the  pedestal, take the Red Jewel along with you, go 
   through the Blue Door (2nd floor) and take the portal P1 to the 
   3rd Floor (Blue Room). Walk through D2 and you'll end up in the 
   Red Room (3rd Floor) through D1. Go to elevator P5, but this time 
   there is only an option of going up. Take it and you'll end up on 
   the 4th Floor(Red Room). Place the Red Jewel on the pedestal and 
   you can fight Omnimon. His weakness is NSo. Just remember to take 
   back the Red Jewel before heading back to the 1st Floor or before 
   using the Return Key.  

2) Wargreymon X - 1st Floor - After getting the Rainbow Jewel in a 
   chest beyond the Yellow Door, go through the White Door on the 
   1st floor to the place where you fought Ghoulmon earlier (and 
   receive your blue jewel). Put the rainbow jewel on the pedestal,   
   go through the door and you'll fight him. His weakness is NSp.

3) Chaosmon - 2nd Floor - Place the jewel on the pedestal in this 
   order from left to right, red, blue, yellow. A teleporter will 
   appear and you can then fight him. His weakness is NSo. 

Immediate optional things that can be done after saving at the last 
save point beyond the Yellow Door:
1. You should have fought Yushima's Gawappamon in area 7, Sea
   Precipice Jerapilus by now 
2. You should have fought Yushima's Marineangemon in area 8,
   Doomsday Forest by now. 
3. After beating Yushima's Marineangemon, you should have fought
   Yushima's Shaujinmon in area 1, Walter Island by now and beat the 
   crap out of Kamemon's final Mega form, Jumbogamemon on the 4th   
   Floor of Dark Area  
4. You should have fought Darkdramon in area 5, Livilus Island by
   now
5. You should have fought Bantyoleomon in area 8, Doomsday Forest by
   now
6. Trade item with Salamon to get X-Antibody
7. Fight Miki & Megumi's Pawnchessmon at area 4, Mirage Museum 
8. Defeat all the bosses for the second time and receive their power 
   (except for Lilithmon & Creepymon where you don't have to fight    
   them)
9. Go and see Creepymon in area 1, Walter Island to receive his 
   power
10.Defeat all the optional bosses in the Dark Area
11.Defeat all the optional bosses on the new area, on the 5th Floor 
   of Ice Labyrinth after defeating Lucemon for the second time
11.Or just forget all these optional tasks and go on fighting with 
   the final boss

====================================================================

1. Improvement wish list
------------------------
Based on this game and all the previous Digimon World series, I wish 
to suggest these improvements for the next Digimon World RPG (if 
there is any):
1. Give us a map. That would be helpful
2. Reduce the encounter rate or give the low encounter item quite 
   early in the game or more save points
3. Speed up the loading time
4. Speed up the action sequence during battle or after killing the 
   enemy. It could be quite boring sometimes to wait for the action 
   to take place
5. Throw in some cool-looking movie or FMV in the game, especially 
   fighting sequence, not only the introduction movie. Final Fantasy  
   & Shadow Hearts series have this, which is very interesting. I 
   was always astonished by the introduction movie of each Digimon 
   World series, so adding more movies will be better, I think. Also 
   enable certain button that can be pressed to skip the movies 
6. Add on combo action or special attack. For example, a special 
   gauge that will increase each time you receive damage, and when 
   it is full you can then unleash special powerful attack. 
7. Put a help section explaining the gameplay
8. Add extra mode after finishing the game. Probably extra stage or 
   extra hard bosess to fight with 

2. About me
-----------
My real name is Rizal and I live in Malaysia. I love PS2 games 
especially in the action, beat-em up and RPG genre. But I'm not a 
fan of first person shooter game though. Besides PS2 games I also 
love anime, jdrama & movies. I'm not really a game freak as I also 
have my own job, my own life and other stuffs to do. So most of the 
time I just play games during my leisure time. Initially I was 
planning to submit this faq in October, however due to work 
commitment, that is why I can only finish most of the write up 
today. Besides a couple of flaws mentioned earlier, I think Digimon 
World Data Squad is still an enjoyful game. For those who love RPG, 
check out these other great games: Final Fantasy series, Shadow 
Hearts series, Valkyrie Profile, Legend of Legaia, Dark Cloud, Jade 
Coccoon.
