Mysterious climate changes occur around the world, including a blizzard that falls overnight in July at a summer camp in Japan. Seven children at the camp—Tai, Sora, Matt, Izzy, Mimi, T.K., and Joe—are each given an item that falls from an aurora in the sky, and are all swept off by a wave. Coming to in a strange place, Tai finds himself with an equally strange creature that calls himself Koromon. In time, Tai reunites with the others as they each have a strange companion of their own: Motimon, Yokomon, Tokomon, Tsunomon, and Bukamon. After the creatures introduce themselves as Digimon and the place to be the DigiWorld, the children are reunited with Mimi as she and Tanemon are running from a Kuwagamon that attacked Tai and Izzy earlier. When the group is finally cornered on the edge of a cliff during their attempt to flee, risking their own lives to protect the children, the small Digimon transform into more combat oriented-forms to beat Kuwagamon before the large Digimon makes a last ditch attempt to take his prey down with him.
