The name "Tentomon" refers only to the Rookie form of this Digimon. Throughout the series, Tentomon gains the ability to Digivolve into a number of more powerful forms, each with a different name and special attack. However, the Rookie level is his preferred one and the one he spends most of his time in, due to the amount of energy required to stay in a higher form.
Tentomon assumes JikoChuumon as a joke form in Digimon Adventure 02: Armor Evolution to the Unknown using the Digi-Egg of Knowledge.
Pabumon's Digi-Egg was held by the Agents alongside Izzy's Digivice and Tag, the Crest of Knowledge, and the other Digi-Eggs, Digivices, Tags, and Crests, but when Piedmon attacked their base and stole the tags and crests, Gennai took the Digi-Eggs and Digivices and escaped in a Mekanorimon. He deposited the Digi-Eggs on File Island, where it eventually hatched into Pabumon.
Pabumon is Tentomon's fresh form. He is a green-colored blob who has a yellow pacifier in his mouth.
Motimon is Tentomon's In-Training form. Motimon is a cylinder-shaped pink blob with shining black eyes, a curvy, w-shaped smile, and two arms which have three developing claws on each.
Motimon found Izzy when he first came to the Digital World, and digivolves to Tentomon to fight Kuwagamon. Tentomon later degenerates to Motimon when Izzy loses his crest to Vademon, and continues to return to this form whenever he degenerates from MegaKabuterimon or HerculesKabuterimon after a battle.
Kabuterimon is Tentomon's champion form.
Kabuterimon first appeared when he freed Andromon from the power of the Black Gear. He was also involved in battles against Devimon, Etemon, Myotismon's henchman, and the Dark Masters. Kabuterimon is also seen in the movie Our War Game, when Tentomon Digivolves in order to fight Keramon.
In Digimon Adventure 02, the Digimon Emperor used the data for Kabuterimon's exoskeleton in the creation of Kimeramon. Kabuterimon make very few appearances such during the mission of locating the Digimon Emperor's base and the battle against the invading Digimon during Matt's Christmas concert.
Tentomon once again assumed his Kabuterimon form after reuniting with Izzy during the battle against one of three infected Kuwagumon. Despite some struggle, both he and Birdramon managed to defeat the Kuwagumon. He later appeared during the battle against Alphamon, but he was effortless defeated by the powerful Mega level Digimon. Kabuterimon eventually joined the battle to stop Meicrackmon who managed to infected most of the partner Digimon. He tries to help MetalGreymon by pushing the partner Digimon into the backup cube but was severely overwhelmed by their assault causing him to revert back to Tentomon. Kabuterimon briefly appears during Tentomon's digivolution to a higher level. .
MegaKabuterimon (Red) is Tentomon's Ultimate form. He debuts when Izzy and Kabuterimon faced Vademon. MegaKabuterimon was also involved in several battles against Myotismon's henchmen and later, Myotismon himself. MegaKabuterimon seems to have a large amount of power despite his level, seeing as he was able to destroy an entire planet that Vademon threw at him in their fight. This power was also shown in the fight against LadyDevimon, when her Black Wing attack failed when it hit MegaKabuterimon's shell.
Tentomon loses the ability to Digivolve into this form when Izzy releases the power of his crest to free the Digimon Sovereigns. Later, in Digimon Adventure 02, Azulongmon uses one of his DigiCores to restore Tentomon's power to Digivolve into MegaKabuterimon. MegaKabuterimon is seen again towards the end of Digimon Adventure 02 durng the World tour and Daemon Corp battles.
After giving a heartfelt farwell speech to Izzy, Tentomon digivolves to MegaKabuterimon in another attempt to stop Meicrackmon. After he managed to get a strong hold on her, Wargreymon who's infected attempts to savagely attack him prompting him to digivolve to his Mega form.MegaKabuterimon briefly appears during Tentomon's digivolution to HerculesKabuterimon. MegaKabuterimon appeared during the battle to stop Meicrackmon from rampaging in the real world, but was taken down by her increasing strength.
HerculesKabuterimon is Tentomon's Mega form.
While in Ryo Akiyama's party, Tentomon can digivolve to HerculesKabuterimon if he is at least level 31.
When the rest of his Digimon friends get infected by Meicoomon, Tentomon, showing his faith towards Izzy's sense of knowledge, digivolves to HerculesKabuterimon. As HerculesKabuterimon, he captures Meicoomon, snaps his friends from the infection and pushes everyone back into the distortion. Unfortunately, he wasn't quick enough to put himself and everyone else in the backup data before the reboot. After the reboot and during the battle against Machinedramon, Tentomon wanted to help Phoenixmon and Seraphimon. With Izzy's help, he managed to digivolve to HerculesKabuterimon and they managed in defeating Machinedramon. In an attempt to stop both Jesmon and Raguelmon, MegaKabuterimon digivolves to this form in response. During the battle which continues into the Digital World, Alphamon appeared and his attack causes him to revert back to Motimon.
