Palmon is a Vegetation Digimon whose name is derived from the palm tree (Phoenix dactylifera) and whose design is derived from the mythological Mandrake. It has a tropical flower blooming on its head. Although it digivolved like a reptile from Tanemon, it is an unusual Type which is classified as Vegetation based on its outward appearances and special qualities, similar to its rival Floramon. As a Vegetation Digimon, it gets along with FanBeemon. During the day it opens up the flower and spreads its leaf-like arms to perform photosynthesis. It usually buries its root-like feet under the ground, and although it is absorbing nutrients, it is also able to walk. As for the flower on its head, when it is joyful or happy it will waft about a sweet fragrance, but when it is angered or senses danger, it releases a foul stench that will drive off even large Digimon.

Palmon is obtainable by digivolving a Tanemon. Palmon can further digivolve to Ninjamon, Whamon, Vegiemon, or Kuwagamon. A wild Palmon is spotted in Native Forest, pretending to be a flower. Palmon eventually fights if the player starts distracting it, and joins the city once it is defeated. Palmon takes over Tanemon's meat farm and supplies Giant Meat, as well as selling them for 500 bits each. Once Vegiemon takes over the meat farm, Palmon relaxes in the soil next to Tanemon.
