Digimon Adventure 02
Digimon Adventure tri.
- Poison Ivy: Palmon's claws become long and whip like. Whilst her claws are like this she can use them to capture and attack her enemies and even swing to safety.
The name "Palmon" refers only to the Rookie form of this Digimon. Throughout the series, Palmon 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 her preferred form and the one she spends most of her time in, due to the amount of energy required to stay in a higher form.
Palmon has to disguise at one point to avoid being recognized by a Nanimon. She puts on a wig and calls herself ReggaePalmon and succeeds in fooling him. Palmon also assumes CheerGalmon as a joke form in Digimon Adventure 02: Armor Evolution to the Unknown using the Digi-Egg of Sincerity.
Yuramon's Digi-Egg was held by the Agents alongside Mimi's Digivice and Tag, the Crest of Sincerity, 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 Yuramon.
Yuramon is Palmon's Fresh form, an infant Digimon. The name "Yuramon" comes from the Japanese word "yurayura," a descriptive word meaning 'swaying' or 'shaking'.
Yuramon is a small Digimon with grayish hair covering her body, black eyes, and two antennae on the top of her head. Her mouth is covered by her hair and is not visible unless it is opened. She bears some resemblance to furry seeds.
Tanemon is Palmon's In-Training form. Tanemon is a Bulb Digimon whose name comes from "tane", the Japanese word for seed. She is a white and green, root-shaped Digimon with two leaves sprouting from her head.
Palmon was in this form when she first met her partner, Mimi Tachikawa. After her initial Digivolution to Palmon to help battle a wild Kuwagamon the Rookie level became her preferred form. From then on, Palmon temporarily reverted to Tanemon only when she ran out of energy in a higher level and could not sustain her Rookie form.
Togemon is Palmon's champion form. Togemon is fierce both in her devotion to Mimi and in her anger. This anger fuels her strength in attacks; along with her stubbornness, she is a determined Digimon who will never give up the fight. Togemon appears as a giant, Haniwa-faced cactus with a tuft of orange hair and wears a pair of boxing gloves.
Togemon first appeared to fight Monzaemon in Toy Town and drove the Black Gear out of him. She later did the same for Centarumon and helped to fight Devimon. Other battles Togemon was in include fights against minions of Etemon, Myotismon and the Dark Masters. As a running gag in the English dub, Togemon uses her attack in a form of a phrase instead of traditionally saying it. IE, "How about some Needle Spray?" "So you want some Needle Spray?", etc.
In Digimon Adventure 02 When Halsemon sent the Roachmon Brothers crashing into the Control Spire located in the Night Forest with the help of Mimi blinding them with a spotlight, the damage to the Control Spire allowed Palmon to become Togemon and fight the Roachmon before Halsemon destroyed the Control Spire. Togemon told Mimi that she would stay and protect the Night Forest. Later on, Palmon Digivolved to Togemon and broke the Dark Spiral off of Gorillamon after he was worn down by Michael's Betamon in the form of Seadramon. Togemon was briefly seen as Palmon Digivolved all the way to Lillymon.
Lillymon is Palmon's Ultimate form. She is a pixie type Digimon. She looks a bit like a flower fairy.
Lillymon first debuted on August 3, 1999 when Myotismon isolated Odaiba from the rest of Tokyo so that his henchmen could gather the populace. During the vain attempt to fight back, Mimi's father almost got himself killed when he used a car to stop DarkTyrannomon. Mimi's sincere tears caused her crest to glow and Togemon to Digivolve into Lillymon, who tamed DarkTyrannomon. But Myotismon soon appeared. Lillymon put up a fight but was eventually paralyzed by Myotismon's Nightmare Claw attack, only to be healed by Wizardmon so she could be involved in the final battle with the villain himself. She later gave all her energy to Angewomon's Heaven's Charm which later destroyed Myotismon. Lillymon was also a needed ally in the fight against the Dark Masters and Apocalymon.
When Mimi used the crest power to free the Sovereigns, Palmon lost the power to become Lillymon. That was until three years later, on Christmas Day, Palmon and the other old generation Digimon had that power restored to them by one of the DigiCores of Azulongmon. Lillymon, with ExVeemon, Seadramon and the rest of the American DigiDestined, managed to take down a berserk Cherrymon and gather all the Digimon.
Rosemon is Palmon's Mega form.
When attempting to rescue Meicoomon from the Digimon Emperor and his version of Imperialdramon, Palmon quickly digivolves to Rosemon after Mimi learns that her even if her outspoken nature can be irksome to others, it's who she is. Alongside Vikemon, she is able to turn the tide against Imperialdramon, even after he takes his Fighter Mode form, giving Leomon time to fight off his infection and save Meicoomon.
Rosemon's Warp Digivolution sequence mimics that of Rosemon from Digimon Data Squad, in that her arms make a wave-like movement when formed, does an air stunt while dropping purple particles, and there are scenes focusing on her chest and buttocks.
