PawnChessmon is a fictional character from the Digimon franchise, a Rookie-level Puppet Digimon born from the data of a chess program. PawnChessmon's personality is one of a person making its impression in the world by achievements. PawnChessmon come in two colors, black and white—naturally, they are modeled after the Pawn Chess piece. The two types are rivals. PawnChessmon are Puppet type Digimon who were born from data inside a chess game on a supercomputer. They may have a weak amount of power, but these mysterious infantry soldiers become more popular in the world with each achievement listed, thus giving them powers equal to a Mega. Their motto is "Only to advance!"
The two PawnChessmon are the partners of Megumi and Miki, the two DATS operators. They help with DATS's attempts to keep Digimon from damaging the peace of the real world, and can often be seen working at computer terminals. They usually stay out of battle, but lend a hand by digivolving to Champion when SaberLeomon's army attacks , and by digivolving to Ultimate when Belphemon appears. However, Belphemon is able to degenerate them back to their Rookie forms using his chains. They also fought against the Royal Knight Gallantmon but were defeated. Later, PawnChessmon were present in the battle against Yggdrasill but did little fighting. They eventually returned to the Digital World with the other Digimon.
- Pyramid Formation: Uses a special formation after procuring rear support from their comrades, allowing them to halt the attacks of even an Ultimate-class Digimon.
The name "PawnChessmon" refers only to the Rookie form of these Digimon. Throughout the series the PawnChessmon gain the ability to Digivolve into a number of more powerful forms, each with a different name and special attack. However, the Rookie level is their preferred form and the one they spend most of their time in.
RookChessmon is the Ultimate form of PawnChessmon (Black). He first appears to fight Belphemon, and puts up a rather good fight, but his defensive technique Castle Wall is destroyed by Belphemon. Belphemon constricts RookChessmon with his chains, reducing him to his Rookie level. He next appears in battle against the Royal Knight Gallantmon, but is defeated easily.
BishopChessmon is the Ultimate form of PawnChessmon White. Just like RookChessmon, BishopChessmon first appears to fight Belphemon. He manages to put up a good fight in the battle, but is reduced to a PawnChessmon by Belphemon's chains. He next appears in battle against the Royal Knight Gallantmon, but is defeated easily.
