Ulrich assessed the situation before him, showing no expression on his face as normal, but panicking internally. Every angle of this situation was bad. The purple quadruped wasn't as much of a problem as the rest, but it was still a threat. The digging rabbit beast was evidently the biggest threat, as it was making all Champions or higher revert to Rookies, leaving the majority of the forces unable to fight. The walking eggs were also a big problem, looking for people to attack with their shooty face shadows. But Ulrich's attention was immediately drawn to a cry for help from a younger human. They were with the baby Digimon who were fleeing, and had found themselves surrounded by giant ugly chickens with teeth. Continuing to survey his surroundings, now more fervently, Ulrich spotted the pile of Armor Digi-eggs. Recognising them from his last encounter with them, he rushed over and picked up an egg with the Sincerity crest on it, tossing it over to Yiju. He took out his Digivice to perform his own Armor digivolution, but hesitated. These eggs were still here, not being used. What was to stop him from taking one and adding it to his steadily growing collection of Armor forms? It would bring the total to three, after all, and Ulrich was not one to let opportunities like that pass him by. But then, what if somebody else needed one of them and there wasn't any left? Altruism was not Ulrich's strong point, but even he had to admit that everybody here needed what they could get, and he did have two Armor forms already. Sighing, he got back onto his feet and headed over to Yiju to help him perform the Armor digivolution
Yiju was finding it hard to concentrate on one thing at a time with all the stuff going on around them. This could totally all be fixed with no major damage to anything or anyone right ... right optimistic of a favorable outcome he turned to look for Ulrich who wasn't far away catching up with him . He appeared to be looking at a pile of eggs with a bunch of baby digimon nearby Yiju thought nothing of it that was until Ulrich had tossed one to him he almost dropped the thing not having the greatest hand -eye coordination skills in the end he was able to catch it without dropping it.,Normally this would be an noteworthy accomplishment but looking at the egg he was instantly intrigued turning it over in his hands then lifting it to his ear shaking it slightly not the best idea he realized after word " what am I suppose to do with this ? " he asked Ulrich " I have a digimon "
[You need to use it to Digivolve Keomon,] Ulrich explained, signing as rapidly as he could whilst still being comprehensible, [Take out your Digivice, hold up the Egg, and say "Digi-Armor Energise"!] Holding up his own Digivice to demonstrate, he pulled up the Digi-Egg of Knowledge on its inventory and tossed it up in the air, signing [Digi-Armor Energise!] himself before catching the Digivice and holding it forward. He had clearly been practicing this technique in his spare time Zimbamon took a running leap and, in a burst of light, transformed into Madagamon, wings spread wide to take flight [Your turn,] Ulrich signed to Yiju, [Though you don't have to sign it] Ulrich and Madagamon then turned their attention to the giant teeth chickens and moved to get between them and the young human and baby Digimon, Madagamon flying relatively high and unleashing a huge gust of wind with a flap of her wings. The Kokatorimon, surprised, were pushed back slightly
Yiju watched as Ulrich digivolved Zimbamon using sign language impressed he claps " woah I didn't know you could digivolve digimon that way! Oh right my Digivice , where did I put that " he pats his pockets not finding anything except his phone he turns his attention to his backpack Yiju collects them Todays backpack was a catpack it was black in color and had cat ears on the top and a cat face on the front. Unzipping it he pulls out a strange assortment of things snacks , comic books , 3ds games among other things at the bottom of the bag Yiju pulls out hsi 3ds witch was his Digivice slinging the backpack back over his shoulder he picks the egg back up " okay how do I do this again remembering Ulriches instructions he holds up the 3ds to the egg and says uncertainly " digi armor energise? " there was a bright flash of light and his companion Keomon Digivolved into Fernecmon
'Our goal is to help these kids get to a safe place!' Madagamon shouted over to Yiju, saving Ulrich from trying to sign over distance, 'Tiny fox guy, you're small, try leading the babies away to safety!' Kokatorimon lashed out at Madagamon with a sword made of feathers but, luckily, Madagamon was out of their reach. She responded to the attack by flying up even higher, motioning for Ulrich to help Fernecmon get the kids to safety, before unleashing another gust of wind. Ulrich nodded and, using the gap that had formed between the Kokatorimon, tried to lead the baby Digimon to a nearby tree
" my name is Fernecmon " the small fox grumbles flicking its tail in annoyance because Yiju was playing with the digimon's large ears fangirling over how cute Fernecmon was , they were about the size of a domestic cat has large ears and wore a leaf green cloak . Hopping out of Yiju's arms Fernicmon ran over to the baby digimon it was true he blended in with them pretty well. Helping to lead the baby digimon to the tree with Ulrich and Yiju Fernecmon quieted them gathered them close around him so they wouldn't get hurt accidentally by the battle
The higher Madagamon flew, the less effective her attacks became, but also the less chance of her being hurt. Weighing up her options, Madagamon decided it was worth taking a risk, and dived at Kokatorimon, singing a song powerful enough to cause sonic waves, before unleashing a gust of wind just far enough a way to be powerful. However, that close range left her open to attack, and the feather sword slammed into her from below, sending her up and then back down, crashing into the ground. Clearly hurt but getting up anyway, Madagamon took to the sky once more, though she was having problems flying straight. She tried to unleash a gust of wind, but it pushed her around as much as it did the Kokatorimon Ulrich watched, concerned, from below the tree, as stoic as always, but one who knew him well would know that he was clearly worried. Madagamon needed time to recover, but wasn't able to get it The young human who had cried for help reached for the hand of a young human-looking Digimon and gripped it tightly
out of no where a young kid steps out from where he was hiding a short distance away from the battle clearly in response to the Digimon in trouble he glared up the ugly chicken Kokatorimon he wore a black hoodie and in the hood sat a round white digimon with long ears and a fluffy cat like tail it wasn't very big or powerful looking clearly just a little in -training digimon what was this kid thinking ! noticing the kid Yiju yells over at them to find somewhere safe to hide but all attempts to convince the kid to rethink things were cheekily ignored After a long sigh Yiju gave up and just watched ready to help if necessary. Taking the Digimon out of his jacket hood he smiles at it " you ready for this Cymrimon? " the digimon responded with a clear " yes! " without any warning the kid stuck a baseball pose and threw the poor unsuspecting Cymrimon at the chicken ! With a surprised squeal Cymrimon actually hit Kokatorimon and began falling before Cymrimon righted themselfes and began attacking Kokatorimon complaining loudly about this not being the plan at all
This kid was young and reckless. Such blind courage would only serve to be his downfall in this situation, especially against Kokatorimon of all things. Turning its attention to Cymrimon, Kokatorimon raised its feather sword to attack. Madagamon used this opening to unleash another gust of wind, knocking both Kokatorimon and Cymrimon back, before getting between the two Digimon and charging a ball of black and purple flame, aiming it at the Kokatorimon's face and firing at point blank range. This knocked the Kokatorimon backwards a fair degree, but also served to enrage it. It began charging a fire of its own within its beak and fired it at Madagamon, narrowly missing as she grabbed Cymrimon and dashed away as fast as possible, back to the tree. Not giving Kokatorimon the time to charge another fireball, Madagamon rushed it and successfully distracted it, dodging several fireballs before unleashing her own gust of wind
walking back to the tree the kid shoves his hands into his pocket as Cymrimon went to meet him the digimon was no longer mad about being thrown that way .Putting Cymrimon back into his jacket hood he sat on the ground next to Fernecmon who was stareing at him " I could have taken it " he mutters accepting defeat Yiju smiles " sure you could " the kid just rolls his eyes
Madagamon couldn't dodge forever, she simply wasn't fast enough, and was still injured. It was only a matter of time before the margin of Kokatorimon's error got narrower, and then a fireball finally hit home. It was just the tip of Madagamon's wing, but it turned the area to stone, weighing Madagamon down and sending her crashing to the ground. Ulrich immediately ran over to help Madagamon, his face finally showing some emotion: fear. He didn't know how to deal with this enemy. Madagamon had gotten injured this badly because he didn't know. It was all his fault. As doubt clouded his mind, the Armor Digivolution broke, and Madagamon reverted to Zimbamon 'You have to do something,' the young human said quietly, 'Please, Mr Grown-Up, you have to do something' The Digimon with the young human let go of her hand and stepped forward, tapping their staff against the ground. They were a younger teenager, and wore a pale pink habit 'Fernecmon, you are fast and agile. Dodging Kokatorimon should be easier for you, especially since you are small. I will aid you in distracting it, but please figure out what attacks you have. We need someone with your speed in order to win this' 'And you,' they turned to the young boy, 'You need to figure out how to get Cymrimon to Rookie stage. Throwing an In-Training into battle is foolhardy, especially against a Champion. You will be able to help out far more if you can figure out Digivolution' With that, they pulled down their veil to cover their eyes, and ran at the Kokatorimon, motioning for Ulrich to take Zimbamon back to the tree and regroup. They used their staff as a pole vault and landed on top of the giant chicken, grabbing onto its next feathers and riding it like some kind of rodeo bull. They couldn't do much like this, but neither could Kokatorimon
Fernecmon stands up untagling himself from a few baby digimon and stretches not unlike a cat would " guess its my turn then " Yiju nods what the digimon was saying made sense " be careful fernecmon " Yiju says with confidence Fernecmon was smart and reliable. picking up speed Fernecmon runs right at Kokatorimon before reaching it and the digimon riding it Fernecmon rolls into a ball and spikes form on the cloak hes wearing he slams right into Kokatorimon sending loose feathers to the ground and making Kokatorimon unbalanced but it wasnt enough to knock it over sensing a counter attack he quickly jumps aside and sends leaf arrowheads at it . This attack did little damage the leaf arrowheads unable to get past the layer of feathers
The Digimon riding the Kokatorimon turned their staff around in their hand and slammed the trident head of it straight down, causing the Kokatorimon to screech and flounder. They pulled the staff out as it fell onto its face, jumping back and pointing the trident head at it in case it moved again. Noticing that its brethren had fallen, the other Kokatorimon turned their attention to the group. There were three more in total, and they were likely as sturdy as the first one. The Digimon with the staff clenched their teeth and tapped the ground with the base of their staff, forming a barrier around themselves and the tree where everybody was 'If you have any ideas, any of you, this would be a wonderful time to state them,' they commented Zimbamon had recovered, but Ulrich was still doubting himself, thinking over his options. Madagamon hadn't been fast enough, and Gabonmon wouldn't be either. They couldn't digivolve normally, and the only reason the first chicken went down was because four Digimon had attacked it, two of which had been matching its level. They needed a Digimon who could move fast and hit hard, or to form a battle plan with as much teamwork and as few flaws as possible. He took out one of his pre-made flashcards and showed it to the young boy. It read "Do you have a Digivice?"
the young boy nodded and produced a Nintendo switch form who knows where and offers it to Ulrich. Yiju thinks things over for a few minutes taking his time despite the approaching digimon " Fernecmon can hit fast but it lacks enough power because of his size what if we combined that with another one of our digimons attacks ?" he offered
[That could work,] Ulrich spelled out with one hand, rifling through his flashcards with the other, finding another flashcard and presenting it to the young boy. It read "Do you know how to Digivolve?" 'There might still be some of those eggs left,' the young human offered nervously, fidgeting with a book-like VPet device, 'I don't know how to use them, but you could teach me, and then maybe Sistermon could help better... Also, since the butterfly lady isn't fast, maybe it would be worth trying another egg on your cat?' The Digimon named Sistermon looked back at the young human and smiled warmly 'That's a good idea, Nonno,' they replied, 'Do you think we would be able to go and pick up some of the eggs? We can get one for Cymrimon as well. I can protect you with my shield whilst we go to get them' Ulrich looked over at Yiju. This plan could work, but it would take teamwork. To distract the Kokatorimon for now, they could combine Fernecmon and Gabonmon's attacks, and if the young boy could use Digivolution, then his Rookie would be able to help out too
the young boy looks down suddenly shy he stays quiet pulling up some of the grass he whispers something but the people and digimon around him are unable to make it out Yiju walks over and places a hand on his shoulder making a guess what he means to say " you're going to have to speak up a bit more " he says trying to encourage him. sighing the boy raises his voice a little " i said i don't know how !" he didn't say it in a rude way the tone that came with his outburst was one of frustration with himself about not knowing how to digivolve this can be easily taught though. Smiling Yiju turns to the others " want me to come with you to get the eggs we need ? "
Ulrich nodded in approval to Yiju before taking a blank flashcard and writing on it and handing it to the boy. It read "Open the Digimon app on your Switch, hold the Switch forward, and say "Digivolve!"" 'Mr Grown-Up can help us bring the eggs back,' Nonno noted, clapping her hands together, 'Will Fernecmon be okay here? He's probably needed'
the boy turned on his switch and closed out of the video game that he was playing and opened the Digimon app placing Cymrimon on the ground he holds the switch out twords him" here goes nothing , Digivolve ! " there was a flash of light and Cymrimon digivolved into Zoyumon . " Fernecmon will be just fine and hes got Ulrich with him " Yiju points out Ulrich for them " Fernecmon likes Ulrich a lot almost more then me no worries he'll be fine wile we are gone " he smiles " my name is Yiju whats yours ? " he asks realizing something he adds " we need to know witch eggs we need to bring back "
'At this stage of the fight, I do not think that we have the choice to be picky,' Sistermon replied, 'It is likely that most of the eggs have already gone, so it would be best to just bring back three random ones' 'Or ones that look nice!' Nonno cheered 'That too,' Sistermon replied with a small barely-audible chuckle 'I'm Nonno, Mr Yiju! It's nice to meet you!' Nonno replied, introducing herself with a minor curtsey, 'My Digimon is Sistermon, but don't let the name fool you! They're a boy, and also not my sister. I do have a sister though!' Ulrich shook his head with a small sigh, amused by the situation. At least Sistermon's barrier was holding up well enough to stop the Kokatorimon's attacks, even though by this point the shield itself had been reduced in size, causing some of the babies to have to huddle to stay inside it. He stood up and took out his Digivice, once more throwing it up into the air and signing [Digi-Armor Energise!] as Zimbamon stepped forward, digivolving into Gabonmon as she did so 'You help us, kid!' she chimed back at the young boy, 'Your Digimon should be able to help! What's your name anyway?'
" its nice to meet you too Nonno , I think the eggs were over this way " Yiju leads them over to the pile or whats left of it anyway " you can pick if you want to Nonno " . The boy looked in awe at his digimon as it had completely changed it was still white in color but now it looked even more like a cat then the blob he had before his new digimon has bold black and silver stripes and spots a long powerful tail with a bell on the end . Hearing the question he turned his attention to them he hesitated but discided to tell them " my name is Riley "
There weren't many eggs left by this point, but Nonno picked three up, unperturbed. The first one she selected was a long peanut-looking egg with a lightning blade sticking out of it, which she quickly handed to Yiju 'This one's for Cymrimon! It has teeth like a cat or a dog on it!' she cheered, before returning to the small pile, and selecting a very rounded egg with two tiny wings. She handed this one to Sistermon, 'Look the symbol looks like your veil!' The final one she picked up looked slightly like the head of a halberd, and she moved it like a toy plane whilst making nyoom sounds Gabonmon was powerful but slow, and though she certainly couldn't tank hits forever, she was standing her ground surprisingly well, her fire sword clashing with the feather sword of one of the Kokatorimon. The other two were wailing on her with their own swords, which she was blocking as best she could with her spare arms. Ulrich meanwhile was rapidly signing out attack plans to Fernecmon, with the aim of getting him to go between the Kokatorimon's legs and do a lot of twists and turns to try and confuse them and distract them long enough to get some of the heat off of Gabonmon before they got angry again
Fernecmon listens to Ulrich's plan for a minute " sounds like a good idea" he runs off twords the Kokatorimon and begins running in between their legs he almost got stepped on a few times but he soon got the hang of it he calls to them sometimes to keep their attention on himself . " your right it does look like teeth , these are all great choises should we take them back to the others ?"
'Yeah, let's go!' Nonno cheered, leading the way back to the main group but making sure to stay close to Sistermon so as to remain inside the shield. They didn't take long to arrive and, once they did, the eggs were handed out, and Ulrich wrote down another flash card to teach Riley how to perform an Armor Digivolution: "You have to rely on the power of your friendship with your Digimon. That's what this egg means. Do you understand?"
After successfully digivolveing Zoyumon with the armor egg Riley watched as his usually cat like digimon changed into something he would call more Fox like but with a lightning theme the digimon introduced its self as Raijmon " how can we help ? " Riley asks .Yiju returns and sits down on the ground next to Ulrich this was his usual spot he gets an update on what they missed wile they were getting the eggs
Nonno took out her book-shaped VPet once more, pressed a few buttons, and held it forward, cheering "Digi-Armor Energise!" As the light of digivolution engulfed Sistermon, they let down their shield and ran at the nearest Kokatorimon. As they did so, their lower body shifted to be more horse-like, and a horn grew from their head as their veil dropped from their hair onto their new back, becoming a caparison. As the light tore away from the now-galloping Digimon, they lowered their head and rammed into the Kokatorimon, their horn making a great spear and causing a fair amount of damage. As this had been the one that Gabonmon was parrying, she took the opportunity to raise her sword up and slam it down onto the chicken's head, causing it to fall and become still Ulrich, meanwhile, was signing to Yiju, [Fernecmon and the lightning fox can team up well I think. The Kokatorimon at Gabonmon's back is pretty open, but make sure to be fast. Try aiming lightning for its beak and see if Fernecmon can do that rolling technique whilst in the air - the downward force from that attack should make it do more damage]
Yiju explains the plan to Riley and Raijmon who don't know sign language Fernecmon tired from all the running summons the last of his energy and leads Raijmon over to the kokatorimon that was pointed out to them after confirming they both knew the plan Raijmon aims a bolt of lightning for the kokatorimon's beak as soon as the bolt as cleared Fernecmon using Raijmon as a boost jumped from their back to the kokatorimon's back them using their needle cloak attack he jumps and aims for the top of the chickens head
The added downward force, as Ulrich had stated, compounded the effectiveness of the attack, sending the Kokatorimon crashing to the floor. One left [Gabonmon, fall back,] Ulrich signed, holding up the egg Nonno had brought back for him, [Let's try this one out] Gabonmon jogged back to Ulrich as the centaur Digimon kept the final Kokatorimon occupied. Once back with Ulrich, she reverted to Zimbamon and did a small cheerful pirouette to show she was ready Instead of his usual flashy antics, Ulrich placed the egg on the floor, and then carefully balanced his Digivice on the egg, before signing [Digi-Armor Energise]. The egg formed into light and shot upwards, taking the Digivice with it and into Ulrich's waiting hand. The Digivice then shot out its own light, engulfing Zimbamon, who shifted in size and shape until she resembled a harpy. When the light faded, she set off at a speed previously not available to her, and took off into the sky with a flap of her wings before crashing down on the Kokatorimon. The centaur took this chance to slam their horn into the Kokatorimon, and the two allied Digimon pinned the giant chicken down 'Now, Raijmon!' the centaur shouted, 'Hit it with a lightning bolt!'
Raijmon turned and quickly aimed a bolt of lightling so it would only effect the Kokatorimon
The lightning hit the Kokatorimon between the eyes, and it let out a horrendous turkey-like scream before going limp. Smiling to themselves about a job well done, the centaur Digimon and the harpy Digimon reverted to their Rookie forms, running happily back to their respective Tamers. The babies all cheered, as Nonno did too 'Are we okay to leave them there, or should we move them?' Sistermon asked, 'It would take some time, but, between us, we should be able to drag them off some distance' [Nah,] Ulrich signed in reply, hoping Sistermon could understand because there was no way he was going to write out yet another flashcard, [Once the other Tamers are done, we'll figure out what to do with all of the defeated Digimon] 'What should we do now?' Nonno asked Riley, sitting down next to him, 'We're too small to help the grown-ups move big chickens. Do you have any cool Switch games?'
" Yeah ! " Riley says turning on his switch and turning the screen so Nonno can see he begins to show her all the games and apps he has letting her play some of them
