Dolphmon is a Sea Animal Digimon. A unique signal that originated within software for researching communication between different kinds of groups changed into Dolphmon, a Digimon with a unique existence. Due to its habitat being limited to the sea, it became able to move about the sea at high speeds. As expected from its appearance, it possesses advanced intelligence, but its form of thought is too complex for a normal person to understand. Although it is a species that doesn't like useless battles, it won't go easy against an opponent that comes and challenges it.[3]


  • Pulse Blast (Shaking Pulse): Emits the ultrasonic waves from its mouth that it uses to communicate, just at maximum power.
  • Dolphin Kick
  • Blast Away (Bon Voyage)
  • Water Wave: Attacks with a big tsunami.
  • Divine Rain

As a wild digimon, Dolphmon appears in Asuka West Sector (through fishing) and seabed connecting Asuka West Sector with Asuka Central Sector and Asuka South Sector.

Tamer Poemy (Asuka Boot Mountain), and some A.o.A Troopers (in Amaterasu Wind Prairie and Amaterasu North Badlands W) have Dolphmon as their partner.

It is also available as a Blue Champion Card with 9/7.
