Ponchomon is a Ghost Digimon. It armor-digivolved due to the "Digi-Egg of Sincerity". Although it is classified as a Ghost-type, it is an unusual Digimon that appears to be a Plant-type, as far as you can tell from its appearance, and it is rumored that when a Togemon has died due to unforeseen circumstances, it will become a Ponchomon. It is said to be a Digimon that was generated from a "Latin music distribution program" that exists on the Network. It looks as though it has a cheerful personality, but its facial expression can't be read, and it is eerie to other Digimon. Because all of its actions are performed with a Latin rhythm, it views Digimon that can't keep up with the beat as its enemies. It seems to get along with Bakemon, who moves to its own music.[7]
