Takato wakes up in a cave with all the other Tamers and their partners except Henry, Terriermon, Renamon and Rika. He wakes up Guilmon and heads outside to relieve Henry and Terriermon. Takato wonders where Rika is. Rika and Renamon are sleeping by a tree in a swamp, with a swarm of glowing flying creatures circling them. Meanwhile, Beelzemon rides his Behemoth through a canyon. The next morning, the Tamers decide to look for Rika and Renamon at the banner. They arrive, but can't find the banner. Guilmon catches Calumon's scent, so the Tamers set out after him. Around then, in the real world, a government official tries to reactivate Hypnos. This sets off a storm in the Digital World, and the Tamers barely dodge being sucked up by another data stream. Jeri notices that Takato's backpack is glowing, and he realizes the PDA Yamaki gave him started to work. He e-mails Yamaki, who reads it along with Riley. As soon as the storm stops, the PDA stops working. Elsewhere, Renemon goes off to find food, leaving Rika with the DigiGnomes. Beelzemon finds some Chrysalimon and decides to test his power. As he destroys the Chrysalimon, the crest on Calumon's head starts to glow. The remaining Chrysalimon digivolve into Infermon. It manages to get in one attack before Beelzemon destroys it and loads its data. Caturamon orders Beelzemon to fulfill his end of the bargain. Rika starts complaining that she's thirsty, so the DigiGnomes drag her to a river. While she's drinking. The DigiGnomes start to freak out. Suddenly, Rika gets dragged away by a flash flood, and calls for Renamon. A stick attached to a vine is tossed in the water, and Rika is dragged out. She sees that her rescuer is Calumon. Unfortunately, a second larger flood is coming, and this one is over land too. Renamon runs over and grabs Rika and Calumon, but they still get caught by the wave. It sends them out high over the desert. Renamon digivolves into Kyubimon to save them. Meanwhile, the government agents are trying to restart Juggernaut. Rika, Kyubimon, and Calumon reunite with the rest of the group. While the group is planning how to get home, Beelzemon finds them. Kyubimon recognizes him as Impmon. Kyubimon digivolves to Taomon, but before they can fight, Juggernaut is activated. A storm fills the Digital World, and Taomon protects the rest of the group. Juggernaut runs out of control, and Yamaki and Riley arrive to fix it. In the Digital World, Caturamon appears, and destroys Taomon's barrier. He grabs Calumon as Taomon reforms her shield. Takato, Henry, and Terriermon are outside the barrier. Takato gets swept into one data stream, while Henry and Terriermon get swept into a different one. Yamaki succeeds in shutting down Juggernaut, ending the storm.

Other notes[]

Animation errors

  • In one scene, when Beelzemon fights the Chrysalimon, Beelzemon's scleras are missing.
  • In the scene where Takato exits the cave, one of Guilmon's eyes looks to be that of his "feral look" while the other is normal.
  • When Renamon Digivolves to Kyubimon it says evolution instead of digivolution!

Dubbing changes

  • In the original, the music that played when Beelzemon was fighting the Kurisarimon was Beelzemon's theme Black Intruder.
  • In the original, there are two close-up scenes of Beelzemon pointing his gun at Kyubimon's face, which were replaced in the dubbed version with reused scenes from shortly afterward of Takato & Guilmon and Kenta & Kazu reacting to how scary he's become.

Miscellaneous trivia

  • The English title can be taken as either the reverse of "The Perfect Storm" or a combination of "Impmon" and "The Perfect Storm."
  • Japanese title card image is a group shot of Jeri, Rika, Takato, Henry, Kenta and Kazu.
