In a world where the adventures of the DigiDestined are nothing but a television show, a young boy named Takato finds a strange, blue card in his pile of Digimon playing cards. After scanning it, his card reader turns into an actual digivice! That night, Takato scans images and information about Guilmon, the digimon he made up, into the digivice, creating a digi-egg within it. In his dreams, Takato witnesses a battle between Lynxmon and another digimon named Renamon, who is the partner of a young girl. The next day, the digi-egg hatches into Guilmon, and Takato uses his digivice to track him. However, a group of scientists is also monitoring the digimon.
