In this series, he has entered high school (though in the original Japanese version, him and all the other older children
are only in middle school). Tai has grown emotionally by this time. He is much calmer and less likely to act without thinking.
Tai plays a major role in the first episode ("Enter Flamedramon"). When he senses that Agumon is in trouble,
he mysteriously enters the Digital World and tries to help him out. Along with Patamon and Gatomon, he finds a cave that has
a Digi-Egg with the Crest of Courage on it. He tries to lift it up (and fails), which causes three points of light to rise
and fly off. They are the three Digivices that Davis, Cody, and Yolei receive. After the battle with Monochromon, Tai also
gives Davis his goggles, since Davis broke his square goggles in the battle.
Three years later, Izzy is now in high school (middle school in the original version) and was a president of the Computer
Club. Izzy continues to play his technical role; he monitors the Digital World and alerts the new DigiDestined to upcoming
troubles and problems. Izzy devises the plan to invade Kens base; with Codys information that a pipeline will cross paths
with Kens base, he directs Agumon and Gabumon to create a diversion. Later, when Kens base is about to explode, Izzy tells
them the problem and when the warp is back to normal.
With Willis from America, he also figures out that the new Digivices have three new functions, and dubs them the D-3s.
Lastly, after school gets out, Izzy theorizes that the power of the D-3 is what really opens the gate to the Digital World.
This theory proves to be correct, and gives the DigiDestined the ability to open up ports at any time and any location, rather
than being limited to simply using the schools computer lab to move in and out of the Digital World.
The second season takes place three years after the original. During this time, Sora loses some of her tomboyishness and
is now learning the art of flower arranging from her mother. She also wears a sailor fuku. Although she no longer plays soccer,
she is in the tennis club and still joins the other Digidestined whenever they can. There are signs that show that Sora develops
feelings for Matt, such as when Sora goes backstage to give Matt some homemade cookies during the Christmas Special.
During Digimon Adventure 02, a portal to the Digital World opens in the United States, allowing Mimi to access the Digital
World. How she can enter is never revealed; the original Digivice cannot open a gate, sans Tai's mysterious entry into the
Digital World in the first episode. In addition to the clothing changes, she also changes her hair color as well.
She plays an important role in the episode that Arukenimon makes her first appearance. She is playing with a bunch of
Yukimibotomon/Snowbotomon, while Palmon is out collecting more food. While she is out, Palmon notices Arukenimon converting
a control spire into a Golemon. Arukenimon orders the Digimon to destroy the dam. Palmon runs back to warn Mimi, who messages
the others to come help. During the battle, after all five of the DigiDestined's Digimon are exhausted and defeated, Mimi
messages Ken to come help despite the protests from Cody and Yolei.
