Child (成長期 Seichouki) is the term used which refers to the 3rd stage of Digimon evolution, also referred to as level III. (Dub: Rookie).
Child Digimon are among the most popular and well-known, being heavily featured in the anime and latter video games. This form is appealing because they are generally young enough to be considered cute and cuddly, while still having distinct designs and attack powers. Their size also means that it is easier for them to fit into places larger Digimon would not be able to. Digimon evolution begins to branch wildly at this point, with some Digimon such as Agumon having countless possible evolutions.
