|Human Partner||Player (Digimon Story)|
Pagumon first appears as a Agumon (Black). Agumon (Black) is a surly Digimon who appears in Training Peak, challenging the Player. After being defeated, he evolves to Dark Tyranomon and demands another rematch but is again defeated. Despite wanting to grow ever stronger, Dark Tyranomon is killed when the Protagonist is confronted by Mugendramon in the Chrome Mine. Agumon (Black) is reborn as Pagumon, whose care is the Protagonist's quest as a Silver Tamer. After growing closer to the Protagonist, Pagumon reveals that he used to be an Andiramon (Deva) who was abandoned by a previous Tamer against Chimairamon and was reborn as Agumon (Black). Through their shared travels, he eventually decides to trust in the Protagonist, and when the Protagonist finds a Core Piece, he is able to assume his Andiramon form once more. Andiramon aids the Protagonist in defeating Chimairamon once and for all, and he then joins the Protagonist permanently, which is represented as 100% Andiramon scan data. The Protagonist's success in raising Andiramon pleases Baihumon, who allows the Protagonist to advance to the Gold Tamer rank.
