Digimon Dreamers[edit]

As he was on the way to school in "Digimon Dreamers", Kodou Ritsu found himself transported to the Digital World all of a sudden by Pulsemon, Bokomon and Patamon. The Digimon celebrated that their ritual worked, while Ritsu was shocked to find himself alongside Digimon. Pulsemon confirmed to Ritsu that they were Digimon, that he was in the Digital World, and that he was Ritsu's Partner Digimon who he tamed in his game. He then ordered Ritsu to train him so he'd become the strongest Digimon ever, but Ritsu confessed that he was actually about to delete Pulsemon, since he wouldn't evolve no matter how hard he was trained and, therefore, must be bugged. Pulsemon defended himself saying he was a late bloomer but would evolve into something awesome.

Pulsemon then got Ritsu to their training gym, where he instructed Ritsu to punish him if he failed or got lazy or tired, which got Ritsu annoyed and he tried to leave. After Bokomon and Patamon tried to stop him and accepted him leaving, respectively, Ritsu found all of them annoying, but was curious about why Pulsemon was so determined to get stronger. Pulsemon thought about his dream, to evolve into his Adult (Bulkmon), Perfect (Boutmon), and Ultimate (Kazuchimon) forms, and then become the strongest Digimon in the world. Ritsu felt a pulse coming from Pulsemon, who then got hit by his own sandbag.

Later on, after a Megadramon flew over Ritsu, Bokomon pointed out that Pulsemon's reason to become stronger was to protect Asunaro Village, where no Digimon could evolve past the Child level, though Pulsemon denied it. This got Ritsu to finally accept to train Pulsemon, and he allowed him to summon him at any time. Pulsemon cried and hugged Ritsu in happiness, and Ritsu left.

Later on, Ritsu was summoned again into the Digital World, but because he was taking a bath, he appeared naked, to Pulsemon's shock.

Pulsemon arrived alongside Bokomon and Patamon and interrupted Ritsu's relaxation in "Indoor Tamer・Ritsu" by shouting at him, as he hadn't called Ritsu so he'd lounge around. Instead, as his Tamer, it was his duty to make him evolve into the strongest Digimon ever. Ritsu confessed that, though he had offered to help Pulsemon, he didn't know how to. Pulsemon explained that a Digimon's bond with their Tamer could be the key to evolution, and that they'd go do some special training at the volcano. Ritsu didn't want to go, however, as he liked to spend his free time at home instead of going outdoors, which angered Pulsemon. Instead, he gave Patamon a selfie stick and a cellphone so Pulsemon could broadcast his training and Ritsu could give him advice remotely. This annoyed Pulsemon even further, making him question why he even summoned Ritsu at all then if he was going to do no more than gaming. Pulsemon then tied Ritsu up and forcefully took him alongside him, as breathing the same air would help deepen their bond, though Ritsu was against it.

Over at the volcano, Ritsu was terrified of the falling volcanic rocks coming from the erupting volcano, although Pulsemon, Bokomon and Patamon were unaffected. Pulsemon easily dodged the rocks then asked Ritsu for his advice, though that only convinced Ritsu he had none to give. Pulsemon got annoyed because he wanted to evolve, then tied Ritsu to himself so they'd bond more until their hearts became one, though Ritsu cried that he didn't want them to bond. Pulsemon then took a break because was hungry while volcanic rocks kept raining on them, which terrified Ritsu. Afterwards, Pulsemon smelled something sweet, which turned out to be Vegimon, who saw the group as a feast for themself, deep in the mountains. Patamon and Bokomon were worried as Vegimon was an Adult Digimon, but Pulsemon thought a real fight with Vegimon would give him experience to evolve. Vegimon was angry at being challenged by a Child Digimon, but Pulsemon was confident in himself because Ritsu was with him, and Digimon grew stronger with encouragement from their partners. Pulsemon and Vegimon rushed to fight each other, but Ritsu stopped Pulsemon. A volcanic rock then fell on Vegimon, defeating them instantly. Pulsemon celebrated his victory and how he was one step closer to becoming the strongest Digimon ever, although Patamon pointed out he didn't get any experience and Bokomon instead congratulated Ritsu for properly observing his surroundings, saying he had the markings of a master Tamer. From his part, Ritsu just wanted to go back to Asunaro Village and relax.

In the Real World in "Asunaro Meat", Ritsu went to WcDonald's as he was hungry and wanted burgers. However, before he could get there, he was summoned once again to the Digital World. Ritsu screamed at Pulsemon "my burgers!", which Pulsemon misunderstood as a human greeting, and Bokomon and Patamon started using it on each other, which got an annoyed Ritsu to correct them about it. Pulsemon then took Ritsu with him as he had good news of Asunaro Village, while a Chicomon, a Koromon, an Agumon, an Upamon, a Poyomon and a Tokomon admired Ritsu. Bokomon explained that Tanemon succeeded in selectively growing meat.

Over at the meat field, Tanemon confirmed that they had succeded at it, while Ritsu was shocked at seeing a field of meat, which was also observed by other Digimon from the village: on one side, two Agumon, a Penmon, a Mochimon, a Tunomon, a Koromon; on the other, a Chicomon, a Betamon, a Tokomon, a third Agumon, and a Poyomon. Patamon explained that Tanemon worked hard to grow the best meat possible, and a hungry Pulsemon jumped at the meat, but Tanemon glued his feet to the ground with their Nenchakusei no Awa, as the meat was not yet ready. To cook it, an Agumon started a fire while Ritsu, Patamon, Bokomon and a Chicomon observed. Once it was ready, Tanemon allowed Pulsemon to eat it. Pulsemon found it both delicious and energizing, feeling he could evolve just by eating it. Tanemon was overjoyed at it and vowed to grow more crops so everyone could enjoy them and evolve. Pulsemon, Patamon, Bokomon, two Agumon, a Koromon and a Jyarimon kept eating the meat while exclaiming how Tanemon's meat was the best, which Tanemon found creepy as it sounded like they were eating Tanemon, so they instead offered to call it Asunaro Meat, which got Pulsemon to point out that Tanemon's meat was Asunaro Meat, which Tanemon didn't like. Bokomon and Pulsemon offered some Asunaro Meat to Ritsu, who also loved it. Pulsemon pointed out that eating the same thing would link them in mind, stomach, and soul, and indeed both were perfectly in sync while they ate and their bond kept growing stronger thanks to the Asunaro Meat, as Bokomon and Patamon pointed out. Tanemon happily wondered if their meat was the key to evolution. The full Ritsu and Pulsemon then fell asleep, to Tanemon's shock. Afterwards, the sleeping Ritsu and Pulsemon sleep-talked about how Tanemon's meat was the best, Tanemon wished they'd stop calling it that, and Bokomon pointed out how they were synchronized even in their sleep.

As Pulsemon trained by punching a bag to become the strongest and evolve in "Orgemon Invasion", Ritsu, who was watching him alongside Bokomon and Patamon, asked him what kind of Digimon he'd turn into after evolving. Pulsemon was confident he'd become a Bulkmon, and Bokomon pointed out they're macho and cool, though Patamon doubted if Pulsemon could evolve into one. Pulsemon was confident about it and punched the bag hard enough to send it flying, convincing himself that he was in perfect form and close to evolving, but he then got hit in the back by the returning punching bag, shocking the onlookers, with Patamon hoping he'd evolve soon. Jyarimon then interrupted their training, warning them that an Orgemon had entered Asunaro Village.

As Orgemon ate the Asunaro Meat while assuring the Digimon of the village that he'd evolve for them, making Tanemon cry, he was stopped by a kick to the top of his head from Pulsemon, who declared that he'd keep Asunaro Village's meat safe to both Orgemon and Koemon, and the Digimon that had tried to defend Tanemon, who happily cried at his arrival. Orgemon was angry at Pulsemon, and only got more mad after the latter misunderstood his comment, so he went and punched Pulsemon in the head. Ritsu, Bokomon, Patamon, and the Digimon of Asunaro Village screamed at Pulsemon who had apparently been knocked out with a single blow, and Orgemon pointed out that, as a warrior, he made it a point not to go easy on anyone and they should not think badly of him, then tried to leave, only to stop in shock as Pulsemon got back up. Pulsemon taunted him to attack him again, claiming that he'd evolve, and Orgemon punched him in the head again, convincing himself that he must've accidentally held back earlier. Once again, Orgemon tried to leave, only for Pulsemon to get back up for a second time. Orgemon let loose a storm of blows on Pulsemon, to the fear of Ritsu, Bokomon and Patamon, but Pulsemon merely got up again. Furthermore, he was only getting more excited, as the more pain he endured, the closer he was to evolving, and laughed while ordering Orgemon to keep hurting him, freaking out the latter, while Ritsu just looked at him with a smile, accustomed to his partner's behaviour. Nonetheless, he tried to stop Pulsemon from pushing it too far, while Orgemon got extremely angry.

Their fight continued in "The Pulse of Evolution", where Orgemon hit Pulsemon with his Haouken, leaving him badly beaten on the ground as Ritsu, Bokomon, Patamon, Tanemon, Mochimon, Bubbmon, Chicomon, a Koromon, Poyomon and an Agumon watched them. Orgemon praised Pulsemon for making him use his Haouken, but blamed his loss on being just a Child, born in a village where no one can evolve, with Ritsu accepting that Orgemon being an Adult-level gave him too much of an advantage. Orgemon then pointed out Tamers were useless and challenged Ritsu to fight him, but Ritsu was terrified of him as he realized that, just as he was full when he went back to the Real World after eating in the Digital World, getting hurt or dying would be just as real. In his thoughts, Ritsu asked Pulsemon for forgiveness for not being able to do a thing and Orgemon mocked him, but Pulsemon called him a moron as he got back up, because he never said Ritsu had to fight alongside him, his job was to have the conviction that Pulsemon could beat Orgemon, and use that feeling to cheer Pulsemon on so he could defeat him. Bokomon seconded Pulsemon, as even if he felt powerless as a partner sometimes, with his wholehearted support, his bond with Pulsemon would give him strength. Ritsu acknowledged their words and cheered Pulsemon on with all his might. A vitals waveform went through both of them as their heartbeat was heard, and Pulsemon started glowing. Orgemon, Bokomon, Patamon, Ritsu, Tanemon and Chicomon looked at him in awe, as he seemingly broke the curse of Asunaro Village and they pictured him as the ideal Bulkmon, but in reality, only his head changed, with the rest of his body remaining that of Pulsemon's, to everyone's shock.
