Recap: Digimon Adventure E 16 Dark Evolution Skull Greymon
The kids and their Digimon look for a place where Etemon won’t find them, while Taichi tries to raise everyone’s spirits by declaring that they’ll definitely win now that they’ve found a Crest. They try to figure out how to trigger evolution to the next level; Koushirou points out that the Digimon generally evolve when their partner is in danger and they have a lot of energy.Following this, Taichi reasons that for Agumon to evolve, he’ll have to be full of energy, and promptly stuffs Agumon full of food until he can’t eat anymore. Everyone is rather apprehensive of the whole situation (especially since Taichi took all of their food to give to Agumon), including Agumon himself, but Taichi remains confident as ever.The other Digimon express pity for Agumon, who seems to be in an awkward situation due to Taichi, but Koushirou and Sora reflect that Taichi had always been nice and caring to his fellow members of the soccer club. Sora says that normally, if he looks a little bullheaded, Taichi is eventually considerate to his surroundings, but that since he got his Crest, he’s acting like a different person.Jou’s Tag begins to glow, and the others realize that his Crest must be nearby. Jou starts running to the direction he believes it to be in, but trips over a cable of the Dark Network, which alerts Etemon to their location. The location is rather far from where Etemon is, so he arranges for some Gazimon to set up a “welcome show” for them there.The kids arrive at a coliseum, which has some mysterious things like a soccer field and a widescreen TV. Taichi tells the others to split up and look for it, but Agumon is too stuffed to move, and Jou offers to look for it with Gomamon while the others rest. Sora finds a soccer ball; the remaining kids and Digimon decide to split into two teams, humans vs. Digimon, with Palmon as the goalkeeper, but Taichi kicks the ball away and hits the Gazimon in the distance.Taichi yells at the others for playing soccer at a time like this, but before the team can properly react - and before Jou is able to find his Crest - Etemon unleashes his trap, trapping everyone but Agumon under a goal post that shocks anyone who tries to escape. Etemon then releases his “special guest”: another Greymon. With Agumon as the only one able to do anything, Taichi has him evolve to Greymon.The two Greymon fight it out, but Taichi’s Greymon starts to fall behind and ends up in a position where he’ll die if he doesn’t evolve further. Taichi urges Greymon to evolve further, despite there being no reaction from his Crest, and the kids realize that Greymon is moving with much slower reaction time due to Taichi having stuffed him so much. Very pleased with this result, Etemon orders his Gazimon minion to prepare the explosive “finale”, but Gomamon manages to summon fishes from the surrounding fountains to prevent it.
