The first episode of Digimon Adventures kicks off with the rest of the world experiencing droughts, storms and other problems. Taichi Yagami (八神 太一) and his friends, Yamato Ishida (石田 ヤマト), Sora Takenouchi (武之内 空), Izumi Kushiro (泉 光子郎), Mimi Tachikawa (太刀川 ミミ), Takaishi Takeru (高石 タケル) and Jyuo Kido (城戸 丈) were just part of a summer camp until a blizzard occurred. When the snow storm subsided, Digivices fell from the sky and into their possessions and the DigiDestined children were transported into the Digital World.
Taichi wakes up in an unfamiliar place with a pink, round baby Digimon called Koromon (コロモン) bouncing happily, saying that it was waiting for him. Apparently, the same has happened to his friends. Through the creatures called Digimon, Taichi and his pals find out that they are in File Island (ファイル島), a place in the Digital World. With an encounter with a Kuwagamon (クワガーモン), the baby Digimon Digivolve and transform into more stronger Digimon.
