It is almost time for the Autumn Festival down into the Rocky Valley, where various Digimon are gathering, ready to take part in challenges meant to showcase their abilities. Your team insisted to let them participate, so you already filled out the forms and got the approval letters back.
Knowing that the road to the Valley is hazardous and full of landslides, you prepare the best you can and start the journey together with the team.
Except for a couple of earthquakes and almost being smashed to pieces by tumbling rocks, you arrive at the festival just time. But taking a look at the Jury list, your jaw drops: Taku is listed as the special juror-guest! There was no difficulty in finding him, as you can hear his boasts from a dozen of stalls away. Nonetheless, you are very happy in seeing your old friend and continue talking all day until the first challenge of the evening.
There is only one Digimon participant left, though... you have no idea who it might be, but the huge crowd is getting impatient due to the delay, and not to mention seeing which Digimon can lift off the most Agumons.
The ground is shaking, and one of the tallest Digimon makes its appearance: Valvemon! The only being not scared off is Taku, who starts shouting his lungs out to the Digimon: "You're late and made everybody grow restless; therefore I decide to disqualify you!" Valvemon stomps the ground and Digimon start tumbling around, while your team is worried that some might get hurt. Trying to tell Taku to change his mind, Valvemon lashes out and pulls Taku up in his body, and starts running away! "Hurry team, we must save Taku!"
