Variations Subspecies


Digimon Dictionary


This lover of pranks has a very strong sense of curiosity. Although its body is small, it is a precious Holy type Digimon, and its appearance does not match the true strength it possesses. A Holy Ring is attached to its tail that serves as proof of its holy lineage, but if the Holy Ring comes off, it will be powered down and thus won't be able to exert its true power. It protects herself with long claws that it copied from the data of a SaberLeomon. Its special attacks are "Neko Punch", which attacks enemies with its long claws, and "Cat's Eye", which manipulates the opponent with a strong glint of its eyes. Those who it leers at will attack themselves. (Wildermon)




Digimon Accelerator - Nature


Its curiosity is mischief-loving and full of vitality. Its body is small, but it is a Digimon of valuable, holy lineage, and has an efficiency that does not match its appearance. It has attached a Holy Ring, which is a symbol of its holy lineage, to its tail, but when that Holy Ring becomes detached, it powers down and becomes unable to use its natural powers. To protect its body, it wears long claws that are copied from the data of SaberLeomon. For its special technique Neko Punch, it attacks its opponent using its long claws.  (Grímúlfr)

Battle Chronicle

Digimon Battle Chronicle


Although its body is small, it is truly a Champion level Digimon. While it might look cute, it has a very mature personality and possesses great power. Its gloves, which have long claws attached to them, are copied from SaberLeomon's data. (Garmmon)




Digimon V-Tamer Residence


A Holy Beast Digimon with an excellent sense of mischief. In spite of its appearance, it bears a dreadful amount of power. This precious Digimon wears a "Holy Ring", the source of the sacred lineage of Digimon and which testifies that it is a sacred Digimon of that lineage. But, when it comes off, it won't be able to unleash its power. It protects its body by attaching long claws that it copied from the data of a SaberLeomon. In addition, it's said that Gatomon was once a Mouse-type Digimon that was so attracted by the lifestyle of cats that she started to imitate them. (Wildermon)

Note-1 In D3 Ver. 2 , Gatomon is classified as a Rookie Digimon as it does not have a Tail Ring and can evolve into the Champion level Tail Ring form. Gatomon lost her Tail Ring when Unimon attack her in season 2. It was explained in the show that losing her Tail Ring, which is actually a Holy Ring, lowers her strength to that of a Rookie Digimon. This was to explain why Gatomon was able to Armor Evolve. This was later contradicted when Gatomon, still without her Tail Ring, Jogress Evolved to Silphymon with Aquilamon.

Note-2 The Rookie leveled Gatomon is known here as 'Gatomon', while the Champion leveled version is known as 'R-Gatomon'.

Note-3 According to the Digimon V-Tamer Residence, Tailmon was originally called 'Hatsukanezumon', which comes from the Japanese word for house mouse, hatsukanezumi. (Garmmon)
