Players start with an egg that hatches into a Botamon, which then has to enter tournaments, get funds, hunt more than 200 Digimon and become the Digimon Champion.
Dracomon, the 10th-anniversary Digimon made an appearance in this game.
The gameplay is very similar to that of a Digimon Virtual Pet; you must feed and take and care of multiple Digimon and put them in battles.
IGN staff writer Lucas M. Thomas listed the game as one of the "tears" on his "Cheers & Tears" list of DS fighting games.
He bemoaned the confusing nature of the Digivolution mechanic, adding that the Pokémon series offered a more straightforward approach to evolution.
