4. Battle immobilized status
While in battle, if the HP of the partner or mercenary Digimon becomes 0, then its status becomes battle
immobilized. When that happens, motion is unavailable and you will see a warning message in the upper
screen. You are unable to resurrect on the spot when you are battle immobilized.
You are automatically transfered to a nearby town. You should be aware of the EXP penalty when your
status is battle immobilized once you reach Tamer Lv 5, and Digimon Lv.11.
DS is the energy used by the partner or mercenary Digimon in order to maintain its evolved status or to use skills. Each of the 3 tamers has different DS capacities. DS increases as the Tamer, partner and mercenary Digimon level up. DS gradually recovers when not in combat. You can also accelerate the recovery by using certain items.
Partner and mercenary Digimon have their own combat skills. Depending on the Digimon's inclination, skills
are divided into short-range attacks and long-range attacks. In the beginning, Digimon have only one skill
available. But as you level up, a new skill is added every 5 level-ups. Skills can be used either by using
short-cut keys or by clicking on the skill icons. Using skills consume a certain amount of the Digimon's DS.
As partner and mercenary Digimon level up, evolution makes them more powerful.
When evolution has occurred, it is easier to win against an enemy as you gain more strength in HP.
Partner Digimon evolve to Champion at Lv.11, Ultimate at Lv.25, Mega at Lv.41. Mercenary Digimon evolves
at the same levels as partner Digimon, but there is an evolution limit depending on the class of DigiEgg.
Evolution can occur until Champion when the class of DigiEgg is General, Ultimate when Advanced,
Mega when Rare.
