After rebooting he finds that Wargreymon and Metalgarurumon were badly damaged but they decided to go after Diablomon but he has reproduced into millions of copies of himself. Oh, and he decided to hack the Pentagon and launched a nuke at them. Only one Diablomon has the 'clock' that needs to be destroyed to stop the nuke.
All the Diablomon mess up Wargreymon and Metalgarurumon even more. This is made worse because Diablomon had been sending videos of the fight to everyone and people all over the world spammed their computers making them lag.

Digimon Adventure 02 TV series
In this series, Digimon Kaiser is introduced alongside Wormmon and is able to control Digimon thanks to Evil Rings he allegedly invented. Taichi arrives in the Digital World but quickly realizes that he and the rest of the original Chosen Children are not going to be able to help because the Digimon Kaiser also put up Dark Towers that prevent their Digimon from evolving.
Daisuke, Miyako, and Iori are summonded who have a new type of Digivice called the D-3. Takeru and Hikari also receive new Digivices. They are able to bypass the Dark Towers by using an alternate kind of evolution called Armor Evolution that uses Digimentals.
They take on the Digimon Kaiser's forces and liberate areas by demolishing his Dark Towers. During this time is revealed that the Digimon Kaiser is Ken, a child prodigy they had seen on TV. Ken eventually captures Taichi's Agumon and uses an improved version of the Evil Rings, the Evil Spiral, to control him and evolve him into a virus Metalgreymon.
Daisuke at first is hesitant to attack a friend but eventually realizes he has to fight Agumon to save him. After Agumon is rescued, Ken retreats.
Ken then decided to combine a lot of different Digimon data together to create Chimairamon. But Chimairamon cannot be controlled and threatened Ken's life too. During the battle, Daisuke awakens the Digimental of Miracles to evolve his Digimon to Magnamon. This skill isn't enough and Wormmon has to sacrifice himself to stop Chimairamon.
With his ultimate plan ruined Ken is defeated. He also realizes that the Digital World is real.
After an emotional episode, Ken goes back to the Digital World to find Wormmon had been reborn.
Daisuke and the others are start helping to rebuild the Digital World. They keep getting attacked by rouge Digimon. They see Ken kill it and are concerned that Ken is still evil.
They soon find out that these Digimon are not real but were created from Dark Towers by a peculiar woman. Ken's former base has a meltdown and is about to explode and will badly damage the Digital World. Ken tries to go on a suicide mission but Daisuke stops him. Their Digimon are able to fuse into Paildramon.
The woman turns out to be a Digimon called Archnemon. They eventually cornered her but her hopeless suitor Mummymon arrived and saved her. Needless to say, Archnemon was pretty upset about this and merges 100 Dark Towers to create Blackwargreymon. Blackwargreymon easily overpowers Paildramon but then decides he has no reason to follow Archnemon and leaves to find his 'ultimate rival'.
Archnemon and Mummymon then decide to destroy the Holy Stones that provide balance to the Digital World. When one is damaged Blackwargreymon goes nuts and decides to destroy all the Holy Stones because when one is destroyed, and an image of a dragon appears who he believes to be his rival.
The Chosen Children worked to try and stop Blackwargreymon but are constantly defeated. When there is only one Holy Stone left the dragon appears and identifies himself as Qinglongmon, one of the Four Holy Beasts. He restores the damage to the Digital World and Blackwargreymon leaves realizing that Qinglongmon is not his rival.
Archnemon and Mummymon boss is revealed to be a man named Yukio Oikawa. Oikawa opens a bunch of portals between the real and Digital Worlds causing wild Digimon and Dark Towers to appear in the real world. Gennai appears and gives the first eight Chosen Children's ability to evolve back and gives Paildramon to power to become Imperialdramon.
Imperialdramon takes both groups of Chosen Children around the world so they can destroy the Dark Towers and return the lost Digimon. But this was Oikawa's play to distract them so he could recruit several children with promises to make then as smart and strong as Ken was.
Groups of Digimon called the Demon Corps arrives lead by Demon himself. They aim is to capture Ken and take the Dark Seed that had been implanted in him causing him to become the Digimon Kaiser. The Chosen Children defeat them but Oikawa captures Ken and copies his Dark Seed planting copies of it in the children he had recruited.
Blackwargreymon goes to the real world too and confronts Oikawa, Archnemon, and Mummymon about his creation. Oikawa reveals that he created Archnemon and Mummymon from his own DNA mixed with Digimon code. This kinda makes the thing about Mummymon liking Archnemon kind of gross.
But Taichi arrives knowing that they need Oikawa alive to remove the Dark Seeds. Wargreymon and Imperialdramon defeat Blackwargreymon and he joined them to stop Oikawa. When they confront Oikawa a dark force within him emerges and fatally wounds Blackwargreymon. Blackwargreymon uses the last of his strength to close the gate between Hikarigaoka and the Digital World.
Unaware of the portal being closed Oikawa gathered all the kids he had recruited and tried to open the portal. Instead of going to the Digital World they are taken to some strange "World of Dreams". The force within Oikawa is revealed to be Vamdemon's spirit. It leaves Oikawa fatally wounding him and becomes Belialvamdemon.
Belialvamdemon slaughters Archnemon and Mummymon so he could use his mental powers to install fear into the Chosen Children. But Daisuke was not affected. Belialvamdemon then uses his Mind Illusion attack to put them into a dream where they dream that their world was their own idealization of perfection. Once again Daisuke and his Digimon is able to resist and pulled the others out of the illusion too.
The Chosen Children learn that in this world they can evolve their Digimon partners into multiple forms at one and overwhelm Belialvamdemon. But then Belialvamdemon is blasted through the "wall" of the World of Dreams and ends up back in the Digital World. He adsorbed the dark energy there and grows giant. Belialvamdemon overpowers the Chosen Children but then more Chosen Children from all over the world appear and use the lights of their Digivices the hold Belialvamdemon in place.
Belialvamdemon attempts to use the despair in the hearts of the children Oikawa had recruited to power himself back up but this backfires when the Chosen Children give them a pep talk and their hope causes Belialvamdemon's body to break apart. Vamdemon's spirit rose again swearing revenge but all the Chosen Children used the lights of their Digivice to power up Imperialdramon who used his Giga Death attack to destroy Vamdemon's spirit. At least he wasn't hit in the crotch this time.
Oikawa uses the last of his life force to restore the Digital World.
