Digimon Tamers TV series
Takato creates a Digimon called Guilmon. He meets Jianliang who has a Terriermon as a Digimon partner. They have to stop Ruki and partner Renamon that wants to hunt other Digimon for sport (they later make friends with her), and a Digimon called Impmon who starts causing trouble, a secret government program called Hypnos run by Yamato, whose job is to contain Digimon but they keep failing.
Some stronger Digimon called the Deva appear and Takato, Jianliang, and Ruki work together to combat them. Hirokazu and Kenta join the group. Juri gets a Digimon partner called Leomon.
The Devas capture Calumon and take him to the Digital World after wrecking the Hypnos and much of the city. The Tamers go to the Digital World. After roughing it they get separated with Takato, Jianliang, and Juri in one group and Ruki, Hirokazu, and Kenta on the other team.
The latter team meets with Ryo. Jianliang's little sister Shaochung also ends up in the Digital World and befriends a Deva.
Impmon arrives in the Digital World too and makes a patch with the Deva who evolve him to Beelzebumon. Beelzebumon eventually kills Juri's Leomon causing her to go into a depression and Takato gets annoyed and this causes Guilmon to evolve into Megidramon who goes on a rampage. This risks the Digital World being destroyed. Beelzebumon eventually begins to beat Megidramon. Then Takato does a proper evolution and fuses with Guilmon to become Dukemon and defeats Beelzebumon. Dukemon was about to execute Beelzebumon but Juri stops him saying she didn't want anyone else to die.
Beelzebumon goes off and lets some other Digimon fight him up so he can devolve back to Impmon.
The rest go to confront the Devas leader Zhuqiaomon, who is one of the Four Holy Beasts, but he doesn't listen and attacks them. Another member of the Four Holy Beasts, Qinglongmon, appears and stops the fight because they need to be ready to fight the D-Reaper. It is revealed that the Digimon's power to evolve was made into Calumon. They release Calumon's energy.
The Four Holy Beasts send the Tamers back home feeling that they don't need them anymore. But Juri had been switched out with a fake at some point by the D-Reaper.
But part of the D-Reaper comes to the real world. It takes the combined efforts of the Tamers, Hypnos, and the Four Holy Beasts to bring it down and save the real Juri.
