The fifteenth episode of Bandai’s FUN! DigiCa YouTube series pits hosts Hideyoshi and Cody against each other in an unusually short remote match, using decks made from doubled-up Starter Decks with assorted promotional cards. The match highlights the importance of low-level Digimon to the game—a lack of Level 3s early on results in Hideyoshi struggling as Cody sets up an extremely threatening War Greymon.

The thirteenth episode of Bandai’s FUN! DigiCa YouTube series pits Hideyoshi and Cody against one another in a remote match using decks made from two Gaia Red and two Cocytus Blue decks combined, plus assorted promotional cards. This is their first match with sleeved cards, using the War Greymon and Metal Garurumon sleeves that launched alongside the first Starter Decks. As with the previous episode, this episode was filmed remotely as part of a stay-at-home recommendation from the Japanese government, due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. Spoilers for the match follow after the cut.

Episode 2 of Bandai’s FUN! DigiCa YouTube series displayed the full list of cards included in Starter Deck 1: Gaia Red, including the new Option Card, Giga Destroyer. The deck contains 54 cards rather than the 53 originally announced, including a playset of the deck’s Digitama Card, Koromon.
