As you progress Digimon Survive’s story, you also unlock additional Digimon via the characters that you meet. These story Digimon have more capabilities than the “Free Digimon”. If you want more powerful Digimon, continue with the story and see what you can unlock!

Talk To Digimon During Battles

Digimon Survive How to recruit Digimon

Battles are where you can get “Free Digimon”. These Digimon are deemed “free” because they don’t have partners like the protagonist. To get them, use the “Talk” option while controlling a main Digimon like Agumon. Get at least 3 of the bars filled to initiate a conversation and invite them to your team. Note that this only works for Free Battles and not story battles!

Digimon Survive Retry

A good way to ensure that you get the Digimon that you want is to restart battles if you fail the conversation. Use this to your advantage. This is also easier if there are two Digimons of the same kind in the field as you do not risk having one run away to end the fight.
