The Syakomon are the Digimon partners of the Poi Brothers, the three Chinese DigiDestined boys. When Digimon were appearing all over Earth, the Poi Brothers and their Syakomon engaged a wild Mojyamon in battle. The Syakomon all Digivolved into Octomon, and took down the Mojyamon with their Spurting Ink technique, but Kari and Izzyarrived to stop them from destroying him. After some initial communication problems, Kari, Izzy and the Pois were ready to work together. The eldest Poy Brother and his Syakomon went with them to the China/India border, where the Syakomon became Octomon again, and used his Spurting Ink technique to write a message to the Chinese army, allowing Mina, an Indian DigiDestined girl, to cross the border with the Digimon she had rounded up. The Pois and their Syakomon appeared again when MaloMyotismon was attempting to infect Earth with darkness.
