The (European) D-Power is another Pedometer Digivice. Progressing through the areas requires you to take "steps" which are counted from a pendulum inside the toy. Keep it attached to your belt and as you walk (or shake it manually) the counter will decrease leading you to the end of the area.
The information here is for the Version 1. There are two more versions but these are very rare. Note that some things may be different.
Set-Up and Game Play:
Select your partner Digimon, then choose a map location to attempt first. Then you can walk it by shaking.
Repeatedly pressing the Down button displays the distance remaining on the current map location, the total number of steps taken, your D-Energy, and your battle record. The Up button is generally "Cancel". The options can be scrolled through by pressing the Left and Right buttons, and selected with the Down button.
The D-Power requires card slashing during battle. When you select a Battle Card or D-Volve Card, you have to apply the physical card in the correct way to make it work. The contacts are very tight, so fortunately it is not necessary to force the card all the way through. A credit card works fine if you just press it against the switch on one side and hold it for the right time.
On the D-Power there is more than one possible event at the end a map location. The usual boss can appear, but for example, there can also be a Card Shop where you purchase Battle Cards using your D-Energy. And somewhere in the first level (of Version 1) you have to rescue Calumon from Impmon, and he then gives you the first D-Volve Card. Each level has the same four events every time, but they are in different locations on each game, so you have to guess. If you find the boss before the first D-Volve Card, it is necessary to leave that level and try another.
In addition to random battles when walking, you can meet the card seller. He shows you several Battle Cards and allows you to choose one to buy. You can also find the other two partner Digimon without having to do anything.
