Those who purchase Digimon Survive within this first month get an extra, trainable monster called Guilmon. The Digimon fanbase should drool over Guilmon as it is a Fire Virus type with powerful abilities and attacks.

The thing is, Guilmon isn't available right as you launch the game. Instead, players will need to complete the Equipment tutorial at the end of the game's prologue.

This should take roughly one hour or a bit more. After this, the final step in unlocking Guilmon early in Digimon Survive is to open the main menu and select "Receive Bonus". After this, Guilmon (level 1) will be added to your team.
