These screenshots highlight a new character named Saki Kimijima and her Digimon partner Floramon.
According to translations found on Gemastu, Saki is described as a middle schooler who is honest and tends to go with the flow. She is partnered Floramon, who is a rookie stage plant-like Digimon which originally appeared in the Digimon anime's first season which aired on television in 1999.
Other Digimon that appear in the screenshots includes Betamon, Labramon, Flacomon and, Agumon., All of which happen to be rookie Digimon like Floramon.
