In a far away land where Monsters rule...
Opens a new chapter of adventure and fun...


In the popular “Monster Rancher” competition, a young boy named Genki wins the final and becomes the champion.
One day after school, Genki finds a “Monster Rancher 200X” CD-ROM delivered to his home. It is the grand prize he has won in the “Monster Rancher” competition. Genki begins to play the new game and at the very moment he tries to generate a monster, he finds himself transported into the “Monster Rancher” world.
In the “Monster Rancher” world, a girl named Holly and an eye-ball shaped monster Suezo are in the midst of escaping from the evil monsters that are pursuing them. All of a sudden, Genki appears in front of Holly and Suezo. Not sure what happened, Genki, Holly and Suezo, escape together from the grasp of these evil monsters.
Soon Genki realizes that he is in the “Monster Rancher” world. He is thrilled and excited. On the other hand, Holly is sad as she has learned that the unidentified monster named Moo has conquered the world and is plotting to turn all monsters into evil monsters. Only the Phoenix, which is sleeping in a special “Disc,” can bring them back to good. Holly, determined to find this Phoenix, sets out on a mission in search of the “Disc”.
Then, Holly discovers that Genki has a “Monster Rancher” CD-ROM in his possession and becomes very excited. This could very well be the “Disc” of the Phoenix! They arrive at the altar of the shrine where the monsters are generated. They set down the CD-ROM and watch with amazement the birth of... a cute monster name Mocchi.
Much to their dismay, the evil monster troops capture Genki, Holly and Suezo. . But when they attempt to catch Mocchi, he cries out so loud ? that all the monsters scatter.
Genki quickly uses his roller blades to rescue Holly, Suezo and Mocchi.
Their exciting and adventurous journey in search of the Phoenix “Disc” has begun!
