After being teased during a previous episode, the newest promo for Digimon Adventure teases Leomon's debut in the reboot series. When Matt, Sora, and Joe were making their way across the desert earlier in the series they came across a few Digimon who were hoping to head to an area where they would be protected by Leomon.

With Tai and Matt seeking out the rest of the gang, the two of them soon come across Leomon.

The synopsis for Episode 19 continues as such, "Valvemon is transporting something inside, and it is Minotaurmon who takes command of the troops being transported. He dispatches a large number of Troopmon, and attacks Taichi, [Matt], Agumon, and Gabumon. Leomon, Coronamon, and Spadamon show up and save Taichi and co., and escape from the desert with them. Leomon, the leader of the Resistance fighting against Devimon, says that they were trying to steal the cargo being transported by Valvemon. It seems to be something related to the Holy Digimon, but..."
