At that time, you won’t be able to catch Gotsumon. The second time you will encounter him is after Aoi disappears during one part of the story. After Aoi disappears, several restricted areas of the game will now be available to you.

There will be lots of areas and one of those areas is Free Battle, in that area, you will be able to face different Digimon in free battles. In one of those battles, you will face Gotsumon, where you can befriend him.

Unlike Pokémon, you don’t have to fight Digimon to catch them. All you have to do is to engage in a conversation with them and give them correct answers. You can fight them as well but Digimon is more about brains and less about brawn.

Gotsumon is a bit of a prankster and likes to joke around as well but is not afraid to throw a punch when needed. If you want to catch Gotsumon, you will need to engage in a conversation during your second encounter.
