Have you noticed that in the V4 and V4.5 instruction manuals there is a little picture of Pochitchi(the dog character)in the Disclipline section? Why is HE there?!? I have seen a few V4 growth and character charts and I'm pretty sure Pochitchi is not a character on V4 and V4.5. So I have some questions, please answer any that you can!

1.Have you seen what I am talking about :huh: ?
2.Is it possible to get Pochitchi on V4 nad V4.5 :o ?
3.Do you think this is a little odd :o ?

Thanks in advance,
Memetchi Dreamer

Yes, I have seen those pictures, and unfortunatley no, he is not obtainable in any version except V2... I beleive that he may be pictured either because of his easy to read facial expression or he may just be a remanent from previous manuals...

Yes, I've realised they've used pictures from previous manuals. Pochitchi is also on the "Shinshu Hakken!! Tamagotchi" or "Tamagotchi Gen2".

i Have noticed that too! but sad to say he is not a charachter on the v4 or v4.5. I wish tamagotchis kept charachters from previous versions in the new versions. it would be so coll!

I'm believe you guys but I just wanna go check my manual for that. BRB. Ok, back. Yes, I see that. I guess it's just easy to read his facial expressions. And he can only be obtained on the P2 and V2.

Ok, thanks for all of your help! I am not new to Tamagotchi, but I thought this Pochitchi thing was something good to post about.

Thanks again ;) !

I do think that is a little odd. Maybe he is one of those characters that need to be diciplined more. Or maybe he looks the best being diciplined. I doubt that it was a random pick though. The first character that comes to mind is definitley not pochitchi

Hehe can't say I understood that at all =S, hey if it increases the post count =P

About the picture, it's the same principle as the way that Mametchi is always the character you see printed in the display of the large "Diagotchi" [new word! =) the diagram Tama'] in the instruction manual, or on the example sticker they put on the screen to show you what it looks like before you purchase [as if no-one knows =P].
Just the same as basically all of the digimon original versions 1-5's instructions 'recycle' some pictures from the first release.
This is most likely due to the fact that there are multiple releases of the same versions [for example the Keitei Akai and the Keitei Hanarutch] which need the same instruction manual but feature different characters, and therefore would not be economical to have multiple instruction versions printed, not to mention would probably take a lot longer.
I agree with the theory about him being and easily readable character, and oh so adorable =P.
Needless to say these are just my current thoughts, any comments welcome ^^ :)

To Uluxlan:what i meant was, that the picture is just a simple example for the intruction, it sounds weird though because people might think of it like it's a tamagotchi that was on the tamagotchi toy. Anyways, i meant him as like an examplesuch as mamechi, memechi, and kupatchi. But i ment both...Also, i hav a question, my mamechi has a baby, and i want 2 turn my mamechi into that tamagotchi that is ur avatar, how, if i can't, then y?

He's a dog, and you discipline dogs.
Teach them stuff like tricks and how to behave.
That's why.

I reckon its possible to get it as like a special character or something for example you have achieved generation 10 or higher thats your toddler or teenager or something like that

But im just throwing out so i'm not getting my hopes up about it

P.S. i havent even gone past generation 2

but you know how later on in 08 you can get a familithci maybe that could be your pet. :) ;) :P :angry: :angry:
