My favorite Ancestor Tamagotchi has got to be the Ocean- I don't have one, but if I had the money I would definitely buy one! I love them because of how much care they need. I know that most people don't like Oceans because they need so much care; but personally, I love VPets that are needy little buggers :pochitchi: I have a Morino coming my way in about a week and a half, though.

^ Absolutely they do! :( They sound really cool actually. I've never had the chance to play with Digimons myself, but my collection is always growing and perhaps I'll get a couple someday to see how they are. Do you still have yours and break them out every once in a while? ;)

I do still have mine. I'd never get rid of them. :(

One of my v1 Digimons, sadly, is dead. It turns on, but the screen is severely messed up.
My three Pendulums are very worn down, too. I've decided to 'retire' their use recently, since I don't want them to break.

It's too bad, because I really did enjoy playing with them. I took my v1 Digimons everywhere when I first got them.
I guess they were all just loved too much. :pochitchi:;
I'm hoping to buy some new ones some time, but they're really difficult to find.

@Bathory: Osu/Mesu are definitely awesome and yes, there is something special about them, how you can physically link them and see their cool mating dance (rather than the infrared stuff these days, which is pretty cool too).

@sweet.angel: Glad you got to experience the Devil! Do you have one of your own now?

@Boshia: Yeah, even though Oceans are super hard to care for, there's something really satisfying about taking care of the hardest of the hard and succeeding. I don't know if this is in your price range, but there is this one on Ebay currently: http://cgi.ebay.com/...=item35a52c366c. Awesome about the Morino! I'm running one right now and it's pretty neat.

@MintyDreams7: I was the same way with my very first Tamagotchi, took it everywhere, played with it nonstop. I hope you find duplicates of your older pets. I imagine that since they're hard to find that they're also pretty pricey as a result of that?

@LittleChocoWolf: Right! You're getting your Angel soon, I saw you mention that in the other threads. Congratulations, they're pretty awesome! I know you mentioned you've heard things about these awesome vintage Tamagotchis so I was wondering if you've heard about some of these great websites on vintage (including Japanese) Tamagotchis. They've been around forever and are worth browsing:

Yeah, people like to price them on ebay very insanely. Most of the time, they aren't worth the price people are asking. (missing the chain, missing screws, screen scratches, buttons/sound don't work, pixel flare, etc.)
Most of the time, the seller won't ship to Canada. So I'm having a lot of difficulty.

Yeah, that's a bummer about the conditions of some of the more vintage pets. Well, let me know if you ever find something you really like and if they don't ship to Canada, maybe I can help you out! :mellow:

No problem at all regarding the websites! I'm glad you already know about them. :mellow: Yeah, Angelgotchis are definitely something to get excited about.

I haven't played with mine for a while now.

I'd have to say the Angel, it's a very cute version. I love the characters, and the whole concept of the Tamagotchi.


My second favourite would be the P2, it's the normal Tamagotchi. Just taking care of your tama, no more. :)

Pulling out the old Tamagotchis when you haven't played with them for a while is always a great feeling, at least for me. If it's been long enough, it's like everything's new again...almost. :( I will always have a special place in my heart for the P2 since my first one was a P2, no matter how many versions of Tamagotchi come out.

You should get them! There are plenty on Ebay right now. Just type in "Tamagotchi original" or "Tamagotchi 1996 1997 1998" and you'll find them. You'll even find some that are still in the box. Tamagotchi simplicity at its finest. :P

Ohhh, I see. Well, you could always do chores or something, if you and your parents go for that. :D In any case though, when you get another Tamagotchi in a couple of months or so, maybe a P1 or P2 is on your list? They're the cheapest (besides maybe the Mini/Chibi) vintage Tamagotchis out there.

Well, for good reason! Those are all fantastic vintage Tamagotchis. I'd start off with the Angel. First off, they're cheaper than the others you listed and they're relatively low-maintenance, especially compared to the Ocean. I highly recommend getting as many vintage Tamagotchis as you can. They're great! :)
