musta lintu32, thanks for the reminder. I just remembered that I forgot to post something from yesterday:
New characters for Tama-Go can purchase and wear clothes on TamaTown.

It took a while, but eventually costume 4 for Violetchi appeared.

---------------------------------------------


Here's my Violetchi.

At about 9:07 AM she made a happy sound, but I couldn't figure out why.

At 11:26 AM she beeped for attention, and the attention icon was lit, but when I tried to check her stats, the attention icon turned off and I couldn't find any reason why it would have been on.


This morning Violetchi and I had fun playing the Donut Shop game in Swirly Sweet City.


Here's a close-up-to-the-screen photo of Violetchi.

Although some people have lamented that the Tama-Go doesn't have a full-color back-lit screen, I have found a benefit to its b&w reflective screen - there's no problem seeing it in full sunshine.

Over the past few hours I've discovered and confirmed a couple of interesting things.

1. Meal and Snack menus allow only one instance of any particular type of food, and you can't have more than 3 servings of it in inventory.

For example, if your Meal menu contains the following:
Pork and Beans
1 Cereal
1 Hot Dog

After you go to the Shop and purchase Hot Dogs, your Meal inventory will contain:
Pork and Beans
1 Cereal
3 Hot Dog

2. I hope you're seated... (no pun intended...) Adult Tama-Go characters can be toilet trained. For the past few hours I've suspected this was the case, since I haven't needed to clean up after her at all today (and she's been awake for 9 hours now.) But now I've confirmed it; I've actually seen it and managed to grab photos. After doing the pee-pee wiggle dance for what seemed like about 30 seconds, she sat on the toilet automatically! When she was done, she made a happy sound - the same sound I heard at about 9:07 this morning.

FINALLY - after all these years BanDai actually get around to programming toilet training into their VPs

Wow, toilet training. xD Great convenience.
I probably won't be bringing that carry case to school. ;) I'll just try to keep it in a pocket. :)

EDIT: Emoticon fail.

I was unable to tend to my Tama-Go from about 6:30 PM until after 9:00 PM tonight. When I checked, a few minutes after 9 o'clock, I found Violetchi was already asleep and the lights were already off. I suspect the auto-lights-off is a benefit of having a high training level. (Or maybe all adult characters do this?)

current stats: 3 yr, 25 lb, 1G, Hungry 4, Happy 4, Train 15 (full), Friendship 5 (or maybe 4 3/4?)

It's really kind of strange how Bandai eventually makes products that fulfill the myths that circulated around earlier Tamagotchis. Maybe they feel some of those myths were popular because they represented features people really wanted. For example:

1. You can get twins / triplets. No you can't. But then they introduce the V5, which allows you to raise up to three characters at a time.

2. You can potty train them. No you can't. But then Bandai introduces the Tama-Go, which does allow you to potty train your character.

3. You can influence the gender of the baby. No you can't. But then they introduce ... next years model?

Well, from my past experience... Seeing that the Tama-Go is made in the style of the Tamagotchi+Color, then yes, you can fit it in your pocket.

But remember, if you plan on keeping its screen scratch-free... Try sticking it in a plastic Zip-lock bag. Binary came up with the idea ages ago, and it works fine for me. ^_^

Well... it depends on how big your pocket is. I wouldn't want to have to carry it around in my pants pocket, but it fits easily in my jacket pocket. A Tama-Go is a bit taller than, but not quite as big around as a tennis ball.

You read the entire quick guide? I just finally realized on the attention icon: Select this to communicate with your Tama Character.

Violetchi is asleep so I can't try it right now, but I don't recall having ever been able to select that icon. Next time it lights up, I'll try to select it.

July 4
Violetchi woke at 7:30 AM this morning
She's now 4 "years" old.

4:30 PM beeped for attention. As soon as I pressed a button, the attention icon turned off. (She beeped like this earlier today, but I don't remember the exact time.)

5:07 PM saw her automatically going to the toilet again.

After feeding her 4 different meals to fill her Hungry hearts, I noticed that she had gained only 5 lbs. So, it seems some meals cause her to gain only 1 lb.


Played the built-in games to bring her weight back down and fill her Happy and Friendship hearts. The above photo shows part of the Congratulations-You've-Won animation that plays when you ace a game.


6:30 PM, in the bath


7:45 PM, brushing her teeth

8:45 PM, bed time

Note: There was no sign of a matchmaker option yet. She must be still too young.

I don't think there HAS been a certain date yet. I think as far as people know is that they are coming out in July or August.
I can't wait to get one!!!

Question moi has.

Do you know how many pets there are on the Tama-Go?
What are the pets functions on the toy?
Do pets do anything on Tamatown?
Are there any secret characters like on the Music Star?
Is the thickness of the Tama-Go closer to a tennis ball or a chicken egg?

Thanks. :pochitchi:

Sorry, I don't know. Bandai hasn't said anything to me about it.

As far as I know, there are no pets on the Tama-Go itself, they're available only on TamaTown.
On TamaTown, the pets (Hamster, Cat, Bird, Dog) stay close to where you put them in your apartment, and go through an animation cycle. Example: the hamster cleans his ears and whiskers, sits up for a while, takes a few steps to the side, sits up for a while, goes back to where he started.
I think the only secret characters are Oyajitch and Grippatchi - the male and female children of oldies (Ojitchi & Otokitchi.)
The Tama-Go is closer to a tennis ball than a chicken egg (unless they're larger in your part of the world than we get here.)

July 5. Violetchi woke at 7:30 AM. She's now age 5.


While I was checking the shop, I noticed two new wallpapers. The one on the left was priced at 350000 GP, and the one on the right was 120000 GP.


I upgraded Violetchi's wallpaper. (After transfering lots-o'-points from my TamaTown account.)

10:35 AM She made a happy beep. The attention icon turned off as soon as I pressed a button. I suspect this was an "I'm so happy that I've gone potty all by myself" beep.

1:30 PM She beeped for attention. I'm not sure why. Perhaps she was just checking that I was still around. The attention icon turned off as soon as I pressed a button.

1:55 PM Another happy beep. I checked her stats. She was down to 1 Hungry Heart.
Mega Pizza = +2 Hungry Hearts, +0 Happy Hearts, +3 lbs
Now Hungry hearts = 3, weight = 28 lbs
Mega Pizza = +2 Hungry Hearts, +0 Happy Hearts, +3 lbs
Now Hungry hearts = 5, weight = 31 lbs

At about 4:22 PM, I noticed she was down to only 1 Happy heart.
Hungry 4, Happy 1, 31 lbs
Deluxe Pudding = +0 Hungry Hearts, +1 Happy Hearts, +1 lbs
Hungry 4, Happy 2, 32 lbs
Yogurt = +0 Hungry Hearts, +3 (or more?) Happy Hearts, +2 lbs
Hungry 4, Happy 5, 34 lbs

4:30 PM Another beep for attention. Again, the attention icon turned off as soon as I pressed a button.

About 5 PM her stats were:
Hungry 4, Happy 5, 34 lbs

Played and won a game of Long Jumper. -4 lbs, +1000 GP
Hungry 4, Happy 5 (or more?), 30 lbs

Played and won a game of Long Jumper. -4 lbs, +1000 GP
Hungry 4, Happy 5 (or more?), 26 lbs

At 5:15 PM, she made a happy beep.

About 8 PM:
Hungry 2, Happy, 4, 25 lbs
Tempura = +1 Hungry Hearts, +0 Happy Hearts, +1 lbs
Hungry 3, Happy, 4, 26 lbs
Sushi = +1 Hungry Hearts, +0 Happy Hearts, +1 lbs
Hungry 4, Happy, 4, 27 lbs
Beef Bowl = +1 (or more) Hungry Hearts, +0 Happy Hearts, +2 lbs
Hungry 5 (or more), Happy, 4, 29 lbs

Played and won a game of Long Jumper. -4 lbs, +1000 GP, +1 (or more) Happy Hearts
Hungry 5 (or more), Happy 5 (or more?), 25 lbs, Friendship

8:15 PM bed time. Hmmm. Earlier than last night. I'm not sure why.

Oops. At about 8:20 I checked her stats. Somehow this woke her up. Maybe there's a bed-time time window. Something like: if you don't press a button for a few minutes during this period, she'll go to bed, but will wake up again if you disturb her.

8:45 PM bed time again

Note: There was no sign of a matchmaker option yet. She must be still too young.
