Anyway, so I got home. It was a pink v3. I studied it at my desk, and it had an unusually long antenna. It also did not say Tamagotchi Connection. It had a Mametchi and another character. So I tried to open in. The back screw was very mangled and crushed, so I had to pry it open, resulting in it breaking.
The batteries were in the Tamagotchi, but there was 2, and they looked like LR44s. I took the first one out, then the second.
The circuits were brown! I unscrewed the back-back and pryed off the circuit board (that cracked too). The back of the board was the usual green.
Is this a fake? Because after that I wasn't sure if I had just destroyed some rare v3! D:

Most of the Ancestor models take LR44 batteries ( Angelgotchi, Santagotchi / Santaclautchi, Mothra, Morino, ect. ).
I would say it is most likely fake if it looked very different from regular versions and I don't ever remember Tamagotchi's taking LR44 batteries, only those watch ones.
The newer models ( with the exception of the TMGC + C and the iD ) take 3V-CR2032 batteries.
If you think it may have been a "rare" Tamagotchi, could you maybe give us a picture? Visuals always help.
It doesn't sound wholly authentic judging by your description... and to my knowledge there is no rare V3, let alone a rare pink design for it.

From Monchi's description it did sound like an ancestor / original / vintage. The ancestors don't have antennas though.
It was probably an original, you know, the ones from 1997
The first Tamagotchi to have an antenna was the Japanese KeiTai, released in winter of 2004. The first English language Tamagotchi with an antenna was the V3, release on February 18, 2006.
