Well now. It's been over a week now. I've been out of the loop (as are you!) so let's get cracking! Lots have happened since! There is going to be quite a bit, so please bear with me. You might notice a few words that have been hyperlinked - those are old photos that I've taken, but are certainly relevant to this log today!
I decided to tab up my V5. I felt that it was time for a small hiatus! I had been meaning to run my OsuMesu pair once more, and I guess that prompted me to put Bakutchi and Ichigotchi on pause. Last time I did not log this experience - instead I simply posted pictures on Tumblr.
The first time around, I managed to get both Pyonchitchi and Pyonkotchi on my first try. They both had Tsubutchi shortly after they became adults, who grew to become Hyunutchi, before finally becoming Hikotchi and UFOtchi. Unfortunately because these two were on pause so much, I ultimately ended up tabbing them - a fate that ends up to at least 70% of my Tamagotchis! (oops?)
Shortly afterwards I left my V5 in its slumber, I pulled out the tabs out of my OsuMestchi with screwdriver in hand expecting to put in batteries, until I heard a beep. To my surprise, I had left my batteries in the Tamagotchis - normally I do not do this in fear for battery corrosion.
After setting the time, the eggs* hatched shortly afterwards. Immediately they hatched into Kuritchi. These guys look like little poops! The baby stage is like every other - only lasting for an hour, constantly beeping for attention. I must say that I am quite found of the flag game - it reminds me of the one on the V3/V4, which happened to be my favourite!
*This is a picture of my entire OsuMesutchi collection. I'm running the white pair right now! Yes, they are a little bit faded... but that's how I got them for a bit cheaper!
Not before long, they transformed into MohiTamatchi! They called for discipline a few times during this stage - it wasn't long before the bar was filled all the way. These guys are one of my favourite toddler Tamagotchis. To me, they seem so simple, but they're really not!
About two days passed and they became the good teens - Obotchi and Ojotchi! One thing about these Tamagotchis is that growth is very slow. I guess I'm a bit impatient, but I quickly lost interest because of this!
I decided that I would neglect these two just to see what sort of characters I would get. Part of me was aiming for Kikotchi/Kiwitchi, but I just wanted a different set of characters. What I got was a total surprise to me. I took great care of Ojotchi, but only cared to discipline her once. Obotchi on the other hand was neglected quite a bit, but I disciplined him up to 50%.
At age 5, they finally transformed into the adults. I ended up getting these little critters here:
Bunbutchi and Kankotchi!
These characters were a complete surprise. I guess discipline really had an impact on a Tamagotchis growth! The animations were quite cute. Here a few:
I did not keep these guys for long. I ended up mating these two a day later! Mating was a bit difficult because I did not hold these two together hard enough during their courting. It took me about three tries before they were successful with children!
Out popped a Teletchi! I decided to let these guys run for about two days before tabbing them. I'm quite baffled as to how long the next baby stage lasts - after the parents leave (about 48-72? hours later), the babies do not transform into the toddler stage until about a day has passed, if I recall correctly. Luckily the babies are not needy, but it's still quite strange staring at screens without the attention icon harassing you every five minutes!
About a month ago, I also won a Yuki Penguin! I believe I bid on this virtual pet for about $8, not expecting to win. I had bid about few days in advance, yet no one outbid my measly $8.00 bill! It only arrived two days ago. Naturally, I hatched an egg as soon as I got home!
I had a Dinkie Dino when I was a toddler so it was really nice to hear all the jingles! They are a bit needier than I remember - it's a bit annoying when they become sick and all their stats become empty! What I do love is the fact that they gain happiness even if they lose the game.
I have been feeding my penguin fish - I wonder what character I'll get?
I forgot to mention that I FINALLY bought a Digimon on eBay. Watching Season 1 on Netflix certainly did not aid my self-control, but luckily I got a NIB 1997 Digimon (V1) for $60. Quite the deal, I'd say! I bought it from an American seller too, so hopefully it'll be here within the next week or two! I just hope I get a nice taste of the Yuki Penguin before he gets here, because otherwise my attention will focus solely on my Digimon!
And so for now, that is all! See you soon!
