So I got a tama a few days ago. He had been started and hatched. He remained on the name screen for 25 days until I opened and named him. He is a kuchipachi now and he is 30. The matchmaker won't come for him. Is it because of his age? Someone please help. I don't want this little historic tama to die. I want him to have babies.

Hm, it sounds like it might be a p1, a 1997 tamagotchi.

Since I don't know any other tamagotchi that lets an adult turn 30 and not be an oldie.

 

The originals can not have babies.

I don't think it's a P1, there's no name screen option. Hm, I think somewhere I heard that a V4 was left on the name screen and the tama aged like that, but I can't find the source material so don't quote me on that! Can you take pictures of the tama? How long has he been a Kuchipachi for? I believe most tamas take 72 (or was it 48? Help me out guys, I"m having a brain fart!) hours before the matchmaker will arrive.

I know Bathory has made his point in saying that it probably isn't a P1, but I'd still like to add onto this reply

 

If it were a P1, the Tamagotchi would live until the battery died (at which point, data would be lost)

so it wouldn't die of old age

 

Oh, I was mistaken. They die because they become increasingly difficult to care for, but I digress.

(Binary made an exemplary post detailing this here)

This is a known glitch, it happened to me on a v3. I also posted a topic on here, and it was solved, if you would like to read it the link is http://www.tamatalk....r/#entry3240866 When you leave it on the name screen it will age indefinitely. Wait until your Kuchipatchi is about 32, and then the matchmaker should come for you. I think you're supposed to wait 72 hours after it turns into an adult, which is usually when it's about 7 years old that the matchmaker starts to come. Doing the math, if it was 25 when it was born, it should be 32 when the matchmaker comes. Good luck!
