Thanks Pauly! It worked out well didn't it? One vintage, one normal, and one modern release.
I got the chance to read up a little more on the Devilgotchi. I researched both group hatches and logs, mainly finding out about the very long life span. I believe it was multiple days between each stage and nearly a week before getting a special character. So, I'll have plenty of time to get used to this little guy then.
One of the first events I had with Deviltchi today was his attention call. The screen flashes black, whilst the attention light turns on. I also want to note how loud the sound is, making it almost impossible to miss a call.
Later that day, I saw a poo on the screen. The cycle must be different from more modern releases because he only went twice from memory.
By the end of the day, I managed to get his DP meter (kind of like a fluctuating training bar) down to 50. This was also achieved by choosing the 'handshake' icon when he calls. This happens every few hours.
Today was the first day of December, and my devilgotchi spent the morning at home with a wound back clock whilst I was at school. He seems to be aging normally so I hope tampering with the clock doesn't stunt his growth.
I spent the afternoon answering his calls.This allowed me to bring his DP all the way down to 15, which I was quite proud of.
Something I learnt the hard way on the first night however, is that every so often whilst sleeping, the tamagotchi beeps to life and bats fly across the screen. I had never heard of anything like this before with a tamagotchi so it amazed and annoyed me at the same time. He is now sleeping with his sound off.
Thanks for reading, 'till next time.
