When I went to tamagotchi.com, there was a poll and this is what it was like:

Round 6: who is your favorite tamagotchi?

Nikatchi

Hinatchi

Debatchi

Dorotchi

Wooltchi!!!

Did Bandai change Urutchi's name? :unsure: :P :o

Don't know if Bandai would change the name of a tama, while there are still a few tamas without names, but it is possible.

:P :unsure: :o :P :lol: ;) ;) :D

Well,Woolchi and Uruchi is actually exactly the same thing...For this you must have some Japanese knowledge though ;) Well,Uru is the way you can read the Japanese spelling in Katakana for the English word wool, so I guess people who call it Urutchi,just read it as Uru, where else those who spell it as Woolchi wort of got the idea that it was the Japanese way of spelling the English Wool. Get it? :D

It is just the US spelling. Like Propellertchi and puroperatchi. ;) Not a fat difference, just so you understand it better I guess. :D

No, his name is Hanatchi, not Wooltchi (sorry)..

The names Urutchi and Wooltchi refer to the same sheep looking character.
It's just that BanDai sometimes gives some of the characters more 'Anglicised' names for the Western market:
Androtchi vs Robotchi is another example.
Best, etc.
