Very good information, but I think you've forgotten to give Skillful Abbot credit for borrowing his topic on the family list (mamezoku,memezoku,kuchizoku) and the on how to get the secret characters.

Ra,

Actually, I had already done:

...Tensaitchi, NonBiritchi and Makikotchi (I think)
I read soemwhere (Skillful Abbott's page) that doing certain things you could get a secre character...


And as for the mamezoku, memezoku etc, I figured that out myself by mating my Entamas via Matchmaker because I coudlnt remember the exact combination.

Hmmm?

I was referring to the 'names'. I'm positive you don't speak Japanese, so you couldn't possibly have figured out how to pronounce the family names. Hence the logical conclusion you've borrowed it from Skillful Abbot. It's only fair if you give him a line of credit at the bottom of your post. Perhaps even a link to his website. We wouldn't want to do plaigerism now, would we?

Ra,

Thankyou -Ra-,
However, as much as I'm sure you care about giving credit, Spiffy is very much gifted in Japanese, and worked out all the names herself, I checked them while we were on MSN. Of course, we did have a little help from a translator.

As for the link.. I'm afraid advertising is banned on TamaTalk...

So, thankyou for your concern, but there is no need for any legal action :D

Actually, no she didn't. She's told me before she looked at them from SA's page. But here she claims otherwise. Also my only intent was for her to practice what she preaches. She'll know what I'm talking about *wink* Oh and, my question wasn't directed towards you anyway in the first place.

Well, as I receive a large amount of Personal Messages asking for entama tricks, I decided I'd make one big topicabout it.
Feel free to add your comments/tips

First of all, What is an Entama AKA Cho Jinsei Enjoy
All Tamagotchis come from Japan, and they seem to get better versions than Americnas and Europeans (sigh). The Entama is their latest "version". It does not have connectivity to mobiles like past Jaapnese Tamagotchis, but does have connectivity to the webiste e-tamago. This Tamagotchi has many new features because Cho Jinsei Enjoy means something like Enjoy Life to the Full in Japanese
How do I start it up?
Like all Tamagotchis, after eading the instrucitons (for Japanese readers) and looking at soem images, we feel nervous, and pull the fine plastic protection off the screen and edge the tab out of its gap. We shall be surprised by the typical beep (the Tamagotchi has started!) We shall soon see a cute egg (different from previous versions, with its own new design) bobbing up and down. The egg shall not hatch till we input our information.
Like always, we are asked to set DATE and TIME. We scroll adn control the time the same as any other Tamagotchi. Then, we put in our Birthday date. After checking that all fields are correct, we shall wait for the egg to hatch.
After waiitng for a while, the egg will slowly bob faster and faster till it shakes. Then it shall hatch, and we'll be able to see our new character.
It can be boy/girl and form part of one of the following families Mamezoku(Intelligence)/Memezoku(style)/Kuchizoku(Kindness). The characetr you get on first hatch shall be random. Then you will have to seletc a name. The name display is useful, because i displays the gender ♂ or ♀. For more help on how to name your tamagotchi (it comes up in Japanese characters) I suggest you visit peppersoup/Tamasquare After all these Japanese characters there is a large amount of symbols like hearts, suns, full stops, happy faces, etc... So-make sure you dont make a mistake naming it, or its a load of letters to scroll through ;)
Getting started-how to care for
First icon-Status
Accessing the first icon, we shall be able to see the Entamas status.
Screen 1: Hunger and Happiness
Screen 2: GUT points we have. The pencil indicates intelligence points, the star style points and the flower kindness
Screen 3: Species, Preschool/School/Job and Job level (rating from 1 to 3 stars) and number of Gotchi points. The maximum amount of Gotchipoints seems to be 99,999GP
Screen 4: Age(each time you put it to sleep and wake it up again it becomes a year older. This does not affect evolution times though), Weight(the weight of entamas seem to be lower than that of V1, babies and toddlers weigh the same, so teens weigh what toddlers weigh adn adults what teens weigh) and Name.
Screen 5: Gender (written in japanese and with corresponding symbol) and generation
Second icon-Food
Option 1: Meal, first, default meals are listed (roll and sandwich), afetr that meals youve bought/won appear. the samll number at the bottom indicates the amount of that type of food you have.
Option 2: Snack. First, the default snacks are listed (bananas and ice cream) and then the ones you've bought/won
Option 3: Cooking items. You can buy cooking items to cook. At the top they have the family they are for and at the bottom the amount you have. What you do is you mix two inngredients from your Tamagotchi group and you shall obtain something to eat. If you use the incorrect ingredients it shall explode. I am still to try this out though. :D
Third option-Loo
Pretty straight forward, when stinklines appear on your Tamagotchi, get to this option quick. The potty seems to be a duck with a mouth and the grown up loo actually has a mouth. XD A nice feature is it beeps whenever it finishes pooping, so althugh you missed catching it, you can flush it away fatser (insyead of continuously checking on your entama)
Fourth option-games
There are three games your entama can play to earn gotchipoints and GUT points.I also noticed, the maximum points you can get from them is 500 and you can go out of the game at any time by pressing c. Whatever you won wont be saved tilll it gets to the point receiving screen. :o
Card Game: This brings up IQ points. I dont know how to explain how this game works, but what you do is you select two cards after lettign them flash the same amount of times... Then they shall turn round and reveal tamagotchi characters. If they match, you win and go to the next "round". Each time you get a correct match, at the top of the screen a number is displayed to indicate how many correct matches you got.
Clothes game: This brings up Style points. It is very easy, you have to make the clothes rack catch the clothes and avoid the poos. You have to catch 100 clothes (you catch garment 99 twice). Then you win. If you dont catch a garment or you catch a poo, the game will end and i will show the progres you made (clothes on a rack).
Hammer Game: I dislike this game. XD I always lose!! You have to press a/b button to make the hammer push out a block t the right level. You get rid of thirty blocks and save the Shiropuchitchi thats crying on the top... If you knock the wrong brick, the tower will fall down and so will the baby
Fifth Option-connecting
I'm at a loss with this game. The first option is Entamas, but I dont get how it works because I do not have annother entama (so dont ask me-lol)
Then there ae other options, which will connect to Keitai, AKAI, Deka (I think) and PC.
How to connect to PC: Scroll down the list till you get to PC: First option, the Tama shall hop off the screen and give you a code. Type this code into e-tamago.com and youll access Tamagotchi Town Japan... Each section thats alight does different things... But I cnat be bothered to list them now. XD
The second PC option is for using tickets you bought. I havent tried this out yet anyway...
Check out this topic for passwords for certain characters and going to certain towns. :o You can contribute too
Sixth option-Mail
Welll, praise and tiem out was substitued by this new icon seeing the training now revolved around GUT points...
The first option is nespaper, and the sectond is mail (or was it the other way round!?!?). Anyway, every so often, Nazotchi pops in a letter into a post box (with a mouth!) and the icon flashes. Go to it and read your mail. Dpeending on what its about your character can get happy and dance about, sad, do nothing, earn or lose gotchipoints and happiness points. When an adult, you seem to receive your salary (once you get your job)
Seventh option-health
Another straightforward icon. When your Tamagothci gets ill or gets toothache from snack overdose, use this item to soothe it. t soemtimes takes a double dose. :o
Eighth icon-treasure icon
Everything you can play with that you've bought from the salesman/e-tamago you find here... There are diffetnt options... Yu may notice the light icon therefoe does not exist anymore, so basically your Tamagotchi turns its lights on and off by itself, so... one job less for you!
First option: You get the item of your school/job. At preschool you gt a handbag. If your at school you get different items that add extra GUT points (only one) to the GUT point it affects... Once you have a job, you get the item of that job and also get extra GUT points.
Second option: Anything that raises GUT points... Radios, TVs, Baths, Beds...
Third Option: I dont have anything in there... I think it has those pill-things to boost certain GUT points... But Im not sure
Fourth option: Tickets-all tickets you have appear here too
Fifth option: Other things that dont exactly raise pints of any kind as far as I know. My favourite option here is the microphone, because your Tamagotchi can sing three different tunes. :ichigotchi:
Ninth icon-Notebook
First option: I'm guessing it lists your friends, but as I have none, its empty
Second option: Family-your parents appear there. First the one you raised and then the partner you mated via matchmaker (or connection to other entama I guess)
Third option: I think its the graveyard where you pray to your dead entamas, so if your next one dies, the spirit will come and rescue it... Still, none of mine have died yet, so I refuse to try it out. :mametchi:
Tenth icon-Attention
If your Tamagotchi loses all hearts or needs attention/assistance of any kind, this shall light up.

Other settings
Time
You access it by pressing b. There, you cna modify the time by pressing c+a or modify the contrats by pressing b+c . A decreases contrast, b increases, c goes out with new contrast.
You can set the time to special times to make matchmaker/nanny/school teacher come
(15:00, 18:00 as far as I remember...)
Set it to aminute before and wait on normal screen for teacher/matchmaker/nany to come.
The Nanny
When your characetrs a toddler, he comes to teach it a dance. Press b button and they'll interact on their own... After two dances, nanny leaves. Your char may fail or do it well. Ity doesnt affect any points as far as I know.
The School Teacher
When your toddler becomes a teen, it appears breaking wind underneath a banner (O_o) and it leaves nanny. Your new teacher comes and gives you a present, which shall be your new itme.
There are three teachers, you'll get one or the other depending on how many GUT points you have. The one you have the most of is the teacher you get.
Geography teacher-Intelligence teacher. He hides a pencil in a present box and ou've got to guess in which one it is. Guess right-+10 GUT points, guess wrong, you get a poo. You get an "academic hat" and apencil from him which lift IQ up 1 GUT point.
Flower teacher-Style teacher (hides muscial note). You get top hat and flute.
Cnavas-head teahcer-Kindness teacher, hides heart.. You get a beret and "clay".
The Matchmaker
Once you get a job, you simply have o raise GUT points to gain more "stars". Meanwhile, you are visited by the matchmaker who offers you a partner from any fmaily.
Mamezoku+Memezoku=Memezoku
Memezoku+Kuchizoku=Kuchizoku
Kuchizoku+Mamezoku=Mamezoku
Same fmaily+same family=smae family
Secret Characters
If you give certain characters some care-you can get the secret character
Tensaitchi, NonBiritchi and Makikotchi (I think)
I read soemwhere (Skillful Abbott's page) that doing certain things you could get a secre character.
Tensaitchi:

  • Get a Mametchi
  • Get a job as a scientist
  • Get 999 GUT points in Intelligence
  • Wait for three days
Nonbiritchi:
  • Get a Kuchipatchi
  • Get a job as -not sure, best kindness job-
  • Get 999 GUT points in Kindness
  • Wait for three days
Makikotchi:
  • Get a Memetchi
  • Get a job as a pop star
  • Get 999 GUT points in Style
  • Wait for three days
Sound
A+C
Option 1: ON
Option 2 : OFF
Petting and getting random animation
Press c when no icon is highlighted and your character will be very happy. If teen/adult it shall walk pup to you. If baby/toddler it shall jump in glee.
I do not know what the old folks do.
Evolution
Evolutions on Entama take twice as long, to give you time to get enough GUT points.
I'm Interested-Where can I buy one?
Yesasia.com-An excellent place with Asian products. Apart from Keitai and AKAIs, they have entamas. They have them for REASONABLE prices. SImply search Tamagotchi
eBay is always a great bet. Search "entama" or "cho jinsei" and soemthing is bound to coem up! :o

Visit this TamaTalk link to view the growthchart of the characters and this on to view the names of each one.

It should evolve soon, like the 7th/8th/9th day. Then you must wait several days more for it to graduate, like 3, so you can get the matchmaker instead of school. ;)
