    I actually thought this was a very good idea- the trick doesn't harm other devices and both parties are happy! The other person got the genes they wanted and the person who didn't go through with the connection can keep searching for the genes they want while making other people happy. I don't really see any reason to stop this? Unless of course they're a mymeets user, but majority of them have been kicked off the app and you can check for corrupted data by looking through the family trees (eg tamas without eyes, black blobs etc)

    I’ve compiled a work-in-progress list of changes made between the ON and the Meets tamas. Contributions from ON owners are appreciated, and the list will update. The list will only include major/semi-major changes made, including character/land names and functionality changes. Here’s what I have so far... - English language (most obvious change) -Screw instead of push-button (again, obvious change) -No M!x connection -Livings being renamed to Rooms -Friendship meter horizontal and shows stars instead of words (needs clarification) -Gourmet Street renamed to Food Town (needs clarification) -Tama Depa renamed to Store/Shop or something similar (although the sprite still reads “tama depa” on the sign) This is all I have so far, but if you have an ON and can tell me more changes, that would be greatly appreciated. (Asking since I don’t have one of my own yet, and cannot check myself.)

    Doing a second update for the day so that I can get most of my future updates around the same time. Played enough of the 3rd game so that her 3rd stat (not sure what exactly it's called on the UraTama) is now 110. The idea of a tamagotchi without arms karate chopping planks with a human hand was so humorous to me I had to draw this Anyway that's all for today see you all tomorrow!

    Fun fact, I haven't seen another human in over a week. Fortunately, I find that to be a total win!

    Haven't seen anyone talking about it yet so thought I'd make a post Anyone seen the new tamagotchi yet? It's coming out in late November and it seems to have a diamond kind of thing at the top. Would consider buying it if i wasn't broke lol,,, recently just bought a tama on + I'm a student with no income so I'll have to save up again ;_;

    The moment has finally come! Bandai Japan has just officially announced the Eevee Tamagotchi, which is that fabulous collaboration that was leaked a few weeks back. Tamagotchi and Pokemon fans around the world can rejoice because this one is good. Just as you’ve expected, the details previously provided are pretty much on par with the official details. There will be two versions, ‘Love Eevee’ and ‘Colorful Friends’ which feature different shell designs, but will both have the same content. Each Eevee will hatch from an egg and depending on your care you can get a variety of Eevee’s! Each variation of Eevee is a bit different and all based upon care, there are a total of 8 variations of Eevee; they’re all super adorable! There also appears to be three mystery variations that Bandai has not yet released, but you can see that in the graphic above. You’ll be raising Eevee the whole time, which includes feeding, playing games, and enjoying Eeevee’s close up expressions right on your Tamagotchi screen! How adorable? The Eeeve Tamagotchi’s will be released on January 26th 2019, the MSRP is ¥2300 which is roughly $20 USD. The targeted age group for this device is 6+ due to its simplicity. It’s very important to note that this device is very different from the traditional Tamagotchi as it has similar functionality to the Tamagotchi Nano, and the newer Gudetama Tamagotchi. Bandai will be releasing a video really soon with additional information and functionality. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as we receive additional information. How excited are you for this Eevee Tamagotchi?!

    From what I understand it will. Be late July when its released, so about the same time as the previous ON launch. Yes! This for sure was the same one! However there was no images but the description was TURQUOISE and LAVENDER, which is the same as the other 2 fantasy meets! But where I work doesn't always get up to date info, and the fact there was no preorder date was concerning so it may be a upcoming announcement soon or a delay. I'll keep yall posted since I dont get many shifts due to COVID-19

    Hey everybody! I thought it'd be fun to initiate a hatch where we run our favorite tamagotchi(s)! This allows for you to show off your favorite(s) through logging about them. I'm expecting there to be lots of variety since everyone's tastes are different, meaning some might finish logging sooner than others depending on the version(s) they use. I'm planning to only have this hatch last for 1 generation, unless y'all want to continue past that! Let me know The rules are simple. The hatch will begin on Sunday, May 17th. There's no specific time that you have to hatch at due to differences in time zones. Pictures are optional, but I recommend them! You can begin on any generation, no need to do a full reset unless you want. As long as you start with a baby and update us when you can, you're all good! As for what version you hatch, it's all up to you! It can be your favorite shell, a version with your favorite character, an old favorite, all-time favorite, current/recent favorite, etc.! As long as it's a tamagotchi, that's all that matters. Feel free to hatch multiple favorites if you want. Not everyone can just choose one, lol! So start thinking about which tamagotchi(s) you love most! I have a lot of favorites, so it'll take some thinking for me. I'll keep you posted on what version I decide to hatch when the time comes

    @KidRetro64 already mentioned this on their profile, but this is what Bandai Namco US posted on Twitter before the weekend. It’s to celebrate Pac-Man’s 40th anniversary. Hope it comes to Europe as well. Would be a bit disappointing if it was just yet another Tamagotchi Nano version (with Pac-Man instead of Gudetama or Eevee), but either way, I am very excited for its unveiling! Come to think of it, the Tamagotchi Mame Game hardware was used for Pac-Man once.

    Hey look, it's hwd45 again. I wonder what weird topic he's starting this time? I think I'll have to start this with a bit of a disclaimer - I do not know the full extent of the procedure I'm showing off. As such, I cannot guarantee that this will not cause permanent damage to your device, though I do think it's likely that permanent damage is not something that can be attained via these glitches. Regardless, if you do choose to experiment with these glitches, be aware that at the very least you will likely lose your save data. I'm performing these glitches on a pre-owned device that I bought purely for experimental purposes. A few years back someone uploaded a video simply titled "Tamagotchi Glitches" showing some utterly bizarre behaviour that I've never seen from a Tamagotchi before. Another user uploaded a similar video using a Spanish V2. According to the first video, the following process was used in obtaining these glitches: I was not entirely sure what this meant at first, but it turns out that the "slide the battery in and out" is the most important part - the rest seems to be entirely irrelevant. From my own personal experiments it seems like it's harder to get exciting things to happen on screens with a low refresh rate - screens which aren't constantly updating - but pretty much any screen can be used to interesting results. Screens like the idle screen and the health menu have low refresh rates and the battery can actually be taken out for several seconds before the screen fades and it shuts down, whereas the shop screens and the transition to and from the clock screen have an incredibly high refresh rate and the device runs out of battery almost immediately when the battery is removed on these screens. Some screens seem to include more of a danger factor - attempting these glitches on the shopkeeper screen oddly seems to fully reset my device most of the time. What's so exciting about these glitches? Well, what appealed most about them to me was their ability to present the player with content you wouldn't see under normal conditions. Unused items? Unused games? Some utterly bizarre pseudo-characters that emerge from the device using the wrong sprite offset for your character? It's all here. Let's go over some of the exciting things seen in the videos, as well as some of the glitches I've been able to personally replicate. The Character -> Item Glitch One of the glitches I've not managed to reproduce is a glitch which replaces each sprite of your character's animation with an item. Since most of the items shown are V1 items (and hence items with a low item ID value) it stands to reason that the item that's shown seems to represent the ID value of the sprite that's shown. Here's a table: Sprite Item ID Idle 1 BALL 0 Idle 2 PENCIL 1 Happy WIG 2 Mouth closed SUNGLASSES 3 Mouth open TOOLS 4 Eyes closed SKATEBOARD 5 Back turned WEIGHTS 6 No RACQUETS 7 Angry CAPE 8 Sad BOW 9 Running 1 BOOTS 11 Running 2 CAP 12 Fallen over BOW TIE 13 Sitting mouth closed WINGS 14 Sitting mouth open HAIR GEL 15 Close-up close 1 SUNDAE 22 Close-up close 2 MILK 23 Favourite food ENERGY DRINK 52 Close-up mid Poo ?? Tooth brushing (1?/2?) Present Ice Cream ?? I'd like to continue gathering information on these sprites so I can work towards a more complete list of item IDs and sprite IDs. The Character -> Egg Glitch Similar to above - the sprites used for the character are now egg sprites. There's only four egg sprites, though, so after a certain point Petitchi sprites are used instead, but all offset by four. These can be used in conjunction with the item glitch above to figure out item IDs, since we know the difference between the ID of the sprite that is supposed to be shown and the ID of the sprite that is actually shown is four. Here's a table: Sprite Egg / Petitchi Sprite ID Idle 1 Egg 1 0 Idle 2 Egg 2 1 Happy Egg hatch M 2 Mouth closed Egg hatch F 3 Mouth open Idle 1 4 Eyes closed Idle 2 5 No Mouth closed 7 Angry Mouth open 8 The Egg -> Violetchi Glitch One glitch I've successfully performed that wasn't shown in the video was a similar glitch to the above, but instead of a character changing to an egg, the egg changed to have a character's sprite. That's about it, haha. Unused sprites? A few images of the V2 show content which is either never seen under normal conditions or only seen later on the V3. Could they have swapped the shells half way through the video? Perhaps. But it's certainly interesting and worth investigating. And I really have no idea what that "TRY?" menu might do, but I have been able to glitch into random menus using these glitches a few times, so it's possible that this could reveal some hidden functionality or something. The Rebirth Glitch This was a glitch I definitely wasn't expecting. Sometimes, messing with the battery will cause your Tamagotchi to revert back to an egg - this isn't quite the same as a full restart since it doesn't ask you to re-enter the time and date, but bizarrely, it seems to totally randomise the time and date, even to the extent of changing the clock to impossible dates like the 64th of April. The name of your character is also sometimes preserved, but it's usually randomised - this can even mean some of the characters changing to hiragana, like what was seen in the video. Several times I've also encountered glitch characters which will eventually change back to a hiragana character if you scroll far enough, and doing so seems to also change the character to the right of it, too. Very weird. Sometimes, after hatching, another glitch will have taken hold too: The Ball Glitch It's somewhat infamous at this point, but the ball glitch is a glitch which absolutely floods your item and food lists with balls. Occasionally other items end up in there too, but balls are the common denominator. This can go way beyond the 32 item limit and even go over 100, causing the number in the corner of the screen to behave strangely. What happens if you eat one of the non-food items? I wasn't really expecting this to happen, but weirdly, the animation for the standard meal that babies and children eat on the V1 (versions 0.0 - 2.4; or in other words, all the non-American devices) is shown instead. This item isn't seen anywhere else on the V2! My shop also filled with balls. Speaking of the shop, Glitch Items I'm not sure how I pulled it off but I managed to get all the shop items to change to glitch items. And they *stayed* that way, even after changing the battery. I tried buying a couple to see what they did but I couldn't use them as my character was still a baby. The sprites consisted of segments of text taken from the names of other items. Here are the items, and some interesting data to go with them: No. Sprite Price Notes 1 AB 800p Matches price of item ID 3, sprite resembles CRAB (ID ??) 2 K 1000p Matches price of item ID 2, sprite resembles MILK (ID 23) 3 AIT 110p Matches price of item ID 1, sprite resembles PARFAIT (ID 22) 4 ET 200p Matches price of item ID 0, sprite resembles OMELET (ID 21) One interesting side-effect of these sprites being based on the names of other items is that in later variants of the V2 the item names changed and so some of these sprites would change, too. I sent one of the items over to another V2 but curiously it just arrived as one of the standard gift ice creams. I've no idea why. So far the items have been otherwise unusable but it's possible that they'll be usable once my character reaches adulthood. There's definitely some sort of pattern in the data for each of the glitch items. Not only do the item prices match four consecutive items, but the names for each of the items seem to be the same glitchy mess, but shifted along by three pixels to the left for each consecutive item. Three of the small text fragments in the icons seem to match three items known to have consecutive ID numbers, too (as seen above, OMELET, PARFAIT and MILK have consecutive IDs). It stands to reason that CRAB might have an ID of 24 - the only other item ending in "AB" is KEBAB (which was called BBQ on later devices) but this one already has a known ID of 33. This actually aligns with some other known information about the V2 - the food items that are given by Deka characters. Here are the IDs of the Deka characters: ID Character 23 Omuratchi 24 Capsuletchi 25 Tamagotchi 26 Tsutatchi 27 Burgertchi 28 Denpatchi 29 Maikutchi And here are the food items given by each, as well as the ID of that item: Char ID Character Item Item ID 23 Omuratchi OMELET 21 SUNDAE 22 24 Capsuletchi MILK 23 CRAB 24? 25 Tamagotchi FRIED EGGS ?? BANANAS 26 26 Tsutatchi CHERRIES 27 PEANUT ?? 27 Burgertchi BURGER 29 FRIES 30 This can be used as further proof of several item's ID numbers - FRIED EGGS goes in slot 25 and PEANUT in 28. Denpatchi and Maikutchi's items can probably be used to determine more item IDs too, but I'm not sure what items they send to the V2. If you're wondering why the Deka characters give such a strange array of items, it's because the items they give on the V1 actually make some sort of sense, but the IDs used by these items were overwritten by different items on the V2. Anyway, that's enough of that small tangent. This is all I've got for now, but I'll continue to update as I find more interesting glitches! It's fascinating that using glitches like these can give us such an insight into how Tamagotchis work, and I've still got my fingers crossed that I'll eventually obtain a more interesting unused item via these methods.

    Hello there once again guys and girls. This status update isn't about Tamagotchi (for once) lol. It's just a friendly reminder. Well, let's get straight to the point. You have probably heard this like a thousand times, but try staying as safe as possible from COVID-19 at least until a vaccine is found and tested well enough. Pandemics like this ain't no joke. Follow your government's safety instructions and tips on how to stay relatively safe. It's better to be safe than sorry. You can check out World Health Organization's page for more info. https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019 Stay safe! Cheers, Alex.

    Hello there! I decided to track some of my little berry's new adventures. Of course, he fell asleep right before I thought to take pictures. Maybe I'll come back and make this post a little nicer soon~

    I've faced similar before Don't be sneaky tho' - that never works and basically breaks down trust and friendship between partners or family members. I can only suggest doing something similar to what I used to do. Tell your husband that you want to buy the sanrio and pastel meets because they're good value right now. Tell him these tamas are something that you enjoy using and playing with - like a hobby. They make you happy, so you hope that he's okay with it even if he himself can't see the appeal. You could add that you know there's enough savings for "fun" stuff but you'd be happy to use your own money from your own account if he would prefer that option. A friendly, rational chat is usually the best approach. But that "guys... it's something that makes me happy and I can afford it; why is that not ok? Please don't make me feel down about it" is the best way to approach things.

    There are a LOT of really cool fan Tamagotchi related projects going on right now. I wanted to draw some attention to one that has fantastic potential: Tamagotchi-Re-animated I can't describe their project any better than they do: I can't wait to see what comes out of this collaboration! Check them out here or on Twitter

    Hello guys! Umm... I don't know how to start. So... It has been a rather interesting week for this project. I discovered that my old laptop was still lying around in my attic. This laptop was from 2008. My cousin had formatted it a few years ago but I was certain that I had visited the old Tamagotchi Europe quite a few times before the format. Long story short, I contacted a recovery service and told them about the situation. Two days ago they told me they have found some files. Some of them were OK but some of them were corrupted. So I have to wait for their next reply when they have finished working on the hard drive. I am confident that this time it will be A FULL RESTORATION PROJECT! I AM SO HYPED! See ya in the next one!
