    @darkmagic616 It is. A lot of the graphics are copied or at least heavily borrowed from those versions. It even has the same RPM screen, and the mechanic where stopping at a certain point on the meter unleashes a more powerful attack. They didn’t change a thing! What an odd knockoff- the case rips off one version and the gameplay rips off another. @MarcoFusion Sorry, but no. Any more drawings will be for this log. Now, if you request a character from stuff I’m currently running (like Crystal Warriors right now), then okay ;D Day 2 Using the reset trick to pause it caused the memory to wipe last time, so I’m at square one. This entry will mostly be pics I wasn’t able to get last time. Pics will cover tournaments 1-2 There are a ton of photos, so here is a link to the PostImg gallery: https://postimg.cc/gallery/1t219npvq/ In the meantime, I will be looking for a better image hosting site and working on day 3’s entry.

    Hello and welcome to my mega bootleg log, and also first log ever! I will be running a bunch of different bootlegs and knockoffs, some of which are obscure. If you have any questions about one, please leave a question and I will reply to it in the next entry. Where to find fakes: eBay is good for older knockoffs from the 90's, while Aliexpress is great for finding new ones. Taobao also has a lot, but you might need a middleman depending on where you live. I don't recommend buying any besides M&D ones (QPet, Nana Moon, etc.) because they tend to be really bad otherwise. First up is the Crystal Warriors 10th Anniversary game. Info links: English instructions here. Baidu article here. All 130 episodes of Crystal Warriors here. Pics of the box. After doing some research it turns out the cartoon was only 8 years old at the time these were released, but apparently in order to coincide with the Pendulum 20th Anniversaries M&D made this rerelease. The instructions also state that there are 4 different versions, similar to the real Pendulum releases, but this is false and they all have Vritramon. (However, the original release of this did have 4 and had more care features, and there's always a possibility of M&D releasing more in the future.) This probably isn’t going to fool anyone, but is it a bad knockoff? Surprisingly, no. I’ve never played a Digimon before and am not that familiar with them, but from what I’ve seen it is kinda similar. There are 6 different tournaments, and I have 3 more to go. Then, there is a final boss. After that I have to replay through everything again in order to get 200% completion, so nothing will be missed. Recap of Day 1, Sorry no photos this time: I started the Crystal Warrior up, and right off the bat I knew this wasn’t going to be a standard vpet. It’s more of a game that mimics a virtual pet. This was surprising since the Nana Moon minis have all their features entact, but not these. Unfortunately, when M&D pumped these out to cash in on the anniversary Pendulums, they got rid of pet functions. There's still an incentive to check on it, since its power will slowly deplete every few hours. I just put the tab back in when I'm busy since it has a save feature. After reading the instructions and grinding with the 3 games to buy a crystal, it was time to enter the first tournament. Evolving the monster makes it very OP, rendering the Help feature obsolete since using crystals to evolve is necessary to win. I had no idea what was going on, but it was a swift victory. The second one was harder, since I tried relying on the Help. That ended up backfiring, and I lost during the 4th round. For “Help,” there are 3 other characters to choose from, which are from the 3 other versions. Each swapped warrior replaces Vritramon and evolves into its second form to attack, but can only be used once per tournament. Battles only last a few rounds, even if both are still standing. Whoever has the most HP left wins. Since HP doesn’t replenish between rounds, I was lucky to have even made it that far. When you lose, the warrior’s power/training bar stays the same but you have to try again. There’s a progress page that shows total battles won (regardless if the tourney is lost) and the total completion rate. After grinding for more money and rebuying the crystal, it was pretty easy. Rinse and repeat for round 3, and I have 3 more to go. Now, this is kind of a nitpick, but the spritework on this is kind of mediocre. Some of the characters look poorly drawn. I understand that a lot of detail needs to be added in a small space, but sometimes the results leave me scratching my head. I mean, I can kind of see how the sprite matches the drawing, but this was my first impression without knowing what it was supposed to be.

    They do? That's kind of stupid.. ^^" But thanks for telling me anyway, I thought there's something going on I just don't understand. :,) Now I still have to find out how to evolve Eevee into Espeon/Umbreon.. At this point nobody seems to know how to do it. 😅 Edit: I just noticed something: Eevee Tamagotchi beeps at you at certain times! It beeps at 10am, 2pm and 6pm!

    I saw this mentioned a lot way back in 2004/5 when people were first getting their V3s. V3s make this very quiet ticking sound, which kinda sounds like a heartbeat or a clock. One of the main points of discussion back then was why the v3 had a heartbeat, but the other connections didn't. since I started collecting, i've noticed that none of my collection other than the v3s made the sound, not even the keitais, which I expected to have that in common. I thought it was really true that the v3s were just an anomaly and were the only ones that did it, but today I recieved a 2010 nano in the mail and found out that it also has a heartbeat! So this is partly a question to other collectors of many breeds of tama: do you know of any others that make the sound? I'm surprised that, between keitais and akais and the earlier connections, the nano of all things would be the one to share a weird trait like that. On the topic of odd sounds, I also observed something else. I have in my posession four v3s. Three of them, my pink ice cream, translucent pink and green hibiscus, have the old "tamagotchi connection" logo with mimitchi in the O. The zebra has a newer logo that jsut says "tamagotchi" and has mametchi instead. My zebra, ice cream and hibiscus tamas all sound exactly the same, however, the translucent one's sound is just a tiny bit lower than the others. The only other notable difference is that it has a pink and yellow dots background instead of the blue and yellow boxes like the rest. Has anyone else noticed some of their tamas sounding different than their same-version siblings, or is it perhaps a difference between waves?

    Okay, I'm back. Here's a photo album on Postimage I'll update as I take more pics of it, as opposed to posting a bajillion more updates here: https://postimg.cc/gallery/2kuu2jh9i/ There's a lot of stuff I haven't been able to get pics of yet. Unlike the real Tamagotchi and QPet, the closeup sprites are only shown after it goes to the bathroom instead of pressing C. This means I have to get it to the bathroom on time and have my camera ready... It'll take a while, put I'll try to get as many as I can. The two I've seen so far (w/o pics to show) is burger and pineapple Ichigotchi. By the way, I haven't taken pics of Ichigotchi's costumes yet but the review linked above shows all of them.
