    Unfortunately, this theory is not possible, since the tamagotchi would register Lovelitchi (of the example) as the mother, making it impossible to marry her again. However, you can marry with her a generation yes, a generation no, a generation yes, a generation no ... although you would need male children (I think it is possible to restart before the end of the animation of the newborn to repeat the wedding until the desired gender is achieved).

    Yo! Total music star veteran here, hopefully I'll be able to help you Anyway, the V6/Music Star has a whole ton of growth charts that you can easily search up -- for most, if not all of them, Memetchi is required to have been taken "great care" of. Luckily, you're on an odd generation, as you noted in your post - so you're super close to getting her! So, if you want to know how to obtain Memetchi, you're gonna have to utilize something known as "care misses". Basically, if you let your tamagotchi's happy or hungry hearts drop to 0, every fifteen minutes they will call for your attention - signified by a little beep and the tenth icon on your screen lighting up. If you don't answer the call in these fifteen minutes, the icon will blank and you'll have obtained a care miss. This link here explains more about care misses, probably better than I did. Scroll down to the Connection Tamagotchis section and it'll be able to inform you! If you know what these are and how they work, great! All you need to know is that when your tama is a teenager, you'll have to miss 2-3 calls for attention (if I remember correctly) in order for it to evolve into Memetchi. Hope this helps!

    Welp, @KidRetro64 is absolutely correct. And I am 100000% sure that Bandai won't step in. Thanks for mentioning my work btw @iTamannadi!

    Due to the Meets and ON being found by several reviewers of the ON to be able to connect, after Bandai US stated they would not be able to, some in the community began to feel that if they were wrong about the two connecting that Bandai US was wrong about the bugs and glitches in the Meets being fixed in the ON was also not correct. I messaged Bandai US about this. Bellow is the message I sent them and their response. The blackout information is my name to protect my privacy.

    I can help you with this The PC on the Tamagotchi Friends is used to “buy” items online and get them downloaded on your Tamagotchi. Like the 4U, you can get exclusive items that you couldn’t get in the normal shop. Sadly, the Original Bandai Tamagotchi Friends website has long gone, but Mr Blinky has done a pretty ace job at making a remake. For other versions, I’m not sure. Another thing I’d like to add onto @iTamannadi ‘s comment is that Alex cannot Find the flies that were on the original Tamatown, because those type of files aren’t cached. Which means that the Connection models are now most likely never going to be linked to the website (unless Bandai steps in- which they most likely will not). If you tell us what type of Tamagotchi you have, someone can tell you exactly what it means. Oh! And here’s Mr Blinkys Website- http://mrblinky.net/tama/friends/ezgotchi/ Hope This Helped

    Entry 46 Last night the TS turned into Ichigotchi. It’s getting to the point where the TS will get sick even if all it is missing is one bowl (not heart) on the Health and Happiness meter. I need help with this, so if anyone has one and knows how it works or has an instruction guide, please help! I especially need help with what time it goes to sleep. Here’s something funny I forgot to show. Instead of the Happy meter, it’s the... wait for it... SCOK METER

    The majority of Tamagotchi devices have a ROM test mode but the activation methods differ between versions. On vintage devices, a screen test can be activated by pressing A+Reset. This mode does not display a version number or test the ROM functionality, however. For most Japanese devices, B+C+Reset is used to activate ROM testing features. More recent releases (from the P's onwards) use a different method - first the device must be reset, and then on the ちょっとまってね screen the buttons A, C, A, B, C must be pressed in succession all within about 2.5 seconds. This method is also used for the Tamagotchi On Other international devices - like all the connection era devices - use A+B+C+Reset. I think the Plus does too but I'm not entirely sure. If it helps, you can use this diagram.

    I took some collection pics this morning (because my neighbor was out yelling at her dog again). I laid all of them out on my desk and unsurprisingly, they took up every inch of space. I only have two tamas running at the moment and while I was taking these pictures, they woke up . First here they are all boxed: And then unboxed: My pink Angelgotchi doesn't work and I included those two Poke walkers because they are psedo-Vpets (one of them is my brother's). That light pink, oblong device at the bottom is actually an Angel Scope and technically not a virtual pet but some kind of fortune telling machine. I mistakenly bought it thinking it was a virtual pet and for that reason I included it in the group shot (it is also made by Bandai). My full collection list is in my profile if anyone wants to know their names.

    The answer is simple - Tamagotchi ON has been released early in Hong Kong. Not only it but also the English version of the Digimon 20th as well. HK usually receives most English model releases.

    For me, it was the day I had finally saved up (almost) enough money buy my first tamagotchi. I used to get 50p every once in a while as pocket money, and I had saved up a grand total of £12.50 (tamas were around £13/14 at the time, I think). I was 9/10 years old, and had no real concept of what was expensive and what wasn't, so to see I was a pound short both terrified me and made me extremely impatient. I went to my mother and grovelled at her feet so she would give me the £1 I was missing. She conceded (in what I thought was the biggest act of generousity at the time), and drove me to Argos. It was here I got my very first tama, a red v2. I loved that little thing with all my heart. I took it to restaurants, on holidays, to school... until it was stolen from my desk during a lesson and I knew it was the boy who sat next to me. That evening I gathered my parents to go and knock on the boys door and got it back (screw you, Bradley!). My little Ichigotchi was barely hanging on, but I was triumphant Any memory of my little Version 2 is nostalgic to me! ♥

    I shoved all the ones I have on hand onto the display to share, but I usually put my favorites on display. Usually on display: Gudetama, Eevee, Sanrio m!x, Angel, 4U, & V6. The rest go into Crayon boxes to keep them safe. In Picture: Mini Eevee x Tamagotchi 2 P2's P1 4U V6 Sanrio M!X 2 Gudetama Tamagotchi 2 Tamagotchi Angel (EN & JP) Not in picture/ In Storage for the time being: P2 V2 4 V3's v4 v4.5 v5 2 v6's You have no idea how eager I am to run one of my v3's when I get them out from storage.

    Disclaimer: All of the following is not information about a new or upcoming product and is just my idea for a new vpet. Introducing the Tomodatchi! The Tomodatchi (coming from the Japanese word for friend, “tomodachi”) is a simple tama with a simple task: get as many friends as possible! There are two versions: Island and Nature. Depending on the version, there are different shells and a different character to befriend on both; Beatchi and Forestchi respectively. At the start of the game, you are introduced to the main/titular character, Tomodatchi. You can choose if they are a boy or girl, but the only real difference is the color (blue or pink). As you evolve into the adult stage, you can build relationships with other tamas- bringing their favorite food/item, playing with them, and the like to raise friend status. To move on to the next generation, you must get at least 5 tamas to the “Best Friend” stage. There are four stages: Stranger, Acquaintance, Friend, and Best Friend, similar to the ON/Meets’ friend levels. Once you’ve befriended five tamas, you can marry, and the process starts again. Depending on how well you did, the difficulty of building a friendship changes; the faster you befriended 5 tamas, the harder the next generation will be, and vice versa for the slower. However, on the next generation, you cannot befriend the same 5 tamas. You “beat” the vpet once you’ve befriended every tamagotchi character- but this is not an easy task, as there are a lot! Once you’ve beaten it, you can choose to start over at a harder difficulty with more characters, letting there be some replayability. Let’s look at the actual vpet and what you can do... This example is a Strawberry Nature shell, but the functions are the same for both versions. There are 5 buttons and a simple color screen, and the device itself is between the size of a Connection and a Tama-Go. The bottom three are for your usual menu scrolling, selecting, and cancelling, but the arrow buttons are for some of the games and to go to different parts of each world to find more tamas. There are two connection sensors- an IR and a NFC. The IR is for Connection-era models to connect, and the NFC is for other Tomodatchis. There is also a hole for a lanyard or keychain. The options are similar to a regular vpet: you have status, eating, bathroom, games, connection, exploring the town, items, and a friend list. There is also another icon, a generation viewer, that lets you see what every generation has befriended so you don’t get confused on if you’ve befriended a tama already. That’s about it for my vpet concept, hope you enjoyed!

    I really enjoyed reading about your concept, especially the IR and NFC feature! for some reason it reminded me of Mesutchi & Osutchi

    I'm very happy that a color Tamagotchi is finally being released in English, but as for me, I don't think I'll buy one. Tamagotchis like the Meets Pastel, Meets Sanrio or Meets Fantasy seem more appealing to me. Perhaps the Tamagotchi On becomes the first step for more Tamagotchis like these (still?) Japan exclusives to come out from Japan in English in the future, and hopefully with good sales and increasing popularity in the whole world.

    I think these would be a good adition to the database- Name: Rakuraku Dinokun Type: Fake Notes: Has the infamous 'Bunny ROM' and it's very common in physical stores. Basically if you go to a random market you'll see these. It has 5 buttons and transparent shell. It is currently available in 4 colors(?). It's a fake to Rakuraku Dinokun/Dinkie Dino.

    If it’s just dirt on the screen I think wiping them is enough! I’m not sure if you will find screen protectors specifically made for P1 or P2, but you can buy a phone screen protector from any mobile shop and try to cut it so it can fit your tamas.

    Hi all! My parents brought three tamagotchis online, bless their hearts. They are fake but I appreciate it a lot so was just wondering if anyone has any experience with this particular one. You can choose out of two pets, a human or a dinosaur. It has twelve menu options to go through, the first one is food and I can feed the pet no problem but most of the other options (excluding the stats and food ones) the pet will just shake its head no. The stats option also shows a code S006YR00 https://imgur.com/gallery/Hv7Qpyt Sorry about the image quality, my camera is awful.

    It wasn't there when I reviewed and approved the thread, so I'm guessing that something went wrong when the post was made (though what that is, I don't know). For additional clarity, here's an embed of the image, as well; I must say that I appreciate their honesty! Their department doesn't know for sure, and they don't mince words about it - that's far better than vague, non-committal answers that might get people's hopes up (as is the norm, on, say, a company's social-media channels).

    Addiction sounds extreme. It seems like you are an avid collector with a large collection. Collecting is a hobby. Ask yourself: Does your hobby have negative consequences - on your relationships in real life - social, romantic, family? Do you spend more on tamas than you can afford? Do you have enough money for important living expenses? Do you find yourself buying more tamas than you actually want? For example, you see a tama you would like to buy as you're browsing online, then spot several other tamas that are also possible purchases but then can't decide which one you want the most... so instead of making a decision on which one, you just buy them all? Playing with tamas can be used to escape real life problems, relax, or reward yourself, but if you believe genuinely that you need them to enjoy life, or that you can’t cope without them, this is something that should ring alarm bells.

    Canadian fans have theirs early so maybe if anything turns up before the release on the 28th they'll let us know. There's also the people Bandai sent Tamagotchi ON's to in order to review them and give their thoughts and they've had the ON's for a while now. So I think any bugs or glitches would have shown up by now if their still playing with them. And I haven't heard of any bugs or glitches from the reviewers.

    A polite reminder, Kurb, TamaTalk isn't a chat-room or Twitter, and single-word/single-abbreviation posts don't add anything to discussions. You can use the "Like" function (the little heart-symbol found at the bottom-right corner of a post) to express the same sentiment without actually posting about it. Don't worry too much about it as it's by no means a new phenomenon*, just please keep it in check. *See: "Me, too!", and "The September that never ended". I must echo this sentiment. I've kept an eye out for follow-ups after @InCyberspace posted this thread, since I was interested in seeing the mentioned footage and maybe some stills get a mention. The story is fascinating!

    Both look legit. The signs of a bootleg Dinkie Dino are transparent shells and anything other than yellow, red, white, and teal. The best way to tell is to compare the graphics to a real Dinkie Dino, which in that case the the first one matches. Be care though because some that do have correct-looking shells are actually Hitorikko.

    What do you mean? Do you mean people and kids who will buy it because it looks neat or they missed out back when Tama's were really popular? Because a lot of people with a Meets are those big into the Tama community and imported them. Either way those glitches in the Meets can be game breakers for a lot of people. Some of the glitches on the Meets from what I've heard are: Draining the battery sometimes as fast as a day despite the brightness being at its lowest. Tamagotchi won't grow up (called the Peter Pan Glitch by some in the community) Resetting on its own. Lagging.

    I recommend Touma Pet. Hardware wise it is much better. Besides the battery, the buttons are much easier to press and the sound is better, though loud even on low. (Though, this is kind of irrelevant now that the new and improved WPets are our.) It plays exactly the same as the QPet, except with enhanced graphics and Animal Crossing-esque characters. The main difference in play is that the baby and toddler stage will always be the same characters, so growth is a mystery until adulthood. There are also more minigames that are overall decent. My favorite part is all the little extra details M&D added. For example, if you press one of the two extra side buttons, it plays a few different animations. There’s also a texting feature with kawaii GIF emoticons! For money I just harvest roses (QPet)/ cherries (Touma) so it’s nice being able to buy multiple of one item at a time instead of individually like on QPet. The most annoying part? Pressing the A button doesn’t scroll through the menu until you press C first... Instead, it makes your Touma Pet jump, and if you press it enough it can even hit its head on the ceiling. Yeah, it’s as weird as it sounds. My second biggest gripe is the overall lack of gameplay chances from QPet. Touma Pets are $20 depending on where you look. I’ve gotten results for them at that price by searching “cartoon pet game” on eBay and AliExpress. The ones on Amazon can be really overpriced, but they tend to come with an English box + instructions and in nicer condition. (However I saw someone pay $80 for one in a smashed box...) Ones on Aliexpress can come smashed, if you’re concerned with that sort of thing. If it doesn’t sound better, just look for one of the new QPets. They look like this: And for comparison... At the end of the day, it depends on whether or not you prefer Tamagotchi or cartoon animal characters, and whether or not you care about the small enhancements. I can’t speak about the “new” QPet but from the sound of it, it has all the hardware upgrades of the Touma Pet in addition to faceplates.

    I'm really looking forward to reading this. My favourite virtual pets are 1990s ones (Bandai or not) and oddball generics and bootlegs from all eras*, so this is my favourite sort of content with this hobby. *If you've ever heard of the "Tamagochan", which was one of the first virtual pets that tried to fool the unwary into thinking that it was related to the real deal whilst not actually stealing any logos or artwork, that's where that particular interest comes from. Thanks very, very much for the kind offer, but that's ok. Also, we don't allow for trading and similar here anyway (there was formerly a section for this, before I was here, but I gather that it was closed due to problems that occurred), and I'm pretty sure that this would fall under that. Many thanks again, though!

    Sadly the answer is no. Items don't stick around after each generation on the V1. The V1 times are as follows, unless I'm mistaken: Mametchi, Mimitchi: Bow Tie, Bow, Pencil Kuchipatchi, Memetchi: Cap, Maracas Tarakotchi: Boots, Skateboard Hanatchi, Androtchi: Wig, Bubbles Masktchi, Gozarutchi: Cape, Wings, Darts Oyajitchi: Hair Gel Everyone else: Ball I'm pretty sure Sunglasses and Weights are on the V1 too but I can't remember who receives them. This page has a more complete V2 item list, though I think there might still be gaps here and there.

    M!X can connect with Meets. These two can't connect to the older versions like P's though because of the completely different programming they have. But a P's can connect to iD L and so forth, so yes connecting between versions is usually a standard unless the programming differs a lot.

    As far as I know, snacks only cause problems on the recent remakes of the Gen 1 and Gen 2, where they have a consequence of causing early death if overdone, and seem to negatively influence evolutions as well. I don't recall them making much of a difference on the originals. I'm pretty sure that perfect care comes from monitoring and tending to the Tamagotchi quickly enough that it doesn't have to call you when it's hungry or unhappy, and average care would be when it has to call but it's tended to before the attention icon goes out (if memory serves, it going out counts as a care mistake), and so on.
