    Hello! I’ve been playing tamagotchis and reading logs for about 20 years now. I’m so old! For the past 10 years or so I’ve been too busy to actively participate in the community, but I’d like to give it a shot again. I usually integrate Tamas into my everyday life and the events tend to overlap, so I’ll probably be mentioning a lot of everyday life stuff they experience with me as opposed to just stats and characters. I’m gonna start with the small goal of updating once a week, since I tend to work almost 60 hours a week. okay okay! Where to begin? I finally had a fairly relaxing weekend, and for some reason started running 4 Tamagotchi. 2 V2, my Devilgotchi, and my ON Wondergarden! I’ve never managed to get my Devilgotchi to adulthood, so they’ll be my main focus. I want little devil mametchi this year. I already hatched them once a few days ago, but they didn’t manage to make it past 24 hours. I’m the worst! it’s hard when you have to keep the DP so high! As for the other 3, they’re all your first generation basics! A ringotchi teen, a hitodetchi toddler, and a clubutchi on my ON. We were supposed to get coffee with a friend today, but I really wanted an entire day to myself. We got some work done for clients this week, and I managed to get about an hour or so of studying perspective drawing. We even answered a few emails! I am getting a little lonely as the evening is wearing on though. I should shower and watch spooky movies for the rest of the night! `

    Oooh, I love that growth chart! Helps me out a ton because... I've been doing my own run of the game in my spare time! It's been quite fun getting to know this game personally - years and years ago I had it on an emulator but I had no idea what I was doing with it, so to return to it again after years of simply admiring it is something else. I forgot Takotchi was a low-level care character - I love them so much that I didn't even mind! I was thinking about adding the game to my own log, but I'm the dirty kind of emulation freak - I toggle speed-up and rewind like it's no tomorrow. If I ever get a real cart of the game I might, as I'd actually be taking my time there. XD It's no wonder I got Takotchi! GAIA RECLAIMS THEIR GLORY THIS IS ALL I'VE EVER WANTED

    Log for day 12/10/2020: It never occured to me that the tournaments might probably become tougher as your Tamagotchi wins a lot of them. Today, Gaia has attempted to win the Beauty tournament for a second time, and lost! A Pochitchi participated and won the day! To be fair, this safari photographer look is a lot less "cute" than this: This earned him 95 points. The others were like: and (I like the Takochi pose, he's like "I'm soooo beautiful") And by the way, speaking of very broken english, I hadn't noticed this: "Entry 2 is winner" lol. So laughter! Of course Gaia's feelings were hurt but that's the way of life I guess! Not much has happened in Eternitchi since I was out all day. However, I've made a lot of progress in my attempt to program my own Tamagotchi. I've managed to implement a very simplified text-based simulation of the game in Matlab wherein the user enters his/her commands such as "feed" or "play" and the Tamagotchi's meters change accordingly. (Actually only the "feed" option is implemented). They also decrease over time and the tamagotchi can die if it hasn't been fed for a while. It also beeps when it gets hungry. After a short while the tamagotchi evolves from Babytchi to... nothing since it was only a test so far. (Upon evolving the program just stops and you've won basically). This is what it looks like: The reason for using Matlab is only that I'm the most proficient at it and I'm aware that it's not a good programming language for creating games (or any standalone app in fact). Then I made this: and I stared at it for way longer than a sane mind should, thinking about the many directions of implementation that I could be taking.

    Hello, hello, I'm a long time fan of tamagotchi but a new member to tamatalk! I decided to start a log for the lavender Wonder Garden tamagotchi I just got, which was one part a nostalgia purchase and another part mental health purchase. As silly as it sounds, tamagotchis helped me through depression and anxiety as a kid. They're very much security blankets to me. However this log won't really record my mental health, just the tamagotchi so don't worry about that. Forgive my phone's crummy camera, but I got a baby girl! I've always been more partial to female tamas personally! Also yes, that is my personal art! I find tamagotchi's simple designs lend well to being good warm up sketches so expect seeing some doodles my tamas now and then.

    I'm aware Himediatchi is the "bad care" toddler, but I find her utterly adorable so I'm content with this development, especially since this version of tamagotchi doesn't bar you from certain evolution paths depending on who you get if I understand the growth charts correctly like older gens did. I'm not aiming for any particular teen or adult but I do know I'm going to try and marry her off to Pumpkitchi.

    Just a quick update today! Not much has happened at all, in fact I've barely had to pay attention to Naru and Astro all day. Let's get... logging? I won't bother separating into sections, as I literally only have one photo - that being the iD L - here with me: I wish Mimitchi was obtainable on the original iD L. 15th Anniversary ones are so rare nowadays! It's Naru painting Mimitchi's portrait! How cute. The animation lasted for quite a while, so I wondered if it also counted as one of Nachuratchi's Tamatomo Stamps. Doesn't make a difference now, but some 'gotchis can have more than three item-category stamps depending on which one they grow up to be. It's not too common, though. Not much has happened with Astro on the Pac-Man Nano. I've been neglecting them all day, not enough to kill them but only so I can get the good/departure ending if possible. There's a part of me that doesn't want to reset the device itself, despite the fact that the PM Nano doesn't count your generations + you don't get anything special for keeping your save all this time. I even encountered the 256 bug (taken directly from level 256 and earlier from the original Pac-Man arcade game), which happens when you let your tama get chased by ghosts for long enough. And by long enough, I mean actual hours! This unfortunately yields no pictures for today, as poor Astro was getting chased all day long. I've never had a Tamagotchi version so lenient - at least I know which one to run if life gets busy. :D Before that it was always one of my duplicate V5s, which was my most low-maintenance Tamagotchi until a week ago. Interesting times! Other than this *amazing* discovery, I don't have much else to say. Let's see if I can post everyday!! >w< Next post: The ghosts won't stop bothering me about their so-called 'food crisis', look, I don't care if you're only haunting Pac-Man just to beg for a decent meal, I want you all out! Meanwhile, Naru finds true love, and a new lens cap for the camera in her... head? Hat? Anyway, cool adventures and more only on... uh... this log, which now owns the exclusive rights to both the previous praise and you, the reader, as a whole. Run for your life.

    01-10-2020, Part 2... Thanks very much! She is a spoon child - alongside her now-established clone -, and we all appreciate her in this household. Also, I totally need to binge The Simpsons again - I stopped at season 3 the last time! I'm so sorry for the delay, my dudes! I implied in the previous post (that I published myself) that I'd be updating a few hours after with the good news, but unfortunately the image hosting service I was using decided to crap out on me. It's working again, so we're back in action! And I can't wait to tell you everything that went down last night. As Harry (iD L) and Koko (m!x) are asleep and have not evolved, I will not cover them during this continuation post of sorts. Now then - let's get logging! ~*~*~*~*~*~ Pac-Man Nano, or, PM Nano In the early evening hours, I was greeted by a mysterious package - and inside this mysterious package lay the answer to all of life's questions. I love the packaging design - though I miss the arcade cabinet shape of it from the previous Toy Fair. Our legendary Nano is here! I mean, it's not that legendary, it was on sale for $10 (usually $40!) and I'd been eyeing the listing for months! I couldn't handle myself, I just had to pick it up. I chose the yellow shell over the black, as I've already got a black Tamagotchi (that being my V4.5), and I currently do not own a yellow one! They are quite hard to come across, actually. Also, it makes it resemble the original arcade cabinet! Which is cool. Missed opportunity to reference it more, though. Then again... ...The packaging was tiny - and so was the Tamagotchi. I know Nano is in the name, but seriously. It's small. Doesn't look that tiny in the photos I take! That tab is as thin as my pinkie, even the circular part. I have no idea how the paint job is so precise. I know it's probably, well, not hand-painted at the very least! But still. It's small. Those with big fingers, watch the buttons. Here are some size comparisons because I am still in awe for some reason: IT'S. SO. SMALL. First photo is the Nano compared to my iD L (Harry), the second photo is the Nano compared to both my original 1997 English P2 (which is already small compared to the connections!!!) and the iD L. I seriously can't say this enough. It's babey. It looks like a McDonald's toy I would've had as a kid, and we gave our collection away yeeeaaars ago. It's as thick as any of my colour Tamagotchis - even the 4U. I'm not kidding. And the 4U is known for being the biggest boy of them all thanks to that stupid NFC chip! I have never been this hysterical over a Tamagotchi before, not even when I got my princess spacey iD L (my first colour!) all those years ago and gawked at how big it was compared to the tiny, thin connections I was running at the time. It is pure insanity. I should not be this surprised over something that is as big as a watch faceplate. Possibly smaller depending on the size of your own watch. I CAN'T HANDLE THIS I-- Either way, there was no time to sit and stare at this tiny itty-bitty baby of a 'gotchi - we had a tama to hatch! Look!!! Egg. Once I pulled out the tab, I heard this lovely little start-up tune (almost identical to the start from the original Pac-Man) alongside a message saying 'READY!' (which is a straight-up reference to the start of the OG Pac-Man), and was asked to set the time. It took me to the most adorable clock screen. It looks like a sleeker version of the connection's very own clock screen, with bright and bold numbers + a huge AM/PM sign right above. I noticed instantly that the pitch of the device was very high, as high as the connection V5/Familitchi (which is known for being an ear-teasing screech fest). This was obviously done to match the pitch of the original arcade game's songs and sound effects - it's a touch higher than the V5, and a lot higher than the connections (the earlier devices being the most low-pitched) to compensate. Though the Pac-Man Nano isn't actually the highest-pitch Tamagotchi out there, actually. No, that wonderful honor goes to the vintages, and by wonderful I mean AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-- Hatched!! Suddenly, our little Tamagotchi hatched! We were met with a Shirobabytchi: Look at that blank stare. It knows. This means I get category A of the seven tamagotchis available to raise on this device - specifically, Mametchi, Ginjirotchi, Maskutchi and Kuchipatchi are available to be obtained, alongside their Pac-Man riding alts! How exciting. I wish I got category B (ft. Mimitchi, Pochitchi, and Zuccitchi, still no Nyatchi and I am upset), as I've always preferred the P2 characters in general as opposed to the P1 selections on this device. Anyway, I still haven't named our little Pac-Man friend at the time of writing. Let's go with Astro! Pressing the C button when there's nothing else on-screen activates the Close Up! Your tama also does this when loading a minigame. Isn't Astro a cutie? I'll give you a quick guide, as the last few photos I took are more or less prime opportunity: Watch out Pac-Man-- oh no, he can't hear us, PAC-MAN NO-- When you press the A button when you're chillin' with your tama, it will bring up two options - meal and game. Meal offers a rice bowl as a meal, and a pair of cherries as a snack! What a neat reference. The games aren't easy to capture on camera, as they're very fast paced - the first, 'Pac Game', features Pac-Man having to switch in-between three lanes to eat as many pellets as he can while avoiding the annoying little ghosts that constantly screw up his day (poor Pac-Man ). The second game, 'Catch Game', features a close-up screen of Pac-Man as he navigates a maze of sorts, trying to eat food and pellets while also avoiding ghosts. I don't like the latter game that much, but I did get a photo: Pac-Man has become trapped in the void. Pay up or he dies. It's not a very good photo, either way. Anyway, that's around all you can actually get up to, besides the occasional ghost chase (one of which I woke up to this morning, more on that next post), in which you press the A button if you see a pesky lil' ghost trying to summon the end of all worlds (or, the 256 bug, which is such a cool reference but apparently terrifying to experience according to others), with Pac-Man coming to the rescue! Lil' Paccy-Waccy's like a surrogate guardian, as he constantly cameos on this version. That's so sweet! What a hero. As it's already the 2nd down here, a new post will come shortly (if my image service doesn't short out again) covering the rest of the gang, and maybe Astro. The screen of the Nano is so deep inside, so the shell casts a shadow over the top depending on your light source. Not the most photographic tama, but we can manage! Next post: The Puck-Men have risen... now what? Astro destroys the Pac-Maze. Koko gets revenge against that one squirrel guy who keeps pulling her out of the house to roast some food by roasting him instead (the m!x's seasonal events are weird, yo). Harry crank-calls for the first time, and breaks down over the morality of his actions.

    That's good to know! I always feel bad whenever I raise the Gudetama nano because you have to let them die, so it's nice to know that the Pac-Man Tamagotchi shares the fixed death of the mini. Entama Nutmeg got a job as, I assume, a coach today. I can't read the job options, so the jobs that my Entama gets are always a surprise. She should be getting married sometime tomorrow or Thursday and I'll be deactivating the Entama after that. Fairy ON I did eventually decide to run the ON yesterday (along with another Tama that you'll see in a second). Where we last left the ON, Shy Guy got married and left me with a baby girl who I had apparently named Lucina. She evolved into a Peacetchi and inherited the frosting hair! I'm hopeful that she will inherit her father's body because a Maskutchi with frosting hair would be super cute. Melody M!x I noticed my M!x on the shelf next to my ON and realized I hadn't ran it in a super long time. I think that's mostly because the Meets/ON is the "superior" version, but I figured it could be fun to revisit. Upon starting it, I was greeted with a 9th generation Tantotchi. Nothing much else has happened with her seeing as she was already evolved when I started the Tama. And that's all for today! Going on a little tangent, I wish that the ON and M!x could connect. It's a little strange that they can't, seeing as the Meets and M!x can connect, but I suppose they didn't want to confuse their North American audience. I'm going back to work tomorrow, but luckily this work week is much lighter compared to last week. I will say that I'm kinda nervous though because the sun rays and the sky are looking a little strange again. My job is mostly outdoors too, so having the air filled with ash kind of prevents me from making a living... My next day off is Sunday, but I'll try to update before then if I can.

    Welcome back!! Lots of things happened today, so let's get logging! I totally forgot to mention some things about Tamatomo Stamps yesterday: for one, getting your tama into the memory book is important because the more tamas you have in there, the more locations you unlock! Unlike future versions, this is how you unlock new places on the iD L (though there isn't really as many as there are on the m!x and meets/ON). They also extend your Tamagotchi's happiness meter, so you don't need to constantly check on your tama if you're busy and such. ~*~*~*~*~*~ iD L 26-09-2020 Before I went to bed last night, I quickly stopped by the Tamadepa to get a new seed for our backyard: It was so dark by then! This is a rare toy seed, which costs 200 gotchi points. It's always fun to see what products are available! You can purchase clothes and accessories at another store, of which I forgot the name of. Planting and watering! A little sprout blooms after you do so. Now all we had to do was wait until morning... 27-09-2020 ...And that brings us to today! ...Uh... London? But first, I had to wake up to this sight. London had seemingly gotten dirty overnight, which... well... I mean, it happens sometimes. I think. Of course, this is normal on the iD L, so she had a quick bath and was back to normal instantly! The bathroom as well?! I also neglected to mention that certain parts of the house can also get dirty, but luckily for us London inherited the cleaning tools from her previous generations (of which you can buy from the Tamadepa as well), so the bathroom was spotless in an instant! Clean as a sponge! Now was the perfect time to check on our seed, so we toddled off to the backyard... I should really start getting into gardening if my plants are able to give me things besides oxygen. ...and it successfully bloomed! We obtained a snowcone machine for our efforts - perfect for making sweet delights! What fruity treat will London concoct for us today? This wasn't one of London's Tamatomo items - this was actually my second time getting this item from this seed! -, but she enjoyed using it either way. That bowls' bigger than her! How is such a small machine capable of such feats... It doesn't turn into a food item to eat, unfortunately. London was feeling quite hungry, so we headed off to the bakery to chow down on something sweet. The moment of truth...?! We purchased a lovely little cake(?)... and London found herself really enjoying it. In fact, she enjoyed it so much that-- The beginning of great things to come! London's first Tamatomo Stamp! --It was revealed to be her first Tamatomo Stamp! Or, at least, the first one we obtained. A version of a song from the 2009 anime, 'Happy Happy Harmony', accompanies this lovely animation. And happy she was indeed! We headed off home to celebrate in our yellow submarine - of which I also forgot to mention, is an interior you can buy at the interior store! The default background is a more home-like setting. While we were settling back in, I checked London's stats and remembered that her happiness bar was now extended, with a cute little hot-pink bar to boot: She was still hungry, so I fed her a rice bowl. She was not happy. Our last event for today involved adopting a Tama pet! You can find them at the park every day, rotating every few hours or so in groups of three. Earlier in the morning, the vegetable market was being held, so we couldn't search for any cute companions at the time. After waiting for an hour or so, we met up with a familiar Tama pet: What a cutie! I think they're saying 'bagu'... as in bag. Woah. It's Bagubagutchi! In most Tamagotchi media, he's depicted as the Mame family pet, so it was more or less fate for he and London to meet - Chamametchi is a part of said family, after all. After three seperate meetings, he quickly grew attached to London, and we took him home. Now he too, can defy gravity with London. Amazing. Note the dog house that gets added to your home! So cute. I never thought of naming a Tama pet before, but I suddenly couldn't resist - we named him Liverpool! (ain't that something.) With the dynamic duo of London and Liverpool, as well as the former's first Tamatomo stamp in tow, we have since been relaxing for the rest of the day. What an eventful morning! I may update later if I find any more stamps... plus, we need to dig a new seed. Maybe a vegetable one this time! They're much cheaper than the toy seeds. Next post: The goal to obtain more Tamatomo stamps! London's new look? Liverpool digs a hole (or a pony), and fixes it later. I stop referencing things in favor of a readable blog.

    Other than the location, you won't miss out on anything. You can use the app to marry other characters (this way you don't need a second device). You can also use a program called MyMeets to create your own custom characters to marry. https://tamatown.com/downloads/ Someone also released a separate application that can unlock all locations on your device and can switch the twins feature on/off. www.etsy.com/shop/BoltersLaboratory

    At this point for me, it's less of a tradition to keep a log than it is to start one. Half of the posts on Tamatalk are just going to be all my unfinished logs! ;A; But not this time, my dear readers. For I have dug out a Tamagotchi version that is very special to me, and with... a lot of hesitation, actually, have started it up for the first time in what feels like forever! As the title may give away, I am running (and logging!) my pink iD L! Back when I first joined Tamatalk, these were very popular, and also everywhere unlike the listings you see today. I got both my iD Ls - the aforementioned pink version and my now-rare Princess Spacey ver - back in 2013 for less than $100 each, and I'm glad I did because nowadays, oh boy do you have to sell your own soul to get your hands on one mint in box. Of course, this comes with its own issues - being that I've had these for seven years now, they've accumulated a ton of scratches, which is where most of my hesitation comes from. For those who aren't in the know, colour Tamagotchis - particularly their screens - are highly prone to scratches if you're not careful, and they can show up real easily on the screen as these annoying rainbow-like textures. My 4U and m!xs have managed to stay safe, luckily, but my iD Ls and my precious little P's have not had the same luck nor fortune. And don't even get me started on their front faceplates - I'd be able to actually afford a mint iD L with the amount of scratches they have. However, it is all cosmetic in the end. And it's not like I'm ever getting a new iD L unless I risk it for a used version, so I may as well take you all down with me. I've got a Pac-Man Anniversary Mini/Nano in the mail right now as we speak, so with a little patience I'll hopefully be able to log it soon! Let's begin! ~*~*~*~*~*~ iD L I put some new batteries in a few days ago, and was welcomed by a little Kingyobotchi! For those not in the know, they are the best-care female toddler character on the iD L. I also discovered that my iD L was on its 3rd generation last time I played it - I had previously raised a Kikitchi and an Agetchi, respectively, both of which are bad-care adult characters. Determined to take good care of my next Tamagotchi, I proceeded to get the next highest-care teenager, Painaputchi - and didn't look at a growth chart, which is extremely rare for me! I ended up raising an adorable little Chamametchi: I forgot how photogenic the iD L was. You can't even see any of the scratches on it's screen! (While writing this, I realized I hadn't given Chamametchi a name yet! I searched up the nearest random name generator, and blessed her with the title of London.) While Chamametchi isn't the... highest care character out there, she's still very cute (and not a teen, strangely). I decided to go for her Tamatomo Stamps - for those who don't have an iD L, every adult 'gotchi has three special likes that cause them to do a cute little animation + give you what's dubbed a Tamatomo Stamp. You earn the last Tamatomo stamp by having your adult-stage Tamagotchi for 72 hours (or, at least 5 years old, if I recall correctly). You can earn any Tamatomo Stamp in any order, and they're a fun little incentive to spend more time with your tama! Plus, it also gets them stamped in the memory book (which is how I discovered the previous tamas I raised), as well as a bonus cutscene when they get married. Anyway, I decided to go for London's Tamatomo Stamps straight away! We decided to head to the park, as the market was currently being held: It's Kuchipatchi's mum! What she's doing here, I have no idea. Items at the market are usually marked down by 30%, so I wanted to get a good deal. I accidentally ended up leaving by way of the C button with London in tow. It was raining outside when I took this photo! Who knew Tamagotchi Planet had the same weather cycles... and timezone... wait a second. We decided to visit again later - for now, it was off to the TamaDepa to get something I thought London would like. The hunt for her Tamatomo stamps was on! I rarely search for these without consulting a guide, so there was an exciting factor to our adventure. I quickly swept into the accessories aisle, and bought London a pair of cat ears! It was time for the moment of truth... ...I mean, she's still happy at least? Unfortunately, it was not meant to be. If your Tamagotchi's latest item/accessory/food is Tamatomo-worthy, they'd usually start jumping high in the air with hearts everywhere! But London was quite mellow. She still defied gravity in her celebration, though. I didn't want to stop there, however - maybe an outfit was what London was looking for! We went back to the market again, as outfits can be super expensive: It's Makiko's mum! ...I just remembered that Makiko's name doesn't end in 'tchi'. I was running low on money, so we sold off the Tamamori Tree item I got out of the toy seed I planted in London's backyard yesterday. Don't ask. Anyway, we had enough money to buy London a lovely red kimono: I forgot how fun it was to dress up your tamas on the iD L... And thus the moment of truth began once again! Guess what happened next. ...And yet it also was not meant to be! Not only had I spent a ton of gotchi points on two outfits that weren't Tamatomo-worthy, now London looked like a weird anime character. She didn't seem to mind though. One last photo before the post gets too big... I decided to stop our Tamatomo hunting there for now. I took London to the different locations in the food menu, but none of the meals and snacks there seemed to activate a Tamatomo Stamp... not even the sweetest treats around! ...That, and it ended with me accidentally discovering Chamametchi's least favorite food. By then my pockets were totally empty. I'm sure I'm missing something here... maybe I should be more open to London's tastes and stop assuming that all she likes is pink stuff just by the colour of her ears? The irony is real. Next post: more stamp hunting! Meeting a Tama-pet at the park enough times to create a bond with them and take them home... I missed those guys on the 4U and m!x, they were useless but I loved them anyway!

    I know, right? There are so many little wrinkles to it that make it stand out from a lot of other versions, regardless of era, which is why it's my all-time joint-favourite version alongside the original Gen 1 pet. I've gotta second all of that.

    Hahah! I'm pretty sure I couldn't find a chart like that mostly because no one likes to see so many lines in one picture. LOG FOR DAY 15/11/2020 Today I tried to delve a little bit more into what Eternitchi has to offer. I gave a shot at every mini-game that increases the tamagotchi's stats. I already mentioned the Maths one so there's no point in speaking about it again obviously. So I immediately tried the artistry one; and honestly, I thought it was brilliant! The goal is to complete a gradient between 2 given colors by picking a 3rd color that goes in-between the other two. That's exactly the part of one's brain that's supposed to be working when doing actual art... I guess! Of course being more "left-brained" I had to find a trick to get the right answer systematically. It still requires some thinking, but basically the thinking boils down to doing math again so, that's more within my range. (I forgot to mention that I was finally able to enlarge the Eternitchi window. Good news is, that's solved. Bad news are, (there's 2), 1/ I have a dead key on my keyboard and 2/ the software I'm using for screenshots (Greenshot) is giving weird results. Please excuse the weird images) So there's the game; The next one I tried was the kindness one You have to keep watering the plants by clicking on them before they "slowly quickly wither and die" (Symphony X reference). After the brilliant idea of the last game, this one seems more simple by comparison. It still gets the job done though. Next up, the humour game. By now I was like, how in the world are you going to think of a mini-game that would raise a tamagotchi's "humour". Well, Poop comes out the toilet and you have to catch it using a broom and dust pan. Sometimes a golden poop flies out and you must not catch that one. Whoever thought of that is a genius. Then there's the Beauty game It's basically a memory game where you have to remember the pattern of faces and reproduce it afterwards. My trick is to just remember the colors of the faces and read them out loud. I personnally can NOT win if I don't do that. And finally there's the Passion game Scrub, scrub scrub. You have to clean the gym by repeatedly clicking on messy/dirty parts. I guess the Passionate part is that you have to be really passionate about such a boring task to keep at it... That's it for the stats-raising mini-games; next I attempted to play the cards game with Sanutchi's parents: Honestly I don't get it. Every other game has 1 or 2 sentences to explain how to play, but this one has this: I really don't understand what that means. Other than the fact that I only figured out how to use items today, and that I let Sanutchi play with a random Game Boy I don't remember buying, that's all for Eternitchi (That's exactly the face I was doing when playing the cards game XD ). Nothing much happened in Tamagotchi GB. Gaia went for another Beauty contest and won. The contestants were a Kusatchi and a Hashizoutchi that did mildly amusing faces, but not interesting enough to post them. I'm noticing Gaia's hearts are depleting faster, but it seems to affect the Hunger meter way more than the Happy meter. I think they really went ahead and actually implemented actual character traits to each character in the GB game. Compared to Hashizoutchi and Tentotchi (which was quite needy), I feel like Ginjirotchi tends to stay happy for way longer. @Penguin-keeper this game is so intricate and complex for a "spin-off" that was released only a few months after the original pet. (Actually I think these character traits are present even on the original toy now that I think about it, aren't they?) And finally a little progress in Matlab de Hakken (I'm keeping that name :lol: and I don't even know what "de Hakken" means XD ). What's new is that yesterday the tamagotchi opened its mouth but the burger would remain unchanged; now it actually gets eaten. And the tamagotchi also says no when it's full. There's soooo much more work to be done on this lol. That's all for today! Man these log entries are becoming longer and longer! Good night or day!

    Here's a Growth Chart I made for Tamagotchi GB. I didn't find any Tamagotchi GB growth chart on the net that really satisfied me so I decided to make my own. First on Tamatalk.com! And here are the characters I've obtained so far:

    Poor Gaia! I definitely have a bias with Pochitchi over Ginjirotchi - but I loved the little safari pose. ;w; You're doing great Gaia!! ;A; This looks so cool!!! I'm really excited to see where this goes!

    Oh my. It's proudly showing off its stinky feet. Haha, nice to see! The game does suggest (in very broken English) that the contest outcomes are influenced by how you've raised the Tamagotchi, so I guess that it makes sense that a better-care character has better odds of winning.

    Fairy ON Benrey evolved into an adult on the 7th and... Hmmm... I'm starting to notice a pattern here. This was one too many frosted Maskutchis for me, so I decided to quit running the ON after Benrey left. This opened up a spot for the newest addition: Magical Meets "New" may have been an overstatement, seeing as the Meets is the same as the ON, but I'm honestly not looking for much change here. I started the Meets a couple of hours after I stopped running the ON and I was greeted by twin boys, Bubby and Coomer (clearly on a HLVR:AI kick over here). They became adults yesterday and I plan on marrying one of them off after making this post. Technically, Bubby has already been married via the app a few times, but I've yet to find a permanent match. L.I.F.E. App Sam ended up dying on the 8th, so I've officially moved on to the second generation with a Tama named, Apple. Apple has already faired better than Sam because he evolved into a Tamatchi. I wonder if the app is as strict with care as the originals because I would love to raise a Mametchi. Also: Food for thought. And that's all! Pixel and Gus are still just chillin. Looking at this post and my last post, I realize that it may be confusing and difficult to understand which Tamagotchis are currently running. It's the P's (Gus), Pac-Man (Pixel), Meets (Bubby and Coomer), and L.I.F.E. App (Apple). I'm going to stop saying when I plan to update because that just doesn't pan out these days, so I'll see you guys next time!

    LOG for day 10/10/2020 Not much has happened today. Gaia has won a Racing tournament (on its first try!). I forgot to take a screenshot, so I later took this one just to have something to show. I hope the Beauty tournament will be just as easy.

    One last update today! My favorite V2, off white with pink hearts, turned into Mametchi! I’ve been wanting to see an old school Mametchi for awhile now! look at all that dust around the screen! I know what I’m doing later.

    Agh!!! Thank you so much!!! I’m going to do that after this run for sure! So, my Devil, who I’m naming Memnoch, finally made it through an entire day of work! I’m unfortunately having to lower his DP before going in, just to make sure he doesn’t go too high without me noticing too quickly. Right now, he’s watching the morning news with me, sitting at 70DP. He’s a devil zukitchi this time! I’ll have to make sure his DP is high the day he evolves. I’m pretty sure I’m off that day. My wondergarden ON turned into a Mametchi last night. I promptly got on the app to marry him away, just to start the mixing process. I found a very cute lady that looked like she was cosplaying Little Women. I wasn’t a huge fan, but I was so excited that someone proposed to Mametchi that I just said yes. I named her heart♥️tchi, and I do really like her toddler form. I hope more Mametchi genes come out as she grows, since her maternal gpa is also a Mametchi. I wanted to go see Hocus Pocus at the drive in theatre last night, but we were so sleepy when I got out of work that we just went home and had an existential crisis until midnight instead. But we have a three day weekend ahead of us and are going out of town for my moms birthday!

    ... aaaaaaand Tentotchi's gone! The day when I couldn't take care of it every single hour of the day has finally come. At around 11 AM it got hungry and bored and I couldn't take care of it and that was it! It was 22-yo. That's the all-time highest age for any virtual pet I've gotten so far. It summoned all of its remaining forces to lay an egg before passing away Here's its offspring: And here is its offspring being sent back home. I hope it'll survive the trip since I didn't feed it anything before putting it in the rocket! As already mentioned, I'm cutting down on the number of Tamagotchis I'm simultaneously raising. It'll make for a slower log but that will last longer too. For now I want to focus on Gaia on the GB game. After Gaia, I think I'll do another run of Tamagotchi 3 (dat 49 character chart is freaking exciting - and I need a break from Tamagotchi 2's "scratch the cards" game!). ------ Back to Gaia then! It's doing great! It actually won its first Knowledge tournament today! ...aaand that's all that happened today! ------ About the PS1 game (Hoshi de Hakken), I don't think I'll log about it because it cannot be treated as an actual Tamagotchi. Well, it can, but it's a lot more awkward to do so. For instance, to educate your pet you have take it to a carnival and make it play an intelligence-based game... But an in-game hour only takes about 1 or 2 real-life minutes which means that the ride to the carnival alone will end up taking an entire hour of your day. It doesn't feel true to a real Tamagotchi so I don't think I'm going to log about it for the time being. However I want to stress that I think it's an awesome Tamagotchi video game, way better than the N64 game with its Mario Party feel (and that's coming from a Nintendo fanboy!). You have to explore the map, find eggs, hatch them, take care of them, breed them, and collect all of them. Simple and to the point! ------ With Tentotchi gone and Gaia being in its final form, the pace of this log should slow down a bit, so expect shorter entries every day or days with no entries at all, but who knows!

    We have a limited amount of kb's because it costs money for the admin of TT. So I guess from now on you'll have to use an image hosting service.

    Well, it turned out that Tentotchi survived the "sleep by the poop" trial that had gotten 2 tamagotchis way younger than him. He's therefore 21-yo! I'm starting to think he's actually a cockroach in a ladybug disguise. Here he is happily gulping down his breakfast: I almost have to fill his happy and hungry meters every 30 in-game minutes! And that mini-game is soooooo boooooriiiiing. You have to scratch one card on each line and find the hearts. The good news is, if you find 3 hearts, the happy meter fills up with 3 hearts. The bad news is, the skull takes hearts away from the total AND from the meter if you only find the skull. So basically a play session can end up depleting your gotchi's happy hearts by one. Now I don't really have anything against the game being luck-based - in the end, all tamagotchi games that fill up the happy meter that I know of are luck-based - but if I'm not mistaken, the odds in this game are slightly against winning, AND the animations are a little slow and unskippable. This has made raising keeping Tentotchi alive an effective pain in the bum. Though to be fair, I'm happy to be able to say that I've beaten my best performance so far by a mile! I also was tempted to try this: (I really gotta stop starting new tamagotchis all the time lol). Beyond the GB games most of the Tamagotchi video games have nothing to do with raising Tamagotchis. This one though and the Sega Saturn "Tamagotchi Park", seem to have a gameplay similar to that of the GB games, so there's that. (For some reason I couldn't find the Saturn game anywhere online). So I thought I would give that a shot even though the game looks intimidatingly complex. Someone made a detailed guide on how to play the game with translations of the menus and all (link: https://neomametchi-logs.freeforums.net/thread/162/hoshi-de-hakken-tamagotchi-ps1), so that's cool; but still, at the moment I don't think it would be reasonable for me to indulge into one more time-eater. I'm going to have a lot of job to do these days... (The keywords being "at the moment" - I'm going through what you could label as the opposite of a hiatus, a "Tamagotchi Craze" these days. I'm wondering when it'll stop!) At 4 P.M, Gaia evolved from Tamatchi to Ginjirotchi: Honestly I feel kinda disappointed! I was sooo confident it was going to be a Mametchi and that I was taking perfect care of Gaia, I kinda feel a tiny bit upset. On the plus side, that means getting a Mametchi will be more of a challenge than I thought, and I like a good challenge! Besides, I think I like Ginjirotchi more as a character. When he's not fully happy he slides from left to right, sort of like moon-walking. Basically he slides on from left to right and right to left doing like this: ... and he looks so cool while doing it! He also completely collapses on the floor when he loses at a game, which is funny to watch: The tama bucket-list for the Tamagotchi GB version thus becomes: One more! ------ Apart from that, nothing much happened on the Masktchi front. I'm waiting for her to reach legal age to get married so that I can start a new character, hopefully taking better care of it.

    Welcome back everyone!!! Lots of things have once again happened! I'm getting rid of the use of dates as it's a bit too much to keep track of - totally on my part! Let's get logging! ~*~*~*~*~*~ iD L A few days ago, we discovered that the people we stole borrowed the yellow submarine from wanted it back, so we had to renovate. We chose the default room: I mean, Harry doesn't seem too bothered about it. It gave me a flush of nostalgia - this room hosts many happy memories from when I first got my iD L. From there on out, Harry obtained the rest of his stamps: Shhh, you're just seeing things, his happiness is totally full and I'm not neglectful in the slightest. Turns out Harry's Tamatomo accessory was the Afro item. I went through so many hats trying to figure out what he liked! Thank goodness for the evening market at the park, you can sell back your items/clothing/etc for a good price. Finally, his picture was saved in the memory book. If you get four Tamagotchis in the memory book, you unlock a new location to travel too! What location? It's a secret ...wait no don't search it up pl-- This isn't the memory book, he's attempting to make contact. Don't look into his eyes. Now that Harry was memorized probably forever, it was now time... for marriage. On the iD L, your 'gotchi can get married when it turns 5 (48 hours of being an adult), meaning you can marry them off before they can obtain their 72-hour stamp. However, this means they won't be memorized in the memory book > unlocking new locales > bonus cutscenes after the marriage/fireworks animation. Two out of three, folks. Anyway... marriage time. We headed down to the date place to score Harry a cool gal he can love forever. Ahh, to love young... and instantly, too. Woah. You can choose from three lucky(??) girls/boys when you get there, and we chose Watawatatchi! They fell in love instantly... aww. ;A; Now here's those bonus scenes I won't shut up about! Iconiiiiic. The fireworks appear even if you don't have all the stamps, don't worry (I think I'm the only one who's worried, actually). Look at those flowers. I never understood if they had noses or what. Anyway, check out the size of that ring! That could be a gaudy necklace on these guys. First, a date to the park! Then a proposal at the restaurant... this is still cute to me even seven years later. For those not in the know, TAMAX-TV is featured as a location in the 2009 anime, where the character Lovelitchi works as an idol! Then, finally, a date/honeymoon(?) at TAMAX-TV. Very cute indeed! I've always loved Gozarutchi's blushing sprite, it's so weird and over-the-top that it just circles back to cute. XD EGG!! Harry and Watawatatchi had a lovely baby girl! I named her Naru. This scene always makes me sad--! Finally, it was time for Harry to leave. He entrusted Naru with me, and after one more goodbye, left with his wife to live a new life back home. Let's wish Harry the best of success!! ;A; As I update this log, Naru has already become an adult! But before we focus on our lovely little gal... PM Nano Great news involving Astro! OH GOSH ASTRO LOOK OUT OH NO I finally got a photo of them being chased by a ghost attempting to bring the end of all wor-- Wait, hold on... Look at them go!. ...Here we are! Now this is great news: Astro evolved(???) into the secret character, Mametchi Riding Pac-Man! Which is a stupid name, but the implications of Mamepactchi is probably more horrifying. Anyway, it's not that hard for each of the tamas obtainable on this version to evolve into their Pac-Man riding alter-egos, and it barely took a few days before Astro gained permission to have a permanent piggyback. Aww. I really do love how Pac-Man is a surrogate father on this Tamagotchi, it's lovely! It's funny though, when your tama gets chased by a ghost as this form, they're still riding Pac-Man - but when you step in and stop it, it's only Pac-Man who's chasing the ghost! The happiness screen is still your tama on their own, so it's really just an idle sprite change. A bit disappointing, but the novelty is too stupid and fantastic to pass up at the same time. My favourite part of the Mametchi form is how they throw their hand up during their walking animation, as if they're riding Pac at a rodeo show! Go get 'em, Astro! iD L (again) Back to Naru: The lighting in this pic is really weird. The screen looks as if it's been submerged! We don't even have the submarine anymore! Soon after Harry was married off, Naru evolved into Rolltchi! The day after, she evolved into Hineonetchi, but I didn't get a picture of her in this form. I've been busy once more, so my poor iD L keeps getting neglected. ;w; Finally, this morning she evolved into: Nachuratchi! I don't think I've ever obtained her on the iD L, so I'm pretty happy to finally see a new face when possible. Her name also fits! Naru = Nachuratchi! Amazing. She's quite a cutie - look at that camera in her hair! Or is it a hat? That answer is soon to come, but first, I wanted to help her with her Tamatomo Stamps - and I wanted to do it as fast as possible. Lucky for us, it was quite easy getting three of her "item" stamps - and first was a snack at the bakery: Pie!!! Her little camera flashes when she's happy. Adorable--! It was an entire pie! I have no idea how she managed to eat it all, but she was happy in an instant, so there was no complaining from me. Next was an accessory! Naru and I purchased something from the Tamamori Shop I thought would look good on her: The only reason tamagotchis wear hats is so they can look taller, trust me. I know how it feels. And it did! I'd say the green messy 'do upon her head (as well as her camera) is her hair judging by this photo, as you can see the ends of it below the (admittedly-ugly, but don't tell Naru I said that) flower hat on top of her head. Though that doesn't solve the camera mystery - I'd have to put a tiara/a smaller accessory on her head in order to see, which I have no interest in doing because I am strictly against proving hypothesizes. (or something like that.) Now that Naru had two stamps, it was time for her final - so I took a chance and gave her a toy I'd grown out of a seed off-blog, the Ocarina! I am so sorry about the picture. And it worked - Naru loved it! Which I didn't expect at all! She played with servants of the Tamagotchi King, who are either all Zelda nerds or just really good at playing an instrument originating from Earth. Who knows. Look at that bar! Rejoice! All of Naru's three non-growth stamps had been obtained, and from what I recall under ten minutes as well! And I still had a ton of gotchi points left over - we had tried a few snacks before we found Naru's favourite. Now we're all caught-up! Naru and Astro are doing great, though I have no idea how long Astro's gonna be staying here for. I'm kind of neglecting them as we speak (I'm so sorry!) just to see what happens, as I've been quite attentive to them (as you most-likely know, Nanos are much easier to care for than iD Ls - being the smaller and extremely simplified version of the two) ever since I first got the Pac-Man Nano. I know there's a few endings to the PM Nano, so I'm just wondering what'll happen now that I've obtained arguably the best character on the version period. How exciting!! Next post: Naru goes to a concert - featuring a familiar music star from a previous log I did earlier in the year -, and proceeds to start an extremely-successful moshpit boycott once she learns photos are banned. Astro and their foster father also attend, and make the shocking discovery that the ghosts have given up their ghostly ways in favor of becoming back-up dancers. Flashbacks to the first Pac-Man World ensue.

    Well, apart from Birokutchi's death this morning, today was pretty calm. I introduced Gaia to Math tournaments. Of course, she failed. (I've read that they're bound to fail on their first trial - and yeah, she's a female all of a sudden, don't ask). She felt terrible about it! ... so I gave her her first cake ever since she was born to console her. And that's pretty much all that happened today. ------------ I'm also wondering whether I should log about this: I'm not constantly using my PC, but I've been raising this poor thing for about a month (yet it's only 5 days old lol). Reading others' logs made me interested in the latest Tamagotchi releases and I've realized how accurate this unofficial PC version was. I wish I could play this on my smartphone but there doesn't seem to be a simple way to do so. (I also wish I could make the screen bigger). Yes, I named her PoorGirl because I find it difficult to raise her correctly due to me often being AFK. Besides, I know nothing about how the more recent Tamagotchi releases operate and the game doesn't come with instructions. (I especially didn't understand how to use codes). Please let me know if you think I shoud cover this.

    I thought today would be a pretty uneventful day, Gaia was pretty calm during the whole day, but then it evolved into Tamatchi (aka Kirbytchi lol) at 7 PM. It surprised me because I always thought the Marutchi stage lasted 3 days. I like how it feels embarrassed when it gets answers correct Also, this is its "computing" face. Imagine a whole class doing weird faces such as this one when the teacher asks a question: Anyway, with the level of care I'm giving, I'm pretty sure I'm going to end up with Mametchi or Mimitchi. It's interesting how it kinda feels like getting the best characters seems easier than getting the bad or mediocre ones.

    A lot of things happened between last night and today! No cool paragraph to introduce you all (though I did purchase a new record today ), it's tama time! And a huge post to boot! Let's get logging! ~*~*~*~*~*~ iD L 02-10-2020 Harry evolved into the star-shaped teen, Bokuhoshitchi! I didn't get a photo of him during the day, however - it only takes the iD L another 24 hours until the teen stage is over. That night, as I mentioned before, I was caught up with a ton of stuff - and not only did I neglect Harry... I guess the shyness sorta fits. ...He evolved into Gozarutchi! Who is also the worst-care adult from Bokuhoshitchi's group. Oops. The lighting in these photos isn't too great, but I managed to take some time out to care for Harry. To celebrate, similar to London, we decided to go clothes shopping! That, and maybe we'd find a Tamatomo Stamp that way. I almost forgot to mention - remember the toy seed we planted a few posts ago? We ended up growing a cane! That's right, a golden cane with an adorable red ribbon. (I didn't get a photo of that.) It ended up chasing Harry around the house, and he was not happy: If you can't see it: The cane is top-right to the second window of the submarine. Harry is sulking in the left corner. Many magical items, like cards and roses (Tuxedo Mask??), followed the cane around as it chased poor Harry. He should be used to weird things like this! After all, he is... named after a fictional wizard. Anyway, back to the clothes shopping - we first got a graduation hat: The signs keep adding up. When did Harry graduate, anyway? It wasn't a Tamatomo item, but he liked it anyway. I think it's because it made him look tall... I also got him a cute little tux! Though you can barely see it thanks to the combination of lighting and Gozarutchi's outfit colour in general: He is a snazzy tama. I ended up removing the graduation cap - now he is just a fancy Gozarutchi. He is a snazzy tama who forgot to graduate. I decided that if it wasn't accessories, then the answer lied in food!! We decided to go out and treat ourselves. We went to the restaurant for a nice meal... and the first dish seemed to resonate with Harry a lot! Feet off the table! After the familiar tune kicked in, it was confirmed - this was Harry's first Tamatomo stamp. Harry looks a bit awkward next to that blindingly-happy flower. Nothing else of importance happened that night, and Harry went to bed happy as can be. 03-10-2020 Nothing much happened today with Harry either. I snapped a better picture of him in his tuxedo: The imagery - that, being a tuxedo-wearing ninja alien in-front of a yellow submarine - is unparalleled. I did pick up a new item for him this morning - that being the Ninja Scroll! A guaranteed second stamp for Harry was bound to come. Thus as follows: Magical... OH NO HARRY LOOK OUT As Harry began to unravel the scroll... suddenly, out of nowhere, shurikens started flying at him! He was freaking out, but then out of nowhere Kuinotchi appeared, cleaning the mess up alongside a tama I presume to be his sensei. With enough determination, Harry was able to avoid the ninja stars this time... by turning into a block of wood!!! Ninjas are weird, man. And everything was happy once again. Two stamps down - two more to go! PM Nano 02-10-2020 Yesterday... when all my troubles seemed so far away. Great song aside, Astro evolved! The first tama everyone will get on this version, I guarantee it. Astro is now Mametchi! I didn't actually get to witness their evolution, as I was caught up with other stuff, but I was pretty happy to see them bopping about as the famous Tamagotchi mascot. The ghosts keep coming by and asking them to join their forces against Pac-Man, but considering the latter practically raised them, Astro always ends up refusing. Then they chase them and it's annoying and I keep asking them to lock the Pac-Maze but they always forget! At least they're cute. I find it interesting how they used Mametchi's vintage sprites in combination with their close-up from the Connection models... though the V1 and V2 did the same, now that I think about it. I still think their main Connection sprite would've looked adorable, but it was definitely for nostalgia purposes, no doubt. Since when does Bandai ever acknowledge the best black and white tamas? (subjective, i love the vintages) 03-10-2020 Nothing else has really happened today. The ghosts keep door-knocking and threatening to bring the end of all worlds, but Pac-Man's not having any of it. I'll have to get a picture of it next time! When Pac-Man chases the pesky lil' ghost (I'd like to think Clyde, who forgot to leave the maze after-hours and just really wants some food. Poor Clyde...), the famous sound effect plays. But you have to catch the ghost chasing your tamagotchi in the act first - and it's only told to you visually, from what I know your tama does not beep for help. Be careful, Astro!! (spacey) m!x 02-10-2020 Lots of exciting things happened with Koko! Including, but not limited to, both her teen and adult stage evolutions! Here she is as a teen: Penguin child. It's Tororitchi! With a gaudy pair of Mame ears to boot. I may have changed the town theme, but those stupid ears just wouldn't go away. Like her mother before her, Koko was a social butterfly - her favourite place to hang was over in Berry Town! Building some cool buildings with building blocks. Let me have a boy already, I wanna get some gal features!!! Here she is with Decotchi! What cuties. She even met up with that weird squirrel guy who keeps pulling her out of the house to roast some cool Japanese foodstuffs: Wait, I thought Koko roasted him... All in all, an eventful time. And that's not all... 03-10-2020 Today, Koko evolved! And that town theme really did work, because... Bigger photos just for Koko + resolution's sake. She's literally just a blue Kuchipatchi! (paging an old TamaTalk user...) Her eyes don't seem to be related to any other previous tama in her family, so it's probably a 'default' trait that can be used in place of not really having a fitting set of eyes. Either way, the ears were demolished completely - Koko is a blue baby bean. And we all love her. Either way, poor Koko was being the most neglected out of all three over these past few days -- on the m!x, it's hard to keep your tama happy and look after at least two others. Sadly to say, I've taken the batteries out of the m!x as to lessen the load. It was a short romp, but it was fun to revisit one of my favourite versions. Who knows? Maybe one day we'll see Koko on this log again. For now, this blog remains the adventures of Harry and Astro, both on the opposite sides of the care spectrum. XD Will I stay true to the blog's title and keep the iD L running in future posts to come? Who knows. It's the excitement of never really knowing what's going to come next! Of course, that doesn't apply to this blog, because... Next post: The record that warbles in pitch! Astro gets caught in the rain. Harry auditions for a talent show and breaks a leg (tearing his precious tuxedo in the process).

    In Japan they are instead releasing the Tamagotchi Meets Sanrio DX Set, which is the same as the regular Meets Sanrio but in red colour and with an included lanyard.

    I totally forgot about obtaining them, which makes it even worse. XD The mother's eyes will haunt me forever... Just a quick part 1 of 2, because in a few hours I'll be receiving my Pac-Man Nano! Exciting times. Today's been quite mellow, although it's the 1st of October down where I am - first day of the month! Harry and Koko have been doing well, the latter having evolved a few minutes after I posted last night. More to come in her section, which will have dates for context's sake - for now, let's get logging! ~*~*~*~*~*~ iD L Harry is still a leafy boy, and I love him a lot. Although, I did have to wake up to this today: What spells has he been casting?? Similar to London just a few days ago, Harry had seemingly destroyed the entire house after throwing a preschool frat party the night before. We got to cleaning up, and after a quick bath Harry was raring to go! Vacuuming and flooding the bathroom, two things that should never be mixed. We decided to go to the park after. Remember how I mentioned it was the first of the month today? Well, that info came in handy - we unexpectedly met up with the Eco Triplets! These dudes are wicked about the environment. Have you picked up your trash today? I only thought these guys visited on the 10th and 20th of each month - I didn't think they visited on the 1st as well. They're all about cleaning the park, so we decided to help out, and got a special bag in return as seen in the photo! The Triplets can give you special items that allow you to save money at specific stores. This bag permanently affects everything available at the Tamadepa, making it so all items are marked down by 50%!!! To celebrate, we bought an electric guitar - Harry seemed to enjoy playing it a lot! Your tama takes the bag to the Tamadepa if you've obtained it! Do you think Harry wants to be up on-stage? If he becomes Kuromametchi, I guess it'd be a good fit for him... unless I'm just assuming things like I did with London, who was a pretty-in-pink Chamametchi. I really need to stop doing that! Either way, since our shopping budget was left with a whole bunch of wiggle-room now, we went back and picked up the ever-so present toy seed, which was now 100 gotchi points instead of 200. How handy! Do you think Harry would grow faster if I planted him instead...? It's been cloudy a lot on the iD L - it's currently very sunny where I am. As Harry was born super late into the evening, he should evolve by tomorrow morning - meaning we'll be "skipping" a day (as he'll be asleep by the time he evolves). Good luck, Harry!!! (spacey) m!x 30-09-2020 As said before, Koko evolved after I posted last. She is the spoon toddler (Tantotchi) as I speak, with the added bonus of Mametchi's ears. As our main town (the Tamadepa and Park are considered different settings to the locations you can visit) was currently set to the 'Tamatown' theme, Koko had a higher chance of inheriting her great-grandfather's Mame ears (as it's the place where you can meet Mametchi). On the m!x, if you play with an item from a location enough times, your main town will change it's aesthetic to a certain theme (for instance, it can change to a Berry Town theme from use of an item from Berry Town, or as said before, a Tamatown theme from use of an item from Tamatown). I later changed it to the Kuchi/Patchi Forest theme with the use of an item I bought over there, as to raise the chance of Koko obtaining more of her father (Kuchipatchi's) genes. Complex times! She is a true-blue cutie! Though something about her feels untrustworthy... I think it's her grandmother's ears... oh no... She moved out after that, bidding goodbye to her parents. We wish Sarah and Kuchipatchi the best of luck in their new and loving lives!!! After her sudden bout of independence, Koko instantly fell asleep. She'll probably evolve as Harry will, being that she'll evolve the next day due to being asleep when her time comes (though I think the m!x actually awakens when it's time to evolve, correct me if I'm wrong). ...Aaaaand that brings us to today! 1-10-2020 There's actually not that much to say about Koko. As I've already unlocked most of the locations on the m!x - much easier to do than the iD L -, the only thing we can really do is travel, meet new tamas, play with items, etc etc. There's no Eco Triplets on the m!x (), so nothing exciting was going on at the park. Nothing ever exciting happens at the park on this version, actually. That's one thing I miss, besides the lack of Tama-pets. Anyway, here's some photos of Koko I took: It looks like the first photo is looking at the second. Koko has become the first successful Tamagotchi clone. I will not be accepting questions at this time. Other than that, Koko is chilling with Harry as we speak. The most exciting thing on the m!x is, well, it's namesake. I guess that's not too bad of a sacrifice. Too bad they can't connect to the iD L - though the latter would probably explode just looking at the more high-res sprites present on the m!x and onwards due to their removal of the always-present icons. It looks so weird compared to the iD L!!! Next post: The Puck-Men rise! (...wait a second.) Harry discovers the truth behind the disappearance of the Eco Triplets, and Koko conducts a sinister master plan... what is it? We will truly never know.

    Thank you so much! I remember enjoying your own blogs way back when you were logging your own iD L, it's such a nostalgia capsule for me as well. Unfortunately, we have terrible news - I got busy, and I totally forgot about poor London and Liverpool. I didn't take a photo of it, but they have unfortunately left home. It is but a sad day, and it's only the third main post on this log! Things have not started well, that's for sure. XD Here's a picture I managed to take - we didn't find any more Tamatomo stamps, but London did earn her 72-hour one just the other day: Goodbye, London. Sorry I couldn't make you happy. But there's no time for moping! We've got a new generation to start! And I'm (hopefully) receiving my Pac-Man Tamagotchi next post, so there's no time to lose, lest our little newcomer grows lonely without a friend for company. Let's get logging! ~*~*~*~*~*~ iD L We have officially started a new generation - and it's a boy! I took a chance and named him Harry. I always thought this baby (Yurapatchi) looked like a coconut. Harry was a needy baby, but he meant well. That, and he could die without my supervision, and I'd rather he not die anyway. Go Harry! Eat that bowl of rice, plus the pickled plum and the entire bowl itse... oh no... Because London was already gone, Harry and I made the somewhat-morbid decision to sell off her clothing (what two pieces of it she had), as I had actually planned to do it before she left. The kimono was worth a lot, which makes me feel worse. It's Kikitchi's mum! ...wait, she's, like, rich! Why is she at this budget market? But hey, money's tight, and when the only way to obtain it is by playing repetitious and not-fun minigames (my younger self is screeching), you simply have to make-do. Storms' a brewin. Either way, Harry was a cutie as a baby - and he's even cuter as a toddler! Let's wish the best for our young wizard-- well, he's no Pottertchi, but he's trying his best. In the end, he became a Nannokitchi. Cool! Woah, woah, wait, this is an iD L blog! What's this below?! (spacey) m!x ...Okay, so the truth is, I had the iD L deactivated for an hour or so - London's departure kinda dampened my spirits. I put batteries in every single color of mine (one at a time, one at a time! I'm not insane, jeez) as to check on them (as all of them had previous save data) - I even activated my 4U for a second just to check on it, though I was quickly demotivated when I saw that it didn't count your generations, only the tamas you obtained previously. So I got out my two m!xs, my anniversary and my spacey. I love the m!x to death, and the last time I left these two they were also on the 3rd gen, with the parents being married over the devices. It was nice to see them again! In the end, I decided to just stick to my spacey, and revive the iD L. And here is where we met our lucky gal... Mamemimitchi! I started calling her Mimetchi, due to her resemblance to the aforementioned occupation. She even had the blush marks! But I'm quick to getting attached, so I started calling her Sarah. Sarah wasn't doing that well - on the m!x, your Tamagotchi will hide in the corner and cower if their happiness is low. It takes forever to raise their happiness on the m!x, so in the end I gave her a bunch of snacks. This is the only good thing getting rid of the weight stat did - it enables me to be a horrible guardian. Here's her descendants, plus a photo of her vibing in her backyard - the pink Memetchi/Mametchi hybrid is her mother, and the Tamagotchi I previously raised on this m!x! Her parents look like they're gonna sell me a bootleg tamagotchi while claiming it's a V5. Sarah was a social butterfly (visual pun intended) - and she even met up with-- --Sweet Loretta Martin! It's London! She's back! She's back! She's back to where she once belonged... (sometimes random Tamagotchis will eat with you if you go to the cafe.) At least we know she made it back safely. They enjoyed some lemon cake together, and I was too afraid to join them. Anyway, while Sarah may have been a social butterfly, she didn't have any friends in her friend book. Similar to the meets/ON, you get married on the m!x by creating relationships with NPC (non-"playable" character) Tamagotchis across the many different locations you can unlock. We did so with Kuchipatchi down at Patchi Forest! Unlike what i did with the iD L, I searched up what Kuchipatchi's favourite item was. There's no Tamatomo stamps on the m!x, though... which sucks. After meeting up with Kuchipatchi enough times, Sarah ended up catching feelings quicker than [insert terribly-written fictional relationship here]. She soon bought a proposal ring from the Tamadepa, and proposed to him -- and he accepted in a heartbeat!! Aaah, to love and to be loved. That surprise kiss, man... *sniff* The wedding was very nice - it only lasted for a minute or so, but it will forever remain in my heart... Iconic moments in Tamagotchi history, #1: the fireworks show. Not long after, Sarah and Kuchipatchi (that's a naming convention) had an adorable baby girl! She is a Kuchishimatchi (and that's a mouthful). I officially named her Koko. I cannot wait to see how Koko turns out. Those Kuchipatchi genes are going to create beautiful results. So, it seems we'll have three tamas on our hands! Harry, Koko, and our incoming Pac-Man friend will hopefully prove to be a steady trio. I did not expect to be running my spacey m!x, but here we are. I kinda wish Koko was a boy, just so she could marry Himespetchi, one of my favourite modern-era tamas! Oh well. Next post: Harry is a what?! Koko's dark past, plus the introduction of a new character, and a higher lighting budget. Black and white is nothing to mess with, kids.

    Some of the care criteria on the Tamagotchi Wiki isn't accurate, but I wonder if low skills points may actually be included in 'poor overall care' and thus low skill points might tip the teen evolution in the direction. Judging from the other things they have on that page, it looks like continued neglect is the only way to override the skill-point-determined outcomes so unless you neglect your tama, it wont affect what adult he becomes. In that way, the V4-V4.5 are very systematic versions which means they're both very forgiving and limited (I've seen other people taking about getting into a family group rut). I wouldn't worry about it unless you actually want to get someone in the universal group.

    I'm loving the log so far! You've made me very nostalgic for the iD L, especially since mine is also pink. Hopefully, the pursuit for the remaining happy stamps is going well.

    Thank you so much! The V4 is one of my absolute favorite versions, so I'm happy I've inspired you to run it. Tomorrow is *finally* my Friday, so now I have the time to post. Hopefully I won't have another seven day work week for a really long time... Without further ado, let's get to the update. Pac-Man Tamagotchi There's nothing new going on with the Pac-Man Tamagotchi because I decided to keep Mr. Jac after all. The reason I changed my mind is because the wiki page for the tama lists "departure" as a death option. I just wonder how long it takes to accumulate enough care mistakes... Entama Now most of the news I have to offer comes from the Entama. ら left his daughter on the 21st and I named her Nutmeg (which I'm not even going to bother showing my attempt to translate it.) She quickly evolved into a Memepetchi after an hour. Then she evolved to Young Memetchi on the 23rd/24th (can't remember) and into a Violetchi today. It's a little unfortunate though because I've already raised a Violetchi on this one. I think I want to stop running the Entama after this generation though because I miss out on a lot of the experience due to work and pausing. I never get any training calls and I hardly get to see the shopkeep. I'm thinking of bringing back the ON or at least something else that's a little more "independent". No Gus news, of course, so that brings the log to a close! It's been nice having my tamas around again, even if they barely get to be unpaused. I might do a weekend update (Monday/Tuesday for me), so I'll see you guys later.

    After having evolved into a Marutchi in between the last log entry and this one, Bimmy grew into a Tamatchi today. Tamatchi always amuses me because it looks like a badly-drawn Kirby. Tamagotchi GB's sports game only accentuates this further, with the character hopping between ledges in a hilariously-wonky-looking fashion. Unfortunately, a little while later, Bobbo passed on. I'll actually miss him (in as much as one can miss a fictional virtual alien creature from a simulation game), since my fondness for the Game Boy line means that I feel more of an attachment to this game and its creatures than I typically do with the dedicated virtual pet devices. Goodbye, Bobbo - it was a fun time. A nice touch is that Tamagotchi GB has a built-in memorial feature as part of its save-file, with spaces to save data about eight favourite Tamagotchis that you've raised. If you have a Tamagotchi in another room when the one in the first room passes on and you resume the game after the memorial screen without choosing to hatch another egg, you'll see that the first room is now empty. Though the same jolly music as before plays, it seems sad since now your Tamagotchi is no longer there with it. This game's emotional beats are very well-thought-out, I think. Meanwhile, Bimmy went on with his life, blissfully unaware of what had just transpired next door. Given what I noted above about Tamatchi looking like a badly-drawn Kirby, this picture entertains me more than it should. At one point, I briefly forgot the carrots-only rule that supposedly yields Mimitchi, and ended up feeding Bimmy a cake - hopefully that won't have a negative effect on the end-goal! Soon enough, the in-game night fell, and it was time for Bimmy to get some sleep - isn't he cute? Whilst it was fun raising two Tamagotchis at once for a while, I don't think that I'll do so again anytime soon, if ever, and I certainly don't plan to raise three at a time, either - it's just a bit too hectic for my liking, and I prefer the game's more chill nature when you're raising just one pet at a time. So, for now, it'll just be Bimmy, until his time is up. While I'm here, I just want to draw everybody's attention to @LucidLyes thread, "How to make Tamagotchi for Game Boy more like a real Tamagotchi", as it's a great effort at bringing more community attention to the game by providing a ruleset for playing it that puts it more in line with the dedicated virtual pet devices that run in real-time. If you're at all interested in Tamagotchi GB, I highly recommend checking it out!

    Hi everybody! So I've finally decided that this should be its own separate thread instead of it being intertwined with my log. The story is this: I used to have a P2 as a kid and I lost it, and I was really fascinated by Tamagotchis when that happened. It's now 20 years later and now I've become good enough at programming to actually program my own Tamagotchi app so I decided to try and do so. Plot twist: Upon finding Tamatalk and the Tamagotchi fandom.com pages, I started becoming interested in all the other vintage releases and the Connection series too, which I've never owned. (I still don't like the color Tamagotchis too much since I find the characters a little too cutsy and I feel like they all look alike. I think they're definitely aimed towards more of a female audience with less of emphasis on trying to provide "universal" characters. But that's not the point of this post.) This made me want to try to start my very own implementation, first of the P2, then of all of the other vintage releases, at least up to the V4. Now I know myself enough to know that the probability of me actually delivering on that promise is about the same as that of frogs raining on Jupiter, but I'm still going to give it a try! Here's how I've decided to go about it: *First, I'm going to finish my Matlab implementation of the P2 that's based on the Matlab command line (so pretty much useless for anyone except me (and other Matlab users of course)). I'm starting with Matlab only because it is by far the language I'm the most comfortable with. *Then, I'm going to program a Graphical User Interface for it and try to make it as a standalone program. By that point other users might be able to use it if they agree to install Matlab's MCR (which is freely downloadble). *After that I'll just go Mothra, Angel, Genjintch, and so on up to the V4. There might be some releases I might ignore, such as the TamaOtch, which I really don't find interesting. The only reason I think I might be able to do this is that I think once the P2 will be complete, then implementing the others shouldn't be too much of a hassle. It should only involve drawing new sprites and changing just a few basic things (I might be completely wrong about this - and I think I am). In the meantime, I'm also going to try to implement it on Android using a nice little app I found called APK builder. Basically it allows the user to program android apps directly from an android phone, without any need for Android Studio. I use it all the time when I'm commuting or just outside. It's pretty neat. Only weird thing is that it's not on PlayStore anymore and you can't even find it on other sites. And finally, I also thought of actually purchasing an Arduino card and a small screen and actually building myself an actual Tamagotchi. I'll be showing you all the process if I do so of course. From this point on, all the following posts are going to just be updates on the project, so stay tuned. I'll be doing this on my free time so expect hiatuses (?), disappearances, posts where there has only been very small improvements etc. Feel free to ask any questions about my implementation, in fact I'll be glad to share the code with anyone interested.

    Well, Marutchi's most recent appearance was on the 15th Anniversary iD L back in 2011, and Tonmarutchi was only on the P2 and GB games -- colour Tamagotchis nowadays commonly feature babies/toddlers/teens that are exclusive to their own versions, designed only to appear on that device and not at all simplistic in design either compared to the vintages/connections. Not even Tamatchi has been lucky enough to stay relevant! Sad times... That or you already know of this, and I'm just taking your last statement seriously. XD

    Quick progress report on Matlab de Hakken! I've implemented another food type (cake) and the Left/Right game. Still needs work though!

    Many congratulations! The screen being set in so deep on the Nanos really doesn't help this, does it? Have a fantastic, fantastic day! You've clearly got excellent taste in movies - and don't forget to watch The Castle of Cagliostro, too, if you've got it, since, even though it's technically not a Ghibli film, it was Hayao Miyazaki's movie debut. (Either dub is good. I prefer the 1992 Streamline Pictures dub, though I'm told that the 2000 Manga Entertainment one is great too.)

    Today's log entry is pretty empty Gaia went for a Racing tournament but lost to a Mimitchi. I restarted my Tamagotchi Classic app and am severely neglecting it. (I only restarted it to gather data for my Matlab de Hakken project). I didn't get to play Eternitchi at all I didn't get to work on my Matlab de Hakken project. I do have something to say about it though. Someone has said they were excited to see where I was going with it. My current goal is only to implement the Tamagotchi P1 or P2 as faithfully as possible. After that I'd like to implement all those other Tamagotchis that I didn't even know about until about a months ago. I've read a lot about the Vintage tamagotchis and the Tamagotchi Connection versions. I grew really fond of them by reading about them and watching videos, so I'm thinking if I can program some (or all) of them, it would be awesome. To do this however I'll need a lot of info about how exactly they behave, down to the detail. I was wondering if this sort of knowledge base exists somewhere, and if not I hope I'll find the missing info by asking you questions from time to time. Have a good day or night!

    Hey! I do find this really interesting and will definitely give it a shot. It's crunch time at work currently which is why I haven't logged yesterday but I'll download it as soon as things start to settle down. Thank you very much for the compliment! I hope I'll be able to keep it that way! LOG FOR DAY 13/10/2020: So today I decided to go for a Beauty contest once again. I think they're the most interesting because of the goofy faces the contestants do; and they're a way to see something else than your own Tamagotchi for a bit I thought Gaia had learnt from its mistakes about the weird safari pose... ... but it ended up earning it only 79 points! So the safari pose was actually better than this one in the jury's view! The next 2 contestants have also learned from their mistakes: This earned them a really high amount of points (Takotchi Kusatchi managed to earn 59 points!) Then came Gaia's arch nemesis Pochitchi... ... and thankfully it made the stupidest face one could do at a beauty contest. It only got 33 points. Handsome, pretentiously adorable Pochitchi just got beaten by 3 lower tier tamagotchis... Good! And so Gaia was happy again. That's all that happened yesterday. Even this contest I had to squeeze in within a few minutes of rest. I'm really giving Gaia average care since it's become the only tamagotchi I'm raising. Also, part of me is kind of eager for it to die so I can start something else (I'm of the opinion that Tamagotchis become boring when they reach adulthood. As a kid I used to draw these incredibly complex growth charts where the characters evolved something like 7 times and more, and each stage had even more possible characters than the previous one lol). I have not worked on my "Maturabutchi" (Matlabtchi :p ) project at all. Today's log should be a little longer since I had an evolution on Eternitchi. I'm also obviously going to give the PetHouse suggested by @Eggiweg a try. How can I possibly resist! That's all for now I think.

    I'm really fond of seeing the community's lesser-covered games getting logged, so I just wanted to second what Eggiweg said about Tamagotchi PC - I'll also be interested in seeing it whenever you have the time to add that into your log. It kind of reminds me of a Japanese Tamagotchi-like program for Windows 95, which did the rounds online in 1997, including within the English online fandom of that time, which as far as I can remember was called "Nest". Although that one was, of course, a lot simpler, since it was based on the original Tamagotchi devices. I would imagine that Nest has been lost to time at this point, though! EDIT: Hold the phone! Nest still exists!

    My Tentotchi's on the brink of death. Its 4 hearts are depleting in less than an hour, yet it's still hanging tight! He's 20-yo today which is the longest I've ever managed to keep a Tamagotchi. If I can avoid care mistakes for just 5 more days then I don't think it's impossible that I'll be able to reach the 25 yo limit... though I wonder how long a Tamagotchi can live on the GB games. Well, maybe I'll be able to find out!

    So Gaia was born at 10 A.M and at 4 P.M it evolved into Marutchi. I don't think there's a lot to comment about this.
