    Has anyone ever made their own custom shells? How did they turn out? I drew up these designs for shells I'd like to make one day! Im actually currently working on making the middle one right now, but its nowhere near done yet! :3

    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.

    Yeah, so, this is a new trademark that's just emerged: https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#details/designs/008272074-0001 I want to begin by making it quite clear that this has not been confirmed for a European market. The website that listed it is a European Union property office, but this does not indicate that the device will be releasing in Europe. In fact, some digging reveals that they've also listed several other versions that were all for the Japanese market. As such, I don't believe this will be an international release just yet. It's also been noted that Italian is listed as a language in the trademark - this is also true for the Japanese versions; it's only indicative of the fact that the trademark representative (Studio Torta) is an Italian company. I did some investigation into this to see what I could find and I ended up finding some interesting things, including more Tamagotchi trademarks from the same source. Firstly, I noticed that although this trademark only recently emerged, the trademark was first claimed in late August. This is also unique in the sense that it's the only one of these trademarks that lists the design trademark being trademarked before the device's release. The others all claimed the trademark before release but filed the design afterwards. We'll come back to this in a bit. Here's some more trademarks also listed by Bandai: Tamagotchi 4U https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#details/designs/002590554-0001 Filing date: 26/06/2014, though hints in anime as early as 03/04/2014 Announcement: 02/07/2014 Release: 27/09/2014 Tamagotchi M!x https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#details/designs/003404193-0001 Filing date: 05/04/2016 Announcement: 14/05/2016 Release: 16/07/2016 Tamagotchi Meets https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#details/designs/005887239-0001 Filing date: 27/06/2018 Announcement: 10/10/2018 (leaked on 08/08/2018) Release: 23/11/2018 Additional info: Also filed by Wiz Co Ltd Tamagotchi (2021 release) https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#details/designs/008272074-0001 Filing date: 27/08/2020 (Note though that this seems to be for the patent claim and not the document filing) Announcement: ??/??/202? Release: ??/??/2021 Additional info: Not filed by Wiz Co Ltd There's been some speculation that this one could be another Meets / On release - the lack of Wiz Co suggests to me that it's definitely a new version. Taking these dates into account, and considering that the new release was first filed several months ago, I'm predicting an announcement in the next few weeks - either later this month or early-mid January. Then we're probably set for a March release date, which coincides with the 17th anniversary of the Connection. So I guess I'll call it now and say I think it'll release March 20th 2021. Some further digging for design trademarks reveals that there are more Bandai trademarks listed under a different organisation name: Entama https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#details/designs/000455548-0001 https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#details/designs/000455548-0002 Filing date: 15/09/2005 Release: 23/11/2005 Two months between trademark and release Uratama https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#details/designs/000622576-0001 Filing date: 17/05/2006 Release: 22/07/2006 Two months between trademark and release Tamasuku https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#details/designs/000660626-0001 Filing date: 03/08/2006 Release: 23/11/2006 Nearly four months between trademark and release TMGC+C https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#details/designs/001071831-0001 Filing date: 23/07/2008 Release: 22/11/2008 Four months between trademark and release Tama-Go https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#details/designs/001196851-0001 Filing date: 30/09/2009 (trademark claimed) / 18/02/2010 (design filed) Announcement: 22/03/2010 Release: ??/08/2010 They really strung this one out for some reason, but again the time between filing and announcement actually roughly matches the time between the announcement and the release Here's something curious - the only international model here was one with a particularly long cycle, and another case of the design patent being out before the release or the announcement, unlike the Japanese models. It's been nearly four months since the new version first had its trademark claimed, so about 3-4 months until release makes sense, but I'll note that this is much more in line with the Tama-Go than with any of the Japanese versions. Maybe a hint at an international release after all? But we'll see. Either way it looks like it's still around a month before an announcement and probably three months before release.

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

    For a few months now I've been working on projects outside of Tamagotchi and so I haven't really been thinking about Tamagotchi a great deal. One thing that always pulls me back, though? Tamatown. Cracking passwords was so 2019. Let's take a look at what made Tamatown what it was, and where it is today. For the purposes of this post I'll mainly be covering the V3/4 Tamatowns since that's where most is lost, but I will be covering other Tamatown variants in upcoming posts. I'm sure I don't really need to introduce Tamatown to many of the users here, but perhaps it would be worth some context regardless. What was Tamatown? Tamatown was an online Flash game first launched in 2006 alongside the Tamagotchi Connection V3. Future Tamagotchi versions would also get their own respective "Tamatowns", with the V4 version being an updated variant of the V3 Tamatown, the V5 Tamatown being an entirely different game called the "Tama and Earth Expo" and the Music Star Tamatown being a mass-multiplayer online game called Music City. Music City later got renamed to "Tamatown" once again upon the release of the Tamatown Tama-Go. The Japanese versions also received their own versions of Tamatown. The Entama, released in 2005, had a game similar to Tamatown V3 often called e-Tamago. The Uratama had a variant of this website called "Uratamatown", and the Tamasuku had its own online world, too. Many of the games on the international sites were translations of games from the Japanese site. What happened to Tamatown? Beginning in 2012, the Tamatown servers started to faulter and die. People found that the website had been down for months with apparently no recovery in sight. This was confirmed to be the case in February 2013 when it was officially confirmed that all versions of Tamatown would be going down for good. The only remnant of Tamatown that was left was a game on new.tamatown.com replacing Music City - a language selection screen. Selecting English or Spanish would take you to the shutdown page, while clicking Portuguese would... uh, take you to a Portuguese translation of one of the games. I don't know why. I'm assuming the Tama-Go still had a market presence in Brazil or something. The V3 and V4 Tamatowns actually stayed up for quite a bit longer in Europe. They would eventually shut down on the European website some time in June - July 2013. That extra time allowed some of the files to be archived... but not many. Where was Tamatown? This might seem like a silly question. Clearly, Tamatown was found on tamatown.com, right? Curiously, there were actually multiple different domains that Tamatown occupied, and all of them have to be checked in order to comprehensively search for the files. European regions used www.tamagotchieurope.com, but the truth is that there was actually a second address - www.tamagotchi.eu. If you go to that address now - as of writing this post - you still get the thank you message that was left behind when the site shut down. The US is a slightly more complicated case: The site originally started at both www.tamatown.com and www.tamagotchitown.com When the V4 came along the two Tamatown versions were split off into v3.tamatown.com and v4.tamatown.com The V6/7 Tamatown used the amusing address new.tamatown.com After it shutdown, what was left was moved to bandai.com/tamagotchi/new Being an international version, the V5 Tamatown was stored at a different address, too. What remains of Tamatown? Sadly, not a lot. Here's a list of the most important Tamatown files (swf and mp3) for which we have some archived record of on the Wayback Machine, for the V3/4 Tamatowns: File Version Language Notes Archive Link tama_shell.swf V3 US Loader.

Link mall.mp3 V3/4 - Mall music. Link A few of these files are actually available in multiple versions! Some might be identical though, I've not fully checked yet. I do know for a fact that the Tamatown theme uses an identical file across both versions of the site so I'm assuming the rest of the audio files do too. These files were recovered across several different variants of the site so it's a bit patchwork in places. If one were to reconstruct Tamatown as several have done in the past, they'd find that one minute everything is in English and the next minute they're in a German shopping mall. And entering the clothes shop is strictly forbidden.A few of these files are It should be noted that the Japanese sites, including the V5 website, are significantly better archived to the extent that they can be almost entirely recovered. Some of the games are close matches for the English games, too. What is lost? A lot. A lot. So much.

This may not even be all the lost files. I've only listed files that were known to exist here. There is almost certainly more. The ones marked in purple are files that I'm not even sure existed in the first place since there's far too little that is still known. On top of these there's a tonne of lost character swfs that would've been used to display different characters. I won't list them here because there's hundreds of them spanning across each Tamatown version. There's also a countless number of versions for each swf file - updates, alternate language versions, low bandwidth versions and the like. What about those Tamatown revivals? Some confusion I've seen with regard to Tamatown is the extent to which they can be "revived". Certainly, there's been attempts at reviving the site in the past, and some of them were pretty good - what people often misunderstand, though, is that none of these revivals were able to recover anything that was already lost. Tama-Palace in particular wrote several articles hyping up loociano's revival as though it'd only be a matter of weeks before Tamatown was completely up any running again, but the fact of the matter was that the only files he was hosting were ones that had already been archived. There has been some luck in replacing the lost games with ones from the Japanese sites but... they're not exactly the same? There's missing music, missing functionality and a number of locations were never on the Japanese sites. Essentially, attempting to truly revive Tamatown would mean finding a way to recover the lost files. Where do we go from here? I think there's three main approaches that we can take to archiving the history of Tamatown, and none of them are going to be particularly easy. Web archives All the Tamatown files from the domains I mentioned above have been covered, and as far as I know, there aren't any more. If other archiving sites were around back then and they've made their own archives, then we may get lucky, but as far as I can tell the only archives that exist are the ones we're aware of. Essentially, I wouldn't waste time looking for more archived files online. They just aren't out there. Saved files One obvious way to approach the matter is just to find people that actually saved some of the Tamatown files. Problem is, not only are these people already few and far between, but they would've saved them on computers they owned around a decade ago if not longer - computers that may not even exist anymore, let alone work - and these people are most likely not into Tamagotchi anymore, and certainly aren't lurking on a forum site they might have considered frequenting 14 years ago. What is known, though, is that there are people who downloaded some of the files. While I'm not so sure how many people would've downloaded the swf files, there certainly was discussion about some of the character swfs from later Tamatown variants and also how to download the music from the site. It is entirely possible that a good number of people would have done that back in the day, so if anyone reading this post just happened to have downloaded any of the music files from that era (or, indeed, the swfs) then perhaps you might want to seek out those files. Cached files A last ditch effort which I've heard might be effective is looking in old PC cache data to find the missing files. Some versions of Internet Explorer had a habit of not clearing their "Temporary Internet Files" folder so it would get crammed full of junk from tonnes of websites. Allegedly swf and mp3 files were amongst those that would've been cached. Making life a little bit harder, these files wouldn't have been named correctly (and likely had seemingly random filenames) and may have even had their file extensions totally removed, too. I wasn't aware of this when I looked through an old PC for these files before, so I may just have to look again. In essence? One potential solution would be to dig out an old PC that used Internet Explorer to access the website a number of times, find the Temporary Internet Files folder (I may provide a better tutorial of how to do this in the future because I recall guides online not being all that helpful, you may have to go to the folder directly instead of by moving through different folders. I think there may be multiple folders with this name, too.), copy its content elsewhere and try changing the extensions of extensionless files to mp3 or swf to see how programs that can run these file formats interact with them and determining if any are the lost Tamatown files. What exactly is my point in posting this? I don't know, something between heightening awareness and calling to action, I suppose. I truly believe it's possible to recover at least some of the lost files, so I think broadening the range of people that know how to help can only be a positive thing. I'll continue to post updates and findings as they come and - in the event I do find anything - I will of course be archiving the materials and putting it all here. If anyone would like to help in this endeavour - even if it ends up being fruitless - sharing it with other people that used Tamatown during its height would be extremely helpful. And if you're a bit techy and still own any of those old PCs you once played Tamatown on, then hopefully I've given you something to do whilst bored in lockdown

    And here's today's update: As you can see, I've added the icons, but only the food and game icon work so far. Also, shirobabytchi actually walks left and right on the screen, rising up and ducking down as the original does. I'm not sure if there's a pattern to its movements, I just made it go randomly from left to right, which admittedly gives weird results when it reaches the screen's limits. I've also added many sounds and made the existing ones more faithful to the original. I think I did a pretty good job on the happy sound effect, it's so satisfying to hear it (for me at least). I'm progressively getting rid of the text-based aspect. Now I'm mostly using just 3 keys. Since it's a command line program you have to input a button and hit enter each time, but this will stop being a problem as soon as I implement this as a Graphical Interface. I mostly did this to be completely done with the Food menu. As you can see, it's 100% complete and operational. Well, I didn't show it saying "no" when you feed it 5 times, but you know from previous entries that it does. Also, this brings this project one step closer to being a GUI, so that's cool. You might have noticed a glitch when I try to enter the food menu. I don't know why it does that and don't think it's necessary to correct this behavior at this point. In the end, I'm pretty sure it's either something very easy to correct, or it has to do with how I'm handling time, which is bound to change. Even though I said I planned to first completely finish the project and then make it into a GUI, it doesn't have to wait until that point honestly. In fact, I really want to start he GUI right now while the code is still relatively manageable because this will make it feel more like an actual program (and tamagotchi). Besides, I'm getting tired of having to hit enter every time I push a button. Doing this is really showing me how complex Tamagotchis are, even the very first P1 version! I mean, here I am with Matlab, in 2020, trying to rebuild a toy that used LR batteries and a 4-bit processor! I always thought building a Tamagotchi was a pretty straightforward task, and to some extent I still think it is, but for 1996 and very limited hardware, it's incredibly complex and really deserving of all the praise and success it got! (By the way, I like how even my incomplete, basic tamagotchi rip-off is still better than the Bunny-ROM!) Good day or night!

    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! `

    Tamagotchi Boom: Rise of Lyrictchi They’re aliens. New characters should be less humanoid, not more humanoid. It’s been too long since they’ve introduced a proper non-humanoid adult like Zuccitchi.

    Back in the 1990s, I collected LCD game-watches and character-themed digital watches, and I always dreamed of buying a watch-format Tamagotchi to go with them. Though other competing brands offered watch virtual pets, Bandai did not - they only licensed out the Tamagotchi livery for use on themed versions of standard analogue and digital watches. So, 23 years later, I've decided to make my own; Presenting the "Tamawatchi"! Though the name "Tamawatchi" was officially used for a line of Tamagotchi-themed non-virtual pet watches in, I believe, the Connection era, back in 1997 I always imagined it as the name that they would use for a watch version of the iconic virtual pet. Since this was based on an imagined product from my childhood, I specifically wanted a very 1990s look for this project, so that it would fit in with the watches that I have from that era. So, I purchased the newly-released bright-green Neon Tamagotchi Original Gen 1 and a dark-green fabric watch-strap on Amazon UK, since the two combined gave me exactly the look that I wanted. As with my "Tamagotchi Pinny" custom project, I attached brooch-bars to the back of the device using Gorilla Super Glue. Since I've got past experience now, the back of this one looks a lot tidier - not that it matters too much, since it won't be seen when it's in use. I used three brooch-bars so as to evenly distribute the weight of the device when it's attached to its strap (two are on the battery-door, and one is at the top of the device itself), although unlike the Tamagotchi Pinny, the Tamawatchi is a bit too heavy to wear as a pin. Also, unfortunately, for this project, I had to remove the iconic ball-chain, because on a watch it would just get in the way! There are better ways of making a Tamagotchi into a watch, but since I handle my things carefully, this quick-and-easy method will hold up just fine for my use-case. Here's the Tamawatchi with a 1990s Tamagotchi Fantasy Dome bubble-watch. The Tamawatchi doesn't look especially out-of-place, which I'm happy about. If Bandai ever makes an official watch-format Tamagotchi, I'll be right there pre-ordering one at the earliest opportunity, but for now, at least I finally have some semblance of the "Tamawatchi" that I always wanted to own.

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

    So...Some of you asked me what is going to happen to the https://alexgtama.tk and http://famita.ml TamaTown sites after Flash Player reaches its End of Life (December 31st 2020). @SilicaAndPina and I have decided that the sites will NOT be discontinued and instead they will run on the standalone version of Adobe Flash Player (Adobe Flash Projector). As some of you already know, there is a project being developed to put Adobe Flash Player back on the internet (http://ruffle.rs). So, because it is under active development and its not stable, we have decided that we should wait for a stable version to be released and then implement on our sites (although @SilicaAndPina has already implemented it separately on the V5 TamaTown just for the sake of it). Further instructions regarding the use of Flash Player Projector will be provided at the end of December. We will not allow TamaTown to die so easily. We have done so for years and we will continue! We are as excited as you are! See you soon! Stay safe!

    Hey guys! The long-anticipated moment has arrived.. I got my very first Tamagotchi! It is the Magic White version of the Tamagotchi ON. So in this log, I won't be posting pics, sadly. LET THE LOG COMMENCE! Friday, 27/11/2020. I started up my new Tama, filled in everything, and got ready for my egg to hatch! It hatched into.. a girl, which my dad named Daisy. I took care of it, then it took a nap for, like 3 minutes. I woke up the screen to see that it had pooped on the spot. Not long after, it had evolved into Chiroritchi, a good care character! So I immediately got to getting out and earning gotchi points. That's it for now, see ya next time! >w<

    11/17/20 is when I found my 2 tamagotchis while I was cleaning my closet. I'm currently in college but no one's too old to start playing with these again 😂 Their names are Emily and Jane, still pretty young as they only hatched yesterday. I'm hoping I don't get busy and forget. Although I have lots of real pets, I'm sure I have time to look after Emily and Jane 😅 I had these since I was around 8-9 yrs old. Had no batteries so I bought 2 of them yesterday. Luckily they're past their 'new born stage' before I slept so they don't end up starving overnight. I remember just going to sleep after they hatched and fed them and they started making noises. Kept me up at night as a kid lmao. I planned on getting the Tamagotchi ON but those could wait. Just so much nostalgia playing with the old version I had since I was a kid. https://imgur.com/a/WCxt8bu https://imgur.com/a/kUWIVPq

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

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

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

    Bulbtchi and Nijifuwatchi had twin girls, who I named Flufftchi and Fuzzchi, in the hope that they would inherit some traits from their mother. The result was... Fluffy-faced flying monkeys! Flufftchi and Fuzztchi, who are the 5th generation, inherited Gozarutchi's cream colour from all the way back in generation 1, along with their mother's wings and body-type, and her fluffy facial-features. Fuzztchi just got married to Unipegasatchi, and they had a daughter called Unifuwatchi (I couldn't think of a name for this one, so I just went with the default ). I'll most likely update again once she's all grown up, unless I decide to play with a colour-change before then.

    You got me, I'm a big Fire Emblem fan! Other names I've used include Celica, Chrom, Saizo, and Selkie, just to name a few. I haven't finished Three Houses yet, but the Golden Deer are my favorites (and Hilda is a powerhouse). I don't think I'm doing the classroom part right, but I'm trying my best to figure it out. Fairy ON Speaking of Hilda and Marianne, they evolved this morning! They've inherited their mom's fruit and their dad's fancy ribbons. Speaking of their dad, I noticed something odd when I went onto the app yesterday. He's definitely pink here... ...but he wasn't pink when my last Tama married him. I assume the other person said yes to my proposal, but rejected the egg on their end and then changed their color. It's just strange to me that the family tree on the app updated even though I never interacted with them after that. Marianne has been pink since she was a toddler though... coincidence? Maybe, but I think it would be funny if Hilda took after her father's original color and Marianne just so happened to take after his new one. It would have made way more sense for Hilda to have turned pink due to her namesake, but oh well... V4 @Maria&Co. must have bless Ame's genes because... HE EVOLVED INTO A MAME TEEN!🙌 I swear I rarely have have this kind of luck with Puchitchi, but it's a welcomed surprise. Now apparently, some people have had their teens switch families. It's super unlikely and what I can only assume is from bad luck at that point, but I'm going to be cautious and evolve him into a Mametchi. Only the most Mame of the Mame family bloodline is allowed around here. In order to achieve that goal, I've enrolled him in Mr. Turtlepedia's class. Maybe I'll even evolve him into Tensaitchi, but I make no promises there. And that's all for now! I've got no Gus updates, he's just chillin'. Tomorrow the twins should evolve and I'll likely marry them when that happens. I used to keep my M!x/Meets/ON characters for a little after they evolved, but now I prefer to marry them off ASAP to see the next cute characters I get. See you all soon.~

    When your Tama is a baby you can't travel anywhere. You have to wait an hour or so for it to grow into its child stage and then you can visit other places. As for the other locations where is what you need to do to unlock all the areas. Tama Hotel: Travel anywhere (Park or Department Store found in the door icon on left hand side on the lower row that says "Explore my Town") during the child stage. Food Town: Eat Rice Omelet 5 times at the restaurant (found in the feeding icon shape like a fork and knife). Tama Farm: Visit Food Town several times (keep visiting and it will eventually unlock) Toy Land: You need to be at generation 2 or higher and have your Tama at the adult stage. Buy the drum accessory at the department store (found in the same door icon mentioned for the instructions of Tama Hotel) and put it on, the location will unlock. Starry Sky Lab: Requires your Tama to be generation 2 or more but they can be any stage (child, teen, adult). Go to the department store and buy the starry sky wall paper. Then go out to your yard at 7pm and the location will unlock. Beauty Salon: Change the color of your Tama 2 times. This can be done by feeding your Tama certain foods 5 times in a row. Such foods include stew or rice omelet from the restaurant or cabbage from Tama Farm. Magic Town/Fairy Land: Requires your Tama be generation 3 or higher. This depends on the version of your Tama. If you have a magic version buy the Magic wall paper at the department store then go to the yard at 7pm. If you have the fairy version buy the Dreamy wallpaper and go to the yard at 7am. Tama Sports Plaza: Play with the ball when the Tama is a child or older and connect your ON with two other ON units. You can bypass this a bit by having another ON. Take the ON you want to unlock the location on, and a spare ON. Connect the two together. Then reset the spare using the reset button on the back. Then connect the two again and the location will unlock on the ON you want to open the location on.

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

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

    So this morning my Hashizoutchi died at 18 years old. It was the longest that I've managed to keep a Tamagotchi ever as far as I can remember. It was on the Tamagotchi Game Boy game, on which I'm playing what I decided to label the "PoorBoy's Tamagotchi". The rules are that you can only take care of your Tamagotchi if the in-game clock matches your real-life clock. I've made a post about it here: https://www.tamatalk.com/IB/topic/199133-how-to-make-tamagotchi-for-game-boy-more-like-a-real-tamagotchi/ Upon its death I was labeled a genius by some stranger aliens who took Venus to their home planet. Apparently they have the ability to revive dead Tamagotchi so Venus was revived and made an Honorary Member of... something lol. They dressed him up weidly and that's last time I saw him. So as promised, here is my log (@Penguin-keeper) . I'll be covering mostly the 3 Tamagotchi games on Game Boy. I'll be trying to get every character in every game, which I'm sure will keep me occupied for a long time. I'll also mix in some Android virtual pet apps so that the log will hopefully remain fresh and interesting. I'm starting with Tamagotchi 1 on GB, since for the time being it's my favourite of the 3 Game Boy games. As you can see I've already picked 4 of the eggs, with Venus being the 4th. It's time to hatch that green one which I'll be naming Gaia (I'm uninspiringly naming them after planets, before Venus was Mercury). I wonder what happens when you hatch all the eggs and the last one dies, there has to be a cinematic or something, we'll see. So here is Gaia. Since I've been raising Tamagotchis since a very long time and know all the rules, I'm adding myself a new rule to spice things up: for this run, I'm not allowed to check Gaia's stats apart from its age and weight. In real life, your pet or kid doesn't have a hungry and happy meter, you have to guess how it's feeling. I've also decided thar Gaia will be a nerd, I'm only going to give it Math training. The only exercise it will be doing will be to maintain its weight. We'll see how it'll grow up and how long it'll live with this education. I think that's all for today, I'll try to post everyday if my schedule allows.

    Oh, duh! Why didn't I think to look for that? Answered all my questions. It seems it runs on a real-time clock, and approx 24 hrs = a year as usual. I was able to find a growth chart on the last page. Looks like you get the baby from either generation at random. I'll just drop the link here for anyone that comes in the thread looking for it: https://archive.org/details/manual-tamagotchi-win95/mode/1up

    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.)

    ... 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!

    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.

    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.

    Felt kinda weird liking the above two comments. Anyway, I'm glad the mystery is solved and yeah, from my experience with the Tamagotchi Gameboy, weight seemed to be really important so I'm not surprised snacks have a higher penalty. I haven't run it that much - since it's not a background device - but it seemed allot more stricter than a regular tama, although time can be slowed down if needed. I still wonder why on earth they didn't fix the math minigame with its terrible controls. Perhaps you're only supposed to direct the tama when it is moving near a card instead of when the next round has started, but I never had the instructions and the in-game ones are unhelpfully hilarious. More like a sign of when someone has way too much time on his hands (likely a him). I'm okay with black humor but I draw the line at death and corrupting innocence (in regards to harming children's toys and the like). On a lighter note, I find it rather amusing that since me and Joc bantered so much on weight this topic has practically turn into that. And the original poster hasn't said anything yet XD

    Hello, and welcome to my Morino log! Now, I REALLY like bugs, ESPECIALLY Stag Beetles, or really anything with a horn/pincer. I also just like most bugs in general. After finding a Tamagotchi thats ALL about bugs, I knew I had to get it. The only thing that comes this close to my love of bugs is Fish. In this log, I plan to: Run the Polka Dot egg to get a feel for how this Tamagotchi plays. Run the White egg several times after the Polka Dot egg, and see who I get. Discuss how I got specific outcomes to the best of my ability. Talk about new features the Morino has, and differences it has from other vintage Tamas the best I can. With introductions out of the way, I hope you all enjoy this log of the Japan exclusive, Morino Tamagotch!

    Hey! Sorry I haven't done an update in a while, I've been pretty busy with things haha. Enough about me though, because a few days ago on Monday at 8:33PM, Kabutotchi emerged from the cocoon! He looks so COOOOOOOL!!!!!!!! Like I've stated several times before, I LOVE Rhino Beetles/Stag Beetles, so Kabutotchi is immediately my FAVORITE outcome on the Morino due to that. Ok, enough about me gushing over my favorite bugs, lets move onto another feature of the Morino... The Length Screen! This screen shows up as the 4th page on the status menu once you get Kabutotchi, and is exclusive to him! (As far as I know, at least) I'm not sure on how you make it go up. My guess is that it's tied to both how much he eats, and how old he gets, but I could be wrong. I don't think there's any incentive to increase his length either, I think its more of a "High Score" thing to compete with your friends, and to have bragging rights if you get yours to be really long or something. Also, have this picture of Kabutotchi sleeping! Look at him, hes using a LEAF as a blanket! its so CUTE! Well, aside from that, not much as happened, especially since I've had him paused due to me being busy. However I shouldn't be as busy for a while, so he shouldn't have to be paused much anymore! It might be a few days until the next update, it sucks to leave you guys again for a few days, but oh well, there's not much I can talk about when hes an adult lol So, I'll see you guys in a few days if anything happens! Expect the White Egg soon as well!

    At around 10:15PM, something finally happened! My Tama turned into a cocoon! So, I kept him with me all day, but I never heard the music that plays when a Tama evolves. The sound on this has been pretty low as well, and it's really bugging me. I don't know if its a battery problem, a problem with my unit, or some other third thing. In my next run I'll replace the batteries just to be safe, and hopefully that fixes it. When your Tama turns into a cocoon, the status screen shows this instead of the usual meters, age, and weight: The Temperature Screen! Pushing the A button changes which way the arrow is facing, and the other 2 buttons just take you back to your cocoon. My theory is that over time, it slowly gets hotter or colder (depending on where the arrow is facing), and you have to check in every few hours to make sure it doesnt get TOO hot or cold. I always thought you'd push the B button and it would change instantly, but I guess I was wrong Since this is the polka dot egg, we're destined to get Kabutotchi within the next 24 hours. I wont spend too much time with Kabutotchi, as much as I love Rhino Beetles, I really want to see the other Tamas in this version! I'll stick with Kabutotchi for a bit to document what hes like and stuff, but after a few days, I'll either get more lax when it comes to taking care of him, or just reset, idk yet. Welp, I'll see you guys when Kabutotchi emerges from his cocoon!

    I would open it and enjoy it, speaking from personal experience here but on a different hobby. Adding onto what Penguin-keeper said, I'm an 'in-box collector', and I seriously have over 100 PlayStation collector's editions games which I never even opened or displayed, time passed and I've moved on onto one particular game series and play that only, so I've lost interest in the PlayStation collector's editions I have accumulated and never enjoyed. In the end, was it worth missing out on enjoying them (seeing and displaying the statues/figures/artbooks) just to say I have some of the rarest editions that came out still brand new? Looking back now, I'd say no. Open it and make it a part of your life. Just treat it with the best care to your ability to keep it's condition as pristine as you can if it means that much to you

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

    Hi guys! I've made a small poem about Tamagotchis. I was inspired today, so I like how it turned out. Here is what I had gotten! ♥ I might have a problem. A small one, I think. It happened so fast, best described in a blink. It’s not curable, too, and indeed quite drastic. I fell in love with a creature of pixels and plastic. Some might call it quite immature and strange, But for me, my fascination will never be changed. It’s true, I fell in love with a creature of pixels and plastic. But it takes the pure at heart to carry on with the magic. Comments and critiques welcome! ♥ ~Dez

    Oh my god, that is not the result that I was expecting! Not only did Blobtchi live up to his unfortunate name with unfortunate looks (he looks like a puffball from the Kirby series, given a hideous beak and stuck onto a tiny body), but he also completely washed out the gene-pool! I was expecting at least some cute ears to make it through from somewhere in the family-tree (especially since his teen stage inexplicably had small horns), but nope! He's such a blank slate that I literally have no idea who to have him marry, because he barely has any traits of his own to pass on, and I just can't imagine how the next generation might look. I don't imagine that it'd be as much of a shock as this one, though!

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

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