    Hey there! I adore digital pets but I've only ever dabbled with the Digimon line and the V1 Tama back when I was a kid. I've been doing some research for quite some time now as I am hoping to pick up a color Tama next month. I was banking on picking up a M!x but I noticed the new Meet Tama were released quite recently. I do plan on getting both eventually but I was wondering how everyone is liking the Meet versus the M!x? Or perhaps there is another color Tama you guys enjoy more? There are so many versions it's making my head spin but I'd like to know what everyone likes or what would be a good first when it comes to getting the most content. Thanks!

    I think you meant Meets there, Hoky!

    Definitely didn't have the sports plaza unlocked before I got him. If it's like the M!x, all the first-gen obtainable tamas are just on care mistakes.

    Did you by chance have the Sports Plaza unlocked, do you know? I’m wondering if that has anything to do with it. I’ve tried to get him a few times with different care mistakes to no avail. I tried near perfect (1), average (3-4), and horrible (7+), and never seemed to get him, but I noticed I never unlocked the sports plaza because I didn’t have another meets or mix to connect to (now I have two meets!). Though I will say, I enjoyed seeing which characters I do unlock with the different care mistakes. Hopefully I can help in making a growth chart soon!

    This is a virtual pet I found recently at a thrift store. I can not for the life of me figure out what it is. It functions quite like an older tamagotchi would but is still different. I searched everywhere for something similar but had no such luck. So I have made an account here to seek help. Does anyone here recognize it? I can provide more photos of it's functions if people want.

    Absolutely true. You see it all the time in my other hobbies. Just a couple years ago, someone who used to work for hasbro came out of the blue and started putting thousands of dollars worth of unreleased Generation 2 Transformer prototypes on ebay. I'm sure if we wait long enough, we'll see those tama-gos pop up. The one tricky thing will be that they'll probably pop up on a Japanese site. XD This is a really cool thread. I'll have to check the rom versions on my connections the next time I run 'em.

    I'm not sure if it's like this for all Japanese connections, but when I ROM tested both my Keitai and Hanerutchi 1 (which is based on the Keitai's programming), holding all buttons while resetting didn't work for me. I had to hold only B and C while pressing the reset button. It might just be a quirk with the Keitai line but I'm not sure.

    found this place again! this was the first forum I ever signed up to, in 2006, time really flies. I was never a very active poster here, but I did lurk a lot. vv weird to be back. I recently graduated from university and haven't had time for tamas in many years, hoping to maybe start up with them again. probably just one or two max, I tried to keep one alive recently and failed miserably... I can't believe that 10 years ago or so I was able to keep multiple tamagotchi alive at once, and even get the best characters 😭 totally crazy

    I am from time to time reminded how much TamaTalk has grown and changed with tamagotchi. I get nostalgic of other sites and groups I was a part of. I am going to try and be a little more active with tamas. Wish me luck and I hope to make more friends along the way!

    M!X and Meets are very similar, but I think I enjoy Meets more, though be vary that this version so far has been proven kind of... buggy, there are some issues some people are having but they are not pernament. There is an app that comes with it so that's convienent (though it is M!X compatible too, just M!X can't use all the functions), pets made a comeback, the characters are pretty interesting too, and there are small things like the ability to have twins. As a whole imo neither M!X or Meets have a HUGE amount of content compared to some previous versions BUT I think Meets has more. Here is also a handy color version comparison guide, however it doesn't include the Meets yet: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1eDsMjBL2_gl7dOHoB3VqZurn7dFgszCp/view

    That's not just opinion - it's a fact! The voltage drops off quicker with rechargeables (and, at 1.2v, is lower than the 1.5v initially provided by non-rechargable batteries), so they're not as useful for certain applications. That's why manufacturers of certain device categories, toys, and so on, recommend against using them in their products. It'll certainly save you money, and they're better for the environment. There's a page with good information on the topic here: https://michaelbluejay.com/batteries/rechargeable.html The relevant part is about NiMH rechargeables, since that's what you're most likely to encounter.

    Rechargeables die quicker than normal batteries in general, though, imo. My M!X can last a few weeks/about a month while Meets barely lasted two.

    The browned out thing is normal, it just means it's dirty. You can clean it by one of the options in the treasure chest I believe (3rd if I'm not mistaken) As for battery life, yes, some people have been reporting this problem. It's most likely related to inclusion of Bluetooth technology in such a small 2xAAA battery operated toy.

    That's really unfair on the original Tamagotchi - the programming for these 168-in-1 multi-pets is nowhere near that advanced. They don't have a life-cycle, or sleep, or die, or even keep time, or evolve in any way, they age by receiving exploding letters from their workplace, they'll poop endlessly even if you never feed them, food makes no difference to them, and you can make them as fat as a house and they'll never refuse to eat.

    (This isn't my image, for some reason the one's I took with my phone weren't working. I found this one on Google.) This is it! Although mine has some weird cursive writing across the top that I can't quite make out. I tried it out and it was just the generic programming they use in most of the fakes.
