  1. I'm looking to buy a colored Tamagotchi soon, a P I think, so I'm searching Amazon and ebay. They're going for 100 US dollars these days -- I used to pay 20 bucks for a connection tama back in the day! If you get it used, it's half the price! - but I'm seeing they are VERY used. Is it just what I'm seeing or does the screen scratch super easily on the Ps/colored tamas, and dirt can get between the top layer of clear plastic and the colored plastic? Are these owners being really causal with their tamas or is it hard to keep them in good condition? I've only ever had connections and they don't get that beat up. If they get beat up easily, maybe I'd rather save 50 bucks and buy one used. If it's gonna get messed up anyway. And then I can take it with me places and actually care for it rather than be afraid of touching it for fear it gets scratched. Another element for me is getting one already English patched cuz I can't be bothered to buy an infra red phone AND its charger, and all the time patching myself. I'm not a techie. At the same time, if I'm paying money for a new tamagotchi, I want the excitement of it being pristine, and only mine. So for you all - do you buy used or brand new?
  2. Hi! I saw some posts about this but they were a couple years old so I wanted to get some more updated info. I am going on a study abroad program to Cuba in a couple of weeks. Although I'm sure there will be plenty to entertain me there, I want to bring a tamagotchi as a comfort thing to remind me of home. It makes the most sense to put it in my carry-on, but I don't want to have to take it out fully in public because I dont want to reveal to the very mature group I'll be wit that I'm 20 years old with a tamagotchi. I mean, I think you can be mature and have a tama, but I feel they will be the judgy type, if you get me. The ideal situation would be they see it in my purse in the X-ray, but don't question it, don't make me take it out. Or should I just put it in checked luggage then? I'm afraid that especially with Cuban security being so suspicious of Americans they will find it and get rid of it without me being able to explain how harmless it is. (whereas with carry-on bags I am there the whole time to make sure everything is okay). Anyone have experience with international travel and tamagotchis? Especially to places where the trend has died out and people won't recognize them right away. If relevant, I only have connection versions. Thanks!!!
  3. Aaaand 2 weeks later, I'm already sick of the v6. It's so pretty but gets old quick! :(

  4. I started up my music star for christmas, because I got it for christmas years ago, and associate it with the season
  5. I recently started up my v6 again, which i haven't played with since i first got it 7 years ago. I played with it up to 8 generations at that time, so I must have liked it. Here's my personal vibe: Pros: - new characters, bringing back favs - wide screen - new games - fun concepts like having their own instrument and toy, the door - I like having to shop for food rather than having constant food cuz it makes becoming a successful musician and earning points get a little more important - there's something at stake - ability to marry bandmates: feels like Tamagotchi has built relationships other than through the matchmaker, even if you don't have a second v6 to connect them with Cons: - I also have unresponsive buttons - compared to v2-4.5, there are less games (3) and less job-games (1): there was a diff game for each job in the v4 with like 12 jobs (i think?), here, every adult practices with the same game. Gets boring. - kind of related to the above: once the idea of being "a music star" wears off, it's meh - Less characters. After a few generations you know what you're gonna get. - requires lots of care - teen to adult evolution much faster, some like to have more time with the teen character I think the biggest issues people have are probably with care needs and games. Then why have I activated it? The wide screen display is SO nice after the tiny screens of older connections. I also like the concepts of playing with toys and working to buy food. Also because it's the newest one I own and more people are talking about it online than my v4.
  6. I have a child on a v6, he was born about 18 hours ago. He only has one toy, his rabbit that his mom had. I missed the doorbell for when he was invited to preschool, but i went to away and he's able to go to preschool so he's advanced to that point. However, arent you supposed to get a new toy when you join preschool? I go in the menu and all i have is the rabbit from the first generation. It wouldnt really be an issue except my little boy hates the rabbit so much that it stresses him out to play with it. Between that and practicing and school, he is super stressed. I can only play games so much, and they onky lower stress so much. What can I do??
  7. anyone else running a v6 right now?

  8. I feel super engaged with my tamas from babyhood until adulthood. But after a about a day or two of being an adult, I am less interested, I start counting down until the matchmaker will come and I can start over. It's weird because thew hole reason I like the childhood stages are out of excitement to see what adult I can achieve, but then that joy is short lived. With the v4 I'm currently running the excitement of getting a job helps keep me interested a bit longer, but I still have 2-3 days of just bleh. Anyone else feel like this? What do you do to enjoy your adult characters while you wait for the next generation?
  9. my tamagotchi died again last night :(

  10. Is a mix worth the $$? Especially if I'm an English speaker and it only comes in japanese?

    1. Saltonara


      Honestly, you don't need to know much Japanese to use it (if any at all). There are English guides on the internet, too. Whether it's worth the money or not depends on how much you love the franchise and concept of the m!x. Personally, I think the m!x was worth the money I paid for it.

    2. Jhud


      And how much text there is on english tamagotchis? You really really don't need to know Japanese to play with Japanese versions.

  11. I've never gotten a universal character on a v4, but today I did! The first few hours of Isa's toddler hood were rough, but the rest of it was very well cared for - lots of games, low weight, lots of trips to preschool - so I wasn't expecting it. She's a Hawaikotchi. But I love it! I think she's sooooo cute! Wouldn't trade her!

  12. It did come a few hours later. Thanks for calming my concern!
  13. Hi! I have a v6 who is 1 year old and has been a teenager all day. She hasn't recieved an invitation to go to school, and/or I have missed it (it's been a busy day). When I click Away, she can't go to school. I've waited the past few hours for an invitation, but nothing has changed. Are there times that are known for getting this invitation? Is she somehow too young? Have I missed the boat and she will never get to go to school and have a band? Please assist. Thanks.
  14. I married two characters that became Mamametchi and Papa-mamaetchi -- but I still had a blended family. I thought you got a "smart" family for that, and a "Mame" family if it was a Mametchi + Chanotchi??

    1. Lovetchi2862


      Sometimes you get a Smart Family, but not always. Also, if you have a Mametchi with 100% bonding who marries a Chantotchi, then you will get the Mame Family.

    2. Blooperz00


      ahhhh :( I've had 3 blended families now (5 if you count the 2 generation on the other v5) I hate waiting a whole generation to get something new


  15. v5 was supposed to be the easier one to care for but I keep getting Ninja family :(

    1. Eternal Mametchi Fan

      Eternal Mametchi Fan

      That's from neglecting them, but I'm pretty sure there's a special item you can use to turn them back to their normal state...

  16. I also watch when it's a new character (each one has a different eating style!) or when its a fav food, or a food I haven't fed to that character yet, in case it's their fav food (I prefer to find out by surprise rather than look up the lists). On the v5 I also watch more often b/c I like seeing the parents feed
  17. I grew up with the Connections of 2004-2008 which were all a uniform size, as you know. It was perfect in height, and width - to fit in my pocket, to even hold in the palm of my hand and fit in small pockets of my bag. I want to get the latest Tamas and join in the fun, but they all look twice as big and twice as thick - much harder to keep as a casual addition to my purse. Anyone have some knowledge or guesses as to why this change was implemented with the latest versions?? Oh like also with the hard buttons? Does anyone prefer the big tamagotchis? Would also be interested in that.
  18. This is something think about a lot - how I like features from different tamas and wish they all existed in the same version. At the moment, my Ideal Tamagotchi would have the shape of the v1 and v2, the wide screen of the v5/v6, the "you have to buy food in order to survive" of the v6, the school/jobs of the v4 and 4.5, and the babysitter feature that I think the 4U has (I only have connections). And a mix of all the characters across the versions. That's all I can think of at the moment. What features would you mix?
  19. Hi everyone. Somehow Minn passed away last night, while Oilyn survived, despite being the same age and receiving about the same care (well, neglect). Oilyn is now a Kurokotchi: (Pictures are time consuming, I'm sorry!) I'm saddened by Minn's death, but also honestly bored. I remember having a lot of fun with my v3 back in the day, but with the v4 and versions since, all the features have ruined my appetite for the simplicity of the v3. Or maybe I'm just getting bored of tamas in general? I have half a mind to give up and switch versions, but something tells me i should also stick it out a while longer. What do you think? And if I version switch, should I go v5 or v6 (or maybe even back to 4.5 after all that?
  20. Hi everyone! After the death of my v4.5 and having been playing on the 4.5 for 2 months, I decided to switch it up and put batteries in 2 of my old v3s. It's been years since I've a) played with 2 tamagotchis at once and b)played with a v3. Between the two, I hope that will make up for the related simplicity of the v3 compared to the later versions I've been playing with over the years. One of my biggest motivations for this switch besides the above, was there variety in characters, and the ability to used the connection feature. I no longer know people with tamagotchis, so I've been on my own for a while. Running 2 seemed too difficult, so I just never had anyone to connect with. So this is an experiment! Let's see! For fun, I downloaded both and found two teenagers: a Young Mametichi an a Sparky Guy. At least that's what my brother and I called the character growing up.And when my brother played with tamas is probably when these guys were hatched. Oilyn, the Young Mametchi: Training: [iIIIII ] Age: 1 Weight: 22 Generation: 1 Gender: boy Minn, the Sparky Guy Training: [i ] Age: 1 Weight: 16 Generation: 1 Gender: boy I've also decided to allow comments on this log! Just in case you wanna. In the old ays of tamatalk people were very active with logs- their own, and with others. I figured I'd go back to those times.
  21. I named her Hill. She became a young violet chi and died. forgot to pause her during a busy day of work. I really needed to switch it up after my 3rd v4 death this summer, so I activated TWO v3s. i haven't done that version in a while. i find it kind go boring, so I activated 2, so they can connect and stuff. Since I'm the only one I know who still plays with tamas, unless I raise 2 at once, I never use the connection feature. It will be a lot of work -but thats why I chose 2 v3s. Might start a new log... not sure yet. Still mourning the loss of Hill, Jeff's daughter. Message me if you have ideas with where to go from here!
  22. Interesting log, especially because I never had any of these vintage versions! Thanks for doing this!
  23. Hi everyone! Sorry I'm behind on the posts! It's a bit time consuming to upload photos. But Jeff had a great adulthood- he ended up taking a job at the TV Station, which I selected because it's the dream job of my boyfriend, who he is named after Jeff's hard work there earned him 4060 points by the time he met Zuky, a Ura Zukyutchi. They got married and had a little baby girl. After spending time with his little girl, it was time for Jeff to leave and go back to Tamagotchi planet. I caught him saying goodbye here: Tomorrow morning my second generation begins!!
  24. I wasn't able to log yesterday, but Jeff became a Ura Mametchi! I'm so proud to see him all grown up! Remember back in the v1-3 days when getting a Mametchi was extremely difficult and rare? People would write posts and posts of theories on how to get the elusive Mametchi! I remember one time on my v3 I did get one, and it felt like sundrops had blessed my Tama haha. Anyway, here he is! His stats upon changing were: Age: 3 Weight: 38 Humor: 141 Beauty: 32 Spirituality:41 Training: [iIII ]
  25. Wow, I had no idea these new versions had babysitter features! How interesting! I'm still running v3-v6 from back in the day. Since it dropped out of the American mainstream I didn't realize just how many new versions were released. Sometimes I do change the time so that my tamagotchi is asleep while I'm at work - other times I forget to before I go into the office, and end up pausing him quickly half way through the day. I have considered running a low care tamagotchi, but during the times I do want to play with it a lot (on the bus, while babysitting when kids go to bed), it ends up being TOO boring. I might try it, but for now I have a generational goal with my v4.5 that I'm trying to meet (at least 10 generations).
