    V4, as it was my first ever Tamagotchi.
  • Favorite Tamagotchi Character
    Too many to list! But Nyatchi is my personal favourite. I adore the connection-era 'gotchis the most, though!

  1. While I've been warming up to the V3, the V4 has always been my favourite. Probably didn't help I grew up with it! The nostalgic bias continues to blind. I love the new features introduced, such as the skill points system for a unique character-raising experience, alongside the job system - in which I suck at getting the job I want but somehow always get the job I need. The games are a little repetitive nowadays, and I wish Tamatown was still open (the back-up website unfortunately didn't preserve the full game), but I still really love popping a battery in and seeing how many generations I can go for. One thing I love about the connections as a whole is the save system - I've had a character on my V2 for years because I just keep changing out the battery! My V6 has a long-running line I've had for a few years now as well, and I've been trying to raise different characters every generation as it's so easy to get the best cares on that version. In fact, I love the V6 as well, even with its unfortunate scarcity! But for me, the V4 will always reign supreme. And the shell designs are super cool! And there's so many of them alongside region-exclusives, oh my I feel for the poor sap who's looking to collect them all.
  2. Finally obtained Pyonkotchi on my V3!!! I've been wanting to raise one forever. He's so cute! >v<

      important update: i did not know the v3s had the brushing teeth animation also play in the morning, i'm gonna cry ;A;

    2. PurplePyonkotchi00!


      THATS AWESOME pyonkotchi is so blessed!

      @PurplePyonkotchi00! I bet there's no bias in that statement :) Never would have guessed you'd have that opinion with that username XD It's always nice when you get one of your favorite characters - like Knighttchi! Hey, maybe if the colour models start including the older characters you could use the colour changing foods to really get a purple Pyonkotchi.

      @Tamacass Enjoy the plethora of item animations the V3 has to offer :^)

  3. According to the instruction manual (found it over here!), it says that turning the crank to the living room starts the game, though I'm not sure why the mom isn't on the screen comparing to what it says: It's possible you may not have gone there yet? I think the dim lights are normal for this part, I'm not sure (I haven't played the Babysitter House in so long). Hopefully this helps out! This was one of my favourite Pixel Chix models growing up, though I don't have one anymore. If it still doesn't work, I recommend pressing the reset button on the back, or replacing the batteries. Good luck!
  4. I've noticed this too over the past few years! Music Stars are really high in demand, especially recently, and that really sucks you can't find one! ;A; Your feelings of frustration are totally valid, and the fact that you've been waiting for one since you were a kid?! That's a terrible position to be in! Tamagotchis have become collectibles, unfortunate at is is, appealing to former 'gotchi owners and shell hoarders alike. There's so many people like you in the same position - I've been searching for a V5.5 myself over the past year! And they're very hard to find, along with a good price. Most listings I've mistaken for one are just the original V5 too! so many heartbreaking visits to Tamashell.com have ensued XD Trust me, there's many people all around the world who have a Music Star in storage and don't even know how valuable it is. You will get your hands on one someday, mark my words - my first Tamagotchi back when I restarted my collection was the Glam Rock V6, listed under 'tamagotchi' with nothing hinting towards the type of tama it was! And I didn't even know there were different Tamagotchi versions at the time! You have to be patient, no matter how painful the wait is. I have a search under "tamagotchi" listed on my favourites bar that I check every morning, set to newly listed + used condition as new in package listings are usually the newer models or unfairly-priced new-old stock. The less specific you are with your hunting, the more rarities you may be able to find. You might already do this though, haha! I'm just rambling now, good luck finding your dream Tamagotchi! We're all rooting for you! ^^
  5. I have... many thoughts about this - I remember the leak and already feeling wary of the shell design, and even now the Pix gives me a really cheap vibe? I agree with the bootleg vibes some of you are getting. I'm not sure why, pessimism aside about original western Tamagotchi releases. At least it's in colour this time! Yay. I do actually like the designs of the faceplates, except for the separated crack segment up the top with the google docs-looking 'tamagotchi' font. It would be a good place for the camera though - now that I think about it, how will this device even be able to process a camera considering how small it is?? I mean, small-sized digital cameras for kids have been around since the early 2000's (the 90's if you count the legendary Gameboy Camera!), but still. The packaging + its mix of Connection-era and Modern-era artwork, even though its the same art style, kills me inside - but that's only because I fret about these kinds of aesthetic continuities, oops. I feel the same! I really don't care for social media... but thinking about it, the picture part is cute for novelty's sake. This is the closest I can get to my virtual 32x32 sprite sheet, leave me alone. I also like how jobs are implied to be returning - that was one of my favourite features on the V4, which is my favourite Tamagotchi! (hopefully the minigame aspect will be there, as opposed to the rational choice of having a cute animation and a photo-op). Choosing from an egg reminds me of the Friends, down to the number you can choose as well. Interesting... I'm not sure about the lack of buttons but hey, at least I won't have to worry about them refusing to respond (unless the touchpad stops responding... oh no). A part of me is excited, but a part of me also feels like this could possibly be a very watered-down Tamagotchi... toy, if that makes sense. I'm sure this is all irrational, new releases always get me feeling this way. Hopefully I'll be able to get excited about this as well in due time! I still think the most exciting part is how it's a western-exclusive colour Tamagotchi - hey, if it's cheap, maybe I'll be able to pick it up as opposed to having to import the ON! Then again... I'll probably have to import this version too. XD Time to wait and see!
  6. I've had the P's for a few years now! All the pierces do is add certain extra characters (sometimes transformations depending on the pierce), extra items, backgrounds, and foods. Some pierces give you the ability to visit extra locations, but as mentioned it really does depend on the pierce! You may already know about this though. XD To get to my point - I've never gotten my hands on any of the pierces, nor do I have a way to download extra content through iRDA. With or without them, the P's is still a really really fun version to run, and there is a bunch of things to do/characters to raise/locations to unlock and so on and so forth. My P's is beat-up and scratched to death (oops) so if you do pick one up, don't do what I did, haha!!! It's a version worth taking care of, to sum it up. And I do like the shell design - it's very pretty! I always end up fidgeting with the pierce port though. XD This version is known for losing its shell colour/yellowing over time easily (though this applies to most of the colour versions), so be careful when storing it and taking it around! Basically, if you're willing to take the risk price-wise, the P's is a very fun 'gotchi to own. There's a few differences between it and the ON (such as the obvious language barrier, unless you've got a way to patch it - I am forever envious of those who can ), but those differences are what make it unique and fun. This has gone on for pretty long now, so if you're still unsure I'd recommend some further research and seeing what you like about it. I hope this helped you out!
  7. I think I know what it is - your batteries may be dead! The "crayons" you may be seeing might actually be Kandentchi! This is a warning screen telling the user to replace your batteries, featuring an exclusive battery-like Tamagotchi and a warning message in Japanese up the top! It can appear at any time on your Tamagotchi, usually after a long time of use, so don't worry, this is totally normal. This had nothing to do with selecting your friend list. Tamagotchi ON/Meets/colour versions in general are known for draining through batteries, so I'm impressed you made it to gen 4! (unless I've just been using terrible, off-brand batteries... oh no...) All you need to do now is just open up the back of the Tamagotchi and replace it's batteries. When it turns back on again, you will be met by a white screen with two options to choose from - choose the top one, as this is actually your save data, meaning you can continue your generation from where you left off (and see your Tamagotchi again)! The bottom option resets your Tamagotchi permanently, and should only be selected when you want to start anew from generation one. I hope this helped you out! Please let me know if I'm wrong anyhow.
  8. Thanks for liking! :)

      no problemo! welcome back btw! :D

    2. CheeWaWa


      thank you!

  9. I had a huge Earthbound phase back in 2017! I've been meaning to explore the hacking scene of this game, I'll definitely have to check it out when I can. Now that I think about it, there is a Christmas-themed video game I have... though it's not like it's an original creation, per say. It came in a pack of a few Super Mario Bros (NES) ROM hacks I downloaded a few years ago: it was dubbed Toadette's Christmas Adventure. I've played through it a few times, mainly when I get extremely bored: It's a pretty short ROM hack, all things considered, but there's a really sweet and nostalgic charm to it (it's a pretty old hack from what I remember). There's also a companion game to it, in which you play as Toad instead, but I don't have that one on me. I'll post more if I remember anything else Christmas-themed from the depths of my memory!
  10. I've never had a video game that I play around Christmas before (or, at least, a Christmas-themed one), this sounds like such a good idea! If I'm thinking about it now... maybe a marathon involving all the snow-themed world and levels in the Mario games I own. Can't go wrong with the series I love the most! @Penguin-keeper I've never heard of this game, but it looks like it makes for a fun play-through every year! @mimitchi ^o^ My favourite Animal Crossing is also the one on the GameCube! Before I bought my lovely second-hand GC, I used to emulate the original, and it slowly became my preferred title. New Leaf was my first game in the series, and I have lots of good memories with it, but Population: Growing! is where it's at. Too bad my GameCube's clock battery ran out and needs opening up to even replace it -- at least my old, yellowing Wii has backwards compatibility! Somewhat off-topic, but I do have a yearly movie-watching tradition: A Charlie Brown Christmas + Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer! Animation/stop-motion and Christmas-themed? Sign me up.
  11. The Hello Kitty Nano's been released! Unfortunately, it's not available anywhere near me, and I would purchase it from EB Games (of which marks it as 'exclusive' down here) if their shipping rates suddenly hadn't shot up to $14. Waiting this one out for now. :(

      Maybe I should have started to code these retro tamagotchis in decreasing chronological order. I'd be coding the PacMan one right now lol

  12. I sometimes experience this - specifically, the invisible field of falling pieces, usually after staring/closing my eyes - with different puzzle games I play, though it only really happens if I've been playing them for waaaaay too long. I've never thought about it being connected with my tamagotchi dreams! They usually happen very rarely, during a time when I'm not running a version, or when I haven't thought about the subject entirely for a while. It could totally be a reason for them though.
  13. My Tamagotchi Friends: Dream Town just arrived! There was a bit of a scare - the previous owner had left batteries in, and it was refusing to activate with a new pair, but one battery test with my good ol' Tamatown Tama-Go and it decided to play nice! Log post coming soon... ;) hopefully. XD

    1. 321Boom


      Whew, glad it worked in the end! Enjoy your new Tama!! xD :D:D:D

    2. PurplePyonkotchi00!
  14. Oh my gosh I have the exact same dreams as you, they're occasionally reoccurring (every few months) and there's always either so many (usually free) or so little (usually costs money, weirdly). I once had a dream about going to a thrift store (it looked more like a grocery store with its shelves and layout tbh), and I saw a weird flip-phone Tamagotchi with a transparent background (no paper sheet inside)! Starting this year I've had around two dreams about going to this mall and seeing this store - in the first dream it was a huge store going out of business and it was selling all of it's NIB color tamas for $1 each, then a dream I had way later involved the store back in business, where you could play luck-based games (like the ticket-earning machines you can find in arcades) to win tamas. I won two pink iD Ls (also new in box)! Amazing. I never fail to wake up in a sad state after these dreams. They always vary in location too (similar to yours) - I once had this dream where I was at this country fair of sorts and there was this massive building-sized crate full of Tamagotchis. That was a few years ago now iirc? It was super weird, but pretty cool either way!
