  1. American batteries will work, but rechargeables are notoriously unreliable. They'll lose their charge after a while. Probably best to stick with regular batteries
  2. HE'S DONE IT AGAIN, FOLKS!! So in an entire day I've gotten Sled Santa, Suit Santa, and Hat Santa! (Those definitely aren't the official names, in case anyone was wondering. I may or may not have just made them up on the spot haha) Now we're up to three bells filled on the Santa-ness meter!! Only one more to go!! (If you screw this up, Santaclautch, I swear I'll-) *ahem* So here's where the game gets interesting. What happens if he botches the next item I give him? Will a bell go down? Will nothing happen at all? Also, according to the ?s in the inventory, there are three items that Santaclautch hasn't found yet. Three items, and only one bell. Hmm... I'm going to bet my money on two secret characters here. It's just a theory, though, but I'm hoping I'm right!! Anyway, aside from all the item-getting, not much has happened today. Santa has eaten twice and surprisingly only run away once! Perhaps now that he looks more like Santa Claus he is settling into his new role! Speaking of eating, I noticed that he hasn't touched his cake pieces yet. Perhaps he eats the food first and if he hets hungry again and the food hasn't been restocked he moves to the cake? Just a theory. I would test it, but I don't want his weight to skyrocket. People are trying to figure out how the weight affects Santaclautch's growth, but from what I've read there isn't a definite consensus yet. I'm going to keep it low just to be on the safe side. It's 9:12 pm and Santaclautch has gone to sleep! I'm going to assume his bedtime is 9 then. Everyone, have a great evening!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Final Stats: Distance: 1 Age: 102 years Weight: 100 g Hunger: 1/4 Happy: 4/4 Bells: 3 Food: 4/4 Candy: 4/4
  3. WOAH! So Santa and I have had an exciting evening! We played the chimney game a lot, and ended up getting a few items from it!! Another ball of yarn... Another wrapping paper... And a fork again. I decided to let him use the wrapping paper first and see what happened... Success!! Yet ANOTHER Santa item!! He has his little napsack and everything!! So cute!! I figured I would try my luck again and let him have the ball of yarn next...
  4. OH GOODNESS. Here is the link to the eBay auction for anyone curious: Why are there four kinds of boat!? That frog... he's seen some things!! Can anyone tell what the triangle with the eye is? It's on the sixth row down and ten across.
  5. That's crazy!! A pet boat!? Or a pet Spongebob!? Haha, I would love to see one of those in action. What on Earth would you feed a boat?? Also, I love how the reset button is just right there dead centered, waiting to accidentally be pressed!!
  6. Day three!! Santaclautch and I have had a slow but eventful day today, if that even makes sense. I was worried I wouldn't catch him if he decided to run away, so I left him at home and on pause while I was at work this morning. I was SO glad to find out that you can pause the Santagotch! I also discovered that you can change the time from standard to military time by holding A and C for a moment longer while getting to the "set" on the time screen. As far as I know, this is the only Tamagotchi that can do military time, which is neat. So far, he's only been awake for half an hour. We finally found an item while playing the chimney game, and as it turns out we got the same item from today's Advent Calendar! It kinda looks like a fork with an absurdly large handle. No clue what it is actually supposed to be. Success!! The first Santa item!! He made himself a little sled with a little fork. Who would have thought of that!? And now he's Sledding Santa!! Ain't he precious??? :D I guess I'm just going to save the other fork for later. I am wondering if he makes a useless item tomorrow, that his sled form will go away and he'll lose a bell. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens! Finally, a bell on the Santa meter!! Still only one mark on distance traveled. Oh well. Final bit of business for now was to check the TV. He's on a stepstool throwing glitter now, and the tree has gotten a tiny bit bigger. Neat! That's all for now, but I'll make more posts throughout the day as things happen, and I'll do a final stats list tonight before I go to bed.
  7. Check for a crack, and if the shell is cracked, a little super glue painted over will hold it together. If there aren't any visible cracks, something may be loose on the inside.
  8. Thankfully I had read about this and was prepared. See, sometimes Santa doesn't want to be Santa! That's where the icon on the bottom left comes in. That icon summons Super Kuchipatchi to fetch Santaclautch and bring him back on screen. The only thing hurt was his pride. He actually disappeared three times today!! Once early morning, again in the mid afternoon, and again about an hour before he went to bed. This dude is a TERRIBLE Santa!! Thankfully, every time he leaves the jingle plays to let you know something's up. I've read that if you don't call Super Kuchipatchi in time, Santaclautch will actually leave for good and return to his cabin, forcing you to start the unit all over again. So, basically, you have to have the sound on and be listening for it at all times. For that reason I'm hoping I can leave him on pause for most of the time while I'm at work tomorrow. Other than that, he is the most self-sufficient Tamagotchi I've ever seen! So for today I basically let him do his thing. We played the game a couple times when his Happiness hearts got low, and I had to restock his food storage three times (it was either two or three, I don't remember to be honest). No bells on the Santa meter yet. At some point around noon, I noticed that he had a single point on his distance meter. I'm not sure if that's from playing the game so much or just the general passage of time though. Hopefully I can figure out that soon. Speaking of the game, I've read that you can get items from playing the game, but I haven't had that happen on my particular Santagotch yet. It could be that there is an incredibly low chance of getting an item, but I'll keep playing it and just see what happens. Santaclautch went to bed some time between 9 and 9:25 pm tonight. I wasn't paying attention but it's good to know that the first night he fell asleep so late just from me turning him on late. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Final Stats: Distance: 1 Age: 101 years Weight: 103 g Hunger: 2/4 Happy: 3/4 Bells: 0 Food: 4/4 Candy: 4/4
  9. Now he's a- wait. I actually have no idea what this could be. He looks the same as he did in his first form, but his pants are striped and there's a little string coming out of the back of his head. You can also tell that he's wearing tiny little shoes. Yeah I've got nothing. Also, if you'll notice in the first bit the pictures of him eating are actually in this new form. I couldn't get to my camera fast enough when he started eating the first time. Sorry for the continuity error!! So I went about my day as usual (Thankfully I didn't have to work today, as Tuesdays are when my boyfriend gets a group of us together at my house for our Vampire the Masquerade game! We're nerds, I know ) and after a couple hours heard a rapid jingle! I, having never heard the Santagotch make that sound before, grabbed my camera and rushed over... He was gone!!!
  10. Day 2!! I love this little Santaclautch. Love love love LOVE!!! :D He was up and waking around when I checked him this morning, and it was around 9:25 am so I'm assuming he woke up at 9 or earlier. His Happy was only missing two hearts and he was down to one Hunger heart, but his fridge was full so I figured I'd wait for him to eat and play the chimney game for a bit instead. After the game, I was up and about and heard some jingling!! (The beeps on the Santagotch aren't beeps, they're more like bells, which is extremely fitting.) He was eating! (And yes, I let him sleep in my little knitted Tamagotchi nest for the night. He is actually still in it because I'm afraid to touch the case and scuff the paint ;^; ) Next, I checked on the TV. The baby was now a toddler, and he is putting up a tree! The animation made it look like he was throwing glitter at it; it was kind of weird. I can only guess he was actually supposed to be watering it or something. Then I went to the Advent Calendar and got today's item! It was a roll of wrapping paper? I think? He made a little tunic!!
  11. Hey-o! Yeah, I jumped back into Tamagotchis recently after playing with my P1 nearly 20 years ago so I know how overwhelming it is now haha! The last English release of Tamagotchi was Tamagotchi Friends: Dream Town. In Japan though, they have color Tamagotchis! It started with the +Color, then the iD, iD L, P's, 4U (which uses NFC technology) and recently the 4U+. The full timeline is here: So far, the only English color Tamagotchi is the English iD L. The most heavily ran/played Tamagotchis seem to be the Connections. There are so many versions of the Connections that I can't keep them all straight, but everyone seems to love them!
  12. My P1 and Santagotch are on regular time, but I keep my Angel paused during the day and on at night. I never set the time forward or backward, just pause it when I need to. I haven't had to pause the Santagotch yet but I did pause the P1 when it was a baby and I was going to see a 2 hour movie and didn't want it to die!
  13. Thanks!! I am super excited to have him. He's been a really fun, unique Tamagotchi so far!
  14. Bright and early this morning, I let Lemon run for a couple hours and lo and behold, he started praying!! The little jingle played, same as before, and now his Deeds is halfway full again! Woohoo!! Of course, he pooped immediately afterward. I wonder why the Angel only poops after praying. Is it a glitch, or do they all do that? Why would they program the Angel in such a way? I will admit though, the little animation he does before he poops is super adorable! He is sitting on a little duck, like a little pool float or something. Perhaps it's a duck-shaped toilet? Who knows, but it's super cute. Next time, if I remember, I'll get a picture of it. Other than that, nothing has happened with Lemon tonight. All it's been is the usual feeding every now and then, playing the game every now and then, and compulsively feeding candy every time his AP drops so much as a single point.... Yeah, I'm a bit OCD, I know. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Final stats: Character: Kuriten Age: 4 years AP: 79 Deeds: 7 Hungry: 4/4 Effort: 3/4
  15. I decided to check the Advent Calendar next. Each day you get an item, and Santaclautch can use the item to make something useless, or something that will make him look more like Santa Claus. I'm pretty sure the item you get is random, and you can have more than one of the same item in Santa's inventory. Success! A thing! (I'm guessing it's a ball of yarn) I checked his inventory to see if he could use the item to make something Santa-like. Work that magic, boy!! He made a beanie cap!! And now he's a rad, rad, snowboarding dude. Not quite Santa Claus, but oh well. We shall try again tomorrow!! I went and checked the TV next, but not much was going on there. A cute little fella is looking at his wreath. Super cute!! At 11:30pm on the dot, Santa went to bed in a tent. The lights went dark automatically. Cool! Sweet dreams, buddy!!
  16. Pick a chimney... Down he goes!! Success!! No presents were left for the sleeping little Memetchi, but Santa was certainly happy that he found someone! But wait... what happens if you pick the wrong chimney?? Oops! Covered in soot!!
  17. And this is the hunger meter. The direct translation is "stomach," which is adorable. Apparently this guy eats when he wants to, as stated before. When you feed him the first bit of food he actually eats it, then he stores the rest away for later. THIS IS SO CONVENIENT I LOVE IT OMG When you go to the food storage option on the stats icon, you can see how much food and candy Santa has stored away. The food is little rice bowls, and the candy is cake. The usual. And here little Santaclautch is!! Ain't he precious. And naked. Oh my. After stocking up his fridge, I decided we should play the game for a bit. Santagotch has one game: you go down one of three chimneys to try to find the sleeping Tamagotchi.
  18. The stats icon gives you two options. The first one is how Santa is doing, and the second is his food storage. Apparently this Tamagotchi eats when it wants to and DOESN'T POOP OMG HALLELUJAH!!! :D My Santa is currently 100 years old and weighs 101... g? Surely that isn't grams, but whatever. This apparently is distance traveled. The exact translation is simply, "way." I'm assuming at some point I'll see a cutscene where he visits the house of a Tamagotchi and gives them a present. There isn't a praise icon on this unit, so I'm going to guess he will just do it automatically. He knows it's his duty as Santaclautch!! This is how close he is to being the actual Santa Claus. From what I've read, every time Santaclautch uses an item from the Advent Calendar and creates a piece of clothing that makes him more like Santa, a bell is filled. So far, nothing on this little guy. I'm not sure the exact translation on this one, but I'm assuming it's the happiness meter.
  19. So I've decided to put my iD L on pause mainly because I'm getting sick of how needy the dang thing is, and my P1 needs a companion because I'm only running my Angel, Lemon, at night. So I present for everyone's enjoyment... *DRUMROLLS* *WARNING MY PHOTOS ARE BIG AND I DON'T KNOW HOW TO MAKE THEM SMALL* Santagotch!! This is the first time I'm doing jolly old Saint Santaclautch, and there isn't too much information on him so I'm pretty much going into this completely blind. I'm hoping this log will be informative for anyone else out there wanting to get a Santagotch!! Ok, Let's start this thing!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ First thing you'll notice is you have to set the date. Month is on the top, day is on the bottom. The Santagotch needs the date because of the advent calendar, which I'll explain later. Next you'll set the time. So far Santa hasn't gone to sleep yet and I'm writing this log at 11:20pm. Maybe he doesn't sleep? There is no light icon on the Santagotch that I can find. And then we wait! It takes 5 minutes for Santa to emerge from his bouncy house. The animation on the house is super cute. It bounces up and down, and the chimney makes little puffs of smoke. Once the 5 minutes are up though, the first couple lines from Jingle Bells play and... Santaclautch has arrived!! The icons on the main screen are as follows, from top left to bottom right (these are not exact translations, by the way, I'm just calling them these based on what they do): 1. Stats 2. Food 3. Game 4. Inventory 5. Super Kutchipatchi 6. Advent Calendar 7. TV 8. Attention
  20. Brown paper packages tied up with strings... :)

  21. I like Tamagotchis because they're easier to take care of than a real pet (last I checked you can't pause a cat or dog!!), and it's fun to collect different shell designs and see which different characters you can get! Also, there are so many different versions you can mix and match what you play so it never gets boring!
  22. I wouldn't have thought of model paint!! There's a model train shop downtown where I live; I'm sure they'd have some gold paint in there!
  23. A care mistake is basically when a Tamagotchi beeps for attention but you don't respond, usually for 15 minutes or more. Care misses generally start once the Tamagotchi is at its teen stage of life. On the older versions like the P1 and P2, not giving discipline when the Tamagotchi beeps but doesn't need anything counts as a care miss, too.
  24. The 4U only uses NFC, so you'd need a phone (probably Japanese, I can't think of any English phones that have it yet) with NFC to be able to use the app. The New 3DS has NFC, but I don't think its hardware will let you use the app. The New 3DS is only supposed to work with Amiibo, and I think that goes for the Wii U, too. Best bet is to buy a cheap Japanese phone with NFC. Good luck!
