  1. King of Monsters was great, so I'm running my Mothra to celebrate. XD

  2. Y'know, I really like my Eevee tama, but I dunno if I'll ever run it again. No matter what I do, I can never seem to get anything other than Sylveon. I have tried to get any of the ones you get from the stones, but Umbreon, Espeon, Pop Star, and Team Rocket Eevees all seem utterly out of reach. ><

      Do you think that it's a bug, or just down to an obscure mechanic that's tripping you up, here?

      That's odd, I keep  hearing of everybody getting only Sylveon but my first eeveelution was a Jolteon.

      Maybe you're taking too good of a care for it? Since in the main games Sylveon evolves from high friendship.

  3. Anyone know of a good Devilgotchi guide? I keep getting the demon bird. ><

      This one is very basic, doesn't really help much but it's one of the only ones I know of. I will be adding one to my website soon, but it won't be yet.

      Thanks! That's about the same info the Wiki has. Also I think that chart is wrong because I got a Chubby Devilitchi off a Zukidebitchi, which that chart says shouldn't be a thing... Oh well! Gotta keep experimenting! LIFE IS STUDY! :D

  4. Just found out about the On. Really, really psyched!!

  5. So, first Devilgotchi run didn't go super well. Was keeping the DP at basically 0 all through his Debirutchi phase, but when he evolved into Ghost Deviltchi, his DP skyrocketed in a matter of about 5 hours and he left. I didn't even have events popping up to get it down besides the odd handshake or bad behavior. Any idea what I did wrong?

      God bless you I hope you're having a wonderful day brother

  7. Well, got my tax money back. Put most of it into savings, but splurged a little and got... a Devilgotchi! Fingers crossed there's nothing wrong with it. >< Meanwhile, I can't seem to get anything BUT Sylveon on my Eevee, even when I don't feed it any candy or play with it and only clean up its hairballs and give it 2 foods a DAY. ><

  8. Got an Oden-kun Tamagotchi. They're really fun! Kind of a vintage tama feel in a Connection-era tama. Cool characters too, though I know basically nothing about the show.

  9. 2eLlEHp.jpg

    I got Sylveon!

    ....which would be a lot cooler if I wasn't trying to get the Team Rocket Eevee. XD

  10. Y'know, I'm really liking the umi. Yeah, it's demanding (very), but there's really no other tama that has animations quite like this. They're smooth, responsive, the little bubbles that travel up the screen are neat, and it's actually fun to watch them swim around the screen. Mine is, unfortunately, very quiet, but it's still been a lot of fun to raise. I did turn the TamaOtch off for the moment though, as that, plus my Genjintch, plus the Umi was a bit too much. XD

    1. Kuchipetchi

      Kuchipetchi

      that bone game music on the genjintch is forever burnt into my head. i never forgot it.

    2. Hoky

      Hoky

      lol, yeah... my Umi is quiet, but my genjintch is one of the loudest vintage tamas I've ever owned. I like that his attention call out is kinda like a digitized Tarzan call. XD

  11. So wait, does candy/pausing affect the Genjintch really adversely? Out of the blue, my Dotetchi--who was at full hearts and 75% evolution meter--got mad, hopped on a space ship, and flew away! I hadn't gotten many care mistakes, and he was nowhere near normal tama death, but he didn't even make it to adult! What happened??

    1. Kuchipetchi

      Kuchipetchi

      I don't remember because its been about 5 years since i sold mine. but i didnt run it too long because it was so cryptic. mine kept de-evolving. i would look for an extensive guide if available

    2. Hoky

      Hoky

      I've looked mostly at the wiki, and while it mentions the de-evolving, it doesn't say anything about candy or pausing, and where it's very similar to the Mothra, I figured it was just going off the same rules. I'll see what else I can scrounge up, though!

  12. So the TamaOtch is... super weird. It's discipline meter goes DOWN over time, and no, not the Training meter, but the discipline one, too! The game is a slot machine that's just random dumb luck (thank goodness for snacks), and the training is time consuming. It's super unique, and I'm glad I'm trying it, but so much is just left up to random chance! Ah well.  It's definitely not my favorite so far, but it's somehow both low maintence and yet time consuming... We'll see what it looks like when it hits adult!
    In the meantime, my Genjintch evolved into Dotetchi, and he's pretty fun to watch as well:

    He sticks his tongue out when he's happy. XD

      i miss my genjintch. always de-evolving!!

      Haven't run into that yet, but it does worry me. XD Isn't the teen phase super long, too?

  13. Got my Genjintch and Umi! Decided to run the Genjintch... it's weird! A little demanding, and you have to praise it for making pottery instead of disciplining it. Game is the same as the Morino, and the baby and toddler stages feel kinda digimon-y to me. I guess growth works kinda like Mothra, so it's a lot of familiar factors...
    But I mean, look at this guy! The shell is gorgeous! The red and yellow really look great with the two-tone brown details. AND LOOK AT HOW HAPPY THE LITTLE KUROMARUTCHI IS! So far, the sprites have had a ton of personality, and they're a lot of fun to watch. Top factors in a good tama for me. XD

    Meanwhile, I'll start up the Umi next weekend when I have 3 days off from work to baby it... wish me luck!

      Congrats, Hoky! The Kuromarutchi looks so cute ^_^ I hear the Genjintchi can get really needy in its old age, so I hope you don't have too much trouble with it. I looked into getting a Gejintchi a while back and eventually dropped it from my list because it was pricey on Ebay and also didn't seem any more appealing than other tamas. Now I think I might buy any tama just to try it out XD

      JYW had this one for $36. Looks like they still have another one, too: https://japanyouwant.com/product/new-genjintchi-no-tamagotchi-bandai-japan-1998-2-5
      It's definitely more needy than my other vintage tamas - the hearts drain in a bit over an hour. Care is easy though since you can just spam A and eventually win the game, and you don't have to worry about weight like you do on a Morino. That said, the sprites seem to have the digimon animation programming, because they march across the screen and make expressions in the corner. We'll see how I feel about it once I've run a few generations, but so far I really like it!

      Thanks, Hoky! Since I got 6 Vpets on the way, I think I'll hold off on tamas for awhile XD

      I've heard about the Genjintchi's similarity to the Digimon animations and it's also the case for my Mothra. Just like the Mothra, the Genjintchi has a few secret characters, so you might see quite a few evolutions during your run :^)

  14. Got Gejitchi on my Morino! Man, I love all the characters on this thing. I managed to clean the speaker off a little more so it's loud enough to hear attacks coming, too!

  15. Man it's been just over a year since I truly got into Tamas and other V-pets, and it's been great. I'm never without one now, and there's so much I still have yet to try! Thanks to everyone here for being super kind and welcoming to this hobby. You've all been incredibly helpful and cool! :D

      happy tamanniversary duckplantman

  16. Itchin' to run my Osu/Mesu again...

  17. In my habit of revisiting things from my childhood, I have now also gotten into Dragon Dice. Oh man, such a fun game with so many dorky aspects.

  18. Well, I pulled my Meets out of my pocket and it was back on the clock set... looks like it somehow hard reset itself and I'm back to square one. =/ Bummer too, as  I had just bred a rightous duck-vampire with a wave pompadour. XD

    1. Penguin-keeper

      I've seen a thread on the forums reporting on this same problem. :( My Meets will be arriving soon, so it's a bit disappointing to hear multiple reports of this issue...

    2. Verklighet

      Same here. :(

      Hopefully the March issued ones will not suffer from that issue.

    3. Hoky

      Eh, if it doesn't happen TOO often it won't bother me. :D

  19. I totally didn't know you could get twins on the Meets, but I did!

      Super great. My favorite color tama, but that said, I haven't unlocked all the locations yet, nor have I gotten past gen 2. For some reason, it just feels more 'alive' to me.

      ~SkrillexGotchi~

      I might get the Meets and a Princess Spacey Ver. iD L and make a few JJBA logs involving them o:

      it sounds so exciting. i've luckily found my tamagotchis online to buy for a great price and will hopefully get them by christmas :)

  20. Got my meets! Pics up on the log. Had to stop mid-log to run to the store with my wife to buy lights for our Christmas tree, though. XD

      KidRetro64

      Yess! I can tell you I’m getting a purple magical version! I might do a log too!

  21. Just dawned on me that I've been back into tamas for just about a year now... man, I'm so happy I stumbled across a mini at a gamestop!

  22. Booting up the Uratama again... hopefully I don't get just Mame family this time. XD

  23. Starlink's pretty cool. Not sure if the toy ships are worth it, but they look great at least!

  24. Game season begins... passing up Soul Calibur VI for Starlink, though... we'll see how that goes.

      Knighttchi's Ballad

      Ha ha, I recently learned serious gaming people get a little stressed over the holidays thinking of what to buy. Kinda funny that "near Halloween" immediately becomes "the Holidays" but I suppose it doesn't help I've been singing Christmas carols, snort.

    2. Hoky

      Hoky

      haha, it snowed her in MN on Sunday, and someone was blasting Christmas carols in the car behind me... man, I'm good on no Christmas stuff until after Thanksgiving. XD

      And yeah, Oct-Nov is always game season. I might still get Soul Calibur since I sold a bunch of stuff to get Starlink, but Starlink's really fun so maybe I'll just play that until Red Dead Redemption II comes out.

    3. Knighttchi's Ballad

      Knighttchi's Ballad

      We got a few sparing flakes of snow today! I'd prefer somebody blasting Christmas carols over somebody blasting rap music any day :^) My family only really uses the radio to hear Christmas carols, anyway. Using your logic, it is perfectly acceptable for the Christmasy-ness to start now since we Canadians get Thanksgiving in October XD

  25. Got my Galaxy P2 and Red Glitter P1! They're great!
