  1. My Tamagotchi Meets randomly turned off even though I just replaced the batteries... Does anyone know why and/or how to fix it? I think this is the second time it’s happened.

    (Btw I’ll be back with another Bootleg Log entry soon.)

      @iTamannadi It wasn't responding to button presses. Normally it lags, but it just straight up wouldn't respond a few hours after putting in fresh ones. @Eggiweg Yes,  it showed the normal boot screen after the batteries were changed. The incident happened a few hours later. I ended up using the reset button, which did the trick and without any data loss.

      And also, there wasn't any sort of dead battery screen, so it could not have been related to that.

      I had this same problem with my first unit. Did it end up working?

    4. OneSummerDream


      @kbutt Yes. It’s been a few days and the glitch has not happened since. Is yours a Tamagotchi On or the original Meets? I wonder if Bandai fixed this.

  2. Turns out the Meets is compatible with the Tama On app. I’m so thankful for this 😌

  3. Has anyone here gotten one of the new English Digivices yet? If so, how are they?

      @Save_Tamagotchis You’re lucky if you get your Digimon today. I preordered from GameStop and their release date got moved again to August 1. 

    3. Save_Tamagotchis


      @OneSummerDream Oh! I thought you guys were talking about the Tamagotchi ON's not the Digimon virtual pets.

    4. Eggiweg


      They get sick pretty often from poop.  The device itself is pretty cool and it's a nice remake of the original with extra features, though I'm not a fan of the evolution animation being 0.2 seconds long.

  4. Managed to get some fake Tamagotchi Connections. This will be interesting.

      Ooh, interesting! What types?

    3. OneSummerDream


      @Kurb Yes :)

      @Penguin-keeper  JiDan V3 and a fake V1 by "TS."

  5. It turns out the English Anniversary Digivice isn’t coming out until the 15th *sigh* It was originally supposed to be yesterday.

  6. For those thinking of getting one, there’s now a new version of the QPet Quolor with spec upgrades and a charging feature. Look at all those bootleg Tamagotchi characters :D 

  7. Does anyone know if JiDan bootleg Tamagotchis have a matchmaker, or do they require a second device? Also, can they marry real Tamagotchi Connections? 

  8. Bandai is on a roll this year! On top of the Tama On there will also be a NA Digimon rerelease:

    Yay :D

  9. Does the QPet Quolor even have a growth pattern? After the baby stage mine grew into Lavuzutchi, who is an adult o_O 

    1. InCyberspace


      Mine grew from baby straight into Kutchipatchi. Not sure if they can change. I hope so.

    2. OneSummerDream


      @InCyberspace It will change by age 3. I just found out it does have growth patterns, just really weird ones. Ex) Makiko: baby> Lavuzutchi> Makiko. Kuchipatchi can be an adult, but it can also be the teenage stage. You might end up with ShimaShimatchi. 

    3. InCyberspace


      Thanks for letting me know. Looking forward to what's to come!


  10. Charizard makes a cameo in the Touma Pet! 

    spacer.pngIt’s an edit of the sprite from GS. 

  11. Here’s a useful QPet Quolor tip: save up to buy Rose seeds and Rapid Growth ($1250 total), then keep growing and selling it to the Pawn Shop until you have a lot of Gotchipoints. Each time gives a profit of $750, so it’s definitely worth a try.

  12. Do the original Giga Pets have a specific bedtime? I tried checking the official manuals but they don't say.

  13. For fun I tried doing a ROM test on my 2018 P2 but instead it was a sound effect test. Here’s a pic of what it looks like. There are 17 total.

      That shell is gorgeous! Did you expect this reaction? XD It's always interesting seeing the programming side of tamas.

    2. OneSummerDream


      @Knighttchi's Ballad I honestly wasn’t expecting this... in fact I kind of freaked out at first lol

  14. Just my 2 cents, but I think the Touma Pet knockoff is made by the same people who made the Hand Warmer Tamagotchi. Both have similar minigames and use Furby sounds.

    1. OneSummerDream


      Also I'll run the handwarmer next for my bootleg log. It will be nice and easy.

  15. Just my 2 cents, but I think the Touma Pet knockoff is made by the same people who made the Hand Warmer Tamagotchi. Both have similar minigames and use Furby sounds.

  16. Here's the Digimon rerelease rumor I mentioned in the Connection thread:

  17. For anyone curious about the Digimon knockoff, here are some scans of the package:

    They were sort of trying to ape the anniversary Digimon Pendulums. The instructions are also in Chinese and English so I’ll scan those too. Expect to see this in my upcoming bootleg log!

      The pokeball color pet isn't a virtual pet at all.  It's more of a battling game where you clear a series of levels by defeating a certain number of monsters.  There are these cards you can scan to get monsters and clothing in game.

    3. Hoky


      Wait there's a HANDWARMER oddpet??? XD

    4. OneSummerDream


      @Hoky Yes! And I will be running that one as well. If you want to see pics, I posted some in the “OK by A-Watch” thread over in Tamagotchi Cousins.

  18. If I did a bootleg log, which should be ran first?:

    1. Nana Moon (so hard...), 2. QPet Quolor, 3. Jia Yuan, 4. Fake Gyaoppi, 5. Handwarmer (See: A-Watch thread), or 6. Digimon Knockoff

    1. Jhud


      I wouldn't call Nana Moon a knockoff since it's kind of its original thing, it even has its own show and everything, just happens to be produced by a company that makes knockoffs.

    2. Eggiweg


      Whichever one you want to run.  I'd love to see what the digimon knockoff is like though ^^

    3. OneSummerDream



      True, but I thought I’d throw it in anyways since it’s Tamagotchi-inspired.

  19. I was running my QPet Quolor and my Kikitchi grew into Ahirukutchi... This was after my Mametchi grew into Kikitchi 😦

      i bought a 9-in-1 qpet. they do not have 9 pets. false advertising.. i only got dogs....:(

    3. OneSummerDream


      Aww :/ I felt that was the case. Thanks for confirming. I guess it’s just 9 total between the 3 versions.

    4. OneSummerDream


      One last thing about the Quolor... Having Ahirukutchi at age 3 means stuff like this can happen:

      Pic of it working

      I’ll post again if it changes, since it still needs to turn into Kuchipatchi and then Shimashimatchi.

  20. Uh for the rerelease Tamagotchis does accidentally disciplining it count as a care miss? I’m trying to get Zatchi again and am very close (only a day or two to go) but accidentally chose that instead of the scale -_-

    1. Penguin-keeper


      You can't accidentally discipline them, as far as I know - they just look annoyed about it, but it shouldn't have any effect, at least as far as I'm aware.

    2. OneSummerDream


      Oh, okay *phew*

  21. Does anyone know if the GPS feature in the Meets app works outside of Japan?

    1. Verklighet


      I did not know that was a feature, that's cool. 

    2. OneSummerDream


      Yeah I was surprised when I first saw it. Apparently if you use the Meets app and use the GPS feature the Tamagotchi will play special animations depending on where you go. The app shows a Tamagotchi going to a restaurant. I’m not sure 100% how it works since I don’t know Japanese, but that’s the gist of it.

  22. 254-A8-CF1-E147-4167-9-FDB-E854-A3-DBBA4Well, there goes my Pochitchi run ._.


  23. For those curious about customization, here are the dimensions of a 90's Tamagotchi background:

    Length and Width of Paper: 2.5x2.5 cm

    Length and Width of the icon sections: 25x7 mm 

    And if you guys want I can do a full tutorial :) Here's how mine came out. So shiny!

      It’s actually not that hard. The only thing I had issues with were the rubber LCD connectors, but some rubbing alcohol did the trick.

      It’s actually kind of neat. I found out that, unlike the 90’s models, these new ones use a small spring to connect the “brain” to the speaker (instead of wires). No wonder the sound glitches so much!


    3. AnniChu


      Huh, interesting! Maybe I'll pick up one and try it out! (so I won't be too disappointed if I break it instead of one of my nice ones.) Do you think that it might be possible to remove the springs and replace them with wires, so the sound quality will be better?

    4. OneSummerDream


      Maybe? Honestly, I don't know. Here's some stuff on here and YT that might help a little:

      Not really the same thing, but hopefully both can provide some help.

  24. Does anyone know what size/dimenstions to use when customizing a 90's Tamagotchi background? Also, is regular printer paper okay?

  25. I ordered one of the fake handwarmer Tamas and will add some pics to the A-Watch thread when it comes. I'm excited to see all the different characters and costumes especially after seeing Hamburger Ichigotchi!

    1. anasmilkbar


      nice!!! lookin forward to your additions to the thread!

    2. rainbowkiwibird


      Ooh, I've always been curious about those. Thanks for your contribution!
