  1. On the official website the commercial’s thumbnail shows some more new things: 1) Different BG in the app. It shows the old TamaTown we know and love, unlike the Japanese version which takes place in Meets Town. It’s nice that, in a way, TamaTown is making a comeback. Here's the Japanese version for comparison: 2)Also, some hats are from the exclusive Meets Station characters. The one Lovelitchi is wearing is modified from this one, which is less detailed: Memetchi's hat is also different, with redrawn sauce and more pieces of chopped leek. Original: Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t recall any of the special location Mix characters being in the Meets. That Tama in the bottom right corner is obviously mixed from Jellytchi. Will this mean we’re getting some locations from the Mix too? Or, maybe there will be special event characters in the dating game like Mimitchi? Or maybe even (by immense luck) the On can actually connect to Japanese Mix and Meets? Only time will tell.
  2. On Amazon Bandai answered and they said no, because it is the Japanese version. I guess this makes sense because there usually isn’t cross compatibility anyways, but it’s still disappointing.
  3. Yes, that’s how JD spelled it. The Tamagotohi is a fake Color Tama that came out a year after the real one (so, 2009). It has a built in FM radio, IR communication like real Tamagotchis, and photos can be transferred via USB to use it as a digital photo frame. The only known screenshot was posted here on TamaTalk a few years ago, but the link provided there leads to a blank page with no archives. https://www.tamatalk.com/IB/topic/189867-tamagotchi-colour-fake/ A reserve image search revealed that it had originally been shared to another Tamagotchi forum back in 2009. Google Translated English version here. Fun facts- The Tamagotohi originally retailed for $6 USD adjusted for today. If you look closely on the box, it shows drawings of the different characters. User MadamBoss of Tamagochy shared a photo of the toy and box, confirming something: this was made by JiDan. Look at how the model number has “JD” before it. This is how every virtual pet by JiDan (under their original name) is stylized: Ex) Interestingly, the Touma Pet (a recent fake Color by M&D) has a similar model number, only this time it has “OK” before it. (Plus it uses stuff from A-Watch and QPet Quolor.) Where have we seen that before? Oh yeah! Are M&D, OK, and JD related? Who knows. If so, a Bootleg Tamagotchi conspiracy would prove that reality truly is stranger than fiction. The gist: Color Tama fakes are nothing new. And, the Handwarmer Pedometer Handwarmer Powerbank Tamagotchi is the tip of the iceberg for mutant bootlegs. At the moment, there are no known videos, other photos, or old listings. The lack of any info makes it more illusive than even the Tamagezi. This can be considered “lost,” as there is no actual documentation left online. With that being said, if anyone here has more things like pictures or one of these perplexing devices on hand, it would be much appreciated if you could help solve the mysteries surrounding this strange bootleg.
  4. Bandai is on a roll this year! On top of the Tama On there will also be a NA Digimon rerelease:

    https://withthewill.net/threads/21490-Digimon-Re-Release-V-Pet-Images-and-New-Info

    Yay :D

  5. There’s also an official commercial now: https://youtu.be/V3GWrAJ9P-8 Some parts look new (afaik), like how the pet changes like a Tama at 0:18, and the rock concert at 0:25. This will be interesting
  6. Does the QPet Quolor even have a growth pattern? After the baby stage mine grew into Lavuzutchi, who is an adult o_O

      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

      InCyberspace

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

       

  7. The geolocation feature on the app detects what type of place you are at and shows your Tamagotchi going somewhere similar. Ex) If you scan at a restaurant, your Tama will also visit a restaurant. You can even get special items if you scan at a specific retail store during an event.
  8. Charizard makes a cameo in the Touma Pet! 

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

  9. Great find! I was expecting Bandai to either translate one of the older versions or make a new one entirely, but this is way better. I hope Bandai also releases a few of the other versions. Sanrio version in English would be amazing. (Fingers crossed there's compatibility with the Meets, but there probably won't >_<) And yeah, the packaging is comically big. I guess it's like billboards where the more space they take up the more noticeable they are to people passing by. As for the $60 price tag, the $100 Furby Connect from a few years ago, which barely does anything without a smart device, did well so this shouldn't be an issue.
  10. Day 14 Continued The interesting thing about gardening is eventually I could buy the next best seed plus the Rapid Growth serum and it would be more efficient than waiting. Within a matter of minutes I was able complete this goal. The end result was an extra 3000 Gotchipoints, well worth the time and patience for hardly having to do anything. Here’s a tip: Rose seeds cost 1000, Rapid Growth is 250, and the pawn shop pays 2000 for it. At a 750 profit, this is even better than spamming the Work option! After discovering this, I was able to keep repeating it until I had over 10,000 GP. Then it was time for some well deserved rest after all that hard work. Day 15 The QPet is 4, so it can now marry. Here’s what the entire scene looks like: With my new money scheme in play, it is time to rack up even more cash and aim for the best character, assuming this even tracks care. Like mother like... son. Eventually it grew into what it’s supposed to, Ahikurutchi. Huh. Maybe taking good care actually makes it grow normally. I was working on the GIFs for this when it grew so I unfortunately don’t have pics, but it’s basically the same as a normal Tamagotchi growth animation (whenever it actually plays). I’m liking this part so far. The QPet turned out to be really fun even for the simplicity. Hopefully this is making up for the mediocre handwarmer run.
  11. Mine was a V1 Connection. I was very little when I got it, and I have no idea what happened to it. It had a dark blue semi-translucent shell with white buttons. I also had a pink cherry V3 and popcorn V5 Celebrity but those are also long gone unfortunately. I don’t really remember playing with the first two, except for pretending the V3 was a cell phone and playing on TamaTown with dialup :D
  12. 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.

  13. Day 13 Out of the corner of my eye, I saw the screen light up and when I picked it up Chamametchi just stood there and turned into Lavuzutchi. There was no special animation or anything, which is disappointing. She should turn into Makiko next, and then Memepetchi. My question: why didn’t the bootleggers just include the oldies? Or better yet, why did they make the toddlers the oldies? Oh well. For extra money I’ve been growing veggies, which can then be sold at the pawn shop. One of my minor goals in this part is to save enough by just growing plants to eventually plant and sell the most expensive one for extra Gotchipoints. What a seedy-looking cashier. This is what it looks and sounds like when a QPet’s batteries are dying: https://www.dropbox.com/s/sn6gifsqyhdmde7/New%20Recording%2012.m4a?dl=0 Day 14 Lavuzutchi is 3 now, so she’s old enough to work. Selecting that will have your QPet working at a construction site, doing some sort of digging, or whatever that is. This is a great way to get Gotchipoints without even trying. Just push the B button every now and then and wrack up enough to get food or even remodeling. After that, I pawned off some apples for 600 Gotchipoints, with a profit of 200. For happiness, I just spam the Park feature until the meter is full. The QPet will only play with other QPets of the opposite gender. Besides that and the lack of non-raisable characters, it’s the same as the one on the real deal. I’m thinking maybe Lavuzutchi will grow tomorrow morning, but I’m not sure. Maybe it will even happen later today. As a question to everyone, what happens when QPets connect? Is it worth getting another one? @Eggiweg Thank you! I’m still getting the hang of this.
  14. Day 10 On no! Dan died after being left alone for too long! Not to worry. Yes, a Tamagotchi with a revive option. That totally doesn’t defeat the purpose of the game. This is the last day so any additional photos taken in the future will be at either of these 2 links: https://postimg.cc/gallery/21dlqs3pi/ https://postimg.cc/gallery/ I did a reset to see if this thing can save your progress. Apparently, it does. I pushed the super-tiny reset button on the front and went through the usual time set, discovering that it wasn’t a hard reset. Soft resetting will only reset your pet’s stats, and if you turned the volume off it will be turned back on. This Tamagotchci does not keep age or Discipline, so you only have to feed it food and snacks and it will be back to normal. With that out of the way, let’s take a look at the QPet Quolor. This next portion will cover everything from marriage to birth, growing up, and then death. It might not even take a full week to go through all of that, but we’ll see. Day 11 I got mine last year not too long after they came out. This bootleg interested me because a few years before getting back into Tamagotchis I saw the Tamagezi come and go, and passed every opportunity to get one. By the time I became a fan again, they were all gone! Then suddenly, this entirely new bootleg popped out of nowhere. Is it the same in quality? Not by a long run, but for a bootleg it’s not bad at all. This pet is the first color Tama I’ve seen to feature 2 languages built in. There isn’t nearly as much character dialogue than in an official, but it’s nice being able to have that option. When I put the batteries in, I discovered that it had saved my previous Tamagotchi from my last run. It’s a 5-year-old Ahirukutchi, who had grown from Kinotchi to Mametchi and Kikitchi. Woah. So from my understanding, the first character you pick will be the adult for the first generation, and from then on it’s different. I can’t tell if it actually keeps track of care, but doing the bare minimum might make you get Mametchi. How ironic. And now for one of the most disturbing moments in virtual pet history. Umm, what? Ahurukutchi is a toddler character <____< Anyways... The baby character will always follow a pattern, being the opposite gender of the parent. The name you enter at the beginning will be the same for every single one as long as it doesn’t die or get reset. I usually just take the bare minimum care with the QPet for the first 2 days. Even if the Tama is determined by health, what’s the point if I can just reset and choose? The QPet Quolor omits many of the original Tamagotchi Color features, but there are a few originals in their place. Let’s have a look at the School. This option is available until day 3, where it is replaced with Work. Solve a simple arithmetic problem, and your Tama will become happy. Get it wrong and it becomes shocked. As with most of the new additions, it doesn’t seem do anything except simulate real life. Again with the ToumaPet (can you tell what fake I want to get next?) this feature was also carried over, further proving that M&D also made that. Afterwards, a few hours went by and while I was doing homework it grew into Chamametchi! Day 12 When I checked on Chamametchi this is what was in the living room. The QPet has little holiday decorations like the real one does, except in the QPetthey’re all Chinese holidays. A while ago I found a list that had all of the holidays, but now I can’t find it -__- Go figure. One of the main Tamagotchi Color features that sort of got included was the Happy item quest. The only example I’ve been able to find on the QPet is when there’s a heart-shaped cloud outside But since this thing doesn’t keep track of all the secrets you’ve found, there’s no real incentive to find them all. Additionally, many of the items from the original were removed. Like I said, this is my first Tama log so if I’m doing this wrong let me know. And as always, if there are any comments/questions about what’s currently being ran please comment and I will answer in the next entry.
  15. Here's another one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tamagotchi-Knockoff-Tamagezi/173888730835?hash=item287c9376d3:g:9UsAAOSwkHlcx7M5 The starting price is $200 though...
  16. Day 10 On no! Dan died after being left alone for too long! Not to worry. Yes, a Tamagotchi with a revive option. That totally doesn’t defeat the purpose of the game. *Tomorrow is the final day for this fake Tama. Any additional photos taken in the future will be here* Also, I was thinking of getting one of these pen vpets. Not a guarantee, but I’m kind of tempted because the programming is from a rare 90’s multipet. Each pet has their own growth stages and even animation, and it seems really neat.
  17. Do the original Giga Pets have a specific bedtime? I tried checking the official manuals but they don't say.

  18. Day 8 Meet Dan. Say hi, Dan! Today I didn’t do much outside of basic care, but I did manage to get one more very special closeup... The Bootleg Log mascot! Day 9 Dan’s happiness dropped by 2 after I left the handwarmer alone for a while. This was a great opportunity to get some snaps of the games. There are 8 in total. In the “A-Watch” thread under Tamagotchi Cousins I linked a video from Ashens (of all people) where he reviewed a bootleg GameBoy. Just about every game on this comes from that system. These games have also appeared on the Touma Pet, another fake Tamagotchi that came out a few weeks ago. But more on that on a later day. My favorite is this bubble dodging game. It’s really frustrating trying to play on such a small screen, but it was mildly addicting trying to score 100. The handwarmer also has the basic Tamagotchi Color games. The weirdest is this game where you have to catch fruit falling from a fighter jet while avoiding bombs. What?! The second weirdest is a game where you have to control a bridge to get the jumping bears across the lava. If one falls in, it’s game over. Poor panda The last one I played was the driving game. It’s a bare bones driving sim that hardly counts as a game. There are no objectives like collecting items or racing. It’s just driving for 100 seconds. The speed can go all the way up to at least 300 kmh, but I can’t stand anything more than the default 100. After that, Dan played in a thunderstorm O_o Oh yeah, and did I mention this thing has a built in pedometer? In order for it to detect steps, you have to hold it sideways and carry it the entire time. I don’t think it’s very accurate. I took, like, 20 steps and it said 80 when I checked it, and this is after I calibrated my height and weight correctly. Like most cheap pedometers, it uses a little metal ball inside that clanks around, so the results are to be expected. One last thing: This time I had the sound on when it happened. It makes all sorts of disgusting noises when it "goes". Well, points for realism I guess 🤢 Also, it makes QPet noises afterwards. Maybe this was a quick cash grab by M&D for the winter season?? Who knows.
  19. Day 7 Victory! More closeups! Sunny randomly got sick so I gave her some tea again. Her happiness then went down by 2, so I sent her to the park to play. https://postimg.cc/gallery/37zz8jlja/ It also began to rain. Food for thought: Would this count as cannibalism? Edit: This is the last of Sunny. Tomorrow she will be replaced with Kikitchi.
  20. When I woke up there were 3 poops and Sunny got sick from it. This was an easy fix. After cleaning the mess she drank some tea at the morgue from the original Tamagotchi Color. The tea part must be original since I don’t recall any Tamagotchis having a choice besides medicine. Today I put Sunny in her mango costume, which is definitely one of the funnier ones: These things don’t have incentives like growth stages or Gotchi points, so Sunny will be cared for one last day before I show off the other character and some of the games. After 2 days of trying, I finally managed to get a closeup of Sunny: I will try to get one of her in the pineapple costume tomorrow. There are also a few Kikitchi costumes I want to try and snap like the Doraemon costume.
  21. Sorry for the delay, I haven’t had the time to continue my log until now. I will be running this handwarmer pet for a week. These don’t have a specific product name, but on Aliexpress they show up under “Handwarmer pet.” If you want to learn more about the programming and the watch version, see the “OK by A-Watch” thread under Tamagotchi Cousins. Day 5 It begins! I chose Ichigotchi and named her Sunny. I didn’t end up having to do much after that besides feeding and cleaning. Hungry and happiness take 2 meals to fill each heart, and there are no penalties for using lots of snacks. There’s also a separate health meter used to measure when the Tamagotchi will die from neglect. Another way to increase happiness is by playing minigames, many of which are similar to those on the new Touma Pet that came out recently. I’m convinced they’re by the same company because of that, which might actually be M&D because of similarities between the QPet Quolor and the other two. The “warm pet” is very easy to care for, but there are also lots of costumes and it’s always nice getting to mix it up. Which costume should Sunny wear next?: • Tomato • Pineapple • Mango Also, if you have any questions then I will answer them in the next entry. Thanks for reading and again, my apologies for the massive delay. •On a different note, the handwarmer function is nice. It heats up quickly and can get very warm. Fortunately, this can be turned off. From my experience the Tamagotchi side of the unit doesn’t get hot from it either. I haven’t tried the power bank function yet, though.
  22. 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.

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