Visiting Harajuku - which tamas to buy?

Recommended Posts

Okay hey. So I have 4 questions for y'all. I'd really appreciate it if you answered them..

 

1. I'm going to visit Harajuku in a week. I was wondering what versions of Tamagotchi can you find? Are they all Japanese id Ls and P's?

 

2. I am thinking of getting a v6/Music Star. This sounds crazy but I find my v4.5 a little too easy and simple for me. Do you think I should get one?

 

3. Does buying a used Tama matter? If I restart I can change the username, right? And erase all data?

 

4. Can a Japanese connection version connect with an English connection version?

 

Thanks so much!

OK here we go!

 

1. You can find almost any tamagotchi In Japan in general if you know where to look. Harajuku has the tamadepa which will have all the newest tamagotchi stuff like the 4us and the p's plus merch. For older tamas id recommend going to akihabara which is the anime,technology town of Tokyo you'll be able to take a train there it shouldn't be too far from harajuku. There you can find all sorts of old toy stores and anime shops which sell old and new merch and if your lucky all sorts of tamagotchi toys.

 

2. A v6 is a massive step in my opinion from a v4.5 they are defiantly fact, the most feature packed tamagothci of all English versions as it combines all v1-5 features and technology into one with new features too, tamatown isn't usable but the rest make it very in-depth and the fact you actually have to take time to raise your Tama to become a music star is quite difficult and challenging.

 

3. No once you press reset or pop new batteries in you can choose download to continue from where the previous owner left off or reset to start anew.

 

4.and no unfortunately the technology is too different between a Japanese and English version so they won't except for the tamagotchi v5 series or famitama in Japan which are known to be the "global family tamagotchi" which will connect despite the different language.

Okay thanks so much! I appreciate it a lot.

 

Um so if the v6 is a huge step... what Connection do you suggest is a bit more challenging? But there are Connection Tamas in TamaDepa, right?

Connections are long gone. You would be lucky to find an ID L at the TamaDepa. I recommened buying a 4U or P's or both, and get pierces and touch cards

Other challenging Tamas I'd suggest would be the later japanese connection series like the entama or uratama which are the japanese v4 and 4.5 however they are a lot different in the way you raise them, various features are different than the English ones too the tamatown for them made items easier but you can also get things like the Tama deka or kakeibo which connect specifically to them just look up those names and you'll see what I mean, the kakeibo is like a banker for your Tama and let's you get items and is in the shape of a touch tablet almost and there are the dekas which also give your Tama more money etc these are good accessories that also make the toy more feature filled. I'd also suggest the tamasuku which is a tamagotchi but instead of taking care of a pet, you take care of a class of pets, challenging in a different way as you mostly play games and collect characters but it's a good change of pace.

 

All these may be sold like I said in toy and hobby shops in akihabara just look for a shop that may sell figures or toys but not new looking and that may be your best chance at finding old treasures.

Thanks a lot! I think I'll go for an id L but hey if the pierces of the 4U and the P's are there... might as well get a P instead.

      First of all, I am a new user here. I look forward to my time here, and hope I can get answers to some of my questions (I have quite a lot of them )
      Anyway, the title basically explains it; I never get any of the Kuchi teens on the V4.5 (Kometchi, Ura Young Yattatchi, Boxertchi, and Yakantchi). No matter WHAT I do, I always, without fail, get Daiyatchi or Ura Young Memetchi from KuchiTamatchi, and Ura Young Violetchi from Kuribotchi. I've tried searching this problem, but haven't really found anything. Does anyone know if there might be anything I'm doing that could be causing this, or if there's anything I could do to prevent this? Because I never used to have this problem until recently, and I don't have this problem at all on the V4...

      I was just wondering; does anybody here have the following episodes dubbed in English?
      1. Watch Out! Anpan Detective is Here! (episode 9, part 1)
      2. Stop it Right There! Thief Papillon! (episode 9, part 2)
      3. KuroMametchi Finds His Coolness (with the opening scene and the full "Bread and Milk Dance" scene)
      4. Is He a Myth? The Kuchipatchi of Truth (episode 26, part 1)
      If you have or remember anything about them, please tell me (send a link if you have them)! I would greatly appreciate it if you do! 😄

      The 4U is a Japan exclusive and when bought can only be viewed in Japanese, but this guide will help you understand what is being said in English.
       
      There are some guides online that can be print out, and there are some guides on YouTube as well.
       
      First, I'm going to give the icons and their options.
       
      The first icon on the top.
      -Status
      - Profile
      - Settings.
       
      Status- has four different screens.
      -1st screen is Hunger/Happiness.
      -the meter of happiness will grow and eventually form a circle when your Tama is fully grown.
      - the hunger meter goes up to six rice balls. If you see an empty space you need to feed your Tama.
       
      -2nd screen is Information about your Tama.
      -name of Tama
      - Gender
      - age
      - weight
      - $$$
       
      -3rd screen shares the skill badges your Tama has/doesn't have.
      -There are two sections to these skills.
      1st skills- Basic Skills
      - These include Potty Training, Cleaning, and Bathing
      -these skills are achieved during the toddler stage of your Tama through proper prompting, praise, and scolding. Different icons will appear and you will need to be attentive if you want these badges. Poo icon when shown you need to have your Tama use the toilet, afterward, praise your Tama. Cleaning icon will show around 6pm. Your Tama will make a mess from blocks and it needs to vacuum. After Tama does action, make sure to praise it. Toothbrush icon happens before bedtime. After brushing teeth and taking bath make sure to praise Tama. These actions only need to be done a few times to earn the badge.
      2nd skills-Special Skills
      -These skills are learned when your Tama can attend school. After so many lessons your Tama will complete the class and receive a badge of said skill. There are five different classes your Tama can take, and up to five badges can be earned. Science, Fashion, Sports, Art, and Cooking.
       
      -4th screen shows a clover.
      -This clover represents friendship points.
      -You need to learn what is your Tama's favorite foods or items it loves. There are three. My current Tama has a favorite meal, snack, and piece of clothing, for example. The last point appears after having your Tama for 72 hours. When you have all four the clover will be colored.

      Stages Of A Tamagotchi
       
      -Baby
      -Toddler
      -Adult
      (teenager is skipped)
       
      - Another look? Your tamagotchi can evolve into another stage as an adult. I think it is referred to as a personality stage. I think this relates to the happiness meter and the likes of your tamagotchi.
       
      Filling Happiness Meter
      Make sure to find out your tama's favorite food and snack. Some food your tama will not like.
      Make sure to play games with your tama.
      Have your tama go to class when it is an adult.
      Have your tama go to the park.
      Have your tama play with toys, clothes, and accessories. Some toys your tama will not like.
      You can interact with your tama not only through talking, but also by pressing © button (right button).
       
      Backyard of Tama House
      To visit the backyard of your Tama all you have to do is press the middle button ( when no icons are selected.
       
      While in the backyard you will be able to see the weather conditions. Sometimes your tama may write a letter, chase a butterfly, or more.
       
      During certain times a vendor will stop by and you can buy food.
       
      During certain times, when your tama is an adult, other tamas will stop by and request something. Depending on what skill badges your tama has earned will determine how well your tama performs at the task given. Your tama could earn up to 2,000g. For example, if your tama has the science badge, and the visitor needs help with a rocket ship, you will be completely successful and earn 2,000g. Other tasks you can earn 1,000g.
       
      Dowload?
      Mr. Blinky has made an app for android phones. If you happen to have one, you will be able to download a restore patch (do this first,) and then an english patch. The english patch will change icon wording to english. This won't change when your tama or other tamas talk however, that will still be in Japanese.
       
      The app also has toys, food, clothing, accessories, games (you can download only two), and other characters.
       
      Hopefully this helps a little bit!!!! If you have anything else to add, please leave in the comments

      So I got the letter offering the jobs, and I open it. The problem is, I took too long in deciding what job I wanted and it exited out of the screen! Does this mean my Tama will be jobless? Or does it give you another chance to pick?
       
      Oh, and if anyone has any information on what spiritual jobs there are and how to play them, that would be awesome.
       
      Thank you so much!

      I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but Tamagotchis ar really sucky parents! I'm not exactly sure how it goes on other versions, but for V4.5, it goes a little something like this.
       
      The Matchmaker brings several partners for you to pick for your Tama. Once you've found one suitable for your virtual pet, the matchmaker introduces the two. They immediately fall in love and get married. They also immediately, decide to have a child. One of the two parents decides they didn't want a child, leaves it with their partner, and is never to be seen again. You're left to care for your Tama and it's new baby.
       
      At first this isn't so bad. The parent that was left caring for the child is doing their job, and the most you've had to do for the baby is give it some medicine. Night approaches, you fall asleep, wake up on the morning only to find the baby all by itself, as orphaned as can be. You've spent DAYS keeping the parent alive and thriving, and this is the thanks you get? I love you too Mametchi...
       
       
      I'm actually really happy that this happenes though. It saves you the heartbreak of letting your Tama die just to raise a new one. It's also pretty darn adorable. Yes, I know you can call the parents of the child on the cell phone but still, why'd they leave?
       
      Oh, while we're on the topic of calling parents, if your Tama is on its first generation, try giving the parents a call. The number is AABA CCBB (for V4.5). Have you done it yet? No? Well if you can't for the many reasons there are, you'll be greeted by a very sad little Tama and beeps that sound as if nobody is answering a phone. Your Tama is sad because they know you're calling their parents and they know nobody is going to answer. Isn't that wonderful?
       
      If I'm missing some explanation on to why this all happens the way it does, please tell me in the comments. I'm just a ignorant little child, so please enlighten me. Oh, don't think I'm complaining about anything, I absolutely love my Tamagotchi and I wouldn't change it in any way. I hope you enjoyed me ranting over nothing, and have a wonderful rest of your day. Or night. Whenever you're reading this.
