Is paying 85 dollars for an english Tamagotchi ID L worth it?

Recommended Posts

I've wanted to buy a english ID L for a while but the price has always scared me away... I am a highschool student with no job so buying this tama would be like an investment. and now I really want one because of how disappointed I am with Tamagotchi Friends...

 

Is it really worth it? :huh:

Well, weigh your options carefully. IDLE is really great b/c it's fully English. However, it does not have anything that the Japanese model doesn't. So if you're on a budget and don't make much money, I'd personally go with the Japanese model, as it's pretty easy to figure out (plus there are always review videos on YouTube). The English model is more of a luxury, as it's just nice to be able to understand the conversation at the park etc.

Ra,

Thank you for your input! I'm looking around and the Japanese model is so much cheaper!

 

so there isn't much of a language barrier? :o

I bought a Japanese iD L because I thought the English version was too expensive, and I haven't had any problems! And I don't understand any Japanese at all. There's some very good instructions for the iD L out there both here on TamaTalk and on TamaZone, and I've found them very, very useful so far. :)

thats great news! I assumed because of the dialouge that the Tamas would be more dependent on text. but if its anything simmilar to the ones I have I could navigate it with my eyes closed.

:P

The only thing I don't understand is the dialogue when you go to the park, but the animations are still so adorable! And when the Tama calls me I can't read the speech bubble, but I just check what it needs through the stats and I'm fine. Once you get a hang of all the options it's really easy to navigate.

      This isn't all that huge, but I couldn't find the answer myself earlier.
      Can you obtain the secret characters on the iD L by connecting to a P's?
      I tested it myself by connecting my iD L and P's 30 times. When it came time for the iD L teen to evolve, he evolved into Maisutatchi (obtained by connecting with the same other iD L 30 times).
       
      I know it seems obvious, but I didn't know, and googling the question didn't help me. So, there you have it.

      Hi friends, I'm new to Tama talk so I apologize if this is somewhere else, but I couldn't find it. 
      I have a mix and would love to connect it with another Tama, but I don't want to get 2 of the same kind. Is there any cross compatibility between gens, maybe connecting a mix and a p's, or so on? 
      Worse comes to worse, I can always get a Sanrio or an anniversary mix, but I'd like to build my collection with different stuff! 
      Thank you! Also so excited to find a group who loves tamagotchi since everyone I talk to is always like "oh yeah, I remember those in the 90s... They're back??"

      So I want to purchase one of these machines, but I don't know which and I am having trouble finding information about the pros and cons on the internet. Which do you like better and why?
       
      Thanks!

      Hi
      I have been interested in trying to buy some Aquapets, since I remembered them from my childhood.
      Does anyone know of any particular sites that ship to the UK?
      Thanks! ♥~

      I’m a student so I don’t have much money. Is there any particular store I can buy cheap tamagotchis? I tried Ebay and they’re pretty good but I was wondering about anything else? I know Japanese stores but I don’t know how to use them. Thank you so much!

      So as some of you may know, I purchased a 20th anniversary edition m!x today, and have been excited all afternoon.

      Well after a bit of a swim and relax I checked my eBay again and I had the most lovely message from the seller, and I thought I would share it here as it really made my day.


       
      I just find it so nice when sellers are willing to help out with questions and have something lovely to say,
      I'm convinced tama enjoyers/sellers/collectors/enthusiasts are the nicest people going
