V1 Nostalgia Log... and a break from life as I know it.

Recommended Posts

Hey, guys!

 

First of all, let me start by saying a few things. It has been a long (LONG) time since I've ventured around the TamaTalk website or into the world of Tamagotchis in general. I have wanted to come back and post again for such a long time and so much has changed. I'm 21 now, in my last year of college, and searching for a job and an apartment. My life has become a roller coaster of trying to make it through my days at college and it has become such a challenge for me to do anything akin to a hobby. Coming back to this website brings back a lot of memories and thoughts of friends past. It was a very special place to me and having the time to come back and begin a log is refreshing. So, with that said, it is now my spring break! What better time to come back and de-stress than now?

 

I chose to start up a V1 because, y'know, why not go a little old school? I originally thought about starting my P1 but alas, no batteries. That always seemed to be a problem for me... All these button batteries scattered around but not a single one has enough power to let me hatch a Tamagotchi. Luckily, I found one in a Music Star I had, so I used that. I never did like the Music Star anyway.

 

This log will follow the life of my V1 Tamagotchi named Dylan (a homage to Bob Dylan because... well do I even need a reason?). I am going to log throughout the first generation which should be the entirety of my spring break; it is questionable if the log will last any longer than that. Once I return to college, I probably won't have time to do this again until the summer, but I will do my best. Hopefully throughout this week, Dylan will live a happy, long life.

 

I set the clock on my Tamagotchi around 11:26 PM tonight, and Dylan hatched from his egg one minute later. I'm sure you can guess what happened between now and then; poops to clean up, games to be played, food to be fed, and tears to be wiped. Because that's what Babytchis do, right?

 

After about an hour or so, Dylan evolved into Marutchi, and is now sleeping. Since it is late, I couldn't keep him awake to flush the toilet or check stats, so Dylan goes to sleep with a poop beside his bed and one empty hunger heart. His lights are out for now, but I will see him in the morning and come back to post another update. That will be it regarding Dylan for the night. I'm hoping he will evolve into an Ichigotchi and that I can keep a watchful eye.

 

As for you guys, feel free to post in this log and say hello! I would love to hear what your thoughts are and how you are faring with your own Tamagotchis. Let me know what you're running right now and if you like older versions better than newer versions or vice versa. Tell me what you'd like to read about regarding Dylan and our spring break adventure! I will certainly post his updates as well as a few of my own. I plan to get out of town this week and Dylan will certainly come along for the ride. :)

 

See you in the next post!

 

Always,

*mimitchi* ♥

 

P.S.: Here is a picture of Dylan from tonight!

Good morning!

 

I thought I would check in before I got ready to start my day. It's been a slow Saturday so far, mostly because I've slacked when it comes to getting out of the bed and doing something with myself. That had a little bit of an affect on Dylan.

 

I woke up at 8 AM to check on him and he seemed fine so I went back to sleep as you do. I woke up again at 10 AM to check him and he had one poop and two hearts missing from both his hungry and happy meters. It's been a while since I've been up to date on the amount of care you have to have to achieve a certain character, so I'm not sure if I've ruined my chances at an Ichigotchi with that or not. Eh, what can ya do?

 

We've been playing the Jump game this morning to lose some weight and we need to play again, as I've been lazy the rest of the morning and fed Dylan snacks (which I'm sure he loves). Right now, he's just bobbing up and down and occasionally rolling around the screen out of boredom. I was considering starting another V1 so that he could have a friend, but I'm not sure that I could keep up with both of them at the moment.

 

Now that I've checked in, I need to pull myself out of bed and do something with my life. It's supposed to be a nice 50 degree day and I'm going to try and find something to do. For now, I'll leave you with a picture of Dylan from this morning and his current stats:

Hey guys!!

 

Today has come to a close and it's been a pretty good one. I saw one of my friends today and we scrounged antique shops and found some of the coolest stuff. I found a sweet transistor radio from the '70s and some pretty cool cameras that I was literally dying to buy, but I always talk myself out of those things because I COULD be using my money for something I actually NEEDED and blah blah blah...

 

And of course, Dylan was along for those excursions. He hasn't been constantly paid attention to, but none of his hearts dropped below two empty today. He would have some times where he was left alone with his messes which I'm sure he didn't appreciate... He should evolve tomorrow if I'm not mistaken. I'm not sure if he took a nap today and if he did, I may have missed turning his lights out (oops... o whale). We've played the jump game a LOT today. I just don't really like the dance game because it goes on forever and it seems like it takes such a long time to complete and progress. Or maybe I'm just impatient. Probably that one.

 

All in all it's been a good day for the both of us. Dylan is now fast asleep with no poops beside him and full meters. He gained another training bar today and he didn't get sick any. Hopefully tomorrow morning I can keep myself awake enough to check him occasionally before I inevitably fall back asleep, but whatever it's spring break. Tamagotchis are certainly more of morning creatures than I am and I am extremely unwilling to change my ways. After all, this is the only time I'm going to manage more than 3 hours of sleep a night.

 

But anyway, with that I'm going to sleep myself. I might spend some time on Minecraft before I go, though. Anyone else into Minecraft? It's been a long time since I've played, but I used to love it. Every time I play I seem to lose track of time to a ridiculous extent.

 

Here is Dylan tonight. Maybe he's dreaming about S'mores Poptarts.

Nice log and one of my favorite versions! :)

I'm pretty sure that Marutchi toddlers always evolve into Ichigotchi teens on the first generation of this version (after that the care levels will have more effect on which teen you get in odd generations - Ichigotchi or Hinotamatchi)

Dylan evolved this morning!

 

Just as I had hoped, he turned into an Ichigotchi despite my failure to clean his poops on time. I can't remember if you can still achieve Gozarutchi and Masktchi from Ichigotchi or not, but I ALWAYS used to get those characters because I'm an awful caretaker so I'm hoping for someone different this time. It's quite the rarity that I find Hanatchi or Kuchipatchi on my screen, so maybe I can get one of them. It's quite easy to get Mametchi I find. If anyone has any tips on how to achieve certain characters on the V1, I'd love to hear your suggestions! Especially the more in-between kind of characters.

 

Since the time moved an hour forward here, I still haven't gotten around to changing Dylan's clock, so he's still an hour behind. That was good for me this morning because he woke up, evolved, and promptly went back to sleep so that I could do the same. He pooped once and his hearts haven't dropped below one empty today. I read somewhere that to achieve a Hanatchi, you have to keep the training somewhere between 3 and 7, so I might try to do that.

 

As of now, Dylan and I are just sitting around. It's a very lazy Sunday.

 

Here is Dylan this morning!

Have a wonderful day today!

Thank you! That seems right - I never really noticed any patterns on the first generations, so I wasn't entirely sure how much care would influence the characters. It's been a while!

 

It's also nice to see a familiar name still active on the forums! :) Hope you are doing well.

Back for tonight's update - I've been a pitiful caretaker today. It's not that I mean to... I've not ran a Tamagotchi in so long that sometimes I forget it's with me. It actually makes me feel bad when I see the little fella in there with a poop beside his bed! Nonetheless, he's not been too bad off. My boyfriend and I went out of the house and enjoyed the nice weather today (we've been snowed in for quite a while) and I put Dylan on pause for around 3 or 4 hours. I just unpaused him not too long ago and left him there for another hour or so; he went to sleep with a poop beside his bed and one heart missing from both happy and hungry.

 

The slight neglect doesn't really concern me though because I'm not really looking for Mametchi - I'd really like to see Kuchipatchi or Hanatchi and I think you achieve those characters with a little less than perfect care. I always heard that Kuchipatchi was lazy anyway and Hanatchi always had problems with that big nose!

 

I'm assuming pausing for a certain amount of time just delays the evolution time by the amount of time he was paused... correct me if I'm wrong. I also just switched the time to account for daylight savings, so that will probably mess up evolution time as well. I hope it's not by too long - I'd like to get through two generations before I have to put my Tamagotchi back into hibernation. This is a time that I'm thankful for the download button so I don't have to really say goodbye to my little pals.

 

So Dylan is sleeping now, and I probably won't make it there for a long time yet. It just isn't in me to fall asleep at 11 PM. Give it about four more hours... :lol:

 

I don't have a picture for tonight. The laziness in me is really taking over at the moment. Just imagine a little Ichigotchi sleeping with a poop beside his bed. Pleasant, huh? ;)

 

Here are Dylan's stats:

 

Hungry: ♥♥♥

Happy: ♥♥♥

See you tomorrow!

Morning, guys!

 

I woke up to find Dylan nearly empty in everything; he had one heart left in both happy and hungry. If I had caught him any later, he would've called for my attention. He had two poops, so I flushed the toilet and fed him and we then played the jump game twice. When it gets near the end of the game, I always get nervous and jump too early.

 

It's only been about an hour or so since I've been awake, so not much has went on since then other than me being neglectful as per use'. What can I say? I've missed sleeping in late.

 

After Dylan was fed and thoroughly entertained, I caught him dancing around on the floor singing to himself. I'll just pretend he was singing Mr. Tambourine Man. Too cliche? ;)

 

Here is a picture of Dylan and his stats:

Back again for the night!

 

I'm really having trouble putting into words how Dylan's day has went without sounding too repetitive, but V1's are very simple so... I feel like I'm not very good in that department. Dylan hasn't had the worst day ever; his hearts never went below two empty and he never had to call for my attention unless he was about to gain a bar in training. It was most of the usual schedule. I often feed him snacks and then play games with him at less frequent points throughout the day, so he's not too small or too big. He's at an in-between weight at the moment.

 

He wasn't on pause any of the day today. I've not been busy enough to have to do that - my day has been pretty bland to say the least. I'm hoping he will evolve within the next few days. I'm excited to see what kind of character he will turn into. I'm fairly certain he hasn't been neglected enough to turn into Masktchi, but we shall see. Before he went to sleep, he took a bath. I caught him in the bath with the attention icon lit up, but as soon as he took a bath, he went straight to bed, and I never got to see why he wanted my attention. I'll assume that's one training bar I've missed.

 

Here he is in the bath!

Happy Tuesday!

 

I woke up to Dylan much in the same shape he was in yesterday; three empty hearts in both happy and hungry and a poop beside him. Again, he had not had time to lose all of his hearts and call for my attention, so I promptly filled them back up before he had the chance. We played the jump game and I finally got over all 30 hurdles! That raised his happy meter back to four full and Dylan lost some weight in the process.

 

That's all that has really happened so far. We're just sitting around now, watching the rain fall outside. Unfortunately for my spring break, it's supposed to rain the entire week...

 

Anyway, I'll check back in tonight! I believe the time to evolve into an adult will be in the next day or so.

 

Here are Dylan's stats:

 

Hungry: ♥♥♥♥

See you tonight!

Today has been an interesting day for Dylan and I. I got to spend my day browsing a local record shop and eating a pound of shrimp for dinner which I can definitely say makes ANY day a good day.

 

It's been a little rough for Dylan being in my care while I'm distracted with all these things and he has had more neglect today than I care to admit. Does it make anybody else feel like an actual terrible person when you neglect your Tamagotchis? I hate admitting it for some reason lol maybe I'm a softie. It's alright though, Dylan has been relatively okay. His hearts haven't dropped below two empty in either hungry or happy today. I just keep forgetting I'm running a Tamagotchi and forget to check on him. I guess that happens when you get used to not having them around anymore.

 

Dylan didn't gain any training bars today. Most of the times that his happy meter dropped, I would feed him snacks but play the jump game in between so that he wouldn't end up too unhealthy. I didn't catch him singing or taking a bath today. He was on pause for a little while today too - probably around two hours or so - so that will delay his evolution time a bit more. He may not change until he is around 5 years old. Or at least I think that's how it works... If anyone knows how pausing affects the evolution time, feel free to let me know.

 

I paused him late in the day with the intention of filling his meters back to full before he went to sleep, but as soon as I unpaused him, he was already in the bed. So Dylan goes to sleep tonight with a poop beside his bed and two hearts missing from hungry and one heart missing from happy. I'm still interested to see what adult will come out of this semi-good caretaking. Sometimes I've managed to pull a Mametchi with care like this somehow. But again, I would reeeally like to see Kuchipatchi. I never could achieve him that often.

 

Here's Dylan tonight asleep with his lights on before I turned them off...

And with that, I'll see you sometime tomorrow! I'm going out of town tomorrow so Dylan may have to be on pause sometimes. I am going to try my best so that doesn't have to happen, but we shall see. Goodnight!

 

Always,

Hey guys!

 

So I have some good and bad news... The good news is, I finally got to get out of town for the day and do some summer shopping at the mall and other places and have a great day in general.

 

The bad news is that - and this will probably come as no surprise - I LEFT DYLAN HOME. UNPAUSED.

 

I was playing with him this morning before I left and I must've just forgot to chuck him in my bag because I came home to find him on my bed and I had a mini freak out and checked him to make sure he wasn't dead... Sure enough, he is still kickin' and is currently asleep. He's a trooper, that's for sure. He had lots of poops beside of him and he was very sick.

 

The other news... He evolved today! I came home to find that he had changed into a Tarakotchi at the ripe age of 4 years. Not the character I was hoping he would be, but Tarakotchi never really showed up on my screens a lot either, so I am content.

 

I hated leaving him in the bed with poops beside him and sick, so I changed the clock to wake him up and fix him up before bed. He is now doing okay, asleep, clean, and healthy again.

 

When the matchmaker comes, I will choose to marry, and hopefully continue one more generation before I have to get back to classes.

 

I will have a picture of Dylan tomorrow. For now, here are his stats:

 

Hungry: ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Happy: ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Training: 3

Age: 4 yr

Weight: 44 lb

 

See you tomorrow! Thanks again for reading!

 

Always,

I love your log! I'm in the same boat as you, actually. Haven't had time to unpause my Tama since school got crazy, but this week, seeing it was my Spring Break, I let my nostalgia get to me and unpaused my v4.5! I've definitely missed it, and I, too, feel bad if I'm a bad caretaker (softie). Anyways, love your writing and hope to hear more about your adventures.

Ah Tarakotchi - I used to see that character from time to time - especially when I wasn't able to give my V1 consistent care! I kind of like him anyway :)

 

If you go to G2 (an even generation) you won't be able to get Hanatchi or Kuchipatchi (they're both only odd gen characters on the V1) - but Robotchi/Androtchi is cute, right? (and as for Gozarutchi, what's not to like?!)

Good Luck :)

Thank you! :) I'm glad you like my log! My caretaking has been so bad this last day and a half. I've just been so lazy and in my mind I'm like..."Eh, he can survive while I'm busy for a few minutes, right?" Then a few minutes turns into an hour and then more hours and a whole day and etc... haha. Thanks for reading, though. Hopefully I can get back on top of my game. :lol:

I love when Tarakotchi shakes his butt and makes happy faces while bobbing around on the screen. He's a spunky little guy.

 

And I do love Robotchi! I don't get him a lot either. I can't seem to find the right balance between perfect care and terrible care to achieve those characters. Gozarutchi is definitely cute too, I used to get him a lot!

So I may or may not have been gone for a day... (shh it's okay lol)

 

Anyway, yesterday I was busy again, but can you blame me on spring break? Dylan has been okay, just some delays in cleaning his messes and he did get sick once yesterday. He did go to sleep with some poops beside him, but I just couldn't let that happen for a second time, so I woke him up and fixed that. We've not been exercising or playing games at all recently. In my defense, he's already turned into an adult, so his weight won't affect the character. Besides - I'd rather him be happy and large than sick and small and unhappy.

 

So far, today has been a drag for the both of us. I think I am going out later tonight, but I don't think I will be so busy as to have to pause Dylan for long periods of time. It's very rainy today. It was perfect weather yesterday, so my boyfriend and I spent time driving around town and exploring nature and watching sunsets. I love days like that - they are very relaxing. It's such a nice break from classes that I never want it to end. I'm just not a very college oriented person and not very school spirited. It's just not my cup of tea - I'd rather be outside or playing music or creating art than going to college and doing chemistry. I'm not in college for what I love to do, but that's a different story for a different day. I don't particularly enjoy the college that I attend either, so I'm REALLY dreading going back. But summer is just two months away! That means I can come back and log again after I finish.

 

That's about it for today, I have a picture of Dylan and his stats today! I'm not sure at what age or time after turning into an adult the matchmaker comes, but hopefully it will be soon!

      Hi I’m going to restart doing a log after not being here for a year. Anyhoo, I still have the same Tamagotchi white color on :). I’ll update later
    • By iTamannadi
      Hello everyone and welcome to my log! 
      I would like to start this log by saying happy new year to all of you and wish you all the best in 2021. I'm sure last year was rough and we all struggled during the unexpected pandemic so please stay strong and safe because clearly the fight is not over, and I hope that this year is going to be the end of it and a beginning for all good things.  
      As you can see from the title that I'm going to log here about my Magical Witch and the Devilgotchi which I am so excited about and for some reason worried at the same time! I will be logging while I'm exploring these two fascinating toys and yes it took me SO long playing with them for what is going on in world, but the time has finally come and I hope you guys will enjoy this post. 
      So today is the day that I finally decided to put some batteries into my new evil babies and the excitement I felt when I turned them on! 
      Starting with the Devilgotchi:
      when I removed the tab I immediately saw to what appears to be  like a smoke that lasted for a few seconds until the bat showed up as you can see below:

      the bat just kept flying and flashing for about 2-3 minutes and then it evolved to Deviltchi:

      a new Devil is born, without really realizing the consequences of raising a devil has just begun! 😈
      I took sometime figuring out the menu and of course fed him and tried to fill his both Hunger and Happy meter. Right after that I played the 'Catch' game, all you have to do is throw a star for your devil to catch it. You need to collect 4 stars in each round to win. As far as I know the game doesn't end unless you press C or lose but I'm not sure about that. 
       
      I actually spent good amount of time playing the game until... he.. slept during one of the rounds and made a very evil sound, not gonna lie I was caught off guard when I saw him sleeping and then suddenly he started smiling while the screen was inverting. Took me a while when I realized that this is him being mischievous and he wouldn't let me continue playing! By that time he stopped doing it so when I went and checked his Devil Power or DP is increased to 50, that means 10 more points were added because I didn't take any action quicker! 
      After that happened I thought I need to keep an eye on this little devil because I'm not allowing this to happen again, so I did that and made sure that every time he misbehaved and tried to be mischievous I will discipline him which is exactly what happened  
      This is him being naughty and not allowing me checking his health status after he beeped: 

      that was the only time I was able to take a pic of how often and quickly he will pull pranks on me which makes me laugh every time I see him sabotaging the games, not allowing me to check his status or even rejecting the food when he calls for it!  
      That helped me reduce his Devil Power a lot a long with 'Shaking Hands' with him. Randomly he will beep while looking at me and giving me a lovely little evil smirk which basically means that he is being friendly and wants peace:

      Ultimately, all I want to trigger is a 'Good End' and a good looking character when he reaches his final stage, all that can be done if I manage to discipline him and make sure the friendship level between us is good. Only time could tell we should just wait and see...
      The Magical Witch:
      After inserting the batteries oh my I couldn't believe I'm actually starting my very first Magical Witch that happens to be the air witch, also called Baluluna. After setting the time I waited for about 5 minutes to finally have my witch arrive! Also I would like to say that the animation is beautiful when there is a moon on the side of the screen that keeps rotating until your witch arrive, thought that was a perfect intro that suits the theme of the toy  

      She was hungry and wasn't feeling well (as she should be I mean who take 5 minutes to show up) I fed her some seeds and snacks to fill her meters up.
      After settling her down, I went and searched about mixing the ingredients to create potions because that's what Magical Witches are about, using magic to either curse or cure another witch. I tried the first time mixing the very first potion that you can make and things did not turn out well...

      the first attempt as you can see above didn't end well, while using the mixing bowl my witch looked funny when suddenly the potion exploded at her haha! She looked a bit sick and it took me a lot of time to actually figure out how to cure her from the explosion and turned out one of the seeds she has in store can actually cure her but needed to be used multiple times. I decided to give her a break for few minutes and go for another try one more time. This time she did well by mixing the ingredients well and we got what we wanted for our very first mix which is mushrooms:

      Each time you successfully mix the ingredients you will get three pieces from the same mix. I gave my witch another break and made sure she is fed and healthy before going for the second potion she has to make. 
      The second mix went very well and it took only one attempt:

      As can be seen, the second item she obtained is a broom, which will help us obtain the third item/food that we will try to mix tomorrow.  
      Paying attecntion to her MP or Magical Power could give us a really good results with the witch behavior and how well she could produce different mixtures, if there's another witch involved that will help it increase even faster but we should be alright with just one.
      The End:
      That was all it for today, I personally am enjoying them both equally and I believe the more is yet to come. Although my Devil keeps beeping while it's asleep as I'm writing this it beeped more than 5 times (now it's 3am where I live) I've always loved the fact that you need to take care of a Devil and that didn't disappoint especially that I have terrible history with vintage tamagotchis but this one is different I can tell.  The Magical witches don't necessarily function as a Tamagotchi but they do look alike. For example the icons are similar, the buttons and how they respond is the same and I think the overall it's simpler gameplay wise. Definitely excited to see what we can do tomorrow so stay tuned.  
      this is the end of today's log, hope you guys enjoyed it please feel free to comment about anything.

      Hey guys!
      The long-anticipated moment has arrived..
      I got my very first Tamagotchi!
      It is the Magic White version of the Tamagotchi ON.
      So in this log, I won't be posting pics, sadly.
      LET THE LOG COMMENCE!
      Friday, 27/11/2020.
      I started up my new Tama, filled in everything, and got ready for my egg to hatch!
      It hatched into.. a girl, which my dad named Daisy. 
      I took care of it, then it took a nap for, like 3 minutes. I woke up the screen to see that it had pooped on the spot.
      Not long after, it had evolved into Chiroritchi, a good care character!
      So I immediately got to getting out and earning gotchi points.
      That's it for now, see ya next time! >w<

      Hello, hello, I'm a long time fan of tamagotchi but a new member to tamatalk! 
      I decided to start a log for the lavender Wonder Garden tamagotchi I just got, which was one part a nostalgia purchase and another part mental health purchase. As silly as it sounds, tamagotchis helped me through depression  and anxiety as a kid. They're very much security blankets to me. 
      However this log won't really record my mental health, just the tamagotchi so don't worry about that.

      Forgive my phone's crummy camera, but I got a baby girl! I've always been more partial to female tamas personally!
      Also yes, that is my personal art! I find tamagotchi's simple designs lend well to being good warm up sketches so expect seeing some doodles my tamas now and then.

      So this morning my Hashizoutchi died at 18 years old.

      It was the longest that I've managed to keep a Tamagotchi ever as far as I can remember. It was on the Tamagotchi Game Boy game, on which I'm playing what I decided to label the "PoorBoy's Tamagotchi". The rules are that you can only take care of your Tamagotchi if the in-game clock matches your real-life clock. I've made a post about it here:
      https://www.tamatalk.com/IB/topic/199133-how-to-make-tamagotchi-for-game-boy-more-like-a-real-tamagotchi/

      Upon its death I was labeled a genius by some stranger aliens who took Venus to their home planet.

      Apparently they have the ability to revive dead Tamagotchi so Venus was revived and made an Honorary Member of... something lol. They dressed him up weidly and that's last time I saw him.

      So as promised, here is my log (@Penguin-keeper) . I'll be covering mostly the 3 Tamagotchi games on Game Boy. I'll be trying to get every character in every game, which I'm sure will keep me occupied for a long time. I'll also mix in some Android virtual pet apps so that the log will hopefully remain fresh and interesting.
      I'm starting with Tamagotchi 1 on GB, since for the time being it's my favourite of the 3 Game Boy games.

      As you can see I've already picked 4 of the eggs, with Venus being the 4th. It's time to hatch that green one which I'll be naming Gaia (I'm uninspiringly naming them after planets, before Venus was Mercury). I wonder what happens when you hatch all the eggs and the last one dies, there has to be a cinematic or something, we'll see.

      So here is Gaia. Since I've been raising Tamagotchis since a very long time and know all the rules, I'm adding myself a new rule to spice things up: for this run, I'm not allowed to check Gaia's stats apart from its age and weight. In real life, your pet or kid doesn't have a hungry and happy meter, you have to guess how it's feeling.
      I've also decided thar Gaia will be a nerd, I'm only going to give it Math training. The only exercise it will be doing will be to maintain its weight. We'll see how it'll grow up and how long it'll live with this education.
      I think that's all for today, I'll try to post everyday if my schedule allows.

      At this point for me, it's less of a tradition to keep a log than it is to start one. Half of the posts on Tamatalk are just going to be all my unfinished logs! ;A; But not this time, my dear readers. For I have dug out a Tamagotchi version that is very special to me, and with... a lot of hesitation, actually, have started it up for the first time in what feels like forever!
      As the title may give away, I am running (and logging!) my pink iD L! Back when I first joined Tamatalk, these were very popular, and also everywhere unlike the listings you see today. I got both my iD Ls - the aforementioned pink version and my now-rare Princess Spacey ver - back in 2013 for less than $100 each, and I'm glad I did because nowadays, oh boy do you have to sell your own soul to get your hands on one mint in box.
      Of course, this comes with its own issues - being that I've had these for seven years now, they've accumulated a ton of scratches, which is where most of my hesitation comes from. For those who aren't in the know, colour Tamagotchis - particularly their screens - are highly prone to scratches if you're not careful, and they can show up real easily on the screen as these annoying rainbow-like textures. My 4U and m!xs have managed to stay safe, luckily, but my iD Ls and my precious little P's have not had the same luck nor fortune. And don't even get me started on their front faceplates - I'd be able to actually afford a mint iD L with the amount of scratches they have.
      However, it is all cosmetic in the end. And it's not like I'm ever getting a new iD L unless I risk it for a used version, so I may as well take you all down with me. I've got a Pac-Man Anniversary Mini/Nano in the mail right now as we speak, so with a little patience I'll hopefully be able to log it soon!  Let's begin!
      ~*~*~*~*~*~
      iD L
      I put some new batteries in a few days ago, and was welcomed by a little Kingyobotchi! For those not in the know, they are the best-care female toddler character on the iD L. I also discovered that my iD L was on its 3rd generation last time I played it - I had previously raised a Kikitchi and an Agetchi, respectively, both of which are bad-care adult characters.
      Determined to take good care of my next Tamagotchi, I proceeded to get the next highest-care teenager, Painaputchi - and didn't look at a growth chart, which is extremely rare for me! I ended up raising an adorable little Chamametchi:

      I forgot how photogenic the iD L was. You can't even see any of the scratches on it's screen!
      (While writing this, I realized I hadn't given Chamametchi a name yet! I searched up the nearest random name generator, and blessed her with the title of London.)
      While Chamametchi isn't the... highest care character out there, she's still very cute (and not a teen, strangely). I decided to go for her Tamatomo Stamps - for those who don't have an iD L, every adult 'gotchi has three special likes that cause them to do a cute little animation + give you what's dubbed a Tamatomo Stamp. You earn the last Tamatomo stamp by having your adult-stage Tamagotchi for 72 hours (or, at least 5 years old, if I recall correctly). You can earn any Tamatomo Stamp in any order, and they're a fun little incentive to spend more time with your tama! Plus, it also gets them stamped in the memory book (which is how I discovered the previous tamas I raised), as well as a bonus cutscene when they get married. 
      Anyway, I decided to go for London's Tamatomo Stamps straight away! We decided to head to the park, as the market was currently being held:

      It's Kuchipatchi's mum! What she's doing here, I have no idea.
      Items at the market are usually marked down by 30%, so I wanted to get a good deal. I accidentally ended up leaving by way of the C button with London in tow.

      It was raining outside when I took this photo! Who knew Tamagotchi Planet had the same weather cycles... and timezone... wait a second.
      We decided to visit again later - for now, it was off to the TamaDepa to get something I thought London would like. The hunt for her Tamatomo stamps was on! I rarely search for these without consulting a guide, so there was an exciting factor to our adventure.
      I quickly swept into the accessories aisle, and bought London a pair of cat ears! It was time for the moment of truth...
        
      ...I mean, she's still happy at least?
      Unfortunately, it was not meant to be. If your Tamagotchi's latest item/accessory/food is Tamatomo-worthy, they'd usually start jumping high in the air with hearts everywhere! But London was quite mellow. She still defied gravity in her celebration, though.
      I didn't want to stop there, however - maybe an outfit was what London was looking for! We went back to the market again, as outfits can be super expensive:
       
      It's Makiko's mum! ...I just remembered that Makiko's name doesn't end in 'tchi'.
      I was running low on money, so we sold off the Tamamori Tree item I got out of the toy seed I planted in London's backyard yesterday. Don't ask.
      Anyway, we had enough money to buy London a lovely red kimono:
       
      I forgot how fun it was to dress up your tamas on the iD L...
      And thus the moment of truth began once again!

      Guess what happened next.
      ...And yet it also was not meant to be! Not only had I spent a ton of gotchi points on two outfits that weren't Tamatomo-worthy, now London looked like a weird anime character. She didn't seem to mind though.

      One last photo before the post gets too big...
      I decided to stop our Tamatomo hunting there for now. I took London to the different locations in the food menu, but none of the meals and snacks there seemed to activate a Tamatomo Stamp... not even the sweetest treats around! ...That, and it ended with me accidentally discovering Chamametchi's least favorite food. By then my pockets were totally empty. I'm sure I'm missing something here... maybe I should be more open to London's tastes and stop assuming that all she likes is pink stuff just by the colour of her ears? The irony is real.
      Next post: more stamp hunting! Meeting a Tama-pet at the park enough times to create a bond with them and take them home... I missed those guys on the 4U and m!x, they were useless but I loved them anyway!
