Christmas in July! (A Santagotch log)

Recommended Posts

So I've decided to put my iD L on pause mainly because I'm getting sick of how needy the dang thing is, and my P1 needs a companion because I'm only running my Angel, Lemon, at night. So I present for everyone's enjoyment...








Santagotch!! This is the first time I'm doing jolly old Saint Santaclautch, and there isn't too much information on him so I'm pretty much going into this completely blind. I'm hoping this log will be informative for anyone else out there wanting to get a Santagotch!!

Ok, Let's start this thing!!






First thing you'll notice is you have to set the date. Month is on the top, day is on the bottom. The Santagotch needs the date because of the advent calendar, which I'll explain later.




Next you'll set the time. So far Santa hasn't gone to sleep yet and I'm writing this log at 11:20pm. Maybe he doesn't sleep? There is no light icon on the Santagotch that I can find.




And then we wait! It takes 5 minutes for Santa to emerge from his bouncy house. The animation on the house is super cute. It bounces up and down, and the chimney makes little puffs of smoke. Once the 5 minutes are up though, the first couple lines from Jingle Bells play and...






Santaclautch has arrived!! The icons on the main screen are as follows, from top left to bottom right (these are not exact translations, by the way, I'm just calling them these based on what they do):

1. Stats

2. Food

3. Game

4. Inventory

5. Super Kutchipatchi

6. Advent Calendar

7. TV

8. Attention

The stats icon gives you two options. The first one is how Santa is doing, and the second is his food storage. Apparently this Tamagotchi eats when it wants to and DOESN'T POOP OMG HALLELUJAH!!! :D :D :D




My Santa is currently 100 years old and weighs 101... g? Surely that isn't grams, but whatever.




This apparently is distance traveled. The exact translation is simply, "way." I'm assuming at some point I'll see a cutscene where he visits the house of a Tamagotchi and gives them a present. There isn't a praise icon on this unit, so I'm going to guess he will just do it automatically. He knows it's his duty as Santaclautch!!




This is how close he is to being the actual Santa Claus. From what I've read, every time Santaclautch uses an item from the Advent Calendar and creates a piece of clothing that makes him more like Santa, a bell is filled. So far, nothing on this little guy.




I'm not sure the exact translation on this one, but I'm assuming it's the happiness meter.

And this is the hunger meter. The direct translation is "stomach," which is adorable. Apparently this guy eats when he wants to, as stated before. When you feed him the first bit of food he actually eats it, then he stores the rest away for later. THIS IS SO CONVENIENT I LOVE IT OMG






When you go to the food storage option on the stats icon, you can see how much food and candy Santa has stored away. The food is little rice bowls, and the candy is cake. The usual.




And here little Santaclautch is!! Ain't he precious. And naked. Oh my.

After stocking up his fridge, I decided we should play the game for a bit. Santagotch has one game: you go down one of three chimneys to try to find the sleeping Tamagotchi.

Pick a chimney...




Down he goes!!




Success!! No presents were left for the sleeping little Memetchi, but Santa was certainly happy that he found someone!


But wait... what happens if you pick the wrong chimney??




Oops! Covered in soot!!

I decided to check the Advent Calendar next. Each day you get an item, and Santaclautch can use the item to make something useless, or something that will make him look more like Santa Claus. I'm pretty sure the item you get is random, and you can have more than one of the same item in Santa's inventory.






Success! A thing! (I'm guessing it's a ball of yarn)




I checked his inventory to see if he could use the item to make something Santa-like.






Work that magic, boy!!




He made a beanie cap!!




And now he's a rad, rad, snowboarding dude. Not quite Santa Claus, but oh well. We shall try again tomorrow!!


I went and checked the TV next, but not much was going on there.




A cute little fella is looking at his wreath. Super cute!!


At 11:30pm on the dot, Santa went to bed in a tent. The lights went dark automatically. Cool!




Sweet dreams, buddy!!

Day 2!! I love this little Santaclautch. Love love love LOVE!!! :D :D :D


He was up and waking around when I checked him this morning, and it was around 9:25 am so I'm assuming he woke up at 9 or earlier. His Happy was only missing two hearts and he was down to one Hunger heart, but his fridge was full so I figured I'd wait for him to eat and play the chimney game for a bit instead. After the game, I was up and about and heard some jingling!! (The beeps on the Santagotch aren't beeps, they're more like bells, which is extremely fitting.)






He was eating! (And yes, I let him sleep in my little knitted Tamagotchi nest for the night. He is actually still in it because I'm afraid to touch the case and scuff the paint ;^; )


Next, I checked on the TV.




The baby was now a toddler, and he is putting up a tree! The animation made it look like he was throwing glitter at it; it was kind of weird. I can only guess he was actually supposed to be watering it or something.


Then I went to the Advent Calendar and got today's item! It was a roll of wrapping paper? I think?








He made a little tunic!!

Now he's a- wait. I actually have no idea what this could be. He looks the same as he did in his first form, but his pants are striped and there's a little string coming out of the back of his head. You can also tell that he's wearing tiny little shoes.




Yeah I've got nothing. Also, if you'll notice in the first bit the pictures of him eating are actually in this new form. I couldn't get to my camera fast enough when he started eating the first time. Sorry for the continuity error!! :(


So I went about my day as usual (Thankfully I didn't have to work today, as Tuesdays are when my boyfriend gets a group of us together at my house for our Vampire the Masquerade game! We're nerds, I know :P ) and after a couple hours heard a rapid jingle! I, having never heard the Santagotch make that sound before, grabbed my camera and rushed over...




He was gone!!! :o

Thankfully I had read about this and was prepared. See, sometimes Santa doesn't want to be Santa! That's where the icon on the bottom left comes in. That icon summons Super Kuchipatchi to fetch Santaclautch and bring him back on screen.








The only thing hurt was his pride.


He actually disappeared three times today!! Once early morning, again in the mid afternoon, and again about an hour before he went to bed. This dude is a TERRIBLE Santa!! :o Thankfully, every time he leaves the jingle plays to let you know something's up. I've read that if you don't call Super Kuchipatchi in time, Santaclautch will actually leave for good and return to his cabin, forcing you to start the unit all over again. So, basically, you have to have the sound on and be listening for it at all times. For that reason I'm hoping I can leave him on pause for most of the time while I'm at work tomorrow. Other than that, he is the most self-sufficient Tamagotchi I've ever seen!


So for today I basically let him do his thing. We played the game a couple times when his Happiness hearts got low, and I had to restock his food storage three times (it was either two or three, I don't remember to be honest). No bells on the Santa meter yet. At some point around noon, I noticed that he had a single point on his distance meter. I'm not sure if that's from playing the game so much or just the general passage of time though. Hopefully I can figure out that soon.


Speaking of the game, I've read that you can get items from playing the game, but I haven't had that happen on my particular Santagotch yet. It could be that there is an incredibly low chance of getting an item, but I'll keep playing it and just see what happens.


Santaclautch went to bed some time between 9 and 9:25 pm tonight. I wasn't paying attention but it's good to know that the first night he fell asleep so late just from me turning him on late.




Final Stats:


Distance: 1

Age: 101 years

Weight: 103 g

Hunger: 2/4

Day three!!


Santaclautch and I have had a slow but eventful day today, if that even makes sense. I was worried I wouldn't catch him if he decided to run away, so I left him at home and on pause while I was at work this morning. I was SO glad to find out that you can pause the Santagotch! I also discovered that you can change the time from standard to military time by holding A and C for a moment longer while getting to the "set" on the time screen. As far as I know, this is the only Tamagotchi that can do military time, which is neat. So far, he's only been awake for half an hour.




We finally found an item while playing the chimney game, and as it turns out we got the same item from today's Advent Calendar! It kinda looks like a fork with an absurdly large handle. No clue what it is actually supposed to be.






Success!! The first Santa item!! He made himself a little sled with a little fork. Who would have thought of that!?






And now he's Sledding Santa!!




Ain't he precious??? :D :D I guess I'm just going to save the other fork for later. I am wondering if he makes a useless item tomorrow, that his sled form will go away and he'll lose a bell. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens!




Finally, a bell on the Santa meter!! Still only one mark on distance traveled. Oh well.


Final bit of business for now was to check the TV.




He's on a stepstool throwing glitter now, and the tree has gotten a tiny bit bigger. Neat!


That's all for now, but I'll make more posts throughout the day as things happen, and I'll do a final stats list tonight before I go to bed.

WOAH! So Santa and I have had an exciting evening!


We played the chimney game a lot, and ended up getting a few items from it!!




Another ball of yarn...




Another wrapping paper...




And a fork again.


I decided to let him use the wrapping paper first and see what happened...






Success!! Yet ANOTHER Santa item!! :D




He has his little napsack and everything!! So cute!!


I figured I would try my luck again and let him have the ball of yarn next...

So in an entire day I've gotten Sled Santa, Suit Santa, and Hat Santa! (Those definitely aren't the official names, in case anyone was wondering. I may or may not have just made them up on the spot haha)




Now we're up to three bells filled on the Santa-ness meter!! Only one more to go!! (If you screw this up, Santaclautch, I swear I'll-)




So here's where the game gets interesting. What happens if he botches the next item I give him? Will a bell go down? Will nothing happen at all?


Also, according to the ?s in the inventory, there are three items that Santaclautch hasn't found yet. Three items, and only one bell. Hmm... I'm going to bet my money on two secret characters here. It's just a theory, though, but I'm hoping I'm right!! :)


Anyway, aside from all the item-getting, not much has happened today. Santa has eaten twice and surprisingly only run away once! Perhaps now that he looks more like Santa Claus he is settling into his new role! Speaking of eating, I noticed that he hasn't touched his cake pieces yet. Perhaps he eats the food first and if he hets hungry again and the food hasn't been restocked he moves to the cake? Just a theory. I would test it, but I don't want his weight to skyrocket. People are trying to figure out how the weight affects Santaclautch's growth, but from what I've read there isn't a definite consensus yet. I'm going to keep it low just to be on the safe side.


It's 9:12 pm and Santaclautch has gone to sleep! I'm going to assume his bedtime is 9 then. Everyone, have a great evening!!




Final Stats:


Distance: 1

Age: 102 years

Weight: 100 g

Hunger: 1/4

Happy: 4/4

Bells: 3 :D


Food: 4/4

      Entry #001 
      Hello and welcome to KeroPyontchi's new-and-improved Tamagotchi log! 
      This is Mochi. She is the third generation of three girls in a row on this v3 here. She is also the third Tamatchi I have gotten in a row! Nonetheless, I am determined to take good care of her because her grandmother was a Masktchi, and her mother a Warusotchi (pineapple looking gal), both considered "horrible" care adults. 13 year old me would be shaking right now! Maybe now that I know other Tamaparents are reading this it'll push me to take better care of mine. A log with only the worst care characters over and over would be way too repetitive and boring.

      (Please excuse any formatting issues as I get the hang of this again)  
      I'm currently on the hunt for the next Tamagotchi or virtual pet to add to my collection rebuild. There's a lot to consider here in terms of budget, what version to get, where to buy from, ect. I'm not in a hurry to rebuild my collection too quickly since I know I'm an impulsive person. I also have some sort of color Tamagotchi back at my parent's house, I'll have to look back on my old logs to see what version it is, and maybe I can run that one too!
      Not really much else to say today, I'll update tomorrow when Mochi evolves. 
      Until next time, thanks for reading  ₍˶ˆ꒳ˆ˶₎✼:♡*゚✿

      Hello! It's been quite some time since I last logged here or was even active at all but I've decided to resume logging with something I've been wanting to try again for a while.
      I'm not sure how many people remember my first log (it was back in 2016, after all), but quite a bit of it centered around a V3 I was raising as an oldie. I ended up keeping that V3 alive for well over a (human) year, and for quite a bit now have been wanting to try it again. I actually did do it last year with one of my V2s, an Ojitchi named Ricky who accidentally died at age 105. Well now, I'm ready to raise another oldie. I chose this tropical V2 to house it:

      I chose that tama because it is already pretty worn, and when I run oldies I take them everywhere with me. So I won't have to worry about this one getting scratched up or faded because it already is. I initially was going to reset it and start fresh, but I last left off with a Ginjirotchi on it and Ginjirotchi is one of my all time favourite characters. I couldn't possibly bear to reset one. So instead I married her off and her baby boy will be the future oldie:

      I'm thinking of naming him Ricky, which is also what my previous V2 oldie was named. Ricky the 1st lived to be 105, so maybe Ricky the 2nd can have even better luck! For now there's not much to be done with this tama, but I'll be back to update again once he is left on his own.

      not a big deal to most, but when i was a kid i just could never manage to keep my tamagotchis alive long enough to get them married, not to mention i only found out what 'bonding' was halfway through the first generations teenage hood; so on the first day of the second generation i spent hours getting the bonding to 100%!

      Hey gang, I'll make this short.
      Recently, I got myself an Entama (it's the shell design below, PLUS the beads which are easily the best part) after not knowing where my 4.5 was for ages because I wanted to play again, and uh.. the version one rereleases are pretty good but you basically have to let them die after a while, and I do not have the heart for that. Eh well.

      I do not speak or read a lick of Japanese, so this'll be fun.
      So, introducing.. AKIRA! Or, as it's put into the system, あきら.

      <-- he started life looking like this lil' fella (Kuchiotchi) and due to the way the Entama characters work, his appearance was pretty much set. I guess I have a soft spot for Kuchis now.

      In less than a day, he got these stubby lil legs, and looked like a takoyaki! He also started preschool and learned to dance. By this time I'd already started training him in the Kindness GUTS points so he'd get the right teacher as a teen.

      A couple of days ago, he grew into a Young Kuchipatchi (guess I took good care of him?) and earned the privilege of arms. He started school in Kindness, still grinding those GUTS points. I also got him a trampoline which he really likes. Thank all that is holy for the continued existence of the EnWarehouse program or I wouldn't have been able to get most if any of the right stuff. Man, I miss TamaTown every day of my little life. I don't do much anymore to note, but he did come with me for groceries.

      When I woke up this morning, my young lad evolved into a full grown Kuchipatchi! Ah, they (literally) grow up so fast. He still goes to school at the moment, but soon he'll have to get job hunting. Hoping for the Onsen job but I think he'll do just fine in anything he does. Then, it'll be time to find a partner. Oh man, they get so big so quick..
      Well, that's all for Mr. Akira for now. He says "hello" and to have a nice day.

      Hey everyone! It's been a while hasn't it? Seriously, I can't believe the last time I was on this site I was 17 years old whew time sure flies by! I recently went back to my Tamagotchi M!x after watching a Tiktok lol so I figured I would start a new tamagotchi log here.! So! Let me introduce you to my Tamagotchi~ I'm hoping to later bring back my other Tamagotchis but I need batteries rip 
      Name: Alice
      Type: Bellchi
      Stage: Baby
      Gender: Female
      Happiness: Cyan
      Apparently Alice wants to be a bit of a pain in the butt because as soon as she hatched she decided she would be depressed and wouldn't stop untill I gave her a bunch of sweets....and then after that proceeded to begin going to the bathroom every 5 seconds.  

      Then before I knew it though she grew up into Bellchi! Admittedly I didn't take the best care of her cuz most of the time she was a baby I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to connect it to the M!x website (I eventually figured it out but apparently Bellchi cannot identify flowers for the life of her). Luckily I actually quite like Bellchi cuz she is pretty cute! Nice to have a reminder of the old Tamagotchi log I did like 4 years ago now. Anyway, sorry this log was rather short, I started Alice up fairly late so unfortunately she has decided it's time to sleep no but I'll try keep this updated as much as I can!

      Hello everyone  My name is KuchipatchiPod or you can say Pod for short. I am new here but saw the log forum and decided to give it a try
      I've mentioned in other threads, but recently my father delivered to me my original 97 P1 Tamagotchi that I played with as a young tween. I decided to get some batteries for it, and while I was at it, grab a Japanese OG P1 so I could try to get Oyajitchi. I'd always been interested in collecting Tamagotchis, and my friend sent me a link to where you can buy the new Digimon ver20th vpets. I had to grab one. Then you know how online shopping goes... you get a little carried away sometimes. I had just received a Twitch payout and decided to blow it all on Tamas and Digis. I grabbed up six Digimon total (one of each variation, and then a sixth so I could ge thte "connect to 5 unique devices" mons... )
      After playing with my new Tamas and Digis for a bit, I decided I wanted some "fresh" Tamas, as my OG ones have seen better days. So I ordered a rerelease P1 and P2... Definitely going to stop for now because I'm quickly depleting the little bit I have in my bank account...
      At first it was just the two Tamas and a yellow Digivice. But then my purple one came in (for some reason the other 5 got shipped in two different packages despite buying them all together) early in the morning, so I decided to open it and play with it, even though it's the same "variation" as the yellow one. But I was eager to start another Digimon. Then the others came in later in the day. I was feeling obsessive and wanted to try out some of the other ones, too. Since the black and white ones have forms that can Jogress with each other, I decided to open BOTH of those. Bringing me to a whopping total of 6 active pets. 
      So let's meet the crew...

      I named each device (I'm not going to name each individual monster/creature). In the Digimon, you actually get to type in the names, so I was limited to 4 characters, but with the Tamagotchis you don't enter a name, so I just refer to them by the names I gave them.
      Tyson is the translucent blue Tamagotchi shell. He's my OG P1 from when I was a kid. I started him on the 19th after learning I could take him apart and clean him out (thanks to the members here!) Takao is the all-white Tamagotchi shell. He's the OG JP P1 that I ordered from eBay. I started him on the 20th when I got him in the mail. Kudos to you if you get the naming theme of the two Tamas. THAO is the translucent yellow Digivice. It's the first one I received when I thought I was only buying one of them. I started it on the 19th when I first got it in the mail after trying to get Tyson to hatch before learning I could clean him out, so THAO has been the longest-running pet so far. META is the translucent purple Digivice. It's the second one I received and started early in the morning of the 21st because I was eager to start another Digivice. POD is the black Digivice with white buttons. It was the third Digimon to get started, after I got my shipment of the rest of the Digivices that I had ordered on the 21st. TRAN is the white Digivice with black buttons. It is the most recently started one; I waited til the Baby stage of POD was finished before starting it so I wouldn't get too overwhelmed. I decided to take a photo of each evolution I get in the P1s, so I can have photographic evidence that I got each 'gotchi. My goal is to see all twelve forms!
      My memory is kind of bad so I think the timeline here is a bit off, but I'm trying to make it as accurate as possible as to the last three days.
      MAY 19th - THE BEGINNING
      The 19th was easy as I was only caring for the THAO for the first part of the day, enjoying my first little Koromon. Later in the evening, after learning I could clean out my Tama, I started raising the newly-revived Tyson. Babytchi is so needy! Koromon hardly needed any care, so I was focused completely on Babytchi. It was getting pretty late, so when Babytchi went to sleep, I thought it was done for the night. I sat it aside and got online to watch some Twitch. Then a bit later I heard him crying out! To my surprise, there were four poops and a sick Babytchi waiting for me. I nursed the poor little guy back to health, and that's how I re-learned that Babychi takes a nap shortly after hatching instead of going to sleep for the night.
      Finally, Tyson evolved into Marutchi! Then I was wondering why it was not falling asleep for the night, as it was after 10PM. I checked his clock and realized I had mixed up the AM/PM. Oops! I fixed it and Tyson fell right to sleep.
      The 20th was an exciting day because my Japanese Tama was set to arrive in the mail! I anxious awaited its arrival while keeping an eye on THAO and Tyson. It was pretty easy as Marutchi is not nearly as needy as Babytchi, and I was having fun checking on THAO every now and then because I was still feeling quite obsessive and not wanting to do much else.
      Takao finally came in the mail in the early afternoon. Sadly, I was not able to get his battery compartment open because the screws are stuck! But the existing batteries, despite being 25 years old, seemed to work when I pulled the tab out, so I gave him a reset and started to care for him. Another needy Babytchi... The screen would fade in and out sometimes shortly after pulling the tab, but since then it seems to be running fine. Eventually, Takao evolved to Marutchi as well and it was easier to keep track of them.
      I decided to try an experiment, since Tyson's buttons are particularly hard to press. I would raise Tyson's happiness only by feeding candy, and Takao's happiness only by playing games. Let's see how they evolve!
      THAO's Koromon evolved to Agumon and I was able to start another egg! I picked the horizontal stripey one because I knew it could evolve into Kunemon eventually, which is my favorite Digimon. I had to be careful to neglect Tokomon just the right amount to get three care mistakes. I didn't want to hurt the poor thing any more than that. Once I got the mistakes, I took good care of him well.
      MAY 21st - DIGIMON DAY
      Normally I wake up around 10-11AM, but on this day, Tokomon decided to cry at 730AM! I can't believe the Digimon wake up so early! Thankfully, the cry did not wake up my husband, who is a pretty deep sleeper. I waited 10 minutes to get my final care mistake I needed, and then started taking good care of Tokomon. Later in the day, he evolved into a beautiful Kunemon.
      Earlier in the afternoon, my package arrived with META, my purple Digivice. I was originally going to put this one away and just play with one of the Black or White ones when they came in, for a total of two Digimon. But while waiting for my package to come with the rest of my Digimon, I got so anxious to play that I ended up opening up the purple one anyway. I neglected Koromon just enough to get him to evolve into Betamon (so I could have two different mons).
      Later in the afternoon, my other package came in with the rest of my Digimon. I still wanted to have a type A or B digivice running, so I decided to open POD. Hubs was taking a nap, so I decided to stay in the guest bedroom and take care of my pets while playing phone games. This way the sound wouldn't bother him while he slept. Without much else to do, I was checking my pets constantly, and felt like there wasn't enough to do with the pets. So I decided to open TRAN. Maybe I was making a big mistake, running so many pets at once...
      I was having so much fun with my pets, but the buttons on Tyson and Takao were kind of hard to press, making me have to exert my thumb more than I would like. So I decided... why not get even more pets? So I ordered a P1 and P2 rerelease to be delivered on the 23rd...
      And that catches us up to today  Outside of getting the Child/Rookie stages of the Digimon I wanted (since I really wanted Betamon and Kunemon), I'm trying not to use any guides or help. I did look at a P1 growth chart to make a checklist of all the forms you can possibly get on the P1. I'll try to update if anything major happens from here on out.
