Which Connection version to buy

Recommended Posts

I recently bought a few of the color Tamas, and wanted to try some of the slightly older ones. As i mentioned in the title, I'm aiming for the Connection series. The only reason i ask is because all of the posts and forums I have read on the topic refer to the usage of Tamatown, which obviously doesn't help any.

 

So my question is; Without Tamatown, which of the Tamagotchi Connections would be the best to buy? I hear that 6 is high maintenance, so I probably won't get that one for now. Really I'm torn between both the 4(and 4.5) and the 5(and 5.5) versions. But i figured i would ask for some opinions first, since I read that 2 and 3 were fairly fun.

 

The Tamas i have now are the P's, IDLe, 4U, 4U+, Friends and Friends Dream Town.

 

 

 

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Any help/opinions are appreciated. :3

Maybe a V3? Try a V5.5 if you don't feel like a V6...

My personal favourites are the V3, V4, and the V5.

V1 to V4.5 Connections are similar in that you hatch a character, care for it, can let it mate, and the cycle begins again. The V5 lets you raise three at a time, and the focus is often on mating your characters with the right mate to get a 'pure family' - it certainly is a different concept. The V6 is also different because the focus is on becoming a music star, hence the name. Unless this concept appeals to you, and since you've said you aren't after high-maintenance Tamagotchis, I would not recommend the V6.

 

The V1 is a bit bland, and your game choice is limited to two. The V2 is amazing, and was released before the Tamatown option, so you won't miss out on any of its features. V3 onward has Tamatown, which you won't be able to access, but they are fun versions nonetheless. I would recommend the V4/4.5 over the V3 because you have the school and work options, which bring in more points and an extra mini-game or two. You can hit up youtube for reviews of the features and games on all of these versions, and check growth charts to see which version has games and characters you would most prefer.

 

I'd personally recommend the V4.5, for its fun games. My other recommendation would be to perhaps consider getting two connections, if you're interested and if that is an option for you - the V1 - V4.5 can all connect with each other, and while V1,V2 and V3 are more laid back than the V4, being able to connect to another device makes up for it. Let us know how it goes :ichigotchi:

I would say a v2 or v3. However, of the ones you mentiond, get a v4.5. They're pretty easy to care for with the connection-era vibe still there.

Definitely V4. It doesn't need that much care, and the characters are so cute! The games are super fun, and there's lots of secret characters to unlock! I love seeing them grow up, going to school and getting a job and stuff! If you have a universal (Bad) care character, it'll be harder to get a job. But it's still so fun! I have the most memories with it.

So to update, i bought a V2, since there was one available for 10 dollars, and I'm super cheap. Next I plan on buying a V4(or 4.5 depending on price) then a V5(or 5.5...same reason)

 

Thanks everyone for their opinions on helping me decide :D I never owned any of the Connections when they came out, so when i started collecting i wasn't sure where to start :3

      I am making a guess that this is the right place to put this but honestly I don’t know if it is. 
      Anyway I want to pre order a tamagotchi P!x because tamagotchis usually sell out really quickly in my area. I also live in a rural area so stores don’t get deliveries more than like once a month and if I don’t pre order it there’s a good chance I have to wait years to get it. 
      the only problem I’ve encountered is the camera on the P!x. I need to know how much you have to use it to care for your friend or if there might be a way to get out of having to use it.  I’m blind so the camera might provide a huge problem for me depending on how much I have to use it. The touch keys shouldn’t be a problem so long as the tama still makes some sort of sound. 
      I know no one is going to know for sure but the more I can start getting an idea of if I’ll even be able to use it the better. That way I don’t have to waste my time with it if I can’t. (I’ll still feel a little bit left out because the newer ones are getting less and less accessible to me and honestly I have a feeling that soon I’ll have to just stop getting the new ones all together)
      thabks !

      A while ago, I bought 2 used Tamagotchi Connections at a pawn shop. They worked just fine, but the battery cover screw was corroded in both of them:


      I searched the internet for ways to remove the corrosion. Some people would even use ketchup, but the most effective way was letting the screws sit in vinegar, then using a toothbrush to remove the rest of the corrosion, and finally cleaning them with alcohol. However, due to me being busy with school, a year passed and I still hadn't tried cleaning the screws, until a few days ago when I had some spare time and decided to try it out. I thought, why not demonstrate the whole process on TamaTalk to help people out? 
       
      First, I removed the screws from the battery covers. Tamagotchi Connection battery covers have some sort of retainer that keeps the screw from falling out. To remove the screw, I had to hold the retainer using my fingernail, then pull on the screw while twisting it counterclockwise. Now, both the screw and the retainer came out. The retainer was also a bit corroded, as well as the screw hole in the battery cover. I cleaned those with alcohol.
      Now, the fun part. I let the screws sit in apple cider vinegar for around 30 minutes.

      Then, I scrubbed them with a toothbrush several times. Both the screws came out looking way better, but one of them still had some ugly black marks where the corrosion was. As a last resort, I sandpapered it. I have no idea what the exact grit of the sandpaper was, but eyeing it, it seemed to be around ~200 grit. This improved the appearance of the screw drastically. Here are the results!


      Comparing it to a non-corroded screw of another tama, the finish looks less shiny. But it's a lot better than a corroded screw! 
      I hope this tutorial was easy to understand! If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

      Heya,new to tamagotchi.
      Found a morino tamagotch in a thrift store
      But it wasn't working so i replaced the very old batteries with semi old ones.
      It kinda worked until the batteries ran out
      Though i noticed that theres something wrong
      Like,it turns off and on with a light slap
      So it means egg after egg after egg
      Then i bought some new ones but while screwing it on to close the screen fades to nothing
      But when the lid isnt fully closed,it works just fine.though that'd make it hard to put in a bag or my pocket
      Also works without the lid except everytime the batteries move it turns off then on again.
