Which new Tamagotchi should I buy?

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!

 

I was quite obsessed with Tamagotchis when they became popular in my school (I was 6 or 7 years old). My first one was a v.4, and I later got a v.5 but found it VERY high-maintenance. Yesterday I found them lying in my drawer and felt really nostalgic, and decided I should buy a new one, with colors.

 

My question now is, which one should I buy? I thought the 4U was a good choice since it was relatively cheap on Amazon, but after reading some reviews it turns out it gets boring after a while if you don't have a device with NFC, and that the Touch Cards are expensive as well. The iD was supposedly not as fun either since there aren't many characters, but the iD L was an improvement. From reading a bit more, I found out the P's was superior, but it costs A LOT, is it worth it? Also, is the m!x any good?

There are many choices, but I'd like one with cute characters that is fun to play.

 

Should I buy the iD, iD L, 4U, P's or M!X?

I'd recommend the P's as they have a lot of built in content and there is an English patch available, and if you're not interested in buying some sort of irDa device a lot of sellers patch themselves,

Hi! I've owned both a P and now two Mixes. So far, I feel like the P had more content, but if the price is a huge concern, the Mix should do just fine. Also, the idea of being able to mix traits from both parents is pretty awesome. And there are plenty of online guides to help you understand the Japanese menus.

 

Having a color-screen Tamagotchi has been a wonderful experience and definitely a huge upgrade from the older versions. I played a 4.5 in elementary and I am now in college :- ) it's really a timeless toy!

Thanks! I've decided to buy a Tamagotchi P's! :D

      hello all! first-time tamagotchi owner here.
      i recently got a secondhand m!x and i’m on my 2nd gen now but it’s been a real struggle because of the lack of comprehensive guides online. i am able to understand a little bit of japanese but sometimes the dialogue goes by so fast i can’t catch anything.
      right now i’m trying to figure out what version of the m!x my console is. the exterior is is a darkish beige and the decal around the screen is purple with pastel coloured balls. i know it is not any special edition (20th anniversary, melody, spacey, sanrio, etc), so does it mean it is the original? the seller is uncontactable so i can’t ask her for information anymore. i would really appreciate any help! thank you!

      Yes, that’s how JD spelled it. 
      The Tamagotohi is a fake Color Tama that came out a year after the real one (so, 2009). It has a built in FM radio, IR communication like real Tamagotchis, and photos can be transferred via USB to use it as a digital photo frame. 
      The only known screenshot was posted here on TamaTalk a few years ago, but the link provided there leads to a blank page with no archives.
      https://www.tamatalk.com/IB/topic/189867-tamagotchi-colour-fake/

      A reserve image search revealed that it had originally been shared to another Tamagotchi forum back in 2009. Google Translated English version here.


      Fun facts- The Tamagotohi originally retailed for $6 USD adjusted for today. If you look closely on the box, it shows drawings of the different characters.
      User MadamBoss of Tamagochy shared a photo of the toy and box, confirming something: this was made by JiDan. Look at how the model number has “JD” before it. This is how every virtual pet by JiDan (under their original name) is stylized:
      Ex)
      Interestingly, the Touma Pet (a recent fake Color by M&D) has a similar model number, only this time it has “OK” before it. (Plus it uses stuff from A-Watch and QPet Quolor.) Where have we seen that before? Oh yeah! Are M&D, OK, and JD related? Who knows. If so, a Bootleg Tamagotchi conspiracy would prove that reality truly is stranger than fiction.
      The gist: Color Tama fakes are nothing new. And, the Handwarmer Pedometer Handwarmer Powerbank Tamagotchi is the tip of the iceberg for mutant bootlegs.
      At the moment, there are no known videos, other photos, or old listings. The lack of any info makes it more illusive than even the Tamagezi. This can be considered “lost,” as there is no actual documentation left online. With that being said, if anyone here has more things like pictures or one of these perplexing devices on hand, it would be much appreciated if you could help solve the mysteries surrounding this strange bootleg.

      Hey everyone! This is my first post, so bear with me if this has been mentioned before:
      I have two tamagotchi meets (magical). I LOVE them, but something funny is happening with my white one (I don't know if it makes a difference or not, but maybe it's worth mentioning...)! She just refuses to progress from teen to adult! My green one has grown into an adult, married, had a baby, and now that baby is an adult. A little insight: I sent both tamas on a cruise while I was at work. I came home to find my male teenager has been replaced or grown into Mametchi! "COOL!" I thought. He was only around for maybe 30 minutes before he was proposed to by a character in the game. He (I) agreed, and off he went to get married and they had a little baby hybrid of themselves. Now, Mametchi and his wifey are doing their thing, and my little girl baby has grown up! It's only been maybe 2 or 3 days since she hatched. She has been able to unlock locations and other fun activities. Meanwhile...my limited tama has been stuck as a teen girl for DAYS! This is the first hatchling I've had on this particular device, and she's not wanting to age up! I'm not playing either device any differently than the other (I often play with them simultaneously). Could this be a glitch? Am I missing something? As adorable as she is, I want her to progress! Anyone know what the deal is?

      Here’s another oddity, this time found on Mercari. Unfortunately, the listing there already sold, but nevertheless let’s take a looksy. Kids’ smart watches are all over online shops, but this one has a very unique feature packed in.
      (Unfortunately I can't link the listing so credit to Mercari seller "ocean")
      Behold the bootlegness in all its glory!!

      1)Take a look at the living room. It’s practically the same! Not only that, but the panda character is an edit of Kikitchi’s sprite. Admittedly, this doesn’t look half bad. It’s actually kind of cute!
      2)The lock screen is a stolen Bambi drawing! The watch face can be changed between a few different templates.
      3)It also features stolen icons from the official Tamas, well, except for the t-shirt thing. The upscale versions of them are also custom sprites.
      4)There are also some places to go, including a weird one in the bottom that might be a movie theater?
      5)Talking to a weird pink blob 6)Homescreen
      The watch also features a camera, photo gallery, and fitness stuff. There doesn’t appear to be buttons besides lock, volume, and reset, so this is most likely touch controlled. Later versions by A-Watch replace not-Kikitchi with a generic panda. BUT one listing on Amazon still offers this v-pet, and apparently pandas aren’t the only character! What to look for:
      -Blue or pink wristband that reads “A-Watch”
      -Flat surface around the screen with a black border around it and “OK” logo (later versions are a solid blue or pink)
      -Look for mentions of a pet game or cat icon on the main menu
      -No calling/texting/GPS tracking feature (common in other kids’ smart watches)

      Amazon listing:
      https://www.amazon.c...w_1541834232989

      This reminds me of the QPet, and it’s nice they actually made (somewhat) original sprites instead of totally aping Bandai’s work. If you already have one, please share your thoughts. Is this knockoff worthy of its $30 pricetag?

      In my free time I've come up with two different characters (both made extremy far apart from each other which is why the first looks a lot nicer then the second). One of the charicters is a m!x between Gozarutchi and Masktchi, the second is a m!x between Gozarutchi and Androtchi! I hope you like them!
