The Bard's Tama Log

Recommended Posts

Thirteen years ago, a much younger version of myself finally stopped lurking TamaTalk and made an account. I don't remember much (if anything) of what I did on here, but I probably tried to start a log or two! But, my patience would inevitably run out, and along with that would go anything resembling posting consistency. Eventually, I stopped frequenting the forum, and my six Connections ended up tucked away in a drawer.


Last Saturday, I was going through some of my stuff after moving back home from college. I found all my old Tamagotchi, thinking on a whim that if we had the batteries, I'd start them up again. I was never very good at getting the best characters, but hey, I'm older now! Maybe I can treat my Tamas a bit better. I found a CR2032 in our family's battery basket, pulled out a screwdriver, and excitedly placed the battery in my old V1...


... only for the egg to pop up for a few seconds, after which the battery X screen showed. Well, alright. That would be a fix for another day. I'm sure the V2 was fine, right? It had an old battery in it, so maybe not, but I didn't see any signs of corrosion. Popped in the fresh battery and... it looks like my past self had, uh, debugged my V2? I was wanting a non-tampered Tama experience, so that would also be left for another day. Next on the list was the V3-- and there we go, a perfectly normal & functioning Tama! Hatched a black (boy) Teletchi, so I creatively named him Kuro. He evolved into a Tamatchi the day or so after.


After that, I popped back on Tamatalk, eager to see what all I'd "missed," per se. There's a lot that's new! Everything from the Music Star onward is completely alien to me. I'm excited to get batteries back in my collection, and also to expand what I've got! I actually have the opportunity to snag an Angelgotchi, or some of the other vintage ones. On that note, I've got an Angelgotchi and one of the Gudetamas in my cart on JapanYouWant... I do editing work for my buddy who went on to grad school, so once she's sent me her paper and paid me, I'll order those.


I was actually going to wait until I had the Angel to start this log, but it's going to be at least a few more days before I can place that order. In the mean time, I'll be talking about my V3! Let's try posting a picture.




Here he is! He evolved into a Young Mametchi, which my younger self aspired to but was never particularly effective in getting. Despite job-hunting, wedding planning, and apartment-hunting with my fiancé, I've got chunks of free time, so that means better-cared-for Tamas. I'm also eternally thankful that he goes to bed at 8, so that this Friday's D&D session won't be marked by my constant checking of this lil guy while my bard is in danger :D


It lists age as 3, though it's Wednesday and he's been active since Saturday, but I feel like I remember this being a quirk before.




I always love the little idle animations they have. Bouncing around the screen is cute enough, but brushing teeth & taking a bath before bed is very nice. It makes them feel a little more "real," I guess?


I don't remember when V3s evolve into the Adult form, but probably in the next few days. I'll try to update every couple of days, more or less depending on when interesting stuff happens, tho I expect once I get more started up/add more to my collection it'll get livelier around here! I'm curious about the modern ones, but they seem sort of intimidating... the m!x looks cool, but I'll need to figure out which version, and then there's the cost... they're a little pricier than I'm used to. We'll see! ^_^




EDIT: I realized I didn't initially select a prefix for the topic, but when I go back and edit it to try to fix that, it doesn't seem to "take"? Not sure what's going on with that or if there's something I need to do to attach the COMMENTS OK prefix to the topic.

Alright, here's an update!

Yesterday morning (age 4), Kuro evolved from a Young Mametchi to a... I think it's called Leaftchi? Or Violetchi?


Pretty cute! As far as I know, I've managed to avoid any care mistakes, and the discipline meter was filled early on in teenager form.


Playing with the ball! The different items you can grab add some nice variety.

We also tried the lamp...


... but to no avail.

Adult Kuro goes to bed an hour later than as a teen, so I'll be keeping an eye on him while fighting chitines in our tabletop session tonight. Wish me luck on both those fronts :lol:

The V3 has always been cool, though I miss getting on Tamatown-- that's got to be down by now.

The V3 has enough content that it was fun to rediscover some of the fun little features, like the different games and stuff that pops up in the shops, but not so much as to be overwhelming to return to as the first Tama I restarted.

Browsing ebay and seeing this same V3 shell design being sold for $40+ when we got it for, like, $15 (if my memory serves) back when it originally came out... it's kind of a weird feeling. But I'm glad people still love Tamagotchi!

I've edited the title so it's COMMENTS OK :)

Alright, great, let's get this new week started off with a good chunky update.


The rest of Friday went by uneventfully, Tama-wise, tho my bard ended up in the Underdark after an unsuccessful fight, we'll see what happens from there! On Saturday, I hung out with my fiancé, so I didn't get the chance to check on Kuro for a bit. We saw the Black Panther movie and really enjoyed it!


I did catch Kuro playing in the snow, so that was a cool screen to see.




I also made enough points to buy the wings when they showed up in the shop!




I think they look especially cute on a Violetchi!


Then, today, at 3:00, the Matchmaker showed up. Kuro was matched with a Chomametchi, which is one I haven't seen very often!




And here's Kuro & his daughter!




I'm excited to see how the second generation turns out, especially since different characters show up for even-numbered gens vs. odd-numbered. And hey, it's been a week since I got back into Tamagotchi!

Earlier this afternoon, my fiancé mentioned that he was at Walmart, so I asked if he could check to see if they had any of the 20th anniversary Tamagotchi Minis. I figured it was a long shot and was super surprised when he sent me this picture!!




Nice! They had one blue flocked shell left, so he got me that one ^_^ I'm really excited! We don't live very close to each other, so it'll probably be next Saturday when I'll get it.


I'm going to go ahead and get one of the Angelgotchi from JYW, as well, before the last one gets picked up by someone else. I've got graduation money left, so I can dip into that a bit, no problem.


So there we go! About to head into second generation with my V3, Angelgotchi has been ordered, and a 20th anniver. flocked shell Tama secured!

Hope everyone's having a good Tuesday! We've started into the 2nd gen-- last night, Kuro... er, floated up into the sky, entrusting his daughter to my care.





There he goes...

I had a dentist appointment this morning, so I filled the lil Teletchi up with snacks real quick before I went. Ella-- that's what I named her-- soon after evolved into a Mohitamatchi!




I'm not sure how weight factors in, but my feeling is that it's better to play games vs. feed snacks, right? Especially since they can get sick from too many snacks? I played a few games to get her weight down, so we'll see what the teenager looks like. I might have missed a few discipline calls while I was busy, but so far we've got the bar filled with three marks.




Oh yeah, and we got some sweet loot from the plant. Well, 100 points, but still a fun surprise.




Mohitamatchi looks a little funny when happy, don't you think? She looks "stretchy" or something. Maybe the tama is supposed to be similar to a mochi ball? :lol: And then, when it evolves, it stretches into its teenager form and solidifies?? Hm...

I love the casual strangeness of Tamagotchi. There's no real explanation, but I feel like it's better that it doesn't.


Anyways, hope y'all have a good day, and see you next time-- probably with more V3 stuff only, since the Angelgotchi will be in the mail for a while!

Aaaah, this blog just feels really charming! I love the quick updates, and the wonderfulness that is your return to tamagotchis - as I weirdly put it, seeing all this stuff again multiple years later must be so nostalgic to you. :) This blog usually updates after I finish school, at least where I live, so I just love relaxing and reading this. :)


Can't wait to see what happens with Ella! What adult character are you aiming to get? :D

Glad you're enjoying this, Tamacass! This log has been nice to have-- as well as a Tamagotchi to take care of-- as I'm kind of in a weird, stressful in-between place in my life right now. As far as Ella goes, I'd be thrilled to get Mimitchi or any of the other iconic characters! We'll see tho!


I woke up yesterday to see that Ella had evolved into a Young Mimitchi! I love this design a lot, probably more than Young Mametchi, who I got last time. I think it's because Young Mimitchi (and Mimitchi itself) is evocative of that older, rounder Pikachu design we saw in the first few Pokemon games. There's just something friendly-looking about it.




Also the nubby arms are very precious ^_^

Ella was patient with me yesterday morning, as I had a few medical appointments to get to, and then was running errands for most of the day. I wasn't so busy as to prevent me from checking on her and filling up the meters, but I did have a few close calls. I made sure to play some games with her once we got home! I've also somehow managed to nearly fill up the Discipline meter-- maybe that's just because V3s call a lot, I'm not sure. Regardless, it's been going well despite my bouts of absence.






We tried the lamp today! Ella got very lucky and got 2000 GP from the genie, as well as 1000-some from a chest! We've got a tidy sum saved up in case more high-ticket items show up at the shop :D I've managed to get what I feel like are most of them so far!


I'm also excited because we're playing more D&D tomorrow evening! My fiancé has been DMing a two-group campaign for almost two years now, one group (the one I'm in) is good-aligned, and the other group is evil-aligned, so even though we have Official Group Names we mostly just call them the good squad and the evil squad :lol: The good squad has been split up, hence my bard being by himself in the last session, but the evil squad has stayed together. At some point, the groups will meet! Right now, though, there's an evil squad session happening tomorrow, and I get to take the role of a bard NPC, since bards are my favorite D&D class, haha. By my estimates, Ella won't have evolved by then, so she'll be in bed as it starts.


And, let's see, I'll either have a new update Saturday morning or late Saturday evening after I get back! Either way, my flocked shell Tamagotchi will be in my hands and in these updates soon!




Hope you guys have a good end of the week!

I love D&D! (though right now I've been doing Starfinder). I love DM'ing a ton, but I'm kinda burned out after doing it for years and would love to play as a PLAYER for once. XD


Young Mimitchi is a great sprite. I love the variations of the teens on the V3, and the odd/even character shift helps things keep feeling really fresh even after a few generations. :D


(I totally would have liked your post, but I capped out my likes for the day I guess XD)

Hoky: Hooray, a fellow D&D fan! I didn't know what Starfinder was, but I google'd it and that looks pretty rad. I got into D&D a few years ago and haven't tried any of Paizo's stuff yet, tho I know a few who've played Pathfinder before! DMing is great-- but I totally get the burnout thing. I'm fortunate that I get to be a player most of the since there are multiple DMs in our group, and then can hop in and run a one-off session every so often. I can't believe I didn't notice the odd/even V3 generation thing as a kid, but I guess some things just went right over my head. It's definitely a good mechanic to introduce some variety!


This update's going to be pretty short! The most notable thing that happened is that Ella evolved a few hours ago...




... into a character I've never gotten before, so I had to check the character chart to see who it is! It's Decotchi! This is a really cool/different character to get, it kind of falls into the "head with legs" thing that the oldies/Bill have going for them, but with a Frankenstein's monster twist. Definitely not what I was expecting, but a cool surprise!

Let's try an accessory!




I love all the items you can try on, it really leans into the excitement of getting your tama to an adult form, so that now you can see what they look like with all these animations.




I forgot what the stuffed animal item did, so I guess Ella's going to look like this for the rest of the day!


See you all later!

Hey all! Small update last time, so here's a bigger one!


I got the 20th anniversary mini from my fiancé on Saturday, and I started it up yesterday. I knew it was small, but oh my gosh guys, it is SO TINY. I love it, it's so cute, and the fuzzy flocked shell is a great variation on the usual plastic. It kind of picks up lint easy, and I've already peeled more than a few cat hairs off it, so I wouldn't recommend putting it in your pocket if you don't want stuff to get on it. Otherwise though it's a nice little sensory thing ^_^ I want like, 20 of these little guys. But I'll probably go the saner route and keep my eye out for the other flocked shells.





I'm not kidding, this stuff is ridiculously cute to me. The simpler functions also fit well with the smaller form, especially the teeny lil buttons! My hands are small, but playing a game like the V3s have on it would be a little less comfortable for sure.




It also evolved into Kuchipatchi today! A good, classic duck boy :lol: That's apparently the "average" care character, which makes sense since I was a little less attentive yesterday. It does seem like the Minis need food/candy a little more frequently than the V3 does, but maybe that's because I can't check it directly. We'll see how long this one hangs around, and I'll try for a different character next time!


Ella is doing well so far, we'll be looking out for the Matchmaker tonight and tomorrow. For now though, we're just hanging out.




The wig is... hmmm. Interesting? I tried using the makeup item but she just looked confused, so maybe it doesn't work on this kind of character. We also tried the pencil.





And a closeup!


So that's what's up with these two! I've been looking at the tracking info on my Angelgotchi, and it looks like I'll get it in the mail either today or tomorrow, fingers crossed? Not sure if I should have three of these running at once, but knowing myself, I'll probably start it up anyways as soon as I get it :P I don't remember if JYW includes batteries or not? We'll see. I'm definitely opening it up to check on it when it gets here, though, since it's an old Tama. Wish me luck!

Definitely wishing you luck! Man, I wasn't hopeful about the 20th anniversary Minis, considering I knew they were more or less electronic accessories to cash in on nostalgia (and the fact Bandai likes to forget that Tamagotchi Connections exist), but they look really simplistic and cute.... Aaaaah, I'm so conflicted!! :P Decotchi is actually a really cute character though, even with her strange appearance, haha. All these good characters were barely featured past the V3, which makes me sad. :( I've always wanted a V3 for this reason, and a few more. Though I do have a V2 I got from a friend recently which I haven't tested...


Sorry for the wall of text, hope your Tamas are doing well at this moment! :D

Tamacass-- Thanks! I definitely recommend the V3 because the cast of characters seem plentiful and varied, which makes it a lot of fun to keep playing. I don't remember what the V2 was like compared to the V3, but it's worth a shot if you've got one on hand ^_^ And yes, the Minis are pretty simple. I'm not sure that it would be as fun to run as a single tama, but having it alongside others is nice, and the flocked shell is a neat little novelty. If you're looking for a more complex/full tama experience, I'd save the $15 or so and put it towards getting a different tama. But, if you like the shell designs and think you would enjoy having a tiny tama, even if it doesn't have any games and has a limited amount of characters, then a Mini is fun! I'm incredibly weak to teeny versions of things, though, so I'm biased. :D


Amongst wedding planning, job hunting, and all that jazz, Tamagotchi have been nice little islands of calm for me since I started them up. I've got a dentist appointment for a filling later today, so that's not fun, but! Yesterday! Good things happened!




Tama mail! :lol: My angelgotchi from JYW arrived!




The tamagotchi that I have wanted since I first heard of them, way back... it's here! A new addition to the family! Speaking of new additions, Ella received a suitor yesterday...





... and had a daughter! The next generation (the 3rd) should begin tomorrow! Here's a pic of my running tamas, before I opened up the Angel:




Kuchipatchi is still Kuchipatchi, of course. He hasn't gotten sick at all, so I hope to keep him around for as long as I can.

Onto the Angelgotchi!

I found the tiniest screwdriver ever in the toolbox to pop it open, thankful that batteries were included. There was a little bit of dust-looking stuff on the battery and contacts not covered by the plastic tab, so that was easily removed. I wanted to check on its internal parts, but those four screws were pretty tight, one of which just wouldn't budge and I think I might have stripped :P so I gave up on that.




Not entirely sure what the little scratch (?) on the disc-looking bit above the batteries is, but I tried not to mess with much. I put the batteries back in and was terrified when only a part of the screen showed, but fortunately that was remedied by tightening the screws a bit and making sure everything was put in place! Success!




Compared to the Connection's loud, strident beeps, and even the Mini's more medium sounds, the Angel's sounds are pretty soft. Enough to get your attention, for sure, but it's more like talking while the V3 is more like yelling :blink: The Angel is real cute! The buttons are a little harder to press, it seems like they're more inside the shell than the Connections, so you have to be more deliberate with pressing. It also caught me off guard that the game doesn't stop automatically, like there's not an "end goal" like with the Connection games, you just... keep jumping stars into eternity.


It would be nice if you could unlock more games, since it gets a little monotonous. Otherwise though, it's a fun Tama for sure, and the unique concept behind it is really great. The idea of a deceased Tama turning into an Angel is, again, just enough explanation to be interesting.


Oh, and the tapping on the screen to scare away the bat is a fun extra feature, too!




It's a lil Maruten right now. I've only caught it smiling (when you need to praise it) once, so maybe I need to pay a little more attention? We'll see!


Hope y'all's week is going well, and see you next time!

Not entirely sure what the little scratch (?) on the disc-looking bit above the batteries is, <--The disc is the speaker, and my Morino has a little mark like that, too. I thought it was corrosion, but I really don't know enough to be sure.

Glad you like the angel! A lot of your thoughts mirror my own. It is pretty quiet, the game does get a little taxing, and the screen tapping feature is super neat! If you dig that, you should TOTALLY go for a Morino, as it hits a lot of the same notes (and has a better game).

Also, pretty sure the button presses feel 'stickier' or whatever because of the older processor, so there's just a little noticeable lag. It's funny, because it's just as noticeable between the connections and something newer like a M!x, which makes the vintage tamas seem so slooooowwww. XD


Also also, does your Angel poop every time you praise it? Or is that just mine??

Hoky-- Hmm, maybe that mark is just a common occurrence on the speakers? Weird. Anyways, what I've seen of the Morino is really cool, it looks like another fun spin on the normal Tama kind of stuff! And yep, every time, I'm not entirely sure why but every stage of the angel seems to poop after praise. Really not sure what's up with that? :D Also, it looks like our Angels have different-looking icons, which is interesting.




The Angel evolved into a Kodoten! Glad to be on the good-care path, though I'm also looking forward to experimenting to get different characters. He has a little wand he waves when he wants to be praised!






And they sleep on clouds!! I thought that was a nice touch.


And yesterday evening, he evolved into Kuriten! I'm happy to get this cute little guy. As I've probably mentioned before, the Angelgotchi was the vintage tama that younger-me wanted the most, so it's fun to experience this. ^_^






Also got to catch Kuriten go on a walk, though my picture of the animation he did afterwards is a little blurry. It almost looks like he had the halo off? I'm not sure.


Onto the V3! Ella left behind her daughter, who I have named Fruit because how many five-letter words are there out there, anyways? Fruit evolved into a Kuchitamatchi! I've somehow avoided getting a repeat toddler form so far!




I love how with the toddlers, it's a total toss-up whether you get legs or not.


And then this afternoon, she evolved into a Obotchi!




Life as a Tamagotchi must be odd. Suddenly you go from a floating duck-face to arms, legs, and hair, and no duck-face. They must be very adaptable creatures :D I think I've done pretty well with this gen so far, though I accidentally paused it somehow between last night and this morning, and might have gotten a care miss yesterday. We'll see!


The little Kuchipatchi mini is same as always! I'm always picking cat hair off of it, but otherwise no change.


Hope y'all have a good weekend!

For the different Icons- I know they eventually changed the icons when they did the international release, but I checked Tamashell and some of the JP ones appear to have the updated icons, so that must be what you have!


From the tamagotchi wiki: "While early releases of the Japanese models featured the original Tamagotchi icons, the later releases had newly designed icons exclusive to the Angel. The toilet icon, represented by a butt with wings, was later changed to a roll of toilet paper for the international release"

Ah yeah, that explains it! They do look more similar to the Connection icons. Cool!



The weather has been pretty gross recently, cold and rainy mostly. We had a few nice days earlier in the month, but I guess we're in the midst of the wet early spring weather. NC can have some unpredictable weather, though, so I'm holding out for a few sunny days to boost the mood :)


Let's see... the Mini is hanging in there, still pretty easy going. My cat knocked it off my bedside table one night and whisked it under the bed, so I had to perform a quick rescue mission to make sure the little guy didn't end up in the kitty's mouth-- that wouldn't have been fun for any party involved :mellow: I keep my tamas in my purse when they're asleep now, since that's never far away from me.



Fruit is still a teen, so nothing too much to report there! We pulled the lion doll out of my inventory so she could play with it. Otherwise, I've been about the same care-wise, playing games instead of feeding snacks and all that. I'm curious to see what adult form I get-- can we keep up the no-repeats record? :lol:


2ryh940.jpg x4nc5k.jpg


I got a picture of Kuriten calling for praise, which is a much more uhh sparkly animation than the previous forms! I guess the pooping-afterwards is just one of those weird Tamagotchi things, lol.




Also, I had some trouble calling him back from this afternoon's walk. I hit the call button a few times, only to see the door open, so I tried tapping the screen to see if that did anything, and that seemed to work? I wonder if that's a random chance thing, or if the tapping actually worked...


14wekxf.jpg 2lln1iu.jpg


And when I was setting all three tamas next to each other, I noticed that Kuriten had evolved into the Twin Angels/Futagotenshi! They are surprisingly chill with sharing meals, though I guess they are angels, so...

I'll have to get a picture of them when the bat shows up, though, because that's even more unique looking with the two faces in the corner.


2ynrp1l.jpg d3zh4.jpg




I'm much less familiar with the rhythm of the Mini and the Angel, so I don't have a good beat on how long they'll stick around. Three tamas feels like my limit, though, even though I've been eyeing a few tamas on JYW... but no, I've already got three, and no luck on the job front anyways, so I'll probably hold off a bit longer :P Or maybe I'll just scrounge up a battery to put in one of my other Connections? Decisions, decisions.


That's all for this update! Stay dry, everyone!

We got some weird March snow yesterday. It was pretty, but with all the snow we got earlier this year, I'm kind of glad it didn't stick. The sun is out in full force right now!


Some fun updates on the tama front, so here we go!


My Mini evolved yesterday from Kuchipatchi into Oyajitchi! I guess I have kept him up for a while, after all. It seems to need attention more frequently as it gets older, unless my imagination is playing tricks on me.




The flocked shell is cool, but keeping it free from lint is a losing battle. Maybe if I attached it to my purse, then it would avoid some of that? I'm not sure. For now, even though lint sticks to it, it seems to be maintaining its color, which is nice.


Fruit has also evolved! Went to sleep with the lion doll nearby, then woke up and evolved into the adorable Memetchi!



15s1lp0.jpg 5d5w3.jpg


I tried to play a variety of different games, so maybe that influenced the evolution? Memetchi is supposed to be a "above average care" adult, which makes sense. We've kept up the no-repeats record so far for gen 3, guys!


The angel is still the twins, and man, are they strange! I got pictures of their different interactions. The "happy" and "upset" animations are a special kind of horrifying, if you ask me...


33em0xw.jpg ve1wzl.jpg


Add the Huge Emoting Face onto the fact that either one of their faces tend to either shrink or disappear entirely in the animations and well, that's on the pixel train to strangeville.




Asking for praise here.




Okay, the hiding-from-the-bat thing is cute. They are definitely a unique character! You'd expect the Angelgotchi to have mostly angel-ified versions of the usual Tamagotchi characters, so seeing that they're mostly their own characters is a nice aspect.


Let's see, what's next... Fruit recently evolved, so it'll be a bit before she marries and has a kid. The Mini seems to be approaching the end of its life cycle, as does the Angel, but I'd guess that they'll stick around for the next few days as well. We'll see what I've got next update!

      Hello, and welcome to my Morino log!
      Now, I REALLY like bugs, ESPECIALLY Stag Beetles, or really anything with a horn/pincer. I also just like most bugs in general.
      After finding a Tamagotchi thats ALL about bugs, I knew I had to get it. The only thing that comes this close to my love of bugs is Fish.
      In this log, I plan to:
      Run the Polka Dot egg to get a feel for how this Tamagotchi plays.
      Run the White egg several times after the Polka Dot egg, and see who I get.
      Discuss how I got specific outcomes to the best of my ability.
      Talk about new features the Morino has, and differences it has from other vintage Tamas the best I can.
      With introductions out of the way, I hope you all enjoy this log of the Japan exclusive, Morino Tamagotch!

      Welp, I'm back. It's been many years since I joined Tamatalk (under a different name) and several since I last visited. Aside from a brief stint with a Tamagotchi Gudetama, I haven't been a tama mama in quite some time, but I recently received a Magic Tamagotchi On as a gift and I've been having a lot of fun with it. I especially love the large variety of tamas and the excitement of waiting to see what they look like as they grow. Evolution happens so quickly with the Tamagotchi On,  I thought keeping a log would be a great way to remember all of my babies.
      I got my Tama-On June 25th and I'm now on generation 3. I have just a few photos from the first two generations so as soon as I remember how to post photos properly, I'll do a single post for each generation and go from there. Yay!

      Hi everyone!
      In this thread, I am gonna compile information, pictures, etc I found on the Web about the Tamagotchi ON.
      Feel free to comment and share if you like!
      Okay, so as you all know, the moment you put both of the triple-A batteries in, the device beeps and says "PLEASE WAIT".
      Then, you enter the time, date, your name and your birthday.
      When you're done with all that, the Tamagotchi says "PLEASE WAIT" again, and after a minute, you will have your egg!
      And after a while... your Tama will hatch!
      It will jump for joy at first, then it will cry and call for you to feed it.
      So, the three buttons are labelled A, B and C.
      Press A to go to the main menu, and to scroll to the second icon, " Food & Snack ", and press button B to select.
      The meal that you'll get for babies is labelled "BABY FOOD".
      Select B a couple times until your Tama notifies you that it is full by crying.
      To raise your Tama's happiness, press A to show the snack for babies, which is labelled "BABY COOKIES".
      Do the same thing, just mash button B a couple times, skipping the animation.
      First row: 
      1- Profile Setting ( see your tama's happiness, hunger, your profile, etc.)
      2- Meal & Snack ( Feed your tama)
      3- Bathroom ( Go to the toilet before your tama does its business, and give it a bath)
      4- Connection ( Connect with other devices to have playdates and give gifts, or connect to the App)
      5- Family ( Your family tree from past generations, and you can visit your parents)
      6- Explore My Town ( Go to the Shop or the Park )
      7- Travel To Other Town ( Explore places that you have unlocked )
      8- Item Box ( all the items that you've collected)
      9- Notebook ( Pictures you take of your tama, and friends that you make on the device )
      10- First Aid Kit ( Gives your tama meds whenever it gets sick)
      See you in the next post, 'cause I'm too tired to type any more.

      I had originally felt burned by the Tamagotchi Meets when I first imported it, and I put it aside in irritation without going beyond the first generation. Recently, after enjoying so many Tamagotchi Meets/On logs around here, I felt that it was worth giving it another chance, so I grabbed some good batteries and started over, and soon grew to enjoy the device for what it is. The colour Tamagotchis represent a separate evolutionary line - their structure and gameplay are clearly descended from the Tamagotchi Game Boy game from 1997 - and I find that it helps to keep this in mind. That said, I still prefer the simpler Tamagotchis like the vintage devices and their re-releases, and the more recent Mini and Nano-based releases, as they're less time-consuming.
      So here I am, starting a new log. I have previously found standard logging to be too time-consuming, so my focus here will be pictures of the parents and of their fully-grown offspring. For now, I'll be running my pink Fairy Version Meets, but I'm keeping an eye out to see if any more versions are localised, as I would like to support the English-language On releases, too. I have no interest in using the mobile app, so that won't be featured here, and I'll be skipping the baby, toddler, and teen stages, as I'm most interested in the final results of each pairing. I may also include pictures of new additions to my collection every now and then, such as the upcoming Pac-Man 40th Anniversary Tamagotchi, but I most likely won't be logging those.
      So, without further ado, here's why this log is titled as it is: My first generation Tamagotchi was a male Gozarutchi. I changed his colour to pale yellow by feeding him five lemon pies at the restaurant, and shortly after that I had him marry Lovelitchi. They made a very cute couple!
      I'm actually not the biggest fan of Lovelitchi (I find her to be a bit on the generic-cutesy side), but it was obvious that the two's offspring would grow up to look adorable, and sure enough, they did;

      Here's a picture showing Gozarutchi and Lovelitchi, along with their twin daughters, Lemonitchi and Pietchi - so named because of how recent Gozarutchi's dessert-induced colour-change had been at the time. They both turned out exactly how I expected them to, which was fun. They also both inherited their father's pale yellow colour, even though, at birth, Lemonitchi was yellow and Pietchi was white. The only difference between them as adults is that Lemonitchi's bag is white, and Pietchi's is yellow.
      I'm planning to have Lemonitchi marry Kikitchi sometime tomorrow, so my next update will be once the next generation is fully grown. See you then!

      Rest in Peace my latest devil, Kuridebitchi. Had a lot of fun with that little guy, almost a full month lol.
      I'm going to put away the devil for a bit and play more with the Tamagotchi On since I'm having a lot of fun with it.
      At first, I was trying to recreate a DevilMametchi on my On, but wasn't very successful so I decided to move away from that and be more open-minded. The On is a lot more fun if you just go with the flow and see what happens, there is always a pleasant surprise to be had
      Here's my second generation family tree with the DevilMametchi attempts

      This is my current generation, seven

      I had just married my previous girl to Kuromametchi and then I got this little guy...who was considerate enough to leave all you viewers a nice little surprise on the floor 

      He seemed pretty upset by it, but then he moved on with his day

      don't worry, I cleaned it up and fed him after the second picture haha
      One thing I like most about the On is that you really don't know what you're gonna get. The red hair of this guy popped up out of nowhere, the last time there was red in the family tree was generation two. It went dormant, then came back again to my surprise, which I really like. 
      His name is Mitatchi, he should be growing into adult sometime tomorrow and I'm eager to see what happens

      (or: 'We All Live in a Pink Version 3', to kick things off.)
      Welcome! Now, this may be the millionth log I've started over the course of (almost) seven years on this website, but I'm determined to keep this one running for as long as I can. A post every day would be nice, so I'll try and promise you that. Let's get started with a little backstory first:
      You see, I've been holding out for a V3 ever since I started collecting back in 2013. I grew up with a V4 and V5 years beforehand - I no longer had them before I started collecting as my precious V6 served as my reintroduction in '13 -, but there was always something about the V3 that attracted me to it. It felt nostalgic, even though I never grew up with it? Anyway, they're a bit scarce compared to your usual V1s and V2s, so it took me a few years until I was able to find a good deal (or cared enough to get one, I dropped Tamagotchis for a good year or so). I'd found a listing for $60 a few weeks prior from now, but someone else got to it first  However, that seemingly worked out in my favor, because just last week, a listing for a V3 for $35 showed up out of absolutely nowhere! And there were quite a few watchers that were in the position I was just a few weeks prior.
      And so, riding an adrenaline-powered high, I made a cathartic decision -- and ruined many, many people's dreams that night.

      Pictured: A package labelled 'HANDLE WITH CARE', and a certain pink Tamagotchi wrapped in bubble-wrap.
      With a candy-themed V3 in tow, and a working battery(!) provided by the lovely store who sold me said tama, I quickly got to unwrapping it and getting it started...

      Pictured: A surprise guest...?!
      ...And imagine my surprise when the DOWNLOAD option was available, with a Tamagotchi that was still alive! An adorable little Masktchi named Lachy - belonging to his previous user, Blaze - was there to welcome me to the lovely little V3 he lived in. He was only on the first gen, and seemed to be neglected judging by who he evolved into, but he seemed quite chipper (his stats were full from where the 'gotchi was last left off) despite his circumstances. I even messed with the clock to see if I could get him married, but I guess he was too young.  So, grabbing a pen, I bid our lovely guest the best of luck, and started a new egg...

      Pictured: The hatching of a new friend to raise!
      ...And it's a boy! Because I've recently been enlightened to a famous band I've ignored all of these years (and may or may not have named this blog after a song of theirs :3), I named him John. I wonder if he can play guitar?

      Pictured: Playing Get♪ for the first time!
      I didn't get many other pictures, but I did snap a picture of history in the making. Get♪ is harder than I thought, but it's also much more enjoyable than most of the built-in games on the V4 (my childhood is down for the count). Bump still sucks though. Seriously I-- I just want to play a game and not get my tama's stats involved, please Bandai stop making your games interesting for once.  Joking of course, I'm just terrible at bump. 
      In an hour or so, John evolved into Tamatchi, which is to be expected for the first gen according to the growth chart I'm referencing here. I'd love to get either Violetchi or Pyonkotchi, but knowing my luck, I'll get Mametchi despite just raising one beforehand (depicted on my previous log). I adore the idea of having multiple characters in the same growth level, it keeps it interesting! I'd love to raise my V2 someday, every time I put a battery in I end up taking it out. It's the coolest-looking shell in my collection as well (transparent blue)! Why am I like this. XD
      I forgot to take a picture of John after he evolved, and right now he's currently asleep, so hopefully we will be able to witness best bowl-cut boi in action next post before he evolves into a teen. I wonder which one I'll get... So exciting!  I'm so glad I got a V3 after all this time, the wait was definitely worth it.
      I'll sign off here for now. To finish, here's a song recommendation from The Beatles considering this post is full of them. I'll Be Back is criminally underrated.
