Rjalda100's Virtual Zoo: Volume 3.5

Recommended Posts

Welcome to another installment of my hopefully more consistent log. The tamas are all still doing very well. The two V2s are very laid back as adults so I've been primarily focusing on my V1, who's still a teen.

V1 - Ziggy

Ziggy wasn't set to evolve until around 4:30 this afternoon, so he spent the morning as a Marutchi. He connected quite a bit with Laura (my blue bubbles V2) and obtained the ball item, which he had a lot of fun playing with. So far, he has called for training at 1:15 and 4:15 today, with his next call presumably coming at 7:15. That brings his training bar up to 3 as he either didn't call yesterday or I missed it (more than likely it's the latter). 

ziggy3.jpeg  ziggy4.jpeg

Not too long ago, I heard the ever-familiar evolution beep. Since my other two tamas are adults, it could be none other than Ziggy. He's now an onion, which I expected but he's still cute.

ziggy5.jpeg  ziggy6.jpeg

I might try to aim for top tier with him even though I've rarely been successful with this on the V1. This version seems to be stricter with care mistakes than the later versions so it's a lot harder to get perfect care on it than even the V2 or V3. I will probably end up with Memetchi again but it's still worth a try.

V2 - Laura

Laura is still an impossibly cool Dorotchi. She is 5 years old and very laid back.

laura4.jpeg  laura5.jpeg  laura6.jpeg

                                                                     Experimenting with a new 'do...               Feeling like royalty...                     Ghosts can be cute too!

I love capturing her various item animations - they are all very cute. I'm glad I got Dorotchi on my 12th generation as opposed to one of my earlier ones because now I have most if not all of the available items to try out on her. I'll probably post more tomorrow or whenever I end up updating next.

V2 #2 - Agnes

Just like her sister, Agnes is 5 years old, still adorable and taking it easy. Oh, have I ever missed having Ginji - even the idle animations are great. I'll have to capture the teeth brushing one and the closeup at some point but I have not had a chance to do so yet.

agnes3.jpeg  agnes4.jpeg  agnes5.jpeg

                                                                   For me? Oh, you shouldn't have...    These boots are made for walkin'...             Skater... girl?

Her animations are slightly different from the original P1 Ginji, but they have their own little charm. I love having her around.

Hello, I'm back after being absent for a few days, not because I couldn't update but because there wasn't really anything interesting to update on. I have things to update on with my tamas now, however, including two epic fails. 

V1 - Ziggy

Epic Fail  #1. I actually did take decent care of Ziggy as a teen at first but then life got in the way and I just kind of... gave up? His training actually was full and he was never sick, but his weight got way too high and his hearts dropped a couple of times.


(I did capture this cute animation of his while he was still a teen. I like that the V1s do their idle animations for much longer than the V2s.)

I have to admit that I wasn't actually sure what to expect from his evolution, and therefore I can't say I'm happy or disappointed:


I like Tarakotchi, for the most part, but I get him a LOT. Read a couple posts back in this log and you'll see I've had several of them even quite recently. I have a female on one of my V3s I can mate him with so I'll likely be marrying him off as early as I can.

V2 - Laura

Epic Fail #2. I'd been declining the matchmaker so far on this tama because: a) I wanted to keep Laura around a bit longer than I usually do and b) I have a male Dorotchi on my blue lollipop V2 I really wanted to marry her to. Well, I made the mistake of keeping my V2 in my pocket while I was at work today, something I usually do but I'm usually not trying to avoid matchmaker visits so accidental button presses don't matter. Something must have gotten pressed in my pocket because I later checked on my V2 and Laura was there with a baby girl. Whoops.


Oh well. I did put a battery in my lollipop V2 and used the matchmaker to marry off the other Dorotchi that was still on that tama. The resulting baby was a boy, so I will be giving my tropical pink V2 a break and running my lollipop one starting in the next entry as I will be raising Laura's baby girl and this baby boy together, hopefully eventually marrying them this time with no pocket marriages (ha)!

laura7.jpeg  laura8.jpeg

I did manage to capture Dorotchi's closeup animation which is ADORABLE. I will really miss having her around.

V2 #2 - Agnes

Agnes is still the same. I haven't married her off and I'm not sure if I will right now as I'm going to be shelving this tama so I can run a different shell (one of the most pointless swaps ever but I like the candy one better). She is 8 years old, turning 9 tomorrow. In a way, I wish there wasn't the possibility of her turning into an oldie or I would keep her around so much longer.

agnes6.jpeg  agnes7.jpeg

I love Ginjirotchi's teeth brushing animation so much - the face gets me every time. So adorable! Her bathing animation reminds me of Ginji's P1 sprite, which is also adorable. I do wish this character was on more versions, but I guess with the V2 being the only connection version he is on, it makes me so much happier when I get him. I probably won't be updating on this specific V2 further in the log (at least for now, who's to say it won't make future appearances? It likely will), but I will say that it's been a great run (I didn't log about it, but two gens prior to this one, I also had a Pochitchi!!).

Hello! A few things to report on today. Like I said in my previous post, I've added a new tama to the log, which is my lollipop V2. Read ahead to see that and also the two new generations I started today!

V1 - Ziggy

Ziggy is still taking it easy as a laid back Tarakotchi. I initially planned on marrying him early via connection to one of my V3s, but I never got around to it and likely won't bother with it now as he will be getting the matchmaker tomorrow anyway.


I connected him to my V2 some more and after numerous poops and snakes, he finally got an item! The V1 does have items, but they can only be obtained via connection and they are also character specific. They are not passed down to the next generation so they have to be re-obtained every time. One of Tarakotchi's items is the boots and he looks hilarious using them - just look at his face!

V2 - Moira

As much as I loved having Laura the Dorotchi around, it was time for her to leave her baby last night and time for me to begin a new generation. Her daughter's name is Moira (halfway through the alphabet!) and she marks lucky generation 13.

moira1.jpeg  moira2.jpeg  moira3.jpeg

I brought my V2 to work with me this morning and began raising her there, so I don't have any photos of her in her baby stage, though by this point I'm sure you can imagine what that looked like so you're not missing much there. I have no idea which character her mother married because that marriage happened accidentally, in my pocket. It must have been one of the higher tier adults, because Moira evolved into a Kuribotchi! Haven't seen one of those in quite a while so I'm very pleased.

Her weight is high simply because I didn't have time to play games with her while I was at work today. I will be working on getting it down so I can hopefully achieve the best possible results with her.

V2 #2 - Edwin

I decided to give my pink flower V2 a break and run a different shell in its place. This particular V2 is blue with lollipops and it looks like this:


I really like this design. I got the tama this past summer and ran it quite a bit then, but I have not run it much since. I decided to give it another go so I popped a battery in it, married off my previous character (who, as you know, was a Dorotchi just like my bubble V2 was), and began a new generation who I named Edwin. The name theme going on with this one, for reasons unknown, is names beginning with E. I started doing it when I first got the tama and now it's become somewhat of a theme so I decided to keep it going. Edwin is the 7th generation.

edwin2.jpeg  edwin3.jpeg  edwin4.jpeg

His parent, a Dorotchi, married a Zuccitchi, so unsurprisingly he became a lower tier Marutchi. At least I got one good care toddler out of the two so I'm not super annoyed. As it always goes, he'll become one of the lower tier teens next, probably Hinotamatchi. I'm not aiming for any specific adult but will instead sit back and let it surprise me. 

Oh, and yes, he and Moira will be future mates. The only incentive I have for keeping two of the same version going at once is the connection aspect and the fact that I can marry them to one another, so that is exactly what I will be doing this time around.

Hello! I'm back again for a late evening update!

V1- Ziggy

As I said in yesterday's post, today was the day for Ziggy to be visited by the matchmaker and have a child so his family line can continue on. The matchmaker brought him a nice looking Androtchi/Robotchi and he couldn't say no.

ziggy11.jpeg  ziggy12.jpeg

He had a baby boy. This will mark the 3rd generation on what is currently the newest addition to my collection, and so far I've had all boys. I have not decided on a name for the baby boy yet, but unlike my other two running tamas, this one doesn't have a theme going on so it can be anything really. 

V2 - Moira

I brought both Moira and Edwin with me to work this morning so they could evolve on time. It was early in the morning, so it wasn't a huge deal. Moira got accidentally paused a few times yesterday for unknown amounts of time, so she evolved a little bit later than her counterpart, but again, not a huge deal. I was very pleased when she finally did evolve - I haven't seen a Ringotchi in AGES.


I've had wonderful results with V2 Ringotchis in the past. Two of my past Ringotchis went on to become Ginjirotchi, so that's a very high possibility. I've also gotten Pochitchi and Pyonchitchi from Ringotchi before - so many good possibilities! I can't wait to see what she becomes!

Also, I wanted to share a little tidbit about my bubble V2 shell in particular and why it currently stands as one of my favourite tamas in my collection, not to mention the quirkiest. There's been quite a bit of discussion in this thread (which I myself have been actively participating in) about different ROM versions of Connection tamas and in particular, how varied the V2s were. Most V2s function nearly identically, but when I got this particular V2 (incidentally, it was an extra from a lot that I never expected to love as much as I do), I noticed that it was a little bit different from the rest of the V2s I own. It's a North American model and mostly functions like one, but a lot of the item names are different from what I've seen on ever other V2 I've dealt with. What we currently believe is that my V2 was from a very early wave of V2s that used a slightly different ROM version from the more widespread release. They seem to be fairly rare (I so far know just one other person that has a V2 like mine and it's not the same shell), so what was originally a simple lot extra is now one of my most treasured tamas. I love vpets with little quirks, so this one is right up my alley.

Here's a small example of this: what is called a "plant" on most V2s is called a "pot plant" on mine (uhh, I can kind of see why that was changed...)!

moira5.jpeg  moira6.jpeg  moira7.jpeg

Moira enjoys it! She didn't get any money from it, but she didn't seem too fazed by that.

V2 #2 - Edwin

Well, I was partially right. Edwin did not become Hinotamatchi, but he did become a low tier teen.

edwin5.jpeg  edwin6.jpeg  edwin7.jpeg

Out of all the V2 teens, I think Nikatchi is the one I get the most. I just had one the generation before last. As common as Nikatchi is, I've also gotten some VERY good results from him in the past. My tropical pink V2, which I ran last generation, was a Nikatchi that evolved into Ginjirotchi. As long as I give him good care, I think I should be seeing some pretty good results. Just like my other V2, I cannot wait to see what he becomes.

Hello, I'm back again! Not a ton of interesting things to update on but I did start a new generation on my V1 so I thought I'd pop in.

V1 - Roger

Ziggy the Tarakotchi departed last night, leaving baby Roger in my care. This marks the third generation on my pink glitter V1 (will it beat my orange V1's record of 17? Probably not but I still like racking up the generations).

roger1.jpeg  roger2.jpeg  roger3.jpeg

He evolved into Marutchi. I've yet to see a Kinakomotchi on this one, probably because I keep getting low tier characters who then marry other low tier characters. After the first generation, the only possible teen evolution from Marutchi on odd generations is Hinotamatchi, so there won't be any surprises tomorrow when it comes time for him to change. Still, I'm going to try taking good care of him in hopes of breaking this bad care streak. I realize I say that every time and still end up screwing up, but hey it's always worth a try.

V2 - Moira

Moira is still doing very well. My bubble shell V2 is the one tama I bring everywhere with me, so she does accompany me to work every day. I haven't had any problems caring for her there, so her hearts haven't dropped below three. The only issue is that because I have to keep her muted while I work, I've been missing a lot of her training calls. She's set to evolve tomorrow morning and so far her training bar is only at 5/9. If I watch her really diligently today, I think I still have a chance to fill it but more than likely it will still fall short.

moira8.jpeg  moira9.jpeg

Of course, I'm still not entirely sure how much of a factor plays on the V2. On the V1, it's very important. On the V2, it definitely still matters, but I have previously gotten perfect care adults with training bars that weren't entirely full, so it seems to be a bit more lenient in that respect. 

V2 #2 - Edwin

Edwin also continues to do well. He's spent much of his teenhood asleep because I've been spending more time focusing on Moira - there's also the fact that I can't care for more than one tama while I'm at work and like I said, my bubble V2 is already the tama I always have running and bring everywhere with me. So Edwin usually gets put to sleep while I'm away. Because of this, his training bar is even lower than Moira's, only 2/9. I'm curious to see what he becomes, actually, because he technically hasn't received bad care at all. He's been asleep nearly the entire time so his hearts couldn't possibly have dropped, but the result of this is that there were no training calls, so his training is very low. The results should be interesting.

edwin8.jpeg  edwin9.jpeg  edwin10.jpeg  

For once, he actually had good results with the plant - 800GP!

Hello! Two new tamas are being added to the log today. Also, my P2 died a few days after my last post and I didn't restart, so that one won't be making an appearance in this post.


Oh, and I'm currently dumping photos of pretty much my whole collection on my Instagram (one at a time, because I love sharing the stories behind each individual tama), so if you'd like to see that by all means pop over there (link is in my sig). I've been having a lot of fun doing it.


V1 - Leona


Leona evolved into Masktchi. Bleh. This is the third one I've had in like two weeks. My past two V1 and V2 generations have also been exactly the same which is kind of annoying. At least I was able to marry her off today.




A baby boy for my 10th generation! That's nice since I've had mostly girls on this tama so far (I swear, the sparkles draw the girls in...). 10 generations on a V1 is kind of a feat since it really doesn't do much, but my plan is to keep this tama going for as long as I possibly can. My original goal was 10 generations, maybe now I'll see if I can eventually hit 20 (which I've done on a connection just once before, though it was on a V2 which has far more to do and many more characters).


V2 - Dolly


Again, luckily I'm not raising two Masktchis at the same time. Okay, I actually was for a day or so, but Celia did get married and left her baby yesterday morning. I named her little girl Dolly. She evolved into Marutchi (it's a curse, I tell ya) and then Propellertchi, a teen I like very much.


dolly1.jpeg dolly2.jpeg dolly3.jpeg


Normally I'd be like "I'm aiming for _______ with her", but for V2s that doesn't really work because of how random they are. There really isn't a way to aim for a specific character so I'm just going to take whatever this tama decides to give me. As long as she's not Memetchi, I'll be satisfied.


Keitai - ! (no, seriously)


I'd been itching to start up another Connection and eventually decided on this one, since I do love the simplicity of the Keitai. It's more simplistic than the V2 and almost feels like a slightly upgraded V1 to me - it's easy to care for but I still really like it. I own a few Keitais, but this is the shell I chose to run. It is one of my favourites:




That's actually not the keychain tab it came with - the original tab is white. I stole that light blue one from one of my V3s and I thought it matched well with the light blue shell. I switch around my tabs a lot for some reason. Anyway, I last left off (if the tama's date is any indicator, I last ran this tama in May) with a Mametchi named "!" - I normally do name my Japanese tamas, so I'm not really sure what I was thinking there. Also, his age says 11 but I don't think that's accurate because he isn't ready to marry yet.


keitai1.jpeg keitai2.jpeg keitai3.jpeg


Just like my V1, he is also the 10th generation. I didn't think I ran this particular Keitai for that long, but I guess I did. I must say that I really like the fact that the Keitai still has Mametchi's classic sprite, as opposed to the updated one that the V3 and later has. I think he looks so adorable like this.




You know how hard it is finding three different shades of blue to write in because almost every shell I'm running is the same colour? Anyway, I finally completed my iD after Mametchi got his final happy stamp:




I'm putting it on hiatus for now because that was a pretty good run. I still wanted to run a colour tama alongside my monochrome ones so I decided to start my P's in its place. I've been running it for a few days now and since running my IDLE a few months ago, I really have missed running an English colour tama. Normally I post a picture of my tama's shells in here before I start doing the closeup screen pics, but I forgot with this one. It's just the blue P's shell, so nothing super special there. I'm using the Love & Melody pierce with it and I am currently raising a Melodytchi:




Probably going to marry her off soon so I can start working on obtaining the built in characters - I'm on my 11th generation but I only have 7 tamatomos. I only have one P's, so there are two connection characters I can't obtain (the 3-way connecting ones), but there's still lots of things I can unlock that I have yet to do. The amount of features this tama has should keep me busy for quite a while, I hope.

Hello there! 

Love that wallpaper 😍 where did you got it? Can’t find it on Vpets. I love all halloween related items on the tama :D

Hello! I was absent yesterday because quite frankly I really wasn't in the mood for logging. All of my tamas did evolve, though, which is what I'll be sharing in today's post! Also, I received some tama mail today which actually arrived earlier than expected. It was a lot of connections (V2, V3 and a V6) that were desperately in need of a cleaning but for the price I couldn't pass them up. The V2 came debugged and I'll likely keep it that way as I have several V2s already. The V6 is in very rough physical condition but fully functional so I'll likely keep it as a backup for when I don't want my other V6, which I originally bought brand new, to get messed up. The V3 surprised me the most in that other than the fact that it is missing its battery cover, it is pristine. I did start up one of these tamas - keep reading to find out which one.

@Pumpkita I got the wallpaper from @rinyosayo on Instagram. It should be on her dropbox.

V1 - Roger

Well surprise, surprise, Roger evolved into Hinotamatchi.


Any chance I had of getting out of this bad care rut was ruined yesterday when I forgot to change his time before I went to work. Usually I put all of my tamas (except my blue V2) to sleep while I'm away, but yesterday I somehow forgot about my V1. I came back to it later in the day and Roger was still alive, but he was sick with all hearts empty. He'll probably evolve into Masktchi but surprisingly, I'm not super bothered about that.

V2 - Moira

This evolution was a bit more surprising. It also marks my first repeat character since I began this V2 run in October.

moira10.jpeg  moira11.jpeg

Not really sure where I messed up, but I don't mind Nyorotchi so I'm not mad. The very first adult character I had on this shell was Nyorotchi (scroll back to page 1 of this log - it was named "A"), and I went quite a long streak without ever getting a repeat character. Of course, I knew that streak would eventually have to end, and it finally has, but it was great while it lasted. Nyorotchi actually does have some very cute animations, some of which I'll probably share in my next post.

(Oh, and I actually did manage to fill her training bar before she evolved, so that didn't really play much of a factor in the end result)

V2 #2 - Edwin

I have no idea how Edwin and Moira turned into characters from the same care tier when they really didn't receive equal treatment. I'm also not super amused about having yet another Tarakotchi (I JUST had one on my V1!)

edwin11.jpeg  edwin12.jpeg

I've always liked Tarakotchi, but he's starting to turn into Memetchi 2.0 for me in that I get him way too often. I'm not sure when yet, but he and Moira will likely be marrying very soon - Nyorotchi was a pretty welcome change, but the endless string of Tarakotchi is killing me.

V3 - Tia

Yes, the tama from the lot I decided to start up was the V3. I haven't given one a good run in quite a while so I'd like to keep this one going for a few generations in an attempt to obtain some of the characters I have not really seen much yet.The shell design looks like this. It was never a design I'd paid much attention to, but now that I have it in person it's actually quite nice, not to mention it fits in with my pink and blue preference.

Anyway, I started it up and since there was no existing download data on the tama, I hatched a new egg. I ended up with a girl, who I named Tia.

tia1.jpeg  tia2.jpeg

Tia had a rather typical baby stage. I don't care for the get the notes game on the V3, so that's why her weight was so high then. The V3 version of Bump seems slightly easier than the V2 version, so I usually end up playing that instead.


At the present moment, Tia is now a Tamatchi. I'm now working on getting her weight down and caring for her the best I can. I want her to turn into one of the top tier teens since I have not seen any of those in QUITE a while.

I'll be returning hopefully tomorrow with an actual picture-filled post, but I'll just pop in with a short update as quite a lot has happened.

Roger, my V1, evolved yesterday into Masktchi which I expected. 

Moira and Edwin, my V2s, got married the other day and left their babies last night. They had boys who I named Niall and Enzo. Both are currently Marutchis. 

Tia, my V3, evolved into Young Mametchi - I was hoping for Obotchi but YM is very cute as well. She's set to evolve tomorrow and currently has 7/9 training.

You can probably imagine what they all look like but yeah, I'll be back later with a better update. Life gets busy sometimes but I really enjoy logging so I'd like to keep up with this for once and not fall behind like I have so many times in the past.

Didn't have time to update yesterday but I'm back now! 3 out of my 4 tamas have evolved since I quickly posted the other day - two of the evolutions were expected and one was a pleasant surprise.

V1 - Roger

Like I said earlier, Roger turned into Masktchi which wasn't a surprise at all.

roger5.jpeg  roger6.jpeg

He's now 6 years old (and very overweight, whoops), which means he'll be getting the matchmaker tomorrow. I haven't raised a Masktchi in a while so I don't mind having him around but I'm also eager to start a new gen. V1s are not exactly full of surprises, but I haven't had a single good care character on here yet so I'd definitely like to try to attempt that.

V2 - Niall

I started raising Moira and Edwin's sons the other day. The first son was named Niall (I name this tama alphabetically, and I also usually only use five letter names, so I couldn't think of anything else), and he marks the 14th generation on my bubble V2. My goal with this tama is to run it for as many generations as I can without any fatalities (my record is 37! Not sure if I can beat that but it's worth a try).

niall1.jpeg  niall2.jpeg  niall3.jpeg

He's currently a Hinotamatchi, which was pretty much expected to come from Marutchi. I've been getting an awful lot of these guys lately so I was hoping for something different but I also won't complain. I'm not aiming for anything specific with him; instead, I'm just caring for him like I normally do in the hopes that maybe I'll get an interesting or different result.

V2 #2 - Enzo

Niall's brother was born and named at the same time he was. He was named Enzo and he marks the 8th generation on my candy V2. I will probably run this tama until the 10th generation before I stop it.

enzo1.jpeg  enzo2.jpeg  enzo3.jpeg

So far, he and his brother have had exact twin growths. They were both Marutchi and now they are both Hinotamatchi. I'm hoping they don't also end up with twin adult growths since I like variety, but they just might end up doing so.

V3 - Tia

Now this is where the surprise happened. With Tia, I wasn't necessarily aiming for anything in particular because I still really need to brush up on the V3 growth patterns. I ran a V3 very briefly a few months ago, but other than that I really haven't given one a detailed run in probably over a year. I have not yet looked at a growth chart but I have a decent idea of the characters so I might not really need it. Anyway, I took decent care of Tia as a teen, but her hungry hearts dropped to two a couple of times. I wasn't expecting a perfect care adult, which I was right about, but I also wasn't expecting what I ended up getting.

tia4.jpeg  tia5.jpeg

Billotchi! One of my favourite V3 adults and one I certainly haven't had in quite a while. I think this is only my second or third time getting this character; it is definitely not one that appears often for me. I'm very happy with her now - she's just the cutest. I'm now trying to earn more points so I can buy all the items to see her various animations.

Whoops, I disappeared again, but after a week with no updates I'm finally back. I've started new generations on two of my tamas since my last post and started up two new ones.

V1 - Rosie

My pink V1 is still on the go. I'm now on my fourth generation with a girl named Rosie. She evolved yesterday into Gozarutchi.


Evidently, I'm not very good at caring for V1s as I can't seem to get any characters above rank 3. At least I don't get Gozarutchi as often as some of the other characters so I'm not as bothered as I could be.

V2 - Olive

Niall evolved into a Hiratchi, got married and had a baby girl who I named Olive. She marks the 15th generation on my blue V2 and she is currently a Hitodetchi.

olive1.jpeg  olive2.jpeg  olive3.jpeg

She's a lower tier toddler which means she'll also become a lower rank teen. I haven't had very many good care teens on this one but one day I'll break that streak. Not sure who to aim for with her since I'm too lazy to consult a growth chart for what the odd generation adults are. As I've always done, I will likely just sit back and let this tama surprise me.

V2 - Flora

Well what do you know, I switched V2 shells again. This one seemed like a no brainer as it's the matching white counterpart to my blue bubble V2. It's not in the best shape and the screen background has a little tear in it - I have a spare but I have not gotten around to switching it out yet. Even still, I love it as it is even if it isn't perfect. Out of all of the shell designs I own, it's probably in my top 10.

flora1.jpeg  flora2.jpeg  flora3.jpeg

This lovely lady is Flora and she's the 37th generation! I'm not sure how past me ever managed that but my goal is definitely to get my blue V2 to catch up some day. She evolved into UFOtchi last night which is a great sign - a good care teen! My other V2 may be doomed for bad care, but this one has a chance. I'm definitely excited to see what she becomes. 

V3 - Rudy

I got one of my holy grails in the mail yesterday, this Hong Kong V3:


It's a rather unique looking shell but I love it all the same. It had a bit of a rough start because even though it came brand new, the screen had dead pixels as soon as I untabbed it, so I had to end up doing a screen swap. The pixels on the donor screen were a bit faded at first, but after using the tama for a while that problem seems to have fixed itself.

After the screen issues were sorted, I started up the tama for real and hatched a baby boy who I named Rudy. He's obviously the first generation and he is now a Tamatchi. I'm guessing he will become either Obotchi or Young Mametchi as those are the teens I usually seem to get first gen. For now, he's just taking it easy.

Hello! I don't have as many photos to spam you with today but as I've had a few evolutions I thought I'd pop in and update. 

V1 - Rosie

Rosie the Gozarutchi has not had a very eventful life, but she was able to marry yesterday! She married a Hanatchi so I already know her baby will be doomed to the bad care route, but I'm not too bothered.


This will now be four boys and one girl on this V1. Not sure why I've been getting so many boys but I guess it's random. I have not thought of a name for Rosie's son yet but she will be leaving him tonight, so his independent life will start tomorrow morning. 

V2 - Olive

Olive's teen evolution turned out to be, of course, very predictable. She's now a Nikatchi.

Still bad care, but at least she's cute. She hasn't been receiving the best care in the world, so I'm suspecting her final evolution will be average care or less. She's 3 years old currently and set to evolve tomorrow morning. I may not be optimistic, but I'm still interested to see what she becomes. 

V2 #2 - Flora

Flora evolved last night, and her evolution was both surprising and predictable. She didn't receive very good care as a teen, so I definitely suspected a bottom tier adult - I did get one, but not necessarily the one I was expecting.

Kiwitchi! For once my bad caretaking paid off and resulted in a cute character. I've always found it funny how Kiwitchi has feet but no arms. Either way, she's very cute and has some great animations. 

V3 - Rudy

Well, I turned out to be wrong in my last post. Rudy surprised me pleasantly by evolving into Patapatatchi (is that this character's name? It's definitely something weird like that...):

rudy4.jpeg  rudy5.jpeg

I love characters that hover/fly, so I'm very happy with this evolution over the more typical Obotchi evolution (I love Obotchi, but change is nice). So far, I think I've given him pretty good care - focusing on him is the reason my V2s have gotten a bit neglected, whoops! He has full training and his hearts haven't really dropped. He's set to evolve later this evening when I'm at work so I will likely bring him with me. I'm interested to see what he will become.

*blows off the dust*

Well, it's sure been a while since I posted in here. I've still been running tamas but I've been too busy to actually log them. Not sure how consistent this will end up being but I thought I'd try keeping up with this log again. All of my current tamas are adults, so I'll spend the remainder of this post introducing them to you.

V1 - Mila

Yes, this is the same pink glitter V1 from my last post back in February. I gave it a pretty lengthy break but started it up again recently. This is Mila and she is my 8th generation.


Though Tarakotchi isn't my favourite, this tama had a very long streak of continuous Masktchi/Gozarutchi so I'm very happy to see something different for once. I really like her closeup animation where she comes up and kisses the screen. 

V2 - Yulia

As somewhat of a long-term commitment/goal of mine, my blue/pink bubble V2 is still running on its 25th generation. You may remember that when I originally started it back in October, I wanted to try running it for an entire alphabet, and, well, I'm now on the second last letter. This is Yulia and she just evolved into Hanatchi (she and Mila were born at exactly the same time and are running on the same schedule).


Hanatchi is a personal favourite of mine, so I was very happy when she evolved. Though I've had Hanatchi on many of my other tamas, I've actually not had her on this particular V2 yet: it's nice that after 25 generations I'm still getting very few repeat characters.

V3 - Ella

I've been running this V3 for just over a week now. It is still on its first generation with a Billotchi named Ella.


She got married yesterday and had a baby boy. If you cannot tell from the amount of girls in this post, I've been on a random girl streak lately so I'm happy that streak has finally been broken.

Entama - ♥

Started this Entama almost two weeks ago with the aim of getting one of the secret characters. I currently have a Memetchi named "♥" (I usually don't name my Japanese tamas and prefer to use symbols), who got a job about two days ago and reached 999 style points yesterday.


The Entama is fun but very slow growing. She's not actually 15, that's a result of time changing - I'd say she's probably closer to 12-13. She should be evolving either today or tomorrow.

      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:

      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!

      Hey guys!
      I've been thinking of getting a tama for a long time now, and one time I just felt like getting a knockoff. Just to see how vpets are like.
      But, speculations..
      I mean, why not just get a real one? They're much better than the knockoffs anyway!
      Can you guys please help me?

      I should've started this log earlier, but whatever... But at least I have a name for it now! 
      Seeing as I'm still figuring this log out, the format might switch between a normal log and a roleplay sort of log (the tama and me talking to eachother).
      Anyways, I'm on my 23rd gen of tamas now. But meet our current tama, Jazz! 

      Nothing much happened, mostly because Jazz is a little baby and you can't really do much with them.
      Jazz: Hey!
      That's not really an insult. Plus, your only a baby for, like, an hour. 
      Jazz: I guess.. But.. That doesn't mean I have to like it!
      I guess not. 
      Jazz ate a lot, and would occasionally play with his bear. Which makes me wonder, where does the toy bear go once your tama becomes a child? You can't see it in the items, but what happens to it?
      Jazz: What?
      For a while, Jazz watched YouTube with me and hopped around his room until he was tired and took a lil nap.
