A little P's of life

Recommended Posts

i'm sorry, i couldn't resist that pun.


anyway i finally managed to get my hands on a reasonably priced p's, and i thought i'd start a log to celebrate!


it wasn't in the best condition - the shell is ink stained, the screen is a little scratched, and it looks like it used to be covered in stickers. luckily the staining and sticker gunk i couldn't get off can be covered by the case i'm waiting patiently for! not that i'm complaining, for the price i managed to get this P's at, you'd think it would be in much worse condition!


i didn't originally plan on making a log so i didn't end up taking many photos today. by the time i the thought popped into my head my new little tama was already asleep...

here's a look at the new baby girl:


what a cutie! i always seem to start off with girls...

i'm raising her to be Yumemitchi of course - she's my favourite tamagotchi, and i also wanted to have a good comparison to my 4U!


i'll be running my 4U alongside my P's until my second gen, just to see exactly what the differences are, and to see what one i like better! so far, i'm a little more fond of my 4U, but it's a little hard to judge when i haven't even run the P's for a whole day yet!

i mentioned the main difference i've noticed so in my status, so i'll elaborate on it a little more here.

i didn't notice it until i turned my 4U on, but the P's feels very... slow? unresponsive? it's like comparing a 10-year-old computer to a brand new one! a bit extreme, but you get the idea. when going through the icons, the P's will get "stuck" and i'll have to press a again, while the 4U will just keep going, no matter how fast i press the button! this also happens in menus, and can be annoying when feeding. i'm not sure if it's an issue with this particular P's, or if it's just a general thing, i might but batteries in my +colour and see if it does something simillar.


here's a full view of the P's and my sleeping toddler!

... and that's all the images i have. i definitely wasn't prepared for a log.


i plan on running this log until i get all the tamatomo! i might have to start over at some point if i can acquire the means to english patch the P's, but i guess i'll cross that bridge when i get to it.

thanks for reading! hope you tune in tomorrow!

I notice a bit of lag when deleting journal entries but the responsiveness seems to be ok with mine. Maybe clean the buttons to see if it improves the responsiveness?

Hey! I have a question - where did you get your P's from? You've mentioned that you got it at a really good price :)

interesting! i did notice today that it wasn't doing the lag thing with the icons anymore, though going through menus is still feels really slow. i booted my +colour up today to compare and the colour was slower than the 4U, but still noticeably faster than the P's.

...actually i just tried to go through the icons and it started stopping again. it didn't do it all day, but now that my tama is asleep it starts doing it again! i'm wondering if maybe it's a power-saving thing?


Hey! I have a question - where did you get your P's from? You've mentioned that you got it at a really good price :)

i managed to get lucky with a bid on ebay for this one, but i generally find the P's prices on ebay to be a little expensive, with the average price generally being $100-$120 AUD not including shipping... and then the shipping tends to be an extra $20... the condition of the tamas can vary a lot too.

when i was shopping around for a P's though, i found that yahoo auctions japan had the best prices. there's even a very good condition white P's on there right now with it's box for only $60! and that's pretty much the average there, even if they are auctions, i don't find a lot of people bidding on them. i recommend using dejapan as a shopping service if you want to buy from yahoo - they don't charge a fee!




and here's what you've been waiting for: the next log!


i woke up late and started the day with a care miss. whoops.

she's still a happy lil chappy though! this cute little puchihanatchi met a lot of pets at the park today!


here's one of them! i don't think this is one of the one's you can adopt though. kind of disappointing because its very cute!

today she also managed to get a hold of two of these double-money things for the game center!


she made a lot of money through the skipping game today that's for sure. not too much though, had to hold back in fear of the sporty personality coming out!

i also tried out the paint feature, which is very cute!


this was my favourite colour on her!

it wasn't long until she evolved into neotchi! kinda funny how the paint matched what she evolved into...


she's so precious! i'm not entirely sure how exactly the personality thing all works, so i had her go to sleep tonight with the smart personality. and tomorrow i'll go with charisma? hopefully that gets me a yumemitchi lol

i did mention my +colour though, so here's a hi from meidotchi!


my +colour wouldn't turn on at first. it turns out that one of the springy things is rusted, and it looks like a battery had leaked in it! no idea how it happened considering it's been sitting inside a box with no batteries for the past few years, but at least it still works! looking at this poor tama makes me feel a little bad though, it has 3 huge scratches across the screen, and it somehow has dust under the faceplate! how did it even get there?

i miss meidotchi being raisable, she's definitely one of my top tamas.

nothing much else happened today though, pretty horrid weather for all the tamas today. especially poor meidotchi, she couldn't even leave the house! should've set the time to summer before removing the batteries...


anyways, thats all for today. hope you tune in tommorrow! :)

Yess! Really enjoying this log!


thank you! glad to see people enjoying it!




today's log is certainly not what i expected it to be!


i thought on the P's that the teen stage lasted for two days. i was wrong.

i was very surprised when i looked over at my tama to see neotchi evolving! i would've liked to spend more time with her but...


now i have yumemitchi! the personality thing does work how i thought it would! i'm trying to do this without a guide, it's been fun so far!

not too long after she evolved, i took yumemitchi on several outings to the park to adopt a yumecantchi! she had to have her matching pet!


look at that grumpy face... how cute. you can also see that it started snowing!

after a few games, and generally just messing around, i sent yumemitchi off to school!


i love how she travels in a limo. i also love how yumecantchi came to school with her.

she's in what i can only assume to be the smart class. i didn't expect the school in the P's to be a whole day thing, i thought it would be more like the 4U. in retrospect, it's kind of obvious considering it replaces the babysitter... i wonder where yumecantchi went during class?

here's yumemitchi's diary entry for the day:


"i built a robot at school today! nadetchi is trying his best too~"

i really like that you can actually see that classmate she talks about in class... it's the little details.

after school ended she headed out for dinner, and by pure chance i managed to find one of her tamatomo items!


i thought she would like it, and i was right! i fed her the dream pudding i think? it was something like that. i appreciate the extra length to her happy bar lol.

i then took her to the park for one last outing, and she met spacytchi! she's met him there earlier today, but this time... he asked her to go to the beach!


did yumemitchi just go on a date? only a few hours as an adult and she's already looking for a partner...

i had absolutely 0 idea this could happen! i didn't read what spacytchi said and just assumed he wanted to kick a ball around the park or something. it was a cute surprise!


that's it for today though. yumemitchi needs her beauty sleep! tomorrow is monday, so hopefully the cover arrives?


thanks for reading!

another day, another log.


today was mostly just a bit of faffing about and trying to figure out how some things work.

first thing i did today was send yumemitchi outside for some fresh air


i should have tried to get her to plant a tree, but i didn't even remember you could do that in the P's until later today...

i then sent her to the park to see if she could get a job, but this guy just showed up:


he's saying something along the lines of "it's still too early for you to have a part-time job", but i'm not sure if he means early as in the time of day, or if yumemitchi just isn't the right age yet. i'll find out sooner or later i guess.

i then sent yumemitchi straight off to school, where she had what i'm going to assume is charisma class with kiraritchi!


when i tried to take her out of school, she seemed to go to sports class, where she promptly failed to jump over something with a name i can't remember. then i managed to press the right option and she came home!

all her meters were empty, so i immediately sent her to the restaurant, where she came across Waltztchi!


she got a free meal that filled up her hunger, which was nice.

i checked her diary when she came home:


"today i had a singing test! i was nervous, but the teacher's praise made me feel better~"

she doesn't actually say that she felt better, it's just kind of implied.

i then sent her off to fill her happy bar and make some sweet, sweet cash, but i didn't know until she came home from the game center that it was waltztchi's birthday!

here's the cute little birthday card:


of course i then spent all of yumemitchi's hard earned money on clothes.

as well as trying to look for things that might be a tamatomo item, but today i wasn't successful


how adorable! she didn't wear it for long though, i prefer her normal clothes.

i sent her outside again, and she found another coupon!


but of course it was for the bathroom...

her last outing for the day was of course to the park, where she met kuchipatchi!


...and went on a date. poor spacytchi, he thought he had it good.

i guess yumemitchi likes to keep her options open?


anyway that's it for today! thanks for reading!! :)

Hello everyone! Been quite a while since I updated this log! Now that I have another 2 P's, it's time to start things back up again! I haven't actually run my P's in quite awhile, I've been on and off running my Plus Color and some Connections I've found at thrift stores over the past 2 years. There's still some stuff that's missing from this log though, so let's get started!

First off, we have Tamatomos! I got Yumemitchi's:


And Kiraritchi's:




And lastly, Acchitchi's:


Also some select diary entries from Kiraritchi and Acchitchi:


"Today I worked at Tamamori Shop ★ Lots of customers came in ♪"


"I worked at the TamaDepa today! I sold a lot of things, but I'm a little tired..."

Poor Kuchipatchi didn't get to make any, apparently.

That's about all I have for now, I'm not going to actually start running them all until the cases for them arrive. But until then, here's a pic of all 3 P's together!


I did a quick test run on the new ones, just to check that everything was working. I'll be resetting them once I officially kick things off. Only little Neotchi up there will get to stay. I should probably reset my pink P's too, but I'll have to reset it whenever I get around to english patching it, so I might as well just wait until then.

The purple P's is the best running one out of this lot - it's loud, has no lag, is more responsive.... The blue one isn't as laggy as the pink, but is also much quieter. I wonder why they all run so different?

Anyway, I'll end it for now. When I do get to actually running all these, I'll probably adjust how often I update. Maybe once as a teen, and then again after I get the Tamatomo for the adults? I'll see how it goes.

I've noticed this with some vintage models, too. The most likely cause is that Bandai used equivalent compatible parts at different points during the production-runs for these devices, so, hypothetically, some later models may have slightly faster processors and different speaker parts that were used once the original parts ceased production and were superseded by revised versions - it's the only logical explanation.

This is also why Nintendo has a history of issuing revisions of their handheld consoles late into their lifespan - the DSi and New 3DS are examples of this. The only difference is that they try to use that as a selling-point to hook numbers-obsessives, even though the extra power is pretty much never used, and Bandai does not. :P

      Hi! This is a first for me, doing any type of game log. My name is Dame, and I played Tamagotchis when they originally came out, but never that much. I now am busying myself with my Magic Blue Tamagotchi On.
      Hoshipontchi ♂ (First in run)
      Other things to note:
      I am nocturnal, so I have set my Tamagotchi time to be 13 hours ahead of my time. I am using the Tamagotchi On app everyday. I am looking up some information, but not much. I am not planning on getting any certain Tama or anything off the bat. I am fine with being offered tips or advice! I am looking for people to friend on the app who are active.

      Hi! I thought I'd try making a log, since I've always enjoyed looking at them. I might not be terribly active on here, but we'll see!  

      Right now I have a Tengutchi (named Kuma, which means 'bear')! He just got married to a lovely little ninja lady today...

      And here is his little blob son!

      When I was a kid, I had this pet and could never get it to grow into an adult. We weren't allowed to have virtual pets at school (this was when they were huge and almost everyone in my class had one!), so I begged my mom to take it to work and care for it... I couldn't even mute it and sneak it with me, because even when it's muted, you still hear the attention beeps and it wants attention every 15-20 minutes or so. However, each time she'd bring it home it'd be dead. I could never get this thing to grow and eventually the batteries died or I lost track of it, but something reminded me of it recently. While looking around, I happened to find a still sealed Bobo Panda Byte for a reasonable price on ebay, so I jumped on it.
      Now that I have a new one, I've figured out why it died so often, so I thought it'd be fun to log my progress into the new stages of growth! I originally joined to ask for help from any other Panda Byte players, but it doesn't really seem like there are any active here at the moment, unless they just never saw my thread. 🙂 Here is my original thread, it shares a bit of info and activities involved for this pet, if anyone is interested.
      Although I'm starting my log now, my panda just turned 5 today. This is a new thing for me, because it had died a few times already (and apparently many times when I was a kid). It seems that from ages 2-4, you just want to have her watch tv to "pause" her stats from changing, because she'll only eat apples and candy during this time, and they don't fill her hunger hearts. She won't eat bamboo and bread (as far as I can tell) until she turns 5, so unless there is some other secret thing you're supposed to do, I just have her watch tv when she's not sleeping. At ages 0-1, she's a baby and only drinks a bottle, plays games, and sleeps, so there isn't much to log for either of those two stages.
      My panda turned 5 at 10:00 this morning, and appears to have all of her activities unlocked. She can now exercise and do the other learning options/activities (hula hoop and swinging), and finally eats bread and bamboo. I haven't had to dress her for the weather yet, but I'm excited to finally try that once I see a weather icon! She will also apparently run away at times when she gets older, and have friends visit, but I'm not sure what age this happens at. Once she's fully grown, she'll get one of 5 or so appearances, so I'm looking forward to seeing which one I get.
      Here is a picture of her wandering around at age 5 (if anyone has suggestions for a better photo hosting service, let me know lol). I'll try to get pictures of her doing some of her other activities along the way.

      OH THIS SEEMS VERY CUTE???? I never did these tamagotchi logs on here as a kid omg I’ll just share all my ramblings here then so I don’t clog up the status update feed 🤣

      Hi I’m going to restart doing a log after not being here for a year. Anyhoo, I still have the same Tamagotchi white color on :). I’ll update later

      Hello everyone and welcome to my log! 
      I would like to start this log by saying happy new year to all of you and wish you all the best in 2021. I'm sure last year was rough and we all struggled during the unexpected pandemic so please stay strong and safe because clearly the fight is not over, and I hope that this year is going to be the end of it and a beginning for all good things.  
      As you can see from the title that I'm going to log here about my Magical Witch and the Devilgotchi which I am so excited about and for some reason worried at the same time! I will be logging while I'm exploring these two fascinating toys and yes it took me SO long playing with them for what is going on in world, but the time has finally come and I hope you guys will enjoy this post. 
      So today is the day that I finally decided to put some batteries into my new evil babies and the excitement I felt when I turned them on! 
      Starting with the Devilgotchi:
      when I removed the tab I immediately saw to what appears to be  like a smoke that lasted for a few seconds until the bat showed up as you can see below:

      the bat just kept flying and flashing for about 2-3 minutes and then it evolved to Deviltchi:

      a new Devil is born, without really realizing the consequences of raising a devil has just begun! 😈
      I took sometime figuring out the menu and of course fed him and tried to fill his both Hunger and Happy meter. Right after that I played the 'Catch' game, all you have to do is throw a star for your devil to catch it. You need to collect 4 stars in each round to win. As far as I know the game doesn't end unless you press C or lose but I'm not sure about that. 
      I actually spent good amount of time playing the game until... he.. slept during one of the rounds and made a very evil sound, not gonna lie I was caught off guard when I saw him sleeping and then suddenly he started smiling while the screen was inverting. Took me a while when I realized that this is him being mischievous and he wouldn't let me continue playing! By that time he stopped doing it so when I went and checked his Devil Power or DP is increased to 50, that means 10 more points were added because I didn't take any action quicker! 
      After that happened I thought I need to keep an eye on this little devil because I'm not allowing this to happen again, so I did that and made sure that every time he misbehaved and tried to be mischievous I will discipline him which is exactly what happened  
      This is him being naughty and not allowing me checking his health status after he beeped: 

      that was the only time I was able to take a pic of how often and quickly he will pull pranks on me which makes me laugh every time I see him sabotaging the games, not allowing me to check his status or even rejecting the food when he calls for it!  
      That helped me reduce his Devil Power a lot a long with 'Shaking Hands' with him. Randomly he will beep while looking at me and giving me a lovely little evil smirk which basically means that he is being friendly and wants peace:

      Ultimately, all I want to trigger is a 'Good End' and a good looking character when he reaches his final stage, all that can be done if I manage to discipline him and make sure the friendship level between us is good. Only time could tell we should just wait and see...
      The Magical Witch:
      After inserting the batteries oh my I couldn't believe I'm actually starting my very first Magical Witch that happens to be the air witch, also called Baluluna. After setting the time I waited for about 5 minutes to finally have my witch arrive! Also I would like to say that the animation is beautiful when there is a moon on the side of the screen that keeps rotating until your witch arrive, thought that was a perfect intro that suits the theme of the toy  

      She was hungry and wasn't feeling well (as she should be I mean who take 5 minutes to show up) I fed her some seeds and snacks to fill her meters up.
      After settling her down, I went and searched about mixing the ingredients to create potions because that's what Magical Witches are about, using magic to either curse or cure another witch. I tried the first time mixing the very first potion that you can make and things did not turn out well...

      the first attempt as you can see above didn't end well, while using the mixing bowl my witch looked funny when suddenly the potion exploded at her haha! She looked a bit sick and it took me a lot of time to actually figure out how to cure her from the explosion and turned out one of the seeds she has in store can actually cure her but needed to be used multiple times. I decided to give her a break for few minutes and go for another try one more time. This time she did well by mixing the ingredients well and we got what we wanted for our very first mix which is mushrooms:

      Each time you successfully mix the ingredients you will get three pieces from the same mix. I gave my witch another break and made sure she is fed and healthy before going for the second potion she has to make. 
      The second mix went very well and it took only one attempt:

      As can be seen, the second item she obtained is a broom, which will help us obtain the third item/food that we will try to mix tomorrow.  
      Paying attecntion to her MP or Magical Power could give us a really good results with the witch behavior and how well she could produce different mixtures, if there's another witch involved that will help it increase even faster but we should be alright with just one.
      The End:
      That was all it for today, I personally am enjoying them both equally and I believe the more is yet to come. Although my Devil keeps beeping while it's asleep as I'm writing this it beeped more than 5 times (now it's 3am where I live) I've always loved the fact that you need to take care of a Devil and that didn't disappoint especially that I have terrible history with vintage tamagotchis but this one is different I can tell.  The Magical witches don't necessarily function as a Tamagotchi but they do look alike. For example the icons are similar, the buttons and how they respond is the same and I think the overall it's simpler gameplay wise. Definitely excited to see what we can do tomorrow so stay tuned.  
      this is the end of today's log, hope you guys enjoyed it please feel free to comment about anything.
