The instruction manual for the Tamagotchi ON claims that twins appear "every once in a while, " implying that it is a rare occurrence. I am challenging this claim with circumstantial evidence that points towards it actually being based on genetics in a similar way to how physical traits are determined.
I am currently in the 15th generation of my Tamagotchi family. After tallying up which generations included twins and which didn't, I found that there were 10 out of 15 instances in which twins occurred. You could even take the first generation out of that, since it is impossible to have twins on the first generation, which would make it 10 out of 14 instances. This means that over 70% of the time, I have received twins, which is way too likely to be, "every once in a while."
This could be chalked up to really good luck, but it's not as fun that way, is it? I honestly believe, based on my results, that my Tamagotchi bloodline is somehow predisposed to twins. My first set of twins happened immediately in my second generation, which sparked the long line of twins to come. I think Bandai knew what they were doing with this, as in they intentionally made it this way just to add depth to the genetics mechanic as a whole.
Let me know what y'all think.
This post is about vintage, connections and up to uratama. About how to repair them.
My native language isn't English, so this might be a bit of a strange read. 😋
If you have a pet that have lazy buttons or fading screen, or maybe doesn't seem to work at all, there is a thing you can do.
You can open up your device, it's easy! Take out all the screws, but remember where they are supposed to sit! Then you can take the screen off. It's No worries! And of it's broken - take the chance to fix it! It's no problem!
Then after you have taken off everything, you clean everything on the circuit board. Careful! With alcohol or some other ok liquid for cleaning electronic stuff. You do this with a cotton wad stick, like those for the ears... But don't use a used one! Don't be cheap, take a new one. It's worth it.
Then if something is wrong the paper behind the screen on your Tamagotchi, like water damage maybe? Then you can throw away and make a new one! Draw something naughty and put it where the old paper was and TADA! New background.
Make sure to clean the buttons and where they push! Press them a bit insideout and clean.
Well, after everything is clean, you put it together!!! Remember where the screws went??? I hope so. They have different sizes you know. But don't worry - you did! Yay! It wasn't hard at all and there wasn't many of them!
When the little critter is put back together, you put the batteries in and try it out. The screen will be stronger now and the buttons a lot bettet!
But if it still does NOT work it might have something else wrong. You might need to solder. That is a bit more advanced.
You'll need to change the 47uf capacitor! I'll write how... It's the funny round things with legs. You need to get it out! Cut it out of the circuit board and make sure EVERY part of it is out. Ok? Then you take your new 47uf capacitor and put it in it's place! Make sure it sits the right way! And you solder that capacitator into place!
But some pets use different capacitators, so get the right uf. Ok? There are different volt in capacitators but Tamas use very little.
Soldering isn't so hard. Save your Tamagotchi!
(If it's just your sound wires, then you can hot glue them.)
Anyway... I hope this wicked post helps a Tamagotchi breeder... Somewhere.
A take apart video!!! Notice the screen. Clean it!
Look! A Good guide for yr EYEs! (This guy knows Tamagotchi!)
Good Luck! 🧐
I've enjoyed reading the logs I've seen here, and have decided to start my own. I'm focusing on my Tamagotchi ON/Meets--this is primarily a log of each generation. Right now I've started the Fairytale ON, though more will be added.
Updates should be about every generation, or about every four days. Pictures will be included, of course. :p
Blue Fairytale ON - First Generation
For my first generation I had a male tama:
(Unfortunately I didn't discover the contrast setting until a little later.)
All through his youth, Mametchi had spent a lot of time at the resort daycare playing with his friend, Lovelitchi. After she ruined his proposal by trying to propose to him (twice!) he finally managed to propose to her.
Naturally, she agreed (after all, she'd just proposed to him twice already).
And they lived happily ever after.
(For those wondering why I didn't accept the proposal the first two times: I wanted to wait until Mametchi was at full happiness before marrying him off.)
Hey guys, not a super urgent question, but I was wondering the difference between the three versions, as well as a few other questions.
1.) ON vs. Meets! vs. M!x what is the difference or at least the main one, they all seem to look about the same when researching them, so what would be the benefits to buying a meets and a mix?
2.) Can the TMGCON and TMGC Meets (japan) connect to one another?
I'm pretty curious as this is my first tamagotchi in years and I've been eyeing the sanrio m!x on ebay but I wanted to be sure its worth it before making that investment, plus I'd be nice if I can connect the two. Thanks!
