I’ve had tamagotchis for over 15 years but I’ve never been super serious about them. Anyway, I’ve been doing a lot of research and I’ve found out a bunch about them. So I’ve decided to really take care of one of mine this time.
Her name is Greg and she’s already matured to adolescence. Anyway, we’ll see how it goes.
Hello and welcome to my mega bootleg log, and also first log ever!
I will be running a bunch of different bootlegs and knockoffs, some of which are obscure. If you have any questions about one, please leave a question and I will reply to it in the next entry.
Where to find fakes: eBay is good for older knockoffs from the 90's, while Aliexpress is great for finding new ones. Taobao also has a lot, but you might need a middleman depending on where you live. I don't recommend buying any besides M&D ones (QPet, Nana Moon, etc.) because they tend to be really bad otherwise.
First up is the Crystal Warriors 10th Anniversary game. Info links:
English instructions here.
Baidu article here.
All 130 episodes of Crystal Warriors here.
Pics of the box.
After doing some research it turns out the cartoon was only 8 years old at the time these were released, but apparently in order to coincide with the Pendulum 20th Anniversaries M&D made this rerelease. The instructions also state that there are 4 different versions, similar to the real Pendulum releases, but this is false and they all have Vritramon. (However, the original release of this did have 4 and had more care features, and there's always a possibility of M&D releasing more in the future.) This probably isn’t going to fool anyone, but is it a bad knockoff? Surprisingly, no. I’ve never played a Digimon before and am not that familiar with them, but from what I’ve seen it is kinda similar.
There are 6 different tournaments, and I have 3 more to go. Then, there is a final boss. After that I have to replay through everything again in order to get 200% completion, so nothing will be missed.
Recap of Day 1, Sorry no photos this time:
I started the Crystal Warrior up, and right off the bat I knew this wasn’t going to be a standard vpet. It’s more of a game that mimics a virtual pet. This was surprising since the Nana Moon minis have all their features entact, but not these. Unfortunately, when M&D pumped these out to cash in on the anniversary Pendulums, they got rid of pet functions. There's still an incentive to check on it, since its power will slowly deplete every few hours. I just put the tab back in when I'm busy since it has a save feature.
After reading the instructions and grinding with the 3 games to buy a crystal, it was time to enter the first tournament. Evolving the monster makes it very OP, rendering the Help feature obsolete since using crystals to evolve is necessary to win. I had no idea what was going on, but it was a swift victory. The second one was harder, since I tried relying on the Help. That ended up backfiring, and I lost during the 4th round. For “Help,” there are 3 other characters to choose from, which are from the 3 other versions. Each swapped warrior replaces Vritramon and evolves into its second form to attack, but can only be used once per tournament. Battles only last a few rounds, even if both are still standing. Whoever has the most HP left wins. Since HP doesn’t replenish between rounds, I was lucky to have even made it that far. When you lose, the warrior’s power/training bar stays the same but you have to try again. There’s a progress page that shows total battles won (regardless if the tourney is lost) and the total completion rate.
After grinding for more money and rebuying the crystal, it was pretty easy. Rinse and repeat for round 3, and I have 3 more to go.
Now, this is kind of a nitpick, but the spritework on this is kind of mediocre. Some of the characters look poorly drawn. I understand that a lot of detail needs to be added in a small space, but sometimes the results leave me scratching my head.
I mean, I can kind of see how the sprite matches the drawing, but this was my first impression without knowing what it was supposed to be.
I decided to start writing a Log for my Tamagotchis. First at all, I need to say some things about me and about this Log:
My first language isn't english, so this Log, as all my post, will probably be in a bad or really basic english. I'm sorry about that, but I'm trying my best. I don't remember the name of every character, and I honestly don't want to, so I'm not gonna say my Tamagotchis species every time. Photos should be enough, I guess. I run the same Tama for long period, usually. Sadly I don't have a cool phone or camera, so photos are gonna be low quality. Sorry.
Well, now I can start. First at all, here's a photo of my collection:
Tamagotchi Connection V3 (European Version) Jungle Camoflage Tamagotchi Friends (European Version) Blue Gem ... Yeeeah, that's all. I started collecting Tama at the end of 2018, so that's everything I've got. Literally.
But that's just for now. I'm going to buy new Tamas soon, even if I don't really want an huge collection; I'm fine with these, for now.
29/01/19: I just ordered a Japanese Tamagotchi Ocean. It is so cool! I wanted it sooo bas when I was a child, but back then I wasn't allowed by my parents to buy things online. It is going to arrive near the end of February, but that's ok.
Ok, now I can start my Log. Enjoy.
29 January, Tuesday
Well, what to say. I'm running my V3, in this period, and that's pretty cool. It's really simple, and not really demanding, but that's fine. The shell design is actually this one, I think it is one of the best for the V3.
At the moment, I'm at the 4th Generation. My Tamagotchi's name is Mario; I chose this name because I'm studying the Roman Empire at school (again.), and Mario was one of the most important roman general before Caesar (Yeaaah, that's boring).
I started to take care of him during sunday, after his mom left during the night; during the first hour he wasn't really demanding.
After a while, he became a child, and he was a sort of... ball with a punk hairstyle. That's a funny way to describe it, I know; next time, I'll get a photo.
It is the first time I actually enjoyed so much the child stage; Mario wasn't demanding at all, and for the first time ever I actually managed to play Bump without losing at the first try.
So yesterday I paused the V3 during the morning for school, and I returned home late, around 3 PM, so he just woke up at 4 PM. I tought he wasn't going to change into a teen because of that, but he actually did; while I was sleeping during the afternoon, he became an adorable Young Mimitchi. He's now even more cute than before.
I mean, look at him, he's just so happy.
I fed him until he had 4 hearts for each Hungry and Happy, and then I played with him a little. I'm actually good at Heading, I think that's the second coolest game after Get.
Well, today nothing particoular happened. He just bob around the screen, and now he's taking a bath.
It would be cool to get a Mimitchi as an adult, but I don't think that's gonna happen, 'cause I'm not everytime on my Tama and, sometimes, I miss some calls. That's all for today, bye!
Hello! Let me start off with saying I know running five Tamas at a time is completely insane, but since this is the first time I've decided to try logging my Tamas growth I figured it could be a fun ride. I've been running the colour Tamas for a few days, but I figured I might as well include them too. The main focus will be on the P1 and Angelgotch as I had just started them both up today.
This is going to be my first time trying to do a full run of my P1 so I'm super excited despite the simplicity. I'm hoping for Mametchi, but I'll be happy with any good character. As for the Angelcotch I'm hoping I can get the Angel Twins again as they are my favourite character on this version.
I also plan on marrying off Kuchipatchi on my P's once the vintage Tamas are teens as I've completed his TaMaToMo Puzzle yesterday. As for my ID and IDL they both still have TaMaToMo I need before I'm ready to marry them off.
Current stages as of this post: Babytchi (P1), Okbaketchi 2 (Angel), Chamametchi (ID), Furawatchi/Violetchi (IDL), Kuchipatchi (P's)
So i just got into tamagochis, and i decided to write a log.
Nothing too special.
Anyway, here are the things that happened;
DAY 1: It's gudetama. but with a baby bonnet. ok
DAY 2: Still a baby. chopsticks attempted to steal egg. slept at 8:00pm, woke up two hours later as the really happy egg. yay.
DAY 3: Woke up at 7:00am. nothing too special.
more to come.
Hey there! I go by Spiral and I've been lurking here on and off for quite awhile now; finally decided to open up an account.
My main focus is on the Digimon pets but I'm looking forward to trying out one of the newer color screen Tamagotchi's next month!
I'm currently running the Dukemon and Beelzemon 20th Anniversary Pendulums side by side and seeing how that goes!
They are in Baby II stage at the moment but should likely evolve to their Rookie forms soo- okay right when I typed this they evolved!
I ended up with Tentomon and Gomamon!
When your first eggs reach Rookie stage you get to choose another egg. These guys are in their Baby II forms:
Peti Meramon and Pyocomon!
That's all for day one!
