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.

Based on the instruction manual, this thing seems to be ripping off the Digivice iC x10-x20

I know this is kind of off-topic but, if you can draw can you draw Lovesoratchi x Yumemitchi? If you could that would be much appreciated. (Why Yumemitchi x Lovesoratchi you ask? well i think they look so similar. I think they where made for each-other! ^-^ )

@darkmagic616 It is. A lot of the graphics are copied or at least heavily borrowed from those versions. It even has the same RPM screen, and the mechanic where stopping at a certain point on the meter unleashes a more powerful attack. They didn’t change a thing! What an odd knockoff- the case rips off one version and the gameplay rips off another.

 

@MarcoFusion Sorry, but no. Any more drawings will be for this log. Now, if you request a character from stuff I’m currently running (like Crystal Warriors right now), then okay ;D

 

Day 2

Using the reset trick to pause it caused the memory to wipe last time, so I’m at square one. This entry will mostly be pics I wasn’t able to get last time. Pics will cover tournaments 1-2 There are a ton of photos, so here is a link to the PostImg gallery:

https://postimg.cc/gallery/1t219npvq/

In the meantime, I will be looking for a better image hosting site and working on day 3’s entry.

Another day, another tournament. Again, apply all the stuff about minigame training from the previous days, and done. I prefer the first minigame, since you’re almost always guaranteed to get $200, as opposed to the other two. The catching one is also okay, and sometimes gives more than $200, but sometimes it only goes to around $100.

This is getting so boring T_T Going for 200% doesn’t seem worth it, so I’ll just complete the main game. I really want to see the final boss, and after you beat it you get a special crystal. If it can be used repeatedly (to avoid endless grinding), then I’ll go for it.

Tip: How to mega attack: Quickly start pressing B and gradually slow down as the counter goes down, but never stop. If you can pull this off successfully, it will work.

Day 4

Same old, same old. This time I had to grind after leaving it alone for a few days; the power meter was almost empty. I mostly played the first minigame again, forming strategies like constantly shooting or doing so in a wave pattern. I also played the third game a few times too, since it’s easy to just mash B when doing something else.

This is where things get real. You will want the power bar to be at 100%. After training, head over to the tournament and get ready to fight again! In order to be successful, it’s recommended that you use the tip in the last entry to ensure Vritramon does his special attack, because failing to do so will make it very hard to survive the tournament. The AI is smarter at this point, and will constantly dodge attacks. They won’t do much damage per hit, but it adds up! Either defeat or outlast each opponent to win. If you succeed, that makes only two more tournaments to go, and then the final boss. Yay! 

Pics: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ykg3osjmnhc5ot3/AABeXHK7xG2hhn7tUiF-toGua?dl=0

Tip: Do not buy/use cheap weapons especially later on. If the spirit unleashed from the weapon dies, so will Vritramon. It’s a really awful mechanic, so be forewarned.

Sorry for the delay, I haven’t had the time to continue my log until now. I will be running this handwarmer pet for a week. These don’t have a specific product name, but on Aliexpress they show up under “Handwarmer pet.” If you want to learn more about the programming and the watch version, see the “OK by A-Watch” thread under Tamagotchi Cousins.

Day 5

It begins! I chose Ichigotchi and named her Sunny. I didn’t end up having to do much after that besides feeding and cleaning. Hungry and happiness take 2 meals to fill each heart, and there are no penalties for using lots of snacks. There’s also a separate health meter used to measure when the Tamagotchi will die from neglect. 

spacer.png

Another way to increase happiness is by playing minigames, many of which are similar to those on the new Touma Pet that came out recently. I’m convinced they’re by the same company because of that, which might actually be M&D because of similarities between the QPet Quolor and the other two. The “warm pet” is very easy to care for, but there are also lots of costumes and it’s always nice getting to mix it up. 

Which costume should Sunny wear next?:

•  Tomato

•  Pineapple

•  Mango

Also, if you have any questions then I will answer them in the next entry. Thanks for reading and again, my apologies for the massive delay.

•On a different note, the handwarmer function is nice. It heats up quickly and can get very warm. Fortunately, this can be turned off. From my experience the Tamagotchi side of the unit doesn’t get hot from it either. I haven’t tried the power bank function yet, though.

When I woke up there were 3 poops and Sunny got sick from it. This was an easy fix. After cleaning the mess she drank some tea at the morgue from the original Tamagotchi Color. The tea part must be original since I don’t recall any Tamagotchis having a choice besides medicine. Today I put Sunny in her mango costume, which is definitely one of the funnier ones:

spacer.png

These things don’t have incentives like growth stages or Gotchi points, so Sunny will be cared for one last day before I show off the other character and some of the games.

After 2 days of trying, I finally managed to get a closeup of Sunny:

spacer.png

I will try to get one of her in the pineapple costume tomorrow. There are also a few Kikitchi costumes I want to try and snap like the Doraemon costume.

Day 7

Victory! More closeups!

Sunny randomly got sick so I gave her some tea again.

Her happiness then went down by 2, so I sent her to the park to play.

It also began to rain. 

 

Food for thought: Would this count as cannibalism?

Edit: This is the last of Sunny. Tomorrow she will be replaced with Kikitchi.

Day 8

Meet Dan. Say hi, Dan!

spacer.png

Today I didn’t do much outside of basic care, but I did manage to get one more very special closeup...

spacer.png

The Bootleg Log mascot!

 

Day 9 

Dan’s happiness dropped by 2 after I left the handwarmer alone for a while. This was a great opportunity to get some snaps of the games. There are 8 in total. In the “A-Watch” thread under Tamagotchi Cousins I linked a video from Ashens (of all people) where he reviewed a bootleg GameBoy. Just about every game on this comes from that system. These games have also appeared on the Touma Pet, another fake Tamagotchi that came out a few weeks ago. But more on that on a later day.

IMG-E4739.jpg

My favorite is this bubble dodging game. It’s really frustrating trying to play on such a small screen, but it was mildly addicting trying to score 100. The handwarmer also has the basic Tamagotchi Color games.  

IMG-E4749.jpg

The weirdest is this game where you have to catch fruit falling from a fighter jet while avoiding bombs. What?! The second weirdest is a game where you have to control a bridge to get the jumping bears across the lava. If one falls in, it’s game over.

IMG-E4753-Copy.jpg

Poor panda :(

IMG-E4755-Copy.jpg

The last one I played was the driving game. It’s a bare bones driving sim that hardly counts as a game. There are no objectives like collecting items or racing. It’s just driving for 100 seconds. The speed can go all the way up to at least 300 kmh, but I can’t stand anything more than the default 100.

After that, Dan played in a thunderstorm O_o

IMG-E4760.jpg

 

IMG-E4758-Copy.jpg

Oh yeah, and did I mention this thing has a built in pedometer? In order for it to detect steps, you have to hold it sideways and carry it the entire time. I don’t think it’s very accurate. I took, like, 20 steps and it said 80 when I checked it, and this is after I calibrated my height and weight correctly.

Like most cheap pedometers, it uses a little metal ball inside that clanks around, so the results are to be expected.

 

One last thing:

BSOX5446.gif

This time I had the sound on when it happened. It makes all sorts of disgusting noises when it "goes". Well, points for realism I guess 🤢 Also, it makes QPet noises afterwards. Maybe this was a quick cash grab by M&D for the winter season?? Who knows.

Day 10

On no! Dan died after being left alone for too long!

spacer.png

Not to worry.

spacer.png

Yes, a Tamagotchi with a revive option. That totally doesn’t defeat the purpose of the game.

*Tomorrow is the final day for this fake Tama. Any additional photos taken in the future will be here*

Also, I was thinking of getting one of these pen vpets. Not a guarantee, but I’m kind of tempted because the programming is from a rare 90’s multipet. Each pet has their own growth stages and even animation, and it seems really neat.

This is the last day so any additional photos taken in the future will be at either of these 2 links:

I did a reset to see if this thing can save your progress. Apparently, it does. I pushed the super-tiny reset button on the front and went through the usual time set, discovering that it wasn’t a hard reset. Soft resetting will only reset your pet’s stats, and if you turned the volume off it will be turned back on. This Tamagotchci does not keep age or Discipline, so you only have to feed it food and snacks and it will be back to normal. With that out of the way, let’s take a look at the QPet  Quolor.  This next portion will cover everything from marriage to birth, growing up, and then death. It might not even take a full week to go through all of that, but we’ll see.

 

Day 11

I got mine last year not too long after they came out. This bootleg interested me because a few years before getting back into Tamagotchis I saw the Tamagezi come and go, and passed every opportunity to get one. By the time I became a fan again, they were all gone! Then suddenly, this entirely new bootleg popped out of nowhere. Is it the same in quality? Not by a long run, but for a bootleg it’s not bad at all. 

 

spacer.png

This pet is the first color Tama I’ve seen to feature 2 languages built in. There isn’t nearly as much character dialogue than in an official, but it’s nice being able to have that option. When I put the batteries in, I discovered that it had saved my previous Tamagotchi from my last run. It’s a 5-year-old Ahirukutchi, who had grown from Kinotchi to Mametchi and Kikitchi. Woah. So from my understanding, the first character you pick will be the adult for the first generation, and from then on it’s different. I can’t tell if it actually keeps track of care, but doing the bare minimum might make you get Mametchi. How ironic.

And now for one of the most disturbing moments in virtual pet history. 

spacer.png

Umm, what? Ahurukutchi is a toddler character <____< 

Anyways... The baby character will always follow a pattern, being the opposite gender of the parent. The name you enter at the beginning will be the same for every single one as long as it doesn’t die or get reset. I usually just take the bare minimum care with the QPet for the first 2 days. Even if the Tama is determined by health, what’s the point if I can just reset and choose?

 

The QPet Quolor omits many of the original Tamagotchi Color features, but there are a few originals in their place. Let’s have a look at the School. This option is available until day 3, where it is replaced with Work.

spacer.png

Solve a simple arithmetic problem, and your Tama will become happy. Get it wrong and it becomes shocked. As with most of the new additions, it doesn’t seem do anything except simulate real life. Again with the ToumaPet (can you tell what fake I want to get next?) this feature was also carried over, further proving that M&D also made that.

Afterwards, a few hours went by and while I was doing homework it grew into Chamametchi!

Day 12

When I checked on Chamametchi this is what was in the living room. The QPet has little holiday decorations like the real one does, except in the QPetthey’re all Chinese holidays. A while ago I found a list that had all of the holidays, but now I can’t find it -__- Go figure. 

spacer.png

One of the main Tamagotchi Color features that sort of got included was the Happy item quest. The only example I’ve been able to find on the QPet is when there’s a heart-shaped cloud outside

spacer.png

But since this thing doesn’t keep track of all the secrets you’ve found, there’s no real incentive to find them all. Additionally, many of the items from the original were removed. 

 

Like I said, this is my first Tama log so if I’m doing this wrong let me know. And as always, if there are any comments/questions about what’s currently being ran please comment and I will answer in the next entry.

Day 13

Out of the corner of my eye, I saw the screen light up and when I picked it up Chamametchi just stood there and turned into Lavuzutchi. There was no special animation or anything, which is disappointing. She should turn into Makiko next, and then Memepetchi. My question: why didn’t the bootleggers just include the oldies? Or better yet, why did they make the toddlers the oldies? Oh well.

spacer.png

For extra money I’ve been growing veggies, which can then be sold at the pawn shop. One of my minor goals in this part is to save enough by just growing plants to eventually plant and sell the most expensive one for extra Gotchipoints.

spacer.png

What a seedy-looking cashier.

This is what it looks and sounds like when a QPet’s batteries are dying:

spacer.png

https://www.dropbox.com/s/sn6gifsqyhdmde7/New%20Recording%2012.m4a?dl=0

 

Day 14

Lavuzutchi is 3 now, so she’s old enough to work. Selecting that will have your QPet working at a construction site, doing some sort of digging, or whatever that is.

spacer.png

This is a great way to get Gotchipoints without even trying. Just push the B button every now and then and wrack up enough to get food or even remodeling. After that, I pawned off some apples for 600 Gotchipoints, with a profit of 200. 

For happiness, I just spam the Park feature until the meter is full. The QPet will only play with other QPets of the opposite gender. Besides that and the lack of non-raisable characters, it’s the same as the one on the real deal. 

spacer.png

I’m thinking maybe Lavuzutchi will grow tomorrow morning, but I’m not sure. Maybe it will even happen later today. 

As a question to everyone, what happens when QPets connect? Is it worth getting another one?

 

@Eggiweg Thank you! I’m still getting the hang of this.

Day 14 Continued

The interesting thing about gardening is eventually I could buy the next best seed plus the Rapid Growth serum and it would be more efficient than waiting. Within a matter of minutes I was able complete this goal. The end result was an extra 3000 Gotchipoints, well worth the time and patience for hardly having to do anything. 

015095-E6-F7-F3-4-C03-B953-B226737-BA913

Here’s a tip: 

Rose seeds cost 1000, Rapid Growth is 250, and the pawn shop pays 2000 for it. At a 750 profit, this is even better than spamming the Work option!

8-C262-C1-A-EB1-E-43-B8-86-D1-FEBCD6-C86

After discovering this, I was able to keep repeating it until I had over 10,000 GP. Then it was time for some well deserved rest after all that hard work.

85251439-7976-41-EA-828-E-7019-D471-B715

605-B0182-C5-FC-4899-80-F2-969-B3-F1-B4-

Day 15 

The QPet is 4, so it can now marry. Here’s what the entire scene looks like:

351889-E0-0-AD8-421-C-90-FB-8-DB5-C33804

78022-F68-35-C5-4234-8376-7-AD34-C7-DFD5

With my new money scheme in play, it is time to rack up even more cash and aim for the best character, assuming this even tracks care.

2-A614084-9674-410-E-80-F2-743806-D15728

Like mother like... son.

Eventually it grew into what it’s supposed to, Ahikurutchi. Huh. Maybe taking good care actually makes it grow normally. I was working on the GIFs for this when it grew so I unfortunately don’t have pics, but it’s basically the same as a normal Tamagotchi growth animation (whenever it actually plays).

53-E2525-C-D17-B-488-C-82-DD-8-D2-CF46-C

I’m liking this part so far. The QPet turned out to be really fun even for the simplicity. Hopefully this is making up for the mediocre handwarmer run.

Another massive update. Edit: On second thought this looks a lot shorter than 1000 words, but there was a lot that was shortened Lol

Day 16
With so much disposable GP, it was time to renovate a little bit more and try new things.

IMB-27n1-SA.gif

IMB-Br-Tc7d.gif
Yeah, I’m a bad Tamagotchi parent.

Day 17
It became Kuchipatchi! This is the teenager stage now. I wonder what the adult will be?
I got a Touma Pet, so that’s next. I’m so excited! Going off of the instruction manual, it has a lot of new stuff!! When the Touma hatched I pressed the right side button and this Chain Chomp thing came and ate my Tama then farted it out O_O 

IMB-Sc-JUz3.gif

When I saw this I needed to do a double take.
There are a few other little animations that happen when the two extra buttons are pressed. Pressing A causes the Touma to jump. If you get the timing right, you can even make it hit the ceiling and light. Ouch!

IMG-6069.jpg

IMG-6068.jpg

Making the light flicker

Charizard also makes a cameo. I originally posted this as a status update but realized the pic didn't show up -_-

B998-FC2-D-457-F-4746-BF13-6-C88805669-A

Not much to say gameplay wise. It's just a graphically-better QPet with added games and a texting feature.

Day 18
Not much. Just basic care. I realized that in the upgraded bedroom the QPet sleeps on a log.

IMG-5992.jpg

Day 19
Kuchipatchi should grow any second now, and so should the Touma.
*Later*
Only the Touma Pet grew, and it was the one I chose at the beginning.

IMB-iri-QLT.gif

Rambling:
(Not to go too off topic, but I hope the Tamagotchi On is popular enough to spark another v-pet fad even if minor. Imagine something similar to the original one, except with some color v-pets!  M&D is doing a really good job at improving and I can’t wait to see what they create next. It would be nice to see others attempt the same.
I also wonder if it would be possible for another company to rerelease/remake the Tamagezi. I’ve seen newer fakes use shells from JiDan and programming from Apollo, so the idea of others obtaining Tamagezi software isn’t too impossible.)

Day 20
Even though Kuchipatchi hasn’t grown, my Touma Pet did, and now it’s an adult! It will be another day before it can marry, just like the QPet. This one takes only 3 stages to become an adult, and since it’s basically a graphically upgraded QPet I’m thinking Kuchipatchi isn’t going to grow. This is really weird, as I could’ve swore it was 4... Oh well. 

In other news, Touma Pets are now on Aliexpress.
Ughhh I should’ve just waited another week 🙃

Day 21
Kuchipatchi got married!

IMB-Elw-YCk.gif

And so did the Touma Pet!!

IMB-o5gjm-O.gif

The big difference between the Touma and QPet is that in the Touma, the baby can be the same gender as your previous pet. On the other hand, the QPet follows a pattern between them depending on the gender of the first generation. An hour after baby stage, the QPet mutated into Lavuzutchi. What?! Now I’m really curious what it will become. Fingers crossed for Memetchi. Next gen I’d like to get ShimaShimatchi. When the Touma Pet evolves it sort of shakes and then switches immediately into the next stage. No special animation or anything. 

IMG-6216.jpg

Day 22
Not much besides playing minigames. The weirdest is Flappy Bird, an 8bit port of the original game. It’s as good as you’d expect, as in, NOT. Somehow I managed to get 24 despite the non-existent physics. (Edit: Now my high score is 84!) The most amazing in concept is the shmup game. Unfortunately, it plays as well as a shmup on a Tamagotchi would... To make it work on a Tamagotchi everything is really laggy and awful. Still, E for effort. 

Day 23
I got Makiko! I’ve had this evolution line before last year. Nice to confirm these actually have growth patterns, however distorted and abnormal.

IMG_6274.jpg

Day 24
My baby QPet evolved into Kuchipatchi as the toddler/teen stage. I think I’m finally going to get ShimaShimatchi!! (Edit: Nope!) After that happens, I will take a break from QPet and only run Touma until I get busy again. 
My goal is to get every QPet character eventually.

The Touma Pet also got married

IMB-fyqm-I4.gif

This time I got a boy, which is the same character except blue. What a disappointment, but I will cut slack because of all the effort that was put into everything else. I discovered a funny graphical glitch that can happen by pressing the C button repeatedly when it sleeps:

IMG_6528.jpg

If this was 2011 someone would probably write a creepypasta about this.

A few days ago I also discovered another graphical glitch. I don’t know the correct terminology, but basically a certain line of pixels was repeated down to the bottom of the display for a split second. That was more of a one off thing I guess. Iirc it’s the same method. Maybe it was trying to load the next animation frame but then I interrupted it with button spamming? 

Day 25
Just more basic care til’ tomorrow when Kuchipatchi will grow. I want a ShimaShimatchi because the sprite for him on mine are different than the ones I’ve seen online iirc. If this is correct, then that means I have an earlier version of the QPet software! 
I noticed that the QPet's clock is slow. Every time I put fresh batteries in it I always notice this. Right now it is 8:59 but on the QPet it slowed down to 8:53 after 3-ish days or so.

This isn’t the first bootleg toy I’ve had problems with. A fake Gyaoppi I’d like to briefly cover runs too fast. One week I had set the time 20 minutes behind on accident, but within a week it was almost 2 hours ahead of real time. Moral of the story: Don’t trust bootleg toys to keep the time...

Day 25
Kuchipatchi turned into Mametchi. It would take another week to attempt getting ShimaShimatchi, so I’ll take the batteries out for now. I also went ahead and reset the Touma Pet. I hope it has a save feature 😬 This will be the last post for a while. Later in June, I’ll be back for more and eventually the Nana Moon, even if it technically isn't bootleg. After that, I’ll be out of bootlegs. 

Oh, and one last thing. Remember how I said the QPet has little icons based on Chinese holidays? Here's what happens when the date is set to 7/1:

IMG-6209.jpg

Silly M&D, we didn’t need to be reminded that this was a Chinese bootleg.

      If all else fails just use a tag to denote if you want others to post in your log (COMMENTS OK) or if you want NO COMMENTS  - some members like to keep their logs clear so that the flow of evolution and care info can be read quickly and easily.
      If you see a fellow member has chosen NO COMMENTS please respect their preference and don't post in their log.
      Instead you can send them a PM with any questions.

      Prologue/Day 0: June 16, Sunday
      I attend Tokyo Toy Show's final public day and check out the Bandai booth, which has all mainline Tamagotchi releases on display, organized chronologically. I see the Devilgotchi, and realize that despite owning an Angel back in the 90's, I know very little about its demonic counterpart.

      I am intrigued by the package's promise of late night shenanigans, and look it up on Yahoo! Auctions assuming it can't run for much more than any other used classic era Tama. 
      I am horrendously mistaken.
      This toy is WAY too expensive for frivolous curiosity! 
      Why do I want one, anyway? It's no secret I'm stressed about an upcoming interview, and looking for any way to distract myself from anxiety. Sure, I could just pop some fresh LR-44s in any of my P1s or 2s and call it a day, but if I'm gonna impulsively raise a Tamagotchi for the first time in 5 years or so, I want something new, darn it! 
      Late night, I do more research to try and learn more about the Devilgotchi, see if there's another way to play. Then, I discover the old 2006 Tamagotchi Monster APK... 
      Now, I'm not usually one for installing questionable software on my phone, but if I'm gonna do something weird, what better than a digital devil alien from yesteryear? I install the APK and bridge software that allows me to run the ancient app on my Galaxy S9, and around 2:30 AM, DeviZukitchi is spawned from the depths of the Tamagotchi underworld...and promptly hits the hay. 

      Fair enough.

      So in a recent eBay search, I won a bid for an Angelgotchi, and a half hour ago it came in the mail and I opened it up!
      My sweet little Angelgotchi hatched and after a quick google search about how it works, how it’s different from other Tamagotchis I’ve used, and whatnot.
      So, as most Tamagotchis do, my lil Angel was hungry and wanted to play! It’s so cute how the “meal” is a pie! Lucky.
      The game really threw me for a curve. I was used to the *concept*, like of jumping over obstacles thanks to the V1, but I don’t know what happened. I was kinda struggling with it but I’m getting there! I’m excited, I’ve heard lots of good things about the Angelgotchi and I can’t wait to try myself

      So I've recently gotten the Gudetama Tamagotchi. It's a pretty clever idea- I had heard of Gudetama before and seen lots of memes with him (her? them?). Anywho. I found one on ebay, bought it, and it arrived in the mail today! Upon opening it, I was surprised to see how small it was. So different from the rest of mine- it reminded me a lot of the chibi tamagotchi. I started it up at 2:26pm- so for me, it's been going for about two hours. When it first hatched, I saw it had a bonnet! So cute!
      It is a lot easier than raising any other Tamagotchi I've owned. There are two options, food and game. The game is pretty easy and reminds me of the P1/P2 game where you'd have to guess which way the character would go- for this one, you guess which egg Gudetama is in.
      It's throwing me for a learning curve that there aren't any meters to check [hungry/happy hearts]. I've already over-fed it a lot!! It loves its soy sauce. And seeing the C-click reaction is puzzling. It says "burp burp"... what does it mean?! Well, maybe in time I'll figure out. Until then, Gudetama and I are just chilling, him being his adorable self

      Yes, that’s how JD spelled it. 
      The Tamagotohi is a fake Color Tama that came out a year after the real one (so, 2009). It has a built in FM radio, IR communication like real Tamagotchis, and photos can be transferred via USB to use it as a digital photo frame. 
      The only known screenshot was posted here on TamaTalk a few years ago, but the link provided there leads to a blank page with no archives.
      https://www.tamatalk.com/IB/topic/189867-tamagotchi-colour-fake/

      A reserve image search revealed that it had originally been shared to another Tamagotchi forum back in 2009. Google Translated English version here.


      Fun facts- The Tamagotohi originally retailed for $6 USD adjusted for today. If you look closely on the box, it shows drawings of the different characters.
      User MadamBoss of Tamagochy shared a photo of the toy and box, confirming something: this was made by JiDan. Look at how the model number has “JD” before it. This is how every virtual pet by JiDan (under their original name) is stylized:
      Ex)
      Interestingly, the Touma Pet (a recent fake Color by M&D) has a similar model number, only this time it has “OK” before it. (Plus it uses stuff from A-Watch and QPet Quolor.) Where have we seen that before? Oh yeah! Are M&D, OK, and JD related? Who knows. If so, a Bootleg Tamagotchi conspiracy would prove that reality truly is stranger than fiction.
      The gist: Color Tama fakes are nothing new. And, the Handwarmer Pedometer Handwarmer Powerbank Tamagotchi is the tip of the iceberg for mutant bootlegs.
      At the moment, there are no known videos, other photos, or old listings. The lack of any info makes it more illusive than even the Tamagezi. This can be considered “lost,” as there is no actual documentation left online. With that being said, if anyone here has more things like pictures or one of these perplexing devices on hand, it would be much appreciated if you could help solve the mysteries surrounding this strange bootleg.
