Marti Benett, The Brains of the Eevee tamagotchi.

Recommended Posts

In a post by Tamagotchi US, Marti Benett said: "Connections and Eevee tamagotchi, please!" In response, Bandai said: "We'll keep it in mind."

This implies Marti was the idea behind the Eevee tamagotchi. Go, Marti! 

it doesn't show the tweet that Marti made, but it's there.

I've moved this to What's On Your Mind?, because it isn't related to the Comments and Rumours section.

Moreover, this person's Twitter posting clearly had nothing to do with the production of the Eevee X Tamagotchi, and the official reply to it is the typical non-committal reply that companies' official social-media presences tend to give when they're not allowed to comment on something.

The Twitter posting was made on January 13th of 2019, whereas the existence of the Eevee X Tamagotchi was revealed via an image leak in early November of 2018, and was then officially confirmed in late November of 2018 - and this doesn't even include the time for the product's development before the reveal.

That still doesn't account for the Twitter posting concerned having been made roughly two months after the product was already revealed and almost two months after pre-orders for it had already taken place. ;) The Twitter posting was made just sixteen days before the product's release - it takes at least six months to manufacture a run of a toy like this once the design phase is complete. The licensing legalities alone would have taken months to sort out before the device was revealed and manufactured.

Unless the Twitter poster somehow time-travelled to early 2018 at the earliest, got a job with Bandai's Japanese arm, and was involved with the product before returning to early 2019 whereupon they commented on it months after it had been announced, then they simply aren't anything to do with the existence of the Eevee X Tamagotchi.

Orrrrr they were simply requesting that an already-announced Japan-only product be brought over. ;)

On top of all this, they don't take fan ideas for Tamagotchis... there is a tonne of legal legwork in doing so, so they certainly wouldn't see one Pokémon fan's idea and go "oh yeah let's do that".

Furthermore, the lisencing issues involved in making an Eevee Tamagotchi in the first place would mean that even if they did use fan ideas, a Pokemon collaboration would likely be quickly thrown out due to the complications involved. The fact that we got a collaboration at all would suggest this release had been planned quite a long time in advance.
