I finally caved and got a 20th anniv Digimon. I've been curious about Digimon for a good while now, and a lot of threads asking how to get into it recommended trying this one out.
Do y'all have any resources for a first-time owner? General guides, growth charts, etc. I figured this topic would be better suited than the general tama help one, but if need be y'all can move it.
Fun stuff not entirely related to my question: the only Digimon I remember from when I was a kid is Patamon. He'll probably always be my favorite because of that alone. :]
I never even got into it then, I just had a friend who liked it.
Hey, I can't tell if this is a real Dinkie Dino or not? The seller SAYS they were never released and they were given as arcade prizes but like- it's got the digimon like- rectangle casing? Not even the normal Dinkie casing?
Here it is and an image for the sake of, if it gets taken down or whatever so others can see it in the future I guess (I see a lot of posts where ppl have linked eBay listings and theyre taken down so I can't tell if what I'm looking at is a fake or not)
The seller also has a variety of other colors too. Is it- real? I don't... I mean the PACKAGING looks legit but I don't, know much when it comes to this stuff so...
Anyone know if it's legit and what it is compared to a normal Dinkie Dino?
So, in addition to my old tamagotchis, I also had an original digimon. I never got as into it as I did my tama, but I haven't been able to found it as I've scrounged around my house during my return to the fandom. Just curious if there are other digivice fans out there among the tamagotchi fandom, and if so, what do you guys consider the best ones? I've seen a lot of people singing praises of the Burst (IG burst?) but it seems those are either only in Japanese or ludicrously expensive.
But yeah, either way, what have I missed in the last 20 years?

For those of you who know about the classic Tamagotchis, you'll notice that they're not as pink and sparkly and stuff as the current ones. Bandai originally designed Tamagotchi for both genders, then said that Tamagotchi was "more suitable for girls" as a "practice for nurturing children" and designed Digimon for boys. Although I'm a female, I am a dog so I don't really know aboot this, but I think that both of these pets are perfectly fine for both genders, and I'm kind of mad at Nintendo for assuming that only boys play Pokémon (of course the professors asking your gender is pretty weird). Also, don't you think that having something that regularly dies or leaves isn't a very good "practice for nurturing children"?
Sorry that this is so long.
For those of you who don't know, DMPC (Digimon PC) is a program that allows you to run a virtual pet in the form of a Digimon on your computer. It is reminiscent of the real Digimon virtual pets, though it isn't quite the same. Features include:
-Choosing a specific Digimon family to raise (ex. Deep Savers)
-Playing mini-games which also equal as training to raise your Digimon in specific ways that lead to different evolutions
-An online battle function that allows you to battle with other users over the internet via a Hamatchi server
-Care taking features such as feeding and cleaning after it
-And in DMPC Pro, a coliseum mode that serves as sort of an in-game battle function (it isn't that great honestly .-.)
So, the reason I am posting about this program is because the number of people who are using the program are fading away. Not many people are still interested in virtual pets, or Digimon for that matter. I am hoping that by posting here, more users will start to use the program and enjoy playing it. I would post links to sites where you could look for information, find downloads to the programs and such, but I don't want to unintentionally advertise and end up getting this topic deleted (it happened on another forum I posted on unfortunately..). So, if you want more info on this virtual pet, you can do a Google search, PM me, or something. There are many YouTube videos that show off the game as well.
Now that that is all out of the way, are any of you using DMPC currently? Or are any of you interested in playing it?
EDIT: Here are a few things to take note of:
-DMPC Pro is the latest version, but not as stable as 3.1.3-3
-The bugs that DMPC Pro has include the new Mood system, that isn't in 3.1.3-3, doesn't work very well, and there are some unknown errors that come up from time to time that cause the program to malfunction. This malfunction can sometimes be cause to download a new program unfortunately. However, you Digimon will be safe as they are saved in special .dpmc files automatically every 5 seconds that can be opened with any DMPC program (depending on if you used 3.1.3-3 or Pro, I am not sure if backwards compatibility is a thing).
-DMPC Pro has more Digimon than 3.1.3-3.
-You can customize the color of the outer shell of your DMPC 3.1.3-3, but not Pro.
Also, here are some pictures. The first two are from DMPC Pro, and the others are DMPC 3.1.3-3
I can't find my old log, but still wanted to log again, so I've made a new one, and hope you guys don't mind that. Now onto the logging part of this wonderful space on the internet
I currently am running a P2 and an japanese Angelgotchi:
P2 - Currently a TonMarutchi called Jax.
Angelgotchi - Currently an Obaketchi 2 called Twitch.
They are currently satisfied, and I am hoping to raise an Zukitchi on the P2, and just any other character on the angel
I like getting random characters, cause it surprises me alot.
Jax and Twitch are fond of each other, they lay side by side!
Oh hangon, alot of beeping going on right now - Checks!
Obaketchi 2 just went to sleep, good night buddy!
This is the post for now, have a nice day!
