tamaninjacat's Tamagotchi Corner

Recommended Posts

It's a new Tama log!:ichigotchi: I've been getting a wee bit bored with Tamagotchis as of late, so I think keeping a log will help continue my interest. Without further ado, it's time to meet the tamas.

Fairy ON

First up we have the twins, Hilda and Marianne, on the Fairy ON.


It's been a bit since I've had twins, so I'm pretty excited for this generation. I don't know about anyone else, but I almost always end up with adult identical twins which is a little disappointing... I enjoy seeing variety in twins and it almost never happens for me (and if it does the differences are very minimal). Hopefully these two will have a little more variety when they grow up. Anyway, after an hour of care, they evolved! It was time for them their mother to leave the nest.


I don't know why she's say's "we' when she's moving out because her husband has already been gone at this point.:P This always happens when you marry through the app. It's kind of funny to imagine your Tama's spouse waiting for your Tama to hurry up and finish raising the kids while they're sitting comfortably in their future home. I guess that's just the struggles of Tama parenthood.¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 


I've also started my V4 because I was inspired by a recent thread made by Maria&Co. 

My V4 has also been cursed with Meme family genes, so I want to see if I can change that. One thing we discussed in the thread was marriage through connection, but I unfortunately won't be able to take this approach. For some reason my V4 lost the ability to connect years ago and, despite my best efforts, I've never been able to fix it. So we'll just use the good old care miss method and see if that does anything for us. Here's our first subject, Ame.


You can really see how old and beat up my V4 is when the picture is zoomed in like this...

Hopefully he will be the first to break the chain, but his mom was a Makiko... the Meme genes are strong with this one. 


Aaaannnnddd we're already off to a bad start. Puchitchi is the MOST likely to evolve into the Meme family out of all four of the toddlers. I would say that I'll just take perfect care of him to see if I get a Mame teen, but it's Sunday and I slept in, so his stats have already dropped.:( Now I have two options, go with a Meme adult with kindness or intelligence points and marry him to a Kuchi or Mame adult respectively; or I can raise him into Universal adult and marry him to a Kuchi adult and see what that does. No matter what, I'll still love little Ame.:wub:


Now it's time to introduce, Gus. I might not always do an update for Gus though because he's actually 356 Tama years old! (He was, however, paused for a collective 98 days.) There's not many new things that happen once you're that age... He is by far my longest living Tama (my last record was Jules on the V4.5, 137 Tama years).


Again due to the zoomed in picture, you can see how nasty my P's faceplate has gotten over the years... 

He's a police officer! Also, he has what I like to call "the Ichigotchi charm of longevity". Every Tama I've selected to be my longest living has worn this charm. Let's hope it continues to serve him well.:D 

Anyway, that's all I've got for this post. Tune in next time to see Hilda, Marianne, and Ame evolve!

Puchitchi actually normally evolves into a Mame teen, as long as it's given perfect care (I think... works for me at least :P)

Anyway, this is a very nice log! Reading all these logs about the ON kind of makes me wish I had one too, but they're a bit expensive for my tastes :P It's nice to see I've inspired someone else to start running a V4 again ^_^ (also -- my black spark V4 is pretty old and in kind of rough condition too :o

Maybe I should start a log on the site...

Puchitchi and Mizutamatchi both consistently evolve into Meme teens for me even though the are capable of evolving into different families.:P Hopefully it's not too late for Ame to switch into the Mame family, but he may already have a care miss from this morning.:( 

I got my V4 from a yard sale like 6 or 7 years ago, so I was surprised that it even still worked! Some of the damage is from the previous owner, but a good amount is from me too (like that giant scratch on the screen...). And in case you're wondering, the connection issues are not from the previous owner. It was able to connect for a couple of years after I got it, so I'm not sure what happened. I do wonder if it's because my brother spilled a tiny amount of milk on it years ago and didn't tell me... I only found out that he did that a few months ago when I had to open and clean my V4 because the buttons had gotten very sticky. I was telling him how strange it was that this was happening and he spilled the beans. I wasn't mad or anything, but that would explain some things (and maybe explain why one of my Music Stars almost completely busted around the same time this story takes place...).

Also, I think starting a log would be a great idea! I love seeing what people are up to with their tamas.^_^

You got me, I'm a big Fire Emblem fan!^_^ Other names I've used include Celica, Chrom, Saizo, and Selkie, just to name a few. I haven't finished Three Houses yet, but the Golden Deer are my favorites (and Hilda is a powerhouse). I don't think I'm doing the classroom part right, but I'm trying my best to figure it out.:P

Fairy ON

Speaking of Hilda and Marianne, they evolved this morning!


They've inherited their mom's fruit and their dad's fancy ribbons. Speaking of their dad, I noticed something odd when I went onto the app yesterday.


He's definitely pink here...


...but he wasn't pink when my last Tama married him. I assume the other person said yes to my proposal, but rejected the egg on their end and then changed their color. It's just strange to me that the family tree on the app updated even though I never interacted with them after that. Marianne has been pink since she was a toddler though... coincidence? Maybe, but I think it would be funny if Hilda took after her father's original color and Marianne just so happened to take after his new one. It would have made way more sense for Hilda to have turned pink due to her namesake, but oh well...


@Maria&Co. must have bless Ame's genes because...


HE EVOLVED INTO A MAME TEEN!🙌 I swear I rarely have have this kind of luck with Puchitchi, but it's a welcomed surprise. Now apparently, some people have had their teens switch families. It's super unlikely and what I can only assume is from bad luck at that point, but I'm going to be cautious and evolve him into a Mametchi. Only the most Mame of the Mame family bloodline is allowed around here.


In order to achieve that goal, I've enrolled him in Mr. Turtlepedia's class. Maybe I'll even evolve him into Tensaitchi, but I make no promises there.:rolleyes:

And that's all for now! I've got no Gus updates, he's just chillin'. Tomorrow the twins should evolve and I'll likely marry them when that happens. I used to keep my M!x/Meets/ON characters for a little after they evolved, but now I prefer to marry them off ASAP to see the next cute characters I get.:P See you all soon.~

I don't think that can happen on the V4 (besides Universals I mean, as that's intended), but it's definitely possible on the V4.5; on that version a teen switches families with 151 or more points in certain skills. For it to happen on the V4 must be the result of some kind of glitch or something :huh:

Ohhh that's probably what it was. I saw a topic on the forum years ago about a teen evolving into the wrong family, but the discussion must of been about a V4.5 and not a V4 like I thought it was. I do find it interesting that the V4.5 allows you to switch families like that though. It's much more merciful that the V4...:P


Fairy ON


The twins evolved this morning! I was hoping they would inherit their father's Mimitchi body shape, but I hadn't considered how strange a "bald" Mimitchi looks. Of course, they also became identical twins like I said they would... I don't mind too much, but I would love for a little diversity when raising twins. 


Like look at these guys I found! They look completely different and yet very much related! I feel like I'm being too harsh on my girls, but sometimes you just want to complain about things outside of your control.:P 


More importantly though, Hilda got married! She married an NPC Tama because I want her child to inherit that Coffretchi hair, but also maintain the Mimitchi body type. I tried to marry her to someone else that would keep the Mimitchi body type in my gene pool...


...but she was rejected. It all turned out fine in the end because if Hilda wasn't rejected, then we never would have met...


Delilah! We went through the typical baby hour stuff until she evolved.


She looks exactly like her mom and aunt did at her age.:wub:


Not much going on with Ame today. I accidentally gave him a care miss because I didn't hear his numerous cries for attention despite the fact that he was right next to me the entire morning. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Not to worry, he's still on track to become a Mametchi even with my shortcomings in caring for him. I believe he's due to evolve tomorrow, but it's been so long since I've ran my V4 that I'm having a hard time remembering. We'll just have to see what happens...:newmametchi:

As per the usual, there's no Gus update. Maybe I should tell you guys something about him anyway?

Gus fact :newmametchi:: Gus can survive 5-6 hours without any care as long as his stats are full beforehand. This means I've gotten a little lazy and risky by not really paying attention to him until noon or one' o'clock in the afternoon. It hasn't gone south yet, but I should really be more careful with my guy. 

That's all for today! See you guys next time.^_^

I'm back! Sorry for not posting yesterday, but now I've got a lot to report on.

Fairy ON

Delilah evolved into a teen yesterday, but I forgot take a picture of her.-_- I do keep a small art book of my Tamagotchi evolutions, so I guess this is the next best thing:


The colored in parts were blue and the uncolored parts were pastel yellow. Her scarf also went across her neck (like Kuromametchi's scarf), but I forgot to draw that in. Today she evolved again into...


... a beautiful adult! I didn't get the hair or body type I was hoping for, but I'm happy with the results nonetheless. I wasn't intending on getting her married when I went onto the app today, but I saw the cutest Tama and I had to take my chance...



They said yes! (Delilah also has an unnamed and unmentioned Tamapet. Whoops.) I've been wanting Shinobinyatchi's genes for awhile, but my Tamas always get rejected by people that have them.:P Delilah returned from the app with an adorable baby...


boy! I've been listening to the MBMBaM podcast lately, so I named the baby Griffin.^_^ An hour later, Griffin evolved!


I know that this is subject to change, but I'm happy he's got his father's hair! That little fruit has been pretty persistent for the past few generations, so hopefully he breaks the cycle.

I've also got an update on the app family tree thing. I think mine might be glitched because...


there's no way this Tama got their colors changed. They were an NPC and I saw them wandering around the app just today. I'm not sure why my family tree is changing the colors of my Tama's spouses, but it seems harmless enough. 



Mission accomplished.B):newmametchi: Ame evolved into a Mametchi yesterday! It's been five generations since I've had a non-Meme family adult, so I'm very happy. He was being offered a job earlier today, but I put off accepting it until later because I wanted to catch the results on camera. I went back to the mailbox later and the offer was no longer there, so now we have to wait.:P Ame will just diligently study until then:


And that's all for today! I think Ame should be getting married tomorrow? I'm still rusty on V4 growth. At least we know for sure that Griffin will be evolving.:P Before you leave, I've got another:

Gus Fact :newmametchi:: Gus has a Yumecantchi Tamapet. I'm always coming up with names for her, but I never write any of them down. She's basically the frog from Over the Garden Wall at this point. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Thanks for reading.^_^

Have I really not made an update since Thursday? This is going to be one big update...😓

Fairy ON

Griffin became a teenager on Friday.


He then evolved into an adult yesterday, but I forgot to take pictures again. Luckily, you can see what he looks like in his wedding photos from today. I attempted to regain those Mimitchi genes, but Griffin was met with rejection when I did.


With Mimitchi genes out of the question, I tried for Shinobinyatchi genes again.


His proposal was accepted! The egg he brought home hatched into...


...twin baby boys! Keeping with the MBMBaM naming theme, I've named these two Travis and Justin. After an hour, they evolved into toddlers.


They look just like their father did.:wub: Also, this is off topic, but I saw these super cute twins on the app:


They reminded me of Kunoitchi! Maybe this should be the new goal for my gene pool...:gozarutchi:


Ame got a job at the hospital early on Friday.


Then yesterday, Ame got married to a Pukatchi.


They gave birth to a baby...


...boy! I decided to name him, Clyde. The boy wasn't named until Ame left him earlier today. 


I was watching the Super Bowl with my dad and anticipating a Budweiser commercial that would feature Clydesdales. Not only did their commercial not feature the horses, but the 49'ers also lost. Today was not a good day for me...:P Well, that's not entirely true because Clyde evolved into a Mohitamatchi!


I haven't had a Mohitamatchi in forever! Now I've just got to take perfect care of him to see if that will cause him to evolve into a Kuchi teen. I'm nervous that he'll become a Meme family teen instead, but we'll just have to see what happens.


Whhhaaatttt???? Actual Gus news??? Yup! His batteries ran out yesterday and I replaced them today. Exciting stuff, I know. That's all for recent Gus news, but I would like to take this time to show off his spaceship house.


(Feat. his Tamapet) I remodeled his house awhile back, but I forgot that the outside changes if you match all the rooms. Just thought you guys might like to actually see something from Gus for once.:newmametchi:

That's all for now! Sorry for the big post, but a lot can happen in three days. I'll try to keep my posts more frequent, but I make no promises.:P

So much for more frequent updates.:P 

Fairy ON

Travis and Justin evolved into teenagers on Monday.


They evolved into adults yesterday.


They look almost exactly like their grandma! The only difference is in the eyes. As for marriage, I've been looking all over the app with no luck. Travis did accept a proposal from someone, but we didn't take home an egg.


Who am I to deny someone of these cute genes?:wub: I'm going to keep looking today, but I won't update on their marriage until tomorrow.



challenge warning GIF


A KUCHI TEEN!:lol: It's been such a long time since I've had a Kuchi family member. We celebrated by visiting a gene.



Even more good news!:D Clyde should be evolving into a Kuchipatchi later this evening since I've been keeping his kindness points high. I enrolled him in Mr. Canvas' class to help with this goal.





Nani?! Trying to run away, on his birthday of all days! I was doing a water change on my fish tank when he called, but I didn't think he was going to do this... I offer his favorite snack as a token of my apology. 


Now let's celebrate!


Happy birthday buddy!🎉 I hope we'll be celebrating many, many more!:newmametchi:

Hey it's ya girl, back from hiatus. I took a little bit of a break from running Tamas (except for Gus), but I'm back into it now. Tonight's update will be to catch everyone up on what happened while we were gone. I've got good news and bad news so, without further ado, let's get into it.

Fairy ON

This is the one I have the MOST to update on. I looked at my last post to get a refresher and I hadn't even gotten to Justin's wedding yet.:o 


He settled down with a cute little pumpkin girl! He then brought home the lovely little boy known as Lumalee. Just to make sure this post isn't incredibly picture heavy, I'll just skip to his adult form and wedding.


He then brought home a baby girl named Rosalina! Here's her adult form and marriage.


My break began after her wedding, so I decided to stop running the ON for now. The last thing I want to show you guys that involves the ON is me finding one of Lumalee's half siblings in the wild. The only reason I found them is because I thought they looked awfully familiar. 



Clyde was offered a job soon after evolving and he got married shortly after that. He had a sweet baby boy! Unfortunately, things went very wrong after that. I was busy eating breakfast with my family on Sunday and I didn't notice he needed me. He and his son passed away that morning.-_- R.I.P. My wonderful boys.:wub:


After that my V4 just sat on my desk waiting for me to try again. You'll have to wait and see what happens~;)


After putting my ON away and leaving my V4 in limbo, it was just me and Gus for a week. I will admit that I got a little lazy and fed him WAY more snacks than usual. He may or may not finally be 99lbs...:rolleyes: 

Also, I had a big scare with my P's itself the other day! Our house has a bit of a rodent problem and one day we noticed the dinning room vent open with insulation strewn about. An exterminator is taking care of the problem, but we've been keeping stone slabs over our floor vents to make sure it doesn't happen again. It only happened the one time in the dinning room, but we've still put a slab in just about every room. This brings us to the scare.  

I was trying to grab Gus off of my desk the other day, but I dropped him by mistake. This wouldn't have been so bad if my vent wasn't right next to my desk. Y'all might know where this is going... I dropped my P's directly on the stone slab. It made and awful whack sound and it bounced around my carpet quite a bit. My stomach was in knots when I went to retrieve it but everything was surprisingly still working! I even shook it next to my ear to see if anything came loose and I didn't hear anything. Luckily it landed on its back because if it had landed on its screen, then everything would have gone way worse. With that said, the device itself does have some scars now.


At least it's not broken. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

That's all for getting caught up! I only started running my Tamas again today, but I'd rather devote a new post to them tomorrow. See you then!^_^ 

Edited by tamaninjacat
I meant to show Rosalina's adult form and not her baby picture.

After today we'll be completely caught up on my Tamas growth! Let's start with:


If you've been keeping up with the V4 family group thread, then you may already know who I'm about to introduce. I said one last goodbye to Clyde and restarted the V4. I was greeted by an egg that promptly hatched into a baby girl that I named Guava. She evolved into a Mizutamatchi after an hour. I've given her four care misses today, three from hunger and one from happiness, just like @Maria&Co. did for her Mizutamatchi. Since then I've been keeping her stats very full and I've been avoiding the mailbox. She's also got four bars for training, so I think we're safe from Universal teens. Hopefully she'll evolve into a Kuchi family teen.^_^


iD L 15th Anniversary

I started my iD L up at the same time as my V4 and I was greeted by a sweet baby Marutchi. I named her Byleth (been playing a lot of SSBU lately) and took care of her for an hour until she evolved into Kusatchi. I've avoided giving her any care misses today, so she should evolve into the best care teen. I try to avoid growth spoilers when I can, but I always refer to a chart when my Tama becomes a teen. Avoiding repeat adult characters is my main goal.:P Since I started running her late last night, she won't be evolving into a teenager until tomorrow. 



So I was just going to start running my V4 and iD L, but I was playing Mario Kart with my dad earlier when I saw this kart. I don't know why, but I really wanted to run my Morino again after seeing it. I named him Biddybud to follow his Mario/bug origins. Not much has happened since then because the Morino remains a baby for a full day. If I remember correctly, the Morino is actually pretty low maintenance overall (except for the cocoon stage), so I think I should have an easy enough time with it.


He's got an adorable cry for attention!

As per the usual, there's no Gus news. There should be lots of evolutions happening tomorrow so stay tuned for that.^_^

...You thought I was going on another hiatus, didn't you? Don't worry, I (probably) won't be doing that again anytime soon. Lots has happened to the Tamas the past few days so let's talk about that.


I was expecting to see Guava evolve into a Kuchi teen after giving her four care misses, but I was instead greeted by a Ichigotchi.:ichigotchi: (No pictures of her teen form because I'm forgetful.¯\_(ツ)_/¯)  Is it because I did something wrong or is it because she's a first gen Tamagotchi? I don't mind too much because I love all my Tama children~ Although I hope her child is also a Mizutamatchi so I can try again... Anyway, today she evolved into a Memetchi! Since Ame and Clyde were a Mametchi and Kuchipatchi respectively, I figured I would complete the trio by raising Guava into a Memetchi. :newmametchi::lol::)


iD L 15th Anniversary

Byleth evolved into a Morutchi on Monday and into a Lovelitchi yesterday. (No pictures of her teen form either. Monday was a forgetful day for me.:P) I took her to TAMAX-TV shortly after she evolved and she changed into her Gotchiman Lovelin alter ego. It's been awhile since I've raised a Lovelitchi on any of my Tamas, so I was happy to see her again. I also got three of her happy stamps right away (Lovelitchi's favorites were pretty predictable), so now we're just waiting for her fourth. 



Biddybud evolved into a Imotchi on Monday and entered his cocoon stage today. I tried to raise his weight as much as possible because I've heard that helps them survive the cocoon stage better. I'm keeping the heat up as well because I haven't raised too many characters from the "hot" side of the growth chart. He should be exiting his cocoon sometime tomorrow, but that might be delayed because I will be pausing him before bed tonight. I think it's a little unfair that the temperature can still change while you're sleeping.:P 


Do I have to say that there's no Gus news or do y'all know the drill by now?:newmametchi: We should be seeing some marriages and babies soon, so I'll see you then!^_^

Guava got a job at a flower shop shortly after I posted on Wednesday. I was expecting her to get married later today, but the matchmaker just won't show up. In fact, I wrote up this entire post hours ago and held off on posting it because I was waiting for her to get married. So not much is going on with Guava today.:P


iD L 15th Anniversary

Yesterday Byleth met the love of her life and she left me with a sweet baby boy. I named him Finnbar (after my betta fish) and he quickly evolved into a Daiyatchi. I've always found it kind of disorienting that a lot of past teen/adult characters were used as toddlers on the 15th Anniversary (see Byleth having been a Kusatchi). Even more confusing still, Finnbar evolved into a Kujakutchi who is Daiyatchi's counterpart on the V4.5. It just makes no sense.:P



Biddybud stayed in his cocoon longer than he should have because of the nighttime pausing. I was worried I might have burned him to death because I kept the heat up really high and forgot to turn it back down, but he finally emerged today! He's a Koganetchi which is a character I've never had before. I forget how to keep a healthy adult on the Morino (I'm pretty sure weight plays a factor), so I'm probably going to have to reeducate myself.



Gus? You've got news today? What's goin' on?


That's so swe-


-or not. Sorry buddy, Finnbar can be a bit of a trouble maker. That faceplate is still so nasty...

Anyway, next time we should be seeing more evolutions and Guava should be getting married tomorrow (for real this time :P). See you then!

What's this? A back-to-back update for the first time in forever! What a surprise...:o


Guava got married to a Minotchi today! I'm still confused as to why the matchmaker wasn't showing up yesterday (she was 6), but she found love in her own time.:wub: As a result, she had an adorable baby boy. They've just been hanging out since then. I might have Guava leave tomorrow, but she will definitely be out of the nest by Monday.


iD L 15th Anniversary

Finnbar evolved into a Otogitchi today! Oddly enough, that happens to be what his father was. An interesting coincidence to say the least. Just like his mother, finding his three happy stamps was no problem at all. Now we're just waiting for that final stamp again...


That's all for today! Nothing is going on with Gus or Biddybud, so there really isn't much to say today. I probably won't be updating again until Guava and Finnbar both leave me with their children, so the next post will have a lot more going on. See you then!

I decided to keep Guava with me all Sunday, so she didn't leave until today. I was left with a crying baby boy who I named Spyro. After an hour he evolved into a Mizutamatchi! Now I can try again at raising a Kuchi teen from a Mizutamatchi. I'm going to give him more care mistakes (3 hungry and 2 happiness) and I plan on missing a training call. Hopefully this will tell us what we want to know about toddler evolution.


             I think I'm seeing double...

iD L 15th Anniversary

Finnbar got his final happy stamp today, so it was time for him to get married. However, when I tried to go to the matchmaker, it was still locked. He was born last Thursday, so he's definitely old enough to get married. His age counter says he's only three when he should be four, so I'm going to assume that's the problem. If he isn't eligible for marriage by tomorrow, I'm probably going to have to reset and download and see if that helps.


Today was another short post because Finnbar didn't get married like I expected him to. Hopefully I'll have more to report on tomorrow, so stay tuned!^_^

      Hello, hello, I'm a long time fan of tamagotchi but a new member to tamatalk! 
      I decided to start a log for the lavender Wonder Garden tamagotchi I just got, which was one part a nostalgia purchase and another part mental health purchase. As silly as it sounds, tamagotchis helped me through depression  and anxiety as a kid. They're very much security blankets to me. 
      However this log won't really record my mental health, just the tamagotchi so don't worry about that.

      Forgive my phone's crummy camera, but I got a baby girl! I've always been more partial to female tamas personally!
      Also yes, that is my personal art! I find tamagotchi's simple designs lend well to being good warm up sketches so expect seeing some doodles my tamas now and then.

      So this morning my Hashizoutchi died at 18 years old.

      It was the longest that I've managed to keep a Tamagotchi ever as far as I can remember. It was on the Tamagotchi Game Boy game, on which I'm playing what I decided to label the "PoorBoy's Tamagotchi". The rules are that you can only take care of your Tamagotchi if the in-game clock matches your real-life clock. I've made a post about it here:

      Upon its death I was labeled a genius by some stranger aliens who took Venus to their home planet.

      Apparently they have the ability to revive dead Tamagotchi so Venus was revived and made an Honorary Member of... something lol. They dressed him up weidly and that's last time I saw him.

      So as promised, here is my log (@Penguin-keeper) . I'll be covering mostly the 3 Tamagotchi games on Game Boy. I'll be trying to get every character in every game, which I'm sure will keep me occupied for a long time. I'll also mix in some Android virtual pet apps so that the log will hopefully remain fresh and interesting.
      I'm starting with Tamagotchi 1 on GB, since for the time being it's my favourite of the 3 Game Boy games.

      As you can see I've already picked 4 of the eggs, with Venus being the 4th. It's time to hatch that green one which I'll be naming Gaia (I'm uninspiringly naming them after planets, before Venus was Mercury). I wonder what happens when you hatch all the eggs and the last one dies, there has to be a cinematic or something, we'll see.

      So here is Gaia. Since I've been raising Tamagotchis since a very long time and know all the rules, I'm adding myself a new rule to spice things up: for this run, I'm not allowed to check Gaia's stats apart from its age and weight. In real life, your pet or kid doesn't have a hungry and happy meter, you have to guess how it's feeling.
      I've also decided thar Gaia will be a nerd, I'm only going to give it Math training. The only exercise it will be doing will be to maintain its weight. We'll see how it'll grow up and how long it'll live with this education.
      I think that's all for today, I'll try to post everyday if my schedule allows.

      At this point for me, it's less of a tradition to keep a log than it is to start one. Half of the posts on Tamatalk are just going to be all my unfinished logs! ;A; But not this time, my dear readers. For I have dug out a Tamagotchi version that is very special to me, and with... a lot of hesitation, actually, have started it up for the first time in what feels like forever!
      As the title may give away, I am running (and logging!) my pink iD L! Back when I first joined Tamatalk, these were very popular, and also everywhere unlike the listings you see today. I got both my iD Ls - the aforementioned pink version and my now-rare Princess Spacey ver - back in 2013 for less than $100 each, and I'm glad I did because nowadays, oh boy do you have to sell your own soul to get your hands on one mint in box.
      Of course, this comes with its own issues - being that I've had these for seven years now, they've accumulated a ton of scratches, which is where most of my hesitation comes from. For those who aren't in the know, colour Tamagotchis - particularly their screens - are highly prone to scratches if you're not careful, and they can show up real easily on the screen as these annoying rainbow-like textures. My 4U and m!xs have managed to stay safe, luckily, but my iD Ls and my precious little P's have not had the same luck nor fortune. And don't even get me started on their front faceplates - I'd be able to actually afford a mint iD L with the amount of scratches they have.
      However, it is all cosmetic in the end. And it's not like I'm ever getting a new iD L unless I risk it for a used version, so I may as well take you all down with me. I've got a Pac-Man Anniversary Mini/Nano in the mail right now as we speak, so with a little patience I'll hopefully be able to log it soon!  Let's begin!
      iD L
      I put some new batteries in a few days ago, and was welcomed by a little Kingyobotchi! For those not in the know, they are the best-care female toddler character on the iD L. I also discovered that my iD L was on its 3rd generation last time I played it - I had previously raised a Kikitchi and an Agetchi, respectively, both of which are bad-care adult characters.
      Determined to take good care of my next Tamagotchi, I proceeded to get the next highest-care teenager, Painaputchi - and didn't look at a growth chart, which is extremely rare for me! I ended up raising an adorable little Chamametchi:

      I forgot how photogenic the iD L was. You can't even see any of the scratches on it's screen!
      (While writing this, I realized I hadn't given Chamametchi a name yet! I searched up the nearest random name generator, and blessed her with the title of London.)
      While Chamametchi isn't the... highest care character out there, she's still very cute (and not a teen, strangely). I decided to go for her Tamatomo Stamps - for those who don't have an iD L, every adult 'gotchi has three special likes that cause them to do a cute little animation + give you what's dubbed a Tamatomo Stamp. You earn the last Tamatomo stamp by having your adult-stage Tamagotchi for 72 hours (or, at least 5 years old, if I recall correctly). You can earn any Tamatomo Stamp in any order, and they're a fun little incentive to spend more time with your tama! Plus, it also gets them stamped in the memory book (which is how I discovered the previous tamas I raised), as well as a bonus cutscene when they get married. 
      Anyway, I decided to go for London's Tamatomo Stamps straight away! We decided to head to the park, as the market was currently being held:

      It's Kuchipatchi's mum! What she's doing here, I have no idea.
      Items at the market are usually marked down by 30%, so I wanted to get a good deal. I accidentally ended up leaving by way of the C button with London in tow.

      It was raining outside when I took this photo! Who knew Tamagotchi Planet had the same weather cycles... and timezone... wait a second.
      We decided to visit again later - for now, it was off to the TamaDepa to get something I thought London would like. The hunt for her Tamatomo stamps was on! I rarely search for these without consulting a guide, so there was an exciting factor to our adventure.
      I quickly swept into the accessories aisle, and bought London a pair of cat ears! It was time for the moment of truth...
      ...I mean, she's still happy at least?
      Unfortunately, it was not meant to be. If your Tamagotchi's latest item/accessory/food is Tamatomo-worthy, they'd usually start jumping high in the air with hearts everywhere! But London was quite mellow. She still defied gravity in her celebration, though.
      I didn't want to stop there, however - maybe an outfit was what London was looking for! We went back to the market again, as outfits can be super expensive:
      It's Makiko's mum! ...I just remembered that Makiko's name doesn't end in 'tchi'.
      I was running low on money, so we sold off the Tamamori Tree item I got out of the toy seed I planted in London's backyard yesterday. Don't ask.
      Anyway, we had enough money to buy London a lovely red kimono:
      I forgot how fun it was to dress up your tamas on the iD L...
      And thus the moment of truth began once again!

      Guess what happened next.
      ...And yet it also was not meant to be! Not only had I spent a ton of gotchi points on two outfits that weren't Tamatomo-worthy, now London looked like a weird anime character. She didn't seem to mind though.

      One last photo before the post gets too big...
      I decided to stop our Tamatomo hunting there for now. I took London to the different locations in the food menu, but none of the meals and snacks there seemed to activate a Tamatomo Stamp... not even the sweetest treats around! ...That, and it ended with me accidentally discovering Chamametchi's least favorite food. By then my pockets were totally empty. I'm sure I'm missing something here... maybe I should be more open to London's tastes and stop assuming that all she likes is pink stuff just by the colour of her ears? The irony is real.
      Next post: more stamp hunting! Meeting a Tama-pet at the park enough times to create a bond with them and take them home... I missed those guys on the 4U and m!x, they were useless but I loved them anyway!

      Hey guys!
      I've been thinking of getting a tama for a long time now, and one time I just felt like getting a knockoff. Just to see how vpets are like.
      But, speculations..
      I mean, why not just get a real one? They're much better than the knockoffs anyway!
      Can you guys please help me?

      I should've started this log earlier, but whatever... But at least I have a name for it now! 
      Seeing as I'm still figuring this log out, the format might switch between a normal log and a roleplay sort of log (the tama and me talking to eachother).
      Anyways, I'm on my 23rd gen of tamas now. But meet our current tama, Jazz! 

      Nothing much happened, mostly because Jazz is a little baby and you can't really do much with them.
      Jazz: Hey!
      That's not really an insult. Plus, your only a baby for, like, an hour. 
      Jazz: I guess.. But.. That doesn't mean I have to like it!
      I guess not. 
      Jazz ate a lot, and would occasionally play with his bear. Which makes me wonder, where does the toy bear go once your tama becomes a child? You can't see it in the items, but what happens to it?
      Jazz: What?
      For a while, Jazz watched YouTube with me and hopped around his room until he was tired and took a lil nap.

      Once upon a time, in the year 2045... 
      Tamagotchis were starting to get boring in the world, and Bandai was starting to get desperate. They had to create a new Tamagotchi. One that would get everyone into the craze again.
      So, they created the UltraTama.
      A Tamagotchi that had all  of the previous Tamagotchi model features in one.
      When they released it, it was a megahit. People absolutely loved them.
      There was a girl named Hana who was enjoying her new UltraTama very much. She brought it everywhere, and had fun connecting her device with other people's UltraTamas.
