Unfortunately, the original Japanese releases of the Fairy and Magic Meets devices don't handle rechargeable batteries very well - they're glitchy devices as it is, and it appears that rechargeables make this worse. This was apparently amended for the Tamagotchi On.

I just make sure that my batteries get recycled - it's the best that I can do when a device hasn't been designed to handle rechargeable batteries properly. :)

From what I was able to find, it appears that it might increase the chance of the known glitches occurring (in particular there's a good theory about the "Peter Pan Glitch" possibly having a higher chance of occurring due to the faster voltage drop-off of rechargeables, since it's believed that this glitch hinges on the device doing a final save and then failing to notify users that new batteries are needed). With several generations behind me now, and some amusing potential in the gene-pool, I don't want to risk it. :P

Again, though, I gather that this isn't the case for the Tamagotchi On.

I just found a CR2032 that I put aside the last time that I ran one of my retro reissue Tamagotchis - how fortunate! So, I'm running my purple Tamagotchi Original right now - one of the Gen 1 remake units.

I won't be using the clock-pause trick during this run, which I sometimes do if I'm busy, so I'll just go with the flow this time and see what I get. :)

I now have a Kuchitamatchi, and it's been a very uneventful run so far.

One thing that I like about the Gen 1 and Gen 2 remakes is that sickness, misbehaviour, and pooping are not on a set schedule like they were in the originals - they're randomised, so no two runs are the same, and each Tamagotchi feels like more of an individual. I'm pretty sure that this guy is the quietest Tamagotchi that I've ever had. :lol:

For the first time ever, I've failed to raise a Tamagotchi to adulthood. This is the problem with running one when you're busy with other things and haven't run one in a while - you forget that it's there. :P

This is where the low-maintenance Tamagotchis like the Mini and the Nano come into their own, so I'll probably run one of those next, possibly followed by the MGA Penguin, as I have a specific goal that I want to reach with that one, and it's quite low-maintenance itself.

And here's Nyorotchi, which is about the best that I could've expected after the abysmal outcome of my Gen 1 remake run. :lol:

I'm running my Pac-Man Tamagotchi again, now, too!

I think that the close-ups on this version are really cute. :)

I also like how, if you play the games perfectly, you'll see your Tamagotchi alongside Pac-Man, and then get a reproduction of an intermission scene from the original Pac-Man - it's adorable! :D (And if you fail at the games, you'll see and hear the iconic Pac-Man death, and then get a Game Over screen, instead!)

This is the only Nano that I have right now, but it's quickly become one of my all-time favourite releases. :)

Here's a picture of my 20th Anniversary Mini and Pac-Man Nano together. As noted in my previous post, the Pac-Man Tamagotchi is one of my all-time favourites, but so is the 20th Anniversary Tamagotchi Mini - it was the one that got me back into the hobby and brought me to TamaTalk. :)

On the Pac-Man Tamagotchi, Babytchi has evolved into Zuccitchi, who I haven't gotten before on this version (or any other, for that matter). :)

One thing that I find fun about doing these runs when I don't have a lot of time for them, is that I'll see status ailments that I wouldn't normally see when I can give more attention to a device.

To that end, here's Zuccitchi facing the Pac-Man level 256 kill-screen bug!

Over on the 20th Anniversary Tamagotchi Mini...

... Nyorotchi has just evolved into Oyajitichi, which marks the halfway point of this Mini run.

On the Pac-Man Tamagotchi, pooping and sickness are replaced with ghost-attacks and the kill-screen bug, respectively.

This means that if your Tamagotchi falls asleep when a ghost-attack is ongoing, a ghost will fall asleep next to them, ready to resume the chase when the Tamagotchi wakes up. :lol:

      Hi I’m going to restart doing a log after not being here for a year. Anyhoo, I still have the same Tamagotchi white color on :). I’ll update later
    • By iTamannadi
      Hello everyone and welcome to my log! 
      I would like to start this log by saying happy new year to all of you and wish you all the best in 2021. I'm sure last year was rough and we all struggled during the unexpected pandemic so please stay strong and safe because clearly the fight is not over, and I hope that this year is going to be the end of it and a beginning for all good things.  
      As you can see from the title that I'm going to log here about my Magical Witch and the Devilgotchi which I am so excited about and for some reason worried at the same time! I will be logging while I'm exploring these two fascinating toys and yes it took me SO long playing with them for what is going on in world, but the time has finally come and I hope you guys will enjoy this post. 
      So today is the day that I finally decided to put some batteries into my new evil babies and the excitement I felt when I turned them on! 
      Starting with the Devilgotchi:
      when I removed the tab I immediately saw to what appears to be  like a smoke that lasted for a few seconds until the bat showed up as you can see below:

      the bat just kept flying and flashing for about 2-3 minutes and then it evolved to Deviltchi:

      a new Devil is born, without really realizing the consequences of raising a devil has just begun! 😈
      I took sometime figuring out the menu and of course fed him and tried to fill his both Hunger and Happy meter. Right after that I played the 'Catch' game, all you have to do is throw a star for your devil to catch it. You need to collect 4 stars in each round to win. As far as I know the game doesn't end unless you press C or lose but I'm not sure about that. 
       
      I actually spent good amount of time playing the game until... he.. slept during one of the rounds and made a very evil sound, not gonna lie I was caught off guard when I saw him sleeping and then suddenly he started smiling while the screen was inverting. Took me a while when I realized that this is him being mischievous and he wouldn't let me continue playing! By that time he stopped doing it so when I went and checked his Devil Power or DP is increased to 50, that means 10 more points were added because I didn't take any action quicker! 
      After that happened I thought I need to keep an eye on this little devil because I'm not allowing this to happen again, so I did that and made sure that every time he misbehaved and tried to be mischievous I will discipline him which is exactly what happened  
      This is him being naughty and not allowing me checking his health status after he beeped: 

      that was the only time I was able to take a pic of how often and quickly he will pull pranks on me which makes me laugh every time I see him sabotaging the games, not allowing me to check his status or even rejecting the food when he calls for it!  
      That helped me reduce his Devil Power a lot a long with 'Shaking Hands' with him. Randomly he will beep while looking at me and giving me a lovely little evil smirk which basically means that he is being friendly and wants peace:

      Ultimately, all I want to trigger is a 'Good End' and a good looking character when he reaches his final stage, all that can be done if I manage to discipline him and make sure the friendship level between us is good. Only time could tell we should just wait and see...
      The Magical Witch:
      After inserting the batteries oh my I couldn't believe I'm actually starting my very first Magical Witch that happens to be the air witch, also called Baluluna. After setting the time I waited for about 5 minutes to finally have my witch arrive! Also I would like to say that the animation is beautiful when there is a moon on the side of the screen that keeps rotating until your witch arrive, thought that was a perfect intro that suits the theme of the toy  

      She was hungry and wasn't feeling well (as she should be I mean who take 5 minutes to show up) I fed her some seeds and snacks to fill her meters up.
      After settling her down, I went and searched about mixing the ingredients to create potions because that's what Magical Witches are about, using magic to either curse or cure another witch. I tried the first time mixing the very first potion that you can make and things did not turn out well...

      the first attempt as you can see above didn't end well, while using the mixing bowl my witch looked funny when suddenly the potion exploded at her haha! She looked a bit sick and it took me a lot of time to actually figure out how to cure her from the explosion and turned out one of the seeds she has in store can actually cure her but needed to be used multiple times. I decided to give her a break for few minutes and go for another try one more time. This time she did well by mixing the ingredients well and we got what we wanted for our very first mix which is mushrooms:

      Each time you successfully mix the ingredients you will get three pieces from the same mix. I gave my witch another break and made sure she is fed and healthy before going for the second potion she has to make. 
      The second mix went very well and it took only one attempt:

      As can be seen, the second item she obtained is a broom, which will help us obtain the third item/food that we will try to mix tomorrow.  
      Paying attecntion to her MP or Magical Power could give us a really good results with the witch behavior and how well she could produce different mixtures, if there's another witch involved that will help it increase even faster but we should be alright with just one.
      The End:
      That was all it for today, I personally am enjoying them both equally and I believe the more is yet to come. Although my Devil keeps beeping while it's asleep as I'm writing this it beeped more than 5 times (now it's 3am where I live) I've always loved the fact that you need to take care of a Devil and that didn't disappoint especially that I have terrible history with vintage tamagotchis but this one is different I can tell.  The Magical witches don't necessarily function as a Tamagotchi but they do look alike. For example the icons are similar, the buttons and how they respond is the same and I think the overall it's simpler gameplay wise. Definitely excited to see what we can do tomorrow so stay tuned.  
      this is the end of today's log, hope you guys enjoyed it please feel free to comment about anything.

      Hey guys!
      The long-anticipated moment has arrived..
      I got my very first Tamagotchi!
      It is the Magic White version of the Tamagotchi ON.
      So in this log, I won't be posting pics, sadly.
      LET THE LOG COMMENCE!
      Friday, 27/11/2020.
      I started up my new Tama, filled in everything, and got ready for my egg to hatch!
      It hatched into.. a girl, which my dad named Daisy. 
      I took care of it, then it took a nap for, like 3 minutes. I woke up the screen to see that it had pooped on the spot.
      Not long after, it had evolved into Chiroritchi, a good care character!
      So I immediately got to getting out and earning gotchi points.
      That's it for now, see ya next time! >w<

      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.
