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:

      Entry #001 
      Hello and welcome to KeroPyontchi's new-and-improved Tamagotchi log! 
      This is Mochi. She is the third generation of three girls in a row on this v3 here. She is also the third Tamatchi I have gotten in a row! Nonetheless, I am determined to take good care of her because her grandmother was a Masktchi, and her mother a Warusotchi (pineapple looking gal), both considered "horrible" care adults. 13 year old me would be shaking right now! Maybe now that I know other Tamaparents are reading this it'll push me to take better care of mine. A log with only the worst care characters over and over would be way too repetitive and boring.

      (Please excuse any formatting issues as I get the hang of this again)  
      I'm currently on the hunt for the next Tamagotchi or virtual pet to add to my collection rebuild. There's a lot to consider here in terms of budget, what version to get, where to buy from, ect. I'm not in a hurry to rebuild my collection too quickly since I know I'm an impulsive person. I also have some sort of color Tamagotchi back at my parent's house, I'll have to look back on my old logs to see what version it is, and maybe I can run that one too!
      Not really much else to say today, I'll update tomorrow when Mochi evolves. 
      Until next time, thanks for reading  ₍˶ˆ꒳ˆ˶₎✼:♡*゚✿

      Hello! It's been quite some time since I last logged here or was even active at all but I've decided to resume logging with something I've been wanting to try again for a while.
      I'm not sure how many people remember my first log (it was back in 2016, after all), but quite a bit of it centered around a V3 I was raising as an oldie. I ended up keeping that V3 alive for well over a (human) year, and for quite a bit now have been wanting to try it again. I actually did do it last year with one of my V2s, an Ojitchi named Ricky who accidentally died at age 105. Well now, I'm ready to raise another oldie. I chose this tropical V2 to house it:

      I chose that tama because it is already pretty worn, and when I run oldies I take them everywhere with me. So I won't have to worry about this one getting scratched up or faded because it already is. I initially was going to reset it and start fresh, but I last left off with a Ginjirotchi on it and Ginjirotchi is one of my all time favourite characters. I couldn't possibly bear to reset one. So instead I married her off and her baby boy will be the future oldie:

      I'm thinking of naming him Ricky, which is also what my previous V2 oldie was named. Ricky the 1st lived to be 105, so maybe Ricky the 2nd can have even better luck! For now there's not much to be done with this tama, but I'll be back to update again once he is left on his own.

      not a big deal to most, but when i was a kid i just could never manage to keep my tamagotchis alive long enough to get them married, not to mention i only found out what 'bonding' was halfway through the first generations teenage hood; so on the first day of the second generation i spent hours getting the bonding to 100%!

      Hey gang, I'll make this short.
      Recently, I got myself an Entama (it's the shell design below, PLUS the beads which are easily the best part) after not knowing where my 4.5 was for ages because I wanted to play again, and uh.. the version one rereleases are pretty good but you basically have to let them die after a while, and I do not have the heart for that. Eh well.

      I do not speak or read a lick of Japanese, so this'll be fun.
      So, introducing.. AKIRA! Or, as it's put into the system, あきら.

      <-- he started life looking like this lil' fella (Kuchiotchi) and due to the way the Entama characters work, his appearance was pretty much set. I guess I have a soft spot for Kuchis now.

      In less than a day, he got these stubby lil legs, and looked like a takoyaki! He also started preschool and learned to dance. By this time I'd already started training him in the Kindness GUTS points so he'd get the right teacher as a teen.

      A couple of days ago, he grew into a Young Kuchipatchi (guess I took good care of him?) and earned the privilege of arms. He started school in Kindness, still grinding those GUTS points. I also got him a trampoline which he really likes. Thank all that is holy for the continued existence of the EnWarehouse program or I wouldn't have been able to get most if any of the right stuff. Man, I miss TamaTown every day of my little life. I don't do much anymore to note, but he did come with me for groceries.

      When I woke up this morning, my young lad evolved into a full grown Kuchipatchi! Ah, they (literally) grow up so fast. He still goes to school at the moment, but soon he'll have to get job hunting. Hoping for the Onsen job but I think he'll do just fine in anything he does. Then, it'll be time to find a partner. Oh man, they get so big so quick..
      Well, that's all for Mr. Akira for now. He says "hello" and to have a nice day.

      Hey everyone! It's been a while hasn't it? Seriously, I can't believe the last time I was on this site I was 17 years old whew time sure flies by! I recently went back to my Tamagotchi M!x after watching a Tiktok lol so I figured I would start a new tamagotchi log here.! So! Let me introduce you to my Tamagotchi~ I'm hoping to later bring back my other Tamagotchis but I need batteries rip 
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      Name: Alice
      Type: Bellchi
      Stage: Baby
      Gender: Female
      Happiness: Cyan
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      Apparently Alice wants to be a bit of a pain in the butt because as soon as she hatched she decided she would be depressed and wouldn't stop untill I gave her a bunch of sweets....and then after that proceeded to begin going to the bathroom every 5 seconds.  

      Then before I knew it though she grew up into Bellchi! Admittedly I didn't take the best care of her cuz most of the time she was a baby I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to connect it to the M!x website (I eventually figured it out but apparently Bellchi cannot identify flowers for the life of her). Luckily I actually quite like Bellchi cuz she is pretty cute! Nice to have a reminder of the old Tamagotchi log I did like 4 years ago now. Anyway, sorry this log was rather short, I started Alice up fairly late so unfortunately she has decided it's time to sleep no but I'll try keep this updated as much as I can!

      Hello! May I ask if any of you have broken Tamagotchi ONs, and if you’d be willing to sell it? My daughter’s Tamagotchi ON’s front shell got warp really badly, that she is now using it without a front shell. The faceplate is taped to the back shell so it stays in place and she can still use the Tamagotchi. So now I am in search of Tamagotchi ON shells or broken ones so I can use the front shell of the broken one. If you guys could help me out and point me to the right direction, I’d really appreciate it. Thanks for your time!
