Hohotchi's Hatchlings, Season 2: The ChoHimetchi Quest

Recommended Posts

Episode 1

Hello again everyone! Some of you may remember seeing me on this site in around 2017 and 2018. I tend to take long breaks from the venerable Tamagotchi, but I do surface every now and then, and now I'm back! I hope you've been well. In my previous logs, I ran a hefty amount of Tamagotchis (usually around 8 or so) but this time I have a smaller roster. I feel that this will make me less likely to "burn out" so early, like I did last time. It will also make this log easier to write, and will give you less baggage to read through. So I think it's a win-win! My ultimate goal for this log is to keep it sustainable and exciting, so I'll also cycle through my active Tamas from time to time and perform various evolution experiments. I hope you enjoy it!

You might have noticed the unusually specific title of this log; that's because I have an underlying goal to obtain ChoHimetchi on my active Version 2! Why ChoHimetchi, of all things? It's actually due to many reasons. Firstly, I haven't had it on a Version 2 since I was a kid, and I always thought it was a cool-looking character worth getting again. But it's also because it seems to be very elusive to me. I tried to get ChoHimetchi multiple times in my previous logs, but my attempts badly backfired (Most of the time, I landed on the right tier but got the more common Mimitchi instead!). As a result, ChoHimetchi seems to have been an ever-present goal that I have always failed to reach. I feel like Wile E. Coyote or the Team Rocket Trio, and I must settle this, once and for all!

As a result, this log will generally theme around my active Version 2 and the quest for ChoHimetchi, but it will also have some other Tamas with their own experiments to keep things varied. At the moment, I am running four units, which I think provides a decent balance. So, without further ado, let's introduce the gang!

Tamagotchi No. 1: Flowery Blue Version 2

spacer.png

This is the Version 2 that will be featured in my quest to get ChoHimetchi. This shell (which I think is supposed to represent an underwater theme) is very nostalgic to me because it originally belonged to my sister back when I got my first Tamagotchi, which was a green Version 2 that I have stored for now. For many years, this blue Tamagotchi was actually disassembled as a source of spare parts, but I restored it back to working condition in 2018 due to nostalgia. While it functions well enough, its speaker does not work and its infrared system is busted, meaning that it cannot connect to others (thank goodness for the Matchmaker!).

This Version 2 was the first one I re-started after my last hiatus; I did so shortly before Christmas so that I would have something to occupy myself with. I have run it non-stop since then, and it is now in its fifth generation. I had tried to get ChoHimetchi all this time but to no success. Currently, it has a 7 year-old Pochitichi named Dale, who just had a male baby this afternoon. Since ChoHimetchi is only obtainable on even generations, Dale's baby will be my only possible attempt for a couple of weeks.

In order to obtain ChoHimetchi, I must give the baby perfect care (especially in the Teenager stage) since the character is on the topmost tier on even generations. Then, when it evolves into an adult, I must blindly hope that ChoHimetchi is randomly chosen out of the three characters in the top tier. It can be a frustrating process! For my last two attempts (in the second and fourth generation, respectively), I tried to land on the top tier but instead got the middle tier due to accidental neglect. In fact, I actually got Dorotchi both times! So I'd better be very vigilant this time.



Tamagotchi No. 2: Ice Blue Version 4

spacer.png

Two of the other Tamas I am running at the moment are Version 4s. The main reason for this is due to an ongoing research project on the Version 4's growth chart, conducted by Maria&Co. and tamaninjacat. See the thread here:


I was very impressed by the headway they made in the research, so I decided to help them! This snowy blue Version 4 (which I have featured in my previous logs) is thus mostly being used to test theories that are being established in that thread.

Currently, this shell has a first-generation Harutchi named Mewtwo, whom I am using to test Child/Teenager evolution patterns. Today, I meant to give him two care mistakes through the Child stage (though instead I accidentally gave him three), and I will see whether this makes him a Mame family teen or a Meme one. It is generally established that Harutchi becomes either a Mame or Meme teen depending on the amount of care, but it is still unknown what exact numbers of care mistakes make what. There are similar mysteries with the Meme and Kuchi families as well, so I aim to help solve these questions in the future!



Tamagotchi No. 3: Sea Blue Version 4

spacer.png

This is the second Version 4 that I'm using for the evolution research project. While I started the other one from a clean slate, I decided to continue this one from where it left off to investigate the prominence of "family genes" in the Version 4. It turned out that the character was a 7 year-old Masktchi named Gina, who was actually all the way back from my first log. She became a Masktchi mostly because I accidentally left her unpaused when away, which led her getting neglected for a day. However, I found this useful for the research because it allows me to test how the Universal family affects "genes" in the Version 4.

Shortly after I had Gina running again, she got a Matchmaker visit and had a baby. Her partner was a Tosakatchi, so I will see if that partner brings Meme genes to the baby in the future. Once Gina leaves, I will experiment with the baby, just like Mewtwo, and report results.



Tamagotchi No. 4: Rainbow Version 4

spacer.png

Yes, my final Tamagotchi is yet another Version 4, but it is not being used for evolution research. Instead, it is for another purpose that I have continued on-and-off since my first log.

The Otokitchi in this shell is named Valma. She is currently aged 30 (in Tama-years of course), and I aim to get her over 90 years before breeding her with an Ojitchi. This, in theory, should make her one of the oldest parents of all time (though I doubt it will break the best record - someone has probably had an Ojitichi or Otokitchi breed over the age of 100). Nonetheless, it would still be a good achievement. While I can technically wait until she is well past 100, I do pause her regularly, so I will be unable to record her age after the two-digit counter fills up.

Valma is very easy to care for, though I do give her high priority to make sure she does not have a care mistake. In the Connection series, if a Senior takes care mistakes, they become more and more needy until they die. As a result, I must make sure that Valma does not take any care mistakes during her long run. If care mistakes are avoided entirely, Valma can theoretically live forever. There have been a few times when people have gotten Ojitchi or Otokitchi to live for hundreds of Tama-years!

Due to her age, Valma has an incredible amount of Intelligence points (I usually play Shape when playing on a Version 4). She'd make a Tensaitchi jealous!

Episode 2

Hi again! I have a fair bit of news to share, so it's time for me to post it here!

Firstly, I'll report on the Version 2 and my ongoing ChoHimetchi quest. Dale the Pochitchi (who had a son just before I wrote the first episode) left a couple of days later and I named the baby Syd. That day, I felt pretty tired and just watched a lot of YouTube videos, so I gave somewhat sloppy care to him in the baby stage. This showed because he became a Marutchi, which is generally considered the worst-care Child character!

spacer.png

I was a little relieved, though, since I generally get Hitodetchi and Kuribotchi on my Version 2s for some reason. At least it was a nice break! From then on, I took better care, as I had the ChoHimetchi goal after all. While browsing online, I stumbled across this interesting growth chart from Tama-Zone (Link: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/tamazone/tamagotchi-connection-version-2-growth-chart-t15081.html)

This rather old chart was interesting because it showed that not every adult character could be obtained from any one Teenage character (and the same with Child-Teenager evolution). I had a few theories about this aspect myself in my past logs, so I decided to carefully analyse my evolutions and see if they line up with this chart. Interestingly, the chart showed that Marutchi could only become either of the bad-care teens on even generations, so I gave Syd perfect care to test it out. The next day, he evolved into Propellertchi:

spacer.png

This certainly corroborates with the chart, so it may have had some truth after all! However, it will need more testing before I can mark it as truly accurate.

At the moment, Syd is three years old, so he'll become an Adult tomorrow. I have given him as perfect care as possible (with full 9 bars of Training) but I am unsure if I missed some of his discipline calls due to the dead speaker. I recently heard that the Version 2 might possibly count missed Training calls as care mistakes; if that's true, I might have actually missed the top tier entirely! Well, I'll have to see for myself tomorrow morning. Another thing to consider is from the Tama-Zone chart. Apparently, Propellertchi can only evolve into two of the three top-tier adults, which are Mimitchi and ChoHimetchi. If that's the case, I theoretically have a 50% chance to obtain ChoHimetchi if it lands in the top tier. It will be another opportunity for me to test the chart's accuracy! Nonetheless, I'm excited for what comes tomorrow.


There have also been developments on my two Version 4s that I'm using for evolution testing with Maria&Co. and tamaninjacat. My first test subject, Mewtwo (on the snowy Version 4) has made an interesting contribution. As I said last episode, Mewtwo evolved into a Harutchi for the Child stage and I gave him two care mistakes to help discover the threshold between Young Mametchi and Young Androtchi. It is generally believed that Young Mametchi is only obtained with very good care, so I was surprised when he became that character upon evolution!

spacer.png

This makes me think that Young Mametchi isn't actually as difficult to obtain as I thought, which was corroborated by other tests by Maria&Co. who obtained a Young Mametchi with four care misses! On the other hand, Young Mimitchi (generally referred to as Young Mametchi's female counterpart in this version) seems to be much harder to obtain for some reason. The more you know! Currently, Mewtwo is in the Adult stage (a Mametchi) and I'll wait for him to breed so I can do another test for the research.

spacer.png

This leads me to my other Version 4. Shortly after the last episode, Gina the Masktchi left her daughter, who I named Amber.

spacer.pngspacer.png

During the baby stage, I cared for her the same way as Mewtwo, but she became a Puchitchi instead of Harutchi. Whilst her direct parent was in the Universal family, I believe she got genes from Gina's Matchmaker partner, who was a Tosakatchi (Meme family). This may indicate that Baby>Child evolutions are not only influenced genetically but can also be influenced by the secondary partner, especially if the parent is Universal. I'll have to test that again later.

Maria&Co.'s research on Puchitchi indicated that it generally becomes a Mame Teen (Ringotchi or Young Androtchi) with very good care, but otherwise becomes a Meme Teen with lesser care. However, like with Harutchi, the exact threshold has not yet been found, so I decided to give Amber one care mistake and see where that takes her. Interestingly, she evolved into a Young Memetchi:


spacer.png

This leads me to come up with two theories; either Puchitchi only becomes a Mame Teen with almost perfect care (0 care mistakes) or that Child>Teen evolution is a little random, especially at certain care levels. Like my previous results, I'll also have to test this again to have more solid information on this.

Amber took Mr. Turtlepedia's class at school, so her high Intelligence points will have her become a Ponytchi tomorrow (she is now aged 2). I think I will marry her to Mewtwo and see where the Mame/Meme parent equation takes their children. The two of them are already good friends over connection, so a marriage will be quite easy when they're old enough.


spacer.png

Valma has now reached 34 Tama-years of age and is still doing very well. I have given her very good care as always, though she has gotten the occasional bad letter which temporarily put her happy hearts down to 1 (I fix these very quickly though). Nonetheless, these "care slips" (as I call them; not quite a care mistake) don't seem to affect her temperament. Ii seems that things only go downhill if she gets a proper care mistake, which is good. For now, she is as tough as a tank as she can go for a couple of hours without any hearts dropping. Most of the time, she is my least demanding Tama to care for! Only about 60 more Tama-years of this to go...

Episode 2: Extra Content

Hi all! I was surprised to find that Syd evolved a few minutes before his bedtime! Very impatient to grow up, perhaps?

It turned out that I did miss the top tier - he evolved into a Toratchi, which is on the second tier. So it seems that I might have indeed missed some discipline calls which may have counted as care mistakes (either that or the Version 2 chucked a random :D). But regardless, I'm quite happy at the result because I don't get Toratchi very often and I think it's a pretty cool character. So while it's a loss, it's at least not a bad one. Besides, wouldn't it be a little anticlimactic for me to achieve my ultimate goal so early in this log? :P

Interestingly, according to the chart from Tama-Zone, Propellertchi can't evolve into Toratchi, so my result basically blows the chart's validity out of the water. But I might do more tests with it to see if it is correct in some aspects. After all,  most secondary sources do have some truth to them, even if they have underlying errors.

The missed discipline calls do make me wonder whether the disconnected speaker will be a thorn in my side for generations to come. Perhaps it's time to fix this once and for all and learn some light welding... ;)

      ☆ Welcome to my Tama Log! There's no pictures (due to some technical issues), but I hope you can enjoy! ☆
      19th March: App Fun!
       I got the Tamagotchi App, it's so much fun! My Tama is only a kid so I couldn't go to the Tama ♥ Party, which is a shame. But I played the Restaurant Game and the Catching Flowers game! I unlocked both backgrounds and the toy rocket.  Apart from that, it's mostly just cleaning My Tama's poop and all that.  Current Stats ☟ Generation: 6 Age: 1 Y/O Evolution Stage: Toddler ✰ Rose ✰

      Hi everyone! I'm new to the forums, been lurking for a few weeks now. I've always loved Tamagochis, have played the OG ones, Japanese ones, etc. Now my biggest obsession is the Tamagotchi On ☆♡ So I'm creating this log to keep track of my two current babies
      I'll add pics in a minute (so expect lots of edits), this is just gonna be the ~format~ of how I talk about my babies I think!! 
      Magical On ~ Switchi (Gen 4 | 2 y/o)

      My first one, I got on my birthday of this year! Trying to get a spoopy lil baby ♡ Love the lil horns, but I eventually hope to get the witches broom body or the ghostie one!!!
      Fairy On ~ Mokumokutchi (Gen 1 | 1 y/o)

      Got this one a few days ago!! Was already able to unlock all the locations on both tamas, with the exception of fairy land on this tama ♡  First gen since I did the restart trick to get the gym unlocked!
       
      The thread is named split personality b/c not only do I want a super spoopy baby on my magic tama and a cutie  on my fairy one, but b/c my entire being is just being split between creepy and cute Hope you all enjoy my tama journey, please feel free to stop by and say hello!!

      Tamagotchi On twins did not evolve today, because I spent too much time with the man visiting the app, go me! 
      Narcoleptic fits resulted in care misses in earlier generations.

      I had originally felt burned by the Tamagotchi Meets when I first imported it, and I put it aside in irritation without going beyond the first generation. Recently, after enjoying so many Tamagotchi Meets/On logs around here, I felt that it was worth giving it another chance, so I grabbed some good batteries and started over, and soon grew to enjoy the device for what it is. The colour Tamagotchis represent a separate evolutionary line - their structure and gameplay are clearly descended from the Tamagotchi Game Boy game from 1997 - and I find that it helps to keep this in mind. That said, I still prefer the simpler Tamagotchis like the vintage devices and their re-releases, and the more recent Mini and Nano-based releases, as they're less time-consuming.
      So here I am, starting a new log. I have previously found standard logging to be too time-consuming, so my focus here will be pictures of the parents and of their fully-grown offspring. For now, I'll be running my pink Fairy Version Meets, but I'm keeping an eye out to see if any more versions are localised, as I would like to support the English-language On releases, too. I have no interest in using the mobile app, so that won't be featured here, and I'll be skipping the baby, toddler, and teen stages, as I'm most interested in the final results of each pairing. I may also include pictures of new additions to my collection every now and then, such as the upcoming Pac-Man 40th Anniversary Tamagotchi, but I most likely won't be logging those.
      So, without further ado, here's why this log is titled as it is: My first generation Tamagotchi was a male Gozarutchi. I changed his colour to pale yellow by feeding him five lemon pies at the restaurant, and shortly after that I had him marry Lovelitchi. They made a very cute couple!
      I'm actually not the biggest fan of Lovelitchi (I find her to be a bit on the generic-cutesy side), but it was obvious that the two's offspring would grow up to look adorable, and sure enough, they did;

      Here's a picture showing Gozarutchi and Lovelitchi, along with their twin daughters, Lemonitchi and Pietchi - so named because of how recent Gozarutchi's dessert-induced colour-change had been at the time. They both turned out exactly how I expected them to, which was fun. They also both inherited their father's pale yellow colour, even though, at birth, Lemonitchi was yellow and Pietchi was white. The only difference between them as adults is that Lemonitchi's bag is white, and Pietchi's is yellow.
      I'm planning to have Lemonitchi marry Kikitchi sometime tomorrow, so my next update will be once the next generation is fully grown. See you then!
