I got this odd pet in a lot, and it initially didn't work, but after disassembling it, I found that one of the capacitors on the board had come loose and the metal part that connects the two LR44 batteries together was missing.

It comes in a dinkie dino shaped shell, and from the sprites, I think that this pet is a gyaoppi variant called the 'cute pet' listed on tamenargerie's odd pet page (links under the spoiler).

There are 4 buttons, the first scrolls through icons, the 2nd and 3rd seem to have the same function, which is to select options and bring up the clock screen. The 4th button is the cancel button. The sound is quite loud, I've tried pressing combinations of these 4 buttons, but haven't found a way to turn off sound or reset the clock.

The hatching animation showed a volcano erupting, and then a screen with a pulsating egg. Strangely enough, my pet hatched sick, with a skull icon above it's head.

There are 10 icons, in order they are:

  • Food (two options, a rice bowl? and seeds?)
  • Lights
  • Game
  • Exercise (I've also seen this exercise animation on the cyberpet)
  • Medical cross (brings up an animation of an ambulance, increases health bar but decreases happiness, can be used even when pet it not sick)
  • Toilet
  • Status
  • Book (decreases happiness)
  • Attention icon (non-selectable)
  • Door

The stats screen displays your pet's age, weight, hunger, EQ, happiness, health and IQ.

Selecting the Education and Door icons doesn't seem to do anything, maybe they only work when the pet calls for them. In the game, a heart flashes between two boxes and you have time your press to 'capture' the heart in a box. You can easily win by spamming the 1st button, as the heart will always spawn in the left box first. Winning increases both happiness and IQ.

Edit: I tried the door icon today, and a box/door appeared onscreen, which the character went into. Maybe it acts as a sort of daycare function, as I now cannot do anything to the pet with the exception of checking the status. Clicking on the door icon again does nothing.

Has anyone heard of this pet before? (Images under the spolier)

A lot of those sprites look like they were lifted directly from the P1 which I know is super common but is still really fun to see. 

I'm really interested in hearing more about it if you continue to let it run.

Got the 2nd stage evolution today, minor panic yesterday, as the unit froze while I was spamming buttons impatiently. I left it alone overnight, hoping that it would fix itself and it did.

I had everything maxed out except for the EQ bar which I still don't know how to increase. According to the growth chart, I seem to have gotten the bad care evolution.

I've drawn up some of the sprites for this evolution, from left to right, top to bottom, they are:

a) Regular sprite b) Happy animation A c) Happy animation B c) Refusing food animation d) Angry animation A e) Angry animation B

The pet is now 5 years old and hasn't evolved further. Still no idea how to raise EQ, but it has increased slightly over time.

  • Found out that the book icon is for disclipining your pet when it calls for no reason.
  • Discovered that the heart doesn't always span on the left side when you play the game, but the game is still easy to cheese if you then switch to spamming the B button.
  • Exercise decreases weight and food while increasing the health bar.
  • The seed/snack option in the food menu increases happiness and weight.

Forgot about the pet for a whole morning and it died, it was 9 or 10 years old. I'm going to put the pet away for now, it was getting boring just filling the meters up without it changing at all.

      I haven't found much info on this virtual pet made by M&D, so I started a topic hoping to catalog some of the characters I get.
      There a guide for this pet by Melissatchi on Instagram: https://www.dropbox.com/s/n43ymdhgaqssc1f/NANA MOON FAIRY-PET GUIDE.pdf?dl=0
      Alongside raising your pet, you're tasked with gathering the '7 magical treasures'. Treasures 1-5 can be obtained by purchasing and using items from the in-game shop. Treaasure 6 is a telescope item which had been theorised to be unlocked by connecting to another maxi 10 times, and Treasure 7 may have something to do with inputting a passcode when you've obtained 6/7 treasures.
      Here's what I got from my first run:

      I'll update as I unlock characters, but I'm mainly creating this topic to gather info from others who've run this pet.

      Hi everyone!

      Its that time again! Time for Porg to make yet *another* thread asking for help. I’m so sorry about this guys, I am convinced that this site is going to be covered in threads made by only me before long. *Facepalm*

      Right! Onto the issue- I am basically looking for answers as to whether or not this particular virtual pet is salvageable or not. The pet in question is my Super-Sized Super Gyaoppi. I’ve been very eager to play with this again, especially as when I received it, it was right at the end of my initial run, before life got busy. I haven’t opened it up before now and oh my goodness… I wish I had!

      The back of the case was stained with a weird deep chestnut brown colour- which thankfully came off very easily. Much to my horror, that same deep brown stuff was inside on the battery terminal- mostly on one side. I’ve been scrubbing at it with white vinegar and rubbing alcohol- and I’ve managed to get quite a lot off, yet not all of it- given its on the spring coil and behind it and I don’t want to ruin anything. I have no idea what this brown stuff is- I assumed battery corrosion or rust at first. I’m assuming it is not rust, given when I scrub it off, the contacts are silver underneath.

      After scrubbing at it to a point where I was willing to try some batteries, I popped them in and to my delight it beeped. Success! Or so I thought. Upon turning it over, the screen appears to have pixels missing and is pretty much unusable because of it. Buttons and sound are good, however.

      Now, whilst scrubbing at my pet, I felt the case creek a little- so I am wondering two things- the first of which is, is this pet salvageable? And if so…. What can I do to save it?

      The fading I will just have to put up with, as I am assuming this is due to age, yet the missing pixels are another story. Is it possibly caused by the remaining stuff left on the battery component? Or is it something to do with the screws holding the pet together (in which case, should I tighten them or open it up? I haven’t done so yet, as the screws are hidden in incredibly deep holes in the back). Is there something I can do internally to solve this- or is it simply down to the battery area (I am assuming not, given the sound works and it does turn on now). Or is it simply that this Virtual Pet is… Well… Sadly done for?

      Any advise would be fantastic and very much appreciated. I am a worrier by nature and I am gutted to see that a pet I was looking forward to playing with isn’t working as desired- especially not as I have had issues with several pets I have booted up recently. I am really hoping that this is simply down to something as simple as tightening the screws…


      Thank you in advance and sorry again for posting so many ‘help’ topics! I’ve posted pictures below of what the screen looks like and I have tried to take a photo of the brown side of the battery area. Unfortunately it doesn’t look brown on my camera, but it was hard to get it in the right angle to take a photo. You can see where I have cleaned it and removed some of the offending substance.

      Hello everyone, yes I need some help with Gyaoppi 2 again... While it was in my pocket, looks like my Gyaoppi 2 entered fast growth mode by accident (where minutes pass by like seconds) Does anyone know how to stop it? I was forced to stop the time or he would die, I couldnt keep up... I tried what it says on tamenagerie, but none of it works. If anyone has instructions for any similar Gyaoppis, to see if I can find info there, I would greatly appreciate it.

      Hello Tamatalk,
       
      I'm new to this forum. As a kid, I used to really enjoy playing with all sort of oddpets, and one of my favourites was the Gyaoppi. So, as an adult, I felt like getting into it again, and ordered a Gyaoppi II from Ebay. It's every single bit as awesome as I remember, except for one little detail: apart from when it's born and needs to eat and play, its hunger and happiness meters NEVER GO DOWN. It has already pooped, weather has changed, already disciplined him once, but he never seems to need to eat or play. Is this a normal ocurrence with this type of gyaoppi pet? Can anyone help?

      Hello! When I was about 10 years old, maybe younger, I saw a digital virtual pet/device in Target for pretty cheap... I think it was $10 or less. But anyway, I only saw it ONCE and the next time I went to Target, it wasn't there. I've never seen or heard about it since then, and I even looked through some of those oddpet websites but I don't think I found it... I'm not sure if it was even a pet, maybe just some other random animal-related device.
       
      But anyway, I remember the toy or packaging being mostly red. It was rectangle-shaped, with only two buttons, and it was at a 45-degree angle in the packaging. I thought it was called "My Pet Shop" or something similar, but I googled that and couldn't find anything accurate. I think there was a building on the packaging, presumably a pet shop, and there were some pixelated animals including a bat.
       
      Does this pet ring any bells? I doubt it, but it's worth a shot asking.
