I purchased a previously loved Angelgotchi. It was tested before i purchased it and everything worked just fine. I purchased new batteries for it and I’ve played with it since I received it a few days ago. Today, I was playing the game, when all of a sudden the whole thing reset on me. Now I have to start from the beginning. Is it because it’s an old tamagotchi? Is something wrong with the device? How can I prevent this from happening again? Should I buy a brand new one? Has this happened to anyone?

This has happened to me with vintage tamagotchis as well as the connection models. I've never figured out why though. It's most likely a misconnection with the batteries, they probably shifted and lost contact with the backing of the shell for a few seconds causing it to reset. Maybe the device just got bumped the wrong way?

I wouldn't buy a brand new one, but I also have no clue how to prevent this. I wouldn't advise making the screws too tight, but you could use some tape if the back doesn't seem secure enough. I don't think it's the specific device since it's happened to me with many of my devices and I have yet to figure out the true root of the problem. If anyone else has input, please share, since this is an ongoing problem for me as well and a solution or explanation would be much appreciated! :D

This sort of thing can very often be traced back to the battery-contacts having been flattened down by batteries having been left in the device for a long time - a result of the metal being thin and flexible. The solution is to take a very small flat-head screwdriver and very slowly and very very carefully bend the contacts upwards.

I've had to do this multiple times before, and it always fixes the problem. :)

      Hi everyone, I recently rekindled my passion for tamagotchi and bought a second hand Japanese angelgotchi. On my third try I ended up with a ghost jr who didn’t turn into maruten the first day, whose AP maxed out at 90, and after looking around the internet I realized this is what happens in rare cases where it evolves into Lucky Unchikun instead.
      it’s now the 7th day (I counted, I’ve messed with the times a bit that changed its age) and my tama is still a ghost jr (baby), and I’m starting to wonder if I’m doing something wrong that’s stopping it from evolving? I’ve mostly taken good care of it, keeping the hungry and happy hearts are filled out, discipline bar full and AP is kept at 90. I might have had some care misses on the first day though, because I was trying to get the bad care teen before realising it was Ghost jr. who didn’t evolve I’m pretty bummed because this seems to be a really rare occurrence...
      does anyone know how you’re supposed to treat Ghost Jr. to allow it to turn into Lucky Unchikun? Any specific AP range it should be kept at? (Eg maybe I shouldn’t keep it at 90? And let it drop?) thanks so much in advance!!!

      Okay, so we've seen the re-release of P1 and P2 Tamagotchis, the Tamagotchi mini's, Digimon, the Tamagotchi Nano's are doing well, and the On/Meets/Some are also doing good. This is purely speculation at this point, but perhaps we may see a new wave of the Angel, Forest, and Ocean? I would seriously flip my lip if that happened! And don't even get me started on the Devilgotchi, if that got re-released it would be amazing. Though that one is probably the least likely to be re-released out of the bunch.  
      I hope that if Bandai goes down this path and Tamagotchi continues to be successful again, maybe they'll re-release the connections as well? Sigh, one can dream.
      What does everyone else think? Do you think a re-release of the Angel/Forest/Ocean is feasible? Would you also flip your lid?  I'd love to hear everyone else's thoughts!

      I saw one of these Angelgotch watches on Ebay recently.

      I searched and searched for informations but I couldn´t find any.
      Are there rare? Why isn´t there some informations?
      Does someone here have one?
      I´m so confused
      Thanks for your answers

      What are the rarest shell designs for the vintage tamas? And which ones are your favourites?
    • By Eternal Mametchi Fan
      Choose your favorite Angelgotchi character and vote in the poll! I didn't include Lucky-Unchi Kun and Deviltchi because they're not angels XD
      If you want, make a post saying why it's your favorite.

      I just found out today that my beloved Tamagotchi Ocean's A B and C buttons are barely, or COMPLETELY Non-Responsive. How do I fix this, if it's at all possible? this is the first Tamagotchi I have EVER owned that has gone wrong on me, and I really don't want this to be my first permanently DEAD Tamagotchi...
      I also found out, that my Japanese Tamagotchi Angel (Angelgotch) has stripped screws. I recieved it three weeks ago, WITH batteries already in it. I played with it for about a week and a half, and I decided to take the batteries out for storage. I can't get the screws off. one is SEVERELY stripped, and the other one is well on it's way. Is there ANYTHING I can do? Or is my brand new Angel doomed?
