Scrungo's Morino Tamagotchi Log!

Recommended Posts

Hello, and welcome to my Morino log!

Now, I REALLY like bugs, ESPECIALLY Stag Beetles, or really anything with a horn/pincer. I also just like most bugs in general.

After finding a Tamagotchi thats ALL about bugs, I knew I had to get it. The only thing that comes this close to my love of bugs is Fish.

 

In this log, I plan to:

Run the Polka Dot egg to get a feel for how this Tamagotchi plays.

Run the White egg several times after the Polka Dot egg, and see who I get.

Discuss how I got specific outcomes to the best of my ability.

Talk about new features the Morino has, and differences it has from other vintage Tamas the best I can.

 

With introductions out of the way, I hope you all enjoy this log of the Japan exclusive, Morino Tamagotch!

Alright, so I put the batteries in and turned it on.

I decided to go with the Polka dot egg, which will always result in getting Kabutotchi.

After about 5 minutes or so, he hatched!

...Just to fall asleep.

 

I swiftly turned out the lights, and now he's just sleeping soundly.

It's 10:11 PM as I write this, and I'm contemplating changing the clock on my Tama so I can play with it some more tonight, although I'm not 100% sure I want to do so.

If I do, expect to see another post later tonight with my progress on Kabutotchi!

I ended up changing the time so that I could play with it all night, and good thing I did. 

I squeezed a good 7-8 hours out of this thing tonight alone, which just means less time I'll have to wait to get the the Cocoon stage!

unknown.png

(Heres a pic of him awake, since in the last post it was of him sleeping :P

 

At 3:00AM CST he got attacked by a Frog!

Unfortunately I was unable to get a picture of it due to me caring about my Tamas well being more than a picture.

When I can, I'll make sure to take a picture and post it, probably on another run most likely.

 

Other than that, not much happened tonight, and from what I know, it'll take about 72 hours to turn into a cocoon.

So, since there isn't much to report on, I'll take this time to talk about new features/differences I notice!

 

Starting with...

The Shell Game!

unknown.png

In this game, you must find a leaf randomly hidden under one of these 4 hats/jars/shells (I'm not entirely sure what they are, honestly).

Much like the P1's "Left or Right" game, this is both random, and has a "pattern" to it.

You must find 2 out of 4 leaves to fill in a leaf on the happy meter. If you manga to find all 4, it will fill in 2 leaves instead of 1 on the happy meter!

Personally, This game is alright. I like it a bit more than "left or Right", but can feel slow, and if you cant figure out the pattern to find the leaves, can lead into attempting the game several times which can be annoying.

 

Secondly, I'll talk about...

The Screen Saver!

unknown.png

A new mechanic to the Morino, after about 8ish seconds of innactivity, the screen goes from showing your Tama, to this cute background of two trees, and your Tama flying in between them!

At first I liked this, I thought it was really cool! but after a while, I found myself just wanting to watch my Tamas idle animation due to how cute they always are! So I found myself pushing a button just to view it.

If it had a bit more personality, like Babymotchi/Imotchi crawling on the ground (since they cant fly), and the Cocoon/Minotchi hanging from a tree branch, I'd like it a lot more! But regardless of whatever Tamagotchi you have at a given time, they'll always be shown flying around the screen, to my knowledge at least.

If your Tama gets attacked by a Predator and you don't stop it, on the screen saver it will be on the ground instead of flying. However I cant prove this since that has not happened to me yet, but I thought id mention it at least while I'm already talking about the screen saver.

 

 

 

Well, that's it from me for now. 

I'll see you guys later with any new discoveries/things I want to talk about when it comes to the Morino! 

Until next time! :D

As expected, not much happened today.

He got attacked once earlier in the day, but sadly I forgot to check the time.

And then he got attacked at around 11:14PM apparently, because next time I checked my Tama, he looked like this!

unknown.png

I've heard that if you don't react to a predator fast enough, your Tama will end up in bandages, and I'm 95% sure that's what happened here, sadly.

Funny thing is, I don't remember hearing him getting attacked. Perhaps the batteries in this Tama are getting so low that the volume is getting quiet, or my hearing is just bad, could go either way lol. :lol:

If anything, at least I got to take a picture of what it looks like so that I can share it with this log! :P 

 

Other than that, I never let his leaves drop below 1, and was just an uneventful day overall tbh.

Oh, and it seems like hes been losing his hunger faster than before, it's been so slight that I think its just my brain playing tricks with me, but I swear his meter is going down faster and faster... :o

 

Well, guess I could take this time to talk about another feature of this Tama...

Multiple Food Choices!

unknown.png

Normally (and to my knowledge) Vintage Tamas only have 2 food choices: One that fills up hunger & weight, and one that fills happiness & a lot of weight.

This one (albeit not shown in the picture provided) has up to 4 different food options, some of which change throughout the day, and others that are only accessible with certain outcomes!

The leaf increases your food meter, as well as your weight by 1. But the other option (which changes throughout the day) raises your food hunger by 1, and weight by 2.

Fatter Tamas are considered healthier in this version, so its best to go with the second option rather than the leaf since the game lowers your weight by 1, essentially making the leaf useless. :P

Once I learn more about the food, I'll go more in depth about it and how it works, but for now I figured I'd go ahead and mention it since today has been slow, and it gives me something to write about :lol:

 

 

Tomorrow will most likely be as slow as today, and since I don't think he'll go into a cocoon by tomorrows end, and I don't think there's any other features I can talk about about at the moment, there may or may not be a post tomorrow.

If anything happens with my Tama, I'll see you guys tomorrow.

And if nothing happens tomorrow, I'll see you whenever something does happen :lol:

At around 10:15PM, something finally happened!

My Tama turned into a cocoon!

unknown.png

So, I kept him with me all day, but I never heard the music that plays when a Tama evolves.

The sound on this has been pretty low as well, and it's really bugging me. :lol:

I don't know if its a battery problem, a problem with my unit, or some other third thing.

In my next run I'll replace the batteries just to be safe, and hopefully that fixes it.

 

When your Tama turns into a cocoon, the status screen shows this instead of the usual meters, age, and weight:

The Temperature Screen!

unknown.png

Pushing the A button changes which way the arrow is facing, and the other 2 buttons just take you back to your cocoon.

My theory is that over time, it slowly gets hotter or colder (depending on where the arrow is facing), and you have to check in every few hours to make sure it doesnt get TOO hot or cold.

I always thought you'd push the B button and it would change instantly, but I guess I was wrong :lol:

 

Since this is the polka dot egg, we're destined to get Kabutotchi within the next 24 hours.

I wont spend too much time with Kabutotchi, as much as I love Rhino Beetles, I really want to see the other Tamas in this version!

I'll stick with Kabutotchi for a bit to document what hes like and stuff, but after a few days, I'll either get more lax when it comes to taking care of him, or just reset, idk yet.

 

 

Welp, I'll see you guys when Kabutotchi emerges from his cocoon! :D

Hey! Sorry I haven't done an update in a while, I've been pretty busy with things haha.

Enough about me though, because a few days ago on Monday at 8:33PM, Kabutotchi emerged from the cocoon!

unknown.png

He looks so COOOOOOOL!!!!!!!! :D

Like I've stated several times before, I LOVE Rhino Beetles/Stag Beetles, so Kabutotchi is immediately my FAVORITE outcome on the Morino due to that. :wub:

Ok, enough about me gushing over my favorite bugs, lets move onto another feature of the Morino...

 

The Length Screen!

unknown.png

This screen shows up as the 4th page on the status menu once you get Kabutotchi, and is exclusive to him! (As far as I know, at least)

I'm not sure on how you make it go up. My guess is that it's tied to both how much he eats, and how old he gets, but I could be wrong.

I don't think there's any incentive to increase his length either, I think its more of a "High Score" thing to compete with your friends, and to have bragging rights if you get yours to be really long or something.

 

Also, have this picture of Kabutotchi sleeping!

unknown.png

Look at him, hes using a LEAF as a blanket! its so CUTE! 

 

Well, aside from that, not much as happened, especially since I've had him paused due to me being busy. However I shouldn't be as busy for a while, so he shouldn't have to be paused much anymore!

It might be a few days until the next update, it sucks to leave you guys again for a few days, but oh well, there's not much I can talk about when hes an adult lol :lol:

So, I'll see you guys in a few days if anything happens! Expect the White Egg soon as well! :D

Yeah! The Mori looks like a really charming version.

Incidentally, @Scrungo, maybe your log has contributed to the sudden run on these at Japan You Want? I was browsing a bit over the last few days and every single one that they had was quickly gone! :lol:

Oh my god, you really think so?? :o

If it is the case, that'd be really cool knowing that I influenced people to buy this Tama, especially since it's one of my favorites! :lol:

It's just a guess, since this is the only remaining active Tamagotchi fan-site as far as I know and therefore people from here (be they members or simply readers) are some of the most-likely customers of Japan You Want, and, like @Berks says, I've never seen all of their Mori no Tamagotchi stock sold out either. :lol:

Fun fact:

Before the English Ocean was released, Bandai America was planning to do a Mori in English. 

But after the release of the Ocean, Bandai suddenly decided to cease production of Tamagotchis.

At that time, it was like the ending of the Tamagotchi era, until the Connection series.

I am glad, though, that Bandai decided to start making Tamas again! :D

Hey! Long time no see!

I'm sorry I haven't been able to update this in FOREVER, things have been busy now that I'm finally graduated from high school, so I haven't been able to post much, or play with my Tama much...

Which means that, sadly, our Kabutotchi has sadly passed away... :(

(Sorry for the not so good image, I got a new phone and I'm still trying to figure out the camera)

unknown.png

Life got decently busy after my last post on this thread, which means I had to pause him a lot, and his schedule was really weird regardless.

I don't remember how many years he lived, somewhere around 12-16, which honestly isn't that good from what I've done before...

But that doesn't matter, Kabutotchi was really just for getting used to the Morino as a whole, now that I understand it's mechanics, getting a specific outcome with the white egg should be easy!

But sadly, that'll have to wait as I've been really busy for the past few weeks.

When I gain some free time to be able to care and look over a Tama, I'll return with a run of the white egg for sure!

 

 

So, with all that said and done, Rest in Peace Kabuto (which is the nickname I just now decided to give him), You'll be dearly missed.:(

And hopefully I'll see you guys sometime soon with my run of the white egg! ^_^

See ya then! :D

Kabuto is a Pokemon!

Fun fact: The Pokemon is named after the kabutogani (the Japanese name for the horseshoe crab that it's based on), and the name is also shared with a type of samurai helmet. ;)

@Scrungo picked a great name. :)

      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.

      Just had something strange happen with my Morino. While I was playing the game after feeding my tamagotchi a size growing candy the visuals corrupted between rounds; the leaf display showed three leaves instead of the usual four and took me to the feeding screen rather than the guessing game. When I exited the menu my tamagotchi was asleep and checking the clock I noticed that the time had reset to 12:30am, so I corrected the clock and checked my tamagotchi's status. All of their stats had emptied to 0, not just hunger and happiness but the size stat too, which is odd since it starts with 30mm if I remember correctly. The weight said PM 0 or PM 1, I can't recall the last digit as I was preoccupied with the PM mark, I assume this was some sort of error from trying to display a value outside of the normal range of weights.
      I went to the food option and, while I'm not familiar with all of the Kabutotchi growing candies, I had a growth candy available to me that seemed to resemble a parfait in a raised bowl. The candy grew Kabutotchi 2mm, restored two points of hunger, fully filled happiness, and set the weight to 99mg, though I'm not sure whether this was some sort of overflow/underflow glitch, the game realising that the weight was greater than the upper cap and lowering it to be in bounds, or maybe the candy just raises the weight to max.
      My current theory is that the power was interupted momentarily just through freak coinsidence, I'll give the contacts a good clean when I change the batteries next, but if anyone knows anything else this could be please let me know!

      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!
