You don't need to apologize. Just post whenever it is most convenient for you, we're happy to read it whenever you get a chance :)

I second what @Berks says here. Don't feel any pressure. While it's an interesting read for us, what's truly important is that doing this log stays fun for you. ;)

I third what Berks and 321Boom said! Don’t push yourself for us if you don’t want to. Sometimes you burn out on your Tama, and that’s okay. The Tama can also wait for you if you remove the batteries. (Remember to store them in a safe place!) and we’ll wait for you too.) None of this is suppose to be stressful-in fact, it’s meant to be fun! We all care about you, from three tama fans to a another. :)

Make me the fourth voice, here. :)

There's no point in writing a log if it's not any fun for you, and you're not obligated to write one for others, either.

I've actually had two logs, so far, and I stopped with the first one because it eventually ended up feeling like too much of a chore. When I started my current one, I set a rule of only photographing and posting about important evolutions instead of every single step, and that made it a lot less time-consuming and a lot more fun. Just do things your own way. :)

HOKAY! It's been a minute, huh? aah... my depression got really bad for a bit there, but i started a new project with my friends so im back in action a bit :) we're working on getting me a therapist so hopefully this is better managed, eh?

here's what i missed out on letting yall know when i was .. well, mostly just chilling in bed, haha.

so here's cosmo! i ended up putting him on pause because he was all grown up, but i took this picture right before he did. so cute...

image0.jpg

i haven't started a new baby with nugget because i just- havent, so she's still around. her favorite toy is scooters, and i think she really liked banana smoothies? i didnt get a picture of it but she seemed REAL happy.

image1.jpg

if you hadn't heard; i got a dinkie! ... it's not working. i got the batteries in right, but now the buttons don't respond. then one of the internal screws is stripped. i got some good advice that i just haven't put to use yet because it all really was just super exhausting, you know? but here they are anyway, just for fun.

image2.jpg

but!!! i also got two OTHER tamas in the mail! i only turned on the V2, who i named. shrek. because it was like, eight in the morning and i didnt have the energy to think of something clever, haha...

image0.jpgimage3.jpgimage4.jpgimage0.jpg

mitch ended up growing up too! so he n shrek played together a while.

image5.jpg

image0.jpgimage1.jpgimage2.jpgimage3.jpg

before i turned off pacman, genuinely solely because i kept accidentally resetting it and was getting frustrated, i got this lil dude!

image4.jpg

then mitch and shrek both grew up completely! mitch i think about two days ago? and shrek was today. with this that means that cosmo is being unpaused and im going to probably put mitch on the shelf for a while!... mostly because i want to run the two V2s side by side, even though I have two V3s now and theyre my favorite version... maybe ill keep mitchell on anyways.

image1.jpgimage2.jpg

ok!! with all of that, thats!! it. everyone's up to date! ❤️

It sounds like there may be something wrong with this unit, unfortunately - it shouldn't be possible to accidentally reset it. :(

The only button that should reset it is the recessed one on the back, so, yeah, if you feel confident doing that (and voiding any warranties! :o), it's probably worth a look!

      Hello everyone and welcome to my log! 
      I would like to start this log by saying happy new year to all of you and wish you all the best in 2021. I'm sure last year was rough and we all struggled during the unexpected pandemic so please stay strong and safe because clearly the fight is not over, and I hope that this year is going to be the end of it and a beginning for all good things.  
      As you can see from the title that I'm going to log here about my Magical Witch and the Devilgotchi which I am so excited about and for some reason worried at the same time! I will be logging while I'm exploring these two fascinating toys and yes it took me SO long playing with them for what is going on in world, but the time has finally come and I hope you guys will enjoy this post. 
      So today is the day that I finally decided to put some batteries into my new evil babies and the excitement I felt when I turned them on! 
      Starting with the Devilgotchi:
      when I removed the tab I immediately saw to what appears to be  like a smoke that lasted for a few seconds until the bat showed up as you can see below:

      the bat just kept flying and flashing for about 2-3 minutes and then it evolved to Deviltchi:

      a new Devil is born, without really realizing the consequences of raising a devil has just begun! 😈
      I took sometime figuring out the menu and of course fed him and tried to fill his both Hunger and Happy meter. Right after that I played the 'Catch' game, all you have to do is throw a star for your devil to catch it. You need to collect 4 stars in each round to win. As far as I know the game doesn't end unless you press C or lose but I'm not sure about that. 
       
      I actually spent good amount of time playing the game until... he.. slept during one of the rounds and made a very evil sound, not gonna lie I was caught off guard when I saw him sleeping and then suddenly he started smiling while the screen was inverting. Took me a while when I realized that this is him being mischievous and he wouldn't let me continue playing! By that time he stopped doing it so when I went and checked his Devil Power or DP is increased to 50, that means 10 more points were added because I didn't take any action quicker! 
      After that happened I thought I need to keep an eye on this little devil because I'm not allowing this to happen again, so I did that and made sure that every time he misbehaved and tried to be mischievous I will discipline him which is exactly what happened  
      This is him being naughty and not allowing me checking his health status after he beeped: 

      that was the only time I was able to take a pic of how often and quickly he will pull pranks on me which makes me laugh every time I see him sabotaging the games, not allowing me to check his status or even rejecting the food when he calls for it!  
      That helped me reduce his Devil Power a lot a long with 'Shaking Hands' with him. Randomly he will beep while looking at me and giving me a lovely little evil smirk which basically means that he is being friendly and wants peace:

      Ultimately, all I want to trigger is a 'Good End' and a good looking character when he reaches his final stage, all that can be done if I manage to discipline him and make sure the friendship level between us is good. Only time could tell we should just wait and see...
      The Magical Witch:
      After inserting the batteries oh my I couldn't believe I'm actually starting my very first Magical Witch that happens to be the air witch, also called Baluluna. After setting the time I waited for about 5 minutes to finally have my witch arrive! Also I would like to say that the animation is beautiful when there is a moon on the side of the screen that keeps rotating until your witch arrive, thought that was a perfect intro that suits the theme of the toy  

      She was hungry and wasn't feeling well (as she should be I mean who take 5 minutes to show up) I fed her some seeds and snacks to fill her meters up.
      After settling her down, I went and searched about mixing the ingredients to create potions because that's what Magical Witches are about, using magic to either curse or cure another witch. I tried the first time mixing the very first potion that you can make and things did not turn out well...

      the first attempt as you can see above didn't end well, while using the mixing bowl my witch looked funny when suddenly the potion exploded at her haha! She looked a bit sick and it took me a lot of time to actually figure out how to cure her from the explosion and turned out one of the seeds she has in store can actually cure her but needed to be used multiple times. I decided to give her a break for few minutes and go for another try one more time. This time she did well by mixing the ingredients well and we got what we wanted for our very first mix which is mushrooms:

      Each time you successfully mix the ingredients you will get three pieces from the same mix. I gave my witch another break and made sure she is fed and healthy before going for the second potion she has to make. 
      The second mix went very well and it took only one attempt:

      As can be seen, the second item she obtained is a broom, which will help us obtain the third item/food that we will try to mix tomorrow.  
      Paying attecntion to her MP or Magical Power could give us a really good results with the witch behavior and how well she could produce different mixtures, if there's another witch involved that will help it increase even faster but we should be alright with just one.
      The End:
      That was all it for today, I personally am enjoying them both equally and I believe the more is yet to come. Although my Devil keeps beeping while it's asleep as I'm writing this it beeped more than 5 times (now it's 3am where I live) I've always loved the fact that you need to take care of a Devil and that didn't disappoint especially that I have terrible history with vintage tamagotchis but this one is different I can tell.  The Magical witches don't necessarily function as a Tamagotchi but they do look alike. For example the icons are similar, the buttons and how they respond is the same and I think the overall it's simpler gameplay wise. Definitely excited to see what we can do tomorrow so stay tuned.  
      this is the end of today's log, hope you guys enjoyed it please feel free to comment about anything.

      Hey guys!
      The long-anticipated moment has arrived..
      I got my very first Tamagotchi!
      It is the Magic White version of the Tamagotchi ON.
      So in this log, I won't be posting pics, sadly.
      LET THE LOG COMMENCE!
      Friday, 27/11/2020.
      I started up my new Tama, filled in everything, and got ready for my egg to hatch!
      It hatched into.. a girl, which my dad named Daisy. 
      I took care of it, then it took a nap for, like 3 minutes. I woke up the screen to see that it had pooped on the spot.
      Not long after, it had evolved into Chiroritchi, a good care character!
      So I immediately got to getting out and earning gotchi points.
      That's it for now, see ya next time! >w<

      Hello, hello, I'm a long time fan of tamagotchi but a new member to tamatalk! 
      I decided to start a log for the lavender Wonder Garden tamagotchi I just got, which was one part a nostalgia purchase and another part mental health purchase. As silly as it sounds, tamagotchis helped me through depression  and anxiety as a kid. They're very much security blankets to me. 
      However this log won't really record my mental health, just the tamagotchi so don't worry about that.

      Forgive my phone's crummy camera, but I got a baby girl! I've always been more partial to female tamas personally!
      Also yes, that is my personal art! I find tamagotchi's simple designs lend well to being good warm up sketches so expect seeing some doodles my tamas now and then.

      So this morning my Hashizoutchi died at 18 years old.

      It was the longest that I've managed to keep a Tamagotchi ever as far as I can remember. It was on the Tamagotchi Game Boy game, on which I'm playing what I decided to label the "PoorBoy's Tamagotchi". The rules are that you can only take care of your Tamagotchi if the in-game clock matches your real-life clock. I've made a post about it here:
      https://www.tamatalk.com/IB/topic/199133-how-to-make-tamagotchi-for-game-boy-more-like-a-real-tamagotchi/

      Upon its death I was labeled a genius by some stranger aliens who took Venus to their home planet.

      Apparently they have the ability to revive dead Tamagotchi so Venus was revived and made an Honorary Member of... something lol. They dressed him up weidly and that's last time I saw him.

      So as promised, here is my log (@Penguin-keeper) . I'll be covering mostly the 3 Tamagotchi games on Game Boy. I'll be trying to get every character in every game, which I'm sure will keep me occupied for a long time. I'll also mix in some Android virtual pet apps so that the log will hopefully remain fresh and interesting.
      I'm starting with Tamagotchi 1 on GB, since for the time being it's my favourite of the 3 Game Boy games.

      As you can see I've already picked 4 of the eggs, with Venus being the 4th. It's time to hatch that green one which I'll be naming Gaia (I'm uninspiringly naming them after planets, before Venus was Mercury). I wonder what happens when you hatch all the eggs and the last one dies, there has to be a cinematic or something, we'll see.

      So here is Gaia. Since I've been raising Tamagotchis since a very long time and know all the rules, I'm adding myself a new rule to spice things up: for this run, I'm not allowed to check Gaia's stats apart from its age and weight. In real life, your pet or kid doesn't have a hungry and happy meter, you have to guess how it's feeling.
      I've also decided thar Gaia will be a nerd, I'm only going to give it Math training. The only exercise it will be doing will be to maintain its weight. We'll see how it'll grow up and how long it'll live with this education.
      I think that's all for today, I'll try to post everyday if my schedule allows.

      At this point for me, it's less of a tradition to keep a log than it is to start one. Half of the posts on Tamatalk are just going to be all my unfinished logs! ;A; But not this time, my dear readers. For I have dug out a Tamagotchi version that is very special to me, and with... a lot of hesitation, actually, have started it up for the first time in what feels like forever!
      As the title may give away, I am running (and logging!) my pink iD L! Back when I first joined Tamatalk, these were very popular, and also everywhere unlike the listings you see today. I got both my iD Ls - the aforementioned pink version and my now-rare Princess Spacey ver - back in 2013 for less than $100 each, and I'm glad I did because nowadays, oh boy do you have to sell your own soul to get your hands on one mint in box.
      Of course, this comes with its own issues - being that I've had these for seven years now, they've accumulated a ton of scratches, which is where most of my hesitation comes from. For those who aren't in the know, colour Tamagotchis - particularly their screens - are highly prone to scratches if you're not careful, and they can show up real easily on the screen as these annoying rainbow-like textures. My 4U and m!xs have managed to stay safe, luckily, but my iD Ls and my precious little P's have not had the same luck nor fortune. And don't even get me started on their front faceplates - I'd be able to actually afford a mint iD L with the amount of scratches they have.
      However, it is all cosmetic in the end. And it's not like I'm ever getting a new iD L unless I risk it for a used version, so I may as well take you all down with me. I've got a Pac-Man Anniversary Mini/Nano in the mail right now as we speak, so with a little patience I'll hopefully be able to log it soon!  Let's begin!
      ~*~*~*~*~*~
      iD L
      I put some new batteries in a few days ago, and was welcomed by a little Kingyobotchi! For those not in the know, they are the best-care female toddler character on the iD L. I also discovered that my iD L was on its 3rd generation last time I played it - I had previously raised a Kikitchi and an Agetchi, respectively, both of which are bad-care adult characters.
      Determined to take good care of my next Tamagotchi, I proceeded to get the next highest-care teenager, Painaputchi - and didn't look at a growth chart, which is extremely rare for me! I ended up raising an adorable little Chamametchi:

      I forgot how photogenic the iD L was. You can't even see any of the scratches on it's screen!
      (While writing this, I realized I hadn't given Chamametchi a name yet! I searched up the nearest random name generator, and blessed her with the title of London.)
      While Chamametchi isn't the... highest care character out there, she's still very cute (and not a teen, strangely). I decided to go for her Tamatomo Stamps - for those who don't have an iD L, every adult 'gotchi has three special likes that cause them to do a cute little animation + give you what's dubbed a Tamatomo Stamp. You earn the last Tamatomo stamp by having your adult-stage Tamagotchi for 72 hours (or, at least 5 years old, if I recall correctly). You can earn any Tamatomo Stamp in any order, and they're a fun little incentive to spend more time with your tama! Plus, it also gets them stamped in the memory book (which is how I discovered the previous tamas I raised), as well as a bonus cutscene when they get married. 
      Anyway, I decided to go for London's Tamatomo Stamps straight away! We decided to head to the park, as the market was currently being held:

      It's Kuchipatchi's mum! What she's doing here, I have no idea.
      Items at the market are usually marked down by 30%, so I wanted to get a good deal. I accidentally ended up leaving by way of the C button with London in tow.

      It was raining outside when I took this photo! Who knew Tamagotchi Planet had the same weather cycles... and timezone... wait a second.
      We decided to visit again later - for now, it was off to the TamaDepa to get something I thought London would like. The hunt for her Tamatomo stamps was on! I rarely search for these without consulting a guide, so there was an exciting factor to our adventure.
      I quickly swept into the accessories aisle, and bought London a pair of cat ears! It was time for the moment of truth...
        
      ...I mean, she's still happy at least?
      Unfortunately, it was not meant to be. If your Tamagotchi's latest item/accessory/food is Tamatomo-worthy, they'd usually start jumping high in the air with hearts everywhere! But London was quite mellow. She still defied gravity in her celebration, though.
      I didn't want to stop there, however - maybe an outfit was what London was looking for! We went back to the market again, as outfits can be super expensive:
       
      It's Makiko's mum! ...I just remembered that Makiko's name doesn't end in 'tchi'.
      I was running low on money, so we sold off the Tamamori Tree item I got out of the toy seed I planted in London's backyard yesterday. Don't ask.
      Anyway, we had enough money to buy London a lovely red kimono:
       
      I forgot how fun it was to dress up your tamas on the iD L...
      And thus the moment of truth began once again!

      Guess what happened next.
      ...And yet it also was not meant to be! Not only had I spent a ton of gotchi points on two outfits that weren't Tamatomo-worthy, now London looked like a weird anime character. She didn't seem to mind though.

      One last photo before the post gets too big...
      I decided to stop our Tamatomo hunting there for now. I took London to the different locations in the food menu, but none of the meals and snacks there seemed to activate a Tamatomo Stamp... not even the sweetest treats around! ...That, and it ended with me accidentally discovering Chamametchi's least favorite food. By then my pockets were totally empty. I'm sure I'm missing something here... maybe I should be more open to London's tastes and stop assuming that all she likes is pink stuff just by the colour of her ears? The irony is real.
      Next post: more stamp hunting! Meeting a Tama-pet at the park enough times to create a bond with them and take them home... I missed those guys on the 4U and m!x, they were useless but I loved them anyway!

      Hey guys!
      I've been thinking of getting a tama for a long time now, and one time I just felt like getting a knockoff. Just to see how vpets are like.
      But, speculations..
      I mean, why not just get a real one? They're much better than the knockoffs anyway!
      Can you guys please help me?
      Thanks~
