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.

So Gaia was born at 10 A.M and at 4 P.M it evolved into Marutchi. I don't think there's a lot to comment about this.

I've been wondering this too - you're a lot closer to finding this out than I am! :o

So here is Gaia.

Is that the Super Game Boy palette that I spy? ;) I don't get to see that on my Game Boy Colours or clones thereof. Looks lovely!

Yup, I'm using "MyOldBoy!". The GBC didn't support coloring GB games, only the SGB did. I'm never sure whether I prefer the colored GB games or the black and green original look they had. I'm mostly keeping it that way out of laziness so far. (I don't really like the fake SGB colors to be honest).

It does, just in a very different way to the Super Game Boy. :lol: The background and sprite layers get two separate palettes applied to them on a Game Boy Colour - you can choose from the pre-sets during the boot-splash. :)

For me, it depends on my mood. :D Sometimes I'll pick a palette (usually the Game Boy Colour's blue offering for Tamagotchi GB, since I like how it looks), but other times I'll just go with pure monochome - though the Game Boy Colour only offers this in Game Boy Pocket greys, rather than original Game Boy greens.

I thought today would be a pretty uneventful day, Gaia was pretty calm during the whole day, but then it evolved into Tamatchi (aka Kirbytchi lol) at 7 PM. It surprised me because I always thought the Marutchi stage lasted 3 days.

I like how it feels embarrassed when it gets answers correct

Also, this is its "computing" face. Imagine a whole class doing weird faces such as this one when the teacher asks a question:

Anyway, with the level of care I'm giving, I'm pretty sure I'm going to end up with Mametchi or Mimitchi. It's interesting how it kinda feels like getting the best characters seems easier than getting the bad or mediocre ones.

So this morning my Birokutchi died in Tamagotchi 3 on GB (I was - and still am- running multiple tamagotchis at once, in fact I still have a 19-yo Tentotchi alive in Tamagotchi 2 and a 15-yo Mametchi on the Android "Tamagotchi Classic" app).

The Tamagotchi 3 death screen is as disturbing as the others. The music that plays almost seems to have out-of-tune notes. I think this game is of a somwhat lesser quality than the other 2. It feels like it was made by another less experimented team. I'll delve into the details of what I don't like about it when I get to it. For the time being, I'm not hatching a new egg on this game. (I'm letting my tamas die without renewing them until I only keep one at a time).

Birokutchi was only 8 or 9 years old, I'm pretty sure her death was due to her sleeping all night right next to her poop and with the lights on. Since she sleeps at midnight and wakes up at 7 AM, I couldn't take care of her since yesterday evening at around 10 PM. Oh well!

Birukotchi isn't even buried, it's just a dead carcass lying upon a grave in a cemetary at night.

Rated E for Everybody? 😄

Indeed, even with X_X eyes, looks like a dead penguin, this should ruin @Penguin-keeper's day when she sees it! :P 

That is quite gruesome considering it's something mostly targeted for kids as their major demographic.

Poor Birokutchi. I'm sure that she had a good life, though - y'know, except for the poop thing. ;)

It's even more "intense" than the Japanese version of the death scene in the first game. And that one's striking enough!

I'll be looking forward to reading your thoughts on it - it wouldn't surprise me if it was indeed a "B team" who worked on the third game, due to how late it came along in both the Game Boy's life and the lifetime of the original Tamagotchi craze.

I've walked a total of 5 miles yesterday which I hadn't done in months (COVID and all). I was so tired it wasn't even funny. But Birokutchi was happy most of her life. In fact, her name was ははははは which I think means "hahahahaha" in japanese. I was surprised that it took so little for her to pass away, her meters weren't even empty!

Well, apart from Birokutchi's death this morning, today was pretty calm. I introduced Gaia to Math tournaments. Of course, she failed. (I've read that they're bound to fail on their first trial - and yeah, she's a female all of a sudden, don't ask). She felt terrible about it!

... so I gave her her first cake ever since she was born to console her.

And that's pretty much all that happened today.

------------

I'm also wondering whether I should log about this:

image.png.98f458fb4094143846eb7d25e2a5a56e.png

I'm not constantly using my PC, but I've been raising this poor thing for about a month (yet it's only 5 days old lol). Reading others' logs made me interested in the latest Tamagotchi releases and I've realized how accurate this unofficial PC version was. I wish I could play this on my smartphone but there doesn't seem to be a simple way to do so. (I also wish I could make the screen bigger).

Yes, I named her PoorGirl because I find it difficult to raise her correctly due to me often being AFK. Besides, I know nothing about how the more recent Tamagotchi releases operate and the game doesn't come with instructions. (I especially didn't understand how to use codes).

Please let me know if you think I shoud cover this.

First thing that happened this morning was this:

PoorGirl evolved from Painaputchi to Masktchi. It reminds me of the masked man in Mother 3. (... very sad memories...). I guess I'll be logging about Tamagotchi PC as often as I play it.

My Tentotchi's on the brink of death. Its 4 hearts are depleting in less than an hour, yet it's still hanging tight!

He's 20-yo today which is the longest I've ever managed to keep a Tamagotchi. If I can avoid care mistakes for just 5 more days then I don't think it's impossible that I'll be able to reach the 25 yo limit... though I wonder how long a Tamagotchi can live on the GB games. Well, maybe I'll be able to find out!

Well, today's been quite a slow news day. With only 3 tamagotchis to take care of, (I'm still not counting Tamagotchi PC because it's not active most of the time), the storm has passed. Besides, I'm raising a Mametchi on the Android "Tamagotchi Classic" app and a Tamatchi on Tamagotchi GB, both of which require very little care at all. Only Tentotchi on Tamagotchi 2 on GB is giving me trouble.

He pulled out the old "I'm gonna poop riiiight before I get to bed so you can't clean it" and accordingly here he is:

image.png.4a81c243bd7707693d218ce45c3ebe96.png

I don't think he's going to survive that 😄. I mean, this is how Birokutchi died right? Plus, the Azaratchi ( Image of Azaratchi. ) that I had on this same game also died for the exact same reason... and neither of them were even 10-yo!

Anyway, Gaia has attempted her second Math tournament and failed at the very last question. This time she wasn't feeling too bad about it so... no cake this time!

image.png.c8f2c0aaa5a41ceb7d0ced8bc9bdaba4.png

I didn't expect Masktchi to remove her mask before sleeping:

image.png.9bd0bfdc5020de5e13948380adfe4a88.png

I'll be taking your advice on how to raise this one because I know almost nothing about the new concepts of Marriage, reproduction, friends, etc. I don't really know what to do with her at the moment. Should I marry her to someone? and how?

------

While we're here, I want to take the opportunity to upload my progression in attempting to obtain every tamagotchi character on every game I'm playing. I'll regularly be updating this as I progress, but I think there has to be a starting point. Actually, I think this will be better as a separate post.

      Hello everyone! I decided to share with you about this game I just recently installed on my phone like a few weeks ago (or maybe a month ago? I’m not sure), it’s called Dunpets! As you can see, I’m crazy about virtual pets and any kind of them! I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one here. I hope it's okay to post about a virtual pet that's not a Tamagotchi... I'll be logging about them soon too!
      After watching Jaiden Animation’s videos about virtual pets and the Pokemon Nuzlocke run, I kinda wanted to play Pokemon too. But seemingly I was getting buried in a pile of assignments, I didn’t think getting into Pokemon again was a good idea. Then I thought about looking for a game that isn't actually Pokemon but is similar… Thus, I stumbled upon Dunpets! It was the combination of what I wanted and needed: taking care of a virtual pet and BATTLING. I was very excited.
      But in the game itself there wasn’t really much to do. I hadn’t really explored all options yet. And as my assignments were piling up and the semester was getting difficult, I paused the game (which only told me I can do so once in my entire life). And now, it’s semester break and I felt like wanting to explore the game again so I finally resumed the game.

      Hello everyone! I finally figured out how to upload pictures (this thread was originally asking about that-) I'm new here and the first thing I want to do is to create a tama log! Upon seeing other people's log, I enjoy them very much and feel so inspired to do my own! 
      I made this little journal noting the progress of the bootleg 168 in 1 virtual pet that I have accidentally adopted and dearly named Tom! Of course, this was an old log. I previously posted these on Reddit and on the Tamagotchi FB group (he’s quite well-loved by a lot of people there too!). So I decided to post about Tom on Tamatalk because I think people here might like to read about Tom and his saga
      This log first started as a joke but later on (and even till this day) I had actually grown a deep attachment to this special bootleg virtual pet named Tom.
      Anyway, enough of the intro- Now I present to you, The Tom Saga: The Misadventures of a 168 in 1 Virtual Pet!

      INTRODUCTION
      hello, my name is deerboy and after a several decade-long break i have finally gotten back into tamagotchi.
      i no longer have my original tamagotchi (perhaps i'll make a new thread when/if i find it), but i recently - literally just today - got a turquoise tamagotchi on.  turquoise isn't my favorite color, but that was the color Target had on sale so thats the one i got.
      CHAPTER 001
      my daughter, a beautiful bouncing LOVEKOTCHI, hatched around 5:30PM my time (AM in her time, because I am somewhat nocturnal lol) today.  she immediately developed a case of discontented anime facial lines, and because i chose not to read the directions, i struggled for a while to figure out how to clear them up.  fortunately tamas are easy to please, so after enough feeding, playing and photography, they cleared up and i knew how to keep them at bay going forward.
      shortly after hatching she turned into a fluffy CUTEHEARTCHI.  it was a good thing i took baby pictures, since they grow up so fast... however, now that she presumably has legs somewhere underneath all that fluff, its time for her to use them.  after a trip to the in-device shop i realized that we didn't have very much GP and i figured it was time that she take responsibility and get a real job.  its a good thing there are ample employment opportunities for children in the tamagotchi world, and i'm happy to report that she's a natural when it comes to picking up flowers in the in-app park and flipping pancakes in the restaurant.
      as of this writing, she has obtained: 2300GP, 2x FRUITS, CREAM SODA, CHICK HAT, RIBBON, CAT EARS, WIG & GLASSES and BUNNY EARS.  not bad for someone whose 5 hours old!

    • By Dame
      Hi! This is a first for me, doing any type of game log. My name is Dame, and I played Tamagotchis when they originally came out, but never that much. I now am busying myself with my Magic Blue Tamagotchi On.
      Currently:
      Hoshipontchi ♂ (First in run)
      Other things to note:
      I am nocturnal, so I have set my Tamagotchi time to be 13 hours ahead of my time. I am using the Tamagotchi On app everyday. I am looking up some information, but not much. I am not planning on getting any certain Tama or anything off the bat. I am fine with being offered tips or advice! I am looking for people to friend on the app who are active.

      Hi! I thought I'd try making a log, since I've always enjoyed looking at them. I might not be terribly active on here, but we'll see!  

      Right now I have a Tengutchi (named Kuma, which means 'bear')! He just got married to a lovely little ninja lady today...


      And here is his little blob son!
    • By blushberry
      When I was a kid, I had this pet and could never get it to grow into an adult. We weren't allowed to have virtual pets at school (this was when they were huge and almost everyone in my class had one!), so I begged my mom to take it to work and care for it... I couldn't even mute it and sneak it with me, because even when it's muted, you still hear the attention beeps and it wants attention every 15-20 minutes or so. However, each time she'd bring it home it'd be dead. I could never get this thing to grow and eventually the batteries died or I lost track of it, but something reminded me of it recently. While looking around, I happened to find a still sealed Bobo Panda Byte for a reasonable price on ebay, so I jumped on it.
      Now that I have a new one, I've figured out why it died so often, so I thought it'd be fun to log my progress into the new stages of growth! I originally joined to ask for help from any other Panda Byte players, but it doesn't really seem like there are any active here at the moment, unless they just never saw my thread. 🙂 Here is my original thread, it shares a bit of info and activities involved for this pet, if anyone is interested.
      Although I'm starting my log now, my panda just turned 5 today. This is a new thing for me, because it had died a few times already (and apparently many times when I was a kid). It seems that from ages 2-4, you just want to have her watch tv to "pause" her stats from changing, because she'll only eat apples and candy during this time, and they don't fill her hunger hearts. She won't eat bamboo and bread (as far as I can tell) until she turns 5, so unless there is some other secret thing you're supposed to do, I just have her watch tv when she's not sleeping. At ages 0-1, she's a baby and only drinks a bottle, plays games, and sleeps, so there isn't much to log for either of those two stages.
      My panda turned 5 at 10:00 this morning, and appears to have all of her activities unlocked. She can now exercise and do the other learning options/activities (hula hoop and swinging), and finally eats bread and bamboo. I haven't had to dress her for the weather yet, but I'm excited to finally try that once I see a weather icon! She will also apparently run away at times when she gets older, and have friends visit, but I'm not sure what age this happens at. Once she's fully grown, she'll get one of 5 or so appearances, so I'm looking forward to seeing which one I get.
      Here is a picture of her wandering around at age 5 (if anyone has suggestions for a better photo hosting service, let me know lol). I'll try to get pictures of her doing some of her other activities along the way.
