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).

69351405_GamedeHakken!!Tamagotchi-OsutchitoMesutchi(Japan)(SGBEnhanced)-201005-090448.thumb.png.fc023fff0b6796c603350f1f0c6f2df0.png

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.

      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!

      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.

    • By iTamannadi
      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.
