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:

image.png.4172288d45d3b18983536ba0fed2c623.png

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, 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.
    • By Tamacass
      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~

      I should've started this log earlier, but whatever... But at least I have a name for it now! 
      Seeing as I'm still figuring this log out, the format might switch between a normal log and a roleplay sort of log (the tama and me talking to eachother).
      Anyways, I'm on my 23rd gen of tamas now. But meet our current tama, Jazz! 

      Nothing much happened, mostly because Jazz is a little baby and you can't really do much with them.
      Jazz: Hey!
      That's not really an insult. Plus, your only a baby for, like, an hour. 
      Jazz: I guess.. But.. That doesn't mean I have to like it!
      I guess not. 
      Jazz ate a lot, and would occasionally play with his bear. Which makes me wonder, where does the toy bear go once your tama becomes a child? You can't see it in the items, but what happens to it?
      Jazz: What?
      Nothing!
      For a while, Jazz watched YouTube with me and hopped around his room until he was tired and took a lil nap.

      ( DISCLAIMER: This story is entirely fictional.)
      Once upon a time, in the year 2045... 
      Tamagotchis were starting to get boring in the world, and Bandai was starting to get desperate. They had to create a new Tamagotchi. One that would get everyone into the craze again.
      So, they created the UltraTama.
      A Tamagotchi that had all  of the previous Tamagotchi model features in one.
      When they released it, it was a megahit. People absolutely loved them.
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      There was a girl named Hana who was enjoying her new UltraTama very much. She brought it everywhere, and had fun connecting her device with other people's UltraTamas.
      ( To be continued!~)

      Hello hello! I've been lurking on here for forever, but after receiving my wonder garden on, I decided to finally make a log of my own!



      After doing a few resets to get the gym on my Magic on, I got this cute little boy! While you can't name your tama on the 1st generation, I've given this little guy the oh-so-creative name of Squishy.



      Look how cute he is when he sleeps!!! 🥰



      Then he evolved into clubutchi!



      And then he just started playing a little concert, it was cute.

      Also I got him a pet! I'm usually really forgetful about getting my tamas pets, but this time I really wanna play around with it if I can.
