By the way, I forgot to show you Mizutamatchi's sleeping position:

What's that supposed to be? You know what? I think I get it now! Since Mizutama means "rain drop" in japanese, I think that's Mizutamatchi sleeping in a cup that looks like a beer glass or something. Who else agrees?

That's definitely what it is, and it's hilarious! :lol:

aaand Batabatchi just evolved into Pipotchi. That's one step up the TMP ladder. Here's Pipotchi asleep:

IMG-20201024-095251.png

 

What's funny is that Batabatchi normally wakes up at 8:00 but Pipotchi wakes up at 10:00 apparently (it's 9:42 and its still asleep). So basically what ended up happening was that Batabatatchi woke up, evolved, and fell asleep as soon as it did.

So now I need to find a Kabutchi to marry it with to obtain a Puchiteletchi. I think a Chomametchi can also do the trick but I'm not sure that marriage is guaranteed to yield Puchiteletchi.

Anyway, I don't know if I'm going to marry Pipotchi right away or if I'm going to keep it for a day. I don't know how the game selects mating partners, I think it gives the player a choice of three characters, but I don't know how frequently they change. We'll see!

Well, that didn't take long. As soon as Pipotchi woke up, I went to the mating menu, and found a Kabutchi for Pipotchi. I hesitated for a moment, thinking I do want to keep Pipotchi for a short while (to at least see some of its animations for a while before I let it go). However I figured, what if I don't find Kabutchi tomorrow when I decide to marry Pipotchi, so I thought I'd rather marry it right now and keep the momentum going.

Here's Pipotchi merrily jumping in its room

Here's a calmer picture of it

IMG-20201024-111433.png

Here's the Kabutchi I found on the right

IMG-20201024-111451.png

Here are the lovers meeting

IMG-20201024-111501.png

For some reason the game still shows a Billotchi and a Billkotchi having an egg

IMG-20201024-111513.png

After your tamagotchi gets married it goes back to its home planet

IMG-20201024-111523.png

However, I'm kinda bummed out right now because to my surprise, the marriage gave birth to a Tsubutchi (TMP2) rather than a PuchiTeletchi as I intended.

IMG-20201024-111534.png

Now why is that?! Is it because I married Pipotchi too early? Does that factor into what baby you get? Well, at least now I know that that might be the case. It's not too much of a big deal since I've never had a Tsubutchi nor any of its evolutions. However that does mean that I'll have to see Puchichocotchi and Mizutamatchi again in order to get to the TMP4 characters. Well, okay game!

Tsubutchi has just evolved into a Hyurutchi at around 3 PM.

IMG-20201024-160320.png

I'm starting to wonder whether I should start climbing DOWN the TMP ladder instead of up, since there are more characters I don't know down the ladder than up.

By the way, I think I remember reading that in this game each egg can give birth to any TMGC regardless of TMP level. That should be the reason why I ended up having a Tsubutchi instead of a Puchiteletchi. Another design choice I'm not a fan of.

Hyurutchi's the first tamagotchi I've ever had that sleeps at 6 PM!

Hyurutchi evolved into a Hikotchi yesterday morning, I didn't have the time to log yesterday.

This game's going a little too fast for its own sake. I don't think having a 1 yo teen makes any ounce of sense

It should evolve into a Hiratchi tomorrow.

Or not! it evolved mere moments after this post! Is this game for real?

This is a 2 yo adult:

Anyway, this time I'm keeping Hiratchi for at least 24 hours before marrying it, just to slow things down a bit. I'm not really in a hurry to see Puchichocotchi again

This was nonsense. Actually I've now found out that I still don't understand fully how the TMP system works in this game. My knowledge on how the game works comes from here, but if you pay attention, you'll see that there's a lot of missing information. For example, what does the "Message" meter do on the status screen, and what's the point of the minigames?

So this morning I was checking out the TMP screen (which as you can see isn't explained in the aforementioned link), and saw that my Hiratchi now has 3 lit-up crowns on the TMP meter but only 2 lit-up "dragon balls" (they do look like dragon balls from dragon ball Z, don't you think?) on the "Level" meter (the japanese letters mean "reberu" which means level).

IMG-20201027-110350.png

Now, upon starting this run, I first wondered what each meant, thinking "why are there 2 meters for just 1 piece of info (i.e. the TMP level)?". Then for some reason I assumed the top one was just for decoration and the bottom one was the real deal. The top one always showed 2 crowns, which didn't make any sense (I knew my first pets were of TMP level 3 by looking at the growth chart) and the bottom one was stuck on level 3. This made me assume that the top one didn't mean anything, but that's until this morning when I found out my Hiratchi has 3 crowns on the top meter and 2 balls on the bottom meter.

I then came back here to have a second look at my Saturday post and indeed, 

IMG-20201024-111451.png

Both of the parents had 2 TMP crowns despite having 3 "level balls". I'm pretty sure this is the reason why I ended up having a Tsubutchi instead of a Puchiteletchi when they mated. (Tsubutchi is TMP level 2).

So here I am scratching my head over how this might work. At first I thought, the balls display the actual TMP level of the tamagotchi which could potentially be attained through good care, but if that was the case, my Hiratchi couldn't possibly have 3 crowns as you can see in my first screenshot above.This reinvigorates my interest in this game a little bit - there's something new here to be understood.

That was wrong too. It only shows one potential mating partner at a time, BUT they seem to change every time you open the mating menu. And I just had the idea to use the mating menu to study how the crowns and "level balls" (what a weird combination of words!) behave. If the balls display the "absolute" TMP level, that should be pretty easy to verify by checking out on a number of proposed mating partners and checking whether the number of level balls is always the same as the TMP level displayed on the growth chart.

And about the "Message" thing, I asked a weeb friend of mine and told her this should be very easy to figure out if we had a manual, and she said she'll be asking a japanese friend of hers. I'm not expecting too much out of this but, if I get back from her, I'll be sure to let you guys know.

Thanks for reading!

I just married Hiratchi to a TMP3 Pipotchi with 2 crowns and 3 balls, and they gave birth to a TMP1 Kuritchi with 3 crowns and 1 ball.

IMG-20201028-083208.png

 

So the hypothesis that the number of balls represents what the growth chart I'm using labels as "TMP Level" seems to hold true so far (it was never contradicted by data). However, what the number of crowns represents and what affects it remains a mystery for now. And also what TMP level you're going to end up with after breeding, as this time none of the partners had anything to do with TMP level 1!

I think I mostly need more data to figure it out.

I was too tired last night to take care of Kuritchi until it evolves and falls asleep, so I just let it be and went to bed. And to my surprise when I checked on it this morning, I found out that it had evolved into a Hyurutchi (TMP2) instead of a Mohitamatchi (TMP1).

I did not post yesterday because nothing happened really, just Hyurutchi being Hyurutchi.

Anyway about the TMP level "jump" (Kuritchi evolving into Hyurutchi), I'm thinking maybe that was because Kuritchi had 3 TMP crowns so it sort if sacrificed a crown to go up one TMP level.

Hyurutchi has just evolved into a Hikotchi with 1 TMP Crown and 2 TMP Balls. I'm pretty sure by now the balls represent the "absolute" TMP level as can be read from the growth charts.

IMG-20201029-100742.png

 

It also seems that the number of TMP crowns only changes when the Tamagotchi evolves. The fact that Hikotchi only has 1 crown might be due to the fact that I let Hyurutchi sleep by its poop yesterday evening. 

I predict that Hikotchi will be evolving into a TMP1 character tomorrow. We'll see.

Nope!

IMG-20201030-101832.png

Maybe that's because I took pretty good care of Hikotchi yesterday?

Good news is, with 3 TMP crowns this Hiratchi should yield a Puchichocotchi upon mating*. I'm keeping him for 24 hours before mating it so we'll find out tomorrow!

*Not really, I mean I had the exact same Hiratchi the last time and still ended up with a Kuritchi

Well, I married Hiratchi to a Billkotchi with 2 crowns and it yielded a Kuritchi again. I think it has something to do with this:

IMG-20201031-103940.png

Look at Hiratchi's face. It's not just an animation, the first time when it does this the mating process actually stops, and if you repeat it then it does the face again but the mating process continues. I think that's to indicate that the mating process will not yield a higher TMP child.

If things go like the last time, Kuritchi should evolve into a Hyurutchi  again so I'll be able to have yet another shot at having a Puchichocotchi again. And if it evolves into something else that will be good as well since I'll be seeing something new at last.

As expected, Kuritchi has evolved into a Hyurutchi with 2 crowns and 2 balls (i.e. exactly the same as last time), and I bet it's going to evolve into a Hikotchi and then Hiratchi again. I don't think I'm going to log about it if this happens, so there might be less log entries in the next 2 or 3 days. Next time I get Hiratchi, I'll try to marry it to a partner it likes.

      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!

      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.  
    • By Princess Lovelitchi
      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.
