Hi! I needed to do my state testing and didn't want my tamagotchi gen 2 distracting me. He is a 17 year old Mimitchi and very well natured but can be annoying. I remembered that I could pause him and pushed the button on the back with a pencil. Now I am done and my beloved tamagotchi is a pulsating egg and I don't know how to unpause him. HELP!

I am so sorry. You just reset your Tamagotchi. :(

On the Gen 1/Gen 2 (G1/G2) models, you can pause them by going to the clock screen and pressing A + C in tandem. This will pause the clock, and in doing so pause your Tamagotchi. The button on the back of your Tamagotchi does not pause it - it acts as a restart button for your device, deleting your save and, therefore, your Tamagotchi when pressed.

Later Tamagotchis from the Connection V1 (2004) and onwards gives you the option of 'downloading' your Tamagotchi back if you've accidentally reset it, unfortunately the G1 and G2 - being recreations of the original P1 and P2s from 1996 and 1997 respectively - do not.

The only thing you can really do now is raise a new tama. We will all remember your Mimitchi - it sounds like you took really good care of him! ;A;

You can unpause him by pressing a and b button but I suggest instead of pausing him to set the time back so it is sleeping for when you pause it it will set ageing back and will age much slower

Hope it helps

      Hi! I'm not a collector of tamagotchi pets, but I did grow up with them back in 97 (back in the ye olde days lol).
      My first tamagotchi was a what I think is called a P2 or Generation 2. Pretty much the same as the original 96 Tamagotchi but with a few different characters. I also tried out a Tamagotchi connection Version 3 back whey were first released and I loved it, it had a lot of neat pets and a mute/pause which is always good.
      Now, I've been thinking of trying a Tamagotchi again because I really did enjoy them. My first thought was to get an old 97 one from e bay for the nostalgia, but I don't think they have a mute or pause. So should I go instead for the connection version three? It has a lot of neat pets, but I can remember if it relies on Tamatown a lot, I don't want my Tamagotchi to be hindered if Tamatown ever shuts down or upgrades.
      I'm having trouble choosing between the two, what ones do you guys like better?
