rjalda100's Long Lived Oldie Log

Recommended Posts

Hello! It's been quite some time since I last logged here or was even active at all but I've decided to resume logging with something I've been wanting to try again for a while.

I'm not sure how many people remember my first log (it was back in 2016, after all), but quite a bit of it centered around a V3 I was raising as an oldie. I ended up keeping that V3 alive for well over a (human) year, and for quite a bit now have been wanting to try it again. I actually did do it last year with one of my V2s, an Ojitchi named Ricky who accidentally died at age 105. Well now, I'm ready to raise another oldie. I chose this tropical V2 to house it:

I chose that tama because it is already pretty worn, and when I run oldies I take them everywhere with me. So I won't have to worry about this one getting scratched up or faded because it already is. I initially was going to reset it and start fresh, but I last left off with a Ginjirotchi on it and Ginjirotchi is one of my all time favourite characters. I couldn't possibly bear to reset one. So instead I married her off and her baby boy will be the future oldie:

I'm thinking of naming him Ricky, which is also what my previous V2 oldie was named. Ricky the 1st lived to be 105, so maybe Ricky the 2nd can have even better luck! For now there's not much to be done with this tama, but I'll be back to update again once he is left on his own.

Hello! As promised, I'm back with some updates as my previous character has left and I now have Ricky, oldest tama to be, in my care.

Before I begin with the main part of the log, I wanted to share a bit about my previous oldies that I've had - I love raising oldies, and Ricky will actually be my fourth long lived one. My first ever oldie run was my blue bubbles V3, Ilse, who to date remains the oldest tama I have ever raised and probably one of the oldest Connection era tamas to live - I don't know anyone else who has actually gotten as far. She lived to around 390 or so before I deactivated her because life was getting too busy at that point and I was worried about her dying. She never actually died, but has been in stasis ever since and probably will remain that way. I was digging through old photos and found this one that I had taken on her 365th birthday, or her first human year:

spacer.png

I kept her going for about another month after I took that photo and then stopped. For the next two years after it, I didn't run any more oldies, but then early last year I had been running a pair of twin V2s and they both turned into Ojitchis accidentally after I kept missing the matchmaker. They were named Jazz and Ricky and this was them at age 50:

spacer.png

Unfortunately, Jazz died the next day at age 51 after I'd changed his time while I was at work and forgot to change it back after I got home. Ricky, however, survived another 55 days and made it to age 105, only my second tama ever to surpass the age of 100. I took this on the day he turned 99:

spacer.png

Amazing that he survived that long when he was never intended to be an oldie in the first place. His oldie-hood was accidental, but I still wanted to see how far he could go. 105 was a great run indeed and his death was equally as accidental - he died because I forgot to turn his light out one night and he'd already been sick a few times so he was already weakened by that point. Single most important thing if you are running oldies: turn that darn light off because they can only handle so many care misses before it's essentially game over.

Now, onto the actual main focus of the log. Yesterday was a rather uneventful day as my previous generation Ginjirotchi, Agnes, was still sticking around. Here she is on a little UFO vacation with her son:

At 11:59pm, however, it was finally time for her to depart. Here she is saying goodbye to baby Ricky before departing, and then Ricky in the morning after he realized he was all alone:

spacer.png  spacer.png

At 9:05am, Ricky was named and ready to start his new life:

 

spacer.png  spacer.png

Just like Ricky the 1st, Ricky the 2nd will not be a first generation oldie. He is actually the 6th generation; I believe the first Ricky was 3rd or 4th generation. Him being the 6th generation means that he got some good care/healthy genes passed down to him. He's the child of two good care parents, so when it was time for him to evolve into a toddler, he evolved into:

spacer.png

Kuribotchi! One of the healthiest toddlers on the V2 and also one of the cutest. For now he's quite chill and not doing too much, not that tama toddlers ever are too eventful. I did get bored last night and made this case for his shell:

spacer.png

Not perfect by any means but it's soft and provides the shell with a little extra protection so it's not being banged around. This is going to be a long-term run, so I figured I wanted at least some kind of case on it. I have some of the hard shell ones, but I wanted something soft. So this shall suffice. Anyway, this log entry is getting long enough so I think I shall end it here. Thank you everyone who liked my previous post, I'm excited to share Ricky with you all and I'm hoping he has it in him to stand up there with some of my previous oldest tama records. Until next time, bye for now!

Back again with another update. Yesterday was rather uneventful as Ricky was in the toddler stage and didn't do a whole lot. I did take advantage of the nice weather, went out for a walk, and brought him along:

spacer.png  spacer.png

Unfortunately, one kinda bad thing happened. I dropped my V2 and the battery became dislodged, which meant I had to reset and download Ricky. The last save point had been nearly 5 hours prior when he'd first evolved into a toddler, so he lost almost 5 hours of growth time. He didn't evolve into a teen until 2:30pm today, even though he would've normally evolved at 10am. He also won't age up now until nearly 5 hours after he's supposed to. For some reason, it's STILL saying he's 0 years now even after he's evolved into a teen. Weird glitch and I suppose a lesson that I should probably be more careful.

Anyway, as I just said, Ricky is now a teen. He evolved about 15 minutes ago into...

spacer.png

Young Mimitchi! Continuing along with the good care pattern. I'd been hoping for Ichigotchi, my favourite character, but Young Mimitchi will suffice. We checked the shop and there was an action figure in it - I'd previously only had the bear on this tama, which Ricky didn't like playing with as it is meant for girls. The action figure made him much happier:

spacer.png  spacer.png

Not sure which adult I'm aiming for - a full sized Mimitchi would be cool, but I'm not quite so sure I have it in me to go for perfect care. I may just give the care I'd normally give and let Ricky surprise me. V2s can definitely be pretty unpredictable at times and sometimes it's fun to just sit back and let it surprise me.

It's been a busy few days and I don't have pictures today because I'm too tired to transfer them onto my computer. I'll very likely be back tomorrow and will post them then. Ricky is still doing just fine, he's 4 years old now and evolved into a Dorotchi! I absolutely adore Dorotchi, so I'm glad I got an adult character I really like because I'm obviously going to be keeping him right through to age 10 and not marrying him. Also, his aging troubles seem to be resolved. He's still 5 hours behind because of the reset and download, but he's the age he's supposed to be which is 4 today so I'm no longer worrying. 

That's all really, not much else to report. The V2 life is an easy one indeed - it's always been my favourite tama to run when I'm especially busy because it doesn't need a whole lot and can survive just fine on the bare minimum care-wise. But yeah, that's pretty much all there is to update on. Ricky's fine and surviving on the one checkup every 2-3 hours I typically give him. His weight's a bit high because I've been stuffing him with snacks a lot, but that's about it. Until next time.

Whew, long time no update. I've just been really busy but the good thing is that Ricky is still around and I've been caring for him without issue. I mentioned in my last post that for his adult stage he'd evolved into a Dorotchi, and here is a photo I took during that stage:

spacer.png

I sadly did not take many pictures while he was in this stage, which I regret because Dorotchi is one of my favourite characters. He has now been an oldie for about a week; this is how he appears now:

spacer.png

Unfortunately, battery mishaps have led to his age getting a bit behind. I was having some issues with this tama at the beginning because it kept shutting off and sometimes would tell me the battery was dead even with a brand new battery. I opened it up and cleaned the battery contacts and that seems to have fixed the problem, for now at least. Fingers crossed it doesn't happen again because I'd really like for this tama not to be defective on me. 

spacer.png

Ricky's "official" age, how it appears on the tama, is 15. However, he would actually be 18 if the battery glitches had not happened. For convenience's sake, I'm going to keep going by what the tama says, even though he is in fact older. 

Not much else to report on, really. The senior stage is perhaps the most laid back stage of any tama - Ricky only requires care about every 3-4 hours (he drops one hungry heart and one happy heart after this time). He has never been sick and has never had a care miss - not once from the time he was born. Because of this, I think he has it in him to go for a long time. I will try to update as often as I can, mostly to help keep track of his age and whatever else I feel like sharing. Until next time, bye!

      Entry #001 
      Hello and welcome to KeroPyontchi's new-and-improved Tamagotchi log! 
      This is Mochi. She is the third generation of three girls in a row on this v3 here. She is also the third Tamatchi I have gotten in a row! Nonetheless, I am determined to take good care of her because her grandmother was a Masktchi, and her mother a Warusotchi (pineapple looking gal), both considered "horrible" care adults. 13 year old me would be shaking right now! Maybe now that I know other Tamaparents are reading this it'll push me to take better care of mine. A log with only the worst care characters over and over would be way too repetitive and boring.

      (Please excuse any formatting issues as I get the hang of this again)  
      I'm currently on the hunt for the next Tamagotchi or virtual pet to add to my collection rebuild. There's a lot to consider here in terms of budget, what version to get, where to buy from, ect. I'm not in a hurry to rebuild my collection too quickly since I know I'm an impulsive person. I also have some sort of color Tamagotchi back at my parent's house, I'll have to look back on my old logs to see what version it is, and maybe I can run that one too!
      Not really much else to say today, I'll update tomorrow when Mochi evolves. 
      Until next time, thanks for reading  ₍˶ˆ꒳ˆ˶₎✼:♡*゚✿

      not a big deal to most, but when i was a kid i just could never manage to keep my tamagotchis alive long enough to get them married, not to mention i only found out what 'bonding' was halfway through the first generations teenage hood; so on the first day of the second generation i spent hours getting the bonding to 100%!

      Hey gang, I'll make this short.
      Recently, I got myself an Entama (it's the shell design below, PLUS the beads which are easily the best part) after not knowing where my 4.5 was for ages because I wanted to play again, and uh.. the version one rereleases are pretty good but you basically have to let them die after a while, and I do not have the heart for that. Eh well.

      I do not speak or read a lick of Japanese, so this'll be fun.
      So, introducing.. AKIRA! Or, as it's put into the system, あきら.

      <-- he started life looking like this lil' fella (Kuchiotchi) and due to the way the Entama characters work, his appearance was pretty much set. I guess I have a soft spot for Kuchis now.

      In less than a day, he got these stubby lil legs, and looked like a takoyaki! He also started preschool and learned to dance. By this time I'd already started training him in the Kindness GUTS points so he'd get the right teacher as a teen.

      A couple of days ago, he grew into a Young Kuchipatchi (guess I took good care of him?) and earned the privilege of arms. He started school in Kindness, still grinding those GUTS points. I also got him a trampoline which he really likes. Thank all that is holy for the continued existence of the EnWarehouse program or I wouldn't have been able to get most if any of the right stuff. Man, I miss TamaTown every day of my little life. I don't do much anymore to note, but he did come with me for groceries.

      When I woke up this morning, my young lad evolved into a full grown Kuchipatchi! Ah, they (literally) grow up so fast. He still goes to school at the moment, but soon he'll have to get job hunting. Hoping for the Onsen job but I think he'll do just fine in anything he does. Then, it'll be time to find a partner. Oh man, they get so big so quick..
      Well, that's all for Mr. Akira for now. He says "hello" and to have a nice day.

      Hey everyone! It's been a while hasn't it? Seriously, I can't believe the last time I was on this site I was 17 years old whew time sure flies by! I recently went back to my Tamagotchi M!x after watching a Tiktok lol so I figured I would start a new tamagotchi log here.! So! Let me introduce you to my Tamagotchi~ I'm hoping to later bring back my other Tamagotchis but I need batteries rip 
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      Name: Alice
      Type: Bellchi
      Stage: Baby
      Gender: Female
      Happiness: Cyan
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      Apparently Alice wants to be a bit of a pain in the butt because as soon as she hatched she decided she would be depressed and wouldn't stop untill I gave her a bunch of sweets....and then after that proceeded to begin going to the bathroom every 5 seconds.  

      Then before I knew it though she grew up into Bellchi! Admittedly I didn't take the best care of her cuz most of the time she was a baby I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to connect it to the M!x website (I eventually figured it out but apparently Bellchi cannot identify flowers for the life of her). Luckily I actually quite like Bellchi cuz she is pretty cute! Nice to have a reminder of the old Tamagotchi log I did like 4 years ago now. Anyway, sorry this log was rather short, I started Alice up fairly late so unfortunately she has decided it's time to sleep no but I'll try keep this updated as much as I can!

      Hello everyone  My name is KuchipatchiPod or you can say Pod for short. I am new here but saw the log forum and decided to give it a try
      I've mentioned in other threads, but recently my father delivered to me my original 97 P1 Tamagotchi that I played with as a young tween. I decided to get some batteries for it, and while I was at it, grab a Japanese OG P1 so I could try to get Oyajitchi. I'd always been interested in collecting Tamagotchis, and my friend sent me a link to where you can buy the new Digimon ver20th vpets. I had to grab one. Then you know how online shopping goes... you get a little carried away sometimes. I had just received a Twitch payout and decided to blow it all on Tamas and Digis. I grabbed up six Digimon total (one of each variation, and then a sixth so I could ge thte "connect to 5 unique devices" mons... )
      After playing with my new Tamas and Digis for a bit, I decided I wanted some "fresh" Tamas, as my OG ones have seen better days. So I ordered a rerelease P1 and P2... Definitely going to stop for now because I'm quickly depleting the little bit I have in my bank account...
      At first it was just the two Tamas and a yellow Digivice. But then my purple one came in (for some reason the other 5 got shipped in two different packages despite buying them all together) early in the morning, so I decided to open it and play with it, even though it's the same "variation" as the yellow one. But I was eager to start another Digimon. Then the others came in later in the day. I was feeling obsessive and wanted to try out some of the other ones, too. Since the black and white ones have forms that can Jogress with each other, I decided to open BOTH of those. Bringing me to a whopping total of 6 active pets. 
      So let's meet the crew...

      I named each device (I'm not going to name each individual monster/creature). In the Digimon, you actually get to type in the names, so I was limited to 4 characters, but with the Tamagotchis you don't enter a name, so I just refer to them by the names I gave them.
      Tyson is the translucent blue Tamagotchi shell. He's my OG P1 from when I was a kid. I started him on the 19th after learning I could take him apart and clean him out (thanks to the members here!) Takao is the all-white Tamagotchi shell. He's the OG JP P1 that I ordered from eBay. I started him on the 20th when I got him in the mail. Kudos to you if you get the naming theme of the two Tamas. THAO is the translucent yellow Digivice. It's the first one I received when I thought I was only buying one of them. I started it on the 19th when I first got it in the mail after trying to get Tyson to hatch before learning I could clean him out, so THAO has been the longest-running pet so far. META is the translucent purple Digivice. It's the second one I received and started early in the morning of the 21st because I was eager to start another Digivice. POD is the black Digivice with white buttons. It was the third Digimon to get started, after I got my shipment of the rest of the Digivices that I had ordered on the 21st. TRAN is the white Digivice with black buttons. It is the most recently started one; I waited til the Baby stage of POD was finished before starting it so I wouldn't get too overwhelmed. I decided to take a photo of each evolution I get in the P1s, so I can have photographic evidence that I got each 'gotchi. My goal is to see all twelve forms!
      My memory is kind of bad so I think the timeline here is a bit off, but I'm trying to make it as accurate as possible as to the last three days.
      MAY 19th - THE BEGINNING
      The 19th was easy as I was only caring for the THAO for the first part of the day, enjoying my first little Koromon. Later in the evening, after learning I could clean out my Tama, I started raising the newly-revived Tyson. Babytchi is so needy! Koromon hardly needed any care, so I was focused completely on Babytchi. It was getting pretty late, so when Babytchi went to sleep, I thought it was done for the night. I sat it aside and got online to watch some Twitch. Then a bit later I heard him crying out! To my surprise, there were four poops and a sick Babytchi waiting for me. I nursed the poor little guy back to health, and that's how I re-learned that Babychi takes a nap shortly after hatching instead of going to sleep for the night.
      Finally, Tyson evolved into Marutchi! Then I was wondering why it was not falling asleep for the night, as it was after 10PM. I checked his clock and realized I had mixed up the AM/PM. Oops! I fixed it and Tyson fell right to sleep.
      MAY 20th - TAMAGOTCHI DAY
      The 20th was an exciting day because my Japanese Tama was set to arrive in the mail! I anxious awaited its arrival while keeping an eye on THAO and Tyson. It was pretty easy as Marutchi is not nearly as needy as Babytchi, and I was having fun checking on THAO every now and then because I was still feeling quite obsessive and not wanting to do much else.
      Takao finally came in the mail in the early afternoon. Sadly, I was not able to get his battery compartment open because the screws are stuck! But the existing batteries, despite being 25 years old, seemed to work when I pulled the tab out, so I gave him a reset and started to care for him. Another needy Babytchi... The screen would fade in and out sometimes shortly after pulling the tab, but since then it seems to be running fine. Eventually, Takao evolved to Marutchi as well and it was easier to keep track of them.
      I decided to try an experiment, since Tyson's buttons are particularly hard to press. I would raise Tyson's happiness only by feeding candy, and Takao's happiness only by playing games. Let's see how they evolve!
      THAO's Koromon evolved to Agumon and I was able to start another egg! I picked the horizontal stripey one because I knew it could evolve into Kunemon eventually, which is my favorite Digimon. I had to be careful to neglect Tokomon just the right amount to get three care mistakes. I didn't want to hurt the poor thing any more than that. Once I got the mistakes, I took good care of him well.
      MAY 21st - DIGIMON DAY
      Normally I wake up around 10-11AM, but on this day, Tokomon decided to cry at 730AM! I can't believe the Digimon wake up so early! Thankfully, the cry did not wake up my husband, who is a pretty deep sleeper. I waited 10 minutes to get my final care mistake I needed, and then started taking good care of Tokomon. Later in the day, he evolved into a beautiful Kunemon.
      Earlier in the afternoon, my package arrived with META, my purple Digivice. I was originally going to put this one away and just play with one of the Black or White ones when they came in, for a total of two Digimon. But while waiting for my package to come with the rest of my Digimon, I got so anxious to play that I ended up opening up the purple one anyway. I neglected Koromon just enough to get him to evolve into Betamon (so I could have two different mons).
      Later in the afternoon, my other package came in with the rest of my Digimon. I still wanted to have a type A or B digivice running, so I decided to open POD. Hubs was taking a nap, so I decided to stay in the guest bedroom and take care of my pets while playing phone games. This way the sound wouldn't bother him while he slept. Without much else to do, I was checking my pets constantly, and felt like there wasn't enough to do with the pets. So I decided to open TRAN. Maybe I was making a big mistake, running so many pets at once...
      I was having so much fun with my pets, but the buttons on Tyson and Takao were kind of hard to press, making me have to exert my thumb more than I would like. So I decided... why not get even more pets? So I ordered a P1 and P2 rerelease to be delivered on the 23rd...
      MAY 22nd - THE FIRST FULL DAY OF 6 PETS
      And that catches us up to today  Outside of getting the Child/Rookie stages of the Digimon I wanted (since I really wanted Betamon and Kunemon), I'm trying not to use any guides or help. I did look at a P1 growth chart to make a checklist of all the forms you can possibly get on the P1. I'll try to update if anything major happens from here on out.
      CAPTURE PROGRESS

      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.
