Ah, my rival! I'm also going for Sekitoritchi! I've never gotten him before
Here's my two guys, two that I've never run before. I named them Monika (P1 on the right) and Mikhail (P2 on the left).
Monika came with new screws and was easy to open, but she's used and her C button doesn't work properly. I didn't know this until after trying to hatch, then I remembered the ebay listing saying something about pressing the C button with a sharp object lol... I was able to get the clock started by pushing the C button in with a pencil. I need to get in and clean the contacts, but I already started and don't want to restart now XD So new challenge -- how much can we do without ever pressing the C button?! So far I've only had to press it once to start the clock. Since I started her shortly after Mikhail, I can use Mikhail's status to determine how she is doing. I can also just feed until she won't eat anymore to see if she needs to eat, then feed the same number of snacks to up the happiness. I think doing it that way, I won't ever have to press the C button.
Mikhail was unopened, but then I stripped the screw trying to get into him, and now I can't get in at all. I'm really good at stripping screws. Seriously, it's my specialty. It doesn't help that these old JP models have the tightest screws ever of all time. Anyway, he's running on whatever batteries he was packed with, so who knows how good they are. Hopefully he can live long enough to become Sekitoritchi, whom I've never gotten before.
For Monika, I don't have any special plans, just going to do my best and see what happens
Hopefully I can get Mametchi or Ginjirotchi, though part of me wants to intentionally go for Kuchipatchi XD
Here are the buddies after evolving into their child forms
Did anyone else give names to theirs?
