I decided to do this because Rensa made a Tamagotchi v4 Guide ((https://www.tamatalk.com/IB/index.php?showtopic=94696))

(Some of you may not be able to see the smiles because your not using Mozilla Firefox..)

What do when you first get your Tamagotchi V3

  • Pull the tab that you see sticking out from the side. You should hear a 'bing sound'.
  • Then you should see a Egg
  • It should hatch in about a few minutes.
How to tell the Gender:

What is a Tamagotchi v3?

In North America it is called a Tamagotchi Connection Version 3 and in other places it's called a Tamagotchi Connexion Version 3. New characters and more games are released, also you can get passwords from a site called tamatown. Also you can earn cool items like souvenirs, and you can travel, and etc.

(Prototype they don't really look like this on the game only on the v1's and v2's)

Black = Boy [SIZE=17pt]☻[/SIZE]

White = Girl [SIZE=17pt]☺[/SIZE]

Each time your tamagotchi evolves they will get a new game!

Here's a growth chain

Teletchi (girl) -> Tamatchi -> Hashitamatchi -> Kuchipatchi -> then a oldie (Otokitchi)

Controls: A- Move (1st button)

B- Select (2nd button)

C- Cancel (3rd button)

Getting Started

Health/Stats (Meter Icon, First Icon)

When you go to this option you should see a 'Hunger' and 'Happy' section and you should see hearts. Black means it filled and white means some parts are empty. To fill up your tamagotchi's 'Hunger' feed it a MEAL. To fill up your tamagotchi's 'Happy' meter feed it some snacks, play some games, or sometimes when you use items your tamagotchi will turn happy (finding a sunflower in your tamagotchi's PLANT).

The next thing you should see is a 'Training' bar. This shows your tamagotchi obedience.

The next thing you should see is [SIZE=17pt]☻[/SIZE] icon this is how old your tamagotchi is. They will be a year every 24 unpaused hours.

Then you should see a balance beam looking thing. There you will see your tamagotchi's weight.

Then you should see a NAME text. We all know it's your tamagotchi name :p .

Then when you press the B button you should see GENDER text this tells your wheter your tamagotchi is a boy or girl.

The GEN text indciates what generation your tamagotchi is on.

NOTE! Certain tamagotchi's only appears on certain generations for example: Even and odd generations.

Press the B button then you should see a POINT text, with points you can buy items and donate! Also you can play games to earn points, and buy using certain items like shovels, chests, and etc..

Then when you press the B button you should see a USERNAME text this is used through TamaTown. Your usernames depends on what passwords you will get, and etc. You can't have a username like SHELLY and except to get passwords from a username like CHRIS that will work. ;)

Feeding your tamagotchi (Chef Icon, Second Icon)

Meal- Gains your tamagotchi 1 IB (pound) and fills the 'Hunger' meter. Your tamagotchi will not eat meals all the time.

Snack- Gains your tamagotchi 2 IB (pounds) fills up the 'Happy' meter. Beware! That your tamagotchi will get tooth aces, and get over weight.

Bathroom (Toliet Icon, Third Icon)

Clean up your tamagotchi's poop. When you see your tamagotchi squatting (bending down) with wavy lines immediately take it to the bathroom.

Activity (Baseball Icon, Fourth Icon)

Each time your tamagotchi grows they will learn a new game. You should see a GAME option.

The games are:

GET♪- Catch the following notes. DO NOT catch poop. Use the A and C buttons to move.

Bump- A easier way to play the bump game is to make your tamagotchi is to make it fat. When you see a PUSH! text press the B button, make sure the bar level is high.

Flag- When you see a White flag press the A button, when see a Black flag press the C button. BEWARE of small flags, they move very fast and the sound is different. I may be wrong..

Heading- Move your tamagotchi left and right with the A and C buttons. To make your tamagotchi hit the ball press the B button.

TIP Always stay in the middle! :D

Memory- Copy the patterns.

Left Arrow- A button.

Right Arrow- C button.

Up Arrow- B button.

Sprint- Press button to make your tamagotchi run.

ITEM- Watch your tamagotchi play with toys, and etc.

SHOP- Buy stuff with gotchi points!

1. ABBA ACBA = cake

2. BCAB ACBC = steak

3. CBAC CABC = cuckoo clock

4. AABB CACB = RC Car2

5. CACA BABC = stuffed animal

6. ACBB BACC = hairgel

7. BCBC CABA = love potion (honey)

The last of these seven codes that you enter will not give you the item listed with it above. Instead, that item will be replaced with a secret item; a costume. So, if you want the Love Potion, but don't care for the Hair Gel, enter the code for the Hair Gel last.

How To enter shop codes? Quoting from the V3 instruction sheet:

Did you find a secret code?

At the shop counter screen, press button (A).

Then, press button (A) quickly three times.

When the shop owner’s face appears surprised, punch

in the secret code to reveal a new item.

[Note: A = left button, B = middle button, C = right button]

I would like to thank TamaMum, tamadogg, WillowPup, Sherp70, SaltyAJ, and Britt C. for all of their help. Also Natephish for the steak and cuckoo clock codes. Please enjoy them all!!!
