This is a list of every Tamagotchi
virtual pet ever released, in chronological order.
The Tamagotchi Generation One
The original Tamagotchi
was created in 1996 in Japan, all white with black buttons. In 1997 America and Europe got to see this Tamagotchi with seven adult characters, two teen characters, one toddler character, and one baby character, for a total of 11 characters. One adult character is a "secret" character, which means that one cannot get it in the way that one can get the others.
The Tamagotchi Generation Two
The Tamagotchi Generation Two
is very similar to Generation One in terms of programming. The two "generations" have different characters and a different game in each, and a number of other minor differences, such as small differences in the Meal and Snack options and in the animation that is shown at the end of a Tamagotchi's life
Tamagotchi Angel (Tenshitch no Tamagotch)
The Tenshitchi no Tamagotchi
was released in Japan in August 1997 with three different designs, and a later English version, the Tamagotchi Angel
, was released in America and Europe with four designs. Both versions are often referred to as the Angelgotchi
The option to discipline in case of misbehavior which was in the original Tamagotchi was replaced by the option to praise for doing good deeds in the Tamagotchi Angel. The caretaker could not make it do good deeds, however. The discipline meter was replaced by a good deeds meter accordingly.
The Tamagotchi Angel features a sound sensor. Occasionally, when the Angel eats candy, a bat appears and try to take the candy away. The caretaker would then have to either make a loud noise or tap the Tamagotchi Angel unit (which would make a noise which the sound sensor would pick up) to scare the bat away. If the bat successfully took the candy, the Angel's good deeds meter would go down.
Mesutchi and Osutchi
were released in December of 1997
in Japan only. They feature interlocking mating using the same interlocking technology that Digimon
used to connect, in which the tops of each Tamagotchi would lock together so that they could communicate with each other. When a Mesutchi and Osutchi connect in the adult stage, their mating may result to a child.
Both Mesutchi and Osutchi feature 31 characters each. Six different generations of Tamagotchi are available, but only the first one grows in a way that is affected by caretaking skills; the other five are linear. If the caretaker is not responsible in their care for their Mesutchi or Osutchi, the Tamagotchi will become an adult character uninterested in love. If the caretaker feeds the Tamagotchi too much food and it and it becomes overweight, it will turn into a "Debutchi" which takes up the whole screen. In this state, the user can not do anything with the Mesutchi or Osutchi except play the game and check health status. The caretaker then has to lower the weight of the Tamagotchi by playing the game before normal functions may resume.
Tamagotchi Garden (Mori de Hakken! Tamagotch)
The Mori de Hakken! Tamagotch
, commonly referred to as the Mori no Tamagotch,
was released in February 1998
with four different designs. It was scheduled for release in America as "Tamagotchi Garden
" but was not released. This Tamagotchi introduced the "predator" function also used in the later Umi de Hakken! Tamagotch
). Occasionally a predator attacks, and the care taker has to use the sound-sensitive functions introduced in the Angelgotchi by shouting or tapping at the screen to frighten away the attacker. If the attack is a success, the Tamagotchi may become seriously injured or even die.
Another notable function of the Mori no Tamagotchi is the teenager phase: It is replaced by a cocoon, which remains for 24 hours, during which time the care taker controls a temperature dial. If the environment is mostly humid, the Tamagotchi will change into the "warmer" creature for that quality of care, and vice versa for cold weather.
There are two types of eggs that can be selected to hatch in this Tamagotchi. The white egg is more like a traditional Tamagotchi, where it changes based on how it is cared for. The spotted egg always changes into "Kabutchi", the stag beetle, where the goal is to make your pet as large as possible (a "length" meter is displayed to track this).
Tamagotchi Ocean (Umi de Hakken! Tamagotch)
The Umi de Hakken! Tamagotch
in America), often referred to as the Umi no Tamagotch,
was released in March 1998 in Japan in four different colors. It was also released in the United States in 1998 in four colors (though they were different from the Japan colors). This is known as one of the most difficult Tamagotchi to raise, needing near-constant attention. This Tamagotchi includes the "predator" function also used in the Mori no Tamagotch
. Occasionally, a polar bear will attack while the Tamagotchi rests. Therefore, the caretaker has to use the sound-sensitive functions by tapping on the unit or shouting to scare away the predator. Like in Mori no Tamagotch
, if the attack is successful, the Tamagotchi may become very ill and may even die. The Tamagotchi includes a "water quality" meter in the status screen. Flushing the screen makes the screen "cleaner," but if all four skulls on the meter are filled, the water becomes "murky" and it has to be flushed in order to view the Tamagotchi again. This secondary use for the cleaning function is not used in any other Tamagotchi.
was released in April of 1998
in Japan only. It was named after Japanese actress Tamao Nakamura. The Tamagotchi is a movie star. The caretaker trains TamaOtch for movie performances. This was the first Bandai virtual pet to be based upon a humanoid character. The training function is different from most Tamagotchi, in which the caretaker trains the character in different rehearsal situations. There are three routines - Ad Lib/Drama, Acting and Dancing. There is only one design - pink with a white pattern, red buttons and blue screen trim. It also has sound sensitivity; the caretaker can interact with the character by tapping the casing of the unit or making a loud sound. It does not have a calling icon like most Tamagotchi do. Japanese characters flash on the screen when attention is required instead.
Debirutch no Tamagotch (Tamagotchi Monster)
The Debirutch no Tamagotch
, often referred to as the Devilgotchi,
was released in Japan only in September 1998 in four different colors for ¥2079. Some aspects of the care are similar to the Tenshitchi no Tamagotch (Tamagotchi Angel, Angelgotchi), only the Devilgotchi Power is supposed to be kept at a minimum, while the Angelgotchi Power is supposed to be kept at the maximum. Care is almost exactly the same as Angelgotchi, but unlike the Angelgotchi characters, who are eager and do good deeds for the caretaker, the Devilgotchi characters are naughty and play tricks on the caretaker. The Devilgotchi game was almost the same as the Angelgotchi game, but unlike the Angelgotchi game where the caretaker has to help the Angelgotchi jump over the stars, on the Devilgotchi game, the caretaker has to help the Devilgotchi catch the stars in its mouth so it could devour them. It uses a sound sensor similar to the one used in Angelgotchi.
The Devilgotchi was later remade for cell phones, and distributed in Europe as the Tamagotchi Monster.
The Yasashii Tamagotch
was released in Japan in October 1998 in three colors. Acting as an "Easy Tamagotchi", it has slightly different evolutions than the first set of Tamagotchi toys, and also features a larger case. In the place of icons, backlit buttons were used, and the number of buttons at the bottom of the case were reduced to two: Select and Cancel. Today, it is one of the rarest Tamagotchi that exists. It will almost always sell for at least $100 in both retail and auction sites.
is a Santa Claus and Christmas-themed Tamagotchi which was released in December 1998 in Japan only. The Santaclautchi character does not evolve, but can be changed by means of equipping different items. The goal of the caretaker is to prepare Santaclautchi to go to each Tamagotchi's house, assisted by the care taker, and give them a present. If Santaclautchi does not deliver the presents in time, the Tamagotchi in the house gets mad, Santaclautchi gets upset, and the care taker has to start over. Sometimes, Santaclautchi won't feel like being 'Santa' and will selfishly leave the screen. The owner would then have to call "Super Kuchipatchi" to drag him back to the screen.
is also known as the pre-historical Tamagotchi. Genjintchi was released in November 1997, only in theatres playing the movie "Peking Man
", which is the movie the virtual pet is based on. It is very expensive, due to its rarity. The characters are cavemen-like with the appearance of many bones.
There is only one casework style, brown with bones around the screen and the title 'GENJINTCH' on the top in red. Instead of death, the Genjintchi shows the Kanji symbol for 'Kan', meaning 'End'.
The character which the caretaker would have to take care of is a winged beast called Mothra Tamagotch
. It was released in Japan in December 1997, to promote the Rebirth of Mothra
movies. Mothra would hatch as the Larval version of the movie character, and evolve depending on care into one of its super powered forms, such as Rainbow Mothra. The programming is similar to the Morino Tamagotchi.
Godzilla was also a hidden character.
The Tamagotchi Connection
(known as the Tamagotchi Plus
in Japan and the Tamagotchi Connexion
in Europe') was the first modern Tamagotchi released since 1998. The Japanese edition was released on March 20
. The English-language version was released in North America on August 15
It allows players to connect via infrared (known as Tamacom to other players systems and become friends, get married, and produce offspring. The English edition also introduced the "pause" option, which stops growth but continues time within the Tamagotchi unit, until the caretaker resumes play.
Keitai Kaitsuu Tamagotchi Plus (K-Plus)
The Keitai Kaitsuu Tamagotchi Plus
, known as the K-Plus
is as of now the only Tamagotchi capable of connecting to Japanese mobile phones. In order to connect the Tamagotchi with cell phones, cell phone users first have to download a Tamagotchi game onto their phone. Afterwords, when connecting, the Tamagotchi could do many things, such as visit its parents, play games, and even find a mate. It connects to the original Tamagotchi Plus
and the Deka Tamagotchi
models. Ten digit passwords unlock food from each region of Japan and items for the Tamagotchi. The K-Plus
features old characters as well as new characters not in the original Tamagotchi Plus
Tamagotchi Plus Akai
The Akai was released July 23 2005
in Japan. It is similar to the Keitai Tamagotchi but it features mono-color red LCD. There are new red-theme characters including a tomato, daruma, tengu, heart, and cherry, and new red-theme foods including pizza, wine, peaches, and red rice. The games are the same as the Keitai and Hanerutchi Tamagotchi with different graphics. It is capable of connecting with Japanese mobile phones, the Keitai Tamagotchi, Deka Tamagotchis at stores in Japan, the Home Deka, and the Hanerutchi Tamagotchi.
features characters from the Japanese show "Haneru No Tobira" ("You Knock On The Jumping Door") and a small amount of Tamagotchi characters. It debuted in two colors with identical designs (white with green or red stripe and black), and a limited-edition metallic white with blue stripe was later released. It is similar to Keitai Tamagotchi with different characters.
Tamagotchi Mini (Chibi Tamagotch)
The Tamagotchi Mini (known as the Chibi Tamagotch' in Japan) is a miniature Tamagotchi 66% of the size of the original toy which has limited features and is promoted as a fashion accessory.
In Japan, the three colors available were identical to three of the six colors of the original Tamagotchi (pink, light blue, and white). The keychain attachment is a small ball-chain loop. In America, it debuted with four colors (black with flames, light blue, pink, and purple) and several months later followed with four more colors (yellow with dots, purple with dots, a darker blue, and yellow with stripes). The keychain attachment is a short link-chain with a lanyard clasp at the end. In Australia, it debuted with the Japanese colors, chain, and packaging; but had American programming.
There are 7 adult characters and a toddler (Marutchi), which are the same as the ones in the Generation 1 original Tamagotchi. There is also a secret character only available in the Japanese version (Unchi-kun). The English edition replaces him with Ginjirotchi. A special New Year's edition debuted in Japan in 2007, featuring two new secret characters and new foods.
Tamagotchi Connection Version 2
The Tamagotchi Connection Version 2 was released on June 21 2005 in the U.S. It is roughly the English equivalent of the K-Plus, minus the cellphone connection features. The Tamagotchi Connection Version 2 features newer characters and ones taken from older releases, such as the Osutchi, Mesutchi, and the Original Tamagotchi.
"Gotchi Points", or GP, were introduced. GP are earned by playing the games and are used to buy items from a shop. The maximum amount of GP that it is possible to earn is 9999. Caretakers can connect (using IR capability) with other users; the user is able to choose whether to play a game or give a present. The option to connect to either the original
Tamagotchi Connection or Version 2'' Tamagotchi was introduced. Five "codes" are available on the V2 that unlock special items.
Chou Jinsei Enjoi Tamagotchi Plus (Entama)
The Cou Jinsei Enjoi Tamagotchi Plus,
commonly referred to as the Entama
was released November 2005 in Japan. The design features a large antenna with a ball at the end, and a small strand of beads is attached rather than a key chain or mini-strap.
The Entama is the first Tamagotchi to remove two of the Tamagotchi's original primary functions: the discipline and the lights (the Entama turns the lights out on its own at night).
It is the first Tamagotchi with the ability to link to the computer. The user would be able to play with the Entama on the computer by going to E-Tamago From there, the user can enter Tamagotchi Town and take part in many activities and play many games. The user can even shop and buy things for the Entama, which are received via 14-digit passwords.
The Entama included lifelike features, such as schooling and jobs (with job interviews). What jobs and what education the Tamagotchi receives are based on Skill Points (known as GUTS points), which can be raised by playing games, using items, and eating certain foods. The user can also cook by mixing certain ingredient items together. The foods created through cooking all raise certain skill areas.
There are a total of 58 characters featured on this Tamagotchi (42 Basic characters, three Secret Characters, two oldies, Oyajitchi and 10 Call Dating Service characters, also known as Hatenazoku characters). It includes three character groups: Intelligence, Style, and Kindness, also known as Mamezoku, Memezoku, and Kuchizoku, respectively.
Ura Jinsei Enjoy Tamagotchi Plus (UraTama)
The Ura Jinsei Enjoy Tamagotchi Plus,
also known as the UraTama,
is an Entama
refresh released in June 2006. It features a mono-color blue LCD, unlike most Tamagotchi pets, and includes a star replacing the round decorative "antenna" and beads. Three special designs were released to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Tamagotchi franchise.
Tamagotchi Connection Version 3
The Tamagotchi Connection Version 3
was released on February 18
. Like the Version 2
, it borrows some features from the latest version of the Japanese toy, but greatly simplifies them. This means that the V3
does not go to school, get a career, or receive a salary. It debuted with 7 new colors, adding many more designs later on.
The Version 3 unit has a little antenna on the top left side, similar to the Keitai Tamagotchi. The 'antenna' distinguishes it from the other versions. There are over 20 new characters, many from Osutchi, Mesutchi and the Keitai, thus bringing the total number of Tamagotchi Connection characters to 52. It is able to connect with Version 1 and 2, as well as other V3 Tamagotchi pets.
The Version 3 can also be used with Tamatown.com which generates codes which the user can input into the toy and receive souvenirs, which are items that the user can look at (but the Tamagotchi can't play with). Passwords also give the shop items and food, which cost Gotchi Points. The Tamagotchi can eat the food that the user buys in Tamagotchi Town. Other than the code from the Nintendo DS Game, the passwords unlocked on the pet or on TamaTown.com will not work on any other Tamagotchi, thanks to the username system on both Tamatown and the Tamagotchi itself.
There are six new games, as well as new games that the Tamagotchi play with each other when connecting. The winner gets a certain amount of points depending on what stage the connecting Tamagotchis are in.
Some souvenirs disappear after each previous generation, which is not a glitch but a feature. Souvenirs 2 (Town Hall Key), 3 (Key #2), 7 (Clean up game medal), and Souvenirs 18 to 21 (Arcade items players can win for free) disappear when the new generation appears. These are free items users can turn back on if they saved the passwords that turned them on in the first place. Souvenirs that users pay for with Gotchi Points (The Trip souvenirs) or donate points for (Ring, Cape and Crown from the Tamagotchi King) do not disappear.
Seven codes are available on the Version 3 that unlock special items, similar to the five codes for the Version 2.
Tamagotchi Connection Version 4
The Tamagotchi Connection Version 4 is loosely based on the Japanese "EnTama" series. Part of its European, Asian and Australian name, JinSei, is Japanese, meaning "life". It's motto is "Livin' the Tamagotchi Life", symbolising how the V4 toys are similar to everyday life. The V4 toys sold in Canada and the United States are currently available in 6 different shell designs, one of which was chosen by fans of the toy in late 2006 as part of Bandai's "Great Shell-ection" contest. The winning design is white with zig-zag stripes that glow in the dark. The packaging is identical to other V4 toys, except for a small trophy sticker that reads "Winning Design!".
The Version 4 has a TamaTown separate from the TamaTown for the Version 3. By putting a password and username on the screen, the user can earn Gotchi Points in the Version 4 TamaTown. They will also be able to see their character on the computer screen. There is a school and a kindergarten that the Tamagotchi can visit in TamaTown. The characters are a mixture of the ones from the Japanese releases "Chou Jinsei Enjoi Tamagotchi Plus" and the original "Tamagotchi Plus" as well as form the Mesutchi and Osutchi Tamagotchi releases, they are placed in 3 groups: Mame Group (MameZoku), Meme Group (MemeZoku), and Kuchi Group (KuchiZoku). The Version 4 has new and updated games. The games include Jumping Rope, Mimic, Dance, Shape, and Flag. The player's Tamagotchi may also get a job depending on how they raise their Tamagotchi. There is also a new mail feature.
- The star icon represents the Tamagotchi's fortune. If the user opens up this type of mail the screen will show certain icons and stars next to them. The icons include a money bag to represent money, a heart to represent friendship, and a body to represent health. The stars next to the icons represent how much luck the user's Tamagotchi will be in the respective areas,they range from one to three. For example, if there is one star in the health area the Tamagotchi will be more likely to get sick, but if there are three stars, the Tamagotchi will be very unlikely to get sick.
- The mail icon represents regular mail. The Tamagotchi may get mail from the king, get robbed or receive other things.
- The important mail icon is for information of the Tamagotchi's life, for example, if a teacher wants to invite the Tamagotchi to go to school. The Tamagotchi does not receive this type of mail often.
Tamagotchi Connection Version 4 has new connection options. Not only can the player go to this icon to connect to another Tamagotchi but can also use it to have their Tamagotchi go to school or to work.
The player can also use passwords to "login" to their computer to have their Tamagotchi in TamaTown which has info on the second paragraph. When the player wants to connect to another Tamagotchi they either can press V4 or Others. If the player presses V4 three options would pop up: Game, Present, and Visit. If the player chooses Games, the two Tamagotchi will compete in a randomly selected game for Gotchi points. If the player chooses Present, their Tamagotchi give the other Tamagotchi a gift. If the player chooses Visit, one Tamagotchi will go to the other Tamagotchi and spend time together. On the other hand, if the player chooses Others, they will be able to connect to the older Connections and the two Tamagotchi will randomly either give each other presents, or play a game with each other.
Tamagotchi Connection Version 4.5
The Tamagotchi Connection Version 4.5
, or the Tamagotchi Connection Jinsei Plus
in the UK, is a Tamagotchi released outside of Japan. It's a V4
refresh, but with new and updated features. Featuring many new characters, it is a remake of the Ura Jinsei Enjoy Tamagotchi Plus
, released only in Japan. Its motto is "Livin' the Tamagotchi Life", as was the V4
. It has different jobs to the V4
, and slightly different features, but it shares the V4 Tamagotchi Town

It retains the feature of skill points, but has new types of them: Funny, Gorgeous and Spiritual. It has five games to play, like the V4: Climb, Tug-Of-War, Apple, Shapes (entirely different from the "Shape" from the V4) and Manhole. Just like Versions 2-4, it has secret codes that the player can enter into the Shop Keeper. The release date for the US was June 25 2007.
is a minor Tamagotchi released at the end of January 2007 in Japan. TamagoChu's
come in matching pairs, and with four different designs. The TamagoChu
was mainly released for older audiences.
Unlike other Tamagotchi pets, virtually no care is required for the TamagoChu. There is no food, sickness, game, or bathroom functions. The user selects a teen character on each egg, who follow a linear growth. The TamagoChu include a fourth button (on the right side of the male egg and on the left of the female). Pressing the buttons together, the two eggs can communicate and develop a relationship. As the relationship grows stronger, the characters exchange items and grow up, having offspring and becoming old before leaving back to Tamagotchi Planet on a UFO.

Tamagotchi Connection Version 5 (Familitchi)
The Tamagotchi Connection Version 5
is the current Tamagotchi in the Tamagotchi Connection Series. The Japanese equivelent is known as the Family Iro Iro! Tamagotchi Plus
. Its motto, according to the package, is "We are Familitchi!" as in the song "We Are Family" by Sister Sledge
, and according to Tamatown
the motto is "More Family, More Fun!" The V5 is the first Tamagotchi to be exactly the same (besides language) in Japan and elsewhere, since the Tamagotchi Plus
. It was released in Asia on 6th January 2008, Australia on the 10th January 2008 and elsewhere in February 2008.
A new feature is that you can raise Tamagotchi Families, with up to 3 kids, and on Generation 2 or higher, two parents. It, however, is not able to connect to the older Tamagotchi releases. It also has a new website that it shares with the Famitama, the Tama and Earth Expo According to the package, Bandai quotes, "The Tamagotchis set up this expo to learn more about Earth." It contains a central pavilion, and 4 other pavilions representing each of the 4 main regions where Tamagotchi pets are sold.
It also included a TV option where the player can use Gotchi Points to shop on the Shopping Channel (equivalent to the Shop), find a mate with the Dating show (the equivalent of the Matchmaker), or go traveling on the Traveling Show, which is the V5 variation of the pause mode. Players can raise families like the Mame family, the Kuchipa family, and Neglected families like the Ninja family. The antenna is shaped like a rectanglar house or a chimmney, but like previous models, the antenna is for decoration. The Japanese equivalent has, instead, a hoop for a key.
Royal Dream Family Tamagotchi Plus
The Royal FamiTama
, as it is nicknamed, is a refresh of the FamiTama and was released March 29

. While it is known as the V5 Celebrity in America, it is known as the V5.5 in Australia. It is based on the Royal Dream Family Tamagotchi Plus, with an addition of several exclusive items, characters, and 2 bonus games.
Tamagotchi Plus Color
The Tamagotchi Plus Color is an upcoming Tamagotchi release, the first to have a full-color LCD screen. This release is currently slated to be released as a Japan exclusive. The shell is larger with a covered screen, much like the TamagoChu. It no longer features the classic "cracked" appearance, but maintains an infrared at the top of the shell. 7 colors have been announced: White, Black, Pink, Magenta, Green, Blue, and Orange.
A special edition of the TMGC+C is planned, featuring characters based on the Japanese band Exile. The special release will be known as the EXmotchi. Two designs are planned: one white, and one red. Both will feature the name "EXILE" at the top, with "TMGC" written just above the buttons.
is not exactly a virtual pet, unlike most Tamagotchi releases. It is a combination of a pedometer and a game. When the user walks while wearing it, a character in the Arukotch called Arukotchi walks on the screen, and she may meet a boy Tamagotchi. Arukotchi may also find an item which makes her more attractive to the other Tamagotchi while she walks.
Mezamatch is a combination clock and virtual pet. It resembles a large Tamagotchi. You can also save dates, like anniversaries and birthdays on it.
Mechagotch is a calculator. There are two modes which one can use it in, in addition to three games. One mode is a normal calculator, and one is a calculator with a Tamagotchi who reacts in different ways depending on the calculation. When one first uses this mode, there is an egg on the screen. It hatches into a different character depending on the last two or three digits in the answer to the first calculation which the user does in this mode. After the character hatches, the character reacts in different ways depending on the answer to the subsequent calculations. The numbers also show up in different ways depending on the character (for example, the answer might show up right away, or they might "spin" through several numbers in a similar way to a slot machine, depending on the character).
There are also three games. The first game is a kind of blackjack game, the second game is a game in which the player has to guess whether the number is higher or lower than the one displayed on the screen, and the third game is a memory game.
These Tamagotchi were put in stores around Japan. The owner of a Tamagotchi could connect their Tamagotchi to get a special character on their friends list, and Keitais, Akais, TamaSukus, and Entamas could connect to buy items from the Deka. There are 4 main versions, Lotteria, Tamatama market, Game Station and Jukutama. There were not put for sale, but it is possible to buy them online.
Ouchi no Deka Tamagotchi (Home Huge Tamagotchi)
is a version of the "Huge Tamagotchi" which can be bought by individuals for home use. It was released July 2005 in Japan. It includes a stand for tabletop display, three-position volume adjust, and requires 2 AAA batteries.
The player is a female Tamagotchi character that initially lives in a small house in TamaTown. Through playing games and banking Gotchi Points, one can upgrade their house several times, the end result being a large Japanese-style palace. Each time an upgrade is performed, the capacity to keep various pets is increased. It is also possible to purchase a wide range of items to decorate the inside of the house, or to transfer over to the portable tamagotchi toys.
A special green-colored edition was sold at Japanese Toys-R-Us stores, available either paired with a matching Akai series toy or alone.
Other versions of home deka were launched including Quishideka and Golden Deka.
The Tamagotchi Kakeibo (超やりくりエンジョイ！たまごっちかけいぼ chō yarikuri enjoi! tamagotchi kakeibo) is an accessory for the entama-generation Tamagotchi toys released in Japan.
It is slightly smaller than a home dekatama and very thin, as it is designed to fit into a small binder included with the toy. Inside the binder is a starter pack of "account book" (kakeibo) pages used to track the user's spending of "gotchi points", the currency used in all Tamagotchi toys. Initially released with a pink body and orange stylus, a later version released around the same time as the uratama features a blue body and green stylus, new screen background, and new binder cover (although with the same black-pixel LCD and programming).
The kakeibo is not really a virtual pet like the other portable tamagotchi, but more of a tool to assist with caring for them. Users play as Osewatchi (likely from the word o-sewa; help or aid), a female Tamagotchi who lives in Tamagotchi Town's Ginza district, which is the Tamagotchi Planet's version of the fashionable Tokyo shopping district. There are many stores which sell items users can transfer to their Tamagotchi pets, a bank to store money, as well as mini-games to earn that money and a library which can record which Tamagotchi characters players have discovered on their Entama and Uratama.
Tamagotchi "Music Fever"
The Tamagotchi "Music Fever" is a Tamagotchi that can record music off of CDs
or cassette tapes
. It is somewhat similar to the iPod
. There are also a few games that can be played on the MusicFever device.
, also known as TamaSuku (たまスク), is the second newest Tamagotchi available in Japan, being released November 23
. It is the second Tamagotchi that is horizontal, first being Arukotch. It also is the first Tamagotchi to use a directional pad, and the second Tamagotchi to have only "select" and "cancel" buttons, the first being the Yasashii Tamagotchi. It can connect to other Tamagotchi Schools for playing games, the Entama and Uratama to move in new students and exchanging "Gotchi Points", Tamagotchi Station, Tamagotchi Station 2, the "jukutama" (a Deka Tamagotchi for Tamasuku) and an interactive website where players can compete against other players.
The goal of Tamagotchi School is for the user to make their class a "supreme class" by enrolling new students, keeping up their popularity, and increasing their score in three main subject areas: National Language (i.e. Japanese), Arithmetic, and Science. Just like the three different skill areas of the Entama, Uratama, and Hanerutchi 2, players can increase these by playing games or buying stat-boosting items. There are two versions of the Tamagotchi School.
The Furefure is another large Tamagotchi that can be connected the Tamagotchi School, or as a Deka or Oushi No Deka Tamagotch for the Tamagotchi School. It enables the students to play games. According to a translated version of the Tamagotchi Channel
it is a Tamagotchi based on club activities, e.g. football. It was released on April 28
. The Furefure can also be referred to as a TamaFure, and Jukutama.
This Tamagotchi is different from previous models because it features both a 2D pixel screen and 3D playset. The toy comes in a flip-top compact that opens to reveal some Tamagotchi figurines. Placing them in different spots activates different actions. There are the tradition three buttons on the playset itself, along with the condiment buttons. The object of the game is to fill out orders. It was released July 28 2007
Tamagotchi no Fureai Furendo Chamametchi
This toy is a ChaMametchi plush joined to a square-shaped virtual pet. it is made to follow the story of ChaMametchi playing with mametchis rocket, and flying to Earth. It is to be released July 27
