tamagotchi: (Pooping Odenkun)
This was the first color screen edition of the Tamagotchi. It functions much like a regular Tamagotchi Plus connection, but with many enhanced features. Aside from a full screen, the Tamagotchi lives in a house that can be decorated. You can play games with the Tamagotchi at the arcade in order to gain points to go shopping. Various types of items can be bought for the Tamagotchi such as toys, tools, and decorations. I have not played with this Tamagotchi extensively, but apparently there are certain items that you can gather to unlock special features. Like the Tamagotchi Plus, you can connect it to other TMGC+Colors, but it is not backwards compatible with other older Tamagotchi Connections. It can also be connected with an ID, an ID L and a Tamagotchi P's.

Here is a picture of the one I own:

Right now these are pretty expensive. They are discontinued, but you can find them on eBay ranging anywhere from $50-200. I got mine for about $45 a few months after it first came out.

Despite how many Tamagotchis I currently own, my collection is not complete. There are a number of Tamagotchi I would like to own but can't collect, either because they are way too expensive or too rare to find. There are also pets I simply do not wish to collect because they don't seem that interesting. Here's a list with some pictures so you can get an idea. Most of them are pretty rare/expensive. I won't be giving reviews because I wouldn't know anything about most of them since I've either never seen or don't wish to own them. I'm missing a lot from this list because a number of newer Tamagotchis have been released, so please send me a message if you have any info you would like to share :D :

American Oceangotchi- While I would definitely love to own this Tama, it doesn't seem feasible. The designs are cute and its in English language, but it is very rare and can cost upwards of $300 these days. Also, it is so hard to care for that it is simply not worth buying. I already have the Japanese version, so it seems superfluous to get the English edition in light of these facts.

TamaOch- The characters are based on some Japanese actress. I'm not interested in getting this one, and I've heard the care level is super difficult.

Tamagotchi School- Not sure what the point of this one is. Just to send your character to school? Seems a little boring if you ask me *shrug* I don't plan on collecting it :P

Kakeibo- I think this one goes with the Entama (Cho Jinsei). Probably like how the Home deka goes with the Keitai, but I could be wrong. It has to do with accounting I think, so doesn't seem interesting to me.

Tamagotchi Color Hexagon- This is a variation on the +Color with only a couple different characters. Don't know if there are different features, though. I've heard it's very Japanese text-heavy, so it is difficult to play with. Won't be buying.

Tamagotchi ID- I'm assuming this is the second edition of the Tamagotchi Color. It looks prettier than the original. I decided not to collect this one because I don't think it has very many particularly cute characters. But I recommend it if you want a Tamagotchi with lots of customization features in the game-play.

Tamagotchi ID L Princess Spacey- Not interested in getting this one because it didn't have enough cute new characters and as far as I can tell it's too similar to the ID L of which I already have two.

Tamagotchi P's Pierces- I now have the Tamagotchi P's, but I don't have any pierces to go along with it. So here's a list of the pierces that are available. Maybe I'll get a few someday, but it's not a priority since the pet functions perfectly fine without them. I'm sure I'm missing a ton from this list.

Melody Land


Fairy Change

Royal Change

Love and Melody

Tama Star Circus

Not sure which one this one is supposed to be.





Aikatisu Dream Academy edition

Tamagotchi M!x- I already own the anniversary edition of the M!x, so I don't see the point in getting any of the regular editions, especially since I don't think their shells are too attractive. However, I do plan to collect the Sanrio edition eventually.

Tamagotchi M!x Dream-

iD L

The iD L 4th is the newest edition to date of the colored screen Tamagotchis released in Japan. It has tons more characters, most of which are super duper cute and it has lots of features. Overall I would say that this Tamagotchi really isn't much different from the original Color Tamagotchi. I do like the shell design of the iD L's much better because they are prettier and less plain looking. The original Tamagotchi Color has a piece of plastic that goes over the screen and makes the shell design look more smooth. The iD L's are lacking the piece of plastic so the screen is more embedded looking into the shell. The screen is framed by a piece of plastic that is diamondy looking, the diamondy looking frame is framed by a silver painted oval. The back covers of the iD L slide off when you press a little button in back instead of being unscrewed like older Tamagotchis. The iD L is also rounder all over so it is more egg shaped, whereas the original Tamagotchi Color is flat on the bottom which is kind of weird looking, but is more stable when sitting on a flat surface. Bandai also released a 15th Anniversary edition of the iD L and it has different characters and games but is essentially the same exact game play as the regular iD L. They also released a version that has a character called Princess Spacey, but all the other characters are the same as the regular iD L. It might have different games but I don't know yet. I won't bother getting the Princess Spacey edition since it is more expensive and pointless to get anyway.

Here are some pictures of the ones I have:

This is an English ID L. You can tell by the fact that the packaging is mostly white. When you turn it on all of the menus are in English. This was only released in China.

Here is the regular iD L. I actually sold this one on eBay earlier this year in order to get the funds to buy the English version.

Here is the 15th Anniversary Edition

Right now the regular iD L's are still going for around $70. The 15th Anniversary editions are rarer so they are going from anywhere between $80 (if you're lucky) and $120. Princess Spacey edition is currently in the $90 range but I suspect the price will begin to go up after a few months like the 15th Anniversary edition did.
