5.0 out of 5 stars Gen 2 : how to stay alive & get secret Zatchi character
Reviewed in Canada on 17 March 2021
The Original Tamagotchi - Gen 2 - white with hearts

* Annoying Nostalgic!
* Adult life friendly : “Pause” function
* Silence option that doubles as a battery saver by dimming backlight

* Great tool for : Covid isolation, boredom, anxiety, ADD, and routine change!

* Amazon sells tamagotchi’s for : $20-$60 depending on what Generation/version you pick
* There are A-LOT of colours/patterns/textures and even minis! - games/characters/care requirements change with each Gen/Version

Gen 2 - Staying Alive : Tips & Tricks & secret character - ZATCHI

* 1 day = 1yr for tamagotchi after yr 1 and max life span is 20yrs, most end by 10yrs = 10 days

* Egg - 5min to hatch = Baby stage.

* Baby 0-1yr - base wt: 5lbs, 1hr b4 it evolves to yr 1, requires immediate and constant care/attention within the hour before evolving

* Child 1-3yrs - base wt: 10lbs, up 9am - 8pm, care/attention required roughly every 1hr, discipline/missed care determines teen, will be in this stage for 2-3days before evolving. *near to perfect care = Tangaritchi teen - need for secret character!

* Teen 3-6yrs - base wt: 20lbs, up 8am - 9pm, care/attention is required roughly every 2hrs in this stage, start with 0% discipline will only become *Zuccitchi adult - only one that can evolve to *secret character so ignore the 4 calls for discipline, will remain teen for 2-3 days before evolving to adult at 6yrs.

* Adult 6yrs-9yrs/ max 20yrs. - base wt: 30lbs, *Zuccitchi - up 11am -11pm, care/attention required roughly every 3hrs, *only fill hearts when they are 50% empty, 50% discipline max, ignore to avoid going over, special evolution occurs at age 9 - 12yrs, if no change by then it may not evolve and life span is up to 20yrs before death/restart

* Secret Adult 9-12yrs - *Zatchi - base wt: 30lbs, up 11am-11pm, just care for it as best as you can, life span is 20yrs max!, care/attention required roughly every 3.5hrs

* At death you can restart and try other methods for other characters :)

* Food : burger = 1 food heart and 1lbs gain - will stop eating when full

* Snack : cake = 1 food heart, 1 happy heart, and 2lbs gain- tamagotchi will always eat this - will cause illness/obesity, do not over feed!

* Activity game : high/low number guessing game - a 3/5 win earns 1 happy heart and burns 1lbs and 1 food heart, 5/5 wins = 2 happy hearts, burn 1 food heart, loose 2lbs, if you lose your tamagotchi becomes hungry and unhappy, and it does not loose any weight !

* Discipline is required for growth, tamagotchi will call out when it doesn’t actually need anything which is a no no for a good character growth. The fuller the bar the better your character, but remember Zutchi adult can only be evolved by a Zucchini adult and tangaratchi teen!

* Tamagotchi may get Sick before evolving make sure you treat it right away to avoid death or a runaway!

* Once a fully grown adult your tamagotchi can return to its home planet at any time it chooses aka death/restart, this could happen as early as 6 days in depending on care/character

Reviewed in Canada on 20 May 2021
I can’t stop hearing “grow up” from my family and friends but I don’t care LOL.
Yes I’m 34 and needed a bit of nostalgia. 90s kids were simply the best haha.
Everything is working fine. My first one died because at 34 I’m busier than I was at 11, but I forgot about the pause feature.
No issues at all with it, it’s as I remember it and now I’ve filled my nostalgia need.
