I've gone a long time without playing with any of my little Tamas, so long that two are totally dead on batteries (blank screen), one is showing the batteries dead symbol, one goes dead on batteries every time I unpause it, and the others were and are... just paused I guess.
Last night I finally decided that I missed playing with them, so I decided to start with just one. Only, I didn't really know which one! I'd already narrowed it down past the 4 with no batteries, my pink one (which I always like to keep one generation higher than my yellow one, which has totally dead batteries), my blue V3 (it has a Bill and it's baby on it and I didn't feel like doing nothing but games, poo duty, and giving it food), and my waves V4 (it's slowed down, silent, and always seems to give me none-group characters, regardless of skill point levels). That left me with my glow-in-the-dark V4 and my Uratama. My Uratama has a Ura Furawatchi named Izumi (if memory serves correctly) on it and my glowing V4 had a Mohitamatchi named Al on it. I chose my V4 because glowing in the dark seemed more appropriate to the season than my orange Uratama that has rainbows and diamond-star-things covering it.
I played with Al a little last night, gave him a time-out for calling for no reason and made sure he turned out the lights at bedtime. He was and is generally a good boy and had the lights out before I had to repremand him.
I had to pause him for a total of between 1 and 2 hours today. He cried once, but I quickly cheered him up again. Other than that I fed him a lot of snacks (some people he didn't even know were mean to him in the mail!), a handful of meals, and a couple games. Somewhere around 3:30 PM he evolved into.... a..... Young Kutchipatchi! Yay! Now I'm going to try and get his skill points up in intelligence so that he can evolve into a Minotchi, the only of the male Kutchi group I haven't had on any of my Tamas, save for Nonbiritchi.
Feel free to post opinions (well, nice ones anyways....).
