Hashitamatchi (はしたまっち) is a teen character that debuted on the second generation of the original Tamagotchi.
Hashitamatchi resembles a blue ball with beady eyes, red cheeks, and a yellow beak. In his US artwork, he was depicted with a green beak at first.
As Hashitamatchi grows it gains a beak. It is a relaxed, carefree type, and needs a lot of attention and love.
Hashitamatchi has low blood pressure, and wakes up late in the mornings. He is also described as "slow". According to his American description, he finds eating difficult due to his weak beak.
The Nintendo Power guide to the Tamagotchi Game Boy game stated: "Like Kuchitamatchi, Hashitamatchi probably could have used a little more attention and love when it was younger. It's usually content, or a bit lazy in the mornings."
Appearances on Virtual Pets
Hashitamatchi evolves from Tonmarutchi after 72 hours and is obtained from bad care. After another 72 hours, Hashitamatchi can evolve into either Hashizoutchi with good care, Kusatchi with average care, or Takotchi with bad care. On the CD-ROM version, he can only evolve into Kusatchi with good care, or Takotchi with bad care.
Hashitamatchi can evolve from any child character after 24 hours, and appears on even generations as the worst care teen.
Hashitamatchi appears as one of the two male universal teens. The other one is Hikotchi. Hashitamatchi can evolve from any of the four child characters after 24 hours provided that they are raised with good care and their parent was either Oyajitchi or one of the universal adults, and can evolve into Mametchi, Kuchipatchi, or Gozarutchi after another 48 hours.
Hashi means "beak" and Tama means "round".
