Ichigotchi (いちごっち Ichigotchi) is a teenage Tamagotchi character introduced on the Tamagotchi Plus / Connection in 2004 and has since become a staple character in the Tamagotchi franchise. She originally had an ambiguous gender but since the Entama in Japan and the Tamagotchi Connection Version 4 worldwide, Ichigotchi has been identified as female. She is in the Meme Family.


Ichigotchi resembles an upside-down strawberry with two green feet that look like strawberry leaves. Her face area is light pink. She has pink cheeks and small, round dark eyes. She has several seeds on the right side of her body.


Ichigotchi comes from Berry Town. She loves to sing and dance and does it everyday. She is generally friendly and well-meaning, but she doesn't like being told things that confuse her or when the seeds on her head are counted. Usually she has five, but sometimes more. Her best friend is Ringotchi. She is also friends with Memetchi and Violetchi.

On Virtual Pets

Tamagotchi Connection Version 1

Ichigotchi is a gender-neutral teen that can evolve from Marutchi on the first generation or Kinakomotchi on odd generations through one or less Care Mistakes. It has a base weight of 20lb, sleeps from 8pm to 9am, and its meal and snack are a bowl of rice and a piece of candy - shared with the other teens and children, in addition to the ball obtainable as a connection gift.

Ichigotchi will evolve into an adult after 72 hours - at full discipline they will become Mametchi with no care mistakes, Kuchipatchi with one or two care mistakes, Tarakotchi Hanatchi with three or more care mistakes (with the evolution being determined by what kinds of care mistakes were made), or Masktchi with three or more care mistakes and sufficient levels of physical and emotional neglect.

Tamagotchi Connection Version 2

Ichigotchi is one of the three teens obtainable on an even-numbered generation from good care. Ichigotchi sleeps from 8 PM to 8 AM, likes milk and hates drumsticks.

Keitai/Akai Series

Ichigotchi is an odd-generation teen obtained through taking good care of Kuribotchi. Depending on care level, it can become either Violetchi (Ribotchi on the Akai) with perfect care, Memetchi with good emotional care, Debatchi with good physical care, or Gozarutchi with bad care.

Tamagotchi Connection Version 4

Hinotamatchi is a female Meme teen that can evolve from Harutchi, Puchitchi or Mizutamatchi with average care or worse, or from Mohitamatchi with any level of care. If she finishes the teen stage with a skill point total of 80 or higher and receives good care she may evolve into either Ponytchi (intelligence), Memetchi (fashion), or Violetchi (kindness).

If she doesn't finish the teen stage with a skill point total of 80 or higher but is cared for well then she will instead evolve into Pyonkotchi. However, she may also become Hanatchi if she has a skill point total of under 80 and is not cared for well. Also, even if her skill point total is higher than 80, being neglected to the point of death will trigger an evolution to Masktchi. She sleeps from 8 PM to 9 AM.

Tamagotchi Connection Version 4.5

Ichigotchi is a female universal teen, evolving from any female child with good care if their parent was Oyajitchi or any universal adult. It can evolve into any one of the female universal adults - Mimitchi, Memetchi or Violetchi.

Her adult evolution depends on Bonding percentage and what training items are used.

Tamagotchi Music Star

Ichigotchi evolves from either Hitodetchi or Tamatchi and can appear in any generation with bad care. Ichigotchi's adult evolution is based on how well she is cared for at the end of thirty hours (one day plus six additional hours). She sleeps from 8:45 PM to 7:30 AM.

Tamagotchi Plus Color/Hexagontchi

Ichigotchi is the bad-care female teen, obtained by giving a child four or more care misses. Ichigotchi's unique item on the Plus Color is White Cream, shared with Makiko.

On the Hexagontchi, she can become Mimitchi with no care mistakes, Memetchi with 1-3 care mistakes or Makiko with four or more care mistakes in odd generations; and in even generations she can become Violetchi with no care mistakes, Maidtchi with 1-3 care mistakes or Sebiretchi with four or more care mistakes.

Appearance in Tamagotchi Media

Possible Stage Change

Ichigotchi has always been a teenage Tamagotchi character, but on her appearance on the Tama-Go as Gotchi Figure #155 Ichigotchi, her sprite was enlarged, making her look more like an adult. All other Gotchi Figures released were based on adults too, giving more evidence that she may have been changed to an adult Tamagotchi, much like Chamametchi, Kikitchi, Ringotchi and Nonopotchi.
