Keitai and Akai
The user must first raise a Violetchi (Ribotchi on the Akai) and have it marry a Mametchi (on another Tamagotchi, not the Matchmaker). The resulting baby must be raised into a Dorotchi (Tengutchi on the Akai), who will evolve into Paparatchi in three days, if good care is maintained and no care mistakes happen.
Tamagotchi Connection Version 3
Tamagotchi Connection Version 5 Celebrity
Paparatchi appears as a neglect-exclusive character who can evolve from any adult who had 3 calls missed for empty happiness hearts (the parents will evolve into Scooptchi). If a Paparatchi marries, it will evolve into Scooptchi. Paparatchi can be reverted back to its previous form either by eating Caramel Candy, or using the Three-Way Mirror. Both male and female Paparatchi have the same default animations, but have unique Close Ups.
Paparatchi's name is derived from the English/Italian word paparazzi, referring to people who take photographs of celebrities.
- Paparatchi is part of 3 different evolution stages.
- Despite being a neglect character on the V5 Celebrity, he was advertised on the box attractively.
