Paparatchi's name is derived from the English/Italian word paparazzi, referring to people who take photographs of celebrities.

Appearances on Virtual Pets

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 a few days.

Tamagotchi Connection Version 3

Paparatchi can be obtained by taking average care of a teen on any odd generation.

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.
