Planktontchi (プランクトンっち Purankutontchi) is a baby character that debuted on the Tamagotchi Ocean.
Planktontchi resembles a small, yellow ball with a face, an antenna on top, and three legs underneath.
Planktontchi grew up with several tens of thousands of childhood friends and relatives, but thanks to predators and other agents of natural selection, it is currently all alone. Perhaps as a result of this, it's become lonely, world-weary, anguished eyes for such a little baby. It's very independent, and plans to leave the Tamagotchi Ocean to search all the seas in the world for new friends.

Planktontchi is the baby stage, and will evolve into Kuragetchi after one hour. The more hunger hearts empty before a happiness heart empties, and the fewer injections required when it gets sick at this stage, the more likely the baby is to grow to adulthood, as long as it receives adequate care from the user.
Planktontchi's name is derived from the English word "plankton".
