Tama Pets (たまペット Tama Petto) are pets of Tamagotchi characters. An example is Mametchi's Tama Pet, Bagubagutchi. They are usually little Tamagotchis that can only say one word, mostly onomatopoeia words, and usually show little to no signs of sentience - Hapihapitchi, Yumecantchi, Kizunatchi, and Lucky are the only known Tama Pets that can speak like normal Tamagotchis. In the anime, the word Tama Pet can be used for all species of animals, or animal-like Tamagotchis, of Tamagotchi Planet.
So far, Hapihapitchi is the only artificial Tama Pet in the franchise, while Kizunatchi is the only Tama Pet that can evolve.
On Virtual Pets
Tamagotchi Connection Version 5
Tama Pets appeared on the Tamagotchi Connection Version 5 as part of the pure families. There are four Tama Pets, each one belonging to a specific family: Bagubagutchi with the Mame Family, Chitchi with the Meme Family, Onsenmoguratchi with the Kuchipa Family, and Hanatarezoutchi with the Violet Family. The Tama Pets are obtained with the families and can't be interacted with individually.
Tamagotchi iD L
The first Tamagotchi device that had adoptable Tama Pets was the Tamagotchi iD L. The Tama Pets that appear on this device include: Hapihapitchi, Doremitchi, Sopratchi, Bagubagutchi, Chitchi, Onsenmoguratchi, Shurikentchi, Puchiberitchi, Harapparatchi, and Rubytchi. In the iD L Princess Spacy version, Rubytchi is replaced by Kizunatchi.
Tama Pets reappear and serve the same purpose as in the predecessor, although there are only five different pets that can be adopted - Yumecantchi, Chapitchi, Furilovetchi, Monatototchi and Rinsetchi.
Tama Pets appear in the Tamagotchi Meets and On versions. You get a pet by leaving a toy outside by going to your items (the chest icon), selecting the toy, and selecting 'Outside'. You must check outside in the yard after you leave the toy after about a minute. A Tama Pet will arrive and for it to live with you, you must select 'Yes' to the prompt that comes up. A basic version of the M!x gameplay component also comes with Tama Pets in the Tamagotchi Meets and On versions. The way this happens is: if you go out into the yard after doing an action or within an amount of time, eventually another Tama Pet will approach yours. Select 'Yes' to the tiny animal's proposal, and the Tama Pets will get "married" and have a child with similar traits. The parents will promptly leave after it hatches into a baby ???????? and you will have the new Tama Pet who calls out to you and evolves in front of you. There are currently 1,200 Tama Pet combinations which are currently available. The pure forms of said pets can be viewed here. Rarer pets are more likely to pass along face or body genes.
