The Tamagotchi P's (たまごっちぴーす Tamagotchi Pīsu) is a Tamagotchi virtual pet device released in Japan on November 23, 2012. Like the previous color releases, it was based on the then airing Tamagotchi! anime series Tamagotchi! Yume Kira Dream, taking place in Dream Town and featuring new characters and locations from there.

The P's is the very first Tamagotchi version to have a slot for an attachable pin, hence the name "Pierce." Various pierces were released, each with exclusive content.

A user by the name of Mr.Blinky has created a patch for the P's which enables users to change the language to English. They have also created downloadable versions of the pierces, including custom ones.

Design

The Tamagotchi P's is about the same size and shape as the Tamagotchi iD L, having the same screen size and hard plastic buttons. The faceplate is clear with gemstones shapes on the left and right of the screen. The printed graphic below the faceplate has holographic gemstone prints in the spots where the gemstone shapes on the faceplate are. Above the screen is a small rectangular slot where the pierce can be inserted. Tamagotchi P's come with a heart shaped pierce that has no content and is just for decoration.

Features

Tama Deco Pierce

Main article: Tama Deco Pierce

A Tama Deco Pierce (たまデコピアス Tama Deko Piasu), short for Tamagotchi Decoration Piercing, is a small changeable pin similar to a Gotchi Figure on a TamaTown Tama-Go. Each pierce unlocks new characters (or transformations for base ones), games, locations, food, clothing, and items. Tama Deco Pierces also come with two sheets of secret notes that goes into the Tamagotchi P's secret pocket book (sold separately). The notes generally explain the content of the pierces and how to unlock the characters they contain. Only one pierce can be plugged in and active at a time. If a pierce is removed the content for the pierce will stay for some time until it expires and reverts to base content (around 12-48 hours) or another pierce is inserted. If a pierce exclusive character is being raised, the character can be kept until they are married off. However, another pierce is unable to be used until then.

Personalities

The P's introduces personalities which is a trait that determines what teen and adult characters can be gotten. The five types of personalities are intelligent, fashionable, charismatic, gourmet expert, and athletic. Personalities can be determined by the meals, snacks, accessories, and toys played which adds personality points to the respective categories. If the tamagotchi has an equal amount of points for two personalities, their personality will alternate between the two until more points are earned for one or until they evolve into the next stage.

Diary

The tamagotchi now keeps a diary where they will record certain events they experienced with a diary entry and picture. Things the tamagotchi will write about include playdates with connected tamagotchis from other devices, going to daycare, going to school, and what they did at their part-time job.

Puzzle Pieces

Main article: TamaTomo

The tamatomo system returns again, this time being renamed as puzzle pieces. Each character (including pierce exclusive ones) has four puzzle pieces to collect and collection of all four will record the character tamatomo in the notebook option. Three of the puzzle pieces are earned by eating a certain food, playing with an item, or putting an accessory on. The last piece is earned by raising an adult character for 48 hours. Collecting character tamatomos in the notebook unlocks new locations and icon backgrounds.

Games

There are two base games that can be played at the Game Center and one that is unlocked at Dream Beach:

  • Catch: There will be food following the lines and moving down. It's the tamagotchi's job to catch them in a bag which can be moved left and right with the B button. After 8 food are caught, the game gets harder with the food falling faster, portals appearing, and animals covering parts of the line.
  • Jump Rope: Royal servants will be swinging a jump rope for oncoming tamagotchis. Press B in time to make them jump.
  • Dream Beach: The tamagotchi will be running through the beach. Quickly press the A button to fill the bar and make the tamagotchi run the whole way.

Locations

There are various locations that can be visited. Some are unlocked when enough character tamatomos are collected.

  • Game Center: Two games can be played here
  • Flower Bud Park: NPCs can be met and talked to at this location. If the tamagotchi is an adult, they can encounter tamapets to adopt and other tamagotchis to date and marry. Part time jobs can also be worked here if certain conditions are met.
  • Gotchi Reform: New wallpapers can be bought for different rooms of the house from this shop.
  • Paint: Child and teen tamagotchis can get their body color changed for free at this location. The color change lasts until the tamagotchi takes a bath.
  • Daycare: Children and teens can be dropped off at the daycare between 10 AM and 3 PM to be looked after for 50 gotchi an hour. The daycare doesn't fully pause the tamagotchi; it only makes their needs go down at a slower rate.
    • Dream School: This location replaces the daycare once the tamagotchi is an adult. Going to school is free and the hours are from 7 AM to 4 PM. The tamagotchi can be seen going to various classes at different hours and sometimes there will be a surprise test that can only be passed if the tamagotchi has enough personality points in a certain category to pass. Like the daycare, the tamagotchi's needs slowly go down while attending.
  • Tama Depa: Toys and items can be bought at this location.
  • Kirakira Tamamori Shop: Clothes and accessories can be bought at this location.
  • Matchmaker: This location is available after an adult tamagotchi is raised for 24 hours. The matchmaker will present three partners and one can be chosen by the user to marry.
  • Eco Town (Unlocked with Eco Car): If the tamagotchi encounters the Eco-usatchi Triplets at Flower Bud park, they may award them with the Eco Car which unlocks Eco Town when used. NPCs can be met at the town and an item or food will be gifted once per day.
  • Secret Base (1 tamatomo): Previous raised characters that earned their tamatomo can be met here. The character will tell the tamagotchi about a rocket that is being built and explain that blueprint pieces can be found by earning tamatomos. Once 32 tamatomos are earned, the rocket will be built and a secret event will happen.
  • Amusement Park (4 tamatomos): The tamagotchi can choose an attraction to ride for a short animation.
  • Dream Beach (10 tamatomos): A game can be played at this location.
  • Wishing Fountain (15 tamatomos): The tamagotchi can throw 10 gotchi into the fountain and meet a NPC that will change their personality. Occasionally, the NPC will give a special gift instead.
  • Observation Deck (20 tamatomos)

Part-Time Jobs

Once the tamagotchi is an adult, they can work a part-time job anytime from 7 AM to 10 AM by going to the park. To get a certain job, some conditions must be met. When the tamagotchi is sent to work, the user does not have to interact with them or do anything; however, their needs will still drop down at a normal rate. If the hunger or happiness meter goes down to zero the tamagotchi will automatically come home. Each hour worked earns 250 gotchi points and the tamagotchi can be called back from work anytime. If 30 hours are worked at one location a unique outfit, accessory, or toy will be awarded. The available jobs and their conditions are:

  • Park Security Guard: Visit Flower Bud Park 10 times. Rewards are Police Uniform and Patrol Hat.
  • TamaDepa Assistant: Buy at least two items from the Tama Depa. Rewards are the Tama Depa Uniform and Hat.
  • Tamamori Assistant: Buy at least two items from the Tamamori Shop. Rewards are a Hanger and Cash Register.
  • Cafe Maid: Eat 10 or more foods from the Music Cafe. Rewards are a Maid Outfit and Accessory.

Tama Pet

Tama Pets return with the same mechanics from the iD L. Different tama pets appear at Flower Bud Park at certain hours and must be encountered three times to adopt them. Adopted tama pets will live in the backyard and follow the tamagotchi when they travel to locations (they will not appear at the location when the tamagotchi arrives). The tama pet will stay until the next generation and will not leave until then.

Dating

Adult tamagotchis can meet up with other tamagotchis at Flower Bud Park to go on dates with them. Different characters will appear at certain hours and at the second encounter there will be an option to go on a date. After the second date, the tamagotchi will get the option to marry them.

Connectivity

The P's introduces 4 way device connectivity with various activities and games to do while connected. The two base games are Cooking and Hide and Seek with additional games being available from pierces. Tamagotchis can also visit each other to eat food, take baths, and play together. Additionally, letters can be written and sent between devices when a connection is made and tamagotchis may marry each other.

The P's also has connectivity with the Tamagotchi iD L to exchange gifts and play a game and connectivity with the Yume Kira Bag to receive gotchi points. There is additional connectivity with the Tamagotchi! Data Carddass arcade machines.

Departure

Like the Tamagotchi iD L, adults do not die if neglected. While younger stages can still die, adults instead run away and leave a goodbye letter explaining why they left and asking the user to take better care of them next time. The departure sequence begins when the tamagotchi has a suitcase next to them. This can be stopped by pressing the clover icon to convince them to stay; otherwise they will leave after some time and the user is forced to restart by pressing A + C together.

Sets

Love and Melody Set

There have been special Tamagotchi P's sets which came with a Tama Deco Pierce that could otherwise be bought separately. The P's in these sets (excluding the Love and Melody set) come in exclusive two-color models and have slightly different box art featuring the characters from the Tama Deco Pierce. Currently, all the P's sets only come with character Tama Deco Pierces (not transformation ones).

  • Love and Melody Set - Pink P's with LoveMelo Pierce
  • Melody Land Set - Pink and purple P's with Melody Land Pierce
  • Feat. Aikatsu! Set - Pink and white P's with Aikatsu Pierce
  • Dream Coffret Set - Pink and yellow P's with Coffret Pierce
