Teletchi resembles a round ball with a face, with a top that has two antennas sticking upward. In its original artwork, Teletchi has a red body and thick antennas. In its modern artwork, the antennas are thinner and Teletchi's gender is differentiated by body color; female Teletchi are light red with orange cheeks, while male Teletchi have a dark blue body, light blue antennas, and white eyes and mouth.
Teletchi is bashful and just can't seem to make friends, but really just wants to play with everyone and get along.

Osutchi and Mesutchi
Teletchi is a TMP2 baby that is born when either Pyonchitchi or Bunbuntchi marries Kikotchi or Gankotchi, or when Pyonkotchi or Bunkotchi marries Kiwitchi or Megatchi. It also has a 50% chance of being born if Marumimitchi or Mimikotchi marries an adult of a higher or lower TMP.
After the parents leave, Teletchi will remain as a baby for one day and make a total of three discipline calls before evolving to Puchitchi. If its weight is high, its natural sickness will occur two hours before evolution is due instead of ten minutes before. Teletchi loses a heart every 30 minutes, sleeps from 8 PM to 9 AM, and its base weight is 5g.
Tamagotchi Connection Version 3
Teletchi can be male or female at random at the start of each generation. A male Teletchi born from marrying Ojitchi and Otokitchi will always evolve into Oyajitchi. Teletchi's favorite food is cupcakes, and dislikes tacos.
Teletchi's name is derived from the Japanese word 照れる tereru, which means to feel bashful or shy.
- With the release of the Tamagotchi Connection Version 3, Teletchi was given alternate coloring for the male variation. While Bandai's official growth chart does not give the two different names, the female version is sometimes called "Shiroteletchi" (しろテレっち), or alternatively, the male is called "KuroTeletchi" (くろテレっち). However, these names are used primarily by the fanbase, and neither names are official.
