Tamagotchi meets Pokemon with Eevee release

Pokémon and Tamagotchi, the digital pet that spawned a worldwide toy fad in the late ’90s, are coming together. Eevee will get its own official Tamagotchi, letting Pokémon fans raise an Eevee and evolve it into eight different Eeveelutions. Eevee x Tamagotchi is, as you might expect, very much like a standard Tamagotchi. It’s slightly smaller than the original design (and is a little thicker, too) but is a similar size to the updated model Bandai released to mark the 20th birthday of its virtual pet phenomenon.

This new Tamagotchi is a lot similar to the ones we are used to in the past, minus the lack of poop. There are two mini-games which is how you entertain your Eevee and keep it happy. The first involves using the A and B buttons to collect five items of falling fruit, while the second has you repeating a musical sequence played by Eevee.

This game adds value by giving you the chance to evolve Eevee into one of its many forms. Depending on which form you want – Flareon, Jolteon, Vaporeon, Leafeon, Glaceon, Espeon, Umbreon or Sylveon – you have to perform certain actions. For example, if you want to evolve into Flareon then you need to collect the corresponding icon during the fruit-drop mini-game instead of collecting your fifth and final piece of fruit. Your pet will then evolve in a few days, provided you continue to look after it.

Currently, this has only been released in Japan so securing one of these bad boys may be a little difficult. You can find a few left here for those of you who want a piece of childhood. Still, this pocket-sized throwback is unique in that it can tap into not one but two sources of nostalgia for millions of people all over the globe.
