Have you seen the new Eevee Tamagotchi models available in Japan? It’s totally adorable! Of course, I had to pick one up, and I used the opportunity to film an unboxing video! In the video, I also hatch my first Eevee and go through how to play it in Japanese. Check it out below!
I ordered the tan, だいすきイーブイ (love Eevee) version from Amazon Japan with a forwarding service since they don’t ship directly to Australia. It ended up costing me about $50 all together. There is also a version with a pink face called カラフルフレンズ (colorful friends) that tends to be at least $10 cheaper than the love Eevee version, and is completely the same in terms of the internal Tamagotchi itself.
Some sites are really inflating the price of the Eevee Tamagotchi (and it’s already pretty expensive for a basic Tamagotchi), so be careful where you shop! I recommend going the Amazon Japan route if possible. If you need a forwarding service to forward it to your country, I have a detailed post about my experience using Tenso, which is the company I use for all forwarding from Japan.
I wanted what evolution I got to be a surprise, so I haven’t used a guide on any of my attempts. The truth is, my very first Eevee left because I neglected it! During my flight to the US at the end of February, I forgot to take it out of my backpack. When I arrived in the US, I finally remembered to have a look… And my Eevee had run away, leaving only an empty Pokeball and the words “bye bye.” So sad!
Luckily, my second attempt went much better! After a couple of days, my Eevee evolved into Sylveon. Sylveon is one of my favorite evolutions, so I was totally thrilled! I’m actually still taking care of the same Sylven. It’s so cute, I can’t bring myself to reset! The next evolution I’d like to try for is the secret Team Rocket Eevee. One of these days I’ll either neglect my Slyveon enough that it runs away, or decide I’ve had enough and reset.
