    I had one back in middle school I think. Couldn’t you battle against a friend?

      It wasn’t the tamagotchis that did that, it was a couple of other brands. Digimon was one, and I cant remember the name of the other. There were so many brands of digital pets during that fad, Gigapets, Digimon, Tamagotchi, Virtuapets. This almost makes me want to pick one up on amazon, lol.
