In a surprise collaboration with Bandai, Tamagotchi will be releasing a special Eevee Edition which allows players to care for (and evolve!) an Eevee of their own. These will be released in Japan in January of 2019 and retail for about $20 US. The devices come in two colors, “I Love Eevee” (brown) and “Colorful Friends” (pink). Unique to the Eevee Tamagotchi are the ability to collect its furballs (that’s a feature?) and feed it Pokémon food.
Although some sites have claimed that there is a new evolution for Eevee within the devices, this is incorrect. Like many Tamagotchi pets there are rare forms, which in this case includes a Team Rocket Eevee, an Eevee Ditto and more.
What happens if you forget about your poor Eevee? It won’t die like a Tamagotchi (luckily). Instead, it will simply leave its Poké Ball and escape to freedom. Phew!
Let us know what you think of this collaboration and if you’d buy it! It’s certainly tempting…
Oh! And don’t forget we have a Discord chat to talk to fellow trainers in!
