Furawatchi (ふらわっち Furawatchi), also known as Violetchi in international virtual pet releases (and Flowertchi in the English anime adaptations), is an adult character that debuted on the Keitai Kaitsuu Tamagotchi Plus. Furawatchi was a raisable adult of any gender until the Chou Jinsei Enjoi Tamagotchi Plus, and has been regarded as a female character in all releases since. Furawatchi in earlier releases was obtained with perfect care, however in modern releases, such as the Tamagotchi iD L, she is obtained with poor care.
Furawatchi is softhearted and easygoing, and is very knowledgeable about flowers and gardening. She has a profound understanding of flowers and their individual meaning, to the point that she uses them to help guide herself and her friends through them. Aside from flowers, Furawatchi loves the color pink, drawing, and going on bike rides.
Furawatchi's personality could be considered to contain yurufuwa (ゆるふわ)-type qualities. The term "yurufuwa" is a combination of "yurui"/"yuruyuru" (ゆるい/ゆるゆる loose, lenient, easygoing) and "fuwari"/"fuwafuwa" (ふわり/ふわふわ light, gentle, soft) and refers to something that is relaxing, easygoing, warm and gentle, which effectively sums up Furawatchi's nature.

In the Anime
Furawatchi is a minor character in the Tamagotchi anime series.
In Saa Ikō! Tamagotchi, Furawatchi has trouble making friends as she is too focused on tending to the school's flower garden, only coming out of her shell following an incident with Memetchi. Since then, Furawatchi became increasingly social and more popular with her other classmates.
In the Tamagotchi! anime series, Furawatchi appears as a recurring character alongside with Mametchi and his friends. She is is often seen with Makiko and Memetchi. She hates it when they fight and often uses flowers to help her settle their argument.

International Name and Design Changes
Furawatchi is referred to as "Violetchi" in international releases and media, and is portrayed with a darker purple complexion. Ura Fuwaratchi, Ura Young Furawatchi and Mamafurawatchi would also undergo similar renamings and redesigns. Violetchi has not had any named appearances on an international virtual pet release since the TamaTown Tama-Go in 2010.
Though she is referred to as Violetchi in Tamagotchi Connection: Corner Shop 2, she retained her pink-bodied Japanese design.
In the English dubs of the Tamagotchi anime releases, her name was changed to "Flowertchi".
Bandai has not released any statement regarding her international name and design changes.
- Although she is said to be allergic to flowers in Tamagotchi Connection: Corner Shop 3, this is not seen anywhere else. For example, in the anime she is always around flowers but she never sneezes.
- In Tamagotchi Connection Version 4 and Chou Jinsei Enjoi Tamagotchi Plus, Furawatchi is part of the Meme Family - related to Memetchi. However, in Tamagotchi Connection Version 5, she is part of the Smart Family, which is related to Mametchi, and will evolve from Mimifuwatchi when the Violet Family is created. Kizatchi however will evolve from Omututchi, the baby associated with Memetchi and the Cheerful and Meme Families.
- On the Music City website, Violetchi can be seen in the Flower Hills Park, in the game Wobbly Flower Pots, and also the game Violetchi's Recycling!.
- Furawatchi is obtainable as a "debug character" on both the Tamagotchi Plus and the Tamagotchi Connection, but was officially introduced as a raisable character in the Keitai Katsuu! Tamagotchi Plus and theTamagotchi Connection Version 2 (as "Violetchi").
- It is believed Furawatchi's rename to "Violetchi" in international releases was due to the presence of another flower-themed character on the Tamagotchi Connection Version 2, Flowertchi, who only appears as a "debug" character in Japan. No official explanation has been given to Violetchi and her related species' redesigns.
- Furawatchi is sometimes incorrectly referred to as "Leaftchi" (and occassionally "Korotchi"), and portrayed with edited character artwork giving her a green body and altered character sprite on fan-created growth charts for the Tamagotchi Connection Version 3. Where the claims of her changed name and appearance originated is unknown, as Furawatchi appears in the official V3 commercial in her "Violetchi" form, and regarded on the now-defunct TamaTown interactive website as "Violetchi" as early as 2005.
