Pochitchi (ポチっち) is an adult Tamagotchi that debuted on the second generation of the original Tamagotchi.
Pochitchi was present in the 15th Anniversary poll as a possible male adult.
Pochitchi resembles a round, yellow dog with stubby arms and legs. In his US artwork, he is more of a lime color and has no visible tail. On the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. app, he can also be pink or blue.
It looks like a dog and is a thoughtful Tamagotchi. Pochitchi likes to eat biscuits and for a hobby loves to go driving. Good natured and rare. It is also mischievous and likes marking its territory on everything it comes across. It has some very dog-like habits, but it is usually embarrassed when other Tamagotchis use this against it. Pochitchi sometimes barks to communicate and also plays a jaw harp.
The Nintendo Power guide to the Tamagotchi Gameboy game stated: "Pochitchi's happy face belies its stubborn streak. This dog-like creature likes imitating Earth canines, but it could use some obedience training."
His US profile reads "Sure he looks like a dog. But he's really just a well bred Tamagotchi. You've provided excellent caretaking if you see this rare bowser. He loves to drive. But don't worry, he won't drive away -- he has no car!"
