This article is about the object. For the character, see UFOtchi.
A UFO ("Unidentified Flying Object") is a type of vehicle used by Tamagotchis to travel to and from the Tamagotchi Planet. Their size and appearance varies, and they appear infrequently on the virtual pets.
As part of Tamagotchi's origin story, when the Tamagotchi Planet got drunk and began to sing, the Tamagotchis fled from their Planet in UFOs. One UFO crashed to The Earth in the Sumida River, where Professor Banzo and his assistant, Mikachu, found it. The UFO was damaged and the Tamagotchis inside could not survive in Earth's atmosphere, leading to the development of the Tamagotchi toy.
