Violetchi (ばいおれっち Baioretchi) also known as Flowertchi (ふらわっち Furawatchi), and occasionally Leaftchi or Korotchi, is an adult character that debuted as a debug only character on on the Tamagotchi Connection Version 1 before appearing officially on the Keitai Kaitsuu Tamagotchi Plus. She is a recurring staple adult. On the Keitai, Tamagotchi Connection Version 2, and Tamagotchi Connection Version 3, Violetchi was originally any gender, but she has stayed female since the release of Chou Jinsei Enjoi Tamagotchi Plus. Violetchi was originally obtained with perfect care and was often compared to Mametchi. In recent releases, she is an average care character and in the iD L and its special editions she was obtained with bad care.
Violetchi likes flowers and loves smelling them. She loves all beautiful things. Some of her other hobbies include drawing pictures and going on bike rides. Her favorite color is pink.
According to her brother Kizatchi she is allergic to flowers, despite them being her favorite things. He also says she has a "cute" sneeze. Violetchi knows so much about flowers that each one has a different meaning to her. She even guides herself and her friends with them. She also enjoys gardening and enjoys observing them as they bloom.
Violetchi'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 Violetchi's nature. While her Japanese name Furawatchi is just a transliteration of flower, it could also be a reference to the aforementioned terms.
Design and name issues
While Violetchi has always been known as Furawatchi in Japan, she has gone through a number of renamings and redesigns for international media. While the rename was necessary in 2005 due to a name clash with that of another character, no official explanation has been given to Violetchi and her related species' redesigns.
Violetchi was originally introduced as one of the debug-exclusive characters on the Tamagotchi Connection, as was Flowertchi. While both of these characters remained unnamed until their second appearances and official debuts, Violetchi's came first on the Keitai Katsuu! Tamagotchi Plus and she was given the name Furawatchi. She would later make her international debut on the Tamagotchi Connection Version 2 alongside the newly-named Flowertchi.
While a number of modern Tamagotchi characters share their names with vintage ones, this would be the first case in which two modern characters would share the same name in both English and hiragana due to romanization issues if both were left untouched. While Flowertchi would remain unused after the V2, Furawatchi became a mainstay for the franchise.A press kit sent to TamaTalk suggested that on the V2 the name Korotchi was introduced for Fuwaratchi and she had no artwork of her character as of 2005. Another press kit for the V3 the next year suggested that she was given a new skin color, green, and her green flower changed to blue. She was given the name Leaftchi with these changes. However, Leaftchi appeared as the Keitai's Furawatchi when visiting TamaTown.
The entire Corner Shop series and in the later releases of the Connection series starting with the V4 introduced her final color, purple. Her final name Violetchi, was also introduced. This is how she appears outside Japan; in all merchandise and images and in regards to the virtual pets, she has this color and name. Ura Fuwaratchi, Ura Young Furawatchi and Mamafurawatchi would also undergo similar renamings and redesigns.
In Tamagotchi Connection: Corner Shop 2 her name was not changed, but her skin color was reverted to her original pink skin color. When Let's Go! Tamagotchi was dubbed, her name was kept as Flowertchi and her skin remained pink akin how it was reverted in Corner Shop 2. These aspects continued on when Tamagotchi! was given an English dub.
Violetchi has not made any named appearances on an international virtual pet since the TamaTown Tama-Go was released around the same time that Let's Go! Tamagotchi and Tamagotchi: The Movie were dubbed, and as such it is currently unknown what Bandai's stance on her official English name is.

In the Anime
As described in the Let's Go! Tamagotchi episode, "Do You Remember, Flowertchi?", given that Flowertchi had once spent all of her time tending the school's flowers, she didn't know how to make friends. However, following on from an incident with Memetchi, they became friends. Since then, Flowertchi became increasingly popular with her classmates.
Flowertchi also made an appearance in Helping at McDonald's, where she worked alongside Mametchi, Memetchi, and Kuchipatchi to assist Makdotchi. She also appears in Mametchi's Picture Diary and Hapihapitchi is Popular?!.
In the Tamagotchi! anime series, Flowertchi 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. In episode 25, a flower causes Flowertchi to think of Gozarutchi as her "prince charming", and tries various ways to get his attention. However, she sometimes appears to lose interest in him when the flower changes. When this happens, she is likely to attempt to poke him with a staff.
