Digimon handheld...or tamagachi??? I'm sure thousands of you remember back in the late 90's when the birth of handheld gaming came out... the tamagachi handheld device. Another item came out at nearly the same time.... The first digimon handheld game (based on adventure 01) released. Which did you buy, tamagachi or game? ( I'm not talking about the v-pet, I'm talking about the little device you had to shake endlessly for your digimon to "walk" around to defeat different enemy digimon as they came.) I got a digimon device, since it made no special difference to me. Plus it turned out as an added bonus for me when all of my friends' pets died because they sucked at taking care of them, while mine was close to finishing off the game.
