Pokémon and Tamagotchi Team Up For a Special Eevee Version
You may recall a while ago we talked about how The Pokémon Company and Tamagotchi were planning to come together to make special versions of the pocket pet toy. It seemed like something that should have happened ages ago and would have made a ton of sense for the two to work together. Now we're finally seeing the fruits of that labor as images have surfaced showing an Eevee version of a Tamagotchi. These images show that it looks similar to the 20th-anniversary editions that Bandai (who owns the IP) released a couple of years ago. Looking at the packaging, you can evolve it into one of several Pokémon forms including Flareon, Jolteon, Vaporeon, Leafeon, Glaceon, Espeon, Umbreon, and Sylveon.
Pretty much everything about these from the LCD screen to the packaging to the way the unit is designed has the look and feel of the original Tamagotchi from the '90s, only this time around you'll probably have more options as to how to care for it. According to NintendoLife, there will be more options to evolve your Eevee into, including Pop Star Eevee, Team Rocket Eevee, and Ditto Eevee. No word yet on the official release date or how much they're going for, but considering the product and the Pokémon it's focused on, it's bound to be a best seller even if its for nostalgia sake.
