For him to gain his strength back, he must gather all of the Dragon Balls before Frieza.

You must help Goku locate the Dragon Balls scattered around town and help maintain earth’s peace!

    Bandai have announced they will release two Tamagotchi centred on Eevee from the Pokémon franchise on January 26, 2019. They will be available at major toy shops, department stores and electronic stores in Japan.

    Sized at an adorable 4cm in diameter, owners can look forward to raising their very own Eevee. This Pokémon is known by fans for its many elemental evolutions obtainable through various methods throughout the games. For example, when given a Thunder Stone it will evolve into Jolteon, or when levelled up near an Ice Rock it will evolve into Glaceon.

    The same goes for your Tamagotchi Eevee. By feeding it, brushing it and through other activities after hatching from its egg you can transform Eevee into one of 8 possible evolutions. Eevee will also show different expressions and behaviours depending on how you treat it. Look after it lots and it will be happy, but ignore it and it will grow timid.

     

    Catch your own Eevee-inspired Tamagotchi and raise it into your favourite evolution!
