The Devilgotchi or Tamagotchi Devil is one of the most coveted tamas ever released. It was released in Japan only in 1998, and came in four colors; white, black, pink, and purple/white. Today, this sought-after tama can go for as much as $300 a piece.
The Devilgotchi is considered the counterpart to the Angelgotchi. The Angelgotchi allows players to raise an angel, while the Devilgotchi has a devil. The Tamagotchi Angel was released in both Japan, North America, and Europe, but the Devil was only released in toy form in Japan. The Tamagotchi MonsterJava app was available for old flip phones for a while in many countries.
