Helloooo, everybodyyyy! My name is Rose, which I mainly prefer being called. Of course, you could call me Scarfy or Esme (the name of the Ralts I use as my mascot, huehue). I'm somewhat of an awkward slob, but I am dedicated to what I love. I love cartoons (Steven Universe being my absolute favorite), drawing, music, and a lot of other things. I am currently engaged, having a wonderful fiancée who loves and supports me through the way
... but you're here for my obsession with a franchise about powerful monsters you cram in balls, right? Right...
The first Pokemon game I ever played was Diamond, and ever since then, I was hooked and I still am today. I show my love for the franchise by... well, buying merchandise, particularly plush toys. They're so fun to collect and they're very cute and cuddly.
How did I get into plushy collecting. Well, it all started with this little guy[Spoiler (click to open)]
This is my Jakks Chatot plush. I bought this back in 2006/2007 in some geek-shop in a local mall. I remember they also had the Pokemon Advanced Battle line of figures there, but I bought this little birb. I will NEVER get rid of him for he is very special to me. As you can tell he has no tush-tag. I was a dumb kid.
But yeah, just like Pringles, once you pop you can't stop! My collection is years worth of throwing money at people.
Okay, now here's the rest of my collection! <3[Spoiler (click to open)]
Here's my little Pikachu army. The one on the far left is a plush I got from a Dave and Busters and the two Pikas with the large shine of the eyes I won from the Brookhaven Fair a few years back. The others I think are Hasbro plushes and I have no idea how I got them.
Psychic kitty collection. The only reason I don't have a female Meowstic is because I am a very smart person and thought I had one already when buying one of the males... I'll probably get around to obtaining a female in a few months when my birthday rolls around.
Pokemon Friends plushies! I think I got these for Christmas one year, but I'm not entirely sure. I really love these little guys for how tiny and well-made they are!~ I gotta be super careful with Smeargle since his blue paw print on the back is coming off...
I would love to collect more, but they're pretty expensive for their size. ^^'
My shelf of legendaries! Not much to say, other than I absolutely love that big Diancie I got! I got her from Nintendo World in NYC (thank Arceus I live in Long Island. Going to NYC is just a train ride away)
Okay, now to show off my misc stuff
Here's the top of my dresser! Nothing too notable here, but I still love all of these guys~ (and yeah, that's a Pikachu bank behind the Zorua and Zoroark)
Again, nothing too notable besides the Eevees.
Oh and you get a sneak peek of a certain collection here ;3
And now our feature presentation! The Ralts line collection! <3[Spoiler (click to open)]
I. Absolutely. Love. The. Ralts. Line.
Ralts is seriously my favorite Pokemon! It's just so dang cute, fun to use in battle, and its evolution are very awesome!~ I always use one on my team when available, and every playthough it has become a very valuable member of my team. I also just kinda find it "relatable" since its so shy and emotions highly affect it. I just want to hug iiiit!~
Now to my collection.
Look at all these guys all over mah bed!
Okay, so here my first two plushies, the ones that started this collection! I bought these two on the same day at Nintendo World. I remember the day before I bought, I saw a tumblr post about this Ralts plush and I squeed very loud. When I entered the Pokemon section, I immediately grabbed Ralts and squeed!~ (and had a girl my age laugh at how pathetic I was :P) But that's not all, I also found the Gardevoir keychain! To be honest, I like the Japanese version of these mascot plushes better since they have a little chain instead of this fat plastic thing. Oh well.
More Pokemon Center plushies!
Got the Mega Gardevoir for my birthday and Kirlia for Christmas.
This Jakks Pacific Ralts is actually pretty rare! Thankfully, someone had her available on Amazon. It was a bit expensive, but worth every penny. Right next to her is this ultra-cute Kuttari Gardevoir! I bought this before Wave 4 was released in the US. I thought Gardevoir was such a random choice for this kind of plush, but also very happy! <3 ... I wish they made a Gallade version D:
Shiny Mega Gardevoir! Although this is just a recolor of the other Megavoir, I still love this thing. It's so soft and cuddly! <3
Oh, and right next to her is actually not something I'd recommend. This right here is a bootleg made by a company known as OlyFactory! Their plushies are not official! Although some of their plushes look nice, don't get suckered into buying bootlegs like I did!
I already made posts about these guys, but here they are.
I ordered the San-Ei Ralts while I was at Myrtle Beach. I saw the announcement for the third wave of the All Stars plushes (where this is from) on Pokepolitan and immediately fell in love! While I was on vacation, someone was selling them and I couldn't wait until I got home. I ordered it in a heartbeat! <3
She is currently my favorite plush I own. She's absolutely perfect and adorable!~
Banpresto Gallade was a miracle. Normally he goes for a very high price due to his rarity, but I found mine for 30 bucks. Very nice! As of posting this, I have a Banpresto Kirlia coming to me in a couple of weeks! >u<
And finally, Banpresto Mega Gardevoir. She's very cute and I'm glad they made a plush that's not just a recolor of a previous plush!
Of course, this collection is still growing and I'm now getting into more serious collecting now.
Anyway, I hope you all have a nice day! :D
