This is my first post, so I'd like to introduce myself. You can call me Orange and I became really attached to pokemon when I was five playing pokemon red and blue and I've played every game since then. One of the things I was most proud of when I was a kid was that I won the slots a ZILLION times and eventually got myself a Porygon! The Porygon line has been my favorite to this day, and I have a few figures and things in a small collection, but my camera is dead now so I'll have to show pics of those little guys later. I was thinking about collecting those exclusively, but before I decide to do that, I have a SERIOUS SERIOUS question: How in the world do you decide what pokemon to collect?!
I have lists and stuff below the cut. I'm not sure if I need one, but I'm gonna put one here just to be sure!
I love so many pokemon, and it'd be great to collect them all, but I don't think that's really practical.
A short list: Shuckle, Zigzagoon, Relicanth, Chatot, Spinarak, Wingull, Delibird, Swablu/Altaria Skarmory, Vullaby/Mandibuzz, and others. My favorite things are plushies, but many of the aforementioned pokes don't have plushies. :<
So, my serious question: How do you decide what pokemon to collect, when there are so many awesome pokemon?
Wants: (For now, will update later)
Zigzagoon Plush (Pokedoll?) (Expensive/Rare, I know)
Porygon 2 DX Pokedoll (I think it's one of those...I know that this is particularly rare/expensive, so...grail I think? :J)
Porygon family kids/figures
I'd also appreciate info on interesting, non-flat products on the list I mentioned (and plushies would be amazing!!)
I'm going to do my best to follow all the rules and keep up with guidelines. I'm also new to livejournal, so if I do something wrong, please let me know.
I look forward to being a part of this community! :3
