Well, after a while they decided I had more than enough pokemon cards, and I was to young to have an allowance and to the common person, pokeplushies vanished off the market, so for a while I had to settle with just the games for holidays. Years more went by and I could never find any merchandise. It vanished out of game stores, away from toy stores. Then suddenly pokemon felt like it started to grow big again. Merchandise started to appear again, and I came to realize it never really 'dissapeared', you just had to know where to look. So while my collection has dwindled (Things broke, things got thrown out), I'm ready to pick it back up.
This is all that's left. My most recent additions were my Oshawott, and my replacement pokemon gameboy (I had one as a kid, but was convinced to sell it). Oshawott was a purchase at a local convention.
Now even though I enjoy all pokemon items, my absolute favorite thing are plushies. I am a plushie fanatic!! When I was little the plushies were the closest thing to having a real pokemon. I spent hours at six, tossing that charizard off a balcony to teach it 'fly'. The pikachu plush on the far right was my best friend growing up, and right hand (Poke)man! He'll probably be with me for a very long time. ;3
So what are my favorites? Behold:
What's my eventual goal? A legit plushie of as many pokemon as I can get. The gaps will be filled in by bootlegs and customs if there is no official plushie for that pokemon. And Raichu plushies... As many as possible!
Anyway, it's nice to meet you guys! Expect to see me around.
