Newbie Intro + Collection Pics + Wants

Hey everyone!  I just got accepted to this community earlier today and I'm really excited about it!  I just thought I'd post to introduce myself and my collection!

My name is Gabby; I'm a 17 year-old who is attending college in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (though I'm originally from Rhode Island).  I've been a huge Pokemon fan since just after Gold and Silver came out.  I didn't really collect merchandise then, other than having some trading cards (no valuable ones) and a few big figures - Totodile, Chikorita, Pikachu, Lugia, Spinarak, Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres.  I treated that Totodile like a teddy bear even though it hurt to hug him because he was hard and plastic >.<

I really got into the collecting mood last year when I got into shiny hunting in my Pokemon games.  I think I have 33 now across 3rd, 4th, and 5th gen games, with my most recent one being a shiny Ponyta that I got yesterday!  If anyone here goes on Serebii's forums, Pokemon community, or Shiny Hunters United, you might have seen me around.

Anyway, on to collection stuff.  I've always been a huge fan of plush but didn't discover the existence of Pokemon plush (POKEDOLLS!!!) until I happened across the Nintendo World in NYC and saw the Pokedolls.  I'm an especially huge fan of Piplup and Treecko, though the only Treecko item I have right now is a Pokedoll >.<  I then discovered Sunyshore when looking for a Keldeo Pokedoll, and my true collecting began!

I don't have good pictures of my collection together because I didn't bring all of them to college with me due to space issues.  I might have my parents ship them to me though because I miss my Treecko =,(

This guy didn't make it into the group photo because he lives on my backpack!

All of the plushies that are at college with me right now!

I also have Treecko, Mudkip, and Keldeo Pokedolls as well as a Sad Ganbare Piplup, but I couldn't fit them when I moved.  I will take pictures when I go home for break!

Also, here is what started my Piplup fandom:
ceramic piplup
I made this for my final project in Ceramics class last year and he is what REALLY got me into Piplup.  That and the shiny Piplup I got in my Platinum version ^.^


I don't have a lot of money to be spending, but when I do I'm mostly looking for:
-Piplup Stuff (especially Piplup Pokedoll, who I cannot believe I didn't get in NYC!)
-Treecko Stuff 
-Sceptile Stuff
-ANY SHINY POKEMON STUFF!!!  Especially plush!  This can be for any Pokemon, but I'd especially like shiny Piplup, Empoleon, Kyogre, Sceptile, Treecko, or Lugia!

Well, I guess that's it =)  Thanks for reading everyone, I look forward to getting to know some of you guys!
