I got these 2 beautiful clear file/bookmark sets of the Kanto and Johto gym leaders from Y!J! They're so lovely. I'll probably take them out eventually, but I'm detabting if I want to keep all the bookmarks or sell of the ones I'm not a huge fan of. XD I already have the Brock one. The only thing I am a little torn about is that they feature Janine instead of Koga. I guess they're going by HG/SS timeline, and by then Koga was part of the Elite Four, but during FR/LG, Koga was still the gym leader! (
This awesome Vulpix restudan stamper that I had NEVER SEEN BEFORE from salamence646! I also got a Growlithe swing keychain from them. :) They were awesome and included the packaging for this stamper for me. I was so surprised, I didn't think Vulpix even had a restudan stamp! :O That's Pokemon Collecting for you, especially for first generation Pokemon! :D Always something else out there to find. I'm trilled to have this in my collection.
<3 I have a thing about collecting my favorite Pokemon in chibi stamp and metal swing keychain form. And I finally got Growlithe! I'll take a collection shot of my keychains another time.
The first shiny I ever caught was a Roselia in Diamond, so naturally I had to track down this official shiny Roselia kid! :D I named mine "Bouquet" and dubbed him the Emo Flower. (Becase of the rose colors? :D; Come on now.)
Ta-da! Brand new Spheal. My original Spheal had been purchased off of eBay ages ago and was quite pilled and didn't have a tush tag. So when I saw this beauty on Y!J for a BIN, I had to jump on it. I sold my original Spheal to another member, and a few days ago, my new one came! He's in much better shape, and has his tush tag!
Hard to tell in the photo, but his fur is not pilled at all. Very smooth velboa. :)
I'm still kinda hoping for a re-relase. A minky Spheal would be just so cool. :D
And in honor of the new Spheal, I took a few group photos of my Pokedolls! They usually sit on a shelf on my bookcase, but it's hard to see them all in there.
L-R: Nintendo World Flareon, Sunyshore Raichu, Nintendo World Torchic and Chikorita, Ebay Cyndaquil, Y!J New and Old Bulbasaurs, Sunyshore Venusaur, Y!J Tufty Pichu, Ebay Regular Pichu and Wooper, Y!J Spheal, Wobbuffet, Totodile, and Marill, Ebay Noctowl and Aipom, Sunyshore Meowstics M/F and Sylveon, Community Purchase Jigglypuff, and Y!J Emonga. (Not that ANYBODY cared about where I got them, but it was fun reminscing. ;D)
I was chatting with another member about how I like old Bulbsaur better. His colors just look so much more natural and the new one looks neon or something to me. XD; But they're both cute. The new one is just a bit of a fattie, haha. I also love posing old Bulbasaur on top of Venusaur, cause he looks so grumpy and Bulb is so obliviously happy.
Tufty gets the primo spot on top because he's the rarest of the bunch. XD I kind of want a Gizamimi Pichu to go along with with the Pichu brothers. :o
And my custom Sugar Stitch Vulpix and Rawst Berry! <3
Ignore Brightheart. >>; He was helping keep her up. She's a bit top-heavy.
My misc shelf of plushies, haha.
And my UFO Catcher win I <3 Gothic Gengar, and the amazing rainbow promo laying Pikachu. <3 EVERYONE loves that plush. They love him so much I've tucked him into the corner like this to prevent people from over-hugging. :o
And that's all for now! Next weekend I'll be traveling to Tokyo (with fellow community member pogaf! <3) for a week, so expect lots of pictures and cool stuffs in my next post! I'm so excited that our visit ended up being right after the opening of the new Center! :D
