My name is Jessica, I am 19, and I've been a fan of Pokemon since....well, as long as I can remember!
My main man here is Oshawott, and yep, you guessed it, he is what my main collection consists of! Would you believe me if I told you that I really did not intend for my collection to grow as big as it has?
*prays that the cut works*
Alright so Pokemon has been a huge part of my life! If you see a picture of me when I was little, I'm probably holding a Pikachu in the picture. In fact, here is one of my favorites. My mom used to make me do pageants when I was younger and would bribe me with Pokemon cards and whatnot.
What? Trophy? Who cares look at this super rad Pikachu I got
And now you tell me that I can actually take Pikachu to Pokemon Pageants and dress it up? AMAZING.
But getting to the point, Pikachu was my favorite Pokemon for a long time, and I know a lot of people think that is cliche. But he was moved aside when Black and White came out. Right when I saw the reveal for Oshawott, I knew he was going to be my starter. I was heartbroken when I saw so many people calling him ugly!
I defended Oshawott and loved him as my starter- although I only evolved little Oswald into a Dewott.
I didn't really have any Oshawott merch besides a plush, but man my friends and family started getting me so many Oshawott things for my birthday and for Christmas. Most of my collection to this day is just gifts! But I did start going to conventions a few years ago, so I have been able to buy some neat Oshawott stuff and other Pokemon too!
Nowadays I draw and sew plushies, these are a few Pokemon ones I've made!
I also foster kittens for the Humane Society, much to the dismay of some of my plushies, who have lost their tags due to the destructive fuffballs.
But here is my collection so far!
Here are some closer pics:
Aside from Oshawott, I also have a small collection of Pikachu & other electric rodents:
(I wish I could say that talking Pikachu in the back was the same one from the paeant photo, but sadly it is not)
I have a bunch of other Pokemon things too, but maybe I will show them at another time, because this post is getting a little long ^^
Thank you and I hope to get more involved in this community!
