I've been on LJ forever and you may recognize me from some of the other similar buy/sell/trade communities, but for some reason I never joined this community... until now!
I collect a lot of toys; many are video game related merchandise, but my largest collection is My Little Pony. Right now I'm moving, so most of my collection has been packed up (*sob*), but I have a bunch of collection pictures on my Instagram: https://instagram.com/ringwraith10/ The few Pokemon toys I have are scattered around throughout all of the other toys -- I didn't have them organized by category (they're all friends!) but I will probably have a better organizational system after I move. I collect a lot of types of toys (as you can see in all of those pictures). With Pokemon I am mostly into the games, but have been watching the anime again since it was put onto Netflix. I mostly collect plushies, keychains and artwork. I have a lot of artwork, wall scrolls, posters, and such that are not currently on my walls (well, the house that I'm in now and that I am moving out of has really bad walls that don't hold pictures), so I don't have any pictures of those, but when I move I will have a dedicated collection room to showcase all of my toy collections.
I go to multiple anime and general geeky conventions every year (Dragon*Con is my staple), so I usually get merch that strikes my fancy on a whim when I am at said conventions. I do a lot of cosplaying, but for off days when I don't want to do an elaborate costume (or for Halloween) I wear either a Team Rocket costume or a Team Aqua costume -- so I am always looking for things that will add to the realism of those costumes (for instance, I have a Umbreon plush that I carry with my Team Rocket Grunt costume and I am always on the lookout for those elusive Burger King Pokeballs that were banned back in the day).
And as for the boring things about me, I'm a library associate, I'm going to finish my Master's degree in English soon, and when I move on to my PhD I hope to write about video games for my dissertation. Usually, however, my focus is on ecocriticism (a.k.a. animals and nature within works of literature).
My favorite general things include fantasy literature, J-RPGs, animals, and hiking. I watch the occasional anime, but I am more interested in video games than I am in TV, generally speaking.
Favorite Pokemon: Vulpix, Arbok, Shiny Furfrou, Lapras, Gardevoir... I could go on but we'd be really old by the time I finished.
Favorite Pokemon characters: All of Team Rocket (Esp. that grunt who asks you in one of the games if you want to join the team, and the game forces you to say no!), all of Team Aqua (the best team!), Brock (He's so silly... and I make fun of him a lot, but really he's awesome).
