I've been a Pokemon fan since the very beginning, although I drifted away from it in my teens because my brother was super good at videogames and intimidated me away, haha. But I was always more into the merch anyway! My mom bought us nearly two (one of each) of everything for awhile, because she was more into collecting Pokemon than we were! She still refuses to let us sell any of it...But the result of that a decade later is a big pile of plushes and figures to return to! And my brother doesn't want his anymore, so all the better for me, haha.
I do actually have a reason behind this post, though. I've been home for a few days and I looked through a pile of plushes by my bed. This is only a fraction of all the stuff, everything else is scattered all over the house...But I want to see what I've got here. Alot of it is from like, 1998 to 2001, I think?
In the summer of 2001 we were in Japan visiting relatives and went to the Pokemon Center in Osaka, so some of the stuff we have is from that. But the reason I'm vringing that up is cause I want to ask about that Chikorita...Is she a plushplush?
She's got writing on her tushtag and her eyes are very scuffed, but other than that she's in good condition. I read a little bit about plushplushes, and I think the timeline makes sense...I just looked at her and suddenly realized! It makes me want to dig around the basement to see what else we have.
Anyway, I hope I didn't make too many horrible errors and html goofups in this post! My finger is achy now :P
