Good Arceus, What a cheesy title! Hello, community. I'm known as Kid Gengar and as you guessed it by the name, I specialize in the Shadow Pokemon, Gengar...or at least, I try to. The competition is fierce sometimes!
I also collect Darkrai and ironically, I think I like collecting Darkrai slightly better because he always gets epic figurines and speaking of that, my favorite type of merchandise are figurines! He's also more affordable, sometimes
My third favorite Pokemon is Metagross. He isn't spooky or shadowy but he always saved my gluteus maximus when I used to do competitive battling back in Diamond and Pearl and have come to respect him very much as a Pokemon. Despite getting hit with a nerf bat the size of Wailord this generation, I still think he's an amazing Pokemon. Metagross also reminds me of my grandpa.
Speaking of Grandpa, what if I told you... that my first Pokemon was given to me by my very own grandfather? Grandpa is the reason I have come to like Gengar so much. If Pokemon were real, I would have had a fully evolved glass cannon at my disposal as a kid. That would have been scary fun
at the hands of a maniac like myself.
In my journal, I wrote how this came to be if anyone's interested and I also address my most faq: How did this name stick to me like super glue? Even my friends just call me Gengar; I don't think people remember my "real" name, haha.
Sadly, I have NO merchandise of Metagross yet because I'm always bumping into more important Gengar and Darkrai stuff and I get that instead of investing money into the majestic steel titan.
But I will get to him probably next month!
My other favorite is Giratina; I really like it because it's actually one of the few Ghost Types that actually interest me besides Gengar. Platinum is also my favorite Pokemon game; my second favorite is Crystal version.
He also pops up in cemeteries so maybe I'll meet Giratina someday during my "ghost hunts". I'm interested in the paranormal. I also like coconuts.
My new favorites are Aegislash and Trevenant. I ALWAYSSSSS
wanted a Ghost and Steel type and got so hyped when I found out about Honedge. FINALLY, my dream came true. Then they nerfed Steel to the ground.
It was a sad day. But Aegislash is still super cool. I really like complicated and edgy
designs...AND SWORDS! Trevenant was a welcomed addition to my X and Y team and he really GREW
These puns are killing me.
I can't wait to at least get my hands on the new Honedge kid figure I found out about thanks to this community.
I have a humble collection that has been growing steadily over the past months.
In contrast, my wallet has also been shrinking. xD
Bah, but enough boring word stuff. Here's a few pictures pictures of what I have so far and I have even acquired a priceless Grail from the community and my first Giratina items! I have tried to keep the pictures as small as possible while still big enough to see details. Also,because I have a potato camera phone, they're not epic Mega Mewtwo Y quality. I tried to retouch them a bit in Photoshop so they look more bright and colorful and not as potato-ish. I haven't included everything here because I think it would make this post stale and really laggy; the rest can be seen on my newly made Flickr if anyone's still interested!

Thank you for looking!
I now bring you these absolutely disgusting bootlegs I had laying around as my "specially nightmarish" thanks for sticking around. The horrors await under the cut.

WHY. OH WHY. THEIR FACES. IT MAKES ME SHED TEARS OF BLOOD. I don't know what they were thinking.
I'm very happy to finally have the time to say hello to the community. I joined almost three months back and have been too busy collecting to get everything organized and finally make an intro post. I'm the king of procrastination, unfortunately! Sweet nightmares everyone.
