Hello everyone! I go by VerdantMew, but you are welcome to call me Verdant or any other variation of my username.
I am very excited to finally join this community after lurking on PKMNCollectors as an outsider for years. This forum is the very reason I developed an interest in collecting Pokémon paraphernalia as a hobby, and now I am far too deep into that passion to ever escape. It is all thanks to the members here that I am aware of even a fraction of the Pokemon merchandise available, and wow, there are so many obscure and fascinating items out there it blows me away. The more I discover, the more I enjoy this franchise's amazing community!
Regarding my collection, I have a soft spot (no pun intended) for plush from any era, ranging from the higher quality, more recent releases to the old and obscure, but I also love figures and cards. Tomy figures and those gorgeous statues from the short-lived Trading Figure Game are among my favorites. I do not have a lot of experience with flats beyond Pokémon cards, but I would like to purchase posters, setteis, and other art in the future.
My all-time favorite Pokémon is Mew (what gave it away?) because it was such a large and positive part of my childhood. I began teaching myself to draw because of my fascination with Mew's design, and I have never put down my pencil since! I am currently working on a website for my Mew collection to try to make information and pictures for some of the stranger items in my possession more accessible to fellow collectors. My second favorite is Leafeon, and among my other top choices are Eevee, Phanpy, Delphox, Bulbasaur, Xatu, and Porygon. I would like to delve into more robust collections for these, but for now, I am very happy with what I have.

Thank you very much for bearing with me. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I hope to make new connections and friendships here, and I look forward to being an active member of the community. I hope you have a lovely day or night!
