Ohi, this is my first post here~ Waddup, I'm Iba, and I've been unintentionally lurking since, oh, probably around November of last year~ Finally decided to not be that creepy person who randomly comments on people's entries for a month and make an entry!

Let's see... I'd classify myself as a very casual collector. I don't have a set subject to collect because I like many Pokemon! I get whatever catches my eye, and I have no choice but to be picky of what to get due to money issues. Sooo, I try to get at least one thing of one Pokemon. I'm hoping to weed out my old collection for bigger and better things to replace, but that's on hold as I don't have sales permission yet. As of what I *am* keeping... well, some of it's a blast from the past. Let me show you.

Here is where the magic happens! I actually just got this shelf last week. If you look closely, there are non-Pokemon things on there, too, but I'll make sure to skip'em. Also if you look closely, you'd see Silver at the side there, derping around.

Where to begin?? I guess I'll start from the very top and make my way down.

Photobucket
Soo... this is a very bland start, but hey! Fun fact: there are Pokemon stuff in the pink shoebox, but they're not mine. Perhaps when I gain official ownerage of them, I will show them. :D But yeah, my Ash poster won from a carnival way back then is behind all dat junk, and at the front is a bookmark my elementary (or was it middle...?) school's library would give out. Oh, those kawaii times.

Photobucket
Underneath are various things such as chapter books, Pokemon Adventures manga from here in the U.S. and Singapore, some Pokemon comics such as Pikachu Boogaloo by that one hentai dude, game cases, the BW artfolio, a stylus given to me from my bro, and cut off at the corner... stickers!

Photobucket
Up close pic of the chapter books and manga~

Photobucket
And here are the chapter books laid out. Haha, I would order one of these from my school's Scholastic mag every time there's a new issue. I remember around the end of third grade my teacher told each of us of what she would remember us by... for me were these books. Actually, someone gave me one of these, which was super nice despite the fact the same kid stole one of my Pokemon erasers. 8|9

Photobucket
Part two~

Photobucket
And here are the non-Adventures comics with the pretty art laid out~

Photobucket
This came with my Pokemon Ruby pre-order years ago... Does anyone else have this? I've never seen anyone bring it up.

Photobucket
My stickers! I actually have A LOT of these, but these are the ones I'm keeping~

Photobucket
This is me holding my artfolio above my Pokemon hamper to kill two birds with one photo. Thinking of displaying the pictures somewhere. Dunno yet.

Photobucket
I don't even know where to begin. WELL... there are water bottles I got at the dollar store. There are some erasers I brought up earlier... some stickers. Actually, the bigger stickers were given to me by some kid back then, and I found them interesting because the backs were written in Japanese and whatnot. My Brock figurine at one point held a little paper that was cup-shaped that had STFU written on it for the lawls. THE MORE YOU KNOW.

Photobucket
More stickers (is James holding a gun in that pic srsly)! A few kids, Lugia pre-order bonus, TFG bought from psy_man, those neat BK Pokeballs with the gold thing inside, DAT MUDKIP. The "obscene" Dunsparce and the Slowpoke whistle (it really works!) were made by me.

Photobucket
Underneath that shelf are my plushes! A few more will eventually be chillin' with these guys in the future. I bought Emolga from blackfruitbat and the custom shiny Joltik is by MizzaMods at etsy.

Photobucket
Skipping the Digimon shelf, oh hay it's another bookmark~

Photobucket
The bottom shelf is occupied by cards, DVDs, and balls. I don't buy cards as much as I have back then, and yes, I used to play the game, too, haha. My season 1 DVDs are the Australian ones, which I heard have more episodes than a boxset from America?? The Darkrai movie, which is in Japanese with subs, is a bootleg.

Now to flaunt my bouncy balls at you!

And here they are together in all their blurry glory. Man, idek why I have so many of these. I also had duplicates that I cut open.

So that's the white shelf! But wait, I'm not done!

Photobucket
Just going to show you one of a few posters I have. Someone gave this to me from the thrift store. Pretty sure this is a bootleg, too, but I like it, anyway!

Photobucket
I've seen pictures of walls covered in Pokemon cards. I wanted to mimic that, but not to the extreme. Poor doors, never stood a chance. Anyway! The reason I'm showing this is behind these closed doors there are some more Pokemon books I've gathered in the past!

Photobucket
Yaaaaaaay.

Photobucket
Here's the inside of the first one.

Photobucket
Some more of the inside. This is the part where you all cry now.

Photobucket
Do any of you remember Beckett? That silly magazine that was morphing into Yu-Gi-Oh and kept changing its name until it got sued? 

Photobucket
My walkthroughs. The cover of Crystal's came off, whoops.

Photobucket
Idek what to say. It gets worse.

Photobucket
The inside of Write Your Own Adventures.

Photobucket
AND YES IT DID JUST GET WORSE. I have so many of these! Man, I remember when I first got the sticker books...

Photobucket
The inside of one of my tattoo books. Holy poop, I still have tattoos, gaiz!

Photobucket
I still can't believe there was a math book.

Photobucket
The inside of it.

Photobucket
Handbooks and... ruh oh, you guys. Prepare your anuses.

Photobucket

Photobucket
And then Ash never saw Butterfree ever again.

I MADE THIS POST PURELY TO MAKE YOU ALL CRY. REALLY.

Well, I'm done with that. What else do I have? Not much left, actually!

Photobucket
Gengar keychain from dark_gengar94. Currently on my bag!

Some other things I have: McDonalds 2011 calendar along with the poster it came with, old Pikachu plush, Ash Think Chip toy (no idea where he went atm), t-shirts, games, aaaaand I can't think of anything else right now. I'm also awaiting some things from the mail~

Also. Two things.
Photobucket
I am an arteest! Thinking of selling these in the future, but like I said earlier, I don't have sales permissions right now, so for now you guys can lookie~

And a question. I remember someone posting a video of upcoming BW stuff to hit American shelves. I remember there being backpacks in the shape of Pokemon such as Oshawott, Snivy, and Tepig. Does anyone have any info on these?

Anyway, hope you enjoyed this.

Until next time! o/
