Hi! I just joined this community so I wanted to make a quick intro post. I am a collector of video game merch in general including Pokémon! I don't have a big collection like a lot of the people here but I have items from many different lines/generations and a few specific sets I really like.
I really enjoy looking for Pokémon plush and figures on Chinese marketplaces such as Taobao and Xianyu. Not a lot of rare or desired merch shows up, but there is a lot of more modern merch that shows up for cheap and affordable prices there. Additionally, limited sets like Groundbreakers and Third Set for TFG show up pretty regularly and you can get factory samples and prototypes as well thanks to China being home of most Pokémon merch production. I'll share some of the interesting stuff I have picked up here from time to time!
My main interests and sets I like include Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, Gen 3 merch, Pokémon TFG, Pokémon Kid/ Finger Puppets and prototype figures. I additionally also really like the unofficial bootleg "Olyfactory/Frontwinner/Onlyfactory" 12" plush but I won't talk about them too much on here.
My favorite Pokémon is Breloom, but I don't specifically search or collect merch for it. I also love all 3 of the Gen 3 starters and their evolutionary lines. Once I post here some more I plan on offering some of the items I find for sale so keep an eye out! Thanks so much for reading!
