Nice Topic^^ I like your plush Oshawott, Mizu^^ Are you also going for the shiny one? I would really like to own one of the Unova shiny plushes ;_;
I was a cardcollector for many years, hunting for expensive cards, spending many money on them, so i still have all my cards with all their memories.
One of my most beloved cards from my collection is the Finalist Promo from the World Championship 2008, since it is hard to get and of course rare, since it was only given to the Finalists.
It is in the pic below, the other card is a Tropical Megabattle, also a very rare card from 1999, available to the winners on a tournament, which took place on Hawaii.
I love this Mew Trophy Promo, also an expensive card, but it looks awesome, so i had to get it...
Besides cards, i'am addicted to Pokemon Kids Figures, especially the Shiny ones, which are of course rare, since they were released in limited numbers in the japanese Pokemon lottery only. My newest addition is a Shiny Roselia, but my cam doesn't work right now, i will show a pic, when my cam works, so far, i show two of the later shinys from older pictures:
I also have an older pic of my Kyogre and Buneary Shiny Kids, will show on the next post...
I'am also collectiong Figures from the Nidoran-Line and Professor Oak stuff, i think human characters besides Ash and Team Rocket don't get enough attention on merch. I hope for some new Oak-figures with the new Anime. Will show pictures when cam works.
I got lots of pokemon related stuff like Kids figures, Tomys, Zukans...but i think i will concentrate on about 3 different evo-lines and the shinys...i don't have enough space left to keep all of them.
I was very excited for the World Championships in Vancouver, unfortunately i couldn't go there, but i like the merch, the Pikachu plushes and the design of the cards.
