Bringing up an old discussion, well, you know as Pokemon is a huge franchise, there are lots of merchandise, besides the games and the trading cards. Have you, over the years, collected and owned merchandise? For example, plushes! There are a bunch of pokemon plushes, as well as some figurings, and so on.

So...

Besides the games what Pokemon merchandise do you own?

Do you still actively collect or are all your Pokemon items from years ago?

What is your favorite item out of your Pokemon collection?

Have some Pikachu plushies that I won from one of those claw-machines. My brother also has a Blastoise plushie. I have also had a Pokemon T-shirt with Ash, Pikachu and those main type symbols. I also have still a Pokemon towel with some pokemon (Such as Staryu, Parasect, Pikachu and some more I can't remember) However, I don't collect them anymore. I actually like the Blastoise plushie even if it isn't mine lol xD

I still actively collect Pokemon merch, and I have a huge collection of figurines (both big and small), plushies and cards (merely for the sake of collecting, I don't play the TCG) plus some other official stuff that I happen to run into. Second-hand shops and garage sales are great places to find older stuff like really old figurines, plus they're usually pretty cheap!

Can't get enough of those little, neatly detailed figurines from the Gacha balls, they are just wonderful. My favourite out of the ones I own has got to be the little Palkia, it's just really boss. :D

My favourite plushie is either this super-cute Raikou plush or the Celebi one my sister got me as a birthday gift. C:

As of now, I don't think I own any Pokemon-related items that aren't video games. Although my N64 is the limited edition Pikachu one, if that counts? (It doesn't count...)

In the past, however, I probably did have some sort of merch - probably gifts from distant relatives who just bought something Poke-related as a quick alternative to finding out what I actually wanted for Christmas/birthdays/whatever - but anything that I did have I can't remember and is probably collecting dust in the attic or ash in an incinerator somewhere. Bye, potentially lost memories!

Lots of plushes, yeah. >_> Figurines of Pokemon and Poke Balls too. I don't have a whole lot because... well, I just can't find them.

The most recent one I have is the Pikachu DSi Charger (http://www.destructoid.com/pikachu-dsi-charger-is-cute-has-unfortunate-port-182525.phtml) and my favorite so far is my Team Rocket t-shirt (http://www.qwertee.com/product/team-rocket/). *love*

I don't have much that's not cards or the games. What I do have are a Snorlax and Poliwhril plushies, a couple small figures, and a talking pikachu toy that is my all time favorite.

I still have about 150+ trading cards and <20 miniature toys. The only things I don't have anymore are a large 3x5 ft scroll for the wall and a Ash's hat. (both sold at a garage sell)

Apart from the games and trading cards, I've owned some Pokemon figurines, dolls and keychains (including the Pokemon keychains that come with a mini Poke Ball).

The TCG, and a few seasons of the manga, and plushies! But, I don't know where they are now though. I kinda lost them when we were moving. :(

Do you still actively collect or are all your Pokemon items from years ago?
Like I've said, I kinda lost them when we were moving.

What is your favorite item out of your Pokemon collection?
The plushies because they're so adorable!

Only a few things. I'm not a big Pokemon collector like I would've been as a kid.
- Pikachu and Torchic plushies. I especially like Torchic.
- A few small figurines: Pichu, Wooper, Omanyte, and the Ho-Oh one that came out with HG.
- And a Pokemon t-shirt with Pikachu on it.

I had a few more things in the past, like a few toys and that Mewtwo golden-looking collectible card that Burger King (iirc it was BK) sold when the first Pokemon movie came out. I wonder if my parents still have it?

I still have nearly every piece of Pokemon merchandise I ever bought. I might be missing a few notebooks or folders that were destroyed from constant use, but that's really it. Everything else is still packed away in boxes. Mostly plushies, which is what I focused on after the TCG and books.

Currently, I don't do any collecting. I plan on getting back into collecting now that B/W is out, and I can get some Oshawott merchandise.

My favorite piece of merchandise? That would have to be my Gym Leader shirt, from when I ran a TCG League for a while. Yes, it's bright yellow, but I have never seen anyone else with one of those, so I'm glad I still have mine. Not only because it's rare, but also because of the memories attached to the shirt.

All I have (that's been officially released) is a Meowth plushie that I use strictly for cosplay purposes. I bought it last year at an anime convention. I also have a Blue/Leaf cosplay outfit that I commissioned, but it's not an official product.

I have a feeling that if they would release figurines of the trainers, not just the Pokemon, I'd buy a couple of them (particularly if it was Blue/Leaf).

I won a Piplup plushie from a claw machine in my local Movie Theatre last summer! I had a meltdown of happiness and everyone was staring at me! xD
When I was three, for christmas my cousin got me a pikachu stuffed animal, that made sounds and its cheeks glowed. :3 Sadly, this was lost when we moved a short time later that year.
This isn't really mine, but my brothers birthday just past, and one of his friends got him a DSi case with the 3 isshu regian starters on it.
I also had Jessie and James figures when I was younger, but these were also lost when we moved. :/
I also used to have lots of pokemon cards back in 98', but my mom through them out!
I don't collect anything pokemon related though xD

I have unplayable cartridges Pokemon Yellow and Silver, that's it. Everything else has been sold or broken at some point.
Buying anything else than the games would only be feeding corporate greed anyway. Then again, it's not like buying Pearl wasn't...

I used to have a Togeppi plushie, which disappeared somewhere some time ago (curses!!) and I have a Pikachu collectible figure which came with a cool marble. ^^ That´s about everything if I don´t count the games. We really don´t get much Pokémon where I live (sadface).
