I usually obtain my Pokemon merchandise in-person in a store, though the Mewtwo plushie and a few rarer Pokemon cards I bought off of eBay.

I actually don't own much Pokémon merchandise at all really. I have all the games, but that is about it. :(

I have quite a bit of Pokémon merchandise scattered about my room here and there. I have to be careful when I buy any, as my mother normally gives me a lecture about how I'm just wasting away my money.

Just as long as she isn't throwing away or otherwise destroying said merchandise, she's not going over the top.

If you have bought it, then it is your property, so it would be crazy if she did anything to it.

Anyway, if we are on the subject of merchandise, what is peoples favourite piece?

Since my Meowth plushie is my only piece of merch, it wins by default.

But it is quite cute and fluffy, and I definitely appreciate that. Still have to hide Meowth from the rest of the family, though...

I usually get Pokemon stuff at conventions like a recent Comic expo that happened in my city, and the upcoming Otafest Anime convention.

If I had a penny for everytime I bought a Pokemerch for the past 6 years, I'd have none. Didn't even get the recent generation games after Gen III. It's not that I don't like them, it's just that after my SP broke I didn't feel like buying new consoles/handhelds anymore. :x

My spending on Pokemon fluctuates. It's on a high peak at the moment though cause of the recent release of the Dark Explorers TCG set.

I don't even look for Pokemerch outside of the video games. If my brother and his Yu-Gi-Oh card collection are any indication, any sort of trading card game can turn into a very dangerous addiction. I'd rather avoid that whole money pit in the first place.

Oh, but if anyone knows if they made Persian plushies, one would make the perfect companion to my Meowth one xD

It is a money pit, but I am good at controlling my spending really.

It's like morphine but legal.

But sometimes you have to realize that buying/getting something expensive/rare can be oddly satisfying...lol

Okay back on topic with Pokés. I don't keep track of the TCG decks but I really wish I did. Besides I don't have a friend that will even consider playing with me :(

Have you considered playing the Pokemon TCG online?

It's addicting... Quite fun, free for the basic decks, and has a nice tutorial online. You can play against a CPU, or others.
