    Hey everyone!

    You will most likely have seen a thread like this in a lot of other places, but you can use this thread to chat with the other members that visit TCG & Collectibles! Feel free to discuss absolutely anything you like (as long as it follows forum rules), it doesn't need to be specifically about the Pokemon TCG or the many different collectibles. But ensure you be mindful of the other users. :)

    Enjoy!

    For curiosity sake, how did everyone start their collections?

    I remember when I was young, asking my parents for Pokémon cards. My first holo was a Kangaskhan from Jungle. :D My parents also bought me some Pokémon merch like a plush Pikachu. But I didn't really start buying my things until I had my own money.

    I remember asking my family for Pokemon cards and Bandai figures from gens 1 and 2 forever ago. I also got a few board games (Pokemon Yahtzee, Pokemon monopoly, Pokemon Sorry!, etc) and a ton of plushies. Anddd I remember getting Pokemon shaped macaroni and cheese and cutting out the collectible "coins" from the boxes. Every year for Christmas and my birthday, it was mostly Pokemon stuff on my wishlist.

    Yeah, I had a lot of nonsense. I still have it all packed away somewhere. Now, I just buy new generation games as they come out, and I'm trying to collect 1 TCG card for each Pokemon - even if I don't play the game or get any of the rare, "useful" cards. : ' ) It's like Pokedex completion, TCG card style!

    When I collect I try to aim for things that have meaning to me. Like my Bewear Pokédoll reminds me of my Lulu that I used in my first playthrough of moon. I kinda do this in hopes I don't splurge but it's often no use. xD

    Did someone say splurge?

    That feeling when you're adult so you only get money for Christmas and then you're tempted to just use that money to buy Pokemon stuff...
