Pokemon collectors collect many different things. Figures, cards, promo cards, plush toys, pokedolls, charms, keychains, and much more. I collect Pokemon canvas plush toys. Canvas plush are different from normal Pokemon plushies, tomy plush toys, pokedolls, and other stuffed toys. The Pokemon canvas plushies are smaller than most of the other Pokemon stuffed toys that you will find. Since they are smaller, they seem to have more detail. Take the Eevee evolution canvas plushies for example. They are some of the nicest ones I have ever seen. They cost a fortune at the moment because of their popularity and the fact that they sold out back in 2009. But these are worth every penny. They are so small and cute. The eyes are the best part. Each character has very nicely stitched eyes. In addition, they are put together really nicely. Not like some of the cheaper made plush toys that you will see. The seams are nicely put together. There is no loose thread or bad sewing. True, they are quite small when compared to other plushies, but then again, the best things don’t always come in large packages.

Regardless of the circumstances, there is no denying it: counterfeit Pokemon cards exist.
But what about cards that are not for sale on the internet? What about neighbors who sell cards? Tag / Estate sales often feature kind faces. The sellers are sometimes kids who believe that they have outgrown their Pokemon card collections. I am a kid so I trusted Cole* and his “kind” face. I was duped.

As games become more advanced due to developments in technology, so too has the ability to hack into them. This can have serious side-effects for players of the Pokemon game franchise.
Devices such as Action Replay are able to trigger events, create areas and high level or rare Pokemon not usually accessible by normal gaming means. Why this has become such a difficult issue is due to people trading and selling illegitimate Pokemon. For an unsuspecting gamer, suddenly finding the means to obtain rare Pokemon would seem like a dream come true. As many would probably say, this way of receiving Pokemon should not be trusted. Receiving a hacked Pokemon may cause implications not only during Wifi battles, but to the whole game itself.
