Pokedolls are all the rage, but I never really understood why! Well, not until I got my Giratina Origin Form Pokedoll, whom I named Pickles, almost 2 years ago! Pickles came from Nintendo World in New York, a fellow Pokemon collector decided to do a Pokedoll run, to help fellow collectors get their hands on those long sought after Pokedolls. For some reason, I was compelled to have my name added to the list for both a Giratina Origin Form and Shadow Lugia Pokedoll, though I did not really collect either Pokemon. Sadly, Shadow Lugia was out of stock, but I still gladly paid for Giratina Origin Form.
The moment I pulled Pickles out of the bubble envelope, it was love at first sight! Those little red eyes, that chibi fat wormy shape, and soft fabric! I was soon hooked on not just Pokedolls, but Giratina Origin Form! I now have a collection that consists of over 100 Giratina Origin Form items from official merchandise to custom works! Of course, there is still much more that I am seeking for my collection!
Not only was Pickles the start of my Giratina Origin collection, but she is also my travel buddy! Yes, here I am a 30 year old grown woman and I take my Giratina Origin Form Pokedoll everywhere that my boyfriend and I travel to! Age is just a number; one is never too old or too young, to enjoy Pokemon and all that it has to offer!
So far Pickles has been to Missouri, on a cruise to the Caribbean, Vegas, and even Atlantic City. She is a constant reminder of all the adventures my boyfriend and I have been on.
Later this year, Pickles will be making her first ever visit to California! I always make sure that I photograph Pickles on her numerous outings too, the photos make for fun memorable posts to sites like Facebook and Livejournal!
Now what are you waiting for! Everyone needs a travel buddy of their own and what better traveling companion than a Pokedoll!
