Diamond & Pearl because I grew up with it as well as any prize card as well as every alt Art / illustration rare. I’m not a huge fan of wotc except for neo

90% Old school promos, specially Japanese and some random modern promos which tickle my fancy.

Promo cards because all my childhood i felt unnoticed and pushed aside. I always wanted to stand out and be noticed. Promo cards capture that for me. They are made with the intent to stand out, to promote, it felt right once i started and now i love it.

Depends what you mean and if you are only talking pokemon. In strictest sense of collecting where I will catalogue the collection and keep track of every bit of it while looking out for missing items to add to the collection, it would be my deck collection. In the loosest sense, all english sets I guess.

Why? Because nostalgia and memories for playing the theme decks, and that turned into wanting all that I could find when i came back to pokemon, and that turned into wanting them all, and that turned into keeping up with them while looking for all variants.

Modern because nearly every release of the last year has about 15 new surprises to choose from

WOTC English cards. That’s what me and my friends collected as children.

I decided to limit myself to that era to keep my collection manageable and so that I didn’t feel overwhelmed needing to keep up with every new set release.

I also don’t go out of my way to collect missprints as those are almost endless and that would stress me out trying to get them all.

Mostly Base-Diamond and Pearl era because that’s what I was going for as a kid. I have some modern cards too but it’s definitely not my priority right now.

Pokémon Card Trainers Magazines … They’re extremely interesting and a material I use for researches …

Also e-Cards because of their use with Nintendo e-Reader. That’s why I prefer Non Holo in the case of the cards from this era … Also because of the artwork!!!

I like to collect anything Eevee, little figures, coins, art work, what ever I can get my hands on really and of course Eevee cards! I absolutely love Eevee ever since I watched the battling brothers episode when I was a little girl. I always thought there was something so beautiful about that episode, having the opportunity to become any one of the 3 types of evolution or staying exactly the same as you are and that’s being more than enough, too cute. When people ask me what my favourite Eeveelution is and it always so hard because hands down Eevee will alway be my favourite Pokémon and I will grab anything as long as it has an Eevee on it
