Great Pokémon Collectibles

Raiding the archives to find random collectibles

Thought that collecting 493 Pokemon was hard? If you're a hardcore Pokémon fan there's loads of stuff to collect besides digital monsters. From limited edition handheld consoles to toys and even toothbrushes here's a random collection of great collectibles that every Pokémon fan would surely like to own. You'll have to search for them though - most of these collectables aren't available in the shops (at least not in the UK) so eBay might be your best bet!

Pokémon Jr Adventure Game

A strange little card game. A narrator reads the story while players train up their Pokémon and do battle with wild Pokémon and Trainers.

Torchic GBA

There were many Pokémon-themed GBAs for sale in Japan. This Torchic GBA is the most understated (you can barely see the Torchic detail on the top) and was only available from the Japanese Pokémon Center.

Poképark DS

This is a special edition DS designed to promote the Pokémon theme park in Nagoya, Japan.

Fairground Toy

You know those crane games you see at the fairground? Japan's crazy for this kind of thing so there were plenty of Pokémon toys made especially for these machines. These are pretty popular among collectors.

Togepi Toys

These Togepi toys are brilliant. The biggest one does nothing apart from look amazing, the two medium ones talk while the smallest one responds to sound and shouts at you.

Pokémon Game Boy Micro

If you saw this from a distance you might not know that it's a special Pokémon-themed Micro. A tiny Pikachu sits above the b button.

Toothbrush

An essential item in any Poké-fan's wash bag, this Pikachu toothbrush can be bought in grocery stores in Japan.

Munchlax Munching Game

Munchlax spins around, opening his mouth, and players have to flick plastic sweets in his mouth. Ingenious!

Plusle Beach Ball

It had to happen - this is perhaps the best beach ball we've ever seen. It's a Poké Ball containing Plusle's playmate Minun.

Sweet Dispenser

Snorlax may be fat but he doesn't hog the food. Push the bottom of this dispenser and he'll give you a sweet.

Rings

Looking to add style to an outfit? You won't want to wear these. A tacky set of Pokémon rings allows you to take Blastoise, Mewtwo and pals with you wherever you go.

Click to view larger image
Sticker Dispenser

Click that yellow lever and this contraption will dispense special Pokémon stickers. Your friends would love you if you covered them in Pikachu stickers. Or maybe not..

Click to view larger image
Pikachu Backpack

Sure it can only hold a few pens and a small book but this this Pikachu rucksack looks great. There's a Jigglypuff rucksack too.

Click to view larger image
Reversible Pokémon

Reversible Pokémon that turn into Pokéballs. Undo the zip, turn them inside out and they're transformed. We still feel a little bit cruel whenever we have to make Jigglypuff implode

for our own entertainment, though.

  2. Mr mario fan Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 16:41

    Hey, I used to have some of those poke-bouncyballs. they were dead bouncy too. If you could rip the ball in two, you could get the little figure inside, exept it would make a mess and i had mewtwo and bulbasaur. Ah, good times, good times...

  3. yubel Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 16:50

  4. Esper Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 16:52

    I had a Pokéball marble shooter thing. It held and shot marbles. It was amazing.

    Also had a replica of Ash's hat, but that got flushed down the toilet by a friend.

    And a bouncy ball. :D

  5. solid MKsnaker Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 17:07

    I have a talking togepi, talking psyduck a tonne of cards (I had the best collection in my whole school) a tonne of toys and my friends all had a load of pokemon junk too.

  6. The Arbiter Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 17:15

    ONM should put this in the mag under collections imo. :mrgreen:

  7. Golden Knight Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 17:22

    Nice list. As said below, you should put a colloectable section in the mag.

  8. Tamzily01 Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 17:24

    I've got that Jigglypuff room guard upstairs. Got it from a family friend.

  9. Wii_With_Mii Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 17:27

    I got a Pikachu reversable a few days ago from GAME.

  10. Ai64 Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 17:42

    Wow! There are thousands and thousands of these collectables. I got a couple (including my groudon model).

  11. acguy95 Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 17:48

    Lol, I still have two of the bouncy balls- Pikachu and Poliwhirl. I also have a pikachu and turtwig plushie from game, and loads of little pokemon figures from ages ago. Oh, and a poliwhirl plushie. It's a real shame they don't make as much pokemon merchandise any more....

  12. aceowen Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 17:57

    i must have that room guard then i shall rule the world moohahahaha!

  13. Kolo67 Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 18:03

    I think that all the toys are almost...disturbing.
    I think that The Arbiter's collection is also amazing.
    How long have you been collecting it for?
    I long time I think..

  14. Wii_Will_Rock_U Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 18:29

    i must have that room guard then i shall rule the world moohahahaha!


    I have a Pikachu one, if it counts.

  15. Googoo12444 Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 18:45

    I think I still have a couple of pokemon pencils and a charmander, team rocket's snake pokemon (forgot it's name) and another pokemon which I don't know what it is, things that roll on the ground from toys r us. :) (I'll try get a picture of them)

  16. Googoo12444 Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 18:47

    Oh yeah and some pokemon cards :)

  17. hooeylewissukz Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 18:53

    We still own that pikachu bag. We've also got some pokemon toothbrushes but we never use them.

  18. Mr Resettio Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 19:04

    a pikachu ruler & rubber
    a plush pikachu that "talks" when squeezed
    a meowth that talks when shaken or hit
    cards
    a mime jr toy with masterball

    8)

  19. GuyWhoLikesBlue2 Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 19:25

    Oh God, I remember having a Pikachu toothbrush wayback when I was about 5 or 6, and everyone cosidered the Game Boy Colour the pinacle of gaming :lol:

  20. master dingley Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 19:29

    I have a few of them bits, my bulbasaur plushie is by far the best :P

    I'm liking these new articles ONM, they are interesting and appeal to the gamer in me ;) :P

    Keep up the good work :D

  21. leomckitten Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 19:35

    I have a limited edition Game Boy Colour that came with Pokemon Crystal. It's based around Pikachu and Pichu. I'll see if I can upload a pic :)

  22. Benim Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 19:52

    I have so much Pokemon crap, it's unbelievable. I have the foldable playset from AGES ago, many reversible toys, and a Pokemon candy dispenser - not the one that is shown on this thread, but one in the shape of a Pokeblock dispenser. That was cool. But the sweets that came with it were VILE. I used to put Smarties in there instead. They almost fit. >_>

  23. YAYFORNINTENDO Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 19:55

    I used to have some reversible Digimon, although this has nothing to do with the topic, I thought I would share this information with you.

  24. mcs31 Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 20:00

    I have stickers in hebrew (language of israel) that say Name, Class, School and something else on them and have various pokemon on them. They must be quite rare but not very valubale. I have a whole cupboard covered in stickers, Some are probably pokemon (I loved the cards!)

    I think my cousins had special GBA SPs that had pokemon on, or maybe it was stickers from ONM, I dont know :)

  25. Johnzaloog Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 20:33

    I still have the pikachu backpack XD

  26. jab_91 Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 21:30

    I had the Bulbasuar, Pikachu, Squrtle and charmander plush things, but I gave them away ages ago.

  27. unclekevo Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 21:58

    I have a limited edition Game Boy Colour that came with Pokemon Crystal. It's based around Pikachu and Pichu. I'll see if I can upload a pic :)


    Yeah I have that too. I also had a Vileplume sharpener, a little sticker file, 2 of those art case set things, these comic thingsm a box of tatoos, a load of those little things you got in crisps where you pointed it in an other direction and an other pokemon picture formed, videos, used to have pokemon chewing - gum, this pikachu teddy, a few other pokemon teddies and last but not least for those who never knew thry needed one I used to have a Pikachu flower arrangement thing. It was a Pikachu thing fopr the garden

  28. hoshixcandy Wednesday 6th May 2009 at 22:29

    I had (and still do have) quite a lot of that. Can't find my Pokémon playsets though. I had one with Charmander, and one with Eevee. My neighbour stole my Charmander though.

    Those bouncy balls were brilliant. I had Mewtwo and my brother had Poliwrath... Plus, the collection of Togepis D:'' My rooms surrounded by the little guy!

    This wasn't so much nostalgic, just more like "Let's see what stuff I don't have". :3'

  29. DeadlyCreature Thursday 7th May 2009 at 00:30

    Those bouncy balls really were awesome. I had a Blastoise and a Dragonite. Good times.

    I had loads of cards, and bought many a sweet that was pokemon themed lol. I collected a few stickers from the chuppa chupps lol. The Charizard, Gengar and Ivysaur plushies were great too.

    Anyone remember that offer from Burger King where you got a hand sized pokeball and a gold plated card-thing inside, when you bought some meal? I think there was four to collect... I got Charizard and Jigglypuff. Wow.

  30. Random-Hero Thursday 7th May 2009 at 05:14

    Bouncy Balls... Well, I melted them down and now I have the little Pokémon from within them. I got the Play set somewhere...

    I think I have a rather good collection, almost more then that Image on 1st post. :3

  31. Super_Sonic96 Thursday 7th May 2009 at 05:43

  33. HNF1 Thursday 7th May 2009 at 16:34

    Register on here then put your photos on it and then copy and paste the img code.

    Anyway, I'd completely forgotten about those Pokemon super balls. Sadly though mine is now somewhere in the back garden...

  36. The Arbiter Thursday 7th May 2009 at 18:16

    I think that all the toys are almost...disturbing.
    I think that The Arbiter's collection is also amazing.
    How long have you been collecting it for?
    I long time I think..

    Since it came out.

    All I've done is picked up a few bits here and there over the years, and it's just amassed.

    :mrgreen:

  37. anniemayshaun Thursday 7th May 2009 at 19:17

    hi I am 26 years old and i doubt nobody can beat me when it comes to collecting pokémon stuff i have amongst other things

    > a pikachu cake tin

    > duvet covers pillow case and curtains

    .> a play tent

    >as well as the usual plushes plastic toys etc

  38. Dr_HOYLE Thursday 7th May 2009 at 21:37

    This made me worry about how obsessed I was (and still am). I have over half the things on that list, nearly all the games, most of the first gen sets of TCG cards, a first gen board game (actually a pretty good game), several stationary sets, a collection of figurines, lots of books and even the duvet cover and pillow case I am using right now has Pokemon on it.

    I regret nothing! Well maybe the pyjamas I used to have.

    Ah, do you mean Pokemon Master Trainer? I still have that too!!! :mrgreen:

  40. chino40k Friday 8th May 2009 at 13:07

    I have something which they don't have listed and no one else here has mentioned.

    I have a limited edition Pokeball, which when you press the button on the front it opens to reveal a 23 karat Gold-Plated Pikachu Trading Card + certificate of authentication.

    It was brought back from Las Vegas a few years ago. I've forwarded photos to the email address on the article. Whether they do anything with them is another matter.

  41. vix_chan Friday 8th May 2009 at 13:13

    heres my most prized pokemon possetions.
    http://img222.imageshack.us/img222/8827/pic0056ce4.jpg

    The DS lites are both from pokemon centers in japan (not the american released ones)
    i got 2 by error, but i'm not complaining.
    and a Groudon and Koygre GBASP. (these were uk Release)

    I did want to get the torchic SP and Pokepark DS (and also a quite sweet Mew DS)
    but seeming as i have these items allreddy, i thaught i may be over doing it a bit (i also got myself a FFCC DS Lite and a japanese Crisis Core PSP)

    I also got some other pokemon items i may be able to take a snap shot of.

  42. Sheikah-link Friday 8th May 2009 at 17:20

    I actually have most of these xD

  43. Yoshie Friday 8th May 2009 at 17:22

    I have a Pikachu one, if it counts.

    I have Pikachu AND Squirtle. ;)

  44. KingdomHeartsLuv Friday 8th May 2009 at 17:35

    i used to have the reversible pokemon, the playset, the bouncy balls and a couple of binders but unfortunately a mankey stole them or something...

  47. Vianyte Friday 8th May 2009 at 22:06

    I've got the Pika backpack. I also have a Pikachu toy that had a pocket in it that contained sweets when i got it but i didn't like the sweets. The toy was great though, it was a good pouch to put my GBA games in.

    I've got a Charizard plushie sitting on my wardrobe, that was from Thorpe Park years ago.

    And i have a Pikachu thing that shoots forward when you pull it back. Fun. :D

  48. bilboboy Friday 8th May 2009 at 22:27

    I have a pikachu/meowth battle arena rock paper scissors thingy, hundreds of pokemon plushes and i also had a pikachu t.v. which sadly broke :cry:
    I also had a poliwag, poliwhirl and poliwrath action figure as well as the playset thing and hundreds of other junk

  49. pazozo Friday 8th May 2009 at 23:47

    oh gosh, I had most of these/ knew people who did
    one of my friend had necklaces of the starter pokémon, and I collected all those battery-powered plastic ones, and got special ones from France and stuff

    I wish I hadn't sold all my pokémon stuff :(

  50. PYROCHAOS Friday 8th May 2009 at 23:48

    shlit. I got rid of a lot of that stuff.

    When i said shlit I was refering to Lt. P. Shlitzenburg... bad man.

  51. DeaPGalaxy Saturday 9th May 2009 at 12:50

    I had a Gengar one of those Pokémon plushies which you can "implode" the pokémon. But I lost it :'(
    I also had a Pokémon bouncy ball, but I lost that too! :'(

  52. Googoo12444 Monday 11th May 2009 at 20:53

    My friend had a yellow game boy colour with a picachu in the corner is that anything special?

  53. ellielou22 Friday 15th May 2009 at 13:09

  54. Waldy565 Monday 23rd Aug 2010 at 14:39
