Regardless, I spent a good portion of my time there looking at what they had available. They had a decent selection considering it was basically a fancy glorified vending machine. You could select from four small rows of merchandise, from video games to plush all of the way to small figures. I decided to go with plush.
I was able to get almost all of the keychain plush they had available and most of the Poke'Dolls. If you ever get the chance to visit a Pokemon Center- even if it's just a kiosk, I highly recommend doing so. It was well worth the trip to the mall to visit it. Plus the mall had a small pretzel booth that had amazing cinnamon sugar pretzel bites. When all was said and done, I probably ended up paying more than it would've cost me to ship them all to me, but there's something really exciting about being able to pick up something as soon as you buy it and have it right there.
Something I should probably note- I am well aware the Mega-Charizard Pikachu is fake, I paid way too much for him at Rose City Comic Con just because I felt like I needed to buy something. Regardless he's very cute, and the fabric is still minky and similar enough to the real Pokemon Center toys to make him a good investment. Of course like most Pokemon Center plushies that are fake or real, he says Pokemon Center but as far as I can tell isn't. Maybe I'm wrong, who knows.. but as far as I've ever been concerned if something is difficult to tell whether it's real or not, it's almost always a fake.
Ash I also paid way too much for from Sweet Kitty in Kent, Washington. I hadn't seen an Ash plush before and really wanted him for my own collection though, so I couldn't pass him up. I'm pretty sure I've posted about this before but I will again- the lady who runs Sweet Kitty is super sweet. She is over priced or right up with eBay prices if not above, but she's a person that just about anyone could sit and talk to for hours. Incredibly friendly!
Anyway, here are some pictures until next time! :) It was really difficult to decide whether to post this in "Collector's Closet" or "Video Games Stuff" tab, so if you have an opinion one way or the other on where you'd like me to post things that could be considered video game related please let me know!
