Detective Pikachu Pokemon Cards

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

It’s no secret that I love Pokemon cards. I have little clue how to play the trading card game, but I love collecting them and organizing them. I’m super excited for the Detective Pikachu movie and they’re coming out with Pokemon cards based on the movie!

The Detective Pikachu Pokemon cards are set to come out on March 29, 2019. Though, I believe, that’s Japan. It think they’ll be out everywhere else by April 6, 2019. (Unless things changed and my wires got crossed somewhere.)

As of right now, the set is going to have a total of 26 cards – 18 normal and 8 secret. The secret cards are, of course, still secret. However, Serebii has shown the 18 known cards. Some Pokemon are well-known such as Bulbasaur, Charmander, Jigglypuff, and of course, Detective Pikachu. There are some other Pokemon that I’m surprised to see have cards made from the movie such as Slaking and Morelull. However, I’m assuming they’ll have a decent part in the movie.

All the cards look pretty cool! I’m excited to try to collect them all especially since there’s only 26 (as of right now). My wallet may not like it so much and neither will my binders filled with Pokemon cards because… well, I’m running out of room.

I definitely need to sit down and go through my cards again.

Something else I need to do? Make a list and try to collect every single Pokemon card known to man. I doubt that will ever happen, but I can sure try.

Do you get Pokemon cards? Will you be getting this set? Let me know in the comments below! If you liked this post, please share it around.

Favorite Types Of Merch To Collect [Top Tuesday]

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

I bought more Pokemon cards the other day. And I want more. I always want more. I love collecting things, especially things I don’t really use and that has to do with video games. Thus, this Top Tuesday post.

Top Tuesday: Favorite Types Of Merch To Collect | Gaming | Video Games | DoublexJump.com

3. Figurines/Stuffed Animals

I love stuffed animals. I had a nice collection of figurines too. I have so much and no place to put them all that I haven’t gotten any in a while. However, someday, when I have money, I’m buying every single Pokemon figurine and stuffed animal there is. Also, Mario, Zelda, Sonic… anything and everything.

2. Game Guides

I’ve talked about this before, a long time ago. I love getting game guides. They’re pretty, they’re helpful, and they’re just something extra to have along with the games. The problem is, I barely have enough room on my bookshelves for my books let alone game guides.

1. Pokemon Cards

Someday I will show off my Pokemon card collection. It’s ever-growing and I try to keep it as organized as I can. I’m currently re-organizing them by region and it’s taking a while. Do I play the game? No. But I’m going to keep collecting them. I’d like to start collecting other cards such as Magic: The Gathering… and actually learn how to play that. Someday.

What’s some merch you love to get? Let me know in the comments below!

Gamestop Pokemon Haul

krismii
This past weekend, we went over to Gamestop to spend money. Being Pokemon Month, we scoured the store for all sorts of Pokemon goodies, having fun in the process and probably amusing the workers. There wasn’t that big of a selection, but we each got a little plushie, Rachel got some Pokemon cards, and I got a couple of Lego-like Construx sets.

rachmii
We had gotten an email about “Pokemon Day” for Gamestop and ThinkGeek, hence why we went. Of course, it was then that we realized the sales were mostly for online. Still, we went a bit crazy and bought stuff anyway. My Pokemon cards were “buy one, get one 50% off.” So, naturally, I got two big boxes.

krismii
Rachel was really happy, haha! With all the booster packs and the two jumbo cards, she got a little over one hundred and fifty new cards. Not that we really do anything with the cards other than admire how pretty they are… Back in elementary school, I did play a couple of games with the cards, but it’s not a game that I remember how to play nowadays.

rachmii
I don’t even know how to play the game… I just like collecting them and organizing them in my binders. Of course, now I have a lot more Kanto cards to sort out…

krismii
We’ll have a day where we just put on a bunch of Pokemon movies, try not to cry with them, and you can reorganize the cards while I build the Construx models. I got a small box of Ivysaur and a larger model of Gyarados. I wonder if we can find any sort of spray-on glue that will set the pieces permanently once they’re built?

Rachel Mii Double Jump
Yeah, how do we keep them together? Someone tell us! Also, I don’t think we’re going to have enough room to build legos and sort Pokemon cards… and I also want to help you build those. They look like a lot of fun!

krismii
We’ll just have to make a wallpaper of your Pokemon cards while we use the floor and tables for the legos. No biggie, right? Our little Jolteon and Charizard plushies can supervise, provided the dog and cat don’t think the plushies are their toys!

Rachel Mii Double Jump
Charizard is standing guard on the top of my bed shelf! (Along with a few other Pokemon plushies.) Did any of you guys take advantage of this sale? Has anyone tried out the Pokemon legos? They look like a lot of fun!

Too Many To Count [Pokemon Cards]

Happy Thursday!

I love collecting things, especially if it’s from a franchise I love. I have a ton of stuffed animals, a lot of them being Pokemon plushies.

Pokemon cards are no exception.

Pokemon Cards

As you can see, I have eight books, two tins, and two binders. All of these used to be filled, but then I bought the Pikachu binder. I started organizing them one day and put duplicate cards in one slot together. So, if you open the books up it doesn’t look like I have a lot of cards, but I do… Oh, I do.

Speaking of organizing them, when I have free time (which is rare to come by), I like to lay out all my cards and organize them. I’ve gotten through Kanto so far, that’s it. Like I said, my free time is becoming harder to come by.

Kanto Pokemon cardsI bought the Pikachu binder to start over in organizing them. All my Kanto cards are in there, in numerical order.

It took me a couple of hours, especially since I made a couple of mistakes. Then I got a new package of cards the following week and, of course, a wild Zubat appeared.

In fact, I don’t think I ended up putting that Zubat in the binder just yet. I believe he’s in one of the tins.

I love the tins, but only have two of them because those sets of cards tend to be on the more expensive side.

(I love collecting the cards, but I have to admit that I don’t have the money to burn on them… I wish I did.)

My Raiku tin is filled with more Pokemon cards that I haven’t fit into the books. (Plus two decks of Magic: The Gathering cards… I was wondering where those went!) The Latios tin is filled with Pokemon “extras,” I guess we’ll call it.

I have mini cards that look 3D, Pokemon coins that sometimes comes with the cards, tattoos that I used to wear when I was kid, and more.

Gold Pokemon cardsI also have these in there. They’re “gold” Pokemon cards.

It might be hard to tell, but the left is Charizard and the right one is Mewtwo.

My brother-in-law gave these to me. His parents were cleaning out the attic or something and found them. They were going to get rid of them, but he took them to give them to me.

I love them, I think they’re so cool.

My brother-in-law was also the one to give me the binder with Ash and company on it. That was filled with his own Pokemon card collection. Again, his parents were going to just get rid of them, but he took them for me to keep.

Needless to say, I have too many Pokemon cards to count. I don’t think I could ever have enough cards, but it is getting harder to find spaces for them.

Jumbo Pokemon CardsEspecially these cards right here.

I’m sure you’ve all seen “jumbo” Pokemon cards. I think they’re awesome and want them all (of course).

I have two, as you can see: Keldeo and Tepig’s evolution train.

Right now these cards sit in the front pocket of my blue Pikachu book. That’s the only place they fit since I can’t put them in a sleeve with all the other cards.

One day, I think it’d be cool to frame them and have a display wall of jumbo Pokemon cards.

If only I had the money to burn…

And no, before anyone asks… I have no idea how to play the Pokemon card game.

Do you still collect Pokemon cards? How many do you have? Let me know in the comments below!
