slash-attack asked: you picked some lovely shades of red and blue! super kyogrey and groudoney if i do say myself. speaking of the raddest water legendary ever, where did you get that larger kyogre plush? it's so cute!
Thank you! The paints are Behr’s “Luscious” (red) and “Sapphire Lace” (blue), and I took three tries to find the right red. I was picky and it was worth it!
My big TOMY Kyogre plush was bought from a Finnish member of pkmncollectors; I’d say that community or Yahoo!Japan’s auctions are your best bet for finding one yourself. I’m really hesitant to offer up eBay as a resource for plush because 95% of the Pokémon plush for sale there are fake bootlegs, but there’s a slim chance you could find a real one…it might be worth tracking the search term “TOMY Kyogre plush” to see if a legit-looking one pops up. Good luck finding one of your own! :)

cloudsdalelibrarian asked: What bout a Hoenn sequel? Set in the Orange Islands. Those Seem like a good land vs. Sea location for the return of Aqua vs. magma. Plus with the Pokeathlon and Super Training, those mechanics would be interesting gym challenges.
Honestly, there will never be a game set in the Orange Islands; the anime doesn’t bleed nearly that deeply into the games, at least not anymore (hello, Yellow version!). And while I myself don’t think a Hoenn remake is coming, I’d certainly like one…but what I’d like even more than that is a brand-new game for the 3DS set in the Hoenn region. Hoenn’s design would lend itself well to the graphic capabilities of the 3DS, and not having a straight remake would let GameFreak update the region as much as they want and incorporate lots of new elements, instead of being forced to recreate an old game point-for-point.

Anonymous asked: why do you think people think hoenn is the worst region? I think that's complete bullshit. hoenn is awesome, and I don't understand how gen 4 could ever be seen as better than gen 3.
Some people think Hoenn is the worst region, sure, but lots of people don’t, and everyone has their own opinion on what’s the best and worst; if anything, I’ve seen the zeitgeist move in a much more “pro-Hoenn” direction in the 3-4 years I’ve been involved in the Pokémon fandom online. Whining that “everyone hates Hoenn” is an outdated stereotype at this point.

I see the ‘summoning Hoenn remakes’ post blew up again…it does that once in a while, hah. Well, hello to all the new followers I’ve gotten in the past couple of days! I don’t post much, but I do intend to take some detail photos of my newly-finished collection display wall, so be on the lookout for those soon—possibly this weekend. And if you have any questions about any of the pieces (“where did you get that?”, etc.) feel free to ask! (Though if you ask me how much I paid for something, I’ll probably answer privately rather than on the blog.)

It’s come to my attention that my camera sensor’s in dire need of a cleaning (hence the autofocus problems I’ve been having lately), so I need to make a supply run to the camera store on Saturday morning. I’d rather wait and take good pictures than keep on with the dreck my camera’s been coughing out lately. So, detail shots on Saturday!

Had hoped to do this earlier in the day, but it didn’t work with everyone’s schedules, so the early part of my night will be taken up by shelf installation and picture hanging. Probably won’t be able to get the fan art up tonight, since the frames I’ve got it in aren’t really suited to hanging, but all of the official stuff should have a nice new home (hopefully before midnight, lol). Will post pics once it’s all done—biggest shelf is getting toggled bolted into the wall as I type!
