Behind the Shifty Scenes: Admin is a giant Pokemon nerd
Some of you know that terrible bootlegs are the key to my heart, but terrible Pokemon bootlegs will get me to lay down and die for you. It’s not just bootlegs in this house of fuckery though, there are Pokemon in every single room of this house.
Found at the thrift store, I’ve never managed to get it working. If it’s anything like the bootleg Pikachu calculator I had, it just screams random songs at an insanely high volume.
My plushies were getting out of hand, so we got a hammock. Please note 1998 Chinese bootleg Pika, almost like the real thing but sorta wonky.
The hammock overfloweth, so we got an Ikea rack.
Some of my non-bootlegs came direct from friends in/visiting Japan.
The easiest way to spot me when I’m out thrifting is my Pika bag and wallet. They’re always with me.
It may seem like I’ve got some sort of Pikachu problem, but my favorite Pokemon are Jigglypuff and Combee and idk how this has happened. There’s so much more Pikachu shit than anything else. I am literally wearing Pikachu socks right now.
I spend my evenings raising and breeding shiny pokes. Now you know the depths of my nerdery. Real talk though, Pokemon has been with me since I was a teenager and all through my adult life. It’s still great and I’ve never lost interest in playing the games and collecting the merch. If you have some good Pokemon bootlegs, let me see ‘em!
