This is my Lucario Pokedoll! He was purchased through the Pokemon Collector’s Livejournal. I actually got someone to pick him up for me at the Nintendo World Store back in 2009.

Story time! I first came across Lucario pokedolls during an event in 2006- the Pokemon 10th year anniversary mall tour! During that time they were building up anticipation for the release of “Lucario and the Mystery of Mew” as well as Diamond and Pearl. Lucario was all over the place as a result. I wanted to give in to the hype, but figured it’d be wise to save my money, lest I decide later that I didn’t really love the Pokemon. The event passed and I skipped out on buying the Pokedoll (and a few other things.) Big mistake! For a while the doll was available on the Pokemon Center/Nintendo World online store, but later it was pulled… right as I decided to buy it! It took a while to track one down on the Pokemon Collector’s group, but once I finally did I bought it… only for it to get chewed up and lost in the mail. It’s like it was never meant to be… Until a store pickup post came up! By then the Pokedolls were back in stock and it was easier to get the little guys. That’s how I got this one!

He is from the original American run of the Pokedolls from the mid-to-late 2000’s. Because of that he is made from a soft polyester instead of the softer minky fabric used in the Japanese version. His tag is also original and in the old style (present-day Pokedoll tags look different.)

So yeah, that’s Lucario!

UP IN THE SHOP!!!

This is the final fleece run for a “chibi” Typhlosion pokemon plush made by me. This was a test of the pattern but came out almost perfect, and now this super cute guy is looking for a new home!

Typhlosion stands at 12" tall from his feet to the top of his head (ears not included). The inner yellow flame was satin-stitched on to the outer orange flame of his fire cuff. His face was machine-embroidered, though the stretchiness of the fleece resulted in some gaps between colors. The cream fabric is light enough to register as light highlights, however. The plush is filled with polyfill and is very soft and cuddly!!

Will eat anything, even if the food happens to be a little moldy. It never gets an upset stomach.

Technically this guy. I think… Need to find him though.  I’m much more of a figure collector.
