Not sure when I was so into the Pokemon trend. I would catch Pokemon anime series every Saturday at 10.30 am when I was 7. Must see the never-say-die antagonist, Team Rocket flies off the sky, before I went out to play.
Played Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow total more than ten times. Each play was completed with winning Elite Four to finish off the games. Knew all names of 151 Pokemon. Used my saved pocket money to buy a Pikachu backpack from neighbourhood bookstore. On my birthday, my best friend gave me a Flareon figurine for birthday present. Eaten hundred packs of Mamee Monster noodle snacks to complete the Pokemon mini-cards collection.
Then the passion faded. Stopped watching Pokemon series. Threw away all the Pokemon mini-cards during one spring cleaning. Every year, searched and played the latest versions of Pokemon games (Pokemon Gold, Ruby, Fire Red, Crystal, Platinum, Black & White and Black & White 2). Here is my small tribute to Pokemon. My hand drawn imaginary Pokemon trainers. Edited in Photoshop.

omg yes! I used to have a little crush on Brock too lol.
I just love the cute Pokemon. Really hope to turn into a Pokemon trainer.
I love this blog post, I think we all have things in our childhood that we were absolutely obsessed with and loved to collect. I was too old to ever get in to the Pokemon craze but of course I heard all about it. I thought Pikachu was the cutest thing!
As for me, I was a huge Barbie fan growing up. I had a number of different Barbie dolls but the first one I ever got was my favorite. My parents bought me a huge house for her to live in with a 4-post canopy bed, gym set, pink car, and even a motorized scooter. My mother would make me clothes for her to wear, including kimonos! I’m not sure where all that stuff is anymore —- I think my mom sold it all in one of her garage sales!
I don’t own a barbie doll. But my friend did. So I always went to her house to play the imaginary game with barbie.
