 OH GOD SHE IS DROWNING IN POKEMON
 OH GOD SHE IS DROWNING IN POKEMON
Of all the many things I'd like to be famous for someday-- New York Times Bestseller, world peace, getting SOMEone to officially release Mother 3 for North America, etc. --one of the things NOT on that list is Wielder of More Pokemon Crap Than Anyone Else.

I also have absolutely no interest in swimming through a pile of Pokemon plushies a la Scrooge McDuck, but that disinterest clearly does not affect 21-year-old Brit Lisa Courtney, from Hertfordshire, England, who officially-- according to Guiness World Records! --owns the world's largest collection of Pokemon memorabilia.

I would assume that it refers specifically to individual collectors, which would leave places like the Pokemon Center in Tokyo outta luck. Still, good for Ms. Courtney-- now sell the entire collection on eBay for a ridiculous sum, offering me another chance to talk about swimming through an ocean of plushies.

Actually, the idea is kinda growing on me...

It looks like she has a lot of repeats.  In fact, she may not have even Caught Em All!  Which would be a huge disappointment.

@Addfwyn: I'm not sure they've even actually MADE toys of every single pokemon (let's face it, some of them aren't as big winners as others, especially with the added pokemon from later on), so it might actually be impossible...I dunno though!

I have a Chimchar a Turtwig and an L Plushie. I think I'm good. 
 
..Ok  maybe a Pikachu one if it was well made, or a Starman one would be nice. Gah! (Starman theme is now stuck in head)

I don't see a geekachu.  Geekachu is a pokemon, right?  Pokedex number 666 if I recall correctly.

@gia Well, there are only 151 pokemon as far as I am concerned, I am old school like that.  I imagine all the original 151 have some kinda of plush or figure by now.

151 pokemons and you can level them up with the strange glitch of Duplicating rare Candy...

Looking at the picture, someone could just buy 50,000 Pikachu plushies and get in the book just by having $5k or so.

This would make a sad opening-line at a bar. I can only imagine the scenario. 
 "Yep, the Guinness book of World records finally accepted me as the pokemaster who owns the most, wait! Don't leave, I'm not finished telling you about my- that the 5th one today."
