(nick-)Name: Pokemaniak (JM)
Years collecting: 8 years
When did you started collecting:
JM: Well, at first I didn't want to collect consoles or anything. I've always been a Pokemon fan since the beginning , following the news about Pokemon and I didn't know the existence about GBA SP limited editions or anything else^^.
Consolevariations: That is an amazing story! So how did you found out about the limited edition consoles?
JM: I started to dig on internet but internet wasn't very popular 8 years ago, very slow and I didn't have internet at home .
How did you got the idea to collect video games/consoles:
JM: I've found many small and official pictures about GBA SP Venusaur or Charizard or GBA Latios, I've been impressed and then I've found a website called "limited edition forum" a french website.
I started to talk with amazing people like "Kaori30" , "Eggbor" etc... , and I realized that those GBA SP limited Japanese Pokemon or DS Lite weren't a dream and could be possible to get!
Consolevariations: That sounds awesome! do when you knew all this, what did you do when you knew about this?
JM: So after finished school I started to work and have bought a DS Lite Diamond and Pearl from Japan and here I am .. I now have over 100 bundled Pokémon systems and limited edition Pokemon consoles!
What is your ultimate holy grail in your collection:
JM: Well , I guess it's my Nintendo 3DS LL Pokemon Trozei Japanese white system and the Nintendo 3DS LL CoroCoro Black system, 4 and 5 made in the world!^^
Consolevariations: oh geez! That is very limited! We don`t have to ask why those is your holy grail right?
JM: This was my last opportunity in my entire life I guess ^^ , so thanks to my friends I won that auction and spent more than 2500euros on it! the black one I brought resently for less then a fourth of that price!
What is your personal favorite item in your collection:
JM: This has to the the Pokemon Cardgame Tournament consoles. The Nintendo DS Lite from 2008, the Nintendo DSi from 2009 and the Nintendo DSi LL from 2010!
consolevariations: those are indeed very awesome items! out of all these items, why are they your favorite?
JM: from the start I've been a fan of these consoles and I am really proud to own them all now,
