I never owned a Game Boy, but I would steal my cousin or friend's Game Boy on occasion and play whatever they had currently in the system. Sometimes that was Pokemon Red. I played it when it was fresh and new as a kid. I didn't get into the craze too much, but I enjoyed the anime and collecting Meowth, Vulpix, and Eevee toys.
When Black and White came out I fell in love with Pokemon all over again. I joined a Pokemon community online, and got deep into collecting Pokemon merchandise from Japan.
It's a shame that here in the states we don't have half the merchandise they do for Pokemon. Japan has several Pokemon Centers, stores solely dedicated to selling official Pokemon merchandise, that I would love to visit someday.
So when I have time I try my hand at making various Pokemon...
You can see more of my Pokemon amigurumi by searching my tumblr for the tag Pokemon.
I post all of my creations there now. If you want to keep up with my creations sign up for tumblr and start following me!
I do not write down any of the patterns when I make my Pokemon amigurumi. I base all of my work on my knowledge of amigurumi shapes and techniques, and make it up as I go. So I guess this is all freeform crochet! In that way all of these are one of a kind items. Even if I tried to reproduce them the outcome would be slightly different.
If you have any questions about my work ask me in the comments below, or contact me through my Etsy shop, Geeky Cute Crochet. Please do not leave your email address. I will only reply directly here or through Etsy's convo system.
