Official Websites

Information Resources

  • Collector Viper
    The best resource on card information, news, history, and high-quality scans. Second only to the official Japanese site.
  • All About Pokémon Figure
    My absolute favorite source for news and the latest information on merchandise releases. No longer updated, but a great resource nonetheless.
  • The PokéPlush Project
    A great resource, with its goal of being documenting each and every Pokémon plush ever made. (Within reason. I'm looking at you, Pikachu.)
  • Jim Breen's WWWJDIC
    My all-time favorite online Japanese dictionary. Not only can you look up words, in Romanji and Kana/Kanji, but you can translate sentences comprehensively, and look up Kanji using an amazing multiradical method. An amazing educational tool.

Merchandise Resources and Stores

  • Yahoo Japan Auctions
    Where I buy most of my merchandise, using a deputy service.
    Note that this site is Japanese-only, but you can always use an online translator for the auctions.
  • eBay
    Another indispensible auction site I use. However, be vigilant about spotting bootlegs.
  • Sunyshore Pokémart
    One of my all-time favorite stores, run by a good friend of mine! I've bought a good few rare collectibles from her, and her prices are always fair. Always top-notch merchandise, too, many of which you won't find anywhere else, sometimes even on Yahoo Japan.
