For example, take a look at the Pokémon fan in the picture below; this is Belle Starenchak of the USA. She has the largest Pokémon collection in the entire world! Believe it or not she has 5,456 items of Pokémon memorabilia (probably more since this photo was taken). She sleeps with hundreds of Pikachu every night and has been collecting her stuff for over ten years! We thought some of the collections we get sent in to PokéChat were big, but this girl deserves to be in the Guinness World Records book!
The book is packed with interesting videogame facts, too. For example, there’s a fact about the Japanese version of Pokémon: The First Movie that you probably don’t know. The main characters are named Satoshi and Shigeru after Pokémon game creators Satoshi Tajiri and Shigeru Miyamoto – what a great tribute to the geniuses behind the Pokémon games!
Being the phenomenon that we all know, it won’t surprise you to learn that Pokémon is in the Top 50 console games. At number 26 in fact: Pokémon Red and Blue. The games were nominated because they were the first to introduce monster hunting to the West and breathed new life into Nintendo’s Game Boy. This top book is on sale now.
