♥ Nickname everything.
♥ Any Pokémon that faints is considered dead, and
♥ The player may only catch the first Pokémon encountered in each area, and none else. If the first Pokémon encountered faints or flees, there are no second chances.
♥ Pokemon get 2 chances. The first time they faint, they're still okay. The second time, they're dead. (This is because I'm only average at playing Pokemon;;)
♥ Only allowed to heal at PokeCens. No status healers allowed.
♥ Legendaries may be caught, but have to be boxed, and can't be used. (lol so useless)
♥ No duplicates. If a duplicate is the first encounter, you get 2 more chances, after that, either
♥ If you encounter a Pokemon that you had before but died, you can catch it.
♥ If you find a shiny, rule 3 is dead and you can catch it. (does Fire Red even have shinies LOL;; /only ever played Yellow, Silver kinda, either Diamond or Platinum kinda, SS, and Black lololol)
♥ Good luck~

This guide covers:
Nendoroids (+ Vocaloid puchi nendoroids)
Figmas (I've never seen a a bootleg one irl though so this is coming from what others have)
Scaled PVCs (sob. Black Rock Shooter what have they done to youuuu)
Hetalia One Coin Figures and plush
Vocaloid Gift plush and I just found a bootleg BRS plush orz
Places to buy real things from
Bolded things are what are mostly bootlegged.
Disclaimer: This is the first time I've EVER made a guide, so I'm not saying after reading through this you'll be super good at telling fakes from official. This is just how I, myself, tell if things are real or fake. So yeah, I might be missing information.
All pictures are from myfigurecollection.com (tsukiboards), Hobby Search, GSC, this person's blog;; (lost the link!), eBay or are my own photos.
Why I think it's better to get official stuff: (just my thoughts;;)
- it's supporting the creator
- why pay $50 for a fake figure when you can get the real one for the same price?
- official stuff look nice
- fake things could contain materials harmful to your health in them ):
- they don't break as easily, or not stay in their stands
- yeah I think it's mostly because bootlegs look terrible Q_Q
( cut for lots and lots of picturesCollapse )
Pick 2-3 characters, you'll see why sometime in the future~ (I'd actually prefer if you picked 2 Q_Q")
