A lady called Pikabellechu (I highly doubt this is her real name) holds the Guinness world record for having the largest Pokemon collection in the World. She is indeed the princess of Pokemon cosplay.
Why would anyone even set out on such a mission? She has it all, from a car to a figurine of everyone of the beasts. Not surprisingly, she is also a conference regular and considered very much a Pokemon expert.
"I also create my very own costumes that I wear to Pokemon Events, Kids Events, Conventions and other media related events," she says. "I just don't collect Pokemon, I pretty much live it as well."
