GameStop – Best Overall

Up first in the list is GameStop, one of the best places to get not just awesome Pokemon gear of all types, but also exclusive collectibles that you won’t find anywhere else. Furthermore, to celebrate the Pokemon 25th Anniversary GameStop will be launching a host of new gear like accessories, collectibles, card game packs, and more. Pallet Town was just the beginning so many years ago, and with new games, shows, and gear coming out, it’s clear the series is going to continue being a powerhouse long into the future.

ToyWiz – Best for Cards

To pick from one of the largest collections of Pokemon Trading Card Game single cards, booster packers, boxes, decks, and more, ToyWiz is one of the best places to go. They also include rare and unique card packs, like the new Pokemon Celebrations series. There are even options to pre-order card packs that are coming soon or not yet released.

Pokemon Center – Best for Accessories

Backpacks, purses, plushies, clothing, figures, pins, you name it, Pokemon Center has the best selection of fan-favorite accessories. You can grab stylized drinkware and coffee mugs, wall art, and even garden statues. Currently, there are quite a few things sold out, or out of stock, so if there’s something specific you want, you may need to keep checking back!

Etsy – Best Custom Gear

If you want something custom-designed or personalized, Etsy is one of the best places to go, and there a bunch of Pokemon-themed items available too. Some things you’ll find include stickers, name plates, Pokemon-themed terrariums, T-shirts, and more!

Amazon – Best for Toys

Costumes. Check. Toys. Check. Pokemon cards. Check. Random collectibles and figurines. Check. It’s probably no surprise that Amazon has a great selection of Pokemon gear, but their inventory of toys is unmatched. From plushies and proper stuffed animals to a Pokemon carry case and full playset, there’s a lot to discover.

Celebrating 25 Years of the Pokemon Franchise

Yes, many of these places are excellent choices to find Pokemon gear, but it would be remiss of us not to mention GameStop’s exclusive 25th anniversary Pokemon event again. Throughout October they will be unveiling new and exclusive items, including rare collectibles and Pokemon card packs. If you’re a fan of the series it’s not something you want to miss. If you’re not a fan of Pokemon there are still plenty of collectibles at GameStop you might be interested in, and some of them have some serious attention to detail.

Rooting for a characters with a clear moral compass throughout a TV show is always a feel-good experience, and contemplating our own code of ethics while following antiheroes is equally satisfying. Still, an intricate plot can never truly advance in our favorite stories without a ruthless, clearly evil antagonist. The best TV villains are fleshed out with a backstory such that the audience can understand the villain's motivations, yet we still find them despicable to root for — and that we sometimes end up rooting for anyway. The villain will help guide the viewer through the episodes, pushing us to the edge of our seats until we simply can't wait any longer for their plans to be thwarted by the good guy or another oppositional force.

Some TV villains are murderous, while others are simply so unethical as to make our skin crawl. Villains can be abusive, both mentally and physically, and they can be compelling because they make us wonder what could possibly go so wrong as to cause someone to be so sick and twisted. TV wouldn't be the same without them, and they've helped to create the golden age of TV that took off in the early 21st century. These are the best TV villains since the year 2000 — and in some cases, even the best villains of all time.
