Obtained over a span of thirteen years, Lisa's collection features 12,113 separate items.

I've even named the room where my main collection resides 'Pokémon Centre Europe!' To be in the new Gamer's Edition and to hold a world record for something you feel so passionate about is just an indescribable feeling."
This world record is officially recognized by Guinness World Records and awards Lisa Courtney a spot in the Guinness World Records 2010 Gamer's Edition.
