    Not sure if this is the right thread (as we don't really know how long will that manga be, but chances are that it'll be just another one-volume) but I didn't want to start a new one.

    Dogasu has posted a synopsis of the newest chapter of "Pokemon BW2: New Legend".

    So we're in the point when this manga got irrelevant. After the first gym already. That's a shame, I silently hoped for this manga to show PWT.

    We really need a good non-Special, non-Anakubo adaptation of the game, which could compare to Golden Boys (except for its rushed ending) or DPA...
    I don't come here as often as I used to, do I?

    At least it's the first manga to show off Genesect, which is something. Not much of something, but something.

    It like that Genesect has some time to shine and the story is interesting but I expected more to come out of this B2W2 manga but all it is shameless promotion not unlike the anime itself but even then anime has a little more shame.

    I'm curious about the 4Koma manga.

    Do they tell a story, or are the just a bunch of unrelated gags?
    Are they still being published?
    Where were they first released in (newspapers, magazines, etc.)?

    Electric tales of Pikachu were quite humorous

    Has anyone else read the Diancie movie manga from June's Corocoro? My comprehension wasn't perfect, but I thought it was interesting. Also rather cute and humorous in places (Team Rocket). I was surprised at how many characters there were for such a short manga, too, even if it is only between a half and a third of the story. Also how many times Diancie's moved already. There were a Lot of locations for just 80 pages.

    And as I'm not sure where the line between spoiler and discussion rests I will leave it at that, but I was curious to see if there was any discussion about it or if anyone was interested in discussing it.

    Also as it was mentioned one post up, Electric Tale of Pikachu is awesome! It was my first manga. I hadn't the faintest idea what it was I was picking up at the store (I'd thought it was a book). I didn't actually know until I got it home that comics came as books. Fell in love with the story instantly but never managed to get my hands on the later volumes. I was always a fan of the world set up there with license limits on what pokemon you could train as well as a time limit off of school. It made more sense I thought, than the anime. Also Sabrina and Haunter. That was always my favorite set of episodes in the anime, and I found the storyline in Electric Tale to be far more awesome.

    Anyway now that I've posted in a ghost thread, back to lurking and waiting until I can get part 2 of Diancie.

    Pokemon movie manga discussion is usually put on the anime section. So you're not going to get much discussion about that here.

    Since, you know, it's just a manga adaptation of the upcoming moves and stuff.

    Thought I had the right place since the fist page specifically listed them. Never thought to check the anime section. I'll head over there to look, then. Thanks.

    You guys won't believe what I found from my library.

        Spoiler:- Lots of big pictures:

    It's called Pokémon HeartGold SoulSilver Bakusho 4koma Manga Zenshu by Santa Harukaze from 2010. It's the same series as the Pokémon Pocket Comics BW. Cyndaquil seems to be the most recurring character similar to Oshawott in the BW 4koma. Also, at the back of the volume there are pictures of three other previously unknown 4koma mangas named Pokémon Platinum Bakusho 4koma Manga Zenshu, Pokémon Dajare Club and Pokémon Super Dajare Club. They're all by Santa Harukaze.

    So I guess the amount of Pokémon manga we know has just risen by four! I really gotta wonder why on earth would someone donate this to a Finnish library though.

    I hope I'm posting in the right thread, because I have a kinda small question.

    I've been looking around for a book; It's a hard cover book that's pink and has Pikachu on it. I vaguely remember the story in the book revolving around Pikachu going through a city haunted by a ghost lady (I think it was city, could be wrong.) I believe there was also Charmander and Jigglypuff and they could talk in English. (Again, could be wrong about the two other pokemon with Pikachu, but I know for sure it was in English.) It was fairly thick of a book as well.

    I'm only asking this here because I can't remember if the series had more than 5 books, seeing as though the Library that had them only had 5 of them. So can someone help me out and shoot me the name of the book?

    A Magical Pokémon Journey Vol 2 or 3 Special Edition copy, I think. It isn't a one-shot, so wrong thread.

    Ehhhh doesn't really seem like what I talking about from the cover, you got a link to a site that will let me read those ones just to make sure if it is either book or not?

    The covers to those books you suggested seem a bit to cutesy for the book I was talking about. The ghost lady in the book is a character exclusive to that one book so that might be more of a help to find said book. There's not a whole lot of Pokemon books that are hard cover so I dunno if it should be this hard to find the book. :/

    I honestly don't know if I'm posting in the right thread or not because I literally can't find ANY info on the book I'm looking for online. I'd probably have a better bet finding more info on the book running down to the school that had it and just buying it off really.

    Linking to scans / scanlations is against the rules, which you would have known if you had bothered reading them when you signed up.

    Could it be the library edition of (The Electric Tale of Pikachu volume 4) Surf's Up, Pikachu?

    I've always been fascinated by obscure manga. I actually own a one-shot that was only released in Japan, Pokémon Zensho!
    It's a pretty straight forward adaptation of Red & Green, but with some pretty neat additions. Some characters like Sabrina get bigger roles and I think it's the only official Pokémon story where a counterpart to Red has a Pikachu that actually evolves.
    I didn't like the art style at first, but it has grown on me.

    A few days ago, I found a REAL rarity, while browsing through a Japanese blog.

    One of the books shown there (probably the one titled "Pokemon Gold/Silver Official Fan Book") apparently includes a long-lost one-shot manga based on GS, drawn by... Kagemaru Himeno, the famous Pokemon Card illustrator and the author of "How I Become Pokemon Card"! Here's its title page (the only scan of it available in the Internet)

    Impressive, isn't it? This version of Ethan looks pretty cool, I must say.

    I wonder how many other gems like this are still hidding from us... And some of them will probably never be discovered... I wanted to open a new thread for rarities, since this is a quite big discovery, but I think this one works just fine.

    I wonder if we'll ever see the entirety of this manga...

    Hey all, I am new here but I have a few old issues of Coro Coro and came across this Pokemon manga and think it may be a oneshot. IF so, has it been translated? if not, I will scan it.

    Oh, awesome!
    I've never seen it. It'll be great if you scanned it (I hope admins don't mind it, as it's long-lost stuff, impossible to buy anymore).

    What CoroCoro issue does it come from?

    I heard about this short manga release that happened in Corocoro oh so long go called "The Heroes Of Fire And Thunder", and it was a short manga adaption of the BW games. Unfortunately I've never had the proper chance to read it since it was all in Japanese and I can't understand it, but it seemed to be pretty cool from what Bulbapedia said. Apparently N was shown as a little more antagonistic than in the games or PokeSpe, which was an interesting idea. There was also something about Alder, but for the life of me I can't remember what it was. Shame it never got an English release...

    It's a pretty interesting one. I wouldn't say N is more antagonistic, since he even travels together with the main character for a while and has a badass cape that he gives to a cold pokemon, but he's the actual Plasma boss rather than a figurehead.

    It also has humor pretty similar to DPA, even down to a grunt with exaggerated features (in this case a very sharp face).
