    How old is Isamu supposed to be? Maybe it's just art evolution but in the recent scans I've seen he looks older.

    Start with the original adventure series, they were the most enjoyable.

    A random thought (I think there's no problem with bumping the thread, since it's still a sticky).

    The more I think about it, I get the feeling that the "unknown Bug" that Red caught in Viridian Forest in the first volume was just a poorly-drawn Diglett.

    It's obvious that in the first volume of PM that Anakubo wasn't familliar with Pokemon artworks back then (and probably didn't fully understand what was going on in the games - otherwise he wouldn't have put Mewtwo in Viridian Forest) and most Pokemon look kind of deformed (like that three-eyed Persian) because they're drawn solely from Red/Green sprites.

    Looking at Diglett's RG sprite, I find it fully plausible that someone not familliar with this Pokemon's nature, and knowing it only from a tiny Game Boy graphic could easily mistake the "patch" of ground beneath it as some kind of centipede legs.

    And I don't know why everybody (including Bulbapedia with their "Bulbadenial" policy) takes as a given that this Pokemon was a Bug-type. This was never stated. It's just a fan assumption.

    By the way, someone delete those spambot posts, please.

    People, I have very sad news.

    I got this month's Corocoro hoping to read some of this manga's latest arc and it seems that this manga is not being published anymore. There is no mention of it at all.
    After investigating a bit, I realized that the last volume will be released this month (2016/10/28) and will finish this story, after 20 years since the first chapter came out.

    So sad. This manga is one of the most valuable aspects of the Pokémon Culture, but too bad it never became popular as its other counterparts.
    I will miss this manga so much...

    Sorry, I can't post the source :/

    From my understanding, this series only stops being serialized on the main Corocoro comic but will remain in the bi-monthly Corocoro Special side magazine. Its last main magazine issue mentioned something about making its return to the monthly magazine after a 'power-up', whatever that means.

    Yea, this is only people misunderstand 弱虫 (weakling) as 虫 (bug).
