    Default Pokemon Adventures Vol. 1: Diamond, Pearl and Platinum

    ...known as vol. 30 in the regular series.

    I was really surprised to see it in the mail today. It seemed WAAAAY to early for it to come out...

    Anyway, you guys want to know some stuff right?
    well.
    Here are some things you probably will want to ask.

    - Platinum's "alias" that is used by everyone up until the Canalave chapter is "Lady."
    -Dia's pokemon are named Lax (munchlax), and Tru (turtwig)
    -Pearl's pokemon are named Chatler (chatot) and Chimler (chimchar)

    also. Chapter names. (here come more puns. Thanks again Viz...)
    1. Stagestruck Starly
    2. A bevy of Bidoof
    3. Extreme Luxio (lol this name seems out of place)
    4. Putting a crimp in Kricketot
    5. A conk on Crainidos' cranium (this makes a great tongue twister. For reals)
    6. honey for Combee
    7. Belligerent Bronzor
    8. Robust Rotom
    9. Ring around the Roserade (I)

    discuss I guess.
    If you guys want a specific joke or something clarified, tell me.

    Heh, I love those chapter titles! Especially Ring around the Roserade.
    The fifth chapter's name really is a tongue twister, it's hard for me to say it five times fast.

    Hey, how did they translate Diamond and Pearl's jokes? I'm interested in knowing because I won't be getting this book (I already have Chuang Yi's translation).

    I know right? These chapter names were pretty good.

    They did a pretty good job on the jokes in my opinion.

    Cranidos' <---this is how it's spelled right? In the book? Or is Crainidos' how it's spelled? Because that would be an error...

    OK QUESTIONS!

    Tsukkomi and Boke

    What does Pearl call Dia and himself (in the Chaung Yi version he says "I'm the funny man and you're the stooge!"

    What do they call their Manzai?

    Is Sebastian's name changed?

    Ring around the Roserade (I)

    Is it just (I) or (Part I)?

    No. I spelled it wrong. *fails at pokemon names* ewe;;

    They don't really call themselves anything, but Pearl says "ok Dia, act stupid!"

    And the Manzai is called a "comedy routine"

    Sebastian is still Sebastian.

    It's I.
    just I.

    Can you give us an example of a manzai joke in the Viz version? Like the one near the beginning, where Dia and his Munchlax are dressed up as Magikarps? (In the Chuang Yi version, Pearl says, "That's not red Gyarados! It's a bred Gyarados-to-be!!").
    And what is the back cover like?

    Sorry if I'm asking too many questions.

    ah. Ok.
    But before I start, the act is called "the three Gyarados." They don't make a reference a red one though.
    And Pearl's joke was supposed to be that when Dia and Lax jump out as Magikarp, he would say "I said THREE gyarados! Not Pre-Gyarados!"

    Is there any form of censorship?

    Like Zubat wing...knife to the Windworks Managers neck?

    Is it too much to ask to post of pic of it or something? Like the back? or even when Pearl names Chimler?

    @Chamo

    That's actually funny

    Yes, could please post a scene from their comedy routine? That would be much appreciated.

    EDIT: Whoa, that was fast.

    ^ Like a scan/pic or just dialogue?

    EDIT: The zubat part wasn't censored (Unless there's something really minor I missed *shrug*)


    I'll have a pic up soon. Wait a bit while I get medicine for a tooth ache. xnx

    Phew, my fear for the Ruby and Sapphire chapter is slightly less severe....

    Oh and one last ques

    Is Tru a spelling mistake you made? (No offense)

    Because that sounds....a little odd...Tur would make more sense...but then again..it's Viz...

    Diguhiko will become Digler..
    Zeruhiko will Builer or Zeller
    and Tarohiko will be Tauler

    Also, Dia and Pearl's idols - how they're named? They're "Masters Blue Sky Pippin and Purin" in CY version.

    And family name Berlitz is Berlitz, right?

    Also, a very minor thing - the foreman of Oreburgh Mine had a Psyduck nicknamed Yeller (Yellow in games, CY changed it for an obvious reason). How was this Psyduck nicknamed in Viz version?
    After 12 years of being a Pokemon fan, I'm officially quitting the fandom. This is not a rage quit and it has nothing to do with the Pokemon franchise. It's also NOT a sudden decision - I've planned it for months but I decided to stay a true, active Pokemon fan until the very last day. The reason for my leave is the fact that I'm starting my studies at the Uni and I decided that it's a perfect moment to move on with my life. I'll never forget all these awesome years and Pokemon will always be a part of my childhood memories. Goodbye friends! Thank you.

    And if I'm ever back, I'm never back for good.

    Thank you for all the lovely pics chamo-chan as well as the excellent previews. Our B&N bookstore has not got Adventures: DPPt (Vol 30) yet, just up to Vol 11 of the GSC chaps but they said it is coming in 2 wks here. Now I'm more excited thanever (Pre-Gyarados is a cute joke, tho I liked Chaungi Yi's "Carp Diem"/Seize the Magikarp line too). I spose the Extreme Luxio title is a pun on Platinum'swealth since Luxio attack/kidnaped her? "Bevy of Bidoof" & "Ring Around the Roserade" are my fave titles, I ttly failed at saying the Cranidos one. It's tricky lol

    The chapter titles are pretty good. And the scans are great too. I'm getting this volume once I saved enough money.

    @ Dante: Yeah, those are the names. I hope that answers those questions Maxim.
    (Dante, do you have that volume as well?)
    I think they kept Psyduck's name as Yellow to be consistent with the game.

    @ SmartD: I think Viz is improving. :3

    Ooh, some good chapter titles. I'm gonna enjoy reading these chapters.
    Some good artwork on them, from what I've seen in the pictures.
    The panels look good as well.

    Yes.
    Matter of fact, I recently received a lot of manga volumes that aren't due out till next month sometime...

    My opinion, rather the stuff has been brought up before or not:
    Overall I'm happy with the release. I'm a stickler for accurate translations, but only when translations truly matter. Changing the manzai to make sense in English is more than acceptable, as the comedy portion would mostly be lost if they didn't. Major characters should never receive name changes IMO (so the Green/Blue fiasco in the originals annoys me to no end, but nothing I can do.), but changing something like Dia and Pearl's manzai idols is insignificant to me. Any potential nickname changes never bug me either, because my mind doesn't acknowledge the nickname to begin with. When reading it, my mind auto-corrected "Chatler" into "Chatot". lol

    Oh, and if there was any censorship art wise, I didn't notice, so it couldn't have been anything too important.

    I love how it still says "The seventh chapter"

    And one last thing

    After the moments in the volume where Pearl (and later Dia) collapses

    Platinum calls them the ultimate in toughness (Pearl) and Refinement (Dia)

    What does she call them here?
