    If those dates are correct, at least we know that they're going ahead with the FR/LG arc and hopefully the Emerald arc. If it continues this way, we'll be fully up to date by the beginning of 2015.

    I think it's a really bad move for Kusaka to be putting intervals between volumes that are more than a month. What they had going over the summer was really good. The problem that I'm forseeing is that as the magazines released only five rounds of B2W2 and considering that the B2W2 games had a lot of new content (unlike third versions and remakes which introduced a fair few but not a lot), the B2W2 chapter will probably span across quite a few volumes (five at the minimum, I think). Since, in the past, it took from a couple months to nearly a year for Kusaka to release volumes that consisted of volume-only chapters, it may actually take a few years for B2W2 to be completed via volumes. So it may be a good idea for Kusaka to complete BW via volumes ASAP since most of the rounds were already released by the magazines (one-month intervals between volumes, hopefully) and get to B2W2 as soon as he can so that the XY chapter won't start long after the games were released (or even when Generation VII already started and Generation VI is ancient history).

    Honestly, I think the manga should have an online publication instead of a third magazine. It would be easier.

    Also, Coronis said Amanda can't have Contrary because the Tsutarja with the Hidden Ability was never released. However, I don't understand why this would be a problem for Kusaka. I mean, this manga already gave us more absurd stuff that are completely invalid in the games, like a Wolverine Arbok, a Golbat with a crystal ball in the mouth, the legendary birds PokéXrosing, the Kanto Elite Four's pokémon abilities, and even Mewtwo's battle strategy itself. Can someone please clear this up for me?

    G-Santos: All of those events happened in the R/B/Y arc at the very beginning, before stuff like abilities and many of the mechanics that later games implemented so there's bound to be a lot of early-installment weirdness plus, abilities and how the Pokemon interact with them doesn't work the same as how Pokemon as animals work in the Adventures world, who's to say an Arbok can't regrow it's limbs or that a Golbat can be used in such a way.

    And plus, all that weird stuff happened in the earlier chapters, the chapters where the corresponding games didn't have much of a plot and Kusaka had to make up some of his own things in order to make the manga plot more exciting. All those deviations from the games ceased down in the later chapters when the corresponding games had actual plots.

    Yes, B2W2 started and ended in the magazines after 5 chapters and XY is running in the magazines right now with 2 chapters out. B2W2 will continue with more content in the actual volumes in about a year or so.

    Pokémon Black and White, Vol. 15 - April 1st
    Pokémon Black and White, Vol. 16 - June 3rd
    Pokémon Black and White, Vol. 17 - August 5th

    Has Viz said WHY they're taking so long to put these out? I mean, long releases are one thing but this is the same company who released multiple volumes of One Piece at a time to get caught up. And while I know that One Piece is a lot longer than Special, they could still do it. Heck, they could pick up the My First Wide concept where Japan left off and do it that way.

    Because the wait between these volumes is completely ridiculous.

    Well, One Piece IS infinitely more popular than PokeSpe.

    You got that right! The Legend of Korra is returning on October 3rd! Mark your calendars!

    Just got my copy of BW volume 2 (could've gotten volume 19 early as well but I didn't bring enough cash). These chapters have already been released, so there probably isn't much new stuff. I'd be willing to look through if you guys want to know if something has been changed from the mini volumes or w/e.

    Yes, can you post on here the names of the chapters? For both volumes? (Or in the case of BW Volume 2, just tell us if the names of the rounds were changed or not.)

    For BW Volume 2

    Adventure 5: Lights, Camera.....Action
    Adventure 6: An Odd Speech
    Adventure 7: Letting Go
    Adventure 8: Listening to Pokemon
    Adventure 9: Welcome to Striaton City!!
    Adventure 10: Their First Gym Battle
    Adventure 11: Battle at the Dreamyard

    I never got the mini volumes, so I'm not sure if they changed or not. Unfortunately, I don't know the chapter names for Volume 19 because stupid me didn't look inside (I preordered it on Amazon, so I wasn't really concerned with it). Sorry about that.

    I have Vol. 19, here's the chapter names:

    Adventure 227: I'm Always Grumpig First Thing in the Morning I

    Adventure 228: I'm Always Grumpig First Thing in the Morning II

    Adventure 229: You Can Fight Day or Night With Lunatone & Solrock

    Adventure 230: Walrein and Camerupt

    Adventure 231: Master Class with Masquerain

    Adventure 232: Always Keep Whiscash on You for Emergencies

    Adventure 233: The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon I

    Adventure 234: The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon II

    Adventure 235: The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon III

    Adventure 236: The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon IV

    Adventure 237: The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon V

    Adventure 238: The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon VI

    ... I think Viz might be running out of ideas for names.

    Fofo the Castform's on the spine.

    Also, I finally got my copy of HeartGold & SoulSilver 2 in, and I noticed a few things while reading it. This time it's Crystal's head that appears on the spine. Well, it matches Gold's head on HG/SS vol. 1's spine, anyway. More significantly, Gold's Pichu has a name now. It's "Pibu".

    Pichu has a nickname now? Thank God.

    I was hoping that someone would realize that it does have a nickname.

    Wait, Pibu? Not Pibo?

    Weird. Well, it makes sense since it was Yellow who gave it a name.
