Electric Tale of Pikachu was the first Pokemon manga I ever read because it came out in comic form when Pokemon was still hot and big in the world. I of course got them all, but then I saw a new Pokemon book and it was Pokemon Adventures. It was also in comic form back then. It had two chapters in it. The one where Red and Green (guy) accidentally switched Pokemon and Green's Machoke evolved to Machamp and when Red teamed up with Bill to catch Eevee, who kept switching between forms, at Erika's request. I loved it since then as a kid but they stopped publishing manga comics soon. I could only read summaries online for the following years until I found copies in my bookshop in 2010. I've been hooked ever since. Honestly other then the games themselves this is the best form of Pokemon media ever. It's flawed, yes, more then some will address, but I love it.
