About the Author

Pokemon is more than a game or a TV show, it's a cultural phenomenon that has won the hearts of Japanese and American fans alike! Pokemon comics, games, animation, and toys are run-away hits worldwide. But Pokemon's appeal comes from exciting stories and dynamic personalities-the heart displayed by Ash and the loyalty of Pikachu and the other Pokemon. See for yourself what all the excitement is about.

By T. R. Alexander TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 19 Feb. 2015
Format: Paperback
The seventeenth volume of the 'Pokémon Adventures' manga sees Ruby forced to battle against Blaise of Team Magma in order to escape from the stolen Submarine Explorer 1. After the battle, Ruby continues his journey but his father is still hot on his trail. Meanwhile Sapphire continues her own quest to battle all the Gym Leaders, helping Wattson of Mauville City search for a mysterious city before travelling to Lavaridge Town where she finds Team Aqua undertaking a nefarious scheme.

This was another very entertaining instalment of 'Pokémon Adventure' that finally begins to show his true skills in battle as he faces off against Blaise and then his own father. Ruby's battle with Norman is a particular highlight of the volume with Ruby forced to think quickly in order to stand a chance against his father. Another very entertaining fight is Sapphire's battle against one of the three Team Aqua executives that does a good job of showing just how intelligent she can be. There is some good humour alongside the battles in this volume with Sapphire's time with Wattson and Ruby's run in with a Swimmer searching for the rare Feebas. The volume also reveals a little of Team Aqua's plans and sets things up for events that will shake the Hoenn region.

For bonus content, this volume includes a short introduction to the Gym Leaders of Hoenn, as well as an Illustration Gallery and the usual afterwords by the author and artist.

This seventeenth volume of 'Pokémon Adventures' was a great read and well worth a full five stars.
