This first volume of the Pokémon Adventures manga sees the young trainer named Red who embarks on a mission to become the best trainer in the world and capture every type of pokémon.

First off I must say that this manga has little to nothing to go with the Pokémon anime and follows its own storyline that is, to be honest, far superior to the one for the anime. The series does suffer somewhat from the translation which changes the name of Professor Oak's Grandson from Green (as it was in the original Japanese) to Blue and a few other changes. Other than this the series is still quite enjoyable, even if it does take some liberties with the rules set down by the game.

I read these when I was little by borrowing my friends copy. Fast forward ten years and I decided to get my own. The storyline and characters were just as fun to read about as when I was eight-years-old. These adventures are suitable for all ages and I would recommend them to any pokemon fan!

I've just received my order of Pokemon Adventures Vol.1 and its great!

Loosely based on the video games of red, blue, yellow and so on and so forth, it is another good, but confusing variation of the Pokemon Universe. For those who enjoy playing the video games, these manga titles will offer a good read and an alternative insight into Pokemon

The Pokemon Adventures manga is a very, very loose adaptation of the first two Pokemon games Red and Blue (or Green if your Japanese).

The first three Volumes covers the Red/Blue era and unlike the Anime it follows the journey of Red, the playable character from the first game and his Pokemon partners Poliwhirl/Poliwrath (Poli) Bulbasaur (Saur) and Pika (Pikachu) on his quest to the strongest Pokemon trainer in the land. Standing in his way however is his rival Blue and the villainous organisation Team Rocket, who actually come across as a serious threat unlike the show and even the game this is base off of.

The main thing to bare in mind whilst reading this is to remember that this is not the anime, this manga follows its own story and has its own take on many of the characters from the games. Red himself is very different from Ash and while there are some similarities he is a very different entity.

Whilst not without its flaws, it is rather dated concidering how far we've come in terms of Pokemon games, and being an adaptation there are some liberties taken such as Poliwag and Nidorino hanging around Pallet Town and there being a Kangaskhan in Viridian Forest, however in the whole it is an enjoyable read and I think anyone who likes Pokemon will enjoy this.

I received this volume of Pokémon Adventures for my 16th birthday. I was rather excited for it, as I've found a fairly recent love for manga comics and I'm a fan of the Pokémon franchise. I like the cover for the book as it is very cute and colourful, and I rather enjoyed the story too, as it is completely different from both the Anime series' and the video games. However, my concern with this book, and this will most likely go for the rest of the books in this series, is that I found the illustrations at times difficult to identify, as sometimes I wasn't really sure what was actually happening in the panel. But one of my biggest disappointments more than anything in the story was the characters. I've read a few 2 other manga collections both from the same franchise, and the character development in those series is beautiful. Each and every character has a personality unique to their own and whilst reading you become very attached and involved with the story, which I think is extremely important. I did not feel this in the Pokémon Adventures manga however. After reading it I do not feel like I actually know the character at all, apart from their names and that some of them dislike each other. Other issues I had was that I felt that the journey was rushed slightly, for example, Red was in Pallet (I think!) and then suddenly he was in a different town all together in the next chapter, having no idea how he got there. This may not be too much of an issue, but like I mentioned, I adore character development, and if the story was less rushed, it may have helped out a bit.Read more ›

First of all, this manga does not follow the anime series. Ash Ketchum doesn't appear here at all.
Instead we follow Red from Pallet Town, as he sets out to become a great Pokémon trainer. He is very empathic with Pokémon and understands them well. The first two chapter is sort of reminiscent of the Pokemon chronicles episode "Journey to the Starting Line!". He sets out on the journey with a Poliwhirl from his early childhood and a Bulbasaur. On his way he also encounters Team Rocket.

This first volume follows Red's adventure as he goes to the cities of Pewter, Cerulean, Vermilion and Lavender. It's not too far from the events of the games Blue, Red, Yellow, LeafGreen and FireRed. Just like Ash was competing against Gary Oak, Red's rival is Blue, professor Oak's grandson.

I was a little afraid that i'd miss Ash in these books, but this series is just as good as the anime.

My only problem with this one is that at times it jumps ahead a little too quickly. I would've liked a lot more (but for those that just like a good adventure, this might not be an issue).
I'd love to see more details about how he encountered the different Pokémon, and I'd love to read a little special about how he came to find Poliwag, his first Pokémon.
The rest of this paragraph may contain slight SPOILERS.
I'd also like more of an explanation about what happened in Lavender Tower. How did the gas work? Who were the Pokémon? Were they the deceased Pokémon? Wild Pokémon? How did it work? That part didn't make much sense.
Also, I'd like to know if the Pokemon fan club master ever came to accept the Alakazam.
Also while he obviously beat Misty, I'd like to have seen the battle.
