I just ordered some pokemon manga from online, and I was wondering if the american version is like the japanese version. and I'm not sure what the characters do ether...Is it like the anime? Ok, tell me if I'm wrong on this...

Red:ash
Green:gary
blue:garys sister?
Silver: the guy with red hair from GSC?
Ruby:may
Saphire:branden?

I think that's how it goes?...

Whoa! I never even ordered it and I know so much
Red is RED and Green is Green and Blue is blue, not Ash or Gary or any of that stuff. Same goes for May and Brendan except Sapphire is "May" and Ruby is "Brendan"

Nah.. There's some errors in there...

Red: Ash(you got that right..)
Green(Japanese): Gary(this is right too..)
Blue(Japanese): A brand new character.. Gary's sister is known as daisy in the manga..
Silver is the GSC rival..(Yay.. you got this right too..)
Ruby: Brendan
Sapphire: May
There's Gold and Crystal too...

Well actually the manga is in no relation to the anime. The characters are based on the game, that's why their names are just according to colors.

The anime just gives them names so that they won't be 'color coded'.

Uhh... you need to spell better O_o

Well for that no, is not like the anime (well not exactly) just there are some things that goes the same, but the manga (well the Special) is more violent than the anime...

Well, it might help if you told us what Manga it was. I'd assume it's Pocket Monsters Special (Pokemon Adventures).

The names are as follows:

Red=Red
Blue=Green
Green=Blue
Yellow Caballero=Yellow De Tokiwa Gorobu
Gold=Gold
Silver=Silver
Chris=Crys
Ruby=Ruby
Sapphire=Sapphire
Wally=Mitsuru
Emerald=Emerald

In the case of Anime, it is as follows:

Ash Ketchum=Satoshi
Gary Oak=Shigeru
Jimmy (Yoshi)=Kenta
Rival=No name (fan-names are "Nanashi", "Kamon", "Hiro", and "Silver")
Marina (Dani)=Marina
Brendan=Yuuki
May=Haruka

Rival=No name (fan-names are "Nanashi", "Kamon", "Hiro", and "Silver")
Don't forget about Gino that is said to be the english name. I also seen Gin but I think it came from Japanese bacause "Gin" in japanse mean Silver.


But everebody has to Remember it! POKESPECIAL HAS NO RELATION TO THE POKEMON ANIME!
And Special came FIRST than anime.
First Games (Pokettomonsuta- Akai/Midori) were released in 1994 (or 1995, I don't remember)
Pokemon Special Manga came in 1997
Anime came in 1998!
