Pocket Monsters Special is a manga series authored by Hidenori Kusaka and illustrated by Satoshi Yamamoto and by Mato before volume 10. It is published by Shogakukan under the Ladybird Comics Special series. The series is popularly known as Pokemon Special, and affectionately abbreviated as PokeSpe (Japanese: ポケスペ PokeSupe).

The series was published in the United States in English by VIZ Media, yet publication stopped midway in its run.

The RGB saga features the journeys of Red and Green through Kanto, conquering the eight Gyms and the Pokemon League. Later, a third trainer, Blue, comes into the plot. Together, they destroy Team Rocket, an evil organization which uses Pokemon for illegal actions. There are also adventures of Red helping Blaine to capture Mewtwo and saving Yellow from wild Pokemon in Viridian Forest. At the end, Red defeated Green in the Pokemon League.

Hmm, for first time readers to the manga, maybe it would be better not to spoil it, just a suggestion.

#PocketMonsters did a great job, as always!
Well, do you plan on scanlating the whole manga or just a part of it? If there's a way for me to help just tell me. (Well, I can edit manga, putting the translations, not sure about RAW Cleaning... XD)
Thanks once again!

Cool quality but you should start with Johto not Kanto. Whole RGB and Y Sagas were published by Viz. Everybody have seen them.

Besides, there is already a scanlation group for the GSC saga.

Don't mention ZOMGFTA! They forgot about Pokemon. Their Pokemon Project is discontinued!

It's not discontinued...They're just busy with their other projects. Not to mention VS Stantler is 50% complete right now.

No one can translate and edit as fast as you wish.
