I've only read Pokemon Adventures, and that's over a year ago. So, I'm gonna hop in the boat, too.

I really like the liberties that Toshihiro Ono takes with the manga's art style in relation to Pokémon designs. Nowadays, Pokémon, from adaptation to adaptation, are drawn in extremely similar ways, no matter what the illustrator's drawing style is like, but in the early years of the franchise, I guess no one really cared to standardize it.

For the introductory chapter itself, I actually prefer it to the first episode of the anime, considering it gives us more time to connect with the protagonist before it puts him through non-comedic turmoil. Plus, in my opinion, it shows off a little more flavor in its designs, from the Pokémon (again, going back to the whole "liberal adaptation" thing), to the humans, to even items such as the Pokédex.

Sounds like an interesting idea. I'll try and participate as much as I can. I've only read Pokemon Adventures and D & P Adventure, but I'm open to the other manga as well.

As for this first chapter, here are my impressions:
- I'm surprised that this is one of the few times that anything in the series really seemed to acknowledge (albeit partially) how evolution normally works (population change over time, rather than individual nigh-instantaneous metamorphosis).
- This Ash seems just as much of a lost cause as the anime one.
- Gary is still a douche-bag and I like him for it.
- http://komiksonline.com/?show=CMC&sc=petp&v=1&c=1&p=28 (AHAHAHAHA, THOSE EYES!)
- Nice breasts.

I believe that's enough for one day. Also:

I think Im going to join! Ill try to stay a regular here, as I love reading manga! :D

EDIT:
Well, took some time to read this chapter. Quite annoying when my internet decides to go out.
Spoiler:
I did like how they went into explaining evolution a bit and stated that pokemon are different. Does that mean there are regular animals in this world? Also, I did like that Ash actually caught the Fearow. Anime Ash wouldve watched it fly away. -.-

I read three chapters already... (It was fun and a little overboard!)

I'll try my best to be a regular…
Spoiler:
Pikachu likes to nibble the rope.
Ash likes Gary's sis.
Ash = anime counterpart
Misty has like brown hair instead of orange.
Gary is awesome!

I love this idea, and am definitely hopping on board. One thing I love about the manga, including The Electric Tale of Pikachu, is how dynamic the battles are. Truly a treat to read.

nah, the rest of the manga don't particularly interest me all that much, aside from reburst. and tbh, Black/White's story is the reason I'm reading adventures, and it's only the BW story arc.

I enjoyed the origional Adventures a lot actually. And ReBurst is pretty good, though I cant find a single scanlation after chapter 6. :/

Hi, I'm joining in! I love pokemon manga but I've read only the first 5 arcs of pokemon adventures (and a bit BW adventures), so I'd love to try some other pokemon manga.So, consider me already a regular! =)

Anyways, I read it, and I almost fell down of my chair laughing. I think it's far better than the anime.

Just like others, I liked the explanation of evolution, Misty's look(far better than her anime counterpart, for obvious reasons), Gary, and of course, CATERPIE COLA! Can anyone tell where I can find a can of this?=)

I agree. Anime Ash would just kick the opportunity to have such a strong pokemon so early.

I highly reccomend that you read them. They've got a great plot and tons of laugh!

Anyway, can't wait for tommorow's assigment!

Toujours, your idea was great!Keep it up!

EDIT: Ok, I got carried over and read two more chapters! And I almost died from laughing!=)=)
And Misty was...wow! in her suit fir the gym battle=D

They're probably translating the Japanese words into English... That's probably why it's taking them a long time to publish a new one. I love Pokemon Adventures too.

Looks like we've got a good fanbase going now! :) Assignment 2 is up, the second chapter of this volume.

It's set up weird because they switched two of the chapters around, but follow the link and you should be fine haha.

Impressions:

- What's up with that chapter title? "Play Misty For Me." Sounds like something I'd ask a girlfriend to...never mind.
- Pretty damn developed for 12, Misty.
- They seemed to have increased Brock's testosterone. Not that it did him any good, since
Spoiler:
he lost to Ash even quicker than in the anime.

- Jean Luc Pikachu...now voiced by Patrick Stewart.
- Personally, the author somehow made Misty's sisters even less attractive.
- http://komiksonline.com/?show=CMC&sc=petp&v=1&c=3&p=21
- Yep, this Ash is still a lost cause.
- http://komiksonline.com/?show=CMC&sc=petp&v=1&c=3&p=24 BEST. PIDGEOTTO. EVER.
- Pretty unorthodox way to win a match. Then again, the first season of the anime itself wasn't exactly orthodox either.

That's it for now, I think I'll add more later.

Also, I couldn't help but make this:

Spoiler:

Jean Luc Pikachu disagrees with your opinion.

It's most likely due to censorship. As you guys may or may not know, Electric Tale is rather.....infamous for it's portrayal of women's bodies, at least in the original Japanese version. In the English translation, it was censored. Good thing by the end, women stopped being drawn like that in the Japanese version, too.

Note: Images are slightly inappropriate...
Spoiler:








You know, I always wonder why Ono changed Misty from 10 to 12. I like to believe it was to make this chapter slightly more realistic/less creepy.

Spoiler:
It didn't work. I don't believe 12 year olds look like that, and they shouldn't wear swimsuits like that.

The thing that sticks out the most to me is the design of Gyarados. That thing is just full of win. Then there is the fact that pretty much no Pokemon obeys Ash right now, and Pokemon know how to write english. XD But this manga is keeping me interested and wanting more, so I cant wait for next week!

Ash's Fearow is just awesome. So are his other Pokemon, and his Butterfree seems to be the only one completely loyal to him at this point xD

Spoiler:

But I seriously thought Misty was gonna kick Ash's ass. He seems smarter in the manga than in the anime, although he did think of that water spout against Brock's Onix in the anime...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I haven't seen the actual "Pokemon Adventures" as an assignment yet.

You're right. The point is to expand people beyond Pokemon Adventures. :)

I dont think youre too late. You could easily read the first two chapters and be caught up pretty fast.
