Recommends it for: Anyone who is willing to try something new and some who is interested in mythical creatures.
Have you every wondered if there are magical creatures with cool abilities? Well, there are! There are Pokemon. I have read the books and this book is AWESOME! Why it tells one heck of a story. You read about cool Pokemon and some pretty awesome battles.

The story is about a boy who gets new Pokemon and he becomes the champion. First, the boy caught Bulbasaur, then Pikachu, then Poliwhirl, and finally Snorlax. Next Ash (the boy) beat the gym leaders. Last, he beat his rival blue. He became the ch...more

Let's face it: the only reason I read this book was because my #4 direct descendant picked it out for us to read together. We'd already read POKÉMON: Best of Pokemon Adventures: Yellow, complete with sound effects (of which there are many written out for us to vocalize) and this one was much the same. Red is basically the TV version of Ash, and this is his story starting out, capturing his first monsters, etc. We had a great time reading it over the course of a couple weeks and I had fun putting...more

Reds goal is to beat the pokemon league. The pokemon league is only for the best of the best pokemon trianer. How you get to the pokemon league is by batling gym leaders. There are ei...more

Fav as a kid (well younger kid anyway).

Very funny, entertaining, and great story about a Pokemon trainer named Red, who goes off on his very own Pokemon Adventure. This book is very closely associated with the Game Boy Color game: Pokemon Yellow. He starts off his journey in Pallet Town, and meets a Rival named Blue. He also catches his very first Pokemon. Although this book is great, it's sometimes confusing because of the language and cartoons, but it all flows with each cartoon. I would definitely recommend this book to anybody, c...more

The type of pokemon Red. The pokemon in these are regular early. Later in the other pokemon books the pokemon get better. So the trainer name is Ash his favorite pokemon name is Pikachu: it's type is electric. The better pokemon come later in this adventure. Their called rare pokemon. Like one called Zapdos the electric bird and Moltres the fire bird. In the games the starters are the fire one Charmander: the fire one. bulbasaur: the grass one. Also the last one squirtle: the water type.

It is about a rash boy Red,his enemy Blue and the lying Green,they will get a starter pokemon by the famous pokemon expert Professer Oak in different ways.They will join forces with each other against Team Rocket which motive is to control all sources.They will also battle in the pokemon league plus a strange man that makes the finals.There will be new pokemons Mew,Mewtwo and a strange pokemon created by a strange machine and gym badges.The first series is a must read!

BEST BOOK I'VE EVER READ. It's about Pokemon, if you couldn't tell already. It tells a story about a kid named Red and his enemy Blue. The book brings back so much memories from the days when i played Pokemon. It ressembles a plot of one of the pokemon games but i don't remember which one. Anyways, he goes on a journey though towns and catches his first pokemon.
The stories may be disjointed because this is a "best of" compilation, but together they're very readable. I love the Pokemon games, but the anime is unbearable. It's embarrassing to me now, as an adult--though I adored it as a kid. But Pokemon Adventures follows trainer Red, not Ash. It's really fun, and Professor Oak has some very cool moments.
I wasnt doing aney thing I was bord and I saw the book and began to read ti I did not think it was going to be instring but when I began to read it I found it to be real fun I thin all ages shold read it and like that old saying Dont juge a book by it`s cover dont juge this book read it cause it realy good.

Ash was obviously based on this "Red" character. So, reading about Red was really enjoyable. I kept spotting differences in the manga story here, and the anime story I have loved for years, and that kept me interested in reading more. I couldn't put this wonderful manga down!

I think this book was a good book because it has a lot of action. I think people should read this book because its like a comic book.There is fire breathing dragons, water squirting turtles,etc. I liked this book and I think evreyone should read it.
I read this book out loud to my six year old son. It is hard to rate because I was less than thrilled, by my son ADORED it. So I have it his rating.

He loved it so much I am considering buying the other Best of Pokemon Adventures (Yellow).
As some of you might know, I'm totally obsessed with pokemon so I really loved this book. There are some really funny parts as well as suspenseful parts. I loved this book! (But then again, I technically love any pokemon book!

A fun series that came just in time to give me a taste of my childhood. I'd missed the light-hearted adventures of Red and Pikachu! ^_^
Reading a graphic book of them beats watching the cartoon at any time!

Recommends it for: PokeFanatics and Fanfiction Lovers
It's a good pokemon manga overall, although I was not drawn into it due to reasons
I will not tell (Cause of Spoilers). I loved the art design for pikachu, good job on that!
I makes videos on this.
I write fanfiction.
I draw pictures.
I hate to say it.
I'm obssesed.
When will the madness stop??
In the Chinese version of this book. The pokemon actually die! For example, there was an Arbok that got cut in half!
Aw man, hello nostalgia. I loved the art! Epic fight scenes, and I love the way they stylized the pokemon.
I like this a lot. Nice manga with epic battles and more as usual.
JEEZ i'm addicted to this stuff!
The book was really entertaining. I just thought of Red like another version of Ash.
