Things have gotten a little weird here, and definitely far darker than I expected. Criss-crossed with webs of conspiracy, the otherwise bright world of Pokemon has been mired into something truly horrific. Born of a particularly harsh introduction, things only get darker and darker from here on out.

Contravening any expectations, the simple rabbit hole we’ve tumbled down has branched all across the roads previously trodden. Firmly binding the past with the present, we are all sucked into the maw

This manga started with the disappearance of beloved character, Red. No one truly knows what happened to him but everyone wants to find out. His Pikachu, now following a young boy named Yellow, has mysterious powers and a kind heart. Most of the same characters from the last three volumes make an appearance in this one, asking the same question, what happened to Red? We follow young Yellow as he tries to answer that question, meeting Red's friends along the way. We also see the strongest trainer ...more

Red disappears in this book and everyone wants to know where Red is. Red disappeared when Red and Bruno (one of elite four) had a battle at an unknown place. This weird boy named yellow of the Viridian forest started a rescue team with pikachu (pikachu escaped Red's and Bruno's battle) . I liked this book because I think the rescue team for Red is forming fast! ...more

The book pokemon Adventures is by Hidenori Kusaka. The book is about taking most of the pokemon on a field trip, but what happens when things get out of control. I liked the book because of all the action and humor. I recommend this book to comic book lovers because it's a comic book. ...more

In part 4 of this manga series, the story takes a dark turn as Red disappears! Focusing on a new character gives a fresh new spin on this grittier version of the Pokémon world, and Red's disappearance adds a cool mystery to solve. ...more

I think this has been my favourite Volume so far. I really enjoyed Yellow as a protagonist, she was a lot of fin in her brief appearance in Volume 3 and it's really cool to see her bumped up to the lead. I enjoy her Pokemon team as well and feel I know Rattu and Dody nearly as well as Reds old team.

I think it's also cool how established the world and it's characters are now that we're 40 or so chapters in. The Good Gym Leaders, Bill, Green and Blue all make a return and are all in keeping with t

In this book, a new character is introduced into the series, and her name is Yellow. She is the main character in the next few books, and she introduces the fact that Red, hero from the previous three books has mysteriously gone missing after a pokemon tournament. The one clue that leads Yellow on a journey to find him was his crippled pikachu that barely made it back to Red's home town. Yellow had to convince Red's professor that she was a special trainer, just like Red and his affiliates. One ...more

The fourth volume is a mixed bag for me. The middle section, especially Super Nerd, feels rushed and unfocused, throwing a thousand ideas out to see what will stick.

However, I am intrigued by Yellow's powers, the Elite Four are given a good starting place to build from, and I am immediately biased towards any character with a name like Amarillo del Bosque Verde. There continues to be a good use of strategic thinking to the battles and the general use of Pokémon.

This is where the Yellow arc really picks up steam. We get to see some more of Yellow and her battling skills, and we get some more good gym leader action. Plus, we find out where Green’s been hanging out all this time.

Starting 2 years after the last volume, Pokémon Adventures vol. 4 starts out with a promising opening before getting bogged down by a sluggish second half. This volume introduces us to Amarillo del Bosque Verde (or as Blaine calls them, Yellow), who’s on a hunt to find and rescue Red from a challenge gone south. Teaming up with Pika, the only one of Red’s Pokémon to survive the ambush, Yellow and Red begin their journey, meeting up with Red’s old friends from previous volumes while on the run fr ...more

So in the span of a month, I decided that I wanted to make a legit hobby out of reading manga. I found a few titles I liked, and now I'm following them. I completely forgot that I was already reading Pokemon Adventures!

I was stunned: the Yellow arc of Pokemon Adventures (of which this is the first entry) hold its own next to today's titles.

It helps a great deal that the Yellow arc--my favorite from when I was a tweenybopper--was when the series grew into itself. Pokemon Trainer Yellow has her-

Volume 4 starts the next arc with "Yellow". Red has accepted a challenge to battle with Bruno of the Elite Four. However, he never returns. Instead, a beaten and bruised Pika wanders back to Pallet Town followed by young Yellow. This boy has a special connection with Pokemon, able to see in their mind and heal them and is so empathetic with Pokemon he doesn't battle them, insteads finds a way to defeat them without hurting them. He joins with Pika to find Red. Familiar faces like Erica, Misty, a ...more

Honestly, I was kind of sceptical when I discovered the story would follow Yellow's adventures instead of Red's... now I can say, that it did not disappoint. Following Amarillo del Bosque Verde (Yellow), is a, not so subtle, way to mix things up; but all the feels of the first three books are untouched. This installment doesn't just give a fresh look at the Pokémon universe, but it also adds new and curious powers, and praises the original characters.

As always: excellent character development,

Red has just became the Kanto region champion but unforeseen forces have made Red completely vanished. What could have happened to Red? A strange boy named Yellow has taken Pika, Red's Pikachu and is going on a quest to find him. Will Yellow and Pika succeed? Who is the Elite Four and did they have anything to do with Red's disappearance? Only one way to find out. This is a good book for pokemon fans and Yellow fans from the video game. ...more

I am not the biggest fan of Yellow as he just seems kind of like a Gary Stu as he has unexplained powers and while that I am pretty sure will be explained later but I just don't like humans in this world having super powers. Also I don't like the idea of the Elite Four being the main villains as I do like them and it just feels weird and I would rather wish that they made them like the Gym Leaders and maybe have them a civil war type thing. ...more

The first installation in the Yellow Arc of Pokemon Adventures! The logic of Pokemon Adventures is infamously opportunistic and convoluted, but, hey, it's Pokemon. I do appreciate the more strict adherence to the attitude and aesthetic of the original Game Boy games, but the darker and more violent style may prove just a little alienating to new, younger readers who are used to a funnier, more energetic kind of Pokemon game and anime. I do like, Yellow, though; they are the best protagonist. ...more

This book was definitely better than the 3rd book. I thought Red was going to win one of the members of the elite four. But he lost and hasn't lost in a long time. he went missing after that. His "Pikachu" escaped the battle and went to a trainer name Yellow to try and save him. Yellow has powers that he can read Pokemon mind and can heal them with his hands. I hope they find Red in the 4th book. ...more

A new arc begins here, 2 years after the close of volume 3. Red goes missing, and we are introduced to a new character in Yellow, who is certainly quite a different trainer to those who have come before. Still maintains the entertainment though, as more fun and interesting adventures occur.

Okay, I LOVE Yellow! He is so adorable, his notebook is the best ever. The Elite Four is dark, men... Those crazy ass weirdo's need to get their butts kicked. I'm sure Yellow and Blue will find a way, can't wait to see the look on their faces. ...more
