Re: New Manga to serialize in Shonen Sunday: New Pokémon manga to target older audien

Figures, just as I upload an image to put in the article, someone else does, and the article gets moved from being a draft xD

The protagonist looks traditionally Shonen-y, but the cast of characters in the image used in the article looks very interesting. I can imagine abilities like Blaze and Torrent working like Naruto's Demon Fox Mode or Ichigo's hollowfication xD

With something aimed at the older fans, Nintendo were probably going to get away with a manga more than an anime, because here, people have to specifically buy Shonen Sunday, whereas with anime, anyone can stumble upon it on TV, and parents will get mad.

Still, awesome news. Will keep my eyes on this.

Looks cool I mean Pokespe n the other manga were goin' for a 6-15-y/old audience so I guess this one will be for a 13-19y/old audience. The heroe looks shonen like sharp eyes cool hair a burin' ready to take on life attitude.

Looks cool, I'm already looking forward to it. Seeing how I like Pokemon Special aimed for the children (which is badass and violent), I can't wait to see how will a manga aimed to teenagers turn out. :-D

How is that convenient?

Special is aimed at around 8-12.

I just hope this goes well, if so, it will be awesome.

I was hoping of a series that would be on par with the games, but seeing Zekrom, this looks like another loose adaption... While not taken as given, it seems so at least, which is rather disappointing, as this is the fourth take on BW (albeit one of the other three is just a 33-page story) in a series other than Special and PM. That means there are totally 6 manga based on Black and White.

Why can't any author try to expand the Pokemon World rather than adapt games? That's not to say I'm prejudging any series, but this really bugs me when it comes to Pokemon manga. The only effort that seems possible to be taking place in the games' continuity is Kagemaru Himeno's 'How I Became a Pokemon Card'; logically enough, given that it's by a TCG artist. Maybe Miho Asada's series too, although we don't have enough material for his first work, so...

Anyway, I'll be looking on this. Maybe it will have something interesting to show, since it also introduces a new character. But I doubt this will be the treatment I've been waiting for in a Pokemon manga. :p

Pocket Monsters Special has never run in CoroCoro Comics. I have no idea where the article is getting that from.

Sixth, actually. There's Pocket Monsters Special, Anakubo Kousaku's Pocket Monsters BW Version, Master!! Pokemon Black & White, Pocket Monsters BW The Hero of Thunder and Fire, and Pocket Monsters Legendary Encounters. This Shonen Sunday series will be number six.

Covient it's runnin' with two very successful manga n Japan. The Electric Tales of Pikachu was made for 9-17y/olds.

Anyway I know this based on the game but like the guy above said it looks like a loose cannon legendary legendary strong poke beatin' eachother up thing I hope it can do it's best.

Re: New Manga to serialize in Shonen Sunday: New Pokémon manga to target older audien

Article said:
Detective Conan (known as Case Closed outside of Japan)

...you might want to try "in English-language countries" for that. The series is called Detective Conan or some direct translation of that everywhere else.

Lots of different manga, lots of different magazines, lots of magazines owned by the same publisher...lots of head hurt.

Well, in Non-English speaking Everywhere else, and Bulbagarden is the English wikia - other places use PokéWiki etc etc.

Oh god, the hero is HOT. D8 I can't wait to learn more. And may this not disappoint me as Pokemon Special did. Dear god, talk about trying too hard with the drama and "maturity"...imo.

I have no idea what you're even trying to say.

As I just said, there's like 3 countries in the world that call this series "Case Closed", and a couple dozen of them that call it "Detective Conan" or something similar.
The line is as accurate as saying "Pokemon" is called "Pocket Monsters" outside the US.

Thank you for somehow both proving my point and not understanding it at the same time.

PokeBeach has posted an additional image. The art is very nice! What's left to see now is whether it will feature an original story rather than another loose adaptation. We can hope!

Re: New Manga to serialize in Shonen Sunday: New Pokémon manga to target older audien

Come on, Shonen Jump is meant for 11-14 year old, that isn't that high. All the Yugioh manga has premiered in a Jump title, so I don't see why Pokemon being in one (even if not something new, assume so as the article says so) would really make such a difference.

Once Pokemon makes the cover of a jump, let me know.
