    Anything about Iris since she's the champion now???
    Not yet, nope.

    Well, I don't think it's ridiculous that they defeated it just because of what species they are. I don't see any reason why a properly trained Mijumaru or Riolu couldn't defeat it.

    At the same time, I think it's rather ridiculous that Arata basically defeated Genosect with his newly-caught, inexperienced Mijumaru and Riolu.

    Well, according to the newest chapter, they evolved. I guess it's more believable now?

    The drawing style isn't my cup of tea, not very fluent or smooth. I don't like how big Futachimaru is either.

    Yeah, this manga doesn't seem like an adaption, more so an independent thing in its own right. Nothing really spectacular imo. I don't really care for speedy evolutions either.

    I'm totally going to name a Genesect 'Anakin' because of this comment.

    I agree, but the aesthetic of Dewott and Lucario fighting side-by-side is appealing to me; their body types and color palates blend well (I know it's in black and white, but in my head it isn't) and I draw the two together a lot, so it's fine by me that Arata's is 4 feet tall for some reason.

    Smogon: 'Nuff said.

    I finally caught up with this manga.

    Dr. Zeno gives Genosect to Arata at the end of the chapter. Next month, Arata is going to the Plasma-Dan's headquarters to confront Black Kyurem.

    So... Kenji's old Scyther is the Pokemon version of Darth Vader?

    The most recent chapter is also the last one.

    Basically, Arata faces off against Black Kyurem, struggles for a bit, inspires his pokemon not to give up because he's so determined not to quit, defeats Black Kyurem, and then decides to run off on a new adventure.

    It's all pretty...disappointing, really.

    Such a shame. It looked like it had potential.
