    According to that first scan, the first part of the Burst Heart Survival is called the "Suddenly the Floor is Pulled Out From Under You Survival."

    Damn, I was right on the money about a GG Warrior being there.
    Carola got a Emboar burst? Holy crap. D:

    Rabine is officially cool for having a Beheeyem Burst. Damn, I want to see all those bursts now, especially Bisharp and Cofagrigus. Shin's burst is Meinshao, actually. Meinfoo's japanese name is "Kojofoo".

    Wow, I am utterly confused as to what that part of the survival could entail.

    It's a wonderfully mysterious name; who knows what it's about? xD

    Anyways, awesome selection of Pokémon there; all my faves from Unova xD

    Notice how all the bursts are of Unova Pokemon. So I doubt we'll see any bursts of older Pokemon, at least not now. It would be cool if this series is going to show all, or most of the Unova Pokemon as bursts, since I doubt we're ever going to see normal Pokemon much.

    I'm curious what a Klang burst would be like. Maybe Gizairu will be covered mostly in metal and have the big gears on his back?

    Man, I'm still surprised they didn't stick both little girls with "cute girly Pokemon".
    "Ok, so the cute little girl named Pikke gets an Emonga burst. *yawn* How predictable." And then Carola gets an Emboar burst of all things. I still think her hair, clothing, sleepy face, and liking of eating fits more with Simisear blah blah blah bias baaaaww

    It's been pretty obvious that they were doing Pokemon introduced in gen V since day one....

    The only Pokemon not introduced in that gen that we've seen was a Pikachu and that was only a cameo.

    This chapter had a lot packed into it!

    - There are two prizes for winning the tournament. One is a cash prize of 1,000,000,000 yen, and the other is that whoever wins the tournament gains possession of every other participants' Burst Heart.
    - The emcee (called "navigator" in this comic) is named Pauline (ポリーヌ), and she's the first character in the series to actually use a Monster Ball to call out a pokemon. In this chapter, she has her Uniran use Psycokinesis to take the Burst Heart of a guy who questions what the purpose behind this tournament is. She also spends the entire chapter riding on top of her Swan'na.
    - Miruto and Yappy are taken hostage because they're not Burst Warriors. Pauline tells Ryouga that she'll return them if he happens to win the tournament.
    - We actually get to see a lot of the participants' Bursts when they're falling from the aforementioned pitfall "Survival." A lot of them are small and shown at weird angles, however.
    - The last page of the chapter shows a mysterious man in a mansion (?) looking at a monitor displaying the tournament's sixteen finalists. He laughs maniacally when he learns that Garyuu's son, Ryouga, has made it past the first round.

    Yeah, but I was talking about the people who thought otherwise. I'm glad they're doing all Unova Pokemon, but that's my bias.

    Boy, when Ryouga wins, he's going to fill up that compass so fast that it overflows! (Unless the compass is for super special bursts) Though, after the tourny, I can see him maybe giving the burst(s) back to any buddies he made during it, like Rabine. This also means that Haril and Carola might have to get new bursts by the time they reappear.

    Would the next chapter be the one that will be shown online on the official Shounen Sunday site?

    Who knows. We still have seven more updates to go.

    I'm pretty sure Ryouga will refuse the Burst Hearts.

    Besides, I just want to see if he'll ever use Rend's Burst Heart.

    You know, after winning them all, he might just give them back to their original owners. Being a nice guy and all...

    In other news, Rend and Hariru have been added to the character section on the Sunday Website.

    Makes me hopeful for Hariru joining them...

    By the way, Weekly Shounen Sunday's taking a week off for the summer holidays, so there's no new chapter this week. The next issue will go on sale August 17th.
