    Default February 2012 "Pocket Monsters Special" Review Thread

    The last Sho4 chapter of Pokemon Adventures is out. And with it, a new Pokemon is revealed for Black.

    Here's a summary, from Coronis.



    RIP, Sho4. Hopefully a new magazine will pick Pokemon Adventures up.

    From the looks of things, we're just going to have CoroCoro Ichiban! and Pokemon Fan for the time being.

    This chapter really felt like it was written with the knowledge that it was going to be printed in the final issue of the magazine. Especially the ending, what with all the "follow your dreams" and "your dreams will never die" stuff and all.

    How is Viz when it comes to censoring blood in this series? Because Black spends the second half of this chapter with a rather nasty looking stream of blood coming from his nose.

    The only other time we've someone with that much blood shown on their body was in the Ruby & Sapphire chapter.

    Since Viz isn't translating that one, we'll have to wait and find out.

    Here's my translation all the "dream stuff" from the end of the chapter I was talking about, by the way:

    Black: "We can live as long as we have our dreams! Dreams are precious to us, whether we're a human or pokemon! I can't forgive that group that steals and tramples the dreams of others. I can't forgive them! We'll all defeat them!!"

    That kind of sentence makes me wonder if the final battle is going to start soon.

    Hey, I was wondering...would it be possible to post a pic of his Emboar? I've been wanting to see how it looks.

    -I really like this scene. I liked seeing the back story on Black, Cheren, and Bel as well as Black's Musha and War. They were both very cute in the flashbacks, and seeing Black say something along the lines of "Come with me and you'll never starve." or something of that nature to Musha was cute. Little Bel was a treat in this chapter, seeing her father overreact to that tiny scratch that War gave her was hilarious. Little Cheren was great too, seeing him being beside himself on what to do over Musha biting Black and Bel being carried off by War was funny. I liked seeing that back story on Black going to the library and studying a lot which explains why he was so good with Aloe's library and museum. I think the main reason I liked this chapter so much is explains and patches up holes in the story, it explains how Black got War and Musha since at the beginning of BW Spe I thought it was really weird Black would have a Wargle right off the bat a evolved Pokemon and Munna as well but, seeing him have his first "Black" mind was nice. And Munna ultimately teaming up with him to catch his "starter" Washibon. At the end the crap about dreams and stuff was really fitting since he does have Munna, and that scene where he hugged War as a Washibon made me smile. Since I feel Poka Chao, Musha, Protoga, Janobii, Bubu, and Denchura have all been leagues more focused on and interesting then War it was a nice hurrah to War, he''s great battling wise but, it was nice to see more expansion on his personality and past since we got that from a lot of the group Pokemon. So, a job well done in my opinion. And, yeah not so cheerful about Chao evolving into an Embour I prefer Chaobuu over Embour but whatever it's only logical it would go to it's final form with it being the main Pokemon, regardless I'm happy for it. I wonder if Musha will evolve a part of me is hoping not because I prefer Musha's design over Musharna but, since it's named Musha that wouldn't be surprising. So, yeah solid chapter indeed.

    Also RIP Grade 4
