Kyouhei is Rakutsu (ラクツ; Corruption of Black2). Mei is Faitsu (ファイツ; Corruption of White2).
They're trying something new, at least. But the inclusion of Rakutsu and Faitsu only serves to make White more neglected and under-utilized.
White had a pretty fair share of screen time and character development, especially since Black was the main character.
She certainly had a bigger role then Sapphire.
I don't get why people are even surprised by this, obviously Kusaka was going to give them a role they are the main characters.
I really like this direction they're taking and I can't wait to see this unfold.
Plusle and Minun to defeat the villains for good.
But it never really paid off; it just resulted in her understanding Gigi and possibly N. Ironically, Faitsu already seems to feel a connection to N.I also found her character development to be a lot better and less forced.
Indeed. The XY chapter will probably start in November, so we'll only get four B2W2 rounds before we have to wait a long time for the volumes, which will inevitably feel rushed despite the long wait.Originally Posted by YamiiDenryuu
I'd ask why Rack and Fite are getting Pokedexes like new trainers when they apparently aren't, but the dexholder thing in this series never made any sense anyway, so I won't. :/
WoW , That Fast !
Kind a Disappointed that Mei doesn't look at cute as the game , The same thing happen with White !
However , Rakutsu looks cool .
As for the Chapter
I mean , With Rakutsu not only being a member of International police , But also Looker Boss !
Seriously , can it got any cooler then that ?
Kusaka Seriously knew how to make his Protagonist badass !
You knew who should learn something from him .
It also Seem that Both Rakutsu & Hugh are student of Cheren's school while Faitsu is the new student .
And Both Rakutsu & Faitsu got new Pokedex , Offcource I wonder if Hugh receive one !
Faitsu could be related to N since she has a locket with his picture .
And Rakutsu seem to be popular with girl , It something new considering only rival were popular among at the beginning of a series!
I wanna read it , Is there anyway to get this as soon as possible.
Considering Manga to be super rare in our country and Manga hosting site stop updating Pokemon Adventure .
I don't have any way to buy thing from internet ether !
Seriously , I really need to learn Japanese !
I saw the Team Plasma uniform of Faitsu, but Rakutsu's in the International Police AND Looker's boss? Kusaka's certainly outdone himself making his characters unique here.Rakutsu is apparently a part of the International Police and Looker's boss. Faitsu seems to be a member of Team Plasma.
I so want to read this series so bad, but I gotta get through Black & White chapter first.
Finally. About time Kyouhei and Mei received cross-canon counterparts.
This arc's gonna feel incredibly rushed though. Ugh.
I always found that White owning her own business while so young to be odd, but interesting. With Racktsu being in the police force AND a boss to probably several adults is stretching the "Dexholders are child prodigies" too much. XD This makes me curious how he got to such a high rank while young.
I honestly don't think they could fit every game thing in only 4 chapters (IF the XY arc will start in November), so maybe this arc will end up with tankobon-only chapters like HGSS and BW ended up with.
I honestly was baffled when I found that Nate and Rosa are separate characters since that would likely cause the whole starter-type tradition to fall apart but after some thinking I guess Kusaka saved both the naming tradition and the starter-type tradition. :3
So Black2 (that's what I'll call him since that's the translation of his Japanese name anyway and I can't remember his Japanese name :P) could serve as the rival Dexholder and he already has Dewott (heaven knows where he got that from). Idk about White2 but as long as she got a Pokedex she can live without a starter. :P Hugh...I don't think he's gonna become a main character due to him not being named after a game (OMG I'm gonna get so much hate for saying this) and because he didn't get a Dex. So he probably doesn't need a starter.
