    Default Pokémon Adventures Volume 9 Review Thread

    I didn't see one, so thought I'd make one.

    Today I got my copy of Volume 9 (Which many of you may remember is MATO's last volume as artist). I have to say, I haven't enjoyed a Post-RGB Volume as much as I enjoyed this one.

    I really liked how Gold and Silver worked together at The Lake of Rage, although they were still defeated. Red making a return was great, however, if he wanted to turn down the Gym Leader position, why bother with the test?

    Also, am I the only one who thought that MATO's art was better in this chapter than volume 8?

    not like it matters since this is the last volume with her as the artist anyway..

    also what are Togetaro and Utaro's names?

    Thanks (-bo will always pale in comparison to -taro though)

    I guess that means Mantaro will be Manbo..(mambo?)

    wonder if Pichu will get a nickname (even though it doesn't have one)

    what about the chapter titles?

    I assume Viz is keeping up the good work? I'll be sure to read it soon.

If you are one of the 5% of that population who believes that being able to read kana is not impressive at all, copy and paste this into your sig."

    Well, having not read the original, or Chaung Yi's translation, I can't comment. However, it was a dang good volume.

    It's not so much luck as it is obvious, lol. Red's Pokemon nicknames are very easy to translate. Chaun Yi used Vee too IIRC.

    Also, look at Eevee's Japanese name - Eievui, in comparison to the English Eevee.

    They sound the same too.

    EDIT: Eitarou, I have Volume 9 in front of me, and on Page 203, Red clearly says "Vee". It's scan the page if my scanner wasn't all the way upstairs and my laptop would die during the scanning due to a terrible battery. Could DSi-Cam it if you want though.

    EDIT:
    Image of my Volume 9
    Vee

    Okays.

    Would have made more sense if they used Vee to be honest :S

    One thing I'm confused with, is, why are there images of Gym Leaders who don't even appear in the volume on the back? Is it only Viz that does this? Blaine and Erika are on the back of this volume...but don't appear, and aren't even mentioned.

    He probably meant the CI version. I can vaguely remember them using "Vui." Eh, I dunno. What about Mask of Ice? Did they make him " Iced Mask" or something?

    On the issue of Red, I think he took the gym leader test because he did want to become the Viridian one, but then his issue with the frostbite got worse and worse, so he had to turn down the position to go find a cure.
