    I can't remember hearing the Mask of Ice being referred to by name. He does rule though - easy to cosplay too xD

    I doubt he was. He's only appeared in Ilex Forest and Lake of Rage. Heck, we've only just found out Silver's connection with him.

    The Japanese name is actually Eevee as well. "Eievui" is a really bad romanization that would only work if the pokemon's name was エイエブイ.

    Funny you should say that, I was looking at your romanisations for the Isshu Pokémon the other day (See, I told people it was Yanapp!). Problem is, so many websites use bad romanisations, it's confusing (I still remember when Pokémon Sunday explicitly said "Wargle" many places still said Waruguru).

    Thanks.

    The same images are on the back of the Japanese volumes, actually.

    Yeah, they are. Here's a pic to prove it:
    Japanese volume 9 backcover:

    Chuang Yi (English) volume 9 backcover:
    http://i849.photobucket.com/albums/ab52/1dbad/vol9bccyenglish.jpg

    Hmm. I just tried to do the [img] tags, but had to take them down because they did the opposite of what they did on another forum. Instead of making them too small, they made them too big. Is there a way to change the size it makes them, out of curiosity? If not ah well, you guys can just click on the links anyway. :p

    The only thing I don't like about Viz's new backcovers, is while they don't look bad, they shrink the backcover image down to a much smaller size compared to the original and Chuang Yi's, sadly. It is admittedly a small thing and no where near as important as the quality of the pages inbetween, but it still does bother me.

    Oh, I won't spoil it for you since you are a new reader, but I will tell you the reason why they are on the backcovers is because every Kanto and Johto Gym Leader will be on the backcovers of all the GSC volumes (volumes 8-15), because they all appear later in the story.

    As for which, I need to pick up volume 8 and 9 soon. I hear Viz is doing a really great job, even better than expected, so I can't wait to get them. As much as I love Chuang Yi's volumes as well, volume's 8 and 9 were easily their worst, so I'll be glad to read it in a practically error free way with a great translation and it's original right-to-left artwork. Anyways.

    Looking forward to 10 in December! Ah, finally, my favorite Satoshi Yamamoto's artwork! :D It'll be nice for people in the states to finally see it, and I think everyone should like it, regardless if they prefer him or Mato.

    Okay, so...I`ve only been keeping up with things through summaries. (-Shamed.-)

    Could someone tell me who Chuang Yi is?

    Basically this. Viz has 10 volumes out now, and Chuang Yi is up to volume 34. Both are good so whichever one you want to get is fine.
