    Quick Ball, Fast Ball...still wrong =D Oh well, minor mistakes.

    Personally, I liked this volume. However, towards the second half it did seem to become a "Who will Suicune attack next?". Eusine strikes me as a creepy paedo...

    True true. =D And that's true; the mistakes are all still minor and not that bad. Viz is still doing a pretty good job on Special.

    Same here! =D I really like volume 10 since it's Yamamoto's first volume and I thought GSC began to really pick up with Crystal and the Suicune subplot and all. X3 And actually, if it seemed that way to you now just wait 'til the other volumes. Suicune still randomly attacks people all the way up to like volume 12 or 13. And yeah, Eusine does have that kind of creepy pedo thing going on. xD I don't think he is though; I think it's just that weird vibe that he has. xDDDD

    Nah, Suicune picks Misty as his partner in volume 12, so until 14 all he's doing is sitting inside Misty's ball.

    Eusine also kisses Crystal on the hand in the next volume, haha.

    You have to cut them some slack, though. Pokémon, more than any other franchise I know, has an insane number of proper nouns, and the majority of them get changed in the transition from Japanese to English. I'm sure if you actually sat down and counted all the proper nouns in the volume - human names, Pokémon names, item names, town names, attack names - you'd come up with a good 100 or so terms that the translators would have had to look up, one by one.

    I think it's perfectly understandable if they miss one here and there.

    Way to spoil it for the people who haven't read it yet, I wasn't being specific for a reason. XD But ah, my bad then. I thought it was 13 for some reason. Least I knew it was around there though. But still, my original point of a couple more volumes of dealing with random Suicune battles is still correct. XD

    And haha, yeah, I remember that. Eusine's just so odd, in every canon. XD

    That's so weird; I hear in most bookstores (especially big chain ones like Barnes and Noble) it actually came out a few days early. And the release date Eitaro and I mentioned, the 7th, is the day it was to supposed to officially be out everywhere. Huh. Maybe your Borders is just behind for some reason?

    Oh, I know that. I never said I didn't understand the errors and I wasn't saying that to criticize them. I was actually using it as a way to take up for Chuang Yi's translation, since people always say Viz does more research than them and I was just saying apparently they don't do as much research as people like to say they do. :p (since they still make mistakes too, and in some cases as with the Speed Balls this volume, the exact same ones) And by saying that I was saying it was understandable that Chuang Yi missed a few, so of course by extension that means I also find it understandable that Viz did too. Of course with a series like Pokemon they're occasionally going to mess up a few unless they do a lot of research; and I was just adding in my comment that Bulbapedia would help them out. Especially since it seems at times they don't know about it with a few of their errors. (like they call Whitney's Miltank Mil Mil in both Viz's and Chuang Yi's translation. Which is fine. But had Viz researched it on Bulbapedia they would have saw Whitney actually refers to her Miltank as "Milky" in the English HGSS and they could have used that for her Miltank's nickname instead. :p Chuang Yi is just partially excluded in this example due to HGSS not being out at the time they did their G/S/C volumes.) *unless I missed Whitney’s Miltank being Milky in the GSC games….) So in no way did I mean it as a criticism or complaint. =P Just stating. So no need to worry dude. ^^

    Yeah, the only errors I've seen in the second printing are incredibly minor too. They're doing a good job (also, Speed Ball does sound better than Fast Ball...)

    Where did you find these new dates, I checked bulbapedia and didn't see any change?

    Some of them are actual dates. The others are the users predictions.

Apparently Viz doesn't do as much research as people claim, har har.
    It is a fan site though. I'm sure they'd rather check somewhere official.

    Still, those things are fact as taken from the games.

    To be honest though, as Dogasu as said, there are a lot of proper nouns in Pokémon; the odd mistake shouldn't be so much of a big deal. Sure, they could put every one into Bulbapedia to check, but that would take quite a bit of time, and Viz Media have to translate an enormous amount of manga. It would be nice if they could quickly check so they can revise them for a second printing (if one happens), but I doubt it.

    I didn't actually notice the speed ball mistake, so I'm not that bothered by it. I did feel that there was a line mix up for Crys, when Professor Oak offered her some pokemon or something. I'd look up where, but I don't have the volume with me. It was something like Crys replied to his offer, and then on the next page said "no thanks" or something strange.

    Mistakes aside, I really liked this volume. I'd forgotten how awesome Crys is, but Eusine really stole the show.
