When I got this product I opened it up. I took a random volume and this was worth the $30! The books looked like they never been touched before it was unbelievable! seriously! 7 books all with high quality pictures!

I really enjoy these books, the tv series in comparison sucks entirely. I can't wait for the next set to come out.

First of all let me say that I love this manga. It's a great choice for anyone who is either looking for a children's series for their kid, or is a Pokemon fan wanting to experience a world that feels much more dramatic than the anime.

I have to say, however, that I have some issues with Viz Media's release. One complaint is that it's annoying how two characters' names are switched. For anyone who doesn't know, in the Japanese version the male rival of Red is named Green and the girl who owns a Squirtle is named Blue. In the English version their names are switched so Green is the girl and Blue is the boy. I know that this was done originally to "match" the games (where the original versions released in the US were Red and Blue) but now that it's been over a decade since the games first came out, I think it'd be better to leave them as they are.

I also don't like how Viz Media's translation includes censorship. There is a scene in one of the later volumes of this box set where Crystal's mother is introduced and she slaps her daughter. In the English version this is (badly) painted over and edited into her simply looking angry at her daughter. I understand that they want to make it more "child appropriate" and not show an abusive mother in a children's series but I disagree with it. The edited version looks bad and doesn't make any sense, not only that, it removes an important aspect of Crystal's character.
This isn't the only scene that is censored in this translation of the manga. There are others in the Ruby and Sapphire arc regarding the same issue, where Ruby is physically mistreated by his father Norman, changed into "an accident".

This is a pokemon manga set that any true pokemon fan must own. It not only gives you a full set for less than list price, but it gives you a complex story that is much better than the anime series. The story is much darker and is a great read for anyone of any age group that is a fan of pokemon.

This selection will keep your kids entertained and quietly reading for hours. The only thing to keep in mind is that it uses the Japanese direction of printing so they read it from "front" to "back".

The story is quite exciting, and certainly allow every pokemon fan to experience the nostalgia of the world of pokemon . . .

This box set gives u more value for your money than buying the volumes separately, and also comes along with a small poster.

Pokemon Adventures is one of my favorite manga. It is an incredible telling of the Pokemon story that far outdoes any of the Pokemon anime. Pokemon Adventures is fun, exciting, and mature, so that children and adults alike can enjoy.

When you read Pokémon Adventures Red & Blue, you rush through pages because there's just so much emotion and action and you can't wait for the next volume and you least expect it, it's over! In Gold & Silver, the story has a slower pace, but this isn't bad at all! Now the characters can be a lot better developed and here I must say that it's impressive how Hidenori Kusaka writes his characters well! You could notice this already in the first 7 volumes, but here it's incredible how he makes characters not so important in the games, such as Gold's mom, Joey, and many others likeable so easily. The drawings of Mato continue as beautiful as ever and Satoshi Yamamoto makes a good job replacing her. So if you style yourself a Pokémon fan, if you enjoy playing the franchise games or if you simply want to have fun with a nice story of ambitious children who do anything to accomplish their objetives, then you should probably get your hands on this box as well, especially after having read the Red & Blue edition.
