    NO. Why, why, WHY? must they have taken my absolute favorite series in the universe and ruined it?? This series is AMAZING. You would never be able to tell from this book. This is a very, very abridged version of the original four volumes that made up the second part of the manga Pokemon Adventures. That's right - they cut out three-fourths of the content. As a result, you end up with an incoherant piece-of-poop excuse for a storyline. It makes no sense at all this way. But even worse than the butchering of the beautiful storyline, is the loss of any possible connection to the characters. The reader does not understand what's going on, who most of the characters are, and why they're doing what they're doing. I am incredibly frustrated over the thought that an unsuspecting reader without a clue how diffferent this is fromt the full version might pick this up, be interested, end up with this garbage, judge the series on it, and then refuse further oppurtunities to read the REAL books in it. Let me assure that THAT reader would be missing out.

    The original Pokemon Adventures series - this part of it in particular - is thrilling, emotional, nostalgic, and enchanting. In a way, I think it's comparable to Naruto. If you can manage to find the full versions, it will definitely be a worthwhile read. Fortunately, I've heard that Viz is planning to rerelease the full volumes; unfortunately, it may take quite a long time. While you're waiting, you may want to consider importing the full English volumes from Singapore - it's definitely worth it.

    On the other hand, if you remember this manga from your childhood, this book is good for a nostalgia trip and looks good in Pokemon merchandise collections.

    Great read, but missing a few things

    For fans of the Pokemon series, The Best of Pokemon Adventures: Yellow is a great manga, filled with familiar faces, an interesting plot, and decent artwork. This manga is about a girl, named Yellow, who travels to Pallet Town in search of Red, the world-famous Pokemon trainer who recently disappeared. Along the way, she meets many friends and gets into quite a few battles, of which she resents because of her will to not hurt Pokemon. It is also revealed that she has the power of 'Pokemon empathy,' which allows her to read the thoughts and feelings of Pokemon, and heal them. I had a few problems with this manga, however. First is the fact that since this is essentially a one volume 'summary' of four volumes, some key plot elements were left out, such as how she acquired Mewtwo out of seemingly nowhere, what happened in the battle with Blaine, and the actual revealing that she is a girl (to explain, she disguises herself as a boy for an unknown reason, yet never reveals that she is in fact a girl)! My other concern is the amount of typos, which isn't enough to make it unreadable, but enough to show that the translators are in fact from Japan. Overall, a great read for fans of the Pokemon series.
