Pokemon Adventures Bridges the Translation Gap & New Tomy Plush!
You could say this report is some 15 years in
the making and a fit way to celebrate 10 years
of my writing news reports for you! Fans who've
followed Viz' translation of Japanese manga
Pocket Monsters Special, or Pokémon Adventures
as it's known in the US, know that Viz had more
than a few start/stops and jumped around a LOT
translating this series. Well, volume 29 is out
this week and the hole is finally closed for the
back issues in need of translation. As you can
see by the photo, I've finally got the missing
piece for the hole on the 2nd shelf of my rack
awaiting this (the top 3 shelves have the
entirety of Pokémon Adventures issues that have
been translated by Viz thus far and the bottom 2
shelves have most of volumes 1-40 of the
Japanese versions found at a local Japanese
bookstore that has unfortunately since closed).
Sitting beside volume 29 on the floor are NEW
Tomy plush found in the TCG aisle of a local
Wal-Mart--sleepy Pikachu and Goomy! Most
retailers are doing clearance right now prior to
resetting shelves, but luckily the TCG vendor
has restocked some merch in the TCG aisles, so
check there for new items and keep an eye open
on regular retail shelves for shelf resetting
within the next month or so.
