    This spring, a new Pokémon manga debuted. There have been Pokémon manga before, but nothing like this. Title Poké Reburst, this manga features humans changing into Pocket Monsters.

    It's supposed to be a more mature take on Pocket Monsters and features a main character named Ryouga, who hails from a town where people live with Pokémon. Characters can change into Pokémon, as evident by the above manga scan, which reads, "...into Zekrom." Zekrom is the mascot for Pokémon White, the most recent Pocket Monsters game.

    Pokémon fans are following the manga's development closely. But, what's more starting than this more adult spin on Pokémon is the fan that this took three years to plan and create. Isn't three years in the making a little...long?

    As one Japanese netizen stated today, "Why do Japanese people always have to brag how long things take?"[/p]

    Yeah... no. Reminds me of those seasons of Digimon where the tamers transformed into Digimon.
    Hopefully they make the best of it if they're truly going for a "more adult spin".

    So this could show the origin of Zekrom...
    But still... WTF PEOPLE BECOMING POKEMON WTF?
    The last time I saw this happen was in the episode where Ash turned into Pikachu...

    This could be cool. I wonder if it'll involve some kind of mutagen and grotesque transformation scenes like the parasite eve games. And redesigns too.

    This could be rattatta evolving into raticade: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNL8b6Sm3SE

    People transform into Pokémon? Well, I suppose this is good news in a way. Lots of people online seem to fancy the pants off Gardevoir.

    And.. Poken00bs flock to the thread, apparent by the number of people viewing it.

    Seriously? What is this?

    I'm personally glad for this. Now Pokemon will hopefully become an anime series instead of a cartoon (I'm not calling it not-anime, I'm calling it childish)...

    They're not going to turn this into an anime. I mean, the original manga (Pokemon Special) was great and mature, but they did not adapt that and instead went to their own story.

    I've read the first chapter and this is nothing special. The art is mediocre and so is the story, it's nothing more than your average shounen manga but with Pokemon in it :/

    Edit: I'm really surprised people are only hearing about this now, this has been out for a while now...


    You can read the first chapter here (legally).

    Since black & white version I think Gamefreak & Nintendo finally found out what they were doing wrong:

    Pokémon must be aimed for those once were young people which now are adults.

    pretty sure it's a spin-off, and only in manga form, there's nothing to do with the main series, at least that's what i think.
