It was released in the west under Viz localization team, released in individual chapters with individual Pokémon VHS tapes, and also in full paperback volumes. Chuang Yi Comics released their own translation of this manga in Singapore, adopting Viz's censorships in later volumes.

Of course, that's not why you heard of this series. (Really, who do we think we're fooling)? Chances are, one of the first things you heard about this series was the fact that it was a HotterAndSexier adaptation of the anime, and ended up subject to far-sweeping Bowdlerization by the localization team. The original, uncensored manga is especially notorious for its {{Stripperiffic}} variety of {{Fanservice}}, and especially for its application to the main heroine of the show, Misty, who ranks in at [[{{Jailbait}} 12 Years Old]], but [[YoungerThanSheLooks who appears to be all grown-up]]. This notoriety can be laid squarely at the feet of the artist, Toshishiro Ono, who... well, [[GenreAdultery usually writes]] [[{{Hentai}} something else entirely]].

* KnightOfCerebus: The Black Fog turns the work from it's typical lighthearted comedy with sex jokes to a much more serious volume as it's a villain who drains the souls out of people having killed loads.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalNiceGuy: A lot of Jigglypuff's more jerkish characteristics are toned down or outright removed in the manga. It only attacks anyone it sees as a threat to its owner Mimi such as Team Rocket, and doesn't draw on anyone's face when its Sing ability puts them to sleep.
* AdaptedOut: Tracey Sketchit does not appear in the chapters adapting the Orange Island episodes. Ash initially travels by himself, and while Misty does return in the last two chapters, Tracey is noticeably absent.


Added DiffLines:

** Jigglypuff only appears in one chapter, as a companion to a human girl named [[CanonForeigner Mimi]]. Another Jigglypuff appears for two pages in an Orange Island chapter, but that's it.

* CripplingTheCompetition: To increase his chances of winning an upcoming Pokémon race, Dario does this to his rival Lara Laramie. He does this by spooking her Ponyta, causing it to throw her off and break her arm, leaving her out of the race -- until Ash shows up and gets involved. Later, he tries to cripple Ponyta directly by leaving some henchmen with Squirtle, Wartortle, and Blastoise in their path. He nearly succeeded, too, or, well, [[HeroicSecondWind almost]].
