** One chapter actually drew together elements from a half-dozen episodes all at once: Ash's Pikachu, a rebellious Squirtle, and a Charmander loyal to its long-lost trainer all go on a journey with Khangaskhan and Tommy the Khangaskhan Kid to find a rumored Pokémon preserve watched over by a farmgirl and a rough Bulbasaur; along the way they are joined by Team Rocket, having adventures involving Koga and Aya, a collection of persecuted Dugtrio, and the relics of a nation that extolled Meowth. All that. One chapter.
*** However, just to shake things up: the Squirtle, Charmander, and Bulbasaur all part ways with Pikachu; Charmander even ''returns to his trainer'' (who is [[AdaptationalHeroism not the same creep]] as his anime original). A later chapter shows that Ash has nonetheless managed to collect a ''[[InSpiteOfANail different]]'' set of Charizard, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur. [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg And an Oddish]].
* AdaptationDyeJob: While hard to tell with most characters and the monochrome art, this is apparent in color art. Most obviously Misty has brown hair instead of red, and Ritchie has a completely different design (with blonde hair, even).

* AdaptationalHeroism: Sabrina when compared to her anime counterpart who, instead being of the [[IceQueen cold psychic]] who was too focused on her powers with a CreepyChild LiteralSplitPersonality, is a kind, warm-hearted {{miko}} [[spoiler:that wants to avenge the deaths of her Pokémon at the hands of a Haunter]].

* SoreLoser: Misty when she complains of Ash's victory against her. Turns into HypocriticalHumor when one of her moves was to distract Pikachu with a rice ball and Ash managed to win against her by throwing Ferrow food on his hat that she was currently wearing (the challenge was to get the hat back) luring it to grab the hat for him. One of Misty's sisters even tells her it was fair and she's just miffed he turned the tactic against her.
