A SliceOfLife type ''{{Manga/Pokemon}}'' manga. Each volume contained a ''Pokémon'' [[TableTopGame/{{Pokemon}} trading card]], and the chapters were drawn by Kagemaru Himeno who is an artist for the trading card game.
----
!!This manga provides examples of:

* ABoyAndHisX: An unnamed boy (who turned out to be Bill) and his Dratini in the first chapter, which centers around Pokémon first meeting humans.
* {{Bifauxnen}}: Kaede, in some panels, seems to be a rather cute young man.
* DistantFinale: The chapter about a young boy and the injured Persian he befriended skips forward several years at the end, to reveal [[spoiler:that the boy is Giovanni, leader of Team Rocket]].
* HarmlessVillain: Hiroshi is a cute kid who wishes to be a member of [[{{Yakuza}} Team Rocket]]. Team Rocket isn't nearly as intimidating as in the games, but they're still a threat. Hiroshi eventually grows up out of his HarmlessVillain role, as shown in the author's note at the end of the volume he appears in.
* MythologyGag: [[spoiler:Giovanni]] has a Persian, and Team Rocket is shown in a similar way to the Anime. The ending to [[spoiler:Giovanni's]] chapter also resembles when in ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' [[spoiler:Red comes and beats him]].
* NoExportForYou: Due to the trading cards involved, don't expect the series to come out outside of Japan ever.
* NonindicativeName: No chapter revolves around becoming Pokémon cards. Instead the title refers to the backstory of the cards.
* PapaWolf: Dragonite did not take kindly to his son being "kidnapped" by humans.
* PortmanteauSeriesNickname: ''Pokémon Card Ni Natta Wake'' becomes "Pokewake".
* UsedToBeASweetKid: [[spoiler:Giovanni is shown as a little kid, meeting his Persian]], in one chapter. He nurtures him after he finds him injured, and saves him from being captured.
* SheIsAllGrownUp: The ending page always shows the main character in the chapter a few years later, often once as a teenager and once as an adult.
* {{Transsexual}}: Akari is a female-to-male example.
