Manga / Pokémon RéBURST

Not your average group of Trainers

Pokémon RéBURST is a manga series adapting the Pokémon franchise, focusing on the mons of Pokemon Black And White and published in Weekly Shonen Sunday. It's probably the biggest departure from the basic Pokémon concept in the franchise's history, utilizing the gijinka as a main focus, and further expanding it.

The main protagonist is Ryouga, a boy with superhuman strength. Joining Ryouga is Miruto, a girl who works for an organization that tracks down people who use Pokémon for evil, Yappy, a journalist who resembles a Pansage, Karuta, a Ninja, and Rug, a thief. The plot centers around "Burst", the ability to use special gems called Burst Hearts that contain Pokémon stored inside of them to transform into human-Pokémon hybrids. Ryouga's Burst is Zekrom, Karuta's is an Accelgor, and Rug has a Purrloin.

On rare occasions they actually use Pokémon in the traditional way.
