Not your average group of TrainersPokémon RéBURST
is a manga series adapting the Pokémon
franchise, focusing on the mons
of Pokémon 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. Note that that isn't a bad thing in the slightest.
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.
