A one volume manga based off of ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Pokémon Red and Green]]'' released in April of 1998.

A {{Shonen}} manga. It stars "Satoshi", an average boy as he adventures through Kanto. Usually considered the most true of manga to the games, it delves into more scenes from the games then the other manga and a majority of characterization is true to the games. Some info is even taken from the [[AllThereInTheManual manuals]].

[[NoExportForYou There has been no official release of this manga outside of Japan.]] It had a {{Scanlation}} project but only the first chapter has been released in over a year.

!!This series provides examples of:

* AdaptationalWimp: While personalities are more or less left the same, the art style throws away Giovanni's evilness [[spoiler:even when he threatens to kill someone]].
* AndTheAdventureContinues: [[spoiler: The story ends with Satoshi and Shigeru heading off to fight Mewtwo.]]
* AuthorAppeal: The omake above depicts Satoshi with a Poliwhirl, yet [[CoversAlwaysLie he never actually catches one in the story.]] Poliwhirl just happens to be the favorite Pokémon of Satoshi Tajiri, creator of the ''{{Pokemon}}'' franchise.
* ArtStyleDissonance: The cute art style can make fights and threatening characters seem really awkward.
* CoolBigSis: Daisy, though not to the degree of her ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'' version. Arguably an OneeSama.
* ContinuityPorn: This manga thrives on little references to manga and as a true adaptation of the games.
* CoversAlwaysLie: An omake, seen above, has Satoshi surrounded by Pokémon. He never catches the Pidgeot, Diglet, or Poliwhirl.
* DisappearedDad: Satoshi doesn't seem to have one.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: "Zensho" roughly translates to "good book", "complete book" or "complete set". It's an one volume manga about ''{{Pokemon}}'' that holds a complete story.
* EyesAlwaysShut: Satoshi's mom rarely opens her eyes.
* GratuitousEnglish: Lt. Surge noticeably speaks with random English thrown in.
* JerkAss: Shigeru. He beats Satoshi's Pokémon out of the blue, in ''midair'', when they were already injured. He also [[LackOfEmpathy lacks empathy]] for his own Pokémon.
** TookALevelInKindness: In the last few pages, after [[spoiler:Satoshi saves him from being crushed by a falling pillar.]]
* ItWasAGift: Satoshi receives most of his Pokémon as gifts for helping gym leaders, and uses most of them.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: Satoshi [[spoiler:and Shigeru]] go to find Mewtwo at the end of the manga, however we're only told of it and we never seem them battle it. It would have made a nice tag battle.
* ParentalAbandonment: As with most of his counterparts, Shigeru lacks parents. [[spoiler:They're revealed to have been hit by a car and killed when he was little.]]
** PromotionToParent: Daisy.
* [[DarkIsNotEvil Psychics Are Not Evil]]: This manga quite possibly has the kindest version of Sabrina, to the point of borderlining {{Moe}}.
* ShipTease: When Misty saves Satoshi from drowning. Satoshi seems to like Misty. On the HoYay side, there's when [[spoiler:Satoshi and Shigeru become friends and go to fight Mewtwo]].
* ShrinkingViolet: Satoshi's Pikachu is very shy and fearful at first, but gradually opens up.
* ShownTheirWork: Personalities, roles, and designs are kept more intact then any other continuity, Pokémon have their original designs (ex: Charmander has spikes), scenes and items excluded from other continuities are kept, and little details are kept. Some of Satoshi's first lines are paraphrased from the manual of Red and Blue.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Pikachu really loves acorns. Satoshi often gives it acorns [[FoodAsBribe to persuade it to do something.]]
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Brock.
