!Miscellaneous Trivia

Added DiffLines:

* In the HG/SS games, Lyra replaced Crystal. In the manga, [[https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:Crystal_HGSS_Adventures_2.png Crystal wears]] [[https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:HeartGold_SoulSilver_Lyra.png Lyra's]] outfit during the HG/SS arc and Lyra is nowhere to be seen (and probably won't appear). Meaning, Crys fans got their revenge.


* OneOfUs:
** The author notes often have Kusaka ''completely fanboying'' over whatever new game (main or spinoff) came out.
** Yamamoto is a fan of ComicBook/SpiderMan and WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants. He also stated that he drew inspiration from his favorite {{Kaiju}} movies when drawing Groudon and Kyogre.



* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants: By necessity. Kusaka gets plot, characters and Pokemon from whatever game comes out (with the exception of perhaps Pokemon Yellow), which he then plays, [[OneOfUs fanboys over]], then uses whatever he needs to cook up the story. Goes full circle when later games suddenly have similar plot points to his.

Added DiffLines:

* CreatorBreakdown: A literal example; the reason Mato was replaced by Satoshi Yamamoto as the artist was because Mato fell under an illness that left her unable to draw, and Hidenori Kusaka was told he either had to find a new artist, or the series would be cancelled entirely. Mato has since gotten well again, but Yamamoto remains the series artist to this day.


Added DiffLines:

** While the story itself would have most likely remained the same, had Mato not fallen under the illness, the art for the later volumes of the Gold & Silver arc and beyond would have looked different. On the flip side, had Kusaka not found Satoshi Yamamoto or chosen not to find a new artist when she did, the series would have been LeftHanging at vol. 9's cliffhanger.


** Yamamoto is a fan of {{Spiderman}} and WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants. He also stated that he drew inspiration from his favorite {{Kaiju}} movies when drawing Groudon and Kyogre.

** Viz didn't start releasing the Gen III chapters until Gens IV and V had already started. There's also the fact that for a few years they've published multiple arcs concurrently in order to catch up to the Japanese releases, so following that release schedule means you're skipping around quite a bit. This eventually had a MarthDebutedInSmashBros effect, as the big shocking reveal of [[spoiler:Sird]] in ''Diamond/Pearl/Platinum'' fell flat since Viz hadn't released the ''[=FireRed/LeafGreen=]'' or ''Emerald'' chapters, so English readers had never seen her before. Carr also showed up in a ''[=HeartGold/SoulSilver=]'' scene before his original appearance in ''FRLG''.

Added DiffLines:

* ScheduleSlip: Because of the R/S arc's EndingFatigue, the manga had a schedule slip for a long time, with Gen IV starting while the Gen III arcs had yet to conclude, Gen V starting while the Gen IV arcs had yet to conclude, and Gen VI starting while the Gen V arcs had yet to conclude. [[ArcFatigue The scheduling for BW2 aside]], Kusaka finally fixed this problem in Gen VI, as both arcs from that generation concluded just in time for Gen VII to start.


* DevelopmentHell: The [=B2W2=] arc fell victim to this when its magazine run ended early to make room for XY and thus was forced to go straight to the volume-only format. It says a lot about how delayed it is when both XY and ORAS (the Gen VI arcs, which came ''after'' [=B2W2=]) have finished their runs and [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Gen VII has already started]], while the 2nd volume of the [=B2W2=] arc is still nowhere in sight.
