Pokemon Diamond & Pearl Adventure! Discussion Thread

    Blackjack Gabbiani Clearly we're great!

    Not even recent plots but stuff that happened years and years ago, yet try to talk about a different manga from the same time and it's "it's so long ago, it isn't relevant, who can remember that far back" etc.

    This particular manga forum has very little activity and I somehow doubt that other English forums discuss any Pokemon manga more frequently. The question is what the situation is like in Japan, where manga isn't niche.

    You know, your right about that I've been in other site in the Pokemon manga community and Is really nothing to write about,but dang i though the community was going to be interesting since is one of the best selling manga,it has 52 volumes and there's a lot things to talk about but instead we got an community with little activity,but on a positive note the Tumblr is at least entertaining

    I would at least think that DPA wouldn't be considered "niche" in areas where it was translated.

    When you say the tumblr, do you mean the Incorrect DPA Quotes one? That's one of my favorites.

    I just finished the manga. It did have a Dragon Ball feel to it and it was fun for first 3 or so volumes before it got ridiculously repetitive. Way too much friendship power.
    Jiggle butt guy was the best character.

    Say, I do hear about how Pokemon sells well, where reports say it sold 150 million copies. Do you know, website that takes statistic on Pokémon Special sales?

    That is completely false.

    It is actually 28 million, and 12 million of it is Japanese sales since 2017. ;)

    Can I ask where you got that information from?

    But the other websites do say how 150 million copies are sold...I guess they don’t have good evidence either

    I think that misconception started because Shogakugan Asia had the wrong number in their Pokemon Special page. I remember something like that. And that's how it ended up in many 'best-selling' manga of all time lists around the Internet. It's been corrected since then, though.

    It's from PokeSpedia and Paperback Edition Red, Green & Blue Chapter. ;)

    This is indeed a mistake, and confirmed by Yamamoto on Twitter.
