Pokemon Special Vol. 38

Maxim

Beyond repair
It's out for two days and no one bothered to start a thread. How come?!

It's the DP conclusive volume and Platinum opening volume.

Someone got it already?

Obvious first questions:
1. Tankobon-added stuff (and I'm sure that this volume is full of it, because of DP conclusion)
2. Back cover
 

Platinum fan.

I herd it was delayed to the 28th which is why nobody is making a thread about it. So it's not out yet I believe.

Delay? Oh no! Why?

But still, it's just one day left, so it's not too early to start a thread. Some bookstores could've already gotten it.
 

Platinum fan.

RetiredPokemonMaster
True. Bookstores do get there stuff early sometimes, especially when it comes to manga. There will probably be more hype on this when tomorrow gets here. I know I can't wait to see volume 38. The DP final and the start of the Platinum chapter is sure to be exciting.
 
I'm excited for this week.

Magazine chapters, Vol. 38, Pokemon Black & White.... so many things.

But I have the same questions as Maxim. I wanna know about new stuff added into this last volume. (That regigigas on the cover made me even more curious)

Ok! I have an idea

If Coronis comes on (pleeeeeeease...) then we should have a list of things we should ask him

How did Dia get Regigigas and does he keep it..if so, then what is its name?
Chapter titles
Does Sird do anything in this volume
Changes in story and art
Back cover
evolutions? (From what I remember, Zeruhiko didn't appear in the Rotom chapter...)
Does Giratina appear?
What happens in the Epilogue

If he doesn't appear..then if someone else gets it, then it'll be this
Does Dia keep Regigigas and what is its name?
Does Giratina appear?
Who is on the Back cover?
Evolutions?
Giratina and Sird

Also, another question:

Were DP and Pt Sagas bridged in any way?

Apparently someone got their volume already and posted a couple of pictures on Twitpic. One has Sird talking to the commanders and another has Dia on Regigigias taking on Dialga and Palkia with Cyrus still crying. Wish I could read what the characters are saying.

Clearly we're great!
She's talking to Mars about space pokemon, it seems.


Rrrrrgh I want to know what happens to Cyrus! He has to be in the Pt arc or it wouldn't make sense.

So does Jupiter know who "Saque" is? It seems the other two don't. Also, that's an interesting romanization. Had "Saki" ever been official?
 
Thanks for posting pictures of the scans and secondly, if Sird appears in volume 38 of the DP arc, will it confuse the readers to who Sird is? Because she makes her debut late in the RS chapters correct; nevertheless, We should encounter Sird in 2012 in the Viz Media volumes. Unless Viz somehow fills in the three extra months ( January, May, and November) of the year for the RS chapters ( or Firered and Leafgreen since Sird is the major antagonist right? ) next year, we could catch up in the meantime without confusion.

The volumes are released every few months and we'll hopefully finish Emerald before then

They'd better or it'll be confusing as all get-out. Did she come first, by the way, or did the mystery woman in the card game come first?

I think Sird is her CY name.

The scans are basically Regigigas battling Palkia and Dialga (it has them by the throats!) and Cyrus with more weeping mascara, and one of Sird talking to the commanders. Mars and Saturn seem hostile towards her.
