Review by

A new region, a new protagonist, and many new Pokémon await in this 8th volume of Pokémon Adventures. This time we follow Gold, a fiery young man with good intentions but a big head. When his backpack goes missing and one of Professor Elm's Pokémon is stolen, Gold makes chasing down the thief, Silver, his mission - taking with him another of Elm's Pokémon. But is Silver really an enemy?This new trainer often uses a very unique method for releasing his Pokémon - a pool cue. This strategy allows him to send his Pokémon into battle from exactly the right location, and it's only the first of many clever ideas. This volume seems to put more emphasis on strategy and power than on teamwork and kindness unlike Yellow's story, which suits our slightly conceited new hero. Still, he seems to care a great deal for his Pokémon, as any good trainer should. It will be interesting to see where this new chapter of Pokémon Adventures will lead us.
