I enjoyed this mini-volume and the introduction of Team Plasma, although I don't get the point of these mimi-volumes. I think they should stick to the main volumes. Can't wait to get to this series once I'm done with Emerald, Diamond and Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold AND Soulsilver -.-

Interesting depiction of Team Plasma here. The citizens actually releasing their Pokemon had more emotion than I expected. I first played the game when I was a kid so I didn’t quite understand Plasma’s ideas, but I think this series is doing a good job of fleshing it out so far.

THE BLACK AND WHITE STORY IS SO GOOD. I’m looking forward to reading more of these volumes. Can’t wait to see how N is portrayed.

Promising start, but it’s just the same Pokémon plot now…

(Also, the mini volumes are such a pain, it’s so hard to figure out which is which at my library and online…)

Like Black and White Vol 1 in which we are introduced to the protagonist Black here we are introduced to White, the head of the BW Agency (A Talent Agency dedicated to making Pokemon stars for Television and Commercialism). Now we are familiar with White in the games as the female protagonist but here White takes a different role as head of the BW Agency with her goal focused on making her female Tepig nicknamed "Gigi" a star. Unlike Black she isn't a Pokemon Trainer and has never battled before and is a contrast to Black's hot blooded nature with her level headedness and girlish nature.

Black and White meet while White's Pokemon are used for the shooting of a commercial. The director and the crew greatly respect White for her talented Pokemon but run into a problem when their equipment is destroyed. Though most choose to blame Black (since they do not know who he is) White defends him as he has a male Tepig needed for another commercial with Gigi. Black though figures out that a Galvantula destroyed the set and captures it before having White join him on his journey- Black caused some damage to the set and owes White since she paid for everything he destroyed making her "his boss".

Later on Black and White encounter Team Plasma led by the mysterious Ghetsis. What is interesting to note here is how Ghetsis makes more of an effort to hide his true intentions rather than in the game where he almost blurts out his ture plans early on he has a calm demeanor and speaks to the crowd like a charismatic speaker making the act more believable. Black disagrees with Team Plasma when trainers begin releasing their Pokemon and later gets into a battle with N who believes Black to be wrong ending the volume.

Now as far as introducing White and her joining Black the volume was cool. The major focus is Team Plasma though and you kind of want to still be focusing on Black and White's relationship even though the direction shifts. Ghetisis introduction here was far better than in the games in my opinion as he seems more like someone decepting everyone rather than someone who'll blow his fuse at any moment.

The series continues to interest me. The slight shift in mood to a darker story was done nicely and didn't feel forced or anything. Black still has his analytic talent and we finally have met White and via her have gotten a wider glimpse into this universe. Albeit the other characters from the last volume are completely missing now and I wonder why that is.
Although I guess I know how the current conflict here will probably be resolved, at least in part, I do wonder how they will reach that solution. Especially since at first glance what Team Plasma says seems pretty reasonable, albeit their speaker's outfit is really silly, I simply cannot see it as any different.
I will see what the next volume has to offer.

This was surprisingly good. It seemed to end in mid story, but the quality of the story and the humor was enjoyable. I was surprised to find this in the Children's section of the library instead of the Young Adult Section, where the other Pokemon Graphic Novels are located. Black and White introduces a host of new Pokemon and a new set of leading characters. The villain, N, is a little more gray then the Team Rocket of old. N leads team Plasma for the liberation of Pokemon. His intentions are good, but the end result and means are disastrous. I recommend reading for something light and fluffy with a little bit of an philosophical edge for someone into the Pokemon Franchise.

If you've already played Pokemon Black/White all the way through, you already know the storyline for this manga adaptation- almost right down to the dialogue. The Pokemon illustrations and the battle depictions are well-drawn though. No Pokemon fan should miss out :)

Really good comic book for Pokemon fans. I like it when it recreated part of the game in a comic book. The weirdest part was when Black puts a Muuna on his head to know how to beat a Pokemon.

If i spelled muuna wrong please tell me in the comments below

It's such a quick read I can't be upset with the quality, but it's definitely for kids. This was much easier to follow than the first volume though, oddly enough..
