Pokémon debuts





Title page for the original five-page round
  • In the VIZ Media mini-volumes of the Black & White chapter, this round was collected in Volume 13.
  • In the original Japanese magazine version, the end five pages of this round were originally published as a part of School of Hard Knocks. Since the pages caused a continuity error by leading into Black's Gym battle with Brycen and leaving no space for The Beginning, the pages were moved when collected into Volume 48.
    • In international publications that are directly based on the magazine version, such as in Pokémon Black and White volume 13 and the translation from France, the pages were split off into a separate round. In the English translation of the magazine version, the separate round is titled "Welcome Home".
    • In the magazine version of this round, Black was only seen with his Pokémon. When this round was collected into volume 48, he is joined by Iris and Logan.
