| Pokémon Adventures volume 43
Volume 43 is the forty-third volume of the Pokémon Adventures manga. It is both the third and final volume in the HeartGold & SoulSilver chapter and the first of the Black & White chapter. It is authored by 日下秀憲 Hidenori Kusaka and illustrated by 山本サトシ Satoshi Yamamoto.
In VIZ Media's translation, this volume is published as volume one of a separately numbered series, "Pokémon Adventures: Black & White".
The VIZ Media release omits the first four rounds from the volume. This is because the company had not started releasing the HeartGold & SoulSilver chapter at the time of the release. Similar splits were done with Volume 14 and Volume 15, where the last round of the Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter were moved from the beginning of Volume 15 to the end of Volume 14, and later with Volume 22 and Volume 23, where the first two rounds of the FireRed & LeafGreen chapter were moved to Volume 23.
The first four rounds have also been omitted from the Brazilian translation, as the HeartGold & SoulSilver chapter is not yet available in Brazilian Portuguese at this time.
