Red, Green, and Blue with their starter Pokémon
The Red, Green & Blue chapter (Japanese: 第１章 赤 ・ 緑 ・ 青編 The First Chapter: Red, Green, and Blue) is the first chapter of the Pokémon Adventures manga, consisting of forty rounds and spanning three volumes. It was authored by 日下秀憲 Hidenori Kusaka and illustrated by 真斗 Mato.
The chapter features the journeys of Red and Blue through Kanto, conquering the eight Gyms and the Pokémon League. Later, a third Trainer, Green, comes into the plot. Together, they destroy Team Rocket, an evil organization that uses Pokémon for illegal actions. Red also assists Blaine in capturing Mewtwo and saves a young girl from wild Pokémon in Viridian Forest. Eventually, Red defeats Blue in the Pokémon League.
Beginning in September 1999, VIZ Media released the Red, Green & Blue chapter and the Yellow chapter as a series of monthly comic books, preceding their collected volume releases of the manga. In total, 18 monthly single issues were released of the Red, Green & Blue chapter.
In other languages
Beginning in June 2014, European French publisher Kurokawa began releasing the Red, Green & Blue chapter and the Yellow chapter together as a series of three omnibus volumes. While the Red, Green & Blue chapter and Yellow chapter had been previously released in France by publisher Glénat, these volumes feature a new translation. Kurokawa's omnibus volumes contain all the adventure route maps from the original Japanese volumes, but lack the character introduction pages from the beginning of the volumes.
