Pokémon debuts





  • In the original Japanese magazine version, the last few pages of this chapter were originally published as a part of PS508. Since the pages caused a continuity error by leading into the events of PS508 and leaving no room for encounter with the Swords of Justice, the pages were moved when collected into Volume 49.
    • This part of the last few pages of this chapter in the European French version is named "Le choix de Watson" (Drayden's Choice). In the VIZ Media mini volume, the title is "A Week to Go".
