Pokémon Get da ze! ("Get Pokémon!") is a shōnen manga series released in 1999. In France, the first and second volumes were translated by Glénat under the title, Shu et Pikachu.

It is a a comedy-styled adventure about a Pokémon trainer named Shū (who appears very similar to Ash) and his Pikachu.

Shuu has the ability to talk to his Pokémon using a headset device called an In-Com.

The manga is a series of short, usually unrelated stories focusing on Shuu's attempt to catch as many Pokémon as possible. Arguably, it's quite possibly the only story in the franchise that emphasizes capturing Pokémon as much as the American "Gotta Catch 'em All" catchphrase did.

There are five known volumes of the manga, with the first two being about adventures in Kanto, and the last three focusing on Johto.
