The Best of Pokémon Adventures is the title of two compilations of the Pokémon Adventures manga released by VIZ Media in 2006. The books contain a sample of chapters from the first two story arcs. As a result of this abridging, many key events (including much of the Team Rocket storyline in the Red volume) are left out. This sometimes leads to references to events that are not included in the actual collection.

Both volumes are based on VIZ Media's first edition of Pokémon Adventures and retain the flipped, left-to-right reading format of the original publication. The success of the compilation volumes resulted in VIZ Media re-releasing the entire series from volume one beginning in June 2009.

Red volume

The Red volume is comprised of chapters from the Red, Green & Blue chapter. It features the opening five chapters, the three introductory chapters of Green, the two chapters where Red acquires Gyarados, and the Pokémon League championship tournament.

The Best of Pokémon Adventures: Red was released on October 6, 2006 (ISBN 1421509288).
