Volume 52 is the 52nd volume of the Pokémon Adventures manga and the first volume in the Black 2 & White 2 arc. 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 2 & White 2".


Colress, the new leader of Team Plasma, is attacking the Unova region. His machines control Pokémon, wielding their powers for evil instead of good. Fortunately, a way to jam the signals is stored on a memory card. But who has the card…? A girl at the Pokémon Trainers’ School! Maybe that’s why our hero is such a flirt—he’s just doing his job gathering intel. But he’d better stop playing the field and find that card fast before someone beats him to it!
