All That Pikachu, Ani-Manga, Volume 1 - October 2006
A full-color Ani-Manga presentation of two complete Pikachu stories taken directly from Pokemon animation. In the main story, the ambitious Pokemon collector Jirarudan is trying to gather three Legendary Pokemon – Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres – in order to summon the fabled Pokemon called Lugia that is so powerful it chooses to seclude itself deep under the sea. If he can capture the Pokemon (sounds better than monster), Jirarudan will become the most powerful Pokemon Trainer on the planet. In Pikachu's Rescue Adventure, while the Pokemon enjoy a summer nap, Togepi wanders off and gets lost and Pikachu and Elekid must search for it. Along the way they meet a number of rare Pokemon, discover a secret garden and survive a freak lightning storm. Can they rescue their lost friend and also prevent a forest fire? MSRP: $7.99.
