Character summary

This is Red's Pokédex information and party at the end of this volume.

Red's Pokédex

  • Gym Badges: 7
  • Pokémon seen: 132
  • Pokémon owned: 71


  • This was the last volume to be translated to German.


VIZ Media first edition

VIZ Media second edition

  • On the recap page, Blaine is listed as the Gym Leader of "Cinnabar Town" rather than Cinnabar Island.
  • On page 5, Blue's Charizard is wrongly called Charmeleon.
  • On page 23, Blue erroneously refers to Lavender Town as "Lavender City," and on page 27, Red says "Pikachu... read?!" instead of "ready".
  • The "next volume preview" page uses cover artwork for volume four that does not match the cover artwork used for the final version.
  • As the same with the previous book, at the back of the book, where it shows Red's party, it nicknames "Snor" as "Lax".

Translation edits

In the VIZ Media second edition printing, the scene in A Little Kadabra'll Do It where Green hides Poké Balls in her top is edited out. The dialog is changed to make the edited scene make sense.
