Localization

The VIZ Media release of this volume also includes the first four chapters from Volume 43. This is because PS460 is the final chapter of the HeartGold & SoulSilver arc and VIZ Media was already publishing the Black & White arc as a separately numbered series. A similar split was done with Volume 14 and Volume 15, where the last chapter of the Gold, Silver & Crystal arc was moved from the beginning of Volume 15 to the end of Volume 14.
