Pokémon Gotta Catch 'Em All

Pokémon Get da ze! redirects here. For the Pokémon catchphrase, which is "Pokémon Get da ze!" in Japan, see Gotta catch 'em all!.

Pokémon Gotta Catch 'Em All! (Japanese: ポケモンゲットだぜ! Get Pokémon!) is a shōnen Pokémon manga series which was released in 1999. It is a comedy-styled adventure about a Pokémon Trainer named Shu and his Pikachu. It is written by Miho Asada, who would later go on to write the Phantom Thief Pokémon 7 manga series.

Cover of Volume 1

Shu has the ability to talk to his Pikachu using a headset device called an Income.

The manga is a series of short, usually unrelated stories focusing on Shu's attempt to catch as many Pokémon as possible. Arguably, it is the only story in the franchise that emphasizes capturing Pokémon as much as the American "Gotta catch 'em all!" catchphrase did.

Overall, five volumes of this manga have been released, with the first two being about adventures in Kanto, and the last three focusing on Johto.
