==Plot==
 
The manga follows Red, a young boy competing with a rival, Green, to complete the Pokédex and become the champion of Pokémon. In this manga, Pokémon can talk. It is thought that a Clefairy is the main character, although it is just a follower of Red. Clefairy is obnoxious but lovable, whose big mouth sometimes gets it into trouble. Surprisingly enough, Clefairy comes up with clever ideas to help Red and Pikachu.
 
 
In the first few manga books, Red's team consists of [[Pikachu]] and Clefairy only. However, later on, Red gains a valuable companion in Tyrogue, as well. Pikachu himself is unable to talk.
 
 
The story also goes to the [[Johto]] region, where Red gets introduced to trainers Gold and Silver, supposedly based on the video game characters. The story then goes to Hoenn in the last volume, where Red thinks of receiving a [[Torchic]] and abandoning Clefairy. It is after this that the story continues under the name of Pokémon Ruby-Sapphire, starting the volume number from 1.<ref>"[http://www.chuangyi.com.sg/new/ecatalogtitle.php?title=Pokemon+Ruby-Sapphire Pokémon Ruby-Sapphire]."
