The first installment of a three part manga adaptation by Miho Asada of the upcoming Pokémon movie was released in the June 2005 issue of the Shogakukan 3rd-grader magazine last Saturday. It has replaced the Pokémon Special (Battle Frontier Edition) serialisation that had been running in the magazine in the past three months. A summary follows:
: Centuries ago, when Poké Balls did not yet exist...
As the two sides advance towards each other, suddenly, a light is emitted from the World-Origin Tree as Mew awakens. The Queen described it, "The World-Origin Tree is weeping?"
Then, Aaron's Pidgeot arrives with the staff in its beak. The Queen ponders where Aaron is, as the lightenergy fromof the treeTree reachedis its climaxreleased.
: Queen Rene (as in Irene, not René) realised that Aaron, who also had the wave-guiding ability, had used the energy of the World-Origin Tree where Mew lived, calming down the hatred and anger, and the Pokémon returned to their respective homes.
: Then, peace returned to this land again.
The perspective switches to the present, Masato reading from a book, "Following that, Aaron was called the Wave-guiding Hero."
Satoshi wins the role of the Wave-guiding Hero at the festival to commerate Aaron in a Pokémon battle tournament. One of his opponents was Kiddo, who used a Manyula.
That night, at the ball, suddenly, the Pokémon present started marching in a line to another place to play by themselves. Suddenly, Mew teleports there, appearing in front of Pikachu. Masato is able to see this through an ajar door, as is someone else through a window...
: "I've found you, Mew!"
Kiddo then begins her job, to place a transmitter on Mew. She has her two Manyula do it for her. The Pokémon engage in a battle, during which Pikachu is injured in an explosion. Pikachu lands in the arms of Meowth, who are both teleported away by Mew!
