Pokémon RéBURST, or Pocket Monsters RéBURST, was a shonen manga based around Pokémon. It ran from March 9, 2011, and ended on October 10 of the following year. The manga primarily stars a super-strong boy named Ryouga and his two friends (a weird journalist named Yappy and an investigator girl named Miruto), though a ninja named Karuta and a female thief named Rug join them later on.
Like the name suggests, certain characters in the manga have what is known as "Burst." Burst is a special power that allows people to fuse with or transform into a Pokémon; specifically, Ryouga's power fuses him with the Legendary Pokémon Zekrom. Other people with Ryouga's power are called "Burst Warriors," and they have a crystal that is known as a "Burst Heart." With the power of Burst at their disposal, Ryouga and his friends fight back against an evil organization known as the "Great Gavel." They also journey in search of a strange man known as "Arcades," a person who has knowledge of what happened to Ryouga's missing father.
- Unlike most of the other installments in the Pokémon franchise (which are typically lighthearted and family-friendly), Pokémon RéBURST is serious and full of adult themes. The manga is also unique in that it is the only place in the entire Pokémon franchise where a female character's underwear can be seen- near the end of chapter 10, Miruto's underwear can be seen when a Zorua transforms into her and attacks Ryouga.
