The Pokémon Manga Heads to Alola!

Follow the adventures of Moon and Sun with the launch of VIZ’s latest Pokémon manga, Pokémon: Sun & Moon, Vol. 1.

A new chapter of VIZ's long-running Pokémon manga is about to begin with the launch of the latest series, Pokémon: Sun & Moon, Vol. 1. Headed up by the popular creative team of writer Hidenori Kusaka and artist Satoshi Yamamoto, Pokémon: Sun & Moon follows a Pokémon Trainer named Moon in a series of adventures that is markedly different from those we've seen in the video games and the animated Pokémon the Series.

As the story begins, Moon is on her way to deliver a rare Pokémon to Professor Kukui in the Alola region. Along the way, she crosses paths with Sun, a delivery boy who's been entrusted with a special Pokédex. Together, the two set off for the professor's lab, but they're waylaid by some troublesome Team Skull grunts and attacked by a mysterious Pokémon. When the Pokémon leaves behind an equally mysterious sparkling stone, it becomes clear that this is only the beginning of Moon and Sun's fantastic journey!

The first volume in this ongoing series features 80 fun-filled pages, and it's available now where books are sold. See Alola in a whole new light in Pokémon: Sun & Moon, Vol. 1, and look for the second volume to arrive in September 2018.

Trainers who have registered their game at the Pokémon Global Link before the end of the global mission will receive double the number of Festival Coins—4,000 when the goal is reached, and 2,000 even if it isn’t. You’ll need a Pokémon Trainer Club account to register your game and collect the bonus Festival Coins, so be sure to sign up for a free account today.

In order to compete in the Battle Tree in Pokémon Ultra Sun or Pokémon Ultra Moon, you will need to play the game until you become Champion. The Battle Tree can then be accessed on Poni Island to the west of Poni Gauntlet. At the Battle Tree, Trainers will face a gauntlet of challengers. The goal is to defeat as many opponents in a row as possible without suffering a defeat. The more opponents you conquer, the more BP you earn.

So gather up a party of your most skilled Pokémon and prepare to battle your way to victory and glory! Together, we can make this global mission a success!
