The Pokémon Adventures manga has been entertaining fans for years, and now it's even easier to read—no matter where your journeys take you—with its release on digital platforms. VIZ recently released the first seven volumes (Pokémon Adventures Vols. 1–7: Red & Blue) of the long-running series on digital formats, and the next seven volumes (Pokémon Adventures Vols. 8–14: Gold & Silver) are arriving on August 28. Subsequent volumes will be released each month through the rest of the year. In addition, a selection of Pokémon movie manga adaptations will hit digital platforms in January 2019.

The Pokémon Adventures manga features stories heavily inspired by the Pokémon RPG video games, with the series broken up into multiple story arcs following different protagonists as they set off on their respective travels through the world of Pokémon. The series is written by Hidenori Kusaka, with artwork for the first nine volumes provided by Mato. Satoshi Yamamoto takes over illustration duties starting in Volume 10.

Look for Pokémon Adventures on VIZ.com and the VIZ Manga App, as well as on VIZ Media digital partner platforms, including the Nook, Kobo, Kindle, iBooks, comiXology, and Google Play stores. And be sure to check out the release schedule for the rest of the year and early 2019

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.
