    Good news Pokemon Adventure Fans!

    In the coming months, VIZ will be releasing Pokemon Adventures, the longest and most popular Pokemon manga series, digitally on Kindle, ComiXology, iBooks, Nook, GooglePlay and VIZ platforms. The story arcs will be released in a monthly basis up to December. Also, I don't believe this is actually the first time VIZ has released them digitally so I'm not sure if this is permanent but for now each Volume (which consists of around 200 pages) cost 6.99 each. Also if your new to the series, they have a free preview. So if you ever wanted Pokemon Adventures digitally on the go on your laptop or wanted to support the creators in anyway, here's a great way to start!

    Release Dates
    August - RBGY Arc
    August - GSC Arc
    September - RS Arc
    October - FRLG/E Arc
    November - DPP Arc
    December - HGSS/BW/BW2

    Of course they do this right as I was almost caught up on the physical volumes. Thanks for the heads up though. I wonder why it took them so long to actually do this though.

    Pokemon Adventures - Ruby and Sapphire Arc has already been officially released on every platform offered on the Viz site EXCEPT for Amazon's Kindle apparently. I use the Kindle version on my PC and from what I've seen I assume it'll release in early October. Also just look at that Groudon, he is just so happy. On an entirely different note, what format do you use to read Pokemon Adventures digitally also why? For example, is it better than any of the other formats Viz offers.

    Update - As of Sep. 27th, the Kindle version is out.

    Not only did the Kindle version of RS arrived today, the FRLG and Emerald Arcs have released today as well on all of the formats, including Amazon Kindle, with the exception of one. The only format missing is iBook as of now. So yeah, FRLG and the Emerald Arc have been released today DIGITALLY!

    Pokemon Adventures Diamond and Pearl + Platinum Chapters are available for digital pre-orders. Just a heads-up as of now, the Viz site has not updated it's sites for available digital pre-orders so I recommend you go straight to your usual digital seller, like Amazon or Itunes, for the comics. According to Amazon Kindle, Pokemon Adventures Diamond and Pearl + Platinum chapter comes out digitally in Nov. 27th 2018.

    Don't bother buying them just yet, their covers are broken and I've been going back and forth with another person e-mailing VIZ to actually fix the covers.
    They fixed *one* out of like 5 others affected.

    Sad that they knew about this issue well ahead of release schedule and they decided to kinda just do nothing about it and now it's release day.

    Are you talking about underneath the "Story and Art by" section on the bottom of the cover, where the Pokemon or Character's body parts are blank white?

    Yep and Google play release is broken, they're missing a few volumes as well, only listing 7 in its set.

    Always a disaster when it comes to digital releases. There was a time also where VIZ temporarily pulled the volumes off digital like a month or so ago and blamed on Amazon, but Amazon blamed them saying VIZ removed it. It eventually came back up but seeing almost the entire GSC arc removed from digital shows how volatile and not permanent a digital solution really is.

    With how VIZ lost rights almost a decade ago for digital release and losing it temporarily again, it's worrying as a consumer to support a release that might get pulled again.


    I'd generally recommend having physical and digital for convenience to be honest.

    That is concerning. I suppose all the more reason to get it digitally now, once the covers are fixed, whether then wait. So far I haven't had any problems with Amazon but I did hear about how they pulled off the digital versions of RS/FRLG and E I believe a month ago or was it GSC?

    As a Marvel fanboy once told me when he looked at these pics, this is some Pokemon Infinity War stuff going down here.

    Anyways, Johto, Sinnoh and Unova fans rejoice! Pokemon Adventures HeartGold & SoulSilver Chapter, Black & White Chapter and Black & White 2 Chapter are available digitally through pre-orders altogether throughout the month of December. However similar to Diamond and Pearl before, as of now the pre-orders seem to be only available at your usual sellers, not ViZ directly themselves.


    All three arcs will be released in Dec. 25th, on Christmas.
