Fans of the Pokémon franchise can look forward to adding a new manga to their collection soon enough. VIZ Media will be releasing the Pokémon Sun & Moon manga on May 8, 2018!

According to the official press release, the Pokémon Sun & Moon manga is rated ‘A’ for All Ages and it will be released exclusively in print with an MSRP of $4.99 U.S. ($6.99 CAN). Work of writer Hidenori Kusaka and artist Satoshi Yamamoto is featured. VIZ Media will also be releasing future volumes of Pokémon Sun & Moon every four months. You’ll be able to buy the first volume this year on May 8.

Here’s the official synopsis:

In this new Pokémon story arc, Moon is on her way to deliver a rare Pokémon to Professor Kukui in the Alola region when she meets his good friend Sun, a courier entrusted with a special Pokédex. Sun offers to safely deliver Moon to the professor’s lab… But then they tangle with a group of grunts from Team Skull and are attacked by a mysterious Pokémon! What is this sparkling stone the mysterious Pokémon leaves behind…?

Exciting locales, devious villains, and scores of memorable new characters await readers in Pokémon Sun & Moon,” says Annette Roman, Editor. “We invite new and longtime Pokémon fans to dive into all the fun in these brand-new adventures!

It’s a known fact that Pokémon is one of the most successful international entertainment franchises of all time. I won’t be surprised if this franchise continues for decades to come. Also, it’s great that new fans continue being introduced to this franchise while some older fans, like myself, can take a break and still be able to jump right in whenever they want. We all came back for Pokémon GO!

I’ve been watching the currently airing Pokémon Sun & Moon anime series. That’s also why I’m looking forward to the release of Pokémon Sun & Moon manga by VIZ Media.
