New Pokemon Anime Will Get a Manga Soon

This is a big year for Pokemon, Ash won his first Alola League Championship, Pokemon: Sun & Moon came to a close, Professor Kukui’s wife got pregnant, and there’s a major reboot of the series happening in its latest animated iteration: Pokemon The Series. That’s not all though. It looks like Pokemon is getting a brand new manga adaptation based on Pokemon: The Series.

The December issue of Shogakukan’s Coro Coro comics announced that the new Pokemon anime will be adapted into a manga, illustrated by Machito Gomi.

@dorisuto01 tweeted out the announcement of the manga adaptation with a photo of the magazine. Hardcore Pokemon fans may recognize the name Machito Gomi, as he is responsible for the manga adaptation of Pokemon: Mewtwo Returns and Mewtwo Strikes Back.

The new anime is going to premiere on TV Tokyo on 17th November at 5:30 p.m. labelled as an “expanded live broadcast special”. The series will then continue to serialize new episodes every Sunday, in the same time slot as Pokemon: Sun & Moon.

About Pokemon:

Pokemon first released in 1996, is set up in a world where you can catch monsters and store them in pocket-sized poke-balls, thus the name Pocket Monsters or Pokemon. They are creatures with an affinity to certain elements and some superhuman abilities related to the particular element. Revolving around a teenage boy Ash Ketchum, it takes us through his journey to becoming the greatest Pokemon trainer the world has ever seen.
