Pokémon Sun and Moon (anime)
Here’s the preview for the next episode of the Pokémon Sun and Moon anime series, airing on Thursday in Japan:
Pokémon Sun and Moon (manga)
Last week, Vol. 1 of the Pokémon Sun and Moon manga was released in North America. It’s the latest chapter in the long-running Pokémon manga by Hidenori Kusaka (writer) and Satoshi Yamamoto (artist), and it follows the adventures of a Pokémon trainer named Moon. It’s a completely different story than the games and the anime series.
Here’s what the story is all about:
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!
Vol. 1 features 80 pages, and will be followed by Vol. 2 in September.
