Amazon announces Pokémon Adventures release dates
The fifth volume of the Diamond & Pearl chapter and the eighth volume of the Black & White chapter of Pokémon Adventures have had both their releases dates revealed by internet retailer Amazon to be June 5 and July 3, 2012, respectively.
Pokémon Adventures: Diamond and Pearl/Platinum volume 5 will continue the adventures of Lady Berlitz as she faces off against Team Galactic with her two bodyguard friends Diamond and Pearl. Pokémon Black and White volume 8 will continue the adventures of Black, White, and their friends Cheren and Bianca as they go through the Unova region and face off against Team Plasma.
While Pokémon Adventures: Diamond and Pearl/Platinum volume 5 is known as volume 34 in Japan, the Black and White mini-volumes are the collected rounds of the Black & White chapter of Pokémon Adventures that have yet to be collected into proper graphic novel format in Japan.
