On Christmas Day, Kurokawa made a special announcement to their fans via Facebook and their website, Kuroblog; confirming the release details for the X & Y chapter of Pokémon Adventures.

The first volume of the X & Y chapter in France will be released on February 12, 2015 and will be titled Pokémon XY, much like the English releases by VIZ Media. This release will certainly be not related to VIZ Media's, as it is 192 pages in length, more similar to the Japanese releases. Kurokawa has not specified if their release will be identical to the Japanese volumes or if it will be yet another unique adaptation of the magazine version.
The blog posting also confirmed that the French names of X and Y will be Xavier and Yvonne, respectively. These names were chosen at the request of The Pokémon Company.
