Pokémon Adventures: Diamond and Pearl/Platinum volume 1
In North America, VIZ Media released Volume 30 of Pokémon Adventures, published as Volume 1 of a second series, "Pokémon Adventures: Diamond and Pearl/Platinum". This release was originally planned for February, but was pushed back to March for unknown reasons. This volume marks the beginning of the Diamond & Pearl chapter, and allows fans to follow the adventures of characters Diamond, Pearl and Lady Berlitz simultaneously with VIZ Media's continued releases of the Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter, the next volume of which is due out in April. In addition, VIZ Media announced in a press release that they have acquired the licence for the brand-new Black & White chapter of Pokémon Adventures. The Black & White chapter, which has been serializing in magazines for a few weeks, has not yet been published in graphic novel format in Japan, so it is believed by many fans that these volumes (which are shorter than usual and retail for $4.99 USD) will be made directly from the magazine chapters with original cover artwork. The first two volumes of the Black & White chapter as published by VIZ Media are due out in July.
