I found this online at Amazon: http://amzn.com/1421530619 and RightStuf: http://www.rightstuf.com/cgi-bin/catalogmgr/Zg4b7FlNniWVF5AWLw/browse/item/86579/4/0/0

I'm glad that VIZ is finally going to localize the rest of Pokemon Adventures.

Hopefully they continue on with the series. They are taking their time with releasing the series though.

Sweet, I don\'t have to go searching for the crappy Chuang Yi translations. :P I still worry for the censoring though. But after all these years, it\'s about time they finally continued this. Better go to Barnes and Nobles to get Volumes 1-5 now. :P

When I first discovered this information awhile back on the Indigo/Chapters website, I flipped out. It was like a dream come true.

I collected Pokemon Adventures issue by issue way back when it was first released in North America. It was downright depressing to hear that they wouldn\'t be translating past the Yellow arc because the manga was just so **** good. I\'ve never been a person who likes reading my manga off a computer screen, and the Singapore releases (with the shipping/handling) were far too much cash for me to buy into, so I was basically stumped and just gave up on it.

Even if Viz is taking their sweet time getting to the new releases, I\'m just happy to see that they\'re COMING. I\'d love it if they kept going straight through to the D/P saga, but to be honest... I\'d be happy with any of it, even if it was simply the G/S arc. ^^
