While the anime is perhaps more prominent, the Pokémon Adventures manga has been adapting the games for just as long under the name Pokémon Special in Japan.
Now collectors of the volumes can look forward to more adventures, as Viz Media has announced that it’ll be releasing Pokémon Adventures: X•Y next spring.

It’s worth noting that the X & Y arc of the story was previously localized but in a shorter magazine format. It’s likely this new release will be released as larger volumes instead, with all of the art changes and extra content added to the updated Japanese tankōbon collections.
