Japanese cover of Pokémon Adventures volume 15

In a hidden link on the VIZ Kids official website, which is operated by VIZ Media, pages for volumes from the Ruby & Sapphire chapter of Pokémon Adventures have begun to appear. While such links have appeared on VIZ Media's website before, they have been updated with new release dates and ISBN information. Of particular interest is that volume 16's page includes a summary of the volume's events. The hidden links exist all the way to volume 29, which has a release date listed of 2015. Any attempt to click the "buy now" button leads to a 404 error.

While this news is promising to Pokémon manga fans located in VIZ Media's publishing region, it has not been confirmed officially, nor have the volumes appeared on third-party shopping sites such as Amazon.com.

To date, VIZ Media has released the first fourteen volumes of the Pokémon Adventures manga. The last round of the Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter, which is normally in Volume 15, was put at the end of Volume 14. VIZ Media has also released the first six volumes in the Diamond & Pearl chapter, beginning with Volume 30, as a seperately numbered series titled Pokémon Adventures: Diamond & Pearl/Platinum. VIZ Media has also been collecting rounds from the magazine publication of the Black & White chapter and releasing them as a third series, Pokémon Black and White, which has 8 volumes so far.
