The Pokemon Adventures is a long-running manga series which started way back in 1997. Hidenori Kusaka is the original writer of the series. The arcs in the series are inspired by each of the Pokemon Games. There are not many differences in the game plots. So, that’s why it’s likely where Pokemon Adventures takes its inspirations from. Especially the characters which are directly taken from the games.
Since 1997 The Pokemon Adventures has produced countless arcs and Sun & Moon is currently the latest installment in the series.
Sun & Moon centers mainly around two characters. One is a girl named Moon who is a pharmacist and a skilled archer and her good friend, Sun, who is on a quest to earn 100 million Yen.
Satoshi Tajiri once said that the Pocket Monsters Special series is closest to the world he imagined while creating the franchise. He said, “This is the comic that most resembles the world I was trying to convey.”
