This year's May issue of Shogakukan's Coro Coro Comics magazine announced on Friday that it will publish a side story manga series for the upcoming 21st film in the Pokémon franchise, Gekijōban Pocket Monster: Minna no Monogatari (Pokémon the Movie: Everyone's Story). A preview ran in the issue, and the series will launch in full in the magazine's next issue in May.
The manga is titled Gekijōban Pocket Monster: Minna no Monogatari Gaiden -Episode Zeraora- (Pokémon the Movie: Everyone's Story Side Story -Episode Zeraora-). Kemon Kawamoto (Pokémon the Movie: Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel manga, Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! one-shot) is drawing the series.
