Pokémon Adventures: Black 2 & White 2 Manga Resumes After 1 Year Hiatus

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Hidenori Kusaka's manga has been on hiatus since February 2018

Shogakukan's Sunday Webry manga website published the 19th chapter of Hidenori Kusaka's Pokémon Adventures: Black 2 & White 2 (Pocket Monster Special B2 W2) manga — the first chapter in over a year — on Friday.

Kusaka had Tweeted in January that the manga will resume once a clear plan to the manga's ending "was visible."

Viz Media publishes the manga in English, and it describes the story:

Awesome Pokémon adventures inspired by the best-selling Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 video games!

Two years have passed since Team Plasma was defeated and Trainer Black was sucked into the Light Stone along with Legendary Pokémon Reshiram… Now Team Plasma is back to its wicked ways, controlling other people's Pokémon and even wild Pokémon with technology. Luckily, a new young hero and Looker of the International Police are on their trail…

Colress, the new leader of Team Plasma, is attacking the Unova region. His machines control Pokémon, wielding their powers for evil instead of good. Fortunately, a way to jam the signals is stored on a memory card. But who has the card…? A girl at the Pokémon Trainers' School! Maybe that's why our hero is such a flirt—he's just doing his job gathering intel. But he'd better stop playing the field and find that card fast before someone beats him to it!

Kusaka launched the manga in Sunday Webry in July 2017 as the 11th arc of the manga (the manga is considered part of Kusaka's longer-running Pokémon Adventures manga in Japan). Kusaka published the manga's 18th chapter in February 2018. Shogakukan published the manga's 53rd compiled book volume (again counting from the first volume of Pokémon Adventures in Japan) in August 2017, and Viz Media released the corresponding second volume of the Pokémon Adventures: Black 2 & White 2 manga (seen above right) in July 2018.
