Before the collection of rounds from the Black & White chapter of Pokémon Adventures began in Volume 43 in Japan, the rounds were collected directly from the magazine publications into mini-graphic novels by VIZ Media in North America. These volumes, published under the title Pokémon Black and White and advertised as "a Pokémon Adventures special edition", retail for $4.99 USD and contain about three or four rounds each. The first two volumes were released on July 5, 2011 with subsequent volumes following until the release of volume 20 which was released on February 3, 2015.

A box set of the first eight volumes was released on October 2, 2012 including a special full-color poster. A second box set, containing volumes 9 through 14, was released on September 2, 2014.

A French translation of the Black & White chapter has been produced separately in France by publisher Kurokawa. Unlike the VIZ Media versions, which are slimmer than a typical volume and only contain three or four rounds, the French versions are a more typical volume size and contain about eight rounds each. Like VIZ Media's version, these are collected directly from the magazine publication. The first of these volumes was published in September 2011 with subsequent releases until the release of Volume 9 on October 9, 2014.
