Chuang Yi Publishing Pte Ltd. was a publishing company based in Singapore that had the license to translate and distribute various Pokémon manga in English. Founded in 1990, Chuang Yi distributed its various titles to Singapore, Malaysia, India, the Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand. Chuang Yi also distributed its products to Australia and New Zealand through Madman Entertainment. As of early 2014, it has been reported that the company has entered voluntary liquidation and is ending their manga publishing business.

Chuang Yi were best known for their publication of Pokémon Adventures, which continued even after VIZ Media stopped production of their first edition of the manga. Chuang Yi also translated several manga series into English which have never been licensed by VIZ Media, such as Pokémon Pocket Monsters and Pokémon Gold & Silver: The Golden Boys.

Publishing format

Many of Chuang Yi's older titles were published in a left-to-right format with reversed artwork. Titles which were flipped include The Electric Tale of Pikachu, Magical Pokémon Journey and most of Pokémon Adventures. Later titles, however, such as Pokémon Gold & Silver: The Golden Boys and Phantom Thief Pokémon 7 were published in a right-to-left format, retaining the original reading format from the Japanese version.
