List of Electric Tale of Pikachu monthly issues

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of monthly issues of the manga series The Electric Tale of Pikachu. These monthly American-style comic books were released by VIZ Media before the release of the collected volumes, as this format was more popular for American or Japanese comics in the early 2000s, before readers began to prefer collected volumes or monthly manga magazines.

Each volume of The Electric Tale of Pikachu was given a name by VIZ Media, and the monthly comic issues that compose each individual volume correspond to each volume's name. Therefore, the numbering of the issues resets at the beginning of every new volume. For example, ET05 is the chapter in the first issue of Pikachu Shocks Back, and the fifth monthly issue overall.

While the English versions of these manga books have been translated into other languages worldwide, they are not available in Japan or Singapore.
