Pocket Monsters Film Comic is a series of graphic novels published by CoroCoro in Japan. Each volume of Pocket Monsters Film Comic adapts about four episodes of the Pokémon anime into comics, plus extra content such as Pokédex entries and character biographies.

While the full Pocket Monsters Film Comic series has not been translated into English by VIZ Media or Chuang Yi, the first six chapters were translated by VIZ Media in Pokémon Power magazine and published in a book entitled Pokémon TV Animation Comic - I Choose You!.
