Each comic in the series represents a Pokémon from the Unova Pokédex, illustrating an attribute or special ability of each Pokémon using a humorous cartoon (Keldeo, Meloetta and Genesect are excluded). The series primarily uses slapstick as a source of humour. All the Pokémon are depicted as being able to talk, and no human characters appear in the series.
In addition to the manga pages, the volume also includes a type chart, Pokémon trivia quizzes next to each comic, and listings such as "Top 3 Heaviest Pokémon", "Top 3 Smallest Pokémon", etc.
- This manga was revealed to North American audiences for the first time on Free Comic Book Day 2013, in which a sampler of this manga was included with Uglydoll Comics, which is also published by VIZ Media.
