Chuang Yi is a publishing company based in Singapore that has the license to distribute various Pokémon manga. Founded in 1990, Chuang Yi distributes its various titles to Singapore, Malaysia, India, the Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand. Chuang Yi also distributes its products to Australia and New Zealand through Madman Entertainment.

Chuang Yi is best known for their ongoing publication of Pokémon Adventures, which has continued even after VIZ Media ceased production of their first edition of the manga. Chuang Yi also translates several manga series into English which have never been translated by VIZ Media, such as Pokémon Pocket Monsters and Golden Boys.

Publishing format

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