It is one of the longest-running Pokémon manga series to date and is very well-known in Japan. It has been serialized in CoroCoro ever since its beginnings.

Though Pocket Monsters was a success, it was briefly taken off the shelves due to nudity in the second chapter of volume one. There was also some nudity in volume two.
