Pokémon the Movie 2000 is a graphic novel published by VIZ Media in North America and Shogakukan in Japan. It is a manga-style book (called "Animation Comics" by VIZ at the time of publication, now branded as "Ani-Manga") which retells the plotlines of The Power of One and Pikachu's Rescue Adventure using screenshots from both films. The book credits Hideki Sonoda and Takeshi Shudō as the authors.
Like the Pokémon the First Movie graphic novel, Pokémon the Movie 2000 was originally published in Japan as simply one bound volume. For the North American release, it was split up into five monthly issues: four for The Power of One and one for Pikachu's Rescue Adventure. After the release of the monthly issues, the story was rereleased as one bound volume.
The Pikachu's Rescue Adventure chapter was later reprinted in the All That Pikachu! graphic novel.
