(Japanese: ポケットモンスター The Animation Pocket Monsters: The Animation) is a novelization of the Pokémon anime. It was written by Takeshi Shudō, the chief writer of the original series, and illustrated by Sayuri Ichiishi, the former lead character designer. It is a Super Quest novel published by Shogakukan.
Only two volumes were published; the first volume has ISBN 4094405410 while the second volume has ISBN 4094405429. The second volume said "To be continued in Pocket Monsters: The Animation Vol. 3", but a third volume never appeared.
The books reveal a lot of information not seen in the anime, such as about Ash's father and that Ash's mother runs the restaurant "Pallet House". However, much of the information contained in the books has since become contradicted by later seasons of the anime, which leaves the books' canonical status ambiguous.
