X & Y arc (Adventures)
|X & Y|
The main characters
The X & Y arc (Japanese: Ｘ・Ｙ編 X & Y arc), also referred to as The 12th Chapter (Japanese: 第十二章 The Twelfth Chapter), is the twelfth story arc of the Pokémon Adventures manga. It began serialization in October 2013, and ended in November 2016.
This arc follows the adventures of X and Y, who travel throughout the Kalos region after their hometown of Vaniville gets destroyed by a battle between Xerneas and Yveltal. Together with their friends Shauna, Tierno, and Trevor, they start uncovering a conspiracy concocted by the mysterious Team Flare and are forced to intervene in their plans to use the ancient ultimate weapon to kill everyone in Kalos.

Due to it taking several years before the arc is collected into a volume, the X & Y arc of Pokémon Adventures will be separately collected into mini-volumes. The chapters included in these mini-volumes will only be ones that were published in the CoroCoro Ichiban magazine. Once the Black 2 & White 2 arc ended in the regular volumes, the X & Y arc started to be collected in that format as well. The first volume was released on April 28, 2014, which ended after six volumes with the final volume released on December 28, 2016.

An English translation of the X & Y arc was released by VIZ Media under the title Pokémon XY. Despite that the magazine version is also being released in mini-volumes in Japan, VIZ Media's volumes are unique from these, and only contain about three or four chapters each, much like their previous Black & White arc mini-volumes. The series began its run on December 2, 2014, and officially ended after twelve volumes with the final volume released on October 3, 2017.
