Beginning in June 2014, European French publisher Kurokawa began releasing the Red, Green & Blue chapter and the Yellow chapter together as a series of three omnibus volumes. While the Red, Green & Blue chapter and the Yellow chapter had been previously released in France by publisher Glénat, these volumes feature a new translation. Kurokawa's omnibus volumes contain all the adventure route maps from the original Japanese volumes, but lack the character introduction pages from the beginning of the volumes.
This chapter is technically the only arc of Pokémon Adventures not named after a main series game, as the corresponding game was known as Pocket Monsters Pikachu in Japan. Despite this, the game is called Pokémon Yellow Version in every other country.
This is the only chapter released before it's corresponding game. The first chapter was serialized in May 1998, while Pokémon Yellow Version came out in September of that year.
