It was recently announced that the English-language publication of the fourteenth volume of the "Pokémon Adventures" manga series will be larger than previous volumes in the series with a total of 272 pages, due to the 180th 'round', which was originally published in volume 15 being moved to volume 14. This has led to some confusion amongst fans as to whether or not the fourth "chapter", the "Ruby & Sapphire" arc, and perhaps even chapters based on the other Generation III games, will be published.
Fans who reached out to VIZ Media have received responses ranging from the company claiming to have no plans to release the arc (as they have recently relaunched the series with the recent Diamond & Pearl and Black & White chapters), while other emails have been seemingly asking for proof of demand; so in response to that, an online petition asking Viz Media to reconsider this decision has been created.
This is not the first time in which Viz Media has done something similar. Two chapters of Akira Toriyama's "Dragonball" manga were moved out of the 17th volume to allow them to localise that volume as the first of "Dragonball Z".
Viz Media originally ceased publication of the "Pokémon Adventures" series after the Yellow chapter. Fan demand however, prompted the company to start reprinting the series from the beginning in June 2009, which later resulted in the previously unpublished Gold, Silver & Crystal arc being published, beginning in August 2010. The previously mentioned 14th volume of Pokémon Adventures will be released by Viz Media on August 2nd.
