The Pokémon Company International has tapped the media group Future to launch an official Pokémon magazine in the U.K.
With the first issue set to debut March 20, the magazine will be the ultimate guide to Pokémon video game, TV series, film and trading card game news. The magazine, which will be published 13 times a year, will also feature activities, puzzles and competitions. Each issue will also come with a cover-mounted gift.
“It is absolutely fantastic for Future to partner with an international brand as renowned as Pokémon and to be provided with the opportunity to bring the official magazine to the U.K. market,” says Lee Nutter, group publisher, entertainment group, Future. “Pokémon has never been bigger and more relevant than it is today, and the magazine will serve as the voice for its U.K. audience.”
