Junji Ito creating an official pokemon manga for Halloween!
Pokemon has been ramping up focus on it’s spookier pokemon for this halloween, and going by the official site, is producing some spook-tacular manga with none other then our own beloved Junji Ito!
Going by the preview image, it looks like the story will focus on the Ruby and Sapphire generation pokemon, Banette the doll pokemon. It will most likely expand on it’s PokeDex entry, which details it’s origin as a thrown away doll possessed by it’s own malevolent hatred for the child who threw it away, and it’s habit of stalking the streets to seek it’s revenge. Kyahaha~! Souichi looks forward to it~!
Thanks to on twitter for pointing Souichi towards this information! Kyahahah!
