Pokemon Horizon Sun and Moon Volume 1 Review

-Written by: Brooke

Get ready for another Pokemon adventure with a rocky underdog story! Volume one starts out another Pokemon journey in the Alola region. We're quickly reunited with old faces from the games, as well as newly introduced characters!

Our story begins with young Akira, visiting Alola's very own Professor Kukui. We soon realize Akira is a spunky, excitable yet intuitive boy that has a love for Pokemon battles, and can't wait to begin his journey. Along the way he meets a girl about his age named Mana. Mana explains that she's met a rockruff that loves to battle, but she believes he isn't very good at it and is worried he will hurt himself. Akira watched rockruff take on ridiculously powerful battle opponents and soon realized that rockruff wanted to be stronger and he was pushing himself as hard as he could!


Akira and Rockruff quickly form a bond due to Akira's quick understanding to what Rockruff wanted. This manga follows the typical Pokemon manga where the Pokemon cannot speak, therefore, you can tell how great of a trainer Akira is! The manga has many endearing images of Akira and Rockruff being spontaneously cute together, and shows how similar the two really are, and how it shows in their battles. Pokemon Sun and Moon introduced Z-Moves which seem to be the focus of this next installment of the manga. If you're looking for a Pokemon classic with an adorable duo, this is definitely a good read. Below you can see some images from the manga that really shows how close they become and how silly they can be, as well as a familiar face lurking in the shadows... Or is it?! Pick up your copy today to find out!
