It has been announced, through posters and fliers at the Jisedai World Hobby Fair Winter 2011, that Shogakukan will be featuring a new Pokemon manga series in its Weekly Shonen Sunday. The name of the manga is currently unknown, however, it will apparently be aimed at older audiences as opposed to the other Pokemon manga (such as Pokemon Special) which are typically seen as being aimed at children. This is quite rare, as almost all Pokemon-related merchandising is usually directed towards children, and marketing it expanded on from there. Previous manga series featured in Shonen Sunday include Detective Conan ("Case Closed" in North America), and InuYasha. The new Pokemon manga will begin serialization is March, and is meant to be an attempt at "expanding the market".
