I saw it being on the release calender on

I specifically remember at least half of this stuff getting announced (at least on other sites) but I believe some of it is new.

I, at least, didn't know we were getting a reissue of the AWESOME Pokemon Adventure manga~ at a $7.99 msrp, no less! I really hope this is unflipped. And with Blue and Green having the right names, because I am confused easily. And past where it got released the first time. (They're advertising it as "the very fist Pokemon saga" though? Are they aware Pokemon was a game first? I do recall the game's creator saying that this manga was the best animanga version of what he had in mind, but still...)
