EDIT: Aaaaaaand amiami is already sold out…
That’s a lot of reading for Christmas. Have to consider putting one or two copies on my wish list.
@aj1 and @pottsinator
Too bad it’s already sold out, though I’m sure we’ll see it soon in stores. I’d be curious to know what Pokemon are featured in the illustrations.
Seems it’s going to be more than just a collection of images.

Illustrator comments/interviews will be awesome to read wait to be translated.
Is it already sold out?
I am glad I got my orders in!
Just checked… It is still available for sale?
I like how the product description of “The first illustration collected book of Pokemon!” simple ignores the visual guides released with every DP expansion in Japan.
I’m not familiar with japanese purchase sources, so if someone could point me to a place to put my money in, that would be appreciated. Haha
Pre orders seem to have ended SUPER quickly. Hoping they under estimated the demand and will put more up.
i believe amiami has them for sale
You can order them off of amazon.co.jp
That’s where I ordered mine?
Are you asking to us whether or not you ordered them off amazon jp?
Would be great to have one of those :0
Gotta find myself a copy.
Does anybody here know Japanese? I NEED translations of the interviews with the artists in my life. ;_;
Okay so I seriously just signed up for Amiami because I want this book. Do they ever reopen pre-orders once they’re closed?
They have opened up Closed Pre-Orders in the past. I suppose it’s all about how much they order.
Already ordered my copy from amazon.jp only 1400yen for ship the book! Also the 2 promo cards are beautiful.
