Awesome, seems like it's getting there progess-wise I guess.
Nice to see Viz complete DPA and continue into the Johto arc of Adventures at a steady pace. Now the big question is whether Viz will pick up another series to replace DPA.
Hopefully, everyone will have moved on from the new translation in HGSS by the time volume 9 comes out with the Tin/Bell Tower.
Unfortunately, there aren't really any currently running series, other than Special, that I can see them picking up. There are some single volume series they could release, but I don't know if they'd even consider doing those (I see that one Mystery Dungeon graphic novel as an oddity).
In any case, two months between Volumes 9 and 10 is pretty awesome. Hopefully, they'll keep up the pace into 2011.
So is Viz keeping the Japanese names for towns now?All Ages. Reads R to L (Japanese Style) A new adventure begins! In order to assist Professor Oak's research, a young trainer, Crystal, hits the streets of Yoshino City with a new Pokédex in hand! Her goal is to capture all the wild Pokémon! And what will happen when the legendary Pokémon Suicune has awakened?!

Oh it is? Strange. Some "big adventure".
Well, I'm sure they thought "Jou's Incredibly Rushed Adventure" wasn't as attractive.
They could always pick up older series, though. Chuang Yi went digging in the archives and released most notable Pokemon manga series regardless of how "current" they were. Golden Boys got it's release long after GSC got old.
(I wish they'd pick up Pocket Monsters, but I understand the complications)
