Well I did a bit of digging around and I think I've solved it. They are not exactly knockoffs like Lysson said, but they are a thing called Dojinshi.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dōjinshi (同人誌?, often transliterated as doujinshi) is the Japanese term for self-published works, usually magazines, manga or novels.
I also found a few that were being sold on a Japanese website, of course they were all out of stock.
I attached some pictures of what they are like inside and some of the info along with the website I saw them on.
Let me know if anyone has ever heard of these before, or if anyone agrees with my findings.
You might have a scenario where some of these books are fan comics made for doujins. Is there any pictures of the actual comics? Most fans cant have an official bound book so that would solve that scenario. I only say this because some of the books clearly have Japanese on them.

Japan didn't start putting the accent over the "e" in Pokemon until very recently. It's perfectly normal to see "Pokemon" (with no accent) or even "Pockemon" used during the time these books would have been printed.Originally Posted by Lysson
