This is great for a number of reasons. One, Viz has finally been able to bring Pokémon manga into the digital world, which is great since traditional print media is pretty much a sinking ship at this point. Two, having an app to upload their Pokémon manga onto opens up a world of possibilities for the company. They could re-release older series like The Electric Tale of Pikachu
and Magical Pokémon Journey, they could use it to debut some of the more niche manga series that they may have passed on before because of printing costs, they could release those series that are only a few chapters long that never got graphic novel releases in Japan, they could work something out to get manga chapters of Special released the same week as Japan the way they do with some of their Shonen Jump titles...if you're a fan of the Pokémon manga, you have a lot of reasons to be excited about this.
