I'm not sure why they lowered our expectations by saying that Volume 42 would be the end (let alone giving us a faux ending two years ago), but I admit that I'm impressed. The antagonists from the first three chapters seem to be working together, but since Lance has reformed, that probably goes for Pryce and Giovanni, as well. Is Sird their common enemy?

If you want to order it in English without importing it using a deputy service the only website I know about is Kinokuniya.
Kinokuniya USA: https://bookweb.kinokuniya.co.jp/guest/cgi-bin/wshoseaohb.cgi?W-NIPS=9988615310&AREA=02&LANG=E

I have heard that bookstores in "Japan Towns" and "China Towns" (possibly also "Korea Towns", but that's just my speculations) sometimes have Pokémon manga in their respective language.
Some bookstores (at least Japanese) even offer CoroCoro subscriptions.
According to what I've heard there's at least one bookshop in Japan Town, San Fransisco (possibly Kinokuniya) and one bookshop in China Town, Los Angeles (if I remeber correctly) that offer Pokémon manga.
However, since vol. 42 has only been released in Japanese so far, it's Japanese bookstores that you'll have to turn to.
Kinokuniya has stores all over the US:
Vol. 42 is in stock in New York, San Francisco, Seattle and Costa Mesa (It wouldn't surprise me if you can order it to the other stores as well. And maybe even order books from Kinokuniya stores outside the US so that they arrive to a US Kinokuniya store, but this is of course speculations.)

Going back to the topic, the Platinum and HGSS Chapters are rather short compared to the previous sagas. So, I'm guessing that Kusaka and Yamamoto are trying to catch up since the magazines serializing the manga aren't as much as before...
Chuang Yi can't legally sell Pokémon mangas outside of CY's licensing areas and Viz is no different. I'm pretty sure that if Chuang Yi can't sell their Pokémon mangas to the US, Europe and South Africa, Viz can't sell theirs to CY's licensing areas in Southeast Asia, Australasia and India.
That's why third parties like Kinokuniya and eBay sellers export / import it. For example if you check for Viz Pokémon manga at Kinokuniya's Singaporean website you'll note that the prizes are twice as high as usual. This is probably because they have to import it themselves in smaller bulks instead of using Viz's supply chain.
