Pokémon Creative Colouring, The Pokémon Encyclopedia and The Pokémon Sticker Book have already proved to be popular titles among fans, with an average of over 1000 copies of The Pokémon Encyclopedia selling a day.

Katie Price, licensing director, Hachette Children’s Group, said: “We are thrilled with the initial sales of the first three titles.

“With a new Pokémon video game out this November, the momentum behind Pokémon continues and we believe there is huge demand for a broader range of publishing under this license.”
