Farshore secures expanded world publishing rights for Pokémon

Farshore has secured expanded global publishing rights for Pokémon titles from July 2022, securing the right to significantly expand its publishing offering with a variety of new formats.

The company has seen immense success with its selection of Pokémon puzzle books, annuals and gift boxes, contributing to Pokémon’s position as a top ten children’s book brand in 2021 (Nielsen Bookscan, 2021). Farshore’s Pokémon annual is a must-have title every year and was the sixth bestselling title in the category in 2021.

Farshore has ambitious plans to extend its Pokémon range from 2022, with the expanded deal granting rights for new formats such as sticker books, chapter books, readers and more. Farshore will be releasing new Pokémon titles later this year, including a newly updated and expanded edition of the Pokémon Encyclopedia on 27 October.

“We are huge fans of Pokémon and have been partners on the annuals for over five years,” commented Emma Cairns-Smith, global licensing and acquisition director at Farshore. “We are therefore delighted to announce the extension of our relationship to cover a wider portfolio of titles from annuals and puzzle books to novelty, activity, guidebooks and a whole host more.”
