Pokйmon Adventures - Ruby/Sapphire Arc

More Info at:
We, the many fans of Pokйmon, were ecstatic when your company announced a reprint of the Pokйmon Adventures manga series (Known as Pocket Monsters Special in Japan), especially as said reprint has now extended into recently unpublished volumes such as the Gold/Silver/Crystal Chapter and has branched off into the separate Pokйmon Adventures Diamond/Pearl/Platinum series covering the Diamond/Pearl and Platinum chapters of the original Japanese release, and the planned Pokйmon Black & White series, which will no doubt shorten the gap between the fans in Japan reading the latest chapters, and us doing the same.
However, since the last chapter of the GSC chapter has reportedly been moved from its original place in volume 15 (the first volume of the Ruby/Sapphire arc) to volume 14 (the final Gold/Silver/Crystal volume), some doubt has now been cast over the future of the Ruby/Sapphire, FireRed/LeafGreen, Emerald and perhaps even the HeartGold/SoulSilver chapters. If these chapters are not translated and released into English, it would cause plot holes in future volumes and would no doubt anger a lot of the franchises older fans, who have already had to fight for the GSC arc.
Responses from the company have stated the ambiguous No plans to release them, and some seemingly even asking for proof of demand. We, the undersigned, respect the need for the more recent chapters to be printed to appeal to the newer fans, and to be up to date; however, we also hope that this important era of the franchise is not forgotten.
Please Viz Media, dont let the fans down by not releasing these volumes.
