Going to be a little delay on scanning manga, but we'll continue to upload Volumes 1-7 as time permits. As I'm in Japan, I left all my manga in the US, and I have no scanner here anyway, so I won't be able to scan any of the GSC or RS mangas.
With any luck I'll learn enough Japanese while I'm here to become a decent translator which will help all of us a lot more in the future. When I return from Japan in August scanning of Pokemon Special, Volumes 9 and up will continue. Apologies for the delay.

In the Community
We are slowly working on developing some contests for Shingetsu first, along with several larger contests for the community on pokemonfan.net/pokesocial at large, and we'll probably do a couple in cooperation with our partner site, Piplup Princess.
In Partner Sites
Welcome aboard to Pokemon Omega X, our newest member of the Islander Network.
As we work to improve PokeSocial, the only pokemon social network on the internet, we've opted to use the PokeSocial Discussion Group
to keep track of news/updates. Also, in an effort to clarify and show all of our members what they can do on Pokemonfan.net and PokeSocial, we've written up a couple things
of World of the Ancients is up, feel free to go check out the latest chapter in Dran's magnificent saga.
I was mapping out the locations of the remaining Pokemon Centers in Japan that I've not visited yet and they are very spread out. I just visited Pokemon Center Yokohama last week and it was amazing, and had a lot of different stuff that Pokemon Center Tokyo did not have, which was unexpected because I expected the Pokemon Centers to be kind of like Disney stores in Japan, and basically have pretty much the same stuff in each location. Not only that, but Yokohama was as big, if not a little bigger then Pokemon Center Tokyo! And given that Tokyo is the main one, that was even more of a surprise.
In any event, there are 6 Pokemon Centers in Japan and they're named according to the city that they are in. There's Tokyo, Yokohama, Nagoya, Osaka, Sapporo, and Fukuoka. To give you an idea of where all the Pokemon Centers are located, I quick whipped up a map; all the stars represent the location of each of the pokemon centers, and as you can see, they're pretty spread out.
So yeah, both Sapporo and Fukuoka will require more than day trips. :P In the meantime though I'm pretty confident about getting to Nagoya in one piece, so we'll be heading there next. But in the mean time, you guys can check out pictures from Pokemon Center Yokohama. It was really quite awesome. ^_^
So I'm entering my third week in Japan, and I've already hit two of six pokemon centers, you already saw pictures from Pokemon Center Tokyo, and I'll be putting up pictures from Pokemon Center Yokohama which was, if possible, even more awesome then Pokemon Center Tokyo was. In any event, while in Pokemon Center I picked up a copy of what I thought was CoroCoro. Now I've never seen an issue of CoroCoro before, and I expected something like a magazine. :O With like news, and what not inside it. Instead I find that it's mostly comics. o.O But after seeing PokeBeach's news post about the May issue of CoroCoro, I realized that what I had was indeed, the may issue of CoroCoro. :O Clicking on the pictures will bring up a full view of them.
Each of them is linked in a specific gallery, one for the Arceus giveaway info, one for the manga adaptation pictures, and another "gallery" set for the pokemon special, so just clicking on the first one and flicking through them should get you through em', that way you don't have to click on each one to see a full view.
So with that realization in hand, I proceeded to take a crap load of pictures of all the stuff inside of the May issue of Coro Coro. I've also got some photos of some other stuff I've gotten, including some Pokemon 151 shirts that I had bought at Pokemon Center. As you've probably already seen on PokeBeach or Serebii or somewhere else, the May Issue of Coro Coro primarily discussed the upcoming release of the 12th Pokemon Movie starring Arceus. There was also a smaller comic book at the back of this issue of Coro Coro which had a manga version of the upcoming movie. There was some stuff about Mystery Dungeon that I didn't take pictures of. In this issue of CoroCoro was a Diamond and Pearl Manga chapter which I took pictures of, in case anybody is interested in taking a look at it.
Also, couple shots here of stuff i got in Pokemon Center. Honestly, I remember a while back that they said the Pokemon 151 people were stopping production of that clothing line, and now having some of those shirts, I'm really surprised that it happened, those shirts are nothing short of awesome. I've had a handful of good pokemon shirts in my day, but these far surpass anything I've seen before, so I'm very surprised that they stopped making them, maybe reception was poor, but it's difficult to believe. I may well go back and get more, and give a couple out as prizes in contests or something.
My apologies in advance, all of them are photos, not scans, as I do not have access to a scanner here in Japan, but I do have my camera, and I did my best to take some decent pictures of everything. The following photos are regarding Arceus. "Arceus is at Level 100, inside a Cherish Ball, and holding a Rowap Berry, which deals damage to an attacking Pokemon when it uses a special attack that hits Arceus. It will know Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina's signature attacks as well as its own: Judgement, Roar of Time, Spacial Rend, and Shadow Force. It will be available for download to people who see the 12th movie." thanks to PokeBeach for the info.
PokeBeach also obtained some rough translations as to what was going on in the manga adaptation of the movie. As I'm still learning katakana and kanji (just know hiragana) I can only read bits and pieces of it, lol, so I wouldn't be able to translate much of it. xD Pictures we'll put first. The description is courtesy of PokeBeach, below. thanks and credit to them.
There's a lot of stuff, and I put PokeBeach's translation and the Diamond and Pearl Pokemon Special Chapters in the full thing. Clicking on "Add Comment" will show you the whole article and you can see everything. So be sure to check it out.
