Today, I looked closer to the Chinese Censhorship World, also known as Baidu. It's hard to find anything there but despite that I searched for 特别篇 (Special). And now I'll tell you what I found. All the "scans" are digital camera photos, rather than scans and due to that they are very low quality


Chapter 280 of PokeSpecial (Japanese):

Movie 10 Adaptation (part 1) (Simplified Mandarin, with scary watermark):

Movie 10 Adaptation (part 2) (Simplified Mandarin):
http://tieba.baidu.com/f?kz=305741474

A chapter of Pokemon DP Manga (Chinese Scanslation):

Volume 22 of PokeSpecial (Simpliflied Mandarin):

Volume 25 of PokeSpecial (Japanese):

A chapter of Emerald PokeSpecial (Japanese, scanned from Sho4)

A photobucket album with some (terribly watermarked :/) Volume 26 scans (Chinese Scanslation).

And now something funny. It's not scan, though

Those Volume 25 scans in Japanese are apparently done with a scanner (and not that bad)! Those might be usable for scanslations! ^^

The Volume 22 scans are even worse than the ones we have now, though. (I find it interesting how they use *green* tinted ink. O_o) Anyone tried searching for the site on the watermarks, though? Maybe they have even more (bad) scans.

I tried. That site seems to be dead. It doesn't load at all!

I just tried, and it worked for me!

http://pm222.com/

The page title is "PokeMon双子星". Pretty professional-looking, too. They seem to have a lot of stuff. Fanart/desktop backgrounds gallery, a bunch of articles on the games, etc etc. I don't have time to take a very detailed look, but this could be useful. (We might need their permission before using their scans though, right?)

Thanks so much, Maxim, for digging this up for us! I know I could never survive searching Baidu! *shivers*

Not works for me, never loads the page. When you have time benji, detail a little more, and thanks maxim for links of scans :D

Ooooops, sorry, kazukiPP! It was pm222.com, not pm777.com. *whacks self in head* >.<

You're sure there are scans on there? I can't find any.

Even if you can't read Chinese, you can search "site:pm222.com 特别篇" on Google (http://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Apm222.com+%E7%89%B9%E5%88%AB%E7%AF%87&ie=UTF-8). ^^

Yeah, that finds anything about special, not scans.

No, for example, the fourth result returned a link to a thread chock-full of volume 23 Mandarin scans. And the fifth result linked to some good-resolution (but evil -- watermarked) scans from volume 22. (Their scans are in the forums, not in the galleries, so maybe that's why you didn't find them at first. ^^)

Okay. It loads. But why so damn slowly?

Is it something wrong with my Internet connection, or that site is so ****ass slow?!

It sometimes loads, and sometimes does not.

I agree some of the pages are slow, I don't know if there is something to load or not. But the good part is, the site has scans for the latest volumes even volume 26. The only problem was since everything is in chinese, I had to look into each and every single message just to find it. I saw that they had almost everything on volume 26 except chapter 300-301. Can someone help me in on this one? Thanks

I DON'T BELIEVE!!!

Don't worry some people are experiencing the same problems or maybe you are referring to a different site? The site I'm accessing are the forums. If the pictures won't load just right click on it and click show picture. Also Maxim was correct I found a lot of other this on the site. i would gladly post the links but I haven't had 15 posts yet sorry.

Maxim

I have an idea.

Someone (who can view that page) will collect all the scans he found there and upload them somewhere. That's the best idea I can think.

you mean, make a new thread for the scans found in that site? You mean the forums right? Very interesting.

You got it wrong. I meant pm222.com site, not Baidu.

You posted the scans I found TWICE (except you added some tiny fanart and ugly quality 23).

I meant to zip and post the scans from pm222.com, the site which is barely accessible.

I was just trying to help jeez. Ok I'll see what I can do, Its hard reading chinese you know. Also there is nothing wrong with putting up fan art. I just thought it would be a good idea.

He did find some DP scans, though. ^^
Though they're marked. =(

Oh, and Maxim, aren't you able to see the Google cache when you search on Google? I suppose it still wouldn't provide any images, but can you?

It's Okay. Don't worry.

No, I can't, I just get a blank page with a Google thingy on the top.

Can anyone else enter the site? I mean http://pm222.com/. I have tried it before, the link itself works however when compared to the chances of capturing a rare pokemon it only works 10% of the time, not only that but I only reached the front page. I can't reach the other pages because its too slow. How about you guys do you have better luck than I am? If you do please share the things on that site its too annoying.

Also about the google search that was given about that site, I did found this http://v.pm222.com/index?siteid=pm222 That was the closest I got on the search links from google. Does anyone have a clue on this? Thanks

Well...

Volumes 23 & 24 of Special (although some chapters quality sucks and they are all watermarked).

Volume 22 of Special but it's nothing different from what we have...

Volume 3 of Pokemon Getto Da Ze (I like the art)

One Chapter from Volume 9 of Pocket Monsters (you know, the one with Clefairy)

Oh I see thank you very much. In truth I have been anticipating the remaining chapters of Volume 26 (300-301) and the next volumes. I guess I have to wait a bit more.
