Sorry for not updating earlier today when much of this information was released. I have been having trouble logging in all day, and my FTP has been acting up ever since yesterday, so I can only do a small update today until my host looks into the problem. If the problem is fixed by tomorrow and I do not have a lot of homework, I will also upload two or three sets of new scans.

More D/P Scans and Translations – The set still is not out yet, but that does not stop these scans from appearing!

Bangiras has also added new translations to our [Pokemon Card Game: DP Translations] page. Since I know you are all so anxious to see what the Emperte does, you can view its translation below.
