I suppose that makes this a great time to see how good the official translation is(last I recall, the BW volumes were hideously overpriced for how thin they were - charging full volume prices for what amounted to a third of a volume. Maybe they’ve changed?).
Or maybe someone new will pick up the torch, but considering how bizarrely hard it is to find people willing to translate Pokemon stuff(before [PM] got their act together and started releasing consistantly, there was nobody subbing the anime other than the odd special here and there. The same applies to the manga and /a/non scans), that seems unlikely.
Don’t be that pessimistic, now. :P I have a feeling things may recover a lot faster this time.
