Ah! So sorry about that! Didn't realize! I won't do it in the future, I promise! Just trying to help out, I really know nothing about all the scanlator sites and stuff!

Please do not recommend MangaFox / MangaHere / MangaReader / mangapanda / Manga[InsertWordHere]. All of these leecher sites are a cancer to scanlation and is one of the biggest problems facing scanlation groups. Use Batoto, the scanlator's website and if it's a Pokémon manga, this site.
It's actually chapter 1-7 and 69-71 and all of these chapters have been available in the original quality through the Pokémon RéBURST section of this site for at least half a year, probably more.
Also, Pokémon Special steals a good chunk of the target audience, the people who only read Pokémon Special and never give other Pokémon manga a chance. And since Pokémon Special is the most popular and profitable Pokémon manga publishers focus on publishing it (and a movie manga every now and then).
Actually, I got a cleaner and a translator for the two ORAS oneshots, but the cleaner hasn't contacted me in seven months, so it's not looking that great. Five chapters from How I Became a Pokémon Card were scanlated by Ketsuban back in 2004 or 2006 (can't remember which) and those scanlations are available on this site.
As for RéBURST scanlations: Chapter 1-7 were done by U-Prod Scanlations. The group closed down and split up into two separate groups in the fall of 2012. If I remember correctly it was due to the project manager going MIA (missing in action). A group called Pokemon-Originals then started scanlating the newest chapters (chapter 69-71) since they figured people could read summaries for the chapters in between until they would have time to scanlate those. They used mangazine RAWs for these chapters since these were the only RAWs available at the time. (U-Prod Scanlations on the other hand had used perfect RAWs that were ripped from Club Sunday's website by JB2448). The thing about magazine RAWs is that the paper quality ranges from utter pile of shit to almost as good as tankobon. (The more frequently a magazine is published the worse the quality is: weekly magazines are have shit quality paper while monthly magazines are usually good quality-wise. CoroCoro Comic for example is a weekly junk magazine with shit paper quality). Unfortunately the paper quality in the magazine where RéBURST was published was really shit (the paper is even coloured red since the publisher wanted to save money by recycling old printed paper and adding red dye to the paper mix). This is fixable by an experienced cleaner via Photoshop, but it is a very time consuming task. So, after those three chapters Pokemon-Originals put RéBURST on hiatus and Pokemon-Originals then merged with a fansubbing group called The Moonlighters. Then The Moonlighters, I and JB2448 released Pokémon Zensho chapter 0 and after that Pokémon manga projects have been on a sort of semi-hiatus.
