    The project is ready for work to start. The tools exist, the files are dumped, etc.

    What's missing is translators and editors.

    I have begun working on translating the script files. I have the common_hud almost completely done. Will try to post progress as I go.

    Good luck to everyone involved! Your our only hope it seems, to get this game in English seems Nintendo has no care x.x

    It's still a thing. A thing that is waiting for some interested translators.

    I can't help but wonder why this did not get a official localization. I thought it being Pokemon would be enough to at least warrant one, but if i am not mistaken this is no the first time that happens (pokepark for wii, for example).

    Unfortunately I only know English so I'm not of much help, but I hope to see this project come to fruition.

    Not exactly 0%. (I need to update the OP...)

    I've been busy working on tools, our open source fan translation toolkit, Kuriimu.

    This looks like something that'd be fun to put through Google translate.

    Nice knowing that this game is getting its translation treatment.
    Here's wishing the best of luck to get this finished!

    If translating script was the only hurdle, this would likely be finished earlier.

    I don't have an estimate and we're in the middle of finishing up the tools needed to get the ball rolling faster.

    In any case, stay tuned.

    I was just wondering if there is anyway currently to get the game to work properly(without a black screen) without using HANS.

    Using luma, set language emulation to ON, and then:

    Create 000400000012DE00.txt in SD:\luma\locales\
    The file should contain JPN JP on the first line and that's it.
