Red chapters aren't scanlated yet unless I missed something out recently. You won't find them anywhere. 262 is the chapter of week 22, the one that will be published in the current Jump issue (week 25) is chapter 265.
But jumping over the missing chapters in no problem. The arcs are episodic and according to fans who read it in Japanese, there's nothing critical one would miss out.
You should find all scanlated chapters up till current here:
@Bomber D Rufi
Have you read the whole series including the not scanlated chapter? Could you eventually say what the gaps are - (longer) single arcs or several small episodes that were uninteresting to scanlate? There are small and big gaps, makes me wonder why scanlators skipped those chapters in particular *scratches head*

168, 170 and 171 can be found at mangafox.com unless they got the numbering wrong. Also could you please tell me where you found the pilot oneshot?
Hm, I can't find ch168-171 and Mangafox is down for me at the moment.
The oneshot is the last story in volume 2 (Kuro Shiro: Black & White) scanlated by Yanime.
The nice thing is that Rumbel Subs has already subbed everything in the anime up to the part where the manga started being done consistantly (187+).
It's also worth noting that a bunch of the missing chapters are translated but were just never scanlated. I think so, anyway... Course most were done by no-name groups, Just some guy who did one chapter and posted it using livejournal attachments, so they're not on MH. You can find them on mangatranders, I think. But really, someone should try to fill in all the gaps. I dunno what Maximum 7's doing with Gintama right now, they haven't said anything except "still working on it" since like a year ago when they finished volume 8.
Only thing is, I really don't think Bomber should be doing this thing with Binktopia being the only one allowed to use his TLs. They're pretty well known for doing a good job, but then being inconsistant. Like how they haven't released anything for Gintama in 3 weeks and all...

So, they pretty much skipped on stuff I would like >.>
<--- is no friend of long arcs either.
Hmm, I saw now that Mangafox has ch168-171 but I haven't read a bunch of the chapters in the middle, so I can't confirm whether that's the supposed chapters or whether they're wrong numbered. Anyone?
And yes, Gintama is text heavy but I don't expect anyone to speed-work on the missing chapters or to release super high quality cleans. But I think with a one month focus on this series, a scanlator could easily fill some of the short arcs in.Yet the gasps are there since years and sadly a reason for many to not start the series at all. I'm also a little afraid that, looking at the English official release, they'll never closed ._.
Most gaps are 1-4 chapters long, only three are longer:
3x 3 chapter
3x 4 chapter
1x 1, 2, 8, 12 and 20 chapter
If at least the short ones could be closed within this year, that would already be awesome. They're the ones who gives this cruel 'patchwork' impression to potential readers.

I have no interest in filling the gap mainly because I want to support the English version. (So I do buy the Viz tanks, even though I translate the later ones.) Gintama's a series that's well worth buying. (The other reason is that I have no time to go back and do the older lessons...) I wouldn't be against anyone trying to fill the gap, but I won't be the one who translates those. So to anyone attempting to do it, good luck. I agree that this 'incomplete' image of Gintama gives off a bad impression, (Especially since it seems Onemanga which is really popular, won't upload any more Gintama unless it's in order.) So It would be nice for someone to attempt it.....
Ha, yeah right... no one would be so insane to try and translate chapters of Gintama not even Bomber D. Ruffy could do...
It's gonna be me, isn't it........
But ok, that's certainly what a minority of scanlation readers is doing.
I've seen lots of people filling in the gap slowly with translations....it's just that no one is using these trans for scans. I implore some of the scantlators that I worked with before Bink took over to talk to these translators and use their work. For the most part the gaps are between Volume 6 to 11 and I *THINK* Volume 17 or so to where I started doing it weekly at 187. (Although I did do 174-182 last summer.)
...Besides I'm not even that good of a translator for people to rely on me for anything :-P
I promise I won't do it ever again, thanks Eni =D
Moments like this I'll consider becoming a scanlator.... (feels gazes all around)
But I just suck with Photoshop and am lazy too...
I really like Gintama but I made a pause around 100+ with that eye-patch samurai, coz of the missing chapters... well I guess I will start reading again soon...
is the series ending soon because i read somewhere that it would. i hope not.
^ I hope not.
BTW the coming arc seems promising and epic. I'd like to know more about the massacre Sougo was involved in.
