    I just received some sad news from one of my Japanese friends, who was translating an episode. Apparently, in the Bye-Bye Buterfree episode (the Japanese version), Brock tells Ash that once Butterfree breed, they die. That is why Ash was extra sad in the episode. For the English version, they had to change around the script to make it more dramatic and to mask the fact that it was going to die, since Ash was really crying because he knew he would never see it again.

    I was really hoping it would come back one day, but now we know that it won't since it is dead. :(

    That makes me sad. It brings a tear to my eye when another nonexistent creature continues to not exist.

    Ok, but seriously that kinda puts a damper on the whole thing. Do you know of any other censorships where they have edited out Pokemon who actually died?

    Yeah I knew about it also for a long time. Now, I haven't watched the Pokemon cartoon in a while, and did Primeape ever come back?

    Leave things the way they are.
    I mean, Dying is a part of life (different from drugs and such) and should not be avoided.
    ait's not like showing that would make it TV14.

    Since seeing the episode where the rock falls on him, I have always wondered if Bulbasore didn't die as well.

    Hmmm, it's been ages since I've seen the show, but here's a theory on primeape:

    He was flattened by a rock, sliced into millions of pieces, and put into a factory, where hundreds of thousands of Primeape cards were made ^_^

    ...and Bulba comes back when May gets her own Bulbasaur.

    Knowing that the first Pokemon Ash has ever caught is dead makes me feel empty inside........ I'm going to find a corner to cry in.

    But its not the same Bulba, May's Bulba head pattern resembles hearts on its forehead.

    Ash's Bulba goes back to Oak's at the end of that episode.

    yeah.. i too have known about the butterfree thing for quite a while...

    as for bulbasaur.. i dunno if anyone else noticed but it HAS A PERSONALITY and i think that it would never forgive ash if he tried to make it "go free"....
    (i also noticed that blubasaur and squirtle seemed to be best friends or something XD; )

    Butterfree is my favorite character from the TV show...this totally screws up my fanfic.

    Next Theory: Butterfree's kid finds Ash!

    I read somewhere that the starters have a habit of becoming friends like that. I forget quite where it was. Probably just alluded to in old 'Dex data or something. :lol:

    What's wrong with Pokemon of oposing types getting along? Even Pokemon of rivle trainers can be best friends.

    Charmander and Squirtle in the Anime got along too. In one of the Sabrina eps, they were both playing tag. There have been a ton of other times when all three in different combos were playing with each other.
