    Not too bad of an episode, not that I almost cried or anything...

    But if you're not going to make the actual Butterfree appear, could you at least have given him a minute more of flashback screen time?

    This episode just didn't do it for me. Satoshi crying at the end was unncessary, Rocket-Dans blast off stockart repeated for the millionth time and oh was Caterpie poorly drawn.

    I enjoyed Rotom and Okido-Hakase appearances though.

    I feel so bad for that Butterfree. Someone should let it know what happened to the last Butterfree that Ash promised he'd meet again (not to mention all the others).

    Otherwise it was a decent episode - Caterpie is such a cute Pokemon. The flashbacks to his old Butterfree could've been longer, but it was still nice to see redrawn scenes again. The thing that annoyed me most was seeing an angry Ursaring - writers tend to forget that there are Pokemon other than Ursaring and Scolipede that can get angry! :P

    I LOVE THIS EPISODE LOVE. Omg....Satoshi is just....perfect, what a baby, he was amazing in this episode. I liked how he didn't force caterpie to do anything that was too much for him and worked WITH his style instead of against it. He even took a nap with it to show him that it wasn't necessarily a bad thing that he did it, he just had to do it in moderation. That's my boy :')

    Anyways, before I delve further in, I'm just going to share an interesting observation that someone on tumblr pointed out (credit here).

    So uh, apparently since gen iv, they've been doing a pretty good job at showing sex differences between pokemon - even in flashbacks.

    here's a male butterfree:
    now here's a female:

    now here is ash's butterfree and his lover in the flashback:



    Ash's butterfree confirmed gay. :)

    (no wonder they didn't make any babies)

    (don't mention animation error LET ME BE HAPPY FOR ONCE OKAY???)

    If you're referring to dying after mating, don't worry, that was a translation error that has persisted as a popular misconception.

    So! Butterfrees do not die immediately after mating, don't worry! That's why Satoshi/Ash's Butterfree was shown flying in the Spurt opening back in late AG (Battle Frontier). ^^

    He's referring to how Ash rarely sees released Pokemon again.

    It's funny how Ash can evolve a wild caterpie twice in one episode, but it takes him 75 for Tepig and has yet to evolve snivy in over 100.

    This looked like such a cute episode and it went almost exactly like I imagined it would. That Caterpie was just so adorable and cubby looking:) The main problems I had were the original Butterfee not getting longer flashbacks, Team Rocket being here, and Ash scanning Caterpie's forms. I also found Ash being that sad a bit much since he only knew that Caterpie for a day as opposed to other Pokémon he released where he didn't even cry. But it was still a nice episode. 7/10.

    After Caterpie evolves into Trancell, our heroes find out from Joi that the next group of Butterfree will be coming by in a week. So they were on that island for at least that long.

    Oh, it was a week? Okay then. But still it was rather short as opposed to other Pokémon he'd traveled with longer.

    Well, Dent does mention that Caterpie tend to evolve quickly and assured him that he still had plenty of time left.

    After rewatching the episode, I realised the scene where Kojiro's Morobareru kept bouncing on Satoshi's head made me laugh, because it looked ridiculously hillarious.
