    We don't need them, but they'd be nice, you know, since the kids watching the series might want to know what's up with that random butterfree that Ash is all emotional over.
    But Butterfree's story isn't as extensive as Charizard's anyways, so all we really need to know is that he was Ash's first captured pokemon and had to leave for ~luuve~ As a character, Butterfree wasn't even that interesting, but it's what he means for Ash...I'm still attached to my first caught pokemon (a bidoof that evolved into a bibarel...I can't get rid of her ;_;)

    I just hope there are no extensive flashbacks to avoid a repeat of the overreaction of two certain characters in the Charizard ones.

    In DP they showed two flashbacks to Butterfree and Misty/Brock weren't in them, maybe the same will happen.

    I think you should be more worried about how Clair and Butterfree coming back affects your theory that the writers don't want to bring back older characters.

    I find this bizarre and I guess Dogasu was right, its gimmicks to get people to watch since BW has been a poorly received arc.

    I just hope this means the show is coming full circle with a Giovanni conclusion and an Indigo league tournament.

    I don't know why anyone would be against any old Pokemon making reappearances. Makes them seem less like disposable advertising tools and actually gives the show some damn emotion. Especially for Satoshi. And on the note of "familiarity", if I can show my seven-year-old sister old episodes from the original series that she can enjoy, then it's pretty damn possible for the people in Japan to do it too. Children are fascinated by the cute and cool creatures in Pocket Monsters, not the fact that they're new, familiar, or whatnot. New Pokemon are introduced every few years - if they haven't seen old Pokemon before, they'll treat them as new and won't hate them any less for it. Even then, there's reruns and Kanto episodes included in the Best Wishes set.

    Anyhow, I loved Satoshi's Butterfree and I love the fact that they're going to do a return episode. It's about time they did that. Now I'm waiting for a Okorizaru and Pigeot reurn.

    I hope they won't pull another Charizard, and Butterfree makes only one-shot instead of entering the regular team...
    Then Unova Team will be too filled with all these old reserves...

    Butterfree will likely be a one episode deal like how Lapras reappeared in Johto.

    I love how everyone forgets that Ash saw Lapras again too.

    So? We know its Ash's Butterfree, just like Ash's Charizard was shown the same way.

    What's the big deal? Ash brought up Butterfree in DP and nobody seemed to care.

    It really doesn't look like that's an ordinary Butterfree going by the scan since Ash seems so emotional there. But ahdhhgha I am so excited to see what this is about exactly... already getting nostalgia vibes.

    Bye Bye Butterfree was a pretty emotional thing to watch during your childhood. It's right in the feels, but is also like a crack dose of nostalgia all in one.

    Ash's Charizard has appeared at least once every season, Ash's Butterfree hasn't appeared in over 750 episodes. Pretty big deal.

    Personally I would have rathered Pidgeot return given Butterfree's ending was closure, but Pidgeot was open ended.

    I find it odd that we have more Kanto references now than in the Battle Frontier saga when we were IN Kanto.

    If Butterfree was actually interesting you could make an episode out of this.

    Guessing its babies need saving?
