Title: Re: BWS2-DA 8: サトシとバタフリー！また会う日まで！！/Satoshi to Butterfree! Ma...
I have seriously mixed feeling about this episode. On one hand it brings back memories and nostalgic feelings. On the other hand it makes Ash do the same thing he has already done in the past, just in a smaller timeframe. Getting friends with a Caterpie (this time without catching it), training it up to Butterfree, then leaving it. Where there would be a great opportunity to reunite, or at least say hello to Satoshi's first ever caught Pokemon, there is just a brief flashback of it and the episode focuses on a completely different Caterpie. One which sleeps through most of the episode anyway.
If it wasn't for the lack of old Butterfree, this would actually be an excellent episode. Even Rocket Gang just played their role as a catalyst here without taking up too much time.
There were some interesting moments and PokéLogic though. A worm and a rat make a totally angry and pissed-off bear run away. Denies any real-world logic.
Once again the same situation: A random wild Ursaring appears in front of Satoshi, who has one hell of a Charizard up his balls and Iris, who has a Dragonite - the highest evolution of the only Dragon-type Pokemon from 1st generation. Instead of just battling the Ursaring like Pokemon trainers, they just run away in panic. Denies any Pokemon game logic.
Could be a chance to see Satoshi's first caught Pokemon, but it is only a reminder of past events with a shadow of nostalgia. Despite that, it is quite a good episode.
I give it 8
