Been like this in Japan since it never aired. The earthquakes had it never air, so I assume that they didn't give the episode to 4Kids either.

Some of the reasons they ban episodes is stupid. THEY WERE MADE BEFORE THE EVENT! GET OVER IT!

The Ice Cave I was annoyed about but understand. But this is just stupid. Next they'll ban an episode that features a huge storm because of the tsunamis. >>

Actually, the episode was ceased from airing in Japan initially. So it never aired in Japan.

I kinda knew it was going to be banned or temporatary but I was hoping that it was going to shown eventullay but they may not. The reason why they don't show it my be stupid but the show producers don't want to open up old wounds with some of their viewers. I wish I can see the pictures but since they never sired it Serebii.net doesn't have them so there must have been something in the eps that had something (BIG) to do with the earthquakes at the time. Then if you were a parent or kid watching to show and you saw that then you my be emotional hurt by seeing that since they lived throught that. Then they get mad and we have another Porygon/Jynx thing again.

It all about safty of themselves

Why they baning it in US is simple. They skip it in Japan so they skip it here. Anyways I don't think anything that big happen in the eps or they would have try to show it a month or two afterwards. Then a little of the above too.

This is the first Advance eps they have banned. I thougth they will now banned any epsin the Advance Gen but I was prove wrong. Kinda stupid thougth why but umm. The company, both Japan and 4Kids, don't want to get in trouble.
