Well, CN, Do not air Team Plasma vs. Team Rocket... I see what the Pokemon Did To Destroy Several Buildings in Castelia City. Also, It's boring.

That's episode 18 - Beauty and the Beach. It has been aired as a shortened and censored English dub, but the Japanese version is completely uncensored.

If you are a fan of the Pokémon Adventures manga you're going to love it.
If you haven't read the Pokémon Adventures manga, you should try it and you're probably going to love the video anyway.

To be honest, no. I'd have nothing against the shorts and extra episodes that weren't aired being dubbed, as well as the Team Plasma one, since that is one I personally really want to see, however all the banned episodes should just stay as they were. They were all banned for reasons after all, such as being inappropriate for the age range that the show is being aimed at, or including something that may have been offensive to a range of people, and even if they were edited, they already have a reputation, and as most of them were from the first season, I don't really see how they'd bring them out into the open without starting off from the first season again.

A few of the episodes were banned by the US government so those of us in the US will never see those banned episodes in the US as no place can sell them. Most noted ones are the christmas one with Jynx just cause she's black and the Safari Zone one where the warden pulls a shot gun on Ash.

One Idea would be that they upload them to pokemon.com and that only registered members that are 15, 16 or 18 and over can watch them or that you have to fill in your date of birth before you watch it. Those episodes that are banned in a country can't be viewed by those who have their accounts registered from that country or an IP-adress from that country.

They should probably also do what Otter Mii-kun said:

I don't think that the Jynx episode should be banned. That's just ridiculous.

No its not a real episode at all, although Under the Mistletoe is a song on Pokemon Christmas Bash. If it was real I would have seen it by now as I have something of an obsession with Misty and have been trying to hunt down every single episode or short she has ever been seen in.

In fact I managed to get all the banned episodes. Some are raw Japanese, but mostly subbed, so it doesn't matter. It's hard, very hard to find some. Big prize once you make it!

Some of the episodes are banned for special reasons. "Electric Soldier Porygon" was banned because it caused seizures. "The Legend of Dratini" was banned for the use of guns. "The Ice Cave" was banned for Jynx being mistaking for a black stereotype and was considered racist. "The Beauty and the Beach" was banned after it aired for James' inflatable breast. These are pretty legitimate reasons and I doubt they would release them on TV or maybe even on DVD, especially Electric Soldier Porygon. I wouldn't mine seeing them released and dub in English, but it's very unlikely.
I think they should at least release the episodes banned cause of the earthquakes and they definitely should release the Plasma vs Team Rocket episodes to continue the story.

For the unaired shorts and movies, they should air those, cause there's no real reason for them to not release them.

I agree, we can already watch most of them on the internet, and the target audience (which always has an advantage over us, the older audience) is the reason they were banned in the first place, because it's simply not good for children to watch. I've seen most of them anyways.

BTW +1 internets to you for having a fluttershy avvie.

And also to the OP, you forgot to Mention "Tentacool and Tentacruel" banned because of the September 11th crisis was brought to mind by the pokemon destroying the city.

They also recolored Jynx purple in some of the future episodes.

If you liked the banned episodes about misty, you should check out some of the censored cards, if you haven't already heard about it, Misty's tears. I just recently took interest in banned episodes, cards, and error cards.

None of them should of been banned except for the Porygon one. The rest were just idiotic to ban. It's pokemon how bad can it be? Just cuz theres guns doesn't mean a damn thing. Look at all the movies that are gettin played today. Little kids watch them and they are gang related, sexual related (sometimes), violence, profanity, and explosions and stuff. Pokemon does have any of those. Yet 1 episode has guns but who cares? It's not like the kid watching it is gonna grow up a murder or anything. How thick can their skulls be? How about the Jynx one? So what Jynx has a black face it doesn't have race at all involved in it. They banned them for the wrong reason and runined the series as a whole. Hate on me go ahead but you guys know where I'm comin from. Now what about the one where James has breasts and what not. So? It's funny it's there to make kids laugh not to say homesequality is ok. Once again banned for the stupidest reasons. They way they banned them makes me wonder, why didn't they ban all the episodes where Brock goes all crazy on the women? They didn't cuz it was funny but apparently the people who banned them are too retarded and low lifed to let a little kid watch the program. So yes I want them releases but I know it ain't gonna happen.....

I didn't forget it, I left out Tentacool and Tentacruel and The Tower of Terror by purpose because while they were banned after 9/11 they were brought back once everyone's feelings had cooled down a bit.



Episode 19 - Tentacool & Tentacruel
"After the events of September 11, this episode was taken out of rotation. In the months following the attack, Kids' WB! refused to air it due to the destruction of several buildings (particularly Tentacruel smashing a skyscraper) and the use of machine guns. When Cartoon Network started to air Pokémon, the episode was put back into rotation. It is also on the VHS "Seaside Pikachu" and the Indigo DVD boxset." - Bulbapedia


Episode 23 - The Tower of Terror
This episode was temporarily banned after September 11. The official reason has never been confirmed, but many believe that the episode's title may have had something to do with it. The episode is no longer banned and continues to air.
- Bulbapedia

It is also speculated that it was also banned because of Meowth's Hitlerish moustache:
Spoiler:


Actually there were only revolvers involved as far as I know. I guess you saw the second picture and drew the conclusion that it was a shot gun.
Spoiler:



However there are other Pokémon episodes featuring guns that aren't banned:

If a childrens show episode is banned, there's a reason for it. Remember that Game Freak is a place of business. They aren't going to do something or overlook a potential risk that could hurt sales.

Movies like The Dark Knight Rises? Which is rated PG-13? Exactly, Pokemon is a kids show, with a target demographic as young as preschool kids. Violence, profanity, and sex don't belong in programs for kids.

Also, there have been a few cases where kids DO attempt to do things seen in cartoons such as start fires and play with guns. Kids sometimes don't understand that fiction is fiction, so they don't want kids pointing guns at each other just because it happened to Ash and Pikachu. The earthquake thing is because it was a horrible event that resulted in death and destruction.

That doesn't change what it resembles. It may not have been intended to be racist, but when someone complains about something like that, it could hurt your business not to address it.

No. Only a handful of episodes where banned out of a series of 700+ episodes and over a dozen movies total. The series has not suffered for banning these episodes.

James wore dresses in several episodes of the first season that were not banned so it had nothing to do with that. It's different when he was in a suit that gave him breasts in a bikini posing as a woman in a swimsuit contest. Though, this episode was edited an aired.

Brock flirted with the girls, but to my knowledge, he never did or said anything inappropriate to them, so there was no reason to ban those eps or edit them. Johnny Bravo was far worse.

Don't really care about the Jynx episodes not airing (considering the one is already in English and another one just seem like a filler episode, I did'nt even know anything was missing, until i went online.). And also I started to with mrs weatherford on the issue (even tho she only wrote about PKMN one time).

If the Team Plasma episodes don't air, then I respect that. I mean I imagine myself as a young Japanese kid who prob had a friend that was waiting for the episode, but never got to see it due to them dying the next day. So I can very much understand their feelings. I did wanna see the masquerade scene tho.

And Since the same people who dub the anime in the first season no longer dubs it, I'll just stick with the subs of the banned OS episodes.
------------------
Now some of the side specials and shorts I don't mind being dubbed in English.

I'd have to say yes, I'd like to see the banned episodes in english and un-cut, but at the same time I also kind of don't, and I could just watch it on the internet, just in Japanese. Doesn't really bother me, but what ever, i'd say yes.

Yeah, sure. (:
But they aren't actually allowed to ever air Electric Soldier Porygon anymore. It has a worldwide ban placed on it.

I did get to see the Ice Cave episode at one point, though. I also had a chance to watch the part of Electric Soldier Porygon that caused seizures.

Also that is a pretty good organized list you put together.

Huh, I am actually unfortunately not sure if they ever edited or even removed the more - ahem - "double-edged" scenes from the German or Italian versions of Pokémon, but I did hear about how some things were definitely removed from the English version of it.

Now, as much as I get why they removed what they removed (I went to watch the scenes on YouTube some day), I always find it somewhat dumb when Animes get edited or censored. >.<

I disliked it just as much in Sailor Moon, how they made a big deal out of Haruka x Michiru, so I obviously also didn't like what they did with Pokémon.

I personally feel like this stuff is not up to the "tv" (or the people who review the series), but to the parents. If they don't want their kid to find out about - let's say - transsexual people via a show (Scene with James and the bathing suit), they should just not use the tv as their personal babysitters.

Maybe I am just very old-fashioned about this stuff, I don't know.

Not sure if Electric Soldier Porygon would be safe to release, if it caused seizures anong the Japanese youth :L

It's unfair the way the other Porygon pokes were affected by in though, in not appearing in the anime because of their young Porygon friend.

I'm for the release of all the other episodes though, and I consider myself lucky to have seen some of them.

Most of them should be fine to air. Tv today and back then is very diffrent now. Almost everything has some type of gun shooting at others. I seen a lot of the banned episodes before they were actually banned like the one when Team Rocket catches Santa.

But the Porygon one, I don't think it should be aired. I was watching clips in slow motion from it and it was hurting my eyes. Nothing else has ever done that to me. I was too afraid to watch the part that actually sent 600 kids to the hospital,even though it was like 100 times slower than the normal speed.

I do, specially because then we would get to see some more episodes in Kanto and Johto, which would bring everyone such nice memories. At least for me it would bring my childhood back :D

While I do want them to be released in English, I'd only want the Porygon episode to be edited.
