It was never confirmed, no. It was just taken out of rotation due to the 9/11 attack. But was put back in rotation a little while after. I don't think the reason is ever going to be confirmed at this point.

To better go into explanation of what Yuki's Sword said, here's what is stated on Bulbapedia on the episode's page:

The episode was temporarily banned because of the title for some odd reason. It has since been put back into circulation when Cartoon Network acquired the rights to air Pokemon in the US. The Tower of Terror is not the only episode to have been temporarily banned as a result of the September 11 attacks, it also happened with Tentacool and Tentacruel, but the reason why that episode was temporarily banned was due to a scene where Tentacruel destroys a building (which is also part of the Season 1 opening).

So I have watched this, what would you call it... movie. A great movie, in fact! But one thing I would like to ask is about the content in this video:



Now I have watched the movie only in English online (for nostalgia reasons), but I have never seen that before. Was it cut from the English version? I've looked around a bit but that's all I think I can figure. Also, if it's only in the Japanese version, can someone give me the link to the ending, because in the video, immediately cut off at the beginning, I see them turning to go down the road (which looks like it did get cut off). Is the music in the video supposed to be there (I figure). I see the part at the very very end of the video, and well, it's really cute :p

Thanks a ton!

If its not in the English one then it was obviously cut to make room for commercials and save time. Most likely there isn't one that exists with the full ending. Its very common thing to happen to imported cartoons, anime, and movies.

It was indeed cut from the English Version. 4kids cuts a lot of things. And sadly, I looked on Youtube but I couldn't find the English ending, I apologize. That is another thing I don't know. I'm pretty sure it's meant to be there because the Pokemon Company does everything with intention.

So, I just watched a review on Pokemon the First Movie and I realized something. Ash has died a good amount of times in the series. Has someone actually made a list of all his deaths/near-death experiences he's faced? And if so, where can I find it?

I have been watching the first 3 seasons for a while, and finally completed it. Later that day, I saw an episode of Unova on Cartoon Network was on. I went to it because I have never watched anything in this region before. Then I heard ash talk, and it doesn't sound like him from the first few seasons. Does anyone know when they changed voice actors, and how many they have had?

The dub switched voice actors after Season 8, when TPCi started dubbing Pokémon instead of 4Kids. Ash has technically had three voice actors if you count the alternate TPCi one in Mastermind of the Mirage Pokémon [Kayzie Rogers], but for everything else it was just Veronica Taylor and then Sarah Natochenny.

Some of the following main characters' Pokémon from the Pokémon anime TV show, who decided that they wouldn't be able to evolve include:
  • Ash's Pikachu & Bulbasaur
  • Dawn's Piplup
  • Meowth of the Team Rocket
So, does anyone really knows about the reason they refused to evolve? And why does Meowth of the Team Rocket hates Persian?

I dont know why the main characters' pokemon dont want to evolve, but isnt the reason why Meowth hates Persian is because Meowth is jealous? Meowth wants to be the one getting petted and loved by the big boss (Giovanni)? I mean... that's always what I thought at least

Ash's Pikachu won't evolve because that's the mascot of Pokemon. And maybe, just maybe, they want to keep some pokemon cute so kids will still like the show?

Right, well, the out-of-universe explanation for Pikachu is just that he's the mascot and they ain't gonna evolve him. Especially not this long into it. In-universe, though...

Pikachu didn't want to evolve just to beat Lt Surge's Raichu, and now just doesn't want to evolve because he likes being a Pikachu and feels he can do everything a Raichu could just just as well. Piplup didn't want to evolve because he liked the way he is and preferred to stay that way. Same with Bulbasaur. I guess all their reasons are pretty similar.

Meowth is a bit tricky, as his general past is a bit hazy. He might have once been Giovanni's Top Cat, only to be replaced by a Persian. That's pretty debatable, though, as some episodes seem to contradict that story. The other reason would be that he lost the Meowth he loved to a Persian pride leader. That's definitely true, but the Top Cat explanation has been given in-show to explain the hatred. Even if it might not be entirely truthful.

According to an anime book I read some Pokemon don't evolve because they like there current form or personality and don't want to change form. That's what I know, anyway, but I honestly doubt that this is entirely true because each Pokemon has its own reason not to evolve.

Also on the cover of the first movie there was Snubbull, a gen 2 pokemon...

Hello guys, I'm so sorry if this is wrong place to start this thread, but I am really frustrated.
So, here's the thing. There is this soundtrack, when Pikachu is battling Tobias' Latios, I've been looking everywhere, for over 4 hours and can't find it... Anyone can tell me the title? Please, help me
If it's wrong section for this thread, move it, please.
I apologize for my english also.

It doesn't look like they'll be making one anytime soon. It's been four months or so since Gates to Infinity was released in Japan, and the other PMD promo specials were released within about four days of the games.

I'm not sure what they were thinking with Ho-oh, but it did seem to lead Ash into adventure on multiple occasions. Its dex entry from Crystal stated "It will reveal itself before a pure-hearted trainer by shining its bright rainbow-colored wings." So, you know, that fits with Ash being innocent hero and all. And also "It is said that those who see Ho-Oh are promised an eternal happiness." Ash is forever ten and getting to do whatever he wants. Hmmm.

Snubbull, though, appeared in the Pikachu's Vacation short along with Marill. They were there as a preview for Gen II 'mon, rather like how Orange Islands introduced and featured some native to Johto.

Umm well you can check out this page and see if it's listed there- you might be looking for A Battle In Mid-Air. I'm not really sure, man. Pokémon anime BGM seems pretty difficult to find. I'm still trying to figure out what the Koaruhie theme is. :(

Hey guys I just wondered about the story arcs.

Why do you think there are two anime series(es) under the Pokemon franchise?
Quote:

the same universe, in the same places, same villains, yet with different storyline
and to top it off, if you watch both animes there's not a single sign that they
even co-exist. Then there's also the storyline in the games, why don't they include
that? I mean seriously, just what the heck is up? Is that some sort of parallel
universe?


Opinions would be great guys :3

Um... what are you talking about exactly? As far as I know there's only one Pokemon anime series in the form of sagas. I've never heard of a second series where there is a main character named Hiro.
