If it is Satoshi's Butterfree, hopefully its appearance will end all of the "ZOMG Butterfree actually died in the Japanese version!!!!!" stuff.
And those kids can be excited by seeing a Butterfree and have no care in the world about the context that the people who do know about the older episodes have.
What says that doesn't happen as well? If Ash is going to spend a decent amount of time in Kanto (seemingly on his own) then there could be several episodes dealing with plots like that.I don't see the big deal, I think Pidgeot returning would have been better.
I just find it bizarre given there's no Kanto remake coming.
What they should be doing is giving Ash's Gible and other Sinnoh pokes a brief return like how his old team gets shown in the next.
So? The only reason Brock made that scarf was so that Butterfree would have an easier time attracting the pink Butterfree. The scarf has served its purpose.This is not Ash's Butterfree. There is no yellow scarf.
