I thought it was permanently banned...

My brother got the "Essential Pokemon Book of Joy" for Easter, a book he wanted a while ago. Most of the images and quotes come from the first three seasons and the XY era, but there's something odd.

The page 76-77 quote is an odd choice; It's a Team Rocket quote (and golden-scaled image) from "The Mandarin Island Miss Match", an episode that has presembly been semi-wiped from extensive since thanks to its inclusion of Jynx. How did the compiler forget that? Odd...

P.S. The original theme (lyrics from the 2BA Master versions are scattered around throughout the book) has "Teach Pokemon to understand" written as "Each Pokemon to understand", which I now presume is the official lyric.

Because it isn't banned, the ep still exists, it's just not put on newer DVD sets. The only eps "banned" is the Porygon ep, the Dratini ep in the U.S., and the eps Japan didn't air like the Barboach filler or the TR/TP eps.

That episode was banned? When I watched the anime in LA Cartoon Network, they aired the episode normally, then again, "The Tower of Terror" and the Tentacruel episode also aired frequently even after 9/11, so...

It was banned around 2014-2015, most likely because of Jynx. It wouldn't be surprising if the decision was made by TPCi (they banned a similar episode mere months ago), but @Dogasu had the theory that it could have been the Japan headquarters so as not to give a racist impression to foreigners because of the upcoming Olympic games.

It's apparently banned in Latin America too, as I recall reading some sources that said that the Jynx episodes weren't uploaded with the rest of Season 2 on Netflix on 2016, but I always forgot to check and nowadays Netflix only has Season 1. Is there a channel in your country that's currently airing Season 2 where you can check?

I don't think so. Cartoon Network was the place where I watched it, which is why I find it weird. Specially since it would be only cartoon affected by something like that here as far as I know, since Tom & Jerry and Dragon Ball were also completely uncensored (well, kinda. We got the censored US version of Kai and nobody took it well).

Canal 4 from Repretel (which is from my country) was another channel that aired the anime. I think they aired every single episode that 4Kids translated, but I think they took it off the air recently. Not even Doblaje Wiki has any info about that.

Unlike with Porygon, I don't think anyone blamed Passimian for that incident. Then again, Porygon was used as a scapegoat when the one that caused the explosions was Pikachu, and we know they can't ban him (no matter how much I want that).

Not really, it was the missile.

Is that simply an assumption, or is Passimian literally banned from future episodes?
As far as I know, assumption. It's too early to know if it was banned or not. Also, isn't there going to air an episode that has Passimian soon?
