Well if there were any doubts about an upcoming contest with Jynx in it. Well on the WB there was a clip of upcoming battles and one clip included Jynx attacking. Although it was kinda obvious to some(including me) that they wouldnt ban it or edit it. Some people were still skeptical so here's evidence.

They changed Jinx to purple, they won't ban the episode.

And it's a contest episode. It's very important, they won't ban it.

And to all those who say "omg da safiri z0ne episode!?!" Catching 50 tauros isn't as important as winning a contest or competing in one for may.

Uh..the capturing of those Kentaros IS important. Otherwise everyone's left wondering where the hell Satoshi got one to help him in all of those battles he's fought in, especially the major ones. o_O

You know, I could've sworn they put Jynx in a contest episode to force the dub to watch it. If so, it worked because to get rid of Jynx, they'd have to get rid of the contest, and that would mess a lot of things up. (Also, they'd have to cut out Toshiki and Eriko's appearances in the Grand Festival later on, not to mention the Hot Battles in Hoenn scene from this contest.)

Fans thought we'd be getting the Barbroach and Whiscash episode in the US, since there's no reason to ban an episode about earthquakes over here. They were wrong.

Fans were afraid that Harley would get a sex change and lose all his personality quirks that fans love. They were wrong.

Fans were afraid that the Contest episodes featuring Jynx in them would be banned because it features a pokemon whose gotten an episode banned in the past. Looks like they're wrong too.

I hope all the people spreading that crap about how PUSA is suddenly dubbing Pokemon after Season 8 and that the show will be getting all-new voice actors will realize that Pokemon fans have a lousy track record for predicting these kinds of things.

What I don't get is, why didn't they just edit the older Jynx episodes by recoloring the Jynxes? 4Kids has plenty of experience with paint edits from removing all semblance of Japanese text from everything they dub, blood from the shows that have it, etc. I'm sure they could pull it off.

Plenty of experience? They fingerpaint.
Anyways, i'm glad Rougela will make an appearance in an episode.

Changing almost every screen would take a looooong time. It would take less effort to just skip the episode. And it wasn't 4Kids being stupid, they were afraid of lawsuits which could happen if black Jynx was shown again. It was a Johto filler anyway.

Well, I think most people know now that the episode isn't banned, but maybe for some people here this thread will benefit them.

Also, "The Cave of Ice" was made before the show switched over to digital animation, so any attempts to recolor the character would look absolutely shitty.

If those soccer moms complain about Jynx showing up, forget them. Jynx didn't even look like a black woman. Jynx just had a pure void-black skin, and I don't even think that her hair was real hair(Jynx vanishes and the hair remains in Pokemon Stadium 1&2.) Seriously, if the soccer moms complain, 4Kids should just forget them and make Jynx black again.

Let's just hope the soccer moms don't notice Gardevoir. If they do, 4Kids will have another problem on their hands.

Well, Gardevoir's "dress" is open all the way up to its body and the "dress" has about eight or so areas like that. They might think that Gardevoir is stereotyping women, or is some sort of hooker. Then they might go off saying that Pokemon is sexist and racist, seeing as how they think Jynx is supposed to be a black woman and they might think Gardevoir is supposed to be a white woman.

Basically, problems all around.

People will ALWAYS have things to complain about. Oh, gosh, lets not hope they find out about Banette. It is black, and it looks slightly like a human. What would the kids think?

Pokemon isn't a fad anymore, nobody will care.

Likewise if someone had a problem with Gardevoir then I'd like to see how Machamp got by all these years. That thing is wearing a speedo!

Y'know, this reminds me of the time when a select few were prancing about the animé section stating that it was plausible for the Castform episode to be banned due to Castform's thingiemeboobs. And because Brody made such a dashing cross-dresser.
Oh man, paranoia sure does rock.

Well, it may be a load of bullplop, but that's a lot better than my attempts to explain why it's been shafted so vigorothly

Then they'd have a problem with Gorebyss. Oh no, look what them shells are covering up! [sarcasm]

Meh. Gorebyss is still a fish, so they might just think it's cute at most. Gardevoir, however, looks very much like a woman, and if the soccer moms did a search for it...well, the results would be what's not allowed in the fanart section here.

I don't watch the show anymore, so could anyone explain what the opening looks like to me?
