*In Spoiler Ink for convenience*

Alright, in an episode after the Pacifidlog contest, there is a TR scene with a purple Jynx, is it possible Kids WB will cut this scene out?

Why would they unless it is rude to purple people.

Either sometime in the GF or the Bannai/Ribbon Cup episode.

I can confirm it to be the first GF episode *checked the pics*

And IIRC that ep will air on Saturday and if KWB cuts it out, they'll either have to paint Jynx away, cut out TR's entire Scheme, or give in and show the blasted thing.

I think they'll go for #1 since they have the power over the badge case.

while they're perfectly fine all by themselves, people complaining about them is driving me bonkers!

Those two characters bring up a lot of controversy, people get irritated just thinking about the debates/flaming/character bashing that follows!

At least Ruujura doesn't induce shipping debates. XP

The dub versions? How?

Anyway, since no one is 100% sure why the Pacifidlog episodes were skipped, there's really no way to guess whether Jynx will be shown, purple or not.

Isn't there a Brock/Jynx shipping debate?

Probably, there's a shipping for everything else.

Though I don't follow the dub, I'll still be interested in hearing how Kids' WB handles this. The behind-the-scenes actions of some TV networks can often be ten times as entertaining as their programming.

But Jynx IS purple in these 2 epis!

If you don't believe me, look at the episode pictures in serebii.net !

I think Dogasu has a legitimate reason as to why Kids' WB is being so screwy with the scheduling - this happens to be Black History Month, and airing an episode featuring Rougela during this month, even if she is purple, will probably seem offensive to somebody. Come March, we'll probably be back to normal. Or as normal as we can be with the dub's timeline thrown so far out of whack (of course, that's never stopped them before).

It's also sweeps month, which means that every network is trying to get the best ratings possible. And what's going to get better ratings: a Donphan filler episode and two contest episodes, or the three-part Grand Festival?

Like the kids watching the show will really care? I'm amazed that there are still some kids watching the show out there that aren't even aware that May has a league like Ash does.

Besides, it's not like KidsWb is advertising the Grand Festival. All the same kids who would have watched the Donphan and Contest episodes will be the same exact people watching the GF.

It's not going to make a difference in the ratings at all. Pokemon is on, kids watch. What episodes are airing doesn't really matter.

That's what I was wondering about. Are kids really gonna not watch just because the episode isn't as interesting as normal or whatever? Besides, what's the point of good ratings now anyway?

Regardless, I think KidsWB should have planned ahead for this. Skipping three episodes coulda been avoided.

Well, I already made a thread about trying to get the banned episodes out. Someone I know took the japanese episodes, took the sound out of them, and then added the UK sound on them. They look like regular episodes and everything.

I made a thread about it, without reading the rules first. I immediately shut down the thread. I just thought that since almost all people in america weren't allowed to see them, I'd help out. I can see how it's breaking the rules though.

It's a shame. I love Jynx, I never realized she was banned from America in the first place until this all came up. It shall be interesting to see where they go from here.

But as someone mentioned somewhere apparently WB bought the episodes. Maybe they will play the episode next month as they want to be careful not to tread on dangerous territory.

Argh, I hate sweeps. It's really just annoy-everyone-who-watches-TV month. -_-;

I remember seeing the Jyxn episode twice. Undoubtedly this was before the lawsuit I'm guessing. They showed it once during the Christmas season (first run) and then again when we ended up having Christmas on a Saturday. This had to be a long time ago though...

I only saw it twice. But I do know it was twice because I remember being disappointed that there was no new episode on Christmas, just a repeat of the special I had seen before.

Sorry, what month is February?
Is it a USA thing, or does it happen in other countries too?
What is the history background?
(sorry I don't live in USA, knew nothing about this)

Well, I love Jynx too, but surprisingly I don't feel miserable this time.
Even more surprisingly, I feel more sorry for those who changed her to purple (for all the work done, and did not work...), and the little kids "Why does May have ribbons in this epi and 4 in the previous one?"

I just have a very wierd feeling that what Carole B Weatherford did was a permanent ban or something.

Although I was happy about the anime changing it to purple, I just feel that I don't feel celebrating like other Jynx fans did, because I thought it was still unlikely for the episode to air...

But anyway, we can still watch spoilers! XD
And there's another Jynx episode coming 16th March in Japan!
(The immediate thursday after my birthday, what a present! XD)

They did show the purple Jynx last Saturday!! Maybe KidsWb just forgot to air the episodes, or skipped them, by accident? They should air them after the Grand Festival, if they're going to air them at all. I think they should just put the three episodes on DVD and never air them on TV so it doesn't screw up the dub's order.
