    I didn't see the episode until a few years ago and the only reason why I watched the episode was because of the reason why it's infamous: James' fake boobs. And to be honest that's really the only entertaining part. I don't mind that this episode was banned from the dub.

    I liked the Japanese version of this episode more than the dub cuz of the scenes that were uncut. The beach scenes were fun to watch and seeing Gary, Oak and Ash's mom again was great too. Brutella was ugly however.

    This is one of the only episodes where I'd prefer the original Japanese version, since after all, they do have the scenes that were cut from the dub as they were deemed inappropriate. I also feel the English dub was lazy, I mean they didn't translate the Japanese text. I get it for the Pokédex entries in Pocket Monsters: The Origin because that would take ages and nobody has the will to spend the time it takes to translate it, but I remember they usually translated the text. How would you go to a beauty contest with every sign in Japanese, but still be able to understand it just speaking English? It doesn't make sense, but this is just a cartoon, so what would you expect? Unless they were in a rush to get the long-since-skipped Sekiei League episode dubbed into English so people in the US can just see it already to where they weren't even willing to translate the text.

    Ahh the infamous "lost" dub episode. I liked the original version with James's inflatable breasts and the old guy's creepy line to Misty lmao.

    I think he was originally making a remark about her age and implying that he'd like to date her if she was older right? ^^; That's what I read.

    Well I guess 4Kids really had their hands full with editing in this episode, which could explain why it took so long for the dubbed version to finally air in the Orange Islands arc. ^^

    I didn't like how butchered 4Kids made this episode's dub. The James breast scene made sense to delete but the rest of the episode seemed too choppy also. 6/10

    Good banned episode: I only saw this one once when I was 8, but the best moment was definitely seeing Ash's mother + Professor Oak again.

    The Kojirou inflated breast scene seems like it's what most viewers remember from the original Japanese version of this episode, but for me watching Satoshi's friends and him hanging out and just having fun at the beach like real kids was enough of a good time.

    So if the message of Serena wanting to end up with a guy she likes is a bad message, shouldn't this be a worse message to girls since it's saying to treat their bodies like objects and basically promoting prostitution? Talk about double standards of the fanbase just because she's Misty and this is the OS.
    Anyways this episode is bad imo no wonder why it was banned.
    0/10
    Apparently Serena sucks, smh -_-

    How did this episode promote prostitution? All we saw was a few girls (and Kojirou) in bikinis. By this logic, every episode of the anime featuring girls in swimsuits is bad.

    Lol, I laughed when Misty hit Ash with her beach ball. I also liked seeing Ash and friends crash that boat and I liked seeing Professor Oak, Delia, and Gary at the beach competition in the episode's second half. I especially enjoyed Brutella's interactions with Team Rocket.~
