So, anyone who's seen the original episode and has damn good translation skills, could you please tell me exactly, repeat, EXACTLY, how the line went?
    Butterfree died?! Waahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!! I feel sorry for him!!! No wonder he didn't come back! I never knew about that until just now!! I've only watched the English Version. Even though I'm a girl who likes some what sad endings a Poke`mon dieing is a little to much for me. I liked the little song that played when Butterfree was leaving with his girlfriend. I play it over and over when I get the chance! Poor Butterfree..... he died........

    No he didn't, that was a gross mistranslation. Just ask Murgatroyd - he went through the Japanese episode with a fine-toothed comb and nowhere did he find any line referring to Butterfree's death.

    That was not the saddest episode "Pikachu's Goodbye" was but ya the was pretty sad. I was little then and loved pokemon almost more than anything so when I saw that I almost had a mental breakdown.
    If you remember the days of the Advanced Gen on Netbattle and remember Battle Mountain hit me up.

    This episode was cool, yet very sad. Seeing Butterfree leave was almost depressing.

    This was the first episode I ever saw! Its so sad, I cry whenever I see it!!! Not only funny but the bit when Ash watches Buterfree leave from off that cliff is probably one of the most dramatic parts of Season 1!!!

    The tears were really flowing when I watched the final part of the episode, with the Butterfree montage. It wasn't so much knowing that the original Japanese episode said that Butterfree died, it was because the montage to him was so sweet. I like that he got to have such a sweet farewell.

    Also, I love the part where Brock tried to convince Butterfree to go for one girl's butterfree, and the twerp motto. Man, we're ***LONG*** overdue for another twerp motto (since season three).

    This was a sad episode, I hate Ash when he releases one of his Pokémon. Butterfree can't be death, he is young.

    Nothing ever proved that Butterfree was young...

    Also, I don't really think there is much chance of him battling, as stated earlier, the japanese made it so in the monologue that it die or whatever, and it would have been six years or what not.


    Edit-Just realised, that was wrong about them saying that he died in the japanese version >.>

    Meh, 6 or what years still.

    I loved bits and hated bits of this episode. It was sooooo sad when Butterfree went I nearly cried. Butterfree should have stayed because he was the absolute best Pokemon Ash has ever owned or will ever own. But I don't think they should bring Butterfree back, it would just spark a load of arguments and everyone would forget this beautiful episode.

    Ash caught it as a Caterpie. That's a strong hint that it was young.

    You know, when I first watched this episode. I hadn't seen the Viridian Forest bits. So I thought the flashbacks at the end were Ash catching and evolving another one. I was so like "Wow, that kinda removes the whole sentimentality associated with this."

    Heh, I was a silly child.

    Oh i loved this episode too... I cried all the way through the flashbacks, yet at the same time I laughed and smiled at it. I especially liked the part were it evolved into butterfree (in the flash backs) and the theme song started, a true landmark in pokemon history.

    Ash ditches a few in Kanto, but afterward the only Pokémon he releases are ones that weren't really his.
