    I appreciate the irony of the situation; Ash found and caught 30 Tauros easily in the anime while in the games, they're some of the rarest and hardest Pokemon to catch.

    Anyway, after watching this episode again, I gotta say that it was just as amazing as I remembered it. I especially loved the Team Rocket scenes; James's parachute was interesting and clever even if it didn't work as well as he had hoped lol. I also liked that Jessie tried to flirt with the Safari Zone warden and I noticed that she was dressed in ganguro fashion again. I also noticed that Ash spoke to Staryu telepathically, which I found strange. Anyway, I thought the episode was great. Classic Kanto.

    I loved this episode. I saw it for the first time only a few years ago and even though I prefer the dub, it's one of my favourites. Dragon Valley is incredibly beautiful, I love the colour scheme and landscape. The part where the Warden realises that his friend has evolved and had children always brings me to tears, it's so beautiful! That and Dragonair is one of my all time favourite pokemon.

    It's a shame that this episode is banned, but I can see why this is banned, Kaiser pointing a gun at Ash is one of the reason, but guns were pointed at Ash in the Squirtle squade episode too.

    But scenes like Mewoth putting hitler mustaches, Kaiser firing gun at Team Rocket is a good reason for 4kids to ban this episode.

    But still, this violent episode is important because in this episode, Ash caugth 30
    Tauros. So the banning of this episode left a plot-hole in the english version of the Kanto saga episodes.

    This episode is one of my favorites and one of the most hilarious episodes imo. I also thought it had some beautiful moments with Dragonair near the end as well.
    10/10

    I liked the Safari Zone warden and his guns lol. Ash catching 30 Tauros was lame though but Dragonair saving Ash from drowning was kind of cool.

    Wow I wish this episode had aired in English cuz it was great. I liked Meowth's interrogation scene with the old warden guy and I liked how Ash kept accidentally catching Tauros in the Safari zone.

    That gag went too far though and I still don't get why Brock didn't keep the Tauros that he caught...

    I think it was due to the fact that he used Ash's Safari ball and not his own.

    Meh I guess. Too bad Ash still got stuck with 30 of the same species.

    Yea that's what I meant ha ha. Either way it was kind of clear that that one Tauros joined Ash's herd and was part of the thirty. ^^

    This was a good episode so it's a shame it was banned. The warden was a cool old dude and the Tauros gag parts were enjoyable. 7/10

    The Dragonair saving Ash scene was my favorite moment here. The Safari Zone itself looked just like I imagined it would.

    4Kids didn't ban the episode. One of the voice actors said that the Dratini and Porygon episodes DID get dubbed, but didn't get broadcasted for different reasons:

    1. The networks wouldn't let them air the Dratini episode because of the violence.
    2. Nintendo wouldn't let them air the Porygon episode because of the seizure scenes...despite the fact that the dub edited those scenes to slow the framerate.

    What is your source for the claim that the Dratini episode got dubbed?

    Satoshi accidentally capturing thirty Kentauros in the Safari Zone was such a bleak comedic gag since he only needed one. I liked Kaiser, however. His tough guy exterior was fun to witness, like when he took out his pistol and shot at the Rocket-dan, but we also saw his vulnerable side with Miniryuu/Hakuryuu.

    Another piece of proof that Team Rocket is invincible: they got shot at and still didn't die lol. I was really touched when the warden found his old Dratini as a Dragonair, I thought that was so sweet.

    Good episode. I liked the part when Dragonair saved Ash. Kaiser realizing that Dratini has evolved and has a child is also moving. I felt sorry for him when he was tickled by TRio's mecha. I only disliked him pointing a gun at Ash repeatedly.

    It was simply a comic relief gag, though. It's not as if Kaiser would've shot Ash. :x

    I wish this wasn't banned; it was a beautiful episode overall and we got to see an elegant Dragonair. I also liked the nice moment once Kaiser was reunited with it.

    I still can't process why this was banned in the States just due to guns, when the Squirtle episode had guns as well and was shown.

    This episode was more filled with them. The network told 4Kids to not even try to dub this one per Eric Stuart, because American restrictions on such things are there to prevent it. 4Kids did use it for the Poké Rap though. I don't even think he was prompted to mention the guns issue so that's obvious that he wasn't misremembering - they legit never dubbed this one, and clips of it were shown in the rap song.

    Odd that the writers didn't involve the Safari Zone warden's missing teeth from the games here. That could've been such a fun plot device.

    I didn't think the warden's guns were a big deal and I bet if 4Kids hadn't been lazy they could've edited all the gun scenes. Sucks how we didn't get to see Dratini in Kanto in the U.S.

    Technically speaking, the English fandom did see Miniryuu and even Hakuryuu during Kanto in the PokeRap music video, which contained scenes from this banned episode.
