The Pokemon anime is pretty well known for it’s number of banned and postponed episodes in its run. Postponed for various reasons, there are multiple episodes that have never seen the light of day anywhere, typically due to timely events near their airing. This time around, we have seen the postponing of another episode without a specific reason given for the delay.
The episode that was scheduled to air this week in Japan titled “The Castle on the Seabed! Skrelp & Dragalge!!” was said to be about Ash and friends exploring a sunken ship and city. While no specific reason was given, the postponement is likely due to the recent South Korean ferry tragedy that has been in the news. With this episode not sounding too similar, perhaps we will eventually see it aired later unlike many in the past. In it’s place, we will instead get “The Cyllage Gym Match! Pikachu VS Tyrunt!!” this week in Japan.
