Talk:Ash's Butterfree - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia
BW - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia what happened to the last Butterfree that Ash promised he'd meet again. For the character of the day in Curbing the Crimson Tide, see Hiroshi (AG). The two were unable to catch up to Team Rocket and camped out until the next day. Ritchie met up with Ash and friends again when they were in the Whirl . lot of the same Pokémon (referring to their Pikachu, Charmeleon, and Butterfree). As they suck up Poké Balls with vacuum-like devices, the Trainers fight back; their for the luxury liner, Jessie and James head to a nearby lighthouse to meet up with Meowth. The Gentleman comes up to Ash and commends his Butterfree. as some areas ran the annual Labor Day Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon instead.
After failing to wrestle it out of the Quagsire's mouth, Squirtle used Water Gun, causing the GS Ball it slips out of Quagsire's mouth, and allowing Pikachu to catch it on the shore. As luck would have it, one of the teams was the Squirtle Squad, but they were confused without their leader. Ash's Squirtle led the Squirtle Squad to win the Grand Prix, and at the end of the episode Squirtle returned to the Squirtle Squad because Ash felt that the old gang needed Squirtle more than he did.
It said goodbye to its friends and Bulbasaur extended a vine to its long-time friend, shaking solemnly. It returned briefly to battle in the Silver Conference after Kingler was badly injured by a group of renegade Voltorb. However, Squirtle proved much faster and managed to hit Electabuzz with a series of Water Guns before it could launch any Electric-type moves.

A Skull Bash was enough to knock out Electabuzz and even up the match for Ash, leaving just Quilava left. Squirtle used an explosion of moves to cover a stealthy Water Gun, but was hit and knocked on its back by Quilava. As Macy went in for the knockout, Squirtle used Hydro Pump to hit Quilava with water and its own body, sealing the victory for Ash.
Squirtle and two other members of the Squirtle Squad ambushed Smoochum and attacked her with a Water Gun, sending her flying. It expressed happiness in seeing Pikachu and Bulbasaur again and departed with the two, Ash, and Charizard for the woods.

Though tension between the group began to erupt, they settled their differences and sat as Ash recalled his meetings with the four of them. After Pikachu was captured by Team Rocket, Squirtle participated in saving his teammate. In Pace - The Final Frontier! Squirtle managed to escape Sandstorm with Hydro Pump, but became blinded by Sand Attackleaving it exposed to Ninjask's attacks.
While the next Hydro Pump missed, the water was able to clear Squirtle's eyes. Squirtle then swiftly unleashed Skull Bash, knocking Ninjask out of the battle. Squirtle was then matched up against Brandon's Solrock. Although Ash's hat has a unique symbol in this movie, the symbol that appeared on the original hat can be seen on Ash's backpack. Movies four through seven were skipped, however, presumably because they are owned by Miramax. As a modern adaptation of the original series, the movie integrates a few details from the newer games: Pink Butterfree's oval scales on its lower wings are colored black in this movie, confirming its gender to be female.

This is unlike how it appears in the main series, where it has the same wing pattern as a male Butterfree due to it appearing before gender differences were introduced. This is a contrast to her main series counterpart, who has blue hair and a plain dress. Team Rocket's appearance in the credits is identical to their appearance in the previous movie 's credits: After Ash's death, his hat briefly falls on Pikachu's head.
Differences from the main series With this film taking place in an alternate timeline, there are many differences between events that happen in the main series and in the movie. Cross is Charmander 's original Trainer instead of Damian.
Brock and Misty do not accompany Ash on his journey, as they make no appearance except in cameos during the film's ending credits. Pikachu knows Iron Taila move he doesn't learn until the Advanced Generation series.
Charizard knows Slasha move he doesn't learn until the Best Wishes series. As a Charmeleon, it was able to use Seismic Tossa move it didn't learn until evolving into a Charizard. Butterfree knows Gusta move he doesn't learn at all in the main anime. In the beginning of the film, Ash Ketchum is watching a battle between Neesha and Corey on TV instead of the two unidentified Trainers from the first episode.
Ash is watching the battle in his whole outfit in the original episode, but in the movie, he is just wearing his T-shirt and pants without his hat, jacket, or gloves. The background of the poster is slightly different as well. Unlike in the first episode, where Ash's alarm clock falls into his hands while he is asleep, Ash grabs the alarm clock in his sleep. Delia wakes Ash up instead of Ash waking up himself. Ash runs to Professor Oak's Laboratory barefoot with his pajamas, unlike the original episode where he is wearing shoes with his pajamas.
Ash finds Professor Oak watering Bellsprout and Oddish outside the lab.
In the first episode, Oak was the one to find Ash after his brief encounter with Gary. Gary has no interactions with Ash in the movie and only makes a brief cameo in a flashback, in which he receives his Squirtle. His cheerleaders don't make an appearance in the film either, nor do his crowd of supporters.
Instead, they were displayed on a tray with beds and bowls for each of the starters before the new Trainers picked them out. Notably, Tierno is shown in different clothing than his usual design and chooses Charmander instead of Squirtle.
A map of the JohtoHoennand Unova regions are visible in the background of a couple of scenes at Professor Oak's lab.
Butterfree tried a second time to impress the pink Butterfree with its Whirlwind and Tackle attacks, but this failed as well. Then, Team Rocket showed up in a helicopter and captured all the Butterfree but Ash's in a giant net. Butterfree pursued them, followed by Ash and friends in their hot air balloon, and they headed into a canyon where the Butterfree were stashed.
They broke in and Ash battled Team Rocket while Butterfree used its Tackle against the cage the Butterfree were in, finally getting the attention of the pink Butterfree.
It broke open the cage, and the Butterfree all flew free. Team Rocket tried a second time to capture all the Butterfree, only to be stopped by both Butterfree and Pikachu.
Afterwards, the pink Butterfree approached Ash's Butterfree and the two paired up.
The two departed as Ash watched in tears, remembering what the two had been through together and wishing his dear friend a fond farewell. Other appearances Ash's Butterfree has since appeared in the tenth opening for the anime, Spurt!
However, it has not returned in any episodes since its last appearance. Ash has, however, flashed back to having it several times, such as in The Thief That Keeps on Thieving! Personality and characteristics As a Caterpie, it had a very happy but shy attitude, shown to suffer from low self-esteem if it didn't make a good first impression. He was very hurt when Misty didn't take to it. Its personality mellowed as a Metapod, becoming very laidback, but remained extremely loyal to its Trainer, jumping in front of a Beedrill to save him.
As Butterfree, its personality was similar to that of Caterpie, retaining its bravery and positive attitude, but as was seen in Bye-Bye Butterfree, its self-esteem still suffered when it didn't make a good first impression.
