There’ve been over a thousand episodes of the Pokémon anime since its premiere in 1997. In that point, a number of episodes (eight, in accordance with Wikipedia) have been pulled for varied causes, like giving children seizures or a frequent use of firearms. Different occasions, an episode has been pulled for having occasions be just like up to date disasters like Hurricane Katrina or 9/11.

Following 2011’s earthquake and tsunami within the Tōhoku area of Japan, the anime’s “Workforce Rocket vs. Workforce Plasma!” two-parter (from the Pokémon Black & White season) was pulled from rotation. At first, the episodes had been postponed as a result of large-scale occasion, then it was postponed solely as a result of town of Castelia would’ve been destroyed in the course of the quick arc. However not too long ago, a member of the Bulbagarden community discovered somebody bought the scripts to these episodes in 2013. After the Pokémon group raised $,4000 to purchase the scripts, the proprietor elected to simply share the scripts free of charge, which has since been compiled right into a single Google Drive folder for all to see.

“The historical past has been made as we speak,” wrote Bulbagarden member Akilvers on Twitter. “Large thanks to everybody who believed in it and supported it! It got here nearer to actuality due to everybody’s assist and the noise that was made collectively. This contribution to the historical past of the Pokémon anime is really invaluable.”

Within the Drive folder housing scripts for the “Workforce Rocket vs. Workforce Plasma” arc, round 100 whole images had been taken of the Japanese script. (Episode 23 involves 48 pages, whereas episode 24 reaches 51.) The episodes had been then translated to English in a single 37-page document that’s heavy on dialogue and comprises some minimal descriptions of what’s happening within the scene. There’s not a lot to be gleaned from it in any other case, as scenes from this arc had been later repurposed for 2 separate episodes in late 2012. However their existence is a win for historians of Pokémon and video video games, and one other attention-grabbing footnote in Nintendo’s long-running collection.
