I really don't like that last piece of triva in this article, you know, the one about which Pokemon Ash sent over to Juniper. It sounds too much like speculation to me. Should we remove it? RedLuigi 00:26, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

It's thoroughly thought-out and actually does not say any speculation at all. It leaves all possible options. Also, they are still sent to Professor Oak. MaverickNate 00:53, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

It is easy to figure out. Just look at BW019. It gives a list of Ash's Pokemon that will be in the episode. Figure out based on the one that is not listed. Hope this helps.--Pokemon26 19:19, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

We are waiting until the episode airs. He could have very well recalled one of them to his team during BW019. --ケンジガール 19:22, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Pidove

Yeah it was later revealed that Pidove was the one he sent o Juniper, but it wasn't revealed in this episode so it shouldn't be listed. --HoennMaster 01:13, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Cheren's Music?

Don't Cheren and Bianca share the same battle theme? If that's the case, rival battle theme would sound better down in the trivia section. :--SuperAipom7 (Questions?) 13:48, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

I don't remember the theme used in this episode but Bianca and Cheren have different themes. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 14:00, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
I could of sworn they were the same... :--SuperAipom7 (Questions?) 14:01, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
They used Cheren's theme when introducing Burgh. Blazios 14:03, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
SuperAipom, they have the same battle theme but different non-battle themes, which Ady posted.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 14:07, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Pokemon Transfer

There was a part where when Ash caught Sewaddle, the Poké Ball sealed itself, instead of disappearing and transferring to Professor Oak's lab. However, this might be because Kanto is too far away from the Unova region, which also explains why Ash is having to keep his pokemon with Professor Juniper instead of Professor Oak.dragonaceDragonace 09:12, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

1) You are not supposed to add any trivia (please read the notice at the top). 2) It's speculation. --ケンジガール 09:36, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Full party trivia

The trivia section mentions that it marks the second time that Ash caught a Pokémon with a full party. I looked in The Bug Stops Here article and I saw that Ash caught a Beedrill in the Bug Catching Contest when he had a full party, even though it wasn't sent directly to the PC after the contest when it was supposed to. Wouldn't it be the third time that Ash did so and make the trivia unnotable as it wasn't deemed to be the first? PattyMan 22:32, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

I think the trivia should be removed. Even if we don't count the Beedrill capture, it's still the "second" time that it occurred, making it unnotable in my book. --Pokemaster97 22:37, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
Beedrill wasn't a normal capture, and if there has been a significant time, the trivia can be considered notable. --HoennMaster 04:35, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
I didn't see that revision. Point supposedly taken. PattyMan 04:40, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
The difference between that trivia and this trivia is, Ash has caught nothing but the regional birds in between Heracross and Frogadier. Ash has caught plenty of Water types that either did not evolve or couldn't evolve between Kingler and Frogadier. This is only the second time, and is only the second time because Ash never catches more than five Pokémon in a region prior to BW. Had Ash caught more than a full party but was rotating the party so he doesn't have to face the whole 6 Pokémon rule thing (so depositing one Pokémon to make way for the new catch) between Krabby and Sewaddle, then yeah, it'd be notable.--ForceFire 05:37, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, but I fail to see how such a rare event (twice in 800 episodes) is not notable simply because it is the second time. Something happening twice in a blue moon is far different from capturing multiple Pokémon in each region. --HoennMaster 05:44, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
It only happened twice because Ash never caught more than five Pokémon per region. And whenever he did get a chance, he'd release or give it away *ahem*Primeape*ahem*. The writers had plenty of opportunity to have Ash evolve a Water type/catch a non-bird. The writers never had the opportunity to showcase this event due to them not having a situation to do it.--ForceFire 05:50, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
