What About the Koaruhie Episode

Was it right to mainspace this as confirmed? When we haven't got any real confirmation on the episode number. The Koaruhie episode is just popping into my head, and it seems to me more likely to be BW020, since it still takes place in a forest. While the episode with Fushide takes place in Huin City, a very large Skyscraper City. I suppose it's possible that something happens and Arti delays his battle with Ash for a few days or more, but right now that's just speculation. So my main question is why is BW020 the Fushide episode? And I also apologize if I made this page incorrectly. I don't like creating new pages, given my limited knowledge. --Dman dustin 14:16, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Why does everyone assume that's BW020? Because some sketches said so? Did you ever think that maybe they could change their minds? Those pictures came out weeks ago after all.
Here's were it says that this episode will air on February 24th. --ケンジガール 14:20, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
Wasn't the voice actor wrong about when BW018 was airing? I don't know what it was exactly, but the Voice Actor contradicted confirmed information and it had nothing to do with the Koaruhie episode, since that's not yet confirmed information. I think it was BW018, and the wrong time it was airing, but I'm not sure but I do know that the Voice Actor contradicted actual confirmed information. If it wasn't BW018, then it's probably that the Voice Actor called it BW022 and said it was airing the 24th, well first off BW019 airing on the 17th proves that the Dawn and Brock episodes are not considered part of Best Wishes, so regardless of the situation, the Voice Actor contradicted himself in some fashion. Unless the source you linked to has nothing to do with the Voice Actor then okay. But keep in mind that BW022 would've aired on the 24th if there wasn't a Dawn and Brock special and a Naruto break right after. So it's possible that the Voice Actor was not aware of the special and Naruto break. --Dman dustin 14:30, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
I've checked out Toru's website myself. This is what it says:
★【TVアニメ】『ポケットモンスター ベストウィッシュ #22~ヒウンシティ・フシデパニック!』2/24(木)予定19:00-19:30/TV東京/アーティ役
★【TVアニメ】『ポケットモンスター ベストウィッシュ #25~ヒウンジム戦純情ハートの虫ポケモンバトル!』3/17(木)予定19:00-19:30/TV東京/アーティ役
Though it says this episode is BW022, it still says it airs on 2/24. So we can totally throw out this Kaoruhie speculation being BW020 out. BW019 airs on 2/17. So unless they air two more episodes in between 2/17 and 2/24 that we don't know about yet, This episode is indeed BW020. And BW025 is actually BW023.
What I think happened, Toru was counting SS024 and SS025 as Best Wishes episodes. But since he is just a voice actor, we can't rely on his word. Those episodes will stay where they are. They are not main series episodes if Ash is not a main character in them.
I don't think Toru got the date wrong of the episode's airing either as more than one website says that the episode will air on 2/24. That's all I have to say on the matter. --ケンジガール 23:50, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Confirmed by Terebi-kun, this episode it's the 20th, and it will diffuse on 24th february The name of episode is : Pikachu VS Meguroko VS Koaruhie!!

I really don't think the fushide episode is episode 20. The sketches suny got were actaully episode 20 so this page needs to bbe changed. As soon as there is a link ill post it here if somebody doesn't beat me first but the magazine name is there.RBK 10:02, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Anyone who has seen subsequent Japanese airings?

It would be nice to make sure that the ending alteration of this episode really is dub only. So if anyone has seen this episode get re-aired in Japan and has information if the ending is the same as the first airing or not, please let us know. DVD would be nice but I don't think that's out yet. Thank you. --ケンジガール 08:50, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

  • Just watched this episode today, at least in Indonesian dub (which is heavily based on Japanese version), the ending is same as the first airing in Japan. AKUro? あくロちゃん 02:33, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

Does this episode not remind you of Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind? It was long since I saw it, though. - unsigned comment from Torr3 (talkcontribs)

Elements of it with the sick bug, but it is a common plot in the anime to help out an injured pokémon with its group issue (like An Oasis of Hope!, where it's an Injured Spoink and Ash's Goomy Evolves). It's possible but not so clear cut to be trivia worthy unfortunately Azure/ChromeVoid42 (talk) 17:59, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
Yes, but the Venipede look alot like the Ohmu from Nausicaä. Other similarities are: flocks of Venipede invade the city when nature is in danger, Ash befriends a Venipede (like the baby Ohmu), which makes the other Venipede gain his trust, violence vs. understanding. Torr3 (talk) 22:28, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
But Castelia isn't the cause for the disturbance, there's no flying machines, no poisonous spores and Nausicaa didn't befriend the Ohmu that then helped out, the baby Ohmu was being used as a homing beacon as a form of wiping them out by the female general and by saving it Nausicaa stopped them from destroying everything. Some is similar, some is different but just because Ohmu and Venipede have the same exoskeleton design doesn't mean that it's a direct reference. Of course, others can agree with you but right now no-one supports your claim and it's only seen as a build up to the Banned Plasma episodes. Azure/ChromeVoid42 (talk) 23:22, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
