Bye, Bye Butterfree | Pokemon, the story of us
No, Ash never did meet back with Pidgeot or Butterfree nor did he go .. I love to see both Butterfree & Pidgeot return someday in the series. Ash fumbled through his jacket to get his Butterfree, than looked at it. "Don't you get it, if two Butterfree fall in love their trainers can meet and they can fall in "I love you, come back someday, you know where to find me!". As the sun rises, all the Butterfree get ready to depart, and Ash has to say but Ash promises they'll meet again someday as Butterfree joins the migration and.
Ash and the gang look for Caterpie and sees Caterpie sleeping in the tree. Caterpie sees them and tries to run away but falls off a branch, Ash catches it and smacks his nose on the tree trunk in the process.
Ash notes that it was ignoring Caterpie's feelings and says it wants to help it evolve and Caterpie agrees. Iris says that there are leaves around the area which Bug types love. Ash and the gang find these leaves and Caterpie really likes them and is eating them quickly.
Caterpie falls asleep after a while and Ash says it has to eat a lot otherwise it won't evolve. Ash is frustrated that Caterpie went back to sleep again and they all decide to take a nap. Caterpie wakes up and wakes Ash in the process. Ash decides it would be good for Caterpie to climb some trees. Caterpie then uses String Shot to glide across the forest.
Iris and Ash follow suit using the tree vines. Cilan said that Ash should be careful but then Ash falls on the floor but is saved by Caterpie's String Shot. They all have some lunch and they eat some Berries found in the forest. Leavanny decides to make Caterpie a leaf hood. Then there are some stills of the next day including some walking, vine gliding and running.
The next night, Team Rocket appear and comment that Caterpie is taking a long time to evolve. But they say that their main goal is to capture Pikachu. The next afternoon, the gang finds a forest with a variety of Berries. Caterpie goes to eat some Oran Berries. Behind Ash there stood an Ursaring and Ash and gang run away from it. Caterpie was eating a berry and Ursaring tried to attack Caterpie but was saved by Ash.
They all hide in the bushes but Caterpie suddenly sneezes and shoots some string on Ursaring's back and Ursaring spotted them. But to stop Ursaring, Caterpie uses its smell to warn it away but it got more angry than before. Ursaring chases them into a dead end. Caterpie fights back and uses Tackle and then String Shot to stop Ursaring. Ursaring breaks free, but Pikachu uses Thunderbolt and Ursaring runs away.
Iris and Cilan come to Ash's rescue and Ash thanks Caterpie. Suddenly, Caterpie evolves into Metapod and falls asleep.
Iris does this with the vines, so Ash and Pikachu do it as well, but miss a vine and fall down. Caterpie uses String Shot and binds Ash and Pikachu, saving them from the fall. The next day, Ash has another day with Caterpie before falling asleep at night. Team Rocket watched this and see Caterpie is taking too much time to evolve. They don't care much for it, as their real target is Pikachu. The next day, the heroes go with Caterpie to harvest berries. Ash and Iris see a claw mark, symbolizing someone's territory.
That someone is Ursaring, who chases them down. Seeing Caterpie eating its berries, Ursaring strikes, but Ash saves Caterpie in time and hides. Ursaring passes by and is accidentally shot by Caterpie's String Shot, from the hiding Caterpie and Ash was. The latte runs away with the former from Ursaring.

- Bye, Bye Butterfree
Caterpie starts releasing smell from its antenna, angering Ursaring even more, cornering them both to the end of a cliff. Caterpie Tackles Ursaring and binds it with String Shot. Despite Ursaring freeing itself, it got hit by Pikachu's Thunderbolt and runs off. Ash thanks Pikachu and Caterpie, the latter evolving into a Metapod. However, it retains its napping issue. Ash is not certain, since Metapod naps more than it trains.
Next day, the heroes run with Metapod and when they take a break, they notice the Butterfree flying to them. Iris suspects they used Tailwind, since they came here a week earlier. Ash wakes Metapod up to conduct the special training, else it may not evolve and leave with Butterfree. At the end of the day, Metapod still hasn't evolved and takes a nap. Ash tries to get it to train, but Pikachu and Metapod get captured by Team Rocket. Teddiursa watched nervously as Serena walked over and picked up her capture.
She stared at the park ball for a moment before she sighed and shifted her attention to Teddiursa. The little bear Pokemon grimaced as it was probably in for it now. Still, whatever she had in store for it, Teddiursa would take. She did just save it, after all.
She was actually concerned about its well-being after it purposely provoked a Pinsir and tried to blame her?! It could've been her who was being chased, and Teddiursa knew it would've probably laughed at the scene. Then when they were both worn out, Teddiursa would go in for the capture, but instead the roles were reversed and it was chased.
Guilt started to well up inside Teddiursa as it analyzed Serena's character. She actually really was a nice person, and it was an absolute scum bag. It was a liar, a cheater, lewd, crude, and just about every unlikable quality something could have. She didn't owe it anything, but she still saved it, and it wasn't just to capture Pinsir. Serena captured the Pinsir to save it. Teddiursa began to think maybe it had it pretty nice with Serena afterward. They never got along, but she still fed it and gave it shelter.
These were things Teddiursa never had when it was a wild Pokemon. It always had to mooch off of others…just like it had with Serena and the rest of her group when it first met them. It was then captured by them which it absolutely hated. It was too focused on what it had lost rather than what it gained and was determined to let the group know it. All that, and Serena was still concerned for its well-being. Teddiursa felt conflicted as it actually felt itself growing to like Serena.
Maybe it could handle being her Pokemon after all. It would handle it. Teddiursa had gained a lot since it was captured by Serena…especially a home. Teddiursa knew it wouldn't kill it to be nice to Serena from now on and show her its gratitude. It could turn over a new leaf, or at least not act like a snot all the time and listen to Serena whenever she tells it something. Their relationship could go from there. Teddiursa then noticed that Serena was still watching it and awaiting an answer.
Not wanting to make her wait anymore, Teddiursa nodded its head. She had her eyes closed and appeared to not want to see what she was doing. Teddiursa hung its head. It was ready to work with Serena for the rest of the bug catching contest and help her win for real, but it was being sent back to its pokeball. It lost its chance and had misbehaved again, but Teddiursa would accept it. The little bear Pokemon figured it would just have to prove its loyalty to Serena the next opportunity she gave it.
Teddiursa would prove that it could change. That's when it gave a cry of surprise when Serena hurled Teddiursa's pokeball to the ground with all her might, and it shattered on impact.
Teddiursa felt like it had been punched in the stomach several times when Serena did that. It couldn't believe what had just happened. Serena just shattered its pokeball!
Didn't that mean that she was…releasing it?! Teddiursa looked up and saw Serena exhale deeply that she had done what she did. I realize now it was just arrogant of me to think that. Not even the therapy session helped. It struggled to say something to Serena. It wanted to let her know that it could change. Sure, it was a jerk the entire time she'd had it, and not once did it show any gratefulness for what she'd done for it. She even gave it a chance to use it in a contest, and it could've been her who was almost hurt because of its nature.
Teddiursa regretted that now! It wanted to stay with Serena and prove its loyalty now! The fact that you purposely tried to put me in danger proved it. You caused trouble for all the other Pokemon, too. You never even attempted to be anybody's friend. That was true, but that was in the past now! Teddiursa wanted to shout at Serena that it didn't feel that way anymore! It only just now realized it liked being with Serena! However, Teddiursa kept choking on its own words because it was in such shock from what Serena had done.

Serena took Teddiursa's silence as cue to keep going. I never should've tried to capture you and force you to be my Pokemon when you didn't want to be.
Now you don't have to be. You're free to go.
BW132: Butterfree and Me!
At least here you'll be in a Pokemon reserve park," Serena finished as she stood up. I hope one day you'll find a trainer who's good enough for you. She was good enough for it! Teddiursa wanted to be with her! Teddiursa ran up to Serena and clung to her leg. It then looked up and gave its charming eyes to Serena. However, that had the opposite effect on Serena that Teddiursa had intended. Serena's tired expression morphed into a glare.
No one buys your fake cutesy poo act anymore," Serena told it, and with that, she shook Teddiursa off her leg and hurried away. As Serena left, she began to think of the times she and Teddiursa had shared.
She struggled to find at least one good time that would cause her to change her mind and turn back around to retrieve Teddiursa. She couldn't find anything, though.
They were all bad. It just didn't fit on their team or wanted to be her Pokemon. It was for the best. It was that thought that kept Serena going, and she never once looked back to Teddiursa.
Teddiursa fell on its behind as it watched Serena leave. It couldn't believe this had just happened. Serena had actually released it, but that couldn't be true. Teddiursa waited for about a minute seeing if…hoping if Serena would return and say she was just kidding.
The little bear Pokemon realized how ridiculous that would be. Serena wasn't cruel enough to play a joke like that…like it was. Teddiursa looked down at the ground, still trying to process it and not wanting to believe it was actually left alone now.
It wanted to run after Serena and tell her it wanted to be her Pokemon and not be wild anymore, but it didn't move. It had been a terrible Pokemon to Serena. It wanted to change now, but it was too late. Teddiursa had reaped what it sowed. The first real tears in a very long time started to fall from Teddiursa's face as it realized it would never get another chance to prove itself.
It had screwed up terribly. Now what was it supposed do? Serena…please come back to it. We'll just get a little closer," Ash whispered to the yellow rodent. They had just stumbled upon a Scyther. If they could capture this one, it would be a winner for sure. It looked pretty tough, but that wasn't to undermine all the other Scyther that Ash had seen in his travels, especially Serena's and Tracey's. All Scyther just looked tough to begin with. Ash was as quiet as he could as he crept closer with Pikachu right at his side.
When the timing was right, Ash would order a Thunderbolt, and he would throw the park ball. Hopefully, Scyther would be theirs and wouldn't break out. If it did, run like heck because it would be ticked. Pikachu was charging up, and Ash was just about to order Pikachu to attack when great misfortune struck.
The Scyther happened to turn around, and Ash froze as did Pikachu. Did this Scyther have some sort of sixth sense? How did it know they were behind it? Not only that, but Scyther seemed to have a pretty good idea of what they were going to do. It glanced back and forth from the park ball in Ash's hands to the Pikachu next to him who was frozen in attack animation.
The Scyther then got an angry expression on its face and hacked the tall grass beside it to bits. With that, they turned around and began running away as fast as they could while the angry Scyther gave chase. They passed by a couple of trainers who looked inquisitively only to leap out of the way just before Scyther mowed them down.
Ash glanced behind him to see several trainers giving him confused glances before he flashed an apologetic look and kept running. With the exception of Tracey's, Ash always seemed to have a bad experience when it came to a Scyther. It was as if fate was telling him he wasn't allowed to get one. It was so cruel. What was he doing running away?! He was Ash Ketchum and a future Pokemon Master. He wasn't going to let a ticked off Scyther stop him. He was just going to beat it.
Ash turned around stood right in Scyther's way as it got closer. Pikachu stopped, too, and stood by Ash's side. He was just about to order Pikachu to attack when another surprise happened.
A flutter of wings came up from behind Ash and flew past him before spraying out a pollen. It must have been Stun Spore as Scyther screeched to a halt once it entered the powder. It got a strained expression on its face before it turned around and flew away. Chasing this human and his Pikachu weren't worth if it was going to get a face full of Stun Spore.
Ash watched the Scyther leave and looked up at the flutter of wings in front of him that had jumped in to save him. Ash smiled broadly when he saw it was a Butterfree which would be another winner. He may not get Scyther, but he would get this Butterfree! It had to be friendly, too, if it tried to save him. Ash held up his park ball to the throw at the Butterfree but stopped when the Butterfree turned around.
As soon as it did, the Butterfree flew straight at Ash and tackled him. Ash and Pikachu both cried out as they thought Butterfree was attacking him. Pikachu charged up a Thunderbolt, but it stopped when it saw the Butterfree wasn't harming Ash. It was hugging him! Ash shook his head of the dizziness from being knocked over and wondered what on Earth this Butterfree was doing.
He then noticed something around its neck, and his eyes lit up in remembrance. It was a yellow ribbon. XXX Ash then stood up and looked down so the brim of his hat was covering his eyes. He didn't realize it, but a few tears were beginning to come to his eyes. The pink Butterfree then left the cliff and flew into the air to wait for Ash's Butterfree. I'll just tell the other Pokemon that you went on a trip, and maybe you will come back some day," Ash replied.
Pikachu then went up to Butterfree and shook its hand. Pikachu then went on to tell Buttefree that it knew Butterfree would be able to achieve its dream, which caused Butterfree to smile. Butterfree nodded as it flew into the air with the pink Butterfree.
They then turned around and began to fly into the sunset with the other Butterfree. Ash's Butterfree was taking several looks back. As Ash watched Butterfree leave, he began recalling all that he and Butterfree had been through together. He remembered how he first captured it as a Caterpie after it freaked out Misty. He remembered how as a Metapod, it won a fight against Samurai's Metapod and protected him from a Beedrill.
He remembered its great battles in the Pewter and Cerulean gyms. He really would miss Butterfree, but he also knew that this is what Butterfree really wanted: Butterfree is almost out of sight," Serena told him. Upon hearing this, Ash snapped out of his thoughts and ran towards the edge of the cliff. Butterfree heard its trainer's voice and looked backwards again to see Ash waving at it.
Thank you for everything! Ash's Butterfree began to have tears streaming down its eyes, too. It had many great memories with Ash. It could never have become the Butterfree it had today without Ash.
It could not have asked for a better trainer. Hopefully, it would see Ash again someday. With a final nod and wave to Ash, Butterfree turned around and fought the urge to look back again. The last distinguishable feature from his Butterfree among the others was the yellow ribbon that was around its neck. XXX Ash was looking at that same yellow ribbon.
Ash looked slightly older than when Butterfree saw him last, but there was no mistaking it once Butterfree caught sight of him. It had spotted Ash through the trees and couldn't resist seeing him again. How've you been, buddy!? Pikachu wasn't far behind and leaped up to hug Butterfree, too. Butterfree continued to smother Ash with an affectionate hug. It was so happy to be reunited with its old trainer once more.
It soon got off of Ash and nodded its head several times as if to ask Ash what all he had done since it was released. Ash smile broadly as he showed Butterfree his three badges from Johto. I've already gotten three badges from the Johto region! I'm here to compete in the Silver Conference! Ash couldn't believe it.

After all this time, he just believed Butterfree would be nothing more than a great memory, but here it was. Butterfree had always held a special place in Ash's heart. It was the first Pokemon he captured…as well as the first Pokemon he released. It had flown over the ocean to start a family and…that's right. You have a family, don't you? Butterfree seemed to smile as it flew a few feet off the ground and beckoned for Ash to follow it before it took off.
Ash completely forgot, nor did he care, about the bug catching contest as he anxiously followed Butterfree off the main pathway. Ash was so excited to see all of what Butterfree had been up to since it left, and Ash bet that Butterfree couldn't wait to see how Ash had been doing.
After a few minutes, Butterfree flew under some thick brush and into a small clearing. Ash could barely fit inside the small alcove and had to crouch down and crawl underneath it.
Once he emerged, he stood up and smiled at what he saw. He saw Butterfree slowly fly over to the other side of the clearing before it rested. Next to Butterfree now was none of other than the pink Butterfree whom it had chosen to be its mate. The pink Butterfree seemed to recognize Ash and showed surprise before its gaze relaxed and it nodded in welcome to the raven-haired boy and Pikachu.
I take it Butterfree's been really good to you, huh? It's quite a Pokemon, isn't it? Ash then noticed movement behind the pink Butterfree and stared in curiosity. The pink Butterfree seemed to know what Ash was looking at and looked towards Ash's old Butterfree to see if it was okay. Butterfree nodded as it totally trusted Ash, and the pink Butterfree scooted slightly to the side to show what was behind it, and Ash's eyes widened significantly.
Behind the pink Butterfree were about five or six tiny Caterpie. They slowly crawled out from behind the pink Butterfree and stared curiously at Ash. They had never seen a human before. Butterfree had always been careful to shield them and keep any human eyes away from them in this park. They weren't ready to go off on their own yet.
Ash, of course, was an exception. Ash felt a little silly once he felt tears come to his eyes. His old buddy, Butterfree, had become a dad. He wiped his eyes and gave a slight chuckle to Butterfree. It was a heartwarming sight to see the little Pokemon watch Ash. I got you when you were just a Caterpie. Now look how far you've come.
I'm proud of you," Ash told it. Butterfree blushed in embarrassment which caused Ash to laugh. Ash then noticed that one of the baby Caterpie had crawled up to Ash, and the raven-haired boy knelt down and outstretched his arm.
The Caterpie looked on curiously for a moment before it began to crawl up Ash's arm. Ash smiled at the familiar tickling sensation as the Caterpie worked its way up. He then turned back to Butterfree.
The baby Caterpie gave slight cooing sounds before they surrounded Pikachu and began to slowly smother it with affection. Pikachu struggled slightly to try and stand back up, but the baby Caterpie were relentless. Ash couldn't help but laugh at Pikachu's predicament.
He was sure that Butterfree or its mate would have no qualms about the Caterpie referring to Pikachu as their uncle. Ash then felt a buzz from his Pokegear, and when he checked it, he was interested to see that it was Serena. It was rather strange that she was calling him during the bug-catching contest. Was she in trouble? Ash answered the Pokegear and spoke quietly so as not to alert the baby Caterpie. Where are you at? For some reason, she sounded rather down.
I'm far in the east section of the park. I'm in that area, too? Can I come see you? I have something to tell you," Serena said. I'll be right there," Ash confirmed before he hung up his Pokegear and turned to Butterfree.
I'm going to go get Serena. Is it okay if I bring her back here? As he was going through, he couldn't help but wonder what it was Serena wanted to tell him. Serena had been walking by herself ever since she released Teddiursa. She hadn't attempted to go back to the safe house or even look for Marina.
She just simply walked along the path. She had seen a couple of bug Pokemon, but they didn't look as good as a Pinsir. Even with a captured Pinsir, which was a strong Pokemon, Serena couldn't get herself to be excited about it. She didn't want a Pinsir that badly, especially since it meant giving up Teddiursa. Still, the little bear Pokemon had brought it on itself.
The troublemaker made it quite clear it didn't wish to be a trained Pokemon. It was despicable and preferred a life of lies and deceit to get what it wants.
There is something about Pokemon I always been wondering..
Serena couldn't have a Pokemon that would make her and the rest of the group miserable for the rest of their lives. It was a little disheartening as Serena had made a promise to herself before she started her journey to never release one of her Pokemon because she couldn't handle it. Yet, here she was. Serena heard a rustle of bushes and looked up.
She expected another bug Pokemon to come out, but she raised her eyebrows when she saw Ash emerge. What was he doing in the bushes?
Did he think the better bug Pokemon were off the main path?
