I hadn't noticed but man, that seems excessive and if it was such an issue I wonder why 4Kids didn't ask the Japanese animators to change the badge case design.They had been doing this since Satoshi first got his badge case in Houen's third episode, possibly due to FCC guidelines.
He really should've suspected that Yukiwarashi was up to no good, but I suppose that this was another instance of Satoshi giving Pokemon the benefit of the doubt since one his recurring traits is that he seems to trust Pokemon more than humans.Jnmisty said:I love this episode very much. In a way, Ash was suspicious of Snorunt when it gave him the apples, and yet he let his guard down when it grabbed his hat.
