    Did you know that three episodes of the Pokemon cartoon never aired because of Earthquakes? AG101: Shaking Island Battle was unaired because of the Niigata prefecture Earthquakes, and BW 023 and 024: Team Rocket vs Team Plasma were unaired because of the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. However, scenes from the BW saga episodes were reused, one from Part 1 was reused in Meloetta and the Undersea Temple, but in different colours, and the scene with Liepard using HyperBeam on a building in Part 2 was reused in Episode N' s opening. The episodes were all removed from Canon and never seen again.
    So, what do you think? All the info is from Bulbapedia, just look up Banned Episodes. Hopefully the creators learned their lesson.

    Actually, I don't think the Plasma episodes were canned because of the earthquake. There was destruction in that episode, but not from a quake as far as I can tell... on the other hand, they did have the Meteonite turn out to be a miniature sun generator- basically a magic nuclear device. And then, you know, Fukushima happened. And there went those episodes.

    So it was a coincidence?

    Wasn't the Fukushima thing caused by the earthquake?

    Pretty certain it was a combination earthquake/tsumani.

    i don't really know why it was cancelled instead of postponed, but i think it may have made the series better. i'd have preferred it if they ran into team plasma throughout the region, rather than all at once. i think it is one of the reasons this series didn't live up to it's potential, at least in my opinion.
