    Kirby Phelps (PK) EarthBound anyone?

    This is something I never understood. In The Breeding Center Secret, James says he left his Weepinbell at the center and it evolved, but my question is, when did James get a Weepinbell?? I don't remember seeing him actually catch it in any episodes before that one. I might be wrong, but could someone explain!

    He caught it offscreen sometime prior to that episode. Simple as that.

    I have to agree with BCVM22. It was probably just one of those Pokemon caught off screen. No biggie. As simple as that.

    S.Suikun Thank you, SPPf! :)

    In Victreebel's departure episode, we actually do finally get a flashback to James' first encounter with the Weepinbell. The flashback never took place in any actual episode prior, but it helped to fill in that hole.

    Why didn't they actually show James catching him before the episode?

    Last minute details by the writers. Plus the characters don't always do things onscreen.

    He caught it before they met Ash.

    They showed where he caught it- here in episode 263. But I don't know when. And James used Weezing to train it. And after he saw it in Cassidy and Butch day-care it was a Victeebell.

    ChaosMage Izit cuz I is black?

    It happened some time between Koffing's evolution and the Day Care, presumably very soon before. It's less weird than Brock's Zubat- there was actually no logical point in that scene where he could have caught it without everyone else seeing.
