Not sure if repost, but feels bad man.

Pokemon Episode #21:
Butterfree Theory
Did you know that in real life. butterflies die after
they lay their offspring? Caterpillars spend much
of their lives eating veggitarian so that they can
spin themselves into a cartoon. Once the cartoon is
spun. they spend majority of their
weeks "evolving" into a butterfly. After the turns
into a butterfly, the butterfly lives its life for about
2 weeks.
One theory suggests why Ash' s Butter free didn' t
return to him is simply because Butterfree is dead.

did you know that the skull on their head is their dead mothers skull? your turn pjotor

So, then the mother would be wearing her mothers skull.

The REAL question is which skull do they take. Do they take the mothers skull, or the mothers mothers skull? And if thats the case, why aren't there Cubones running around with twenty skulls because they took the skull their mothers mother had which is also the mothers skull.

Unless they give birth to two offspring before they die. Then each one gets a skull.

to make it little more clear to you

Thats under the implication that they are related. Which is non-canon and not valid when considering the cycle in the canon universe.

That idea isn't correct though. Look at the skull shape. The 'mother' clearly has a roman nose/face. This would mean her skull would also have the dome shape, which it doesn't. Even if it didn't, the round shape of the babies head would stop the skull from fitting properly.

you know that this is only one theory not 'the truth'
User avatar #46 to #44 - Icedangel (11/08/2012) [-]
Yes, that why I said 'implication.'

If you don't know what that word means, it means "A assumption that could be drawn from something.'

Which is what a theory is. Now, combine my lower statement with this implication and you can see that I have provided a response against said theory, which provides proof that the theory is wrong.

A dictionary is your friend.

Why do you think that this pic gives me a feel?
Did you know that Banette is a cast away doll, searching for the kid that threw him/her away?

Possibly my new favorite feel pic.

Wait hang on a sec...

Didn't we see Ash feed his butterfree at one point? So this one does eat after cocooning, SO IT LIVES.

Except for not really. Im sure trainers elsewhere with butterfree's had them a lil longer than 3-4 weeks. I mean, the possibility lies that after mating they get this 3-4 week lifespan, but a butterfree probably doesn't live for 3-4 weeks regularly.

I have a different theory: It's a childrens cartoon so it's unlikely it's dead
#39 - despicablemaz (11/06/2012) [-]
******** those bug catcher trainers have the same ******* piece of **** butterfree for years!
User avatar #35 - fukkenchaos (11/06/2012) [-]
Ash's Butterfree was male...males don't lay offspring...

It's alive.
User avatar #31 - Icedangel (11/06/2012) [-]
Or he just couldn't find Ash again cause the little bastard keeps traveling around.

I can't imagine that butterfrees have very good tracking abilities.
