At the start of this episode, Ash saw a large number of Butterfree flying around in the sky, and Brock told him that it was the Butterfree mating season.
Ash realized that his Butterfree would probably want to have babies like the other Butterfree, so he and his friends rented a hot air balloon and watched Butterfree mingle with the others. Despite Brock's encouragement for Butterfree to choose one belonging to a cute female Trainer, Butterfree found its heart set on a pink Butterfree.Butterfree and Me - Rescored
It tried to impress the pink Butterfree with some fancy flying, only to be rejected with a slap in the face. Heartbroken, it flew into the woods below, followed by Ash and his friends who tried to encourage Butterfree, telling it to be assertive and tying a yellow ribbon around his neck to help him catch the pink Butterfree's eye. Butterfree tried a second time to impress the pink Butterfree with its Whirlwind and Tackle attacks, but this failed as well.
Then, Team Rocket showed up in a helicopter and captured all the Butterfree but Ash's in a giant net.
Butterfree pursued them, followed by Ash and friends in their hot air balloon, and they headed into a canyon where the Butterfree were stashed. They broke in and Ash battled Team Rocket while Butterfree used its Tackle against the cage the Butterfree were in, finally getting the attention of the pink Butterfree. It broke open the cage, and the Butterfree all flew free.
Team Rocket tried a second time to capture all the Butterfree, only to be stopped by both Butterfree and Pikachu. Afterwards, the pink Butterfree approached Ash's Butterfree and the two paired up.
The two departed as Ash watched in tears, remembering what the two had been through together and wishing his dear friend a fond farewell. Other appearances Ash's Butterfree has since appeared in the tenth opening for the anime, Spurt!
However, it has not returned in any episodes since its last appearance. Ash has, however, flashed back to having it several times, such as in The Thief That Keeps on Thieving! 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. That night, Iris tells Ash that another entire flock of Butterfree are coming through this island. Cilan tells Ash that if evolves it can go with them. Ash wasn't sure because of how often Metapod sleeps but it wakes up and Ash tells it that they are going to work hard tomorrow. The next morning, the gang decide to run and Metapod looks very determined.
But above them there was a flock of Butterfree and Ash notices that they are a week early with Iris commenting that they must have got a strong tailwind. Cilan says that they will leave the next day when the sun comes up and Ash notices that Metapod is sleeping during this conversation. Ash tells Metapod that it needs special traning so Ash decides to do hurdles, the horseback and push-ups, more running. This wasn't enough and after all this training Metapod hasn't evolved.
Suddenly, Team Rocket grab both Pikachu and Metapod and recite their motto. Pikachu tries to escape but can't. Ash tries to chase them and manages to grab onto the balloon and James' Amoonguss uses Body Slam on Ash to get him off.
But suddenly, Metapod evolves in Butterfree. Just after, Ash falls from the balloon and Butterfree uses Confusion to help Ash to the ground.
