and Butterfree! Until the Day We Meet Again!! Ash remembers that the first Pokémon he ever caught was a Caterpie, and he's determined to help this one!. Butterfree and Me! (サトシとバタフリー！また会う日まで！！ Ash and Butterfree! Until the Day We Meet Again!!) is the 33rd episode of Pokémon: BW Adventures in. They spend the day climbing trees and playing in the forest. Ash knows that Caterpie has to eat a lot before it can evolve, so he sets out to gather Oran It's a bittersweet moment, but Ash promises they'll meet again someday as Butterfree.
Ash is delighted to see it happen. Nurse Joy urges them to stay safe and sound. Just as soon as the entry is finished, the Metapod start to evolve. Ash has never seen so many Metapod evolving at the same time.
Cilan says that this is the first time he has seen a Butterfree. Cilan has never seen a Butterfree before, while Iris marvels at their beautiful wings. Iris and Ash both notice that the Butterfree are about to begin their migration, and sure enough, they all take off.
Ash even notices a second flock of Butterfree flying away from a different location. Everyone is in awe, with Cilan commenting that nature is showing it's delicious recipe for perfection. Suddenly, a Caterpie emerges from the bushes, looking dazed.
Ash scans this with his Dex also. Since Caterpie is destined to evolve into Metapod and then Butterfree, Iris and Cilan deduce that it was not able to evolve with the rest and so it's alone. Seeing Caterpie takes Ash back to the first he ever caught.
Flashbacks show Ash catching his Caterpie and having a good time with it. It then shows his Butterfree migrating with a female Butterfree that it met when Butterfree saved it and they both flew off into the sunset.
Ash and Pikachu discuss where Caterpie might be now, coming to the conclusion that it's happy with its new life. Then Ash talks to this Caterpie, trying to get it to evolve, but is frustrated that it's asleep. In a room alone, Ash makes a video call to Professor Oak but is surprised when Rotom answers. Ash asks whether Oak is alright and tells Ash about Rotom's pranks.
Ash returns to find Caterpie still sleeping. He nudges it several times and it finally awakes. Ash sends out Leavanny and tells Iris who looks perplexed that they should battle because they are both Bug types and Leavanny has already evolved which would help Caterpie too.
But when Ash is ready to battle Caterpie, Caterpie falls back asleep. He decides to wake up Caterpie by telling Leavanny to use Energy Ball. But this scares Caterpie a lot and it runs away. Iris notes that the only thing it's fast at is running away. Ash and the gang look for Caterpie and sees Caterpie sleeping in the tree. Caterpie sees them and tries to run away but falls off a branch, Ash catches it and smacks his nose on the tree trunk in the process. Ash notes that it was ignoring Caterpie's feelings and says it wants to help it evolve and Caterpie agrees.
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. Ash wonders where Butterfree is now, but knows it has a good life with its mate. Oak, but is startled by his Rotom at the screen. Oak scolds Rotom, who shocks him back. Ash comes back and seeing Caterpie still asleep, he wakes it up. Ash decides to help Caterpie evolve by having it battle.
Ash sends Leavanny, thinking it may be able to help Caterpie evolve due to both of them being Bug-types. The latte is still asleep, so Leavanny uses Energy Ball to wake it up. However, Caterpie becomes scared and runs off. Ash, Pikachu and Leavanny seek Caterpie, who is sleeping on a tree.

It wakes up and got terrified of them, then runs to the higher point of the tree. However, it hangs on a branch, which snaps. Caterpie falls down, but Ash rescues it, but bashes himself into the tree.
Ash tells Caterpie he had the latter before and cannot ignore it.
Butterfree and Me!
Instead, he asks it for a training, which Caterpie agrees to. They come to a bush, where Caterpie eats some leaves, then takes a nap. Seeing Caterpie taking naps all the time, Ash, Pikachu and their friends do the same.
After some Altaria and Swablu pass by, Caterpie wakes up. Ash has an idea, for a training - he, Pikachu and Caterpie climb trees. Caterpie uses String Shot and swings from tree to tree. Iris does this with the vines, so Ash and Pikachu do it as well, but miss a vine and fall down. Caterpie uses String Shot and binds Ash and Pikachu, saving them from the fall. The next day, Ash has another day with Caterpie before falling asleep at night. Team Rocket watched this and see Caterpie is taking too much time to evolve.
They don't care much for it, as their real target is Pikachu. The next day, the heroes go with Caterpie to harvest berries. Ash and Iris see a claw mark, symbolizing someone's territory. That someone is Ursaring, who chases them down.
Seeing Caterpie eating its berries, Ursaring strikes, but Ash saves Caterpie in time and hides. Ursaring passes by and is accidentally shot by Caterpie's String Shot, from the hiding Caterpie and Ash was.
The latte runs away with the former from Ursaring. Caterpie starts releasing smell from its antenna, angering Ursaring even more, cornering them both to the end of a cliff. Caterpie Tackles Ursaring and binds it with String Shot. Despite Ursaring freeing itself, it got hit by Pikachu's Thunderbolt and runs off.
Ash thanks Pikachu and Caterpie, the latter evolving into a Metapod.
