posted on 2014-04-21 13:30 EDT
The official website for the Pokémon XY television series announced on Monday that the previously scheduled episode for Thursday, April 24, "Kaitei no Shiro! Kuzumō to Doramidoro!!" (Castle at the Bottom of the Ocean! Skrelp and Dragalge!!), has been delayed indefinitely "due to circumstances."
In the episode, Ash (Satoshi) is fishing on the Muraille Coast when he pulls in a Skrelp that inflicts Pikachu with a deadly poison. A passing married couple is able to provide an antidote. The couple are underwater archaeologists who are looking for sunken ship in the area so Ash and his friends decide to help, but Team Rocket also comes looking for the ship's treasure.
The episode that will play instead is "Shōyō Gym Ikusa! Pikachu tai Chigoras!!" (Cyllage Gym Battle! Pikachu vs. Tyrunt!!). Pokémon XY airs Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. in Japan.
