Re: What is Sadder
I've always thought they ruined Butterfree's goodbye by playing the Pokemon theme song in the middle of it. The first song they played (Tears after the Cloudy Weather) fits much better. The theme song is too upbeat.
But otherwise definitely a very touching goodbye. These days no one really gets upset anymore. Ash is just like "Well goodbye <pokemon>, have fun training. You'll do great!" *sigh*
