The Six kinds of Butterfree by Pokemon-Mento The Six kinds of Butterfree by Pokemon-Mento
Here are the 6 different kinds of Butterfree, the top 3 are the normal versions and the bottom 3 are the shiny versions...

Normal - Butterfree -- This kind of Butterfree originates from the Kanto region and is the only kind of Butterfree available in the Pokemon game series...

Pink - Butterfree -- Only appearing in Anime the most logical explanation for this pokemon's colouring is that it originally came from "Pinkan Island" in the Orange Archipelago Region (AKA. The Orange Islands) because of a fruit that only grows there turns all of the pokemon on the island pink ...

Tropical - Butterfree -- This kind of Butterfree is only found in the Orange Archipelago region (AKA. The Orange Islands), it is believed that it has developed its unique wing pattern because of the hot climate.

if the pink butterfree originates from the Orange Islands - as you say - is it catchable? b/c aren't the Orange Islands in the games? I thought they appeared in one of the games later on, maybe fire red or leaf green? but yeah, great idea with the multiple butterfrees, i'd expected that rather than multicolored vivillons

You forgot 2 of them, there very well could be a tropical pink butterfree, which means you would need the shiny version of that too. Or were you only counting officially seen and documented butterfree?

I remember that in HG/SS a Trainer by the Lake of Rage claims to have seen a pink Butterfree before. Mystery solved!

I see the pink butterfree in ByeBye butterfree as a descendant of one from Pinkan island, her colouring being a recessive genotype that originally came about because of the mutation inducing fruit of Pinkan island.

firestarhill1 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This is quite possible, considering the fact that the fruit does cause mutations, and mutations being passed on to generations, your idea does work.

I allways think Butterfree was cute but funny ina way
*I am still wondering if that is a nose..nose as in a clown like nose O.o
after seeing a butterfree clip with the pinkish fem one and ash's butterfree,
it did seem like it's not the case and that t looked more like a blue color marking ...hopefuly @_@ )

I didn't know about the last one - is that shown in one of the anime epis?
*that with the red spot marks*

The pink butterfree is so sweet - I notice many liked it and im not a exception XD

The pink Butterfree was made long before that episode and that island was even created and the Pokemon who eat the pink fruit would only remain pink as long as they keep eating eat, otherwise they would return to their normal colors. The creators of series probably made her Pink so the viewers could tell her apart from the other Butterfree but it was an interesting theory :D

I haven’t watched the series in years but I remembered that different colored PKMN would appear from time to time for no apparent reason other than to make it cool I guess.

Yeah, but maybe they had the idea for that episode planned out already by then.

Shippuden23 Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2011
I don’t think so since it was made long before the second season started and people usually make stuff up as they go. Plus, if the Butterfree was form the island then she wouldn’t have been oink anymore since the PKMN will remain pink as long as they keep eating the fruit. But maybe we shouldn’t think much into this since the PKMN people randomly make PKMN with different traits for no real reason other than to make them unique/cool. Like the cristal Onix, giant Dragonite and giant Tentacruel.

Thanks! :)

True. Good points there.
She always was my second favorite Butterfree cuz she was different. Ash's used to be my first, but you know.

:iconshippuden23:
Shippuden23 Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2011
Yeah. I miss Butterfree.

I’ve noticed that Ash has reunited with every PKMN he gave away/freed except Butterfree, Pidgeot and Primeape, which is weird because those were 3 of his first Pokemon.

:iconharubells:
HaruBells Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah, but he never really used Primeape much. That had been a funny episode though. Looking back, it's depressing that they called rice balls "jelly donuts," even though they look nothing like jelly donuts.

And he had TOLD Pidgeot that he would go back for it one day. That filthy stinking liar.

There are differences in their appearance between males and females which gives us even more butterfree-versions. :D
The females have a black spot at their smaller wing-pair (like the butterfrees in the middle of this pic), the males don't. ;)
