According to ComicBook.com, an episode of Pokemon the Series: Sun and Moon may not be airing in the United States. The episode titled "Touchdown in Friendship!!, does not appear on Disney XD's current schedule. The issue causing the ban may be that Ash Ketchum's costume looks very similar to blackface, a type of makeup used by non-black people to create a costumed caricature of black people. Blackface is considered to be racist around the world and was largely abandoned in the United States during the Civil Rights movement. Pokemon has not released a statement regarding the episode.
