Pokémon the Series: XYZ episode "Coming Apart at the Dreams!" Scene Reanimated

On Saturday, November 19th, 2016, Cartoon Network in the United States aired the Pokémon the Series: XYZ episode "Coming Apart at the Dreams!" which was heavily edited compared to the Japanese version. Many of the scenes featuring Ash and his Pokémon on top of the Prism Tower while he was captured by Lysandre appear to be completely reanimated and not just simple paint edits. A list of all these edits has been added to our episode guide for comparison.

The reason for this edit seems to be that the English dub took exception to Ash and his Pokémon appearing to be in the Crucifixion position and were also tortured by Lysandre while in this captured position. The English dub modified the scenes to instead have Ash's arms and his Pokémon's arms hanging down instead of extended out and they also removed most of the facial expressions of pain. It is unclear if this edit was an attempt to censor religious similarities to the Crucifixion of Jesus, to soften the scene to make it seem like Ash wasn't being tortured or a combination of both.
