** The same reason no one knows what the original 'X' stands for. Let's just leave it at that.



** Maybe it's because it works exactly the same way. I mean, in the original series, using Chemical X in any more than tiny amounts (Hyperdermic laser, that weird box thingy) typically tends to have nasty side effects, unless you're creating from scratch. It's incredibly powerful and borderline magical, but it's also unstable. Chemical Z is clearly far weaker from the reaction with the sweetbread, but it's much easier to work with.

** The more obvious reason is originality. PPGZ is the Anime adaptation, yes. But there is no stopping from having original characters and all that. Chemical Z being one of them.

* It's been awhile since I've watched the series, but I remember that Chemical Z was created through a chemical reaction in Chemical X induced by the Professor. My question is what was wrong with Chemical X, especially if Chemical X in that universe worked just like the original series' Chemical X?

* Was anyone else bothered by the fact that the dub changed the girls' civilian names to be the same as their superhero names? Wouldn't that make the whole "secret identity" thing ''painfully obvious''?
** I know of people who nicknames their friends that way. And actually try to act like their namesakes. Just because they are nicknamed 'Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup' does not make them the real thing. (Okay, in this case is true)But yes, it IS obvious that the Powerpuffs are Momo, Kaoru and Miyako in fancy dresses.
*** It really wouldn't have been that bad to use the "Oops I did it again" names. Momoko->Bertha, Miyako->Beatrice and Kaoru->Betty.
* The end of the series bugs me. I know, Him is gone and he was the only real Black Chemical threat, but just like the girls recovered their powers because their bodies were able to replicate the altered DNA again, that means the victims of the Black Chemical are ''incurable''. That's depressing.
* Why did they change all the villains' personalities and designs? I especially hate what they did with Him, he was originally threatening yet funny, now he's neither. And why does the show have so little of the parody type humor the original PPG had? Did they really think the "omg randomness!" thing would cut it?
** TheyChangedItNowItSucks. While the original Mojo and Him cannot be replicated, I personally like what this anime did with some of the villains - particularly Princess.

** Because then she couldn't use the dozen or do different bubble powers she had? Seriously, spray, capture, rescue, electric, binding, healing, 100 ton...throwing the rod would have made us wonder why she bothered.
