Is it true that the move Earthquake got banned in an episode?

My friend told me that the move Earthquake got banned because an Earthquake happened in Japan before the episode was suppose to air. Is this true or not?

Banned 5 Episode 377: Shaking Island Battle! Barboach VS Whiscash!!

Reason for Banning: The most recent episode has not been aired
anywhere in the world, not even Japan. It was originally postponed due
to massive earthquakes in the area and since it features Whiscash
making Earthquakes it would have been bad taste. However this episode
was scheduled for a further Japanese showing but didn't air. Now it
has come to the US Airing and it again has been skipped.
