There is some contraversy here. In volume 33, Dende states that he must limit Shenlon to two wishes per summoning or it won't be capable of granting multiple revival wishes (e.g. "Bring back everyone killed by Cell"). However, in volume 39, Shenlon asks for three wishes. We find it most logical that Dende took the time between the Cell and Buu Sagas to find a workaround for this problem.
