Missing Brock

Recommended Posts

GrewupGeek

Hey, here is a question for everybody, but does anybody else miss seeing Brock in the Anime?  He was like the perfect counter balance between Ash, and whichever girl he travels with, by being the big brother who keeps things on track while keeping the peace whenever there is a lover's spat, so to speak, providing the facts during certain events, while also providing some comic relief whenever he sees a pretty girl and tries to flirt, only to either flop each time, or gets dragged away whenever he starts to make a complete out of himself, wither by the ear, or by pokemon. With him being apart of Ash's journey, in Kanto, and from Johto to Sinnoh, kept wishing he came back in Unova and Kalos, Alola, not so sure.  Don't get me wrong, Cilan wasn't too bad, but the downside with him is that he seems a bit overdramtic at times, and while Clemont had more of his own thing going on, Bonnie was the Brock of the group when it came to playing matchmaker for her brother.

 

Anyway, when by the end of DP, the animators decided to find a reason to not have Brock return in BW, felt like the series throwing out a key player messed things up quite a bit.  While I'm not sure if I'm the only one to feel this way, yet curious, if anybody else felt disappointed when Brock got cut, or what.

But a vist from him every once and a while would be great

The 20th movie, which is the "new" version of the first-ever Pokemon episode(Pokemon! I Choose You), could've gave Brock a comeback opportunity....

 

But it appears that one can make an observation that TPCi didn't want to pay royalties to the old in the process of making the new, so they may have introduced new characters to fill the void left by his omission in the movie, but such new movie still robs some of the viewers' childhoods in the process by not including Brock...

 

^ I haven't seen him outside of flashbacks ever since the end of DP's anime arc... well, maybe outside of the Brock & Cilan("BW-XY transition arc")special that Ash did not appear in, as the episode takes place after the Unova League's end and the resulting Ash Pallet return that occurs after every League(except for DP-BW, in which he returned, but we didn't see him do so). So it's only natural that one is displeased about the cut of Brock(and/or Misty, who appeared in the "old" Pokemon! I Choose You, but apparently will not appear at all in the "new" Pokemon! I Choose You) from the future of the pokemon anime series...

 

^ A decision that I believe could leave some viewers confused... Then again, if the Delta Episode of Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire explains everything regarding alternate universes...

I don't think they'll actually bring back Brock now....he has been with Ash for soo long now and they will give other new characters a chance in place of him. :mellow:

 

But i want Serena back now! :(

And sad thing is for good this time, since last time Brock left, was in the Orange Islands, leaving some unanswered questions involving him and Professor Ivy, while bringing in Tracy, which probably led to a lot of fans demanding Brock's return for Johto.

I think a lot of people forget, though, that Brock is a gym leader.  He has other things to do in his life than run around with some kid who ages as 1/20th the normal rate.  It was really nice having him in the show, and I do miss him- but in the end, he had more important things.

Thats not true, 1/20th means he would have turned 11 by now o.0 More to me it looks like 1/(infinity) - He just doesn't age even a second after he reached 10 years @_@ .

 

By the way, Brock is no more a gym leader, he became(was studying at that time ) a Pokemon doctor, after the sinnoh adventures were over.

Yeah, at the start of the Viridian City Gym episode: "The Battle of the Badge", or the 63rd episode of the Pokemon OS...

 

^ FYI: That episode's first US air date occurred 17 years, 9 months, and 4 days ago, AZ time...

Ah, but what is time to AZ?  The days, years, and centuries mean nothing; all that matters is that he find his floette...

 

 

 

 

Yes, I really did just make that pun.  If your ears hurt, don't be ashamed to ice them. :P

There's this thing called floating timelines. That's why the characters never age, even if years have passed in-universe. But I do indeed miss Brock.

Brock-"Oh, Domino! So black and white, yet so playful! What do you say we find a place to lie down together and see if we're a match?"

 

No other character would say this.

From the movie Metwo Return. When he was introduced to Domino.

I mean, he has a lot of weird lines, but that one's just disgusting.  Still, I love how he can tell the difference between all the Jennies, even when in the picture he's pointing to, they're all identical. :P
