If Dawn comes back I will most Def watch the anime again. I don't know why but I haven't been able to get back into the anime since they have change Team Rocket so maybe this could be the thing to bring me back to it.

There's no "if" needed as Hikari already came back (and left but that doesn't matter now. =D)

Maybe because of this, as well as a reference to the Pokemon tournament appearing in the episodes of Dawn's reappearance?

As for how exactly this ties in with Misty? Same reason why it would tie in with Brock, because they're actually IN that tournament in the games.

The world tournament in the anime already ended. No old Gym leaders were there.

Why the hell do you keep talking as if the episodes haven't aired already?

You asked why I thought Misty would be in it, I simply answered it.

Well that was Junior Cup... not full-fledged PWT we might see something like true PWT but it's on the other hand pretty unlike since Satoshi's group would probably not participate anyways.

I haven't seen the episodes, but I knew they were going to bring Dawn back for a mini arc. It's become a tradition since they got rid of Misty, but I'm surprised that she got so many compared to the other two and gives off the impression of favortism that I know would rub a lot of people the wrong way. I know on TV Tropes(I don't have an account there, I just read the pages to see what's happening with shows and/or fanbases without getting involved in the "bloodshed") there are already people wanting to accuse Dawn(and Iris) of being a "Wesley Crusher" type of character(google Star Trek: The Next Generation if you're confused on who I'm talking about).

And, for the record, despite how that sounded I do like Dawn and feel she had a lot of wasted potential(same thing with Misty). She reminds me a lot of Minako Aino from Sailor Moon who is one of my favorite characters.

Dawn only stayed for 7 episodes, which is only a few more than the past girls got. Remember, Piplup is highly marketable in Japan, its the popularity of the pokemon more than Dawn herself which is why she stayed slightly longer.

Overall I feel she had the worst cameo of the 3, if only because she really didn't do much upon her return and lost early in the tournament. She was basically treated poorly in order for the writers to glorify Iris and her Dragonite.

I was really talking more in the context of others reactions I've seen towards Dawn's return on TV Tropes(really, that place is getting more and more unreasonable and elitist. I'm on the verge of wanting to stop going there). I personally didn't see a big deal other that the surprise I mentioned at how she had more episodes(from what I've read and what little I've seen, the B/W anime is becoming more unpredictable than D/P was).

I knew Piplup was more popular in Japan, but that I didn't know that much at the expense of Dawn's character(she really is becoming a female Ash).

Dawn was designed to be a female take on Ash for little 8 year old girls. Some kids grew up watching DP as their first saga, and that's who the writers aimed Dawn at...not older fans. She basically had a similar type of personality as Ash did, just with a bunch of girliness and a love for fashion.

The other girls were designed to have more of a dynamic among the main cast and their own storylines. The writers obviously wanted to try something different with Dawn, but after that they went back to the usual group dynamic routine as seen with Ash/Iris/Cilan.

Oh my god, I have to see that. What episode was that in?

Anyway, more on topic, I had no idea Hikari was in Black and White. Then again, I haven't seen any episodes of B&W season 2, since I recently decided to watch the entire anime in Japanese, and I'm only on episode 9. I like Hikari, she's cool.

I think Dawn's just going to show up for a few episodes, then she'll just poof. Never to be seen again. I honestly love Dawn, as she's one of my favorite characters. I just wish she'll stay there permanently, or at least as long as Brock.

I hate that Dawn came back for like 10 episodes. She appears for the most amount of episodes during a comeback and I hope she disappears and is never again seen. She's the main reason I stopped watching Pokemon.

Her cameo was ruined by turning her into a rag doll for more iris glorification.
