Thanks Maganon for the title.

DP190: Pokemon Doctor-Brock!

Airdate: 2th September

Screenplay: Shoji Yonemura

Brock being a doctor is pretty much saying good-bye.
Oh, Dawn leaves in the last episode, what a fast send off dang.

Whoa...I think we all joked about Brock leaving to stay with Nurse Joy, but I don't think anyone expected it to happen o.o

I'm presuming Brock's staying with Nurse Joy from the title...

I like Brock, but I don't think he has an important role between the group. Him leaving sucks, but I will live with it.

I wonder who Ash's new Travel-buddies will be when he enters the world of Black and White? You know,the new region of Isshu? Who knows? I'm gonna miss Brock and Dawn...Even if her Piplup was annoying. But we'll see them again soon...who knows?

Well, if Ash meets Iris in Best Wishes, I hope she doesn't have her bike around.

As for Brock, he's been in every season prior, AFAIK. He needs to go back to that gym and start doing something!

I figured Brock would end up becoming a doctor. Other than breeding, it seemed like the most reasonable new dream he can follow through with. Plus, the writers giving him a Happiny earlier in the series could have been for this exact reason. Therefore, it's possible this could be the episode that Happiny might evolve.

It's sad to see Brock go for good this time, but I have high hopes for Black and White and what's to come.

Well it's about time even though it will feel weird without him. I hope the character that replaces him is a spicy character otherwise I will threaten to sue The Pokémon Company and want Brock back.

I atleast hope they make the leaving a little bit emotional. Ash has traveled with this guy through 4 different regions, so he should be upset to see him go. Also:

Woah, I knew he was leaving but it kind of hits home now it's official OFFICIAL. Hmm, things won't be the same without Brock but I hope we'll see him eventually.

Well, Brock's apparently gonna be gone for good, or at least for Generation V.

Good riddance, Brock. I used to have some respect for you. But after your little "gag" became really the only important aspect of your character, that respect is now a distant memory in the back of my head.

Heh, true.

You know, that reminds me. A silver lining about not returning to Kanto is that at least then we won't have to deal with YET ANOTHER problem with Pewter Gym for the third time in a row. Honestly... I hated it when they had Brock return despite the fact that Pewter Gym was in a very bad condition thanks to his family, twice. Arguably, it was in even WORSE condition than Cerulean Gym under Misty's sisters, and that's saying a lot if you ask me.

Good point. Not that it really matters much anymore, though. They never really bothered to explain his goal (since apparently the whole "breeder" part was in fact an entirely different thing from the games that was only related due to a complete mistranslation), and even if it was the same one as the one from the games, he certainly did not make significant progress. Closest thing to "progress" is that he hatched two eggs, one of which he actually raised after birth, and they didn't even bother with the whole producing an egg aspect.

YES! Oh my god! I mean saying good bye to Dawn is probably the happiest day of my life. I dislike Dawn. Brock is content with me so he will be missed. Dawn will not.

Ok... Brock is leaving but it doesn't mean he's a doctoc because his happiny can evolve that episode and then they say he's a doctoc! Dont forget that the japanese episodes titleS are really weird and sometimes dont go with the episodes!!!

Hmm...well I'll definetly miss Brock. He was a cute character. Personally though, I'm very excited about Dento. He and Brock are very similar, but if pokemon does what they did to May, they'll make more episodes about Dento, revealing more about his character and sorts. As for Dawn, she is the prettiest thing alive (now i would normally not say this since Dawn is irritating)compared to Iris. Iris is...well just check the thread i made. Dawn was okay. I wish Lyra had replaced her, just as i wish the generation 5 girl could replace Iris (lol all my friends would think im cosplaying the 5 girl tho..that wuldn't b good...). But all in all, I think Brock will always be one of the most remembered characters in the Pokemon anime.

Oh dear Mike! Please tell me your not going to pull that on me
The clues are here, he's becoming a Doctor in the second to last episode.
Dento, has some things that Brock had, he's a waiter and he knows a lot about Pokemon just like Brock. Please don't be one of those fans that are in denial till the series ends. Your a Brock fan I gather and I respect that but....

Until it's confirmed that Brock leaves I'll assume that he's going to stay.

That's cool, I've been seeing Brock fans do that now. Which is understandable, since he did keep coming back each series. However there are so many signs now pointing to him leaving now, but yah fair enough.
