I think this just made my day all miserable! D:
I hate you, animé creators!

Oh well, I could always watch the old animé where I get to see Brock. ^__^

Yeah, but he's left every year since the original series (he left for the Orange Islands, remember?). And then he comes back (I think he loves Ash or something, he's always following him around).

Well, looks like they really wanted to replace him. A girl friendly (awaits the Dento fangirls) gym leader (corocoro reveals that he is a gym leader in BW) who knows a lot about Pokemon behavior. He has Brock replacement written all over him.

    Maybe he'd come back again. He did leave in the Orange Islands and came back later, like this person said:

        I'd be fine with that, at least we'd get a break from him a bit. Some times all you need is a break to miss a character yah know?

        I strongly doubt he'll come back. Orange Islands was a season/saga. He is leaving for a whole new generation. I wouldn't bet on him coming back smack mid-way through BW. You can try to hope for 6th generation, but I also see low chances for that.

          So maybe, like the Kanto trio. Have Ash/Dento/Iris have three Generations?

            Don't you need a degree to become a doctor? Like 8 years of college?

            Anyways, being the Brock fan that I am, I am hoping/praying/convincing myself that Brock becomes a doctor and still travels with Ash and co. for Gen V anime. Yep, that's what I'm gonna go with.

              At least he can now be closer to Nurse Joy, besides, he was not really much of a "breeder" at all..........

                  I shouldn't be, but I am.

                  I am a bit surprised. Slightly sad. I was never a Brock fan though, so his leave isn't going to break my heart. I am just kind of shocked. I think it's going to feel rather lonely. Well, at least he can finally grab his Nurse Joy. Maybe he can finally get something.... Or stand there behind the desk and wish his little heart out like he always does.

                    I don't think so. They're gonna pull a Bye-bye Psyduck on us.

                    I thought Psyduck was leaving in this episode, but it was just a filler.

                    I think Max will join Ash in his adventures. Since he was a very eager boy and he should be 10 now! I want him back with either May or Misty!

                      Max isn't 10 Ash has and always will be 10, so Max can never age. Now he can travel with Ash if he wants to but won't have any Pokemon like last time.

                        That's not a good reason, Ash's Lapras aged quite a bit with Ash staying virtually the same.

                          Brock's just kinda... been there. He only returned for Johto because the fans liked him so much, but he hasn't really been anything important for the show since the end of Battle Frontier. Yes, I like Brock as a character, but he really needs to leave, considering he likely won't appear in any Gen V games.

                          To be honest, I thought Brock really wanted to be one the best Breeders and it showed in the earlier seasons of Pokémon with the original group. However, as time progressed he didn't seem to be doing anything to further his dream. So, what happened Brock? There's more to being a Top Breeder than having the right food. :< What about the grooming, bringing out the best in a Pokémon's move, and all of that jazz? To be a breeder, Brock really needed more screen time to show he was progressing as one. So, as much as it makes sense for Brock to become a doctor, it also feels as though the writer's are making it an easy escape to remove him from the show.

                            Well, I guess this means that Brock really is a creeper who follows ten year olds around the world. That is a little creepy.

                            I will be happy that he is leaving, as he wasn't going anywhere, or doing anything really. Nostalgia, however, will kick in and I will be a little sad. Sooo yeah : <

                            I just want a fresh new cast. New characters all together, apart from Ash (unfortunately, considering I don't see much progression in the character development he has).

                              I thought it was already confirmed that both Brock and Dawn are leaving and that Dento and Iris are replacing them? At least that's what I heard from filb.de and serebii
                              @ Patchisou Yutohru: if the info is correct then that's a fresh new cast for you (apart from Ash) xD

                              even though I'll miss Brock, I don't think he will make a permenant return like what happened with the orange league, but just show up in a few episodes like Misty and May did
                              it seems to me that the producers are trying to break out of the "anime routine" for the black and white arc



                              [edit]
                              here's a youtube link to the BW anime preview if anyone's interested
                              (apparently the BW poster includes Dento and Iris but not Brock and Dawn)

                                Do you remember one of the first DP episodes called Doc Brock? It might just be another one of those or it could be like the Orange Islands all over again!
                                Yes, I am a Brock fan.

                                  For people who wish to stay spoiler free from Gen V :

                                  Spoiler:
                                  Yes, I am sure they're removing Brock for that guy, Dento. After all, he was confirmed to be the first Gym Leader of Isshu !
                                  And it's really sad ! Brock was the only character I really liked : Dawn was too excited for anything and Pikachu is like Ash's extension of its very being...
