Even though i loved DP, i thought the ending was boring
I may love piplup, but i feel as if the aime writers were out of ideas. something amazing should have happened. i thought the last episode should have a bit of a BANG
I thought that he would challenge dialga and lose, and he would say "i will keep getting stronger". or dawn vs ash would have been great
Wow. Brock didn't get a goodbye song?
It's just odd Brock wasn't given a big send off given how long he lasted. Oh well.

Brock's also the only main character to actually leave the show twice. Even Misty only got one departure and never got to come back.
I assume Cyber means, the writers actually inteded the character to leave which indeed has happened with Brock twice.
For Ash departing from Hoenn leaving May, she was intended to return for BF, her true departure was at the end of AG.
You can technically say Brock left 4 times then, if you count his goodbye at the end of Johto...and then at the end of AG. Hell even his goodbye at the end of Johto was more emotional than the DP one.
i will miss DP that was my fav pokemon sereise..... and Dawn i will miss you so much! goodbye.. AHH again a sad ending of era! first Misty gone then May gone and now Dawn too ahh!! i hate sad ending!!

In the anime, it was portrayed that he may not return, but he always ended up doing so.
It's a shame his departure was so fast paced, but I did enjoy that 1 minute of friendship between both him and Ash.
I was never really able to bring myself to watch this episode...Seeing Piplup and Pikachu tear up like that...man, I really need to watch both versions (dub and original) All I can say was this was an end to a pretty good era in Pokemon history
Like battles? Bored? PM/VM me and we can set it up

WOW, it's amazing how much changed after this episode. No Brock after 12 of 13 seasons, no more Wobbuffet, no more comic relief Team Rocket, no more Team Rocket pokemon joining the motto, no more blasting off, no more contests, much less recurring old characters and pre-Unova pokmeon. Oy. I do like Cilan, I do LOVE the new Team Rocket, I do love the new motto, but we lost so much. The thing I miss the most about pre-Unova is the recurring characters. I would kill to see Butch and Cassidy or Gary again. And definitely Paul.
Regardless, it was a great sendoff for Brock. And at least we'll be seeing Dawn against shortly.

-- I'll put something later, I've been too busy.
My Shinies: NEW!! 5/5
These goodbye episodes always feel downplayed once the character shows up again in the next arc. Mainly because they show up so soon again rather than being gone for years.
Hopefully Piplup doesn't cry when Dawn splits again later on in BW2.
