    Default Will Brock ever come back?

    I don't really watch the anime, but it kind of upset me when I found out that Brock had been replaced. Do you think he'll ever come back?

    Knowing TPCi and the writers really anything is possible right about now. I find that most people had no care for him returning in Diamond and Pearl though.

    Anything is possible.

    Nope. He has no reason to come back as a member of the permanent crew, if that's what you mean.
    It's possible he'll make a few appearances in a small handful of episodes during BW, but don't expect any more than that.

    What's with fans of the Pokemon anime always complaining about long-time characters, that have been losing their flavor, finally leaving the show? Takeshi has suffered from much character derailment during this past decade and was due for departure ages ago. He's no longer interesting nor relevant.

    Other parts of the Pokemon fandom are used to new protagonists being introduced and old ones leaving every generation. There's no reason why you guys shouldn't get used to it too.

    I think it kind of depends on how Dent fairs throughout the series. No doubt if Dent becomes unpopular closer to the end, Brock could come back. Or even We could start getting a new male companion every saga.

    It's very unlikely.. a few appearances throughout the series as a whole (I don't mean just the Unova saga, I mean any saga to come) but anything could happen.

    Cilan is already a very popular character, which means Brock has no chance. Its very similar to how when May replaced Misty, and May's popularity is what led to the writers abandoning Misty.

    i don't miss Brock to much, although I do like him better than Cilan so far.

    Brock's gone the same way as Misty, he won't be back this time, unless he shows up for a reunion if the show ever has a final conclusion.

    To be honest, Brock needed to go, he was wayyy past his time of becoming cliche. At the same time, I'll miss him, he's been with us since the very beginning.

    Goodbye Brock.

    Brock is a popular character in Japan. If the Japanese want him back, then the writers will put him back. Other then that, no he will not return. It is all up to the Japanese fans and creators.

    I would love for Brock to come back. Unfortunately, I don't see it happening.

    Cilan just seems really boring to me.
    This is Turtwig, he was the most under-appreciated starter in Diamond & Pearl. If you picked Turtwig as your starter, put this in your sig. Started by Dax-360

    Look. Look at my avatar's face. Doesn't he just look awesome?

    Well, he found a job as a doctor, which makes me think he won't come back, exept for a few appearences here and there.If this is like johto, he will come back, but as I said, very unlikely.

    I have to agree with others,Brock at this point doesnt have much chance to become main character in show again.When you think about it he was only character which was given second chance by writers becoming main after he was dumped after Orange Islands.
    In theory writers could bring him back to become major part of show again like they did once already but i wouldnt hold my breath on it,although if by any chance this happens i could see fanbase being shaked up alot,lol.

    To be fair if writers wanted they could create reason to have him join group again.For example his goal is to become doctor,well if he decides to become travelling doctor he could conveniently join Ash on his journey travelling through same region to learn about new things.

    When he returned after Orange Islands writers didnt had problems with coming up with excuse behind his reunion.

    Thats matter of opinion in reality.I met many people who still find Brock entertaining eing sads to see him go.

    When he wasnt neglected he got some great development and screentime as character even in DP.It just happens writers sadly never gave to him much attention.

    Other parts of the Pokemon fandom are used to new protagonists being introduced and old ones leaving every generation. There's no reason why you guys shouldn't get used to it too.
    Not always,at least not in Misty case.To this day people demand for her to return as main in show again.Considering how she never got proper closure never being used toi fill potential as character havbing unexplored things in story i dont blame them.

    Yeah keep dreaming,.Mays popularity had nothing to do with writers not bringing Misty back.Just like Dawns popularity had nothing to do with May not coming back.Judging by interview with ex pokemon director mr.Hidaka and Takeshi Shudo blogs writers simply rather want to use new characters instead of reusing older ones to develop them more no matter what benefits this could bring.Its formula of this show which changed not giving much chance for somene from past to become major character again.

    For record Misty and May are equally popular having equally big fanbases.If you dont believe it do little research around internet to wind away your doubts.

    The only reason why they wrote Takeshi out during the Orange Islands was that they thought he looked offensive to foreigners rather than becoming stale (he was a GREAT character during the original Kanto saga). Writing out Kasumi, Haruka, Masato, and Hikari were completely different matters all together.

    If the writers didn't give Takeshi much attention, don't you think that's a sign that they didn't know the hell they wanted to do with him on the show? Seriously. Kasumi got proper closure by finally taking up her post as the official Gym Leader of Hanada City (and having a whole episode centered around her departure), be grateful that the same thing happened to Takeshi in regards to becoming a Pokemon Doctor without being written off without any explanation like Rocket-dan's old personalities. People complain about the show becoming crap because their favorite characters get written off. Even though they fail to realize that the writing was turning into crap in the first place. How can you people watch in content when your favorite characters are turning into useless background props as they rot on-screen? Jesus christ, I liked them as much as their avid fans, but come on. Don't torture them like that.

    Also, "other parts of the fandom" as in other parts of the fandom besides the anime. The games regularly get reset with a new set of characters every generation and the Special manga regularly switches over to a new bunch of main characters every generation, but no one ever bitches about that. No one whines about not being able to play as Red anymore, despite the fact that every straight male and female jacked off to his presence the moment HGSS came out (I'm purely speaking for the Japanese fandom in this case, though...). They do moan about the Pokemon though, but that's a different matter all together.

    Gary came back while Ash was in Sinnoh, so I'm sure that Brock will come back when Ash is in Unova.
    Mudkip is my favorite starter Pokemon.

    If by "come back" you mean "cameos" and insignificant one-episode roles, then yes.

    I think it all depends on cilan. Cilan right now is the new Brock, if he proves popular towards the end of the saga (i think it is too early no matter what you watch dub or raw) if the writers think this was a good move and they will continue with it. If not Cilan will leave into the sunset of unova and then the writers have a choice.

    They could bring brock back and see if this proves to be a more popular move or try someone completely new and then keep trying until they get the right kind of character for the 'new' show.

    However, as I said, its just too early to tell if Cilan will prove popular enough for another saga.
    Loves every part of pokemon, loves the movies, the anime and every game, so you could call me fan lol.

    Apparently i'm a...

    If they write Cilan's lines right and lose a few of the cooking references (yes, thank you for once again letting us know that you're gym was a restaurant AGAIN), then all Brock will really need is one last cameo episode. Like way latter on Pikachu starts showing weird symptoms from Zekrom zapping him, so they call in some kind of Pokemon doctor specialist and when he gets there it happens to be Brock.
    I don't use "uber" Pokemon, I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature. (Started by Tyranitar)

    Cilan is already more popular than Brock in Japan.

    In fact Cilan is the most popular character in BW.
