Your point, being? Brock getting a reference doesn't mean he'll actually show up. Its the same thing as when Misty was mentioned via the lure in DP yet she never actually appeared in any of DP's episodes.
I wouldn't mind seeing Brock later on at some point, but as of right now there's no reason to assume he will appear.
Still makes it idiotic to be complaining about movesets.
U mad bro?
And we all now that if we take all of Ash's pokemon till now into account, that there are many who have a common move (i really hate it that the writers are stuck with Flamethrower for all of Ash's fire types, i mean there are so many other moves like Fire Blast or Heat Wave or the new ones like Incinerate which they can use, but no they have to use that).
Back in DP we had 2 of Ash Sinnoh pokemon using the same move (Dig for both Gible and Infernape). But it seems to be different in the case of Unova (atleast in Ash's pokemons case).
Before Krokorok was caught Ash's Roggenrola used to know Stone Edge, but just few episode before Krokorok was caught, they made Roggenrola evolve into Boldore and drop Stone Edge in favour of Rock Blast. This seems to suggest that the writers are trying to keep the moveset of Ash's Unova pokemons different as Stone Edge seemed to be the main finishing move for Krokorok (i won't count Tackle as it seems to be a based type of move).
Now as we know, Palpitoad's finishing move is Hydro Pump. So giving it to Oshawott seemed odd as there are plenty of moves the writers could have given Oshawott in its place.
But this also seems to also suggest (if we take into account the Stone Edge case), that Palpitoad maybe getting a new move in place of Hydro Pump. It also possibly suggest (its just a guess and less likely to happen until Krokorok evolves), that Palpitoad might be evolving in the future (since it still lacks a 4th move).

I just finished watching the episode. I enjoyed seeing Brock's cameo in a flashback. I really liked seeing Dawn and Iris interact in this episode, it looks like they really get along . The Piplup and Oshawott rivalry is still funny and so are some other stuff in the episode. I really enjoyed the parts where Dawn and Iris called Ash a kid. I think they called him that like 3 times in the episode XD
And I think Dawn says no need to worry also after falling into the bushes XD
I rate this a 10/10!
Brock flashback! This is officially my favorite episode of the Best Wishes arc.
... I don't think anyone actually expected that from an offhanded remark about his cooking. I'm just pleased he wasn't immediately forgotten in spite of the way the writers treated him towards the tail end of Sinnoh. This is a guy who they at times found flimsy excuses not to involve in the action of the episode.Brock getting a reference doesn't mean he'll actually show up.
This is his second mention by the way. He was also brought up in the previous episode. I think some people missed it because it was a verbal mention and not a visual cameo.
The interaction between Iris and Dawn is already way better than anything May and Dawn did together (and obviously May and Misty too). I thought the episode was cute, but seeing Onix for the millionth time kind of soured it. But it was overall decent.
I also really enjoyed the beginning where Iris was training with Excadrill and Axew. I think it's a great idea that Axew is training with more bigger and experienced pokemon, he'll get better this way.
Its way better than Hikari did with anyone as a matter of fact, I think the Iris contrast definetly made Hikari more fun to watch.

The Misty and May interactions were by far the worst, they barely had any scenes with each other and barely ever said more than a few lines to one another. Its almost as if the writers avoided having May and Misty interact as much as possible, even going as far as to making Misty interact with Max instead during her final episode appearance in the series.
Well, the final nail in the coffin', as if anyone doubted Mijuwott was staying basic, or to say, unevolved, Hydro Pump officially made him Pochama V.2.0.
I'm sure The 4th is rejoicing......
Nice to see they haven't COMPLETELY forgotten Shiny Pokemon exist, I didn't care for the Takeshi/Brock flashback but whatevs.
Rewatched the episode just two little thingies
-Pansage passed the entire episode just being useless and cute, poor thing, same as Pikachu and Axew but they are always out
-Poor other pokemon get no food
I really enjoyed the episode for something that was supposed to be a "filler out Onix DERP", Oshawott and Piplup developing new moves from their rivalry was cool.
I just hope other pokemon get to do something, next episode we see Scraggy with the Larvitar but in the Dragonite episode they are both figthning the Dragonite, specially Hikari pokemon since she is leaving soon, maybe they will shine in the tournament.
i'm just glad that we ain't seeing riots from seeing Kingler again...when it's not Ash's.
Currently writing: The Missing Link!
Well I am glad that oshawatt got HP, As for the palpitoad ash already has a Ground-Dark type pokemon with black glasses XD
so, Palpitoad is useless with 3 moves only -_- it might get earthquake cause if it does it would be awesome or maybe muddy water or a nice poison move.
Wait still no confirmation on what water move Piplup used?
