Not only that, but whatever happened to him being a Rock-type Gym Leader? In the filler, he said that he would never turn his back on Rock-types. Has he even used Sudowoodo in recent episodes?

I totally disagree with Calypso at one point. Brock wasn’t useless in the Johto Series.
How anyone can find Brocks girl obsessing remotely entertaining anymore is beyond me. It's the same process that is reiterated every episode.. :S

The Pokemon Breeder status is meaningless; he barely does anything, other than raise a few baby Pokemon, that even merits him as a Breeder, let alone an "excellent" one. I basically think it’s an attempt on the writers part to make it seem like he actually does something other than providing redundant information, or being a "great cook" (which basically proves how pointless he is, if you listed that as one of his main assets and contributions to the show.)

I do agree on the fact that he needs more opportunities to shine, however.

Not only is this pretty absurd, but it would conflict with Ash’s main goal in the anime. Why would we want to see the same Gym Leader being battled repeatedly? :/

I've just realised I completely repeated what you said in my earlier point xD. Obviously, I agree with this. The routine is stale, and if they really need him to fill a “comedic” role, they could at least vary the whole procedure a little.

I really wish he would use Sudowoodo more frequently. He seldom uses his Pokemon, and when he does, he tends to favour Croagunk. Although, it did learn Hammer Arm in a recent Japanese episode, which was refreshing, albeit a little unexpected.

Brock is pretty much the closest thing on Pokemon to a pedo there is so I think we should keep him!!!
PLUS We still don't know what race he is!

Brock's entire purpose in the show could be done with a guidebook, hamburger helper, and a book of quotes from famous athletes telling people to never give up on their dreams.

They ruined our first gym leader.

Also, it doesn't seem that he breeds two Pokemon to make an egg. He just gets one.

His girl love thing is just to old. He's had it since the first season. And how can you tell which Nurse Joy is which?

Brock only uses three Pokemon. A happiny that should've evolved by now, a sudowoodo with no power, and a croagunk.

Brock is only there to cook food. He acts to much like a mom (See the episode when Pachirisu gets sick), and is in love with all girls.

The fact is that this is a kid show and i dont think making a violent plot change (no matter how boring the routine is so far) is going to make things for the better

Happiny can only evolve if Brock has an Oval Stone. Besides, do you think the pokemon franchise is going to add that into an episode any time soon?
Sudowoodo has at least some power...would you like to be on the receiving end of its double edge (lets not forget sudowoodo has the ability Rock Head, preventing recoil damage)? Sure in the episode where Sudowoodo helps fight Team Galactic fighting Golbat is a piece of cake but at least give Sudowoodo some props.
What do you have against Croagunk? I think its one of my favorite pokes in Brocks current party. Toxicroak would be a nice addition if Croagunk evolved but that doesnt mean Croagunk isnt a useful resource to Brock's party.

Ive seen the episode where Pachirisu gets sick and at least he can help the pokemon become healthy unlike Ash and Dawn. The mom thing is a good thing because i doubt you would want to depend on Ash or Dawn's cooking (Dawn only really makes poffins and Ash cant cook for s**t). Plus Brock is a Pokemon BREEDER which makes the mom thing, as well as taking care of pokemon, his job. Well according to bulbapedia Brock is still 15 and i guess the animators believe falling in love with all the girls comes with the territory but that doesnt make brock completely useless.

Thats my opinion and im sticking to that

They will keep brock because he is the only character with non entirely white skin. You may calk the show racist if it kicks out Brock. I'm pretty sure this came up before...

Nah, they just left him out in the Giratina movie.xD
If they get rid of Brock who's gonna cook the food? Who's the guy who's gonna blurt out when there's an evolution, "IT'S EVOLVING...!"

Yeah there's no way they get rid of Brock.

Am I the only one who saw Doc Brock? OK, even though that the show is mainly focused on Ash and Dawn, they still need him! He's a father-like figure to them! You always need someone to be at least like your dad! Hell-llo!!!!!!

Brock scares the kiddies.

Although, I think he should somehow find Professor Ivy again and they should go live together..

They should have Brock do more. He's funny, but he should show his talent too.

Well, let's not forget that he's not so much a Pokemon battler or Contest participant. As said in the anime, he's a Pokemon Breeder. Which... can't really do much in the anime, tbh.

I'd like this idea, yes. But only for a short amount of time. Like they did Tracy.

Last episode of Pokemon? Those four words can go together like that?

On Happiny evolving: Happiny hasn't evolved for the same reason that James's Mime Jr. hasn't evolved. She has an Oval Stone that Brock made for her and Mime Jr. knows Mimic, so logically both are capable of evolving, but Brock and James never let them battle. Hence they can not evolve.
