I just started watching Pokemon Black and White, then I noticed that Brock and Dawn are not anywhere to be found. Or at least Brock because he's always with Ash (and their extra friend) (he did leave once to stay with Professor Ivy, didn't stay long. I wander if he still would curl up in a corner when he heard Ivy's name, you know, if he was still on the show!) Why would they get rid of Brock? He would always ask out every girl he saw, then get knocked out by a Poison Jab or pulled by the ear by Misty or Max. And if the People running the TV had get rid of a friend of Ash's, why Brock? Why not just Dawn? They got rid of Misty, May and Max. Now Ash is stuck with Iris.
