Best Pokegirl hasn’t been seen in 10 years but Misty is not her name.

May deserves to reappear. I think she has the strongest Pokemon team, after Ash, maybe tied with Misty (Mega).
Would love it if Dawn or Iris returnes too.

Anyway, as for this episode I am hoping that Sudowoodo is no the only Pokemin we see from Brock.
I want Azurill and Croagunk/Marshtomp/Foretrres/Chansey/

Nobody else is appearing in Alola, not even Serena or Iris who never had a cameo. It's pretty obvious these cameos were made for the 20th anniversary and then the Let's Go games, hence why only Misty/Brock appeared.

Kinda wish that Misty and Brock appeared last generation, when the animation was better and a lil more mature. This cartoony Gen has disappointed me. I stopped watching months back. Dont even know how many episodes I missed. but ill watch again when they reappear.

I lowkey hoped that Brock and her would meet! She's definitely one of the most beautiful women in the anime and Brock would be head over heels for her. Maybe Brock has finally met 'the one' and might end up staying in Alola with her. Hmmmmmm.....

I don't think the writers wanted Serena and Misty in the same episode...for obvious reasons, lol.

And as said, it wasn't the 20th anniversary till 2017 when SM had begun, and Let's Go just came out this November.

You do know PokéShipping is literally fandumb/dub-only, right?

Misty is as attracted to Ash as she likes bug pokémon

It's not quite dub-only, but 4kids did add rather a lot of subtext. Besides, how else do you explain certain bits of the Orange Islands?

Also, we aren't supposed to bring this up here.

I wonder whether the battle between brock and olivia would be completed and there will be a winner after they team up to defeat TR or it will be left incomplete just like many before.

So, based off the summary, it seems Brock and Olivia's battle is going to be interrupted by Team Rocket. Go figure. To be honest, though, I'm not entirely surprised that their battle might be interrupted. It keeps the writers from having to pick a winner, thereby having to pick which of them is the stronger Trainer. I'm sure the fans will be arguing over that, anyway.

Only the fourth hundredth time this has happened. No biggie for people.

I do not think, that this would have matter much. Serena would have probably didn't even talk to her. That girl was such a passive character that barley interacted with anyone.
Well depends, Misty and May barely interacted either. Misty and May met 3 different times in AG, I don't think they ever shared more than a few lines together, lol. The writers really did a poor job, Misty spent more time interacting with Max or Tracey back then.

I think BW was the only time an old character besides Ash came along and gained much chemistry with the new cast, likely because in that case, the old character didn't have much else to do but immerse (Dawn actually didn't even have many running gags to shoot around, compared to the OS lot who have relied on it a lot this series). They couldn't even pad her episodes with Team Rocket in that series.

I do add DP may's cameo as well she interacted a lot with dawn and was big help in her getting over her fear of losing first rounds there is a reason her cameo is still considered the best ones of all, as for dawn her interactions with iris were also good and well she didn't needed gags to rely upon unlike some other characters, that's why she is considered the best rounded girl. TR was too busy with operation tempest so they didn't met with dawn, still wished she was around for whole operation tempest just like cynthia was, i would have liked seeing her reaction to improved TR in BW series.

I can kinda see why Dawn is rated well by fans, since she was one of those characters who was put into the usual formulas and was most liable to put up a legitimate show with it. She did the contest arc and actually lost if she didn't improve enough, she interacted well with most characters except Brock, even against Team Rocket, who were at their most flanderized by the time of DP, she at least often took part in a bit of the humour and sarcasm.

Last Generation is weirdly the only one in which Brock & Misty did not appear in any form in both games & anime. DP had Misty's fishing lure & BW the Charizard flashback to give her at least small presence. Whilst on the games side there was FRLG, HGSS, & the World Tournament in B2W2. Counting LGPE as semi-gen 7 then Gen 6 was the only one they're completely MIA. Probably coincidence, but it did felt like at times the writers were purposely keeping Serena in the dark about the existence of earlier girls.

Olivia's basically a female Brock, older rock type specialist with lousy luck in finding a man. Part of me half-suspects they created the character to begin with for this episode. Obviously not really but it is kinda on the nose just how much the 2 have in common.

I think XY didn’t mention anything from past series actually but I could be mistaken. I don’t think the writers did it on purpose.

The director did claim it was an oversight and Japan isn't big on sarcasm. It also apparently had those two reporters from Spell of the Unown.

XY is technically the only saga Brock doesn't appear in, in any form. In BW he got the flashbacks twice (once from Dawn remembering him, the other during the Charizard ep), and he appeared in a Cilan special.
