Hikari -> Dawn
Upon his return home after journeying through Johto, Brock was dismayed to find that his mother had returned and commandeered the gym, turning the Rock-type haven into a brightly decorated {{t|Water}}-type den. Brock battled her for the honor of Rock-types and won, promising his brother [[Forest]] that he would become Gym Leader someday.
After that, Brock continued to follow Ash through [[Hoenn]], along with their new friends [[May (anime)|May]] and [[Max]], and then through Kanto again as Ash took on the [[Battle Frontier]]. He left extremely briefly when the Advanced Generation dissolved to visit his home, and is now traveling with Ash and [[HikariDawn (anime)|HikariDawn]] in [[Sinnoh]].
Brock is among the longest-lived main characters in the anime, only being absent from the Orange Islands season and thus ranked under only the permanent characters of [[Ash Ketchum|Ash]], [[Ash's Pikachu|Pikachu]], [[Jessie]], [[James]], and [[Meowth (Team Rocket)|Meowth]]. Because of this, some fans believe he is too worn-out as a character and should be removed from the cast as soon as possible. Others believe he has established himself as a permanent character, and do not see him being removed from the cast any time in the near future.
