    Fame Checker

    The debate regarding Brock's absence and removal from the main cast prior to the Johto departures is obscure. An interview with the former Pokémon anime director and storyboard artist Masamitsu Hidaka discusses the reasoning behind Brock's removal from the cast and eventual return. He revealed the reasons behind the replacement of Brock was due to continuity of the series and the globalization of the series could measure in debate about his attributed squinting eyes. In response, Tracy Sketchit was thrown into the mix fitting a "safe side" characterization for a featured Trainer fit into the cast. Brock's return was due to the liberties in which Brock's captivating characterization was depicted within the series.
