* OutOfFocus: For being the one traveling companion who was part of the main cast for ''more than ten'' years (only dropping out very briefly in the Orange Islands arc), they sure didn't treat him as well as they could have.

* OutOfFocus: For being From Johto onward, when he began to receive fewer focus episodes and usually functioned as either a walking gag. It's likely the one traveling companion who was part of only reason that he stuck around so long is that the main cast for ''more than ten'' years (only dropping out very briefly in writers remembered [[InternetBackdraft what happened]] when he got PutOnABus during the Orange Islands arc), season. It seems they sure didn't treat him eventually caught onto this, as well as they could have.Brock finally left the show after ''Diamond & Pearl''.


%%* GreenEyes: Except for a very early episode where he had blue eyes, he's always been depicted with it. ''Best Wishes'' final episode confirmed it.


* MsFanservice: [[https://media.retrojunk.com/file/2a0b03e13dea6be5f4b2faba5a345aebae6275272e61f24eec52179612195c94ab13e67039071a/image/6e8_458858fb06.jpg God ''damn''!]] Apparently, BuxomIsBetter. And boy, ShesGotLegs.

** Played completely straight, however, by the Eterna City Jenny from "A Secret Sphere of Influence", who arrests Nando for supposedly stealing the Adamant Orb and flatly refuses to believe that anyone else could have done it. When presented with a photograph of a Sunflora (actually Meowth disgused as one) stealing the Orb, she declares that it's all the proof she needs. Despite everyone else in the room pointing out that Nando probably isn't the only person in the museum who has a Sunflora, she remains convinced that she's right and spends the entire episode interrogating him instead of searching for the stolen Orb, forcing the main characters to hunt Team Rocket down and get it back.

* KickingAssInAllHerFinery: Prior to the Unova seasons, Officer Jennies wore heels. Not exactly practical (or even comfortable) footwear to have in law enforcement, but they still manage. Its completely averted come ''XY'', where Jennies were re-designed with more practical police attire.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Most of them, but especially the Jennies in "Pokémon Emergency!" and "Spinarak Attack". The former even gives Ash a free ride to the Pokémon Center!

A cute, pink, balloon-like Pokémon who becomes a recurring character up until the Hoenn arc. Desiring to sing its beautiful song, Jigglypuff randomly pops up now and again to attempt its dream. However, its power causes people to fall asleep, and oblivious to this side effect, Jigglypuff assumes its victims are humiliating it, prompting it to use its marker pen/microphone to draw on their faces.

* WouldntHitAGirl: Brock zig-zags this trope. In one scene of the first season, Misty kicked him in the face and he never attempted to fight back. Another episode, however, showed him hitting Misty many times after she kept teashing him about his crush on Melanie.
