On Bulbapedia's article for EP068 "Make Room for Gloom", the Trivia section says this:

Ash mentions that Brock will find plenty of more girls that will reject him. To be exact, Brock found over five hundred more girls that rejected him in his tenure in the anime.

Is this accurate? How many times did Brock get rejected by women over the course of the anime?

  • And yes, I realize that there are hundreds of episodes with Brock in them and that most of us don't have time to go through them. But apparently somebody claims to have done so to get an exact count, and I'm willing to be patient to know if they're right answer. I'll give as big of a bounty as I can if someone gives a satisfactory answer. – Thunderforge Feb 12 '18 at 3:44

    $counter = 0; foreach($jennySis as $jenny){$counter += 1;} foreach($joySis as $joy){$counter += 1;} that gets you probably 50% of them – Memor-X Feb 12 '18 at 3:46

    "Rejected" is a fairly loaded term. There are times in which the woman will make her disinterest in Brock crystal clear; there are times when another character will simply pull his ear (or one of his Pokemon attack him) to get him to knock the flirting off. If we don't count any of the times in which he's had his ear pulled by Misty or Max, or when he was attacked by his own Pokemon, then the assumed number of times - practically every time he runs into Nurse Joy or Officer Jenny - can naturally come down quite a bit, since it's rare that either Misty or Max leaves this unchecked. – Makoto Feb 12 '18 at 4:49

    The trivia was added by Skulblaka Shurtugal on 3 December 2010. However, I didn't find it being disputed either on the article's talk page or author's talk page. Unfortunately, I'm afraid the author has been inactive since 2011. – Aki Tanaka Feb 12 '18 at 5:02
  • I don't think any woman on the face rejected brock.. it was May and other team mates who used pull him off holding his year.. I could be wrong – Surya Tej Jul 10 '18 at 18:39
