From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Temacu (Japanese: ヒメカ Himeka) is the character of the day in The Heartbreak of Brock.
She has quite an unusual name. She explained to Ash and his friends that it's a combination of the first letters of the following Pokémon: Teddiursa "Te" (Japanese: ヒメグマ Himeguma "ヒ" "Hi"), Mareep "ma" (Japanese: メリープ Merriep "メ" "me"), and Cubone "cu" (Japanese: カラカラ Karakara "カ" "ka").
Temacu is one of the few girls to fall in love with Brock. During the episode, while she was running to catch her Nidorina, she nearly tripped and almost fell into a fountain. Brock, who was nearby, caught her in time before she fell, however. Since that moment, she "knew" that she had to marry Brock and even started to picture what their wedding would be like. Instead of Brock being overjoyed by this, he acted very confused and unsure.
However, Temacu's feeling for Brock didn't last long. Team Rocket attacked her father's laboratory and thought they had captured a Pokémon; instead, they had actually caught Temacu. As she tried to get out of the balloon, she nearly fell again but this time James was there to catch her. This caused her to now fall in love with James instead and now she wanted to marry him. Feeling that they could get their hands on the Pokémon at the lab through Temacu's infatuation with James, Jessie and Meowth forced him to play along, even if it meant he had to marry her. James was not at all comfortable with this idea.
To execute their plan further, Team Rocket changed outfits and Temacu made up a story that James had saved her from the "terrorists" when she introduced him to her father.
Once Brock found out that Temacu had now fallen for James, he was crushed, since by this point he was starting to fall for Temacu. Soon, Misty pulled off Jessie's disguise and due to this, Team Rocket ran away. When they were trying to escape, Misty ordered her Poliwhirl to attack James with Water Gun. Temacu, worried for James' safety, jumped in front of the Water Gun attack and then fainted.
Later on, her father explained to Ash and his friends that she recently saw her cousin get married and that's why she was so obsessed with getting married herself. Soon, Temacu came to her senses to and, yet again, fell in love with someone else. This time it was her doctor, who had helped her to return her to her senses.
|| Nidorina ♀
| Temacu's Nidorina was first seen drinking out of a fountain before her owner was about to fall in. She was then seen taking a stroll with Temacu's Nidorino before she was captured by Team Rocket. She was later saved.
Nidorina's only known move is Tackle.
|| The Heartbreak of Brock
- One of the coordinators that weer seen on TV in Staging a Heroes' Welcome! had a striking similarity to Temacu, as her fantasy appearance.
- Coincidentally, Oscar and Andi own the evolved forms of Temacu's Pokémon, and look-alikes of them appeared on the same screen.
- Temacu, along with Wilhelmina, Natalie, Lucy, Holly, Autumn, and Narissa, is one of the few females to fall in love with Brock, although she gets over it at the end of the episode.
- In the Brazilian Portuguese dub, her name is Temako, to avoid a profanity in the end of the name. Her name, in that dub, comes from Tentacool, Mareep and Raikou.
