'''The Heartbreak of Brock''' (Japanese: ''' ニドリーノニドリーナ!タケシのバラいろのひび!?''' ''Nidorino and Nidorina! {{tt|Takeshi's|Brock's}} Rose Colored Days!?''), is the 198th Episode of the [[Pokémon anime]]. It was first broadcast in Japan on May 17, 2001 and was first broadcast in the United States on April 13, 2002.
{{Ash}} and {{ashfr|the gang}} find their way to another town. Ash is wondering where the [[Pokémon Center]] might be, so he asks a local woman. {{an|Brock}} has a crush on her, like every other woman, but {{an|Misty}} pulls him away.
Brock is later at a park filling up a pot with water. A {{p|Nidorina}} comes by for a drink, followed close behind by a frantic girl, who trips and nearly falls into the fountain. However, Brock catches her before she falls in. As the girl looks up at her protector, she falls in love with Brock instantly. Brock is confused and intimidated by the sudden affection from this stranger, which Misty notices. Brock is still left speechless, so Misty pulls him out to have a little talk about the situation, where she finds out that Brock has no actual dating experience and has no idea what to do. Coming back, the girl invites them to her house, where her father is also waiting. They do the introductions, the girl being [[Temacu]]. It seems like Temacu is the daughter of a local [[Pokémon Professor]]. She invites them to stay for dinner and some [[tea]], and Misty again goes and has a conversation with Brock. Temacu takes them for a walk around her house, talking about her Nidorina, {{p|Nidorino}} and some of the family's other Pokémon. That's when {{TRT}} storms in to get a steal. They catch the Nidorina, Nidorino, {{AP|Pikachu}} and the other Pokémon. Ash sends out {{AP|Totodile}} to try to free them and [[Jessie]] attempts to counter-attack with {{TP|Jessie|Arbok}}. The match ends in one hit, Totodile winning. [[James]] sends out {{TP|James|Weezing}} to use {{m|SmokeScreen}} and they try to take off. Everyone tries to find the three and Temacu tries to find Brock and ends up getting caught in some rope. Misty sends out {{TP|Misty|Poliwhirl}} to use {{m|Bubble}} to get rid of the smoke. Ironically, the stolen Pokémon are there, but Temacu is gone.

* {{p|Meowth}} ({{TRM}})
* When [[Temacu]] fantasizes about marrying {{an|Brock}}, she dreams about him [[List of clothing in the anime|wearing a white tuxedo]] to their wedding. This is actually the same tuxedo Brock is seen wearing in ''[[EP169|Beauty and the Breeder]]''. The only difference is the addition of the rose on his chest.
* This is one of the few times that the protagonists were able to recognize Team Rocket in their disguises (Misty was able to recognize Jessie on the spot).
* Temacu's father calls [[Jessie]] by her name, but he is not supposed to know her name.
===Dub edits===
* In the Brazilian Portuguese dub, Temacu's name is changed to Temako, to avoid a profanity in the end of her name.
