It's already started. With rumors of certain old Gym leaders appearing in the new games in some sort of battle facility, people think it will somehow carry over into the anime. Here is why it won't:
- Blue is said to appear, but in the anime Gary is a researcher and no longer a Gym leader.
- Brock is said to appear, but in the anime he is a doctor. That being said I wouldn't rule out a Brock cameo for 2-3 episodes or so in late BW.

I've noticed there are a lot of younger anime fans coming to the fandom now who are only like 13-14 years old. So I ask myself, how old were these people when the anime first started in 1998? They were born pretty much at the same time the franchise started.

My only gripe is he didn't come to Bulbagarden back in 2005 when I did. I could have used him (yes, I enjoy using people with similar interests), to my advantage during the old debate threads about characters back
