Brock (Japanese: タケシ Takeshi) is the Gym Leader of Pewter City's Gym, known officially as the Pewter Gym. He hands out the Boulder Badge to Trainers who defeat him in battle. He specializes in training Template:Type2 Pokémon.

In the games

Brock's title is "The Rock-Solid Pokémon Trainer." Brock is quite proud of his rock-hard willpower, and uses Rock-type Pokémon to complement this.

Brock is one of the few truly serious professional Pokémon Trainers in the Pewter City area. He's tough, people respect him, and most admire him. Supposedly, it's hard to get him to laugh or drop his serious demeanor, but when he does, he can't stop.

Brock likes to dig for fossils in Mt. Moon, which is possibly how he ended up getting a Kabutops and Omastar in Generation II (in the Pokémon Adventures manga, he is stated to have found Kabutops as a Kabuto guarding the Pewter Museum of Science).

In addition to the Boulder Badge, Brock gives out TM34 (Bide) in Generation I, no TM in Generation II, TM39 (Rock Tomb) in Generation III, and TM80 (Rock Slide) in Generation IV. In both Generation I and III, a Trainer will not allow anyone to pass onto Route 3 unless they have defeated Brock. Instead, when someone attempts to leave, he will lead them all the way back to the Pewter Gym.

In Yellow Version, he speaks directly to the player about his training to become a Pokémon Breeder after he is defeated, despite breeding not being present in the game. This is a reference to the goals of his anime counterpart.

In HeartGold and SoulSilver Versions, after he is defeated and all 16 badges have been obtained, he can be found in Diglett's Cave near Pewter City on any day between noon and 3 PM, and he will offer his Pokégear number if he is spoken to there. If he is called on Saturday nights, he will be up for a rematch at the Fighting Dojo. After his Pokégear number has been obtained, he will reappear in Diglett's Cave every day between 5 PM and 8 PM, and the player can have a photograph taken with him there. If he is spoken to in Diglett's Cave on a Saturday, he will offer to trade a Rhyhorn that knows Thunder Fang for a Bonsly.

Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal

  • Before battle
"Wow, it's not often that we get a challenger from Johto. I'm Brock, the Pewter Gym Leader. I'm an expert on Rock-type Pokémon. My Pokémon are impervious to most physical attacks. You'll have a hard time inflicting any damage. Come on!"
  • When defeated
"Your Pokémon's powerful attacks overcame my rock-hard defense... You're stronger than I expected... Go ahead--take this Badge."
  • After battle
"<Player>, thanks. I enjoyed battling you, even though I am a bit upset. That Boulder Badge will make your Pokémon even more powerful."
"The world is huge. There are still many strong trainers like you. Just wait and see. I'm going to become a lot stronger too."

Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen

"I took you for granted, and so I lost. As proof of your victory, I confer on you this...the official Pokémon League Boulder Badge."

  • After being defeated
"Wait! Take this with you."
"A TM, Technical Machine, contains a technique for Pokémon. Using a TM teaches the move it contains to a Pokémon. A TM is only good for one use. So, when you use one, pick the Pokémon carefully. Anyways... TM39 contains Rock Tomb. It hurls boulders at the foe and lowers its speed."

Yes: "I would like to have a Pokémon battle against you! Give me a call on Saturday nights!"'
Pokégear Phone
  • Calling the player:
"This is Brock. Oh hey, how are you doing? There are so many different types of Pokémon in the world. As you could guess, I like Rock-type Pokémon best. They're solid and rough, and yet somewhat brittle at the same time. Once you've really gotten to know them, they're quite cute. What do you think?"
  • Calling him:
"Hello... What's up? I'm doing great! I can take a break on Saturday evenings, if you want to give me a call again then."

Brock in the anime

In the anime, like later Gym Leaders, Brock appeared primarily as an opponent to Ash in his debut episode; unlike later Gym Leaders, he requested to join Ash on his journey, aiming to be the world's greatest Pokémon Breeder. In doing so, Brock left the Gym in the hands of his father, Flint, who had finally revealed himself to have returned from his journey. Brock advised Ash throughout the Kanto series, then left briefly during the Orange Archipelago arc to assist Professor Ivy. He returned to Ash's side in Johto, and with brief returns to Pewter City at the end of each series, joined him for his journeys in Hoenn and Sinnoh as well; however, he now wants to become a Pokémon Doctor.

Brock mainly provides an advisory role to the other main characters of the anime, being several years older than the rest of them. His knowledge of Pokémon battles is great, causing him to often referee matches between Ash and others. Brock also fancies himself as something of a ladies' man, though each time he hits on someone he is either rejected outright, pulled away by Misty or Max, or, most recently, Poison Jabbed by his Croagunk.

In the manga

In The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga

Main article: In The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga

As the manga series The Electric Tale of Pikachu is based on the Pokémon anime, Brock is a commonly recurring character, although he does not appear in every chapter and he does not travel with Ash and Misty constantly.

Ash and Brock in Magical Pokémon Journey

In the Magical Pokémon Journey manga

Brock, along with Ash and Misty, make cameo appearances in bonus chapters of the Magical Pokémon Journey manga. In the bonus chapters, Brock and co. have mistakenly wandered into the world Magical Pokémon Journey is set in. The bonus chapters chronicle their attempts to return to their own world (of the anime) and their encounters with various aspects of the Magical Pokémon Journey canon which differ from the anime's canon (such as the use of Poké Balls).

In the movie manga adaptations

Brock and his Geodude

Brock debuts in Onix is On! of the Red, Green & Blue chapter, however he is mentioned earlier by Blue in Wanted: Pikachu! about being bored by no-one being able to defeat him, or even get past the preliminaries. To gain access to Brock, a Trainer must win several rounds of battles against special Trainers of the Gym, and all of those battles are watched by him from a special room.

Brock is a brave Trainer, and he assists Erika and Misty in their battles against Team Rocket. He also gave Yellow a Graveler after the good Gym Leaders of Kanto battled Agatha's mind-controlling Gastly. However, he is also shown to be quick to anger and restless in his search for a good battle, and when discovering that Red's Pika, the only remaining Pokémon of his, was disobedient, deemed his wins "dumb luck" and sought for a finisher attack instantly. However, when the boy begins to gain his Pokémon's trust, it chooses to fight for him and defeats his Onix.

After Blaine figured out that Red must have been at Mt. Moon before going missing, Brock volunteered to search there, since Mt. Moon was closest to Pewter City. He then found a cast of Red frozen in ice there and contacted Blaine. Before all of the information could be exchanged, he found out that Pewter City was under attack by a group of Bruno's Machop that was searching for Brock's Boulder Badge, and he left to protect it.

A few years later, he, along with Erika and Misty, traveled to Johto for the Gym Leader Tournament at the Indigo Plateau, where he faced off against the expert of the newly discovered Steel-type, Jasmine. He lost the match and later fought against Team Rocket on the Magnet Train.

Aside from being a Gym Leader, Brock also works as a security guard at the Pewter Museum of Science.

Onix
Main article: Brock's Onix

Onix is arguably Brock's most powerful Pokémon and is apparently well known for its speed, which causes shock waves when it moves. Onix was first used in battle against Red's Pika. Despite the type advantage, Onix was defeated by the small electric type after it came to fight for Red of its own will. Three years later, Onix was sent out by Brock to use as a bridge when a bridge in the Tohjo Falls went out while Brock, Erika and Misty were heading to Johto, during which Misty is joined by Suicune. However, it itself collapsed when they were all attacked by a large group of Zubat, Golbat and Crobat. Once the group finally made it to the Indigo Plateau, Brock used Onix in his battle with Jasmine. It lost to Jasmine's Steelix, which he initially mistook as an Onix of a different variety due to its rock covering used to hide the fact that it was a new, undiscovered species at the time.
