In the anime

Pewter Gym in its first appearance
The inside of the Gym in its first appearance

The Pewter Gym was first seen in Showdown in Pewter City in the anime. It is a stone building apparently set apart from the rest of the city. Brock waits inside in the dark for challengers, sitting on a stone pedestal as he does in the games; however, unlike in the games, no other Trainers have been seen as part of the Gym aside from Brock's family. The battlefield is littered with jagged rocks and boulders, and a balcony along the edge above provides spectators a spot to watch Gym battles. Despite being a Rock-type Gym, the building has sprinklers for fire safety, which Ash uses to gain an advantage against Onix.

The Gym is an important part of Brock's family, and Brock, his brothers and sisters, and his parents live in a large house behind the Gym. Brock's father, Flint, was the Gym Leader before Brock, and Brock inherited the Gym as part of his family responsibilities when his parents left. While Brock was a strong, respected Gym Leader, he did not like being one, and only did it as an obligation to his family. When Flint came back, Brock returned the title of Gym Leader to him, and left to travel with Ash and pursue his own dream of becoming a Pokémon Breeder.

When Brock's mother, Lola, returned, the Gym was turned into a combination Water-type and Rock-type Gym, and the battlefield was redecorated, including the addition of a pool in the middle. However, Brock returned in A Family That Battles Together Stays Together! and was shocked to see how his mother has changed. Both he and his younger brother Forrest take pride in the Gym's strong reputation as a Rock-type Gym. He battled his mother to restore the Gym to being only Rock-type again.

It was subject to a second remodeling attempt in Grating Spaces. At that time, a storage room was seen where the Gym keeps many Poké Balls, presumably containing different Rock-type Pokémon. In its subsequent appearances, the Gym's name has been removed from the entrance.

While traveling with Ash, Brock kept Pokémon he owns but does not currently have on his party at the Gym. He has had his Steelix, Geodude, Crobat, Forretress, Ludicolo and Marshtomp at the Gym. Flint's Golem is also kept at the Gym, and Lola keeps her many Water-type Pokémon there.

Pewter Gym was featured in Nibi Gym - The Greatest Crisis Ever!, in which the Gym was going to be closed down after Forrest lost to Nurse Joy. After winning a battle against Brock and another battle with Forrest, Nurse Joy allowed the Gym to stay open, with Forrest as its official Gym Leader. The Gym is notably cleaner than in its previous appearance, with all paintings removed. In addition, the battlefield has more pointed rocks while the area around it is a blue shiny floor, possibly to reflect Lola's penchant for water.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

The main arena

Pewter Gym debuted in Onix is On! of the Red, Green & Blue chapter. Here, Red and Blue win the Boulder Badge after they defeat several rounds of Trainers and finally Brock. The outside of the Gym has the default design, but the inside consists of a boxing ring where the Trainers battle, a space for the crowd around it and a room with windows where Brock can see the battles.

These are the Pokémon shown in the Gym, from Brock and the other Gym Trainers.

Trivia

  • In the anime, the Pewter Gym has tied for having been run by the most Gym Leaders, with a total of four different Leaders: Brock, Flint, Lola, and Forrest. Viridian Gym has also had four Leaders in the anime: Giovanni, Jessie, James, and Agatha, although Jessie and James were a Double Battle. If Misty's sisters were counted as one Leader each, Cerulean Gym would also tie with them.
  • For unexplained reasons, Pewter Gym seemed to have passed the PIA's inspection despite having a bad paint job and the Rock Pokémon nearly drowning in the pool, whereas in Cerulean Blues, it is implied that any Gym that fails the cleanliness, safety, and coolness factors of the inspection is shut down.
