'''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 [[Badge#Boulderbadge|Boulderbadge]] to [[Pokémon trainer|trainers]] who defeat him. He specializes in {{t|Rock}}-type [[Pokémon]].

In the [[Pokémon anime|anime]], Brock is a [[Pokémon Breeder]] who is a [[Ash's friends|close friend]] and traveling companion of [[Ash Ketchum|Ash]]. His Japanese voice actor is うえだゆうじ ''[[Yūji Ueda]]'', and his English voice actors are [[Eric Stuart]] ([[EP005]]-[[AG145]]) and [[Bill Rogers]] ([[AG146]]-present). Some notes on official sketches of his character set his age at 15 at the start of the series.

He originally trained [[Rock (type)|Rock-type]] [[Pokémon]], but has, since [[EP006|the second episode he appeared in]], diversified. He is an experienced cook and caretaker by nature, so he always makes scrumptious food both [[Pokémon food|for Pokémon]] and for humans. One of his best known character traits is that he falls in love with every pretty woman he meets, particularly [[Officer Jenny]] and [[Nurse Joy]]. He has always held a supporting role in the series, usually contributing more in terms of wisdom and comedic antics than the action and [[Pokémon battle|battles]] of the series.
+
'''Brock''' (Japanese: '''タケシ''' ''Takeshi'') is the [[Gym Leader]] of [[Pewter City]]'s [[Gym]], known officially as the [[Pewter Gym]]. He gives the {{Badge|Boulder}} to {{pkmn|Trainer}}s who defeat him in {{pkmn|battle}}. He [[Type expert|specializes]] in {{type|Rock}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}.
   
Early on, he showed that he carries around a [[Badge#Boulderbadge|Boulder Badge]] for identification. He also has a [[Contest Pass]] for the [[Kanto]] region, though he only used it once. He should still have a [[Poké Ball#Generation II Poké Balls|Heavy Ball]], given to him by [[Kurt]] [[EP144|back in Johto]], but this has apparently been forgotten.
+
==In the games==
  +
Brock appears in {{game5|Red|Blue|Yellow|FireRed|LeafGreen}} as the [[Gym Leader]] of the [[Pewter Gym]], which is the first [[Gym]] that the {{player}} challenges on their {{pkmn|journey}}. He is one of the few truly serious professional [[Pokémon Trainer]]s in the [[Pewter City]] area, and many people respect and admire him. He is quite proud of his rock-hard willpower, and uses {{type|Rock}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} to complement this. He rarely laughs or drops his serious demeanor, but when he does, he finds it hard to stop. In his free time, he likes to dig for [[Fossil]]s in [[Mt. Moon]]. In addition to the {{badge|Boulder}}, Brock gives out {{TM|34|Bide}} in Red, Blue, and Yellow, {{TM|39|Rock Tomb}} in FireRed and LeafGreen, and {{TM|01|Headbutt}} in Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!.
   
Brock has had two notable musical appearances. One is the Japanese ending theme タケシのパラダイス ''[[Takeshi's Paradise]]'', which is about his love for women and his determination to find love despite often appearing foolish and getting heartbroken. There is a running joke about him singing this song often in the anime, since it's the only song he knows. The other is the [[Pokémon Karaokémon]] song ''[[Two Perfect Girls]]'', which is about his love of both Officer Jenny and Nurse Joy.
+
In Yellow, Brock mentions that he is training to become a {{tc|Pokémon Breeder}}, despite {{pkmn|breeding}} not being present in the game. This is a reference to the goals of his {{an|Brock|anime counterpart}}.
   
==Appearance==
+
Three years later, in {{game5|Gold|Silver|Crystal|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, Brock remains the Gym Leader of the Pewter Gym, which can be challenged at any point during the player's travels through [[Kanto]]. He is surprised to hear that the player is from the [[Johto]] [[region]], and happily accepts their challenge. While he doesn't give out a TM in Gold, Silver, and Crystal, he gives out {{TM|80|Rock Slide}} in HeartGold and SoulSilver.
[[Image:TakeshiAG.png|thumb|right|Brock in the Advanced Generation series]]
 
Brock's most notable feature about his appearance is that his eyes naturally appear closed. The rare times we see them open are when they are forced open unnaturally: from a hit with [[Ash's Charizard|Charmander]]'s {{m|Flamethrower}} in ''[[EP032|The Ninja Poké-Showdown]]'', when being hit in the back of the head by [[Jessie's Arbok|Arbok's]] tail in ''[[EP050|Who Gets to Keep Togepi?]]'', and when he makes a face for {{p|Larvitar}} in ''[[EP260|A Crowning Achievement]]''.
 
   
He also has tan skin, notably darker than the skin of any other major character in the series. Because of these traits, there is a heated debate about what race Brock is, as many think he may be black, Latino, or Asian.
+
In HeartGold and SoulSilver, after all 16 [[Badge]]s have been obtained, Brock can be found in [[Diglett's Cave]] near Pewter City on any day between noon and 3 PM, and will offer his [[Pokégear]] number if spoken to. If he is called on [[Days of the week|Saturday]] [[Time|night]]s, he will be up for a [[rematch]] at the [[Fighting Dojo]] in [[Saffron City]]. 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 [[photography|photograph]] taken with him there. If he is spoken to in Diglett's Cave on a Saturday, he will offer to [[trade]] a {{p|Rhyhorn}} that knows {{m|Thunder Fang}} for a {{p|Bonsly}}.
   
Brock is the tallest of [[Ash's friends]], and the closest to looking like an adult. Next to actual adult characters, however, it is clear that he is still a teenager.
+
In {{game|Black and White|s|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2|2}}, Brock appears alongside the other Gym Leaders of [[Kanto]] as an opponent in the [[Kanto Leaders Tournament]] at the [[Pokémon World Tournament]]. He also participates alongside the Gym Leaders of Kanto, [[Johto]], [[Hoenn]], [[Sinnoh]] and [[Unova]] in the [[World Leaders Tournament]], and other Rock-type experts in the Rock [[Type Expert Tournament]].
   
Not counting temporary outfits, he has worn [[List of clothing in the anime|three different outfits]] over the span of the anime, all of which have had the colors orange, green, and brown in them.
+
In Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, it is revealed that he obsessed with girls.
   
==Character==
+
===Fame Checker===
Brock is considered the most mature, wise and level-headed of the main characters, and he is debatably the most intelligent character as well. He often acts as an older brother and caretaker to the other characters and a voice of reason in disputes. He will usually place others before him and will help and support his friends even against his better judgment or at his own expense. While he is not shown to battle often, he can understand the situations and strategies in any [[Pokémon battle]], and often explains them to the other characters. His wisdom is possibly derived from how observant he is; he can tell just by sight how a Pokémon is feeling and spot the differences between the various [[Officer Jenny]] and [[Nurse Joy]].

Brock always carries books and maps with him, and thus is usually the character who knows where the group is headed and what they can do when they get there, though in [[Advanced Generation]] this role was mostly taken over by the [[PokéNav]]. He also carries a lot of other supplies, such as [[potion]]s and cookware, as well as practical tools like a brush and pocket knife; in ''[[EP009|The School of Hard Knocks]]'', the extent of his preparedness and comically large capacity of his [[bag]] was demonstrated, as he pulled out a table and full tea set out of his backpack. He is a domestic, and grooms not only his Pokémon but also those of his friends with whom he travels. He handles all the cooking and cleaning for his friends.

Despite this, all his maturity and rationality leaves him completely at the sight of a beautiful woman, as he falls in love with every pretty girl he meets. Brock has a desperate need for female companionship which grows worse as he fails to gain it. He will do anything and everything he thinks will impress women, which inevitably ends with his heart being broken every time. A few women have shown interest in him as well, such as [[Erika]], [[Wilhemina]], [[Temaku]] and [[Pike Queen Lucy|Lucy]], but most do not notice him or are not interested. No matter how many times he is disappointed, though, Brock remains determined to find a girl to start a relationship with, and has indicated several times he would stop traveling with Ash and stay with the girl if this happened. This behavior tends to wear on the nerves of other characters, and [[Misty]] and [[Max]] have both commonly dragged Brock away from women by his ear. Some of Brock's own Pokémon, most notably [[Brock's Croagunk|Croagunk]], have attacked him for getting too flirtateous with women.

His goals have played a passive role at best in his character's activity and development. Unlike other characters, who aspire to achieve and excel in competitive fields like [[Pokémon training]] and [[Pokémon contest]]s, his aim to become a great Pokémon Breeder is a quiet one and thus does not get showcased frequently. His other goal, to find a girlfriend, is similar to [[Team Rocket]]'s quest to capture [[Ash's Pikachu|Pikachu]] in that both are for comedy and thus doomed to fail. His role has always been purely one as support for other main characters, but some fans find this disappointing and want him to take a more active role in the series to make his character more interesting.

{{Party/Single
Not much is known about his early childhood, except that his first Pokémon was his [[Brock's Steelix|Onix]], which he received as a gift at the age of 10. Sometime after, his father, [[Flint (anime)|Flint]], left home to become a great [[Pokémon trainer|trainer]]. When he never returned, his mother, [[Lola]], left them as well, leaving Brock to take care of [[Brock's siblings|his siblings]], as well as their house and [[Pewter Gym]], by himself (though the English version of ''[[EP005|Showdown in Pewter City]]'' has Flint claim she died, and some speculate he was lying). However, Flint eventually returned home considering himself a failure, and instead of returning to his family he donned a disguise and sold rocks as souvenirs at the edge of town. After Brock awarded Ash the Boulderbadge, Flint came forward and confessed who he was. Flint took on the responsibilities of the Pewter Gym and his family, leaving Brock free to journey with Ash and [[Misty]].

Brock only became the Gym Leader because he felt it was his responsibility, and he admitted to Ash that he would rather care for Pokémon than battle them. It is his dream to become a great breeder, and when Flint took back control of the Gym, Brock was allowed to start following this dream. Most notably, he took care of a [[Brock's Vulpix|Vulpix]] that belonged to a breeder named [[Susie]]. Shortly before Vulpix was returned, Brock used it in a [[Pokémon Beauty Contest]].

Brock was also able to meet and make advances towards the many beautiful women he met. At first, he was more casual about approaching women, such as the [[Officer Jenny]] in [[Cerulean City]], and more modest as well, such as when he met [[Melanie]]. However, he became more open and passionate towards almost all single young women as time progressed.

Brock briefly left the show during the [[Pokémon: The Adventures in the Orange Islands|Orange Islands saga]] to work for [[Professor Ivy]] on [[Valencia Island]] and so is only seen in a couple of cameos in the [[Pokémon 2000|second movie]]. While there, something happened that will probably remain secret as Brock will only huddle and say "that name" whenever he is asked about it. (Brock does mention his work for her in ''[[Destiny Deoxys]]'', though this line was added in the dub.) After this incident, Brock returned to Kanto where he was found by [[Delia Ketchum]], who helped him to regain his strength. Brock then became a rival to [[Mimey]] until he rejoined Ash and Misty as the three traveled to [[Johto]]. They stayed together for the entire region, but at the end of this journey, the three went their separate ways, with Brock's help requested at home by his father.

Upon his return home, Brock was dismayed to find that his mother had returned and commandeered the gym, turning the Rock-type haven into a brightly decorated {{t|Water}}-type den. Brock battled her for the honor of Rock-types and won, promising his brother [[Forrest]] that he would become Gym Leader someday.

Brock uses three of these Pokémon in [[Pokémon battle|Single Battles]], four in [[Double Battle|Double]] and [[Rotation Battle]]s, and all six in [[Triple Battle]]s. Brock will always lead with his signature Pokémon, {{p|Onix}}.
   
After that, Brock returned to follow Ash through [[Hoenn]], along with their new friends [[May (anime)|May]] and [[Max]], and then through Kanto again as Ash took on the [[Battle Frontier]]. He left extremely briefly when the Advanced Generation dissolved to visit his home, and is now traveling with Ash and [[Dawn (anime)|Dawn]] in [[Sinnoh]].

Brock is among the longest-lived main characters in the anime, only being absent from the Orange Islands season and thus ranked under only the permanent characters of [[Ash Ketchum|Ash]], [[Ash's Pikachu|Pikachu]], [[Jessie]], [[James]], and [[Meowth (Team Rocket)|Meowth]]. Because of this, some fans believe he is too worn-out as a character and should be removed from the cast. Others believe he has established himself as a permanent character of the main cast, and do not see him being removed from the cast any time in the near future.

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.

In each game, there is only one other trainer in his gym: a [[Camper]], whose name is Jerry in [[Generation II]] and Liam in [[Generation III]]. This trainer usually isn't devoted to the Rock-type, and may use pure {{t|Ground}}-type Pokémon like {{p|Sandshrew}} and {{p|Diglett}}.

In addition to the Boulderbadge, Brock gives out [[TM34]] for {{m|Bide}} in the [[Generation I]] {{pkmn|games}}. In their [[Generation III]] remakes, he gives out [[TM39]] for {{m|Rock Tomb}} instead. In [[Generation II]], he doesn't give out a [[TM]]. In both the Generation I games and their Generation III remakes, one trainer will not allow for trainers to pass onto [[Route 3]] until they have defeated Brock. Instead, when trainers try to lead, he will lead them all the way back to the Pewter Gym.

===In the main series===
=In the TFG=
+
[[File:Brock anime SM.png|thumb|250px|Brock in the {{series|Sun & Moon}}]]
{{TFG ID|Next Quest|Brock|39}} appears as a rare trainer figure in the launch set, {{TFG|Next Quest}}, of the [[Pokémon Trading Figure Game]].
+
{{main|Brock (anime)}}
  +
In the {{pkmn|anime}}, like later Gym Leaders, Brock appeared primarily as an opponent to [[Ash Ketchum]] in his [[EP005|debut episode]]; unlike later Gym Leaders, he requested to join Ash on his {{pkmn|journey}}, aiming to be the world's greatest {{tc|Pokémon Breeder}}. In doing so, Brock left the Gym in the hands of his father, {{ka|Flint}}, who had finally revealed himself to have returned from his journey. Brock advised Ash throughout the [[Kanto]] [[region]], 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 {{an|Misty}} or [[Max]]; or, more recently, {{m|Poison Jab}}bed by his {{TP|Brock|Croagunk}}.
  +
  +
{{-}}
  +
===In Pokémon Origins===
  +
[[File:Brock Poké Balls PO.png|250px|thumb|left|Brock in Pokémon Origins]]
  +
In [[Pokémon Origins]], Brock is the only Gym Leader to have a key role other than [[Giovanni]]. Much like his role in the {{pkmn|games}}, Brock is the Gym Leader of the Pewter Gym.
  +
  +
Brock is first seen in ''[[PO01|File 1: Red]]'', watching a [[Pokémon battle]] between {{OBP|Red|Origins}} and {{OBP|Blue|Origins}}. After Red is defeated, Brock talks to Red and teaches him about the basics of Pokémon battling and training.
  +
  +
Later, Red discovers that Brock is the Gym Leader of Pewter City and goes to challenge Brock to earn his first Badge. There, they have a Gym battle in which Brock teaches Red about type matchups and strategy. Brock is shown to have many Pokémon, and selects Geodude and Onix when Red confirms that he has no [[Badge]]s. This implies that all Gym Leaders have Pokémon of varying strengths in reserve in order to keep each challenge a fair fight. After a tough battle, Red eventually defeats Brock by using all of his Pokémon to slowly weaken Brock's Onix until it falls. Having lost the battle, Brock awards Red with the Boulder Badge and {{TM|34|Bide}}.
  +
  +
Unlike most other characters in Pokémon Origins, whose designs were based on their {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}} designs, Brock's design is more akin to his {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}} design.

In a forest, the trio came across [[Erika]], a {{tc|Beauty}}, and a {{tc|Lass}}; and battled their {{p|Vileplume}}, {{p|Lotad}}, and {{p|Whimsicott}}, respectively. His Onix was ensnared in Whimsicott's {{m|Leech Seed}}, but Rosa's {{p|Snivy}} managed to free it. Afterwards, Brock healed Snivy with a [[Potion]] after it was injured by Lotad's {{m|Energy Ball}}. Brock's group soon came out victorious, after which Erika joined them on their journey.

{{main|Brock (anime)#In the Ash & Pikachu manga|Brock (anime)}}
  +
Brock appears in [[Ash & Pikachu]], a {{pkmn|manga}} based on the Pokémon anime. Like in the anime, he is a traveling companion of {{Ash}} alongside {{an|Misty}}.
  +
  +
===In The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga===
  +
{{main|Brock (anime)#In The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga|Brock (anime)}}
  +
As [[The Electric Tale of Pikachu]] is based on the [[Pokémon anime]], {{an|Brock}} is a commonly recurring character, although he does not appear in every chapter and he does not travel with {{Ash}} and {{an|Misty}} constantly.

  +
===In the Magical Pokémon Journey manga===
  +
[[File:Ash and Brock MPJ.png|thumb|200px|Ash and Brock in Magical Pokémon Journey]]
  +
Brock, along with {{Ash}} and {{an|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 {{pkmn|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 Ball]]s).

[[File:Brock Adventures.png|thumb|200px|Brock and his {{p|Geodude}}]]
  +
Aside from being a Gym Leader, Brock also works as a security guard at the [[Pewter Museum of Science]].
  +
  +
====History====
  +
====={{chap|Red, Green & Blue}}=====
  +
Brock debuts in ''[[PS005|Onix Is On!]]'', though he is mentioned earlier by {{adv|Blue}} in ''[[PS004|Wanted: Pikachu!]]'', who described him as 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 {{pkmn|battle}}s against [[Team Rocket]]. He also gave {{adv|Yellow}} a {{p|Graveler}} after the good [[Gym Leader]]s of [[Kanto]] battled [[Agatha]]'s mind-controlling {{p|Gastly}}. However, he is also shown to be quick to anger and restless in his search for a good battle, and when discovering that {{adv|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.
  +
  +
====={{chap|Yellow}}=====
  +
After [[Blaine]] figured out that Red must have been at [[Mt. Moon]] before going missing, Brock volunteered to search there, since Mt. Moon is 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 {{p|Machop}} that was searching for Brock's {{badge|Boulder}}, and he left to protect it.
  +
  +
====={{chap|Gold, Silver & Crystal}}=====
  +
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 {{type|Steel}}, [[Jasmine]]. He lost the match and later fought against Team Rocket on the [[Magnet Train]].

During the {{chap|Gold, Silver & Crystal}}, they used their {{m|Magnitude}} to stop the Magnet Train. However, the impact sent it off course, causing it to almost crash before it was saved by {{adv|Red}}'s Snorlax.}}

|desc={{p|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 {{adv|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 {{p|Suicune}}. However, it itself collapsed when they were all attacked by a large group of {{p|Zubat}}, {{p|Golbat}} and {{p|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.}}

===In the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga===
  +
Brock debuts in ''[[PM003|Take Out The Rival Onix!!]]''. Before {{OBP|Red|Pocket Monsters}} arrived in Pewter City, {{OBP|Green|Pocket Monsters}} got there and took Brock on. However, Brock was brutally strong as he managed to knock Green and his {{TP|Green|Charmander}} back into a window. The impact caused him to tell Red about Brock's strength. Despite Green's advice, Red decides to go to the Gym anyway. Red notices Brock's collection of Pokémon he had caught over the years and one of them turned out to be {{TP|Red|Clefairy}}'s cousin, {{TP|Red|Pikachu|Pikachu (Pocket Monsters)}}. Brock then came and Red had his first Gym battle with him. Red used Clefairy while Brock used {{TP|Brock|Onix}}. Clefairy managed to defeat Onix by having it chase its own tail, earning Red the {{badge|Boulder}}.
  +
  +
Brock reappears in ''[[PMRSs1|Clefairy, Form Teacher Of Class 1P!!]]'' in a form of a cameo. He is seen wearing his outfit from {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}.

==Trivia==
*The Japanese name of the Boulderbadge is the ''Grey Badge''.
+
* In {{5v2|Red|Blue|Yellow|FireRed|LeafGreen}}, all of Brock's Pokémon are part {{type|Ground}} as well as part {{type|Rock}}.
*Most official sources do not give Brock a last name. However, several sources suggest that in the anime, his last name is Harrison. In the July 2006 issue of [[wp:K-Zone|K-Zone]] Magazine, [[Eric Stuart]] was interviewed and stated that Brock's last name is Harrison.
+
* Despite being a Rock-type [[Type expert|expert]], none of Brock's {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} in [[Generation I]] know any Rock-type [[move]]s, only knowing {{type|Normal}} moves. This was changed in FireRed and LeafGreen.
*Brock has the most airtime out of all of Ash's companions, being present in every season except for the [[Orange Islands]] saga.
+
* In Generation I, Brock's {{p|Onix}} knows {{m|Bind}} at [[level]]s 12 and 14, despite Onix not learning the move until level 15.
*In the anime, Brock's house is located directly behind the Pewter Gym. His room is only seen briefly in [[AG034]], but what is seen of it shows that it is decorated in a traditional Japanese style, including [[wp:fusuma|fusuma]], a [[wp:tansu|tansu]] chest, and a [[wp:futon|futon]] for a bed.

* Brock is one of two [[Gym Leader]]s not to give the {{player}} a [[TM]] of his specialty type, the other being [[Falkner]]. This is only true in Generation I, however, as in FireRed and LeafGreen, Brock's chosen TM changed from {{TM|34|Bide}} to {{TM|39|Rock Tomb}}.
*Brock owns two {{t|Poison}}-type Pokémon, [[Brock's Crobat|Crobat]] and [[Brock's Croagunk|Croagunk]], whose names both start with ''Cro-''.
+
* During his Gym battle in {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, Brock uses a {{p|Rhyhorn}} with the [[Ability]] {{a|Sturdy}}, even though Rhyhorn cannot normally have that Ability.
*Brock is currently the only main character of the anime with {{t|Steel}}-type Pokémon, owning two, [[Brock's Steelix|Steelix]] and [[Brock's Forretress|Forretress]]. If [[Dawn's Piplup]] reaches its final form, however, this will no longer be the case, as {{p|Empoleon}} is {{t|Water}}/{{t|Steel}}.
+
* In HeartGold and SoulSilver, Brock trades the player a Rhyhorn knowing {{m|Thunder Fang}} (an [[Egg Move]]) in exchange for a {{p|Bonsly}}. This may be a reference to his {{an|Brock|anime counterpart}}, who is a {{tc|Pokémon Breeder}} and once owned a [[Brock's Sudowoodo|Bonsly]].
*For [[DP007]], [[Professor Oak's lecture]] is about Brock. He writes this [[Pokémon senryū]] about him: ポケモンに つくしてそだてる ブリーダー ''Pokémon ni tsukushite sodateru Burīdā'' "The breeder who raises and devotes himself to Pokémon."
+
* As seen in HeartGold and SoulSilver, Brock's [[Trainer ID number]] is 06845.
*Brock is the fourth main character to own a Pokémon hatched from an egg. The first, of course, was [[Misty]] with [[Misty's Togetic|Togepi]] and [[Misty's Azurill|Azurill]] the second was [[Ash]] with [[Ash's Donphan|Phanpy]], and the third was [[May (anime)|May]] with [[May's Eevee|Eevee]].
+
* Out of all of Brock's Pokémon in the [[core series]] games, only three do not suffer from a double weakness to {{t|Grass}}: {{p|Rampardos}}, {{p|Aerodactyl}} and {{p|Tyranitar}}.
*Brock is one of two of [[Ash's friends]] who has had their father make an appearance in the anime. The other is May.
+
* In the [[Pokémon Stadium series]], Brock has been shown with several non-Rock-type Pokémon that his anime counterpart would later come to own, namely {{p|Golbat}} in {{eng|Pokémon Stadium|Stadium}}'s Round 2 fight, {{p|Forretress}} in {{pkmn|Stadium 2}}'s Round 1 fight, and {{p|Steelix}} in Stadium 2's Round 2 fight.
  +
* Brock shares his French name (Pierre) with {{Steven}}, the {{pkmn|Champion}} of the [[Hoenn]] [[region]].
  +
* According to [[Ken Sugimori]], Brock wasn't originally planned to be the first Gym Leader in {{2v2|Red|Blue}}.<ref>https://twitter.com/SUPER_32X/status/611129653110026241</ref>

Brock (Japanese: タケシ Takeshi) is the Gym Leader of Pewter City's Gym, known officially as the Pewter Gym. He gives the Boulder Badge to Trainers who defeat him in battle. He specializes in Rock-type Pokémon.

Contents

In the games

Brock appears in Pokémon Red, Blue, Yellow, FireRed, and LeafGreen as the Gym Leader of the Pewter Gym, which is the first Gym that the player challenges on their journey. He is one of the few truly serious professional Pokémon Trainers in the Pewter City area, and many people respect and admire him. He is quite proud of his rock-hard willpower, and uses Rock-type Pokémon to complement this. He rarely laughs or drops his serious demeanor, but when he does, he finds it hard to stop. In his free time, he likes to dig for Fossils in Mt. Moon. In addition to the Boulder Badge, Brock gives out TM34 (Bide) in Red, Blue, and Yellow, TM39 (Rock Tomb) in FireRed and LeafGreen, and TM01 (Headbutt) in Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!.

In Yellow, Brock mentions that he is training to become a Pokémon Breeder, despite breeding not being present in the game. This is a reference to the goals of his anime counterpart.

Three years later, in Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver, Brock remains the Gym Leader of the Pewter Gym, which can be challenged at any point during the player's travels through Kanto. He is surprised to hear that the player is from the Johto region, and happily accepts their challenge. While he doesn't give out a TM in Gold, Silver, and Crystal, he gives out TM80 (Rock Slide) in HeartGold and SoulSilver.

In HeartGold and SoulSilver, after all 16 Badges have been obtained, Brock can be found in Diglett's Cave near Pewter City on any day between noon and 3 PM, and will offer his Pokégear number if spoken to. If he is called on Saturday nights, he will be up for a rematch at the Fighting Dojo in Saffron City. 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.

In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, Brock appears alongside the other Gym Leaders of Kanto as an opponent in the Kanto Leaders Tournament at the Pokémon World Tournament. He also participates alongside the Gym Leaders of Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh and Unova in the World Leaders Tournament, and other Rock-type experts in the Rock Type Expert Tournament.

In Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, it is revealed that he obsessed with girls.

  • Being defeated
"I took you for granted. As proof of your victory, here's the BoulderBadge!"

Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal

Pewter Gym
  • 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!"
  • Being 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 BoulderBadge 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

Pewter Gym
  • Before battle
"So, you're here. I'm Brock. I'm Pewter's Gym Leader. My rock-hard willpower is evident even in my Pokémon. My Pokémon are all rock hard, and have true-grit determination. That's right - my Pokémon are all the Rock type! Fuhaha! You're going to challenge me knowing that you'll lose? That's the Trainer's honor that compels you to challenge me. Fine, then! Show me your best!"
  • Being defeated
"I took you for granted, and so I lost. As proof of your victory, I confer on you this...the official Pokémon League BoulderBadge."

  • 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."
"There are all kind of Trainers in this huge world of ours. You appear to be very gifted as a Pokémon Trainer. So let me make a suggestion. Go to the Gym in Cerulean and test your abilities."

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."
  • On Saturdays:
"Hello... What's up? I'm doing great! Hey, you called at just the right time! I'm free right now. Want to battle me again?"
No: "Is that so... Well, I suppose you must have a lot of things to do yourself..."

  • If the player is defeated

  • After being defeated
"I really enjoyed the battle with you. Still, the world is huge! I can't believe you got past my rock-hard defense."
  • After winning
"I really enjoyed the battle with you. I guess my rock-hard defense works in top-level competition as well!"

Pewter Gym
  • Before battle
"So, you're here. I'm Brock, Pewter City's Gym Leader. You can see just by looking at my Pokémon how rock hard my willpower is. My Pokémon are all hard as rock and have true-grit determination!

  • Being defeated
"It seems I underestimated you."
  • After being defeated

"There are all kinds of people in this huge world of ours. Some have their Pokémon battle—some just like to raise them... I'm hard at work here to learn how to become a Pokémon Breeder, who helps raise Pokémon. You're aiming to become a strong Trainer, right? Then you should challenge all the other Gyms!"
Celadon City
"Hey! I didn't expect to run into you here. I'm on my way back from visiting the Celadon City Gym. Keeping in touch with other Gym Leaders is part of our duties, after all!"
"The girls at that Gym all turned me away for some reason, though... Actually, have some Pewter Crunchies! I'd brought them as a gift to the Gym here."
"Oh, and you're probably going to want some tea after eating them. Pewter Crunchies can make you thirsty."
"Ah! I don't have enough left to give to that thirsty guard now..."
"Anyway, it looks like you've been visiting the Gyms in other cities! I wish you the best!"
Rematch
  • Before battle (first rematch)
"...You sure look different from when we first met! I have a request for you, since you're now the Pokémon League Champion. The truth is, Gym Leaders have the right to challenge the Champion! ...Please allow me the privilege of facing you in battle once again! Allow me to show you the true rock-hard strength of my Pokémon!"
  • Before battle (subsequent rematches)
"No matter what kind of opponent you may be, my Rock-type Pokémon will take you on! That's the promise of my rock-hard will!"
  • Being defeated
"I knew you were strong, but this..."
  • After being defeated
"I've chosen to postpone my dream of becoming a Pokémon Breeder just for a little bit longer. Right now I'm more interested in training to grow strong enough to one day face and defeat you! Please, battle me every day so I can grow even stronger!"

Pokémon Puzzle League

  • Before battle
"Hi, Ash! It's good to see you again. It looks like I will be your first official battle. I hold the Boulder Badge. If you defeat me, then I will give it to you. Have you heard anything about the Puzzle Master? I hear no one has ever defeated him. Oh well, are you ready? Let's go."

In the anime

In the main series

Brock in the Sun & Moon series
Main article: Brock (anime)

In the anime, like later Gym Leaders, Brock appeared primarily as an opponent to Ash Ketchum 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 region, 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, more recently, Poison Jabbed by his Croagunk.


In Pokémon Origins

Brock in Pokémon Origins

In Pokémon Origins, Brock is the only Gym Leader to have a key role other than Giovanni. Much like his role in the games, Brock is the Gym Leader of the Pewter Gym.

Brock is first seen in File 1: Red, watching a Pokémon battle between Red and Blue. After Red is defeated, Brock talks to Red and teaches him about the basics of Pokémon battling and training.

Later, Red discovers that Brock is the Gym Leader of Pewter City and goes to challenge Brock to earn his first Badge. There, they have a Gym battle in which Brock teaches Red about type matchups and strategy. Brock is shown to have many Pokémon, and selects Geodude and Onix when Red confirms that he has no Badges. This implies that all Gym Leaders have Pokémon of varying strengths in reserve in order to keep each challenge a fair fight. After a tough battle, Red eventually defeats Brock by using all of his Pokémon to slowly weaken Brock's Onix until it falls. Having lost the battle, Brock awards Red with the Boulder Badge and TM34 (Bide).

Unlike most other characters in Pokémon Origins, whose designs were based on their Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen designs, Brock's design is more akin to his Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver design.
