Brock's siblings: (top row) Salvadore, Yolanda, Forrest, Tommy, Cindy, (bottom row) Suzie, Timmy, Billy, and Tilly

Brock's siblings are the nine younger brothers and sisters of Brock, and recurring characters who appeared in the Pokémon anime. They are the children of Flint and Lola, and appear to all be relatively close in age. They all first appeared under Brock's care in Showdown in Pewter City.

The most notable among them is the oldest son after Brock, Forrest (Japanese: ジロウ Jirō), who was first referred to by name and became more defined than the rest of the children in A Family That Battles Together Stays Together!. The remaining childrens' names were listed in Grating Spaces: Salvadore (Japanese: サブロウ Saburō), Yolanda (ヨモコ Yomoko), Tommy (ゴロウ Gorō), Cindy (ムツコ Mutsuko), Suzie (ナナコ Nanako), Timmy (ヤオキ Yaoki), and the twins Billy (クロウ Kurō) and Tilly (トオコ Tōko).

Like Brock and their father, they all have very narrow, squinty eyes and coarse textured hair. None of the children inherited Lola's eyes, though some seem to have skin and hair color closer in tone to their mother's.

History

Prior to Showdown in Pewter City, their parents Flint and Lola left the family home to pursue their respective goals, leaving Brock in charge. The children would often watch Brock's battles against Gym challengers and cheer him on, as seen in the episode proper.

Towards the end of Showdown in Pewter City, Brock decided to leave on his own journey with Ash and Misty after Flint returned home and took on both the domestic and Gym duties full-time. By A Family That Battles Together Stays Together!, Lola had also returned and went on to redecorate the Pewter Gym and declare it a Water-type facility, much to the children's dismay. Brock also returned briefly, before leaving for the Hoenn region, but not before restoring the Gym to its heritage Rock-type theme after defeating Lola in battle.

In Grating Spaces, Brock's siblings were once again left alone after Flint and Lola went on a plane trip organized by Team Rocket, who were posing as Gym stylists, and redecorated the Pewter Gym in a bid to take over the facility. Brock visited home and was shocked to see his parents' absences and the Gym's latest renovation. When the pair returned from their trip, Brock scolded them for abandoning the children once again and informed them that they had fallen for one of Team Rocket's schemes.

In SS025, they cheered Forrest on as he battled a Nurse Joy from the Pokémon Inspection Agency. Despite Forrest's loss, Brock's siblings were relieved after Joy allowed the Pewter Gym to continue being an official Gym.

Most recently, Forrest and the rest of Brock's siblings reappeared in a fantasy during the Poké Problem segment of SM042.

Character

Brock's siblings are generally happy in spite of their abandonment. They have a strong camaraderie among themselves and Brock's Pokémon, such as Ludicolo and Sudowoodo. They are deeply attached to the Pewter Gym and all of them prefer the Rock type.

All of the children are extremely close to their older brother Brock, and they view him as more of a parental figure than their own parents due to their general absence in their lives. They all love and respect him; in their debut episode, when he was losing a battle, they all grabbed onto Ash because they knew Brock didn't want to have his Onix hurt. Whenever Brock battles at the Gym, his siblings watch on and always root for him.

With the exception of Forrest, they are too young to train Pokémon and have none of their own. Salvadore, as the third-eldest brother, acts as referee during Forrest's battles at the Gym, although if Brock is battling, Forrest himself takes over this responsibility.
