In the games

Generation III

Dewford Town Pokémon Gym
Leader: Brawly

A big wave in fighting!

In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, the Dewford Gym is a pitch-black maze, with Gym Trainers hiding in the darkness. As Trainers are defeated, the Gym lights up bit by bit. Once Brawly is beaten, the entire Gym lights up completely. In Ruby and Sapphire, Battle Girl Laura cannot be avoided.

Generation VI

Dewford Town Pokémon Gym
Leader: Brawly

A big wave in fighting!

In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the Gym is redesigned as a darkened exercise gym with a lit central hallway with conveyor belts that restrict movement. The hallway also contains switches on the floor that momentarily light up the side passages through the rest of the gym when stepped on, giving the player a glimpse of the maze before they attempt it to progress. Once Brawly is defeated, the Gym is permanently lit up.

When defeated, Brawly will give the player the Knuckle Badge as well as TM08 (Bulk Up) as a reward.

In the anime

Dewford Gym first appeared in Brave the Wave, where Ash was seen charging at the Gym, excited to challenge it. Unfortunately for him, he found out that Brawly, the Gym Leader, was off to a surfing practice and would only battle Ash once he was done.

Later, Ash finally got his desired Gym battle, which was set to be a two-on-two battle. First, Ash chose Taillow against Brawly's Machop, but lost the round despite the type advantage. Next Ash used Treecko, which beat Machop, and then went up against Brawly's Makuhita. During the battle, Makuhita suddenly evolved into Hariyama, and proceeded to easily defeat Treecko. Ash was disheartened by this defeat, but Brawly encouraged him to go on.

In Just One of the Geysers, Ash had a rematch against Brawly at his private training spot on a small isle off the coast of Dewford Island, which had a battlefield filled with geysers. With the help of his recently caught Corphish, his diligent training, and some quick thinking to utilize the new battleground to his advantage, Ash was able to defeat Brawly this time around, finally earning him the Knuckle Badge.

Machop
Machop was the first Pokémon Brawly used against Ash in both the first Gym battle and the rematch. During the first match, it was sent up against Taillow, and although Taillow kept using Wing Attack and hitting it, Machop kept getting up and eventually managed to knock Taillow out with a Cross Chop. Next, Ash used Treecko which was finally able to defeat it.

In Ash and Brawly's rematch, Machop was again used first. It began to overpower Treecko, but fell to Ash's newly-caught Corphish.

It reappeared in a flashback in Which Wurmple's Which?.

Machop's known moves are Cross Chop and Karate Chop.

Dewford Gym first appeared in Mashing Makuhita, when Sapphire challenged Brawly into a Gym battle. Using his surfing tactics to avoid Sapphire's attacks, Brawly easily gained the upper hand, especially when his Makuhita evolved into Hariyama. However, thanks to Chic's Double Kick, Sapphire was eventually able to defeat Hariyama and win the battle, earning herself the Knuckle Badge.
