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 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, and {{TM|39|Rock Tomb}} in FireRed and LeafGreen.
 
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}}.
 
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.

* 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}}.
* 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.
* In HeartGold and SoulSilver, Brock trades the player a Rhyhorn knowing {{m|Thunder Fang}} (an [[Egg moveMove]]) 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]].
* As seen in HeartGold and SoulSilver, Brock's [[Trainer ID number]] is 06845.
* Out of all of Brock's Pokémon in the [[core series]] games, only {{p|Rampardos|three}} {{p|Aerodactyl|of}} {{p|Tyranitar|them}} do not suffer from a double weakness to {{t|Grass}}.
