==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, and {{TM|39|Rock Tomb}} in FireRed and LeafGreen, and {{TM|01|Headbutt}} in Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!.
 
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}}.
 
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]].
 
In Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, it is revealed that he obsessed with girls.

====[[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]]====
;[[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! That's right! My Pokémon are all Rock types! Fwahaha! You're going to challenge me even knowing that you'll lose? That's what a Trainer's honor demands! So be it! Show me your best!"''
 
* Being defeated
:''"It seems I underestimated you."''
 
* After being defeated
:''"As proof of your victory, take an official Pokémon League Badge—a Boulder Badge!"''
:''"With a Boulder Badge, Pokémon up to Lv. 20 from other Trainers will listen to you without question! Oh...and wait! Take this with you, too."''
:''"If you use a [[TM]], or Technical Machine, you can teach your Pokémon the move within it. A TM can be used as many times as you like, so use it on any Pokémon you want. [[TM01]] contains {{m|Headbutt}}. It deals damage to your opponent's Pokémon by ramming them with a head as hard as rock."''
:''"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 {{tc|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 Gym|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 [[Indigo Plateau|Pokémon League]] {{pkmn|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!"''

==In the anime==
===In the main series===
[[File:Brock anime DPSM.png|thumb|200px250px|Brock in the {{series|DiamondSun & PearlMoon}}]]
{{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]] series[[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, mostmore recently, {{m|Poison Jab}}bed by his {{TP|Brock|Croagunk}}.

===In Pokémon Origins===
[[File:Brock Poké Balls PO.png|200px250px|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 both 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.
 
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.

Brock appeared in the [[Pokémon Masters Animated Trailer]], where he joined a male {{pkmn|Trainer}} and {{ga|Rosa}} in a {{pkmn|journey}} across [[Pasio]]. 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 Electric Tale of Pikachu manga|Brock (anime)}}
As the {{pkmn|manga}} series [[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===
===In the Pokémon Adventures manga===
[[File:Brock Adventures.png|thumb|200px|Brock and his {{p|Geodude}}]]

====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]].
 
Aside from being a Gym Leader, Brock also works as a security guard at the [[Pewter Museum of Science]].

===In the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga===
Brock debuts in the chapter ''[[PM003|Take Out The Rival Onix!!]]'' of the [[Pokémon Pocket Monsters]] manga. 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}}.
