In the anime
Brawly once trained with [[Chuck]], a [[Gym Leader]] from [[Johto]]. Brawly teaches many of the locals how to surf as well as how to train Pokémon. Many of his pupils at the [[Gym]] are {{tc|Surfer}}s like himself.
 
Brawly debuted in ''[[AG020|Brave the Wave]]''. {{Ash}} wasbecame veryextremely annoyed thatwhen Brawly wouldstarted putconstantly offpostponing atheir [[Gym]] {{pkmn|battle}} in favor of going surfing,. andAs hesuch, wenthe on to interruptinterrupted their morning surf session., but Brawly was unfazed by this and even helped Ash to recover {{AP|Pikachu}} from {{TRT}}.
 
After seeing Pikachu send Team Rocket blasting off, Brawly offered Ash a Gym challenge. Ash eagerly accepted and the pair walked over the [[Dewford Gym]] battlefield. [[Ash's {{AP|Taillow]]}} took on Brawly's {{p|Machop}} in the first round, but it was defeated by a single {{m|Cross Chop}}. [[Ash's {{AP|Treecko]]}} managed to defeat Machop with its speed and a direct {{m|Pound}} attack. Brawly then defeated Ash with his [[Evolution|newly-evolved]] {{TP|Brawly|Hariyama}}, and in part because of Ash's own arrogance.
 
Afterwards, Ash caught up with Brawly on the beach, and Brawly went on to explainexplained the importance of his surf training to his battlebattling strategy. Ash took on Brawly's advice and trained for several weeks on [[Dewford Island]] in anticipation of a [[rematch]]. Ash even went so far as to copy Brawly's wave-training to teach his own Pokémon to dodge and resist attacks.
 
In ''[[AG030|A Meditite Fight!]]'', Brawly interrupted Ash's battle against his student {{ho|Shauna}} because of a brewing storm. Brawly led everyone, some [[wild Pokémon]], and even Team Rocket, to a cave on the shore to wait for the storm to pass. TheWhen the storm ended, but Team Rocket returned to their usual ploy of tryingattempted to steal Pikachu, but Brawly's Hariyama quickly sent the trio blasting off. Afterwards, Brawly refereed a match between Ash and Shauna. While Ash won, Brawly was thrilled to see Shauna had connected with her {{p|Meditite}} and officially made her one of his apprentices. He also agreed to a rematch against Ash at an islet off the coast of Dewford. Using his Pokémon's new techniques and his newly-caught {{AP|Corphish}}, Ash was finally able to claim the {{Badge|Knuckle}} in ''[[AG031|Just One of the Geysers!]]''.
Brawly also agreed to a rematch against Ash in a private arena—a wave-swept islet off the coast of Dewford. Using his Pokémon's new techniques and his newly-caught {{AP|Corphish}}, Ash was finally able to claim the {{Badge|Knuckle}} in ''[[AG031|Just One of the Geysers!]]''.
 
He reappeared in flashbacks in ''[[AG075|Whiscash and Ash]]'' and ''[[AG149|Wheel of Frontier]]''.
Brawly is calm and approachable. He also has a great respect for nature, as revealed in ''[[AG030|A Meditite Fight!]]''.
 
Like his mentor [[Chuck]], Brawly's {{pkmn|battle}} style is based on focus. At first, Ash was unable to realize that Brawly's surf training had helped him to develop his Pokémon's unique dodgedodges and concentrated balance techniques. Surfing has taught them to concentrate their center of gravity by bending their legs, while their upper bodies are prepared to launch or fend off an attack.
