{{main|List of wild Pokémon in the Battle Pyramid}}
[[Wild Pokémon]] are encountered within the Battle Pyramid, with strategies differing depending on how many floors the player has ventured through. Several of the wild Pokémon have high base Speed, making them difficult to [[escape]] from. A {{tc|Hex Maniac}} next to the PC will tell the player what to expect in their next attempt. The tactics used by the wild Pokémon will progress as follows (note that after the list has been completed, it will restart from the beginning):

Brandon challenged the Battleking Pyramidto a battle to save Ash, and was usedfinally inable defendingto thedefeat [[SnowpointAsh's TempleSceptile]] fromwith [[Jhis {{DL|PokémonBrandon's Hunterlegendary J]]titans|Regirock}} before sealing the king's spirit away again. The match was declared unofficial and Brandon agreed to have an official battle with Ash later.
In ''[[AG186|Overjoyed!]]'', Ash and his friends arrived at the Battle Pyramid's new location in [[Fennel Valley]]. On the day before the battle, Brandon told Ash that he'd be using a {{DL|Brandon's legendary titans|Registeel}}, prompting Ash to call back his {{AP|Torkoal}} from [[Professor Oak's Laboratory]]. However, despite Ash having the type advantage, he was still defeated. Brandon subsequently departed to catch a new Pokémon, promising to return once he had done so.
The Battle Pyramid returned to Fennel Valley in ''[[AG189|Gathering the Gang of Four!]]'' and ''[[AG190|Pace - The Final Frontier!]]'', allowing Ash to have a [[rematch]] with Brandon. The match eventually came down to a face-off between Ash's Pikachu and {{DL|Brandon's legendary titans|Regice|Brandon's Regice}}. This time, Ash was able to emerge victorious against Brandon, finally earning him the [[Symbol|Brave Symbol]] and a place in the Battle Frontier [[Hall of Fame]].
In ''[[DP128|A Pyramiding Rage!]]'', the Battle Pyramid traveled to [[Snowpoint City]] in order for Brandon to investigate the [[Snowpoint Temple]]. [[Paul]] challenged Brandon to a battle, intending to accomplish what his brother [[Reggie]] had failed to achieve, as Reggie had once lost to Brandon, causing him to abandon his career as a {{pkmn|Trainer}} and become a {{tc|Pokémon Breeder}} instead. However, like his brother before him, Paul was defeated without defeating a single opposing Pokémon.
In ''[[DP129|Pillars of Friendship!]]'', after learning of [[J|Pokémon Hunter J]] attacking the Snowpoint Temple, Brandon flew the Battle Pyramid to the site, only to be attacked by [[J's henchmen]]'s Pokémon army, damaging one of the pyramid's rotors and forcing it to make an emergency landing.

The Battle Pyramid first appeared in ''[[PS311|Dust-Up With Dusclops]]'', where Brandon invited {{-adv|Emerald}} to challenge it immediately after his victory at the [[Battle Pike]], saying that if Emerald intended to challenge all seven Battle Frontier facilities within the Battle Frontier's seven-day opening ceremony, he should challenge the pyramid right away, as even the fastest clearing of the challenge would take more than 24 hours. Emerald accepted this and started his Battle Pyramid challenge immediately.

In ''[[PS312|Chipping Away at Regirock]]'', Emerald cleared the pyramid for the tenth time, allowing him to challenge Brandon and his {{DL|Brandon's legendary titans|In the Pokémon Adventures manga|trio of Legendary Pokémon}} at the top. Although Brandon seemed to be emerging victorious at the end, Emerald secretly used a [[Revive]] he had found during his challenge to restore his fainted {{TP|Emerald|Sceptile}}, allowing it to land a surprise attack on Brandon's {{p|Regice}} and defeat it, winning the match for Emerald and earning him the [[Symbol|Brave Symbol]].
