===={{series|Advanced Generation}}====
The Battle Pyramid debuted in ''[[AG178|Battling the Enemy Within!]]'', where {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} arrived to it its then-current location near [[Pewter City]], which they had learned in ''[[AG170|Second Time's the Charm!]]'', following Ash's victory against {{FB|Salon Maiden|Anabel}} at the {{gdis|Battle Tower|III}}. However, while exploring some ancient ruins, where the group also encountered Brandon for the first time, Ash ended by being possessed by the evil spirit of the [[King of Pokélantis]]. Brandon challenged the king to a battle to save Ash, and was finally able to defeat [[Ash's Sceptile]] with his {{DL|Brandon's legendary 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, before flying off to explore some ruins.
In ''[[AG182|Channeling the Battle Zone!]]'', the group learned about the Battle Pyramid's new location in [[Fennel Valley]], where they arrived in ''[[AG186|Overjoyed!]]''. On the daynight 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 left the pyramid to catch a new Pokémon, promising to return once he had done so.
Brandon returned to the Battle Pyramid in ''[[AG189|Gathering the Gang of Four!]]'', allowing Ash to start his [[rematch]] with him. The match continued in ''[[AG190|Pace - The Final Frontier!]]'', eventually coming down to a face-off between Ash's Pikachu and {{DL|Brandon's legendary titans|Regice|Brandon's Regice}}. This time, Ash was finally able to emerge victorious against Brandon, earning him the [[Symbol|Brave Symbol]] and a place in the Battle Frontier [[Hall of Fame]].
