===={{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 byup beinggetting 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 elsewhere.
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 night 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 {{pkmn2|caught|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]].
===={{series|Diamond & Pearl}}====
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 opposingone of Brandon's Pokémon.
In ''[[DP129|Pillars of Friendship!]]'', after learning of [[J|Pokémon Hunter J]]'s attack on 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.
