Upon his return home, Brock was dismayed to find that his mother had returned and commandeered the Gym, turning the Rock-type haven into a brightly decorated {{type|Water}} den. Brock battled her for the honor of Rock types and won, promising his brother [[Forrest]] that he would become Gym Leader someday.

After that, Brock returned to follow Ash through [[Hoenn]], along with their new friends {{an|May}} and [[Max]], and then through Kanto again as Ash took on the Kanto {{Gdis|Battle Frontier|III}}. He left briefly when the {{series|Advanced Generation}} ended in order to visit his home, but quickly returned to travel with Ash and {{an|Dawn}} in [[Sinnoh]]. Near the end of the Sinnoh saga, Brock began to show interest in becoming a {{tc|Doctor|Pokémon Doctor}}, and so, rather than following Ash to [[Unova]] to advise him, decided to remain in Kanto to study.

Brock was mentioned in ''[[BW087|Expedition to Onix Island!]]'', when Dawn learned that {{an|Cilan}} cooks for himself, Ash and {{an|Iris}}. She said this was similar to the way Brock used to for her and Ash before he decided to become a Pokémon Doctor. He also appeared in flashbacks in ''[[BW088|The Mystery of the Missing Cubchoo!]]'' and ''[[BW116|The Fires of a Red-Hot Reunion!]]''. In addition, he appeared in a fantasy in ''[[BW142|The Dream Continues!]]''.
 
 
===={{series|Sun & Moon}}====

Brock reappeared in several {{series|Sun & Moon}} episodes, first reappearing with ''[[SM042|Alola, Kanto!]]''. Brock reunited with Ash when he and {{ashcl}} arrived at the Kanto airport, where he also used his expertise as a Pokémon {{tc|Doctor}} to diagnose {{an|Lillie}}'s [[Snowy]]'s airsickness as harmless. Brock and Misty then compared Kantonian and [[Regional variant|Alolan]] Pokémon with the class at [[Professor Oak's Laboratory]]. Later, Brock and the rest of the group worked together to defeat {{TRT}}, who Brock was angry to find were still up to their old tactics of stealing Pokémon. Afterwards, the group had a party and learned from {{an|Professor Kukui}} that the class had plans to head to [[Cerulean City]] for a Gym battle.
 
 
===Character===
[[File:Brock familypreparing Pokémon food.png|thumb|left|250px220px|Brock's familypreparing [[Pokémon food]]]]
Prior to joining {{Ash}} on his {{pkmn|journey}}, Brock had become increasingly frustrated and harsh towards challengers as a result of his responsibilities as both the [[Pewter City]] [[Gym Leader]] and the main caretaker for his {{Brocksib|nine younger siblings}}. Even while traveling, he would think of his family, returning home on several occasions like in ''[[HS01|A Family That Battles Together Stays Together!]]''.
 
Brock is noticeably mature, wise, and levelheaded, often acting as an older brother and caretaker to the other characters and a voice of reason in disputes. He will usually place others before himself and will support his friends even against his better judgment or at his own expense. Brock always carries books and maps with him, and thus is usually the character who knows where the group is headed and what they can do when they get there. However, in the {{series|Advanced Generation}}, this role was mostly taken over by [[Max]], who owned a [[PokéNav]].

He is renowned for his domestic abilities like sewing, vacuuming, and, most notably, cooking, which Ash and the others always enjoy without fail. The capacity of Brock's [[Bag]] is endless, as seen in ''[[EP009|The School of Hard Knocks]]'', where it is capable of containing full tea-sets, tables, and cooking utensils. He also carries a lot of other supplies, such as [[Potion]]s and [[Pokémon food]], though he has to make pit stops in towns so he could restock the group's supplies.

Despite this, all of his maturity and rationality leaves him completely at the sight of a beautiful woman, and he is extremely passionate over the prospect of finding the girl of his dreams, though he is usually never successful in wooing a woman. Despite this, a few women have been known to show interest in him, such as [[Wilhomena]], [[Temacu]], [[Natalie]], {{FB|Pike Queen|Lucy}}, [[Holly]], {{OBP|Autumn|DP062}}, [[Narissa]], [[Lizabeth]], and [[Olivia]]. Despite his failures, Brock remains determined to find a girl to start a relationship with, and has indicated several times he would stop traveling with Ash and stay with the girl if this happened. This behavior tends to wear on the nerves of other characters, and Misty and Max have both commonly dragged Brock away from women by his ear. In addition, some of Brock's own Pokémon, most notably {{TP|Brock|Croagunk}}, have attacked him for getting too flirtatious with women.

He also carries a small blue journal containing information on every girl he meets, referring to it in ''[[M10|The Rise of Darkrai]]'' as his "Little Blue Book of Babes". It most recently appeared in ''[[SM103|Heart of Fire! Heart of Stone!]]'' and featured [[Island Kahuna]] [[Olivia]].

His love of the [[Officer Jenny]] and [[Nurse Joy]] family lines, in particular, can be overbearing and embarrassing for his friends. Brock can also tell whether they are real or impostors, as well as make out subtle physical differences between them. This "ability" has been used multiple times in the series.
 
Brock was not shown to {{pkmn|battle}} often in spite of his experience as a former Gym Leader, though he happily accepts challenges from girls like [[Miki]], [[Molly Hale]], and Olivia. Instead, he tended to advise Ash on battle strategies and keenly watched matches from the sidelines, seeing the knowledge as valuable to understanding a Pokémon in its entirety.
