* Despite being a Rock-type [[Type expert|expert]], none of Brock's Pokémon in [[Generation I]] know any Rock-type [[move]]s, only knowing {{type|Normal}} moves. This was changed in FireRed and LeafGreen.
* In Generation I, Brock's {{p|Onix}} knows {{m|Bind}} at [[level]]s 12 and 14, despite Onix not learning the move until level 15.
* Brock is one of two [[Gym Leader]]s not to give the {{player}} a [[TM]] of his specialty type, the other being [[Falkner]]. This is only true in GenerationGenerations I and VII, however, as in FireRed and LeafGreen, Brock's chosen TM changed from {{TM|34|Bide}} to {{TM|39|Rock Tomb}}.
* During his Gym battle in {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, Brock uses a {{p|Rhyhorn}} with the [[Ability]] {{a|Sturdy}}, even though Rhyhorn cannot normally have that Ability.
* In HeartGold and SoulSilver, Brock trades the player a Rhyhorn knowing {{m|Thunder Fang}} (an [[Egg Move]]) in exchange for a {{p|Bonsly}}. This may be a reference to his {{an|Brock|anime counterpart}}, who is a {{tc|Pokémon Breeder}} and once owned a [[Brock's Sudowoodo|Bonsly]].
