In the Anime
He is a domestic, taking care of the tasks of not only grooming his Pokémon, but also those of the kids with whom he travels. He handles the cooking and the cleaning, something he is quite used to, being the oldest of ten children.
 
His family life deserves a mention, owing to it being most peculiar. His father, [[Flint]], left home to become a great trainer. When he never returned, his mother, [[Lola]], up and left them, leaving Brock to take care of his siblings by himself (the English version of ''[[EP005|Showdown in Pewter City]]'' has Flint claming she died, although some believe that he was clearly lying). It turned out Flint considered himself a failure and was selling rocks at the edge of town. When Brock left to journey with Ash and [[Misty]], he left Flint in charge of the Pewter Gym.

Shortly before Vulpix was returned, Brock used it in a Pokémon Beauty contest. Although May was the one to take part in contests in the third generation, Brock did enter one against her in [[AG167]].
 
Brock briefly left the show during the Orange Islands saga to work for [[Professor Ivy]] on [[Valencia Island]] and so is only seen in a couple of cameos in the second movie. While there, something happened that will probably remain secret as Brock will only huddle and say "that name" whenever he is asked about it. (Brock does mention his work for her in ''[[Destiny Deoxys]]'', though this is again dub added.) After this incident, Brock returned to Kanto where he was found by [[Delia Ketchum]], who helped him to regain his strength. Brock then became a rival to [[Mimey]] until he rejoined Ash and travelled through [[Johto]].
 
Upon his return home after journeying through Johto, Brock was dismayed to find that his mother had returned and commandeered the gym, turning the Rock-type haven into a {{t|Water}}-type den. Brock battled her for the honor of Rock-types and won, promising his brother [[Forest]] that he would become Gym Leader someday.
 
Brock always has his eyes closed, and the only time we see them open is in ''[[EP260|A Crowning Achievement]]'', where he makes a face for {{p|Larvitar}}. Another heated debate is what race Brock is, as many think he may be black, Latino, or Asian.
