|“||So, you're here. I'm Brock. I'm Pewter's Gym Leader. My rock-hard willpower is evident even in my Pokémon. My Pokémon are all rock hard, and have true-grit determination. That's right - my Pokémon are all the Rock type! Fuhaha! You're going to challenge me knowing that you'll lose? That's the Trainer's honor that compels you to challenge me. Fine, then! Show me your best!||„|

Arguably one of the most iconic Gym Leaders in the entire series [Only really rivaled by Misty and Giovanni], Brock has become a recurring character in the Pokémon franchise, appearing in Pokémon Red/Blue/Yellow, Pokémon Adventures and arguably most famously, the Pokémon anime series.
