Tips for beating Brock Edit

    If you are not using Charmander, use your starter's specially-based move: Bubble/Water Gun for Squirtle and Vine Whip for Bulbasaur.  Geodude and Onix are both Rock/Ground types, so they are 4x weak to Water and Grass type moves. They will therefore be beaten easily by players who chose Squirtle or Bulbasaur.
  • However, both of Brock's Pokémon are resistant to Charmander's Fire-type STAB, and Onix carries Rock Tomb (which can easily kill even an overleveled Charmander in two or three rounds, or on a critical). For this reason, it is highly advised to avoid using Charmander unless absolutely necessary, and to overlevel otherwise. If forced to use Charmander, Metal Claw is a possible alternative to Ember. (More testing needed.)
  • While it may be tempting to use a Butterfree with Confusion to target Brock's Pokémon's low Special stats, Rock Tomb against Butterfree's 4x weakness spells certain death.
  • Use a Mankey with Low Kick. This move is of the Fighting-type, and will thus be super effective against Brock's Rock-types. Low Kick is particularly effective, as it reaches its full 120 Base Power against Onix.

Good Pokémon to Use Edit

  • Squirtle - Can destroy both Geodude and Onix with STAB Water-type attacks.
  • Bulbasaur - Can destroy both Geodude and Onix with STAB super-effective Vine Whip.
  • Mankey - Can destroy both Geodude and Onix with STAB super-effective Low Kick.
