    I have just gotten to where I face Brock but... I have no idea HOW I'm going to beat him.

    I have a lv.8 Pikachuu (well, DUH!), and lv.3 Pidgey and Rattata.

    any tips? O_O

    First Method:
    Go into Viridian Forest, and train it all the way until it becomes a Buterfree. It'll learn confusion and it really helps against fighting brock.

    Second Method:
    Go to the route that goes to the Pokemon League, and catch a mankey in the grass and train it till it learns low kick

    Third Method:
    Catch a Nidoran and raise it untill it learns Double Kick

    They all work :p

      raise up your pokemon so that they all surpass brocks levels and then load up on potions

          Well, most of those pokemon won't last long term (unless you are looking at a NidoKing/Queen). In MY opinion, I would go with Butterfree as a first choice (Psychic FTW!!) and Mankey as a second (Primeape is helpful with Bruno...).

            Butterfree, Mankey and the Nidorans can pwn Brock in no time. and i think that both Geodude and Onix don't have rock throw at level 10*Geodude* and Level 12*Onix* for Butterfree too

              That's the reason Brock is so hard if you pick Charmander or you're playing Pokemon Yellow. Rock Throw ends up Super-Effective to Fire and Electric Attacks are ineffective to Ground-types.

              Well, at least Mankey isn't a version exclusive to Red/Blue. That would suck. >.<

                  Asides from getting Mankey and Butterfree, there's always the long way of beating Brock which is what I used to do when I had Pikachu/Charmander. Just by using Growl enough times to weaken their attacks or Sand Attack, (e.g. via sacrificing a Pidgey), then just using up those turns to defeat him with Scratch or Quick Attack. Takes awhile, but it stopped me having to go through getting the other Pokemon.

                          One strategy I have heard of is to raise Pikachu to level 20 to learn slam.

                            Raising pokes to lvl 20 before first gym would take a lot of time and unneeded effort. Best way to get brock defeated fast, if getting 4-5 pidgeys, and spamming sand attack until they all are down. Altrough Mankey's low kick is nice too. While using Butterfree, remember than rock attacks rapes it.

                              I beat Brock by using Slam..but that took a whole day to get Pikachu up there. Just get a Mankey, and you'll be fine.
