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

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.

I have a odd strategy for misty, evolve yourself a nidoking! It took me a long time, but misty fell in seconds to my wrath!!!

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.
