Pewter Gym appears in all games set in the Kanto region, appearing much the same in each: a small building with a Japanese rock garden inside, oneRBYGSCFRLG or twoHGSS Trainers, and the Gym Leader, Brock, waiting at the back of the Gym, stading on plain floorRBYGSC or a large stone pedestalFRLGHGSS. In the Generation I games and their Generation III remakes, if the player tries to leave Pewter City to Route 3 before earning the Boulder Badge, a boy will lead him or her to the front of the Gym.



A field based on the Gym also appears in Template:Eng's Gym Leader Castle and Stadium 2's Kanto Gym Leader Castle.

Pewter Gym interior in its debut

In the main series

The Pewter Gym was first seen in Showdown in Pewter City in the anime. It is a stone building apparently set apart from the rest of the city. Brock waits inside in the dark for challengers, sitting on a stone pedestal as he does in the games; however, unlike in the games, no other Trainers have been seen as part of the Gym aside from Brock's family. The battlefield is littered with jagged rocks and boulders, and a balcony along the edge above provides spectators a spot to watch Gym battles. Despite being a Rock-type Gym, the building has sprinklers for fire safety, which Ash uses to gain an advantage against Onix.



The Gym is an important part of Brock's family, and Brock, his brothers and sisters, and his parents live in a large house behind the Gym. Brock's father, Flint, was the Gym Leader before Brock, and Brock inherited the Gym as part of his family responsibilities when his parents left. While Brock was a strong, respected Gym Leader, he did not like being one, and only did it as an obligation to his family. When Flint came back, Brock returned the title of Gym Leader to him, and left to travel with Ash and pursue his own dream of becoming a Pokémon Breeder.



When Brock's mother, Lola, returned, the Gym was turned into a combination Water-type and Rock-type Gym, and the battlefield was redecorated, including the addition of a pool in the middle. However, Brock returned in A Family That Battles Together Stays Together! and was shocked to see how his mother has changed. Both he and his younger brother Forrest take pride in the Gym's strong reputation as a Rock-type Gym. He battled his mother to restore the Gym to being only Rock-type again.



It was subject to a second remodeling attempt in Grating Spaces. At that time, a storage room was seen where the Gym keeps many Poké Balls, presumably containing different Rock-type Pokémon. In its subsequent appearances, the Gym's name has been removed from the entrance.



While traveling with Ash, Brock kept Pokémon he owns but does not currently have on his party at the Gym. He has had his Steelix, Geodude, Crobat, Forretress, Ludicolo and Marshtomp at the Gym. Flint's Golem is also kept at the Gym, and Lola keeps her many Water-type Pokémon there.



Pewter Gym was featured in SS025, in which the Gym was going to be closed down after Brock lost to Nurse Joy of the Pokémon Inspection Agency. After winning a battle against Forrest, Nurse Joy allowed the Gym to stay open, with Forrest as its official Gym Leader. The Gym is notably cleaner than in its previous appearance, with all paintings removed. In addition, the battlefield has more pointed rocks while the area around it is a blue shiny floor, possibly to reflect Lola's penchant for water. However, the Gym had a bad paint job and the Rock Pokémon nearly drowned in the pool, which per the Pokémon Inspection Agency's standards of cleanliness, safety, and coolness in Cerulean Blues, should have resulted in the Gym being shut down.

In Pokémon Origins

Pewter Gym interior in Pokémon Origins

The Pewter City Gym was seen in the Pokémon Origins episode File 1: Red, when Red went to challenge it on the suggestion of Brock, whom he didn't know being the Gym Leader until meeting him at the Gym. After battling Brock's Geodude with his Charmander for a while, Red was adviced by Brock to use a Pokémon with a better type matchup, prompting Red to switch to his Nidoran♂, whose super effective Double Kick was enough to defeat Geodude. Brock then switched to his Onix, which defeated Nidoran♂ with Bide, and then proceeded to defeat Red's Spearow, Rattata, and Metapod as well, but not before the Metapod had managed to land a String Shot on the Rock Snake Pokémon. Red was then forced to switch back to his Charmander. Thanks to Metapod's String Shot, Charmander was able to outspeed Onix and defeat it with Scratch, winning the match for Red and earning him the Template:Badge and Template:TM.



Like all Gyms in Pokémon Origins, this Gym has scoreboards featuring each Trainer's current Pokémon and their remaining HP. The Gym's battlefield's design is based on that of Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen.

The outside of the Gym has the default design, but the inside consists of a boxing ring where the Trainers battle, a space for the crowd around it, and a room with windows where Brock can watch the battles.
