This Steelix is a steel/ground-type Pokémon owned by Brock.


Original series

Onix was given to Brock by his father, Flint, on his 10th birthday.

It first appeared as an Onix in Showdown in Pewter City, where Brock used it to battle Ash's Pikachu. Because it was part ground-type, it was unaffected by Pikachu's electric attacks. However, after it was dowsed with water, Pikachu was able to affect it with its electric attacks and ultimately knock it out.

When Brock joins with Ash and Misty from their travels, Onix is also used in some occassions such as the race and it ends up disqualified due to hate water and Onix cries towards his trainer. Later in Volcanic Panic! Onix and Geodude are aiding Ash's Charizard and Pikachu and Blaine's Magmar to stop the lava flow that destroys Blaine's gym.

In Johto from the episode Sick Daze, Brock ends up getting sick and it forces Ash and Misty to deal with his note chores such as food and polishing rock Pokemon. After realizing how hard to polish them, Ash decides to use Totodile to washed them as Misty scolds him that rock Pokemon hates water which Onix was seen panicking and dodges to avoid its Water Gun. Later, Onix and the other Pokemon are captured by Team Rocket before Brock's Golbat manages to slice the Meowth Balloon with its Wing Attack. Onix uses Rock Throw on Team Rocket before being blasted off by Pikachu's Thunder.

In Great Bowls of Fire! during Dragonite's rampage, Brock uses Onix to pull off its Rock Throw to stop the fire.

Advanced Generation series

In Pokemon Chronicles from the episode, A Family that Battles Together Stays Together! While still an Onix, Brock uses it to fight his ditzy mother, Lola who is responsible for redecorate the Pewter Gym into an aquarium filled with her water Pokémon in order to put the gym back to its former glory. Onix fights Lola's Mantine and it uses Dig to remove the water from the ground and attacks Mantine with Bind and defeats it with Slam. Later, Brock lent it to his younger brother, Forrest, the next Gym Leader of Pewter City Gym to take care of it along with his other Pokémon.

Some time in the future when Brock returned to Pewter City, he discovered that his Onix had evolved into Steelix. He also uses it to team up with Ash's Donphan against the gym remodelers which is Jessie and James in disguise and using two of Butch and Cassidy's Pokémon, Charizard and Aggron against them. After Team Rocket is revealed to be responsible for remodeling the gym and Meowth's attempt on stealing the Gym's Pokémon, Ash, Brock and Forrest manage to blast them off with a combination of Pikachu's Thunderbolt, Donphan's Hyper Beam, Steelix's Dragon Breath and Geodude's Sandstorm. After the incident, Brock continues his travel with Ash, May and Max and gives farewell to his family and his Pokémon.
