    I had this same problem with Charmander, in Red version. Oh how I was hurtin' for something good. Fortunately enough, I got a team of Pidgey, Nidoran, and a Beedrill together. It was a very harrowing fight. :P

    I had to figure out to beat Brock from my friends. They said to catch a Caterpie and train it until it learns confusion as a Butterfree. I never thought much of Brock when I was younger because I started Blue version with Squirtle.

    Whenever I didn't feel like training for a butterfree, I just spammed the hell out of Pikachu's quick attack.

    I used Butterfree. I loved that Pokémon back then so I'd have one anyway, not just for Brock.

    There was one run-through with Pikachu that somehow I managed to use Pikachu to take the 1st Gym down. Took a lot of potions and leveling up, but still was able to.

    My team was Mankey and Pikachu for that whole gym.

    I used Pikachu as a sucided ^^; I kept making him use quick attack to knock some HP, even if it was like a point a hit ^^; But then I spam with my Nidorino with double kick and poison sting, I would get lucky a few times getting Brock's Onix poisoned XD

    team i used:

    Pikachu Lv. 12
    Pidgeotto Lv.11
    Mankey Lv.10
    Nidoran Lv.6

    Sent in Pikachu first and spammed tail whip, switched to mankey and low kicked geodude into oblivion.
    Sent in Pidgeotto for Onix and spammed sand attack, switched to nidoran and spammed leer.
    finally, switched to mankey and low kicked Onix back to hell.
    tad bit of overkill i would say, but i wasnt taking any chances.

    definetly the second hardest gym in the game, behind misty. You actually have to have a decent strategy to beat them. Onix walls almost everything at that point in the game and Starmie would at least two-shot everything with the bubblebeam of death. Its a shame the other gyms dont require much training and planning.

    I caught a Mankey on Route 22. By the time I reached Brock it was about Level 9/10 and knew Low Kick. It was still a challenge but it worked.

    The first time I played through, I wanted to be just like Ash from the anime (I was around 4-6), and so I trained up my Pikachu for hours and actually beat him using quick attack only. Every time after that I used a Mankey.

    Went directly to Viridian Forest, caught a Caterpie, and trained it up to a level 10 or 11 Butterfree. I'd also catch that one Pidgeotto that was also in the Viridian Forest. That took care of Brock for good.

    I would evolve a Caterpie into a Butterfree and use Confusion the entire time. I've also beaten him by using Pidgey's Sand Attack, combined with Pikachu's Quick Attack and several Potions.

    They kindly put Mankey on Route 22 so you could catch one and use it to take Brock down, you know. That's what I did.

    When I was little I used to train my pikachu until he could knock them out with quick attack. But when I got older I trained a butterfree instead, which is one of my favorite pokemon so it works out well.
