Once you get to Celadon City, go to Celadon Condominiums. Fun fact about this building – if you go inside, you’ll find the names of the people that have made the game listed as employees. But, we don’t care about that right now.

Brock has spiky brown hair, a black-green-orange shirt, and gray pants. Talk to him, and he’ll tell you that he has a gift for the Celadon Gym Leaders, but couldn’t give it to them. So, he’ll give you the gift instead – the Pewter Crunchies Famous Snack. It’s a very useful item; it heals all status conditions of a single Pokemon. Brock will remember that this snack can make you thirsty, so he’ll give you some tea as well.
