Brock in RBY

Today, I was reading on a different website about the difficulty of certain gym leaders people had in the games, and one of the more common names I found listed for Kanto is Brock.
I will honestly say that I thought it was surprising. This not a knock down on Brock, but I never found him difficult. Even if you had a disadvantage against him (starting with either Charmander or Pikachu), I felt there was a few options to defeat him.
In Yellow, Mankey and Nidoran were purposely made available early on to counter Brock. Nidoran's moveset was altered as well, learning Double Kick at level 12.
The best bet in the RB to counter Brock, if you did not start with Bulbasaur or Squirtle, was Caterpie. Once it evolved into Butterfree, it was capable of learning Confusion (anyone who has played Gen 1 knows how OP Psychic types were).
Kanto for me didn't get challenging for me til the second gym (Misty's Starmie was awful) and then there's Sabrina's gym which was just as ridiculously hard if not harder.
