Return to the main Chuggaaconroy Funny Moments index here.



  • The way he says "Teddy is loafing around!"
    • Though this has lost its charm somewhat after one of Chugga's cats, who served as Teddy's namesake, passed away at the start of February 2016.
  • Freaking out whenever anyone uses healing items.
  • Turning into a Grammar Nazi. "It's no use reasoning with people who don't have any sense of grammar."
  • Being jealous of Wally over everything. All the Wally moments can be viewed here.
  • Saying "Fufufu" as the letters, as in "F-U F-U F-U".
    • This is, however, averted in the final bonus episode, since he doesn't want Pokémaniac Steve F-ing him.
  • "Bro Balls!"note 
    • There's one time in which it gets subverted note . Chugga commenting on it is pretty funny as well.
  • Using Maxie's anime dub voice.
    • And, as an extension, using a gruff voice when reading Archie's lines. Especially when switching between the two of them while they're having a conversation.
  • Purposely trying to invoke his previous Pokémon LPs by throwing normal Poké Balls at the legendaries, hoping to catch them in hilarious ways.
  • Advertisement:
  • Commenting on the disparity between characters' sprites in the top-down view and their appearance in battles. In particular how bald sprites grow hair in an instant (accompanied by a "NNNNNGGGGH!" of effort) when they appear in battles.

Episode 1:

  • "OH MY GOD CARDBOARD BOXES HAVE TAKEN OVER THE WORLD I ALWAYS KNEW THEY WERE EVIL! They said I was crazy, they said it didn't - okay, okay, I won't play that out any longer than I need to."
  • He recites the news report on the main character's TV in a funny voice.
  • The very first battle is against a wild Zigzagoon. There is a 5% chance that the first Zigzagoon will have an Oran Berry and use it. Guess what happens? "Wild ZIGZAGOON's ORAN BERRY restored health!"
  • Professor Birch says aplomb. Chugga made it sound like a sound effect.
  • When Professor Birch suggests that EMILE meets his daughter May, Chugga tells him NO three times!
  • During his first rival battle, he says he hopes the battle will end soon. Immediately after he says that, Moegami (his Torchic) is knocked out by May's Mudkip. Sure, it was a critical hit, but still!
    • Even better: in later dialogue, the game covers for him and pretends it didn't happen. Of course, Chugga lampshades it.

Episode 2:

  • When buying Poké Balls for the first time, he wants to show the Premier Ball trick by buying ten Poké Balls at once. Only, since he lost the first rival battle in episode 1, he doesn't have enough money to do so…
  • Chugga when he catches Lotad:
    Chugga: I swear, if this fails just like my first trainer battle did I swear I'm gonna—(catches) well, OK, I guess I'm not gonna do whatever it is I was going to say that you will never know that may or may not have been illegal and may or may not have involved giant wooden mallets.
  • Chugga noticing his newly-caught Lotad is at a very low level.
    Chugga: In other words, this thing is a tad low...
  • Chugga's increasing jealousy at Wally, due to him getting a Pokémon from Norman (the player's, AKA Chugga's dad) as well as getting a free Poké Ball and Potion.
    Scott: I'm looking for talented trainers. I'm sorry I wasted your time. (walks off)
  • "And I see in my reflection…that I have the dumbest hat in the land. YES."

Episode 3:

  • At the beginning, he gives an in-depth explanation of how Wurmple evolution is, indeed, random. He ends it off with "But what do I know? I can't even spell Beautifly right."
  • One word: Billy. (starts at 3:41)
    • For those who can't get the link working in their browser (or are just lazy), Chuggaa adopts a Deep South accent when he sees a youngster named, well, Billy and his Zigzagoon, and engages in a monologue about said youngster being white trash and wanting to eat the Zigzagoon, followed by him apologizing to his viewers in Alabama.
  • "Typically, Ladies have a lot of money, though, so beat them up... THAT SOUNDED AMAZING." (laughs)
    • And his reaction to her using a full restore.
  • His explanation of Azurill's gender ratio. "In other words, it grows a dick." note 
  • He tries to find a wild Slakoth. It takes him over half an hour. (TEDDY was worth it, though.)

Episode 5:

  • His Zigzagoon, "SLAVINATOR".

Episode 6:

  • The voice he gives to Mr. Briney, which sounds like a drunken Master Roshi.
  • His fight with May.
    Chugga: What is it with everybody thinking that May has so much experience and thinking that May is so great and- HOW DO YOU HAVE A TORKOAL?
    • Especially the end, where May pits her water-type Mudkip against his fire-type Combusken...and uses Growl.

Episode 7:

  • Chugga becomes an announcer for the "Wingull Derby", aka Mr. Briney chasing his pet Wingull around his coffee table.
  • "More neglected than Steve! More forgotten than the second A in my username! She was...ACOOLTENT. Left to rot in my PC for all eternity."
    • Followed by this:
    Episode 7 - Episode 7

Episode 8

  • Brawly's Makuhita (whom he thinks is the most powerful member of Brawly's team) takes out everyone but Slavinator. Cue the poison from ACOOLTENT's Poison Sting defeating it after Slavintor is sent in. Chugga bursts out laughing, and keeps laughing while Slavinator is leveling up. (It went from Lv. 3 to Lv. 7 just from that!)
  • The "trendy saying" he got the first time he played the game was "NOTHING LIVING". (This time around it was "REFRESHING DREAM". Which is not linked to "BOOK", by the way.)
    Old man: Is it true that there's a deep link between "REFRESHING DREAM" and "BOOK"?
    Chugga: No, but I think there's a link between "REFRESHING DREAM" and Roxanne.
  • "Thank you so much good Samaritan bandana-wearer".

Episode 9

  • Trying to read all the names of the people who suggested the name Kappa for his Lotad.
  • Scott's third appearance.

    Chugga:...fat man in a Hawaiian shirt.
  • "The Heart of the Cards sucks."

  • *Scott shows up* "And WOAH, hey, I um, I wasn't saying anything, I'm a, I'm a good honest trainer, right? I am." *Scott asks if he's friends with Wally* "No, no no no, I'm not." *Scott compliments Emile for beating him* "...All I did was press A!"
  • Giddy's "stories". And Chugga getting angry at his grammar and insulting the translators.
    • STUDY is so amusing, don't you agree? Chugga: "NO, you nerd."
    • "Okay...even though you're probably going to get devoured by Zigzagoons doing that..."
    • MAKING is so desirable! Don't you agree? Chugga: "Making what? Makin' babies?"
    • MEDITITE is so pretty! Chugga: *beat* "...Get away from me..."
    • TOYS is so magical!
    • "What is the bottom of the sea like, YES or NO?"
    • "What kind of a story is this? This is no story!"
    • I brought crayons with 120 colors. Don't you think that's nice? "You bet I think that's nice!" Awww.

Chugga then spends the rest of the fight healing Teddy when needed all while Manectric loses a few HP every turn thanks to the burn Moegami inflicted upon Manectric using Ember. Manectric eventually falls, leaving Teddy the victor.

Episode 15

  • "Give me a TM!" "Screw faith in my Pokémon, I want a TM!"
  • "And that is an epic playtime!" His game play time at the end of the video was 13:37.

Episode 16

  • "BEHOLD MY STRENGTH!" ...and then he complains about people quoting him.
  • Chugga encounters a Pokémaniac and spends the majority of the battle creeped out by the fact that he put on the bottom half of a Charizard costume just to battle himnote . Of course, once the battle ends, he notices the Trainer's name is Steve and reacts predictably.
    Steve: Don't forget what you've done to me! I'll make it so you can't forget!
    Chugga: ...Oh my God! HE'S OUT TO GET ME! HE WANTS TO GET REVENGE ON ME FOR HOPING HE WOULD DIE! NOOOOOOOO! HE'S FOREVER REGISTERED IN MY CELL PHONE! Ahhh...we found a Carbos, that'll raise overall speed...oh my God, I gotta start sleeping with one eye open...
    • *enters battle* "And -" *sees Steve's costume* "......keep your fetishes to yourself, man!"
    • Chugga backpedals about Steve wearing a Charizard-cosplay during battle:
    "I dunno, actually- You know what? Nevermind, I take back everything I said about this guy. That would get me really pumped for battle if I look like a frikkin' Charizard! I mean, seriously! If you looked like Charizard, how would you not be utterly pumped for battle, I know I would be."
  • "I am immune to your bodily functions!"note 

Episode 18

  • Right as he's about to remove the meteorite from the machine, he gets a call from a random trainer. "This machine could have caused a volcanic eruption, that would have engulfed TWO! NEIGHBORING! CITIES! And you think it's more important to tell me that your Wingull won...and was spectacular."

  • *I think I was speaking in badges!*

Episode 22

  • "I bet you wouldn't be questioning your authority if you lost to Wally!"
  • Chugga's Vigoroth is one attack away from KOing Norman's Slaking, leading to one of the best Hope Spots in the LP:
    "C'mon, finish him! I've go-" *Norman uses a Hyper Potion on the Slaking, completely healing it* "YOU ASS! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?"

Episode 23

    *Chugga then surfs upwards and encounters an old woman*
    Chugga: Eugghhhhhh.
  • After a close call, Chugga was hoping to keep Acooltent alive at 8HP; it was looking good and Acooltent's speed should have let it get the surf that would decide the match, then Chugga opens his mouth.

(the "player whited out text" shows up) What? THAT COUNTED AS A LOSS?! HOW COME IT DOESN'T COUNT AS A LOSS FOR THEM?! TABITHA WAS DOWN! Tabitha lost all of his Pokémon or her Pokémon or its Pokémon... HOW DID THAT COUNT AS A LOSS?!

    Chugga: (starts surfing) Hey everybody it's Chuggaaconroy, welcome back to more Pokémon Emerald! In the last episode, we (wild encounter) went underwater for the first time, and (trainer battle) caught ourselves a Relicanth and got a Water Stone so that we could make (double battle) Kappa into a Ludicolo, and (trainer battle) in this episode I'm about to say how much I freaking hate all these underleveled swimmers that aren't even worth the time to fight as we get here to the Abandoned Ship.

  • While facing a cool trainer named Vito (who Chuggaaconroy believes is part of the Winstrate family he fought in an earlier episode), his Shiftry used Pound on Altair (Chuggaaconroy's Altaria). His comments on that were funny:
    Chuggaconroy: ...and I was just like "well you know what"— *Shiftry uses Pound* ...Pound?! You really just used pound on me?! What do you take me for? Were the... Look-Look at his hands! He's got, like, little leaf-flippers for hands, you think hitting me with one of those with Pound is going to hurt? Ugh... But yeah...

Bonus Episode 3

  • The Kyogre uses Sheer Cold (a one-hit KO move, which only hit 30% of the time) against Kappa, which is chosen because it quad-resists Water-type attacks (Kyogre is a Water-type)... and succeeds. Then it does it again immediately against Teddy.
    • Then later uses it against Moegami... and again on Pandora right when it gets sent out...
    • Sheer Cold is an Ice-type move. Not that it matters...
  • The Kyogre's AI deciding to, for all intents and purposes, TROLL Chugga during the first fight by spamming Rest.
    • He even lampshades this, claiming that Kyogre is constantly trying to go back to sleep as if it's bored of the fight.
  • This exchange at about 8:30:
    Chugga: *Kyogre uses Rest at full health* Okay, seriously. Are you going to even attack me? I've been sitting here with a weakness to water with 16 HP for like, 6 minutes now and you aren't doing a dang thing to me, and- *Kyogre uses Sheer Cold*. Shut up. Shut up. You going down to the comment box right now, shut up.

Bonus Episode 5

  • While looking for items in Artisan Cave:
    Chugga: "I've had a feeling. (Singing/Screaming) I'VE GOT A FEELING! Wow, that was quite possibly the worst thing I have ever done."

Bonus Episode 6

  • His annoyance at Nintendo for their horribly irritating way of accessing Southern Island in Emerald, and his description of how he did it. It ended up costing him $140 total in order to actually do it.
  • Latias defeats itself with Struggle because it has no attacks that can hurt Pandora, the Pokémon Chugga was using during the battle.
    • And then, when he does catch it, he does so with a Nest Ball (again) while it's at full health.
  • "Yoda the pirate, I don't know!"
  • The end of this episode:
    Chugga: We've caught all the legendary Pokémon, I don't think there's really anything else left for us to do in this game, so...I think we're about done with the aftergame here. I don't think there's really anything else left for us to do. (Beat) ...OH WAIT!
    (Cut to a shot of his Match Call app of the Pokénav, zooming in on Pokémaniac Steve, who wants a rematch as a dramatic "DUN DUN DUNNNNNN" plays)

Final Bonus Episode

  • When fighting Steven's Claydol, Kappa manages to land a critical hit Waterfall on it. Then Steven uses a Full Restore. Then Kappa lands another critical Waterfall. Then Steven uses Full Restore again. Then after damaging it once and having it set up a Light Screen, he kills it with, you guessed it, another critical hit Waterfall.
  • Steven sends out Metagross next. Kappa proceeds to crit again, for its fourth crit in five attacks.

How well does it match the trope?
