Meanwhile Ash and co. see a man and his Machoke sparing and after the session he bursts into tears saying he is proud of Machoke. He then sees Ash and goes drill sergent on him, Misty and Brock and orders them to march. After getting to a building they notice the man lagging behind them. After some students greet him he introduces himself as Chuck, the leader of Cianwood Gym. After a hearty meal the time has finally come. Ash battles Chuck not only to burn off calories but also to win a Storm Badge. Will Ash win or get knocked out?



  • Chuck


  • The dub title was named after the 70's song Macho Man by The Village People.
  • The unnamed Gym Assistant was voiced by Marc Thompson.
  • This is the season finale of Pokémon: Johto League Champions.
  • According to Chuck's wife, the Whirl Islands are between Cianwood City and Olivine City, but Ash and co. plus Team Rocket had just made the trip between Olivine and Cianwood and didn't see them then.


  • "I'm just... I'm just so proud of that Machoke! (burst into tears) That Submission attack was absolutely perfect! You hear me? Perfect!"

Chuck proud of his Machoke.

  • Chuck: "What's the matter? You kids out of shape or somethin'?"

Misty: "Yeah, that's right. We're the one's who're out of shape."

  • Ash: "Hey, Then you must be..."

Chuck: "The Cianwood Gym Leader. I'm the meanest, leanest, toughest, roughest, fightin' Pokémon master in all the land. But you can call me Chuck."

  • "Well, I don't know about the fighting machine part but you don't have to tell me twice when it comes to food."


  • Chuck's Wife: "So, you're here to battle for a Storm Badge?"

Ash: "Uh, yeah."
Chuck's Wife: "Well, you shouldn't have any trouble beating that flabby old husband of mine."
Ash: "Oh, uh."
Chuck: "Hey! Who're you calling "Flabby"?"
Chuck's Wife: "(giggles) I have plenty more in the kitchen if anybody wants a second helping."

  • "I'm proud of you Machoke. You put in a good battle today. You're a champion in my book, win or lose."

Chuck after Machoke was beaten.
