I dunno who those two are, but yeah, i did enjoy it.
You must be joking! You don't know the greatest Pungeon Master of our time?! Emile C. A. Conroy, the uncrowned king of bad puns and bad singing, and the greatest Pokémon Let's Player ever to grace YouTube?!

You truly don't know who Chuggaaconroy is? Oh, my. He's made a ton of let's plays on YouTube, including Pokémon ones. And I guarantee you, he's even better at puns than RP, or at least at an even level.

LemME put it this way: chuggaaconroy is, literally, one of my YouTube heroes, and was one of the inspirations of mine to even think about creating YouTube videos in the first place.
Furthermore, chuggaaconroy (and another YouTuber by the name of Super Skarmory) were actually the ones who brought me back into the franchise after I'd kinda lost interest in Pokemon post Ruby/Sapphire.

If it hadn't been for chugga, I wouldn't be here.

Also, he's an incredibly big deal, given the large amount of subscribers he has, and I would love to do a collab video with him, some day.
Thinking about it, if he doesn't finish his Platinum Bonus videos by the time I reach the postgame in my Platinum LP, that could be a very real possibility.

5:40 - "That'd be kinda cruel if they gave a random trainer a shiny"
I believe NPCs have the same chance to have a shiny as wild pokemon in most generations. I also recall Generation 3 could have a shiny on the intro screen before you've even named yourself.
Yeah, I am aware. I’ve actually had the wild Zigzagoon that was attacking Birch in Emerald be a shiny before, and Wally can catch a shiny Ralts, which he immediately trades for a regular one, like a dingus.

I believe that's considered one of the most frustrating by shiny hunters
It was also my first ever shiny encounter.

The second one was a shiny encounter with a wild Pidgey in FireRed...before I had the chance to buy Poke Balls.

I was furious with shiny Pokémon for a long time.
