Chorocojo, previously known as Red Chocobo, is a popular screenshot Let’s Player on Something Awful. He is most well-known for his Let’s Plays of the Pokémon series.

All of his works are generally done with input/collaboration from fellow goon Zorak—a team they call "An Orbital Grouse".

His Crystal Let's Play has been referenced twice in the main Pokémon series, due to the lead translator of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl being a Something Awful regular.

Games Chorocojo has Let's Played:

His Let's Plays provide examples of:

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: All over the place, but in particular is Lucas from the Platinum LP, who thinks Lady is a vampire.
  • Badass Adorable: Most of Roxy’s team. Sammy’s Pokémon qualify as well.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Misty when she saves Roxy from Gatorface at the end of the Crystal LP.
  • Berserk Button: Starmies.
    • In the Endless Ocean LP, Chorocojo gets very angry any time bottlenose dolphins appear. They apparently have trolled him in real life.
      • He also gets mad when animals that don't make sense show up on Zorak's boat.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: When a cute Pokemon is in trouble, expect Roxy to get VERY mad.
  • The Cameo: This image from the first visit to the Battle Frontier in the Platinum LP has Roxy, Misty, and her Blaziken visible in the upper left.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Sammy and, to a lesser extent, Roxy.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Misty curses quite a bit, but the most notable one was her giant “FUCK” when she discovered she needed Wailord and Relicanth in order to continue her search for the Legendary Golems.
  • Continuity Nod: The FireRed LP particularly has a number of references to the earlier ones, such as a news ticker referring to Wailmer corpses on the Hoenn shore.
    • Also draws attention to a pair of Team Rocket execs in the Fire Red / Leaf Green versions that first appeared in Gen 2 (Gold / Silver). Recognizable pretty much only because of their teams.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Roxy in the Crystal LP nearly goes into a coma when her baby Smoochum hatches.
  • Expanded Universe: There are several minor facts and sidestories about characters and events either that never come up over the Let's Plays or are added as interludes by Zorak. (i.e. The theory of Lady being a vampire or Red's random drawings. [1])
  • Flanderization: Misty's weight. She starts off looking like the default protagonist, but becomes more and more overweight over the course of the LP (without really eating anything except for a Zigzagoon the readers pestered RC to catch) and remains plump for every other LP.
  • Gamer Chick: Sammy.
  • G-Rated Drug: From the Platinum LP, Chansey eggs.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: Misty.
  • Hilariously Abusive Childhood: Implied for Misty.
  • Hot Skitty-On-Wailord Action: Invoked. Misty briefly experiments with breeding her Pokémon, mating her Seviper with a Pikachu. It’s also touched on with one of Sammy’s favorite shows, “Will They Breed.”
  • I'm Taking Her Home with Me: Roxy, with most of the cute Pokémon she comes across.
  • Interspecies Romance: How Sammy views Bill's "obsession" with Pokémon.
    • Cargo Ship: Her opinion on Celio's "obsession" with gemstones is very similar.
  • Pokémon Platinum: Platinum Version If one were to look at the archived version of the Platinum LP, almost all of the art has been colored and touched up.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Chorocojo himself has a moment of this in FireRed when his Kabutops is hit by a Guillotine attack, which he had used frequently in the Crystal LP.

  Is... is this what I've been doing to people? D:

  • Name's the Same: The protagonist in the Emerald Let's Play has the same name as the second gym leader in Kanto. This was referenced by at least one reader when Roxy was just about to challenge the gym leader Misty to a battle.
  • Neoclassical Punk Zydeco Rockabilly: According to the fake Wikipedia page on the Elite Four, the Elite Four once created an album which attempted to “combine the genres of Metal, Electronica, and Country Western by the medium of Japanese Whaler-Ship Foghorns.”
  • Only in It For the Money: Sammy when she decides to battle the Elite Four.
  • Otaku Surrogate: Sammy. Most of her adventures are started either by running out of juice or wanting to buy a new video game.
    • She also goes out to kick Team Rocket's ass because news coverage of the Silph Incident is airing instead of her anime, and she wants it back.
  • Re Cut: Chorocojo has recut his LPs a few times, cleaning up the art and coloring them. His Platinum playthrough was totally colored before it was archived.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Inverted with his Platinum play through. Lady is savvy and cocky, Jorge is overly caffeinated and eager.
  • Shout-Out: Many of them to various video games in the FireRed Let's Play, due to Sammy being a Gamer Chick.
  • Smug Snake: Misty.
  • Take That: Silver, the rival who abused his Pokemon and only wanted strong ones, was nicknamed Smogon in the Crystal LP.
    • The Platinum LP has several jabs at his fans, who always insist on him choosing the female character.
  • Word Salad Title: The Elite Four apparently released a song titled “Catching Tadpoles with an Acoustic Guitar That is Also a Death-Robot Possessed by the Soul of Genghis Khan.” The music video got ten million views on YouTube.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Smogon, the rival from the Crystal LP. His hitting Roxy becomes something of a Running Gag.
  • Why Did It Have To Be Giant Metal Birds With Swords For Feathers: Sammy has a deathly fear of Skarmory due to a childhood incident (which, incidentally, is also why she spends so much time inside playing video games).
