Chuck's title is simply "His Roaring Fists Do the Talking".

Chuck intimidates his opponent before battle by telling how his Pokémon "will crush stones and shatter bones," then lifts and tosses a boulder.

He enjoys a good battle, but after losing Chuck vows to train 24 hours a day. If you talk to his wife outside his gym after you defeat him, she will give you HM02, Fly. She also comments that she is grateful that her husband would be doing more training, since he was getting "a little flabby". Also, Chuck is known to spar with his fighting Pokémon.

Trainers in his gym: Black Belt Yoshi, Black Belt Lao, Black Belt Nob, Black Belt Lung.

In addition to the Storm Badge, Chuck gives out TM01, Dynamicpunch.
