    Default Unintentionally Hilarious Moment in the Anime

    Narm as defined by TvTropes is:

    So, what moments do you believe qualify?

    I would have placed it earlier with Ash and Alain's first meeting. After losing, Ash literally makes a face that looks like he was relieving himself after having to hold it in all day.

    This is the first scene that comes to my mind, as well. Ash looked like he was high or stoned, and his groaning didn't help in the least.

    The second scene that comes to mind is from XY&Z43 (Japanese version; I haven't seen it dubbed), when everyone was cheering on Ash and Alain as they rushed into the megalith to rescue Chespie. The way everyone shouted, "Go!" (or some variation of it) was just so over-the-top shounen that it had me laughing.

    Let's just say every single word out of Sawyer's mouth. In Japan, he sounds like a natural ten year old, but in the dub, he sounds like my best friend while he went through puberty.

    Isn't that like...all the dub?

    Even Lillie's voice at 'No, look out!' which was meant to be serious and 'Are you OK?' which are meant to be taken at least somewhat seriously, but the delivery is so off on both.

    -That moment when Ash and Greninja are getting tortured but transform into Ash Greninja after Ash's speech and when Greninja has his mouth open, he looks like a duck.

    -James' face when he and Jessie are looking at Giovanni being possessed in Operation Tempest

    -That edit of Ash's crucifixion looks so out of place

    -TR vs TP not airing & postponed eternally/being replaced by Operation Tempest yet can air the Team Flare arc 5 years later (yes I'm still salty about it)

    Ash telling his friends to shut up in Dewford. It was so OOC and downright funny.

    Steven's entrance in the TF arc. I honestly call it one of the best moments of the whole anime, but it's also one of the most ridiculous things ever in the best way possible.

    Pikachu's annual betrayal stunts. They happen so often that it's like a meme now...

    Team Rocket getting away from the Twerps with jetpack in Best Wishes for the first time. It was just so unexpectant when you're used to see them getting zapped into the sky every episode

    Torterra using Rock Climb. It was a death sentence most times it was used, so it was sad and kind of funny at the same time.

    Arceus getting stuck in that cement stuff in the 12th film was oddly funny to me hee hee. For the 'god' of Pokemon to almost die that way seemed so random. ^^;

    If Ash's Pikachu can combine Iron Tail with Electro Ball then I don't see why Ash's Torterra can't combine Rock Climb with an additional move,Rock Climb looks impressive but problem is the finish of the move.

    Yeah it was a tactic that Ash used back when it was a Grotle facing Frontier Brain Palmer,but what I want to know is why can't Torterra use an additional move with Rock Climb if Ash's Pikachu can use Irontail and Electroball at the same time.

    Because wouldn't just charging towards your opponent while using Energy Ball or Leaf Storm more effective? Rock Climb not only opens yourself up for a direct hit, it also provides a height advantage for the opponent, meaning charging forward is more effective than Rock Climb. The only way Rock Climb can theoretically work is using it alongside a move like Grass Knot to first immobilize the opponent and then charge forward, and even then it gets countered by projectiles that come out of the opponent's mouth.

    I think that was meant to be a funny scene lol

    I think a more unintentionally funny scene would be Kenny making Dawn travel with him if he beats Ash in a battle, Kenny beating Ash in a battle and Dawn still going with Ash.

    Even more hilarious, she didn't even tell it to his face, but left him a letter. By the time he read it, she was already gone. xD

    I almost forgot about Steven's magnificent entrance, but yes, seeing him enter the fray riding on the back of his Metagross was totally over the top (and he was so nonchalant and cool about it, too, as if that were normal for him).

    However, I think it was topped by the Gym Leaders' Big Darn Heroes entrance in XY&Z 42. That one actually had me nearly bust a gut laughing. It was just so...shounen anime.
