Kyle started 'TheKingNappy' channel June of 2011 with his first Let's Play, MiNi Ninjas, following Dante's Inferno. Nearly a year into his YouTube channel he starts his first Pokémon Let's Play; Pokémon Sapphire. In the first episode, Kyle says that "I wanted to do a Pokémon let's play for the longest time" and thus a PokéTuber was born. At this point, his channel is still not only based on Pokémon because during the let's play he is uploading other games including Borderlands 2 and Black Ops 2. After Kyle was done with Pokémon Sapphire he started Pokémon Black and White co-op with his good friend, Kristen also known as CuddleOfDeath on YouTube while continuing Black Ops 2. Gradually, McNeal's channel started to become Pokémon oriented while playing the other Pokémon main games as well as making Pokéraps and his most memorable top 5 series. As of the 5th of August 2017, TheKingNappy channel has 478,006 subscribers and 204,035,460 views. As of January 28, 2018, TheKingNappy channel reached 500,000 subscribers.

He almost finished his 2015 Stormsilver Egglocke, losing at the end of the second elite four, around level 80.
He used to do Wonder Trade Wednesdays in 2015 and 2016, Free for Alls in 2015, and Pokémon Showdown Sundays, all very popular series.
He started a very successful Pokéroast series in 2017, where two YouTubers would get Pokémon and have to roast the others. He canceled the series early, but it will make a triumphant return in 2018, stated via Twitter.
This channel was made by Kyle so he can make more gaming content, however, this channel consists of everything but Pokémon. An example of what type of games he does on this channel is Outlast, Skyrim, etc.
Sexual misconduct controversy Edit
On 31st March 2019, another PokeTuber named HoodlumScrafty posted an image to Twitter explaining the relationship between himself and Nappy. In the image, he explained how Nappy (21 yrs old at the time) had feelings towards Callum (16 yrs old at the time). Long story short, Callum eventually agreed to be in a relationship as he didn't have many friends and didn't want to lose them. Shortly after the tweet was posted, several other PokeTubers came forward about Nappy. Nappy eventually deleted his social media accounts in response to this event, and went live for an hour on the night of March 31st to provide his perspective on the situation. Shortly after, SacredAlmighty, another PokeTuber, posted a video of his perspective of the situation regarding Nappy, Dekadurr/Nathan, and MudkipMama/Jamie.
