What a weird episode! It's really odd that the writers decides to put Santa Clause in Pokémon! Having Santa Claus in the Pokémon world felt very strange, he dosen't belong in there. Team Rocket were just annoying in this episode, I didn't like Jessie comtemplating revenge on Santa Clause.
This episode also featured my least favorite Pokémon Jynx, who caused controversy after the English dub's airing of this episode. Later Game Freak had to change the colour of Jynx. There's another version of this episode of Japan where Jynx is re-coloured Purple, too bad we won't get the edited version of that episode in here.
Even though I didn't like the concept of the whole episode, I did like some scenes from it. I liked the scene where Ash tries to catch Jynx. Ash sends out Pikachu to battle the Jynx and catch her, but she grabs him and then tries to kiss him. Misty tried to warn Pikachu about Jynx's Sweet Kiss attack, but it was too late! Jynx managed to give a Sweet kiss on Pikachu's cheek,(Ewww!) making him fall asleep. It's cool when Ash's Charmender came out and owned that annoying Jynx. The scene where Ash meets the Lapras was nice, it's interesting how the Lapras could talk in human speech.
