A very wierd episode. I can't belive they called it Delibirds Dielima. And its in the Chronicals seires? But nice to see a SKarmory and Ashs Johtos and Brocks Geodude and Pysduck. Noctowl, Cyndaquil, Bulbasaur, Chicorita, Totoidle, Pikachu, Geodude, Togipei and Psyduck where there main pokemon we know but Wobberfet and Meowth didn't appear much did they?

Wee, Noctowl, he rocked. Pretty funny at poitns and the music was a nice change from the Hoenn music i'm used to well that and the Raikou music.

Apoim, Skarmory, Gloom, Delibird, Stantler all amde appearences and they all had nice voices. I like Apoms its kinda like Skiplooms.

Totodile and his snowballs were funny though.

But the narrator was annoying! I was luck SHUT UP! I DON'T CARE!

No major bad points except the narrator.

Snowlax Snowman, great title (Scarcasum)

Wee, Ashs Johto pokemon, YAY! And Geodude and Psyduck.

The snorlax snowman was cute though. It was funny when it came to life though and Psyduck fell over when they were funny toward the snowlax.

Why does a Snowman need food? That doesn't make sense but they were riding the snowman off the cliff. 0_o

Hee, it went to sleep and the lights int he sky were jst kinda wierd but that classic music came on then a wirlpool came. I was like WTF that was random.


Magicarp and alright music at the same time and chincho, quilfish, horsea, mantine, seadra, tentacruel, tentacool. All apeared at one point.

No team rocket pokemon this time. :( Not even Meowth. There were loads of Snoalx Snowmen. Awwww.

Atleast they had different music this timenot Hoenn music different music and none of the Raikou Music either.

Pikachu rolling was quiet funny. But it kinda confuse dme when the snowman was suddenly normal again.

But both of the epsidoes today were good.

I thought this second part of todays Chronicle's was awesome. Beautifully drawn and animated, even the music was OK.
+ Snorlax snowman wth?
+ Psyduck pwns
+ Aurora Borealis
+ Seel & Dewgong, Tentacool & Tentacruel, Remoraid, Mantine, Horsea, Quilfish, Chinchou, Magikarp, Horsea & Seadra, Lapras, and even a Dratini! Totally cool :D
+ Togepi's back, aw cutey

The first one was kind of boring though

1st June 2005, 5:08 PM
One question: Has the name changed AGAIN?

1st June 2005, 5:13 PM
I missed it, because of the stupid Sky+ planner removing it..

What?! I thought the narrator for this episode was great! He had a really deep shrewd voice similar to all those narrators who covered christmas specials of films and cartoons etc. Good standard me thinks.

Give the dub credit this time round, it appears all voices in this episode were all kept from what we've heard before in the dub (I think, I can't quite remember Aipoms), so there's some sort of consistancy achieved on 4kids part here for once. I mean based on recent performance this could have been a total disaster but they seemed to have done their research for this one.

As for the episode itself I thought it would be quite childish, but I actually enjoyed it, reminded of almost Tom and Jerry standard with the amount of goofy mistakes trying to retain all the presents before midnight. Meowth and Wobbeffut didn't do all that much apart from getting pwned by a Skarmory (although unjustified!).

1st June 2005, 5:32 PM
Yeah equally as enjoyable as the first, I was suprised how the two Lapras's managed to rescue all pokémon, including Snorlax, that should have broken their backs! I mean in reality this had a completely pointless story to it other than spending time with an odd looking Snorlax watching the sky at night. And yes I agree the singing background music was quite nice, went well with the episode.

Once again all voices were kept as previously heard, including Dewgong and Seal who only made small cameo appearances. All apart from Snorlax, who managed to say his first part of his name with an actual harsh snoring effect, and then the second part with a slightly higher pitched "lax!". Hmm odd.

I don't want to keep comparing the dub with the original but considering the amount of stick they recieved with the Raikou special, I think they managed to do a lot better here, although it's not like it's all that hard to cover a few pokémon voices, not all that much of a translation needed really.

The narrator wasn't as good the one from the Delibird episode, more like the one now heard in Hoenn. Other than that both episodes were light-hearted and enjoyable enough.

I liked both the shorts. No cameos by any human characters. (no offense)

18th June 2006, 12:34 AM
I just got done watching both, I thought they were cute, how Totodile started the plot on both episodes 0_o lol more to love of Totodile!

18th June 2006, 12:35 AM
Not too bad brought back alot of Johto memories.. wow do I miss Ash's old Chikorita... Bayleef is just as good but I really liked chikorita.

I enjoyed the snorlax snowman more then Delibird's Delimma. Of course best part for me was when the whirlpool froze and they saw all those water types . It made me smile when Cyndaquil puffed it's flames in responce to Qwilfish puffing up :)

Was also great to see a Dratini as you don't get to see one much..

Reminded me very much of the old christmas short. "the Snowman"

Was overall, a feel good laid back fun filled episode :)

a few posts back someone mentioned the snow snorlax was back again.... I'm pretty sure the whole thing was a dream.

18th June 2006, 12:35 AM
i found the first short incredibly stupid. The narrator + the storyline of Delibird's Dilemma made me feel like I was watching a show out of Nick Jr. (which is a network for toddlers)

However, I found Snorlax Snowmen! very,very cute. I loved the music in both shorts. It's a refreshing change from the mainstream series music.

These were enjoyable to watch. Nothing remarkable, but fun nonetheless.

Only thing strange is watching them in the summer........

I felt the same way.. would have been more enjoyable during the Holidays :) It almost put me in the christmas spirit, but the heat of summer killed that lol

18th June 2006, 3:09 AM
These were horrible. I hate ones where it's just Pokemon saying their names for 60 minutes. I had to turn it off ><..hopefully next week will be better.

18th June 2006, 3:40 AM
I liked both, but did not like the voice of the Snorlax Snowman.

18th June 2006, 3:42 AM
ick...the Snorlax was weird...because they literally made it snore in its name... It was *snooore*Lax! ...uck. In the older episodes it would at least say the word 'Snore' and not make the sound...x___x
Other then that, the episode was adorable and Pikachu-filled. x3

18th June 2006, 3:48 AM
Hmm...Christmas...in June!

Well I've seen weirder things *coughArbokSeviperincidentcough* Whoops, where did that come from? Anywho, the first part was pretty cute. I happen to like some of the Christmas vacation episodes (seeing as though I have some of them on tape). But the second part wasn't so good IMO. Snorlax's voice just threw me off a couple of times (1 year later and I still can't stand Snorlax's voice).

18th June 2006, 3:55 AM
I thought this episode was adorable!! I really liked the 2nd part with the Snorlax! :) I wish Meowth and Wobbufet had been in it more, though!

I'm sorry, These episodes were Horrid...The onlt thing I liked about them was Cyndaquil, Totodile, and Chikorita. Thats it.

19th June 2006, 3:44 AM
This was a very nice change of pace. I LOVED seeing Chikorita. Oh how I missed it.....anyways also great to see Bulbasaur, Cyndaquil, Totodile, Noctowl, Psyduck, Togepi, Delibird, and Geodude again. Its been so long since I've seen a new Pikachu short. These ones were very cute and enjoyable to watch.

20th June 2006, 12:06 AM
Except for the narration in "Delibird's Dilemma", which I thought was too cutesy and unnecessary, I did like this two Christmas episodes. Too bad that NONE of the Christmas episodes are running in July, when at least we have the Christmas in July shopping extravaganza, but oh well. I think what made me like these Christmas episodes was that I got to see Psyduck, Cyndaquil, Totodile, and Chikorita again. I've been missing the lot of them (well, Chikorita as Bayleef too) so much since Johto ended. :( At least we'll get to see Psyduck (and Geodude) again this coming weekend. I also liked the song in this episode. Both were nice specials, and at least they put me in a bit of a holiday mood. I loved seeing Wobbuffet too. :)

I did find it a bit odd that this special was so obviously dubbed later, since both Wobbuffet and Snorlax don't sound like they did during the Chikorita era, as compared to the direct-to-video first two Christmas specials. This had to be dubbed fairly recently at the earliest, just based on Snorlax alone.

I liked these because they had a nice, light-hearted, Pikachu Short feel to them. The Delibird episode was cool, and interesting. And I enjoyed watching the 'Snowlax'.


7th April 2008, 6:08 PM
They were only simple but were quite enjoyable

27th January 2010, 12:40 PM
Motest episode. The only thing I loved from this episode is all of those Snorlax in the snow and that Pikachu and the others saw them.

28th February 2011, 6:35 PM
Delibird's Dilema - It was great to see the Pokemon work together to help Delibird get back its missing presents by midnight. It was great seeing Aipom go from being not helpful, to helping them out with the final present. Psyduck was very funny


Snorlax Snowmen - It was cool seeing Snorlax come to life from a snowman and be a completely different color. I actually like that color better. It was cool to see Snorlax use Blizzard to freeze the Whirlpool and turn it into an ice version.

Wow the animation here rocked, especially the aurora in the night sky. I guess that the white Snorlax was a reference to Frosty the Snowman, which I liked. The whirlpool scene with all those water pokemon was amazing. :D

15th September 2016, 10:47 PM
The Delibird short was kawaii since we saw Pikachu and the gang help Delibird get back its missing presents with the help of what I assume was Ash's Aipom too. :)

17th September 2016, 1:29 PM
I preferred the second part with Snowlax.

Overall it was fun but i tend to prefer eps with humans in too.

It was cool how Lapras saved them when the boat went under.

I happen to like some of the Christmas vacation episodes, but the second part wasn't as good IMO. Snorlax's voice just threw me off a couple of times. :x

I loved seeing the cast's Pokemon help Santa's Delibird retrieve the lost presents, and Waninoko getting the giant snowball stuck in his jaw was humorous. The various shenanigans that the Pokemon encountered were entertaining, especially the Eipam. Santa Claus making a cameo was nice, too.
