I liked the episode ^^ made me feel in a holiday mood, poor Jessie and her doll
The was the first and last stupidist christmas episode they had ever!
lol I love how Team Rocket even want to steal Santa. It's a shame it was actually James though and they were just practising. It was sad to see young Jessie's toy being stolen, but it was funny to see how she was even evil in her young ages. I liked how Jynx could make people see things via some Psychic power involving her hair.
How could Ash swim in such cold waters? I also found it weird how Misty went to get Dexter to find out who Lapras was when she has one painted on her Gym. And why can it talk when Ash's Lapras he catches in the future can't?
I loved Team Rocket's entrance in this episode because of how cold it was. I also loved Jessie's evilness throughout this episode. Although I also felt a little bit sad for her because she thought her presents were stolen. The best part is when Jynx just completely ruin Team Rocket's escape and get all the presents back.
I feel like a dirty joke about Santa and all those Jynx needs to be made, but... I shall not. Why so Charmander though?
I have a Dutch Pokemon fanbook, with a comic adaption of this episode.
Jessie getting her doll "stolen" was funny, good to see that she eventually got it back. Lapras with telepathy was cool and Jynx being in love with Brock was even more epic.
Funny filler episode, 8/10. Enjoyable, but not really awesome.

I actually liked the episode, shame it was only aired twice.
Though I have the DVD somewhere so yeah.
I give this a 6.5/10
I have nothing other to say this episode was in its concept, alright, but executed confusingly and left a lot of questions marks.
Enjoyed seeing this episode, mainly because of the Christmas feeling. Santa Clause was cute & Lapras having telepathy was interesting. I'm glad everyone got presents in the end!
I didn't see this episode until I was near adulthood. When I finally saw it, I was amazed.

I really enjoyed this episode its perfect for the holiday season
I swear I've seen this a few times on Toonami... Do you think this edited version will be aired overseas?
Good for you Yuyama. Too bad you've singlehandedly torpedoed any lingering respect I and anyone else had for you.Shokotan: "And then, in Extremespeed Genesect: The Awakening of Mewtwo, we meet another Mewtwo!"
Yuyama: "Yes, I thought it'd be better if it was a different Mewtwo."
Ah, the writers knew my pain was still there about them letting go Starmie, so they had to backtrack. Haha. It was a good episode, it was funny to see the gang evade Jynx's Lovey Kiss.
I still think that this edit is completely unnecessary but I guess it's ok if it means the episode will no longer be banned.
And maybe they will also improve the animation for the episode to look more like BW?

I still remember this episode from when I was a kid lol. I loved to see Jessies story about her toy that was stolen and it was funny that the Jynx took it to Santas workshop and I like that Lapras could talk to humans. Im surprized that Jynx was changed to purple in the japanese cartoon and I hope that she stays the same colour in the english cartoon.
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.
got quite a few posts to put back here because of the downtime. Well, no time like the present
This was a truly unique episode of the show.
I never thought a show like this would ever make a holiday/Christmas-themed episode.
My top favorites
Claimed by me!
Jessie's hatred of Santa simply because his Jynx took her doll made me cackle. Jessie was so obsessive back in OS. Seeing Ash and friends encounter a Jynx in a tropical setting was odd though, but I liked that they put their Water-types to good use. Lapras's debut could've been way better though in my view; I wasn't a fan of its telepathic voice.
I was a fan of how Christmasy this episode was although seeing Santa's sled being pulled by fire types like Rapidash was odd ha ha. Lapras' ability to speak was interesting and so was the journey to Santa's workshop.
I heard that this episode got art edits recently to change Jynx's face. I liked Jessie's vendetta against Santa though, and the talking Lapras was epic.
Santa's workshop being close to Kanto was strange + Jessie's grudge against Jynx for taking her doll was fun to watch. She always has a temper.
I'm not sure why Rougela taking Musashi's doll made Musashi so vindictive, but then again, Musashi's known to blow a fuse over anything. The telepathic Laplace was interesting, in that I was curious about how it had the ability to use telepathy in the first place. Santa Claus being held hostage was silly.
