    Default Pikachu's Winter Vacation: "Christmas Night" & "Ice Games" (022)

    Ice Games!

    When Pikachu and friends go out for a nice winter stroll, they come across a Kangaskhan and her child. They get the kid Kangaskhan to play with them, but in doing so they end up in danger. Can they get out of it?

    This was a fun little short. I like how we got to see a baby Kangaskhan out of it's mother's pouch.

    This is my favorite short (i only seen the first 2). We got to see a baby Kangaskhan out of its mothers pouch and got to see Onix get some screen time.

    I thought these were great episodes, but why did 4kids change the names when they'd already dubbed them?

    Because they're crazy.

    Maybe they even redubbed the episodes too. O_o

    I really like these Pikachu's Winter Vacation shorts. They give most (if not all) Pokemon more screen time.

    I love those Pikachu shorts because they don't focus on trainers(for once!), and it shows what pokemon do OTHER than battle.

    Very entertaining episode, I assume it takes place before the Orange Islands.

    Yes, that was in the days before Stantler was created.

    Anyway, I liked this Christmas special, even though I liked the delibird/snowlax one better. The best part of the whole thing was the pokemon listening to the Christmas music box in awe, it was well-animated (for ten years ago!) and beautiful. I also liked the pokemon trying to figure out how to put the party hats on. LOL Too bad Meowth's cameo in part two was so small, especially considering it's a chance to hear Maddie again, but I liked the little kangaskhan. It reminded me a lot of Ash's Larvitar.

    Overall, 7/10.

    CHRISTMAS NIGHT
    This episode was good. Good to see the old pokemon. This episode kinda got me all psyched for Christmas. It was cool to see the pokemon work together to set up the Christmas tree.

    KANGA GAMES
    This episode was good. It was pretty funny with Psyduck making face prints. I was kinda weird to see Mama Kanga let Baby Kanga play with the other pokemon seeing as how protective the mother could be with the baby Kanga. Also, I thought Bulbasaur, Onix, and Geodude are weak against Ice attacks. Seeing as how they enjoyed the snow made me think otherwise.

    Wow i just watched these again recently. I love them so much, in particular the Christmas Night. Its well dubbed, it appears they haven't added in any extra pokemon cries and also kept the original music (apart from the opening/ending song of course) So much has changed. Its nice having no narration, having moments of quiet. I love when they are putting on the party hats, when they find the music box, and when ash and co. return and the pokemon have all fixed everything. The art is really nice and the characters were well done. I like the little jigglypuff "eyecatch" in-between the episodes where you hear jigglypuff singing and the camera zooms up to the window which appears that it is snowing outside, then you see that it is snowing singing jigglypuff, cute little things like this just aren't in it anymore. Don't get me wrong I love and watch the latest episodes, movies, shorts and specials but its good looking back, and its got Vulpix in it!

    Love the music box scene. I remember this episode (from a long time ago) because of it.
    I play to win. I get my kicks from winning. Serebii is also my guilty pleasure.

    Good Winter Vacation, although we didn't see Ash and the friends.

    I loved to see all the pokemon working together, it was amazing.

    as a Group, these 2 Christmas specials were both great. The comical parts were cool, and it makes you really excited for Christmas and Winter. I liked Christmas Night much better, especially the ending. Ice Games was definitely more cute and comical.

    as a Group - 50/100
