Genuinely? Snot bubbles on the train? Shocked That's not polite, Japan! It's really not!

What? Eh? Now I'm very confused. Labels are useful right up until things stop fitting neatly into categories...

Top Five Christmas Pokémon

5. Delibird



Delibird is the Christmassiest of Pokémons, surely?  Only if you think Christmas is meant to be a time of disappointment.  Simply put, Delibird is rubbish.  Everybody knows Delibird is rubbish.  Its special move, Present, is especially rubbish.  So yes, it's Christmas themed, but as far as the spirit of Christmas goes, Delibird shouldn't be anywhere near the top three.

4. Sawsbuck: Winter Coat



It'd be easy enough to go for Stantler, but... well, did you even remember that Stantler existed before I mentioned it right now?  Sawsbuck at least has some interesting things going for it.  It's Grass/Normal, for starters, which is odd.  Then there's its beautiful seasonal coats.  It looks right at home amongst a bunch of ice types.  

3. Abomasnow



One of the standouts of an otherwise mediocre generation, Abomasnow is a hybrid of a Christmas tree and a yeti, and summons up a snowstorm when it enter the field.  It couldn't be more Christmas if it tried.  Unfortunately its ceiling isn't quite high enough to propel it to first place.  Sorry, Abomasnow.  You get the effort award.

2. Snorlax



While not perhaps as Christmassy as some in the list, Snorlax embodies how you feel after Christmas lunch.  Absolute stuffed, couldn't possibly eat a thing, just want to sleep it off...  Quality Street?  Oh go on then.  Snorlax is an excellent embodiment of the festive spirit.

1. Xurkitree



It's a dancing Christmas tree, what more do you want?  Got the star on top of it and fairy lights.  It's also a reminder of the dangers of Christmas lights, which can set your house on fire if left unobserved.  Take note!


Any ones I've missed that you feel are particularly Christmassy?

I think Snover's a better shout than Abomasnow for that list - he just seems like a jollier chap, and we all know that Christmas is meant to be a time of cheer and goodwill.

I like Stantler, and I was annoyed not to see Beartic, but the excellent Snorlax entries earns you a pass.

Beartic's a good shout, with his Father Christmas-esque beard. Cubchoo could also fit in, to symbolise how everybody seems to get ill around this time.

Abomasnow's fatter though, and it feels like a proper Christmas tree as opposed to the one I have shoved in a tiny pot in a flat.

Why does that look like King Dedede in a red onesie with a white mask on?

They're both penguins, I suppose!

Delibird's sack is actually its tail. I'm sure you all know this, but I was reminded again the other day and my MIND was BLOWN once again.
