A thin – though slowly growing – layer of snow blankets a remote region home to a diverse population of Pokemon. The holiday season has finally arrived, and all of the young Pokemon eagerly await the joyous day when they will wake up to the sight of gifts laid freshly under the Aspear berry tree. However, their anticipation is tinged with nervousness, an anxiety born out of a strange occurrence that started with a mysterious cave months ago…
Santa had always been so kind, so generous with everyone until he’d wandered into an unexplored cave earlier in the year. He was gone for an entire month, leading everyone to worry… and when he finally returned, he was not the same Santa they had known.
When little Cleffa ran up to him to welcome him back home, all he said back was “Ho-ho-hold up! Get your grubby little mitts away from me!”
The time Oshawott approached Santa to tell him his Christmas list, the poor boy was met with “All you’ll get is a holly jolly lump of coal that looks like that stupid nose of yours!”
Santa… had become very naughty. So naughty that he began to deem EVERYONE else as naughty. And naughty meant a fate worse than doing chores, worse than anything… it meant no presents from Santa.
With their presents at stake, the children of the area join forces to combat this changed, selfish Santa. Can they return him to his former benevolent state? Or will this be the year without a Delibird?
