Title: Re: 0: クリスマスであそぼ!/Christmas de asobo!
For some reason, I really enjoyed this Christmas OVA.
There's nothing too fancy about it, as it's just your run-of-the-mill christmas special episode. It was really cute though, and some parts were pretty funny... like Koduck trying to open a bottle of cidre (alcohol, in Pokémon?! :p), and hitting Pikachu in the process.

This episode is a nice way to relax, and remember how Christmas wasn't this overly advertised commercial thing before, when we were kids :p

It's funny, because I don't think this episode was ever broadcast or even released in any form where I live... strange, because we did have some Christmas specials, just not this one (or I completely missed it, which is quite likely, though).

Oh, and Merry 4-day-late (or 361-day-early) Christmas, PM Staff! ;)

These OVAs are rarely broadcast anywhere, since they were largely intended as Christmas gift video releases. They weren't released in a lot of countries either (I know Sweden got at least one of them), and their releases outside Japan were very limited and barely advertised, making these shorts rather obscure.

I do remember a couple of them being broadcast though (the one with Santa Claus and the Rocket Gang for example), just not this particular one.
I was quite puzzled back then, because I simply didn't understand where those episodes were supposed to take place in the series timeline, as I didn't know they were OVAs at the time.
