is just around the corner and Jessie is coming up with plans to capture
Santa Claus. Jessie is convinced that Santa is actually a Jynx and she
tells James and Meowth the tale of when she was a little girl, a Jynx stole
one of her dolls. Meanwhile, Ash and company are at the beach, when Ash
spots a Jynx carrying a boot. Ash tries to capture it, but Jynx knocks
away his Pokeball with the book. Jynx shows Ash the boot and they see a
picture of Santa in the boot! Jynx uses telepathy to tell Ash that she
was cleaning Santa's boot on an ice floe when part of it broke away and
she floated out to sea. Ash decides to help Jynx get back to the North
Pole. Using a raft and their water Pokemon, they make their way north,
but the Pokemon quickly get tired out. Ash decides to take over when he
hears a voice. It's a Lapras, who also uses telepathy to tell Ash that
she was sent by Santa to find Jynx and she will take them the rest of the
way. But just as they reach the North Pole, Team Rocket appears in their
submarine and captures them in a net. Jessie grabs the Jynx and Team Rocket
breaks into the workshop to steal all the presents. There they find many
more Jynx and the real Santa! Jessie and James tie up Santa, and force
the Jynx to load all the presents into their submarine. Santa demands to
know why she is doing this, and Jessie tells them what happened to her
years ago. Santa and Jynx explain to her that Jynx took the doll to get
it fixed, but since Jessie stopped believing in Santa after Jynx took her
doll, he couldn't return it. Jessie is touched, but decides to take the
presents anyway. They start to get away, but Santa orders his Jynx to use
Psychic attacks to lift the submarine out of the water, shaking out the
presents, then sending Team Rocket flying off again. Santa is grateful
to Ash for brining Jynx back, and gives them all gifts. As Lapras brings
the group back home, Santa sets off to deliver presents... even to Jessie,
James and Meowth!
"Sounds screwy ta me. Maybe it was a sugar plum dancin' in yer head." ~Meowth, on Jessie's story about a Jynx being Santa Clause.
