At the moment, I am pokeballs deep in the latest Pokémon release from the Nintendo Switch, Brilliant Diamond and Shiny Pearl. And I can’t put these games down. A little about me, I am really late to the poke party, the first real game I really picked up for more than an hour or two is Pokémon Go! I just remember always ending up in battles, I hated those games. But just wine or cheese, age makes you more seasoned, and I picked Pokémon Shield, and now I might be a tad obsessed.
With the holidays in full swing, I think it would be an exciting time to count down the Top 5 Pokémon that would make the perfect Christmas gift. No real criteria here, just Pokémon that would make the season a little more festive.
5 A Vulpix or Flareon.
Any Fire type really, but these two are the cutest. Besides cuteness and being able to mess you the eff up, what a perfect way to roast some chestnuts on an open fire.
Because, what if the toy you bought did not include batteries?
3 Alolan Ninetales.
Are you dreaming of a White Christmas? Find a Pokémon with a Snow warning ability and your wish of feeling like you are in a Hallmark movie listening to a certain Mariah Carey song will make all of your wishes come true.
It looks like a damn tree. Grab some lights, some tinsel, and dance the night away.
It’s a pocket monster that also is the title of a beloved Christmas Classic. “Jingle Bells” btw.
