I'm Giving Santa a Pikachu for Christmas is a song from the Pokémon Christmas Bash CD, released in 2001. It is sung by Veronica Taylor as Ash Ketchum and Stan Hart as Professor Oak.


Every Christmas ol' Santa brings presents for me.
He leaves plenty of packages under the tree,
But this year I have a surprise for Saint Nick,
And it's something that's going to give him a kick!

Ash: What is it, Professor?

Oak: I'm giving Santa a Pikachu this Christmas.
Ash: Wow! Just like the one you gave to me?
Oak: That's right!
I'll hide it in my stocking,
And he'll find it rather shocking,
Cause giving gifts to Santa is quite a novelty!
I'm giving Santa a Pikachu this Christmas.

I bet he'll scratch his beard and say:
"Now Christmas eves will be a breeze
As long as I have one of these
On foggy flights
Through winter nights
To light my way!"

Oak: Its ThunderShock will twirl a million candy canes,
Ash: And power up a slew of new
Both: electric trains!

I'm giving Santa a Pikachu this Christmas
Cause Santa's got a lot of work to do.
As the clock strikes every hour,

He'll be using Pika-power!
To bring Christmas toys
To girls and boys

And grown ups too.

With Pikachu his sleigh will fly so fast,
About a thousand times as fast as Christmas past

I'm giving Santa a Pikachu this Christmas,

It'll be the best friend Santa ever had.
He'll have fun with Pikachu
And Pikachu's gonna have fun too.

Playing up in Santa's workshop,
Say... that's not bad!

Ash: It's chilly at the North Pole.
Oak: So I'm told.
But with so much warmth in both their hearts
They'll never feel the cold.

I'm giving Santa a Pikachu this Christmas -
It's just the perfect thing to do!

And as his sleigh pulls out of sight
We'll hear him calling through the night,

With a Ho-Ho-Ho
and a "Merry Christmas!"
