This album provides examples of:

  • Cover Version: The song contains covers of "The Christmas Song" and "Must Be Santa". "Christmas Medley" is also a medley of various Christmas songs.

  • Hold Your Hippogriffs: Several of the songs include Pokémon puns.
  • Oblivious to Love: During "Under the Mistletoe", Ash is oblivious to Misty's desire to kiss him.
  • A Wild Rapper Appears!: Inverted with "Pokémon Christmas Bash". The song is mostly Ash, Brock and Misty rapping, but the bridge is of Brock singing.

    • The album is heavy on Ash/Misty. "Under the Mistletoe" is a song all about how Misty wants to meet Ash under a mistletoe.
    • During "The Night Before Christmas", Ash casually recites that his mother, Mr. Mime, and Professor Oak are napping at his house. Why Oak is napping at Delia's house isn't clarified.
  • Under the Mistletoe: The song "Under the Mistletoe" is about how Misty wants to kiss Ash under the mistletoe.
  • Villain Song: Team Rocket sings "The Christmas Song" and also take part in "Pokémon Christmas Bash" and "Christmas Medley" and also recite the second half of "The Night Before Christmas". Meowth also sings "Nobody Don't Like Christmas" by himself.
