In this completely silly run of bite-sized features, we're going to write a new version of '12 Days of Christmas' with a Nintendo twist that will, hopefully, be good enough to sing.

Four Calling Chatots

There were a few candidates for an equivalent to "four calling birds", and this was suggested by Samuel-Flutter in the comments. A parrot-like 'mon, this one can imitate speech, Pokémon cries and sing tunes; as long as it's not calling us names, we'd happily have one of these outside the window on a lovely festive morning.

So far, then, our song is as follows:

On the First day of Christmas my true love sent to me,
A big chair in a Pear Tree.

On the Second day of Christmas my true love sent to me,
Two Koopa Troopas
and a big chair in a Pear Tree

On the Third day of Christmas my true love sent to me,
Three angry cuccos
Two Koopa Troopas
and a big chair in a Pear Tree

On the Fourth day of Christmas my true love sent to me,
Four calling Chatots
Three angry cuccos
Two Koopa Troopas
and a big chair in a Pear Tree
