Standard Sudoku rules apply.

In addition, the grid is populated with a number of "Exploding Pentominoes." These each represent a sequential set of five different digits, one per box in the cells corresponding to the shape of the pentomino.

Few questions,
Can the Pentominos be changed at all (rotation/reflection)?
Does the pentomino occupy the same cell in each box? Like if the given is in top left of its box of 9 cells, does that means all 5 digits must appear in top left of their respective boxes?

@Greg No rotation/reflection is allowed in this puzzle (but you are anticipating future variations I have been considering). I wanted to keep this one simple since it is a new type. Yes, you are exactly correct that the five cells of the set defined by each pentomino occupy the same cell of each box.
