Premiering on Voot Kids, the lineup will have 21 movies and over 10,000+ minutes of Pokémon Anime series episodic content on the completion of it’s 25 successful years.

Strengthening its content library as a destination for favorite characters, entertainment, and fun learning platform for children, Voot Kids has announced a lineup to provide viewers with access to the globally loved anime franchise – Pokémon in India.

Pokémon continues to expand not only the video gaming category but has recently released Pokémon UNITE, a MOBA game playable across Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS platforms. Voot Kids is all set to provide an immersive Pokémon experience to its fans in India with 21 global blockbuster movies from Pokémon added to its content library. The hook for this one kind of content initiative in the kid’s segment spins around “Chuno Voot Kids. Chuno Pokemon” with Voot Kids being confident that every Pokémon fan will choose Voot Kids as its favorite digital destination to enjoy it at their own discretion.

Speaking on the initiative, Ferzad Palia, Head – SVOD (Voot Select, Voot Kids) & International Business at Viacom18, said, “At Voot Kids we aim at creating a wholesome experience for our young viewers to enjoy and fun learn from their favorite characters in a 100 % kid-safe environment.
