Pokémon Kids TV marked its first anniversary last month. The channel is an official Pokémon YouTube learning channel that offers a wide range of content for children, such as Pokémon songs, nursery rhymes, and educational content. It also highlights its growing popularity among young children all over the world, surpassing two million subscribers and gaining more than 60 million total views in just a year.

To commemorate the milestone, Pokémon Kids TV and famous Chinese video creator team Cat’s Kitchen collaborated and produced a series of live-action CGI videos titled “Pokémon Sweets Paradise.” The series illustrates a warm day-to-day life of a man who lives together with Pokémon and features the process of making sweets.

Following its popularity in China, the series is scheduled to be localized in English and made available on Pokémon Kids TV YouTube channel. There are three episodes in total, each of which will be released in March, April, and May respectively. In addition to English localization, Thai, Indonesian, and Hindi subtitles will be added in hopes that more kids and parents from different regions can come into contact with Pokémon.

Cat’s Kitchen is a famous video creator team from China that focuses on food content. The team started its activity in 2013 and had garnered more than 60 million followers and 78 billion video views in China. The founder, Lao Dao, who appears in the video as himself, has gained a lot of support from many fans for his affectionate homemade food and warm atmosphere. In the future, the channel also plans to collaborate with different creators and create videos in various genres.

Apart from the localization of “Pokémon Sweets Paradise,” the channel also has a plan to localize more Pokémon songs in different languages, including Thai, Indonesian, and Hindi, with “Pi-Pi-Pi-Pi Pikachu” song as its pilot project, which is now in different languages.
