A new streaming rights deal will see a number of Pokemon animated series stacked in Netflix’s growing library of children’s content.

The exclusive deal, which follows a separate content deal with Hulu that is consistently ramping up its own kidvid offerings,  encompasses the classic first season of the TV series Pokemon: Indigo League, the Pokemon: Black and White season as well as two feature-length Pokemon movies.

The series will be available to subscribers in all Netflix territories starting March 1.

The deal signifies Netflix’s continued efforts to compete with Hulu and YouTube – and traditional networks – in capturing a larger piece of the children’s on-demand pie.
