Katy Perry is teaming up with Pokemon for a new music program.

The 36-year-old pop star is teaming up with the iconic franchise on P25 Music, a new venture to mark Pokemon's 25th anniversary, and Katy - who gave birth to daughter Daisy in August - was even more keen on the 'playful' collaboration now she has become a mother.

'I love being a part of anything that is playful and is good storytelling and has really good messages to share with the world. Now having a child myself, I understand that it's so important to play. This is a continued extension of who I am,' said the Smile singer who has Daisy with fiance Orlando Bloom.

Katy recalled the 'amazing' experience she had visiting The Pokemon Cafe in Japan in 2019.

She told People: 'I was pregnant when I was there actually, little did I know! It was amazing.

'It brought up all these wonderful childhood memories. 

'I've been going to Japan since I was 17 every year and have always really loved everything that's been created there.'

Katy admits that she is able to identify with Pokemon's protagonist Pikachu.

She explained: 'I'm really attached to the hero. I know there are others in the game, but I just found Pikachu to be really cute. I understand the story of Pikachu.

'On the surface, you might just think I'm just cute, have a couple of cute songs. But if you dig deeper, you'll realise 'Chained to the Rhythm' is not just a fun little song!'

The American Idol judge hopes that the Pokemon project gives her fans something to look forward to this year as things are so 'unknown'.

Katy said: 'In this moment of unknown, there are dependable places and characters and institutions and people, and I hope I can be one of them. 

'That's what I hope for in my personal self, and even in my involvement with this collab.'

On the Pokeman Instagram page it said: 'You can’t have a party without a playlist—and no playlist is complete without @katyperry! Stay tuned for more exciting musical surprises this year, Trainers! #Pokemon25.'
