The Pokémon sensation has hit Westfield shopping centre after it opened a new animation studio at Kidzania .

The Pokémon Animation Studio is the first of its kind in Europe, and has been designed especially for kids.

Lasting 20 minutes, visitors will be asked to complete a short film using stop-motion animation techniques, with young animators split up into producers and directors and assigned to work in a studio booth equipped with the latest stop-motion animation software.

The kids will then create the ending of the short film using the TOMY Pokémon figures and props provided.

At the end of the session, their masterpieces will be displayed on a screen outside the establishment, in Shepherd's Bush for parents to see their work.
