Online music firm EMusic.com today said it is offering the soundtrack to the popular "Pokemon" cartoon TV series on its site. Users can listen to samples of the music and then buy and download it for either 99 cents per song or $8.99 for the full album, EMusic said.
"Pokemon, the First Movie," which opens today, is expected to be a hit among families, as Nintendo's Pokemon franchise is hugely popular with grammar school-age children.
The movie soundtrack can be sampled on a page within Microsoft's Windows Media offerings, though full songs are not available for sale. Also on the site is a movie trailer and the television commercial for the film.
Redwood City, California-based EMusic.com offers more than 30,000 music tracks for purchase and download by artists including Bush, Frank Black and the Offspring.
