Pokemon Creative Design Director Killed in Accident
Yesterday and today Pokemon fans have a heavy heart as Eric Medalle, Creative Design Director at The Pokemon Company International, has passed. It happened on Sunday while Medalle was out taking his daughter for a drive during a windstorm when a tree crashed down on Medalle's SUV. His daughter survived thee crash, but Medalle unfortunately passed.
Medalle was responsible for several games in the Pokemon series, including the most recent Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire titles as well as Pokemon X and Y. Another creative talent lost in a bizarre accident, and as Pokemon fans, gamers, and fellow human beings we pass our sincerest condolences to Medalle's family during these difficult times.
