Oh, but maybe I wanna try to get into Pokémon cards again? I might know of a place where people would be playing. Or where I could start something. There’s a Magic the Gathering shop right down the street.
And it would probably be fun to play at anime conventions. Maybe.
The creator of Pokemon, Takeshi Shudo, passed away at 4:03 AM JST on October 29th at the age of 61.
“MSN Japan reports that Takeshi Shudō, former head writer of the Pokémon anime, collapsed at Nara railway station’s smoking area around 6:00am on Thursday, October 28th. Upon being discovered by a passerby, he was rushed to the hospital and is undergoing surgery. It was soon determined at the hospital’s emergency care center that Shudō had suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage in his head. ” -bulbanews
This guy created my childhood. So sad that he is no longer with us, but know that we will always remember him. Rest in peace Takeshi Shudo. We thank you for making our childhood so amazing.
This guy literally started my craze with pokemon that will go on forever. We won’t forget you and thank you for making my childhood so great. RIP
It’s really awful that this man died, but I think it’s a bit inaccurate and misleading to say that he is THE creator of Pokémon. Not to devalue his contribution to the franchise, of course, but he didn’t CREATE Pokémon.
