eric medalleEric Medalle, artist and creative designer at The Pokémon Company International who brought his touch to the artwork of Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire and many others, passed away on Sunday aged 42. A windstorm caused a fir tree to fall on his family’s SUV, taking his life and leaving one of his daughters, who was in the back seat at the time, with minor injuries.

Fortunately, no physical harm befell his other daughter or his wife, but our thoughts are with all of his family and loved ones at this traumatic time. The Creative Design Director at The Pokémon Company, having worked there since 2003, Medalle will be remembered for bringing about the bright, warm and thrilling magic which is the distinction of the Pokémon franchise.
