Satoshi Tajiri, creator of the worldwide phenomenon Pokemon, is rumoured to have passed away following the recent tsunami’s that have rocked the island nation of japan. Twitter has been flooded with uncomfirmed reports that Satoshi has passed away, after becoming a victim to the disaster.
Despite this, Maritus News is claiming Tajiri is alive and well after having merely fainted. The story says that he resides in Tokyo, and was not a victim of the flood. That said, it’s very likely the rumor is false, however it’s still no confirmation. No statement has been issued by Tajiri, Gamefreak, or his family as of yet.
Again, I urge everyone to please donate generously to the Red Cross to help provide aid for those caught in the devastation. Every Dollar, Pound, Yen, Euro, or whatever currency you use helps.
