May Pokémon Designer Eric Medalle RIP

Pokémon Creative Design Director Eric Medalle passed away this Sunday, at the age of 42, in Seattle. He was on a drive with one of his daughters near a park known as Lost Lake Trail when intense wind speeds caused a tree to crash down on his SUV. Thankfully, a bystander was able to rescue Medalle’s daughter from the accident, and she was sent to a nearby hospital with minor injuries. Our deepest condolences go out to Medalle’s family. His work was loved by millions of people across the world, and defined the imaginations of several generations. The work that has been credited to Medalle since he started working for the company in 2003 as an artist and designer includes:

  • Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire: English & European Graphic Design
    – Pokemon X and Y: English & European Graphic Design

Once again our hearts go out to his family, and may he rest in peace.
