This is why the move, "Earthquake" was banned in the anime. They even refused to air that Barboach/Wishcash ep from Hoenn way back in 2004 because of earthquake incidents.

Hopefully, this'll help clear up rumors. I've pretty much traced back the source of the rumor to some Spanish users on Twitter. It seems to be nothing more than a rumor.

I'm happy that no one from Nintendo didn't got hurt, but I feel bad for Sugimori. He's stuck in a airport!

"Nintendo of American"...surely it's "Nintendo of America"?

Glad to hear Ken Sugimori is safe; although, I don't recall hearing any rumours about Satoshi Tajiri.

Rumors of his death spring up every couple of years, for some reason. It's one of those things that just won't go away, unfortunately.

Ishihara Shigekatsu has also reported that he's fine.

The Pokémon officials were the first thing that came to mind when I heard about the earthquake. Thank god none of them are dead, but I really feel bad for Sugimori. Stuck in an airport? At least he can eat from all the shops in the airport. :p

Exactly the same here. I'm just glad no one was injured by the quake. Poor Sugimori. I hope he gets out of the airport soon.

I don't know about the airport he's at, but the airport at Narita only has like three restaurants. He probably doesn't have that many places to choose from.

Not to mention, there are bound to loads of other people stranded at the same Airport, and it all depends on how much money he has on him as well (As he was probably expecting to be home right now).

Glad to hear that everyone is OK, and hope Ken Sugimori gets out of that airport soon! Maybe he'll be inspired to create a Pokemon based on an air hostess...

I somewhat doubt it. Maybe a Pokemon based on an annoying airport official?

Anyway, glad to hear that NoJ (it's probably just 'Nintendo', as they're based in Japan anyway, but I thought I'd avoid confusion) is alright.

It's okay to say that I think Harada-san's tweet is adorable, right?

Yeah, when the writer from the Pokemon anime died last year, people said that it was Tajiri-san...
I don't know why people constantly think that every year, he's not like 80 years old.

Yes, if he can eat than that's the main thing. I also feel bad for Sugimori-san being stuck at an airport with crowds of people.

Re: Sendai earthquake, tsunami impact Pokémon officials: Sugimori stuck at airport, H

I hope the death toll stops climbing soon (preferably now). I'm a Sentai forum and I already let it be known that I hope none of the cast and crew of those shows are hurt or dead. Now, I'll pray and hope the cast and crew of Pokemon, both past and present, and their families are okay, as well as every family in Japan. If they need to postpone episode, go for it. Just as long less people are hurt or killed in this disaster.

Glad to know everyone is ok. Being trapped at an airport probably sucks for Sugimori-san, but its not the worst thing ever at least none of GF are hurt or dead. Also i hate these dumb internet rumors. Glad to know Taijiri-san is still alive and well.
