Ask a Creative Designer Anything

#1UltimacantiPosted 1/9/2013 11:26:18 AM
Hello. I am part of the creative design team that works on the localization of Pokemon under Nintendo of America in collaboration with Game Freak.

You may not believe me, but I do so much love the rumor mill and enjoy giving people small tidbits just enough not to be breaching my job contract. To solidify my claim I will give you a few facts.

1. We had the 5 new Pokemon designs on paper at the beginning of December and finalized the English names before Christmas break. I can offer proof if needed.

2. We were given small summaries about the design aspects of each of the Pokemon to help us develop the names.

3. We actually have 10 other designs, of which 5 more are planned to be released in March.

I will give you guys some time to guess what the "Z" legendary is since it is one of the 10 others we were given. If someone gets close or I get bored, I will tell you.

Hint: Yveltal is based on Yatagarasu. Xerneas is based on Shishigami. (Japanese mythos)

Feel free to ask me about the other designs, etc etc.

Will the new Pokemon be closer to the cool/intimidating or the cute/non-threatening side of the slider?

Can we eat Pokemon in this game?

I hope you can eat Pokemon in this game.

I miss me some delicious Slowpoke Tail.

Flank of Miltank, medium rare.

Ratatouille ala Pichu, which is divine with a splash of lemon and sprinkle of thyme...

Cream of Squirtle Soup. Extra creamy.

Is it Z for Zoroark?

I find it tough to believe that if you were who you say you are, you would tell us that there is a Z legendary. I mean, yeah, we are kind of expecting it, but that's still a big thing to give away.

Of the designs I have now, I'd say 7 are cutesy and 3 are intimidating. Actually, one of the cute ones is kind of blurring the edge (think cute but deadly).

To be fair, I myself do not know for sure that this is the "Z" legendary, but based on the obvious trend and the fact that it is a legendary with an obvious Z-like shape, I strongly believe this to be the case.
