A key figure who worked extensively on the Pokemon franchise passed away yesterday in a tragically freak accident.

If you’re a fan of Pokemon, we have some rather sad news. 42-year-old Creative Director Eric Medalle, who worked on logos for most of the Trading Card Game, passed away yesterday afternoon in a freak accident.

The incident took place at Seward Park in Seattle where, according to KING 5 news, Medalle was taking his daughter for a drive when a Douglas Fir tree fell onto their SUV due to high winds. His daughter was pulled from the wreck and survived with only minor injuries, while Medalle was sadly killed at the scene.

Our thoughts are with Medalle’s family. The Pokemon franchise has lost one of its best.
