Case in point, in the original Japanese Pokemon anime, the main character we know as Ash is named Satoshi and his rival Gary is named Shigeru. Satoshi Tajiri is a high-functioning autistic. Yes, the creator of Pokemon is on the spectrum. It actually fits when you look at it.
People with autism tend to have fixations and specializations and you can see them in his past actions. Also, that obsession with gaming in his teens?
That level of intense dedication goes well beyond being an average fan. That brings us to the poetic genius behind Pokemon.
Satoshi has gone on record saying that he wanted the games satoshi collectors give children the same joy as he had during his bug collecting. Nowadays, I could probably do. He graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a degree in film. He is currently living in San Jose where he is writing regularly for fishandcherries.
