Pocket Monsters XY by HitoshiAriga Pocket Monsters XY by HitoshiAriga
Art Director Sugimori gave me the all clear to tell everyone, so I finally get to make a few announcements about work that I have been doing recently.

I had a hand in the new 3DS game "Pocket Monsters XY". Specifically, I designed some new Pokemon! (listed below)
- Pangoro
- Inkay
- Malamar
- Honedge
- Doublade
- Aegislash
- Tyrunt
- Tyrantrum
- Amaura
- Aurorus

I've actually been doing video game work for quite a while now (over two decades), including projects for things like PCE, MD, and SFC. Apparently the Pokemon art director, Sugimori, had taken notice of some of my past work and that's why he asked me if I'd be interested in doing some design work for Pokemon XY.

So in some ways, designing Pokemon for XY was like an extension of my days of drawing monsters for "ActRaiser 2" and "Beyond Oasis". I am a Pokemon Trainer as well as an illustrator, so needless to say I was incredibly honored and pleased to have this opportunity.

I just thought the Pokemon XY players following me might find this information interesting!

アートディレクターの杉森さんから
「言って良いですよ」とおっけーを貰ったんで、
そろそろ告知というか、お仕事情報です。
 
現在発売中の3DSソフト「ポケットモンスターX・Y」にて、
開発のお手伝いをしてました。
具体的に何をやったかというと、新ポケモンデザインです!

ちなみにデザインを担当したポケモンですが、
ゴロンダ、マーイーカ、カラマネロ、
ヒトツキ、ニダンギル、ギルガルド、
チゴラス、ガチゴラス、アマルス、アマルルガの10体です。
全員、公式サイトでも見れるんで興味持った方は見たってください。

ゲームの仕事自体は割と古く(20年以上前)から
PCE、MD、SFCやらをやってまして、
ポケモンのアートディレクターである杉森さんが
私の昔の仕事を見ててくれてたようで、
そこからXYのポケモンデザインを
してみませんか?と、声をかけていただきました。

そういう意味では、今回のXYのポケモンデザインは
昔開発参加してた「アクトレイザー2」や
「ストーリーオブトア」でモンスターを描いてた仕事の
延長線に近いです。
絵描きであると同時にポケモントレーナーでもあるので、
物凄く光栄で嬉しいお仕事でした。

ポケモンXYを遊ばれる方は、
「へ~、ありがはそんな仕事もしてたのか~」
みたいな感じでちょっと覚えておいてくれると嬉しいです!

Even if he was working on that, knowledge like this is under NDA, and he would NEVER tell you anyway unless he wants to get sued and lose his job.

I use Pangoro and Aegislash in my Pokemon X team. I wouldn't have beaten the Elite Four without them, I didn't know that you were the person behind those Pokemon?!

Thank you!!

Aegislash is absolutely awesome, but my most favorite is Amaura. He is so cute, I dont think I will ever have the heart to evolve it him.
