What unbelievably tragic news.

Pokémon Creative Design Director Eric Medalle was killed in a freak accident on Sunday when a tree was uprooted by a windstorm and landed on his car.

The 42-year-old was driving his toddler-aged daughter around in their SUV when the accident occurred, but fortunately she escaped with only minor injuries.

Eric worked with the Nintendo company since 2003 and was involved in eight different Pokémon projects, including X, Y, Black, White, and SoulSilver — so his presence will surely be missed.

He leaves behind his wife and two daughters, and our thoughts are with the rest of his family and friends at this difficult time.

Stay safe if you happen to be in the Pacific Northwest right now!
