Shigesato Itoi remembers Satoru Iwata

Satoru Iwata, a legend at Nintendo that passed too soon, has a place in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon.

Game Freak has included a tribute to the company’s late president in the games. To access it, players must travel to the Game Freak office in HeaHea. The player needs to be holding a Pokemon transferred from Silver, which is available to download on the 3DS eShop. After talking to the NPC, this happens:

While Iwata is not directly name dropped, it’s very obviously about him. Nintendo takes every opportunity they can to recognize how revolutionary Iwata was for the company, and I think the fans sincerely appreciate it.
