    In the Japanese version of the Pokemon games, the main character is named Satoshi after him.
    The character Satoshi has a rival called Shigeru, named after Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of the Mario and Zelda games.

    Like Harry Potter, Pokemon has been accused of spreading occult messages and ideas to children.
    He based the idea of collecting Pokemon around his memories of collecting insects.
    As a boy, he was made fun of by his peers for his hobby.
    He came up with the idea of trading Pokemon after seeing a Game Boy link cable and imagining living things going back and forth across it.
    Unlike some other game designers, he prefers to keep a low public profile.
    At eighteen, before creating the company Game Freak, he started publishing his own game tips magazine called Game Freak.
    At sixteen, he won first prize in a Sega-sponsored contest for a video game idea.
    He wasn't responsible for the huge focus and popularity of the Pikachu character.
    He looks up to Shigeru Miyamoto and sees him as a mentor.
    He dislikes violence in video games.
    He described Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling as seeming 'really nice.'
