You may not know the name Mari Shimazaki but you definitely know her work. Shimazaki is a character designer/illustrator and she’s working on some major franchises. Shimazaki was behind many of the characters you’ll find in Bayonetta and Okami, and now she’s added the Pokémon franchise to her resume.

Mari took to X to share the artwork above alongside the reveal that she created some character designs for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. In particular, Shimazaki worked on Fidough/Dachsbun, along with the professors, Raifort and Miriam.

Along with that reveal, Mari mentioned that she just completed her playtime with Pokémon Scarlet and Violet as well. Mari stated that she took quite a lot of detours along the way, which is why it took her so long to see the game through to the end. While her journey was a long one, Mari said she loved filling in the map and found the entire experience to be quite relaxing.
