Comments from Takumi Wada
Happy 25th anniversary of the Pokémon Card, everyone! I feel a lot of pressure to draw illustrations for the long-lasting Pokémon (cards), but I am very honoured to have the opportunity to expand the life and world view of Pokémon. If my illustrations help others become more familiar with Pokémon, I'll be glad.
