Comment of the game producer

We thank you very much for awarding us Award for excellence, Best Sales Award, and Global Award Japanese Product.

Out of our wish that "We want people of all over the world find Pokemon at the same time," we have released this work in 7 languages and sold simultaneously in the world.

We've crossed the existing factors with the new factors such as the player search system (PSS) which enables players to communicate with people around the world easier, "Pokeparure" to deepen ties with Pokemon by playing and caring, and newly evolved "Megashinka," we set a goal where anyone can play at ease.

We thank you deeply that this software which was created by the whole staffs has been played by many people and evaluated highly and awarded such a great prize.

We will strive to make a play exceeding what people would imagine by responding to your expectations.
Thank you again.
