Ken Sugimori (Japanese: 杉森建, born January 27, 1966 in Tokyo, Japan) is a graphic artist from Japan who is the art director of the Pokémon games. Sugimori designed the first 251 Pokémon virtually by himself, and since Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, he has been part of a character design team. His other work for the series includes the design for the human characters such as gym leaders, as well as the first and second-generation Pokémon trading cards. Sugimori's art pieces of each Pokémon are commonly used for generic images of each character on forums and websites.
