Iwata was involved in Pokemon Go’s planning stages

From a Nikkei report, Iwata was seemingly involved in the planning stages of Pokemon Go. He would communicate with his friend and Pokemon Company president, Tsunekazu Ishihara, while on his hospital bed. Pokemon Go achieved one of Nintendo’s goals to get their IPs into the hands of a larger audience which has seemingly helped Pokemon as a brand overall based on Pokemon ORAS sales increase in this month’s NPD.
