  52. https://web.archive.org/web/20071103203031/http://blog.pokemon-movie.jp/archives/2006/07/post_85.html (wording makes it unclear if Sugimori himself designed it or if it's just a finished design he had available)

  60. Judging from what we know about Pokemon's early development and how Sugimori was the only designer at first, it's likely that most of the Pokemon programmed early into the game were all designed by Sugimori.
  61. Combusken, Latios, & Kyogre
  62. Since he seemingly designed Torchic, Blaziken, Latias, and Groundon it wouldn't be surprising if he did these as well.
