Furthermore, via the Pokémon With You Foundation, the company will also “continue to carry out activities to help children affected by the disaster regain their smiles”.

According to The Guardian, the death toll from the 7.6 magnitude earthquake in western Japan “has now reached 100 as rescue workers fought aftershocks to carefully pull people from the rubble”. At the time of writing, 211 people remain missing.
