I assume you mean Satoshi Tajiri, the guy who founded and created Pokemon. He was born in August 28, 1965, which means he is 47 right now, and almost 48. He first conceived the idea of Pokemon in 1990 and it was released 6 years later :D
Did I mention Pokemon is inspired by Satoshi's bug collecting hobby as a kid? ._.
If you mean Arceus the guy who apparently created the Pokemon Universe, probably a few billion :3 lol

Does that mean we have a good 43 years left of Pokémon, assuming at the age of 90 his ideas become rarely good?
What does collecting bugs have to do with his age? ._.
nothing ._. its just a wierd fact i chucked in
Don't add random trivia to your answers. Mine may be random, but yours is truly 'random trivia'. x)
but i still have all the neccesary information for the anser
There's nothing wrong with adding funny information in answers, it of course, gives the asker a much clearer understanding of the answer if stuff has been added and elaborated. And that fact, for example, is something I've learnt new today xD

Satoshi Tajiri was born on August 28, 1965. He is currently 47 years old as of 19 August, 2013 (his birthday is in 9 days. Happy Birthday Sat!)

When Pokemon was first released in stores in Japan on February 27, 1996 so he was only 30 turning 31 when Pokemon started.

His birthday is very all-over-the-place in a lot of places according to the other answers, but it's definitely August 28. :3

Hope I helped. :)

Satoshi Tajiri was the creator of Pokemon, born on August 28, 1965. This make him 47 years old. He is about 9 days away from turning 48. Happy early B-day! xD

The first Pokemon games, Pokemon Red and Green, were released to the public in Feb 27, 1996, so that would make him 30 when the first games came out. It has been about 17 and a half years since then.

I have two sources confirming this that are solely focused on Pokemon info, so I believe I have the right answer. You can also read more about him on these websites too.

Mind you, the polite thing to do is correct someone on their answer. Not to be BA-savvy. I felt the urge to confront that. Not to be rude. :)
just because you can't stand JarJar being so ahead of you in points :P
It is though. ;~;
Lawl. That's because school doesn't start until Spetember :>
I don't like being on during the school week. But still, then, I would have gave up because I couldn't be bothered. You still bug me since you are still 1,000-1,500 points ahead of me. ._.
