Below is the translated interview with Ken Suigmori.
Ken Sugimori, primary illustrator: I really struggled the most with the Water-type [starter] this time.
Yusuke Ohmura, illustrator: There was talk of, "Wouldn't a sea otter be good for the Water starter?" But it was a really close decision in terms of what this sea otter would become once it evolves. In the end, we decided to have it evolve into something with a completely different appearance.
Sugimori: Of course, we want to make the starters into Pokémon that remain with the player throughout the game, so we hope to make them evolve into creatures that offer a surprise to the player. We always make an effort to throw in some twists and create third-stage evolutions that have an impact.
Ohmura: There was also talk this time about dividing the three starters into Japanese, Western, and Chinese styles of design. Tsutaaja was based on Western design, and Pokabu was rooted in a Chinese style, so I was told, "Let's make Mijumaru into a more Japanese-style design." Someone even asked, "Can't you make Mijumaru into a samurai?" [laughs]
Everyone: [laughs]
Sugimori: I worried about it for a while, and I eventually went to go see the sea otters at the aquarium. I happened to catch the sea lion show while I was there, and I became aware of the sea lion's power. "Well, let's try blending a sea otter and a sea lion," I thought. I came up with the idea of making the shell on Mijumaru's stomach into a sword (katana) and using it to fight, and that's how I completed Mijumaru and its evolution."

So therefore the evo can't be real, right? Since the katana is on its head, not its stomach...?

So far people have been saying that MijumaruX3 will be able to either stand on 2 feet and also walk on all fours, like Swampert did.So the evo's aren't confirmed real or fake until it is posted on the Official Black and White site or revealed through game play.

But it is most likely the released evos are real. They are from a very viable source, where rotation battles and the like were leaked from.

But, yeah, everyone is starting to like Mijumaru now. :')

At first I was all like: What the heck is that thing? I HATE IT!

Now, it is both adorable and awesome to me.

But what can you do with a shell?

That's pretty epic. I've been down with mijumaru since the beginning, but I might like smugleaf more if that leaked image is for reals. I just can't stand pokabu, though.
