Pokemon Creator Selling NYC Penthouse

Al Kahn, creator of cartoon phenomenon Pokemon, is selling his four-story penthouse apartment in midtown Manhattan for $18.95 million.

Mr. Kahn, 69, a licensing executive, introduced a number of animated series to the U.S. and global markets, including Japanese imports “Pokemon,” and “Yu-Gi-Oh!” He also came up with the term “Pokemon,” after deciding its original name “pocket monsters” sounded too Americanized.

The place is really luxurious and impeccably decorated. I mean if that’s your style. And it is. Here are the stats:

  • Price: $18,950,000
  • Neighborhood: Flatiron District
  • Loft | 3 Beds | 3 Baths
  • Approximate Sq. Feet: 4,412
