::::::::The book [[Satoshi Tajiri: Pokémon Creator]] which I just got from the library today says he has aspergers. Since it ''is'' supposed to be his biography I suppose that's a good enough confirmation...

The claim that he has Aspergers has been removed from Wikipedia. I'm going to send a message to the author of the biography to see if she remembers the sources, because it seems like a lot of the supposedly legitimate sources are just sourcing each other. In addition, it would be seen as improper to speak about mental or emotional issues so openly in Japan (unfortunately), so I'm extremely doubtful about the claim that he confirmed it himself.

:::::::::Very interesting. '''VERY''' interesting indeed. I, myself, have Aspergers, and allegedly, so did the killer in Newtown, Connecticut. NPR described it as a mental disability, but I literally called BS on that statement. Asperger Syndrome is anything '''<span style="color:red">BUT'''</span> a disability! It doesn't disable anything in its patients at all, with the exception of the ability to read facial gestures and body language, recognize sarcasm, and show empathy towards others, among other things. If anything Aspergers only changes the way its patients see the world and the way they think, react, learn, and interact. It's not Autism, but it's a mild form of it. Because of the fact that I have AS as well, I take huge offense when it's called a "disease." But since Tajiri (probably) has it, I just realized that technically, I could be just as successful as him. Perhaps even more so.
