A silly interview with Takashi Iizuka from Game Informer went up today to mark Sonic’s 25th anniversary. A lot of the questions weren’t much, but the last one was. Iizuka was asked about the fate of the Chao:
Are the Chao an endangered species now? We don’t see very many of them anymore.
The Chao require very clean and pure water in order to survive, so you may not see them in a lot of places. If you do go to Rio de Janeiro in Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, you’ll probably see a lot of them in the stands.
