Ruby-Version

We hope you’re sitting down, because Pokemon is BACK!

Pokémon Ruby" and “Pokemon Sapphire” – which were originally released in 2003 for Game Boy Advance – are being remade for the 3DS and 2DS as “Pokémon Omega Ruby” and “Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.” 

Find out more here.

The moment I first saw Tropius in Ruby version, it became one of my top favorite Pokemon. Since then I’ve been trying to find a shiny on Route 119- to no avail. Years and years later I found a shiny Tropius in X, but it didn’t feel the same. Nothing can compare to seeing a new Pokemon for the first time. Here’s a mashup of the two moments, though. :D 

There are seven kinds of Pokemon in this image - can you find them all? Enjoy!

Here’s the reference for my type pendants! The Radiant Chamber floor!

I’d been looking for a reference for this for a while, but no one seemed to have caught any good view of the different symbols, so I did it myself! :D

The types seem to follow a common type order, starting with Normal type and then continuing counterclockwise and finishing at Fairy type. For the most part the type symbols match the card game symbols, with Fire, Water, Electric, Grass, Fighting and Psychic type symbols matching perfectly. Dark type is almost identical to the card game symbol but with a slight protrusion at the bottom.

The Normal, Dragon, Steel and Fairy type symbol differ from the card game symbols. The floor was likely designed before Dragon and Fairy type cards were released, so it’s no surprise that they differ from the TCG symbols, but I’m not sure why Normal and Steel types were given unique symbols.

Normal type seems to be more abstract than the other types (if I’m missing something, let me know), as I’m not sure how it relates to the type.

Ice, rather typically, is a snow flake. A good symbol, not much to add.

Poison is represented by three bubbles.

Flying seems to be either two wings or two feathers. I prefer to think it’s the latter since it seems more fitting for a symbol.

Ground seems to be a mound of earth or a mountain

Bug is a bug. Nice and simple.

Rock type is a circle surrounded by three bars, which I like because it seems like a like a more basic version of the steel TCG symbol (metal being refined rock). Probably unintentional, by still cool. ;)

Ghost is a wispy ghost shape. For my pendant I added eyes from the fog badge, since symbol seems a little bare without any.

Dragon is hard to work out, as far as I can tell it seems to be two horns (again, let me know if I’ve missed something).

Steel is a simple square. Flat edges and sharp corners seem to match metal well.

Fairy is a pink circle in another pinky circle. I like this since with a little tweaking it’s not too different from the card game symbol.

We there you go, that all the type symbols from Diantha’s floor in the Radiant Chamber. I hope this helps anyone who’s been wondering what the symbols look like or had been squinting at their 3DS to work them out (I know I was when I played, haha).

Check out my type pendants if you have time,

‘The Answer’ from Steven Universe is up for an Emmy so I thought I would try to post a zoomed in version of Ruby and Sapphire’s second fusion from the episode. I don’t know if any of these expressions are visible on TV but I wanted to draw them! ❤️💙
