pokémon red/blue/yellow (english) (game boy) font


recreation of the pixel font from the english version of nintendo/game freak/creaturespokémon red/blue/yellow (1998) on the game boy.

note that the pokédollar character has been mapped to the regular $ sign. the arrows are mapped to black right-pointing triangle (U+25B6), white right-pointing triangle (U+25B7), and black down-pointing triangle (U+25BC).

the tile set also includes custom characters that combine letters with apostrophes (e.g. for dialog that includes something like I'm ..., there is an actual glyph with 'm). these have not been included in this recreation.

only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
