Oh boy! So, yesterday I was bored, and so I decided to rip the type symbols which appears in Pokémon Sword/Shield, and then I turned them into site emoticons. Check it out!

Pretty nifty, huh? If you want to find out how to use the emoticons in the comments yourself, or if you just want to take a look at all the different type emoticons I made, head on over to the PA! Emoticon Guide page.

Now as for those of you who want to know about the colors used in the types… well, read on!


 

OK so while I was working on extracting the type symbols, I also managed to record the color data for each type. Turns out there are three colors involved: a “medium” color for the type symbol, a “dark” color for the type’s name, and a “light” color for attacks of that type.

You can see an example of what color goes where in the blank images below; the top is an example of the Pokémon’s type info, while the bottom is an example of the Pokémon’s attack. The white circle represents where the type symbol would go, while both images are colored in the three shades.

And so the below chart is the HTML code for all three colors for each of the 18 types. If other types show up—like the “???” type, which was programmed into the game as a fail-safe, going as far as programming a ???-type plate for Arceus—I’ll be sure to add it to the list. … Heck, I might actually make an entry for both ???-type and Bird-type just for the hell of it.
