yo, these look sick!!A couple years ago, I toyed around with making flags for every country and region that was ever mentioned in Land of the Roses. Interesting, Lanark (where the story is set) was the only one that didn't get a flag design for some reason.
They're not strictly flags by size and shape; I was making these graphics for an ill-fated atlas that sought to put some details behind all of those throwaway country names. It was pretty fun coming up with these designs though, I should probably do something with them. Especially that blue one, which was meant to be Unova and feature an attempt at recreating New York's state flag.
my best guesses --Regarding those specific ones above... I'm trying to figure out any of the symbolism on any of them and I'm not coming up with much. The best I can think of with the colored stars on Kanto's flag is the legendary birds. Same with the feathers on Johto, I guess, but the rest? Doesn't look like anything with any particular meaning.
Mount Moon? ¯\(ツ)/¯Dunno why it's a moon.
Makes sense. I keep forgetting that Lugia is tied to the sea considering its psychic/flying abilities are what it's really known for.skies and sea; just like in Johto, the non-birb legendaries get no love here.
I plead your excuse for Sinnoh: I didn't play through Hoenn, so that's why I don't know :Vit's a big ole' splotch of red and a big ole' splotch of blue cut in half by a big green line. Smells like Rayquaza stopping Kyogre and Groudon from eating each other
Gotta fix thatI also didn't play Sinnoh so I'm not sure.
Perhaps the three waiters with different colored hair in that one restaurant are such a national icon they changed the flag just for them.Unova -- three musketeers? I think?
The window idea also makes sense... Since Kalos is meant to represent France, perhaps it's something you'd see in the religious buildings, like the stained glass stuff in cathedrals.Kalos -- lmao this looks like the window in the back of the stage on smash brothers that's set on Kalos, so I'm guessing this is the window in the Kalos E4
This plus Pavell's comment about Polynesian flags makes the most sense to me.Alola -- four stars for the four Tapus (or islands; idk)
The other day, a gif of Honchkrow's fainting animation in Battle Revolution got onto Reddit's popular page, and one of the comments basically said that Game Freak were really phoning in their animations compared to Genius Sonority. In fact, a lot of Pokémon stuff feels phoned in nowadays. I don't like Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, but now I'm grateful that it was one of the last spinoffs to have an in-depth story, something I took for granted for most of my life, with Detective Pikachu being the last remnant of the DS age of spinoffs.And the animation quality of SwSh doesn't look impressive compared to Battle Revolution.
