What's the font used in Pokemon Conquest's dialogue? More specifically, since I assume it's some proprietary font compiled in the game, where have I seen it before? It looked extremely familiar as soon as I saw it.

Here's an example:

My first thought was Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. I compared the letterforms, and they do seem to be mostly similar but with some slight differences. Even though the differences are subtle, the look and feel of the fonts looks visibly different, so I'm wondering if there's another game that I'm thinking of.

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance: The lowercase a and t look identical. But the tail of the FFTA e curves up whereas the tail of the Pokemon e lies flat; the FFTA i has a very subtle serif, whereas the Pokemon i does not.

Hey, rubergly. I've voted to close this as there's no real answer we can provide; most likely, it's something specific to the company and not any public font. –  Frank Jul 13 '12 at 18:36

Given that game identification is off-topic, I would think that font identification is even less so. Sorry! Check out the FAQ and feel free to ask any other questions you might have that would be a better fit. –  Matthew Read Jul 13 '12 at 18:42

@MatthewRead I'm not so sure I agree that this is at all off-topic. And if it is, it should have nothing to do with the separate issues with game identification. I've bloviated about it on meta, so I'd appreciate your thoughts. –  LessPop_MoreFizz Jul 14 '12 at 3:18

This will answer any Pokémon font related questions you have. This details the various fonts used in game with links to download TTFs for each. The one you're after appears to be labelled as 'Pokémon D/P/Pt', fifth down on the list.

Additional variations of these fonts from other games in the series from a variety of platforms can be found here.

It's just the font from the most recent main series games. –  Shinrai Jul 13 '12 at 18:39
    
it appears it is, but the way main-series Pokemon games style text with the lower-right drop-shadow makes it look very different (compare to idleblogger.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/victini.jpg) –  rubergly Jul 14 '12 at 0:52
    
@rubergly I get a 500 internal server error from that link - ah nevermind, you're missing a www. :) –  kalina Jul 14 '12 at 5:22
    
@rubergly I see what you mean, yeah they're the same font or very very close - the drop shadow definitely confuses things slightly. –  kalina Jul 14 '12 at 5:24

As I was looking for a font similiar to Pokémon's dialogue i found out that GulimChe looks a lot like it. You should have this font on your computer, otherwise you might find it online. :)

This answer is obviously incorrect. GulimChe is not even an English font - it's for Korean. –  Private Pansy Sep 24 '12 at 15:49
