    Default Kanto Badges

    On the page for Badges, I was wondering where the images for the Kanto Badges came from. More specifically I was wondering where the design for the Earth Badge came from. I've looked at images from both the games and anime, and neither of those have the broccoli design that Bulbapedia has. Can someone please enlighten me?

    Given the file description says that it is an illustration I suspect it is from artwork, possibly from a game manual or something similar, rather than from the games themselves.

    All the Kanto Badges appear to have a similar style, so it was probably cut from artwork with all of the Kanto badges.
    Thanks Jo The Marten for the avatar.

    I would highly doubt that it is the only place, but they are in the book Extreme Pokémon: The Guide for the Ultimate Fan.

    This is interesting. I wonder why? Did you check HGSS?

    @ Dratini Powa! I have checked HGSS. The trainer card has different badges.

    @Werndae You are probably correct and the book that SnorlaxMonster said is probably where the illustrations are from.

    Thanks for the information guys.

    HGSS has little rotatey gray/gold badges. They aren't from HGSS.

    The only ones not official are the Hoenn badges, which were drawn to match the style of the others until which point we get actual art. Which we haven't (and hopefully WON'T) get.

    Pretty sure Red and Blue's manual had such images. Let me check for the manual online and see if I'm right.


    edit: Nope, I am disappointed at how boring modern manuals are compared to the faux research document style with taped on notes with tons of classic style Sugimori art used back then.

    Um, why would you hope for something like that?

    TTE is just being facetious.
    RSE art probably wont roll around unless a remake of those games happens. its anybodys guess if itll happen, but for now we arent speculating and therefor the "fakes" will have to do.
