    ^He means the font used on the Pokémon's names.

    Yes, I dislike it. They could easily fit a 10-character name with a readable font before, but now they decided to resort to squished 3 pixel width mini characters.

    Oh, sorry. I meant the name of the Pokémon in a battle. They added a border to it in BW, and because of limited pixels, the font looks really weird.

    EDIT: Sorry, ninja'd. I keep getting 503s :O

    I kind of dislike it. It's sort of hard to read, but I imagine they did it to save space or something.
    It'll take getting used to, but I don't mind it so much.

    I hate all BW fonts. From the use of the DP/Sapphire font instead of the anti aliased font for the JP versions, to the smallass font for Pokemon, they failed with fonts this time.

    Well, it looked squashed enough as is. (If they used the same width as the Japanese font for Western characters, it'll be too wide) As for the normal text, I'm fine with that.

    It looks very squished together, the worst is the m, it looks almost exactly the same to a n.

    I do like that they finally switched the Pokemon mames to match the rest of the text, but the text as a whole does look really squished together now that you mention it.

    A lower-case "i", to me, looks like a smaller upper-case "L" almost.

    I have trouble identifying an m and n with the new font.

    I don't have much of a problem with the new font; it's the text's color which makes it somewhat difficult to read the text in battles, at least in my opinion.

    I do not really mind the font. It is not the first time a game I played have a bad font.
    I have dodged many things, but that is not why I am a dodger. I just like wearing striped shirts.
