Pokemon GB Cartridge Icons by Alforata Pokemon GB Cartridge Icons by Alforata
OK! :D I wasnt let my latest GB Icon go to waste, so I decided to remake this old set of Icons I made back then in '09.

I cant believe how bad-looking was the shading on those old icons! I had to redo-them all using my new base icon :P

These new ones were created trying to recreate the shading and textures from the GB cartridges, I took some GB cartridges and tried to replicate them in every way possible, from shading to shapes, to glossiness or even these weird shiny things in the Gold and Silver ones :P

The Labels were took mostly from the box and edited to make them fit, I had some problems finding correct labels (Charizard shouldn't be cut right in the nose :P but oh well.) and I had to remade the Gold and Silver Labels almost from ground up. I didn't took that long though.

Since I grew up playing the first and second generation, Im pretty nostalgic about these cartridges, I was always amazed of how "different" were these cartridges compared to the common gb cartridges and I loved to see these small package details in nice games.

So yeah, for the pleasure of the people, and to make things easier for everybody, I added 2 files for each cartridge: A PNG file, and a multiple-size .ico file, with all these sizes. Windows 7-ready and all! :D

For anyone that wants to utilize these in a project or frontend or something else, feel free to do it, but I'd like to know where you used and be credited for it :) You know, these took time to make, so favs are always appreciated!

Hi, Do you know the dimensions of these to be printed and do you have the PSD/illustrator or just the sticker files available?
Great work!

Hey, have you done a Crystal version? These are amazing, what did you use to do this?
Alforata Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2012  Professional Interface Designer
I had a crystal version in my old set of icons. I may do a new one later I guess.

I used Photoshop CS3 or CS4, can't exactly remember which version it was.

Hey. Um sorry to bug you if you already answered or something, but would you also make a Crystal cartridge? An original Pokemon Pinball? While HeartGold and SoulSilver sounds odd since the chips are black, I'd agree to the FireRed and LeafGreen ones. Also, are you planning to make any DS or 3DS icons as well? It's adorable and amazing and I love it so much! All your icons are fantastic! <3
Alforata Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2012  Professional Interface Designer
Oh don't worry. I already stated that I'd love to do more, this was just a quick and fast improvement of my past icons with my current skills. However, I don't know about when, but I'm sure I'm gonna update at least the GBA ones too (You can find my old ones on my gallery).

Also, thanks for your support! appreciated :)!

This brings back memories, thankfully I still have my Red Version cartridge (but no gameboy color to play it on T_T). I remember in order to trade Pokemon we needed a link cable now it's all over wiifii. Where have the old days gone?
Alforata Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2011  Professional Interface Designer
Oh :( You can always try to get an old Gameboy Advance SP...Its a shame not to use that cartridge anymore, well, considering that Nintendo will most likely release them for the 3DS VC :P

Yeah, Its way easier for people to trade/fight now :( Its like its not fair, back then it was all like an adventure though to go to a Pokemon event and get some rare stuff like a Mew or a Celebi at most, but since like there are 30 legendaries right now, its kinda meh.
