    I think that looks a bit ugly but perhaps making a custom le symbol could work, especially since its shared by both.

      lol better yet use gamefreak's method of cramming the letters in there to get a shorter name that takes up less letters
      0x57, 0x58, 0x59 are all 5/3 of a letter in order to get the word "block" crammed into three characters, probably for poké block case? don't actually know

      EDIT: thaks for images bulbapedia!!

        Yes you are right, it looks better now, it is possible to make this type of characters, but how would they be inserted into the rom and how it would be able to put them on the pokemon name using tools.

          ever heard of tile molester? it's an interesting tool...
          anyways, basically dumps the rom as an image. this is really helpful because that means that we just have to look through there for our text's image and bam replace that
          and maybe remake some tables to define our letters properly

          according to hackrex's tut on it, check around 1f5df0, 201ff0, 212308, and 222620. these are the german offsets, but english can't be too far away, eh?
          better yet, check out the dppt font patch and what it changes :P
