    I think someone may have mentioned it before, but what's the font used for SM/SWSH Pokédex descriptions? Frutiger looks close with some tweaks, but it's not quite light enough and the correct one seems to have serifs.

    DeviantArt has been having download issues ever since Eclipse, it seems. Right-clicking the Download button and choosing "Save Link As..." works for me.

    It's Optima. Took us ages to figure out and I don't remember who finally landed on it in the end. xD

    Does anyone have the art for the back of a card?

    ^Just downloaded the font for the Pokédex Info, I know Frutiger (in Itealics) is the font for the "Evolves from" section for the SWSH, but I don't know what the font is for the Height and Weight section of the card.

    It's not perfect (numerals aren't wide enough), but Frutiger LT 55 Roman with optical kerning and -1 tracking is what I settled on for my SM/SWSH fakes. It would be nice to know the exact font, though.

    Nyan's SM master psd file uses Frutiger LT Std 67 Bold Condensed, 14.5 pt and 3.45 leading.

    I haven't seen Nyan's PSD, but Frutiger LT Std 67 Bold Condensed doesn't even look close to me.
