For real the the localized Pokemon logo sucks.

it sucks bad. it desperately needs to be updated.
meanwhile the japanese one has been getting cool updates every generation. the black and white logo was cool with the dot in the "PO" being the center of a pokeball.

And X and Y have a similar Pokeball effect with the DNA thing on the N.

and then the US one has that stupid yellow logo just thrown up right on it.

Note that both of the things in the first pictures have to do with the Katakana.

At least they added a 3D effect w/ bubble letters. If you look at Y's logo, you'll see red on the width of the logo. It's still pretty lackluster when compared to the Japanese logos, though.

While I agree wholeheartedly, I don't think it will be changed at this point in time. It's become too iconic and isn't necessarily old enough to be considered vintage.

Thing is, if they change up the standard "Pokemon" logo, Gamefreak might lose sales because there are SOME people out there who would be all "DATS NOT POKMEMANZ I DUNT NO WUT TAHT SIMBUL MEENS!!!!"

Whereas if they leave it at the standard logo they've used for over a decade, people are more likely to recognize it, therefore more likely to buy it. And that's what companies want. Your money.

The localized titles have always been the same overused logo. They indeed lack originality.
