Step 3.

Get the Pokemon Solid font and install it on your computer. Start it using the type tool (P) and select the previously installed Pokemon Solid font. Then type your text as Pokemon using the black color. You are free to write your own name and title or text which you wish to put the style of text. Label this layer as ‘text-shadow’.

On the bar of options (see the image below) on the Type tool (T), set the font size in the range of 237.05 Pt. The right-hand side of the option bar select the center text options to place the text to the middle of the background. It is also possible to make use of this Transformation Tool (CTRL + T) to enlarge and ensure that the text fits perfectly into the center of the background.

Then we’ll apply Blending options to text. We’ll transform it into Pokemon Text Style. Click on the text, and select “Blending Options”. Review for the options for Stroke options and select the appropriate settings.

In the settings above, you will notice that I haven’t use the color of the Fill Type. Instead, I chose an gradient. I went with the gradient flow between the dark blue 263159 up to a medium blue #2d659e up to #2331159. It is possible to see the setting for the gradient color flow in the following image.

Below you will see the outcomes:

Step 5

What we’ve created thus far will be a kind of drop shadow on our text. Then type that same text, but it’s this time, above all layers. Be sure to select the same font and text color. It is also possible to copy the text in case you wish, then click on it, select clear the style of the layer’ to erase the effects applied.

Below you will see how I typed it again.
