Lots of Old Item Icons

Between beta and June 7 2012, clothing items on the inventory screen/on trade lists looked much different and matched AJ's original art style. There was a lot less shading and most items didn't look like they were 3D
Den items had slightly different icons too
Here is a collection of old item icons. I took pictures of these a long time ago and carefully cropped them so they look "clean"
I wanted to make a page with all the item icons I had pictures of but I never finished it due to lack of time and I didn't want them someone to steal them and put them on AJ wiki ¬_¬ (I can't think of any other excuses so those will have to do)

Since I basically quit I might as well post the ones I finished. Expect them to show up on AJ wiki and other sites claiming that they are their images lol

When I inevitably come back to AJ and pretend like I never lost interest maybe I'll finish editing all the other ones I have (This is only like 20% of all the old item icon pictures I have)

Also check the comments if you're interested in a bit of AJ history that's semi related to this post

73 comments:

  1. Boring History Lesson Time!

    Before early July 2011, not every clothing item was available in 8 colours. Some only had 4, some only had 5, others had 8. There weren't a lot of items available in 8 colours. At least from my memory, most of the ones that had 8 colours were from beta (top hats, viking helmets, gloves)

    When July 2011 happened there was an update that made it so all clothing items that can change colours had 8 available colours. Obviously this added a lot of new coloured items to the game. From the items in this post I'll go over the ones that were "original" and the ones that were added as part of the update

    Mech Angel Helmets - Yellow/red, purple with blue, pink, and icy blue

    Headdress - Yellow, white/orange, pink/purple, green/black

    Rhino Helmet - Black, pink, gray, icy blue

    Hat And Curly Wig - Green, blue/yellow, pink, black

    Curly Wig - Red, white, brown, pink

    Arctic Hood - I didn't upload the other ones but the originals were red, blue with green eye piece, pink, and dark purple (Beta hood was also an original, but removed from shop)

    Fox Hat - Orange, dark blue, white, peach, pink

    Pigtails - Red, pink, yellow, black

    If I didn't mention an item it's because all of its colours were originals

    Since some items hadn't come back to stores after the update, there were many unreleased colours of items which were mostly seen in Best Dressed. I made a post about it ages ago: CLICK HERE

    All of the items in that post were unreleased at the time (all of which have since been released other than Legendary Wings)

    Hackers used to hack in some of these unreleased items. I made a post explaining the story a while back which can be found HERE

    Demon Masks were originally only available in one colour but when they came back after the update there were available in 8

    When Rare Mondays was still in its early days, rares didn't have the golden Rare sign on them

    And for anyone wondering, the 3D royal cape pictures are from when AJ first started to make items look 3D

    I probably forgot something but oh well this took forever to type

    3. Some kid at school was so hyped for the app that he is refusing to do anything Pokémon related. So when I asked him to play the TCG with me, he refused and started acting incredibly rude to me. It resulted in an argument that lasting the entire day and he had the nerve to compare me to Hitler. I have no idea what Hitler had to do with anything but I think you could understand why I got really mad.

      It's moments like those when I was I could force my Mega Blaziken to set him on fire, watch him burn until he turns into a pile of ashes, and use the excuse that my Blaziken jumped out of his Poké Ball to get away with it.

      Now that I think about it, I'm pretty hyped up for Pokémon Go too.

    4. Blazekin was banished to Ubers forever ago tho.

      Also, you spelled Blaziken wrong.

  14. OH MY GOLDUCK

    I WAS PUTTING A LEVEL 11 MINUN INTO A WONDER TRADE TO SEE IF I COULD GET ANY RARE POKÉMON AND SOMEBODY GAVE ME A FLABÉBÉ, WHICH IS AN X AND Y EXCLUSIVE.

    I PUT IT INTO MY PARTY BECAUSE IT LOOKED PROMISING AND I FOUND OUT IT WAS LVL 100 AND SHINY! THAT WAS THE FIRST NON-LEGENDARY SHINY I HAVE EVER GOTTEN AND I ALSO GOT A LVL 38 BLAZIKEN WITH POKÉRUS SO NOW MY WHOLE PARTY IS INFECTED.

    ALSO A CLOSE FRIEND OF MINE OFFERED TO GIVE ME A RESHIRAM (IN THE TCG) FOR FREE BECAUSE I INVITED HER OVER TO BAKE CUPCAKES.

    5. Help me

      I was victimized by the GTS hack and lost my shiny Flabebe and a Shiny Jirachi

      I don't know what to do anymore. I want a real Jirachi but the trolls took away two shinies

      Oh god I'm crying again

      Delete
    6. I'm gonna assume the Shiny Jirachi was hacked. AR/other things ruin the game.

      Delete
    7. See, the game's censorship was hacked so that Pokemon could be named anything. The trolls hack in a bunch of Shiny Event Pokemon, give them racist and offensive names, and trade them for other shiny and rare Pokemon. The hacked Pokemon they use are generally of very low level.

      I'm trying to breed some Wynauts to warn people not to use the GTS. If anyone wants to try to refund both Baybé and (censored due to racist material) I'd be overjoyed. If anybody wants to refund it or would like to recieve a warning from my Wynaut Club ask me and I'll give you my friend code

    8. You could always go to a trade board like (lol) GameFAQS. People have powersaves and can "shinify" your pokemon for you like someone shinified that flower fairy

      Delete
    9. I don't go on boards. I'm not sure if I'm allowed at all lol

      I don't know what people on the internet are going to do after that experience so I'm nervous whenever talk to people I barely know in the game. I want to shinify my Mewtwo but I don't know if I trust them enough.

  17. Um, did you hear the news? A good deal of National Geographic brands, including the magazines, websites and other "media assets", are being handed over to Rupert Murdoch and 21st Century Fox. I'm not quite sure yet how this will affect Animal Jam, if at all, but keep a sharp lookout. I have a bad feeling about this...

      Delete
    6. @Tigerlypaws Well, the educational resources and brand are about to change big time. I'm still not entirely sure what control NG has had over AJ, but if NG gets discredited (Rupert Murdoch denies climate change) then there will be a huge impact on the number of parents allowing their kids to play. And AJ is directly associated with NGKids in particular (ever read the magazines or almanacs? promotions and ads everywhere), which is also being handed over. WildWorks/SBI hasn't said anything about it yet, but I might ask eventually (already trying to set up a real correspondence to report malware that was attached to the .swfs my friends and I downloaded). Either way their is plenty of reason for concern, since basically NG as we know it is going to disappear.
