The visual braille's symbols and translation to the alphabet

Braille is a method of communication that uses raised dots as characters. Each letter of the English alphabet, along with the period and the comma, is represented by a two-by-three series of raised dots. In the Pokémon games, this type of encryption has been featured in Generations III and VI, and is often associated with the Legendary Pokémon Regirock, Regice, Registeel, and to a lesser extent, Regigigas.

Inscriptions in Hoenn

The Braille inscription on the outermost entrance to the Sealed Chamber

In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, a strictly visual form of Braille is used to encode the instructions for opening gates inside the three caves that contain the legendary golems.

In order to enter those caves in the first place, the player must find a chamber that depicts the entire alphabet encoded in Braille. This chamber leads to another section narrating the tale of an ancient civilization, which is implied to be the one that closed all these doors, and ultimately giving instructions on how to open the three caves.

Inscriptions in the Sevii Islands

Explanation of the encryptions from a Braille chart that was included with FireRed and LeafGreen

Braille inscriptions are also present in FireRed and LeafGreen, where the player needs to find the Ruby and the Sapphire. The first inscriptions are found where the Ruby lies, featuring the entire alphabet, then focusing on the meaning of life; the next inscriptions found give instructions leading to the Sapphire, then narrate the purpose of these two items combined by two people. This possibly references Bill and Celio, who use the aftermentioned items to create a device that allows FireRed and LeafGreen to be compatible for trading with Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald.
