This is my final thread for my public pokemon tilesets.

All tiles are made from scratch, and is for public use, just credit slimshady.

For any of the following, feel free to give me your honest criticism, and, if there's some tileset you've been looking for, but haven't found, and want me to take a crack at it, give me a quick PM and I'll do my best.

-My Work-

Kanto Region (Incomplete):

This is part of my project to make a more realistic and updated version of the Kanto Region. Although it's not necessarily a copy of the anime, the tiles will be more unique, bigger, and better. It's part of my upcoming re-make of Pokemon Yellow.

Pallet Town Custom Tiles (Incomplete):

This tileset is pretty cool, I guess. Check it out guyssss.

Viridian City Custom Tiles (Complete 4/11/2011):

http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2011/101/6/d/viridian_city_tiles_by_pokemoneclipse-d3dmpz2.png
From left to right: Viridian Gym open, Viridian Gym closed, Coffee Shop (for the Old Man event), Police Station (an event from the anime), Old Man's house, Pokemon Mart, Pokemon Center, and Apartment.
The gym on the right is taped up and closed; the way it should look when you first visit Viridian City. The left one is open, ready for you to challenge the leader.
Finished, plus door animations.


Pokemon Train Station (Suspended as of 4/6/2011):

The first, realistic Pokemon train station free for public use.

*Regarding any tileset: Once the whole tileset is completed to my liking, I will finally add a screenshot of how to properly use the tilesets in your game.
*Everything on this first post is free. Take it, but make sure to credit slimshady. However, all of my maps are off limits because the tilesets are compiled from other artists. So don't rip from them and credit me. Find your own tiles!
*If my tilesets appeal to you, PM me and I can also do some SMALL tiling jobs for your game.
*For my maps, not all of the tiles are made by me!!

Well, because of "popular" demand, here's my first try at a building:
The Viridian City Ground Gym!

More to come as I continue to revamp and remap the entire kanto region!

and...
Route 1 remade!

Everything's decent, but the rock gym looks quite dull. I think you should add some extra tiles or designs showing that it's a rock gym. Possibly have rock pillars, crumbling rocks, something on the roof, etc.. :P

A few things

(1) I really like your train station tiles.
(2) Viridian Gym is a Ground-type gym && the building seems a little out of style.
(3) Please don't mix and match tiles from different generations -- i.e. the DPPt trees with HGSS water and what looks like B/W Grass. Sticking to a single generation allows for more graphical consistency and a more authentic look imo.

My only remarks about the tiles would be that some of the colours and shading are a little dull and make them feel a little more like GEN3 tiles. Some brighter colours and more noticable colour changes in the shading would help them look a bit more modern (if it's a GEN4 GEN5 type of thing you're aiming for).

Keep it up :)

Sorry about that, I meant to say ground gym. Have any suggestions on how to make it look groundy? This is actually exactly how it looks in the anime, but I would love to add some decorations to liven it up.

Forgive me, but I thought it was Pewter City that had the Rock gym.
Yup, you're right, and I fixed that.

1) Thanks!
2) What do you mean by out of style? I'm assuming that it means it's not as modern and kind of plain?
3) The mixing and matching isn't a big deal at all. I really don't care too much about the maps right now, I'm just making them to show how to use the tiles I make. So far, I'm still tiling Pallet Town, and Route 1 was easy, so I just threw that up here.
And I definatly see how you could say the Gym is FR/LG style, but I'm not a fan of supersaturated tiles. I try to keep the colors dull, but I can try to brighten them up a little. I'm not too sure what you mean by shading, and, yea, D/P/Pt is what I'm aiming for.

Oh yes, sorry, I always meant to comment here xD
Though you always just had the train station

The gym, you can maybe push the middle (door) outward towards us? see, a cool way to make anime tiles, is to not just tile it, but to put a spin to it.

The train station looks pretty cool, though it looks really flat, (I know its inside..)
The signs are ok. and thats all really.
Please make more ;)

Also I think the map looks just fine, as route 1 though.. unique. the styles togather look great. though d/p/pt trees dont match either that or I was never a fan :x

Umm... Tile constraints stop me from pushing out the door, but I did edit the gym again and I think it's less bland.
I'll finish the train station later because, ever since I started the Kanto revamp, I've really gotten into it. If I decided to do a train station, then I'll come back to them, but otherwise, I'll put them on hold for now.


Nice work! I really like the route 1 revamping!

Thanks for the feedback! :)

-UPDATE-

I tried to make the Viridian Gym look better, and this is what I've got so far:

The one on the left is the open one, and the gym on the right is the one you should see when you first enter Viridian City, and it's closed.


and...


I finally got decent progress on Pallet town, and here's the main attraction:
Professor Oak's re-modeled Lab. I was in a good mood, so I've also made the door animations and a fence too! :)

Here's Pallet Town:
http://www.deviantart.com/download/204026325/pallet_town_by_pokemoneclipse-d3dgzpx.png

Say "hello" to SL1MSHADY's version of Pallet Town. It's not bigger just to make it more like the anime but because I wanted to make it practical.
Like a town should, it has a few houses, a nice, spacey lab that's being remodeled, and a small area for pokemon battles in the town square.

Any suggestions on how to fill up the beach area? I feel like it's too empty.

Some of the dullness of the other tiles you use really contrasts badly with some of the more colorful palettes used in your tiles.

Just pointing that out. Tiles still look great.

I think slightly softer, shaded outlines would really make your new work fit in. I think that's the only thing that's making it look odd. If you want an example, look at the house tile bottom-right. It uses a brown shade for its outline in most places on the roof where the colour is lighter.

Still, excellent work. I really like. :3

There is a tree hero on Pallet town. Behind the Lab there is a sign and above the sign a tree is missing his top left tile.

But i really like that pallet town : O

Yea, I noticed that, and I tried to keep my tiles away from kyledoves. I'm trying to style my art away from kyledove's and bring a happier, more brighter atmosphere to my art, and, once I get better, I'm going to go back and re-make all the houses to match, so that really isn't a problem.

Yup, I completely forgot about the lighter outlines, I meant to get to that.

Right, the final tile is in, but you can't see it because it's on the fourth layer.

Nice to see I'm getting such intense critique, though!

-EDIT-
Now, intensely critique this, the turbine:

If it's meant to be a windmill, the blades need to be *much* wider. If it's meant to be a wind turbine for electricity, the base needs to be *much* thinner. Right now it looks like some weird hybrid with the proportions wrong.

The line art on your tiles is quite good, though to be honest, I think you're struggling a little with your colours more than anything. the palettes are nice, but they're way to washed out, and don't really work well with the maps your putting them in. However I would recommend going with the same sort of colours used in HGSS styled tiles, whilst keeping them outlined. Or at least, go with DPP (kyledove used to use this style but has since moved on), since that's the sort of direction you're going in with your maps. But really, work on colour choices by looking at other tiles and seeing what they use, but you draw your tiles quite well, it's simply the colour choices and shading which could be improved. Your style is just ever so slightly off Pokémon style.

Yup, I made it skinner. Everyone else does the fat one, so I decided to shake things up.

I want to develop my own building style. In a few days, I'll have finished the other houses, and the only things on the maps that aren't made by me will be the nature. Once I get the houses done, I think Pallet Town will flow much better.

-UPDATE-
Since everyone is saying my style doesn't fit with Kyledove's, I've officially decided to re-tile all of the houses in Kanto, and I've started with Viridian City. You've already see the Gyms, but here's what else I've cooked up:

http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/099/1/3/viridian_city_tiles_by_pokemoneclipse-d3dmpz2.png
From left to right: Viridian Gym open, Viridian Gym closed, Coffee Shop (for the Old Man event; can you guess what my inspiration was?), Police Station (an event from the anime), Old Man's house.
I need to do a custom Mart and Pokemon Center, and I'll be done!

P.S. I need help with my roofs!! As you can see, the police station and the coffee shop have very similar, bland roofs. Do you guys have any idea how to make them more interesting and have more variety?
And remind me to do the door animations too please, or I'll forget, and your games will have immovable doors!

and...

I've made the windmill skinnier, which makes it an electric turbine, I think:

Thank you, and, no, I'll do Pewter City after Route 2, which is next on my list. I plan on completely re-doing the buildings (and their interiors) of the Kanto Region.

-UPDATE-
Good news and bad news, guys.

The good comes first:

Here's a sneak peak at what I have planned for my Viridian City map:
http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2011/101/8/3/viridian_city_sneak_peak_by_pokemoneclipse-d3ds8ke.png
*I am only the owner of the buildings, which are free. All other tiles cannot be used, as they are part of a private tileset, and I do not want to specify which are public and which aren't (they were complied from multiple artists by a friend of mine).

Sadly, it's about the same size as Pallet Town, which is embarrassing for me as a mapper.

The bad news:

Alas, all good things must come to an end, and today is my last day of Spring Break, which means I can't churn out tiles/maps as quickly as I have been. I will most likely be updating only on the weekends, and without as much content as I have been posting recently. But, don't fear, because this will go on, and I will complete this project!

I like these. A lot. These are public, right? I'm thinking of replacing my gigantic PC I'm currently using with yours and the Mart, and I'm sure I can work the Coffee Shop in somewhere ;)

Viridian City's map (or, from what we can see) is looking great too, and the roads add a hint of realism. You are planning on making a game with these, right? If so, it may be one of the few I actually play. And possibly actually finish, which I've never done before.

Yes, I actually plan on making this into a game. After I finish mapping all the towns/routes/event areas, I hope to employ a skilled RPGXP programmer that can tie everything together, and I will publish all of the resources, including the tileset I used, for others to edit and play around with.

And thanks, your encouragement means a lot! :)

Is it just me, or is this REALLY UGLY? I feel like I let you guys down.
I just churned this out for the sake of an update, but I'll definitely be taking maybe another week just to add much more variety and flavor.
I especially hate the surrounding nature, it's too boxy.
Also, as I re-do this, I'll be re-doing Pallet Town again, this time with my houses only.

Well what do ya know, in my absence a new tile artist has popped up, and a very good one I may add. So, it appears that your doing this in a more firered/leafgreen style. One thing that pops out is that the police station is very saturated relative to the other tiles, so maybe fix that by decreasing the saturation a bit, nothing major, probably only about 5 units. Also, the marts color seems to be rather bland and could maybe stand a little more saturation.

Well, that's all for now. All I have to say is that's its nice to have another tile artist around, and I can't wait for more of your art.

It's Pallet Town, complete with unnecessary details like basketball hoops and trash bins. You can tell just how useful this sh!t is going to be for your games. In case you were wondering (and too stupid to figure it out on your own, which you probably are because you're spending insane amounts of time on a website about POKEMON! I mean, really? Grow up dude...) the thing on the right is my sidewalk. And it's unnecessarily complicated to understand, just the way you guys like it!
Hope you guys have a terrible time figuring out how this crap will fit into your games as I have made the color pallet absolutely different from any other one I've come across, just so things would be extra tough on you guys!

LOVE YOU ALL!!! <4 <4 <4 <

That's how it was in the anime, but I don't here Ash complaining! Jeez man, lay off.

I'm glad you were gone. Why did you decide to come back? : (
Yea, I know I'm good. I really don't mind the saturation on the Police station, and I'm the tiler, so HA! I win.

Thanks man, it took long years of being alone and devoid of human contact as well as a dash of virginity to get me to this level. I'm proud that I have a talent in an art that I will use literally NEVER in the real world. That is, if I decide to grow up and get over Pokemon and my fear of sunlight.
Wow, that got a little too personal for my taste.
