Notice the difference? Nosepass changed forms between generations 3 and 4. Does any one else get bugged by this? Also does anyone know why this was done?

I have no idea why this was done however the new Nosepass in my opinion looks much more sturdy and much less beatable than the other one. Considering Nosepass's strong suit is defense (I believe because Probopass are very annoying to kill) the second one looking sturdier makes much more sense.

It looks better in gen IV and beyond. The RSE sprites didn't do a lot of Pokemon any justice, honestly. But this could be discussed in the sprite discussion thread, located in Pokemon Gaming Central.
