Clouds in Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl have been evolving. :(

Early on:


Nowadays:


Summer School arc (set of episodes):


Current (set of episodes?) and High Touch! intro clouds:

    ...you and your clouds.

    I bet the person who draws the clouds was fired when the anime staff saw your last post and that's why there's been an improvement.

    Animation Directors. Like one person can draw fancy clouds the other can't.

    Considering it changes every once in a while I kinda doubt it. Wouldn't explain why DP overall had the first two cloud styles shown.

    But you see the AD changes every episode. It could be it could not.

    It's not hard to draw clouds anyway, even if you're in a rush. lmao I don't understand why they change so drastically. Maybe if the entire background art got revamped and restyled but I don't think that's the case...

    I think they are evolving the Anime in a way. Budgets must be going good and animations must be getting better.

    Somehow I'm not willing to think that budgets were ever a problem. ;x

    Hahahaha it's the budget XDDDD They slowly built up their "cloud animation budget" for the summer school arc and ran out of money afterwards, but can now afford to spend more on the clouds about 50 episodes after...I don't really think so XD It's not animation directors, they were "normal" for the whole of the summer school arc and I don't think they ever have the same director 4 episodes in a row? Anyway, clouds were "normal" all the way up until Battle Frontier, where they started to change them into random white blobs.

    Well, this is good news for cloud watchers XD
