I think Haunter has had pretty good sprites throughout all the games. Even its Red/Green is great and possibly my favorite out of all of them.

They were a bit lazy with Honchkrow's Gen V sprites. All they did was add a wing in Platinum and HG/SS:


That's it. :/

Platinum and HGSS aren't gen V, but I do agree that they could have done better. All they did was take its DP animation and pause it and said "THAT'S IT. THE PLATINUM SPRITE."

What is Weezing made of? By the sprite, it looks like Rock.

And why are the sizes of its head swapped occasionally?

Due to heart gold's pokedex when one head deflates the other deflates so yeah
and did you read what weezing is? it is the poison gas pokemon, it is essentially a balloon filled with poisonous gas

Its SO CUTE! :D

Also I noticed in HG/SS it seems that Feraligatr and Blastoise changed colors kind of...Well its not how I remembered it. Feraligatr is a little brighter than I thought, and Blastoise's blue color seems just off o.O;; I noticed it yesterday. Can we all agree Charizard had a really awkward pose in R/B? It just looks weird XD

As a fan on Vulpix I have noticed many changes in its sprites.

Fronts:

Spoiler:


Red/Blue:It's...okay. A lot of pokemon look odd in R/B
Yellow: Looks like the Vulpix we know today, and the others are similar so...

G:Meh.
S:Meh.
C:OMG TAIL WAG

R/S/FR/LG:Meh, again.

E:Uh...rawr?
DPPt:OH DEAR GOD WHY. Why does it look like it's shaking it's butt at us!?

HG/SS:It roars at you.



Backs:

Spoiler:

RBY:Odd. Just odd.


GSC:Hey look it has tails.
RSE:Hey look, another tail.

DPPt/HG/SS: Finally, all of it is in view. (It only took them 4 Generations of Pokemon.)

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you :

One of my personal fav. Johto Pokemon, AMPHAROS !

G: Cute Fluffy Plushie ! =D

S: Awwww... You want me to hug you ?

C: This is even cuter than before (Gold animation)

RSFRLG : You lost your cuteness (and your balance too !)

E: This destroyed you, darling ! WTF shining lights ?
DPPt : Cute pose ! :x But still no fluffy round and big eyes ! :-X

HGSS : Weir looking pose... never seen an Ampharos like this one.

Conclusion : Ampharos lost its cuteness over the years. DPPt promised something which HGSS ruined (wtf 2 :weird looking feet). I'm hoping for a better future !

I totally 100% agree with you about Amphy. Used to be the cutest little thing!

Now it is not hunched over and cuddly, but stretched out and like.... blugh.

One thing always threw me off...

How come



wasn't the correct evolution path? EVERYTHING is similar on them. XD

And then



V on Cater's head grew, the tail is now on the ends of the wings, and his arms grew.

Just always Flabbergasted me.

I actually kind of like the way it turned out. Then again I'm not good with cuteness o.o

I'm going to do more comparisons~ They are so fun. xD

Sandslash!
Spoiler:

(green) Man, look at those ears!
(RB) We are facing down why..? Cute, though.
(Y) This makes me want to puke. It's like some kind of ugly bear!
(G) Something behind you?..
(S) It burns! Too bright! The pose is more dynamic, though.
(C) For a crystal animation, I never liked this one much.
(RS) Checking for something?
(FRLG) Borrrrinng!
(E) Does it have a twitch or something??
(DP) Uhhh, no.
(HGSS) ..I don't know, this didn't do much for me.
I've always had a soft spot for the RBG sprites. IDK, they are so weird they're good!


Rhyhorn!
Spoiler:

(G) What.. happened to it's face?
(RB) AAAH SAME FACE IS SAME!
(Y) No creepy face, but what is up with this pose? And it looks like someone peed on it!
(Gold) Jumping.. trying to, anyways!
(S) Colors are too dark! It's not supposed to be green!
(C) Is it listening to something catchy?
(RS FRLG) Here's where they start making it blue-gray. It's okay overall.. Squished-looking though.
(E) Looks like someone's phone is on vibrate.
(DP)... WHAT IS THISSSSS
(PT) ..cute, big improvement from DP..
(HGSS) ..what.. what did they do to you??!?! NOOOOO


Cubone
Spoiler:

(G) ..no comment, really. Big head.
(RB) Very.. round looking. It looks like it's commanding an army.
(Y) Cute by so verryyyy awkward. Liking it's skull, though.
(gold) Much better. Loving this one.
(S) ...I feel cheated. They darkened the colors.
too tired to finish the resttttt

I randomly decided to analyse Mr. Mime's sprite, and how it has changed.

The Green sprite... wait, is it hiding?
The Red/Blue sprite. Mr. Mime looks quite fat here. It's eyes look really... wierd too. :O
The Yellow sprite. It looks really... discoloured and bad. Plus, is it trying to give me a high-five, or "touch" me. ;_;

The Gold Spri... face me when I'm talking to you! >_< Yeah, it looks pretty average and MS Paint-like. :\
The Silver Sprite looks very... stupid and all i can say is derp.

The Crystal sprite... or the Gold sprite animated. xD It's making a wall. Finally, it's doing something! :D

The Ruby/Sapphire sprite. Also, no more animations. ;_; Yeah, it's pose is pretty generic, it's shoes look dodgy and so does its right hand. :\
The FireRed/LeafGreen sprites. To me, it looks like the Ruby sprite flipped with a few differences. :\ Pretty poor, imo. At least they fixed the colours...
Mr. mime can do Teeter Dance??? :\ Pretty poor animation. It's... dancing... At least it's not randomly flashing/growling like most of the other sprites. :\

Diamond/Pearl's Mr. mime sprite. For Mr. mime, the wierd mime Pokemon, it looks quite cute with its happy smile. I actually really like this sprite! :D
HG/SS sprite. It looks worse than Diamond/Pearls imo. It's not smiling anymore. ;_; Yeah, not as good as D/P. :\

Hm... ESPEON TAIMZ

Spoiler:

Espeon. The sun Pokémon.

G:

Hm, colour's off, and he's in his generic pose... Also, his 'sideburns' are awkward.

S:

AHH FUDGE WHATDIDTHEYDOTOYOUTOOFATANDAWKWARD! *dies* It's not SO bad as Emerald, though.

C:

Pretty much Gold's review, and he's rubbing the fork against the knife! (I mean he's rubbing the split ends of his tail like someone just sitting down to a big dinner :D)

R/S/FR/LG:

Colour's back, again he's out of his generic pose... I'd hate to admit it, RSE being my least favourite games, but this is his best pose...

E:

ICK!!! He looks awkward and small, poor guy... The worst so far. And he's growling or howling?

'Espeon used Growl / Howl!'

D/P:

Naah, his leg isn'r properly shaded, and Nintendo could (And HAS done) do better...

Pt:

This is practically just the flipped DP body. His tail's upper half's exactly the same.

HGSS:

Colour's off again, but this is one of the best so far.

HOWEVER! If second frames were included, THIS'd take the cake for all the sprites:

HGSS Frame 2:

@Koratah Lol, the RB Cubone sprite has always made me think of a cow. I have to look to see the Cubone there X3

Man, what happened to Ninetales? It used to seem so epic and elegant, but in recent games it's kind of generic and 'meh' looking. It must be the poses. HGSS is getting somewhere except the face is kind of boxy. Couple fewer pixels on the chin would have been a bit better.

Spoiler:
RB/Y/G




G/S/C





RS/E/FRLG





DP/Pt/HGSS




Also, anyone else think it's kind of strange that all the 'animations' after Crystal seem like they've had way too much coffee? That or Hoenn and Sinnoh must suffer a lot of earthquakes. It seems they rely less on actual animating and more on shaking/rotating/transforming and use only like 2 actual 'frames'. Kinda cheating if you ask me. :/

HGSS Rhyhorn doesn't even look like Rhyhorn. :( And that has to be the most color problems I've seen through the years. That poor thing is a different color every generation, isn't it?

I agree on the Emerald and DP animations. Platinum and HGSS did better than that, though. Growing in size and flickering around doesn't count as an animation for me. Also, with those Ninetales sprites, as the years went on, it just looks like they made the tails longer, but didn't have any room for them and crammed them in. So yeah, it's not looking as elegant as it used to.

Interesting, I wanna try some:
Spoiler:

Charizard:

Red & Green (Japanese): Wow, I didn't know that Charizard can detach it's left arm!

Blue (Japanese), Red & Blue (English): Meh. Fat wings. Hey, that's a good nickname.

Yellow: Looks fat.

Gold: I can see you've finally lost some weight.

Silver: I like this better than the Gold one. He looks... fierce.

Crystal: Are his arms frozen or something?

Ruby & Sapphire, Emerald: "IMMA FIRIN MA LAZAAAAAAA"

FireRed & LeafGreen: Looks good, I like how they removed his "FIRIN MA LAZAAAA" face.

Diamond & Pearl, Platinum: Probably the best sprite of Charizard, IMO.

HeartGold & SoulSilver: Ew. This sprite looks horrible.


Glameow:
Spoiler:

Diamond & Pearl: It looks like... a mirror of it's artwork. Except it's too dark.

Platinum: Pose looks awkward.

HeartGold & SoulSilver: Okay, if you're going to bother changing the colors, at least make a new sprite for it...

FR/LG, A step back i think, not much personallity


DPPT, still not a sprite befiting an awesome poke. :/ dumb pose

I noticed Generation 3 reused Generation 2 back sprites.
Example:


They were only recolored to look better, but still the same sprites. XD
