Do you guys like these? I mean, I remember being excited about Emerald bringing back animated sprites like they had in Crystal, but idk. They don't have as much charm to them. Most of them just kind of hop around a bit or something and I don't find it interesting. Not that they're terrible, but compared to Crystal, I prefer them. They have their own charm though, but maybe I'm just biased because Emerald is my favorite game.

So do you guys have any favorites? I like Combusken's, mostly for the still haha.

They were ok but ruby/sapphire has some mediocre sprites to begin with (especially Pokemon that couldn't be obtained in the original game without cheating)

I agree. Even some of the Pokemon introduced in that game look really off compared to their artwork, like Shiftry. I used to think it was scary only until I saw how it was supposed to look, then I was alright with it...if I didn't stare at the sprite too long. :P But yeah, the non-native Hoenn Pokemon all look pretty terrifying. Mostly in the eyes too. It's always the eyes...ick.

Also, this is kind of horrific, but adorable at the same time. Or I have problems. Haha.

I liked that a lot of the Electric type Pokemon had sprites where they were 'charging up'- Pikachu, Electabuzz, Zapdos, Magneton, and probably a few others would flash yellow during their animation.

Two of my least favorite though were Pidgeot's and Spheal's animations. For whatever reason, they both decide to do somersaults, which I get is excusable for a ball-shaped Pokemon like Spheal, but not so much for Pidgeot.
