Yes HG/SS seems to make all the pokemon anorexic and the worst has to be houndoom and then its everything they did to Jolteon. Its more like jolteon with disformities

Houndoom's proportions were pretty off from the original design before its HG/SS sprite, especially that gigantic head present in DP and Platinum.

Id have to say my favorite sprites are the ones from R/S/E. I have only played Diamond briefly, and no other games from the DS series besides White. I hate White. The battle sprites are horrible. The moves just..suck. I mean, the graphics ingame are good in all..But the in battle ones are suckish. Should have spent more time on them before releasing :/

I don't know if this sprite is already discussed (I hate viewing hundreds of pages just to see)..

Well, I'll compare the sprite of..
Jynx


Red (JA)/Green: This sprite is extremely bad. Especially the lips. It's just gross.


Red/Blue: Okay, this is just as bad as the previous one. At least they fixed the lips.


I could say I like it but there are two things I don't like about this sprite: one, pose and two, LIPS!


Gold: I guess it's okay. Pose is good, lips are fine..GOOD.


Silver: I like everything about it, except for the POSE. Back at the first gen, LIPS. Now, POSE.


Crystal: Good thing they used the Gold sprite. I like the animation. SHAKE YOUR BOOTIE SHAKE YOUR BOOTIE COME ON AND DANCE! XD Awesome! By the way, Jynx, you really need to brush your hair.


Ruby/Sapphire: Bad color palette is bad. Pose is bad. A good thing about the sprite is: hairdo! Jynx has been really brushing her hair lately. XD


FireRed/LeafGreen: Good color palette is good. Pose is great! Cool sprite overall!


Emerald: LOL'd at the animation XD. Her color palette is the same as R/S. That's a shame.


Diamond/Pearl/Platinum: Good color, hair is good. And it's saying "I don't know." The pose is rather decent but it's not the ultimate sprite.


HeartGold/SoulSilver: BEST. JYNX. SPRITE. EVER XD Hair, pose, everything about it! GF (GameFreak) did a well good job here. =)


Black/White: .......it's really similar to the D/P/Pt sprite, but not exactly similar.

BACK SPRITES:


Gen 1: EW! GROSS! YUCK! EWW! GROSS! EWWWWWWWWWWWWW! BAD SPRITE! EW! YUCK! EWW!


Gen 2: =/ no comment.


Gen 3: I don't like it, but I don't hate it either..


Gen 4: Awesome! =)


Gen 5: I don't like it, but I don't hate it either..

SHINY:

Aww..the shiny has nice coloring =3

I'm not sure what's so bad about BWs sprites when they're larger and more well drawn than most of the GBA sprites.

Let's take a look at Nidoqueen's sprites shall we?


R/B

The pose is fine and the colors are a bit off, but thats to be expected. The proportions are a bit off. 7/10


Y

The colors is a improvement and the pose is slighty better. Great sprite for a gen I game, but that isn't saying much. 8/10


R/G

This looks gastly. 2/10


G

A huge step up from the other Nidoqueen sprites. The pose is fantastic. 9/10


S

Same thoughts as Gold's sprite.


C

It's Gold's sprite, but animated. 10/10


R/S/E

The face just ruins it. 4/10


FR/LG

The face is much better now, but I still don't like it for some reason. 6/10


D/P/Plt

The pose is fine, but I want Nidoqueen to be happy. 7/10


HG/SS

It's a bit happier. 8/10


B/W

Why did they choose the D/P/Plt sprite over the HG/SS sprite? 6/10

I'm going to compare sprites of my fave Water Pokemon, Golduck.

Red & Blue: Golduck didn't look bad, a nice shade of blue. 8/10

Yellow: A lighter shade of blue, but a better pose, very similar pose to the DW artwork 7/10

Gold: Not too bad. A cool blue 9/10

Silver: Same opinion as Gold. Pose looks very similar to D/P 8/10

Crystal: More blue, just what I wanted 9/10

Ruby, Sapphire & Emerald: Not too bad, but the face, uhh? 6/10

FireRed & LeafGreen: Cute, like a dancer. 7/10

Diamond & Pearl: Looks like it is dancing. 8/10

Platinum: Same pose as D/P but the first time it's bill is open. 9/10

HeartGold & SoulSilver: Best Golduck sprite yet! 10/10

Black & White: Most Gen I-IV Pokemon retained their D/P/Pt/HG/SS sprites but this one really looks nice 9/10

Shiny: Bill looks too pink but a nice bright blue 8/10

I'm gonna compare the Biker and Roughneck.

Biker
Spoiler:


RBYG


GSC
A darker version of the gen I Biker, I kinda like it.


FRLG
He loses his spiky mohawk, his motorcycle doesn't look as "cartoony" as the previous two.


HGSS
Looks like the FRLG roughneck grew hair, but what's with the Heracross horns on his back?


BW
Is it just me, or does he remind me of Hulk Hogan?


Roughneck
Spoiler:


RBYG
Lol, it's a fat guy with a whip.


FRLG
A younger version of the HGSS Roughneck


DPPtHGSS
Awesome Gyarados shirt is awesome.


BW
Looks like he lost some weight and bought a Krookodile jacket.

This time, I'm looking at the sprites of one of my fave Canine Pokemon - Manectric!

Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald Yellow doesn't look too bright 3/10

Diamond/Pearl/Platinum/HeartGold/SoulSilver Pose not too bad 8/10

Black/White Best Manectric sprite ever! 10/10

Black/White Back Sprite They did a damn good job with the coloring here 10/10

I haven't compared sprites for a long time now...

Twins

G/S/C: Good, but the legs are fat. 3/10

R/S/E: Sprite looks better, only they look more mature, and I thought twins were supposed to be young and innocent :/. 5/10

FR/LG: They look younger, but still mature looking...5/10

D/P/Pt: Now this is how innocent twins are supposed to look like! 7/10

HG/SS: And they keep on becoming cuter...8/10

B/W: Aww :) 10/10

I think the G/S/C twins and B/W was the best in terms of pixel art. The B/W twins are too cute; it makes me want to eat them.

Loggy, I'll have to infract you if you eat the twins. The BW ones are the cutest though imo. They look like they're 2 years old, and 2 year olds are adorable. lol Plus I like that they don't have dark hair like the other twins, excluding the FRLG twins...who don't look 2.

Noooooo don't infractt. i'll be nice to the little girls. ):

Also I think if they had dark grey hair or blue like the R/S/E sprites, it'll ruin their bright pink and green colours.

So now you're the fashion police? lol But yeah, I agree. They were due for a new hair color anyway. All the other twins just looked too similar.

I have noticed in the past that the progression of sprites over 10 years is not very much. I can't wait to see a new version on the 3ds!!!! But, I have to say, I do enjoy pixel art myself, so if it was computerized 3d graphics, I would not be able to keep up with my spriting!

There's an error on Emerald's Shiny Gastly sprite...

But Emerald's animations are lame so I'm not surprised.
