I don't think anyone has done Persian yet:

Red/Blue: The feet are WAY too big, and it looks very awkward. 3/10
Yellow: A bit bright, but I love the sprite, makes it look fierce. 8/10
Gold/Silver: Gold is great. 9/10 But Silver is kinda derp face. 6/10
Crystal: Best sprite ever. 10/10

3rd Gen(They look pretty much the same): A bit too chubby for a Persian. 7/10

Diamond/Pearl/Platinum: Very well done, captures Persian well. 9/10
HG/SS: AMAZING! Finally looks like the right size, and a nice pose. 10/10
B/W: Lost the great pose, but still looks great. 9/10
Time has more value than diamonds.

Someone should do Gligar. Why did the colors keep changing for each one? I would if I had 15 posts.

Here's Typhlosion!

Gold: Pretty good, gets the essentials done 6/10
Silver: Not really sure they needed to have him stand up like that, it's good I guess. 5/10
Crystal: This is pretty much an animated version of Silver reversed. 6/10
RS/E/FRLG: If they had to have him standing completely straight up, this is what they should've done. A good improvement over Silver. 8/10
Diamond/Pearl: Pretty good, a wider version of the 3rd gen sprite. 7/10
Platinum: Like the DP one except not so leaned over. 8/10
HGSS: It looks like they used the DP sprite as a base for this. It's okay. 7/10
Black/White: It's an improved version of the Platinum one, although I will say it looks great animated. 9/10.

Out of all I'd say the BW one is my favorite.


Gold: It looks kind of small compared to what we are used to. 6/10
Silver: A different angle. Pretty good. 6/10
Crystal: A reverse version of the Gold sprite animated. 5/10
RS/FRLG/E: This looks better. It has more space too. 7/10
DPPt: A larger version of the 3rd gen sprite. 7/10
HGSS: I don't like this one. His neck bends down way too much. 4/10
BW: This one is pretty much an animated version of the DPPT sprite. It works though. 8/10
Again, the BW one is my favorite.

I did Gyarados too.

Green: Finally a Green sprite that doesn't look terrible! 5/10
Red/Blue: A more tilted angle. 5/10
Yellow: He's somewhat coiled in this one. 6/10
Gold: He doesn't look as long as he did before. 4/10
Silver: He looks a little longer than in the Gold one. 5/10
Crystal: Same as Silver. 5/10
RSE: Cool, he got his length back. 6/10
FRLG: This one's done a lot better than in Yellow. 7/10
Diamond/Pearl: Pretty good. Does the basics. 5.5/10
Platinum: Basically the DP sprite going downwards. 5.5/10
HGSS: This one's pretty good, he's more spread out. 6.5/10
BW: The Platinum sprite animated. 7/10
Out of all these, my favorite goes to either HGSS or BW.

Edit: I have more!

Gold: It's not that common that you find a sprite where the Pokemon is looking right at you. 7/10
Silver: Okay, now this is what we're used to. 5.5/10
Crystal: He looks pretty happy. 6/10
RS/FRLG/E: Wobbling? Wow, the Emerald animations were lame. 4/10
Diamond/Pearl: This is pretty good. 5/10
Platinum: Same as DP except arms are in a different place. 5/10
HGSS: Better than DP. 6/10
Black/White: This is great. This is exactly what the Emerald animation should have been. 10/10
Winner goes to Black/White.

I hope this one hasn't been done yet: Gastly!

Green: Looks like a ghost. 5/10
Red/Blue: This one looks more evil. 5/10
Yellow: Looks more like Sugimori's art. 6/10
Gold: I don't really think the hot pink works. 4.5/10
Silver: Looking downwards. 5/10
Crystal: Even more hot pink. 4.5/10
RS/FRLG/E: This doesn't really make sense to me. 5/10
Diamond/Pearl: Basic Gastly: 5/10
Platinum: Wider eyes looking left. 5/10
HGSS: Even wider eyes, more fixated look. 7/10
Black/White: Platinum sprite animated 7/10
Winner goes to either HGSS or BW.

DOUBLE EDIT: Here's that Gligar, Shingy1!

Gold: Good. 5/10
Silver: It's a different angle. 5/10
Crystal: An animated version of the Gold sprite. 6/10
RS/FRLG/E: This is pretty good. The animation is pretty lame though. 5.5/10
Diamond/Pearl: Another pretty basic one. 6/10
Platinum: For some reason I don't like this one. Maybe it's because the eyes stand out so much to me. 6/10
HeartGold/SoulSilver: This is my favorite so far. I like it better with the light purple coloring. 7.5/10
Black/White: A new animation. I like this better than the HeartGold one. 8/10
My favorite goes to Black/White!

Btw, what I think happened with Gligar's coloring is that Sugimori's original art was dark purple so they attempted to match that. The reason GSC's coloring was light purple/pink was because I don't think they could bring it down to dark purple. Gastly is a perfect example of this. Then when he redrew Gligar for HGSS he changed the coloring to light purple.

His eyes are gigantic and wide open which is slightly unsettling and weird.

It's caused by poor shading on his eyes. The tops of his eyes are brighter than they should be, this draws attention to them in a way that's not natural. From a human point of view, the top of our eyes are almost always obscured by the eyelids or at the very least they're a large dark area serve to draw attention away from them. Because here the lighting makes it seem as if we can see Cilan's entire iris it gives the impression that he's forcing his eyes open very wide.

It's something that can be toned down pretty easily e.g:

Sceptile really took some advice and went to the gym!
West, on a plane bound west
I see her stretching out below
Land, blessed mother land
The place where I was born

Scars, she’s got her scars
Sometimes it starts to worry me
Cause lose, I don’t want to lose
Sight of who we are

From the mountains high
To the wave-crashed coast
There’s a way to find
Better days I know

It’s been a long hard ride
Got a ways to go
This is still the place
That we all call home

I'm going to do Piloswine cos I have a reference to it (the number of my apartment is Piloswine's National Pokedex number: 221).

Gold: Piloswine's worst sprite, yuck. 1/10

Silver: OK, but still not a good pose. 4/10

Crystal: Still a little better than Gold or Silver. 5/10

Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald/FireRed/LeafGreen: Nice improvement although the color is a little off. 6/10

Diamond/Pearl: Same coloring as R/S/E, but better pose. 6/10

Platinum: Finally, a Piloswine sprite with decent coloring! 9/10

HeartGold/SoulSilver: Nice pose, improvement on coloring, this is the best Piloswine sprite! 10/10

Black/White: It's the HG/SS sprite in motion! 10/10

I really really hate the colors for the first gen :( It's head is messed up too. The second gen is teenie weenie bit better, the third gen is a lot better than the first gen and second as they added yellow bits to Vaporeon's ears and which made it less dull :D The fourth gen Vaporeon sprite is the cutest <3 Aaand the fifth one is cute too but not as cute as the fourth one tbh.. xD;

I really miss my brown Sneasel, which is why I play my Gold and Silver now and then. Brown Sneasel is awesome with its blue 'feather'.

There a reason Sneasel got a sprite recoloring for Crystal forward? Its shiny has stayed rather consistant. Not that the current Sneasel colors are bad, I just liked the brown.

@ Marowak losing weight :p

Some of the Japanese Red & Green sprites make me giggle... although all first Gen ones look weird now! Here are a few of my choice favourites from those games:



[img] Yet more derp

Just what?!

Uber egg!

This just looks weird

Another fatty

Why is it so angry-looking?!

(Vaporeon's back sprite) this just never looked like how it should to me

Again, just doesn't look right

I don't like the lines on it

This looks too skinny haha!

This one always gets me! Just LOL
