So, after I did my research I found this thread http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthr...ight=3D+Models but no one has posted in 30 days so I am making the Part II of this thread!


Some Pokemon changed a lot now that they are in 3D. I love the fact that flying types are actually flying now and all but I don't like some of the designs.

For example, Pidgeotto. I don't like how they designed its body.


What about you? Discuss


(this is the first thread I am posting I feel a little bit awkward )

I don't like some animations. I don't like how Charizard swats his tail at the opponent for Wing Attack, or Tropius's idle animation.

I used to be very indifferent towards Archeops. His B/W sprite looked like it was trying way too hard to make an intimidating face. When I first saw his X/Y model in-game though, I fell in love with the chubby, derpy bird that can barely stay airborne. An intensionally derpy Pokemon is much better than a Pokemon that tries to look cool but fails, imo.
Also, Sableye's twitching (he is now officially a psycho).
I can't really think of a model I particularly dislike. I guess I could nitpick about how thin Alakazam's moustache looks, but that's pretty much it.

Agreed. Some animations don't look quite right. But what are you gonna do? They had to program several animations for 720ish Pokémon.

I am glad Hyper Beam makes the sound it did in Gen 2 (and looks a bit better now too). It made the best sound. I just hope that Aeroblast follows suit and makes the same sound it did in Gen 2 as well. And Flamethrower looks fantastic.

I also wanna see what most of the legendaries' signature moves look and sound like this gen. But gotta wait for PokeBank.

I never let my Fletchinder evolve since I didn't like the Talonflame graphics.... it's level 100 now, so too late if it looks better in the next game It's not IV stellar, or anything, so no loss really.

EDIT: Oh, old Pokemon... erm... of the ones we can see so far, I'm a little disappointed with Zangoose. I never had a problem with the tail in older versions; Perhaps because I couldn't see it all before. The jagged look irks me.

I did notice that Kangaskhan throws a punch when it uses its Bite attack... that's a little weird :/

The Tail Whip animation is a bit silly, espeically when the pokemon you use does have a tail and it's not whipping about. Even sillier are the pokes without tails doing Tail Whip!

This. However, at the beginning I lol'd at Archeops' 3D model but then it grew on me.
But I don't like what they did to Weavile. It looks smaller, and I guess more realistic and less cool, which in Weavile's case is kinda unfortunate.
Sneasel, on the other hand, is badass. Crossing its arms and stuff. When I first saw it in-game, it felt like it was a new Pokemon haha.

I love Swoobat but one of the things that bugged me in the previous games was how bad its battle sprites were. He looks really great in 3D, which is great for me as one of the few who like using him. The Eeveelutions all look wonderful, as do the majority of the other older Pokemon. There are a few that are a little bit disappointing, but for the most part I am happy with the way they turned out.

It kinda bothers me how flying pokemon don't have standing animations. Some of them look weird hovering over the ground like Skarmory and Tropius.

I also realised that Barboach has two small eyes and a mouth. Ever since Sapphire I've believed his mouth was an eye.

There's been countless moments of realisation while looking through the pokedex. There's loads of little quirks you don't really notice until you're rotating their model in the pokedex. For example I was shocked to see Fearow had a big white patch of fur/feathers on its back.

Also Bellossom has no legs D:

Not really but it's changed my mind on how some of the new pokemon sprites looked when they were first released to the public. Still think they could have done a better job with the new pokemon this gen.

When I first saw Eelektross in B/W I was like "That's one huge eel", and then when I saw it's 3D model I was like "It's THAT small?" Not to mention it's thin as well compared to his B/W sprite

Yeah, Sableye's a creepy little dude. xD

I can't really think of an alternative way they could have done this, but it kind of bothers me how fish Pokemon just hover and "swim" in the air during battles.

Also, Salamence does not flap its wings to stay in the air. I wish they just had him standing, he looks kind of silly just hovering with his short legs dangling.

Edit: Oh, just remembered another (kind of dumb) one. I don't know why, but I always thought that in the Polywag family, the swirl was the mouth, and I thought the little red mouth on Polywag was a nose - it just blew my mind when I saw its animation, with it opening the real mouth. I don't know why I kept thinking the swirl was a mouth, I already knew that it was supposed to resemble the visible intestines of tadpoles, but every time I look at a Polywag, I just think it has a really big mouth.

3d pokemon is a lot better than sprite pokemon, in some aspects. Just the richness the 3d models provide makes going back to playing older gen games and seeing pixel sprite pokemon just so...bleh. However, some o the pokemon animations in 3d, as others have said, also feel meh.

Archeops was definitely not what I expected haha. And Cofagrigus, idk, it just looks odd when its all bulgy. It's cool to see like Slugma and non-solid Pokemon in 3D though, like we did in Colosseum or Stadium.

Really like the animations. Flamethrower coming out of Charizard's mouth, Delphox using the tree branch for attack, pokemon with tails shaking their tails for tail whip, and zigzagoon running around madly before attacking.
Downside is that X and Y has littlr post game stuff to do, other than IV training and getting shinies and that pathetic Looker's mission.

I thought Vaporeon's older sprites made it look gorgeous, but the 3D model in Pokemon X/Y makes it look...lame? I don't know, the way that its tail just lays there when its idle puts me off. To avoid adding to all the negativity and complaining towards the 3D models, let me just say that they all look incredibly detailed, and Pokemon has never looked this amazing before. I prefer 3D models to 2D sprites, anyway, and none of the 3D models look hideous, so I can excuse the few inconsistencies.

not really, all it did for me was add more Pokémon to my Poképhilia list... I never really wanted Venusaur as a Pokémon I am attracted to in a Poképhilia way until I saw it in 3d

That's another thing that really shocked me. Also its B/W sprite makes it look clumsy and awkward....but its 3d model makes it look quick and graceful. One of the bigger differences to the old sprites.

The funny thing is when I first saw an Eelektross in the game, I was only half paying attention at the time, and was like "WTF is that thing?!.... oh, wait, its an Eelektross".
