Chesu has proven his case really well, all you really need to do is credit the creator of the artwork and design. Nothing is wrong with pixel-overs and what you're doing, but if you say: "I made the fakemon myself. Here's my artwork and pixel-over." etc. etc. then we're going to run into some problems. You can link to the original artist as well which would be really helpful to prevent more of these situations. This is more or less considered fanart.

If anything, I encourage you to do some more, but like I said, give credit where credit is due. Pixel-overs are considered sprite art but it's not completely scratch work which most pixel artists move onto. I personally am a fan of them but it doesn't help teach you the fundamentals of shading if you are trying to transfer the artwork's shading onto the sprite work.
