Which reminded me, saw this pic a while ago on Tumblr where you can see basically the evolution (no pun haha) of Pikachu's sprites. I think I like them up till 2nd gen and 3rd gen is where they start going down for me. Although I do like the orangy colour in some of the later sprites, but not the model at all.

    What's the last two sprites' game? It looks awesome! Just don't like the color though.
    And the Crystal sprite looks like it's waving at me.

    I'm guessing it's Platinum, I'm really not sure though cause I can't read Japanese lol.
    edit - Ok I looked it up and it's the 5th gen sprites, all of them. And the orangy one is the shiny.

    Crystal's Pikachu sprite is actually cute. That's such a difficult thing for me to admit, lol. :(

      Myeah the whole lower row is, but in Platinum they have a different animation and those last two are those frames. This is one of the first Silver sprites I actually like lol.

        Is that really from B2W2? That's huge! :| You should have found a better Pokemon though lololol. But seriously, that is huge. I can't wait to see that thing animated. Wow. But it's slightly cut off, which is why I'm a bit skeptical as to how that can be an official sprite.

        Actually, it says that they're exactly 96x96, no more or less. o3o
        I just inspected every element of them, and yeah, they fit the maximum.
        I quite like the sprites, especially Thundurus'. People say it's more of a dragon, when I think it looks more feline than anything else. o3o

        If it had cute lil ears, I might think so. ;3 And ummmm in that post before my last one, there was a different sprite with the wings spread. You changed it, bro. D; It might have just been a fan sprite.

          The sprites are certainly bigger if you take into account their animations:
          Spoiler:


          I like the little wing spread thing therian-Tornadus does :3

            If it's true, then yes, it is! ^^ I hope we don't have to worry about Pokemon posing at a really weird angle, just to fit the size limit anymore, like some of the pre-BW back sprites (Crobat, Machamp, etc).

            However, speaking of Therian Formes, I like Thundurus' and Landorus' more compared to Tornadus'. I always thought Tornadus' Therian Forme look kind of funny. o__o He doesn't seem fitting for a bird in my opinion.

              Most of the pictures in this thread seem to be broken.

              I hate that color scheme for a bird, so it's not really the bird form that bothers me, just the fact that Tornadus is that puke green and toxic purple color. Gross.

              And this is an old thread, so most pictures likely have broken image links now. No big deal. It's not something I would bother going around and fixing.

                What is the deal with its back sprite? It's always bugged me how it looks like they forgot to draw the other half.

                I don't anything wrong with it tbh. Almost every Pokémon has a backsprite with only half the Pokémon showing.

                Yeah, that's how they used to be lol. Though I kinda agree. I wish there was at least a bit more of the Dustox. That backsprite kinda implies that it's laying down on the ground or something. Beautifly got better backsprite treatment. WAY better treatment.



                Heck, it's only missing a few pixels, but basically, its whole body is there. Poor Dustox. :( Looks like it got corrected in gen IV though.

                Comparing these two, although Black and White's is much more up to date, I prefer the pose from Red & Blue, it makes Rapidash look more radiant and graceful. Don't get me wrong they both look great it's just the current one is kind of predictable and well average.

                  Recently, I was working on a utility in Game Maker that allows one to compare the sprites of RS, FRLG, and E. When I was cycling between Ruby/Sapphire and Emerald, I found a few differences in about 43 Pokémon sprites as listed in the following spoiler.

                  Spoiler:

                  006 Squirtle
                  007 Wartortle
                  009 Caterpie
                  036 Clefable
                  053 Persian
                  057 Primeape
                  061 Poliwhirl
                  062 Poliwrath
                  064 Kadabra
                  067 Machoke
                  075 Graveler
                  078 Rapidash
                  104 Cubone
                  108 Lickitung
                  109 Koffing
                  115 Kangaskhan
                  120 Staryu
                  122 Mr. Mime
                  126 Magmar
                  127 Pinsir
                  138 Omanyte
                  142 Aerodactyl
                  143 Snorlax
                  154 Meganium
                  171 Lantern
                  178 Xatu
                  208 Steelix
                  212 Scizor
                  213 Shuckle
                  222 Corsola
                  248 Tyranitar
                  251 Celebi
                  282 Blaziken
                  287 Mightyena
                  294 Dustox
                  308 Spinda
                  314 Wailord
                  332 Trapinch
                  381 Relicanth
                  387 Illumise
                  394 Gardevoir
                  406 Rayquaza
                  410 Deoxys


                  For a few examples, Wartortle is blue in Ruby/Sapphire while in Emerald he looks purple like in Fire Red and Leaf Green. Also, Cubone's "fingernails" aren't visible in his Ruby/Sapphire sprite.

                    The Rapidash sprite has a much better pose in Gen 1. I think i like the Crystal one better though.

                      I'm assuming you're talking her blue sprite, right? Blue pose is kinda pretty, to say the least. What I do is simply and logically call the sprites Green (Japanese Red and Green) and Blue (Blue, and International versions of Red and Blue).

                        I really don't understand what happened with Exeggcute's sprite during Gen I.

                        Here's its Japanese Red and Green front sprite:



                        Here's the back sprite:



                        Okay, now bearing in mind that Pokemon Red and Blue take on the supposed "graphical updates" of the Japanese Pokemon Blue, this is the "updated" sprite from those games:



                        What in the name of christ happened?! Did the middle egg suddenly contract gigantism?

                        I think this kind of thing happened with quite a few Pokemon in Red and Blue. Koffing randomly switching its skull and crossbones to its forehead comes to mind.

                          Haha what a great post!
                          I remember that most of the RBG sprites bother me when i was a kid and i always think.. "Why? Why X pokemon looks like this when the artwork its so much diferent", specially with the last evo of my starter sprite, Venusaur.. His RB back sprite always disgusted me xDD

                          Yea,I agree used to think that all the time . Back then R/B/G/Y were GB games so I guess that's why the sprites are a bit...ergh. Looking at one of Exeggcute's sprites, the middle egg suddenly turned into a giant somehow ._.

                          Even now,some of the sprites look kind of funny to me...
