Absolutely adorable!

I love this roundish, soft-colored style you have going here. Very unique.

The only thing I dislike is Leafegon's spotty-style highlights. They make it seem shiny, which Is probably what you were going for, but just seem so... un-uniform it bothers me. The one on it's chest is especially oddly placed.

Also, Pireel's leftmost leg looks too big.. Is it stepping forward? it's a little odd, if so. It would be difficult to step forward + turn it's head with that sort of body shape.

Seriously though, I love all of them. Can't wait to see more~

Yep. A fakemon thread from your's truly.​
Yours truly. :p Sorry for being a grammar nazi.

And it's about time, too. I'll be just posting all Pokemon of the fan game I'm helping out with. I'm the spriter.

So, give it up for the Pokemon of the Emort Region!

I'm so glad you've finally put these guys up for them all to see! Spread the work of Emort! :D

Um...yeah, that's all I really had to say, most of what I had quibbles with I told you already, but a few others may include the same things that Cece said.

So yeah, I hope you post more here! XD​

I've fixed the grammar mistake and updated the first post with three sprites. Flamane, Pirashock, and Protruik.

Enjoy! And more are on their way!

Thanks for the comment about the style! You would not believe how long it took me to gain that. ^_^

Although, I'd have to disagree with you about Leafegon. The spot on it's chest will vanish now, but everything else is fine. If I enlarge the spaces at all, it seems too round of shading and just wouldn't suit the sprite. If I take them away, it doesn't have enough depth. So, the only way around this is to leave them be, and frankly, it doesn't look bad. :/

Yes. Pireel is stepping forward, but I see what you're saying. It actually looks better when i shorten the leg a pixel. So, thanks for pointing that out.

I like the fire evo line a lot! Fire+Awesome Kitteh spriting= WIN!

Why yes, it exists
These are great sprites and I understand that this round, soft, "pillow" style of spriting (That's what I call it, if it makes sense) is difficult. I've tried to make sprites this way and they all look like a bunch of Voltorbs stuck together. My sister has it naturally (And she doesn't even make sprites that often) and I'm like "BLARGAGH YOU SUCK" so I have to commend you for this skill in stylistic interpretation.

Now for critiques! Leafegon is in need of some more highlights. A few little spots here and there don't cut it with a Fakemon that has so much of one color in a space.

Felayme's front left leg is at an unusual angle. It makes him look like he's going to fall over. XD

Pireel's leg, like Cece said, is in a wierd place. A leg that size in relation to his body should be on the side closer to us. (Albeit with different shading, of course)

Lastly, Protruik's a little chaotic. It seems like there's too much squeezed into that 80x80 space and he looks like a pretty large guy. Maybe it's that his tail is larger than his body, or that he's got a lot of different colors. I don't know. It just strikes me as being a little frenzied.

These are mostly nitpicks, but otherwise, these are some great sprites. Keep at it!

for pireel's dex entry, it sounds not like how a normal pokemon entry would sound like. Mainly since you used KILL, which would not be appropriate for a game that's been rated E (everyone) all this time. Try using soft words like SHOCKED, or STUNNED.

The sprites themselves look awesome!Love the color schemes of all of them. One complaint though, Leafegon's head looks a bit too tall in length. If this were to be a game, I would choose Pireel.

Yeah...what we're planning on doing with this fangame is break a few of the walls with the canon pokemon, mainly making the game a tad bit less kid friendly, which may attribute to the dex entry given.

Thanks for the insight anyway :p

True, but does it really make since to do that, if your going to be fighting with cute monsters, and using chibi styled overworlds in a bright and colorful world?

I think in order to truly break any walls of pokemon, you would have to change a lot of aspects of it. The only game I've seen that has done that is Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne, and thats a different style completely.

I'm not trying to knock on your game's premise that much, especially given its a sprite thread, but I've never seen one successful fangame that deviates from the norm.

I changed it! Sorry. That was my bad. I'm not so good at writing flavour text, and I don't think Starrmyt meant making it THAT little of a kids game.

Just the storyline will be a bit more complex than usual.

Awwww, I loved them, specially Flamane (L) You're a great spriter. Btw, I think Kittorch's head would be better with a more little bit of shadow. The rest is absolutely perfect.

I love the concepts of your fakemon. They're all very original and you've made the sprites beautifully. The only two that really bother me are Pireel and Pirashock. Pireel mainly because on fin looks bigger than the other. And Pirashock because I feel some perception is wrong. Mainly it's jaw, and the white fin things to the side of it's head. I thought maybe if they were on the other side as well, they would be visible somewhere on the sprite. One thing that I noticed with your fire starters though is the way you sprited the fire. I love it. And it works as well. It's a very effective way to sprite fire, and it's not the same as existing ways. Great work, and I look forward to seeing more.

I really like the fakemon but I also have some minor commets:

leafegon looks a little too simple for me. It's a final evolution (and a dragon type) so I expect a somewhat busy sprite. So I suggest putting some leafs on it or simething.

I really don't like flaymane. I really like it's prevo's but his face just doens't feel right. I think his face is too low compared to his body. and I don't know why but the flame on his head just doesn't look right.

also I do'nt see soo much comparison of pirachock and his evo. I suggest giving him some more of the green colors of his evo.

I love the Lion starters awesome idea.
But the sherlock holmes quote im not sure is right. Doesnt he say sumthing about spitting terminated?

KAZAAAAAAAAAAAM!!!!!
This thread needs more posts to balance out 'kips awesomeatude >:C
I was actually gonna post that on C-spriting, im sure that would of gone down well D;
The only actual problem i can see atm ( as im still half asleep ) is the lack of creativity on leafegon, its a grass/dragon type and usually the final evo of a grass starter has something that remotely resembles plant life, all i see is weird red things on it. Also, its legs are very awkwardly placed i cant quite pin point all the problems yet but when i do I'll edit this post

Wow. Boy do I have a lot of stuff to do. I was hoping to move onto new sprites. But, I guess I have a lot to do with these.

Awwww, I loved them, specially Flamane (L) You're a great spriter. Btw, I think Kittorch's head would be better with a more little bit of shadow. The rest is absolutely perfect.

Um...no. If I put too much shading onto the head, it will ruin the sprite. I'm sorry. Well, at least for me, it will ruin it.

Thank you. I have fixed Pireel, seeing as many people have thought this. And as for Pirashock...I hate the sprite. I'm probably going to resprite it soon, along with Protruik, seeing as I want it to be less crowded. :p

Um, I don't think you mean 'busy', because a busy sprite wouldn't be good. I think you mean more complexities and less of a simplistic design. But here's something you really can't see on the sprite, that is there. It's whole back is covered in leaves and there are three flowers right before its tail which open up when it's sunny out.

I may change the sprite's pose to show those more.

And do you mean Flamane, or Felayme. If you mean Flamane, I'm probably respriting him too.

That's Protruik's design and, I'm sorry, but I'm not changing Pirashock's to suit Protruik's.

I love the Lion starters awesome idea.

No. Sherlock Holmes does not say that. Why would he? That sounds...stupid...But thank you for the comment about my sprites. ^_^

Yes. Please edit your post when you know of more things! :D

Thank you all for commenting. I believe that I have tons of work to be doing now. Yay. ^_^

Very Well Done sprites although the only problem I see is with the Chamelica-Leafegon line as shaunybug said all final evolution grass starters do have some resemblance to plant life, on salavern I see some leaves prtruding from is ankle-area but these are squished into a smaller red area on Leafegon, try to make some type of plant that is a part of the Chamelica line like the bulb on 001 which turns into a flower on 003's back, the parts on 152's neck that turn into a flower around 154's neck, the tail on 252 which turns into a tree like object on 254, and 387's Shell which also grows into a tree on 389.
