    Probopass' platnium sprite looks like he scared and hiding in a corner
    That animated geodude reminds me of an old man yelling at kids

    A lot of the Red, Blue, and Green sprites truly were ugly looking. They had improved a bit in the Yellow version, and got better in the Gold, Silver, and Crystal versions. Apparently, as Pokemon evolved, so have the appearances of Pokemon sprites. Although, some of the Platinum sprites do look quite weird.

    Even though we think that some of the poses of the Dppt sprites are hideous we can't ignore the fact that ehy no longer look demented or abnormal, they look how they're meant to look now ... if you get what I mean

    Ninetales was never supposed to look how she looks in her D/P sprite.

    Ok this back sprite of Charizard makes it look anorexic.

    Poor Guy

    So do you mean to tell me that this Ninetales sprite is better than this one?

    As in the quality, clarity and overall viewing of the sprites have improved. I did mention before that poses and what nots may be worse for some Pokemon but I still prefer that Ninetales pose.

    yes the poses some of the older sprites had were genious but the quality was not, though taken into account the space they had, they were good for back then, so any of the newer style sprites could probally look great in the poses of there prehistoric brethern.

    I liked the old Arcanine pose the best xD
     
  12. Meh, the old sprites were hard to look at. But the sprites from the G/S/C are my favorites since they gave the pokemon some personality (especially the Crystal animations)... Yeah.

    Quality = D/P/P
    Personality = G/S/C

    IMHO.

    Yeah, the new sprites today from Gen.3-4 look real well, and good enough to see.

    The old ones are way too blocky, compared to the sprites today, plus they're all moving at the beginning. :)

    Anyone remember how bad Golbat's sprite was in R/B? It made it look like a twisted dragon. Also, Charizard's sprite looked almost sweet in R/B.

    God, it creeps me out to see that the Porygon sprite is always watching you. Charizard looks deformed along with odd Mew. Wigglytuff looks like it's head is in the process of shrinking....

    I really wanna know what Wigglytuff was on when they made this sprite

    Neither, actually. This is actually the best Ninetales sprite and one of the best Pokemon sprites overall.

    The DP machoke looks like Barney on steroids, if you look at the head just right.
