Identical Sprites Between Games
I've been looking at the various Pokémon sprites from all generations, and I've noticed a lot look similar if not identical. Aside the fact that all Gen 2 and 3 sprites (minus Deoxys and Teddiursa) are the same in Ruby & Sapphire as they are in FireRed & LeafGreen, does anyone know if other sprites have been reused in different games/generations? Especially Unown. Are all its sprites identical in every game since Ruby and Sapphire?

I'm sure that the Ho-Oh sprite has been altered for graphics and such, but it's pose in Gen IV is identical in Gen II.

maybe cause FR/LG were part of the 3rd generation like R/S idk it seems there is a new 100 pokemon every 2 years -.-"

For example, it seems to me like the Unown sprites (supposedly due to their simplicity) used in Ruby and Sapphire are identical to the sprites in Diamond and Pearl. But as Daggerwolf has pointed out sprites like Ho-oh have been redrawn in the same pose.
So the question really is, has Nintendo been lazy at all with any of the sprites between games, or do they just look incredibly similar?

I know a couple poses have been reused, but also upgraded to the current generation's artworl

Most of the Gen II backsprites were reused, I know that.
