Exeggutor was a real beauty in GenI
(sorry dont know how to format as picture...)
I think its alright to post gen III pokemon here... It wasent clear sorry.
Never the less, this is the worst gen III sprite. It looks like a human rock with an overbite...
Time for another thread bump!
This time, I have been testing out Pokemon Red for the heck of it, and in the process have been getting some interesting screencaps and coming up with captions for them as well, including criticism on the sprites...
"What the heck is THAT thing?!"
(I actually said this as a 10-year-old, not realizing that was supposed to be Gastly.)
Me: "Where's Nurse Joy?"
Lady: "I'm the generic nurse exclusive to these early games only."
Other trainers' Ivysaur stand on all fours. Mine can stand on two legs!
"Look, ma! That Machop is roadkill!"
Yep, I nicknamed her Tubby due to the sprite :P
"Hey look at this, a baldy!"
"Does Celadon have two Pokemon centers?"
Old Lady: "Pokemon? No, this is a hotel for people, we're full up. Won't have room for... another 20 minutes. You wait?"
"Then why is there an invisible PC here? Is this a haunted hotel?"
"Looks more like a Gniffok to me!"
"Why is your Kangaskhan laughing at us?"
*"You Sexy Thing" plays as Vileplume emerges from its Pokeball!*
"OMG, THAT'S SCARY! Tubby, shock it right now!"
Old Man: "Goodbye, cruel world!"
*jumps down and...*
Everyone deserves a second chance!
"Wild Pokemon coming!"
"Why are these hanging out along the Cinnabar coast line?"
"Yikes! I'd better notify Professor Oak about this strange new Pokemon!"
"Why did I suddenly get tons of rare candies instead of a few?!"
"Yuck! A pipe!"
Haha, an invisible PC. Is that really true? I should try that out next time. Probably the hotel is a modified Pokemon Centre or something, perhaps to save memory, and they forgot to do something about the PC. The floor and the rest is the same as a Pokemon Centre.
Captain Lincoln Stern, you stand here accused of...
12 counts of murder in the first degree
14 counts of armed theft of Federation property
22 counts of piracy in high space
18 counts of fraud
37 counts of rape
and 1 moving violation....how do you plead?
And yes Gama, I did feature that hideous Red/Blue Golbat sprite, complete with a comment on it!
I'm willing to give Red/blue/green a break since they are a time when when pokemon was just starting out. I think their kind of cute in a "so ugly it's cute way". if any gen has ugly sprites it's gen 5.
I have to admit Mew seems to be hit or miss. It can look either cute or like a aborted fetus.
I HATE this sprite with all my heart!
