Thread: Most Messed up Shiny Sprite.

  1. #1

    Default Most Messed up Shiny Sprite.

    So, I was looking at the Shiny Sprites of various Pokemon and I got to thinking... Some Sprites are just so....."Wrong."

    I mean, Roserade for example, actually becomes dull and Colorless as a Shiny.

    Dragonite's pre-evolutions are Bright pink but becomes Green with Pink wings..? I mean, what's up with that?

    And then there are some Pokemon who's Sprites are almost no different between them and their Shiny Sprites,
    with only a infinitesimal change in their hues.

    I just think, the powers-that-be could of tried a little harder on these.

    Xatu, Kadabra, Garchomp, Dewgong, Blissey, and Hippowdon look nearly the same shiny and normal.

    Id say Garchomp, you cant tell it's shiny except the sparkles because it's color is that similar to a normal Garchomp. Other that that I'd say Krookodile. It looks off without it's "shades" which it lacks in it's shiny form.

    Dragonite and Krookodile's shiny sprites are quite bad.

    I think they were referencing Puff the Magic Dragon with that. Not entirely sure...

    I hate Sawsbuck's shiny sprite. I accidentally released a shiny Deerling when breeding, belatedly realizing my mistake. Why make a shiny nearly identical to the normal kind? Especially on a 'Mon that is not (imo) as great as it should be.

    I think it's a shame that the Sandile line loses their glasses motif when they become shiny.
    Oh?

    Finneon and Lumineon. They're almost khaki colored which is kinda dull. Then there's Bidoof, that's maybe a shade or two lighter than its normal color. Yeah, not worth the trouble with those guys.

    I'd say Emboar. Light-blue doesn't go well with a Fire-type at all and turns it into a disgusting mish-mash.

    Who is this git?

    Heracross' shiny form is pretty bad, that bright fuchsia is simply hideous.

    Weavile's is also terrible, the combination of pale pink skin and yellow feathers makes it look like a plucked chicken.

    *Shiver* I agree with the Emboar complaint. Actually, I'd usually like blue fire Pokemon, but I thought that the orange hues were slightly nauseating in comparison to the rest of the sprite.

    That would be Krokorok's shiny sprite.

    Any shinies that vary slightly from the original tend to irk me. Simisear is one I know as a fact, but I'm sure there's a list.

    Also Krookodile because of the lack of glasses and the fact that it makes the eyes look like tiny dots.
    Once upon a time there was a leafeon. There wasn't anything special about him. He was just a regular leafeon.
    But there's a story behind the leafeon.

    Oh look. A deviantART.
