The sprites are disappointing.

Cool.

Not cool.

Great.

Wtf!?

Cool.

Weird.

They got it.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/4/4f/Spr_3f_074.png

They don't got it.

This looks wrong.

Neck is too thin.

They really screwed up the sprites.

Maybe thats because Raichu is a yellow-orange blob :tongue:

I don't know about you, but Gyarados' new sprite is the best yet.

Nah. http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/5/5c/Spr_4d_026_m.png

Here he looks like something that someone put hard work into.

Here it seemed like they were too lazy to define Raichu's features and cut several corners.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/4/4d/Spr_4h_026_m.png

It just looks off.

Are you high or mental? I think those are the best yet, but everybody has there opinion....

i will agree that maybe the hg/ss sprites arent the best, but they are different from the other sprites and they look really cool and cartoony, rather than looking like generic pixel art.

EDIT: except for jolteon's sprite, that just sucks

I don't see anything wrong with the Gyarados sprite. If you ask me, they've improved it greatly.

They messed up the face.

Everything is out of proportion in most of these new HG/SS sprites

In my opinion, HG/SS have some of the best sprites. The D/P/Pt sprites, most of them, just irk me. Most notably Vaporeon, Pidgeot, Raichu, Charizard, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Raikou, Umbreon, and some others. HG/SS, I think, made a lot of them a whole lot better. I just wish they would have done that with all sprites. D:

It's all a matter of opinion, really.

Nah, your stomach is just clouding your judgment. :crackup:

To be honest, I disagree with you on everything except Machoke.
It's just a matter of preference.

Also, since we're on this subject, I absolutely don't like Poliwag's sprite. It looks cross-eyed and I don't know how the guy who made it didn't notice that.

What kind of proportions did they have to begin with? Mew's head has shrunk about 50% in size since 1998, and no one seems to have a problem with it.

The little nitpicks you have with these sprites just seem rather trivial to me. I always figured that part of the main idea of Pokemon is that the creatures look strange.

But, I agree about the Poliwag sprite. The glare in the left eye is significantly larger than the glare in the right, and he just looks a little odd. The only other sprite I've really had major problems with is Jolteon, and that's just because the angle of the head makes the face look different.

Personally I like the sprites to Platinum/HG/& SS.

Quite frankly, they all look exactly the same.

I like any sprite as long as it's new. Probably, the only one I didn't like so much was Mewtwo's. They made his body all skinny.

I don't have a problem with any of those. I don't really like jolteon's(I think everyone agrees with this one) and moltres'(It seriously looks like a rubber chicken).

One I don't really dislike, but I think it's funny, is suicune's. Just because when it uses ice beam, it looks like it's coming out it's butt xD. Also, is suicune's HG/SS sprite the first sprite to be facing to the right?

Also the best sprite?

Hands down.

Hahaha Glad i'm not the only one who noticed that! I kept going use Ice beam again I have to see that again, until I caught it...

Though I still believe the Advanced sprites had a lot better detail/shading than the DS sprites, I think the HGSS sprites are actually a big improvement on Diamond/Pearl/Platinum. Most of the sprites are actually really cute and have interesting/new poses as well. These are some of my favourites:

I do agree with you on Machoke, but I think the rest you listed aren't bad. Gyarados looks a lot more evil in the newer sprite, which fits its personality better. I don't like Raichu's mouth, but aside from that, it fits its anime appearance a lot better. The Pika-line are supposed to be a bit chubby. xD There are always some bad sprites in the bunch, but overall I think this lot was pretty good. =)

wow the new gyarados sprite is awesome how could you say it looks bad and also the feraligatr and typhlosian sprites are great.

I agree i just love the poliwrath and gyardos sprites and riachi and pikachu. Typhlosions is a much needed improvement albeit minnor

Yes, the Jolteon does look strange and my friend also thought Kabutops looked bad ass.

I think this one looks messed up as well.

Flareon's leg just throws me off.

Also, if you guys are hunting Raikou during Sunset Hour, look between Raikou's hind legs. :crackup:

Jolteon's made me go wtf. It honestly does look disabled.

You see, Its just a matter of oppinion. I now Jolteon sucks but the legends and the ones above rock in my oppinion
