With me on this forum, you should NOT have asked for criticism. Okay, let's start with the pattern on the tech border. It's boring, and consistant. The tech border itself needs more detail then horizontal, diagonal, and vertical lines, and should not be cut off at every corner. The outer glow is yellow, which isn't consitant with the banner's color scheme. Red, grey, or white would've been better.The tect is very difficult to read. Try making the bevel smaller. The recoloring of the pokemon is so-so, and you should've left white on Gyarados's eyes. The images are choppy, with bits of white surrounding the,. Those need to be removed one way or another. The plaid background isn't what I would've picked, but good job making it dark. Finally, the entire banner is way too big. It's more like a plaque. Try cropping it in places where you don't need to see...
