That is better than the first.But again the Scyther looks choppy,and the text is hard to read.Also,I don't really like when the border goes into the banner.It looks bad,IMO.But its still much better than the first...8/10

Okay, prepare to be critisized! >.>

Over all, it's quite a good banner considering it's only your second. But...

Yeah, like SPM said, the border doesn't really go. The backround's nice, but the pokéball in the corner looks kinda like filler. The anime picture looks strange to me--the grey spots look weird in the otherwise monotonously green banner. And finally, the text--the first lines is rather narrow (and there should definitely some form of punctuation between them, but I'm just a grammar geek >.>), and the second font looks nothing like the first. But maybe you were going for that.

Keep up the good work!

Liquid Crystal basically summed it up on the banner. I'm all for monotone, but stick with the color if you will. the only thing I'd ever add would be black (and white in some cases). The Pokeball should be trashed, and the text, if you want minor text, the best idea is usally to use a pixel font, in a very small size. Try dafont.com

The scyther is horrid, get someone to teach you how to use layer masks (I'm too lazy), to safely cut out the hard edges. Also, keep the border on the outside, or make another border on the outside.
