Didn't they also come out in like 1995? Good graphics were hard to come by. I never really liked how they looked when you'd have them out; like Nidorina. She always looked squashed and her ass looked like the cheeks were larger than her body itself
In LG she looks awesome. Hard to think how the games first came out long ago and it seems only like yesterday
I never liked Growlithe until I saw an episode with them. Same with Geodude. When I first started watching the show and Brock would send his out, I couldn't believe it looked that nice compared to the game. Growlithe just looked like they were sportin' mohawks or something... or seemed like huge fans of Sonic the Hedgehog.
One's that did look cool were Blastoise (I didn't like how Wartortle looked, though...), Charizard, Bulbasaur, Mewtwo, Mew (except for the Green one I just saw... what the hell?), Lickitung, Golem... what was up with Graveler?
Thank the Force they look so much better now.
