    Default The good, the bad, and the just plain UGLY

    HGSS Sprites. Im sure most of you have seen the new sprites, and, while most look great, others are TERRIBLE. Examples:



    Mewtwo.


    Celebi (tbh, he has never had a good sprite)


    Same with him


    However, there were some good sprites to come out of this. EX:


    Best sprite of his yet.

    Pretty good.




    Why have the sprites gotten worse over the years? idk.
    [/ pointless rant]

    Anyone else agree with me?

    I think it's mostly hit or miss on this kind of thing. Some of them are truly amazing, but others are less than awesome.

    I don't really think that the sprites you posted really were that bad though...
    Mewtwo: looks normal to me
    Celebi: What else can you do with celebi? Make it float upside down? I think the sprite's fine
    Magmar: not that bad either...

    There are some bad ones that I can think of off of the top of my head though (ex. gyrados w/ an ugly closed mouth).

    Ho-oh's gotten a new color shading and a slightly different pose.
    Kabutops looks totally cool!
    Magmar/Celebi you (as Brady said) can't do a heck of a lot with.
    Mewtwo's all right...
    Then again, everyone has their opinions.

    TBH, I think Garydos has his best sprite yet. Very... fierce. Mewtwo...just looks like he's a super skinny model for a jewelry company now, where as in most the other gens., he's looked like the one guy you dont want to meet in a dark alley because you know he can and will pwn you.
    Magmar, looks too...out there...like he's not even playing attention and decided to take up ballet.
    Celebi, ok you've me there, but they could have at least done a jirachi-ish thing.

    To the contrary of your view on Mewtwo, I think it's the best sprite made of that Pokemon. There are some weird sprites, but Pokemon like Dragonite became cooler. IMO they got better in this version.

    I'd agree with that statement.
    Yuck...what's with its mouth? o_O

    *looks through avatars*
    Mr. Mime looks like it got flattened at the circus.
    Smogon mentioned this; Raichu's got some funky shading going on...

    There are some I like, though: Beedrill, Ninetales, Slowpoke, Muk, Kangaskhan, and Magikarp, to name a few.
