The Ditto is by far the best revamp there. The worst would be Grimer (even though they are its colours)

Not sure why, but Flareon, Dewgong, Omanyte and Electrode disturb me..maybe its the way they are shaded (not your fault, its GameFreaks! LoL)

Devamps 2 are better than the first lot.

Devamps usually only contain 2 outline colours; their darkest colour and black. Create the Mew and Geodude with this technique and I'll judge that...{I might be wrong though...}

Try not to just recolor the old sprites, because many use that pillow shading or whatever it's called almost everywhere, and when you attempt to revamp them they look crappy. When you see a lot of places with alternating pixels between a light and dark color try to make one dominant to make it look better. Don't get me wrong though pillow shading is cool just don't use it everywhere.

IT SUCKS!!! No really the diglett is great! real good. the only problem is the dirt and rocks on the ground around it. i just don't like all that checkerboard style pixelation. but thats just me. whenever i see a lot of checkered pixels i usually edit it. i leave checkerboard to a minimum.

I liked the Diglett gold revamp. It looks very cute.

The devamps are fairly good. The revamps need a lot of work. They are basically recolors. Refer to the revamping tutorial for help on shading them the right way.
