    Default Sprite comparison for old pokemon

    Just like I did with the trainer, I did a sprite comparison for some old gen pokemon shown. You don't know the jump in colors from R/S/E to D/P until you see them side by side...







    Blown up character sprites

    Holy macarony plant on a stick! Once these games are out and a runnin'I gonna enjoy spriting in that style,

    The style appears to allow sizes greater than 64x64 (Scizzor looks 74x64 that's nice) and extra colours, which makes it easier to make better looking sprites.

    I do wonder how many sprite artists they put onthe pokémon games, considering every pokémon needs a pokédex sprite, icon, back sprite; gender and female sprites (Although one is a recolour and the other a minor modification, I do believe they can be done within minutes.)

    I think new Sciscor's head is too long. It just looks weird to me. Other then that they're awesome! I"m gonna love this game!

    I love the Scizor sprite, it looks so cool. The Wooper sprite doesnt look different at all(except the mouth), but we cant expect every D/P sprite to be as awesome as the Scizor one.

    Meh, not exactly that much of a leap at all. The DS can do better than that.

    In terms of 2d? How much more better is possible? Look at 2d art in other 2d DS games,sprites really aren't that much better

    You're right - but that doesn't mean the sprites couldn't be better. Not a single game has pushed the hardware to it's limits yet.

    But whatever, I'm satisfied with what we've seen so far.

    The male and female thing makes me happy. It's just like lions and moose. Moose are cool.

    Me too, as it gives them more individual aspects (if that's the word), imo.

    I see pokemon have come along way since their Green, Red and Blue ancestors, lol.

    Hey, I got an idea - wait until clearer, non-scan images are revealed then improve your comparison - and add male and female for dp section.

    The Wooper sprite for D/P seems like it doesn't have as good shading, though it may be because it's zoomed in, unlike the Scizor and Butterfree sprites.

    They arent bigger I dont think, its just the scan size.

    I agree, the sprite for wooper isnt done very well, it looks as if the outline is all black and there are only two shades and no lighter blue shade to round out his head. Do you think they might be changing style? it looks like an easier (although kinda clean and cute) style.

    Feel free to add to your sig if you are importing from Japan!

    I think the sprites are better than r/s. I can't place whats different, but they just look so much better.

    The wooper one is a bad example as it didnt physically come from a battle screenshot and was already severely enhanced when placed into the magazine

    Thanks SKECHi for this awsome banner.

    Scizor is solid but the Butterfree one looks outstanding to me. Certainly the best I have seen.

    I think they're a lot better, even from R/S/E/Fr/Lg. The D/P sprites seem to have better blended colors, and more unique shapes. They also don't seem so 2-D to me.

    i honestly think these are just temporary sprites because some really look horrble (example: Manafis sprite is just horrible, munchlaxs eyes are wierd and others) there probably just for a test

    I like the R/S/E wooper a little better, maybe the DP pic is just a little poorer quality?

    Or maybe the quality on the screenshots is low, causing it to look like that?

    These are scans, so the level of quality that we're seeing isn't the best yet.

    Scizor just looks hard. Kudos to the artists.
    I'm also glad to see that Butterfree looks cool now.
    Wooper's sprite is terrible, but who uses it anyway?

    Don't you say not even one bad thing about Woopers.

    I like woopers! But Wooper either looks too fat, too skinny or too...can't describe what the D/P sprite would be...
