What am I on about? I’m talking about the difference between the Red/Blue sprites and the B/W or HG/SS sprites. Take a look at Mankey. Or Pidgey. What do you think?
take a look at golbat's old sprite. Now that's disturbing! Also, if you compare geodude's old sprite to its newer one, I think You will see a HUGE difference!
I don't use "uber" Pokemon,I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection and I sometimes care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are barring unfortunate natures, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature. (Sorry, forgot who started this)
I have claimed Bellsprout: Don't underestimate its power! *sprout tower theme plays*
Scariest award goes to Eggsecutor, he looked like a three headed pedophile or something.
Vuplix looks definitely cuter with the little white patch under her face though and Haunter definitely looked his best in this generation too. He genuinely looks more scary and foreboding in my opinion.
Serebii lurker since 2006.
Actually, Pikachu looks pretty different...
And I wouldn't have recognised Ponyta and Rapidash either!
(Chansey's rather creepy too... O___O)

♥~ I play Pokémon for enjoyment - I don't bother with EVs, I don't battle competitively, and I use my favourites. If any of this offends you, I'm sorry, but it's how I play. ~♥

The creepiest first generation sprites I have found were Venusaur, Golbat, Exeggcutor, and Dragonite.
It's a Forretress, what else needs to be said to spark your curiosity?
I must say the winner here is 1Golbat, 2Gastly, 3Gengar.....
I would take the sprites from newer games over most of the first gen. sprites any day. So many Pokemon look creepy and disturbing in the older games. In the newer games, they look like what they're supposed to look like.
I'm glad I saw the anime and played newer games before playing RB, because otherwise I would've been confused by the designs of some of the Pokemon. Like take Gastly, its RB sprite looks nothing like it does in newer games or in the show!
The strangest/creepiest sprites from this generation are Chansey, Exeggutor, Mew, and Jigglypuff, IMO. *shudders*
~ * * ~
it's humorous to look back at most of them, so many were wretched.
In my opinion, in regards to the original Red/Blue/Yellow games. The sprite that I thought was the most disturbing was the Venusaur sprite when you sent it out into battle, so, when you saw it from behind. I can understand what its supposed to be, but at 1st glance it looks like a pile of green crap covered with pieces of putrid rotting lettuce draping off of it lol.
On the other hand, the new and improved sprites for Venusaur are much much better.

Credit and Thanks for the awesome Sig goes to Darkrai_Shadowforce!
Golbat is the only Pokemon I find really scary. Hmm... I don't remember Venusaur and Exeggutor being very scary looking.
^Team Teehee? Lulz. Anyway, this is my first post in 4 years, hello!
A lot of the old sprites are strange but I love them for that. There's certain ones though like Geodue and Moltres that I've never liked.
Dodrio looks f***ing terrifying. Koffing is weird when you consider that his markings are actually above his face. As pointed out earlier, Gastly looks completely different too. And has nobody mentioned Paras?
Most of the sprites though, I like. Articuno's is epic.
There was something about Flareon's sprite. While I dislike the Eeveeons entirely, there was something about Green's Flareon sprite that looked creepy and sinister. Or maybe I just liked how weird it looks.
I must say, I am 110% against this action, I mean, quoting Wikipedia, '' A world of free knowledge will be lost ''. I say screw SOPA and PIPA, and all who agrees with me, sig this! We all detest the bill and will fight for the freedom of the Internet!
This is Bidoof. Many people loathe it with their lives. If you are of the few people who love this little beaver, put this in your sig. Started by Warrior Scolipede
Probably Mew's Red and Blue Sprite, compared to what it is now.
Speaking of which, Mewtwo's Red and Blue sprite actually looks a lot more better than the newer versions, every generation seems to get mewtwo's sprite worse.
I find that all the sprites look pretty different back then compared to what they are now.
^ Same here, athough I do think some looks weirder than others.
From Red/Green, I think Wigglytuff, Butterfree, Moltres, Dragonite, Seadra and Jolteon looks more weird than the others.
From Red/Blue, Ivysaur, Articuno, Dratini, Golem, Scyther, Rhyhorn and Lickitung takes that place.
From Yellow, Magikarp, Magmar, Hitmonlee, Machoke and Hypno are the strangest IMO.
But my head's down on the pavement, wondering where the years went
All the time I spent, under eyes full of contempt
My mind's still a crutch as I stand at the edge of what's ahead, I'm frozen instead
pikachu's sprite in R/B was really weird. That wins in my opinion.

If games added to our post count, I'd be soooo far ahead of you guys. hehe
After years, I've finally claimed deoxys! Watch your back! hehe...
The real difference with Pikachu's sprite from Red/Blue/Green is that there is no coloration on it's underbelly, and I notice as Pikachu's art form changes in the anime, it changes in the games, because Pikachu today looks nothing like the Pikachu in the first generation games or anime.
I do find Golbat's old sprite pretty creepy actually...and the one where Butterfree is turned upside down, I think that was in Red and Blue, that always struck me as odd.

Maybe I should start writing one of those...
Life is a work of art, you have to paint it colorful!
Hmm. I guess Gastly's old Generation 1 sprites look completely strange compared to its newer sprites. I've noticed that Gastly looks like a ball of gas in its older sprites. It doesn't even have the orb in the center like in some of the other sprites. That isn't too strange, but I still think it's interesting. Koffing's Red/Blue sprite was a little off as well, compared to its other sprites. The old Red/Green Mew sprite looks extremely strange. I still haven't been able to look at it without flinching. Compare that old sprite with the new Mew sprites, and the difference is staggering.
Moltres looked pretty wierd compared to its newer ones.
Currently Looking For SHINY Espeon and Umbreon. PM IF YOU HAVE Either
WIGGLYTUFF. My GOSH Wigglytuff.
No, scratch that. JYNX. And Mr. Mime in Blue. Why has no one mentioned them yet? Come on, those two are the creepiest of the creeps, and you can't deny it. Especially with the pedophile Mr. Mime in Blue. It and Hypno probably butted heads back in the day over kids.
i think geodude looks COMPLETELY different! along with gastley, green's eevee and articuno. but i agree.... exeggutor is the freakest ever.
Check out my portfolio at http://rayfoster.tk/, it's super cool.
It's got loads of interesting compositions and programming works!
Exeggutor's sprite freaked me out as a kid. >.<
Kick butt - eat sandwich. :3
*I have claimed Muk! All stench belongs to me!*
I have finally encountered and caught a shiny Pokémon after 12 years of playing! I caught a shiny Chinchou while Underwater Sootopolis City on the 3rd of June, 2011.
