Pixel Art Challenge: Pokepalettes


This week, we want you to pick one of the Pokemon palettes from this handy generator. You can create whatever you want with the palette - as long as it isn't Pokemon-related!

Make sure to mention in the description which sprite you got your palette from.

Note: a sprite's darkest colour (often #000000) doesn't appear in the generated list — don't forget about it! (Thanks to Damian for spotting this)

Optional Bonus Challenge: Pick the first palette that's generated when you click the link.

Canvas Size - Max 240 x 240.
Colours - Use all and only the colours from your chosen sprite.
Transparency - No.
Animation - Optional.

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

I actually got a sprite (Koffing) where 2 colors weren't listed, one of the yellows and the darkest color.

I meant that the sprites are from gen five, but come to think of it, yeah, it only randomly generates pokemon from gen 1, even though all gen 1-5 pokemon are present on the website...

I only get gen 1...

They're all generation 5 sprites.

The website is pissing me off.

Pretty much each sprite is from an entirely different generation.

nidoqueen have one very dark color

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 8/17/2015 06:58

oh, that's not ideal :/


Damian (Level 10 Operative) @ 8/17/2015 05:06

Nope, there was a charmander with its darkest colour being a very dark brown, and it wasn't in the pallete. I guess people just need to be aware of it :)

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 8/17/2015 04:51

Good catch. I think that it's #000000 in every case.

Damian (Level 10 Operative) @ 8/17/2015 04:29

None of the pallets I've generated actually have the darkest colour, is this right?

Drazile (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 8/17/2015 01:37

Mmm, got Lapras, with some really nice blue/cream ramps :D
