I made This animation a few months ago for a few reasons:
- To see how it would look in an actual 'Battle Scenario'
- To show off my Project at it's 'best'
- I'm a big Pokefreak

I have over 150 sheets made(including Trainers)

Just a few things to keep in mind while  looking at this:
- The animated Background & Text Boxes were rushed as a last minute thing, so these aren't the 'Final Version' of those
- It came out faster than I wanted it to
- I'll never make another animation this long (250+ frames) using the programs I have now (Microsoft GIF Animator)
- This is really just a Test to see if my Project was worth continuing
- This would work like Pokemon D/P/Pl on the DS, which uses the bottom screen to choose attacks
- This was an actual Battle I did on my Fire Red Game(Criticals and all)

The Project's just for fun, and to help me get better at animating.

Edit: Forgot to mention that I made all of the sprites from scratch(with the exception of the colors, which I got from the official sprites to mimic the style)

hahahaha is funny

@ Karzahnii: No, none of them are ripped, they're all Custom by me, with the exception of the colors which I got from D/P/Pl's palette

@ Crab2selout.png: Yeah, the 'camera' kind of sucks for this animation, but this animation is really just a test, so if/when I decide to work out all of the kinks in this animation, that will be fixed(either by panning slower, or having it be almost random, like in Battle Revolution)

Thanks for the comments guys!

This is totally awesome, I wish the official pokemon games looked like this.

The one thing I don't like about this is teh camera panning back and forth so much. It kinda makes me nauseous because of how quickly it has to move.  As soon as the first pokemon are thrown into the ring for the first time, I think it'd be better if pokemon recalls and substitute were handled only by the text messages with a small hint of hte recall animation. And that way the camera was kept focused on the ring area.

Karzahnii (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/16/2009 13:56

 Nice animations, but are some of these ripped? Pokemon should be more like this, anyways.

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 3/16/2009 04:28

fun stuff, although vey quick and attacks are weak.  there's no harm in pulling out the timing to a more comfortable/dynamic sequence, although it is a bit more work.

Try using a program likr GIF movie gear or even Flash and putting each sequence together separately first, so that they each get the attention they deserve rather that being such a quick shot.

Alright, it's back up! I remade Onix just for this


...There's some minor differences with the how I forgot to add the crowd on Brock's side back in when Onix is Sent out, but it's not too big of a deal since...well, those Crowd sprites aren't be the final version, and right now, I'm focusing more on the Pokemon & Trainers, rather than the Backgrounds & Effects

Joshr_691 (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 2/13/2009 12:49
Right...I may not agree, but I understand

I'll remake Onix, and put the new one in the animation

...And just for the record, I did make it from scratch, and I did state that I followed the D/P's Line-art for the head and first two sections...

Joshr_691, the similarities between your sprites and the official sprites are too close for comfort. You are not helping yourself by copying work by other people, even if you edit them slightly in the process. This is a great piece, but i cannot let this stay in the gallery until you work out the rips.

Even if you made them from 'scratch', you MUST admit you copied large areas of the original pieces.
Do not take offense from me for this, take offense from yourself from pretending they are your own creations. You are not kidding anyone other than yourself.

Ha, ha, ha... nice idea xD! fav xD

KwIjL (Level 5 Captain) @ 2/13/2009 00:20
nice animation there :)

Antiboton (Level 8 Odds and Ends) @ 2/12/2009 22:32
Surely some of them are ripped but I haven't seen Broock in pokemon games so there must be some original art. Mmmm, I think is a hard work for a usles goal ^_^ but is ok.

Joshr_691 (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 2/12/2009 19:10
@ HMC: They're all Custom, and I already stated that I followed some of the D/P Onix Sprite's line-art for parts of the head, and the first two 'Rocks' of his body, but those parts are still different from the Official sprite. If you want a closer look, here's the Sheet I made:

@ Metaru: Yeah, the timing sucks for most of this animation, I'm going to try to fix that eventually

@ Shawn: I was thinking of something similar to that, it would only deal with Gym Leader and Elite 4 Battles, but it wouldn't affect the battles much, or at all, just a neat little feature

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Flat foot (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/12/2009 18:46
alright i just thought that it looked very similar. good work tho

HMC (Level 7 General Manager) @ 2/12/2009 17:55
The Onix sprite, and possibly others, are ripped from the games :\

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 2/12/2009 17:45
also, you could adjust a bit the timming of each animation. put some more pauses here and there, and it would look way more lively and smooth.

Shawn (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 2/12/2009 17:09
I think you should make use of the audience characters. Similar to in Paper Mario 2(I never played the other ones and only a bit of this one). Make it so like, the better you do in battles and the more you win, the more fans you get and the they increase your battle stats or something, idk. It's YOUR game!

Very nice though!

RPGlaubr (Level 3 Stalker) @ 2/12/2009 16:58
Awesome. If the pokemons didn't die in the first attack, it would be perfect. But man, very good. 5/5 Fav'ed.

Nomade (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 2/12/2009 16:49
Hope GameFreak sees this. It would be the best of pokémon games ever. The battles are much better like this

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 2/12/2009 16:40
Christ!! That's a lot of work! Some nice stuff you got going there. The little blue creature galloping towards that rock creature type thing is pretty cute.

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 2/12/2009 15:56
It looks great overall. The intro graphics look a bit off though, and I would have added some shadows under the characters.

Joshr_691 (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 2/12/2009 15:42
I guess I should've said that I made from scratch

@ TMH: No, I made him from scratch, Although I did look at the sprite as a reference for the head, and the bigger body sections, and followed part of the line-art for the head & those first two sections...

Sig~ (Level 6 Hitman) @ 2/12/2009 15:28
Oh is really great xD

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 2/12/2009 15:20
Wonderful animation work. However is everything drawn by you, or are the pokemon and their animations edits of the originals? That can make quite a difference for if this can be included in the gallery :/

TMH (Level 2 Dealer) @ 2/12/2009 15:02
did you steal the onix from diamond?
