 thanky :)

rivia (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/23/2011 10:29

nice work

BlakMetl (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/22/2011 11:59

yeah thx,  i was not sure if i should add them cuz they are very old, and don't like them that much, i have still more rb's

maybe i add them too :)

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 3/22/2011 11:34

You added another column. Good stuff.

Fingerfoods (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 3/21/2011 07:13

I've bitched about the new Pokemon designs quite a bit, but now that I see this I realize that I really only miss the art style (deformed, feral, muted colors). Someone needs to make a hack of Red version with these sprites ASAP.

BlakMetl (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/20/2011 21:57

thank you for the nice comments people :)

@ Dusty

yeah it's a project between me and some other people from  not all of those sprites are made by me, we are about 7 people :)

but the sprites i've posted here are all made by me ( i think it's varying in quality cuz some of them are very old ans some other (like salamence, barujina are new)

i hope you guys can read this, my english is da crap :/

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 3/20/2011 19:25

a lot of those seem to be of varying quality and look like they could have been pixeled by different people. the imgur image could be a collaboration of people spriting gen 3-5 pokemon, and this could be this person's set. just an idea, idk.

if these are yours, blak, they look nice. keep it up 

Dusty (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 3/20/2011 19:23

I saw this earlier today on imgur galleries, and it's ALL of the pokemon:

Did you also make all of these because I also see all of the ones you posted in there. If so, why do you only post a few here?

Kiwi (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 3/20/2011 12:34

 Oh my holy god of pokémon this is awesome! You caught the feeling so well!

King of Games (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/20/2011 02:12

Oh ok, playing black/white now, havent seen that one yet. Also if you guys like this, someone else did one for Arceus, fits right in:

The thing I always liked about the red/blue sprites was that they needed to use a lot of foreshortening and strange perspectives to squeeze those fools into the box they had.

BlakMetl (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/18/2011 06:20

thanks a lot guys :)

Mallonee (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 3/18/2011 00:12

Oh my god this is incredible. Not only do I love how they were done, but this is a brilliant idea. Excellent work

r1k (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/17/2011 20:49

good job with these.  Red/Blue style was always my favorite because of the way the pokemon would be destorted to fit within the box.

BlakMetl (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/17/2011 18:37

thx a lot guys :)

@King of Games


that's barujina, a new pokemon from the black/white editions

Sambo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/17/2011 11:43

Copied the style perfectly!

Exxo (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 3/17/2011 01:58

Omg, I love you! This nostalgia <3

Tarenken (Level 3 Stalker) @ 3/16/2011 19:07

good sprites best bibarel. :D


King of Games: that's most likely because it's a 5th gen Pokemon, lol

King of Games (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/16/2011 17:05

These are great! Only poke I don't recognize is 2nd from left on the top row.

BlakMetl (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/16/2011 16:06

thanks a lot people for the nice comments ! :)


i don't think i used to less, compare this to the orignal here, they don't have much dithering :)

and i used enought space, max size is 56x56  80% of this sprites here are maxed out ;)

and telling me i "failed" sounds a little bit hmm... uncool


Cilein (Level 5 Irish Elk) @ 3/16/2011 15:07

That's an interesting idea! I thought of revamping old sprites to fixt them up, but going for that style is a challenge, well pulled off and done!

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 3/16/2011 14:57

not bad, but you didnt use enough dithering :)

aswell, most pokemon in r/g/b/y use alot of thats where you failed too :3

MCSuire (Level 1 Intern) @ 3/16/2011 14:13

Very nice. It actually looks like it should be on GBC...

KittenMaster (Level 4 Deputy) @ 3/16/2011 13:13

You  nailed the style perfectly.  I'd love to see more.

AfroMonkey (Level 2 Dealer) @ 3/16/2011 12:09

OMG! I'm loving the Bibarel to bits. Keep up the good work.

Chrispy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 3/16/2011 11:56

This is amazing, I've never seen someone mimic the red/blue style so flawlessly. Great job.

BlakMetl (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/16/2011 11:39

thanx =)

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 3/16/2011 11:30

I'm not into Pokemon. But these really do rocketh thyne socketh! Nice work indeed.

epix (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/16/2011 11:22

These are great.

BlakMetl (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/16/2011 10:56


i take that as a compliment, thanky !! ^^ 

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 3/16/2011 10:49

I came.    

BlakMetl (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/16/2011 10:43

thanks a lot !

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 3/16/2011 10:36

really solid looking sprites, they take advantage of the canvas size, captures r/b style well.

BlakMetl (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/16/2011 07:54

thank you so much ! :)

t3nshi (Level 5 Soldier) @ 3/16/2011 07:49

this is just too awesome O___O I especially like groudon and honchcrow, they're so pokemon blue-styled, with the deformations and stuff! keep it up!
