I am thoroughly convinced that there will never be a better time to post this.
So this is a project I started around late 2009, just for fun, to sprite all of the Generation 3 Pokemon in a 2-D, action fighting game sort of style. I wanted to see if I could make them without internal outlines and see if I could still retain the unique Pokemon style that everyone loves. Why Generation 3? Because it's my favorite gen, for some reason.
I only reached 32 (out of 150-something) before College started piling on the work in the middle of 2010, and I haven't touched them until now. I gave them some slight touching up and here they are, in chronological order of creation. Now that school is loosening its icy grip on my free time, I think that I'd probably like to continue making these.
For anyone who wants to improve their pixeling skills, I would definitely recommend trying to sprite all of the pokemon from a given generation as an exercise. I'm not too good at pixeling, unlike like some of the pixelmaniacs here, but I definitely improved through doing this. You can see somewhere around Makuhita that I really start to catch on.
I did use the official pallates when making them to circumvent my inability to use colors properly, so in that sense they're technically not my own. If this is an illegal maneuver then I will delete this from my gallery with all due haste and never mention it again.
I'm sorry about all the words, but this was a big undertaking for me and I'm excited about sharing it with you. I've been kind of nervous about whether or not to submit this, but I saw the developing opportunity and it was too good to pass up. I'm not very good, but I put my all into these, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did making them.
