    The only shiny I got myself was from hatching about 200 riolu eggs.

    As of now, I'm playing through a new Soul Silver file, and I just recently started Blue on my old Game Boy Pocket for nostalgia's sake. I have no idea how I dealt with that screen, haha.

    I tried to make the smoke at the bottom have some propulsion to make it look like it's hovering but it looks alright like that. Could use an outline like the Torkoal sprite though
    Someone else also said to make the outline black too, but from looking at Pokemon sprites closely that would end up making it look out of place if overused

    Thanks though.
    I did some tweaks in paint to just illustrate my points.
    Please don't at all take this as an insult your pixel art is amazing but I just want to show you what I meant with gamefreaks style. Your pixel art is great and some of your detail rocks, but gamefreak love solid outlines, even if it's not pure black they have outlines, they also tend to define detail really clearly.



    Basically I solidified the outlines and redid the furnace "grate" detail a bit so it's clearer, I'm not saying mine is better (especially since I worked off your amazing art) but I feel it conforms to the pokemon sprite artstyle better.

    Overall my main things to get the art style that they use in their sprites is:

    1 pixel solid outline.
    Sharp details (important/iconic detail shouldn't be dithered really, try and keep it sharp so it sticks out to the viewer)
    Single pixel detail shouldn't be used, it looks great on sprites if you're using it, but on pokemon sprites it's seldom seen (by single pixel I mean a significantly darker/lighter pixel on it's own, try to make areas fairly solid)
    Gradients are rarely used, I didn't change it much but on the torvolutions legs/neck it would probably be 2 maybe 3 colors total and it'd mainly be two chunks of color (normal skin, and skin in shadow)
    Dithering (while an important pixel art technique that you're awesome at) is rare, often not seen at all.

    But seriously I fucking love dat art :D

    Maybe it's just his HUGE eyebrows.

    Not taking any of this seriously, I just posted this WIP from one of my threads ages ago haha.

    But yeah man, I can see what you mean in your points. Maybe I'll get around to having it animate sometime.

    you just don't do that
    There's plenty of shinies out there. They find more every day. But this ticket— There are only five of them in the whole world, and that's all there's ever going to be. Only a dummy would give this up for something as common as shinies. Are you a dummy?

    Nintendo has a little tie-up that links Pokémon Black and White with Pokémon + Nobunaga’s Ambition. Before the crossover game comes out, you’ll be able to download Nobunaga’s shiny Rayquaza via Nintendo Wi-Fi.

    If you have a Japanese version of Pokémon Black and White you can download Nobunaga between March 17 and April 16. Nintendo has not announced a similar promotion for North America or Europe at this time. Pokémon + Nobunaga’s Ambition comes out on March 17.

    No love for us. Wait Pokemon/Nobunaga is coming out in 5 days? sweet

    I wonder if anybody has taken the time to watch every episode, counted the days that passed in each one, and figured out Ash's rough age estimate yet.

    Either Pokesav to edit them or sites like Pokecheck or Pokestation to transfer them to your game. Sites like that are great for backuping pokemon in case you're gonna reset your game. The bad thing is that Pokecheck attaches a Premier Ribbon to your pokes (Pokestation doesn't alter anything, but the site doesn't work right now)
