              They're 2.5D though. Pokemon actually fully transitioned to 3D as of XY.

        gta and red dead redemption are one of the most successful gamers ever and they're thriving with 3d
        your point is shit, 3D isnt a mistake, the real mistake is hiring very incompetent devs to make the 3D model

            Just needs better color balancing I'd say. Pokemon should be as saturated as their environment.

      The reason those sprites are so vivid is because the GBA and OG DS had washed out colors. The DS Lite and 3DS fixed those issues and therefore has no more need for oversaturation.

        those are heartgold sprites

        the ds lite was out by the time that game was made so "washed out colors" that werent even a problem any more by the time of the og fat ds, are irrelevant

          Even the newer games were still made with the original fat DS in mind.

      I made them ages ago and posted them here when everyone was pointing out how all the pokemon in the games then seemed really washed out. It was supposed to mimic the Ken Sugimori watercolor key art, but it just looked bad when the rest of the game didn't also follow a washed out watercolor style.

      these are so egregious it's gross, like they were left in the dryer for an extra week.

      I made these back in 2017 when all we had were XY/SM, and it was way more dire. While I'm never going to touch the newer games, it seems like GFs been going back and re-saturating them for their newer titles.

    my guess on why they toned down the saturation is probably related to epilepsy laws in japan or some shit

    • 4 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      The <= Gen 3 sprites were first and foremost for the transflective displays in the Game Boy range. The brightness and saturation were jacked up cause under sunlight they'd look like the art.

      The epilepsy thing is fake.

        Yeah, this. The sprites look very different on a LCD or LED screen compared to the non-backlit screens. Although I do think that some 3D models are a bit too pale or have weird colors in general, like Bulbasaur (not blue enough) or Qwilfish (weirdly green)
