maybe. Idk, I think that your sprite was perfect, utterly perfect, and its great you won that poll. I was trying to be too realistic with my sprite and that would have weighed me down alot in the polls.
the reason people arent commenting on mine is because of the obvious volcarona similarities, which honestly werent intended. Right now, yours has to be one of my favorites, ill definitly be rooting for you to win this bro! Go out there and kick some ass!
