    Zarel has given me his full blessing to pull off my idea for sprites in Pokemon Showdown. The plan is that we will replace all of the sprites with original artwork on April First. This is clearly a huge task so I'll need as much help as I can get.

    Here is the google doc I will use to collect sprites, claim and do any mon you wish. Upload your spirtes to something like http://imgur.com/ http://tinypic.com/ or http://imageshack.us/ and help make this happen! Make them as awful as you can, no experience necessary.

    You can post your images here but do please make sure they get in the google doc because otherwise it's very hard to keep track

    Please don't chat about this on #is or some other public channel just put the sprites in the google doc or talk to me privately.
    edit: All PS drivers will also be in on this and contributing.
    Deadline: March 29th

    http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=65162 ?_? The sprites from there are pretty huge though. :d But they are nice and idk if you might want to use them for April Fools, haha. 697 is A LOT of sprites though :O! Also, imo imgur is usually better for uploading >_>

    Do you have any size/dimension restriction etc for this? :O!

    edit: oops sorry didn't see the 96 x 96 part already there xD

    Rules are all on the google doc and it's 96x96. Considering the forms as well it's well over 700 but I figured if I alone made 15 a day I'd be able to do it all myself and I'm sure there will be some who willl love to make a ton of crappy sprites.

    If you want crappy sprites, I can do a handful of really awful ones. Sadly I won't be able to get on-line on April 1st, but I'd love to help with this.

    Can we do this in MS Paint? If so I can see myself whipping out a lot of sprites!

    edit: How is this for Shroomish?

    Also can we reserve mons in this thread or should we do so somewhere on the google doc?

    I think you mean Zubat and that has already been taken care of.

    Reserve on the google doc, it'll be easier to keep track.

    yeah the joke is they are all 'custom' so I'll probably end up not using those
    I know I'm not posting all of mine but I assure everyone mine are all done.

    here's my little collection so far:

    it would be cool if we could gather a lot of different styles, preferably with some experienced spriters making some actually legit sprites.

    I got a few - I hope they are acceptably bad. Backsprites will show up eventually

    This is fun :D

    There are many reasons I don't have an art thread

    Having a blast, even if my 'bad' is a lot worse than the other 'bads' in this thread >.> Also wondering if these can be optional sprites for later use, that'd be too fun.
