    Just to assist on this, the newest Japanese trailer shows the backs for Sandygast and Palossand (plus Type:Null and a lot of others)

    Apparently, UB-01 is not considered a Pokémon in-universe, and therefore is not playable. I'm not sure if we even need it for Showdown.

    Oops, nevermind lol.

    So... after viewing and being horrified by both the new English and Japanese trailers, here are my predictions:
    1. The plot involves some sort of alternate dimension and/or humans-fusing-with-Pokémon mechanic never before seen in the series
    2. Some of the antagonists and supporting characters are blood relatives somehow
    3. The Poké Finder is the closest thing we'll ever get to a Pokémon Snap sequel
    Also, Type: Null and UB-01 are the very definition of horror... "something that shouldn't be, but is."

    Thanks, viper. I'll edit Sandygast's back later, then.


    Alongside the new trailers, there's this screenshot of what looks like a humanoid Cutiefly evolution. In case it gets confirmed, I'd like to reserve it.

    Wobblebuns shall be reserved Jangmo-o

    leparagon gets Type Null on reserve, and then emo rat can be taken after : )

    I would appreciate if we reserve one at a time, but telling others what you want to do is also nice!

    Thanks for the back references Japanese Pokemon editors!

    Type: Null front sprite first. i swear it was actually easier to sprite Perfect Zygarde. and the color count of Type: Null is unfathomably painful. couldn't afford any shades for the green front legs and had to use black for the outline of the main body T^T really gonna need feedback on this xD type null.png backsprite coming soon

    also i made Alolan Raticate this morning when my professor couldn't make it to class xD alolan raticate.png backsprite coming soon too

    tbh i sprited Jangmo-o, both front and back xD but exactly the time i finished it, i saw Wobble's message about reserving it. good luck to Wobblebuns though :D

    EDIT: done with Null's backsprite. also made a quick edit to the front sprite cuz i accidentally had one unnecessary color. removed it and used that color slot for the green on its helmet type null.png
    EDIT (again): done with A. Raticate alolan raitcate.png

    oh and Layell i forgot to mention that i made Crabrawler xD but i noticed that you put it on the list already xD thanks for that xD

    So I've been frustrated with this sprite for a while and I'm not liking how it's coming along. If I can't get it to something I like within a week or so, I'll probably drop it :/

    here you go zygarde 10.png

    also Wobblebuns since there's a new trailer with the back view of Solgaleo in full range of motion, I think it'd be great if you used that as reference if you plan on tweaking your backsprite :D

    p.s: noticed some stuff I need to fix on 10%'s backsprite. but i'm out for the night so will update tomorrow :D

    Perhaps I could help.
    I actually reworked the shape of the front sprite a little & added in some elements from the Mudsdale sprite leparagon made:
    Mudsdale.png
    It isn't a lot but I thought it would be of benefit.

    Pikafan2000 's edit seemed like a step in the right direction! i thought i might add mine here so you could maybe use it as reference too aside from the official art, since our sprites have more similar poses as compared to the official art: mudsdale.png notice how the face is slightly slimmer and how the eyes are more rounded out. the mane of my sprite didn't focus too much on the "poofiness" of Mudsdale's hair so don't mind that part; i think it's better that you slightly defined the mane, although i do think it could be rounded out better :)

    dibs on Rockruff's evolution day form xD already made a front sprite
    interested in doing night but not calling it yet in case someone wants to sprite that :)

    Would like to state that I am willing and eager to do a Lugarugan form. Both are equally appealing, so I'll take whichever one the next person doesn't reserve, Kanto-Fossil-Maniac-style.

    Edited Sandygast again, finally. The missing pebble is now present, and hopefully, the silhouettes of the front and back aren't so eerily similar.

    leparagon The new garde dog front is great, but I agree that the back could use a bit of work. Likewise, Type: Null looks awesome, and imo it isn't immediately obvious that you're running up against the colour limit (if the shiny makes it any worse, though, we might have another Xerneas situation to deal with). The back sprite seems rather odd, though. I feel that the "butt" is too high and should drop down slightly, while the tail is connected at a strange angle.


    Since all I have reserved is Oricorio, I'm contemplating doing QC on Stufful and Bewear in lieu of leparagon, as he has a load of other things on his plate. Now that the XY Sprite Project is finished (or rather, I'm finished with the XY Sprite Project huehue), I might just take a break from spriting for the time being.

    I'm going to keep HnD's final Mudsdale sprite, I appreciate all the posts commenting on it. I'll see about addressing any changes at the launch of Sun/Moon.

    Pikafan2000 please see the first post and consider sending me a spriter application : )

    That's cool with me, I'm literally just going to evolve mine based on random chance in the game as I think they're both great designs.

    It seems they are not playable, I've added them there just in case, but at the moment will not include them in the project.

    Looking for some thoughts on this before moving onto N.Lugarugan. Also, realized the A-Slash's backspikes were arranged in a 4-4-4 pattern rather than the 3-5-5 pattern I thought they were, so changes have been made to reflect that.

    Still far from perfect, but better than my last version I think. Main changes are to the mane, but other areas got pixel pushed too. I also kinda just want to say that lep's version has an incorrect head shape, as Mudsdale has a rounded "Roman" nose/snout, whereas lep gave it a very defined dip that just doesn't exist.
