    In XY we can still meet almost any pokemon from previous generations at least in the Battle Maison, except for only the cover/event legendaries.
    Some of the new models do overthrew my previous impression of the pokemon completely. Rotom formes now finally have the correct size, and on top of that the high frequency vibration fits its flavor much better than the derpy jiggling in BW.
    Eelektross gets another mention for the fluid movement, and for being actually levitating.

    I haven't seen many old mons, but I liked Skarmory and Scyther.

    I have changed every instance of sprite to model because sprite is synonymous with pixel art.

    Continue on.

    Also Sneasel and the claws crossed is clearly the best who can say otherwise?

    Actually, my favorite old pokemon model has to be Zigzagoon.

    Seriously. Have you seen its attack animation? The way it zigzags... SO CUTE.

    Also Snorlax looks like he finally got up :P (See previous gen's sprites for snorlax to understand :P)

    I wouldn't call it a favorite, but I feel compelled to mention Spinda's ridiculously unstable stagger. And Stunfisk's utter flatness.

    Infernape. The animation stance alone is badass, and I don't even like Infernape.

    Tropius looks great. I always wanted to see one flying. The way the leaves ripple as if in wind is really fantastic.

    Also I agree with Spinda and Rotom. Rotom's so tiny! <3

    Gardevoir looks great. Much better than the Colosseum/XD models.

    I loved the skaromy and ferrothorn models. Skaromy looks way more badass and looks like a jet and ferrothorn actually sticking in the ground instead of floating makes more sense.

    Can't wait for Pokebank so I can transfer my Ev, Iv, shinies over though thier sprites will be so cool

    Hitmontop actually makes sense now. Before he was just upside down, but now he's doing an actual capoeira move like his Japanese name suggests he should.

    I haven't seen any new models that have disappointed. Mr. Mime is my favorite and he looks / moves better than ever now.

    The entire Ralts line is pretty darn good. It really emphasizes how elegant they are.

    As for ones I do not like, Eelektross just looks dumb. I get that it is a floating electric eel, but in BW it looked rather mean and beefy. Now it just looks like a tapeworm.

    I have to say that while Mawile's 3D model looks great, I was very disappointed to find out that its face is turned completely away from you during battle. One of the things that made Mawile appealing to me in previous generations was that it was one of the very few pokemon (along with Girafarig's tail, and that might be it) whose face was turned toward you in its back sprite. Now it's rotated in such a way that only the boring back of its head is visible.

    Mine has to be Grumpig. I've never been a fan, but the way he just waddles back and forth is so funny. I laughed so hard after hitting him with a Fire Blast to the face, when he just marched in place and kept on smiling.

    Suicune has some nice ribbons, but Archeops and Spinda are both pretty funny looking.
