SelenaArmorclaw , WelshWhale28 yeah lotsa people hate spriting with paint but that's the main thing i use for a lot of things tbh. i know how to sprite on other programs, too, but im used to ms paint the most. i got so used to it that i can sprite a pokemon in 15-30 minutes. other types of sprites take a bit longer but most things i sprite dont take longer than an hour on mspaint. im not as fast on other programs cuz i dont practice with them enough

Hey folks some musings for you:

I've been rather busy with life at the moment, and I'll be honest my priority with Smogon/sprites has been very low on the totem pole. I'm not attempting to be some megalomaniac holding power forever, but I am also hesitant to step down without others who have been willing to help with uploading stuff to PS.

I will work on updating the sprites by the end of the month. After that I will try to push uploads every month or so. If anyone has any interest in assisting me with this please shoot me a PM. I've learned after a bit of time that the willingness to do the dirty work is a talent unto itself.
 
For some reason, the current Magearna sprite is really really dark. I changed its colors to be more appropriate to how it appears in game. I've never made a sprite before, so it probably needs touching up.

Hey guys. Quick question. After playing gen 6 and 7, I want to go back and play a romhack of gen 5. But I want to use some of the current Pokemon. I can use the sprites in the thread to swap out with some.lesser used Pokemon to 'add' them to a gen 5 rom, right? I'm totally inexperienced with this kind of stuff but I assume it can be done. Sorry if this is too off topic. This is the thread Google directed me to, so here I am?

Same rules should apply for the 6th gen sprites in the XY thread.

Sorry, I guess I didn't use proper grammar. I didn't mean can I use them like asking for permission, I meant it like is it possible to use these sprites and add them to a romhack.

don't romhacks use gen 3 sized sprites (64x64)? we make gen 5 sized sprites here (96x96). pokemon community has a project where they make sprites for romhacks, lots of them use the sprites i made for hacks actually. those might be what youre looking for

Thanks to the upcoming Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, I think this project needs Lycanroc Dusk Form and the new forms of Solgaleo and Lunala!
ill take care of the lycanroc since I did the midday form before. i made a midnight one as well but for DA

I made the front already before but I forgot to upload it here xD it's on my DA but no back yet. ill work on it tomorrow

axl's supposed to be workin on the solga luna sprites but he seems really busy, so it's understandable. I made my own versions on DA as well. they could be either placeholders or reference (doubt axl will need it lmao)

Hello kaptainkittyboi, welcome to the forum.
There should be an edit but under your post so there's no need for double posting.

To my knowledge Leparagon has called dibs on Dusk Lycanroc. He has also created the fronts for U-Solgaleo and U-Lunala, but I don't know if he is wanting to continue it since he mentioned something about aXl.

Otherwise I hope you get accepted into the project as things have been a bit slow for a while.
 

I noticed there are very few sprites of Kartana and Pheromosa, so I made these so I can try and finish my Pokemon Flashcards. (Updating for Gen 7.)
You guys are free to use these as you like, to alter them as you like. If they need any improvements, feel free to let me know, or you can alter them yourself.
