In this thread, we'll be creating BW-styled sprites for all the Generation 8 Pokemon, which will be used in Pokemon Showdown should players choose the BW Sprite option. These sprites are also free for use as long as the spriter or the project itself is credited.

All applications are closed now, but I will let you guys know if ever we need more animators in the future. Sprites from non-approved users will be deleted.

Here is a spreadsheet of the finished sprites.
Here is a download link for all currently finished sprites.
The file sizes of the sprites have been reduced in the download.
For GBA-sized sprites with the same style, check the Gen VII+ DS-Style Sprite Project.

For the sake of transparency, these sprites are free for non-profit use.

applications for spriters are now open, although i suggest waiting for the next batch of Pokemon to be revealed so that you guys have something to work with for the application

anyway here are the starters for gen 8:

here's the other legendary
zacian.png

since Zacian was shown holding its sword in a very specific direction, i decided to go with this pose. anyway, some official Pokemon sprites like Entei did the same thing. however i have prepared an alternate Zacian sprite if ever, in the future, it is shown to alternate the way it holds its sword

the trailer also showed Zacian and Zamazenta using a sort of "phase form". they seem similar to Solgaleo's radiant sun and Lunala's full moon phases. i'll be making sprites for them even tho we aren't sure yet if these affect their stats or are just for show

update! here's drednaw

also,
zacian_2.png
889_3.png
these are the special formes/phases shown in the trailer. didn't add the glow anymore because it would look weird as a sprite and i don't wanna unnecessarily break the colour limit. if any clearer artwork is ever released for these formes, i might replace these sprites. but this is it for now

should Gossifleur's flower hat on the back sprite be tilted more to match the front
thanks for the feedback. Gossifleur's back has now been updated. i also removed an extra finger on Impidimp and made new sprites for the starters. everything on the spreadsheet is now up to date

Rolycoly has already been completed as a sprite, neither of those you shown are sprites, and the animation is just a static image moving in a pattern. I suggest you check out previous entries to get a feel on what spriting and animating such is.
thank you for replying to him Kalalokki. i just want to reiterate to anyone who wants to post stuff to read the first post about applying to be a spriter/animator. if you're gonna apply then you have to actually know what a sprite is and what an animation for a sprite looks like. and obviously don't post if i haven't approved you as a contributor

anyway here's an update:

Drednaw animation by PumpkinPastel who's also working on the Alcremie and Giga Alcremie sprites

update! sprites for Gigamax Alcremie and Drednaw. Giga Alcremie by PumpkinPastel, he's still revising regular Alcremie
alcremie_2.png
drednaw_2.png
i decided that following the poses of the official art for these gigamax forms will help give the sprites a larger and more imposing stance. it makes it feel like you're looking up at the pokemon sprites rather than directly at them

anyway, the next update will prolly be backsprites for the legendaries and the gigamax sprite for Corviknight
spreadsheet has been updated as wewll
