I love it. Don't you? I think the only prerequisite is that, it has to be official, and if not, then it has to be good. Let's not ruin it with Misty stroking Gardevoir. Leave that to your filthy minds you scally knaves!
What I'm really after is some quality Sugimori artwork, especially the original art he did for Red/Green/Blue. I can't find that anywhere!
I'll start off with some of my favourites

A long time ago I made the Pokemon Game Appreciation Thread and I have to say. I wholeheartedly agree. Ken Sugimori is unrivaled.

All we need is that diagram which compares the old pokemon trainer to the new one

Andrex has a pretty neat web album of good fanart, I believe.

Some art is really amazing. The one my avatar comes from:



If someone knows of a better quality version of this one, then please!

Going to sound crazy but...I recall seeing a fan art piece of the gold/silver hero versus red in the cave? The kid's eyes was gold and red is looking down at him. Please someone post this in hi res if you can.
This one?


Don't have too many other images but I always really liked this one:

No I agree. Theres this weird rough charm to RBY/GSC stuff that got lost in the GBA generation.
I don't think RSE on looks bad at all, but I do prefer the early art.

Wow, that Charizard in the sky is absolutely amazing. I want to see more of that.

I like the world maps the most. I don't know if it's because it has that "map" look to them or that you can see the actual land marks like bridges and stuff. Every time I see one I want to play the game.

To each his own. I think the early stuff wears it's Toriyama influence on its sleeve - the later stuff is more distinctly its own style. I do like the watercolor look of the early art, though.

I had another good one of red but I forgot where I put it. Along the same vein as the last one but with Espeon instead.

Gotta love the classic Sugimori art.





/vp/ will randomly have retro Sugimori art threads, and let me tell you, they are jam packed with hundreds of amazing art pieces I've never seen before.

Found it:
The original team

Japan really loves their pokemon (and slashing red/blue, not safe for your childhood)

After the Zelda Art thread, I thought this would be the next one I'd start. Oh well, glad someone got to it.

Pokemon has a quality about it that whether it's depicted as super cutesy, epic or somewhere in between, it never really seems out of line. Good idea for a thread.
