Top Ten Pokémon Sprites In Pokémon Crystal

Pokémon Gold and Silver. In terms of sprite art, this is where things got a LOT better. Though, there where still some errors in some of the Pokémon's sprites. That, and there where still some that where a little but rough around the edges. Pokémon Crystal, however, got the sprites spot-on. It changed some of the Pokémon's poses, making them more dynamic, and fixed the colours of all wrongly-coloured Pokémon. Let me present to you, the best sprites Pokémon Crystal has to offer.

The Top TenXW


Gengar's sprite wins this, by a landslide. It looks so dark and menacing, just like Gengar should be. I gotta tell you, the first time I fought Morty in Pokémon Gold, Gengar scared the crud out of me. This is probably still my favourite Gengar sprite in any Pokémon game, and that says something. - TheDannyMan


Snorlax just looks so lovable in Pokémon Crystal! Just look at it, it looks as if it's just waking up from a really nice dream. Had a nice sleep, Snorlax? I hope you did. - TheDannyMan

The colours... The menacing badassery... The proportions and the almost three-dimensional view of it's left claw... This Crystal sprite just screams amazing-ness! It helps that Scizor is an amazing Pokémon, too. - TheDannyMan


Typhlosion just looks ready to kick some tail in Pokémon Crystal. It looks pissed, and it's pose looks menacing and like it's ready to fight! Oh man, how I hated to go up against my friend's Typhlosion in the Pokémon Center Coliseum... ^^' - TheDannyMan


Man, I love Hitmonlee's sprite in Pokémon Crystal. I love the dynamic pose of its kick, and its leg which is bent, and aimed right at your Pokémon's face. Better do something quick, or it will HI JUMP KICK your poor creature into a painful oblivion. - TheDannyMan


The body proportions are really accurate, that's already a lot more than most of the Pokémon in Gold, Silver, and Crystal can say for themselves. But what I liked best about Miltank in generation 2, is the eyes, and just the overal pleasant look Miltank gives you. Fits Miltank to a T. - TheDannyMan

The Contenders

11JigglypuffJigglypuff, known in Japan as Purin, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Okay, so Spinarak really doesn't look all that good or cool in comparison to most of the others on this list. Still, I really like Spinarak's sprite in Pokémon Crystal. The best thing about it is that Spinarak is finally green! The idea in Gold and Silver was that you saw it in the dark, since Spinarak is a nocturnal Pokémon, but that was just silly. I guess Game Freak thought so too, and decided to make this welcome improvement. - TheDannyMan


Okay, first thing's first: Yanma is terrible. That doesn't say anything about how good it looked in the game though. I guess I'm a sucker for insects, but it just looks like it comes at you with it's big eyes, saying "Hi, potential trainer! PLEASE use me! I promise I'll be good! " Poor Yanma. - TheDannyMan


It's just so cute!
