Top Ten Pokémon Sprites In Pokémon CrystalTheDannyMan 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 Ten
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
If you ask me, Umbreon's sprite is the only good one from the Eeveelutions in Pokémon Crystal. Just like the other Eeveelutions, it has the adorableness going for it. Even though, being a Dark-type, it also looks creepy in a way. Or at least intimidating. And that's something I never thought I'd think of any of Eevee's evolutions. This is still a favourite sprite of mine. - 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
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
I was going to place either Ninetails or Arcanine on the list, but I guess Ninetails just won this for me. Arcanine looks quite big an intimidating, but so does Ninetails. What's more, Ninetails also had the majestic look going for it, something that Arcanine just lacked in the second generation. Especially in Pokémon Gold. Just... That Gold sprite of Arcanine... Ugh. - 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!
