Hoenn - Route 110 by SirAquakip Hoenn - Route 110 by SirAquakip
A lot of people seemed to enjoy the previous screenshot, so that got me wondering about how I could do more. Then I decided to start a project on it. I'll be recreating many Hoenn moments in this new style.

This particular moment is on Route 110, where you run into May on the underpass of Cycling Road.

I just keep falling into more love with this style. <3

Please do not steal anything in here. It is all custom and 100% scratch. I made everything here. Do not ask me if you can use them. They are NOT public.

EDIT: I updated the water with the new tiles I made for them. And I updated Brendan's overworld and made Grovyle's a little skinnier. I'll update May when I get to her. xD

I commend Mark for this stunning display of original, unique Pokémon sprite graphics. Witnessing this fabulous art invokes almost a nostalgic emotion. A feeling that these graphics will probably never be, leaves me feeling dissatisfied with the Pokémon video games as I would truly desire to have these beautiful graphics implemented into the official Pokémon video games.

The clean, almost simplistic style (while not as truly CLEAN as I love), is incredibly appealing to the eye and would make a game this SEXY, thoroughly enjoyable to play and appreciate.

Tip - Although I love the shadows of the characters and Pokémon, in my opinion, since the shadows are 50% black, I believe it should feather out with a 1 pixel thick 25% black. This would give it a smoother and less jagged appearance. Do try it out and if you like the results, get back to me!
What do you think?

How did you make this and everything else SO DAMN STUNNING! The graphics explode right in front of your face! WHY CAN'T NINTENDO USE BETTER GRAPHICS!? Honestly, fan-artists like you do a better job. Clean, slick gradients and yet very pixel-precise; good job man!

This was one of the most difficult battles I've ever done. If I went back now, it would probably be easy since I know so much more about Pokemon, but that would ruin the feeling.

Also, if this was released as a game, I would buy a 3DS just to play it.
when playing this game i chose may for the character. i remember hating this part because my rival's groyvle would just use absorb over and over again, which basically took out my team time and time again.
