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?

this is a very good impact on my favorite rival who constantly torments me and is always appearing right when im looking to battle . i say this is a very good perspective on the hoen region as a particular fan of this bicycle path i say the design is flawless and is a pure work of art the lines are ifinite and the pokemon are amazing in deatail i n e v e r y w a y a n d c o u l d n o t b e b e t t e r thats my opinion

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!
SirAquakip Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Awww well thank you so much <3

lol are you a mind reader ? I tried so many time to sneak past may but somehow the game always know to turn right at me

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.
mclaughlinm1 Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2013
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.

Oh My Gee. I thought this one is real and I'd like to know what PC is this one! I love this!!
Bentheechidna Featured By Owner May 11, 2013
I wish you'd actually be remaking this into a game.
iamK9 Featured By Owner May 11, 2013
if this was the real game, I WOULD DEFINITELY BUY THIS.

Would the water be still or animated?

I would pay for a game like this. But I know copyright is gonna screw you from making money from something like this.

Are you telling me this isn't a real hack? Somebody from Pokecommunity should use these graphics and sprite art to make one. :((
Gen III is the best.
Forerunner-Tulia Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
hehe! SO awesome! And lol for my game, it was basically the opposite, I was "May" with a Blaziken (Combusken at this point, and i began using a certain nickname for my Blazikens after my first time playing -when i didn't really realize that my then torchic was a male....and named HIM Tulia xD), and obviously Brendan had Swampert....

But i love it! You did such a good job, it seems like they could remake the RSE series (my fave btw) with these kinds of pixels! :D

As you've all probably witnessed, Pokemon are abandoning the beautiful, classing sprite graphics for... mediocre 3D! I am devastated, have you any idea how thrilled I would have been to hear that they are developing a game with these graphics? I am saddened by the change they are making. They NEED to implement these sexy graphics :(

Just some critique though - I love the shadows, you draw sprite shadows exactly like me but in my opinion, they would look better if they feathered with 25% black. It would give it more of a smooth appearance. Just a thought honey. ;)

omg they need to make pokemon with those graphics O_o

Oh god, this is awesome
TriddKing Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012   General Artist
This battle; dear GOD, this battle. When I was littler, I did everything in my power to try and walk around May because my Pokemon were never a high-enough level. Of course I would fail, and that is what you captured really well in this screenshot. You are awesome.
Also; saw this (and all the other screenshots) posted on Memebase. Just thought you ought to know!
Epic-ErikaPhobia Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012  Student General Artist
I have to admit... This battle always got on my nerves >.<
At this time i usually trying to make sure All my Pokemon are equally leveled them Boom! i have to fight... and I loose. T^T

tachii Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2012  Student General Artist
someone posted a few of these on tumblr, and now everyone thinks it's an actual RSE remake! but a lot people seemed to ignore that the person who posted this sourced back to you.

your screenshots are verrrry well made. i love it! it's so nostalgic. each of your screenshots have so much detail~~

If you are making this a real game you should make it where instead of running into grass to find wild pokemon they are like walking around and are randomly generated after a battle and you have to run into them in order to battle them.

Now I SO WISH the games could be like this!! :meow: :la:

Nice job on this! However, the character sprites look more like something you'd see in the anime or manga.

i kept using mudshot. wow i was an idiot!
SirAquakip Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Haha. Well I guess Mudshot could have worked. Idk. I wasn't really big on strategy back then; just spammed offensive moves until the Pokemon fainted! :dummy:

ground on grass?
King-Anne Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
You should send these to nintendo haha there has to be a pokemon graphic revolution, and I personally think your style would be the best way to do so!
CasBr Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Why nintendo just dont make the games of Pokémon like you? T-T Come on, the pokémons really NEED to be IN the PokéBall's?
naagza Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2012
They probably make limitations like that to save on space used so that they can add more content within the game...just saying
jedijoren Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2012   Digital Artist
OMG. That's just... amazing.
