Slight Disadvantage [ IMAGE ]

I’ve seen the original version of this image numerous times on the internet, but two things have always bothered me about it. One, the pokéballs are misaligned. And two, it’s blurry as hell. So I decided to create a new version of it that fixed these issue. Let’s just say I have a major case of OCD when it comes to sprite images.

    Thank you for this! The original is a hot mess compared to this fine example of time and attention paid to pixels.

    You know what I never noticed about the Prof. Oak sprite before? His mouth seems to be DRIPPING BLOOD.

    • Sloshy

      Hello, I’m Prof. Oak. I want to play a game…

    I’m not certain about the trainer’s party. Is the first pokemon fainted or does he only have 5? If only 5 wouldn’t the empty ball be at the end of the list? If fainted there would be an X over the pokeball sprite. /pokemon OCD

      Good call. I corrected this.

  • Xekred

    This one is better than the original EXCEPT for one fact. The original seemed to have Oak with 152 pokéballs (probably in reference to there being the original 150 Pokémon plus Mew and MissingNo) and this one has (if I counted right) 114 pokéballs. Other than that though, great job.

    • Steve Napierski

      If we’re going to do this, lets do it right. I updated it and he now has 152 pokéballs. Thanks for the heads up.

  • JoshMiller

    Not that it matters but the original looks like it has 252 balls which I believe was the G/S number.

    • Xekred

      Well, when I counted I saw the first 7 rows had 20 pokéballs (so 7 x 20 = 140) and then the bottom row had 12 pokéballs. So 140 + 12 = 152.

    Step outta the way, boys.

    I’ve got this handled.

  • PrinceJonathan

    Oak be tripping balls!

    And shouldn’t it say “battle!” instead of “fight!”, I can’t remember it’s been ages since I played Pokemon.
