Pokemon Image shows Gengar’s evolution from sprites to 3D models

A Pokemon fan presents every sprite the Ghost-Type Gengar pocket monster has had across all generations of the franchise.

A Pokemon fan has compiled all of Gengar’s game sprites for comparison. As Game Freak’s series progresses, the sprites of the various pocket monsters gain in detail, allowing players to better see their characteristics. As Pokemon sprites continue to evolve, as does the way we view creatures.

Gengar was the original Ghost-Type in pokemon red and blue, and was the final evolution of Gastly. The pocket monster was also a Poison type and could be obtained by trading a Haunter. Gengar is one of the few Pokémon to gain both a Mega Evolution and a Gigantamax form, and has been featured several times in the anime and TCG. One player has compiled all of Gengar’s sprites throughout the series’ various generations, giving players a look at how the creature’s appearance has changed over the years.

A Redditor known as CosmicCoronet collected all of Gengar’s sprites, showcasing the evolution of the Pokemon since 1996. The pocket monster’s appearance was blurry in Gen 1, which changed in Gen 2. As and as the franchise progressed, the creature’s shape became smoother while the spikes on its back would shrink. The Pokemon’s color would also change, going from a deep purple in Gen 2 to a lighter hue in recent generations. The image CosmicCoronet shared helped show how much the pocket monster has changed over the years and how much the sprite work has improved over time.

Many users on Reddit seem to agree that the Gen 2 sprite for the Pokemon Gengar is the best, with many agreeing that the artwork from this era of Pokemon is the best overall. A commenter mentioned that they liked the colors of the more current Gengar character models, but they were too slick. One player joked that the pocket monster started out looking like it was stabbing people, but has since turned into the occasional assault.

Some gamers love the pixel-based sprites that Nintendo’s creatures had in older generations, which led them to remake new Pokemon in the classic. Gold and Silver artistic style. A Reddit user named The_Internet_Goblin took a number of new creatures from Pokemon scarlet and violet and gave them a retro look. The sprites were well done, making it look like the creatures were originally meant to be drawn in that style and not the 3D look they currently have. As the Pokemon franchise continues to grow and develop, players are showing a sense of nostalgia for the older generations they grew up with.

Pokemon scarlet and violet will be released for Nintendo Switch on November 18.
