Is it strange to want to replay first gen, but not the remakes?

I kinda feel like starting a new playthrough of red and blue, but when I think of replaying the gba versions, I have no desire to as if they were different games altogether. I think it's primarily that I find third gen's sprites to be the most unpleasing to my eyes, while I love the look of classic rpgs.

I mean, opinions and everything, but you find gen 3's sprites to be unpleasing and not gen 1? Alright.

Well, seeing Brock without a shirt is probably worth going through all of Gen I over Gen III.

He is actually wearing a shirt. It's just white.

I'm thinking my R/B sprite recolors might be somewhat relevant to this topic.

Those are awesome!

I still don't understand why the Gen I sprites looked so weird though...

My guess is that they hadn't worked out the final designs for all of them just yet. Glad you like them, though! I personally like how the Slowbro, Pidgeot, Grimer, and Haunter sprites came out.

I always thought Wigglytuff looked really funny. Your recolor does the original justice.
