I love the original Squirtle sprite.

And I will always remember that Metapod has a frowny face and is looking to the right hand side of the screen.

They're not all bad. Some of the RG sprites are even better than the Blue sprites.

RS had some really bad sprites, too. Look at most of the 1st and 2nd gen Pokemon. At least the 1st gen Pokemon were fixed in FRLG.

They do have a certain awkward charm to me. Except abominations like Golbat(which tbh looks pretty funny at least)

I love Clefairy's sprite tough. No idea why, maybe it's the lack of that ugly tone of pink it usually has.

The worst out of the bunch was Mankey back then. I really liked it because of the anime and in Yellow(which my brother got before I got Red) it looked really good. Then I saw it first time in Red and well... it was baffling. I still don't know why they couldn't put more effort in some sprites yet they could in Yellow.

Pokemon yellow had the worst sprites.
That yellow rattata sprite is disgusting.

GEN IV sprites are the best:

Tentacool seems like something Lady Gaga would wear. Pointy Shoulders.

Arms-crossed Tentacruel has a special place in my heart.
