Pokémon Red, Green & Blue sprite differences
#1
The Pokémon sprites were changed in Japan for their special edition of the game, Pokémon Blue. Originally, Pokémon Red and Green had different sprites to those of the English release. These new sprites were used in the international release of the game. It's widely agreed that the revised version in Pokémon Red & Blue are far superior to those in Pokémon Green, where a lot of proportions were out of place.

These two links will show you all of the Pokémons graphics from both versions:

On our friend's settee, she told me that she really liked me
And I said, "Cool... the feeling's mutual"
We played old 45's, and said it's like the soundtrack to our lives
And she said, "True, it's not unusual" - then privately we danced
We couldn't seem to keep our balance... A drunken haze had come upon us

We sank down to the floor, and we sang a song that I can't sing anymore
And then we kissed, and fell unconscious...
I woke up the next day, all alone but for a headache
I stumbled out to find the bathroom...
But all I found was her, wrapped around another lover
No longer then is he our mutual friend

Hold on a second there.

The sprites were changed before translation.

There are multiple versions of Pokemon.

v1.0: Red & Green (Japan only, gray cartridges. Ugly sprites.)
v1.1: Blue (Japan only, limited edition, new engine, new sprites, etc.)
v1.2: Red & Blue (International release. Uses Blue Version Japan as its base engine, and not v1.0.)
v1.3: Yellow Version (More updates, new sprites, etc)

The sprites were changed for the Japanese blue version before the translated versions even existed.

(Remember the Unit 731 thread on tSR? We had to research it, ahahah)

You think Mew is bad, look at that Ekans and Wigglytuff.

Those are some of my favorites.

I'm going to be honest, I kind of liked some of the "ugly" sprites.
