The Retro Army


Pokemon with old sprites seem all too rare, even though an item exists that allows users to change sprites at will. No one has ever done anything about that, until now. We are a group of trainers who hunt pokemon with retro sprites as others hunt shiny pokemon. Our goal is to collect as many retro pokemon as we can, and show the world the very first pokemon sprites.

Rules
  • The secret pokemon is a bulbasaur.gif.
  • All forum rules apply.
  • Anyone can join, as long as they have at least one pokemon with a sprite from a first or second generation game.
  • Be nice! This is covered in the forum rules, but it cannot be stressed enough.
  • Absolutely no cursing of any kind.
  • All contests and events are optional, but participation is always encouraged.
  • Members who have not been logged on for over a month will be moved to the inactive members list until they return.
  • Members who violate any of these rules will be given one warning. The second offense will get them banned from this club.
  • The secret pokemon is not a bulbasaur.gif. It's a charmander. This will change.
This is the form for applications:
CODE
Application Form
Username/Link to Profile:
One of your pokemon that has a retro sprite (A picture or a link, I want to be able to tell that it's retro):
List all of your other pokemon with retro sprites:
Pokemon species name - # owned
Pokemon species name - # owned
etc.
What is the secret pokemon?:

Current Contests
We Need a Name!
As of now, this army's name is "The Retro Army." Pretty uncreative if you ask me, but that's what this contest is for! Any member who comes up with a name idea that they think is good can PM it to me, and I will edit it into this post. Then another member must "second" the nomination for the name by sending me another PM that says that they would like to second the name. All the names that are submitted and seconded will be put up for voting in a poll on a yet to be determined date. If there are too many submissions to fit in one poll, then there will be multiple rounds of voting, and whichever name gets the must votes will become our new name!

When this question is answered I will post the list of my retro Pokémon.

Retro is short for retrospective... basically meaning "looking back"
Something that is "retro" is "old" in this day.

Yes, but which generations specifically? Because I just released a load of generation 1/2 Magnemites.

@Dragoni: Great! You're in.

@Zak: Dragoni's right, it does mean Generation 1 and 2 pokemon sprites. Your butterfree's sprite is Gen 4.

@Chu-Chu: Could you put a link to or a picture of one of your retro pokemon up please? I should've been more clear on that. Also, I'm confused about you other retro pokemon. It looks like you have two retro raichus and a retro vulpix. Is that right?

@Blueberry: There's an application for a reason.

I came back all excited to see ten new posts, but now I've only got one new member. Oh well, it's good to see that people are interested.

Oh, almost forgot. The "Pokemon name - # you own" means the species name and how many of that species you own that have retro sprites. Then you hit enter and do the next species. So if I had 5 retro slowpokes and a cyndaquil, I would put this:
Slowpoke - 5
Cyndaquil - 1
Nobody who's already submitted an application needs to change this.

Okay, Cupcaeks. Is it alright if I just edit my previous post with the Gen 1 and 2 sprites?

EDIT: I changed my application form!
