Another one! I'm seriously wondering whether to redo all of the monsters like this... though it seems a shame to waste the hundred or so pixelated sprites I've made over the last two years, on a whim! o_O

Personally, I prefer the pixel sprites that have already been done. It would just surely be an arduous and unnecessary process to redo all these sprites! From the screenshot, I'm rather fond of the existing pixellated style. Perhaps in another "version" of Miasmon, you could make the pixellated sprites move just like these ones, but in the art style they already are.
In the Pokemon Black and White, the Pokemon manage to be animated while retaining their old pixellated style.

I mentioned that I planned to do that originally - have animated pixelated animated sprites - in the description of the Gruul Animation and various comments, I think, but it's much more time consuming to do because I'd have to keep switching between programs to make sure things are just right (as Flash doesn't allow editing bitmaps), and I'd also need to have twice as many assets clogging up Flash's library (because each of the imported bitmaps would also need to be a MovieClip).

Ooh, I like this one a lot too!

Hmm, the animated version looks much rounder, which looks nicer, I'd think!
I also like the flashing eyes, that's one of those interesting things you can't do with a static sprite, hmm.

If doing this actually motivates you to work on Miasmon, then I think it's good! It certainly would make playing the game much fresher!

AND MAYBE YOU SHOULD USE BOTH SPRITES AND ANIMATIONS YES YOU SHOULD :D:D:D:D

Maybe you won't need to discard the pixelated sprites. Is it maybe possible to give the player a kind of Besitiary (a journal or diary, or something along those lines) in which we can review past enemies' strengths, weaknesses and attrbiutes? You can use the sprite as a visual in there, while using the animated ones in battle. Just an idea.

Someone already suggested something very much like that, apparently, but it wouldn't work because I haven't done pixel sprites of all the monsters yet, and I wouldn't want to have to do both the sprite AND the animation for the ones that have neither.

It's not a waste! It's a reference to improvement I say!
