Sorry, we can't accept that. It wouldn't be fair since sprites cannot reach that quality of design.

Best Original Evolution Sprite: Create your own original sprite of an evolved form of a pokemon. For example, you can make the evolved form of heracross.

Sure! I like it :P

Try to make it a little different from charizard so that judges won't say you just copied charizard then edited a little.

Hope that helps :D

Yes, but tell me that it is not a fakemon because I haven't memorized their sprites yet.
