Entire thing is extremely choppy/bad quality. Design wise, eh nothing to0 special. The logos are even worse quality. Logo placement should be changed because it looks really odd where it is. The blending of the water and the ball itself needs much improvement, especially contrast wise.
I still remember my little Pikachu, waddling behind me <33 Good times And I remember all the stupid myths, like if you beat the pokemon league, and push over the van in vermillion city, there was a Mew under there xD
Everyone with nostalgia.. download a Gameboy Color Emulator, and download the Pokemon Roms... hook up a USB game controller, and go to town! Gameshark included. no need to search/trade for any pokemon... just hang out at the lvl 5 area, with Infinite masterball, and catch all Shiny with masterball.
I actually like that you didn't have Blastoise in the picture. I always felt that using a non-version exclusive pokemon in the cover art made it feel as if you were expected to choose that path in the beginning.
