As promised today is the last day of updates for The493 collection of wallpapers. For those that may be wondering what was added last, it was Nosepass. Click the link below to visit the gallery but don't head over there too fast, check out the paragraph below for some exclusive wallpapers!

We have coordinated with several websites to celebrate this occasion. Each website that opted to join us will be providing its own, unique, wallpaper for download. You will not be able to get them from us. As our friends post articles about today's event we will link to them from here so you know where to find them. Be sure to check back with us for those updates if you are interested in getting those special wallpapers.

Remember that Pokémon Black/White are slated for release in only 15 days. Remember to check back with us on Saturdays for Pokémon Sunday video coverage. When the games are released we will be featuring massive coverage of the games. Including streaming, YouTube walkthroughs, PokéDex updates and web-pages designed to help trainers progress through the game. We're fully prepared so please join us, news up until then is sure to be pretty hectic!

We'd also like to take this opportunity to formerly announce our intention to work with Arty2 of LegendaryPokémon.net on his project The Pokémon Standards Initiative. Click the image to the left to read the full article at LP.net. In short, though, the Standards Initiative aims to standardize Pokémon data presentation, storage and more in streamlined and open source format so as to allow Pokémaniacs, such as yourself, to move easily from site to site with your Pokémon data and would require all sites to present data in a single, standardized, format. Another benefit is to provide webmasters with an open dataset, which would truly make our jobs easier; 7 webmasters and 7 datasets is not nearly as logical as having 7 webmasters working on a single dataset together. This is truly a project concept to behold and we're ready to work with others on an open source streamlining of data!

Just checked all those links (except for a few that didn't load, one that was down and the forum ones) and, not a single negative feedback. You must be seriously proud of yourself, I know I would.

Oh and make a Wobbuffet one! >_>;;

Ask and ye shall recieve! Drapion has been added, and I've thrown in Skorupi as well. Check out the gallery- it's in national dex order, so it's right after Lucario.

I'm a new member, ran into this website for the first time today. I'm stoked to be apart of the community.

I'd really love to see a squirtle background! Maybe with the tail and side of the shell. It's a great thing you've got going, just made my background sableye today. Hoping to see a squirtle / wartortle in the near future. Thanks for considering!

When people request more than one pokemon, I take one from that list. After I get through the list of people I go back and finish the multiple mons. Vileplume and Flaafy are done, while Oddish, Gloom and Mew will be done after these requests are done.

I'm up to Monferno now.

That's not last night dude, that was just an hour ago.

Kinda curious as to which site it was that had posted a link to these so recently that doubled our average again. If anyone knows and sees this before fellow admin nza does, let us know so we can add it to the "Reviews" post.

And with that, I'm off to bed. Night folks. Total of 55 wallpapers in two "days" (<48 hours).

Sure, I'll add you right below Magmortar...saves me alot of trouble actually- ALOT of requests for Wobbu lately.

And with that, I think I'm going to sleep for a while. Preferably a long while.

EDIT: I feel like I should plug the fact that we're a news reporting community, so we'll have pokemon sunday stuff tomorrow if they show anything interesting~

I've been downloading and numbering the backgrounds (only up to vulpix), and realized there are 155 images so far. assuming i get them all downloaded and packaged up before TopHat makes more, I could break this up a few ways. One would be a giant zip/rar with everything in it, which would be updated every once in a while, with the newest ones zipped separately daily. OR, i could break them into smaller groups, and people can grab the set they want. Any thoughts?

I decided to split them up by region, as well as just one big file.

Johto: http://ahb.me/9x1
Hoenn: http://ahb.me/9x3
Sinnoh: http://ahb.me/9x6
All: [url][/url] *waiting to upload*

A brief note: Monferno doesn't load for some crazy reason. But thanks to nza, who beat me to it, Monferno is included. Also, Monferno and Torterra need to be swapped. Just a small thing i noticed. Also, the only difference between my packs and nza's are that mine are numbered. Thats it. Hope this helps!

Alright guys, I'll try my hardest to have everything above this post done today, but after that I need to explain a couple things:

1: I have carpal tunnel syndrome, and I can assume doing 20+ requests a day isn't exactly helping my case

2: Today will be a busy day- pokemon sunday is airing and we are supposedly looking at a brand new pokemon.

I think after today I'll need to limit wallpapers to 10 a day. You can still requests as much as you'd like, but if it goes over the daily limit you'll have to wait until the next day.

I'm sorry.

Ze Colonel
2010-07-17 15:30:23
Requests are still being taken, but only the ones above TopHat's last post in this thread are going to be done today. From here on out to accommodate his needs, there's only going to be 10 a day. You'd be part of tomorrow's 10.

He's also only accepting one request per person to be fair. The rest of the requests from that person are put in the back of the line. So, in example, you requested Alakazam, Metagross and Crawdaunt. Then the next three people requested Aerodactyl, Exeggutor and Kadabra respectively.

The order would be:
Alakazam
Aerodactyl
Exeggutor
Kadabra
Metagross
Crawdaunt

TopHat
2010-07-17 16:37:40
In 30 minutes I have to put a pause on today's requests- pokemon sunday will air soon after that and we gotta report that.

Wallpapers will continue shortly afterward.

So far, these wallpapers are left for today:

Buizel
Scyther
Octillery
Slowpoke
Torkoal
Rypherior
Politoad

If your pokemon isn't on this list it's in tomorrow's queue.
Ze Colonel
2010-07-17 16:41:22
Changelog is up to date now.

Edit: Alright! Octillery is the last update for now. We're turning our gaze to Pokemon Sunday now, which has promised a lot of new Pokemon Black and White information (likely a recap of CoroCoro, mixed in with gameplay). Something to note is that the official site is scheduled to upload a new trailer for these games sometime next week, so it might premier on Pokemon Sunday.

We appreciate everyone's patience and support. Once we're done with the news article and Youtube video for Pokemon Sunday, we'll finish off today's list.
TopHat
2010-07-17 16:58:44
Time for us to prepare for pokemon sunday.

Here's the rest of today's mons I need to do afterwards:

Slowpoke
Torkoal

Politoad

Anything requested after those will be done tomorrow.

I love all the new ones that are up. So. Cute. Your work is brilliant but I think we can all agree that being able to continue using a mouse is worth slowing down on the updates (says she that has already had her requests filled I was expecting it to take a couple of days when I asked though)

I got here via tumblr which I suspect is where a lot of people will be coming from.

Also the change log says that butterfree is up but I can't see it in the gallery

I make the wallpapers, Ze does the uploading. Odds are we had some miscommunication and I screwed up. We're wrapping up pokemon sunday news (There's quite a bit of footage- we'll have it up on the front page in a bit!) and we'll fix everything up afterwards.

Here's my current list- a long line means a day has passed. Remember: 10 a day so save myself from surgery and whatnot.

-Alakazam
-Metagross
-Crawdaunt
-Raichu
-Latias
-Psyduck
-Venusaur
-Wartortle
-Bayleef

Just want to say that all of these are amazing! I have a mac and so I can set my desktop to rotate through a folder, and I have all of these saved to that folder! I get to see a new one of these every minute, it's great.

I also know that you're very busy and are limiting yourself, but It's too much to resist... May I request Regigigas? Thank you very much, and keep up the good work (while keeping your carpal tunnel down)!

These are incredibly impressive! I've got all of them rotating as my desktop picture right now, but I would greatly appreciate a Lanturn wallpaper. I see that your list is already large and it doesn't show signs of stopping so a feel a little bad requesting a Pokémon, but I would hate to see my favorite never get done and you said you're doing it by requests only.

Long post short, love your wallpapers but a Lanturn one would make me love them more. =)

By the way things look, it seems like I'll end up doing all of them anyway. :V Keeping it to requests though because it's more fun that going in order.

I need me some Fearow, please. It's been my go-to bird 'mon since Yellow.

Also, did Gengar's wallpaper get changed? When I downloaded the batch, it had "Grim Grinning Ghost" on it, but the 493 page doesn't feature this. Also, did its mouth get rebalanced (may be my eyes betraying me).

Excellent work, though if I have a true criticism, it's when the designs are too detailed, such as Cherubi and Cherrim having faces along with the well-defined rest from their bodies. Aesthetically, I prefer when my simple-style wallpapers aren't explicitly staring at me. However, given how those two, in particular, are happy sorts of Pokémon, the retention of faces is aight (and I'd be fully remiss(?) if Wooper and Quagsire's wallpapers didn't feature their durr-tastically smile-inducing grins; love that armless li'l--).

Ah ha, I was hoping someone would eventually bring this up.

Okay so....as much as I hate to turn down requests, I can't do shinies. If I do one shiny wallpaper, I'll end up having to do it for the entire collection- this means over 900 wallpapers...and I simply can't do that. My goal is to have all requests completed and the gallery finalized before the release of Black and White- we cover games on youtube- so spending unnecessary time both hurts the site and my wrist.

If you don't like one go ahead and alter it for personal use. They look good, but a criticism I got earlier asked for them to look less face-like. Most of the ones you remade were JUST abstract enough to make it less obvious (Wobbufett in one color made it less of a face and more of a random pattern). Yours look great, but they go against the one criticism I've received so far, derp.


Anyway for some reason I can't access the site manager so I can't update the gallery, but I finished the next set:

-Girafarig
-Infernape
-Walrien
-Hariyama
-Raikou
-Jirachi
-Swampert

I'll post again when I found a way to get them up.
kinneas123
2010-07-20 17:20:36
I think that, considering that you have 493 backgrounds to make, a few "facelike" ones are just fine, but I do also think that your original wallpapers are better than the "remakes" that were posted by Lytic (sorry, man). But ultimately, it's just a matter of opinion, and you can't make every background please every person.

I for one like everything you've done so far.

@Tophat
Perhaps I just like consistency in style, and many of your more abstract ones, which I think most of them were done earlier, aren't consistent with the majority of the ones you've made so far.

In terms of the criticism you got, personally, I don't think it's a matter of faceless-ness. Some Pokemon are just easier to do in this style. Many of the ones that I find really good, the Pokemon used has a very defining feature on or near their head. All the Shimama wallpaper is is it's mane and an ear, and it works great because it's such a defining feature of Shimama. I mean, Cherubi and Cherrim without faces would probably look great as well, but something like the Jigglypuff wallpaper would definitely work better with the eyes. Eyes without the pupils do give the Pokemon a sense of faceless-ness, but they're still an indicator of a face. Also some Pokemon don't really even have eye-whites >_>;; I'm not saying all your abstract one are "bad", it works quite well for some of them (Charizard and Mewtwo).
Regardless, the "face", or the head rather, is important, because that's how many of the Pokemon are recognized.

@kinneas123
I know it's a matter of opinion, that's why I remade some of them :P
I shared thinking there are people out there that may like some of mine better. You never know~

Edit: Loving the Girafarig one :D

Enjoying the wallpapers immensely! However, I can't seem to view the Monferno image properly, nor when I go to save it can I use it as a wallpaper. Just wanted to give the headsup.

Also, can I request Machop and/or Chimchar for my daughter? Those are her favorites and she's been excited to see if they're up every day.

Try the full archive, it should work then. Just unzip it to the same directory the others are stored and skip/overwrite the existing images to thwart repeats.

I'll look into why the image is misbehaving.

First off I'd like to say I love love love some of these and thank you for making them :D
Sandslash, Shimama, Glaceon, and Leafeon are among my favourites, along with many others~

I hope you don't mind but I edited some of them because I thought they'd look a little better imo, and remade some others because, tbh, some of the ones you made are not as great as others. Your newer ones do look better though :)

I thought I'd share:

You might not know this but we have a user-submitted gallery where you can upload yours if you want. :D

I prefer the single-colored Wobbu but that's because I'm a bluetard. >_>

.:Edited:.

Lytic's last post@ I know I'm totally out of place here and I can't speak for anyone since I have nothing to do with this project but I thought the whole point of making them abstract (or "faceless") was so the wallpapers wouldn't immediately stand out as pokemon wallpapers and everyone could use them anywhere. =/

[quote="wizkid17"]These are just some more that I love oh so much.
Red Gyarados


While Teej doesn't want to get into making shinies and I have no intention of taking requests, shiny Gyarados is one of my favorites...[/quote]
"Teej", huh? That's the, what, second time I've seen that attributed to someone else? Almost as feels good man as seeing "jeebus" around.

Anyway, I'd argue that since players are guaran-damn-teed to see a Red Gyarados, then it's in a similar league as Rainbow-Arceus.

From personal desire, a couple animu-alternates that would be die-for are Golden Magika-- oh, wait, it was only the Ball that was golden... and Ash's scarf'd Butterfree.

As for my Cherubi/Cherrim critique, it's mostly from a personal standpoint, and a desire for a recognizable abstractness, such that an artsy-fartsy would think it's some thought-provoking minimalism; from my point of view, at least when I commented, body + face seemed "too" recognizable (as compared to, say, Haunter, which is just a face). But, eh, that was just from a glance at the big list, so don't mind me much if a design really calls out to you.

*then reads a response when going backwards to find current requests list*
*reads one of TopHat's responses to my criticism*
Wait, you changed wallpapers because of what I said? Hopefully you didn't do that simply because of my post. If they feel/felt right to you, then as that they ought to stay. The only reason I'd want any of them to change is if you, after consideration, felt that altering them would better fit your vision for this series. There's no point in personal art if it doesn't satisfy the person making it, right?
*re-reads it*
OOOOOH. Well, I'm not deleting all that tap-tap-tapping on the keyboard now. (...derp)

NOW FOAR MAH REQUESTZ!
-
*can't think of any that I really want that I don't see; bad memory*
Y'know, the faces on those two do suit them well enough; it's kinda hard to make them not look like faces when they're just pupils. Maybe it was the open mouth instead of a shallow "U" of others that really stood it out. Cherrim would look kinda odd if there wasn't something there, since the focus is the yellow non-spot, which would just have a "gap" at the bottom without something within it.

OH! Request: Alternate form of Cherrim (that doofy little leaf cover that my Platinum 'dex is stuck displaying, thanks to Gardenia's battle being indoors, durrp).

In that same vein, Castform and its Sunny, Rainy, and Snowy formes.

EDIT: Good Arceus, that's a big post. Anyway, still curious aboot that status of "Grim Grinning Ghost".

2010-07-20 20:05:57
The only wallpaper I went and physically changed was the Gengar one- all I did there was remove it. All I said was that it was a legitimate criticism and it would definitely be considered from that point on. That was removed pretty soon afterward because it was clashing with the rest of the gallery.

Rainbow Arceus was made because

1: 100th wallpaper so exciting

2: Recreating all the plates would have turned out to be a pain SO LET'S VOMIT THEM ALL INTO ONE IMAGE.

Backgrounds made by Teej/TopHat to pay homage to the first 493 Pokémon as the new Pokémon of Isshu are met. No promises are being made on making one of each...

Had I been referring to a pair of individuals an ampersand would have been used instead of the slash that was used, which instead implies a single individual with multiple aliases.

A friend of mine threw this up on facebook, claiming he had stumbled across it.

I took a look and I was very impressed. The wallpapers are simple, yet extremely pleasant to look at it.

Of course there is just one, tiny problem.

There's no Wigglytuff!

I'd be most happy if you could make one, I'm rather excited to see how it would turn out.

Continue doing what you're doing, it's looking fantastic so far.

Are these wallpapers allowed to be used for anything else? I feel like they'd make super awesome t-shirts... I'm tempted to see if I can't get a friend to just make me one but I wouldn't want to do it without the artist's consent. I WISH I could suggest making them commercially available because I know plenty of people that would pay money for them but copyright law probably makes that a no-no... Hrm...

Had to respond to an email about this earlier. Basically, here's my stance on this:

1: You can make shirts for personal use. Selling is a no-no. The second we go from non-profit to profit is when we lose our fair-use.

2: If t-shirts are made, I want pictures. No legal reasons, they'd just be really neat to see.


If you can agree to both go for it~

Hi, was finally able to get on the site after finding a proxy....it sure is cool being locked out of a site you help run because of how popular it is. A+ TREATMENT HOSTGATOR

Here's the deal with the walls: After being added to the site, I only save my favorites. The old walls aren't GONE to my knowledge, but I can't edit the gallery because of this whole mess. The best thing I can do is take all of the ones I've saved/ done and put them in an imageshack gallery until we can touch our own gallery again.

*sees Vulpix in the Changelog*
Saw it last night or two, and looking at it now, I like that there aren't as many lines (they weren't the most elegant/smooth of things), though now I wonder if the mostly solid fur-pieces sit well with me. [spoiler=]If I were to alter it, I would may... may would... use progressively darker shades for each tail/head curl extending away from the viewer, though I don't know how well that would fit with Vulpix's actual colors (maybe say "it's shadows"?).[/spoiler]

On the subject of Vulpix, I was quizzing my sister on the wallpapers, and she got stumped on Ninetales. When I said the name, she retorted, "Then it should have the nine tails!" I don't think she was actually criticizing anything, but going off of 'frustration' (heck, she was in a rut for a little of Vulpix being Eevee). However, it probably wouldn't be reasonable to have both the head and tails of the evolution in one picture; too large. Unless... the tails as seen from the back, with whatever details of the head off to the side (as if its head were turned, looking back at the viewer/the side)?

Dammit, man, do not get me to desire making my own! Not only can I not (our most sophisticated art-making program is MS Paint), but there's no way I'd get a consistency close to your project!

EDIT: Oooh, looking forward to what you do with Spinda, what with its, er, inconsistent appearance.

Oh wow that sounds cool. Do it and post pictures when you're done.

@TJF558

If you recall, the initial vulpix had the tails with various colors. I had ALOT of complaints about it, plus I didn't like it either, so it was changed and the head was added. If you want to alter it for personal use, go for it.

As for Nintetails the tails were initially going to be put in, but the problem was the size, yea. If I ever go back to revisit that, I'll definately take your words into consideration

Personal opinion: Ninetales has a couple of memorable features. Among them, while sure there's the tail(s), it also has it's hair on it's head styled very uniquely, which is the focus of the wallpaper. Seeing that I can't think of anything -other- than Ninetales, especially when paired with that specific colour. Then again, it's not something someone who hasn't played Pokemon in a long time would remember, but for those who have or at least played RBY actively it is.

Just the way I see it.

Ooooh. Well, shows what my memory is like (though it had lines showing the inner curls of the tails); when I get my lappy back, I'll have a look-see at it.

Also, please, if I ever come off as annoying or dumb, let me know, in case you're being polite. Many of my tastes and opinions change, and at any point in time, they can be rather misguided on un-based (case in point: Vulpix), so let me know if I'm stepping out of line with ya, 'kays.

As usual, excellent work! I don't want to be 'that guy' but could you toss up a Pichu without the spiky ear? Just a suggestion and can be done on your own time if at all. Personally I see it as a 'special' design, like your Raikou with the Gurren Lagann reference or Red Gyarados. Just my opinion, but again, great work, very impressive.

The way downloads work has been changed and the filenames of images in the downloads has also been streamlined.

In an effort to cut bandwidth, please only download the fullpack archive if you do not have a majority of the wallpapers. Otherwise, download the individual archives, which have been labeled based on the date they were created and only contain the backgrounds that were added that day.

WARNING !! Downloading the fullpack archive starting today will mean a massive amount of duplicate images on your hard-drive, as most filenames have modified to consist only of lower-case letters. This will allow the gallery to work with other scripts on the website (more on that later today).

2010-07-26 23:16:52
The ones I requested(Baltoy, Claydol, Bastiodon, etc.) are absolutely incredible! Thank you so much! I'm using the Claydol one as my wallpaper now.

I did notice something a bit thematically strange about one of them, though... I didn't want to mention it, but I figure since you've redone a couple I may as well put it out there and see if you agree. The Blastoise one seems to feature neither his shell nor his cannons/tail, while Squirtle and Wartortle feature their tails and shells... it just seems a bit off that his cannons aren't at least shown. Not really a complaint, mind, as I still think you did a fantastic job with it, but it just struck me as odd. ^^;
steely
2010-07-27 00:06:54
simply fantastic. i hope you get an awesome job if you don't already have one. i've got them all shuffling on my desktop every 9 minutes. one of my favorite desktop environments of all time is currently on the biggest tv i've ever owned and it looks sweet, thanks to you. my gf echoes the thanks.
and now i beg you: please meowth it up a bit.
that would kill me. and the kid who works for me (an rl brock) asked for, duh, onyx. haha.

The difference in this situation is that the previous remakes were because

1: Numerous people thought they were lacking

and/ or

2: I thought they were poor quality

Blastoise is neither, but I see your point. It's on my to-do list, but that's for a "free time" rather than a "get it done tomorrow" kinda deal.

Hey dude, awesome work. I currently have them all rotating per minute as my wallpaper.
I'd like to request Hypno and Slowbro, but I have a reason.
I've made my own rendition of these for my own personal use, and I'd like to see what yours come out like.
I won't post the links here out of respect for your art and your thread, but I have them if you'd like to see.
If anyone else is interested, I've done Hypno, Slowbro and my own Nidoking, but you'll have to PM me for them, unless Teej says otherwise.

There are not enough words to express my gratitude.

But it honestly begs the question(if it hasn't already been asked =P) How exactly do you make your wallpapers? What is the process that goes into making them?
TopHat
2010-07-28 00:53:47
I take Sugimori work, use it as a color palette.

From there I go one of two ways:

1: Create original work with it (Tribal designs, regis)

2: Redraw the current posing, slowly adding details until I think it works. Note that I look then draw, I try to avoid tracing (Though I'll use it on occasion to make sure that details are perfect, such as slanted eyes and things like Dunsparce's drill or Sentret's tail)

Basically, when I think I'm done I finish. Until then I keep making it more detailed.

I made an account just to reply to this thread. :D

I just wanted to point out that the alternate Dunsparce seems to have weird "ears" that are a slightly different shade of yellow than the background.

And Flygon's thumbnail hasn't been updated, so it seems like it's still the old one. I wouldn't have known that there was a new one if I hadn't looked at the update log.

Also, I'd like to request Shiftry :)

These are all amazing wallpapers! :D

The 493 is just referring to the amount of pokemon, not the amount of wallpapers. He has multiple forms for various mons already, such as Dunsparce, Kyogre and Flygon.

Quick update on yesterday's bonus set:

nza uploaded the new Smugleaf wall and I asked him to mention this. He didn't so I will real quick:

I originally made the design for http://pokejungle.net/ I asked the owner if I could re-use the design in another wallpaper, and of course he didn't have a problem with it. Just wanted to make sure everyone knew I recycled the design from that poster....wouldn't be good if people thought he stole it.

Schaeffa, that Flaafy shirt looks quite tight on you; is it a women's size?

Also, with that MissingNo wallpaper, I wonder if that is a sign of good things to come.

I had just registered to request Mesprit, Kirlia and Roselia, then I do a search for them and find they are all on your to do list! You're really dedicated to this arent you? I have a feeling you'll get them all done at this rate.
I guess since I got nothing to request you can have these encouragements. *encouragement encouragement*

I just make the background (ie. main color) of the images transparent in Photoshop and uploaded the designs to www.spreadshirt.com. They seemed to be the cheapest and had the best color variety of those 'upload your own image and make a shirt' sites. When I realized that I didn't have an iron, I decided to do that instead of iron-ons which I had originally intended. =P

Cool. I don't save the original .ai files for the493, but if you want an Isshu shirt I can get you the graphic with a transparent background already in place. It'd help the pixelation a tiny bit.

Also it looks like requests have started to slow down...doesn't look like they'll last the week right this moment. Feel free to keep requesting, people! Everything needs to get done eventually.

Just felt like mentioning that I just counted everything up: The gallery currently rests at a snug 295 wallpapers! Let's cut out a dunsparce and Arceus, and we're sitting at 293...which means tomorrow's update will put us right past the 300 mark. That's more than all of the first two generations combined!

Here be the situation:

1: All wallpapers that were scheduled for yesterday will be finished today. That includes the rest of the Isshu mons
2: August is here which means it's starting to get busy. Here's some things that will no doubt distract me:

a: Professor Layton and the Unwound Future
b: Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep (I'm a Disney nut...It's a guilty pleasure. :C)
c: Black and White News Coverage
d: Me and a friend are getting a team together for a Team Fortress 2 tournament. http://etf2l.org/highlander/ If anyone has a copy of TF2, I'll provide a server IP so you can watch me get stomped by the pros. I'll be rolling Engineer, in case you're interested.
e: College


I'll still aim for 10 a day but the day college starts it will go from standard to a goal. I may get 10, I may get 5....I may get one. I promise there will be daily updates though, no matter how small.

As well, some things have changed...
- The first post has been updated and it now includes daily archive links and lists all of the Pokemon included in the archives. It lists additions from most recent to oldest.
- Fullpack archives are no longer alphabetical and are instead broken up by region introduced, the same way that they are broken up in the gallery itself.

spoink
floatzel

And let it be known that Spoink was WALLPAPER 400

That is 400 UNIQUE POKEMON ALSO note that that means that I have less than 100 to go!

And now for the bad news: College is starting, so I'm gonna have to cut back the daily amount of walls from 10 to 5...sorry, but things are starting to pile on to my plate that are a bit more important than fan art. Updates will still be consistent, however.


For some brighter news: In celebration of the newest milestone, tomorrow's update will be "Alt Form" themed. Expect Shellos, Wormadam, Rotom, Giratina, etc in a massive update tomorrow.

Yeah, I'm really obviously one of the "just joined the forum to request wallpapers" people, but what can I say? I'd been meaning to join a Pokemon site one of these days... plus, of course, these are seriously AWESOME -- a friend of mine sent me the Feraligatr one because she thought I'd like it and it's been sitting on my desktop making me grin for the past day or so.

Honestly, I can't believe no one's requested Ponyta or Rapidash yet! :( I think all I doodled in fourth grade was stupid fire-horses. So, definitely requesting that Ponyta and Rapidash get put on the list!

And while I'm requesting, Mamoswine needs to glare out from my computer screen as well...

Unfortunately, they were not sent to me and Teej and I have already discussed this but, for clarity here, he's likely going to have to redo those two.

As for today, all appropriate updates have been made. 13 Walls were added in total. Only the Sinnoh fullpack archive was updated.

I saw that missing Pokémon are mostly unrequested, so I wanted to ask for you guys to please do the Jumpluff/Skiploom/Hoppip line when you get time. :D Jumpluff is my favourite Pokémon; I'd love to see it in this style.

While I'm posting... I think Horsea and Victrebell have been requested before, but they were in huge lists... so maybe if another person requests them specifically they'll be bumped up, because of the way the requests are prioritized? *hopeful face*

Oh, and DEFINITELY seconding jumpluff's request for the Hoppip/Skiploom/Jumpluff line.

Not sure if there are any more on there that are already made, but those are the ones I saw. Also, Meditite doesn't have a wallpaper but it isn't on the list.

Are there plans to make wallpapers for the multiple forms of Castform, and Cherrim's night form? 'Cause I don't think either of those have been requested.

Teej intends to do all alternate formes. Castform, Deoxys and Cherrim may have just slipped his mind when he tackled the alt formes last week, or perhaps he got tired (that update included around 14 Pokemon iirc). They will eventually get done, though if that comes before or much after the release of Black/White is something Teej will have to comment on for himself.

Wow. Well, there's almost always an error or two (in this case eight) when building a database. You are 100% correct. I actually just ran a quick query to pull everything that had a 0 value in the database and compared that list to the requests list but you are right on every single one of those errors. I double checked everything and corrected the errors...

Here's a proper, ammended list, which includes the requests made in the last several posts... It now includes 65 monsters and would require 13 days to finish at a rate of 5 per day (including today's update, the Pokemon of which were added today have been removed from the list). Remember that starred names indicate requests that have already been put in for.

If he made that he may as well make the Skeleton Kabutops and Aerodactyl as well. I don't see why it would be necessary. Besides, Missingno is (somewhat) considered an actual Pokémon. You can fight with it, it has a typing, moveset, and even Dex No.

First off, there must be Sugimori art for it and as a corollary it'd have to be an actual Pokemon. Obviously the unknown identifiers used in generation 1 games do not qualify but hey, maybe when Teej is all done and has had a nice break from making walls he'll reconsider.

If one were to be done then both would be. However, their creations are unlikely and would only be considered after this project and the IsshuCollection are both complete along with our Black/White game coverage. As result don't expect anything at all, and if Teej does decide to take them on it would likely be in October, at best.

Unlike the above, these would be done along with the Deoxys Formes, but again don't expect them too soon. That is, unless Teej decides to show me up :D

If you haven't caught our front-page news yet, The493 will get its last update this Friday, with all 493 Pokemon and their formes being done. As Teej has stated already, I'll be handling uploads and updates until then as he needs to focus on classwork this week.

Today, Thursday and Friday's updates will feature seven Pokemon while tomorrow's will feature only six.

Kanto is complete. That archive will no longer be updated.

Today's archive: https://pldh.net/media/gallery/the493/083110.rar

May your work with the Isshu region be enjoyable and fulfilling.

As for me, downloaded the "alpha" fullpack, extracted into Public Pictures, tried to change the "fullpack" folder's picture to Pikachu, was thwarted, extracted each .rar individually (why not in a group, self?), set those to their Piklones (Plusle, Marill, Pikachu, Pachirisu)...then cut-&-pasted their contents into the main folder. Now my background's back on a ten minute shuffle (though I did really like that The Path wallpaper of Rose).

Hi TopHat, I would just like to congratulate you on your hard work and obvious success. Just last week, I was looking for Pokemon Wallpapers on google search, and fortunately after some clicking, I was led to the 493! I am amazed at your dedication, and honestly, there is not one image I don't like (although I do favor the Growlithe one :D). I do have a few questions, of which you've probably been asked before. But if you don't mind answering I would greatly appreciate it!
1. Do you use Photoshop?
2. Could I make a few t-shirts out of the design for my friends and myself? I have the design if you want to see it, just PM me.
3. When I try to download the "Complete (all 493)" Numerical or Alphabetical, it is set to save as a .rar file. I don't quite know what that means, except that when I do download it as that, it's not coming up. So I just saved it as a .png file, but that still didn't work... Any suggestions?
4. Is there any way that you could make it so when I change the background color to white, it doesn't leave the patches of the previous color on the Pokemon? I don't think I can do anything about it in MS Paint, except go through with the eraser :\.
(e.g.

Sorry that was all such a mouthful!
Thank you again for taking the time to make all of these epic wallpapers! And take your time responding, school comes first!
-David
EDIT: For the t-shirt design, just look at my avatar :) Cool, right?
TopHat
2010-11-23 23:12:59
1: I use adobe illustrator and then put it on the canvas in photoshop
2: So long as you don't sell them for profit, that's fine with me.
3: A .rar file is just a folder zipped up with the images. Download it as a .rar and see if you can automatically open it. If not, download a program like 7zip and open it with that and you're good to go.
4: You're a few months late, sorry. If I still had the original .ai files, I could just give the design to you on a transparent background. As of now, it's impossible to do any better, unfortunately.

Yup, design is awesome. I have a weakness for paint splatters.

Erasing things with MS Paint will leave some jagged edges. You'll have to hand paint some fading into the background to fix that. Ultimately, I'd suggest you use either Gimp or Photoshop. Or ultimately, trace over everything in Illustrator to recreate more easily modifiable files, but most people don't have that, and I've never found a good free alternative. Gimp/Photoshop will still give a you a bit of a hard time with this kind of thing, but it'll be much quicker and smoother (the edges, and the experience) in the end.

Edit: actually, Inkscape is an excellent free alternative to Illustrator.

Hey sorry to bother you but i have a question. I am a bit confused regarding the Unova wallpapers. When i read the paragraph at the top of the page it seems to me like you may be done making them. I was wondering if that was the case because i was looking forward to Ishizumai ( http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/ ... k%C3%A9mon) ) and don't see it on there. I really love these wallpapers and was looking forward to getting my favorite from the new sets one. I even made an account on this site specifically to ask about this. Sorry to bother you and thanks for your time

As the very end of this article touches on, the Unova Collection is being finished off behind the scenes and you will be seeing the remainder of the new Pokemon getting their walls starting sometime before the end of next week. What we're hoping to do is, once we're ready, start uploads at set intervals again (so about every second day or something like that).

I wanted to say I love these wallpapers. I just submitted my own edit of the Reshiram and Zekrom ones. I wanted to have something like that for my computer, but I noticed the user submitted one has a vertical gradient, which is good but it doesn't fit my taste personally. I made basically the same thing just with a diagonal gradient instead, makes it a bit more visually striking IMO. Hopefully you guys like it.

Also, would it be OK if I put the background I submitted on my Deviant art account? I figured it was a good idea to ask first since I didn't come up with the idea and basically just shopped something up using the images and ideas from PLDH. If its a problem then I understand. I just wanted to put something on my deviant art account since I still haven't put anything in my gallery.

Anyway, keep up the great work on these wallpapers, they look awesome.

I don't see a problem so long as you at least say something like "Original art from PLDH" or something similar

Sure, just have link pointing back at the source and we're totally fine with that.

Any chance on getting the female players and Silver, Wally, and Barry?


I made my own female players for my personal collection.
But I don't intend to post them without Tophat's approval, since it's his project, not mine.

I've updated the Rarities gallery with some newer Ghost Trick and Epic Mickey walls.



And of course, the B&W Countdown gallery is still being updated...

I just noticed this but...

For the B/W Countdown, you uploaded Archeops on my birthday.

It was probably unintentional, but thank you guys anyways, you're awesome. :D

Oh man I hate to revive what looks like a dead topic but I have no clue where else to ask this.

I'm new to the site and recently found these wallpaper, and would like to know if I could request someone to make a Lucario on that looks like the Zoroark or Riolu as in a full body one.

With the entire dex completed you can probably imagine how open my schedule is. There's always classwork and stuff and that takes priority but if someone has a request odds are I'll fill it. If you or someone you know wants anything else let me know.

Can iOS users get a version? I tried using these but they don't fit T-T I'd love these to fit perfectly. Also some comemerative suggestions would be Link and Mario and maybe Sonic. I'd love to see them all(: your work is amazing!

Hey, I was browsing deviantart today, and... I found someone ripping off the wallpapers claiming them as his own:

Well, I'm pretty sure it's only stylistically ripping them off, but that's a whole different plagiarism deal.

Here's one that I'm almost certain is a complete and total rip off...

Yes! We're aware of that guy, and I do believe Teej has contacted him and didn't get a response.

I love all these wall papers. (^-\\) And I really like all the trainer ones you've made too. I think it'd be awesome to see the other protagonists/rivals get a wallpaper. It'd be especially exciting to those who read Pokemon Adventures. :d00f: <3
