Yes, I'm doing it too.

Pokémon Green Red/Blue Yellow Gen I Back Gold Silver Crystal Gen II Back Gen I Thoughts Gen II Thoughts
Bulbasaur Spr 1g 001.png Spr 1b 001.png Spr 1y 001.png Spr b g1 001.png Spr 2g 001.png Spr 2s 001.png Spr 2c 001.png Spr b 2g 001.png Green is a little off, but nothing too bad. Yellow is nice and everything else is passable. Crystal blinks too much, that's my only gripe.
Ivysaur Spr 1g 002.png Spr 1b 002.png Spr 1y 002.png Spr b g1 002.png Spr 2g 002.png Spr 2s 002.png Spr 2c 002.png Spr b 2g 002.png It's not looking good for Green. Red/Blue is just breaking rules now and the backsprite is kinda odd. Gold is nice, Silver's about to sneeze, and Crystal's toned down on the blinking. Looking ok all round.
Venusaur Spr 1g 003.png Spr 1b 003.png Spr 1y 003.png Spr b g1 003.png Spr 2g 003.png Spr 2s 003.png Spr 2c 003.png Spr b 2g 003.png Green is basically dead now, the backsprite looks like a salad, Yellow is good again, and Red/Blue seems a little small. Gold still holds up, Silver is now yawning, and Crystal has started flirting. Backsprite continues to be good though.
Charmander Spr 1g 004.png Spr 1b 004.png Spr 1y 004.png Spr b g1 004.png Spr 2g 004.png Spr 2s 004.png Spr 2c 004.png Spr b 2g 004.png Green is the product of incest, Red/Blue is too scary to be Charmander, Yellow's kinda cute, and the backsprite is fine except for the spikes. All so fucking cute. No complaints whatsoever.
Charmeleon Spr 1g 005.png Spr 1b 005.png Spr 1y 005.png Spr b g1 005.png Spr 2g 005.png Spr 2s 005.png Spr 2c 005.png Spr b 2g 005.png Charmeleon falls further down in Green, the flame on Red/Blue looks wrong, Yellow fixes that, and that backsprite was clearly the last thing to do on a Friday. The lot of them are very menacing, to the point of insanity in Crystal's case.
Charizard Spr 1g 006.png Spr 1b 006.png Spr 1y 006.png Spr b g1 006.png Spr 2g 006.png Spr 2s 006.png Spr 2c 006.png Spr b 2g 006.png Poor old Green is destroyed beyond repair, Red/Blue tries and fails to be scary, and Yellow thinks that it's a Dragonite. Backsprite can't be salvaged either, I'd rate these but they'll probably eat me.
Squirtle Spr 1g 007.png Spr 1b 007.png Spr 1y 007.png Spr b g1 007.png Spr 2g 007.png Spr 2s 007.png Spr 2c 007.png Spr b 2g 007.png Before Yellow, it looked more like a baby than a Squirtle. These are ok, but Crystal's too early to try and look scary.
Wartortle Spr 1g 008.png Spr 1b 008.png Spr 1y 008.png Spr b g1 008.png Spr 2g 008.png Spr 2s 008.png Spr 2c 008.png Spr b 2g 008.png Green is silly and the rest look like superheroes, chubby ones in the case of Red/Blue. This continues into Generation II, with Crystal even shaking his shell in the process.
Blastoise Spr 1g 009.png Spr 1b 009.png Spr 1y 009.png Spr b g1 009.png Spr 2g 009.png Spr 2s 009.png Spr 2c 009.png Spr b 2g 009.png Green's too thin, Red/Blue looks like something just stole a Blastoise's shell, and Yellow hasn't grown out of the superhero stuff. Backsprite's a bit boring. Gold is Silver before it fell over, and Crystal's still trying to look scary. Only the tail wagging spoils it. Backsprite's too bright.
Caterpie Spr 1g 010.png Spr 1b 010.png Spr 1y 010.png Spr b g1 010.png Spr 2g 010.png Spr 2s 010.png Spr 2c 010.png Spr b 2g 010.png Green is an alien that came out of green goo, Red/Blue is meh, Yellow's definitely a Caterpie, and I'm half expecting that evil backsprite to bring out a gun. Normal all round.
Metapod Spr 1g 011.png Spr 1b 011.png Spr 1y 011.png Spr b g1 011.png Spr 2g 011.png Spr 2s 011.png Spr 2c 011.png Spr b 2g 011.png Green, Red/Blue, and the backsprite look like they've been on crack. Fortunately Yellow saved the day. Can't complain.
Butterfree Spr 1g 012.png Spr 1b 012.png Spr 1y 012.png Spr b g1 012.png Spr 2g 012.png Spr 2s 012.png Spr 2c 012.png Spr b 2g 012.png Green's wings are damaged, Red/Blue is just a child with wings, Yellow and the backsprite actually looked like bugs. Once again, no big problems. Is this going to be a recurring theme with bugs?
Weedle Spr 1g 013.png Spr 1b 013.png Spr 1y 013.png Spr b g1 013.png Spr 2g 013.png Spr 2s 013.png Spr 2c 013.png Spr b 2g 013.png Green and Red/Blue lacked legs and Yellow seems suicidal Backsprite's nose is also deflated. Apparently not. The stare on all of them is unnerving, Silver's most likely drunk and depressed, while Crystal's practicing that "dangerous bee" look.
Kakuna Spr 1g 014.png Spr 1b 014.png Spr 1y 014.png Spr b g1 014.png Spr 2g 014.png Spr 2s 014.png Spr 2c 014.png Spr b 2g 014.png Green is too thin and tall, Red/Blue is bascially Beedrill already, Yellow is too wide and short. These are about as good as an immobile cocoon gets.
Beedrill Spr 1g 015.png Spr 1b 015.png Spr 1y 015.png Spr b g1 015.png Spr 2g 015.png Spr 2s 015.png Spr 2c 015.png Spr b 2g 015.png Green tries to be threatening and fails, Red/Blue is fine, Yellow tries to be threatening and succeeds. Silver could pass for a bank robber, Gold is silly, and all of Crystal's practice as a Weedle is for naught.
Pidgey Spr 1g 016.png Spr 1b 016.png Spr 1y 016.png Spr b g1 016.png Spr 2g 016.png Spr 2s 016.png Spr 2c 016.png Spr b 2g 016.png It's actually too plain for me to say anything. Are most basic stages going to be this dull?
Pidgeotto Spr 1g 017.png Spr 1b 017.png Spr 1y 017.png Spr b g1 017.png Spr 2g 017.png Spr 2s 017.png Spr 2c 017.png Spr b 2g 017.png Fat before Yellow, but the backsprite is nice. Crystal blinks a lot again. That's all I've got.
Pidgeot Spr 1g 018.png Spr 1b 018.png Spr 1y 018.png Spr b g1 018.png Spr 2g 018.png Spr 2s 018.png Spr 2c 018.png Spr b 2g 018.png Green's ok, Red/Blue is horribly wrong, Yellow is scary, and the backsprite lacks eyes. Silver'd good, Gold and Crystal are kinda chubby, and the backsprite has a nice flowing crest now.
Rattata Spr 1g 019.png Spr 1b 019.png Spr 1y 019.png Spr b g1 019.png Spr 2g 019.png Spr 2s 019.png Spr 2c 019.png Spr b 2g 019.png Dull, bland, boring, and tripe. What did I expect though? It's a rat. Put Silver behind Gold or Crystal and it looks like they're humping each other. Sorry, just bored of this one.
Raticate Spr 1g 020.png Spr 1b 020.png Spr 1y 020.png Spr b g1 020.png Spr 2g 020.png Spr 2s 020.png Spr 2c 020.png Spr b 2g 020.png All terrifying. Still scary, but Silver's just tripped.
Spearow Spr 1g 021.png Spr 1b 021.png Spr 1y 021.png Spr b g1 021.png Spr 2g 021.png Spr 2s 021.png Spr 2c 021.png Spr b 2g 021.png Only Yellow resembles a Spearow. The rest could easly be statues. Silver is throwing a tantrum, but it's fine overall for Generation II.
Fearow Spr 1g 022.png Spr 1b 022.png Spr 1y 022.png Spr b g1 022.png Spr 2g 022.png Spr 2s 022.png Spr 2c 022.png Spr b 2g 022.png Red/Blue is bad but everything else is fine. Especially the backsprite, it's probably the best in Gen I. These are good enough.
Ekans Spr 1g 023.png Spr 1b 023.png Spr 1y 023.png Spr b g1 023.png Spr 2g 023.png Spr 2s 023.png Spr 2c 023.png Spr b 2g 023.png Green is a Bellsprout, Red/Blue are bad too. Yellow really makes this one happen. Wrong colour before Crystal.
Arbok Spr 1g 024.png Spr 1b 024.png Spr 1y 024.png Spr b g1 024.png Spr 2g 024.png Spr 2s 024.png Spr 2c 024.png Spr b 2g 024.png It's good before Yellow, when it becomes rightfully menacing. I'm not a fan of the backsprite pattern though. Gold's kinda tame for Arbok's standards, but it's Silver and Crystal that make the cobra scary again.
Pikachu Spr 1g 025.png Spr 1b 025.png Spr 1y 025.png Spr b g1 025.png Spr 2g 025.png Spr 2s 025.png Spr 2c 025.png Spr b 2g 025.png Oh my, the mascot of Pokémon and Game Freak looked awful before Yellow. I'll bet that anyone messing up the design in that game were sacked. Pikachu's looked rather good ever since.
Raichu Spr 1g 026.png Spr 1b 026.png Spr 1y 026.png Spr b g1 026.png Spr 2g 026.png Spr 2s 026.png Spr 2c 026.png Spr b 2g 026.png I really feel for Raichu, being shafted aside over his famous younger brother All of them look too big, but Yellow not so much. Still fat, still fine, still superior in my eyes.
Sandshrew Spr 1g 027.png Spr 1b 027.png Spr 1y 027.png Spr b g1 027.png Spr 2g 027.png Spr 2s 027.png Spr 2c 027.png Spr b 2g 027.png Yellow is too well hidden and the others are more like Kangaskhan Junior Gold and Crystal are distracted by something, but Silver's good.
Sandslash Spr 1g 028.png Spr 1b 028.png Spr 1y 028.png Spr b g1 028.png Spr 2g 028.png Spr 2s 028.png Spr 2c 028.png Spr b 2g 028.png Yellow takes the cake this time. The rest of them are a bit weird and that backsprite is plotting something. All rather nicely done. Backsprite is really nice here.
Nidoran♀ Spr 1g 029.png Spr 1b 029.png Spr 1y 029.png Spr b g1 029.png Spr 2g 029.png Spr 2s 029.png Spr 2c 029.png Spr b 2g 029.png All wrong. Gold looks like an entirely different Pokémon.
Nidorina Spr 1g 030.png Spr 1b 030.png Spr 1y 030.png Spr b g1 030.png Spr 2g 030.png Spr 2s 030.png Spr 2c 030.png Spr b 2g 030.png No wonder Nidorina can't breed, who'd want to be with this? Crystal seems to think that it's a Rhyhorn or a Donphan.
Nidoqueen Spr 1g 031.png Spr 1b 031.png Spr 1y 031.png Spr b g1 031.png Spr 2g 031.png Spr 2s 031.png Spr 2c 031.png Spr b 2g 031.png I can't tell what the backsprite is, but Yellow is thankfully good to go. The monstroities have migrated to Generation II. Gold is strange, Silver tries to be sexy, and Crystal is dancing...
Nidoran♂ Spr 1g 032.png Spr 1b 032.png Spr 1y 032.png Spr b g1 032.png Spr 2g 032.png Spr 2s 032.png Spr 2c 032.png Spr b 2g 032.png Absolutely awful before Yellow. Silver loses Yellow's scary look and goes back to being cute.
Nidorino Spr 1g 033.png Spr 1b 033.png Spr 1y 033.png Spr b g1 033.png Spr 2g 033.png Spr 2s 033.png Spr 2c 033.png Spr b 2g 033.png Now this is more like it. Except for the backsprite. Same problem with Ekans, wrong colour before Crystal.
Nidoking Spr 1g 034.png Spr 1b 034.png Spr 1y 034.png Spr b g1 034.png Spr 2g 034.png Spr 2s 034.png Spr 2c 034.png Spr b 2g 034.png That's what I call intimidating. They're all nice, Yellow especially. This holds true to the next generation. If not for Gengar, I'd be using this one a lot.
Clefairy Spr 1g 035.png Spr 1b 035.png Spr 1y 035.png Spr b g1 035.png Spr 2g 035.png Spr 2s 035.png Spr 2c 035.png Spr b 2g 035.png Green is confused about something, Red/Blue is cheerful, and Yellow is crushing on something. The backsprite could use improving though. No complaints from me, they're just fine. I would have greatly preferred Clefairy as the mascot instead of Pikachu.
Clefable Spr 1g 036.png Spr 1b 036.png Spr 1y 036.png Spr b g1 036.png Spr 2g 036.png Spr 2s 036.png Spr 2c 036.png Spr b 2g 036.png For once, Green turns out to be the best. Red/Blue is stupid and Yellow is still crushing on something. Still nothing to say.
Vulpix Spr 1g 037.png Spr 1b 037.png Spr 1y 037.png Spr b g1 037.png Spr 2g 037.png Spr 2s 037.png Spr 2c 037.png Spr b 2g 037.png Green's tails and hair are too small, Red/Blue is apparently a deer, Yellow is good, and the backsprite sports a wicked mohawk. Gold is still a deer while Silver and Crystal are mooning those behind them. Backsprite loses the mohawk which is a shame.
Ninetales Spr 1g 038.png Spr 1b 038.png Spr 1y 038.png Spr b g1 038.png Spr 2g 038.png Spr 2s 038.png Spr 2c 038.png Spr b 2g 038.png Green might just be a werewolf and Red/Blue decides to melt one of its legs off. Yellow and the backsprite are both nice and stylish though, even if Yellow is basically Rapidash. Silver looks kinda mean while Gold and Crystal nearly copy Red/Blue's leg melting.
Jigglypuff Spr 1g 039.png Spr 1b 039.png Spr 1y 039.png Spr b g1 039.png Spr 2g 039.png Spr 2s 039.png Spr 2c 039.png Spr b 2g 039.png Really fucking ugly before Yellow, where it becomes the devil incarnate. The demon is fortunately exorcised before Generation II comes round.
Wigglytuff Spr 1g 040.png Spr 1b 040.png Spr 1y 040.png Spr b g1 040.png Spr 2g 040.png Spr 2s 040.png Spr 2c 040.png Spr b 2g 040.png Really fucking ugly before Yellow, but there's no hellspawn this time. Gold is good, Silver is striking a pose, Crystal is shaking that booty. It's fine overall.
Zubat Spr 1g 041.png Spr 1b 041.png Spr 1y 041.png Spr b g1 041.png Spr 2g 041.png Spr 2s 041.png Spr 2c 041.png Spr b 2g 041.png If I listed everything bad before Yellow, we'll be here all night. Silver is too dark, but it's a minor complaint.
Golbat Spr 1g 042.png Spr 1b 042.png Spr 1y 042.png Spr b g1 042.png Spr 2g 042.png Spr 2s 042.png Spr 2c 042.png Spr b 2g 042.png Green is just wrong, Red/Blue stalks us in our sleep, Yellow is fainting from the ugliness of its brothers. What a mess. Silver is now striking poses. Did it learn from Wigglytuff?
Oddish Spr 1g 043.png Spr 1b 043.png Spr 1y 043.png Spr b g1 043.png Spr 2g 043.png Spr 2s 043.png Spr 2c 043.png Spr b 2g 043.png For a living weed, it's not too bad. Likewise. Crystal's somewhat off though.
Gloom Spr 1g 044.png Spr 1b 044.png Spr 1y 044.png Spr b g1 044.png Spr 2g 044.png Spr 2s 044.png Spr 2c 044.png Spr b 2g 044.png Green is squashed, Red/Blue just stretched it out a bit and made it jump, Yellow isn't racist. That's about it. All of Gen II has more drool than usual for a Gloom.
Vileplume Spr 1g 045.png Spr 1b 045.png Spr 1y 045.png Spr b g1 045.png Spr 2g 045.png Spr 2s 045.png Spr 2c 045.png Spr b 2g 045.png Green is completely butchered, Red/Blue is mutated, and Yellow doesn't look too bad. They're good, especially Silver. It's Red/Blue done right.
Paras Spr 1g 046.png Spr 1b 046.png Spr 1y 046.png Spr b g1 046.png Spr 2g 046.png Spr 2s 046.png Spr 2c 046.png Spr b 2g 046.png All bad in their own ways, expect for the backsprite. Gold and Crystal stare into your soul, but Silver's fine.
Parasect Spr 1g 047.png Spr 1b 047.png Spr 1y 047.png Spr b g1 047.png Spr 2g 047.png Spr 2s 047.png Spr 2c 047.png Spr b 2g 047.png Green is too creepy, Red/Blue hates the sun too much, and Yellow likes the sun too much. The backsprite is basically Kingler with a mushroom on top. Gold is Yellow, Silver and Crystal are Red/Blue. Backsprite is still Kingler.
Venonat Spr 1g 048.png Spr 1b 048.png Spr 1y 048.png Spr b g1 048.png Spr 2g 048.png Spr 2s 048.png Spr 2c 048.png Spr b 2g 048.png They somehow looked a little off, but Yellow's colouring was nice. Crystal's glowing eyes are creepy, but it works.
Venomoth Spr 1g 049.png Spr 1b 049.png Spr 1y 049.png Spr b g1 049.png Spr 2g 049.png Spr 2s 049.png Spr 2c 049.png Spr b 2g 049.png No, no, no, no, no... Absolutely worthless and awful before Yellow. Thank goodness this lot are just fine.
Diglett Spr 1g 050.png Spr 1b 050.png Spr 1y 050.png Spr b g1 050.png Spr 2g 050.png Spr 2s 050.png Spr 2c 050.png Spr b 2g 050.png The dirt was a bit off before Yellow, but Diglett itself was just fine. These ones aren't too bad when you ignore Gold and Crystal's floating dirt

To be continued.
