Pokémon Gold and Silver/Changed Graphics

This is a sub-page of Pokémon Gold and Silver.

Several graphical changes were made between versions. They range from changes due to Nintendo's censorship policies to seemingly arbitrary changes to details on Pokémon's sprites. This data comes from ii.marck.us; the Shiny sprites were not copied over since the palettes remain unchanged.

None of these changes apply to the Korean versions.

Pokémon

Most of the sprite changes listed below (e.g. Lanturn, Slowpoke, Feraligatr) were done to make the Pokémon's sprite more accurate to its official artwork; others were just minor touch-ups (Pichu, Sneasel, Girafarig). All these changes were taken into account for the Japanese and international Crystal as well, although with new sprites in most cases.

Jynx's skin color was changed from black to purple outside of Japan due to unfortunate similarities to the blackface stereotype (necessitating the bleaching of her hair), a move that later games would follow suit in. In Japan, the change only occurred in Ruby and Sapphire.
