I'm gonna go and say Kingler and Magmar looked cool. The worst in my opinion was Sandshrew.

Really? I have to say Sandshrew was one of my favourites.

My least favourites would have to be Machop and Machoke.
They're horribly drawn. >.<

Not to mention, Charizard, Rapidash, Gengar, Vaporeon, Dragonite, and most of all, Mew, among others.

Pokemon Yellow's spirtes, however, were fantastic:

I have to agree there - all of them look at least alright.
Just compare the Pikachu's and you can see why there's no competition..

Pokemon Yellow is actually the only main game to be based of the anime. Notice how Pikachu from Green to Yellow seems to have gotten thinner.

Also, look at Gengar's sprite in Green, now THAT is out of this world.

In contrast, some of Green's sprites actually looked cool like Pidgeot, Fearow, Golbat, Parasect, Abra, Flareon, etc.

Why did mew look like a fetus in green? It's not giygas! When ditto looks better than mew, you know you have a problem.

Especially when it looks better than Charizard and Dragonite.

Actually Mew is suppose to resemble a fetus. It's the origin Pokemon. The tail is suppose to represent the umbilical cord and it's usually in a fetal position inside it's aura sphere, embryo. Speaking of Giygas, since the people from Earthbound also worked on Pokemon, Mewtwo is more likely based on Giygas from Mother, or Giegue.

As for my favorites, I don't think anything tops Mew and Mewtwo from Red and Blue. Mew looks perfect and Mewtwo looks like he was meant to look.

I just have to wonder how sprites changed so much during the first generation. Some were already great in Japanese Green/Red and then they went and screw them up while making others better. Yellow has great sprites and I like all of them. I'll list some of my favorites.
Red/Green: Haunter and Hitmonlee. Haunter looks awesome while Hitmonlee looks great it's also funny at the same time.
Red/Blue: Nidoking, Kangaskan and Koffing with skull and crossbones in wrong place.
Yellow: Charizard

EDIT: Don't forget back sprites!

@Happy_Mask Idk the Green one still looks rather freaky to me lol.

I always hated the backsprite for Mewtwo. Looks like he's ready to bo><. Yellow overall has some better looking ones, but there's still some that look better on Red/Green. It's just all over the place though. Idk what was going on while they were making them though. Alright we did this sprite perfect... now let's **** it up!
