:::::The arts you are currently uploading is the [ CORRECT RG arts], which is used for the TCG (the pikachu we have is the correct one). The one that we currently labelled as [[:Category:Art from Pokémon Red and Green|RG]], is actually used in JAPAN YELLOW, which is used for the english Red Blue and Yellow. I bring this point up in the forum quite some years back but still nothing is being settled. -[[User:Pokeant|Pokeant]] ([[User talk:Pokeant|talk]]) 02:40, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
:::::Sorry my bad. Japanese yellow also used the ones you are uploading currently. I cannot find any source of japanese using the ones we originally have on the archive. they appears to be first used for RED and BLUE. The TCG originally use the RG artwork, before switching to the RedBlue art. -[[User:Pokeant|Pokeant]] ([[User talk:Pokeant|talk]]) 02:46, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

::::::I didn't notice there were two Pikachu arts missing. I have them but I couldn't upload (God knows why), so I'll leave [ this link] for you guys to do it in my place. By the way, that Blue Version Blastoise art you uploaded seems to be a fanart (and a pretty darn good one). Where have you found it?

:::::::I'll be honest, I suspected it might be fan art as well but if it is the artist drew/traced it as accurately as possible. I can't remember exactly where it came from because I deleted the original image but I did edit it to match a definitely official picture I found. If it does turn out to be fan made, it is now indistinguishable from the official art. --[[User:Purpleflamecyndaquil|Purpleflamecyndaquil]] ([[User talk:Purpleflamecyndaquil|talk]]) 10:45, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
::::::::Sorry, it's released after japanese blue. i got my dates mixed up. but does not seems to be from japanese blue either. japanese blue released in oct 1996. first usage in japanese media that i know of is fossil TCG (June 1997). There is also [[:File:151Mew RB.png|this mew]] which we do not know from gen I or gen II. -[[User:Pokeant|Pokeant]] ([[User talk:Pokeant|talk]]) 14:08, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
:::::::::That Mew... He looks exactly like the modern one... Whoever uploaded it could have specified from where did get it... By the way, is nobody gonna upload the Pikachu arts I posted on Imgur? For unknown reasons, I seem to have no permission to upload them here... [[User:Xrick03|Xrick03]] ([[User talk:Xrick03|talk]]) 14:16, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
::::::::::The mew is used in nintendo power crystal guide. but we shouldn't trust the english guides. we have 4 companies during the gen II era publishing guides for pokemon. we need reference to japanese media. -[[User:Pokeant|Pokeant]] ([[User talk:Pokeant|talk]]) 14:34, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
::::::::::Both images of Pikachu are now up. I'll try and find a bigger version of the second one. --[[User:Purpleflamecyndaquil|Purpleflamecyndaquil]] ([[User talk:Purpleflamecyndaquil|talk]]) 14:57, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
:You really have to tell me where do you manage to find those artworks with so nice quality... Because I'm an Artwork Maniac. [[User:Xrick03|Xrick03]] ([[User talk:Xrick03|talk]]) 20:31, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
::I just dig deep! Sometimes I search extensively on Google and get lucky. If the art appears on the front cover of a guide there are usually large photos on eBay. If it's really difficult to find, I buy old books online.--[[User:Purpleflamecyndaquil|Purpleflamecyndaquil]] ([[User talk:Purpleflamecyndaquil|talk]]) 20:45, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
:::Well... I admit rarely do I dig deep like you may do because I get bored quite quickly... If you do manage to find a good stash of the RB artworks, can you warn me? [[User:Xrick03|Xrick03]] ([[User talk:Xrick03|talk]]) 20:50, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
:Hi, thank you SO much for actually buying a Japanese artbook and scanning all of the R/G art. I had actually been working on finding clean scans on and off since 2013. (see my thread ) I noticed though that some of your scans have some darker areas from being in the inner parts of pages (like Ponyta for example), and I was wondering if you would want to make use of some of the big Carddass scans I got off of eBay in case they're of higher quality: . Either way, great job. [[User:Catstorm|Catstorm]] ([[User talk:Catstorm|talk]]) 04:12, 11 November 2015 (UTC)
::I'm really glad you found other high quality images, I'll hopefully use them at some point but it won't be in the near future. I recently uploaded RB artwork and many of the pictures have the same issue of going dark as the page folds in. If you could also find high quality versions of those pictures it would be much appreciated. --[[User:Purpleflamecyndaquil|Purpleflamecyndaquil]] ([[User talk:Purpleflamecyndaquil|talk]]) 23:42, 11 November 2015 (UTC)
:::I wish I knew how to find Red/Blue art apart from art books. I've only seen the low quality tiny ones from the old official website. But I will keep an eye out for them. [[User:Catstorm|Catstorm]] ([[User talk:Catstorm|talk]]) 04:12, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
:::Hi, just wondering if you know anything about [[:File:151Mew RB.png|this mew artwork]]? it seems to be from gen I, but the only usage i know of is the nintendo power crystal guide. not sure about the usage in japan though. -[[User:Pokeant|Pokeant]] ([[User talk:Pokeant|talk]]) 16:55, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
::::Sorry, I don't know. My best guess is in a Japanese art book or encyclopedia released during Gold/Silver/Crystal. If you want to search I recommend looking on eBay and a site called fromjapan where you can preview some books on sale. If you use fromjapan you'll need to translate the phrase into Japanese first. --[[User:Purpleflamecyndaquil|Purpleflamecyndaquil]] ([[User talk:Purpleflamecyndaquil|talk]]) 18:03, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
:::::Thanks for the clefairy artwork. i totally did not notice the different clefairy. -[[User:Pokeant|Pokeant]] ([[User talk:Pokeant|talk]]) 06:40, 16 November 2015 (UTC)
:::::Also, the jynx artwork already appeared in Gold Silver guide book. -[[User:Pokeant|Pokeant]] ([[User talk:Pokeant|talk]]) 07:33, 16 November 2015 (UTC)
:Hi there. While this is not about Pokémon, it has to do with Classic Artworks. You managed to find all of those old Pokémon arts. What about human characters, like trainers, gym leaders, elite four, side-characters, etc? Don't you have any way to find the ones yet to be found in here and add them to this grand collection?

::There was trainer artwork in one of the books I used but they were already available on here, though I might upload them since they're bigger than the current uploads. When I looked for the Pokémon artwork I didn't find any new trainer images but since I have some time now, I'll do a search.--[[User:Purpleflamecyndaquil|Purpleflamecyndaquil]] ([[User talk:Purpleflamecyndaquil|talk]]) 00:44, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
