Xerneas animated sprite by ekurepu Xerneas animated sprite by ekurepu
Many people asked for a sprite of Xerneas. It took me some time, but here it is :)

I tried to give him a majestic feel, and as you can see I took some liberties and animated the colored antlers, because I thought it would give the sprite a little more life

Strangely I found it a lot harder to animate than Yveltal, but I somehow managed to finish it. I hope you like it :)

It's been suggested. :P The static version of this sprite does not fit in 96x96, and the animation style is not the same as Gen. V's. It's a wonderful sprite, certainly, but it's unfortunately not what the project is looking for.

Oh my, another great animated Sprite!
I dunno why, but Xerneas animation remembers me a bit of Keldeos second form where it also jumps up shortly.
Still, amazing animation!

This is amazing. Xerneas is my favorite Legendary so far. This made me happy to see. Just a suggestion you should sprite for some simulators. They'd love to use your work for when the 6th gen games come out. 
Just a suggestion. :D

Anyways, thanks for mesmerizing me for the past 5 minutes with this sprite.

Thanks! 

Someone already told me battle simulators were looking for spriters for the 6th gen pokemons, but I think I'll stick to pixeling the pokemons I like most :D
