Spriting is a regular hobby many members of Route 50 do. They mostly sprite fusions of Pokemon, recolours, and revamps of the old sprites of Pokemon. Not to say Pokemon is the only thing they sprite. Although it is the main one. Because of this craze spreading around Route 50 that will soon infest everyone, there are even sprite contests opening up, although it should be rephrased as one at the moment, the only contest being held by Coolio, who is a spriter herself. Obviously, spriting is another thing besides roleplaying that keeps the community alive... sort of.
SOMEONE EDIT THIS, IT SUCKS.
I just did. Be jelly.
