In order to be a Pokemon spriter, you need access to Pokemon sprites! Here are some links to places where you can get all kinds of sprites.
- The Spriter's Resource - This site has all kinds of sprites from almost all of the Pokemon games! From the actual Pokemon sprites to menu templates to trainers, you can find basically any sprite you want here.
- TCoD's Sprite Generator - If you don't know what sprite to work with (or don't feel like sifting through 600+ sprites to find the one you want) this is a great tool. It's what I use when I'm in the mood to fuse some random Pokemon.
