Continuing with the Pokemotion Challenge (which may or may not be coming along slowly XD)

Here is Raticate! And it may or may not be trying to impress you!
Best watch out for those normal types, you never know what moves they know!

MAN! This took me way too long! And for good reason, I kinda got ambitious with this guy (its over 12 seconds long, which winds up being over 300 frames! WHAT.)
Mad respect for Raticate though, for serious, can you guys guess the moves its using here?

Wow, the movements are so smooth! I'm a beginner animator and the problem I encounter most is keeping the size continuous throughout the frames.. Any tips? I'd be really grateful ^^

Awesome! Its great talking to fellow animators and I'd be happy to help you out where I can! :D
Thats a very common problem is trying to have consistency between frames, many animators use a method called tweening in order to acheive conformity throughout an animation. If you just draw from the beginning frame through to the last frame in order you might go off model slowly, tweening is a good way to avert that.

So tweening is simple, you draw the first frame and the last frame and then you do the inbetweens (see, tweens!) If you were doing this on paper, you'd have a light table or light box and that lets you see through your paper to the other drawings, so you can kinda draw out your in between frame to the right size. You can simulate this in something like Sai or Photoshop by just lowering the opacity of the first and last frames (on their layers) so you can still see them and draw your character in the right size.

So doing that will give you the first, last and middle frames. So you do it again with the first and middle and the middle and last, and keep doing the frames in between until its all nice and fluidy.

And wow, sorry for the essay there! I hope you understood that! I might sit down and do a tutorial or something if that was too complicated (and if people would be interested in that!)

Wow thank you! I didn't expect such a great explanation :D It's great that your willing to teach! I know a little about tweening but that just cleared it all up for me, thanks ^^ I haven't practised with it much except for blinking so it's great to know I can use it for larger things too :D And it'd be awesome to a see a tutorial from you, your animations are so pro looking! ^^ I'll be looking forward to them if you do make some :la: Thanks again!

Yea, true, but normal type can be sucky with some random special moves. I remember in Pokemon Blue version, I taught Wiggletuff fireblast, blizzard, solarbeam, and thunder, and she doesn't put much fight.:no:

I don't know all of them but I know that there is Minimize, Attract (or charm?) and bubblebeam :) Not sure what the rolling / punching upward is, as it has no effects. I'm not an expert on moves ^.^'
