Reviews for "A Pokemon Bike Ride"

I do not mean to be harsh here but I really do not thing that this should be on the front page but oh well, good job on getting front page. Now time for the criticism...criticism is good for the soul~

-nice animation in the beginning(compared to other beginning works I have seen)
-good artwork
-not bad audio

-the ending animation skipped frames some
-no real point to what is going on and no point to what the guy is even saying, he is just narrating himself basically
-sound effects sounded like they were all done with your mouth
-the ending had almost nothing to do with the video
-the comedy really needs work

Hopefully you change some things that will help you in your future works but the animation was well done for your first animation, keep up the good work and I hope to see you in the future on Newgrounds again.

Thanks for taking the time to write a critique! And yeah I'd agree completely with you, this was mostly just getting to grips with everything about flash and trying to put it into some coherent publishable form, so I kinda purposefully bit off more than I could chew. And also I had fun with the sound effects ^^

cranked up the sound, and i still couldn't hear a thing. poor quality

ThatGoatface responds:

That's you, not the animation.

It started off okay... but the entire last half of the movie was just a big "what the heck is going on?". I didn't like it. The voices and animation were okay but it just didn't make sense, and it seemed pretty crude.

The grass appears to 'jump' every once in a while at the beginning. I really didn't like the sudden sound at the end. Video didn't seem to make sense at all either...bike riding and suddenly -dead pokemon-, and then riding again. I would say that this shouldn't be rated T because of the blood.

ThatGoatface responds:

Yes, getting the grass to loop effectively was a frustrating little issue, I kinda just gave up at the end to be honest, and yes it is everywhere at once with no real tangible line of story, probably me trying to ram too many ideas in there. Thanks for the constructive review though!

Fail, Brendan does not have white hair. That's a knit hat. His real hair color is black.

Well, I guess I better kill myself now
