Epic Pokemon Generation 1 Cross Stitch Complete by lizardlea Epic Pokemon Generation 1 Cross Stitch Complete by lizardlea
Pattern (which I did NOT create!): [link]

This took 130 days with 914 hours of work. (Okay, way less hours than that because I was constantly stopping but that's what got written down.) This means it took me less than one day to do a single Pokemon - I averaged about 6 hours per Pokemon.

Want to commission me? Send me a note and we can discuss! (No, I will not do something this big, it's insane!)
Here's my Etsy shop: [link]

If you like the original Pokemon music and this cross-stitch, you should find some enjoyment out of me in this:

Hi, I'm thinking of making this as a gift, but I have never cross stitched before. I've done all my research, and have the pattern, but is it alright if I ask you a few questions?

I've heard of half stitch and quarter stitches; does this pattern have any of that? Is it entirely cross stitch, those "x" stitches? I've taken a closer look at the original design and all the symbols confuse me. I know they may be just the color symbols, but I want to make sure. Thanks for your time.

You should definitely work on a small project first just to make sure you enjoy doing it. Jumping into a big one only to learn you hate it will be disappointing.

And for that, nope, this pattern has no half or quarter stitches. Every single stitch is a full one because the designer used the original Pokemon pixels which are all full squares/boxes/etc. All of the symbols are only for the corresponding color so you don't need to worry about that. :) There also isn't any back-stitching so you don't have to outline anything. The project itself is actually pretty easy as far as complexity goes but it is VERY big and time consuming -- and costly.

Thank you so much for the reply. I'll take your advice and try something small first.

Well done!!!!  I'm working on this one right now too!  Top down, i'm on ekans and pickachu right now.  been a long haul.  I did notice that the pattern called for DMC 947 for things like voltorb, but found that color 666 worked much better.  947 is too orange, imo.  guess that'll make my finished project really mine eventually.  :)

Thank you very much! :)
Ooooh, good luck! I hope you've been enjoying it so far and stick to it for the long run! :D There were a lot of times when working that I thought another color would work better. The only color that, now with it being finished, that I regret not changing was Dratini and the background. Seriously, that color IS Dratini's! ; w;
