Visual Appeal (_ /10)
Does it look nice?
Is the art high fidelity? (beyond just a quick/crude sketch)
Is it clean and presented well?
Creativity & Effort (_ /10)
Was a lot of thought put in? (Go beyond sticking different styled eyes on it or something)
Are the perceived flaws of the original addressed in the improved version?
Recognizability (_ /10)
Can you still tell it's the same Pokemon just by looking?
Does it maintain some integrity of the original's concept (changing Pikachu from a Mouse to a Monkey for example isn't so much an improvement as it is a replacement)
Does it fit in well with existing Pokemon? Does it still look like a Pokemon?
