Sprite Stitch is both a forum and blog that lists cross stitch patterns based on video game "sprites." There is an archive of many patterns already created, as well as a forum in which users frequently create patterns for others based on requests.
This is a wonderful place to go to see amazing cross stitch projects! Many people post their finished products that will just make your jaw drop. One example is the below, a project stitched by inkdnjabd that contains all of the original pokemon.

Another step that you have to take in KG-Stitch is to "erase" all the background stitches. The background of the photo was imported and read as white stitches, so you must use the erase tool to remove those stitches and to get an accurate count.
I am currently stitching the outline of this pattern and will post a progress picture soon!
