honestly, MS paint works pretty well for small pixel art. if not that, try photoshop, or GIMP, the free alternative to it.

Paint.net also works. It's free and is often touted as a program on the level of complexity between MS Paint and Photoshop. It's a bit simpler than GIMP but has Photoshop features like layers.
Zelda Gamekit (my project)



Example capxs:

Zelda-Style Inventory

Zelda Health

3-saveslot system

I prefer GraphicsGale and Photoshop for pixel art. GraphicsGale has a free and paid version. The paid version is worth due to the nice animation tools but the interface feels a little weird overall. It's a really good program but there might be better stuff out there for free. Not everyone has access to Photoshop. Krita is supposed to be an amazing open source alternative though I haven't fully played with it.

I have visited many forums and most of them are recommending paint.net with help of its plugins and very much thanks for all for your replies..

I like Cosmigo´s Pro Motion (http://www.cosmigo.com/promotion/index.php), with which you also can animate, create tile maps etc.
It´s not free though (but well worth the money in my opinion).

As for the spriting itself there seem to be some nice tutorials on the pokemon community site:

Godd luck!
