Niantic should provide an option to use 8-bit Pokémon sprites in Pokémon GO

On March 31 2018, as a part of their April Fools joke, Niantic Labs has released a set of 8-bit Pokémon sprites for Pokémon GO. These sprites are very reminiscent of old handheld games and provoke a strong notion of nostalgia for many Pokémon GO players.

We hereby petition Niantic to create an in-game switch that allows players to choose which sprite set to use: normal or 8-bit sprite sheet. Given that the art assets for an 8-bit sprite sheet already exist, this petition should be a minimum burden on Niantic's development process and future releases.
