Things you'll need:
GimP. 2.0-2.4.
a D/P sprite(I used coronis Blue D/P sprite)
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v103/Coronis/Pokemon/Sprites/Blue.png
Step 1:
Open the D/P Sprite of Blue(or anyone else).
Click the resize tool.

Step 2:
put it to 64x64,
Then you're done... right?
No.

Step 3
copy the resized image and go into paint, and paste it.
View 8x and edit the blur parts(the outlining of it is a bit screwed up,so refix the outline to the black color instead of grayish.)

Now you're done and ready to insert!
Finished Product:

The problem with your tutorial is that when you zoom in on your finished product, it turns out that you're adding a bunch of colors that'll surpass the 16-color palette in hacks.

Look at all those shades of grey! It'd be a pain to remove those...

If you used my D/P Resizing Tutorial (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=140836) you'd get better results.

All the pixelation is gone!

I'm not trying to sound rude, but it saves the person a lot of time rather than going through later and removing all those excess pixels. :3
