Thanks man! :D I'm happy about getting second too - I actually agree with the results, though, the winning pitch was a lot more imaginative and in-depth than mine (which was basically dark!mainseries, lol. Not really a spinoff). But thanks again!
First, sorry I've been AWOL for a day or so; life = bleh. And on that note my computer underwent the kiss of death yesterday afternoon after a botched install of Mass Effect, and is currently sitting brickily on my desk in no shape to do much of anything. Pile'a junk. I'm typing this on my sister's machine, but that's not got any sort of image editing capabilities save Paint whatsoever.
On a positive note! GIFs are actually really really easy, so all you'd have to do if you need this by a certain date is download GIMP, drop your images in from Explorer, crop 'em, insert a line to the effect of 'created using *Hapuriainen's Pokémon Trainer Creator v2' where it can be clearly seen in all states of the animation (i.e. merge a copy of the text layer onto all the other layers), then just hit 'Save As' and type your .GIF file extension. GIMP should take care of the rest for you. :D
Nice choice - I had a quick play and chuckled a bit at Wailord. As to whether you'll need permission - yes, it would be polite to ask, but there is an FAQ:
Q: Can I post a character I made in your games?
A: Yes, if you put a link back or at least something resembling "I didn't draw this myself" in the artist's comments or wherever you post your pictures.
And I'd be happy to make you a GIF (which I assume is what you're after) of the different characters you create. The only problem is in relation to file size - the resulting animation is naturally going to be as large if not larger than all the images combined, but it's still a GIF and they tend to be fairly little so you shouldn't have too many problems. (What would be nicer would be a Flash file with some interactivity - e.g. buttons to change frames - but I doubt they're embeddable on PC. Tell you what, you can find out for me! :D) Give me a shout once you're done.
considering here the sun is still up and no where near setting I'd say we're in different time zones. well that one pic should be the only one that requires animation. the others can be still frames and still hodl the same relivance.
