Sixth. Save it as a different name then the other one (Preferablly save the first image as -Pokemon Name- Un, and the second one -Pokemon Name- In, Un standing for Unindexed, In standing for Indexed, Unindexed was before we changed the color depth and pallete, Indexed is after we did)

Seventh. So now you should have something two files named something like -Pokemon Name- Un and -Pokemon Name- In, when you open the Indexed one in paint it will look screwed up,Open up a second paint and do this CTRL+A select all and CTRL+C copy it, paste the Unindexed version of it in the Indexed Version of it and save it and delete the unindexed file
