Normally I would just go to the offset of the first sprite (such as Bulbasaur) and just replace all the bytes with a crapload of FF bytes, but if you've placed the sprites randomly throughout the rom that would be harder for me to do.

The main reason why I would do this is because of free space. Alternatively, it would be nice if you could release a patch with no sprites inserted.
I believe a simple python script would suffice to replace all the sprites with FF bytes, as well as dump a list of pointers to repoint [ for use with unlz.gba ]

I like to push it,
