I'm just curious but did you insert all the sprites at offsets right next to each other, or in random free space locations in the rom? Because if I ever use this, I'm probably going to re-insert all the sprites since I absolutely cannot stand shrunken sprites that haven't been cleaned up properly. 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 ]
