I've seen a few threads resizing Pokemon and Trainer sprites from later generations for use in a Gen 3 hack. I haven't see anything to do with the Pokemon overworld sprites yet, though. So, here it is, the resizing of Pokemon Overworld Sprites.
First up, here's the lowdown of what this is all about:
-All overworld sprites in Gen 3 are 16x16 or 32x32 (Alright that's not strictly true, most Trainers are 16x32, but you get the idea).
-In Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, as well as Black/White/2, the overworld sprites for Pokemon are considerably larger. Notable examples include Giratina, Reshiram, etc.
-I'm resizing these sprites to fit into either 16x16, or 32x32 (Large Pokemon, like most legendaries, will be 32x32; smaller Pokemon, like Shaymin or Victini and most non-legendaries, will be 16x16)
-I don't know if it is possible to add overworld sprites that are bigger than 32x32, I've never tried, but that's not really the point of this. The point is that the overworld sprites used in Gen 3 are 16x16 or 32x32, so it would be quite nice to have some Gen 4/5 ones of the same sizes as well. I find that using the massive sprite of BW Zekrom looks way out of proportion with RSE Groudon.
If you want to help contribute to this, feel free to post your sprites below. However, and I'll just make this a little bigger so you can't miss it, the sprites must obey the guidelines below. It is fine to ask why your sprite wasn't used so you may improve, but please do not spam or bug me both here and in pm's about whether your sprite will be used or not. If the sprite will be used, it will most likely be added to the list below, so there is no need to ask. If I'm not using a sprite, I will usually tell you that I'm not as well as tell you why.
All people who's sprites are used will be credited :3
Ok, so here are the guidelines:
1. If possible (usually the case with non-legendaries/small legendaries), try to get the sprite to fit 16x16. I will make a list of sprites that can be 32x32, although this list may be edited as some non-legendary Pokemon may be too big for 16x16. These will be added in time.
2. After resizing, the sprite MUST be cleaned up. I cannot stress this enough - just resizing will not do. Any posts with resized sprites that are not cleaned up will just be ignored, simple as that.
3. Try to avoid using the DPPt sprites, as they are not really as good quality-wise as the HG/SS ones. A lot of Unova Pokemon do not have overworld sprites, so custom ones will have to be created.
4. Less of a guideline and more of a quick note - every single Pokemon and their forms will need a resized overworld sprite. This includes the ones that already have overworld sprites in RSE, since the HG/SS sprites look much nicer.
Last thing, these sprites are open for anyone to use in their hack. That's what this thread is for.
Actually, this is the last thing - please read this whole block of uninteresting text before posting here, thanks :3
Last last thing, I might add overworld sprites for Trainers eventually. For now though, it's just the Pokemon.
Here's a montage of what I've done so far:
