EDIT: Well, problem solved. Seriously, use the Advanced Series tools to do this rather than PEP, SOOOO much easier.
I'm still having trouble with the back sprite palette.
I've placed the palette offset in the "Shiny Palette" field in PEP to no avail, and Korronensu's solution on page 4 resulted in a prompt crash when I sent out my Pokemon. Could someone walk me through the process of changing the offset with RS Ball?
Otherwise, AWESOME tutorial!

While I'm editing my sprite's pallete properties, it doesn't give me the option to define custom colors. What should I do?

When I did this it said Image is not indexed, what did I do wrong?

@Seth: follow the instructions carefully and you won't have this issue. It says not indexed because you didn't decrease the colour depth, switch the pallettes or copy the old picture onto the new one. Lacking any one of those three will cause the error.

I followed the exact instructions, yet am having the same issues Seth was having.. it gives me the Image is not indexed issue too. (I also tried adding a custom pokémon in another way, that gave me the same issue. Might be the program?)

Also, might I ask what the copying on top of each other is for? By copying the old one and pasting it over the new one, doesnt this just make a copy of the old one? I don't believe MS Paint has layers, or am I wrong?

(If it helps, I am using a Firered ROM-hack (Not that that should matter), and trying to replace 1507 and 1508 (chansey). What's weird is I can import the inverted version, but not the copied over version)

EDIT: Hmm, even when I use a program like GIMP to add a new layer, it doesn't work... very weird

Good tut, but hard to decide when you have to replace Pokemon because the only ones worth replacing are weak . _.?

I had the same problem as others. "Image not indexed" but I could use the inverted image, which is no help. What version of Paint were you using, as I was using Windows 7 paint and I feel like that's where the problem lies.

Also, your image was only around 700bytes but mine was just over 2000. That can't be right...

Alright! This tut helped me a lot! I was able to add a custom pokemon from one hack to FR, I'm very pleased with that. But I have one problem: it was adding the back sprite for the pokemon. I used mew as a base for the sprite (along with the shiny pallet) And The front came in fine, however my first try to add the back with the regular pallet it looked all... trippy to best explain it. When I put the code for the shiny back (after reading through everyones comments) it came out better, but it was extremely albino looking. Any idea on how to make the little guy actually pink?
Now that I'm all alone I can just sit and reeeeela.... ah crap.

This is good, but I'm having problems. I was trying to add Honchkrow, but it said "ERROR: image is not indexed." Also, the sprite looks glitchy. Lastly, can you point in the direction of editing the cry?

You have to index your sprite. Go take a look on indexing sprites tut also go find changing cry tut too.

Guys there's much better methods now. If you have fire red you can add without taking any off, and even if you don't, you can use advanced series which is many times better at doing this.
