This is going to be the thread where I put all of my tutorials. I am hoping to add a few more over the weeks although I am busy with my own hack and school. All of the pictures in my guides are under spoilers.

Ooka's Detailed Walkthroughs
These are for personal use, don't steal them or use them without my consent.
Inserting D/P Pokemon
Let's start by opening the program unLz.GBA.
Spoiler:


Once you have the program open, select open file and find your ROM that you will be editing the pokemon in. In my case I will be using Fire Red.
Spoiler:


Well, I believe the numbers can be different but all of my pokemon's pictures are located from 668-1498, in this tutorial I am going to be adding Chimchar in over Charmander so I am going to select 674.
Spoiler:


Now what you want to do is click Save As.
Spoiler:


Open the picture in Paint or any other Picture editing program as shown.
Spoiler:


Now expand the work size and copy and paste a picture of Chimchar off of the internet. Replace the Charmander with a Chimchar and make it look like this.
Spoiler:

NOTE:It would be safe to save the picture as so that you don't replace the picture of Charmander in case anything happens.

Go back to unlz and click the button import and select the Chimchar picture.
Spoiler:


Click write to ROM and change the settings to the ones in the picture below.
Spoiler:


Select okay and you will have successfully have put a D/P pokemon in your ROM, just remember that the pokemon you are inserting should be really close to the same colors as the one you are replacing. Next I will probably do a walkthrough of how to edit the information in PokeAmp.

Why don't you just edit pallets if you can't find the right replacement. pallet editing is not that hard.

Well, I didn't check the export Palette because I use the same palette as the Charmander when I replace it with a Chimchar.

And, what about re-sizing bigger Pokemon like Lugia? And if it says, "Image not Indexed" What do you do? You need to add those for people that dont know that. Your guide is very basic. I take it the same as Scizz's guide.

Yeah, you have a point Serenade, but I only want to fix up the guide on Vista and my Laptop doesn't have that so I'll probably edit it sometime this weekend.

Oh, and luckyCHARMS, I'm not a female O_o

Well, you have to check "Export palette" For other pokemon like:
Replacing Mewtwo with Palkia, because the colors aren't the same.

You don't necessarily have to find a pokemon with alike colors either.

See what I mean.

DON"T STEAL DIALGA!!!

It might be possible with ASM hacking (CBM would be the one to ask that) but as it stands you can't

That kind of thing usually happens when you the image you use to replace takes a larger amount of space in the 64x64 image. So just check that you don't have any stray pixels around the bottom of the picture.

EDIT: How do you change the small bouncing picture in the Pokemon menu and the back sprite of the Pokemon because in UNLZ you only get the shiny back sprite.
