Pretty good, this helped me to create many shiny versions
of custom pokemon i created.

May i give a suggestion?

It should be a great help if you have time, mood and want to,
make a pokemon cry changer.
A tool that can import/export custom pokemon cries.

If you do this for Fire Red English version I will name my first born son if I have one after you. (So I'll need your real name... XD)

Too big maybe? Trying shrinking it to 80% original size, see if that helps...

Nah, it's nothing to do with the size (well, it shouldn't be...)
I uploaded a new version just now, in which I fixed a possible bug in the sprite editor. Try using that to replace the sprite. If that doesn't work, then take a screenshot of the editor when you're on the Snorlax sprite, and I'll see if I can figure out what went wrong.

I would try to make a cry editor, but I have no idea on how cries are stored in the ROM. I found a document which might help, but I haven't looked into it yet.

I found the bug causing onyx79's problem. It's in the 'Save all changes' function of the sprite editor. So whatever you do, don't use it unless you want to screw up your ROM :P

I'll have it fixed in the next release, which should be some time this week.

When you open Emerald, and use the up- and down-buttons to switch to the second frame, it gives an "Index is outside of matrix boundaries"-error. When you type in the frame number, and press Enter, the error doesn't appear. This happens both in the main window, as in the Edit Sprite window. Same error appears when you press "Synchronise palettes".
Though in both cases, the thing you're trying to do does happen. It does switch to the second frame, and it does synchronise the palettes, but it gives the error. :\
Frankly, though the error is harmless, it's very annoying to get it all the time.

Now that's just ironic, because I just clicked the 'Save all changes' and then you post this. O.o
It's a good thing I kept a backup

Think you could implement pokemon name writing in Your apps?
Since you already can read them, surely you could write them.
None of the other pokemon editors have pictures of the pokemon (atleast none of them that support name changing...)
so i thought it would be nice if you could, just so were not switching between YAPE/PEP and one of your apps when we rename pokemon.
As i said, it should be fairly simple for you...seeing as you've been able to do all that work using pallettes... O_O

Yeah, I just added it telepathically. Check the File menu.
Hint: it was there all along

Is it really that hard to guess the Pokémon's name by its stats/moves?
I guess I could make a table showing which species number is which Pokémon. It's pointless to make a tool for that kind of problem (that is, unless anyone else is interested).

...no that's not what i meant
Your program doesn't automatically change the stats unless i'm some sort of cuckoo...
If i'm changing the names, obviously thats because it's a different pokemon, if it's a different pokemon then odds are the stats will be different,so going by the stats to base your pokemons new name doesn't make much sense. UNLESS you work the other way around, and do your stats first, in which case i would go ahead and just edit the name with whatever tool i was using to edit the stats....

Gotta say I really do love this tool, very nice and simple to use. There seems to be only 1 problem so far, when ever I import a sprite it doesnt take the Pallet with it. So basically if say I import a Gundam sprite it gains the color of what ever Pokemon I replaced. This is quite the problem for the more complex sprites that I want to use.

That's not what I meant either :P

Surely you should be changing the stats first, before changing the sprite? Why do you need a Pokémon name editor to show the Pokémon's sprite?

In the sprite editor, you have to click the 'Synchronise Palettes' button to get the palette from the imported sprite.

No, it trims them down to 64x64. As far as I know, it's impossible to use bigger sprites without serious ASM hacking, which I doubt anyone here can do.

as i said, it would just be a convenience.
Either way, i found a bug last night with the sprite editor.
If you try to replace the sprite of a corrupted sprite, the program will not replace the backsprite, but it will occasionally do the frontsprite.
It tells me the data is uncompressed like it should, but if you try to insert and repoint, the sprite editor does not take that kindly. Just so you know. Obviously anyone else who has this problem should just insert with unlz and repoint using pep for the time being

New version: it should now let you edit corrupted sprites. Also, I fixed a bug which caused it to occasionally refuse to give your sprite the correct palette, and added a batch import function to the sprite editor.
