Thanks for the feedback, the numbering issue is probably fixed right now and the formes are added today (see the video below). Gender differences haven't been added and I'm not sure if I will add them in the future since I'm unable to batch process the file names.

True. It isn't a very big deal with most of the sprites, but sprites like Charizard, Zapdos and more big Pokémon like these tend to go outside the boxes on the Pokedex screen or even go off-screen. I am thinking about how to fix this though. The only idea I have at the moment is using static sprites for the menus and animated for the battle scenes. Got to figure out how I should edit the scripts in Essentials first.

Well, I have worked on the kit today and I am pleased to say that all formes but the B2W2 ones have been added. The B2W2 ones show some errors, I guess that's due to the .gif files being corrupted, so I have to look that up tomorrow. Aside from that, it's an enormous step to the final release of this kit, Ultimate BW Pack 7.

Here's a video that shows the new forms:


Also, should I add B2W2 content? I'd like to hear your opinions on this.

First of all, really thanks for the Ultimate BW pack. I think that making the boxes slighty bigger could help (but I do not know if this possible without making new graphics) and yes, I would love B2W2 contents
Sorry for my english

Love the remix song, sprites look great too. I'm fine with not adding gender differences visually, but would we not at least need to include duplicate files with the names corrected? As it stands, if I encounter a female pokemon that would normally be gender differenced, it looks for (arbitrary number) 27f.gif rather than 27.gif, and that causes it to revert to the static sprite.

Yes! I would love to see Black 2 and White 2 content! Good luck fixing what is wrong with the sprites from them though. You are doing a really great job on this. Keep up the great work P-Sign!

Magnificent work, magnificent sprites, and everything except the download link.

I think you should upload it to the Mediafire or some else sites which don't require to buy Premium account.

I would be truly grateful if you change the download link :D

This site doesn't require a premium account and works like a charm.
Also, good job on the BW pack p-sign!

The same thing happened to me. Just make a free account on the site, and you can download it anyway, even though it says premium is needed

The download link is dead and won't work. I've registered and all that but it won't download because it says it is invalid.

Please can you submit a new link? Even if it is on mediafire or rapidshare.

I got you guys covered. c:

P-Sign, this is hosted on my site, so let me know if/when you want me to take it down. Just figured I'd bridge the gap so people aren't downloadless.

Being that this pack doesn't modify the scripts at all, I can see no reason that owuld happen. It's worked just fine for me. o.o

P-Sign, I'm afraid the backsprite shiny numbering issue is still a, well, issue.
For instance, I have a Shiny Venonat, but it displays as a Shiny Parasect because Parasect's Shiny backsprite was mislabebled under Venonat's number, and Venonat under Venomoth's, and so on.

This might be related to a bug with pokemon essentials. It was posted in the report bugs and errors section, and got fixed. If you upgraded to version 8 before the bug was fixed thats probably your problem. changing the sprites could not effect something like exp.

*Checks* Ah, I see. Looks like the backsprite of a Shiny Abra sneaked into my Batch processor. Will fix it tonight after dinner, so I guess it's up in three hours.

EDIT:
I contacted the host of my website and it's okay to host the pack there. I've got some difficulties with uploading it though so it isn't on there right now. I did fix the problem though.

I noticed in some of the other posts it was mentioned that some of the back sprites weren’t positioned proply in battle because of the size of the gif or something. for example tepig, you can only see his ears.

I’ve tried repositioning them in the editor itself but after a couple i get this error and then loss the positions that ive changed
Spoiler:


i was wondering if there was an easier way to do this.

The sprites are positioned and resized correctly for use with Essentials 7 and up so I don't think you have to do it ;)

I think I have shiny overworlds for all Gens 1-4, and I have normal overworlds for Gen 5. If someone wants to recolor them, I could provide them.

P-Sign. I did shiny overworlds for B/W pokemon. It's in my pack right now. I can help by doing shiny of the official ones.

Hey Guys!

I was wondering if someone had this very same pack but with the STATIC versions of the sprites. I know it looks nice and all, but honestly to have a folder that's more than 200mb on just the pokemon is something i don't find attractive at all. I don't want to end up with a game that's over 1gb.

I downloaded the pack when it featured the resized static sprites, but lost it with my old PC Does anyone have it? P-Sign? anyone? The sprites are very pretty, but i don't need that extra weight the animation gives.

Thanks for this awesome contribution, btw, P-Sign!
