Hey, I been trying to get a picture of Piplup to replace Bulbasaur on Unlz GBA. I saved the Bulbasaur picture, and I did not put the Piplup picture on the saved file of the Bulbasaur picture as it makes its colour go green.



So I added Piplups picture from a differant file onto Bulbasaurs place and it goes like this.



Explained to the best of my ability.

Emerald has animations too so you have to find the animations (somewhere at 600) put the palette of the pokémon you want and export it. Then put the sprites on the image and insert it back.

Use Irfan View to index your sprites.

The same way you edit the Pokémon sprites in this tutorial.

(I'm using a Fire Red rom)

I find the Pokemon image, replace it with an idexed image with the same dimensions, write the rom and point the offset to empty space. Nothing happens and I have the same Pokemon as before.

Why? What's going on?

Here are indexed sprites by *Neos*:
The backsprites have to be in that palette, in the game they'll be normally colored.

You can tick "Automatically fix pointers" when you write the sprite to the ROM or not point the offset to emtpy space.

Download IrfanView, open your sprite, Image > Decrease Color Depth > choose 16 colors and save it. The sprite will be indexed and ready for inserting in unLZ.

Well, I can import the sprite now, but the bottom part of it is all messed up with horizontal lines on it.

What settings should be used for Export Pallette/Image?
