Well.. I can't make a poll anymore.. So, if you guys want the new tutorial I'll make it.
Btw, here's a screen with the edited pallete:

You can do all this in just 5~10minutes..

Btw, I could make the tutorial now, without screens.
It would only be ~15lines long I think


@Black Lugia:
Please, just check Google or some ROM hacking websites.. - -'

If you don't see it today, you'll have to wait till tomorow (31th of July).
But then you have to wait for a mod to accept it.
I remember foulumps script tutorial took quite a while for it to come up so people don't get your hopes up to high.

Well.. We had connection problems today, and the weather was nice.. so I went outside and din't made that tutotorial.
But, because of that, I'm gonna post the tutorial with screens made on Vista (so that's nice )
Anyway, if you guys get your tools ready, you'll see the tutorial later today (much later ).

This is what you'll need:
Spoiler:
- UnLZ-GBA
- Cyclone
- VisualBoyAdvance
- Advanced Pallete Editor
- MS Paint(-like program)
- FR-US ROM [POKEMON FIREBPRE01]

Foreword
In this tutorial we're gonna change the FireRed titlescreen completely!
In this tutorial we're going to replace the Charizard with a Pokémon or trainer sprite we find in the game.
We're also going to change the Pokémon and Version-logo's position.
And -MEH- just read on..


What you'll need:

- Some patience
- UnLZ-GBA
- Cyclone
- Advanced Pallete Editor
- MS Paint or someting like that
- FireRed (US) ROM [POKEMON FIREBPRE01]
- VisualBoyAdvance


Takeoff!
Ok, open your ROM in UnLZ and look for a sprite you want to use.
[I'm gonna use the Scientist-sprite (#1606).]
// Pokémon Sprites {668»1498} | Trainer Sprites {1499»1646}
Found your sprite? Good, now push "Save as..." and save the sprite.
Done, good.. before we go on, please write down the pallete offset and number.
Now, in UnLZ-GBA goto "2011". If you have the same FR ROM than I have, you'll see (something like) this.
Yeah, you're right.. this is the Charizard from the titlescreen, a lil' messed up, but we don't care.
I hope you remember the pallete number form your sprite? Well, enter the number and push "Select Pal".
The colors of the Charizard will change to the ones from your sprite (DUH).
Now, push "Save as..." and save your picture.
Okido, now open your saved 'Charizard' in Paint and fill the picture with the background-color.
[8/10 times it's that green color.]
Now, this is for Paint only, do "Edit - Paste from..." and select your saved sprite.
It should load in the upper left corner. Just leave it there and save your image.
[Save it as a 24-bit .BMP]
Done? Ok, import your new image in UnLZ-GBA. Hit "Write to ROM" to save.
[Make sure auto-abort is checked, if the image is too big, it won't write to the ROM.]
-- [If it is too big, please read "Too big?"]
The image is saved to the ROM, so hit "Next".
You'll see a messed up something.. We need to dump it, so hit "Raw Dump".
Ok, I think it's time to open Cyclone and start 'editing' the Charizard's TileMap.
Follow exactly the steps on the screen.
[1. Select that saved .BMP | 2. Make sure you selected pallete 14 | 3. Select that saved RAW]
-- [It's possible you need to change the FileType before you see your files]
You'll get a messed up picture on the right, just fill everything with the green color.
Ok, now you need to 'map' the sprite from the left to the right, tile by tile.
[The right picture 'emulates' the screen, where you put it there it's shown ingame]
-- [This will take the most time to do]
When you're done, save your new tilemap, make sure you save ass RAW.
Back in UnLZ-GBA, still at 2012 load your RAW. [File - Load RAW...]
Hit "Write to ROM", make sure Auto-Abort is checked and see if it's bigger or not.
It is? Read "Too big?". | It isn't? You're lucky!
Ok, do you want to see if you did it right? Open your ROM in VBA then.
[Looks like I did well...]
... but the colors are messed up! Don't, worry, we'll handle that.
Open your ROM in APE and go to that pallete offset you wrote down. [I hope you still have it!]
[When you used a Pokémon or Trainer sprite make sure you check "Compressed Pallete"]
You'll see the colors of the sprite.. right? Hit the "Copy" button. [The pallete will be copied to the bottom, see?]
Now, load the pallete at offset "00EAD5E8", this is the Charizard pallete.
[Uncheck the "Compressed Pallete" option]
When it's loaded, just hit "Replace" and your done! Check your work again in VBA.
Done, see?

Arrgghhh.. I'm sick you know, and this tutorial s*cks!
Really, I want to start over.. anyway, you now know how it works, don't you?
I want to add more things too.. but -MEH-


Too big?
Open your ROM in a HEX Editor.
Look for a lot of FFs or 00s.
Found a lot of FFs or 00s? Look at the offset and copy it.
In that lil' popup in UnLZ-GBA when you hit "Write to ROM" replace the "Image Offset" with your new one.
UNchek Auto-abort and check Auto-fix.
Hit OK and everything should be fine when you load your ROM..


-MEH-
I'm gonna make a better one later.. I'm just tired and have a headache, too long in the sun, you know?
I'm really sorry guys, but I promissed (and obligated myself) I'll post it today, so.

I did mine wrong in cyclone!
Ah well I'll try again i was tired and it was late at night when i tried so that could have been what happend!

Edit: I realised what it is! It's the offset 2011 when i insert my image i save it give it an empty offset found in hex workshop! And it just won't save!!! I make sure auto abort is unchecked it loads then i check it again and it isn't saved!!!
I'm trying to put milotic on it!

Edit2: Yes it worked now to pallete edit it!
Edit3: Well everything worked out perfectly i will post my results later!

Edit4 o.0 : Well as i prommised my results!!!
Spoiler:


Well my milotic is a bit far to the side and my Darc is a bit messy but other than that i like it!

I have a problem..
I tried this several times;
the first time, it just came up with a screwed up Charizard;
the second, it completely deleted Charizard;
and the third bore similar results as the second.
Could you help me?

Also, If you don't mind, could you tell where the background is. (For the title; the fire stuff going up behind charry.)

i dont understand 'Too big?
Open your ROM in a HEX Editor.
Look for a lot of FFs or 00s.
Found a lot of FFs or 00s? Look at the offset and copy it.
In that lil' popup in UnLZ-GBA when you hit "Write to ROM" replace the "Image Offset" with your new one.
UNchek Auto-abort and check Auto-fix.
Hit OK and everything should be fine when you load your ROM..'

FF's and 00's wtf?
