I'm replacing Charmander with this: if it helps.
I included that in this tutorial if the new sprite's too big.
I also added a video tutorial.
you should follow instructions though. :\

I believe this is what is causing problems for people
Is that so? I should try and see that for myself then. :\
Thanks for the info, though~

It's simple to reverse the sprite you newly inserted if they're too big.
simply delete the [hackname].spr. then open your ROM with a hex editor and go to the offset you used for your new sprite, and erase all the consumed data the sprite used.
but yeah, back-ups are really handy, too.
