But there aren't back sprites for Gen 5 Pokemon that are really usable considering the change to fully body backs. That's part of the reason that I decided to only resize the front sprites when absolutely necessary for my project, simply because I wanted to minimize the workload for myself. After we have usable sprites for the new Pokemon, then we can go back and work on the old ones to maintain a consistent style.
    Here are all the Gen IV Pokemon that have a different backsprite in Platinum:
    Spoiler:

    *Infernape
    *Staraptor
    *Kricketune
    *Luxio
    *Luxray
    *Budew
    *Cranidos
    *Burmy
    *Floatzel
    *Buneary
    *Lopunny
    *Purugly
    *Chingling
    *Bronzor
    *Bronzong
    *Bonsly (2 pixel diference)
    *Gabite
    *Lucario
    *Toxicroak
    *Lumineon
    *Weavile (just the eyes)
    *Lickilicky
    *Rhyperior
    *Magmortar
    *Togekiss
    *Yanmega
    *Leafeon
    *Gliscor
    *Porygon-Z
    *Rotom
    *Mesprit
    *Palkia
    *Heatran
    *Phione
    *Manaphy
    *Darkrai

    Some of these are shading improvements, like Toxicroak, while others fix incorrect anatomy, like Palkia's mouth and Luxray's ears. And yes, I've changed my priority to Gen IV.
