    Ah I see why it's hard then...Could the pokédex problem be fixed by a gfx hack to make the box where they're shown bigger or do you mean they wouldn't show up properly? I take it that it would it be the same for the trainer sprites?

    I'll probably just leave it then and just resize any sprites I need to, but anyway, thank you all for the help, it's appreciated.
