    Hey this is WINGZRO17.
    I'm gonna teach you how to edit the backsprite(hero) of Pokemon FIRE RED.



    First off, you need these:
    VBA
    APE
    TILE MOLESTER ALTERNATE (Get it from ZOPHAR's DOMAIN)
    (ALSO, keep a zip file of it. It likes to crash right after it uses a rom.)
    Spoiler:
    (EDIT: I found a way to keep it from crashing after you used a rom on it:
    1. - Goto resources in the folder of TMA[TILE MOLESTER ALTERNATE].
    2. Delete the file that has your ROM name on it.[In the folder RESOURCES ; It's a XML document]
    And.. TADA! It's fixed!)

    A FIRE RED ROM
    A PALETTE OF YOUR SPRITE(I used Brendan's from ruby.)
    A PICTURE(BMP,GIF,ECT) OF YOUR SPRITE(BRENDAN'S ^_^)

    I think that's just about it...




    Step 1 - Palette Editing(You don't need to, but it's nice to.)



    First off, get into a battle:

    Spoiler:


    Then goto:
    Spoiler:


    After that Save the OBJ:
    Spoiler:


    Make sure it's Paintshop PAL
    Spoiler:


    Next, open up APE and search for you palette(if you do, you'll come up with two offsets: the second one is the backsprite.)....or
    Since I'm nice, I'll give you the offset(Sorry, only hero's offset)
    Spoiler:
    00E76EBC - Make sure this is compressed palette.(This is not the palette of the Trainer Card's Sprite)


    I'll replace the hero's pallete with brendan's pallete...

    Spoiler:


    P.S. It's a good idea to save the palette as a TLP palette after you replaced it. We're gonna need it.



    Part 2 - Editing the Sprite:





    Now, open TMA(TILE MOLESTER ALTERNATE)

    Now goto offset(I think it's NAVIGATE - GOTO or just press CTRL+G)
    Spoiler:
    E69F00


    Spoiler:


    As you see it's...Well....Erm....kinda messed up

    So time to fix it!

    First:
    Spoiler:

    Spoiler:


    Then:
    Spoiler:


    So you see it's fixed.

    Now goto PALETTE - IMPORT FORM - ANOTHER FILE
    Spoiler:


    Import your palette file
    Spoiler:
    Remember before when I said save the palette of your new sprite as a TLP? Well now's the time to use it!
    .....And look! Pretty!
    Spoiler:


    So then we goto VIEW - BLOCK GRID AND....
    Spoiler:


    Yay! Were almost done!

    Now: EDIT - PASTE FROM....
    Spoiler:


    And select your file...
    Spoiler:


    WHOA!
    Spoiler:


    Now fix....
    Spoiler:


    W0000t! (DON'T forget to SAVE)

    Now for the finished product....
    Spoiler:

    xP Meh. Good enough...


    Congrats, you did it!

    I hope this tutorial helps.

          Ehh.... Nope.
          You need to use UnLZ-GBA and edit it there. I'm not really an expert with Ruby hacking, so you should ask someone else or search.

            just with different offsets.

                                  well idk.
                                  There's one way of finding it,
                                  you just go into to battle with the female trainer, and save the palette.
                                  VBA>Battle as girl>Tools>Palette viewer>Save OBJ>.pal file(paintshop)
                                  Then search it in APE.(I think compressed.)
                                  There is a number of offsets, but just replace them all with your new palette, I did that since the palette of my backsprite is the same as the palette of my trainercard sprite.
                                  If you find it please post it so I can put it in the thread.
                                  Thanks.

                                              Nice tutorial! This helps me inserting Lucas and Dawn backsprite.
                                              Does someone know the offset of the heroine?

                                              The offset of the heroine is:

                                                Hello.

                                                In Fire Red, I tried replacing Doduo's Palette with Lucario's colours. After I got all of Lucario's colours into the Palette, and I clicked replace, it seemed to work fine, but when I went to Doduo in UnLZ, it had different colours from what it was supposed to. Help please.
