    Okay, update on my situation. Aparently the only problem I get is when I need to insert a back sprite and it tries to load it. I'll post my back sprite here, and can someone try replacing bulbasaur in FR, and using him?
    HEre's the sprite:


    Just try inserting it over bulbasaurs back sprite in FR, then selecting bulbasaur and begin the fight with gary

          Questions:
          How to change the color of the back sprite? Because when I tried on my rom, it has a shiny color.
          Why is it blurred and small :-)

            Hey DJG, to make the sprite appear right in unLZ (so it isn't the original Pokemon if you repointed in the new palette) delete the .spr and the .pal files and then the Pokemon's image should appear find But it may be in a new position in unLZ :\

            after you inserted your front sprite together with it's color, you don't have to insert the backsprites alelte 'cause you already done that with the front sprite...

            Oh, well there's a refresh if you forgot
            My friend keeps trying this tut but whenever he does it and he goes to the sprite in-game, the game freezes. What could be causing that, he did all the steps that you did but it doesn't work :\

              Hi Jagold. I would like to say thank you for creating an awesome game which is Pokemon Ruby Destiny: Reign of Legends. I love the game so much. I recently changed the sprite of your Shadow Lugia with a custom sprite I found on the net.

              But I am having a problem with it. The sprite appears okay within the pokedex but appears distorted when in battle. I could provide a screenshot but since this is my first post, I am not allowed to do a direct linking to other sites. I could send it to you via e-mail if you need to see it. This is my e-mail address; [email protected]

              By the way, you can use the sprite for any of your project. No need to credit me or anything. I just hope you could help me out here.

              I am from Malaysia BTW.

              Maybe he did something wrong during the process, or he accidentally overwrote an offset which was used by the ROM...
              It could also be possible that the failed to repoint it successfully...

              Hm...
              What may be the problem?
              How could it be okay in the dex, since there's no Nat. Dex in the game?

                Hahah, thanks so much for this.
                When I insert my sprites I always use Pokepic.
                Is that the same thing?
                Oh, and I never really used a Free Space Finder. :p
                Hopefully this works now

                  Sorry for not explaining. I used a cheat code to complete my pokedex. Actually the picture in the "Summary" of pokemon appears okay. But like I said, the battle sprite I mean, the back sprite is distorted (the color is weird). Is there a tutorial to change the back sprite? or changing the palette correctly?

                  Edit:

                  Thanks for replying 874521 and Jagold. I tried to do an experiment again today. I managed to import my custom Dark Lugia back sprite into my rom. It came out perfect during battle. But when I import the front sprite into the rom, the front sprite color is distorted. If I do the front sprite first, then the back sprite is distorted. So, what I did is put in the same RGB values for both front and back sprite (I mean the palette) but this time the front sprite is distorted and the back sprite is fine. How do we make sure that both front and back sprite has the same palette? I'm getting really confused... I hope you could help.

                      Nice! It helped a lot! I might use this guide more often, or atleast until I can memorize it.

                        Great news! I finally solved the distorted back sprite problem I think...

                        Here's what I did.

                        1) I followed Jagold's tutorial when I made my custom back sprite. After decreasing the color depth from 256 to 16, copy the exact RGB values of your front sprite, I mean the palette, to your back sprite.

                        2) You must copy all 16 color of your front sprite palette into your back sprite. After that use Unlz-GBA and first insert your front sprite and then your back sprite. Jagold's Dark Lugia looks AWESOME now!!

                        I want to post some screenies but I'll have to wait then. Thanks for helping me out Jagold and all the members of this community

                        Okay pipz...
                        I updated the tutorial.
                        This time, I added how to put your back sprites on your ROM.

                        Hopefully, this will be useful to you all.
                        Good day~

                            yes, it wreaks(whatever that means) your sprite...
                            did you followed my tutorial? I clearly said that after you switched the palletes, don't overwrite it to your old one.

                            anyways, if you have doubts, then just try it out for yourself for what'll happen.
                            remember to save back-ups~

                              Hey DJG, I think you should put that offsets that only end with 0,4,8 and C (basically any offset that is a multiple of 4 in decimal) should be used when repointing since anything else will crash the ROM when the image should be displayed.

                              I believe this is what is causing problems for people

                                Finaly, a tutorial that actualy make sense (at least to me). You should keep doing tuts about stuff you know, since this one turned out very good, also, I could use some advice.

                                When you insert the sprite, if it is too big, you need to give it an offset. (like 0x850000 )
                                Then click the "Automatically fix pointers" button.(Note, after you do this it is kinda hard to reverse, so be sure to make a backup of your game.)
