    Okay, I have one MAJOR error... Still!
    I followed all the steps exactly in Emerald and put my new mon in the slot after Celebi AKA 252.
    THAT sprite is normally 2 questions marks... And when I add the new monster, my sprite doesn't show up, just the ??'s!
    It added the sprite in properly and everything works ie no glitches, corruption or lag etc... My sprites just aren't appearing! And yes, I did do the PokeEdit step to change the offset to mine T_T
    Any suggestions??? I think I'm having the same error as willj016 was, but no luck correcting it...

          It sounds like you've used an image that's too big (dimensions, like length and with)

            Can i have some help with this i'm trying to put Lopunny in my Emerald

            I did all the steps this tutorial said and i used the slot after Celebi

            I decreased the image size to 64x64 i did everything but once i tried encountering it the game froze before it even showed the sprite

            so far i only did the front sprite i have added no animations or any other sprites just the front

            i didn't add any other pokemon as this is my first attempt so far and it has also corrupted my Emerald save(thank goodness for back ups)

            can someone help me with this because Lopunny(probably Garchomp too) is the only Pokemon i plan on adding to the game

                Is there any easy way to edit pokemon icons other than using iconed ?
                I have been able to change sprites but no luck with icons!!!

                Can anyone provide a link to guide or video how to change icons??

                    The transparent colour must be the first colour in the palette. So if the Pokémon has a pink background, the first colour in the palette must be pink.

                    The tutorial is a bit outdated with Advanced Series out, though. tpravetz, if you're still maintaining this, you should probably add a section on using A-Series rather than IconED and UnLZ-GBA.

                      no, sorry about this, but if you want to add any new pokemon to emerald, you will need 64x128 image, 2 frames of one pokemon since emerald has animation
                      like this: http://i767.photobucket.com/albums/xx316/blacksupernova_photo/pokemon/Giratinafrontsprite.png

                            Or use Advanced Pokémon Sprite Editor instead. It's faster and easier to use than unLZ-GBA (and doesn't require indexed sprites).

                              I had an issue... I tried to replace Bulbasaur with a pokemon, if I chose that one as my starter from oak's table, all the people sprites dissapear and the game freezes. If I choose squirtle and rival gets 'bulbasaur' this happens:

                              anybody know how in the world I did this? (or how to fix it?)

                                  I followed the steps exactly as they were, but when I try to write it to the rom it says the image isn't indexed. At that point I can open it in infranview and decrease the color again to 16 (this would be the second time). at that point I can import and write it, but then in the game the image is messed up..help..?

                                    This tutorial is great, thank you!
                                    But I have a question: How do you change a Pokemon icon? You know, those in the Pokemon team screen. I can edit Pokemon main image and backsprite just fine, but I don't know how to edit the icon. Is the method similar? As in, have to search for the icon in Unlzgba and edit it?

                                      @Toxicroak, look up at Wichu's signature, and follow the link to his tool thread, they are the best for hacking sprites and Icons.
                                      I've got a theory, and if I'm honest I haven't read through the thread, so if this has been said/mentioned already just let me know (politely, thank you ). Those 25 "empty" slots surely have something to do with the Unown? That'd be why they have its cry? Could.. Gah, I had a whole elaboration planned out in my head, but it's gone essentially what I'm asking is, could they have something to do with the Unown? I'm hacking Emerald, and I would like to know from other people who have successfully inserted Pokemon over the "empty" slots in Emerald? Has it been tested- ie, open up a map, set the Wild Pokemon to a Unown and one of the newly inserted Pokemon, and see if multiple Unown forms still appear? [/babble]

                                          This guide goes well, until I get to steps 8 and 9.

                                          I copy the old sprite over to the Irfanview one and when I save, it un-indexes. Why is this happening? :/

                                            This has been bothering me for some time as well. However, considering there's 28 different Unown forms, it wouldn't seem that it would be the case. Somebody should look into this!

                                            And secondly, the issue of cries themselves. I too have had the issue of inserting cries into Fire Red to no avail--I want to know if somebody has successfully inserted cries into their English Fire Red, specifically by changing the pointer for one of the ? Pokemon between Celebi and Treecko. Has anyone been able to do that? If so I would love to hear from you =)

                                                This tutorial allowed me to import Lucario into the game successfully. I added the front and back sprites perfectly on my first try. My only question is: how do I import an icon seen in the PC and the current party menu?

                                                Edit: Actually, I didn't do it perfectly. I wanted to fill up one of the "?" slots after Celebi, so I picked a random Pokemon sprite like you said to and did the Import and Write to ROM process; however, I ended up changing the image and palette of that random Pokemon sprite. HALP!!!
