Hi everyone! I just uploaded a series of Pokemon DS rom hacking tutorial vids and wanted to post them here in case they help anyone out. They are definitely not high level stuff, mostly a showcase of how to use tools like Tinke, Kiwi, PokeDS/Pic, DS Text Editor, and PPRE for trainer team editing. So more of a "rom hacking for dummies" kind of guide.

Topics Discussed:

Pt 1: Overworld Sprites (including the elusive HM summon sprite)
Pt 2: Trainer Front/Back sprites and VS faces before a gym battle
Pt 3: Pokemon Sprites
Pt 3.5: Advance Pokemon Edits
Pt 3.75: Gen IV Sprite Editor
Pt 4: Text Editing (OLD WAY)
Pt 4.5: Text Editing 2 (BETTER WAY)
Pt 5: Opening, Intro, Ending locations
Pt 6: Enemy Trainer Pokemon Teams
Pt 7: Pokemon Icons
Pt 7.5: Pokemon Icon Pallets
Pt 8: How to use Photoshop and Graphic Gale
Pt 9: Diamond/Pearl Battle Sprites
Pt 10: Trainer Cards (Both Gen 4 and 5)
Pt 11: HG SS Pokemon Follow Overworld Sprites
Pt 12: 3D BMD0 Overworld Cutscene Trainer Sprites
Pt 13: Pokemon Cries to Pretty Much Anything
Pt 14: Quick Color Changes with Console Tool

If you have any questions, leaving a youtube comment would be a much faster way to reach me.

I'm not planning on hacking gen 4 at all any time soon, but I will say, I appreciate what you're doing for those who are interested in dipping their feet in gen 4.
Nice work : )

Even though I'm not interested in rom hacking gen 4 right now these are pretty helpful and informative, thanks for making them.

If you would make a gen 5 BW2 tutorial you would be my hero.
Thanks! I do only have experience with Platiunim and a little bit of HG SS, but from what i understand these techniques should be similar to Black and White. The main headache is just figuring out where all the files are located

A Pokemon that is discriminated!
Support squirtle and make it everyone's favourite. Maybe it could be added to the Pokémon Orphanage.
