    Sapphire(not sure if it's the same for Ruby)

    439 - ???
    459 - Bulbasaur
    460 - Bulbasaur back, but shiny for some reason.
    1231 - Deoxys

    To find a pokemon, just go to Bulbasaur(or deoxys) and figure out the difference in number. Then double it. Then add it(or subtract it depending on wether its after or before) and you should have it. If not do a bit of pressing next/previous.

    But the 'Enter key' thing is really pissing me off.

    EDIT: For the shiny version, if you have a normal one, click next pal. For normal, if you have shiny, click previous pal.

    EDIT 2: It's not working! It looks all messed up. I can discern some of the sprite but it's blurry and cut in half. :(

    What did I do wrong? I followed all your instructons.

    Ugh. The backsprite has the pallete of the shiny colours, but ingame it will not, unless the Pokéon is a shiny. That way they don't need four sprites for a Pokémon. Just recolour your backspirte to have the shiny pallete and the frontsprite to have the normal one. The ROM will do the rest of the work. ;P Now, onto the tutorial. You need to do a bit more explaining, and not just short phrases. Try and give the thread a nice layout, not particularily CSS, but perhaps bigger tet for the title, and soe images. Of course, the visuals aren't vital, but people will usually view the thread and exit again becuase it doesn't look nice, even if it is good quality. Just some tips, JJJ (is it okay if I call you that?). Otherwise, quite a nice tut you got thar.

        I would post pics if I hadn't lost my camstudio and if you will look here you will see that i can't get camstudio on the computer I'm allowed to use for these purposes ( I would use flash drive but it's not fitting (the installer file) on the flash drive)

            well my friend all you have to do is hold the "Ctrl" button and look for the "Print Scrn" button which should be on the top of the keyboard beside the "F12" button... after that all you have to do is open up "paint", then just "paste"... it should already be copied, then you just cut out the unecessary parts, as it copy the whole screen... and thank you...

              You don't need to hold Ctrl.

                What do I do if the compressed size is to big? It says " Compressed size is: 508. Which is to big. Aborting." What do I do?

                  It imprts great, but when I view it it is all scrambled aroud. I know that normally you can puch the + and - buttons to change it but it doesn't work. And in game its all screwy and has some parts from some other image in there too.

                  halp?

                  Did you by any chance mess with the + and - buttons before you imported it?

                    as far as compression sizes go...
                    when it gives you the error "Compressed size is XXXX. Aborting!" or something similar, 1)remember the string of hex it gave you
                    2) Open up ms calculator
                    3) Switch to "Scientific View"
                    3.A)Switch to "Hex mode"
                    4)type in the string of hex i told you to remember (writing it down works just as good if you really wanna)
                    5)without doing anything else switch to "decimal mode"
                    6)copy the new string of numbers in calculator(edit -> copy)
                    7)Open your rom with fsf
                    8) in the "needed bytes" section, replace 64 with the string of NUMBERS that ms calc gave you after switching from hex to decimal mode in step 5
                    9)click "search"
                    10)Copy the offset FSF gave you (man your clipboard is useful)
                    11)Goto your sprite in UNLZ.GBA
                    12)Import your sprite again
                    13)When you go to write the new sprite to your rom, check the box "automatically fix pointers" and paste your offset (from FSF) into the "image location" box. Then go to the beggining and add two 0's. (before= XXXXXX; After = 00XXXXXX) that isn't entirely nescasary i think, but i do it anyways, I'm not real sure
                    14)Click "ok", you should see a pop up saying "ptr XXXXXXX changed" or something like that , click "ok"
                    15)your done

                    *please note*You can not change the compression size as far as my knowledge extends

                      Sorry for newbish question, but what's fsf? I've done everything else on here. (This section with the hexes just adds on more to do to replace a single sprite...)

                            I did what you said to do about the compression size, and the sprites are in but the colors are messed up. is there anyway to fix that?

                            1)Copy the pallette offset
                            2)open up A.P.E and your rom(Advanced Palette Editor by hackmew)
                            3)select "load from offset"
                            4)paste your offset in the text box
                            5)If it looks like the colors that you see...
                            5.a)edit them by pieces of the Pokemon you see (if the bulb on bulbasaur is purple change the purple that you see to be green)
                            5.b)If it doesn't then check the box of "compressed palette and do step 5.a
                            6)I'm not going to do a pallete editing tutorial, so look around if you don't know how to use A.P.E

                              Sometimes the transparent color still shows up in the game. is there a way to fix that?
                              this should be my last question O.K.
