      Hi Layell, I'm making a fangame of my own and was wondering if I could use the sprites from the Gen 6 sprite project? Of course, full credit will be given. The game is in very very early stages so I'm afraid I don't have anything to show yet. Thanks in advance!

        sure and provide a link credit when you release : )

      Yo I went back and looked at the original April Fool's sprites thread (from 2013, it's in Smogon's Greatest Hits) and I could only view Pokemon #1-99 in the spreadsheet, is there any way I can view the rest somewhere?

      I am making a game with Pokémon of my own design and I wanted to ask if there was any way for me to get help on the sprits for these new Pokémon I am creating? Also why can`t I post on the Smogon XY Sprite Project form?

        I know princessofmusic and I haven't been around as much, and that is because we have been busy moving in together, we don't even have our computer and internet set up fully. I already felt like I was married to princessofmusic through this sprite project, but then we started dating and living together, it feels much more like being married now. So I just wanted to say that soon enough we will be releasing some new sprite stuff.

      When making/modifying the outline for a sprite, how do you know where to make it black vs. where to make it a dark version of the main color?
      1. Layell
        Layell
        90% of the time it's from lighting

        The other 10% is separating objects of one colour from another.

      I'm messaging you on behalf of Pokémon Celestite. Would it be alright if we used sprites from the XY Sprite Project for a Pokémon fangame? We currently have a demo release, but there are Pokemon missing. You can also check the Discord channel linked in the reddit if there are any pressing concerns. Credit will be given (we have a credits page ingame).

        A credit page like that sounds good, if you need a download link from me let me know.

        A download link would be just great. I already have a bunch I've collected already. Also, mind putting animated ones in one folder, non-animated ones in another? If it's not too much hassle, I mean.

        Because we use animate normally, but we're also making a non-animated pack for slow computers.

      Hi there Layell

      I'm doing a fangame of my own and I noticed that your Gen 6 sprite project had just what I needed. i wanted to ask if you were willing enough to give me permission to use the sprites.

      Here's a link to my forum page

      Thank you
      1. Layell

        Sure just be sure to link back in that thread and in any download readme.

        If you need a download for them all I can pass that along as well.

      I noticed that on Pokemon Showdown, there's a sprites/xyani-back/magcargo .gif file and a sprites/xyani-back/magcargo.gif file. It is remarkably minor, but the duplicate could be removed. o3o

    Things I will do as Sprite Leader:
    -Improve 3D model rip optimization
    -Lead XY sprite project
    -Implement CAP sprites, help/create CAP sprites
    -Add icons for PS/Smogon
    -Approve your fangame to use sprites from XY Sprite Project
    -Find places that don't properly credit XY Sprites and murder the thieves

    Things I will never do as Sprite Leader:
    -Make new trainer sprites for PS
    -Make you a custom trainer sprite: drivers+, staff, and sometimes people who donate to PS get this but this doesn't mean I will make it for you, sometimes I will pass critique if you are close to approval. If you don't know me well enough, don't ask me to make you a trainer sprite
    -Approve custom trainer spirtes for Pokemon Showdown: I give advice but Zarel has final say, he is also picky because he has to waste time implementing them
    -Edit the 3D models excessively: Typhlosion won't get flames
