      Hello Layell, i'd like to ask for permission to use the sprites from the XY and Sun/Moon sprite projects in a fangame im working on.
      1. Layell
        Layell
        yeah just link to both projects, I'd probably wait a fair bit for adding sun/moon stuff since most is far from final : )

      Togedemaru is the English name, sorry to disappoint you. All Pikaclones retain their JP names, so it's kind of a pattern by now.

      Hey Layell I know you are not planning to lead the sprite project for gen 7 but think it might be a good idea to get the ball rolling with more and more mons being released.

        Ah awesome! Hopefully this will bring the dynamic project back to life as well. Won't be able to do much on a tablet but ill help out with qc and animations when the time comes.

      Hi, Layell! Since you're the sprite leader, I was wondering if there was any plans on making trainer sprites of XY for showdown avys? Thanks, for the all the amazing sprite work you have done!

      Hey layell its a bit late but im willing to help with the sun/moon sprite project when it happens. I dont have the eye you and pom have when it comes to the tiniest details but after being around sprites for a while, I can get sprites pretty close to how they should be. Let me know if you still need me!

      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!
      1. Layell

        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 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.

    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
