    Well typically when I make these images, they are already hosted on the Internet, usually as a .png. I convert those to a .gif and group them all together. I've searched everywhere for these Castform sprites, but couldn't find them anywhere. As a result, I decided to take a crack at animating them myself.

    I used the base animation of regular Castform and spliced accordingly. They're set to the same frame rate as all of the other sprites. The Sunny and Rainy formes should be the exact same as the same sprites. The Snow forme was a little more difficult to animate because of those tentacle things. I dunno if the real sprite goes over or under. I presumed over because it looked a lot better when I compared them. So here's my homebrews; they're as spot on as you're going to find on the Internet at this time. Enjoy!

    Hi where are the icons onsite, I have been working on bringing them all onsite, sadly the new icons are not animated but I am sure the new versions may be appreciated.

    oof well I'll get around to getting the xy sprites all collected up by December.

    As I understand new dex layout designs we will be relying on minipsprites, so chaos knows they XY ones are 40x32 pixels.

    Here's a link for a sprite searcher, they have sprites for the castform like you needed. http://www.pokestadium.com/pokemon/sprites
    Don't use pokemonelite2000 it's not that good for sprites IMO

    These are not fully up to date with XY menu sprites though.
