    I have a question about hacking the sprite of Dawn in Pokemon Platinum.
    Is there a program that rips the sprite of Lyra from Pokemon HeartGold, so I'm able to replace Dawn's sprite in Pokemon Platinum with Lyra's?
    So basicly, I want to play as Lyra in Pokemon Platinum, is that possible?

    Thank you for your help

    Why would you want Lyra?

    I have no clue why they replaced Crystal with Ms. Oversized Hat girl.

    As far as helping you... I dont know of any programs that let you import the sprites from the other games, but I do know there's a way to go in and manually edit the sprites.

    Her sprite isn't the game so you'd pretty much have to do it manually. If you're lucky than the program that edits sprites may be able to export the stuff so you can kind of cut/paste it though I'm explaining it simpler than it is

    I was able to edit Dawn's sprite, I now have Lyra's sprite for : Walk, run, bike, fish, save, surf, fly
    Now I only need to edit her battle sprite. But I'm having trouble with that. Any ideas?

    I did something similar, when I played with switching sprites before. I can switch backsprites, but I have no idea how to change your spirit on your trainer card though.

    Do the quoted parts, then copy Lyra's files(6_005-6_0009, or 6_080-6_084, she has the 5 files after the males hero's) into poketool/trgra/trbgra.narc, replacing whatever Dawn's files are. I think the are the 6th-10th files like Lyra, but I'm not entirely sure. Too lazy too find out for myself.
