    Hey guys! I wanted to know your opinion on something, I plan on doing a FULL complete color version of Pokemon Yellow and I just wanted to ask a few questions to anyone who has some knowledge in game hacking...

    I've seen online that people have done color hacks of Red and Blue, but one thing that bothered me is that they used the Gen 2 sprites and replaced them with the Gen 1 pokemon sprites, sure they might look better but I want to see the old sprites in full color! I eventually came to the conclusion the only reason they probably did that was because it was probably way easier to just swap out the gen 1 sprites with gen 2 because they are full color anyway!

    So what I'm trying to ask here is do you guys think it would be even possible to take the Gen 1 sprites and add full color to them? Like make Pikachu yellow and add the brown on his back and the black tips on his ears? I am thinking that everything in the overworld can be assigned certain individual colors but for the sprites? I don't think so, the entire sprite for each pokemon would have to be re-made from scratch I think, anyway for a first time game hacker I am fully dedicated to this but I really don't know where to start. I would pretty much base the re-colorization on a full gen 1 colorized sprites I found on google images please let me know what you guys think!

    Hello. Was wondering if you were ever able to get a Pokemon yellow full color hack with original sprites, just like the red/blue full color hacks?

    To which Gen 1 sprites are you referring?

    Just the original sprites that are in the game already just colorized. (The whole game)

    Just like the red/blue full color hacks.
