    ^Thread necromancy much?

    If you wish to effect a sprite change the best way to do it is to hack the rom (you can get emulators that have a sprite change feature but I do not suggest this route).

    Find yourself a tile viewer/editor, my suggestion is http://home.arcor.de/minako.aino/TilEd2002/
    The scan the rom for your sprites (it will likely be multiple pictures for each "frame" (use GBA4bpp, 8bpp and bitmap.
    Should you have a compressed pictures you will have to trace the compression routine (most compression merely uses the bios routines) with VBA-SDL or VBA-h or some other debuggin build.
