Hello,

Hi Ledian_X.

darkmind and Amphy have created our icons from scratch and have not touched yours. Obviously they come from the same Ruby and Sapphire sprites, and in case you have forgotten, Nintendo owns those. We made our icons by taking those sprites and shrinking them. If anything, it is you who have copied us, and I'm not completely surprised, because someone on your credits list is already being accused from stealing for Pokefor.

Look, I don't have time for these games. This appears to be some sort of bad publicity stunt which I just don't really care about. We get several emails daily and nobody has any problems. We also log all uses of the contact form, and no errors have been registered so far. You could also have private messaged the Admins. So I see no reason why you would have to post it in here. Anyway, I would seriously advise you to take a closer look, and for those of you who think we have copied all of these take a look also. All our icons are from the LGFR sprite set, shrunk down to 32x32 and touched up.

Our Icon: {jirachi}
Your Icon: Image

Our Icon: {rayquaza}
Your Icon: Image

Our Icon: {manectric}
Your Icon: Image

Our Icon: {pikachu}
Your Icon: Image

If you really want to take this further, feel free to email me ampharos111@yahoo.com or using our contact form, which can be reached from our site, or send me a private message. If you want to keep it in the public's eye, then so be it, but I will have no choice but to talk to others about this and do something about it once and for all. I don't think people who play Pokemon really care about any of this bull.

Very well,

We *would* be discussing this via e-mail but someone here stated that I have stole stuff just because I linked to Serebii. You know..I've been on the net a long time and I'm really sick of little grudges a lot of you pokemon sites have. Please. Grow Up will you. All I did was come here and politely asked about the icons. But, instead of calmly debating it, you've brought it into the open by accusing me of stealing just because I have a link to Serebii's site. Real class act accussing me of stuff when you don't know a thing about me.

As for the icons, Ampharos, a lot of them do seem similar like Tropius and co. I'm not sure about Metagross any more but just take a look. Just so you know, I never shrank images down to 32 by 32 pixels. All those icons were done by hand. I have noticed that the gsc pokemon aren't frlg icons. They're icons that have been on the net since 2000 and are free.

I'm just sick of dealing with thieves. Icons are essentially fan art. Sorry if there's a misunderstanding but you have to admit, some of those icons do look remarkably similar to my own. Perhaps I will e-mail you, Ampharos. Here's the e-mail address that I found which doesn't work:

psypoke@classicgaming.com

If you still want to talk via e-mail, let me know. I really don't care. I had to get something out due to an unfounded accusation.

Jesus H Christ

First off, some of your pictures are different yes, but some are very close to identical. I know Chris made these himself and I think you should show a comparisson of each one to show your innocence and not all of them. Why Not? Too Scared he may be right

Afterall, you do have a history of stuff like this, as you know from my email a month or two ago, but Iwont bring it here but you know EXACTLY what I'm going on about.

Of course I am not one to talk as I did used to steal, but havent for 2 years which brings me to my next point

I did not steal from Pokemon Forever. Filb has always had something against me and because I got some info the day after the game came out on the same day as Meowth, just a little later does not mean I stole it. I got the info from the bloody game and it is bloody stupid to accuse me of being a thief because of something like this.
