Bulbapedia Pokemon Emerald Staryu back sprite differences

Never edited/uploaded images to Bulbapedia before (and probably not anytime soon because the verification emails don't seem to be going through), but I recently discovered something that I haven't seen documented anywhere else online. Staryu's back sprites were updated between Ruby/Sapphire and Emerald!

Seems they realized they forgot the yellow stripe in the bottom left. If anyone could add this to the wiki for me I'd be eternally grateful! If you'd like to confirm for yourself I used NamelessSpriteEditor on an Emerald ROM to access the sprite. I haven't found any dumps of exclusively the Emerald back sprites online, I wonder if there were any other changes like these we haven't noticed yet?
