Yes, but you have to make your own front and back sprites and fix up the broken pointers.
I also reccomend reading the rules.
Help I'm trapped in here I cant escape this website it sucks me in like a black hole.
But this website is anything but black, its whiter than snow.

You can't fully build a custom Pokémon without ROM hacking.
Actually, you may be able to, but you'd need to use some very heavy game logic manipulation (using, I guess, DMA hijacking) to make a custom cry, custom sprite, custom learnset, etc.
Also, it would be very difficult to do especially because some attacks, such as Substitute, fully reload the sprite.

So :
- In theory it's possible
- No one will ever have the dedication to complete such a tremendous work
- I might be wrong but I bet I'm not

(TAS-level ACE would be able to also do such a thing, but I guess that's out of TheUnReturned's scope)

You CAN create a sprite but custom cries and similar are a lot harder considering that cries are in rom and you can't really do anything with rom via ACE
