Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives!

The Bulbagarden Archives are an integral part of the Bulbawiki system. The Archives host the sprites, screenshots, scans and animations used on Bulbapedia, Bulbanews, and Bulbagarden's other projects. Ideally, all images used on the Bulbawiki Network will be stored on the Archives. We do not seek to store every Pokémon-related image on the internet, merely those relevant to the encyclopedia and news services that Bulbagarden provides.

We have 90,725 uploaded files.

If you have any questions, first see the FAQ page. If this doesn't help, find an active staff member.

Message from the Council
November 9 196MS.png

With the release of Pokémon X and Y far behind us, it is time to get the Bulbagarden Archives back to regular business. With that said, the Bulbagarden Archives are once again open to public uploading and editing. We would also like to take this moment to remind that, as always, it is extremely important that all users remember to follow all Bulbagarden Archives policies and guidelines. That noted, with screenshots & sprites being much more difficult to obtain in X and Y than in the previous five generations, it has been decided that a few important rules will be tightened up in regards to X and Y related uploads:

  1. Uploading screenshots taken from other fansites is not permitted and will not be tolerated under any circumstances.
  2. Before uploading any sprites, including Custom/fan-made graphics and fan-made recreations of in-game graphics, a member of the Advisory Council must be contacted. Capture card owners will be asked to provide a unique screenshot for safety reasons.

Violations of either of these rules, in regards to X and Y uploads, will result in an immediate temporary block to the violating party/parties, of a duration no less than three days. We would like to thank you for your understanding during this trying time.

Happy uploading.

Uploading rules
An outline of some important rules, before you start to upload:
  • Remember to categorize and license your images appropriately.
  • Provide an appropriate summary of the image. What is it from, what is happening?
  • Do not upload excessively large images (generally 1280×1280 is the maximum size).
  • Stealing images from other fansites is not permitted.
  • Personal images are not allowed.
  • All uploaded files should be needed and used on either Bulbapedia or Bulbanews. If an image is unneeded or unused, it may be deleted.
The Bulbagarden Archives are part of Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden
