Before uploading any images related to Generation VI, please take a moment to read this message.
Got a spare minute? The Archives need some love. See the to-do list to find a way to help.
If you upload a new image make sure you name and categorize it properly. If in doubt, ask an admin or see our FAQ page.

Welcome

Bulbagarden Archives logo.png
Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, SnorlaxMonster!

As a new user, you may wish to learn a few things that will be useful in your uploading:

The Manual of Style, or MoS, outlines the format and guidelines of all images on Bulbagarden Archives.

All of our administrators are here to help! Talk to them if you have any questions or problems with the Archives.

Tagging images with correct licenses and categories is a must. These guidelines will help you learn more about tagging images.

Miscellaneous
  • Please read the checklist when you upload media files. The checklist is there to make sure you are doing everything necessary when uploading said media files.
  • Be sure to tag and categorize all images. This helps organize the vast amount of images we have here.
  • Check if your image already exists by searching through categories, and Bulbapedia pages. This action will help prevent unnecessary duplicates from appearing.
  • When adding a licensing tag to anime or game screenshots, please avoid just choosing "Screenshot". This is not descriptive and places the images in the wrong category. Make sure to choose "Screenshot from a Pokémon game," or "Screenshot from the Pokémon anime." This will put them in the right categories, and help keep the Archives clean.
  • Does your image have a purpose? Will you be using it on a Bulbagarden Project? Avoid uploading images because you think they are "Cute" or "Awesome". That clutters the Archives.
  • Personal images are limited to two for each User. Personal images include personal logos, personal trainer sprites, drawings, trainer cards and mostly any image that would only be used in the User: namespace and have no encyclopedic value to Bulbagarden and its affiliates. Please tag these with the {{i-Personal}} template for easier organization. Under no circumstance should a photograph of one's self ever be uploaded onto Bulbagarden Archives.
  • In addition, please upload images with meaningful names. Names that are just numbers, for example, do not describe anything about the image, and can make it difficult for searchers. Names are just as important as licenses and categories, so make them descriptive. Please be sure that the filenames contain alphanumeric characters only.
  • Due to the many automated templates used on the wiki, lowercase extensions are imperative. That means jpg and png instead of JPG and PNG. It looks cleaner, it works better, and it does not cause any problems. Make sure to always use lowercase extensions.
  • If you're confused about the requirements for uploading files, have a look at this guide.
 Thank you, and have a good time uploading here!

Files

Here's how it works. 001.png. File:001.png. Got it? ht14 00:54, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

OK, thanks. --SnorlaxMonster 01:55, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

Reason

Hey SM, I am here to explain my previous edit. Bulba archives encourages to upload images with the png extensions instead of jpgs for the quality reason and it is also necessary to upload a transparent version (no whitish background) of an image. As you can see the major difference between these two images.

File:PokemonRanger Character 02.jpg
PokemonRanger Character 02.png
Now, tell me isn't there a big difference in both images? Is the quality and transparency of both images looks same? ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 13:54, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, I didn't mean that I didn't understand the reason. I meant that you should put it in the delete template. I understand why you did it. --SnorlaxMonster 06:35, 24 February 2010 (UTC)
Oh, my bad. I'll take care this thing next time. Anyway, thanks for the help. --♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 09:33, 24 February 2010 (UTC)


Route 10 HGSS

No, talk to Gabo 2oo about correcting the image of Route 10. You can see an item (Poké Ball) in the image, please remove the item (TM Rock Polish) soon? --Rodney 23:42, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Well, you could have replied on the talk page of Route 10 HGSS, but here is good too. I suggest you go talk to Gabo 2oo about it. I also fixed your writing to how I interpreted it. If you disagree, change it back.--SnorlaxMonster 00:59, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Screenshots with walking Pokémon

If it's got Celebi as the walking Pokémon, there's a 99.9% chance you should not be using it. It's always best to take your own screenshots rather than "stealing" from other sites. —darklordtrom 08:09, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

They're all from PokéWiki. As far as I know, the purpose of Encyclopaediae Pokémonis is that we can use information without it being "stealing". --SnorlaxMonster 08:13, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
Also, I checked (after you messaged me) and couldn't find that picture anywhere on Serebii, especially here. --SnorlaxMonster 08:46, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
Wrong page. The thing is, if it has a Celebi, it's from his site. It's his watermark. If another EP member takes it, we still can't take it from them. Serebii doesn't like Bulbapedia using images from his site, and we like it less. —darklordtrom 08:51, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Personal images

These should be in this category only. Personal images do not get other categories. —darklordtrom 12:17, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

Alright sorry about the questiomarks. Didn't know they were "Bad.

Just make sure you replace all the locations where the image is used on the page in the future when remaining/replacing images. Koolboyman 16:58, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Janoby/Janobii

...I thought Janobii would be a more appropriate translation for ジャノビー. Anyway, you don't save and reupload; we move it. Thanks, Kevzo8 12:38, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

I'm going by what Bulbanews gives me. Also, I reuploaded because you deleted it while I was saving it, which messed everything up. Then I had to try and fix the problems that the non-edit conflict caused. --SnorlaxMonster 12:42, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Congratulations

Thanks for all the hard work you've done on the Archives. Welcome aboard the new team. I trust that you will use your new superpower well and help keep this place organized. There's always stuff to do on the Archives and we depend on people like you to keep things smooth! (I hope you'll be more active here now too). Jellotalk 09:27, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Congratulations SM, keep it up. :) ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 11:14, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Relic castle has christmas lights

I want to fix it but don't know the frame rate, would you know?—★Pika3323 11:18, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm not very experienced in APNGs. I don't really know how to fix it. --SnorlaxMonster 11:20, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

Naming conventions

How should I upload the TCGO files?--immewnitythemew 18:54, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

The Templates

When are those templates going to be moved? Pattyman 16:10, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

I'll show them to the other staff this weekend and see what they think. --SnorlaxMonster 16:24, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
Fine by me. Pattyman 16:32, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

JP Crystal Jynx sprite

That gonna be the hardest one (since it looks I need to do it the legit way)... I just considered that I would had to hatch the Odd Egg until I would get Shiny Smoochum... since normally chance for shiny is just too low to get it fast (last time I got shiny that way was... ~1 month ago, and the second-to-last was so long ago that I don't remember the date, and actually it was first with 1 to 8192 chance), and breeding for shiny Smoochum is impossible due to that no Pokémon before RSE had any Pokémon that were in Human-like and another group (was considering chain breeding from Red Gyarados... as Generation II is capable of breeding for shiny). Also, wtf is with counter on talk of main page? It says 290 out of 289 for GS Back sprites (both shiny and non-shiny) Marked +-+-+ 14:33, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

You could always try the Shiny Ditto glitch. Or you could just hack one in (easiest way). --SnorlaxMonster 15:15, 8 September 2011 (UTC)
Hack in? Impossible, I can't find codes (for shiny) for JP Crystal, only English, and I don't think if there is stuff like Advance Map, but for Generation II in Japanese. I don't know if it's possible to trade Pokémon from English eg. Yellow to Japanese Crystal (as international trade was implemented in Generation III). Also, acidentally uploaded file under wrong name and it was impossible to move file as there was redirect there ._. (and I know that you are Senior Administrator) Marked +-+-+ 15:39, 8 September 2011 (UTC).

Wait. lolwut I just could use Jynx from English Crystal to trade it to Yellow, then to JP Crystal (since I managed to link Yellow to JP Crystal... it's Japanese, due to everything in Japanese and party being other than English games). YEEEES. Marked +-+-+ 16:06, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

FUUUU doesn't work (the party of JP Crystal appears glitchy in Yellow and Crystal itself can't connect). And the Pokémon Comunnication Center is screwed. ._. Marked +-+-+ 16:22, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Oh. I just remember that I have Japanese Gold (or Silver? It's translated to Trademarked... I think, it could be Hepburn) and I am capable of 100% shiny encounter stuff. Now just gonna trade it to Crystal. Marked +-+-+ 12:33, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

That's great! Yeah, I knew about my promotion. I was talking to PsychicRider on AIM at the time anyway (the person who promoted me). Carmen handled the image you uploaded under the wrong name. I don't think inter-language trading is possible in Gens I and II either (although your testing seemed to prove that). Also, I think the Shiny Ditto glitch would have saved a bit of time if you have Japanese R/B/Y, but hacking is easier of course. --SnorlaxMonster 04:51, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

Although a bit late...

Thanks for getting the two templates (mva and aba ones) approved. I appreciate it. For the two parter moves such as Aipom being hit by Flash, how do I handle those? I did start on some of them. Pattyman 15:34, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

Well, for that one, the name should be File:Roserade Flash Aipom.png (no pun intended). Even if it is a Pokémon being hit by an attack, focus on the user. For images with multiple moves being used, just put another template on for each move. --SnorlaxMonster 15:38, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
Except that that image wasn't used (I checked and it wasn't in a switch on Ash's Aipom or Gardenia's page) so I deleted it. --SnorlaxMonster 15:40, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
On the right track. Pattyman 16:00, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
The image of Sudowoodo using Flamethrower after using Mimic wasn't Brock's. In fact, it was a wild Sudowoodo using it from the Johto saga. I took a screenshot from the episode before uploading it. Pattyman 16:15, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

animated sprites

What's the policy on animated sprites? Are we doing those for DPPt/HGSS or BW? There seems to be some people uploading the Gen IV animations - how are those getting created? --Jdthebud 07:35, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

All sprites with the prefix "Spr" should be animated (if they are animated). Pure number filenames like File:001.png are not. I don't know how it is done (you're better off asking someone doing it that question), but they must all be uploaded as animated PNG files. --SnorlaxMonster 12:12, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

Fire Spin/Flamethrower

Should the filename of this image stay as it is or can it be moved to Flamethrower? There wasn't really any evidence of it using Fire Spin. Pattyman 19:05, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, it should be moved. Unless someone checks the original and it was Fire Spin (based on this, I've already checked the dub), it should be Flamethrower. --SnorlaxMonster 01:10, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

Linking TCG/TFG images

We don't link them... err... rather, it's optional but not necessary. You could surf around most of the TCG images and you'll see that those are not linked. ht14 18:58, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

There isn't really any reason not to link them. TCG isn't linked because, well, it would be a huge effort to do it. Ideally, both would just use summary templates (which I intended to make once). --SnorlaxMonster 13:31, 1 January 2012 (UTC)
Eh, I see it as redundant then... in any case, once the MediaWiki glitches and whatnot are fixed, then it really isn't necessary since the page where the file is linked to is already seen. ht14 21:02, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Game screenshots

I am going to need some help in this category with filling in missing summaries and moving some of the images to their necessary file names (the ones that are used) as I won't be able to do them all on my own. Pattyman 18:28, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

MD sprites

As seeing some are just way too big or small, I am resizing them (and uploading some). But some, like Articuno's are bigger than 32x32 (resized Rayquaza to 64x67, where actual sprite is 61x67). What about size of such big sprites? Marked +-+-+ 17:00, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, I have no idea what the size should be. Just stick to 32x32 if they fit in that, otherwise just make the dimentions equal (so Rayquaza would be 67x67). --SnorlaxMonster 01:55, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

Old Matriarch

Should the Old Matriarch be categorized as Character of the day, or just no category for her? G50 10:52, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Well, if she did get a category it would be under her English name of elder anyway, but since even rivals like Georgia don't get their own category, I don't think she needs one. --SnorlaxMonster 10:55, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
Okay. G50 10:59, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Re: whatever

It looked fine on the article...I'll see if I can do something about it though. --Pyro (talk) 15:02, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

The Generation III berry sprites

Are you planning on reuploading those soon, or are they permanently being deleted? If it's permanent, than could you please give me a copy of the files? I would really appreciate it. Thank you! --Abcboy (talk) 01:51, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

No, we weren't planning on reuploading them any time soon. Because the images are unused GIF images and we don't have all the different stages (only the Berry-bearing stage), we decided it was better to get a new rip and get all the stages together as PNGs (and hopefully animated). Our French counterpart has all of the images we had and several more. --SnorlaxMonster 12:14, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Pawel10s

He keeps on uploading images without licensing them and putting in the summaries even though he was warned three times. Pattyman (talk) 18:22, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

B óË ÁNSprite.png

Hey, could you please move that page to "ÓË e ÁiSprite.png", since this is the real name and the other one is an emulator error? TheOriginalOne 20:07, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

File:RBsprite000 s.png

This is why: 'v --×Rsrdaman× 04:02, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

Re-uploaded it with a correct name.--×Rsrdaman× 04:33, 9 September 2012 (UTC)
Just use it's regular sprite. After it's finished evolving it should use it again. --SnorlaxMonster 05:10, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

Prototype artwork summary template

Here it is. Please state your opinion on it. For use on prerelease images as seen on Prototype Pokémon and characters. --Abcboy (talk) 16:31, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

Just made a quick modification, but I think it looks fine. --SnorlaxMonster 16:34, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
Can you pass on this edit to user rights I think would be good? No mainspace edits to all users sort of like the File: namespace back on Bulbapedia. --Abcboy (talk) 23:57, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
I don't understand what you're asking. Could you read over your message or rephrase it? --SnorlaxMonster 03:23, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
Have you noticed how most users can't edit File: or File talk: on Bulbapedia? This is the same thing except for the main namespace, because practically everything here is in the File: namespace. It also would curb vandalism. --Abcboy (talk) 03:27, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
Bulbapedia's File namespace is just a mirror of the Archives one, so users aren't supposed to edit it. The File talk namespace is local to Bulbapedia, so it does not mirror the Archives one; we used to allow the creation of File talk namespace pages on Bulbapedia, but we decided that since they were far too hard to notice and track on Bulbapedia, so the usage of File talk is restricted to the Archives. It is so much easier to track File talk namespace on the Archives than on Bulbapedia. --SnorlaxMonster 03:36, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
No, I want the main namespace blocked here. --Abcboy (talk) 03:38, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
When I was searching on Bulbapedia, I saw the new Learnset: namespace. I'm guessing it is for the learnsets? --Abcboy (talk) 04:04, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
The existence of Category:Texts makes locking the mainspace here an issue. I thought it would be a good idea, but people higher than me want to keep the Archives open for storing texts as well, and a single spammer isn't really enough justification to lock the entire namespace. The learnset namespace was something TTE was trying to set up ages ago, but nothing came of it, not everyone really liked the idea, and he has since been permanently banned.--SnorlaxMonster 08:28, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Gen. VI moves

Some of the early images depict new attacks introduced in Gen. VI. What do you want to do about them? Pattyman (talk) 23:31, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Werdane doesn't want to move any images yet. We've got a long time and no new shots of known moves (as in, we don't know for sure what the moves are). --SnorlaxMonster 14:07, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
Very well then. Pattyman (talk) 15:35, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

Stoutland's Tackle

Can you restore the image of Burgundy's Stoutland using Tackle? I found a good use for it somewhere and reuploading it wouldn't be necessary. Pattyman (talk) 19:12, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

The link is File:Burgundy Stoutland Tackle.png. Pattyman (talk) 01:12, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
It has been restored. --SnorlaxMonster 10:18, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

On Boxes

Seeing as I've been chewed out for jumping the gun on my templates before, I was hoping you would give my Box Wallpaper template a final look over before it gets moved to the mainspace. - Chosen of Mana 22:29, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

I removed the align=center as it is already width=100% so doesn't need aligning. Also, you shouldn't be using align= anymore anyway; it's depreciated HTML and the new code is detailed here. The reason this is important is a while ago we updated MediaWiki and it didn't recognize align= and all our template alignments got messed up, so we're gradually trying to replace it. Otherwise, the template looks fine. --SnorlaxMonster 08:08, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

sprite

I left a message before on the Science and Pokémon: Pokémon eggs talk page about the fanmade sprite of Skitty and Wailord, unless you were aware about it. By the way, thank you for deleting those redirects of the moved files. Pattyman (talk) 04:32, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

I decided to leave it due to being used in that Bulbanews article. --SnorlaxMonster 04:40, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

talkpage

I believe this user's talkpage needs to be deleted since he is a sockpuppet. The block was already taken care of, just letting you know. Pattyman (talk) 03:36, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

Dealt with. --SnorlaxMonster 04:40, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

upload over existing file

The sprite for the Blazikenite has a transparency issue, and I have a fixed version with transparent background but I am unable to upload it. The FAQ said I needed a staff member's permission. The file I want to upload is 24x24 and like i said it has a transparent background. Yamitora1 (talk) 18:27, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

Looks like this has been dealt with. --SnorlaxMonster 05:09, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

Glitch images

Hey man, I have been tackling the Candidates for moving and I noticed a bunch of glitch Pokémon's sprites need to be moved to the new standard. Great! Except, when I tried to move these four images: File:Gmp1.png, File:PokedollarGlitch.png, File:RBGlitchFA.png, and File:YGlitchCD.png, it said the destination filename was taken. I didn't move them yet cause the other pics look different so I didn't want to mess around with anything (I know some glitch Pokémon can have common sprites but it's not something I am super knowledgeable about) anyway, since you are project leader, I was wondering if you could help me out with this or point me in the right direction. Thanks!! --ZestyCactus 21:53, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

Large overworld weather anipng

Hi there, I was recommended to pass these questions on to you by G50.
I have been working on animating the overworld weather conditions, and the last one I need to upload is the Tornadus/Thunderus summoned "thunderstorm" in BW. However, the file I get is over 4 MB because a) 60fps, and b) extremely high detail with the amount of rain on the screen, and there is a certain length to the animation. Obviously I will need a staff member to upload it for me, but I wanted to ask what you would consider the limit for the size. Is over 4 MB too much? Here is probably the best one I made time-wise - it's over 4 MB: Thunderstorm V. It's worth noting that I experimented with 30 fps, but it barely dropped the file size and the animation didn't look as clean as it needed to be. Let me know what you think, and if necessary, I may be able to tinker a little more with the frames to get a smaller file.
- On a somewhat related note, would you classify this weather to be Heavy rain or Thunderstorm? I don't think there is any lightning flashes, but there could be thunder? It may help to look at the Rain page - I did describe it as a Thunderstorm there, but it may need to be changed. Jdthebud (talk) 02:03, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

ORAS Hoenn maps

Just wondered, I've got the clean HQ in-game Hoenn map using images from the Official Site (example here but I don't know whether to upload them over the current maps, or upload them at new file names? Or should I wait for the current maps to be moved to new file names and then upload them then? --S2daam (talk) 23:02, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Eventually, we're going to want the ORAS maps and have them at the existing filenames; however, that would necessitate purging all the images, which we don't have time for right now. For the time being, hold off on uploading ORAS maps for old locations over existing maps. However, for new locations you're welcome to upload ORAS maps. --SnorlaxMonster 03:36, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

XY Clothing Tag sprites

I'm not sure who to ask about this, but you seem to be the most active staff currently, so I'll pitch this at you. I found some sprites for clothing tags on Spriter's Resource here. And I was wondering if they would be good enough for the site. Voltdetector (talk) 06:35, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Kogoro is a little unsure about it, so ask her on her talk page here. --SnorlaxMonster 11:46, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
Alright, will do. Thanks. Voltdetector (talk) 11:57, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
I hate to bother you again, but Kogoro seems to be taking awhile to get back to me. And I don't know who else to take this to. Any suggestions? Voltdetector (talk) 07:23, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
To me, it looks like she has already replied. --SnorlaxMonster 08:47, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
Oh, alright. For some reason I never got an email confirmation about that. Voltdetector (talk) 09:07, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
