To view or search previously uploaded images, go to the list of uploaded images. Uploads and deletions are logged on the upload log.

The preferred formats are JPEG for photographic images, PNG for diagrams, sprites, icons and other simpler images, and Ogg Vorbis for sounds.
Avoid GIFs for complex images as it has a limited colorspace.

To include the image in a page, use a link in the form [[{{ns:6}}:file.jpg]] or [[{{ns:6}}:file.png|alt text]] or [[{{ns:-2}}:file.ogg]] for sounds. These links can be used on other wiki sites that are set up to automatically retrieve media from Bulbagarden Archives.
