Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, BigDocFan!
Bulbagarden Archives bulb.png

By creating your account you are now able to upload images to help Bulbapedia and Bulbanews. Before you jump in, take a look at these helpful tips:

  • Uploaded images must meet several requirements. Please see the upload form and/or manual of style before you upload a new image.
  • All images need categories and license tags. Save time and fill them out as you upload. There are many different licenses - be sure to pick the best fit.
  • Use meaningful filenames. Make them descriptive so that searchers can find your images easily.
  • Personal images are no longer allowed. Any personal images found will be deleted on sight.
  • If you don't have any images to submit, you can still help out.
  • If you have any more questions, see the FAQ or ask a staff member.
Thank you, and have a good time uploading here!

File names

Hi there, welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives. As a general note, please read through the uploading checklist before you upload. In particular, please remember to only use alphanumeric characters (so no parentheses or other special characters) in file names. Thanks! --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 14:16, 4 June 2017 (UTC)

Thanks, first day on the job here so slowly getting used to it, trial and error really--BigDocFan (talk) 14:23, 4 June 2017 (UTC)

Stolen images

Please note that stealing images from other fan sites is not permitted, and the offending image has been deleted. In the future, do not upload images taken from other fan sites without permission or you may be blocked from uploading files to the Archives. --Abcboy (talk) 08:13, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

Understood, from now on will wait until youtube uploads an episode with WTP--BigDocFan (talk) 08:22, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

Image quality

Alright, first of all, I have no idea where the source of your images come from, but I'd advise picking a different one. The images that you have been uploading are, quite honestly, less than satisfactory. The one I just deleted was incredibly blurry, for example. Secondly, please make sure to tag and categorize all images. If you're confused about the requirements for uploading files, please check this guide. Ataro (talk) 23:10, 28 June 2017 (UTC)

I specifically asked you tag and categorize the images you upload. Please actually read the things people post on your talk pages. Ataro (talk) 00:20, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

Same goes with Sudowoodo's image (see Talk: Clawmark Hill) Marshtompert (talk) 21:18, 6 July 2017 (UTC)


Given complaints about the quality of my images, I have decided to leave the screenshots to others and stick to what I do best, good luck with finding WTP screenshots--BigDocFan (talk) 19:16, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

Image size limit

Please note that the maximum image size permitted on the Archives is 1280x1280 pixels. Make sure to resize all uploads to be less than 1280 pixels in before uploading them. Thanks! --Abcboy (talk) 17:55, 14 July 2017 (UTC)


I've noticed that when uploading new images, you've neglected to add in the appropriate categories. I'd like you to pay closer attention to them in the future. Same also applies to uploading new versions of already existing images: sometimes you may have to remove a category or add a new one when you do so. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 05:00, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

Please tag and categorize your images. Ataro (talk) 11:44, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
Please, don't forget to add categories when uploading new pictures, or edit the current categories if necessary when uploading new versions of images. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 06:39, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
Hey, this is your final warning to categorize your images. Ignoring this warning may warrant further disciplinary action. ht14 17:50, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

Image quality

Please note that just because your updated version of a picture is bigger than the original, doesn't necessarily mean that its quality is better. For example, the Pokéathlon pictures you've just uploaded are rather blurry and have black edges. There are sources for better quality images, trust me. If you can't do better than this, please leave it to people who can get better quality images than you can. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:03, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

Sadly that number of videos open to me are limited--BigDocFan (talk) 18:40, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
I actually would know a site where you could get high quality screenshots, but I'm not sure if Bulbapedia would allow me to give links to sites like that, so I'm unfortunately not going to name it here and now. Anyway, please avoid uploading blurry pictures, even if it's to fix size or something. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:53, 6 June 2018 (UTC)
Would be nice to find this site if possible--BigDocFan (talk) 19:03, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

File names

Please make sure to use only alphanumeric characters in filenames as stated on the upload checklist. Your recent uploads of "File:Lisa (anime).png" and "Fiboth le:Nidoran♀ Nidoran♂ M20.png" both contained other characters. --Abcboy (talk) 19:35, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

I do apologize, there are some areas I'm still not familiar with and with Lisa, the name was already taken so tried an alternative.--BigDocFan (talk) 19:51, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

Recent images

Please stop constantly uploading new versions of existing images simply because they're from more recently-aired episodes. Whether it's a recent shot or not is irrelevant. All we need is a shot of the Pokemon that looks good. That's it. The only real need for a recent shot is if it's a Pokemon that has had a large gap between appearances. Ataro (talk) 23:23, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Image quality again

There's no need to rush uploading images from an episode that only aired hours ago. Please have patience and wait until the high quality version becomes available. It shouldn't take too long. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 13:19, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

Userspace images

The images you've been uploading for use in your User: space conflict with our policy against personal images. Please ensure that your uploads are content that are relevant to the mainspace. - Chosen of Mana 22:17, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

Edit summaries

Could you please stop uploading images so that you don't have to place the categories in the summary section? Just copy an entire picture description, summary, template, and all, and then edit it to match what you want. And do not select a template from the selection, as it will already be there. There should be some upload descriptions that should show how it's done. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:13, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Did you not understand what I said? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 13:09, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Remember to categorize images

Hi there! You forgot to categorize the images you uploaded earlier today. We have categories for each species of Pokémon, and Ash's Pikachu and Dawn's Piplup have their own separate categories. Please keep that in mind when uploading images in the future. Also, I don't know where you get your images from, but they're quite blurry. It's one thing to upload blurry images when we don't have an existing file, but replacing a high quality image with a blurry one is inexcusable. --Mikuri (talk) 19:00, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Now this is what is confusing me, FinnishPokéFan92 is telling me to not do something yet you're saying the complete opposite.--BigDocFan (talk) 19:39, 7 November 2018 (UTC)


You're neglecting adding categories to your pictures again... --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:59, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Future episode headers

I gain access to a textless screenshot of the next episode on Mondays. Just so that you know. I'm probably going to replace your version of SM141.png when that happens tomorrow. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:39, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

Fair enough, I merely uploaded it as a temporary image--BigDocFan (talk) 15:50, 22 September 2019 (UTC)


Neither Torracat nor Incineroar was mentioned to activate Blaze. And it doesn't seem like that was Blaze anyway to me. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:05, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

Ah, I assumed it was Blaze with new animation--BigDocFan (talk) 12:06, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
