:Thanks! Although, given that you gave even the Masters Trailer locations their own article with only two images, I could easily see the BF and HIBAPC mangas getting their own categories too, given that there's surprisingly many from each. Especially the latter. --[[User:FinnishPokéFan92|FinnishPokéFan92]] ([[User talk:FinnishPokéFan92|talk]]) 09:15, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

Could you delete "Pewter City PO.png"? It's unused and practically identical to "Kanto Route 2 PO.png", which doesn't feature Red. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:00, 20 January 2020 (UTC)

Could you delete "Iron Island Ruins.png"? We already have a better quality version image of the same location with "Iron Ruins anime.png". --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:25, 26 January 2020 (UTC)
Could you upload a head image for SS012? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:43, 2 February 2020 (UTC)
Never mind. It's uploaded already. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:59, 2 February 2020 (UTC)
Sorry to make such frequent requests, but I was wondering: should all the new, HQ images of Gen 8 be cropped a bit? Because right now, they appear pretty small when viewed on Bulbapedia. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:26, 5 February 2020 (UTC)
I don't suppose you're able to upload a version of Team Rocket Bellsprout.png but without the Japanese text?--BigDocFan (talk) 09:46, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
Two things: 1) Could you delete "Leon Charizard G-Max Wildfire effect 2.png"? I found a screenshot that combines the two effects into one, so that image is meaningless now. And 2) I have a suggestion for a new version of "Ash Pikachu.png". You can see it here. Do you think the current one or this one is better? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 13:18, 22 February 2020 (UTC)

Move Request

Could you change the name of Lance new series.png to Lance SS.png please--BigDocFan (talk) 15:15, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

Could you also also move "Orange League Cup.png" under a more accurate title? Note that there is already another image of the same trophy, labeled "Winner Trophy.png". --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:42, 2 February 2020 (UTC)
Could you move "GO Up-Grade.png" to "GO Upgrade.png" to match the item's new name format? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 13:44, 4 February 2020 (UTC)
Hikaru Wazana has uploaded Gary Arcanine Movie 22.png and Gary Movie 22.png, could you change the title to remove Movie 22 and replace it with M22 please--BigDocFan (talk) 14:39, 7 February 2020 (UTC)
You only moved one. Could you also move the Gary image? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:58, 7 February 2020 (UTC)
"File:Roughneck Vespiquen Heal Order Adventures.png" doesn't really depict the move the title describes, as the move order was never executed. Could you move the image to something like "File:Vespiquen grubs Adventures.png"? Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:04, 12 February 2020 (UTC)
Could you move Sakuragi Institute Gengar.png to Ash Gengar, Gengar Shadow Ball.png to Ash Gengar Shadow Ball and Gengar Ice Punch.png to Ash Gengar Ice Punch please--BigDocFan (talk) 09:37, 8 March 2020 (UTC)
Could you move "Sakuragi Household.png" to "Cerise Household.png"? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:27, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
Sorry to add to your workload but could you change "Professor Cerise anime.png" to "Professor Cerise anime.png as well please"?--BigDocFan (talk) 16:32, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
"Professor Sakuragi SSM.png" should be moved. Also, does Professor Cerise need his own category? Professor Ivy doesn't have one. Although, admittedly, she appeared much less... --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:38, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
Exactly. Cerise has appeared in almost every episode of the new series so far. - Chosen (Talk) 20:09, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
Should have asked this a while back but could you change File:Lombre DP139.png to File:Lombre anime.png please--BigDocFan (talk) 20:52, 24 April 2020 (UTC)


I agree that the version of the Yamper image you uploaded is a happier one, but I personally chose the version you replaced because it showed more of Yamper's body than a view directly from the front. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:34, 3 February 2020 (UTC)

Do you think the happier expression is more important than showing more of the Pokémon? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:15, 3 February 2020 (UTC)

Crop request

I've screenshotted a better quality image of Ash greeting Corphish.png but I'm not good with cropping the edges to remove the black borders. Any chance you could do it for me please? (talk) 19:04, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

Never mind, Finnish has cropped it instead.--BigDocFan (talk) 19:05, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

Ash Party Picture

Was wondering if you could sort out a minor issue regarding File:Ash Party SM.png. Rahl uploaded a more recent version with Naganadel and Incineroar but to me, there isn't really a good image of his updated team and the image featured Burnet's Munchlax. To avoid getting into any argument over this, was wondering if you could give us your thoughts. Me and Finnish both feel the original was better but if you feel the more recent is better, I'll go with it.--BigDocFan (talk) 17:14, 14 March 2020 (UTC)

After consulting with my peers, we agreed that the one with Torracat is a much better composed picture. - Chosen (Talk) 02:11, 15 March 2020 (UTC)

Hikaru Wazana

I'm having a bit of trouble with Hikaru Wazana. Earlier he asked me for advice on a collection of images he screenshotted from the preview for next week's episode, I adviced him to wait until the episode airs but instead, he went ahead and uploaded an image that was also not the right size. I hate to complain against fellow members but me and Finnish feel he is adding more work then necessary.--BigDocFan (talk) 15:14, 15 March 2020 (UTC)

Nurse Joy Chansey.png

There's a bit of trouble with ShallowShaddoll about an image I've uploaded. I replaced Nurse Joy Chansey.png with an image from today's episode which he reverted before uploading one with a logo visible. Rather then cause an edit war or argue, I would prefer an admin to make a ruling on the image--BigDocFan (talk) 11:59, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

Alpha Sapphire Boxart

Hey, I just uploaded an image depicting the artwork of Kyogre as shown in the boxart of Alpha Sapphire, and I mistankenly named it File:383Kyogre-Primal 2.png, when I actualy meant to name it 382Kyogre-Primal 2.png, which is the correct number. Could you please move it for me? I'll try to be more careful in the future. Suic12- (talk) 22:33, 14 April 2020 (UTC)

Done! - Chosen (Talk) 03:34, 15 April 2020 (UTC)

Can't Upload Image

So, I was looking at a page on Bulbapedia and it had a screenshot that was in Japanese, with a note above it that said it should be replaced with an English screenshot, so I made an account to change it because it would bug me until the end of time otherwise but I am unable to change it because this is a new account. Could you do it for me? The Bulbapedia page in question is [1] and the file in question is File:Kecleon_Shop_PMD2_PMD3.png. I'll host the image I wanted to upload at [2]. --Cesium55 (talk) 07:44, 16 April 2020 (UTC)

Hi Cesium! Welcome to Bulbapedia!
I would be happy to take on your request, but I would ask that the screenshot be at the normal resolution for one DS screen (256 × 192 pixels), like the one being used right now. Failing that, I should be able to make one with my own save file in a moment. - Chosen (Talk) 15:28, 16 April 2020 (UTC)
I updated my link to be original resolution. Sorry about that! --Cesium55 (talk) 23:21, 16 April 2020 (UTC)
Done! It should show up after the cache refreshes! - Chosen (Talk) 00:27, 17 April 2020 (UTC)

Move Request

Currently planning to upload better quality and sized images of Manalo Festival at Akala Island.png, File:Nanu praying at the Ruins of Abundance.png and File:Manalo Festival about to get underway.png but was wondering if you could simplify the titles.

File:Manalo Festival at Akala Island.png to Manalo Festival Ruins of Life.png
File:Manalo Festival about to get underway.png to Manalo Festival Ruins of Conflict.png
File:Nanu praying at the Ruins of Abundance.png to Manalo Festival Ruins of Abundance.png--BigDocFan (talk) 08:27, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
We've had some new dub names, Renji being Ren and Kikuna being Chrissa. I've also noticed a few images using Go instead of Goh, mainly those for Goh's Pokemon pages that aren't mainspaced--BigDocFan (talk) 17:45, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
"Go Garchomp drawing.png" needs to be moved to match Goh's dub name. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:40, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
Can you move "Nurse Joy New series.png"? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:10, 8 June 2020 (UTC)
I saw you just uploading a bunch of prerelease material, but you didn't move the picture I requested. Did you forget to do it, or do you just have more things to do first? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:03, 9 June 2020 (UTC)
Sorry. I took care of it. - Chosen (Talk) 14:39, 9 June 2020 (UTC)
Could you do the same with File:Officer Jenny New series.png please--BigDocFan (talk) 15:32, 9 June 2020 (UTC)
Done. - Chosen (Talk) 15:37, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

Actually, I just checked: there are still several dozen images which have "new series" in the title, in the description, or in both. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 22:27, 11 June 2020 (UTC)

I moved several instances of "new series" in the title to "JN". For logos or promtional materials (key art, posters) explictly referring to the Japanese release, I replaced "new series" with "2019".
You shouldn't need an admin's help to change uses of the old series names (not just "new series" to "Pokémon Journeys: The Series", but "Advanced Generation" to "Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire", et. al.). We may move instances like this for the previous series later, but I beleive they're on a much lower priority since they have already finished. - Chosen (Talk) 23:42, 11 June 2020 (UTC)
My apologies. I just couldn't move the images myself and figured I'd ask you to do it. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:09, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
Could you move Rocket Gachat.png to Rocket Prize Master.png please--BigDocFan (talk) 15:33, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
Done! - Chosen (Talk) 16:08, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, would do it myself but I think only admin have the capacity to do so--BigDocFan (talk) 16:12, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
Me again, been so busy I forgot to ask, could you move File:Ren Françoise.png to File:Ren Francois.png please--BigDocFan (talk) 16:20, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
Finished. - Chosen (Talk) 16:29, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
Could you move Kasuking Magikarp.png to Kasuking Kinking.png please as that's its nickname--BigDocFan (talk) 15:33, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
Done! - Chosen (Talk) 22:54, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
Could you move File:Raihan Duraludon Max Rockfall.png to File:Raihan Gigantamax Duraludon Max Rockfall.png please--BigDocFan (talk) 22:01, 5 July 2020 (UTC)
Not using "Gigantamax" checks out with the other usages of (G-)Max Move images (File:Leon Charizard Max Lightning 1.png, File:Ash Pikachu G-Max Volt Crash 1.png). If anything, it's the Gigantamax Dreadnaw's moves that should be moved. - Chosen (Talk) 22:07, 5 July 2020 (UTC)
Could you move "Basic Tropical Curry anime.png" according to the suggestion? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:04, 27 July 2020 (UTC)
Did you miss the above post, or haven't you just gotten around to it yet? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:32, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, I had to turn in early yesterday. I took care of it. - Chosen (Talk) 20:28, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

No probs Chosen, another request for you when you get a chance, could you move to Water type Friendship Corsola.png Rito Corsola.png and Water type Friendship Seaking.png to Marin Seaking.png please--BigDocFan (talk) 21:59, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
Done! - Chosen (Talk) 23:02, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
I made a mistake when uploading an image, could you change Raihan's Gigantamax Duraludon TW.png‎‎ to Raihan Gigantamax Duraludon TW.png‎‎. Being able to change image names is something I envy of moderators and admin--BigDocFan (talk) 19:53, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
Could you also change Leon Dragapault Lock On TW.png to Leon Dragapult Lock On TW.png please--BigDocFan (talk) 20:16, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
Sorry to keep bothering you, I'm not paying much attention right now, Leon Dragapault G-Max Wildfire TW.png to Leon Charizard G-Max Wildfire TW.png--BigDocFan (talk) 20:22, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

Reporting user and thoughts about Autoconfirmed treshold

I've just seen this user's contributions while looking for Uncategorized files. All his files are uncategorized and without license, even his pre-autocorfimed contributions are vandalism.

Also, see here.

This yet another case make me think about the need of increasing the treshold to become an Autoconfirmed user, here in Archives (in Bulbapedia, it's much higher) or, at least, explain to new Archives users how, and why, to categorize or licensing more efficently. Laspandrea (talk) 09:34, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

As of now, the Archives shares its autoconfirmed threshold with Bulbapedia, meaning edits from both here and Bulbapedia proper contribute to auto-confirmation status. Changing that threshold would have a larger impact on the website as a whole.
While this user's edits may have been misguided, the time to call them out and warn them has long since passed. Meanwhile, since becoming auto-confirmed, their contributions have been nothing but constructive. Lastly, they have not been active since late February. With all due respect, I ultimately do not see a problem here. - Chosen (Talk) 14:06, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

Farfetch'd Night Slash

Couldn't the previous image of Ash's Farfetch'd using Night Slash fit for both it and Goh's Farfetch'd, instead of just the latter? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:02, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

I picked the new image because it shows the move being used successfully and making contact. I wouldn't be opposed using the old image at File:Goh Farfetch'd Night Slash.png for the Night Slash move page, however. - Chosen (Talk) 01:03, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

Renamed article images

Thank you for starting to move images about game characters whose articles were recently renamed. Can you also do that for images about Frontier Brains and my other moved articles I may have forgotten about? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:35, 21 September 2020 (UTC)

As in, the links to the renamed articles on Archives, and maybe also image titles. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 21:08, 21 September 2020 (UTC)

Please move

Hi Chosen, hope you are safe and well. I was wondering if you could move Heracross SM121.png to Heracross gender difference anime.png please--BigDocFan (talk) 21:53, 7 October 2020 (UTC)

Done! - Chosen (Talk) 23:42, 7 October 2020 (UTC)


Got a few requests for you please, can you

Change Surskit SM071.png to Surskit anime.png
Change Masquerain SM071.png to Masquerain anime.png
Change Huntail SM071.png to Huntail anime.png
Delete Lumineon SM071.png please--BigDocFan (talk) 12:16, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
Done! - Chosen (Talk) 13:35, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, I do regret when uploading those images using SM071 instead of anime, this way images from any episode could be used with that name--BigDocFan (talk) 13:43, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
Could you delete Takuya Kirimoto.jpg as it turns out he doesn't actually voice Rose so won't be entitled to his own page--BigDocFan (talk) 19:02, 25 October 2020 (UTC)


Just noticed the image I uploaded for Zamazenta Crowned Shield anime.png is a duplicate of your Rusted Shield anime.png, same with the Rusted Sword anime.png and Zacian--BigDocFan (talk) 20:55, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

Yeah. It seems had the images of the holding the items confused with the images of them actually transformed. - Chosen (Talk) 20:57, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for sorting it out, I'm hoping the Hero duo anime page I've started on my userpage will get mainspaced.--BigDocFan (talk) 20:59, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
I've done it again I see, might leave uploading the images to you so we don't get any conflicting images.--BigDocFan (talk) 21:01, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
Yeah don't worry about it, I'll take it from here. - Chosen (Talk) 21:02, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
Any chance of an image of Zacian and Zamazenta together when you get a chance.--BigDocFan (talk) 21:11, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
I'll look for a good shot. If all else fails, I can get the one of them as "spirits" at the end of the episode. - Chosen (Talk) 21:13, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

Template tweak

I must say, I like the look of the new anime location template you've put into use. However, I would like to point out a small detail that should be corrected: "Black & White" and "Sun & Moon" show up as "Black and White" and "Sun and Moon" respectively, making them redirect links. Do you think you could correct that? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:38, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

I didn't realize TPCI made them inconisteint like that... I'll fix it. - Chosen (Talk) 14:20, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
The "Location/Movie" link that's supposed to lead to M15 instead leads to M14. Also, there's at least one Pikachu short location image I found. What variation of the location template should be used for it? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 22:57, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
Fixed the M15 link. The Pikachu shorts are in a sort of grey area I honestly was not thinking of when I made the template. Considering I already used "Template/Anime" for the XY movie prequel shorts, however, I would just stick with that for now; as far as I know, we don't have a lot of Pikachu short location images to begin with. - Chosen (Talk) 23:22, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
Okay. Should I use the region at the end of the template, or side story? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 23:29, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
If the short is associated with a movie, use the region. Otherwise, side story. - Chosen (Talk) 23:31, 8 December 2020 (UTC)

Just wondering: wouldn't Jirachi be a fitting Pokémon to represent the Emerald chapter with Sceptile? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:32, 15 December 2020 (UTC)

The idea with Smoochum was to have Crystal, a Pokédex holder and supporting character in the Emerald chapter, some representation in the template, as the GSC and HGSS chapters are already represented by Gold and Silver. - Chosen (Talk) 06:35, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
Makes sense. Did you notice that Ht14 edited the second Emerald Pokémon to Surskit? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:23, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
I did not. It's okay if changes are made, I just wanted to explain my reasoning back there. - Chosen (Talk) 16:19, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
Figured as much. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:54, 16 December 2020 (UTC)


Sorry to keep bothering you with name change requests, could you change Eating Competition Heatmor.png to Eating Contest Heatmor.png--BigDocFan (talk) 21:11, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

Me again, can you move Goh Skwovet Bullet Seed.png to Goh Skovet Bullet Seed.png--BigDocFan (talk) 21:30, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
Me this time. There are several Battle Frontier facility images from the anime with "interior", which are basically like the "battlefield" images already in use, but lower quality. Could you delete the unused "interior" images? Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 23:06, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
Done. - Chosen (Talk) 23:22, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
Thank you. Could you also delete the unused "Bewear's den SM004.png"? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 23:29, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
Done - Chosen (Talk) 23:32, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
Sorry to keep asking, but "Cerulean City SM042.png" is unused. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:00, 9 December 2020 (UTC)
Also adding "Team Rocket Alola HQ anime.png" and the "Ruins of the Titan" redirects to the "Colossus Ruins" images to that list. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:30, 9 December 2020 (UTC)
Done - Chosen (Talk) 00:20, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
Thank you. However, you did miss the redirects for the Colossus Ruins hidden chamber and stone tablet pages. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:04, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
Also, "Sakuragi Park concept art.png" should be moved to match the dub name. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:12, 10 December 2020 (UTC)

Done - Chosen (Talk) 14:33, 10 December 2020 (UTC)

Several requests:
  • Lake of Life Celebi shrine.png is basically M04 Shrine.png, just from the past instead of the present day. It should probably be moved to match the latter's title better.
  • Pallet Town Radio Station and Todd Snap's home images are both jpg instead of png, and could also use an improvement in quality.
  • There are two images of Mt. Pyre from Pokémon Adventures. One by Pattyman (whom I really hope to see return from their lengthy hiatus someday, BTW) and one by me. The only difference in their titles is that mine has a period after "Mt", while Patty's has not Please delete my image. It was uploaded without me realizing the image already existed in a much better quality.
There may be more requests that I simply don't remember now, but I'll come back to those if I remember them. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:39, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
Now I remember! There are unnecessary redirects for the Pokémon Iceberg Rave setting and track images that should be deleted. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:10, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
* Moves "Lake of Life Celebi shrine" to "Lake of Life Celebi shrine past" and "M04 shrine" to "Lake of Life Celebi shrine", in that order.
* Added {{jpg}} to "Pallet Town Radio Station.jpg" and "Todd Snap's home.JPG"
* Deleted your image.
* Deleted the redirects. - Chosen (Talk) 05:27, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
"The Propreitor's Cafe.png" should be moved according to the suggestion, and "Sign of the Sea Crown.png" has a typo in the title. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:53, 12 December 2020 (UTC)
Done! - Chosen (Talk) 16:35, 12 December 2020 (UTC)
I've uploaded png versions of the two jpg images I mentioned earlier. They can be removed now. Also, I think every anime location is now removed from the "Location artwork" category, unless I'm mistaken. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:02, 13 December 2020 (UTC)

And done. I beleive I just cleaned up the Mystery Dungeon images too. If you want to finish up the Colo/XD images ({{Location/Side}}), that would really help me out. - Chosen (Talk) 17:47, 13 December 2020 (UTC)

With pleasure. It's been fun using these new templates, and I wish I'd have started it sooner. Oh, well. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:27, 13 December 2020 (UTC)
I hope I'm not doing anything wrong by removing the "Location artwork" category from the RTDX Friend Area images. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:42, 13 December 2020 (UTC)
Since that is techically artwork, I would prefer you did not. - Chosen (Talk) 05:54, 14 December 2020 (UTC)
Gotcha. Also, I think I got all the remaining Colosseum and XD locations. Also also, The Great Butler uploaded a new version of Devon Corporation anime.png from the third Mega Evolution Special. I figured since it's listed in the list of XY episodes along with the main series episodes, it should be classified as an XY location instead of a side series location. Am I correct? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:59, 14 December 2020 (UTC)
Nevermind. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:18, 14 December 2020 (UTC)
Please move "Lilycove Inn Adventures.png" to "Cove Lily Motel Adventures.png". --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 23:55, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
And "Pokémon Musical building anime.png" to "Musical Theater anime.png", please. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:57, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
In addition to those, I think "Poni Altar Adventures.png" could probably drop the "Adventures" but from the end, since it's a location exclusive to the manga. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:14, 18 December 2020 (UTC)

Done! - Chosen (Talk) 18:27, 20 December 2020 (UTC)

Can you change Magmar JN001.png to Magmar anime.png please?--BigDocFan (talk) 20:16, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, could you also change AshAndRitchie.png to Ash and Ritchie.png--BigDocFan (talk) 20:36, 21 December 2020 (UTC)
All set! - Chosen (Talk) 03:02, 22 December 2020 (UTC)

Manga template

I was just': about to ask if you'll be creating a manga locations template, but you did it before I got myself to ask about it. Very nice! Other mangas are to follow after Adventures, I presume? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:41, 15 December 2020 (UTC)

They are. Right now, the problem is sussing out which ones could use a dedicated separate template. The (non-anime) Pocket Monsters seems right, given its long run, for example. - Chosen (Talk) 06:35, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
Definitely. The Electric Tale of Pikachu also likely deserves its own category. Some other strong contenders, IMO, are Ash & Pikachu and Pokémon Zensho. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:23, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
Golden Boys and DPA could also deserve their own categories, I think. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 21:34, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
Movie adaptations too, maybe? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:57, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
All good examples, thank you! - Chosen (Talk) 00:04, 18 December 2020 (UTC)
No problem! Always glad to help! --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 01:00, 18 December 2020 (UTC)
All Adventures location image templates have been converted. I hope the other categories and template variations will be in use soon. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:14, 18 December 2020 (UTC)

Any word of your Sandbox templates being approved? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:11, 26 December 2020 (UTC)

I will likely push them foward next Monday, when I have off from work and the holidays are over. Hang tight until then. - Chosen (Talk) 14:28, 26 December 2020 (UTC)
Will do. Looking forward to it. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:04, 26 December 2020 (UTC)

Category suggestion

I feel there should be a subcategory for "Location artwork" that depicts Gyms. What do you think? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 23:37, 19 December 2020 (UTC)

I don't see why not. We already have a category for Pokémon Centers. - Chosen (Talk) 16:14, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
My thought exactly. Do you think you could add the option of adding Badge images to the location templates to be used in case of a Gym image, or would that be too difficult to add? PS. I hope you've not missed my requests two sections above. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:50, 20 December 2020 (UTC)--FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:50, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
The removal of the badge images was an agreed-upon decsion by staff, as we felt it added too many uneeeded conditionals to the template that became obsolete with the debut of Gen VII and Trials, which is why we never adapted a similar display system to the trial sites.
As for your requests, I will see to them shortly. I've been busy with my new job recently due to the holidays, but I should have some time before I need to get ready for today's shift. Sorry for the wait! - Chosen (Talk) 18:15, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
I understand. I'll get to adding the Gym category to the appropriate images when I feel like it and have the time.
Better late than never. Thank you! --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 21:04, 20 December 2020 (UTC)

Paul Chimchar images

I notice we've still got a new images listed as Paul Chimchar. Could they be moved to Ash Chimchar?

Paul Chimchar Fire Spin.png
Paul Chimchar Flame Wheel.png
Paul Chimchar Dig.png
Paul Chimchar Ember.png
Paul Chimchar Flamethrower.png--BigDocFan (talk) 13:21, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
Moved Flame Wheel, Flamethrower to "Ash Chimchar". The others still depict Chimchar when it was with Paul. - Chosen (Talk) 15:25, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
Fair enough, Happy New Year to you--BigDocFan (talk) 15:42, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

Move Requests

Could you move Wobbuffet initial appearance.png to Benny Wobbuffet please?--BigDocFan (talk) 22:43, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

Done! - Chosen (Talk) 02:22, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

An unusual request

Me and BDF ended up upgrading "Ash and Pokémon captured.png" simultaneously with the exact same screenshot. Could you remove or ask someone else to remove my version of the upload from the file history, since it is obviously unnecessary? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:47, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

I can revert it, but there's no need to remove images from the upload history unless they're harmful or vandalistic in nature. - Chosen (Talk) 23:14, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
I know. It was just a miscommunication between me and BDF that led to the both of us uploading the same image simultaneously, and I feel embarrassed about it, because it was mainly my fault for flip-flopping in regards whether I wanted to be the one to upload it or not. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 23:40, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
Just realized what you did. I or BDF could've done the reversion ourselves. The point why I came here was to have my upload version deleted and give full credit to BDF as the uploader. And now you're technically the last one due to the reversion. Basically, what I want is to have BDF's second upgrade of the file be the last thing visible on the file's "File history" segment. I know, I'm a weird person. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:21, 5 January 2021 (UTC)
Again, since there's inhierently nothing wrong or rule-breaking about any of the pictures uploaded, I don't see the need for further action. - Chosen (Talk) 14:45, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

Pokemon Masters missing images

So, it seems like some icons in the Pokémon Masters category are missing.

From what I could tell from a glance:

Mega Swampert
Vs Scottie
Vs Bettie
All shiny Eggmon

Alongside some of the icons for the next Egg Event:


There might be more missing, but those were the ones I noticed at a glance.

Will these be uploaded eventually? Thank you in advance! - unsigned comment from Arranos (talkcontribs)

I haven't touched Masters EX content as of late, so I wouldn't know much about why we're missing the assets we're missing, though I imagine Scottie and Bettie might be related to their customizable appearances. I would try asking someone who's more active with that game. - Chosen (Talk) 14:54, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

Anime image

Could you change Fossilized Fish.png and Fossilized Bird.png to Fossilized Fish anime.png and Fossilized Bird anime.png please--BigDocFan (talk) 21:46, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

Done! - Chosen (Talk) 21:51, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
I know that this image was uploaded a week early but could you change Rinto and Gallade.png to Rinto Gallade.png--BigDocFan (talk) 16:27, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
Done! - Chosen (Talk) 17:29, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
Could you change Pokéstar Studios Theater.png to Pokéstar Studios Theater anime.png please--BigDocFan (talk) 20:08, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

Me again, could you move Ekans anime.png, Weedle anime.png and Nidoran F anime.png so they read Vermilion Forest (Pokémon name) please--BigDocFan (talk) 18:02, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Done. Weedle anime and Ekans anime were also reverted to their previous iterations. - Chosen (Talk) 22:44, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Thanks, sorry to keep giving you move requests.--BigDocFan (talk) 23:03, 15 January 2021 (UTC)


We have a bit of a conflict going on over a few images of Goh's Pokemon that KirinFire has uploaded. Fearing that this might result in an edit war, I'd like you to have a look and decided. Images include Goh Tentacool.png, Goh Venomoth.png, Goh Golurk.png and Goh Parasect.png--BigDocFan (talk) 10:06, 12 January 2021 (UTC)


Hey, could you delete first versions of files: File:Fossilized Fish anime.png and File:Fossilized Dino anime.png? I don't want anyone to mix them up even more.--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 18:18, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

I don't see a reason to go that far, given that they're not vandal edits. I'll watch them and if there's any upload warring going on between the two files, they will be undone and promptly locked from editing. - Chosen (Talk) 18:30, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
I have to confess when I uploaded the images, I wasn't entirely sure which one was which so sorry about that--BigDocFan (talk) 18:54, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
The Fossilized Fish and Drake images should swap places. Probably the easiest would be to upload each image onto the other file and then edit the image links accordingly over at Bulbapedia's side. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:35, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
The current pictures used match the bag sprites actually used for each one in the games. Since they are not mentioned by any other name in the anime, we can only really go by those names. - Chosen (Talk) 18:12, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Gladion images

Andre1070 has uploaded a few images with poor title images and not so good quality ones, was wondering if you could help improve the quality and change the names

Young Gladion in a Swimsuit.png to Young Gladion Swimsuit.png
Young Gladion 2.png to Young Gladion Outfit 2.png
Gladion With Mohn.png to Gladion and Mohn.png
Young Gladion 1.png to Young Gladion Outfit 1.png
As well as upgrading the quality if you can, could you also do Gladion New Outfit.png--BigDocFan (talk) 21:25, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
I moved the requested files, but seeing as List of clothing in the anime is for "main characters", and is already long list to begin with, I removed Gladion from it. - Chosen (Talk) 01:00, 2 February 2021 (UTC)

Deletion requests

Could you delete the following images:

  • Kanto Route 19 anime.png
  • Kanto Route 19 beach anime.png
  • Hoenn Route 104 Adventures.png

The first two images aren't on Route 19 but Seafoam Island, as I've later realized. And the last image may actually be from Petalburg City, which already has a much better quality image. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:32, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

All three deleted as per author request. - Chosen (Talk) 17:27, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
Next, I'd like to have the low-quality "Indigo Plateau JBA.png" be deleted and "Pokémon League JBA.png" be moved in its place. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:07, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
Done. - Chosen (Talk) 18:03, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
I uploaded a combined Machop/Machoke image for there isn't much need for Machoke EP265.png so can you delete?--BigDocFan (talk) 19:45, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

Done! - Chosen (Talk) 17:17, 13 February 2021 (UTC)
The dub nickname for the Centiskorch in JN042 is "Centi". Could you move all the images of it appropriately? Japanese nickname was "Maru-chan". --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:56, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
Likewise, Kaiser Blaziken is translated as "Emperor Blaziken". --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:11, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
Done! - Chosen (Talk) 14:45, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
I was slightly wrong! It's actually "Centy", not "Centi". --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:52, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

Done. - Chosen (Talk) 14:10, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

Move request from me now, could you move Jessie Chewtle Water Gun.png, Jessie Chewtle Bite.png and Jessie Chewtle Headbutt.png so they are Team Rocket Chewtle (move).png and Jessie and Chewtle.png to Team Rocket and Chewtle please.--BigDocFan (talk) 15:17, 6 March 2021 (UTC)

Looking for places to help

Hey, I'm new to the archives and wanted to help with the cleanup, but I have no idea what I could do. All the images I find are categorized, summarized, and good quality. Is there anything in particular I could help with? Kevorama0205 (talk) 02:13, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

These Location templates should be updated to one of their applicable subtemplates where applicable. A list of Location templates can be found here. I would focus particularly on images from the Pokémon Pocket Monsters series, which use {{Location/PPM}}. - Chosen (Talk) 04:24, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
The Unova setting on the PPM template creates a link to an unknown page "KalosMonsters BW" (It's the BW Fire and Thunder manga that the image is from), so I'm not sure what I should do about this Kevorama0205 (talk) 22:10, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
It should be fixed now. Thanks for pointing that out. - Chosen (Talk) 22:31, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
Okay, finished all the PPM ones (and did some XD and ORAS ones because there were templates for those too). There don't seem to be any more mainspace templates that apply for the rest of the list, as far as I can tell. - unsigned comment from Kevorama0205 (talkcontribs)
Thanks! That helps a lot! - Chosen (Talk) 03:17, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
If I had seen you already started continuing with this, I'd have been more than happy to help too! Just let me know whenever you give templates to some remaining location image sources, and I'll be glad to help you convert templates for them! Some mangas that come to mind are movie adaptations, Pokémon Battle Frontier, and How I Became a Pokémon Card. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:15, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

I can make one for the movie adaptations, though it will only contain the ones for Darkrai, Diancie, Hoopa, I Choose You!, and I Choose You Remix, as those are the only ones with links to the old location Template. As for the rest, I might prefer to just use the generic manga location template I've had kicking around for a bit. - Chosen (Talk) 22:30, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

Thanks! Although, given that you gave even the Masters Trailer locations their own article with only two images, I could easily see the BF and HIBAPC mangas getting their own categories too, given that there's surprisingly many from each. Especially the latter. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:15, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
Point taken; I'll give it a shot now. - Chosen (Talk) 23:11, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
