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.

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)
Could you move Mothim DP163.png to Mothim anime.png please--BigDocFan (talk) 20:08, 19 May 2021 (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)
No problem, done! - Chosen (Talk) 13:59, 31 July 2021 (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)
I have upgraded Paul Chimchar Dig.png to when it was used under Ash's command, can that be changed please?--BigDocFan (talk) 15:27, 10 July 2021 (UTC)
Done. Make sure you update the summary to indicate what episode the screenshot was taken from. - Chosen (Talk) 15:33, 10 July 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)

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)

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)

Understood. Thank you for the information. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:16, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for the templates. I implemented them as soon as you mainspaced them, and I think I got them all. But I still keep finding location images that would fit under the same category, including a couple different manga. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:37, 28 March 2021 (UTC)

I was planning on leaving the "Location artwork" category for actual artwork that does not reflect in-game assets. With this in mind, it should be removed from the Rescue team camp (Friend Area) artwork from the recent MD remakes, as opposed to the decision I made on them earlier. I am also considering saving a Snap series template for New Snap's coming release. - Chosen (Talk) 21:24, 28 March 2021 (UTC)

Those sound like good ideas. As for mangas that have more than one location image, they are GDZ, PBW, and PDPV. Then there's a group of lone manga location images. Should there be some sort of separate category for them? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:55, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
I think what I'll do is retrofit the generic template to support the remaining mangas, maybe rolling back a few of the lesser ones into it. The Template will include a [[Category:{{{2|}}} locations]]] input to give them their own categories. Manga, going foward, should have at least ten images in their series to have their own template. - Chosen (Talk) 17:08, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
Furthermore, I decided to place location images without their own dedicated fairuse template in the base Manga locations category. - Chosen (Talk) 17:22, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
Okay. And I see you already dealt with all the manga location images. Good work. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 21:08, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
Should those mangas have their own templates? I feel like they should. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 21:10, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
I chose to implement the hard limit of ten images for manga location templates simply due to the sheer volume of minor, lesser-known manga out there. I feel having a split for every single one of them is extraeneous. The unified Manga template can be edited easier to accomodate. - Chosen (Talk) 00:06, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

Unnecessary deletion?

Was the deletion of JN064.png really necessary? Said episode is definitely happening in one way or another later down the line.

MS acronyms

If I may, I'd like to make a suggestion. It bothers me that Burmy and Wormadam forms sprites use first letter of their types instead of form name like other Pokemon. What I mean is that these sprites, should be renamed:

 413MS.png File:413MS.png (stays the same)
413GMS.png File:413GMS.png to File:413SMS.png (acronym from Sandy Cloak instead of Ground)
413SMS.png File:413SMS.png to File:413TMS.png (acronym from Trash Cloak instead Steel)

and if we're at it, I check other Pokemon with forms and similar cleanup could be done for Rotom, Castform, Lycanroc.--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 13:27, 25 April 2021 (UTC)

While I'm in support of it, it actually goes a little deeper than that. This is a relic of back when Pokémon didn't release worldwide, and letters of Pokémon forms, for the sake of menu sprites and game sprites, needed proper places to go even before we got their offical English names. The changes associated with this suggestion would require a lot of infastructural change on both Bulbapedia and the Archives that would be best done by BulbaBot, which, unfortunately, I do not have access to. If you would like to bring this up with a member of the Advisory Council, you are welcome to do so. - Chosen (Talk) 00:12, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

Could you sort this out, either by uploading their image as Ash Charizard or having a word as admin, the last thing I want is an edit war--BigDocFan (talk) 19:57, 5 May 2021 (UTC)

Never mind, it has been sorted though what do you think of the image being used as Ash Charizard.png--BigDocFan (talk) 20:01, 5 May 2021 (UTC)
I have no complaints. Better than the image you linked. - Chosen (Talk) 23:45, 5 May 2021 (UTC)
I'm sorry I misunderstood the question. I prefer the one currently being used. - Chosen (Talk) 00:29, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

Ash Bulbasaur Take Down.png

Was going to upload for Ash Bulbasaur Take Down.png but noticed an earlier image was deleted on the grounds of Move shots need to be of the performing of the move, not the ordering of it. Is this image suitable or should I just leave it.--BigDocFan (talk) 09:18, 13 May 2021 (UTC)

Is there a scene where it makes contact? If not, I would just leave it. - Chosen (Talk) 13:41, 13 May 2021 (UTC)
There's no shot of contact, but the move itself is all about charging, and I feel Bulbapedia should have images of all the moves by Ash's Pokémon. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:42, 13 May 2021 (UTC)
Given that there was precedent given for its deletion, and there's no actual shot of the actual move, I still don't think it needs to be uploaded. - Chosen (Talk) 15:57, 13 May 2021 (UTC)
To me, Bulbasaur charging ahead was it using the move. That's what Take Down is all about. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:05, 15 May 2021 (UTC)

Delete request

I've uploaded a png image of File:Team_Rocket_Mecha_SM016.jpg so could you delete it please?--BigDocFan (talk) 16:08, 27 May 2021 (UTC)

Image dispute

I feel that Goh Raboot.png needs a better screenshot, but both Rahl and Reinhartmax seem to disagree on my choice. What's your opinion? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:04, 28 May 2021 (UTC)

I like the first one better, personally. It's more natural and indicative of Raboot's difference in attitude. - Chosen (Talk) 15:34, 28 May 2021 (UTC)
Okay. Now Rahl is disagreeing on Infernape's new Dig image. I think it's clear enough and shows a new animation for the move not seen before with Infernape (hands glowing), but Rahl doesn't like it. Your opinion? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:30, 28 May 2021 (UTC)
The interfernce caused by Moltres's Fire Spin makes the image too busy, and makes it hard to tell what the move is doing exactly at a glanced, when sized down. - Chosen (Talk) 23:40, 28 May 2021 (UTC)

Unusual request #2

I just uploaded Gladion's second VS model from Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Could you edit Template:vstrainersprite so that it's in use there in place of the SM version? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:46, 7 June 2021 (UTC)

Upload Request

I've uploaded a new header for EP165 but as it is protected, could you upload it for me. I feel this is better as its more than just Brock's Zubat using Supersonic and doesn't give away any spoilers and is better quality (talk) 21:48, 8 June 2021 (UTC)

Or better yet, could the protection be lifted? It was protected over a decade ago, so I feel lifting the protection should be safe now. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 21:50, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
If it can, please just do that so that BDF can upload the upgraded image. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 21:55, 8 June 2021 (UTC)

I've recently upgraded the image for EP186.png, the only problem is the new image doesn't match the Template:MisrepresentedMerchandise it is also used in.--BigDocFan (talk) 20:43, 9 June 2021 (UTC)

OK. For now, I changed the image on the template to Mimikyu's stock art. - Chosen (Talk) 03:28, 10 June 2021 (UTC)

Articuno Images

I was wondering if the Articuno move images should have Snowtop Mountain Articuno Move at the top, makes it easier for the move section of the page but when I asked Force Fire about moving the Powder Snow image, he said I think the title is fine where it is, for simplicity sake. Was wondering what you thought--BigDocFan (talk) 14:36, 10 June 2021 (UTC)

Personally, I'd prefer them to be conistent. Since "File:Articuno Ice Beam.png" is already occupied by M02's Articuno, I would rather have the move files have more descriptive names. That said, we can shorten "Snowtop Mountain" to "Johto", matching the disambiguation tag of the Bulbapedia article. - Chosen (Talk) 15:11, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
Alternatively, "Articuno anime", matching File:Articuno anime.png. - Chosen (Talk) 15:13, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
Articuno anime does sound a better title.--BigDocFan (talk) 15:48, 10 June 2021 (UTC)

New DPP Shiny Sprites Uploaded but Not Working

Hey there, I wasn't sure who to contact about this. I've known for awhile that the wiki needed a bunch of the animated sprites from Gen 4 to be uploaded, so I finally got around to uploading some shiny sprites from DPP (Sentret, Furret, Spinarak, Pineco, Seedot). However, despite uploading animated PNG files, it seems most of them are not animating, other than Sentret. Any idea why this happening? Thanks so much!--Deoxys386 (talk) 23:31, 15 July 2021 (UTC)

Disagreement with Pikablu

Me and Pikablu are having a disagreement regarding Iris Haxorus.png. I think the composite image version is better, as it shows Haxorus's whole body, and composite images are hardly unprecedented in Bulbapedia. Pikablu, however, is steadfastly refusing to accept anything but 1280×720 as an appropriate size for the image. What's your opinion? As I said, I'd personally prefer the composite image, since it shows more and features Haxorus completely. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:29, 20 August 2021 (UTC)

I have locked the image as-is for now. While there are no hard-and-fast rules against composite images, the places the images are used should be put into consideration when doing so. Iris Haxorus.png is used in Template:ActivePoké on Iris's page, which looks awkward when one image is of dramatically different dimensions than the others. On that basis, I elected to lean in favor of the undoctored image.
With this in mind, I also reverted Gary Blastoise.png. - Chosen (Talk) 19:33, 20 August 2021 (UTC)
Okay. Fair enough. Sorry about the trouble. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:36, 20 August 2021 (UTC)
Another disagreement, plus something else. This time, Pikablu reversed my version of Goh Inteleon.png. And in addition, I feel they were kinda rude towards me in the upload summary. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:06, 28 August 2021 (UTC)

New template(s)

With Pokémon Evolutions starting to air next week, we probably need new location and move templates to be used for it. And the head image template probably needs to be edited too in order for it to adapt to the Evolutins head images. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:53, 2 September 2021 (UTC)

The move template doesn't need to be changed, but I did update the anime location template. As for the head image templates, I can make ones for the anime miniseries, since they're frequent enough now to need them. - Chosen (Talk) 04:15, 3 September 2021 (UTC)

Additional Requests

The release of JN071 has confirmed Hodaka's dub name to be Amaranth and Tsurugi to be Quillon so could you change the relevant images please?--BigDocFan (talk) 19:27, 13 November 2021 (UTC)

Force Fire moved most of the images, but a few images still retain Quillon's Japanese name. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 13:40, 14 November 2021 (UTC)

The Journal and Secret Potion items have been renamed as Guidebook and Secret Medicine in BDSP. Should the appropriate item sprite images be moved? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:30, 20 November 2021 (UTC)
Following the example set by File:Bag Up-Grade Sprite.png and File:Bag Upgrade Sprite.png, I will simply upload the new sprites to the new names. This should do for now, but given the new style of the item sprites, we may need further deliberation on how to proceed, especially with another core series game right around the corner. - Chosen (Talk) 12:20, 20 November 2021 (UTC)

Right now, the Journeys manga only has one location image, which I don't consider enough for its own template.

Menu sprite

Could you edit the Menu sprite template to fit Legends: Arceus? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:48, 31 January 2022 (UTC)

Legends: Arceus already has its own template, owing to the fact that it has more intricacies than previous menu sprites, namely separate shiny sprites, that make it more in line with the menu sprites of the side games Colosseum and XD. The scaled-down sprites are intended to be used as placeholders, though I can't see why Template:LAMenu can't be used for those as well. - Chosen (Talk) 14:09, 31 January 2022 (UTC)

I do have them downloaded, the problem is figuring out what to do with them. Now that we have HD, 128x128 item sprites as the default, we need to ensure they can be intergrated into existing templates sucessfully. - Chosen (Talk) 17:45, 31 January 2022 (UTC)
They don't need to replace "File:Bag_Figy_Berry_Sprite.png" files. They will be used only in context of PLA. If they really need to be small then I don't see a problem always putting them in a template that scales them down to 24x24 size, big pictures look better than pixel sprites. If you won't like it, it could be only a temporal solution for now just to not hinder other works on wiki.--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 18:01, 31 January 2022 (UTC)

BDSP Badge models

Hi Chosen. I've just spent the last little while ripping & rendering the badge models from BDSP. As far as I can tell, these don't appear anywhere on the archives, or indeed anywhere online. You can see the fruits of my efforts on imgur here. With that said, I'm reluctant to upload over the Ken Sugimori artwork that's already there (Coal Badge.png etc). I don't see any guidance on the Archives:Manual of style on which is preferred. Should we move the current images to Sugimori XXXX Badge.png or just leave well enough alone? Lagnic (talk) 17:57, 11 April 2022 (UTC)

I'm leaning towards uploading over them because they come from a newer game. We did something similar when ORAS came out. - Chosen (Talk) 18:20, 11 April 2022 (UTC)
Grand stuff, I'll get them uploaded so. They can always be reverted if a different decision is reached in the future. Lagnic (talk) 19:58, 11 April 2022 (UTC)

Thoughts On Move

Thread Thoughts? Hopefully gets mentioned to other staff members, aside from Daniel Carrero. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) 13:51, 12 April 2022 (UTC)

If we're going to go that far, I would rather split the template by Generation (for the core series) and series (for the sidegames/spin-offs). I made one such example here. - Chosen (Talk) 14:24, 12 April 2022 (UTC)
I was hoping to keep the conversation over at the template talk page. Anyways, I have noticed we are missing categories for the core series in general. I have made the mistake that Category:Blue (game) refers to the character, not the Game Boy game. I would take it all the way and categorize by a game-by-game basis, like on MarioWiki. However, I do like the subcategories here on Bulbagarden Archives because MarioWiki clumps sprites, 3D renders, art, screenshots, etc. into one category. What you are suggesting is grouping a game like FireRed and LeafGreen with Ruby and Sapphire. Same core engine, but entirely different games. Grouping a game like Emerald with Ruby and Sapphire is a bit strange too because it is more refined and has a tweaked storyline exclusive to it. Generation III --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) 00:12, 13 April 2022 (UTC)
Looking at how the template is coded, I see why you want to categorize by generation. Exceptions do apply, like with Stadium, Colosseum, XD, and Battle Revolution for example. I was thinking of a simple code tweak to be like |xd={{bp|Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness|XD}}[[Category:Pokémon XD moves]]|, but for each side game (MediaWiki switch). --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) 02:08, 13 April 2022 (UTC)
The problem with adding this on to Template:Mv as-is is the potential bloat it could add to template. We have previously separated Template:Location, Template:Vstrainersprite, and Template:Gamesprite on that basis.
As for grouping the core series, I think the categories should be as expansive as possible without defeating the purpose. Absorb has the same animation in all three iterations of Generation III, but the picture currently depicts FireRed and LeafGreen. Unless you plan on uploading identical animations for Ruby and Sapphire, as well as Emerald, categorizing it as "Moves (Generation III)" makes more sense and takes up less space than "Moves (Ruby and Sapphire)", "Moves (FireRed and LeafGreen)", and "Moves (Emerald)". - Chosen (Talk) 03:10, 13 April 2022 (UTC)
I can only speak for the generations and supplemental side games (Stadium, XD, and Battle Revolution for example), but would it make sense to split up the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series games to have their own move template, as that is the only other game series I see on various move pages? Also, Category:Moves (game), wouldn't each category I am proposing be like a few hundred different moves for each game, where newer games would have more than older ones, as opposed to 10,000 images that includes every game ever? Special:WantedCategories could be a great tool to see how many images are generated for each category.
Also it would make things a bit easier to replace images. I am doing a little bit here and there to recapture the various moves in the Stadium games. I have a tab open for Category:Stadium and my uploads were mostly happening with me using that category as a starting point. I have noticed that these screenshots are overly large and blurry with more recent uploads File:Dream Eater Stad.png and early uploads had emulator glitches File:Twineedle Stad2.png. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) 03:50, 13 April 2022 (UTC)
To be clear, not opposed to "Category:Generation n moves" where it is a subcategory of each Generation n game. For game-specific categories, I am thinking of examples like but not limited to Teachy TV images for FireRed/LeafGreen category, first iteration Generation III Battle Tower images for Ruby/Sapphire and Crystal category, Battle Frontier images for Emerald, Platinum, and HeartGold/SoulSilver category, and Surfing Pikachu for Yellow category. Slashes indicate game pairings where images from both games are in the same category while commas or spaces separate categories. Like for example:

Generation I

Pocket Monsters Red/Green/Blue
Pokémon Red/Blue
Pokémon Yellow
Generation I moves
Generation I sprites
Generation I maps

Generation II

Pokémon Gold/Silver
Pokémon Crystal
Generation II moves
Generation II sprites
Generation II maps

Generation III

Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire
Pokémon FireRed/LeafGreen
Pokémon Emerald
Generation III moves
Generation III sprites
Generation III maps

etc. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) 04:38, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

I see that work has begun on integrating subcategories for moves: {{Mv/spin}} subtemplate of {{Mv}}. I see categories were created by you. I added additional parent categories. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) 16:08, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

Clean up

You can delete "File:Kabu SwSh concept art.png‎" because there are already "jpg" versions for all SwSh characters's concept arts. Also, here Category:Gif_images_to_be_converted_to_png you can delete Wailmer image, I sent png one. The icons for physical, special, status and unknown also have png versions, so I'd like you to replace them on protected bulbapedia pages (gif -> png), this would also help with images like "FireIC.gif".--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 21:38, 24 April 2022 (UTC)

I took care of the category sprites, with the provision that the RSE category sprites did not actually exist, and that I added them as custom sprites for Template:Ic.
The Wailmer card was previously deleted and restored, claiming there was a need for this .gif. We're confirming with the mod the restored the file if they still need it. - Chosen (Talk) 22:57, 24 April 2022 (UTC)
Thanks and sorry for the confusion. The "File:StatusIC RSE.png‎" "File:SpecialIC RSE.png" "File:PhysicalIC RSE.png" files should be deleted, these icons (with rounded corners) are from gen 4 I just checked that.--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 09:25, 25 April 2022 (UTC)

Can you make files like "File:NormalIC_Big.png" editable? Or if not, add category "Type icon" to them.--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 14:28, 27 April 2022 (UTC)

Category added. - Chosen (Talk) 23:30, 27 April 2022 (UTC)


In case it turns out that the order of these two episodes wasn't altered after all, can you swap the names of their head images to match the appropriate episode numbers? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:37, 2 May 2022 (UTC)

Done. - Chosen (Talk) 21:12, 2 May 2022 (UTC)

Shinka's images

The images uploaded by Shinka have assumed Trainer names. Neither the Onix nor the Gengar Trainers identities have been confirmed. And the images themselves, especially Hyper Beam, are unnecessary, as we have enough anime images of both. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:27, 7 July 2022 (UTC)

I have addressed the images. - Chosen (Talk) 03:04, 8 July 2022 (UTC)

HW again

Hikaru Wazana keeps uploading Journeys anime images from a source that's not as good quality as the one me and BDF use, meaning that they need to be upgraded once the better quality version surfaces. Me and BDF have tried to tell HW to stop this more than once, but to no avail. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:02, 2 September 2022 (UTC)

I understand this can be frustrating, but as long as HW is construcively contributing to the wiki, I do not think HW should be punished. I don't suppose you have shared this "source" with them? - Chosen (Talk) 20:17, 2 September 2022 (UTC)
We never actually did. And they've left Discord because they got frustrated of the constructive criticism I gave them, so I can't share the source with them in a place where doing that wouldn't be against Bulbagarden's rules. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 21:29, 2 September 2022 (UTC)

TMs SwSh sprites

I uploaded sprites for TMs from SwSh, which are 32x32, so could you edit this template to use them? It has both TMs and TRs so the difference of sprites clashes between them.--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 19:44, 15 September 2022 (UTC)

Done. - Chosen (Talk) 02:57, 16 September 2022 (UTC)

Physical and special icons

I've uploaded a lot of icons for move categories a while ago, could you fix this template so it won't have broken files?--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 17:37, 18 September 2022 (UTC)

The only file that was having trouble was Special RSE, which does not exist, and was supposed to redirect to Special IV. I've restored the redirect. - Chosen (Talk) 02:47, 19 September 2022 (UTC)
Well, I thought it would be better to not use file names like "SpecialIC RSE" since there are no icons for move categries in generation 3. It was when category depended on type. I also thought this template could be updated to use newer icons, liek form generation V or VI.--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 19:56, 19 September 2022 (UTC)
Done. I changed it to display icons from SMUSUM, since that was the last time they were somewhat similar in size. - Chosen (Talk) 20:21, 19 September 2022 (UTC)
Thank you very much!--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 11:41, 21 September 2022 (UTC)

Some concept arts

Can you unprotect:

File:Lysandre concept art.jpg
File:Professor Sycamore XY concept art.jpg
File:Torchic Beta.jpg
File:Red Concept Art.png

and change

File:Sugimori Noivern BW.png

from BW to XY?--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 18:27, 18 October 2022 (UTC)

Noivern moved. The protected files don't appear to be protected. Rather, when I'm on those pages, I appear to be logged off, and therefore, not even I can upload over them. I suggest giving it some time and trying again later; we may be experiencing some errors on our part. - Chosen (Talk) 20:56, 18 October 2022 (UTC)
Everything works now. THANKS!--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 14:10, 19 October 2022 (UTC)

Sorry to bother you again

I need you to rename these files:
File:Brcok OS concept art.png -> File:Brock OS concept art.png
File:Brcok face OS concept art.png -> File:Brock face OS concept art.png
File:Blacephalon SM concept art.jpg -> File:Blacephalon USUM concept art.jpg
and delete
File:Brock Season 1 settei.jpg

Deletion candidates

BlackKyuremEX has uploaded some images, but some of them are unused and unnecessary. Also, Alexa JN.png is unnecessary too, as its purpose is served by Brock Cilan JN.png. Can you delete BK's unused images and the Alexa image? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:13, 14 November 2022 (UTC)

May Journeys.png is also unused. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:00, 14 November 2022 (UTC)
Done. - Chosen (Talk) 13:58, 14 November 2022 (UTC)
Wallace DP077.png is a copy of Wallace anime.png and unused. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 21:01, 14 November 2022 (UTC)

I accidentally uploaded a file with an incorrect name while uploading VS models from SV. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 13:58, 20 February 2023 (UTC)
Done. - Chosen (Talk) 14:17, 20 February 2023 (UTC)

New VS template.

We need a new VS model template for Scarlet and Violet. Given you created the previous ones, can you make this one too? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:58, 22 November 2022 (UTC)

Done. - Chosen (Talk) 19:14, 22 November 2022 (UTC)

Move request(s) once more

Accidentally uploaded "VSOffice Worker SV.png" without the "SV" part. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:51, 27 November 2022 (UTC)

I've moved the image for you.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 12:56, 27 November 2022 (UTC)

Edited image

Hi, I uploaded this image Dialga/Palkia. Are edited images like this fine? Can I add it to articles like "Disputed Pokemon", "Dialga" or "Palkia"? I want to show how these two Pokemon were designed to look the same on color-neutral 2D statue.--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 17:41, 18 January 2023 (UTC)

I think it should be fine, personally, as long as it has a purpose. - Chosen (Talk) 23:44, 18 January 2023 (UTC)

Template update

Hey, can you update the template Template:Foot to mention BDSP? Thanks.--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 15:38, 28 February 2023 (UTC)

Alright, it should work now. - Chosen (Talk) 22:14, 28 February 2023 (UTC)
Hi again. Thanks for that and I would like to ask you to add gen2 and RSE to that template too, if you may? It would be also helpful if that template had subcategories for footprints from gen2, RSE, gen3-5 and BDSP.--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 19:56, 3 March 2023 (UTC)
Done. Do you plan on uploading footprints from any other games? - Chosen (Talk) 20:48, 3 March 2023 (UTC)
THANKS! These are the only games that have footprints as far as I know so there won't be any more of them, and that's why I would like to ask you for this last thing. On pages for gen 6+ Pokemon, the infoboxes ask for footprint files that don't exist, someone added redirects for a few to File:FUnknown.png, I think it would be better if the infobox just used "File:FUnknown.png" for Pokemon with ndex number #0650 (Chespin) or higher.--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 21:16, 3 March 2023 (UTC)
I believe that was done because redirects would be less intensive on page load than coding in one more prompt on an already intensive template. - Chosen (Talk) 21:40, 3 March 2023 (UTC)

To pile onto this Template:company should also mention SV, some logos are even used in both sv and swsh.4iamking (talk) 22:06, 20 March 2023 (UTC)

Done. Take a look. - Chosen (Talk) 01:56, 21 March 2023 (UTC)
