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.

Linking in summaries

Please use the {{bp}} template to link to Bulbapedia articles. Regular links link to pages in Archives (which does, of course, not have an article for SSBM or Photography). Thanks! UltimateSephiroth 16:43, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, I guess you knew this already after all. Just ignore this. :p UltimateSephiroth 16:45, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Anime pics

Anime pics have to be .png format, because it is a higher quality pic format. --Hmdwgf 20:47, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Done - Chosen of Mana - 03:31, 7 December 2009 (UTC)
Good job. One thing: there's a logo at the top right of the pic. But this is easy to miss because it is very small and transparent. Don't feel bad, there are many other pics with that same logo on this website. Please don't upload any pics with logos on them. Other than that, good job so far. --Hmdwgf 08:33, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Gold sprites

Shouldn't they be in 56 x 56 format? Just wondering, since File:Spr 2g 001.png is in that format. ht14 18:42, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

I suppose I should, seeing as TTE approved of it. That's gonna impede progress, however. - Chosen of Mana - 18:51, 1 January 2010 (UTC)
Hey, just stating the facts. So... yeah. ht14 18:54, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Regarding the trainer templates

Thanks so much for that, but don't forget to tell an admin to delete the template after using it. ht14 21:21, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

Requesting image

... of Max and his Ralts. It seems somewhat redundant on his page when there's two identical images of Max and Ralts... ht14 01:57, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply... is a PNG version of the current .jpg what you were asking for? - Chosen of Mana 15:40, 28 April 2010 (UTC)
Nope, never mind. Problem's solved. Thanks anyway. ht14 21:11, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

Another request, I hope you don't mind. Misty's Gyarados as a Magikarp. Apparently the article says it was shown, so... yeah. ht14 20:18, 2 May 2010 (UTC)


You're doing an awesome job, thank you so much! Would you mind working on the Gen V sprites first though? Thanks! Jellotalk 19:13, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

About categories

For BW, since everything is in Japanese and we'll be getting the English version in a couple of months anyway, I've told people to avoid creating them, because they'll end up being deleted anyway to make room for the English version. Thanks. Jellotalk 20:06, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Official congratulations

You've been here for a while but I thought I'd make this more official. Thanks for all the hard work you've done on the Archives. Welcome aboard the new team. I trust that you will continue to use your powers for good and help keep this place organized. There's always stuff to do on the Archives and we depend on people like you to keep things smooth! (I hope you'll be more active here now too). Jellotalk 09:32, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Small heads up.

Saw your userpage and what you tried to do, change it for this: #REDIRECT[[bp:User:Chosen]], and you'll have it redirected. Masatoshitalk 17:23, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your help! --- Chosen of Mana 17:30, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Piece of advice

When adding in the Location template for the images, it is not really necessary to do them on the jpgs or gifs as those can get replaced over time with a png. If you do see those, you can tag them with the jpg/gif template. Pattyman 20:05, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Not entirely true. Just because a file is not of the proper file format, does not mean it should be passed over for proper summary/category fixes. So, please, keep up with the proper location template work. But, yes, they should also get the fitting replacement tag so people who want to help out by doing needed jpg/gif replacements can also find that it is an image that needs such replacing. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 22:19, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Piece of advice #2

Please be a little more careful when modifying the summary and licensing of images, you have been replacing anime templates with game ones. Masatoshitalk 06:41, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Aw, man. I'm sorry I keep screwing up. I'm gonna take a break. - Chosen of Mana 20:00, 8 March 2012 (UTC)


Can you resize it? Didn't had time to do that. And the overworld sprite template is usable for more than two games? Since I'll guess the sprite is the same in Gold/Silver... Marked +-+-+ 19:44, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

The sprite was only two X-pixels off from that of Red OD II.png, so I just added on one on each side. The overworld template's third parameter can use any sort of text and link templates, so if you wanted to say Gold, Silver, and Crystal, you would just type {{bp|Pokémon Gold and Silver Versions|Gold, Silver}} and {{bp|Pokémon Crystal Version|Crystal}} - Chosen of Mana 20:00, 8 March 2012 (UTC)


Uh, who gave you approval for that template to be moved from the userspace & set into active use? - Kogoro - Talk to me - 14:04, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Ah, dammit. I didn't realize I stepped out of line. I had tested it and it was working, so I thought it would be OK. - Chosen of Mana 14:06, 17 April 2012 (UTC)
I actually was planning on making modifications to it today before giving it approval for use. We've had a few questions & ideas regarding the categorization of the Dare Da? and Pocket Monster TV images, which would have been great to address & get working before setting this template out live. So, for the moment, don't add the template to any more files. Since the modifications I'll be making in a few hours may break all the files you've already added this too ^^; And, yeah, wait for approval next time before setting a template out into live use and make sure to get opinions before making major modifications to how any current template works/displays. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 14:17, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

The MGM parody file

Both of those files were uploaded at the same time and neither of us knew that we had one before. Just letting you know. Pattyman 22:29, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

Need to talk

Please login to the forums and send me a PM. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 00:42, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

Shiny Custom Menu Sprites

Could you upload custom shiny sprites for events, please? The ones that are needed are Entei, Raikou, Suicune, Eevee, Pichu, Larvitar, Milotic, Volcarona, Golurk, Hydreigon, and Zigzagoon. Lady Ariel (talk) 17:40, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

I was told elsewhere that the shiny beasts weren't worth the trouble. But, I'd gladly do the rest, provided you show me where they would all be used. Keep in mind I do not have the tools to make aniPNG images. - Chosen of Mana 20:49, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
The article that would use them is List of notable ID numbers. Lady Ariel (talk) 20:57, 30 July 2012 (UTC)


As I told you about {{WTP}}, templates require approval before being used. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 05:06, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

****, I knew I was going to get in trouble... Still, I don't think the Portraits should go under the trainer sprites. - Chosen of Mana 05:12, 31 July 2012 (UTC)
I agree entirely about those portraits, actually. However, after what happened with {{WTP}} in April, you really should know that you need to get approval of the template before it is added to the Template namespace and put into active use. I've reviewed the template and it seems alright, so you can continue to add it to the relevant files. I expect you to properly seek template approval in the future. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 05:22, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

Upload problem

I ended up uploading an image that I thought I made animated but ended up having problems with it. I didn't mean to cause problems so I'm informing an Administrator. I apologize and if the image can be removed that would be appreciated. Ms. Who 22:22, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi, Ms. Who! Unfortunately, I'm not very good with animated images... maybe you should ask Marked +-+-+? He's done a lot of animated PNGs for Bulbapedia. - Chosen of Mana 23:08, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, I looked at his page and I managed to figure out how to get an animated .png file made. If the image has not been deleted yet I will replace it with the animated one. Ms. Who 00:06, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

Black/White 2 Item Sprite

Sorry I'm not quite familiar with wiki-like websites... I just upload those files... Bag Reveal Glass Sprite.png Bag Oval Charm Sprite.png Bag Grubby Hanky Sprite.png Bag Permit Sprite.png But not sure how to use them into our existing pages... For example, into this page: anping87 22:42, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, anping! There's usually some lag between uploading an image and when it becomes viewable on pages. Give it some time. — Chosen of Mana 02:23, 16 August 2012 (UTC)


You gotta check the forums more often...though I suppose I could have messaged you here instead of there. -- MAGNEDETH 16:42, 1 September 2012 (UTC)


Hi, thanks for your work on updating the template, but before making any changes, please make sure you discuss it with the rest of the staff first. We had decided to use PMDMIL for consistency with initials, and Pikachu and Oshawott as mascots. I've done all necessary changes and they're now fixed. Masatoshitalk 16:48, 9 December 2012 (UTC)

Change reporter and cameraman OD files

Hi there Chosen, can you please change the file name of Reporter OD.png and Cameraman OD.png to Reporter OD DP.png and Cameraman DP OD.png as I have already uploaded the images for Gabby and Ty's OD sprite. Thanks. Agent5514 (talk) 13:34, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Last I was told, the trainer OD sprites are given generational parameters (i.e. IV, DPPt) only if there is a more up-to-date version in a new generation. Since there is no Cameraman or Interviewer class in Generation IV, the files in question do not need to be updated.
For future reference, all Hoenn overworld sprites fitting the above description should be labeled "RSE", not "RS". - Chosen of Mana 11:45, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

You missed a file

Hi Chosen, of all the files you deleted, you forgot to delete Cameraman RSE OD.png. Thanks. Agent5514 (talk) 05:20, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

I messed up!

I'm not sure you're the right guy to talk to, but I uploaded some sprites of PokéBlocks a few minutes ago, but I forgot to put the licensing tag on a few of them. What do I do? Spongeabc5 (talk) 23:43, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

Don't worry. Just replace the current licencing template with "i-Fairuse-sprite-game". Easy, right? - Chosen of Mana 23:59, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
I don't know if I'm looking in the wrong place, but I can't see a licencing tag. I left the "Licensing" to "None Selected" when I uploaded it. Spongeabc5 (talk) 00:17, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
Ah, I get it now. In that case, you'll need to put in the information manually. I took care your mistakes. Please be more careful in the future. - Chosen of Mana 01:48, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Color correction on sugi art

Hey. I noticed the current art for tentacruel and gengar had modified colors, so I edited them to appear as they do in official products. That is, as the art appears in guidebooks and such. Tentacreul had a slight purple tint over it, so I just removed that, and for gengar, it was edited to appear as he does in the games, so I undid that.

The issue is, I can't update those files, it won't let me. If you could do it for me, that would be great.

It's worth noting that tentacruel is still a tiny bit off, but it's as good as I can get it for now, and it's much closer to the actual art's colors than it was.

Tentacruel: [1] Gengar: [2] Jabberwockxeno (talk) 13:28, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

Just noticed tentacool was slightly purple, too. Fixed that as well. Link to file: [3] Jabberwockxeno (talk) 13:34, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
Actually, it seems a LOT of the current versions of the sugi art are slightly off color wise. I don't have the time to do them all, but you guys may want to compare it to guidebooks and such. I'll continue to post more corrected ones here, as I do them.
Bulbasaur: [4] Jabberwockxeno (talk)

Hello, Jabberwockxeno. As you might have noticed, the memebers of the Archives are always editing and re-editing Sugimori Pokémon artwork to get them as close to the genuine article as possible. Since this is a wiki, every user can upload a new version of almost any picture on the site. If you feel like the color corrected artworks you've made are better than the ones we currently have, please feel free to upload them, provided their dimensions are identical (i.e. 252 x 252, 785 x 785). I'll make sure then other Archives admins see this, but please note that we are always looking for ways to improve the quality of the artwork we have on Bulbapedia. - Chosen of Mana 14:49, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

The thing is, it won't let me update those images. It says it cannot be overwritten. The dimensions are all identical, with the exception of bulbasaur's, which I found a higher resolution version of and I worked off of that. Jabberwockxeno (talk) 14:56, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
I believe a restriction was recently put in place to prevent new users from uploading until a week has passed due to a rash of spam uploaders. I don't think there's much I can do about that. - Chosen of Mana 15:16, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
As in, a week has to pass for each file update, or the user must be older than a week? Because i've been a user for longer than a week, and the message is still there even if the last update was more than a week ago Jabberwockxeno (talk) 15:20, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
OK that's certainly weird. I think you'd be better suited asking one of the admins higher in rank than me. They know more about the mechanics of the wiki itself. - Chosen of Mana 15:35, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
Well, I've contacted a few, and no replies yet. So we'll see. Jabberwockxeno (talk) 21:03, 21 September 2013 (UTC)


This user has a history of being blocked on other NIWA wikis (see here for a sampler) for problematic edits to images, including erroneous recoloring and screenshots of games with inaccurate appearance due to emulator settings. I encourage you to carefully keep an eye on him since he seems to be doing the same kind of thing again here. Miles (talk) 03:36, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

I understand. I'll pass this on to the other members of the staff. - Chosen of Mana 17:43, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Obvious cheats in screenshots?

Brandondorf9999‎ is uploading screenshots for the Pokemon Stadium games that are very obviously using cheats, with some examples (such as Rapidash using Poison Sting) being more egregious than others (all the screenshots that show Pokemon with 999 HP). I'm not sure if this is, necessarily, unacceptable or not, but I do believe it should be (certainly for the things like Rapidash). It might be nice if a staff member commented on the current discussion. Tiddlywinks (talk) 19:17, 7 March 2014 (UTC)


My mistake. Can you delete the picture please and sorry once again. I didn't know. Thanks, Dbeckelheimer6 (talk) 01:48, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

I've taken care of it. In the future, make sure to read the rules and Manual of style. Keep an eye on the Council messages on the front page, too! - Chosen of Mana 01:54, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

location template question

Hey there, I noticed that you added "region = Unova" to some location templates on the summaries of my uploaded maps. Not sure why it's needed, as the image is automatically added to the Unova maps category on account of the game being B2W2. Seems like unnecessary text to me. Jdthebud (talk) 08:38, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

The Gym version of the location templates will not fill in the region colors behind the badge images unless the "region" parameter is inputted. Without it, the template looks broken. - Chosen of Mana 15:05, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
I see, I will keep that in mind then. Thanks. Jdthebud (talk) 17:56, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Image help

Could you help me upload a picture for Ash and Pikachu in Kalos and put it for Ash's Pikachu biography page. I tried to do it but I'm having trouble.-- JasonL (talk)

I would love to help, but first, could you show me what you want to upload and tell me what errors you are receiving? - Chosen of Mana 04:03, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
This one. and the error says didn't go through. -- JasonL (talk) 23:56, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
What's the file name you're using? - Chosen of Mana 00:10, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
Both of them in Kalos-- JasonL (talk) 00:23, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
So you're trying to make a new file altogether? Try uploading the file again. This time, I want you to copy and paste the error message that appears.
While I'm at it, I should mention that .png format files are preferred for anime screen caps, due to their lower filesize. - Chosen of Mana 00:35, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Still didn't work.-- JasonL (talk) 01:06, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Can you copy, word for word, what you wanted to name the file, and the error message that appeared? - Chosen of Mana 02:19, 25 June 2014 (UTC) It says can't be uploaded. -- JasonL (talk) 16:14, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

I mean what are you typing in as the filename. Is it "Ash and Pikachu in Kalos.jpg" or something? When you get the error, I want you to highlight the text, right click it, select "Copy", come here, start your reply, right-click, and click "Paste". - Chosen of Mana 16:20, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

I did that but no dice. -- JasonL (talk) 10:46, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

That's strange. I'm afraid I don't have any other ideas. Maybe you should try asking one of the higher-ups? - Chosen of Mana 16:31, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

I'll try something else -- JasonL (talk) 04:10, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Sprite request

I have no rush for this, but can you upload the overworld sprite of Serena, the girl in the Battle Hall that is found in PtHGSS? The sprite can also be found in the Goldenrod Radio Tower (1F) if that helps. Thanks in advance! ht14 01:53, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Fusion moves

[5] (regular Bolt and powered Fusion), [6] (powered Bolt) and [7] (regular Fusion). At that angle, Fusion Bolt will have no difference, since it "waits" for a while in clouds instead of dropping down instantly; Fusion Flare does, as there is a pillar of flame. Eridanus (talk) 16:51, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Editing Help

I need to edit something but it's locked. How do you become an Admin I want to be one too so I can help you if you have problems.--JasonL (talk) 00:53, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

I'm afraid the people chosen have already been decided. Even if we were accepting more, I don't think I'm the person you want to talk to.
That being said, we'll be happy to take any requests over on the Edit Requests thread. - Chosen of Mana 01:04, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

Perfect Picture--JasonL (talk) 01:04, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Mega sprites

I'm wondering if you just resized File:018MMS.png and File:015MMS.png or if you actually uploaded them from an approved source? I'm waiting impatiently for permission to mine some XY/ORAS resources, and if you have an already approved (and public) source, I'd love to check it out myself and see if anything else can be uploaded. Tiddlywinks (talk) 03:32, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

The sprites are just resised versions on the ones AwesomeDJPokemon posted. Since the user has successfully uploaded ORAS key item sprites without infraction, I assumed them to be genuine.
If you can provide me proof your source has been approved, I'd be happy to give you the go-ahead. - Chosen of Mana
I've been waiting on staff approval in a couple places, it just seems (frustratingly) that I've managed relatively bad timing...
If you mean approved by the source's "owners", I just PM'd Kaphotics/SciresM on ProjectPokemon, so I can only offer hearsay as to their replies, and I expect(?) staff would prefer to confirm that directly. If not, I can certainly reproduce the conversations. Tiddlywinks (talk) 05:50, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

PSS icons

Dude, you're awesome, but some PSS icons are the same thing like the sprites in XY, can you change the name because first appear in XY, also keep going for that, also can you bring the 3D models in 400x192 of May, Brendan, Wally, Maxie, Archie, Steven and Zinnia? --HoopsterJohn (talk) 19:08, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

I can boot up my Pokémon X later to compare the concerning icons, but I got the ORAS icons straight from the Global Link. I'm afraid I am unable to get those 3D VS. models. - Chosen of Mana 19:18, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
I checked, but I couldn't find the icons for Hiker, Swimmer, and Hex Maniac in XY. - Chosen of Mana 21:05, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
Quick question Chosen! I currently don't have access to ORAS right now, but I was wondering, can the icons for the Elite Four, Maxie, Wally, Steven, or Archie be used for the PSS? If not, it begs the question how Trainers were able to use those icons for the Rating Battles. ht14 01:22, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
That's news to me. As far as I know, Wally and the others aren't usable icons for trainers; they only appear as icons in the Multi Battle Partner menu at the Battle Maison. - Chosen of Mana 02:54, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
Hmm... that's really odd indeed. There most likely is some sort of trigger, otherwise they're glitches on the Global Link. Most likely the latter, as that's how I found Siebold's icon, in the ORAS battle league no less. ht14 03:43, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Rayquaza ORAS image

Can you explain to me why the ORAS artwork of Rayquaza hasn't been uploaded over the current one? Ellis99 (talk) 10:49, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

That decision was not made by me. If I'd have to guess, it's probably because official sources still use the original art on a regular basis over the new art. The same case happened in Emerald. I would suggest taking the issue to a higher up. - Chosen of Mana 14:35, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Okay, I will. Ellis99 (talk) 11:56, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Decision making

Please don't make decisions on my behalf. Thanks, - Kogoro - Talk to me - 22:23, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

ゥ$ 6ゥ Pictures

I've noticed the pictures for the glitch pokemon ゥ$ 6ゥ are very blurry and colorless, and I have taken some better screenshots of its sprites. However, i'm not autoconfirmed so I can't upload them as separate images, and I obviously can't replace the ones that are already there. What i'm asking is, may I have permission to upload over File:RBGlitch135.png, File:RBGlitchDexFD.png, and File:RBGlitch135 b.png? - - unsigned comment from Cela08 (talkcontribs)

I'm afraid I can't do much to alleviate your autoconfirmation situation. May I suggest uploading the sprites to a separate client, sharing it with me or someone else, such as the original uploader, and asking them to upload them? - Chosen of Mana 19:42, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
Oh, the images are here: [8] The first is a backsprite, the second is the frontsprite, and the third is obviously the Pokedex entry. I'm not exactly sure what you mean by a separate client, though. I'm still pretty new here (even though my account is old). Cela08 (talk) 20:05, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
Very good. I will upload the sprites myself. Keep up the good work! - Chosen of Mana 20:09, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

Upload over a redirect

Hey Chosen, I have a question. So, there are some B2W2 sprites that are different from their BW counterparts and currently exist as a redirect pointing to the BW sprite. An example of this would be the Unova starters and all of their evolutions. My question is how do you upload an image over a redirect? My guess is delete the redirect code from the page and it would allow a file to be uploaded, but I don't want to try that and mess something up. Adamws (talk) 07:23, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

The upload tool should allow for writing over a redirect. Failing that, one of us, the administrators, would have to delete the redirects themselves. If you can give me a full list of redirects to be replaced, I or someone else can free up the space needed. - Chosen of Mana 14:55, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
I tried to use the upload tool and it wouldn't let me upload over the redirect. The redirects that need to be deleted (from the Gen V Pokemon) are Spr_5b2_496, Spr_5b2_497, Spr_5b2_498, Spr_5b2_499, Spr_5b2_500, Spr_5b2_502, and Spr_5b2_503. I'll let you know if there are others as I work with the other generations. Thanks! Adamws (talk) 18:40, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
Done! - Chosen of Mana 20:26, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Generation I official artwork

User:Pokeant/Artwork Sandbox
Category talk:Ken Sugimori Pokémon artwork (RGB artwork heading)

Hello, could you have a look at these pages please? A number of us think that most of the Gen I Sugimori artwork could do with having their filenames changed to improve accuracy and prevent confusion. Would you be able to change them?

I asked a junior admin to help but they said they didn't have the rights because it would involve deleting some of the files. --Purpleflamecyndaquil (talk) 22:18, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Mt Blaze error

Can you take care of the image pages of File:Mt Blaze PMD.png and File:Mt Blaze.png? An error occurred while moving the former to the latter. Pattyman (talk) 22:17, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

I keep getting database errors while trying to delete the former page. I posted the error on the forums. The other file should work fine, now. - Chosen of Mana 00:47, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

Overwrite Images Permissions

I'd like to be able to clean up some of the Gen 6 images that Bulbapedia has marked as needing cleanup. Such as this one (replacing it with this image)

I've never uploaded to Bulbapedia before, so I don't know how this works. The upload page simply won't let me simply replace it, and create a new history state on it, and it said to come to an admin to do it. --Tustin2121 (talk) 03:40, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

It's likely you can't upload because you are not yet autoconfirmed. Could I ask where you got this from? Did you make it yourself? - Chosen of Mana 04:02, 21 December 2015 (UTC)
The image I linked on imgur is the image from bulbapedia, taken into Photoshop and cleaned up with some clone tools. Yes, I cleaned it up, but I didn't create the original image.

I have a few pictures of Hoopa using Hyperspace Fury in the anime from the eighteenth movie. Is there any way by which this can be sent to you (your Bulbagarden forums page, if any, for example) so that you or someone else can upload it, since, apparently, I cannot upload pictures by myself on Bulbagarden Archives due to being new here. Or, by any chance, is it possible for me to put it on this talk page? Also would like to inform that the pictures shall have a Teletoon logo (to call it) at the bottom right corner, so would request you to keep that in mind while replying.Harryghost (talk) 13:26, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

I can receive it via private message on the fourms. Depending on how big or small the logo is, I can upload it as a placeholder until someone gets a DVD/BD screencap of the movie. Similar things were done for the previous movie. - Chosen of Mana 18:30, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

Well, in that case, I would like to know your username on the forums so that the pictures may be sent to you. Harryghost (talk) 13:19, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

On the fourms, I go by Chosen of Mana. I'll be awaiting your response. - Chosen of Mana 17:05, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

I tried inserting and sending the pictures through starting a new Conversation but every time I insert a picture, an image icon with a cross on it (depicting no or bad picture, I suppose) appears instead of the original picture. I suppose it due to being these being saved in my computer and being uploaded from there. Can you please suggest a solution? Harryghost (talk) 12:23, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

I suppose you could try uploading it to an image hosting service such as imgur and posting the links in the conversation. - Chosen of Mana 12:26, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

I have created a conversation titled 'Hyperspace Fury' which have images with their description below them. Hope these will be helpful. Harryghost (talk) 16:32, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

I have received your images and will put them under consideration. Thank you for your input! - Chosen of Mana 16:53, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Legendary Pokémon

I have added pictures of the various legendary Pokémon summoned by Hoopa in the eighteenth movie in the same conversation 'Hyperspace Fury', in order of their appearance in the movie, with special emphasis on the two distinct Groudon and Kyogre incorrectly labelled by Bulbapedia as one. I would request you to upload these images as well, as per your convenience. Harryghost (talk) 19:44, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for your help so far. I managed to find a user with access to HD screencaps, but your work is still appreciated. I will keep the files on hand until everything's taken care of. - Chosen of Mana 00:50, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

Never mind! I am here to provide my services to Bulbapedia so that it becomes a great Pokémon wiki on the web. Apart from that, I would also appreciate that until the above mentioned user brings in the HD screencaps of each Pokémon summoned by the Hoopa, the pictures sent by me be used as a replacement, so that the page does not look incomplete. Harryghost (talk) 09:59, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

M18 Pokémon with alternate forms

I was wondering if it's necessary to upload a picture for every form difference. Specifically, I have already uploaded Latias, Latios and Mega Rayquaza pictures. But are Mega Latios, Mega Latias, "normal" Rayquaza and all 3 Kyurem forms also needed? Thanks in advance! --Aqwertyuiop28 (talk) 20:18, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

Because InactivePoké doesn't support multiple pictures, I don't think Mega Latios, Latias, and Black/White Kyurem are neccessary, but because Rayquaza is included in the List of alternately colored Pokemon in the anime, which uses TrainerPoké, pictures of both forms would be appreciated. - Chosen of Mana 21:24, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
Sorry to interrupt but while the pictures of Latias and Latios in their Mega forms won't be necessary for Hoopa's page, they can still go onto their species page as the images we have now are from the ORAS trailer and it would be better to have images containing them in the actual anime than from a trailer. Pattyman (talk) 05:19, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Remaining Pokémon

I would request you that until Aqwertyuiop28 manages to upload images of each Legendary Pokémon for Hoopa's page in the HD screencaps, you upload the pictures sent by me on the Archives so that they can be used as a replacement, so that Hoopa's page does not look incomplete. Harryghost (talk) 18:37, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

I would be happy to comply, but I deleted the files a while ago, and the fourms are down for the moment. I'll attend to it as soon as I can. - Chosen of Mana 19:11, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Renaming PokeTv images

Instead of naming the images of PokeTV like they are done now, wouldnt it be better if they were named with a more consistent system? Currently, the images are named according to the following system: For the program title card, PokeTV <program> Program.png; For featuring, PokeTV <featured thing>.png; For extra scenes, PokeTV extra scene<number>.png. They could be named systematically, as PokeTV Program <program name>.png for the program title card; PokeTV <epicode>.png for the featured thing; and PokeTV extra scene <epicode>.png for the extra scene. This system of naming the images will be better in my opinion, as they can be found according to the episode code, not according to the featured thing. New files would follow this naming system while existing files would have to be renamed. What are your thoughts??? signed comment from PikaTepig999 11:39, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Hey, I was trying to upload a new version of the image for the Survival Area in Platinum, because the one we had here had a low resolution.

I'm not sure what I may have done wrong or how I should try to fix it (maybe just try again, but I didn't want to keep uploading and possibly failing). Can you help me with that? Suic12- (talk) 15:07, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

It might take a bit to refresh the cache. Try pressing Alt+F5 or this link. Otherwise, your will just have to wait for the cache to refresh itself. - Chosen (Talk) 15:19, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

New Images

Do you have some new LPGE sprites and about uploading Hau's Decidueye. Also in the 3D notable trainers, why do we use Pokémon artwork instead of sprites while we use sprites in the specific 2D game? - - unsigned comment from PokéSean (talkcontribs)

  1. The upload of Hau's Decidueye should wait until the actual episode airs, as is standard practice with anime events.
  2. The LGPE sprites are currently being discussed with staff; it was decided we would wait to see if Sword and Shield continues the use of these updated sprites, and it appears they will. That being said, not every sprite will be updated, but all sprites will likely need to change to a new standard size, given that Melmeltan's sprite is 52x52 as opposed to the previous standard, 40x40. If HOME, in particular, uses the same style of sprites, we may need to wait until HOME releases to update existing sprites.
  3. In List of game characters, we generally use artwork for characters introduced from X and Y and beyond due to the general lack of available 3D models we had at the time. Indeed, we're still missing overworld models for a large majority of nominal Generation VI characters.

I hope these answers you questions - Chosen (Talk) 13:07, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

More requests

1) The Alola League Top 16 picture has a typo in the title. Could you fix it?
2) Could you upload a bigger version of this as a new version of the Manalo Stadium image?
Thank you on advance. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:23, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

1) The title of the first image was intentional; As I mentioned on Talk:Pokémon League Conference, the term "Manalo Conference" has not been used at all to describe the Alola Leauge, and in fact, the term "Conference" hasn't been used since the Silver Conference. The intent here is to futureproof the article in case of change.
2) Done. - Chosen (Talk) 13:42, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
That's not what I meant. I meant that the word "League" is misspelled in the title. Just like it is in your above post. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 04:23, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

It is the the second one. Some artwork isn't there, it's blank. - Gdnam32 (talkcontribs)

I'm sorry for being impatient but do you have the time to fix the photos in Pokémon Dream World artwork? - Gdnam32 (talkcontribs)

For future reference, I only have Sun and Moon series episodes as far back as SM091, and will likely be "removing" them after the new series starts. As for SM130, I don't think such a version has been made avaible online, legitmiately or otherwise. - Chosen (Talk) 17:58, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

I've been holding on to that one in case the dub closed captions support it. - Chosen (Talk) 15:28, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
I personally strongly doubt that, because 1) Lana just told Primarina to sing, not use the move Sing, and 2) the move Sing puts its target to sleep, and that song clearly didn't put anyone around asleep. But if you want to check the subtitles first, go ahead. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:55, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

(resetting indent)After reviewing the subtitles, I have decided against it and deleted it. - Chosen (Talk) 17:46, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

Good to hear. Thank you. Next, I'd like to request for you to add the new "Anthony Gym.png" I just uploaded to the protected-for-now "Gym" article on Bulbapedia, specifically to the section with the unofficial anime Gyms, perhaps also reordering the pictures and the listed Gyms to be in either chornological or alphabetical order, since right now, they're a bit all over the place. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:41, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for fulfilling my request. However, I have one minor thing about your edit that I'd like to point out. This may be a nitpick, but on every other unofficial Gym picture the text reads "X Gym", while with the Kantonian Gym, the format is "The X Gym in the anime". Can I ask you to make this more consistent? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:45, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
I wrote it like that because the Kantonian Gym is the only unoffical Gym from the games to appear in the anime, with the Fighting Dojo's appearance making no mention of its former capacity as Gym in the games. - Chosen (Talk) 15:56, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
I understand. Could you next move "Ash Winning.png" to "Ash winning.png"? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:03, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
Or... maybe not. Not sure. You decide whether it's necessary or not. There are a couple more League victory pictures that also have the word "winning" written with a big "W". Should they all be consistent? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:05, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
I just accidentally uploaded "Dragonite Thunderbolt.png" instead of updating "Drake Dragonite Thunderbolt.png" (which I did afterwards). Could you delete this unnecessary image? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 13:41, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
I recently figured out that "Apriblender anime.png" actually contains more items than just Apriblenders, so I put it to use on other item pages as well. However, that also means that the title isn't actually that accurate, since it's about more than just Apriblenders. Do you think it should be moved under a title that describes the picture better? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:57, 28 September 2019 (UTC)

You've previously uploaded some VS models from Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Did you get them yourself or did you receive them from someone else? Either way, can I request that you upload the USUM VS models of Professor Kukui and Gladion with Z-Power Rings? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:50, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

The ones I uploaded were part of a sprite sheet. Because the VS models of Kukui and Glafdion are fully-animated 3D models, they weren't included. - Chosen (Talk) 20:20, 22 October 2019 (UTC)
I see. I hope someone could upload those two. They shouldn't be overly hard to find in the game. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:44, 22 October 2019 (UTC)
A post from the Pokemon Adventures illustrator has confirmed that the first Genesect ever seen in the manga was actually not the same one which Blake caught later, but actually a Shiny one belonging to Colress that's seen in the latest chapter. Hence, could you move "Blake Genesect Techno Blast Ice Adventures.png" to "Colress Genesect Techno Blast Ice Adventures.png", please? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:53, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
Watchermark uploaded a new version of SM145.png, which, I must agree, looks better than the version I had previously uploaded. However, the image is smaller than it should be, and I can't access my laptop right now, so could you please upgrade the image to a bigger size?
Also, in case you know how to upload Pokémon Adventures pictures, yesterday I noticed that in "Hano Grand Resort Adventures.png", which I uploaded yesterday, I accidentally left the cursor within the screenshot while taking it, so can you fix that? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:23, 28 October 2019 (UTC)
Jīkyō has just received a dub name. Could you move his picture to match it? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:05, 9 November 2019 (UTC)

Galar Starters Images

Request for GrookeyGalarCollection, ScorbunnyGalarCollection and SobbleGalarCollection images, the GalarCollection(Card#) be changed to SwordShield(Card#) Thanks. Ruixiang95 (talk) 17:05, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

New Requests

Decided it might be easier to start a new topic than continue using the other one, could you change File:Wakana Kingyo.jpg to File:Wakana Minami.jpg please--BigDocFan (talk) 17:00, 21 September 2019 (UTC)


Gotcha, boss!--Darknesslover5000 (talk) 18:00, 22 September 2019 (UTC)


Would you like to delete this file? Thanks. - - unsigned comment from Akurochan (talkcontribs)

Done - Chosen (Talk) 23:46, 30 October 2019 (UTC)


Hope all is well Chosen, its good to back uploading images and editing Bulbapedia again. Any chance you can upload an anime image of Kikuna?--BigDocFan (talk) 14:41, 7 December 2019 (UTC)

Done! - Chosen (Talk) 14:47, 7 December 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, sadly the sub free titles aren't uploaded now as they're region locked so my only video source come with subs--BigDocFan (talk) 14:59, 7 December 2019 (UTC)

Worker Machop

Was wondering if you could upload a sub free image of this [9] as I think it shops Machop under the ownership of a Worker in the anime--BigDocFan (talk) 16:39, 9 December 2019 (UTC)

Just noticed the link wasn't working, (talk) 16:41, 9 December 2019 (UTC)

Hop VS models

I'm kind of confused. I can understand you moving Hop's VS models around, but why did you delete the one without a Dynamax Band? Also, your summary edits were a bit off, so I fixed them. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:36, 14 December 2019 (UTC)

Never mind. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:40, 14 December 2019 (UTC)

Template edit requests

Should the *Location" template be edited to support "Galar" as the region? Also, shouldn't the TM sprites on the "mv" and "mva" templates be changed to match the sprites used since Generation VI? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:24, 15 December 2019 (UTC)

  1. Galar is supported for game locations in Sword and Shield. For New series anime locations, use "New", since the template's usage for anime goes by series and the new series doesn't exclusively take place in Galar.
  2. The TM sprites still use the regular sprites because there is no Bag TM Fairy VI Sprite. - Chosen (Talk) 00:26, 16 December 2019 (UTC)
  1. I knew of the "New" thing, I just figured that every region should have their own. But even if we use *New" for the anime, what about the manga?
  2. Ah. I see. Could there be a file redirect that redirects "Bag TM Fairy VI" to "Bag TM Fairy"? Would that work? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:41, 16 December 2019 (UTC)

Square images

I really appreciate you making the official Sword and Shield art pieces into perfect squares. However, in case you missed it, Dubwool's image still needs the same treatment. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 23:23, 19 December 2019 (UTC)

Oh, and I forgot: Boltund is another "patient" is need of treatment. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 05:18, 20 December 2019 (UTC)
And let's add the Dreepy line's images to the list as well. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:15, 20 December 2019 (UTC)

Type Symbols

Hey, I'm not really an expert in in-game images but I've came up with an idea that type pages could use fresher symbols. Would it be possible if you could add type symbols from SwSh? I've also found that some images from older generations are missing here [10]. If you can't do that that's perfectly fine.--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 19:09, 23 December 2019 (UTC)


Me and FinnishPokéFan92 have been having trouble with ShallowShaddoll, he's been uploading images from today's episode that are either the wrong size and without any summaries. I've corrected them as best I can and informed him about it but he's continued to do it. Can you or any other admin have a word please?--BigDocFan (talk) 17:59, 29 December 2019 (UTC)


Could you upload an image featuring the Linoone, Metagross, Altaria and Seviper who took part in the Flute Tournament Cup please?--BigDocFan (talk) 21:45, 29 December 2019 (UTC)

Went to upload a new version of Ash Pikachu but I can't overwrite the file. Would you mind doing it for me, got it down to 1280x720. (talk) 22:41, 29 December 2019 (UTC)
I actually had a very similar image in mind, myself. I'll upload it now. - Chosen (Talk) 04:56, 30 December 2019 (UTC)
Could you change Ice Flow Race Finneon.png‎‎, Ice Flow Race Horsea.png‎‎, Ice Flow Race track.png‎‎ and Ice Flow Race setting.png‎, replacing the Ice Flow Race with Pokémon Drift Ice Race please--BigDocFan (talk) 22:37, 12 January 2020 (UTC)
One thing we're lacking that I'm unable to provide is an image for SS009. Could you upload one --BigDocFan (talk) 19:25, 13 January 2020 (UTC)
Me again, would happily do it myself if I could but as I can't, can you change, Pokémon Drift Ice Race Empoleon Dewgong.png to Pokémon Drift Ice Race Dewgong.png please--BigDocFan (talk) 17:34, 14 January 2020 (UTC)

Hi, can you upload this logo for the new Pokemon Medallion Battle game? [11] Suzuteo (talk) 05:17, 31 December 2019 (UTC)

Done! - Chosen (Talk) 14:31, 31 December 2019 (UTC)

I want confirmed status

Hi, I want to be a confirmed user, I don't want to edit 10 other files for autoconfirmed, and I just want to make a minor edit to Pokémon world in relation to the real world, thanks. - BTCGBP2004 (Talk) 13:21, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

Pokemon Medallion Tier Symbols

In Pokemon Medallion, the Pokemon are grouped into tiers represented by Poké/Great/Ultra Balls.

Can you upload these images so I can make templates out of them? They will be like how the TCG Energy template works. That or I can just use them ion my table directly.

Someone else took care of this item. Thanks! Suzuteo (talk) 07:20, 5 January 2020 (UTC)

Deletion request

Could you please delete the redundant "Delia Mimey Barrier.png", since we now have the better-sized and more consistently titled "Mimey Barrier.png"? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 22:41, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

Another kind of request(s)

TehPerson accidentally uploaded "VSPokémon Breeder M SwSh.png" as "VS Pokémon Breeder M SwSh.png". Could you move it to be consistent with the other VS models? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:11, 5 January 2020 (UTC)

I've been wondering: should the anime images of the Viridian Gym swap places? I think the "Viridian Gym anime.png" and "Viridian Gym battlefield anime.png" should feature the Gym's more recent outlook, while images of the older outlook should have either "EP063" or "debut" in their titles. Could you help with this? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:37, 14 January 2020 (UTC)
In addition, could you upload move images from the first episode of Twilight Wings? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:04, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for uploading the move images. But what about moving the Viridian Gym images? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:09, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
I don't see a need to change the Viridian Gym images unless they are pulled up by an automated template. The Gym template gives full control over what image goes in it, however. - Chosen (Talk) 16:06, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
I guess I was overly keen on purely aesthetic stuff. Sorry to have bothered you with this. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:40, 17 January 2020 (UTC)


I'm a bit concerned about Mjhenry19 and his recent uploads including evolution images that have no page for them at present and reverting some images to former ones. I feel the ones that were in store are better but want to avoid causing an edit war/argument so thought I would run it past you.--BigDocFan (talk) 13:34, 6 January 2020 (UTC)

I took care of the reverts, and will ask them what their plans are for the Evolution images. If I recall, you had your own set of Evolution images you were complining on you User: space on Bulbapedia proper. - Chosen (Talk) 15:37, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
Guess I'm not one to talk about uploading images for userpage articles but I've learnt my lesson and stopped that--BigDocFan (talk) 16:22, 6 January 2020 (UTC)

Models from Pokémon Masters

Hello there, I was wondering if we could use screenshots from the Sync Pair viewer feature for those images, since some of the characters we have now have their feet out of frame. I'm hesitating though, because I'm not sure if the quality would be good enough (here's an example for Olivia taken by me, I don't know if the resolution would be better on a different phone). There's also two "generic" poses for each Trainer and I'm not sure if we would have to stick with a consistent one for all the Trainers or chose either pose on a case by case basis.

My other question is if it's necessary for all the pictures to have the exact same dimensions. We could crop some, because some characters are looking pretty small in their sprite table from their Bulbapedia article right now. --Gabo 2oo (talk) 01:02, 8 January 2020 (UTC)
