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

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

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

Uploading format

Please upload images in .png format, not .PNG. Thank you! ht14 02:59, 22 November 2012 (UTC)

And you please name the sections of talk page comments. Thank you! Mikoro (talk) 02:45, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
Careless of me... thank you for reminding me. For some reason, I did not put up a header. ht14 03:01, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
You're welcome, and I will remember to load files in "png" and not "PNG". And by the way, how come you are on hiatus? MIKORO (talk to me) 03:04, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
I am planning to be on leave... I generally am limiting myself from editing. ht14 03:06, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
Oh, that's a bummer. Are you, or should I say WERE you an administrator? MIKORO (talk to me) 03:07, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
I am still currently an admin here. Is there any way I could contact you besides here? The talkpage is meant for discussing Archives-related material. ht14 03:08, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
You can email me. MIKORO (talk to me) 03:53, 23 November 2012 (UTC)


The image you uploaded is exceptionally blurry, and appears to be a blown-up version of a much smaller image. If someone reverts your upload, you should not restore your upload if they don't happen to respond as quickly as you want them to. Starting an upload war on the Archives is just as unacceptable as starting an edit war on Bulbapedia. Additionally, it's highly advised that you keep discussions related to the Archives on the Archives. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 20:20, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

Alright, I understand. It's just that I don't know where people get HD pictures from before the episodes they appear in air in the U.S. Do you know? I am Mikoro (wanna talk?) 03:25, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Ash's Charizard side images

Those two images that you uploaded newer versions of, I wanted to say that you did a good job with them as their quality is very good and not blurry. Pattyman (talk) 15:28, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, Pattyman! I finally figured out how to get HD images. And by the way, I have a satisfactory image to upload for Ash's Charizard. Do you have the right to unlock it? I am Mikoro (wanna talk?) 18:33, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
I don't have the right to unlock the page. However, I am glad to hear that you were able to get an image for Ash's Charizard. Pattyman (talk) 23:19, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Logos and matting

Try not to upload any pics with any kind of logo on it. I've been noticing that most of the photos you have uploaded recently are of spec-quality and are good, but nearly all of them have logos and a few also have visible matting (i.e. black bars) as well. Use whatever photo-editing software you might have and clean the pics up if they have any kind of visible obstruction on them. That kind of work is appreciated. --Hmdwgf (talk) 23:57, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Okay. Do you have any suggestions for image cleaning software? I am Mikoro (wanna talk?) 17:51, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
Photoshop. There's nothing better, in my opinion. For removing logos, all you have to do is use the lasso tool, create a complete shape around the logo and press delete. You can do many other things; and you can download the software for free for Windows or Mac. --Hmdwgf (talk) 19:32, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
