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!

Image quality

Hi, I just wondered, are you finding the Sugimori artwork in the higher resolution or are you just making them larger yourself? Because some of the artwork seems a bit blurry. --S2daam (talk) 09:33, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

I found most of the artwork on so they are larger, and I did notice some of them are a bit blurry. As for the 431x431 artwork, they're from the official Pokémon website. Moonboy65 (talk) 21:41, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
I had to use Photoshop to make the artwork 1280x1280, the original artwork is much larger than that. Moonboy65 (talk) 21:49, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
You're awesome great for the 3D model of Wally, can you soon make the May, Brendan, Archie, Maxie, Steven and Zinnia ones, please? --HoopsterJohn (talk) 21:25, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi there, I've got some bad news — using images from other fansites such as PidgiWiki is not allowed on Bulbagarden Archives. The ones from the official Pokémon web site are fine, but the others will have to be reverted. Thanks for your understanding. --ZestyCactus 04:49, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Actually, all of the images I got from PidgiWiki were submitted by the Pokémon Company/Nintendo. So technically, PidgiWiki is like a image site for Nintendo. - unsigned comment from Moonboy65 (talkcontribs)
Unfortunately, while I want to give you the benefit of the doubt, we still are not allowed to upload images from other fansites, especially without permission. If you have any additional issues, do let us know. For now, I will be reverting the images that have been taken from PidgiWiki. ht14 23:39, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
Oh yeah, the 1280x1280 Kalos artworks i uploaded were from this site, so why revert them? Also, i asked permission to upload the images but I didn't think i would need permission to upload them from PidgiWiki lol. Moonboy65 (talk) 00:10, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
I see... I just want to clarify: the Kalos artworks and the 431x431 images are the ones from the official website, correct? ht14 02:44, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
Yes, that is correct. Moonboy65 (talk) 02:47, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
So, what do we do with the reverted artwork, leave them or revert them? Moonboy65 (talk) 01:58, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
I guess, i'll just revert the artworks? Moonboy65 (talk) 22:15, 15 April 2015 (UTC)
Sorry about the delayed response, but yeah, if you don't mind. Thanks! ht14 03:49, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
That's ok, i wont mind reverting them lol. Moonboy65 (talk) 22:40, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

Pokémon Origins Images

Should all of the Images from be at 1280x720? - unsigned comment from Moonboy65 (talkcontribs)

Yep, except for the artwork. Also, you can't resign unsigned comments as they give off the wrong timestamp. Pattyman (talk) 02:52, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
I see... Moonboy65 (talk) 02:53, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
I won't have to go ahead and place a bad image tag the images since you'll be taking care of them and it would be an extra step of removing the tag. Pattyman (talk) 02:57, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm working on the episode 2 pics atm. Moonboy65 (talk) 02:59, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
Ok. Pattyman (talk) 03:00, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
I might do the rest once I'm done. Moonboy65 (talk) 03:01, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
I need someone to rename the Mew Origins image to Mew PO, thanks Moonboy65 (talk) 21:04, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Forgotten signatures

It is against policy for users to resign comments they forgot to sign when they first saved them. Please stop changing the unsigned templates on this page. Thank you. Tiddlywinks (talk) 11:23, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

OK. Moonboy65 (talk) 17:21, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Internal Error

Um, why am i getting an internal error when updating a picture? Moonboy65 (talk) 23:59, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Generation VI icons

Can i get the permission to upload cleaner versions of the X and Y icons (Chespin-Volcanion)? Moonboy65 (talk) 01:48, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

Adding categories

For the future, please put the categories on the bottom of the summary page, thanks. ht14 02:57, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

Actually, for the specific category you're using, instead of adding the category, it's better that you incorporate it in the template. There is a parser that asks for whether it's a high-res image: by saying "yes", the category is automatically added. For an example, under the summary for Spinarak ({{Sugimoriart|167|Spinarak|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s|yes}}), see how there's a section that says "yes"? Just add yes to the end and you'll be set. Any questions, feel free to ask. ht14 03:05, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
Ah, I didn't see that, thanks for the hint! Moonboy65 (talk) 03:36, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

X & Y Games and Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire battle sprites

Many battle sprites of Pokemon in the four games that I mentioned in the headlines are missing from the Pokemon pages on Bulbapedia. It's too long for me to list, but the guy that originally did them way back around December 2014 forgot to finish up putting in the remaining missing battle sprites. Do you think you can find and upload the missing battle sprites (You might have to look at each of the various Pokemon pages on Bulbapedia to know which pages are missing imagesCtc1017 (talk) 01:46, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

Which battle sprites are you referencing to, the trainers or the Pokémon themselves? Moonboy65 (talk) 01:49, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

The Pokemon themselves. Examples of Pokemon missing battle sprites includes Gyarados and Steelix. The missing battle sprites (in national Pokedex order) start at the page of Venusaur and end at the page of Hoopa.Ctc1017 (talk) 01:57, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

If i remember correctly, they have to be 240x240 pixels. Moonboy65 (talk) 01:59, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
I don't know where to find them, sorry about that. Moonboy65 (talk) 02:01, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

Images and fan sites

Hello. You have previously been told this, but just to make this absolutely clear, the uploading of images taken from other fan sites such as is prohibited on the Bulbagarden Archives. We are especially strict with this rule when it comes to screenshots taken from Nintendo 3DS games, so we link to the message regarding Nintendo 3DS upload permissions on the site notice, which is displayed at the top of every page on the Archives, and on the upload form, which is in loud and bold font and cannot be missed. Seeing as you have just uploaded an image taken from a fan site, even after being explicitly told that stealing images from other fan sites is not allowed on the Bulbagarden Archives, where exactly are you getting all of your other recently uploaded images from? --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 03:08, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

Using delete template

For the future, instead of using the {{delete}} template for the Sun and Moon images that have a different name between the Japanese and English games, use the {{move}} template instead. Initially, I was puzzled why you put a delete template on two of the images you marked up (in which case, an explanation would work fine as well). Thanks~! ht14 21:26, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

Acboy uploaded the english version for Guzma and Plumeria instead of uploading over the japanese versions and then put the {{move}} template. Is that a good explanation? --Moonboy65 (talk) 22:09, 11 August 2016 (UTC)


Hi! I was wondering if you could explain where you got the original images you uploaded for 483Dialga.png, 484Palkia.png, and 130Gyarados.png. I'm a bit curious where people find large art like that in the first place, but more than that, it's really weird to me that the colors seem to have changed fairly noticeably (by comparison at least)... I'd kind of like to see that it's an official image somewhere. Tiddlywinks (talk) 08:35, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

Found them on a site called tsoto, but most of the Pokémon artwork from there is in the wrong RGB coloration. So i had to edit those in Photoshop to try and match their official colors. --Moonboy65 (talk) 16:55, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
Can you explain exactly where, say, Dialga's image comes from on that site? (Like, with a page and/or image URL.) Either I'm missing something, or I'm not sure I see anything that could have been your source. Tiddlywinks (talk) 17:31, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
Nevermind, I guess I wasn't clicking "correctly" on Dialga. But I still don't know where Gyarados is at all. Could you help me understand where that one is better? Tiddlywinks (talk) 17:35, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
The Gyarados one is basically better in quality (not blurry). --Moonboy65 (talk) 20:20, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
That's not what I was asking. I was asking where exactly you found the source image for what you uploaded for Gyarados, because I don't think I see it on the site you mentioned. I.e., can you tell me a page URL where it's at? Tiddlywinks (talk) 20:59, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
Found it on a different site, try checking Pidgi. --Moonboy65 (talk) 21:10, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

Alright... You need to understand something, as it happens. Twice above, you've been warned about using fan sites. You've even been warned about PidgiWiki in particular.

This is not cool.

From now on: by default, it is ONLY acceptable for you to upload images that come directly from an official source. (Like you find it on an official Pokemon site.)

If you find a site like tsoto with images that you want to upload, you MUST ask for approval from a staff member here beforehand. If you have the least doubt about whether a site would be acceptable, please ask; we'll be much happier with that than discovering later on that something we didn't want was uploaded. (And just in case: do not assume that tsoto is (or isn't) approved. If you want to use any images from there in the future, ask someone on staff.)

Let's try to avoid another repeat of this mistake, please. Thank you. Tiddlywinks (talk) 02:53, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

Regarding your recent uploads

This has been bugging the heck out of me for a while, so I figured I'd make an account and say it: The most recent update you posted of the Sugimori artwork on Mienshao's page is missing its nose. Seliasei (talk) 12:15, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for notifying me on that, fixing it right away. Sorry about not being able to reply and fix it, was away for about 4 weeks. Moonboy65 (talk) 06:55, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

The staff would like to verify the source of all of your recent uploads. This includes File:SugimoriGreatBall.png, File:500Emboar.png, File:447Riolu.png, File:532Timburr.png, and File:298Azurill.png. Please provide the source link for each of these images. Thank you. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 03:20, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

Those are just re-uploads of the same file. --Moonboy65 (talk) 17:49, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
Those images are certainly not just re-uploads of the same file (and even if they were, we don't want you to just re-upload the same exact file; that's utterly pointless). File:SugimoriGreatBall.png is definitely not the same file, for obvious reasons; neither is File:447Riolu.png, which had its colors changed quite noticeably. File:500Emboar.png, File:532Timburr.png, and File:298Azurill.png have had parts of their edges adjusted. Bottom line is: we don't want official artwork to be altered. At all. You can take the artwork from an official source and upload that, but that's all there should be to it. None of this color-adjusting or edge-smoothing business. The second you alter it, it's not official, and we don't want any unofficial images posing as official artwork on the Archives.
Since you were uploading the "same file," and since you were one who uploaded the previous versions of those files (the ones of the Pokémon artwork), you should be able to cite where those images came from. So please provide the source link for those images. If you don't have/remember the exact link, you should at least remember the general site where those came from. And at the very least, you should be able to provide a source link for File:SugimoriGreatBall.png, as that image is most certainly not a simple "re-upload" of the same file and since the person who uploaded the last version of that file was not you. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 03:30, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
Just a reminder that this request is still in effect. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 04:01, 3 September 2016 (UTC)
In case you are uncertain, you are able (and expected) to respond to your talk page during your current block (which is for your failure to reply here). In addition to Carmenstar's questions above, I would also like you to explain where/how you got File:052Meowth.png, File:026Raichu.png, and File:105Marowak.png, which almost all have rough edges and are not on the page you wrote in their upload summaries. (Again, that's in addition. Please answer both our questions.) Tiddlywinks (talk) 12:59, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
Just in case, I want to reiterate that we expect a response here. Tiddlywinks (talk) 13:59, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
One last chance (if you're lucky): answer us. Tiddlywinks (talk) 14:34, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Gym Leaders Official Artwork

May I know where did you get those artworks of some re-uploaded images? like File:Diamond Pearl Crasher Wake.png I just want to help in editing it since we can observe a very unclean edges from the image due to smoothing from JPG to PNG. Thanks and hoping for a reply. --GASPERshut... 10:39, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

I upscaled them with a website called waifu2x to make them bigger... you can clean them up if you'd like. --Moonboy65 (talk) 04:25, 3 September 2016 (UTC)
That was an old upload, but I'd just like to remind you, Moonboy65, that altering official images in any way (except downsizing them to fit within our resolution or file size requirements) is not okay. (Also, please respond to Carmenstar97's message above.) Tiddlywinks (talk) 10:30, 3 September 2016 (UTC)

Fire Red and Leaf Green Pokémon Artwork

Quick question regarding the artworks, do we leave them untouched (the ones marked with {{bad image}}) or can I replace them with versions from the official Pokémon website? --Moonboy65 (talk) 01:16, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Pokémon artwork

Why are you using lower resolution versions of the Pokémon artwork when we have higher resolution artwork available? --SnorlaxMonster 02:43, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

You do realize those are from the Pokédex right? It's literally on the front page of the website. Moonboy65 (talk) 17:27, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
And why should we use the images from the official site's Pokédex over better quality images? It's not like the images we already have are fan-made. --SnorlaxMonster 18:13, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
Both the images you uploaded from the online Pokedex and the ones that were originally uploaded were from official sources, Moonboy65. If yours are lower resolution, is there a reason those are "better" than the ones we had originally? Tiddlywinks (talk) 16:58, 28 December 2016 (UTC)
If you look at both the original and Pokédex versions on a black background, you can see the difference on the outlines. --Moonboy65 (talk) 20:54, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

Character artworks

Why did you revert several character artworks back to the smaller version, despite the fact that the reverted versions were bigger and higher resolution? --Maxim (talk) 13:45, 27 December 2016 (UTC)

I upscaled them, why do you ask? --Moonboy65 (talk) 18:17, 27 December 2016 (UTC)
Could you explain where the hi-res version of File:Sun Moon Olivia.png came from? I'm usually at a loss for where to find art except just a couple places, so I'd love to know if there's somewhere else I can keep in mind.
(Also, if you've missed it, a response above would still be appreciated.) Tiddlywinks (talk) 16:58, 28 December 2016 (UTC)
Can you answer where the hi-res Olivia image came from? If you can't, I can only assume it's not an official source and revert it. Tiddlywinks (talk) 09:45, 31 December 2016 (UTC)


Did you accidentally miss EP052 and EP053 while uploading new higher quality header images? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:04, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

YouTube doesn't have EP052 and EP503 as they were rescheduled to air after EP057. in fact YouTube doesn't have episodes past EP057 or the banned episodes. --Moonboy65 (talk) 20:26, 27 May 2019 (UTC)
Oh? You took those shots from YouTube. I see. No problem. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 21:23, 27 May 2019 (UTC)
Yup, i used YouTube as I do not have any of the BD disks. Moonboy65 (talk) 21:51, 27 May 2019 (UTC)


Hope all is well, notice you uploading better images of existing ones, especially from the original series. Great stuff--BigDocFan (talk) 21:00, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

No problem! Moonboy65 (talk) 21:02, 27 May 2019 (UTC)
Don't suppose you can upload a logo free image of File:Stoutland anime.png?--BigDocFan (talk) 20:14, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
I can take a look! Moonboy65 (talk) 20:21, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
What about File:Litten fiery disposition.png? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 21:24, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
Hope you don't mind us turning to you with requests, the only videos I can find with the images have logos--BigDocFan (talk) 21:28, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
Could you also do File:Stoutland Fire Fang.png please?--BigDocFan (talk) 21:32, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
Keep in mind that I can only do XY,S/M or original series episodes up until EP057. I'll get to all those images eventually, don't worry. Moonboy65 (talk) 21:37, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
Regarding the recent WTP uploads, is there a problem with the original because I'm not seeing much difference?--BigDocFan (talk) 20:58, 29 May 2019 (UTC)
Images will take a bit of time to update, as well as the cache. My uploads are also from the official Pokémon website and YouTube. Moonboy65 (talk) 21:01, 29 May 2019 (UTC)
Was wondering if you could upload a 1280x720 image of Totem Gumshoos.png--BigDocFan (talk) 20:57, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Blastoise JP Blue Cover Art

I just found, on a tumblr page, an artwork of Blastoise from the japanese cover of Blue Version. Blastoise JP Blue Cover Art Since I'm not sure if it's the real deal, I'm leaving the link here so that someone more well-versed may verify its authenticity. It's one of the few classic artworks that has yet to be documented here, and the only version of it I had was ridiculously small. By the way, is there a zip file of all RB&GS Artworks?--Xrick03 (talk) 12:37, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

Not that I'm aware of Moonboy65 (talk) 16:34, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
Do you know someone who might know something?--Xrick03 (talk) 18:57, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
Spriteit might be able to help you, he's mostly on the discord. Moonboy65 (talk) 18:25, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
Left Spriteit a message on Discord. Let us see if some good news do come up. Thanks.--Xrick03 (talk) 19:37, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
No problem! Moonboy65 (talk) 18:50, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

Poké Ball image

Could you upload a picture of a standard Poké Ball from Pokémon Origins? Like from the first episode with the starter Poké Balls? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 13:36, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

Hello? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:30, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
I can certainly do that, what do want the image used for? Moonboy65 (talk) 16:33, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
For the "Poké Ball (item)" page on Bulbapedia. I've now placed it there. Thank you very much! --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:23, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
No problem! - unsigned comment from Moonboy65 (talkcontribs)

Sourcing, last warning

I told you above once before, in no uncertain terms, to only upload images directly from official sources.

Since then, you've had some habit of uploading images with questionable sources, and not answering when asked about them. And now you've decided to upload images you received from immewnity—that is, not directly from an official source. After all of these things, I find myself out of patience.

If you show that you cannot follow the directive above again, you will receive a block.

In short, if you upload something, you had better be able to point to a URL that shows that it was an official source. If you cannot do that, but you still want to upload something...ask someone about it. And if we ask you for a source, we expect you to answer in a timely manner or we will assume you are avoiding answering because you cannot give the "right" answer.

Please revert any images you uploaded that you sourced from immewnity. If I see any recent/questionable uploads that were not reverted, I will ask about them. Tiddlywinks (talk) 23:41, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

I have contacted you now twice on Discord, once at least two full days ago and again just now. You used Discord just before my first message and you used it after as well. In my last message I told you what I will tell you now.
If you do not respond by Friday, you will be blocked. If that happens and you still have not responded when your block ends, we will not accept you returning to make uploads like nothing happened. That means if you make an upload while still ignoring this, you will be blocked again. If that continues, you will eventually be banned from the Archives.
As we've told you, it is not acceptable to ignore staff. You've been blocked once before for it. We expect a response. Tiddlywinks (talk) 13:25, 14 July 2019 (UTC)


The anime image for Mawilite is overly blurry. Can you upload a better version of it? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:41, 20 July 2019 (UTC)


You've had many warnings in the past and recently about your uploads and your talk page, and you've been blocked once before for ignoring your talk page. For this continuing behavior, you are receiving a new block.

Going forward, we expect you to reply when contacted. We also expect you to be able to identify an official source that you directly took any uploads from if you make further uploads.

The part about expecting a reply starts now. That means you must acknowledge the two requirements I just stated. If you cannot return on such good footing, we will enact further blocks until you prove that you can acknowledge your talk page...or until we decide that it should be permanent. Tiddlywinks (talk) 21:57, 20 July 2019 (UTC)

For your recent uploads without any response, you are receiving a longer block. I hope during that time you will read this section and respond. Tiddlywinks (talk) 23:19, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
About the recent artwork uploads (Black and White most specifically), even if i wanted to put a URL/source from Immewnity (and yes I am aware he's with Pidgi), I wouldn't be able to as these most likely no longer exist or the original files from said URL/source have been removed to make way for newer games, unless they moved them to a different place I wouldn't know about that. Does that clear up anything or do you need more proof because that's all I got (and I mean it), probably won't be uploading anything for a while, unless it's anime related. --Moonboy65 (talk) 03:27, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
The BW screenshots from yesterday are also from Immewnity?
Our position is that you must get images directly from an official source. (At best, you must ask otherwise...and wait for approval before uploading.) If someone tells you they got them from an official source, that's not good enough. Either you can get them yourself directly from an official source to be 100% sure you're making good uploads, or you can refrain. Tiddlywinks (talk) 16:35, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
The BW screenshots are from the Pokémon Prime channel on Amazon, which sucks because I live in Canada and Pokémon Prime is only available in the US. --Moonboy65 (talk) 17:28, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
Wait...I'm confused. You uploaded these screenshots...that you actually had no way to screenshot? Tiddlywinks (talk) 12:19, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
Someone ripped the episodes directly from Amazon, I do not know how they did it though. Moonboy65 (talk) 17:34, 1 August 2019 (UTC)


I uploaded a new version of Ash Metapod.png, over the HQ YouTube screenshot you had upgraded it with some time ago. I'm sorry about this, but I honestly felt the picture needed to have a better focus on Metapod itself and not include Ash. If you want to upgrade the image into a high quality version of its current version, go ahead, I'd actually appreciate that. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:04, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
