Before uploading any images taken from Nintendo 3DS games, please take a moment to read this message.
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.

Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, Pattyman!

As a new user, you may wish to learn a few things that will be useful in your uploading:

The Manual of Style, or MoS, outlines the format and guidelines of all images on Bulbagarden Archives.

All of our administrators are here to help! Talk to them if you have any questions or problems with the Archives.

Tagging images with correct licenses and categories is a must. These guidelines will help you learn more about tagging images.

  • Please read the checklist when you upload media files. The checklist is there to make sure you are doing everything necessary when uploading said media files.
  • Be sure to tag and categorize all images. This helps organize the vast amount of images we have here.
  • Check if your image already exists by searching through categories, and Bulbapedia pages. This action will help prevent unnecessary duplicates from appearing.
  • When adding a licensing tag to anime or game screenshots, please avoid just choosing "Screenshot". This is not descriptive and places the images in the wrong category. Make sure to choose "Screenshot from a Pokémon game," or "Screenshot from the Pokémon anime." This will put them in the right categories, and help keep the Archives clean.
  • Does your image have a purpose? Will you be using it on a Bulbagarden Project? Avoid uploading images because you think they are "Cute" or "Awesome". That clutters the Archives.
  • Personal images are limited to two for each User. Personal images include personal logos, personal trainer sprites, drawings, trainer cards and mostly any image that would only be used in the User: namespace and have no encyclopedic value to Bulbagarden and its affiliates. Please tag these with the {{i-Personal}} template for easier organization. Under no circumstance should a photograph of one's self ever be uploaded onto Bulbagarden Archives.
  • In addition, please upload images with meaningful names. Names that are just numbers, for example, do not describe anything about the image, and can make it difficult for searchers. Names are just as important as licenses and categories, so make them descriptive. Please be sure that the filenames contain alphanumeric characters only.
  • Due to the many automated templates used on the wiki, lowercase extensions are imperative. That means jpg and png instead of JPG and PNG. It looks cleaner, it works better, and it does not cause any problems. Make sure to always use lowercase extensions.
  • If you're confused about the requirements for uploading files, have a look at this guide.
 Thank you, and have a good time uploading here!

Hi (Part 1)

Please upload anime screenshots as .png and not .jpg. Thanks Jellotalk 19:59, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

Important 1

I can't stress this enough but, please, please don't upload any screenshots from Serebii. They do not like us taking their stuff. Also, the screenshots you're uploading are very bad in quality, please try to get clear and clean shots. This has been your last warning. Jellotalk 03:50, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

How am I taking stuff from serebii (not counting the Marill one)? Also, are you referring to the Swampert pic or all of the ones that I uploaded (I am a beginner in this so I didn't know what bad quality meant in terms of uploading)? Pattyman 18:38, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
The one you posted on my page was from Serebii, and you uploaded that same exact image here. File:Ash Mijumaru.png is an example of a good quality image. File:Cadee Mareep.png is an acceptable image (see the dimensons: 320x240) Generally, taking screenshots from Youtube is not a good idea either (unless the quality is really good or HD) Jellotalk 18:48, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
I had to upload those very quickly because I would have been locked out again. I just saw in Solana's page that someone already got rid off the unnecessary pics. Pattyman 19:01, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Important 2

I removed them because they were taken from Serebii. --Psyライダー 19:03, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

I knew that (mentioned above). I was about to do it but you already got the job done. Pattyman 19:06, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
From now on, get your images from like, like Jello mentioned above. They're cleaner and better than Serebii's pictures. Filb also has given us permission to use their images, while Serebii has not, nor will we ever want to use his images. Also, uploading bad quality images because you needed to do them quickly isn't much of an excuse, next time, find time to upload better images. Thank you. --Psyライダー 19:19, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Important 3

When uploading, just upload the image once, and the server will eventually swap over to the newest revision. There is no need to upload the same image as many times as you did. Thank you. --Psyライダー 19:56, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

When I uploaded the new image the first time, it kept on taking me to the old one instead [Even with the multiple uploads (that was when you said power off Einstein)]. Pattyman 20:07, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
That's what always happens, you should have refreshed the page. Also, keep the attitude problem off the page thanks. --Psyライダー 20:26, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
I'm sorry for what happened before. Pattyman 23:32, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

You have been blocked

Because you have failed to stop uploading images from Considering you said "This image from serebii did not show Tracey's head completely.", it tells me you did steal it from Serebii. Take this day off to possibly find better images not from Serebii. Further insubordination will result in a longer block. Thank you. --Psyライダー 17:40, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

Good job

Your most recent upload of Rochelle. That's how anime screenshots should look. Keep that up and you're good to go. Jellotalk 02:24, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, I appreciate it. Looks like the jpg counterpart of Rochelle can be deleted. Pattyman 02:34, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
No problem. Also, next time you're replacing a .jpg just put a {{delete|reason here}} tag on it, so admins can find it easily and delete it. Thanks. Jellotalk 02:38, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Utilizing the {{delete}} template

Only use it when you are sure the image is unused in the 'pedia. In other words, put the template after you have at least put up the replacement or removed it from Bulbapedia. One instance of that was your choice of putting up the template for File:Gary-and-misty.jpg, which is currently used in Shipping:EgoShipping. ht14 00:20, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Hey, this is your second warning. Make sure that when you use the {{delete}} template, that, unless it's userpages, the image in question is currently unused in Bulbapedia and/or Bulbanews. Chances are that the reason that there was a revert war between you and Renzo493 in the first place was because of your lack of replacing the proper image on Bulbapedia before using the delete template. If you have any questions, speak to me here after your block is over. ht14 04:05, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

File titles

The standard here is either the name followed by "manga" or "Adventures." So for instance, it'd be File:Giovanni Nidoking Adventures.png or File:Giovanni Nidoking manga.png. Preferably, it'd be the former, but in any case, the "manga" should be lowercase. That goes for anime images as well: "anime" is lowercase. Thanks. ht14 03:58, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Hi (Part 2)

Please do not upload files with non-alphanumeric characters in its name. The only characters allowed are A-Z, a-z, and 0-9. If you're confused about the requirements for uploading files, have a look at this guide. --ht14 00:21, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

I know what you're referring to. The nickname of that Pokémon was an actual number (not trying to make up an excuse or anything). Pattyman 00:39, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
It was not the number six issue, it was when I placed parenthesis around the word, anime. I saw it on the image's history. Pattyman 01:38, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
Hey, you do know that you can add categories right from the upload form? Just add [[Category:whatever]] under the summary. Jellotalk 02:45, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
Faster process for me then. Pattyman 02:48, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
One more thing. If possible, make sure you italicize and link the anime eps. For instance, for Hatching a Plan, it'll be ''{{bp|EP230|Hatching a Plan}}'', which comes out as this: Hatching a Plan. I know it'll be a bit more work, but at least italicize them, thanks. ht14 23:04, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Edit warring

Edit warring is not tolerated here. You have been blocked for 1 day. The policy on Bulbapedia is that everyone who participates in said edit war gets blocked for the number of reverts they made, minus the initial revert. Please bring the issue up with an Administrator next time, instead of taking part in an edit war. Thanks. Jellotalk 03:58, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

Hey :D!

If you find a problem with any of the moves, try switching them to the Mv template :D!

{{subst:Mv|Pokémon using move|Attack being used|Other Pokémon|gen}}

Thanks! --+ Joeshie + (is Me!) 03:10, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

Do I type the Mv template in the Summary? Pattyman 03:25, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
Yep, just delete everything there except for like moving templates and the {{subst:MV... thing will handle everything from categories to licensing :D --+ Joeshie + (is Me!) 05:34, 25 November 2010 (UTC)
