Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, Poke.geek!
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!

Fan art

I am sorry but the fan arts and personal images are not allowed on Archives, please do not upload them. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 11:45, 4 November 2011 (UTC)


Please do not forget to put the categories onto new images you upload, as you upload them. If you want to know more about the requirements for uploading files, visit the FAQ section. If you have any other query regarding Archives, you may ask. Thank you, have a nice day. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 18:00, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

Sorry for that! --✔Poke.geek✔ 03:19, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Regarding your uploads and edits

Categories go below the licensings. If the location name is capitalized, so should the filename. So... Nidorina Laramie Ranch.png, not Nidorina laramie ranch.png. Finally, episode names are italicized. Thanks. ht14 04:22, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Actually, the images you uploaded... they are poor in quality compared to the ones already uploaded. So... I'm not sure what you're trying to do. ht14 04:26, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
Can you please delete those pictures that I uploaded. --✔Poké.geek✔ 19:15, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Images not changing

When an image looks the same, purge the page by clicking the clock to the left of your name and then refresh. When you upload a new file, it changes but not always automatically. All you need to do is refresh the page until it changes. Ataro 00:23, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks :D --✔Poké.geek✔ 20:33, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Town maps

While I appreciate the hard work you did, it would be best if you avoid uploading the Town maps as pngs for the time being as those should actually stay as gifs. Don't worry about the ones that were uploaded as pngs. Pattyman 14:07, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

So this means that we will have to remove the {{gif}} template from all the town maps so that they don't appear in this category? Pokégeek 15:02, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
Afraid so. However, the missing categories and some other stuff can be added. I added the template on there in the first place as I thought they needed to be saved as pngs, but I was then told that it wouldn't be necessary. Pattyman 18:52, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Regarding the png replacements

It's great that you're uploading the png replacements for the gifs we currently have, however, is it possible for you to get your own image from external sources instead of print-screening it? I'd much rather actual uploads than a print screen because the pngs taken from the gif images are actually really bad-quality as a result. If possible, after uploading the png versions, insert the bad image template as well (say, if they're too small). Thanks. ht14 00:31, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

No, i don't print screen the images. I convert gifs to pngs using a tool which is mentioned in to-do list . Pokégeek 13:06, 16 March 2012 (UTC)
Haha, my apologies. By the way, you don't have to notify my talk page. Your talk page is on my Watchlist. Thanks again. ht14 14:55, 16 March 2012 (UTC)
Oh, also, the png replacements are sometimes still too small compared to many other pics. So, it's still preferred that you put the bad image template up because of its small quality? I'm not sure. I'll let you be the judge of that. =) ht14 15:02, 16 March 2012 (UTC)
Done. I've added the {{bad image}} template to all the png replacements except in these two pics. I'm not sure about these pics. Pokégeek 15:20, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
The ones you didn't mark are fine. ht14 04:22, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Hiya, thanks for updating some of the manga images!! In the future, please try to re-link all of the pages the old file linked to, as it creates a broken link once the .jpg is deleted. thanks! ^o^ --ZestyCactus 20:07, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
Oh, sorry for that. Pokégeek 13:41, 9 April 2012 (UTC)


I know you are trying to help, but please let me handle the DP191 errors since I wanted to do them in the first place. Thanks !----DJWolfy 15:21, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Okay. Sorry! Pokégeek 15:23, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
No problem.----DJWolfy 15:28, 9 April 2012 (UTC)


Summary & categories can both go in the summary input of the upload form, and licensing has its own dropdown. Categories don't have to go under licensing. When uploading an entirely new file, it's better to put them in with the summary as well, as to save from having to go back and re-edit the file page. *.----DJWolfy 15:51, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

There is no issue with Poke.geek moving the categories from summary to licensing when adding additional categories. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 15:55, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
He didn't add, he just moved them.----DJWolfy 16:04, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
There were changes being made that weren't connected to the categories. It's fine, calm down. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 16:08, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
I'm calm :P, been ever since this morning. But what I saw when I looked at the 'prev' history was that he only moved them. At least, that's what I saw.----DJWolfy 16:46, 9 April 2012 (UTC)


You only welcome people who have actually uploaded/edited a file. The only contribution the user you recently welcomed has made so far is a talk page comment on Magnedeth's talk page. Just letting you know :D.--Chalkwriter 20:24, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Actually, that welcome was fine. They were asking for information regarding uploading, the welcome gives a fair share of useful information that they were looking for. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 23:59, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
