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.

Bulbagarden Archives logo.png
Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, PsychicRider!

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!

Because logging onto AIM would be far too silly

I see you've been fixing people's crappy uploads. If possible, could you get these higher-quality versions in png format, reupload to a new filename and tag the old one with delete? If the ones you are finding are in jpg already feel free to ignore this message; just that png is preferred and if we can get png, it would be good to have it. —darklordtrom 21:47, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

As silly as this sounds, nah...If I save them as File.png, it shows as a png, but it makes them unable to upload to the Archives. --PsychicRider 21:51, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
You need to upload to a new filename. png cannot replace a jpg image. —darklordtrom 21:54, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
I saved Oreburgh as Oreburgh as .png, but it told me "The file is corrupt or has an incorrect extension. Please check the file and upload again." ----PsychicRider 21:55, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Assuming you mean the Oceanic museum... I just got it as png. No idea what's wrong. —darklordtrom 22:03, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Well I saved my own Oceanic Museum using all types when I was saving it, so it went to png automatically, but it still said above... D:. The only ones that work to upload, are JPEG...----PsychicRider 22:05, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Maybe if you save it explicitly as png? I'm really not sure what's happening. —darklordtrom 22:15, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
...When I'm supposed to save as png, I save it as File.png, or I rename it as file.png...It always fails...Like seriously, no joke...If it's anything but png, it's like "OhMaGawd! I'm funna be on Bulbagarden", PNGs are like "No! Does not want"...----PsychicRider 22:20, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Anime Images

Whenever uploading images of anime scenes, please upload them as PNG files. A JPEG file is typically of lesser quality than a PNG file and, as a result, just about everything outside of TCG scans are supposed to be PNGs.

Also, don't convert JPEGs to PNGs and expect them to pass. Doing such retains all of the JPEG qualities and serves to merely increase the size of a lower-quality file. Very rarely does such an image remain in usage for long before it gets replaced. Instead, whenever you want to upload an anime screenshot, save it directly as a PNG. It's not that hard, as many image editors support PNG these days, and even Paint in Windows 7 saves images in PNG by default. --Shiningpikablu252 18:27, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Yeah I don't have any image editors...BUT, Paint did the trick~. Thanks so much. :D --PsychicRider 20:58, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Hey. Any way to upload some clearer images of Giga Impact so we could actually see a little more of the face? Just curious. :ht14 01:39, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Uh...I dunno...D:...I just try to get one that has more of the move in it...>_>. --Psyライダー 01:58, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
Oh well... ht14 02:11, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Uploading new files

Read the top. i.e. no é. ht14 19:21, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Also, when using {{delete}}, please write the reason for it no matter how obvious it may seem. ht14 19:22, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
As in not writing that it's no longer needed because it's JPG/JPEG? --PsychicRider 19:47, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
Yes that, but more like labeling certain duplicates, like "duplicate/copy of <insert file here>." That's the purpose of the reason section. If it's extremely obvious though, then fine. ht14 19:48, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
D:. Sorry, I don't really use the Delete thing here usually...So I didn't know...As for the é, I figured it was well OK since it's common in the name...D:. --PsychicRider 19:51, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
Because of a user who added parentheses in the filename, the server crashed for about a third of a day. Not pleasant. I got yelled at even though it wasn't even my fault... x.x Oh well. There seems to be no problems at the moment though. ht14 19:57, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
Well, should it be added that é's should also not be added because it seems like it would be more common to add cause it's in Pokémon so often? --PsychicRider 20:12, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
Interesting point, but the other welcome page says that é should be there... so... ht14 22:03, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
I was wrong, on the basis of Maverick, but I'm right on the basis of Kevzo... so... ht14 23:52, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
I really don't want to block you, but don't forget about no non-alphanumeric characters in the title. I personally don't mind, but... yeah. ht14 01:37, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

For using apostrophes? --Psyライダー 01:39, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Yup. I personally disagree and think it's only issues with hyphens and other symbols at the end of the file, but if you disagree (like me), then ask. I'm not sure if Mav is ok with it, but Kevzo is changing them, so... yeah. See here for details. 01:43, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
Oh, well I knew that I couldn't use alphanumeric characters, but I didn't realize that even though it is something different, that ' would be able to cause problems...>>. My bad...--Psyライダー 01:45, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
As DETH said, we're not sure if it does cause problems, but to be on the safe side. ht14 01:48, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
OK. --Psyライダー 01:49, 22 January 2010 (UTC)


{{p}} and {{m}} are still in effect here. Thus, it'd be {{p|Budew}} using {{m|Mega Drain}} in the anime, not {{bp|Budew}} using {{bp|Mega Drain}} in the anime. Yeah, don't forget to tag the move as well. Thanks. ht14 02:39, 6 May 2010 (UTC)


It's obvious that these are converted. The RGB Kanto was for sure JPG->PNG. I have the original.--immewnitythemew 21:10, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

...FAIL. Well, the version you uploaded was a JPG version of the other one we had. I'll upload this "perfect" version.--immewnitythemew 21:17, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
You know, you don't have to be a dick about it. You can go take your little snobby attitude elsewhere, kthanx...I'm not interested in your problems. I uploaded a PNG, and you didn't like it. It's as simple as that to come and tell me that instead of saying FAIL the first time, got it? Also, if you want to not worry about it, how about you upload the image in a better quality the first time... --Psyライダー 21:30, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
Sorry if this sounded rude; I didn't mean for it to. Here are a bunch of HUGE cookies to make up for it! :D

P.S. I was saying fail to myself, btw. I thought the original image was JPG, but it was BMP. What must have happened was someone saved the image as a BMP, opened it in Paint, saved as a JPG, uploaded it, then you downloaded it, converted it to PNG, and uploaded it. Confusing. :)--immewnitythemew 21:01, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

Well, the high quality JPG pics were unnecessary, but all in all, I accept your apology. Thank you for apologizing, and no hard feelings at all. --Psyライダー 21:26, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
I guess that's what to expect from me; high-resolution images that occasionally crash the server... *sweatdrop*--immewnitythemew 22:16, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
Uh...right...--Psyライダー 05:05, 30 June 2010 (UTC)


You notice how most of the anime images are File:X anime.png, not File:X Anime.png? Can you try that as well? Consistency purposes. It's up to you though. ht14 17:15, 31 May 2010 (UTC) be honest...I noticed that some were File:Xanime, File:X anime, and some before were File: X Anime...and I kinda like File:X Anime, so I adapted to that...So sorry...D: --Psyライダー 17:25, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
As I said, preference, so no worries. =] ht14 17:27, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
Should I upload to lowercase anime? --Psyライダー 17:28, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
Preference? Consistency? The choice is yours. ht14 17:35, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
Alright, I'll try to remember anime, but no promises, cause I'll likely forget...D; --Psyライダー 17:40, 31 May 2010 (UTC)


For the hires cat thing. It made it go by a LOT faster. Now just to find images people forgot to categorize...--immewnitythemew 20:20, 2 June 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for helping move all those files, Psy Psy! We make a great team. *hi5* JelloTalk 21:01, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

You're welcome Jell Jell! We're so awesome! Team PsyJello is da bestest! *hi5 backs* Psyライダー 21:15, 18 July 2010 (UTC)
*tears up* Where's my partner? ht14 21:22, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

Minor reminder

Check to see if the images are used in Bulbanews as well. ht14 22:46, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

He got banned on BP for a day (don't ask why, lol), so that's why he can't go around replacing the images. I've done some, but I'm kind of busy with other things right now. His ban should be lifted in a few minutes. JelloTalk 23:03, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
Or another 3 hours...>:U. --Psyライダー 23:30, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
I've noticed, though that wasn't quite the point of this reminder... but sure. ht14 23:48, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
I know you know, but just another reminder... on the other side of the spectrum, we'll make sure it says so in the summary as well. ht14 00:56, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Image request

While you're at it... can you upload Stadium 1 of Brawl? The current one is in gif... ht14 02:08, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

BAM! Done, you're welcome~. --Psyライダー 02:29, 22 July 2010 (UTC)


Oh god, I did not mean to send you to Rollback Hell on this page. I am so sorry; this mouse sucks. Darkeiya 02:16, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Don't worry about it Darke. Me and a certain blonde haired musician will make it up to you. :D --Psyライダー 02:29, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Hey PR

Those that appear more than once in the anime are given the licensing: {{i-Fairuse-screenshot-anime-character}}, which in turn leads to Anime characters. Movie characters get their own category, Movie characters. All other COTDs are as per usual. ht14 19:20, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Hmmm...Ok..I'll try to remember that next time...>_>. --Psyライダー 19:48, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Why did you do that

>v> Beta Zero 20:12, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Welcome you? We're supposed to do that to anyone who actually contributes...:V. --Psyライダー 20:15, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

May I suggest...

... you use Template:anmv? Not quite sure how it works, but it works wonders. TC uses it a lot. Just more organized, but it needs to be subst:. ht14 04:30, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Do I have to? I mean, I don't know if there's a problem with how I'm doing it, but should I be using that? --Psyライダー 04:32, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
Just for organization purposes... or do what I do... type the whole thing out. Minor things. It's not a big problem since I clean it up anyway, but yeah. ht14 04:34, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
I think I tried it once, but it gave me two summaries and two licenses or something weird, so i stopped using it :V --Psyライダー 04:46, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
You need to get used to it, but as I said, you could just type it all out. ht14 01:50, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

Super Effective

Include the 0 for the first nine strips so that they sort good. I've moved the two we have.

Uh... I'm not here right now. I'm in class, working hard. Yeah. —darklordtrom 23:49, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Alrighty o7. --Psyライダー 00:34, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

PidgiWiki stuff

Keep in mind the original pics were JPG. I didn't convert them. At least Surface Blur the images with a low setting if you are to do that.--immewnitythemew 20:29, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

._.? I have no idea what that means...:V --Psyライダー 20:31, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
The Torchic pic was a JPG. You uploaded it as a PNG. To remove JPG artifacts, install Paint.NET, open the image, and go to Effects>Blurs>Surface Blur and put the setting on 2 for the first thing, and 5 for the second. If you're still confused, I'll help you later; I gotta go.--immewnitythemew 20:34, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
Does it work on Macs? --Psyライダー 20:38, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
Sadly, no. There should be some equivalent, though.--immewnitythemew 22:00, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
Well I'm using a Mac, and I figured as much, so I uploaded as is. D:. --Psyライダー 22:05, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Excuse me

Not to be rude, but is there any particular reason you reverted me? Replaced the Weezing picture with the one where half of the Pokémon is blocked out by Ash's big head? Missingno. Master 14:03, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Because the one you uploaded was ugly and small. --Psyライダー 14:11, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, the quality was extremely bad (from youtube perhaps?), it would be preferred if you could upload an equal or higher quality screenshot of that. Jellotalk 17:44, 24 August 2010 (UTC)


Hey Psy, I manually checked the "anime screenshots" section and there are a lot (I do mean A LOT) of images which are not needed, some of them are in jpgs even though we have their pngs and some are not transparent. So, I was wondering will it be okay to delete all those junky images (as we have their better versions already). I know it'll take a lot of time but we really need to get rid off that junk yard. It is way too time taking because Anime screenshots section is a huge thing so I prefer to check Pokemon category wise instead. But it will take me some time to find and put delete template on all of 'em as my exams are on their way. So, will it be Okay? Thank you. ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 02:13, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

This is the section I started with when I first joined Bulbapedia/the Archives. Trust me, it's an ongoing job, and well it's going to take a while. Jellotalk 02:31, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
Oh, well I'll try to continue this on-going thing along with transparency fix issue *Slow and Steady Wins the Race :P*. I really want to help you out with Generation V stuff but I don't have the games and I'm not a game-fan either :( ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 02:41, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Flamethrower images

Man!! Why did you deleted the images that i uploaded? they aren't so difference of the awful image (nobody can not see charizard well) that was before. I will upload a new version with a better quality, but i found two new images even better. take a look and reply me if you liked... they are these: image:Charizard Flamethrower3.png or image:Charizard_FLametrhower4.png

But the image of today is terrible thanks fou you attention!

Pedraito 16:47, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

Your image was smaller than the original, and grainy, so it was definitely not better than the original, I can see Charizard just fine. I would rather the image be of current animation style, if possible. I'm not particularly fond of either of them, but the first one is kinda better. However, just because I like that one better, don't think that is reason to change them, because I won't allow it to stay, okay? --Psyライダー 17:07, 22 October 2010 (UTC)
I'm here again to ask you to reconsider in your decision, the current image is small (320px), not so high quality, bad desingned(mainly charizard) and you can not matter with it, but my favorite pokemon is charizard and i always make big efforts to find this image, I can't sleep when i remember that image as in charizard and flamethrower article. I don't wanna be boring but i will ask you one more time, can i replace the curret picture for this oneimage:Charizard Flamethrower3.png ? man, we have to admit, it is better.... thanks Pedraito 00:13, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
Apparently Jell did not see a use for it. So I'm going to with her on this. Also, don't reupload something if an admin deletes it, as you might face a short block, thanks. --Psyライダー 02:40, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Sevii Isle 22 image

Hey! I noticed you deleted my picture of the Sevii Isle 22 location data on my ShinyGold Growlithe in LeafGreen! Let me take a guess, too low-quality? If so (which it probably is), I'll find a better camera to take it with. -GSNSmashFan3

Yes, but also, we don't need an image from a hack. --Psyライダー 14:26, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

Delete and change

Hey! Could you delete this image: image:Final stage of Seismic Toss.JPG. There is already one image like that in png format. they are duplicated. and would you mind changing the name of this image:image:Charizardfirespin.png? The current name is Charizardfirespin.png but could you change to Charizard Fire Spin.png ? Thanks for your help. Pedraito 12:14, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Watermark word

What does the word, watermark, mean in terms of uploading images? Pattyman 03:59, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Anything with a logo or something obstructing the image. By the way Psy is on leave right now, so probably won't be replying. Jellotalk 04:02, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Hey, really sorry about all the misnamed sprites...

For my upload macro, I had to manually provide the list of each necessary sprite. They were separated by commas and for the few that went all screwy, the cause was my forgetting to place a comma between the sections for different species. Thank you much for deleting my blunders and keeping the Archives safe and sane. : ) «hexagonTHEORY» 14:22, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

It's all good bro. Next time if you want, you can skip over them and just slap a {{move}} template on it and the correct file name and we can move it, which is easier IMO then just uploading it again. You're doing a great job by the way, thanks for uploading the BW sprites. It's what I do. 8D --Psyライダー 14:27, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
Heh, thing is, that's not easier than just uploading them again when you're making your computer do all the work for you automagically. : ) Thank you for the approval; really, it makes it all worthwhile: while the macro was pushing, I couldn't do anything on my computer because it has to "see" the page to work its wizardry. As for it being "what you do", I'm happy to have permanently relieved you of the position; that is, they're all done, in case you hadn't noticed. (Psst... don't forget to drop my name for the relevant November award. ^_^) «hexagonTHEORY» 14:40, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
Well, whatever makes it go faster and gets the job done and makes the user comfortable is important in the long run. I thought about doing more sprites, but I was like for relieve me of my position? D:< *bans* I'll see what I can do though, it's up for the EB to decide, but you did a good job so I don't see why not. \o/ --Psyライダー 14:47, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Hey I'm here to complain...

SHIT!!! Why did you delete the image tha i uploaded? it was being used in charizard main page! And i would put in ash charizard article(it would be nice a picture with ash and charizard battling togheter), cause the page needs at least one good image, those that are there are craps, they are in there cause YOU put them there, so they are perfect! come on god of bulbapedia, let other people contribuite with the site! And another thing! Someone deleted a sprite that i have been using in my personal page, i had permission to use it, I want my images back! Pedraito 22:54, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Excuse me, but what image did he delete that was being used? You keep uploading horrible quality images and you expect us to take you seriously? We're not stopping anyone from contributing. You just have to follow the guidelines on this site, which you clearly haven't been doing. What images do you want back? You are only allowed 2 personal images, and so if you had any extra they must have been deleted. Don't be so rude next time, please. Jellotalk 23:34, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
Horrible quality? Sorry but it's not truth! First, the image that i uploaded it was in png format, big size(710 x 400), the both characthers are very well designed, and the image used to be in two article and nobody complained about it. only cause i tried change the charizard flamethrower image( by the way the current one is a trash), now he is deleting all my edits. it's totaly unfair! And about my two personal images, one of them(a custom charizard sprite) was deleted, i had only two and one was to space! I will say again: I want my images back! Pedraito 23:50, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
Look, don't accuse me of lying. I know when an image looks shitty. Just because it's bigger, does not mean it's better. Quality isn't about size, it's about whether it or not it looks like it was a picture taken from your TV or some horrible youtube video. Your images are so blurry and look horrible, anyone can vouch for that. You need to stop taking things so personally, we're just doing our job. Which images do you want back? You could at least link to them so I can do something about it. Jellotalk 00:08, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
I deleted it cause it wasn't being used. If it was, I wouldn't have. Check your facts first, thanks. Second, coming to an admin with an attitude like yours won't get me to reconsider it at all. Third, the image that is being used in the article is newer and shows a more accurate depiction of Charizard, focusing on him and the body, because that is what the article is about. Fourth, your image has an unnecessary border on it. There is nothing wrong with the image being used. Fifth, Nate deleted it. Scream at him, not me. Come at me like this again and you'll face a block cause I am not going to tolerate this kind of behavior. Thanks. --Psyライダー 00:10, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
Only cause an image is newer its better? look at it, and you will see that charizard is totaly bad designed! the image is not bad at all, but charizard look "drawed" by a 5 years kid! And you should give a chance to images of original series, i'm sure that you know that it was the biggest serie of anime and lot of pokemons have good images from there. and about my image the border its almost invisible, and when you put in the article they become invisible. aonther thing, its is good the image stay in charizard main article cause the bulbapedia bigger diversity in images. if you don't want use my image, could you at least find another image of charizard in anime? the current one is awful! Pedraito 00:55, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
I suggest you think about uploading other images than Charizard, it's annoying having to delete the leftover images from your upload sprees. The current image is one that was from this past series, which is what Bulbapedia standards use. Current is better. Your image is from movie 3, back in 2000. Deal with the fact that people will disagree. Don't take it personally. --Psyライダー 01:02, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
Man, I promise you if you let the image stay in any article(Ash Charizard or Charizard main page) I will never upload anothe charizard image! It was so dificult find the image and when i've seen that many other sites were copy it, i became so happy and proud that i really am addicted in this site. don't cause me so big frustation, could you not open only one exception, please? Pedraito 01:14, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
The image is in usage now. However, it is not the head image and it will not be because it does not show his body enough. Please don't change it and please stop uploading unnecessary images of Charizard. Thank you. --Psyライダー 01:29, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
Yeah!!! it is perfect!!! Man you are great!!!!!!!! You don't know how many jumps i've done here! Thank you!!! I will never uploaded another charizard image again! Thank you!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!!

Something I saw

Did you know that jpg images tend to fade overtime when saved and used? When I saved an image as a jpg on the computer, it faded and got messy. The fading can be one of the reasons why they aren't allowed to be uploaded. Pattyman 18:39, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Recent edit summaries

That recent edit summary that Jello hid was rather unacceptable. Staff members are not exempt from the rules, and I'm quite disappointed that it had to come to this. The code of conduct still applies, and I think it might be useful if you at least skim it over some. Please think about what you say in edit summaries before you save: they are visible to everyone. I'm giving you a short block. If you have any issues, please feel free to come talk to me. MaverickNate 04:14, 22 November 2010 (UTC)


Psy, don't you remember this? Kenji said we can't use a spoiling header (if the spoiler is not there in the Japanese title) so we can't use that screenshot. That's the only reason I replaced it. ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 19:43, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

No I don't. I never looked at that. I added it and never looked back at it. However, just because it isn't used on Bulbapedia, doesn't mean that it can't be used anywhere else. Plus, not like it's any more of a spoiler than the episode title, but that's just me. >_>. I don't really see the point of having temp images when we have regular images that can be used such as the BW012. However, the BW013 temp is fine because we don't have an image existing. That's why I changed it. --Psyライダー 19:52, 25 November 2010 (UTC)
I know but I guess, the rules are the same for both sites (I think). If not, then nevermind :) ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 20:00, 25 November 2010 (UTC)
I'll ask Rex. However by her statement of "Not necessarily. She's just standing there. Someone could just believe that she wants to challenge the Gym Leader. And yes, we do base on Japanese titles. See AG028. --ケンジのガール 05:19, 3 March 2010 (UTC)", just from me, looking at the pic, I could be led to believe that maybe Ash is returning the egg from Team Rocket and doesn't get it or that he's giving it to Ash for a while. But I dunno, I'm going to ask Rex about it, more so about the temp thing, cause the images can always be changed when they air. :V. --Psyライダー 20:06, 25 November 2010 (UTC)
Sounds good to me. ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 20:09, 25 November 2010 (UTC)


Well, I uploaded the old one, so you can delete the old revision from the IV one :D! There's a shortcoming in the Mv template. If you have two Pokémon that are the same in the move image, then the categories don't work out well. --+ Joeshie + (is Me!) 23:47, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

Actually I lied, there's no shortcoming with the categories in the specific instance I am talking about :O. But there are problems if you consider double or triple battles unless one enters categories independent of the template. --+ Joeshie + (is Me!) 23:51, 25 November 2010 (UTC)
OK. I'll do that. I'm pretty sure they can't be moved, but I'm not sure. I'll ask Nate, since he might know. If they can, I'll let you know. :D --Psyライダー 23:53, 25 November 2010 (UTC)
Nevermind, they can't be moved. The image would have to be reuploaded. So it might not be a good idea to delete the revision with the image. D: --Psyライダー 23:56, 25 November 2010 (UTC)
Okay thanks for checking it out :D! And I know you weren't ignoring me XD. --+ Joeshie + (is Me!) 00:00, 26 November 2010 (UTC)
No problem. Thanks for helping us organize the Archives. :D --Psyライダー 00:37, 26 November 2010 (UTC)

Deleting images in a page

Do you know how images can be deleted without deleting the page itself? Pattyman 01:38, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

I don't think there is a way, but I'm not sure. I'll ask Nate or Jell if they're around. --Psyライダー 01:53, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
Ok. I was just curious as I saw on most logs about old revisions being deleted. Pattyman 01:58, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
Oh. Revisions. Yeah. I thought you were talking about something completely different. Sorry. While the revisions can be deleted, we prefer them to be kept because they're like the history, however, duplicate revisions are sometimes deleted. --Psyライダー 02:07, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Deux Questions

Un) File:Unova.jpg is over the 1280 pixel limit. I was banned for a short period of time because of doing something similar to this.

Deux) File:BW player selection English.png was originally a JPG. I know because I uploaded the original. JPG->PNG is a no-no, so I'm told.

--immewnitythemew 03:08, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

Psy won't be here tonight, so I hope you don't mind me answering.
1) "very few images (for example, maps of in-game locations) will be allowed above 1,280 pixels" Use your common sense here. Maps do not count. The image you got blocked for was Pokémon artwork, which is not allowed to be above 1000 pixels. Also, uploading for the sake of resizing is frowned upon. You seem to not trust my judgment here, because you reverted me anyway when I had originally reverted you on that Unova map. This has happened several times with several images.
2) I can't stress this enough but I know for a fact someone would upload over that .jpg with when the game actually does come out. We do not want .jpgs. They are going to be replaced of anyway, why not just save yourself the hassle and upload it as .png? That image can easily be uploaded over with a nice clean version later on. Jellotalk 03:45, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
1) "maps of in-game locations". That means maps ripped from games, hence in-game. And, I've seen numerous people upload for the sake of resizing.
2) Understood for this situation, but some others don't make sense.

--immewnitythemew 12:30, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

No one wants a small image of a map. Obviously there are such a thing as exceptions.
OK, seriously, no one cares if the image is jpg->png, maybe you can tell there's a difference, but 99% of the Bulbagarden users and more don't have the time or want to analyze every sing picture to see if they're legitimately png or not. Whether or not they're naturally png or not shouldn't really matter in the long run because they still look better than the way jpgs look in the thumbnails. Also, reverting a senior admin is not the best idea. Talk to the reverter next time. You are not an exception to the rules. --Psyライダー 17:51, 10 December 2010 (UTC)


You deleted it for being unused, yet it it used here. --SnorlaxMonster 14:52, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

Sorry for bumping in but I think that was a mistake because someone already uploaded its png version. So, Psy might have thought that the user must have replaced it in the article as well but he didn't. Here's its png version by the way. ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 17:00, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
Takharii uploaded a png version and tagged the jpg for deletion. It was natural that I figured that she would have replaced it or was on her way to replace it. Whoops --Psyライダー 17:51, 10 December 2010 (UTC)








Isn't it illegal to block someone from their own property? - unsigned comment from Arilegolego (talkcontribs)

First of all, I respond better to people's wishes when I'm treated like an equal and not yelled at. Second, if you don't want it, you are free to archive it if you ask me nicely. Third, I don't care if it's stupid, the welcome provides information for any user, new or old. Fourth, some people don't have it, like myself and Ht, because we registered before it existed and learned by trial and error, not by the template you have. Fifth, yes it is, however we'd like for talk page comments to be there, even if it is the welcome template, just for for a record. --P S Yライダー 17:48, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, I didn't see your comment on Bulbapedia when I posted this. But anyway, how can I archive it? And believe me, I have learned more from error on Bulba than that template. Arilegolego 17:52, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
It's quite alright. I can do it for you, here. --P S Yライダー 17:53, 27 December 2010 (UTC)


Hey Psy, can you hide my revision? Actually, I was trying to remove the duplicate revision and was gonna keep TC's version but I mistakenly clicked on revert (suppose to click on hide though). Since you're Sr, you might have power to delete mine one too. So, if it's possible, delete the extra duplicates and keep the original one. Thanks ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 18:40, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

Done. --P S Yライダー 18:43, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
Thanks again ;) ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 18:49, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
No problem~ --P S Yライダー 18:54, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
