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, S2daam!

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!

Crunch image

The file can be moved. I've wanted to fix up these move images for ages. I can get the admins to help me. Don't worry about it ;) たかはり 10:53, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

One more thing:

Use this in your summaries for the maps as well: {{Regionmap|Kanoko Town|Isshu|BW}} Thanks. Jellotalk 21:27, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Could you also add in another frame to the beginning and set it to 0ms, this is so people without apng compatibility can atleast see where the the indicator is pointing. Right now the first frame appears like a blank isshu map. Thanks. Jellotalk 23:09, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

While they do let us use their images, that doesn't mean to upload one of their watermarked images. Especially one that has "" on them. That is their image and we're not going to steal it. Thank you. --Psyライダー 19:36, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I knew, to be honest once again my bad eyesight made me not realise this, sorry.. --S2daam 20:14, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

BW screenshot size

Would you mind re-uploading the screenshots for BW to match the standard size of: 256x192? Yours are a little bit above that. Thanks. Jellotalk 03:43, 6 December 2010 (UTC)


Read the Main Page.--immewnitythemew 16:37, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

Done so. Yeah, for some reason didn't think there was a size limit on logo's --S2daam 16:48, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

Anime images

The categories are already incorporated in the template, no need to add them. ht14 20:19, 31 December 2010 (UTC)


I've sent you a PM on the forums, might want to check it. :D Jellotalk 19:37, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, can't reply on the forums, but Wow, I'd love that. I'll help as best as I can. Thanks for the opportunity :) --S2daam 20:02, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
Great. We're currently on Gen IV, so it's Spr b g4 ###.png to Spr b 4d ###.png, the d standing for diamond and pearl (since that's where most of the back sprites are from). If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Thanks for helping! Jellotalk 20:20, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
Make sure you don't leave any redirects behind, you can uncheck that option that says "Leave a redirect behind" when you're moving stuff. Jellotalk 20:26, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Bronzor sprite

It is a beta sprite, from Pokémon Diamond and Pearl beta. So it can't be deleted. Masatoshitalk 20:15, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Ah, Ok :D Thanks for the heads up. --S2daam 20:16, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Gen V sprites

Hey, first of all, welcome aboard! Second, we're doing per Generations, and we're currently going for Generation IV sprites, so Jello, me and others are refraining from doing them yet, so it'd be great if you do so, we'll tell you when we start, alright? :P Masatoshitalk 20:49, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

So shall I stop moving then? And just be redoing the tags? --S2daam 20:52, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
Generation V sprites at least, you can tag them, though. Masatoshitalk 20:56, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
Anything with a g4 still in its name, please feel free to move (I think it's mostly the shiny sprites that need to be done now). Jellotalk 21:05, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Kuchiyose No Jutsu!

Daaaamm, if you have some time then kindly help us out and edit the summaries for all the massive load of *goodies*. I'm at my limit now, it would be nice if you help us out since most of the staff is not available at the moment. Thank you ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 18:10, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Sure, love to help :D --S2daam 18:13, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Here are few things that you have to take care of:

  • Edit all the summaries including their names, categories etc properly.
  • Rename the files if it's being used anywhere on the sites (pedia, archives or news).
  • Create the missing/red-linked categories for the Pokemon who have been revealed.
  • Add "delete" or "move" on the stuff that you want us to delete/move.
That's all for now, if you need any help then please feel free to ask. Thanks again ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 18:33, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks a bunch for helping out! :D Jellotalk 22:23, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Just making sure

Thanks for the work you're doing at helping us, but I must tell you, just in case. Please don't move any of the files to the new names, since Bulbapedia is in a lockdown and we can't edit it, the Pokémon artwork won't be shown in the infobox, and we can't allow that in this moment. Thank you again for your help and I look forward to hear more about you. This is not a warning by any chance, just a reminder to avoid eventual movings. Masatoshitalk 01:30, 8 March 2011 (UTC)


The dropbox is over flowing! SoS!!!(Full of TCG cards)—★Pika3323 13:25, 27 March 2011 (UTC)


The point of my scan list was so that User:Zedbill had a list of what to actually scan and replace with his own scans. Based on the vast size differences between the uploads you are doing, it doesn't seem like you are scanning them yourself. Taking them from other sites is against the rules, and you shouldn't be doing that. Unless you can provide high quality scans that you do yourself, don't bother adding them. MaverickNate 22:10, 3 April 2011 (UTC)


Since you recently uploaded newer versions of Cheren and Bianca without the background shadows, I thought I'd point out that you missed a few on Cheren. There are still shadows around his hair. ;) Jo The Marten 15:30, 16 May 2012 (UTC)

Steven artwork

Thank you for helping remove Lance's cape on the artwork but you forgot to remove the part between his left arm. Thanks! --Renzo493 17:28, April 17, 2012 (UTC)

  • Don't know how I missed that... redone it :) And no problem! --S2daam 17:51, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

A favor to ask

Hey S2daam, can you transparentize Brycen from here and then upload it on top of the current Brycen image? I'd do it, but I'm not good at transparentizing... thanks! =) ht14 21:07, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Wait, never mind. You beat me to it. Thanks! ht14 21:11, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Hey There

hey i saw the higher upload for Pikachu 2, think you can upload higher quality versions of all the other images i uploaded???--LHakaLH (talk) 01:52, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

If I can get round to it I will.. although I just tried to find higher quality versions of some of them but couldn't find them... I'll try some time though --S2daam (talk) 16:46, 7 February 2013 (UTC)


Hey there S2daam, it's me again! hey listen when you have the time can you help me find HQ versions of the images I tagged as low quality? Thanks!--LHakaLH (talk) 15:37, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

Like the last ones, unfortunately I just can't find any higher quality ones! I'll keep looking though... --S2daam (talk) 16:13, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

Links to Bulbapedia

When linking to Bulbapedia articles on game systems, please remember to add bp| to the link. For example {{bp|Nintendo DSi XL}} should be used to link to the Nintendo DSi XL page. G50 16:55, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

I'm aware and have been doing it but must have made an error during the XL files, my mistake --S2daam (talk) 16:57, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

Changing X and Y boxart

Hi there S2daam,

Can you change the box art of Pokemon X and Y to have an E rating from ESRB, since the official box art have an E rating. Thanks Agent5514 (talk) 11:44, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

Do you have a source for this? --S2daam (talk) 12:46, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

Yes I do, on the offical X and Y websites,, and the trailers from Pokemon's official Youtube channel. Agent5514 (talk) 12:57, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

Ok, just wanted to be 100% beforehand. Doing so now --S2daam (talk) 13:50, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

Press release images

You always manage to beat me on those. You must have a faster download speed or something. We need to work together in future: do you have an AIM, Skype, or other kind of instant messenger I could use to communicate with you? --SnorlaxMonster 13:26, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
