Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, Shinka!
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!

I've noticed you've uploaded several images for Bulbapedia, please check the title and summary of other similar images before uploading so you can get an idea on what to do in future, also were Bruno and Agatha the confirmed trainers?--BigDocFan (talk) 14:04, 7 July 2022 (UTC)

Will do. And, no, neither Agatha nor Bruno are mentioned by name, and they kinda are shadowed, but, in my opinion, Gengar's Trainer in that movie can't not be Agatha: she's an short old lady, with a cane, a dress and the same hairstyle. Onix's Trainer looks like Bruno and is facing Agatha, so I think it would be safe to assume that he is Bruno. If there is any way I could send you a shot of them in the movie, please inform me. For the moment, however, I will edit Fissure and Hyper Beam's pages, but not mention Bruno nor Agatha by name, just "Trainer". Shinka (talk) 18:51, 7 July 2022 (UTC)
Actually, I need some help adding the images to other pages. It just creates this gray block with text in it, "Error creating thumbnail: /bin/bash: /usr/bin/convert: No such file or directory. Error code: 127". Did I upload the images wrong? Or can't I add images in other pages? Shinka (talk) 19:10, 7 July 2022 (UTC)
Just noticed it myself, not sure what is going on there, also can you make sure images are 1280x720 or 640x480 as that is our preferred sized unless the image is cropped--BigDocFan (talk) 19:29, 8 July 2022 (UTC)
I will keep this in mind, but I don't know if I can change the ones I have already uploaded. Thanks! Shinka (talk) 19:33, 8 July 2022 (UTC)
Also, please do not upload images from previews. They'll likely be upgraded anyway once the episode itself airs. And the images you uploaded of Cynthia's Pokémon won't be put to use until the episode has aired, meaning the versions you've uploaded may not end up seeing much usage. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 22:58, 12 August 2022 (UTC)

New Images

Thanks for uploading images from today's episode, can't help but feel the quality isn't that good if I am honest, what is the source of your images?--BigDocFan (talk) 21:00, 2 September 2022 (UTC)

I screenshot these images from a Portuguese-subbed version of the episode. The quality of the video itself is pretty good, so the reason why it has this quality drop is due to the upload...? I don't really know. I can try to upload images from the English sub later, if you want. Shinka (talk) 21:19, 2 September 2022 (UTC)
On close examination of your images, I see that there is a border going down the right handside of the images, images with subs can be a bit limiting, especially if the subs are visible over the best possible image--BigDocFan (talk) 23:10, 2 September 2022 (UTC)
Now that you've said it, I see the darker border. I would never have noticed myself. I'll update the images. Also, just to be clear, the subs weren't in the way this time. When they are, I do not even try to upload the image. Shinka (talk) 23:23, 2 September 2022 (UTC)
Myself and Finnish are currently upgrading the images so you don't need to, thanks for your understanding.--BigDocFan (talk) 23:36, 2 September 2022 (UTC)
Okay. It seems that the darker border appears in every screenshot I take, don't know exactly why. If I try to crop the image, I ruin the 1280x720 size, so I think it's better if I avoid uploading images until I solve this. Sorry if I caused too much of a inconvenience. Shinka (talk) 23:38, 2 September 2022 (UTC)


When creating upgrading new images, please remember to add categories, for example you can do [[Category:Golem]]--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 22:44, 6 August 2023 (UTC)

Whoops, I jumped the gun I see, my bad.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 22:45, 6 August 2023 (UTC)
Reminder of this with your new head image uploads. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:00, 8 August 2023 (UTC)

New images

Just letting you know for future reference, images don't have to be 1280x720 any more, we can have them 1920x1080--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 13:48, 7 August 2023 (UTC)

Oh, okay, thanks for letting me know :) Is there any sort of preference? Shinka (talk) 00:25, 8 August 2023 (UTC)
Generally higher resolution is better therefore 1920x1080 is preferred, but only up to what was broadcast, you shouldn't upload upscaled images. Downscaled images are still permitted, 1280x720 images are therefore still permitted but the important thing with downscaled resolutions is that the aspect ratio (16:9 for episodes DP121 and after) is maintained. 4iamking 11:02, 8 August 2023 (UTC)
If a 1920 image exceeds the 2MG limit, a good way of sorting it out is to compress the image, is the website I use.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 21:33, 6 September 2023 (UTC)
Oh, didn't know that, thanks! Shinka (talk) 02:12, 7 September 2023 (UTC)
Looking at your latest images, is it me or am I seeing a slight line going down the right hand side?--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 23:04, 12 October 2023 (UTC)
It is a line, I noticed it too not long after uploading the files. Fortunately, I didn't upload too many. I chose not to revert the files back because I thought it would be better to just upload a lineless file. I'm currently downloading the episode and hoping it doesn't have the line so I can upload the proper file. Sorry for the inconvenience. Shinka (talk) 23:48, 12 October 2023 (UTC)
Reverted the files back for the time being Shinka (talk) 23:57, 12 October 2023 (UTC)
Uploaded a version of Ash Torkoal.png from the video I have, how does the quality look?--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 00:22, 13 October 2023 (UTC)
I think it's great! Shinka (talk) 01:57, 13 October 2023 (UTC)

Move images

I personally enjoy uploading new images about moves used in the anime. Can I request that, whenever a new episode comes out, that you'd leave the new move images from them for me to upload? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 23:57, 20 October 2023 (UTC)

Sure, no problem, man! Shinka (talk) 00:00, 21 October 2023 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Appreciated. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 00:02, 21 October 2023 (UTC)


Just a polite reminder that when uploading new versions of existing images to update the categories to reflect the new image.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 09:33, 16 March 2024 (UTC)
