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.

As seeing some are just way too big or small, I am resizing them (and uploading some). But some, like Articuno's are bigger than 32x32 (resized Rayquaza to 64x67, where actual sprite is 61x67). What about size of such big sprites? [[User:Marked +-+-+|Marked +-+-+]] 17:00, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, SnorlaxMonster!

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!

Here's how it works. 001.png. File:001.png. Got it? ht14 00:54, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

OK, thanks. --SnorlaxMonster 01:55, 15 December 2009 (UTC)


Hey SM, I am here to explain my previous edit. Bulba archives encourages to upload images with the png extensions instead of jpgs for the quality reason and it is also necessary to upload a transparent version (no whitish background) of an image. As you can see the major difference between these two images.

File:PokemonRanger Character 02.jpg

PokemonRanger Character 02.png
Now, tell me isn't there a big difference in both images? Is the quality and transparency of both images looks same? ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 13:54, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, I didn't mean that I didn't understand the reason. I meant that you should put it in the delete template. I understand why you did it. --SnorlaxMonster 06:35, 24 February 2010 (UTC)
Oh, my bad. I'll take care this thing next time. Anyway, thanks for the help. --♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 09:33, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

Route 10 HGSS

No, talk to Gabo 2oo about correcting the image of Route 10. You can see an item (Poké Ball) in the image, please remove the item (TM Rock Polish) soon? --Rodney 23:42, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Well, you could have replied on the talk page of Route 10 HGSS, but here is good too. I suggest you go talk to Gabo 2oo about it. I also fixed your writing to how I interpreted it. If you disagree, change it back.--SnorlaxMonster 00:59, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Screenshots with walking Pokémon

If it's got Celebi as the walking Pokémon, there's a 99.9% chance you should not be using it. It's always best to take your own screenshots rather than "stealing" from other sites. —darklordtrom 08:09, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

They're all from PokéWiki. As far as I know, the purpose of Encyclopaediae Pokémonis is that we can use information without it being "stealing". --SnorlaxMonster 08:13, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
Also, I checked (after you messaged me) and couldn't find that picture anywhere on Serebii, especially here. --SnorlaxMonster 08:46, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
Wrong page. The thing is, if it has a Celebi, it's from his site. It's his watermark. If another EP member takes it, we still can't take it from them. Serebii doesn't like Bulbapedia using images from his site, and we like it less. —darklordtrom 08:51, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Personal images

These should be in this category only. Personal images do not get other categories. —darklordtrom 12:17, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

Alright sorry about the questiomarks. Didn't know they were "Bad.

Just make sure you replace all the locations where the image is used on the page in the future when remaining/replacing images. Koolboyman 16:58, 24 August 2010 (UTC)


...I thought Janobii would be a more appropriate translation for ジャノビー. Anyway, you don't save and reupload; we move it. Thanks, Kevzo8 12:38, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

I'm going by what Bulbanews gives me. Also, I reuploaded because you deleted it while I was saving it, which messed everything up. Then I had to try and fix the problems that the non-edit conflict caused. --SnorlaxMonster 12:42, 11 September 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for all the hard work you've done on the Archives. Welcome aboard the new team. I trust that you will use your new superpower well and help keep this place organized. There's always stuff to do on the Archives and we depend on people like you to keep things smooth! (I hope you'll be more active here now too). Jellotalk 09:27, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Congratulations SM, keep it up. :) ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 11:14, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Relic castle has christmas lights

I want to fix it but don't know the frame rate, would you know?—★Pika3323 11:18, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm not very experienced in APNGs. I don't really know how to fix it. --SnorlaxMonster 11:20, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

Naming conventions

How should I upload the TCGO files?--immewnitythemew 18:54, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

The Templates

When are those templates going to be moved? Pattyman 16:10, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

I'll show them to the other staff this weekend and see what they think. --SnorlaxMonster 16:24, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
Fine by me. Pattyman 16:32, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

JP Crystal Jynx sprite

That gonna be the hardest one (since it looks I need to do it the legit way)... I just considered that I would had to hatch the Odd Egg until I would get Shiny Smoochum... since normally chance for shiny is just too low to get it fast (last time I got shiny that way was... ~1 month ago, and the second-to-last was so long ago that I don't remember the date, and actually it was first with 1 to 8192 chance), and breeding for shiny Smoochum is impossible due to that no Pokémon before RSE had any Pokémon that were in Human-like and another group (was considering chain breeding from Red Gyarados... as Generation II is capable of breeding for shiny). Also, wtf is with counter on talk of main page? It says 290 out of 289 for GS Back sprites (both shiny and non-shiny) Marked +-+-+ 14:33, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

You could always try the Shiny Ditto glitch. Or you could just hack one in (easiest way). --SnorlaxMonster 15:15, 8 September 2011 (UTC)
Hack in? Impossible, I can't find codes (for shiny) for JP Crystal, only English, and I don't think if there is stuff like Advance Map, but for Generation II in Japanese. I don't know if it's possible to trade Pokémon from English eg. Yellow to Japanese Crystal (as international trade was implemented in Generation III). Also, acidentally uploaded file under wrong name and it was impossible to move file as there was redirect there ._. (and I know that you are Senior Administrator) Marked +-+-+ 15:39, 8 September 2011 (UTC).

Wait. lolwut I just could use Jynx from English Crystal to trade it to Yellow, then to JP Crystal (since I managed to link Yellow to JP Crystal... it's Japanese, due to everything in Japanese and party being other than English games). YEEEES. Marked +-+-+ 16:06, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

FUUUU doesn't work (the party of JP Crystal appears glitchy in Yellow and Crystal itself can't connect). And the Pokémon Comunnication Center is screwed. ._. Marked +-+-+ 16:22, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Oh. I just remember that I have Japanese Gold (or Silver? It's translated to Trademarked... I think, it could be Hepburn) and I am capable of 100% shiny encounter stuff. Now just gonna trade it to Crystal. Marked +-+-+ 12:33, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

That's great! Yeah, I knew about my promotion. I was talking to PsychicRider on AIM at the time anyway (the person who promoted me). Carmen handled the image you uploaded under the wrong name. I don't think inter-language trading is possible in Gens I and II either (although your testing seemed to prove that). Also, I think the Shiny Ditto glitch would have saved a bit of time if you have Japanese R/B/Y, but hacking is easier of course. --SnorlaxMonster 04:51, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

Although a bit late...

Thanks for getting the two templates (mva and aba ones) approved. I appreciate it. For the two parter moves such as Aipom being hit by Flash, how do I handle those? I did start on some of them. Pattyman 15:34, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

Well, for that one, the name should be File:Roserade Flash Aipom.png (no pun intended). Even if it is a Pokémon being hit by an attack, focus on the user. For images with multiple moves being used, just put another template on for each move. --SnorlaxMonster 15:38, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
Except that that image wasn't used (I checked and it wasn't in a switch on Ash's Aipom or Gardenia's page) so I deleted it. --SnorlaxMonster 15:40, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
On the right track. Pattyman 16:00, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
The image of Sudowoodo using Flamethrower after using Mimic wasn't Brock's. In fact, it was a wild Sudowoodo using it from the Johto saga. I took a screenshot from the episode before uploading it. Pattyman 16:15, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

animated sprites

What's the policy on animated sprites? Are we doing those for DPPt/HGSS or BW? There seems to be some people uploading the Gen IV animations - how are those getting created? --Jdthebud 07:35, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

All sprites with the prefix "Spr" should be animated (if they are animated). Pure number filenames like File:001.png are not. I don't know how it is done (you're better off asking someone doing it that question), but they must all be uploaded as animated PNG files. --SnorlaxMonster 12:12, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

Fire Spin/Flamethrower

Should the filename of this image stay as it is or can it be moved to Flamethrower? There wasn't really any evidence of it using Fire Spin. Pattyman 19:05, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, it should be moved. Unless someone checks the original and it was Fire Spin (based on this, I've already checked the dub), it should be Flamethrower. --SnorlaxMonster 01:10, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

Linking TCG/TFG images

We don't link them... err... rather, it's optional but not necessary. You could surf around most of the TCG images and you'll see that those are not linked. ht14 18:58, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

There isn't really any reason not to link them. TCG isn't linked because, well, it would be a huge effort to do it. Ideally, both would just use summary templates (which I intended to make once). --SnorlaxMonster 13:31, 1 January 2012 (UTC)
Eh, I see it as redundant then... in any case, once the MediaWiki glitches and whatnot are fixed, then it really isn't necessary since the page where the file is linked to is already seen. ht14 21:02, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Game screenshots

I am going to need some help in this category with filling in missing summaries and moving some of the images to their necessary file names (the ones that are used) as I won't be able to do them all on my own. Pattyman 18:28, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

MD sprites

As seeing some are just way too big or small, I am resizing them (and uploading some). But some, like Articuno's are bigger than 32x32 (resized Rayquaza to 64x67, where actual sprite is 61x67). What about size of such big sprites? Marked +-+-+ 17:00, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
