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, 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.

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)
