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, Werdnae!

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!

Regarding your uploads

Hey, don't forget to categorize your Pokés. ht14 02:45, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Oops, sorry. I'm new to this whole animated image thing. I'll remember to add all the categories in future. Werdnae (talk) 03:05, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Just Wondering

Does it really matter whether it's the chapter cover for Pokémon Adventures? If not... then, I would think that whatever fits most well with the title/story of the chapter should be up there. ht14 00:56, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

CP said the title page would be prefered. It prevents too major spoilers in the infobox and makes the images more consistent. Werdnae (talk) 01:07, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
Well, seeing as CP's in charge, that's fine then. ht14 01:17, 26 October 2010 (UTC)


Hey Werd, I was thinking...I know how upload the images for moves and junk and all but, don't you think it'd be best if we uplaod moves from other chapters of Pokespe (as in RS, FRLG, DP etc..) because some moves are used quite frquently and I feel it's kind of a waste to not show how different the move is during the course of the series Ataro 22:03, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
