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.

* Request deletion of images through the {{template|delete}} template. Ensure the said images on Bulbapedia and/or Bulbanews are properly fixed or removed before doing this.
* Fix the images on the TCG such that they go in the proper category ([[:Category:TCG fair use images|this category]] is for non-card images, whereas [[:Category:Fair use card images|this]] is for the cards only) by use of the correct licensing ([[:Template:i-Fairuse-tcg-noncard|non-card]] vs. [[:Template:i-Fairuse-tcg|this]])

(doImages notof uploadPokémon anywith Farfetch'dnon-alphanumeric orcharacters Ho-Oh(excluding imageshyphens, duebut toincluding non-alphanumericspaces) characters,in fortheir others,name should removehave the non-alphanumericoffending character(s) omitted in question)the filename. For further details, see the [[Archives:Manual of style#TCG scans|manual of style]].

* Some Diamond and Pearl back sprites have pixel issues. Re-upload damaged sprites with proper versions
* Update every image (depicting a move found in [[:Category:Moves (game)|this category]]) summary and replace the content with {{template|mv}}, the usage is <code><nowiki>{{mv|Pokémon|move|generation (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7)|type=type of the move|target=Target Pokémon|ani=whether the image is animated in png}}</nowiki></code>.
** The template will add the proper categories, so if you see a manually-added Category (like [[:Category:Moves (game)]], both Pokémon, user and target), delete it.
** Check your browser before saying the image is not animated. If [[File:Ani001OD.png]] is not animated on your browser, no other animated pngs will be animated on your browser. Browsers that can show animated png files include Mozilla Firefox, SeaMonkey, and Opera.
==Junior admins==
*[[:Category:Candidates for moving|Move]] images (do not forget to remove the {{template|move}} template) and ensure the images are properly fixed on Bulbapedia and/or Bulbanews). Where relevant, also delete the redirected images (usually sprite redirects are exceptions).
====Ongoing tasks====
* Moving images to standard file naming notation, from .PNG to .png, etc.
:Using proper file names
:Removing non-alphanumeric characters
*[[:Category:Candidates for deletion|Delete]] images: Make sure the images are unused, especially images that switch as they are considered unused (e.g. [[:File:492Shaymin-Land.png]])
====Ongoing tasks====
*Moving files to proper filenames, the same as Junior Admins.
*Deleting unused files (mostly .jpgs)
