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.

Couple of notes

You are doing a fantastic job with the summaries on your images for the moves in the games. But, there are a few things that you probably don't know about. Each image needs categories. That is a big list to go through, but I'll tell you the ones you need. Category:Moves (game)...and each Pokémon has one. all you have to do, is when you upload the images, place [[Category:Moves (game)]] and [[Category:<Attacking Pokémon Name>]] and [[Category:<Defending Pokémon Name>]]. Furthermore, as the licensing, please choose "screenshot from a Pokémon game" rather than just "Screenshot". It is much more descriptive and helps find images later. This is a lot of info, and I want you to respond to this message with any questions or comments you have in order to show me if you understand this or not. Thanks!

Thanks for the info. I'm new at this so I'll be sure to fix that very soon--AOS 22:50, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
Quick question: does the Pokémon attacking goes first, or the other way around? Or it doesn't matter who goes first?--AOS 23:30, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
It does not matter. Just so that they are all on there. Maverick Nate 00:34, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
Don't forget Category:Moves (game) Maverick Nate 21:20, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
It does it by itself when you choose the Licensing, right?--AOS 22:10, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
nevermind.. my mistake, I'll fix the ones that need it and the ones in the future--AOS 22:11, 19 July 2009 (UTC)


You're doing good in uploading move screenshots! Just to inform you, we have this template for the images of move used in the games. To use, just input {{subst:Mv|<user>|<move>|<opponent>|<generation/games (1,2,3,4,dp,pt,hs)>}} for example, {{subst:Mv|Absol|Sucker Punch|Gastly|pt}}. It can be useful.

Tc26 wrote that here like 2 days ago.. but Maverick Nate erased that, "we don't like that template"..--AOS 18:14, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
You can use it if you want... Maverick Nate 21:18, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Making life easy

You can put the categories and template links (i.e. {{bp}}) in the upload form. Also, {{game}} links directly to the Bulbapedia articles about the games and works just as the one on the 'pedia does. —darklordtrom 03:03, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Bag item sprites

Please reupload these with size 24x24 pixels and (if you didn't before) a transparent background. —darklordtrom 21:37, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

Done -- AOS 02:29, 14 September 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll now draw your attention to the naming system we use. "File:Bag [Item Name] Sprite.png". If the same item exists in a different game, use "File:Bag [Item Name] HGSS Sprite.png". All the items you've uploaded have been moved, but moving files is an admin-only right. If you make a mistake uploading tag the file with {{move}} or notify me. Cheers. —darklordtrom 02:39, 14 September 2009 (UTC)
Got it. What about the Summary and the Categories?? -- AOS 03:37, 14 September 2009 (UTC)
This one should be a good example coz TTE did it. You can figure it out from the coding, right? —darklordtrom 07:21, 14 September 2009 (UTC)
Got it. Thanks. -- AOS 16:41, 14 September 2009 (UTC)
