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.

Bulbagarden Archives logo.png
Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, Ataro!

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!

Please read the checklist when you upload media files, and be sure to tag and categorize all images. If you're confused about the requirements for uploading files, have a look at this guide. --ht14 02:57, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Don't forget to categorize. ht14 23:13
On the bottom of most files, there is a thing that is labeled as Category:X, X being any category relevant to the file. This helps in organizing files. ht14 23:27, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
In order to get someone to delete something, please put the delete tag onto the page somewhere. MaverickNate 02:31, 28 July 2010 (UTC)
Just another reminder... categorize them... Pokémon names, Trainers, etc. ht14 23:13, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Hey Ataro

After transparentizing, don't forget to remove the {{Transparency needed}} template in the edit summary. This also goes for the bad image template, etc. ht14 22:03, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Sorry was actually waiting for it to change before doing it just to see if I made a mistake or not...I was doing other stuff too so I kinda forgot Ataro 23:20, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
It's understandable I guess. ht14 01:03, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

Anime screenshots

Are you cropping them or what? They look weird sized like that. Please don't crop them. Jellotalk 17:57, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Yes Ma'am Ataro 17:58, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Summary sections

Don't forget to use the {{m}} template in the anime move images; same function is used as in BP. ht14 04:22, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Regarding the {{delete}} template

Sorry for bothering you again, but... if there are active admins out there that noticed your uploads and whatnot, it's not needed to put out the delete template... it's implied. Just saying. ht14 23:57, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

oh, last time I was told to add them to the images...ok then.. Ataro 23:59, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
Oh? By whom, may I ask? And what exactly do you mean by that? ht14 00:00, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
Oh pfft, add them. I'm not a mind-reader so I can't go hunt for the unused .jpgs now can I? D: Jellotalk 00:02, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
Eh, I guess it's up to you... but seriously, what do you mean by that? Add the delete template? ht14 00:03, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
getting confused here guys @_@ and it was Nate who told me to add the Delete tag in order to get someone to delete them. he wan't 100% specific so I assumed to add them to all of the images. Ataro 00:05, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
That's correct. I said that it's not really necessary if there's a clear-cut pattern, but Jello is saying that you should add it anyway. In any case, it's up to you. ht14 00:07, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
SO sorry to spam crowd up your user talk space, but I guess this could work. If I'm around more than Jello is, then don't put it if there's a pattern. Otherwise, if it's any other admin or other images in which I would not be able to guess are replacements to others, do put it. ht14 00:09, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
k'then Ataro 00:10, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
Redirects are ALWAYS delinked and deleted, so, add the delete tag to the redirect whenever you move them. MaverickNate 21:15, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
I tried that once but the tag wouldn't show up....Ataro 21:35, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Chapter covers

Since you're the one uploading most of the covers, thought I'd ask you. Do you want the images to be flipped or retain their original position as it appears in the Japanese version? Also, since we're an English speaking wiki, we can't really have Japanese text in the covers. Jellotalk 18:54, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

I'd rather keep the to keep it in its original design..and I'll remove the text from now on Ataro 19:01, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

the delete tag

Should be placed AFTER the image has been replaced and not when the page is currently still using the image. Jellotalk 21:41, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Ash and co. pic

I just wanted to say that the image you uploaded of Ash and his recent friends was way better than the previous one that someone else uploaded. Pattyman 01:01, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Pokémon Adventures cover file names

The names for the files for this manga's covers are pretty unorganized, so I have few suggestions if they should be moved: Japanese: PKMNSPE01.png, PkmnSpe01.png English: For Viz Media: PkmnAdv01 VM.png, PKMNADV01 VM.png, VM PKMNADV01.png For Chuang Yi: PKMNADV01 CY.png, PkmnAdv01, CY PKMNADV01.png Other languages: PKMNSPE01 Korean.png, Chinese PKMNADVSPE.png, PkmnAdv01 Greek.png --Renzo493 07:27 November 6, 2010 (UTC)

Professor Hastings art

The artwork of Professor Hastings you uploaded was already uploaded as File:Professor_Hastings_GS.png. Yours is bigger, though. Could you reupload your art to the old title, and delete the one you uploaded as a new file? BTW, you misspelled Guardian in the file description. --AndyPKMN 00:43, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

You see this is what annoys me..some people should add the damn thing to the article or add it to the category so stuff like this won't happen sigh...I'll replace..Ataro 01:48, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
On second thought, scratch that Ataro 01:49, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
There's a thing called searching. Type in Hastings and you get all his art. There's also the category, Art from Pokémon Ranger which just happened to have the image that I just deleted. Please don't be so rude next time. Jellotalk 01:58, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Regarding filenames

It's preferred that the title of the Pokémon anime images is Pokémon name anime.png, not Anime.png. It's not set in stone (nor will it ever I suppose), but it would be nice for that consistency, thanks. ht14 21:39, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

oh sorry, I'm usually just adding bigger pics so I didn't notice Ataro 21:44, 11 November 2010 (UTC)


Hi Ataro.

I find, as do some other administrators I've talked to, that you're often coming off as rude when you talk to people on their talk pages. For example: here you leave a meaningless and (potentially, depending on your POV) rude section title and continue to simply tell a new user that he's doing it wrong. As a junior administrator, you need to focus on explaining why it's wrong (i.e. "We use png format pictures because..."). I've noticed you doing similar things on Bulbapedia as well. Please, if you're going to go about saying that people aren't doing things right, at least be constructive with it and help them improve: the role of any Bulbawiki staff member is not to flaunt power, but to help others and help improve the website.

Regards, —darklordtrom 04:38, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Hi ataro.
Just reminding you that this is not tolerated here. This holds true especially since you are a junior admin here, as you are supposed to be the role models for other users here. There are many other nicer ways of handling that situation. I'm giving you a 1-week block for this, and I hope you understand that. If you do continue this though, expect a longer block. I'm sorry, there's been a misunderstanding on that... I'll remove the block. Sorry about that. ht14 02:19, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Dialkia statue image

Is it true that the statue in Pokémon Adventures is called Dialkia? I heard of Dialga as the name is similar. Pattyman 04:17, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Knock knock

Hey Ataro, I've a question for you. Should I replace the images with the exact same angle but higher quality? The thing is that I've a lot of images which I can't decide whether to upload or not. Some of them are of the exact same angle as the one's that are already uploaded but higher in size (eg: I've BW011 header in crystal clear HD (1.21mb in size) and the one you uploaded is of 1015KB in size) and so on. Should I replace these kind of images or not? Thanks ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 09:23, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Edit summaries

There has been quite a bit of issues with certain edit summaries of yours. Typically, you shouldn't direct them at specific people. If you have problems with what others do, it's a lot better to tell them on talk pages, or an IM program. A lot of others' edit summaries are just idle playthings such as singing, or poem reciting. People find direct comments in Edit summaries to be rude. I hope you understand this and change. Now, I'm giving you a cool down block so that everyone has a fair break. Don't take this in a bad way, but if you have any issues at all, feel free to e-mail me, and please do! MaverickNate 04:34, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Genderless sprites

I've been trying to upload sprites for Blaziken, Roserade and Heracross that don't count as male or female e.g. Spr 5b 257.png, I have done this 3 times but it just never appears anywhere T.Smithurst 17:36, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

Great work

Good job for assisting me on the trainer templates. Keep up the good work. Pattyman 18:17, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Vileplume image

Whoever uploaded the jpg image of the Vileplume on Valencia Island was actually wrong with the filename, which caused some confusion here and there. Pattyman 22:21, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

Manga Pokémon as characters

Careful when choosing licensing for manga. Pokémon should not be under the character artwork category. The same applies for anime so I don't see why we should make an exception for manga, unless the Pokémon is really notable. You need to go around and fix the licensing tags since they're cluttering the character artwork category. Thanks. Jellotalk 07:08, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

Upload requests

Better qualities of this, this, and this, if possible. Depends on whether Pattyman gets to it first. I might be missing some though, so just skim through Emerald to see if there are any pngs that should and could be uploaded in better resolutions. ht14 03:19, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Hey ataro...

Umm... if possible, instead of working on the manga and other projects in mind, can you help out with the sprites? We need the sprites to be properly categorized and moved. You can move the shiny sprites, and if you want, just fix up the backsprite templates. Whichever do not belong in this category has to be fixed. The sprites for Generation III are currently Ruby and Sapphire, and Generation V is currently Black and White. Don't touch Generation IV at the moment, still unsure about where they belong to... in case you need a crash course on it, backsprite is {{backsprite|###|Pokémon name|all/shiny|gen #|game set}}. Obviously, it's all for regular, and shiny for shiny sprites. Any questions, please ask before starting, thanks. ht14 04:27, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, it's mainly due to me going to bed last night. I kinda got lost on what happened after I got up Ataro 04:35, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
So... what do you need help on? ht14 04:41, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
Is it ok if you could work from the end? ht14 05:00, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
I don't mind Ataro 05:03, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
Wait, when you said "from the end" do you mean, the last one to the most recent? Ataro 05:08, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
You're doing fine for now, but I meant 386-->110, or whatever. ht14 05:10, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Your anime screenshots

I couldn't help but notice that a lot of the recent ones you uploaded have a noticeable black edge on the right side of them. Can you please remove them from the images and reupload them? --Kenji-girl 22:28, 31 January 2011 (UTC)



I'm just a person....I make mistakes >_< Ataro 10:25, 6 February 2011 (UTC)


I just noticed that you uploaded a Spearow that belonged to Professor Oak. Can you also upload its evolution (as Oak's page is missing a Fearow image)? If you were going to do it, good. Pattyman 15:43, 21 February 2011 (UTC)


Hey, is this EToP or Poke Special? ht14 00:40, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

Never mind... be careful please.... thanks. ht14 00:43, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
Whoops, changed one thing and forgot the other. Sorry bout that Ataro 00:53, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
It's fine; just as Nate said though, please be wary when making uploads. ht14 01:05, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

If you're still online

And since you seem to be able to get HD images as well, if you get the chance, can you upload over the images Checkmate uploaded? Thank you. --P S Yライダー 18:46, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

If you can, can you replace Myohmaya's uploads with better images? Thank you so much. --P S Yライダー 16:34, 25 March 2011 (UTC)


Out of the Junior Administrator and into the Administrator. Whether it's manga images or uploading fantastic HD images, you're always helping the Archives. Keep it up. --P S Yライダー 21:15, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Congradulations on your promotion. Pattyman 01:08, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

manga scans

Where do you get those clear manga images from (since you're a master at them)? Pattyman 22:17, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

I use the Raws for the manga...Ataro 01:43, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

Don't scare me like that...Uh..I don't have AIM (I have Windows Messenger and Skype though) But I'll get it if it's necessary Ataro 17:30, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, |D. We just use it to communicate with each other amongst staff and you can choose whether you want to continue using it, it's just easier for, that's all. --P S Yライダー 17:33, 14 May 2011 (UTC)


Audino controlling device? If I am not mistaking, it was a device connected to a GPS system so that the gang can track down the Audino. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 10:24, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Ability images

Those last three images that you moved, I forgot about putting the word Adventures in the file names. Thanks for fixing them. Pattyman 04:29, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

About your deletion

The image you deleted is not from a official stock site, however in the manual of style there is a line that says that "Stock artwork should be made by official sources. If no such artwork is available yet, artwork by non-official sources may be used.", I consider your deletion a very rude action towards me (who was acting in good faith and trying to help bulbapedia and enhance its visual presentation hence Genesect infobox uses a sprite) and I won't discuss any further, I won't bring up guidelines and permissions that will result in your blatant action to be rolled back just because the power of the adminship got over your own head. Thanks for repelling me just like a Max Repel do ingame. I won't bring any further issues, regards. Richard ba 05:40, 28 July 2011 (UTC)


Shouldn't LillisBonner9 be blocked too. He/she created an illegal webpage on this site. Also, when I placed the delete tag on the 2nd vandalizer's image, I didn't want to recreate the page. Pattyman 02:39, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Never mind, you already accomplished the task of blocking the user. Pattyman 02:42, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Dare da image

Can you delete File:Dare da EP010 first six.png, so that File:WTP EP010 first six.png can be moved to that name? Since we both moved the image at the same time, File:Dare da EP010 first six.png is just redirecting to File:WTP EP010 first six.png. Cheers. Vuvuzela2010 21:42, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

Never mind, I see that you noticed it first. Vuvuzela2010 21:43, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

Could you move the "Figy Berries.png" picture to "Figy Berry anime.png" or "Figy Berries anime.png" please. I think that title is a little better than the one now, and it would match the others. Thanks! --Pokemaster97 18:20, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Manga help

Hey ataro, do you mind scanning the page in the Emerald arc that contains the Artisan Cave? Initial image is here, but it needs to be flipped and the words removed. As for where exactly it's located, it's mentioned in the article. Thanks! ht14 19:44, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

If you don't mind my bothering you again... if possible, there's a need of pics of the Pokégear in Adventures if you don't mind. I guess Gold, Silver, and Crystal's is good enough, though Red also borrowed one from Erika, so it's your call. Thanks again!! ht14 01:23, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Wallace's Pokémon

Since you usually remove the word "Adventures" for nicknamed Pokémon, you could do that for Wallace's, too. |) u |( e ® 21:52, 21 May 2012 (UTC)


Before we engage in another edit war, let's talk:

Ruby's scar was colored in many different tones by the fandom, as well as the statue of Kanto holders and Silver; a colored image of Paka and Uji is needed for their article, since the misunderstanding was all their scarfs's colors. This is something that I, and other people, consider relevant. Once a bigger scan is uploaded, I'd like to upload some of the colored pictures, as long as they are intact (like the holders being freed of petrification). You now have the Sunshine Cherrim, can I use the other images? |) u |( e ® 05:58, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

...Meh, alright. Ataro 08:31, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

Baker Chris

I only saw the baker's name in the unofficial translation of Pokémon Adventures which was why I didn't put Chris in her file name. Pattyman (talk) 02:29, 27 June 2012 (UTC)


I found an alternative image of Layla. Which one would be better? Layla G50 11:23, 20 September 2012 (UTC)


Does the images of the Pokémon Adventures titles necessarily need the title card over the one that shows the featured Pokémon or the main plot, like File:PS100.png, I wanted to upload the image of Gold and Bugsy being attacked by Unown, like the one you uploaded earlier, with the dialogue blank (I don't even know why everybody does that), but the current image is considered "Better" because it shows the title card, so what I should do? Upload the new image anyway or let it the way it is?--Igor Castro Chucre (talk) 14:24, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

The ones with title cards are preferred. As for the dialogue blanking, if a manga is in it's original Japanese version, the Japanese text is to be blanked. If a certain piece of text can't be blanked without ruining the image, it stays. If it's an "official" English translation, the image goes unchanged. Dunno why, I didn't make the rule. Ataro (talk) 14:41, 25 October 2012 (UTC)


{{i-Fairuse-screenshot-game}} is for a screenshot in a game, whereas {{i-Fairuse-game}} is for game artwork. Cheers~ ht14 00:42, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Meganium's Leaf attack

The image which is now Magical Leaf, the Japanese kanji in the page said that it was using Leaf Cutter, the Japanese name of Razor Leaf. Pattyman (talk) 00:30, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

Where, exactly? I only see Magical Leaf. Ataro (talk) 00:37, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

Red and Blue Kyurem Deletion

I saw that two of my files were deleted because they were duplicate files. I'm fine with them being deleted, but the only reason I uploaded them was because I couldn't find the existing versions of those files. PopcornInsomniac (talk) 18:00, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

Alright, then. Ataro (talk) 19:31, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
I noticed one pic you uploaded is over 2 megabytes. I have had pics that I needed to compress before I uploaded them because they exceeded the limit. Do you have to be an admin to upload files over 2 MB, or is there a way around that? --Hmdwgf (talk) 03:18, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
Don't think you need to be an admin, but there is a way around it. I just upload them to an image hosting site like Imageshack and upload it from the url. Ataro (talk) 16:16, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

Cameron's Lucario

The image I uploaded definitely does not contain a more awkward pose, doesn't have part of Lucario's face cut off, and better advocates Lucario's personality. Could you please tell me what makes you think the current one is better? I am Mikoro (wanna talk?) 02:41, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

Winona's anime artwork

Google images? I can't find the original forum, but here are two other links: I was gonna replace the artwork in the infobox for winona because someone said it was incomplete, but then I realized that the game artwork is actually used instead of the anime artwork.Raykyogrou0 (talk) 07:55, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

It was SeanWheeler, thanks! But it was already discussed on their talk page. --Cinday123 (talk) 00:35, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Grant's picture

Why replace a perfectly good picture with a worse one just because of the outfit change? Viola's picture is also of her new outfit, and does that matter - NO.. Plus, Grant's picture does show his personality a lot more than the one you want to upload..--Omojuzeforever (talk) 11:27, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

First of all, I didn't even know you changed the image. And now it's back to the previous one. Second, no. If all we have is them in a different outfit, then we use that shot. If they later appear in their proper outfit, then it gets changed to that. Ataro (talk) 13:38, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Quick heads-up

Hey ataro, we have the templates for {{chap}} and {{adv}}, so feel free to use them. ht14 13:39, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Wait, ignore that. I was looking at the wrong file... ht14 13:40, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Mega Volt header image

I wanted to ask you if the picture we're using for Mega V should still be the header image, considering it's not used for the opening sequence anymore. Besides the scene with the Mega Stones at the very beginning, the only Mega stuff that it features is the battle scene against Diantha and Mega Gardevoir, none of them being... screenshotable. The only time we've used a variant as a header picture is for Battle Frontier, but even then it's a change on the silhouettes, while in this case we would be using a whole scene that's not on the sequence anymore. --Gabo 2oo (talk) 13:51, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Pokémon Adventures Italian manga

Hi, I noticed that the Italian covers of the manga were yet to be uploaded, so I just did it, I wanted to ask if I have named them correctly, as well as if I have edited the file pages correctly. I used the English and French cover as a reference, I hope I didn't mess things up. If the files have no problem could you please add the link to Bulbapedia's pages since editing is currently restricted? Thanks in advice--CiaobyDany (talk) 18:40, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Electro Ball

Another Electro Ball picture for Pikachu please?--JasonL (talk) 01:57, 14 December 2014 (UTC)


I don't know what happened. I just created my fist page, it was a section for a walkthrough. after that i checked my contributions and the number of edits was reset to zero...Why did it happen and can you fix it.

Never mind its fixed. Rwithik (talk) 07:06, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Pokémon with new ORAS artwork

If Rayquaza's new artwork doesn't count, why do the Hoenn and Sinnoh starters' artwork get overwritten for ORAS and Pt? The official sites still use the RS and DP artwork. --Abcboy (talk) 04:19, 24 February 2015 (UTC)


I'm quite aware that the photos didn't have the best quality, but I don't think they were that blurry. I only added them there to show Vuivui and Malva's Fennekin's evolution forms in the manga, and so someone could hopefully find a better image to replace them later on. - unsigned comment from Handmaiden 101 (talkcontribs)

Why are those images deleted?

File:Red and Green Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire chapter.PNG and File:Mega Saur and Mega Blasty.PNG. What is wrong with them?--Magicknight94 (talk) 01:22, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

Image removal

You removed my image of Sapphire's Gallade in Pokémon Adventures. May I ask why you did this? I personally saw nothing wrong with the image. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:15, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure I left a comment when I deleted it. If I didn't, here it is: please do not upload any images of any manga unless its a scanned image. The image you uploaded was taken from a camera, which are not allowed. Due to the loss of my regular computer, it is extremely hard to edit Bulbapedia or any site I regularly visit, so I'm not as active as I want to be. Ataro (talk) 14:52, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
1) It WAS a scan! If the quality made it look like it was a photo, then sorry about that. 2) I just thought that since there are much worse quality manga scans (from newly released X&Y rounds for example), I thought that this would be OK until a better quality image was found. Seems like I was mistaken this time... --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:34, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Inappropriate user

Could you please check out User talk:Luckytama. They have been changing and uploading some inappropriate stuff recently.--Rahl (talk) 15:33, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

Hoenn Maps

Hi, I didn't really know who to come to but as you're an active member of staff I came to you. Basically I'd posted on the forums probably last year about having all the in-game Hoenn maps from ORAS ready to be uploaded, but wanted to know if they were to be uploaded over the current files, at new filenames or if the current files would be moved before uploading the new ones at the original name. Just thought I'd bring this back up as I still have all the maps on my laptop and would like to get rid of them, plus with Sun & Moon coming up thought I'd ask about getting this done soon before things get really busy around here. Thanks for your time! ---- samm :) 21:38, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

Images for Poke Problem episode 7

I found a video on Nicovideo where it shows the Poke Problem for episode 7 of the Sun and Moon anime. Here's the video:

It won't let me upload photos.



So I've noticed you have been ignoring your talk page on Bulbapedia so I hoping that maybe you would respond to me here.--Rahl (talk) 02:19, 5 April 2017 (UTC)

The third and fourth variant of Pose

I found the variants with Shiron and Mallow's Steenee.

THIRD VARIANT: [episode 17] starts at 21:59. FOURTH VARIANT: [episode 18] starts at 22:09.

Colored Pictures

May I ask why those images in particular where reverted?--Rahl (talk) 16:47, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

They're tiny. While a colored image is nicer, it loses the effect if the image is so much smaller than the main image. Ataro (talk) 16:51, 3 April 2018 (UTC)
That's what I figured but wanted to make sure. Thanks.--Rahl (talk) 17:05, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

Suspected Spambot

Hello. I just wanted to alert you to a possible spambot talk page: Lava Spire (talk) 14:40, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

Never mind, AbcBoy has taken care of the situation. Lava Spire (talk) 19:51, 15 May 2020 (UTC)


I don't know who should I ask but you're an admin so I'll ask you. Looking at all minisprites from gen 8, Lycanroc's regular form seems off. Here I found that it should look a little different, do you know how to fix that?--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 15:08, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
