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, BigDocFan!
Bulbagarden Archives bulb.png

By creating your account you are now able to upload images to help Bulbapedia and Bulbanews. Before you jump in, take a look at these helpful tips:

  • Uploaded images must meet several requirements. Please see the upload form and/or manual of style before you upload a new image.
  • All images need categories and license tags. Save time and fill them out as you upload. There are many different licenses - be sure to pick the best fit.
  • Use meaningful filenames. Make them descriptive so that searchers can find your images easily.
  • Personal images are no longer allowed. Any personal images found will be deleted on sight.
  • If you don't have any images to submit, you can still help out.
  • If you have any more questions, see the FAQ or ask a staff member.
Thank you, and have a good time uploading here!

File names

Hi there, welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives. As a general note, please read through the uploading checklist before you upload. In particular, please remember to only use alphanumeric characters (so no parentheses or other special characters) in file names. Thanks! --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 14:16, 4 June 2017 (UTC)

Thanks, first day on the job here so slowly getting used to it, trial and error really--BigDocFan (talk) 14:23, 4 June 2017 (UTC)

Stolen images

Please note that stealing images from other fan sites is not permitted, and the offending image has been deleted. In the future, do not upload images taken from other fan sites without permission or you may be blocked from uploading files to the Archives. --Abcboy (talk) 08:13, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

Understood, from now on will wait until youtube uploads an episode with WTP--BigDocFan (talk) 08:22, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

Image quality

Alright, first of all, I have no idea where the source of your images come from, but I'd advise picking a different one. The images that you have been uploading are, quite honestly, less than satisfactory. The one I just deleted was incredibly blurry, for example. Secondly, please make sure to tag and categorize all images. If you're confused about the requirements for uploading files, please check this guide. Ataro (talk) 23:10, 28 June 2017 (UTC)

I specifically asked you tag and categorize the images you upload. Please actually read the things people post on your talk pages. Ataro (talk) 00:20, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

Same goes with Sudowoodo's image (see Talk: Clawmark Hill) Marshtompert (talk) 21:18, 6 July 2017 (UTC)


Given complaints about the quality of my images, I have decided to leave the screenshots to others and stick to what I do best, good luck with finding WTP screenshots--BigDocFan (talk) 19:16, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

Image size limit

Please note that the maximum image size permitted on the Archives is 1280x1280 pixels. Make sure to resize all uploads to be less than 1280 pixels in before uploading them. Thanks! --Abcboy (talk) 17:55, 14 July 2017 (UTC)


I've noticed that when uploading new images, you've neglected to add in the appropriate categories. I'd like you to pay closer attention to them in the future. Same also applies to uploading new versions of already existing images: sometimes you may have to remove a category or add a new one when you do so. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 05:00, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

Please tag and categorize your images. Ataro (talk) 11:44, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
Please, don't forget to add categories when uploading new pictures, or edit the current categories if necessary when uploading new versions of images. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 06:39, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
Hey, this is your final warning to categorize your images. Ignoring this warning may warrant further disciplinary action. ht14 17:50, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

Image quality

Please note that just because your updated version of a picture is bigger than the original, doesn't necessarily mean that its quality is better. For example, the Pokéathlon pictures you've just uploaded are rather blurry and have black edges. There are sources for better quality images, trust me. If you can't do better than this, please leave it to people who can get better quality images than you can. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:03, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

Sadly that number of videos open to me are limited--BigDocFan (talk) 18:40, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
I actually would know a site where you could get high quality screenshots, but I'm not sure if Bulbapedia would allow me to give links to sites like that, so I'm unfortunately not going to name it here and now. Anyway, please avoid uploading blurry pictures, even if it's to fix size or something. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:53, 6 June 2018 (UTC)
Would be nice to find this site if possible--BigDocFan (talk) 19:03, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

File names

Please make sure to use only alphanumeric characters in filenames as stated on the upload checklist. Your recent uploads of "File:Lisa (anime).png" and "Fiboth le:Nidoran♀ Nidoran♂ M20.png" both contained other characters. --Abcboy (talk) 19:35, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

I do apologize, there are some areas I'm still not familiar with and with Lisa, the name was already taken so tried an alternative.--BigDocFan (talk) 19:51, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

Recent images

Please stop constantly uploading new versions of existing images simply because they're from more recently-aired episodes. Whether it's a recent shot or not is irrelevant. All we need is a shot of the Pokemon that looks good. That's it. The only real need for a recent shot is if it's a Pokemon that has had a large gap between appearances. Ataro (talk) 23:23, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Image quality again

There's no need to rush uploading images from an episode that only aired hours ago. Please have patience and wait until the high quality version becomes available. It shouldn't take too long. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 13:19, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

Userspace images

The images you've been uploading for use in your User: space conflict with our policy against personal images. Please ensure that your uploads are content that are relevant to the mainspace. - Chosen of Mana 22:17, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

Edit summaries

Could you please stop uploading images so that you don't have to place the categories in the summary section? Just copy an entire picture description, summary, template, and all, and then edit it to match what you want. And do not select a template from the selection, as it will already be there. There should be some upload descriptions that should show how it's done. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:13, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Did you not understand what I said? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 13:09, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Remember to categorize images

Hi there! You forgot to categorize the images you uploaded earlier today. We have categories for each species of Pokémon, and Ash's Pikachu and Dawn's Piplup have their own separate categories. Please keep that in mind when uploading images in the future. Also, I don't know where you get your images from, but they're quite blurry. It's one thing to upload blurry images when we don't have an existing file, but replacing a high quality image with a blurry one is inexcusable. --Mikuri (talk) 19:00, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Now this is what is confusing me, FinnishPokéFan92 is telling me to not do something yet you're saying the complete opposite.--BigDocFan (talk) 19:39, 7 November 2018 (UTC)


You're neglecting adding categories to your pictures again... --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:59, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Future episode headers

I gain access to a textless screenshot of the next episode on Mondays. Just so that you know. I'm probably going to replace your version of SM141.png when that happens tomorrow. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:39, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

Fair enough, I merely uploaded it as a temporary image--BigDocFan (talk) 15:50, 22 September 2019 (UTC)


Neither Torracat nor Incineroar was mentioned to activate Blaze. And it doesn't seem like that was Blaze anyway to me. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:05, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

Ah, I assumed it was Blaze with new animation--BigDocFan (talk) 12:06, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

Updating images

As Ataro has said to you before, there's no need to update a Pokemon's image every time it appears in a new episode. It's unnecessary. The only reason you would update the image if there has been a significant gap between appearances.--Force Fire (talk) 16:56, 3 February 2020 (UTC)

My apologies, I thought the new one was better--BigDocFan (talk) 17:46, 3 February 2020 (UTC)


Hi, do you have Lance's Gyarados pictures from today's episode?Especially that of Lance with his Pokémon, that scene where Charizard and Leon are together. I was wanting to have it in good quality. --Hikaru Wazana (talk) 11:55, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

I'm busy with images for Leon's Charizard but I'll add that to my list--BigDocFan (talk) 11:56, 9 February 2020 (UTC)
Thank you. :D --Hikaru Wazana (talk) 12:00, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

World Championship

Hi, I was watching the past episodes of the anime and I noticed something.


Is this the official logo of the world championship in anime? I ask why it is very similar to the type logo of the competition that Nintendo has held. I saw that there is a colorful version in the stadium when Lance and Leon do battle. If so, is it worth it to upload it, or is it too early for that?----Hikaru Wazana (talk) 21:54, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi Hello. I took some screenshots of the preview for the next episode. I was wondering if they are in the ideal pattern to put on the site, did you take a look to see if they are ok? Just look, the rest, I do it myself. Wazana (talk) 11:52, 15 March 2020 (UTC)
My advice, whilst they look good, wait until the episode airs before uploading them. See if there are better images--BigDocFan (talk) 11:56, 15 March 2020 (UTC)
Later, I usually have access to the episode in high definition, so I'll wait then. I was going to use these images on user pages that I'm putting together, so it would take a while for them to actually go to the mainspace. Good anyway, thanks.----Hikaru Wazana (talk) 12:35, 15 March 2020 (UTC)

Ash Party Picture

Why did you revert the image? I know it's not the best shot, but it's the only one that shows off his entire team. Isn't it better to show them all in their current state over one that is incomplete?--Rahl (talk) 13:46, 14 March 2020 (UTC)

If I'm honest, it was really a good pictures (then again there aren't a lot of images featuring Ash's whole team) but more importantly, Munchlax was visible and Ash didn't own it--BigDocFan (talk) 13:53, 14 March 2020 (UTC)
True, but I think people can deduce that by seeing there isn't a Munchlax under his ownership. If not an issue with you I'd like to change it back as I think it's better to show the whole team instead of only a part of it.--Rahl (talk) 16:35, 14 March 2020 (UTC)
I've asked Chosen to have a look at the matter and see what he says, mods advice always goes well--BigDocFan (talk) 17:19, 14 March 2020 (UTC)

Hi, again.


Hi Hello. Did you happen to have this image without the embedded letters? I've been looking through my files and on the websites I follow and I haven't found any videos without subtitles. I wanted to put it on the page I'm setting up.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 15:29, 06 June 2020 (UTC)
You want the exact image but without the subtitles, confirm?--BigDocFan (talk) 15:38, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
Yes. I mean, if it's not going to give you trouble.If you can, I'll be very grateful.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 15:44, 06 June 2020 (UTC)
Had trouble getting an exact image with Goh's mouth closed but this was the best I could get. (talk) 15:46, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

It's excellent that way, thank you very much.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 15:51, 06 June 2020 (UTC)

[3]Hi, did you happen to have this image here in better resolution?It happens near the end of the episode.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 00:13, 17 August 2020 (UTC)


[4] Are these two images good for me to host for the water competition article? Or is it better to expect better quality?--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 14:50, 02 August 2020 (UTC)

I'd wait for better quality videos, good images but needs quality--BigDocFan (talk) 15:04, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

Image request

Great work with all the refreshed images and desciptions you and FinnishPokeFan92 are adding to the system.

I was hoping to add them myself, but the quality is questionable at best. Would you mind adding:

  • Team Rocket's disguise in JN047
  • Team Rocket's Casteliacone van disguise in JN048

Regards, PardescanSlowbro (talk) 23:32, 18 December 2020 (UTC)

A little help

[5] Hi, how would you help me? I uploaded this image in the wrong format. How do I delete it?--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 02:13, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Source of images

Where do you get all those anime screens? I'm interested in finding one form episode AG123:Rhapsody In Drew with Bulbasaur being under the effect of Torment.--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 16:17, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

I download videos from nyaa, you need something like Utorrent to be able to download it, they have a variety of episodes available.--BigDocFan (talk) 16:22, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
Hope you don't mind, I went ahead and uploaded an image for you--BigDocFan (talk) 18:05, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
Thank you VERY MUCH.--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 19:20, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

Image Request

If I may, could you please upload for me an image of Sceptile wearing Lock-On while it is using Leaf Blade from episode "AG178:Battling the Enemy Within!"?--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 14:24, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

Sure, what title do you want to give the image?--BigDocFan (talk) 15:04, 26 April 2021 (UTC)
Hmm. I think it could be "Ash Sceptile Lock-On effect".--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 15:16, 26 April 2021 (UTC)
Thank you very much!--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 18:09, 26 April 2021 (UTC)


I'm not sure if it is rude to ask for images again, but could you, please, add image of Arbok's rivaly with Raticate from "EP047:A Chansey Operation"?--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 20:38, 14 July 2021 (UTC)

Good thing the EP164 images were already uploaded because my video is from the dub, not the Japanese section. I've spoken to Finnish about it, he suggests waiting to talk to admin before adding the facts from the Pokedex video--BigDocFan (talk) 21:08, 14 July 2021 (UTC)

file correction

The file, Wulfric Mega Abomasnow Ice Shard.png, shows Wulfric's Abomasnow using Ice Shard in its normal form, not as Mega Abomasnow. Please correct this when you can. Thanks!Ctc1017 (talk) 22:54, 3 November 2021 (UTC)

Corrected, sorry about that--BigDocFan (talk) 10:11, 4 November 2021 (UTC)

Recent image

A heads up. More recent ≠ better image. --Pikablu (talk) 14:00, 4 December 2021 (UTC)

Links and Categories

I'm sorry, but what exactly do you meant by "links" and "categories". I believed that putting the bp and {{ was the "link" in the summary. Could you explain it so I don't do it wrong next time? HygorBH (talk) 22:00, 26 August 2022 (UTC)

If you have a look at your latest images, you'll see that I have made edits. You'll see what Categories are there, when it links to Pokemon pages such as Garchomp (Pokémon), p before the {{ is better, bp is for pages like Cynthia's Garchomp. Also, please use your own talk page as that is where we started the conversation.--BigDocFan (talk) 22:06, 26 August 2022 (UTC)

Issue with a type of episode images

Hi. I've noticed that a lot of episodes from the original series and Ruby & Sapphire currently use screenshots from a particular source, which can be recognized from the relatively inferior quality and the fact that for some reason the black borders appear to be excessively thiner and nuanced (examples are AG012, AG099, and AG133), especially when compared to screenshots taken from what I think are a much better source (examples are AG005, AG070, and AG192). In my opinion, then, it would be better if most of the screenshots taken form aforementioned source got replaced. What do you think?--Ricbolog1310 (talk) 20:00, 1 September 2022 (UTC)

I see what you mean, the trouble is not all images are uploaded by the same user and not every user uses the same video source.--BigDocFan (talk) 20:17, 1 September 2022 (UTC)
True, even though I noticed that generally (so it doesn't apply 100%, but still) most of the screenshots from the first source were uploaded by FinnishPokéFan92 (nothing againist him, I just think the source isn't that great), while those uploaded by you tend to be from the second one.--Ricbolog1310 (talk) 20:53, 1 September 2022 (UTC)
It seems FinnishPokéFan92 acknowledged my point and uploaded new versions of the episode screenshots I mentioned above, this time from a better source. I hope I'm not too demanding, but I would like to know if you or FinnishPokéFan92 plan to eventually upgrade the other episodes as well or you're fine with the current versions. One reason I'm asking this is that I also work for Pokémon Central Wiki and for the most part we use the epsiode screenshots from Bulbapedia.--Ricbolog1310 (talk) 13:30, 4 September 2022 (UTC)

Regarding the new ones you sent me, the images above the Spinda have the same name you want me to change them to so I assume you made a mistake there, regarding the ones you want deleted, sadly as a junior admin, I lack the power to delete images.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 20:26, 14 December 2022 (UTC)
That was fast. Thanks! Sorry, I meant move files with shiny Furfrou to same name but with "-" between Furfrou and form name. That's all.--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 20:38, 14 December 2022 (UTC)
All sorted--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 21:40, 14 December 2022 (UTC)
Thanks, thanks, thanks!--Team Rocket Grunt (talk) 22:37, 14 December 2022 (UTC)

Image Titles

I wanted to do that anyway but a while ago someone else in my other edits, told me not to capitalize each word so I did that instead, I'll definitely do that next time (CuteSylveon42 (talk) 01:38, 23 February 2023 (UTC))

The reason that I uploaded another was because the image was getting either glitched or was lagging, and so Uploading a new would fix the problem (CuteSylveon42 (talk) 11:34, 14 April 2023 (UTC))

Up for deletion?

Sorry! I am still new to wiki and I ended up sending an email instead. I will copy and paste what I said. Again, sorry.

Hello, I saw the change to the file page of Ash's Dream Badges up for deletion.

I want to ask why because I wanted to replace the image in this page

Because the current image has some of the badges cut off and it is not in higher quality. I thought it would be alright because I saw the file history and see someone else did a similar thing, which is a full view of the badges.

Can you please tell me what is wrong with the image I uploaded so I can correct it?- unsigned comment from Primer24 (talkcontribs)

The main reason I've asked for it to be deleted is we have an existing image with a better title, I'm not seeing much difference in quality with the existing image.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 14:55, 3 March 2023 (UTC)

Then, if I re-upload the image with the same title, would it be accepted? The image size is larger than the current one and gives a full view of all the badges compared to the ones cut off in the current one.Primer24 (talk) 15:20, 3 March 2023 (UTC)


I will if someone hasn't done it yet, I just want to update the image- unsigned comment from CuteSylveon42 (talkcontribs)

As I posted it on your talk page, it is probably best to keep the conversation in one place.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 11:08, 24 March 2023 (UTC)

Hey, I know that you want good quality images but can you not upload yours as soon as I uploaded mine (Especially new files), I want to extend my archive list and you probably have lots more than me from other pokemon series. Almost all my uploads are overwritten by yours if it hasn't yet. I'm trying to get the Best quality I can (CuteSylveon42 (talk) 23:27, 22 April 2023 (UTC))

Thank you very much -- Tomarzig (talk) 06:19, 23 August 2023 (UTC)

All done.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 08:59, 23 August 2023 (UTC)

New image request

Hi can I ask you for help in uploading new images of Serena's Delphox and Clemont's Diggersby with their trainers in their current form please.--BlueSparkles (talk) 19:44, 26 August 2023 (UTC)

From what I can recall, I don't think we had a good shot of them together in what would be considered a strong bond moment.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 20:01, 26 August 2023 (UTC)
I gets that there isn't a lot because they only made on appearances in their current form and I know you told me the ones I upload weren't the best but there were the only ones I could find them with their Trainers.--BlueSparkles (talk) 20:52, 26 August 2023 (UTC)


Hey, I was wondering why the head image for SM021 was reverted to a prior upload. You left no comment, so I got confused. Shinka (talk) 04:02, 27 August 2023 (UTC)

Should have explained, your upload kind of gives away what happens to Stoutland--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 09:40, 27 August 2023 (UTC)
Oh, I got it. Will keep this in mind for any future uploads, thanks! :) Shinka (talk) 16:38, 27 August 2023 (UTC)


Also, I've been wondering from where you get your screenshots in such high quality, mainly from before the SM series. I'd be glad if you could share it with me. Shinka (talk) 18:06, 27 August 2023 (UTC)

I use a site called nyaa where I can download the episodes, you can find SM episodes [6] here--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 18:32, 27 August 2023 (UTC)


The colors are way blown out on the version of the image you reverted to, a lot of detail, for example the fact that it's raining, is completely washed out. I don't know where this screenshot is from, but it's worse quality than the version on Pokemon TV and the Japanese raws I have (the version I uploaded). Minibug (talk) 16:59, 3 September 2023 (UTC)

the quality is good, but the shot is not the exact same as in the previous two versions, though the difference is very small and not overly important.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 17:32, 3 September 2023 (UTC)

Horizons eyecatches

The eyecatches for the Horizons series are named as "HZ eyecatch 1" and further versions as "HZ eyecatch 1 V3". It makes more sense for them to be named after the characters (e.g. "HZ eyecatch Liko V3" etc), since it's clear that HZ will have eyecatches for any character who plays a major role in the episode, not just the main cast. This will be useful when searching and also for organizing. I hope you can look into it. → SuperPikaPool13 10:43, 8 September 2023 (UTC)

Additionally, I think it's clear that the eyecatches will be about the Rising Volt Tacklers, Explorers, or game characters, all for which we have the English names already, so there's no need to worry about moving the pages again later. → SuperPikaPool13 12:20, 9 September 2023 (UTC)
Any update about this? → PikaTepig999 14:21, 14 September 2023 (UTC)
I have checked for an update, I'll get back to you when I have one.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 14:50, 14 September 2023 (UTC)

Title card image renaming

Thank you for helping with renaming the movie logos. As I was categorizing the title cards, I've found that a lot of them are named randomly. I thought I'd ask you here if you could help rename those files, instead of placing move templates on those files as it'll reduce the number of edits needed due to adding and removing the template, and all of the edits required will also be in one place (also it would get done faster XD). Specifically, the files are: (not ordered)

  • File:Titlecard.png → EP051 Title Card
  • File:EP083 title card.png → EP083 Title Card Error
  • File:EP065 Error.png → EP065 Title Card Error
  • File:EP064 Error 2.png → EP064 Title Card Error
  • File:EP018 English title card.png → EP018 Title Card
  • File:EP176 Error.png → EP176 Title Card Error
  • File:EP178 Error.png → EP178 Title Card Error
  • File:EP181 Error.png → EP181 Title Card Error
  • File:EP255 wrong title.png → EP155 Title Card Error
  • File:EP255 right title.png → EP255 Title Card
  • File:Master Quest Title Card.png → EP273 Title Card
  • File:Original series Japan title card.png → EP250 Title Card JP
  • File:Hoenntitlecard.png → AG004 Title Card
  • File:Hoenn Title Card 2.png → AG098 Title Card
  • File:AG130 Title Error.png → AG130 Title Card Error
  • File:AG137 Error.png → AG137 Title Card Error
  • File:AG152 original title.png → AG152 Preview Card JP
  • File:AG152 corrected title.png → AG152 Title Card JP
  • File:Battle Frontier Title Card.png → AG158 Title Card
  • File:Diamond Pearl Second Title Card.png → DP121 Title Card
  • File:DP Title Card.png → DP004 Title Card
  • File:DP009 Error.png → DP009 Title Card Error
  • File:DP044 title.png → DP044 Title Card
  • File:DP121 new title card.png → DP121 Title Card JP
  • File:BW038 Error.png → BW038 Title Card Error
  • File:Title Card XY.png → XY006 Title Card
  • File:XY014 Title Card.png → XY014 Title Card JP
  • File:Title Card XY Ash.png → XY Title Card Ash
    • Similarly for all the other Title Card XY <char>.png files
  • File:Title Card JN dub.png → JN001 Title Card
  • File:Title Card JN Netflix.png → JN Netflix Card
  • File:Title Card JN.png → JN002 Title Card JP
  • File:Title Card JN preview.png → JN002 Preview Card JP
  • File:Title Card JN041 Part 1.png → JN041 Title Card Part 1
  • File:Title Card JN041 Part 2.png → JN041 Title Card Part 2

The naming system I have suggested will be useful when searching for the images, also for ordering them on the category page. Plus a system in place is better than the current arbitrary names.
Additionally, File:JN016 title card.png, File:JN042 title card.png and even the JN041 ones above contain the JP title for the episode, but since there is not English equivalent uploaded yet, I think that leaving them without a "JP" suffix in the file name also works since it leaves the possibility of it being updated with the English title card. What are your thoughts?
Unfortunately, as the names are so different, I'm not sure if the process can be automated. If you can help with this, it'd be greatly appreciated. → PikaTepig999 01:57, 11 September 2023 (UTC)

Sorry for the delay in responding and moving the images, moved them as requested.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 12:38, 11 September 2023 (UTC)
Thank you so much for helping out with this. I've changed the links on Bulbapedia to point to the new file names. → PikaTepig999 17:41, 12 September 2023 (UTC)
You're welcome, if you ever need any images moved, I'm happy to help if I'm online.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 18:01, 12 September 2023 (UTC)

(resetting indent) Hello again, could you help move File:Black—Victini and Reshiram + White—Victini and Zekrom.png to M14 Title screens.png for naming consistency? I personally feel that instead of a collage with both version title screens, there should be two different files. I've spoken to the uploader, and they want to keep it as one image, so I'd appreciate if you or another admin could reach a consensus on this to prevent any future edit wars.
Additionally, the same user has uploaded new versions of M02 - M05 title screens with a 640x480 resolution. To the best of my knowledge, those movies were released in a 16:9 aspect ratio, and also in HD, so there should be no reason for the title screens to be 4:3 SD. I hope that if this information is correct, you'll support reverting the files back to the HD versions. Cheers, → PikaTepig999 03:09, 22 September 2023 (UTC)

Hi, could you also help move File:Obsidian Fieldlands.png to File:Fieldlands Camp LA.png and File:Full Battle M20.png to File:M20 Corey Vs Neesha.png, to macth these file names with the naming conventions for other similar files? Thanks, → PikaTepig999 06:54, 28 September 2023 (UTC)
All done.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 08:45, 28 September 2023 (UTC)
Thank you! I actually found these other files in need of renaming later, so I apologise for not including them in a single message. The first four are just to fit into the naming convention for similar images, but the next four are just more descriptive names, so maybe you might like to use better fitting names. Once again, thank you for helping out with these whenever you have time, no rush.

I've moved the images as requested, asked my fellow admin about the title screens.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 09:37, 28 September 2023 (UTC)
Thank you! I hate to be the bearer of bad news when you've been so helpful to me, but due to my adding ".png" in the above suggestion, "PTC AG077 answer" now has ".png.png". Sorry for increasing the workload. → PikaTepig999 09:53, 28 September 2023 (UTC)
Whoops, my bad, corrected--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 10:33, 28 September 2023 (UTC)

Season 4 title card

Hi, with the Title card page having been recently mainspaced, I think it would be better to display a different example for the variant used during Johto League Champions, as the current one was in fact uploaded to show that the season's logo (normally present) was mistakenly left out. I ask you for help, in the case you have access to a decent quality source for the dubbed version of those episodes.--Ricbolog1310 (talk) 09:02, 18 September 2023 (UTC)

I have uploaded EP180 Title Card.png to meet your request.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 09:09, 18 September 2023 (UTC)
Thank you.--Ricbolog1310 (talk) 09:27, 18 September 2023 (UTC)


Hi, could you rename the file "Dada Bullet Seed" to "Zarude Bullet Seed"? I explained my reasoning on that file's talk page, but I don't think that Zarude is actually Dada, as you can see it is bulkier and has vines wrapped around its shoulders. Shinka (talk) 21:35, 27 September 2023 (UTC)

Some more rename requests

Hi, can you help with the following rename requests?

  • File:Ultra Space Wilds USUM.png → Ultra Warp Ride USUM (since this image only shows the Ultra Warp Ride, and there are distinct images for each world of the Ultra Space Wilds)
  • File:Ultra Space.png → Ultra Deep Sea SM (this image shows Ultra Space in SM, which was later renamed to Ultra Deep Sea in USUM)
  • File:SM Prerelease Poké Ride Tauros.png → Poké Ride Tauros Charge (has been recreated in game, no longer pre-release)
  • File:SM Prerelease Poké Ride Stoutland.png → Poké Ride Stoutland Search
  • File:SM Prerelease Poké Ride Lapras.png → Poké Ride Lapras Paddle
  • File:SM Prerelease Poké Ride Charizard.png → Poké Ride Charizard Glide
  • File:SM Prerelease Poké Ride Mudsdale.png → Poké Ride Mudsdale Gallop
  • File:SM Prerelease Poké Ride Sharpedo.png → Poké Ride Sharpedo Jet
  • File:USUM Prerelease Mantine Surf.png → Poké Ride Mantine Surf

I'm working on obtaining better images for all of them. Would appreciate your help in renaming them in the meantime. Thanks, → PikaTepig999 21:36, 4 October 2023 (UTC)

Moved all the images as requested, sadly my specialty is the anime so can't help you getting better images.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 21:55, 4 October 2023 (UTC)
No worries, I uploaded newer versions for all of the above except the Ultra Deep Sea, since it is really hard to reach that area in-game. Thanks for your help! → PikaTepig999 03:18, 5 October 2023 (UTC)

File name

Hi, could you please rename the file "Red Scyther Slash-min" I recently uploaded to "Red Scyther Slash PO"? I didn't make sure to check and edit the file's name before I uploaded, my bad. Shinka (talk) 19:11, 8 October 2023 (UTC)

Oh, sorry for asking for the same stuff again and again, but could you also rename the file "Red Zapdos Thunder Shock.png" to "Red Zapdos Thunder Shock PO.png"? I will be more attentive in this regard for future uploads. Shinka (talk) 19:22, 8 October 2023 (UTC)
No problem, I've moved the images as requested, don't hesitate to ask to move images.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 19:28, 8 October 2023 (UTC)
Sure! Thank you very much :) Shinka (talk) 19:29, 8 October 2023 (UTC)

Charmeleon's Scratch in Pokémon Origins

Hi again! As I was updating Pokémon Origins images, I've come across this moment during File 2: It's Charmeleon using Scratch. Red calls it out explicitly, and the animation looks somewhat similar to when Charmander used it in the previous episode, but it does not resemble the Scratch image that has been uploaded here ( In fact, this one looks more like Charizard's Slash ( with the white trail. Is this enough "evidence" to state Charmeleon used Slash in File 3? Or, at least, should the "Charmeleon Scratch" file be changed to match the instance where we are 100% sure it is Scratch? Shinka (talk) 23:08, 8 October 2023 (UTC)

Sorry for the delay in replying, it was late when you messaged me so I was tired to respond, the image you gave us for Charmeleon Scratch certainly looks like the one we have is wrong so feel free to upgrade it.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 08:25, 9 October 2023 (UTC)
No problems! In this case, should I also upload a "Charmeleon Slash" file? I'm aware there's no confirmation through dialogue, but the animation seems fairly similar to other instances of Slash in Origins. Shinka (talk) 14:24, 9 October 2023 (UTC)
I've thought about it a little, and it wouldn't be necessary to actually upload a new file. The "Swimmer m PO" ( has Charmeleon front and center using the move. Still, can we consider it Slash or not? Shinka (talk) 14:44, 9 October 2023 (UTC)
Personally I prefer your image of Charmeleon using Slash, we can keep the Swimmer m PO image to show a swimmer.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 15:03, 9 October 2023 (UTC)
Sure, then! Will upload the Slash file soon. Thanks for your help! Shinka (talk) 15:13, 9 October 2023 (UTC)

More file names

Hi. Sorry, once again I uploaded a file without double checking first :(. Could you please change the file "Mr Fuji past PO-min" to "Mr Fuji past PO" please? Also, I think the file "Red Mom PO" could be renamed to "Mom Origins" or "Red Mom Origins", to avoid confusion with the file "Mom PO", which is official artwork for Red's mom. Shinka (talk) 17:07, 12 October 2023 (UTC)

All sorted--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 17:50, 12 October 2023 (UTC)
Could you also rename File:Pokemon XD Logo.png to File:Pokémon XD logo Japanese.png and File:Pokémon XD logo.png to File:Pokémon XD logo English.png? I was trying to cut down on Special:GloballyUnusedFiles but there's a lot; atleast we can take care of the few obvious ones... → PikaTepig999 22:02, 12 October 2023 (UTC)
Done.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 22:19, 12 October 2023 (UTC)
Could you move File:Kyurem VS. The Sword of Justice title screen.png to File:M15 Title Screen.png to keep the naming scheme consistent with the other movie title screens? Also, what was the decision about the M14 title screen? → PikaTepig999 03:22, 30 October 2023 (UTC)
We have {{move}} so that this workload isn't put onto 1 staff member's shoulders. I ask that if you have any further move requests, to please use the best practices surrounding template use in place of making requests to a single administrator. MaverickNate 04:18, 30 October 2023 (UTC)

Regarding your recent edits

Hi, regarding various of your recent edits, I had always thought it was better to have the episode name in the image description to keep a track of which episode the image was from. Maybe the wording could be changed to something better, like XYZ as seen in EPxxx if the current wording doesn't make sense. → PikaTepig999 02:54, 2 November 2023 (UTC)

Snacksworth image

Hello, for some reason I cannot upload a new image for File:Scarlet Violet Snacksworth.png, it always ends up as the same picture as before, even though it shows the correct picture in the preview. I would like to know why this is the case, in case I wanted to upload other pictures in the future. Thank you. Kikugi (talk) 14:36, 15 December 2023 (UTC)

When members upload a new image of an existing one, it takes time before the new one is visible. If you try again in a bit, you should see your new image.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 16:52, 15 December 2023 (UTC)


I know there is another image of that name, but I thought you might be able to move it. My mistakes if you can't. BlueSparkles (talk) 12:59, 17 December 2023 (UTC)


Hi if you have the time can you delete some images that are candidates please. BlueSparkles (talk) 15:31, 7 January 2024 (UTC)

FYI Junior admins normally cannot delete files, Best is to leave the delete template on a file and then an admin who has deletion rights can do it on their time. 4iamking 15:52, 7 January 2024 (UTC)

Black bars on images

All of the pre-Sun and Moon episodes of the anime I have came from Some-Stuffs. And they all (minus a few episodes in-between the archives) have those black bars on each side. Do yours have them, too, or did you download them from somewhere else? Or is it because I'm using VLC? I just wanted to know to prevent having to cut them and drop the resolution of images. HygorBH (talk) 01:56, 9 January 2024 (UTC)

Pre Sun and Moon episodes come from a variety of sources, episodes from DP121 have no black borders--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 09:11, 9 January 2024 (UTC)

Pokemon to real world comprehensive map image

Hi, I would like to re-upload File:Pokemon-to-real-world-all-main-series.png as its pixel size is too big for a thumbnail and there's a minor fix I'd like to make. I would also like to update File:Pokemon-to-real-world.png to the insert image. Thank you! Pipcrew (talk) 21:42, 23 January 2024 (UTC)

From what I can tell, you should just be able to upload a new version over the old one, please try again and reach out if you still have any issues :) 4iamking 23:27, 23 January 2024 (UTC)
Hi again, the page says "You cannot overwrite this file." and the upload media page says "A file with this name already exists, and cannot be overwritten. If you still want to upload your file, please go back and use a new name."Pipcrew (talk) 01:58, 24 January 2024 (UTC)
Yeah you do need to be autoconfirmed to be able to overwrite images, this status is given by the system. I thought you would have met the requirements because your account being from 2010 is clearly old enough, but maybe you need a few more activities on the archives. Either way I shrunk down the image so it fits within our limits, hopefully that works for now:). 4iamking 02:11, 24 January 2024 (UTC)
Thank you very much! There was a small oversight on the original image though. The line from Japan to the Japan insert image is the wrong color. Is it ok to make the fix, or is it fine to leave it? I also have an updated image to File:Pokemon-to-real-world.png. It's a higher quality version of the Japan insert image.Pipcrew (talk) 02:16, 24 January 2024 (UTC)
I also forgot to include Hisui on the main image too. I already have it on the updated image. I apologize if it's asking too much.Pipcrew (talk) 02:21, 24 January 2024 (UTC)
If you want to update it, please do so. You can try uploading once again yourself, and if it still dont work, just post a link to the image in this discussion and someone can help you upload it (and credit you!). 4iamking 02:26, 24 January 2024 (UTC)
Thank you very much again! I was able to update the image. If possible I'd like to give credit to Jump Drive for the source of the blank maps and the idea etc.Pipcrew (talk) 02:40, 24 January 2024 (UTC)
Does Bulbapedia have a problem where images don't update properly after an update? Resizing seems to fix it on the page [[7]] but not on the image itself.Pipcrew (talk) 02:47, 24 January 2024 (UTC)

(reset indent) There might be some caching involved, thats why it may be slow to update, but you can probably clear your cache (or view on a private browser) and it should show you the latest image. 4iamking 23:20, 24 January 2024 (UTC)

It worked, Thanks!Pipcrew (talk) 08:49, 26 January 2024 (UTC)
