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, Chickasaurus!

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!

Link Templates

Similar to Bulbapedia, the Archives has a set of its own link templates. Most of them work exactly like the link templates on Bulbapedia, except for {{bp}} which is used for links that don't fall under of the any link templates present on the Archives. Please be sure you're using the appropriate link template in the summary of images you upload. Thanks, - Kogoro | Talk to me - 13:35, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Regarding your move request

The only characters allowed are A-Z, a-z, and 0-9. If you're confused about the requirements for uploading files, have a look at this guide. So in this case, no parentheses. ht14 04:12, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

3DS captures

Hi. I've been maintaining a list of images that are needed from the 3DS (core) games, and I noticed that you got a capture card and upload approval. It seems you may be focusing a bit on glitches at the moment, but I just wanted to drop off that link so you could maybe consider using your capture card to get some of those images if you find yourself in the mood. If you would find it troublesome to edit some things (like isolating decorations from a whole screenshot), I'd be happy to do what I can if you just provide me with the raw screenshots. (I don't say I'm especially skilled, just that having something is better than nothing. =P ) Thanks! Tiddlywinks (talk) 01:25, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the link, I'll consider it! :) Yes, I unfortunately have a back-list of glitch things I want to do. I notice many of those pictures are relatively easy to get, so I'll work on it soon. Thanks for the offer. Yes, I am not so good with images so I would much appreciate that. Chickasaurus (talk) 12:50, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

I got a replacement for your image.

The file, has an APNG replacement now. I am just asking your permission so I can now upload this APNG replacement. This is the APNG image: Select_glitch_animated_APNG.png

You know, .gif must be avoided. Pokéfan95 (talk) 09:38, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Actually, new users cannot upload images. Please download the APNG and upload it. Thank you! Pokéfan95 (talk) 09:58, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Deer Image+ Higher Res Early Seel Design

Chickasaurus: Looking into it, I was able to find out that the "hair" that you described was actually a part of the sprite for some reason. As you probably know, this: was the link where you got the early Seel design from. Look closely enough, and you should also be able to find the deer, and look even closer and you should be able to find the line that was supposedly "hair". Also ontop of that, I found a non-blurry version of the early Seel sprite as well as the elephant here: You might have to scroll down, but the tweet with the aforementioned image should be there.

Thanks for reading all of this. Gs22033 (talk) 17:33, 27 May 2018 (UTC)
