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, Duke R!

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!

Lowercase extensions

Please user lowercase extensions when you upload files, so that it is .png and not .PNG. Thanks Jellotalk 04:45, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

I know, I'll try to pay more attention. It's not the first time this happens. Sorry. Duke R 05:02, 13 January 2011 (UTC)


Okay, please do not cut the image from the volume's cover for Cherrim. It's really unneeded and looks out of place with the other black and white images of her Pokemon. If any official art (like some of the other Pokedex holders) comes up for it, then it can be changed. But please, do not change it. Ataro 01:34, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

OK, understood. I did Cherrim and Sird based on images like these: Wallace Adventures.png; Wallace and Winona.png. But this seems to be a differente case. Won't happen again, Ataro. |) u |( e 01:49, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Regarding your edit on the file talkpage

Thanks for notifying me; however, next time use the {{move}} template, so that admins can see what needs to be moved through this category. The template automatically adds that category. ht14 15:15, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Oh, I didn't know this template. Thank you, Ht14. |) u |( e ® 15:18, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Of course you may, and you just did. ;) |) u |( e ® 14:58, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
