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, FinnishPokéFan92!

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 Bulbapedia 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.
  • 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!

To quote the welcome

All extensions must be lowercase. MaverickNate 18:52, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

To add to that

Please don't upload bad-quality pics like that. All anime pics have to be in the .png format. Never in any other format, especially .jpg. Why? Because .png is a higher quality picture format than .jpg. Keep that in mind. --Hmdwgf 22:51, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Please upload in png. Thank you. ht14 18:03, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
PNG. Please. ht14 18:29, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Pics with logos at the bottom

I don't think anybody told you this, so I'm going to tell you: Please don't upload anime pics with logos on them. Never ever do that. Plus, upload pics in .png format that are high quality and are larger than 200x150, not in any other format, inculding the .jpg format. It is so imperative you don't upload another pic like this. --Hmdwgf 23:03, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

OK. I got it. --FinnishPokéFan92 18:22, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
I don't think you do. Either you're ignoring me or you have no idea what a logo is. You're most likely ignoring me because you are also still uploading .jpgs. Just in case you don't know, a television station logo is a symbol that represents a broadcasting company. Such as a WB logo which was the American TV station Pokémon was initially broadcast on from 1998 - 2006. And one of the pictures you uploaded has that very logo on it. Stop uploading those bad pics, ESPECIALLY the ones with logos on them. I'm going to send you an e-mail with something useful inside it. --Hmdwgf 01:30, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
OK, I thought so. And what comes to jpgs, my image source has its images in jpg-form. --FinnishPokéFan92 13:44, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
If you could name me a possible image source besides bulbapedia, and photobucket, I'd be glad to hear it. --FinnishPokéFan92 13:45, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
I can't do that, and most of the pics on serebii and photobucket are bad quality anyway. I sent you an e-mail with a legit website to convert .jpg pics into .png format. Did you get it?
And you're still not listening to me. And you're not categorizing your images either ((just type Category: subject with two ['s and ]'s on each side) at the line below the description), you just uploaded a horrendous quality pic that is .jpg and doesn't belong on this website. Don't upload pics like the Muk's Sludge Bomb you uploaded, I replaced it. It's recommended that you do these things. P.S: Stop uploading pics like that. --Hmdwgf 15:15, 20 November 2009 (UTC)


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 18:31, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Header images

When you upload a higher quality image for an anime header, please change the template from the temporary Bulbanews one to the proper header template. Ataro (talk) 03:35, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Understood. Thanks for the information. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:44, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Yellow Trainer Sprites

Generation I sprites, just like Pokémon sprites need to be 56 x 56 pixels. Please make sure to upload the sprites at these dimensions. G50 06:18, 8 May 2013 (UTC)


The Bulbagarden Archives has a firm stance against taking images from other fansites, including an important message about Pokémon X and Y images posted just before the re-opening of the Bulbagarden Archives. Since the six Mega Stone sprites you uploaded were all taken from another fansite, you have been blocked for a duration of three days per the details of the aforementioned message. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 12:29, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Mewtwo's creators

I'd be glad to upload that image. I do have it, though the black-haired woman's face is slightly cut off. I think the image of their lab should still be present, though, so I'm going to rearrange their Bulbapedia page a little to include both. Glad I was of help. --The Great Butler (talk) 07:20, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Anime screenshots

HD era screenshots from the anime should be no larger than 1280×720 pixels. Additionally, please do not upload extremely blurry images such as this. Thanks, - Kogoro - Talk to me - 11:47, 7 January 2014 (UTC)


Well, turns out that the 2014 preview was aired at the end of a 40-minute special recap for the XY series. The sceenshot I got for XY015 comes from a brief intro that aired before said recap, but it didn't have any new clips besides Chespin vs. Delphox a brief shot of Ash and Pikachu hugging from the Malamar episode. I haven't found a video for it, I got the footage because I downloaded it, but I think we aren't allowed to put download links here. The new scene was 2 seconds long, so you aren't missing anything if you watched the 2014 preview, though. --Gabo 2oo (talk) 20:15, 9 January 2014 (UTC)


Hey, Clemont's Dedenne in episode XY020 once again was playing cameo appearance, in some scenes it was absent completely. Also Furfrou and Heliolisk appear in this episode, but in a fantasy. Add this on this page this is one of a few episode where Dedenne makes cameo appearance, even though it is absent for every other part of the episode. There is also an error of Dusknoir's eye, when it fainted. Also, The title card segment focuses on Ash for this episode XY020. Pikachu65 (talk) 11:34, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

ORAS game locations

You uploaded a few images like File:Champion Steven room ORAS.png. I was wondering where you got those images. They're about twice as big as screenshots should be (to my knowledge, 400x240), and they even have inconsistencies in dimensions, which is odd for a screenshot. Tiddlywinks (talk) 17:30, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

I must admit, I took them from various YouTube videos. I tried to take as good quality images as possible, but the dimensions were something I just couldn't affect. I hope this won't be (at least too big of) a problem. I just wanted the images to be uploaded, and they can always be updated. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:46, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
At the very least, I don't think it's permitted to just "take" images from a YouTube video, unless you've explicitly been given permission by the uploader. But one way or another, staff will be the ones to take action if any is warranted. I totally sympathize with just wanting ORAS images, though... =P Tiddlywinks (talk) 21:18, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Be Nice.

So you're aware, the code of conduct on Bulbapedia extends to the Bulbagarden Archives as well. This message is very rude, is in clear violation of the code of conduct, and has been removed for such. There is never a reason to take jabs at someone like that, whether they're blocked or not. Play nice. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 08:50, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

Of course. I just felt a bit insulted and left an angry response in a moment of frustration. Sorry about that. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:35, 28 December 2016 (UTC)


You have been a contributor here long enough to know our policies on edit/upload warring. If you disagree with an upload that someone has made, you should discuss with either that user or on a talk page. Just because one party in a dispute is blocked does not give you permission to revert and continue the upload war. You have been blocked until January 1st, when you return, please keep our policies in mind. Thank you. --Pokemaster97 23:01, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

You said "This text should be in the edit summary, not the page itself"

I did put it in the summary when I uploaded it, but whatever I type in it ends up on the page itself. Unless, is there's a method I don't know about? Unowninator (talk) 06:14, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

No there isn't. I just remembered that when uploading pictures, everything written in the "summary" section will be displayed on the page, so you should only put the description of your picture there. PS. Please use shorter titles, okay? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 06:25, 1 May 2017 (UTC)


Any chance you can upload a pic of the Grubbin from SM069, the videos I have come with subtitles and there is a song playing over the sequence, preventing me from getting a good image.--BigDocFan (talk) 13:58, 15 April 2018 (UTC)q

Nope. I have the same problem. Sorry. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:05, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
Thanks anyway, will have to wait for the dub then.--BigDocFan (talk) 14:51, 15 April 2018 (UTC)

Image description correction Thanks

Thanks for correcting the description for File:GO434.png for me. Tag365 (talk) 16:02, 25 October 2018 (UTC)

No problem. If you're unsure how to do a proper description, just copy-paste and edit a similar one. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:49, 25 October 2018 (UTC)

Harper and Sarah

Thought I would get your opinion before trying again, how does this image look? (talk) 15:38, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Image not found... --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:12, 28 October 2018 (UTC) (talk) 16:22, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
It's definitely better than the last one. Is there not a shot where they would be facing the camera, even a little more? If not, this one is perfectly serviceable. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:24, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
Best I can find for now, hopefully they'll appear in future episodes where a better image can be found.--BigDocFan (talk) 16:45, 28 October 2018 (UTC)


Could you upload images of the Ultra Ranger's Pokemon for me? I would but have to take a break from my computer--BigDocFan (talk) 14:27, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Are you able to upload an image of the Torkoal seen in the Cafe?--BigDocFan (talk) 09:15, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
Not sure. The song lyrics may get in the way. And I do not have access to my screenshot capture option right now. Sorry. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:16, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks anyway, have asked Chosen to see if he could upload an image, if not, I'll have to wait until the dub comes out--BigDocFan (talk) 09:18, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
I'm unable to find any clean videos of the latest episode, was wondering if you could upload an image for SM135 of Kiawe and Mimo together?--BigDocFan (talk) 13:02, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
Done! --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 13:25, 18 August 2019 (UTC)


Sorry! I'll do that with future uploads!--Darknesslover5000 (talk) 18:54, 24 September 2019 (UTC)


Hey. I uploaded a different pic for Mimey. It's probably the only other full body shot I could get from the episode. It's kinda awkward, so if you don't think it's that great, just revert it, and I'll try to look for a better one in the future hopefully. Just letting you know. :]--ShallowShaddoll (talk) 18:45, 29 December 2019 (UTC)

The biggest problem is that your images are bigger than the maximum size of 1280×720. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:57, 29 December 2019 (UTC)
There is no maximum size. There's the maximum file size, yes, but your file is not permitted to be uploaded if you go over it. Other than that, there's no policy to what size the pictures have to be so long as they follow the usual ratio (which these pictures do cuz they're ripped straight from the episode and are completely unedited), at least to my knowledge. If I alter their size, the pictures get slightly smushed. If there is a policy for that, link it to me and I'll gladly overwrite the uploads. :]--ShallowShaddoll (talk) 19:03, 29 December 2019 (UTC)
There's a slight, 10 pixel difference. It's slight, but it's there. And I'd rather not upload altered pictures, unless an admin specifically asks me to do so. :] Hope you understand.--ShallowShaddoll (talk) 19:10, 29 December 2019 (UTC)
1280×720 is a recommended size for uncropped anime images. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:37, 29 December 2019 (UTC)
You keep saying that, but you don't link me any policies or admin comments that enforce that (i.e. because there is no such thing)... We have pics like Misty's Golduck for example, that are glued together just because it was the only way to showcase a full body shot of the Pokemon. I saw Chosen was contacted, so if he asks me to reupload the pictures in said size (whether that would risk damaging the pictures or not,) I'll do that no problem. :]--ShallowShaddoll (talk) 20:44, 29 December 2019 (UTC)
Otherwise, if you want to re upload the pics in the size you prefer them to be in, you can do that if you really want to. :]--ShallowShaddoll (talk) 20:46, 29 December 2019 (UTC)

Image Requests

Hello. I was wondering if you could upload some good quality pictures on my behalf?

  • The battlefields for each of the Battle Frontier facilities in the anime, like we have for the Gyms.
  • Water Gun for Big Town's Azumarill and Azurill and Flamethrower for Houndour

Thanks PardescanSlowbro (talk) 09:07, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

That battlefield image request I'd be happy to fulfill, but why those move pictures? Those aren't exactly overly notable Pokémon. Besides, it's kinda hard to find good quality material of some of the Pikachu shorts. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:27, 2 February 2020 (UTC)
In regards to the move pictures, I've got a page titled "Big Town Pokémon" in the works for all the recurring Pokémon from Big Town that aren't part of the Pichu Posse. PardescanSlowbro (talk) 13:15, 2 February 2020 (UTC)


Which application do you use for image capture and editing? Photoshop?--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 15:55, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

Nope. I either use a program I have (keep forgetting its name) to clip a picture from what I have on the screen, or simply take a screenshot from an uploaded video with the video program's built-in screenshot taker. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 16:36, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

Page request

Hi, I'm new here and I actually wanna request if it's alright to make a page here on Bulbapedia on Ryan Reynolds. I'm a big fan of him I got like a great picture for him if it's approved. NoobMaster96 (talk) 19:45, 22 November 2020 (UTC)

Archives talk pages are for Archives subjects. Only post your talk page message to either Bulbapedia or Archives, not both. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:20, 22 November 2020 (UTC)

Manga templates

FYI, I mainspaced the following templates

I would appreciate your help implmenting these new templates at your convienince. - Chosen (Talk) 23:40, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

Noticed, and already started doing the movie adaptation ones. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 23:41, 27 March 2021 (UTC)


I uploaded an image of versus the Iris battle against Ash, but ended up sending it under the wrong name. Can you help me with it? I don't have the authorization for that, can you tell me who can fix this? File:JN065 Ash VS Iris.png.png --Hikaru Wazana (talk) 02:20, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

It's been taken care of. For your reference, feel free to check the list of staff on the Archives. ht14 02:23, 10 May 2021 (UTC)
Thanks--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 02:27, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Leon's Charizard manga

I was thinking about uploading a Leon's Charizard image to the Journeys manga, however as I usually can't pick a very favorable image, I was wondering if you'd like the honors of doing that?The image that is currently shown doesn't show the full-body Pokémon, nor is it in good quality.

Or do you think it's better for me to do this?Hikaru Wazana (talk) 13:25, 21 December 2021 (UTC)

I can do it, sure, just not at this very moment. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 13:51, 21 December 2021 (UTC)

BDSP VS models

Hey I saw you uploaded the BDSP vs sprites for the npc trainers, do you have a pic of the Waiter too? Its the only one missing. If you could upload that it would be great, thanks! Meervo (talk) 15:23, 20 February 2023 (UTC)

Unfortunately, I don't. Sorry. I'm just as eager to get it uploaded as you are, believe me. But as you may have noticed, I did upload some more Student VS models from SV. Though, ironically, I do not have the VS model for the Waiter class from these games, either. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:47, 20 February 2023 (UTC)
Shame! Still, thank you for uploading all the other VS screens! Meervo (talk) 17:21, 20 February 2023 (UTC)
You're welcome! --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:29, 20 February 2023 (UTC)

Sprites for SV

Hello again, I'm planning on finishing uploading the rest of the Team Star Sprites so I just wanted to give you a heads up on that. Also I believe that the sprite for the Male Student #2 is only used for Trainer Youssef at the Navi Squad Base, so I was wondering if that should have its own individual name for the file, similar to Harrington? Thanks. --FrostyZippy (talk) 18:30, 21 February 2023 (UTC)

Sure, go ahead. Help is always appreciated. And yeah, you're right about Youssef. I'll ask someone to move it. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:49, 21 February 2023 (UTC)
I just finished finding the final Scarlet male grunt sprite, since there's two different versions of each grunt that you can randomly encounter at each base per save file. It was hard to find because most playthroughs I've seen, including my own, had the first one. Only 2 violet ones and carmen left. --FrostyZippy (talk) 02:59, 25 February 2023 (UTC)

New HOME menu sprites

Hey! The BDSP/SV style artwork for almost every single Pokémon (no G-Max forms, Spiky Pichu, Cosplay Pichu, LGPE mascots, etc.) are available on the home website icon0001_f00_s0.png. I have them all ready for upload. Has this been discussed yet? What the file names should be, etc. These are perfect for the MS redirects, since the Pokémon are resized to fit within 128x128px much better (no empty space), akin to the previous style. Some are even different. icon1009_f00_s0.png Oneofthosedf (talk) 14:42, 21 May 2023 (UTC)

Okay. Thanks for informing me. I'm not an admin, so I am not aware if the usage of these images has been discussed yet. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 21:53, 21 May 2023 (UTC)
Sorry, for some reason I thought you were. Do you know which admin could help me? I have tried asking multiple, but they don't ever respond. Oneofthosedf (talk) 22:40, 21 May 2023 (UTC)
Coffee is a fairly active admin. You could ask him for directions. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:48, 22 May 2023 (UTC)
I'll try my luck, thank you! Oneofthosedf (talk) 15:27, 22 May 2023 (UTC)
You're welcome. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 18:40, 22 May 2023 (UTC)

File names and uploads

When uploading, use the file name that has been provided when uploading pictures, I put "Liko house.png" but you made "Liko home.png", not sure if you want to move your "Liko home" to "Liko house" so that the file name in the code is consistent with the others. and maybe next time make sure that yours and mine uploads are different enough to be changed because I'm not sure if you're checking the differences but most of my uploads are almost the same as yours. I know you've been on this site longer than I have but I would like to have some of those uploads added to my upload list so that it can grow while I work on Horizons. CuteSylveon42 (talk) 10:25, 10 June 2023 (UTC)

Finnish asked me to have a look into it, I have determined that Liko house is the correct title, it would seem I made a mistake when I sent it to him. I have asked for Liko home to be deleted and uploaded the image we used for Liko home in place of Liko house as the image is better.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 14:23, 10 June 2023 (UTC)

Anime Images

Heya, I just wanted to let you know since I saw you tell Mewtwo150Mew151 to downscale an anime image. It was discussed among staff, and we agreed that going forward native 1080p (1920x1080) resolution images are fine and that the 720p guideline is a bit outdated. 4iamking 21:57, 6 August 2023 (UTC)

Oh. Well, it won't be easy from me to get out of the old mindset, so I may continue with the old size out of habit. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 22:05, 6 August 2023 (UTC)

Image Uploading

Hi there. I'm trying to upload an image with a 1920 x 1080 resolution (since I've been told it's now allowed), but the the Archives don't allow me, saying the file it's bigger than what it allows. So, should I resize it to 1280, or is there a way to solve it? HygorBH (talk) 16:58, 10 September 2023 (UTC)

You can compress the image to bring it under the 2MB limit, I use, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 17:01, 10 September 2023 (UTC)
It worked, thanks. HygorBH (talk) 17:05, 10 September 2023 (UTC)

Drama Pokémon

In which category will the images from the TV series go? For the anime series category?--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 02:44, 20 October 2023 (UTC)

There is a rights template that automatically adds the anime series image category when used. It's available in the selection of rights templates in the upload screen. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:18, 20 October 2023 (UTC)


When I'm adding the comments I'm putting them in seperate lines I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong - unsigned comment from Krookodilian (talkcontribs)
