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, Hikaru Wazana!

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.
  • 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 make sure to use png instead of png and jpg instead of JPG. Lowercase extensions work so much better, look better, and also aren't limited by templates. Just make sure that from now on, every image you upload has lowercase extensions. MaverickNate 23:12, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Always lowercase extensions. This is your second warning. MaverickNate 02:19, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Last warning. If you do it again, you will be blocked. MaverickNate 00:18, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
How sad. I was hoping you would actually follow the rules. Start using lowercase extensions, or your block will be longer next time. MaverickNate 20:59, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
Please use lowercase extensions. You will be blocked. ht14 23:15, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
Seeing as you've already been blocked previously, I've blocked you for 3 days. Whether Mav (or any other admin) wants to change it is his decision. Please stop uploading with uppercase extensions. Thanks. ht14 18:56, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

.jpg pics

Please don't upload .jpg files, especially low-quality files, and I'm talking about the Orange Island Gym Leader's Pokemon pics. Now I have to go and clean up the mess you made and get better pics than the ones you uploaded. And you're lucky I can actually speak Portuguese fluently, you can speak to me in that language. If you didn't understand this text, just ask me to translate it, it's no problem at all. --Hmdwgf 22:59, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Please upload pics in .png format. --Hmdwgf 04:10, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

Congratuations. You finally uploaded a pic in the right format! There's only one problem. Please don't upload any anime pics with logos on them. This is very important. --Hmdwgf 03:55, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

Also, png, not PNG. This is because some templates only accept png, not PNG. ht14 16:34, 9 September 2010 (UTC)


Please do not upload files with non-alphanumeric characters in its name. 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. --Pattyman 04:28, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, and Sorry about this. =/ Hikaru Wazana 10:32, 09 February 2012 (UTC)
Not a problem. Pattyman 15:10, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

BW2 Promo images

I'd like to inform you of something. We do not consider the BW2 trailer to be related to the anime at all and is simply for the games. As such, all images from it are to be labeled with the game screenshot template. Ataro 13:36, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

In fact, I not know exactly what the best definition for the screens, because despite being a material of the games is an anime. And possible the only appearance of some of them animated.Hikaru Wazana 13:39, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

B2W2's ANIME screenshots

Hello, Hikaru Wazana!

Since you uploaded a 1080p screenshot for N's appearance in the ANIME trailer of B2W2, could you do the same for the Shadow Triad? Here's the one I uploaded. My screen doesn't support such resolution. Thank you! |) u |( e ® 20:25, 17 May 2012 (UTC)


Sorry, they looked the exact same as those found on Pokémon Wikia. I know you might not have meant it. - PokémonGamer 04:53, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

I didn't know you were searching on Google for those. (making another comment since I don't think I'm allowed to edit my comments) - PokémonGamer 04:54, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

SS007 images

I see you're uploading images from SS007. Might I suggest waiting because the images clearly come from a low quality video with a logo which isn't recommended on here--BigDocFan (talk) 13:23, 29 December 2019 (UTC)

I agree. Plus, the titles you're giving to your images aren't really up to code either. Please wait. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 13:46, 29 December 2019 (UTC)
I had a picture with the three Go's wurmple to post. If they think it's in the standards, well, they're there. Wazana (talk) 15:46, 29 December 2019 (UTC)

Logo top right, black border on the left so not that good--BigDocFan (talk) 15:24, 29 December 2019 (UTC)

Image quality again

The images you're uploading now have noticable black lines at the edges, and thus do not fulfill Bulbagarden's requirements for good quality images. Please wait until the HD version surfaces. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:44, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

Ok, sorry. I was doing some testing with a new application that I am using. Apparently it didn't work out well either. = / --Hikaru Wazana (talk) 14:55, 2 February 2020 (UTC)
Can't help but notice your recent images aren't the best quality again--BigDocFan (talk) 11:20, 5 July 2020 (UTC)
I'm sorry, they are temporary, being able to tidy up the sections of a page that I started. As soon as I have better quality I will post them. = /--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 11:31, 5 July 2020 (UTC)

Movie 22 Images

I see you've uploaded images of Gary and his Arcanine from Movie 22, we prefer the term M22 rather then Movie 22.--BigDocFan (talk) 14:16, 7 February 2020 (UTC)

Oh, Thanks. =D --Hikaru Wazana (talk) 16:55, 7 February 2020 (UTC)


You're neglecting to add appropriate categories to your uploaded images. Please be sure to add them to your future uploads. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:19, 26 March 2020 (UTC)

The truth is that I forgot how to put it. I'm sorry, can you tell me where I can find the tutorial?--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 20:29, 26 March 2020 (UTC)
There is no tutorial, AFAIK. Either just add them to the bottom of the page after uploading, or copy the contents of an editing window from an existing image, paste them on the screen while uploading an image, and edit the description and categories to fit the image you're uploading. I hope you understood. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 22:20, 26 March 2020 (UTC)
I will try to pay attention to that next time, thanks.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 22:29, 26 March 2020 (UTC)
You're still doing it. Also, don't forget you can add Bulbapedia links to the image descriptions. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:14, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Don't forget: when uploading from a web series like Paldean Winds, be sure to name the image appropriately. For example, like Pokémon Origins images have "PO" in their titles, Paldean Wind images should have "PW" in their titles. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:14, 18 October 2023 (UTC)

File naming

Please make sure that when you upload an image, they're given the proper filenames. Images related to Pokemon Adventures must have "Adventures" put on at the end, especially when they're for non-original characters such as Nessa. They're only supposed to be blank for the anime. Ataro (talk) 03:23, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

Ok. Taking advantage, I noticed that you undid the changes that I made in the pages of the characters(Nessa and Sodo) of these last photos that I hosted. Was there something wrong?
Asking why if I put something back on they can accuse me of doing edit war.Hikaru Wazana (talk) 14:50, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

Category placement

When adding categories to the images you upload, please 1) put them under the "Licensing" header, not the "Summary" header, and 2) place them on top of each other, not in a row. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:55, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

Oh, and make sure you add categories for every human character (as long as they have their own categories, of course) and Pokémon in the picture, not just the most prominent ones. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:59, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
You're still placing categories in a row and under the wrong header. Also, all Twilight Wings images should have a TW at the end, not just some. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:27, 6 November 2020 (UTC)
About the categories...What is the right formatting that I have to put? Can you help me with that?--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 14:33, 6 November 2020 (UTC)
You could do what I do, upload the image, add the summary and then edit the post to place the categories under the licensing bit--BigDocFan (talk) 14:37, 6 November 2020 (UTC)
I put some images on the server, did I get them placed correctly this time?--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 22:55, 09 November 2020 (UTC)
You keep putting them in a line instead of atop of each other, and under the Summary header instead of the Licensing header. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:43, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
Please start putting the categories on top of each other. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:41, 22 March 2021 (UTC)

Korrina and Ash friends.png

I'm able to upgrade images, can you confirm which episode you got Korrina and Ash friends.png from?--BigDocFan (talk) 22:25, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

Hi, Happy New Year. It's from XY 31. The episode when the group goes to Mega Evolution Cave--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 13:30, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Goh and Raichu image

Where did you find the video where you got the image of Goh and Raichu?--BigDocFan (talk) 15:55, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

It's from Official Twitter of anipoke. They released some high quality images.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 16:37, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

Link templates

Hello! Just wanted to let you know that aside from {{bp}}, we do have many of the templates from Bulbapedia as well, including {{p}} and {{a}}. As such, just a reminder that you link Pokémon with the p template. If you're curious about what other link templates that we have, you can check it out here. Thanks! ht14 03:58, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Hi, thank you very much. :D -Hikaru Wazana (talk) 17:37, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
You're still using "bp" for Pokémon instead of "p". Also, reminder: place the categories at the bottom, not under the "Summary" section. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 22:10, 18 June 2021 (UTC)

Delete/Move Requests

If you ever upload an image with the wrong name and need it changing to deleting, I highly recommend you ask Chosen to do it, he's done a few that I've made mistakes with--BigDocFan (talk) 09:17, 12 August 2021 (UTC)

I understand, thank you. o/-Hikaru Wazana (talk) 12:20, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Domino manga image

Hi, I was wondering if you could tell me where you got the image of Domino in the Mewtwo Returns manga that you uploaded? The Great Butler (talk) 06:42, 28 August 2021 (UTC)

Hi, I would pass without problems, but the site I found them has been disabled (was a Russian Pokémon site). At the time I found the image, I found a bunch of scans of the franchise's manga. In the case of Mewtwo Returns, they only had the first volume of the manga.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 12:25, 28 August 2021 (UTC)
Look, take a look to see if it helps you with what you need.
It's outdated, but it looks like it still has active links.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 12:48, 28 August 2021 (UTC)


Since I've not been able to find scans of the Journeys manga myself, could you upload images of Ash and Goh's Pokémon that we're missing? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:40, 12 September 2021 (UTC)

Unnecessary upload(s)

Your Machamp image upload is unnecessary because 1) the episode hasn't aired yet, so Machamp hasn't Gigantamaxed yet, 2) there's text in the image, so it needs to be upgraded anyway, and 3) her Machamp had only appeared in Journeys, so the JN at the end of the title is unnecessary. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:15, 24 September 2021 (UTC)

I know exactly these three points you mentioned, I just uploaded it to be able to arrange the sections on the page I'm putting together for Bea. Only that. I do not intend to use this page outside of MY userspace.
And no, Bea's Machamp has briefly appeared in Pokémon Twilight Wings, and will definitely appear in the Adventures manga.Hikaru Wazana (talk) 15:29, 24 September 2021 (UTC)

Link templates

Please be aware that many common link templates like "p", "pkmn", and "an" work on Archives as well. Please use them when necessary. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:05, 30 September 2021 (UTC)

Please don't forget to use the templates whenever necessary. Also, don't forget to place categories on top of each other instead of in a row. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 20:49, 23 October 2021 (UTC)
The "Ash" template also works here. {{bp|Ash}} is a redirect link. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 22:10, 12 November 2021 (UTC)
Thanks.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 22:15, 12 November 2021 (UTC)
You're still neglecting to use the "p" template. And you're overusing the "anime characters" template too. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:50, 18 December 2021 (UTC)
But which one should be used? It's not "anime characters", so which one?--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 15:06, 18 December 2021 (UTC)
With the Bellsprout image, you again neglected the use of the "P" template. And anime character template is reserved for images focusing on characters. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:00, 19 December 2021 (UTC)

You've not been using the p template in your BBS image descriptions. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 19:52, 12 January 2022 (UTC)

I've noticed you're not using the p template. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:59, 18 March 2022 (UTC)

Image Source

I'm curious to know where you got your video source for Ash Mega Lucario.png--BigDocFan (talk) 20:55, 5 November 2021 (UTC)

It was from the episode itself. I was able to watch it early on the fansub that I follow with subtitles.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 20:59, 5 November 2021 (UTC)


Pokémon Evolutions images should have the "Pokémon Evolutions" category with them, and "Evolutions" at the end of their titles, not PE. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 14:53, 2 December 2021 (UTC)


I don't suppose you fancy joining the Bulbapedia Discord which would make communicating with other members easier? (talk) 20:25, 10 December 2021 (UTC)

BigDocFan is trying to contact you on Discord. He wishes to talk with you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:09, 17 December 2021 (UTC)

Absol legend Hoenn.png

Just so you know, the image you uploaded for Absol legend Hoenn.png is also in use as JN064--BigDocFan (talk) 15:57, 18 December 2021 (UTC)

I had no idea, what is good to do in this case? Delete the image and use the one from the episode? =/
I was reviewing the episode and I thought that it would be interesting to put it in the article, I had no idea that I already had one of these, usually the system notifies. --Hikaru Wazana (talk) 16:25, 18 December 2021 (UTC)

Image titles

The Wobbuffet image should've been titled "Jessie Wobbuffet JNM.png", not "Wobbuffet JNM.png". And you also used the manga's Japanese name in the description. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:59, 19 December 2021 (UTC)

With a lot of stuff I uploaded it ended up going unnoticed. I will try to fix it. Thanks.Hikaru Wazana (talk) 10:15, 19 December 2021 (UTC)

Image request

Hi Hikaru Wazana, I hope you are doing well! I noticed that you were uploading images for Momo for the Pokétoon. Thanks for your help there! I was wondering if you would be interested in uploading representative images for the Pokétoons like this image for the 5th-9th Pokétoon. Thanks in advance! ht14 20:26, 9 January 2022 (UTC)

Sorry, I can't count. I meant the 5th-8th Pokétoon. ht14 20:27, 9 January 2022 (UTC)
Alright, I will try to upload these images in the next few days. I already have some on my pc here. I'll try to work with a little affection on the Pokétoon episodes because I think the series is deserving a little more attention and love.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 21:45, 09 January 2022 (UTC)


I noticed in your latest summaries that when using links for Pokemon, you're using bp instead of p, please use the correct term and check if the quality of your images are good as we had to upgrade your images from JN102 to improve their quality.--BigDocFan (talk) 20:47, 1 April 2022 (UTC)

The problem is that the captures I get from an episode in 1080p, you know that. I don't know where to find better quality than that. The other point was my fault, I admit. I have to pay attention to these details.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 21:25, 1 April 2022 (UTC)
Polite reminder p for Pokemon, not bp--BigDocFan (talk) 16:42, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
I'll try to pay more attention to that.--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 20:25, 24 June 2022 (UTC)
p for Eternatus, not bp--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 15:57, 30 September 2022 (UTC)

Adventures image

Where did you get that Adventures image of Mustard you uploaded? That round hasn't been translated yet in any of the sources I could find. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:56, 21 July 2022 (UTC)

Hikaru Wazana (talk) 17:42, 22 July 2022 (UTC)


As Lyra has her own anime page, links to her page must be an, not bp--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 09:24, 9 September 2022 (UTC)

The truth is that I didn't even know that the site had this code =/, where is the complete list in case I need to upload other types of images?I wanted to work on some pages that have little content.-Hikaru Wazana (talk) 10:48, 9 September 2022 (UTC)


Uploading a DP image of Wallace is unnecessary, as his current anime image is already from DP. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:29, 10 November 2022 (UTC)


I'd like to request you stop uploading anime images from your early source. The image quality in it is not quite as good as the one with the source that comes available later, meaning that your uploaded images will be upgraded anyway. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 17:24, 11 November 2022 (UTC)

Daisy images

I've noticed you've been uploading images for Daisy, including adding a category for Daisy, something that she doesn't have. As Daisy doesn't have her own category (and probably won't get one), please don't add one to any future images you upload. Also with Daisy and Misty.png, you forgot to crop the image and make it 640x480, something I have since done.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 19:25, 28 December 2022 (UTC)

I'm trying to work on some recurring character pages during this anime hiatus. There is a lot to be done and there are not always people interested in doing it. I hadn't even noticed that Daisy didn't have her own image category, I thought it did since she is an important character in the anime. Sorry.
About the last image, my Pokémon Chronicles episodes are in horrible quality. Then I had to get this image from the Poké website. To avoid inconvenience, if I have an image that I want to upload, can I be asking you on discord? Or what other ways do you suggest?--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 02:51, 29 December 2022 (UTC)


As previously mentioned above, you're adding categories to images that don't exist. Might I suggest in future you check to make sure a category does exist before you add it.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 19:46, 31 December 2022 (UTC)

New images

Just letting you know for future reference, images don't have to be 1280x720 any more, we can have them 1920x1080--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 13:46, 7 August 2023 (UTC)

Good to know, I usually have to use an extra app to convert these formats correctly. Thank you very much for letting me know. :D--Hikaru Wazana (talk) 13:59, 7 August 2023 (UTC)

Regarding your recent edits

Regarding your recent edits ([1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8]), the reason those images were reverted to a screenshot was because the artwork was AI upscaled. Thus, reverting the images to their unofficial artwork versions and then adding the {{bad image}} template is actually not useful. → PikaTepig999 08:46, 4 October 2023 (UTC)

Screenshot Resolution

If you're uploading anime screenshots, upload them in their original resolution, as I've mentioned on your last several from Paldean Winds. --Lewtwo (talk) 17:59, 30 November 2023 (UTC)

Just to be clear, this isn't any sort of requirement, 1080p is preferred over 720p and they can/should be replaced where possible. Even so, as long as the resolutions aren't distorted having images is better than not having them. 4iamking 01:26, 2 December 2023 (UTC)

Diana links

Polite reminder that when adding a link to Diana's page, the correct link is {{OBP|Diana|Horizons}} and not {{bp|Diana}}--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 18:45, 8 December 2023 (UTC)

Thanks. o/ --Hikaru Wazana (talk) 19:13, 8 December 2023 (UTC)
