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, Lugia!

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!

Latias pic

Did you take that yourself? Is there any chance you could do it again and get a higher resolution/quality image in a png format? —darklordtrom 23:20, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

I can try. But, I'd need to restart my game. LugiaRocks 16:23, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
Don't bother then. —darklordtrom 21:19, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
When SS arrives from Play-Asia and when I get the Enigma Crystal - I could see if I could get a better pic.
*shrug* whatever. Just never ever take images from that site with the name that starts with S. Yeah, you know the one I'm talking about. Do it again and you are gonna get blocked. —darklordtrom 21:22, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
I just Googled Sea Foam Islands HGSS Articuno and got it. How can I get images without copyright infringing? LugiaRocks 21:24, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
Well for a start any image with a Celebi in it belongs to Serebii. You can't use them. You need to take a picture from your own game. —darklordtrom 21:26, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
I can't say I didn't not think that it was from Serebii... lol. Do you have HG or SS ? LugiaRocks 21:28, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
No I do not.
The numbers refer to how many bytes are added to the page. You need to hard-refresh the image twice before it shows up as the new one. Ctrl+F5 and all that jazz. Btw, just reply here, ok? Don't bother going to my page and splitting the conversation up. —darklordtrom 21:29, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
K. Thanks LugiaRocks 21:31, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
Did you see my change on the Legendary Golems? Pretty nice, don't ya think? LugiaRocks 21:34, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
See how I fixed that horrible red link there? Pretty nice, don't ya think? :P —darklordtrom 21:35, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
Hey, gimme a break I'm new to the archives. :P Now, I've updated the regis, pixies and birds - but I cant get a pic from my game as I've already caught them and can't use Serebii's. LugiaRocks 21:39, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
Right now I'm working on updating the weather trio's whereabouts. LugiaRocks 21:43, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
