Before uploading any images taken from Nintendo 3DS games, please take a moment to read this message.
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, Pawel10s!

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!

Please upload .png files for anime screenshots instead of .jpgs as .png is of a higher quality. Also, please tag and categorize all your uploads. Thank you. JelloTalk 14:18, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

jpg. images and summaries

Hi there, please remember to upload anime screenshots as png., and not jpg. Also, please remember to add a summary, and categories relevant to the image. XVuvuzela2010X 22:31, 8 December 2011 (UTC)


Would you mind explaining your recent "Hammer Arm" upload? We already have a 720p image, so there is no need to save the same image and re-upload it with a different name. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 06:56, 24 March 2012 (UTC)


This is the last notice you will receive. Please tag all images, or you will lose the privilege of uploading them. --Pattyman (talk) 20:39, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

To clarify, that means you MUST include a summary and relevant categories as well as the licensing tag. Failure to do so again will result in a loss of the ability to upload. --SnorlaxMonster 07:25, 19 August 2012 (UTC)


Please make sure to select a copyright licensing when you upload an image. Not only that, but make sure there's a section named "Summary." Also, please categorize move images for the anime Category:Moves (anime).--HyruleWarrior (talk) 13:14, 27 February 2016 (UTC)
