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, Pokemon lover!

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!

Can you reupload your FRLG beta images so the still frames of the anipngs can be viewed by those that do not have browsers that view anipngs? Thanks. ht14 14:46, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

I'll try doing that when I get around it. It is indeed bad right now. SatoMew2 13:31, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Native resolution

What do you mean by native resolution for File:Goldenrod City C.png as those are exceptional to the 1280x1280 limit? Pattyman 13:26, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Wait, I actually saw it here. Pattyman 13:28, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
Compared with File:Goldenrod City GS.png, the resolution of the one from international Crystal is about the double of the one from Gold and Silver. Furthermore, you can see that the image doesn't look completely clear or as sharp as it should be. My guess is that someone zoomed it in after extracting it from the ROM.

I just saw it too (the blurs with the words Poké and Mart). Pattyman 13:37, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
I now know that it was not zoomed in after extraction. I've found an actually good and usable build of CrysMap with support for English Crystal ROMs and when saving the map, it saves it with that resolution. However, CrysMap, being derived from GoldMap, is not that good of a tool and does not provide maps at their native resolution. I took Goldenrod's GS map using JohtoMap v1.02 but that only supports Gold and Silver, not Crystal. SatoMew2 13:54, 9 April 2012 (UTC)


Don't add Kanto to gates to Crystal. It makes them list only as Kanto maps, while they appear in both regions. Marked +-+-+ 17:09, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

OK, gotcha! ^^ SatoMew2 22:26, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Unused overworld sprites from FRLG.

Unsure if move them, since Mew has used sprite in Emerald and there is a naming standard. Also, they should be 32x32 and transparent. Like this sprite (16x16 is for Gen I and II, 32x32 for III and IV... and V I'll guess). Marked +-+-+ 19:13, 27 April 2012 (UTC) PS. Guessing you found them with Advance Map?

Nope, I found them at TCRF. But it doesn't matter if they're used in Emerald since they're unused in FRLG. SatoMew2 (talk) 13:57, 14 October 2012 (UTC)


Before tagging a large number of similar files for moving to new filenames, such a mass-renaming proposition should be brought toward the staff and be allowed to undergo a proper discussion. Please be sure to properly propose such a massive change in a singular location if you have such an idea in the future. As for the filenames you selected for those screenshots, the names you were selecting were impossible to use. As the existing files are .png format, there is no way we can move them to a .jpg filename. Additionally, since there is already ongoing debate regarding calling them "eyecatches," it would be highly premature to move them to filenames containing such a term. Thanks for understanding, - Kogoro - Talk to me - 05:04, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Wait, the .jpg part was an oversight. Since I obviously didn't type in everything from scratch on every single instance, the mistake went to all the move proposals. - unsigned comment from SatoMew2 (talkcontribs)
