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 Bulbagarden Archives, TTEchidna. Please read the checklist when you upload media files, and be sure to tag all images. - 振霖T 02:49, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

Please tag all images. This is your second notice. - 振霖T 02:43, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Uh, a lil' help uploading the MS sprites please...Optimus35 15:27, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Yo, we have a seperate Manual of style here that you may want to look at. It would help a lot if you categorise the images you upload. --FabuVinny 12:42, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Er, oops? TTEchidna 05:05, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

A request...

Hey man, I was wondering if I could ask you to convert all the animated GIFs from Trozei into animated PNGs, using {{Trozeiani|name|number}}.

  • Bulbasaur for example would be {{Trozeiani|Bulbasaur|001}}
  • Unown A: {{Trozeiani|Unown|001 - A form}}.

I really want to convert all the GIFs to APNG, and figured this would be a good start. All the licensing and categorization is included in the template. Is that a reasonable request? :P MK 14:30, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

>> Well, one, it'd be better to ask on my Bulbapedia talk page rather than archives. Two, I'm kinda busy pnging the AniMSes from Pt. Three, animated pngs look best when they're composed of two pngs, not two frames of a gif. If you could get each frame of a Trozei sprite as separate pngs, however, then we'd be in business...
You could also start off on pnging them up yourself... I'll be on AIM later today and so you can IM me and ask how, I'll walk you through it. TTEchidna 20:38, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Please do something...

Moldy orange is abusing his admin powers again. He protected and reverted Valley Windworks Drifloon Platinum.PNG for no reason. Unless there's a good reason to protect a page, it's an abuse of admin power to protect it, right? I really want you to do something about him, because he's abused his admin powers way too many times. --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 01:52, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

You were obviously participating in an edit war, which is a blockable offense. I protected the page and reverted it to the original image from before the edit war started in order to stop it. Moldy orange 01:59, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
Me and Tc26 reverted once. How does that make it an edit war? --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 02:00, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
One thing. Why are you guys doing this on archives? Why not do it on my Pedia talk.
Also, um, if Lucas isn't in the sprite... how the hell can you know it's a Platinum screenshot?! TTEchidna 03:53, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
This wasn't a pedia problem. I would prefer if the two aren't mixed. So I try to keep it here. Moldy orange 04:42, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
Archives and Pedia are linked. A problem on one is a problem on both. TTEchidna 01:34, 22 September 2008 (UTC)


I know I should ask this in your pedia talk page, but yet I'm asking it here so as to keep your pedia talk page from feeling up too rapidly. Can you please delete the global account of User:Misty-may-dawn rulz(That's my old account)?--Diby 10:22, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Uhm... yeah. TTEchidna 00:39, 23 October 2008 (UTC)


Why did you delete and redirect the Primeape Platinum sprites? Chocolate 17:02, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Primeape, not being in the Sinnoh Dex NOR a Gen IV Pokémon DID NOT receive new sprites in Platinum. The sprite uploaded was the second frame sprite from Diamond and Pearl. TTEchidna 21:04, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
Several others that aren't in the Sinnoh Dex and that weren't introduced in Gen. IV also have new sprites, such as Ninetales, Oddish and Meowth. And no, that Primeape sprite wasn't the second frame D/P sprite.

First frame D/P sprite:


Second frame D/P sprite:


So please restore the image. Chocolate 01:24, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

It wasn't?! Guh. I wish people would quit jumping at everything. TTEchidna 04:14, 4 November 2008 (UTC)


What did you change the Archives:Manual of style‎ for Episode and movie screenshots? That is why we have spoilers template at Bulbpedia, and if they don't want to be spoiled they shouldn't look at the page in question.

If a person wants to see when the episode airs, perhaps? TTEchidna 21:34, 7 December 2008 (UTC)


Why can the Giratina sprite not be animated? Chocolate 22:36, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

The ###.png sprites (and all extensions of that) are static so people don't have them moving all over the place. 487O.png is a ###.png sprite. 423E.png (which doesn't exist) is a ###.png sprite. The Spr game sprites can be animated, but ###.png is just a bad idea. Especially since thumbnails don't support it png animation. TTEchidna 22:46, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Custom Sprite clean up

I was just cleaning up the Custom Sprites on Bulbapedia. The following sprites are not used in any main space pages, so it would be nice if you deleted the files...and it would also be nice if there's a way I can do it myself as the leader of custom sprites. But anyways, below are the ones that are needed to be deleted.

Delete tag! TTEchidna 01:36, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
I already did it. Maverick Nate 02:01, 20 January 2009 (UTC)


Moldy Orange and Moldt Orange. I think this is all you wanted. Maverick Nate 03:21, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

And they're... linked to your universal for Nate? Or not? TTEchidna 05:01, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
I don't think so... Maverick Nate 20:20, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
Well if not... it doesn't really matter. Just relegate them to obscurity and that's that. TTEchidna 00:10, 22 January 2009 (UTC)


Every image needs categories. This helps prevent duplicates from being uploaded. Some of your more recent uploads should have been placed into Category:Logos. Don't forget next time. Maverick Nate 13:59, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Anime and previous Gen art

What do you should the uniform name for the anime art be? So far, I've been using Argy's "1k-(name).png".

And for previous generation artwork of Pokémon, do you think we can use the same system as the sprites? Like ###Name-form.png being the most recent art, similar to ###.png for the sprites, and something else for art from previous generations. Tc26 04:06, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Yeah. Old art should probably go to... eh... ###NAME-GAME-FORM.extension. TTEchidna 04:09, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
So like 250Ho-Oh-GS.png or 250Ho-Oh-II.png? How about the anime art? Tc26 04:13, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
I'd go with the letters. After all, you have Turtwig DP. TTEchidna 04:14, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Category removals

May I ask you why the heck have you removed some essential and widely-used categories such as Category:Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire sprites or Category:Pokémon Crystal sprites? Is this a part of some new renovation I'm not aware of? UltimateSephiroth 20:27, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Main Page's talk page, showing the current Archives Cleanup project - Kogoro | Talk to me - 21:14, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
Oh... Okay then, I was wrong. You could, by the way, make that transition project a LOT faster by replacing the category tags on the generation-specific templates (for example Template:Spr 1g). Or are these also going to be deprecated? UltimateSephiroth 21:33, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
We're gonna kill those. Too many of them. TTEchidna 22:32, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
Oh, I see. I could use some of my time to mass change those away... :P UltimateSephiroth 23:29, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
If you wish to. TTEchidna 22:53, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Images such as File:124Jynx.png

Shadows don't look good on backgrounds.--Mew a.k.a. Immewnity 15:15, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Well consider that we're mostly putting them on the infobox pages... if you wanna do the shadows, though, I suppose I'll try 'em. TTEchidna 23:07, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Sprite sizes

It seems that you have given the command that all generation II sprites should be 60x60 pixels in size. However, I strongly think you are wrong. See this diagram I hastily put together:

Image:Bp sprite size proof.png

My opinion is that the sprite size is 56x56 pixels. Period. UltimateSephiroth 14:19, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Well, you do seem to be completely right. I dunno, it actually never occurred to me to check ????? to be sure. If you want, you can fix those up... Wherever I order the 60x60, though, I'll change that. TTEchidna 22:27, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks :p I'll try to revert as many 60x60 sprites as I can to 56x56. UltimateSephiroth 13:27, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
Just make absofreakinglutely sure that you aren't reverting to a non-transparent version though! TTEchidna 20:22, 27 August 2009 (UTC)


I've screwed this gal up: Colo Newscaster.png. Halp! TT_TT --Manga-in-a-bottle 04:47, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

How? TTEchidna 05:04, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
I realized I uploaded the wrong image under the wrong name, and when I tried to fix it, the new image won't show up. Did I miss a step or something? --Manga-in-a-bottle 05:14, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
Oh, wait, it's fixed now --Manga-in-a-bottle 05:15, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Delete, please?

Hi! CAn you delete this image: image:Rizardon 3.JPG

I uploaded a new and better version. Thanks!

Pedraito 12:50, 7 September 2009 (UTC)

Can you please...

Take off the 'm' in File:Spr 4h 130 m.png, File:Spr 4h 123 m.png, and File:Spr 4h 208 m.png? The 'm' makes the sprites incompatible with the new templates, as they use File:Spr 4h ###.png. R.A.Hunter Blade 21:49, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

What "new templates"? The party? spritegender=male. TTEchidna 21:50, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
Yes. And oh yeah. Totally forgot about that. The main one I needed was for Gyarados, because Clair, Lance, and Blue all use it. Thanks. R.A.Hunter Blade 21:54, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
There ya go. As for Trainer sprites, I have them, just not uploaded. TTEchidna 21:56, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

Ho-Oh; Apologies

I checked the Ho-Oh "Latest" sprite file, (the 250.png one) and it showed that the latest one was not HG/SS's. So I just uploaded it and NOW it shows me that you changed it before I got to it. I just wanted to apologise for uploading over your perfectly fine file. ASecondOpinion1501 22:54, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

Cache-clearing: your best friend. TTEchidna 03:14, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Gligar sprite for HGSS

Can I upload it? CuboneKing 01:32, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

There are three. Male sprite, female sprite, and ###.png. TTEchidna 05:55, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Replacing images

Did you reply to my PM? If so I never received it. I didn't receive a copy of my sent PM either. Is there a Special page on Bulbapedia itself with my PMs or am I supposed to just check outside? I can't find any.

I just found out Maverick Nate is the editor-in-chief for the Archives but since you were the one I sent the PM to- Is it possible to upload PNG images in place of JPG images and other file types? It'd be easier to just upload it instead of uploading a new PNG and then going in to replace it in Bulbapedia. And for the old JPG images I've recently replaced with PNGs can you delete them? There was something about Archeive Cleanup [sic?] month somewhere. Are they automatically deleted when they're not linked anywhere? I'm sure I asked a few more questions in the PM but I can't remember right now..

And I screwed up here ( When I uploaded the image it showed up as the original one so I reuploaded it and it was changed. I guess I should wait a while, refresh the page, and then check if it's uploaded correctly. --Coololz 13:09, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

There's no such thing as "PMs" on a wiki, dude. Anyway, no, you can't upload pngs as jpgs or gifs or vice versa. Put the {{delete}} tag on there and you should be fine. And after uploading a new version of a file you have to hard refresh twice to force it to update across the servers and in your cache. TTEchidna 20:28, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

Hey, uh...

Your ultra-high-res wish be granted. --Mew a.k.a. Immewnity 20:18, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Where'd it come from? And where are the rest? TTEchidna 09:54, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
I'm on to uploading them. They were from this page. I love that site now.--Mew a.k.a. Immewnity 13:12, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
The French site again! Ah, that's where we got the high-res Pt art. I swear that's gotta be the file Sugimori himself saved out from Photoshop. TTEchidna 03:54, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Parlyz Heal

Does not have an "a" between "r" and "l". UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 18:31, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

It doesn't? Dammit, this is another freaking Electirizer issue. TTEchidna 19:04, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

VS 89313628.png

Can I upload this image? Is from HG/SS and we can use it as this:

link= (game)
89313628.png VSBertha.png

Only that, before uploading it, someone can put it transparent because I don't know put images transparent. So only that... Thanks. --Poke nav 21:06, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

Got GIMP? It'll let you transparentize it. TTEchidna 05:36, 12 October 2009 (UTC)


Why'd you upload an image of Gideon? ht14 01:28, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

Starter Pokémon artwork

Gideon aside (see above), what is that fiasco about? ht14 02:25, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Some jerkface on Serebii is hotlinking. TTEchidna 06:37, 20 January 2010 (UTC)


How'd you do that? It's perfectly CMYK->RGB!--immewnitythemew 13:19, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

I just altered the brightness and contrast... TTEchidna 05:51, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Route 10

You're a Administrator, so, you can please change the image of this article to :File:HGSS Route 10.png, and add the image to this template, please? Because i can't edit in Bulbapedia... --Gabo 2oo 01:31, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

I suggest that you'd wait at the moment. They're currently revamping everything to HGSS standard, so I think they should finish that up first. The best way would be via forums though. ht14 02:07, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
