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, TheShinyMew!

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!

I did tagged and categorized. I don't know if I missed any captial letters. --TheShinyMew 00:59, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Dear Nate

Does Pikablu delete things that are un-notable? --TheShinyMew 04:34, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Overworld sprites

Standard size is 32 x 32. Also, the image wasn't animated... ht14 16:19, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Regarding your "images"

Unless you're planning on using them on your userpage (at most 2), they're to be deleted. Sorry. ht14 01:17, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

This is your second warning. Pick two or all will be deleted. ht14 20:41, 2 November 2010 (UTC)
Personal images are limited to 2 per user. Pick the two that you want to keep, or I will decide for you. You have a choice between :File:Shiny Mew.jpg, :File:Spr 5b 249-Shadow.png, :File:Spr 5b 572-sh.png. Jellotalk 20:12, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
Just like Bulbapedia, user page editing is limited to 3. You've made 3 here and 1 on Bulbapedia. You still haven't told me which image you want deleted. Jellotalk 20:21, 3 November 2010 (UTC)


Sorry, but personal images are no longer allowed. Please refrain from further activities related to custom sprites. Thank you. Masatoshitalk 05:56, 5 March 2012 (UTC)


You're not permitted to upload personal images, or images unrelated to improving Bulbapedia. Jo The Marten 01:46, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

It's just April Fools! TheShinyMew 01:48, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

That's irrelevant. You are not allowed to break the rules just because of a holiday. Jo The Marten 02:22, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
So? TheShinyMew 02:26, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
So personal images aren't allowed on any date. They're not allowed on a boat, they're not allowed with a goat, they're not allowed with a fox, and they're not allowed in a box. They aren't allowed here or there. They are not allowed anywhere. So don't upload them, under any circumstances. Also, please properly indent your comments. Jo The Marten 02:51, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

OK!!!!!!!! TheShinyMew 03:42, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Merchandise images

When uploading Merchandise images, please make sure to add the corresponding Merchandise categories, thanks. G50 01:06, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
