Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, Eevee obsessed 008!

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 do not upload files with non-alphanumeric characters in its name. The only characters allowed are A-Z, a-z, and 0-9. If you're confused about the requirements for uploading files, have a look at this guide. --ht14 17:30, 16 February 2010 (UTC)


The images you're uploading come from the anime, so please use {{i-Fairuse-screenshot-anime}} for the licensing instead of just {{i-Fairuse-screenshot}}. Also, I hope you're not just saving .jpg screenshots as .png, try to take the screenshot yourself and save it as .png the first time. PNG's are used mainly because they are of high quality, so try to take screenshots that are higher quality then the ones you are currently uploading. You can also have spaces in the filenames, so instead of Butchprimeape.png you can also upload it as Butch Primeape.png. Hope that helps. - Jello 19:49, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

And another thing- If you're going to upload pics, just make sure they are 342x192 or bigger. You uploaded some good quality ones, some bad, but just keep this in mind. --Hmdwgf 04:06, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Christy art

Is it for personal use? Then yes. Otherwise, no. Fan-made characters for a fan-made game that is made without Nintendo's participation are not accepted pictures and will be deleted immediately unless it's for personal use (which in most cases they are). Also, please sign your comments by clicking on the second farthest button to the right, which is the timestamp: the one with the signature on it. --Hmdwgf 01:34, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Marking stuff

If you're going to upload images for personal use, please do so. It's there in the scroll bar. Don't mark them as coming from the actual games then give a summary saying that they are for personal use. By doing so, you mix up the images and they end up being wrongly categorized and put into the wrong place. The sysops won't like that. And go make some mainspace contributions, as most people won't want you around here because you're only working on your profile and not really doing the site any benefit. I don't mean to be extreme, but people have been kicked off the site for only working on their profile and not really doing anything useful. --Hmdwgf 05:28, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
