If you have something to say to me, please say it on my Bulbapedia talk page. I'd like to keep all messages in one place.

Thank you. UltimateSephiroth 18:02, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Yellow sprites

When uploading the Yellow sprites, please make sure to use Template:TL on thier descriptions. Chocolate 22:27, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Oh... I guess I should. But we have to alert an admin; it links them to Category:Pokémon Red and Blue sprites, not Category:Pokémon Yellow sprites. UltimateSephiroth 22:29, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
I'll tell Maverick Nate. But, when using the template, you can just upload the image with the description as {{Spr 1y|(Pokémon)|Pokémon's National Dex number}}. You don't need to select a license when uploading if you use the template. Chocolate 22:32, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I found it out already, as you can see in the newest ones. :P UltimateSephiroth 22:32, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
All right. Good job on ripping the sprites BTW. They're awesome quality! Chocolate 22:34, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
Thanks :D It took a little time, but sure was worth it. It's about time we get rid of those old, wrong-sized, wrong direction facing gif images. UltimateSephiroth 22:38, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Gen IV size

Just wondering, what is the standard size for Gen IV spites? I want to say 80x80, but I'm not 100% sure. Jpp8 04:36, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip

My Photoshop is out of order, so it's hard for me to judge image sizes using MS Paint. I'll be far more precise once I get that back. Also, can I assume that when you said to upload sprites as transparent, you meant the backgrounds (as opposed to white)? -Stephen93 16:42, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

You can see the image size via the Attributes (or similar; I don't have an English MS Paint), which is located under the Image menu. However, do not use MS Paint. It cannot make the image background transparent (yes, I meant the background, not the whole sprite :P). If you only can, download for example GIMP. It may be a little hard at first but it can do a lot of things. UltimateSephiroth 18:22, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I definitely wasn't going to upload anything done with Paint after what you told me, but now Photoshop is up and running again, and I'd like to take a load off of everyone's shoulders and help with the Spritedex- I'm just stuck on one thing: I have two shiny Gligar backsprites, one with all the white pixels transparified, including the ones on Gligar's body, and one with only the outer white pixels transparified- which one meets qualifications for uploading?
Sorry for bothering you so much, I just want to make myself useful around here :D. Thanks alot! -Stephen93 19:51, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
EDIT: Just noticed you want all your messages on Bulbapedia talkpage, so I'll move it there after if you would like.
The one with only the white pixels not part of Gligar is correct. If somebody would use the picture in BP on a red template, we don't want its back to turn partially into red. And don't worry, if somebody starts the conversation here, it's okay to me, that notice is just there so the people would start the conversation there. If it is started here, then it'll stay here.

Minor edits

Over on Bulbapedia, you mark almost all of your edits as minor, but here, you mark hardly any of them as minor. How come? Chocolate 20:46, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

It's basically because of I haven't fixed my preferences here in Archives yet. I have in BP the setting that an edit is minor by default on, and therefore I seldom remember to look if the box actually has the check on it ('cause most of my edits really are minor). UltimateSephiroth 20:54, 22 December 2008 (UTC)


You're doing awesome with the sprites! Chocolate 16:17, 25 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! :D I'm just thinking what I should do next... Maybe I'll have a little break from the sprite job and resume my Pokémon Card GB 2 playing rumba (I think somebody told that he'd do the RB sprites, and I have the feeling that Jpp8 will do at least the resizing of Silver sprites).

Image Source

Do you know a Pokémon website with great quality image which is NOT .jpg, .gif ect.. I'm just wonderin' where to find some images. BTW are the Platinum sprites suppose to be animated?--Force Fire 15:12, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

If you mean by "images" the anime screenshots, at least I take them directly from the episodes (with clear 640x480 resolution) I've downloaded via a torrent. And yes, I think both DP and Pt sprites should be animated like Image:Spr 4p 001.png is - TTEchidna has though said that ###.png ones should not be animated. UltimateSephiroth 15:16, 26 December 2008 (UTC)


Are you able to get anime screenshots as pngs? If so, I have a little task that I would appreciate if you could help with. If you can only replace one, that would be great, but if you want to do more, that be fantastic! Want to know about it? Maverick Nate 15:19, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, tell about it, I'm glad to help :) (though my HD is not large enough to have all 11 seasons at once so I have to DL episodes again if I want to get any image material out of them, but that's no problem :P ; currently I have certain Indigo League episodes and the whole Johto League Champions season) UltimateSephiroth 15:25, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
Well, you can do what I did. I burned the episodes onto dvds and stored them away into a cd case. I have the first six seasons and the Chronicles... but I don't know how to take pngs of episodes. I'd like to learn but not at the moment now. But, take a look at the List of anime episodes. Notice anything? None of the head images are pngs. (except for a few). I was hoping you could get new ones (preferably of the same screenshot, but that is not necessary) beause most are gifs and horrible quality. I wanted to make it so that each head image had the epicode for a name and lowercase png as the extension. Do you think you could help? Maverick Nate 15:34, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I can help with them :P I put the first episodes again to be downloaded, so I think I'll manage to get at least some of them done today (goin' sleep somewhere about 02-03:00 UTC, so I have a lot of time :P) UltimateSephiroth 15:40, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
