Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, BlueSparkles!

By creating your account you are now able to upload images to help Bulbapedia and Bulbanews. Before you jump in, take a look at these helpful tips:

  • Uploaded images must meet several requirements. Please see the upload form and/or manual of style before you upload a new image.
  • All images need categories and license tags. Save time and fill them out as you upload. There are many different licenses - be sure to pick the best fit.
  • Use meaningful filenames. Make them descriptive so that searchers can find your images easily.
  • Personal images are no longer allowed. Any personal images found will be deleted on sight.
  • If you don't have any images to submit, you can still help out.
  • If you have any more questions, see the FAQ or ask a staff member.
Thank you, and have a good time uploading here!

Image size

When uploading new images or upgrading existing ones, could you please make sure the images are the correct size, for episodes prior to DP120, 640x480 is preferred with 1280x720 for episodes after that.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 16:05, 2 August 2023 (UTC)

Just letting you know, the guidance BigDocFan gave you is a little outdated now, native resolution 1080p (1920x1080) screenshots are also allowed. 4iamking 17:41, 7 August 2023 (UTC)
Polite reminder that images can now be 1920x1080.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 00:20, 5 October 2023 (UTC)
Noticed you're still uploading images at 1280x720, you do know we can upload them as 1920x1080--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 17:42, 2 January 2024 (UTC)

Ash Lucario training with Greninja

I've removed your request to delete Ash Greninja training Lucario in favour of your Ash Lucario training with Greninja, Ash Greninja training Lucario is a shorter title and that image was uploaded first so have requested your image to be deleted.--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 14:00, 5 September 2023 (UTC)


Hi, we've reverted the changes you to made to the following files: File:Misty_JN.png, File:Brock_JN.png, File:Tracey_JN.png, and File:Cilan_JN.png, as well as marked the following files you've uploaded for deletion: File:Misty_JN_anime.png, File:Tracey_JN_anime.png, and File:Cilan_JN_anime.png. The images you uploaded appear to be fan art, which is why they have been reverted, and the duplicates have been marked for deletion. In the future, please try to make sure that any art you upload, even if it looks official, comes from an official source before uploading. Thank you. Landfish7 (talk) 04:56, 11 September 2023 (UTC)

Additionally, if you believe that an existing image should be moved to a different filename (e.g. because you want to use its current filename for a different image), please add a {{move}} notice to the page, instead of reuploading it. Reuploading an image loses the file history, the preservation of which is important. --SnorlaxMonster 05:06, 11 September 2023 (UTC)

Renaming images

I noticed that you uploaded File:Kanto starters anime.png, which was a duplicate of File:Cerise Kanto Starters.png. If you think a filename should be changed, please place {{move}} on the page instead of uploading a duplicate image. --SnorlaxMonster 12:28, 10 October 2023 (UTC)

Ash Pikachu EP001

Just letting you know that I am unable to move Ash Pikachu EP001 because we already have an image with the name Ash Pikachu debut--BigDocFan, Junior Admin Bulbapedia (talk) 12:50, 17 December 2023 (UTC)
