Categorize the sprites when you upload them! Files are just like pages on Bulbapedia, they must be categorized! Categorize them by at least the Pokémon names and generation. Also, don't just upload them as just fairuse, upload them as sprite fairuse by choosing the "Sprite from a Pokémon game" option on the scroll when you upload them. For example, a front sprite of a shiny Diglett from Crystal should have these categories, as well as the sprite fairuse: [[Category:Diglett]][[Category:Pokémon Crystal sprites (shiny)]]. A normal front sprite of Diglett from Crystal should have, as well as the sprite fairuse: [[Category:Diglett]][[Category:Pokémon Crystal sprites]]. Not categorizing pages correctly will cause so many more problems later, so please, do it from now on. Moldy orange 18:52, 11 August 2008 (UTC)


Please read the checklist when you upload media files, and be sure to tag and categorize all images. If you're confused about the requirements for uploading files, have a look at this guide. --Kevzo8 13:02, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

For any artworks/screenshots of maps/locations, always use [[Category:Location artwork]]. Or you can just check the older route maps. Also, lowercase the extension name please. png not PNG. Thanks, Kevzo8 11:02, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Mystery Dungeon

Don't use Category:Mystery Dungeon sprites. That is for some thing completely different. Use Category:Location artwork. MaverickNate 22:34, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Crystal images

Do you think you can make them transparent? Thanks. ht14 03:05, 14 November 2009 (UTC)


Don't put your username in image titles. And if you can, upload new versions of previous files. MaverickNate 22:21, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
