Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, Handmaiden 101!

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!

Uploading manga images

Hello. I would like to inform you that when uploading images from a Pokemon manga, it must be from a scan. We here prefer quality, and a slanted, blurry image taken from a camera photo does not meet those standards. Ataro (talk) 20:25, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Anime screenshots

It's just the source where I get them from. In some cases though, I edit them in Photoshop to sharpen the picture (or sharpen edges only if the background is good) so it looks clearer. Sometimes I even adjust the levels or contrast if the picture is too dark or bright, but just a bit and without messing with the colors, since the Archives standards aim for minimal alteration. That's pretty much it :)

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 22:30, 3 June 2015 (UTC)


Hey, I'm really glad you're helping out with the anime uploads. Two things though! (1) Don't forget the special accented e in Pokémon when writing out a summary. I had to change one of the categories because it was improperly named. (2) Familiarize yourself with the {{p}} and {{an}} templates. They refer to the Pokémon page and anime pages, respectively. Their function is exactly the same as in Bulbapedia, so if you're familiar with them there, you'll be fine here as well. Feel free to ask me any questions on your talkpage.
