Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, Michail2003!

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!

Anime screenshots

Hello. Thank you for your contribution to the Team Rocket images. But just to make sure you know, it is preferred that screenshots of the anime be in the png format. Please keep that in mind next time. Ataro (talk) 15:45, 12 January 2018 (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. --ht14 19:56, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

Hello, please remember to keep this in mind when uploading images. Ataro (talk) 18:35, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
Again, please remember to keep this in mind. If this keeps up, action may need to be taken. Ataro (talk) 19:43, 21 May 2018 (UTC)


Images need to be uploaded in the .png format, not .jpg. Thank you.--Force Fire (talk) 13:14, 19 April 2018 (UTC)


Please, be sure to add proper descriptions and templates to the pictures you upload. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 05:28, 29 May 2018 (UTC)


Because of your decision to ignore your warnings about tagging images, you have been blocked for a week. In the meantime, please peruse how to tag and categorize all images in the Archives. Further decisions to ignore this warning will result in a longer block. Thank you. ht14 21:14, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

Summaries for images

Hello! I noticed that while you have been categorizing images, you have not been (1) adding a summary to the section, and (2) adding a license. Additionally, the addition of the anime screenshots category is already embedded in the anime screenshot license. Considering that you have failed to do any of these previously, consider this to be your final warning; otherwise, you may be blocked for another week. Please ask me any questions if you're confused about any of this. ht14 17:44, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

See here as an example of what I am talking about. I hope this further clarifies things. ht14 17:47, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

About images

You know, if you add the correct licensing template, you have no need to separately add the "Anime screenshos category". Also, see the edits done did to your images of Team Rocket's mottos from the Best Wishes and Diamond & Pearl series to see an example of how you should be doing it and the descriptions for your images.
Speaking of which, please add descriptions to all the images you upload. It's how it's supposed to be. Also, how about labeling your Team Rocket disguise pictures as "Team Rocket disguises" instead of just "Disguises"? Just a friendly suggestion. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 15:44, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

Also, the quality of your images is less than stellar. If you can't acess a good quality version of an image, please ask someone who has rather than uploading a bad image. Like the Team Rocket pictures you've just uploaded. Especially watch out for those visible dub logos: they're not allowed here. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 10:01, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

Linking to articles in Bulbapedia

Hello! When linking to articles in Bulbapedia, instead of using the brackets ([[]]), please use the {{bp}} template instead. Using the square brackets will link to a non-existent article in the Archives. Thanks! ht14 18:06, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

Hey! Make sure that you're linking to Bulbapedia articles properly. Please let me know if you have any questions here. ht14 19:11, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

Image descriptions

Be noted that if an episode has a dub title, you should add the dub title to the episode link, not just the episode code. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 12:09, 21 July 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for your help in this! One final thing - make sure you italicize the dub title (''). Thanks~! ht14 20:48, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
Exactly. Please start doing that too. Also, while not 100% necessary, it'd help if you put proper descriptions. Like "A(n) <equipment> used by Team Rocket in <episode>", instead of just "A(n) <equipment> used in <episode>. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:20, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
Okay, also, I accidently misnamed [[File:Mecha AG094.png]] can you please move it? Michail2003 (talk) 11:30, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
Please put such requests onto the talk page of a user you want to contact, not your own. Also, didn't you notice that you need to put the italicizing signs on both sides of the word you want to italicize. Like how I just did with the word "both". --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:06, 3 August 2019 (UTC)
I knew, I just forgot. I've already corrected that. --Michail2003 (talk) 05:07, 5 August 2019 (UTC)
Does every single step need to be told you separately? Don't italicize the entire description, just the title. Also, don't forget to put in categories for every character who appears in the picture. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 05:54, 5 August 2019 (UTC)
You're getting the hang of this! A small extra tip: we have separate categories for notable Pokémon of certain species, like "Meowth (Team Rocket)", "Ash's Pikachu", and "Dawn's Piplup". --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:21, 6 August 2019 (UTC)
Also, don't add a comma into "Item/Machine/etc. used by Team Rocket". --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:25, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
