Welcome to the Bulbagarden Archives, Wowy!

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!

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 19:11, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

Manga volume file name

Hi! I've noticed you started adding images for those Korean manga volumes we were talking about earlier. That's great (and on the Bulbapedia side, everything's good) but just a quick FYI about file names: I noticed you uploaded many images at "File:KXX.png" I understand that you were probably just following the example of old images for consistency's sake (since unfortunately nobody's bothered to rename them) but this is not in line with the current naming standards. Going forward, all images should be like:

File:[Name of series] [region] volume [#].png

This will fit most manga volume images. Note that all countries should use the ISO codes as seen in Template:Langtable. So for Korea, this would be KO. The exception to this is English due to multiple publishers existing for English language across many regions. In this case, "VIZ", "CY" (for Chuang Yi) or "SA" (Shogakukan Asia) should be used. In the case of second editions, the first edition should get the "clean" title and the subsequent editions should have "Ed #" at the end of the file name. For example:

File:Pokémon Adventures KO volume 1 Ed 2.png

I'll be checking the volume pages (mainly starting from Pokémon Adventures) and cleaning up these inconsistent file names for now. You're not in trouble or anything, just letting you know the correct format for future uploads. Thanks again for your contributions! --ZestyCactus 04:01, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up! Yeah, I just followed the existing file names and I wasn't sure about the naming convention. Sorry for all the hassle this would have caused! --Wowy (talk) 05:52, 6 April 2016 (UTC)


I like how you're uploading move images from Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games, but shouldn't those images also be added to their proper move pages on Bulbapedia? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:25, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

The template isn't currently supported for GTI or SMD. To my understanding, the staff are planning on making a new template that doesn't require constant updating. I know Lady Ariel has had a go at making that said template, but I don't know what progress has been made besides that. Wowy (talk) 09:57, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

Proper template

When uploading a location picture, remember that there is a template for those kinds of pages to use: Template:Location. Using it also automatically adds the picture to Category:Location artwork. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:10, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

Duplicate image

Hey, I was updating the Bulbapedia page on Trainer customization when I found that the image you uploaded, File:SwSh Trainer Customization.png, already existed at File:SwSh Prerelease player selection.png. I was gonna add the delete tag to the newer image and keep the other image (since it was uploaded first), but I noticed that the newer image has a smaller size. Is there a way to merge the two pages and preserve the edit histories? Similar to what was done for this page. I'd appreciate you looking into it. Thanks, → SuperPikaPool13 11:58, 4 September 2023 (UTC)

Eh, I'll just delete mine as there isn't really any history to preserve besides mine.--Wowy (talk) 03:29, 14 September 2023 (UTC)
I mean, using the newer image with a smaller file size and better name might've been better, but this works too. Thanks for your help. → PikaTepig999 21:28, 5 October 2023 (UTC)

Victini's Final Gambit and Kecleon's Shadow Sneak

Where did you get those pictures of Victini using Final Gambit and Kecleon using Shadow Sneak in "Gates to Infinity"?? I thought they can't be recruited!! N. Harmonik (talk) 19:30, 12 September 2023 (UTC)

It's been a long time since I remember obtaining those images. They were likely given by Lady Ariel for me to upload. I never really played GtI so I wasn't aware that you couldn't recruit Kecleon or Victini. Can any other Pokémon in GtI obtain those moves that we might be able to take a screenshot of? --Wowy (talk) 03:29, 14 September 2023 (UTC)
Assuming GtI copies the movepools of Gen V exactly, I'd say, "No, other Pokémon can't". I suppose it's possible that the Kecleon who fight you after you steal from them might use Shadow Sneak though. N. Harmonik (talk) 15:48, 14 September 2023 (UTC)
I'm assuming Victini can't be battled in dungeons? If so, we should remove the image from the page, but we can keep the image and just note that it's an unobtainable unused image but present in the game data. I very much suspect Kecleon does use Shadow Sneak in dungeons (it does so in SMD). We can keep it there for now but we should try to replace it with an appropriate image when we do get one, and place an unsatisfactory image tag.--Wowy (talk) 09:56, 18 September 2023 (UTC)
No, Victini can't be battled in dungeons. Is there a template for something that's an unobtainable unused image that's present in the game data? N. Harmonik (talk) 21:59, 18 September 2023 (UTC)
Not that I'm aware of, no --Wowy (talk) 07:52, 23 September 2023 (UTC)
